EtcetEraThread A glowing celebration of America's flag.
Reason User warned: sniping, ignoring staff post
The one thing that I always find very weird about US communists is that their entire project hinges on the US military being willing to overthrow the US government (as US-based militias stand no chance against the US military in combat), but they also constantly are against the institutions that are generally aligned with the US military as well as the US military itself. It just comes off as so bad tactically to make the whole thing seem like a LARP.

On one thread we are denouncing gun ownership as it leads to horrific violence and on another thread pretty much giving someone license to kill over a shove. You can see he is simply annoyed not in fear of his life for fuck sake. People need to be able to restrain themselves better, too many people are happy to resort to violence for fucking anything.

I'm not saying an opposing one is a hive mind, I'm saying using the same rhetoric and talking points that are rattled off in this thread, and even the dismissive laughing, is indication of a hive mind. Also - your assertions are bold, I'll give you that, but I don't understand the reason for trying to drown the idea before it even has some level of fruition (unless you just get off on hating anything new/trendy, in which case go ahead).

Reason User warned: cross-forum drama
I got yelled at in the politics OT this week for suggesting how inept Biden and his team are and how the Democrats fucking suck and are leading us to shit and have been for 50 years. Nice seeing that shit deals like this are still being made by the Biden admin. Keep voting ya'll! One day they will finally listen to us. Im sure of it. Like I said in the OT - if you're some kind of minority, for your own good, please look to leave the USA behind cause shit is gonna get down right ugly for you all these next 20 years here. Unfortunately, the party that was supposed to be looking out for you all is too asleep at the wheel, or just plain old corrupt, to do anything about it. Fuck the GOP, Biden, and the Democrats.

EtcetEraThread Biden: I'd support changing filibuster to codify Roe v. Wade
Reason User banned (1 week): inflammatory commentary
I’m going to answer your question. First and foremost, K-12 public “education” in America is not actually education, it’s indoctrination. They don’t actually teach history in America or civics. At best the schools teach white supremacist ideology, and worst, schools public function as pipelines to prison. If you’d like, I’m happy to tell you what kind of education children receive in American prisons. Now, as for what I expect Biden to do, I expect him to continue making deals to keep refugee children in cages, or helping McConnell decide which federal judges he’d like to give life time appointments to. Which frankly is par for the course. Do I expect him to beat senators or challenge people to a duel? Don’t be silly. Biden’s goal is to uphold American colonialism and imperialism, not work on behalf of his constituents.

EtcetEraThread New Florida Law Makes Blasting Music in Car A Punishable Offense
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Troll Account
If you're blasting your trash music in the vicinity of others, as if others don't require silence for anything they want to do, you know what you're doing, and since you don't care about others' quality of life, no one else should feel bad whether or not you feel like shit for being punished for it. It will be briefly humorous, at the very least, for everyone else. For the many that are prematurely assuming this will unfairly target minorities, it's almost as if you want them to, so you can congratulate yourselves when it becomes true. The thing is, all of you might be exactly right, but we don't know that yet. Also, how would you even know it actually targeted minorities? Assuming Florida's police are corrupt enough, which probably aligns with said assumptions, they could just falsify or make up their stats. And then, assuming they actually recorded videos, retained evidence, and do everything to apply the law prudently, will the negative assumptions still be there? I just don't understand the need to prematurely whine about something that hasn't happened yet, and yet, everyone also whines about there not being enough evidence or that there's too much corruption or some other things that are directly related to automatically assuming others are assholes and lying. I'm surprised that at least one moderator has prematurely made this about race, somehow, with no presented evidence. Is this how the forum is operated? Will this post be deleted?

EtcetEraThread Supreme Court overturns Roe v Wade (See Staff Post)
Reason User Banned (2 Weeks): Trolling over multiple posts
Assume that every dollar donated to the Democrats goes into Pelosi's stock portfolio and Obama's Netflix show. These people will never lift a finger to work in your interest. They were out having their egos tickled over a free lunch with their private health insurance industry lobbyist friends when they heard this news, and they responded by having one of their unpaid aides type up a quick thoughts & prayers tweet. The Republicans are the party of true evil, the Democrats are the party of going "golly gee we didn't think they'd actually do it, that sucks for you" while they do insider trading. Imagine the hardship and suffering that these people cause or allow to happen every day of their working lives. Imagine the evil that Biden has personally helped with, if not spearheaded, over his decades in politics, being on the wrong side of every major decision for longer than most of us have been alive (and that's BEFORE he got to just literally kill people with the drone strike button). I lose sleep over wondering if I was accidentally rude to someone I had a 20 second encounter with that day, these people sleep soundly after letting something like this happen. Ghouls. Rotten on the inside. (Before someone gets on my case, yes I think you should still vote for them. They will never work proactively to help you, and there will always be some excuse for why they can't, but at least while they're in power the Republicans will only be able to reshape the entire country to their whims at a slightly slower pace. That seems to be about the best you can hope for.)

I currently have no income, and even I could scrounge up enough money by selling my possessions for a bus/Amtrak ticket out of town to somewhere more progressive. I'm queer too, and if I lived in Texas right now, I'd be saving every penny I have to escape. Y'all see the queer equivalent of Handmaids Tale playing out in front of our eyes in Texas, don't you? Those telling folks to stay put makes me think of those telling Jewish people in Germany in the early 1930s to stay put. Remind me again, what good did that do?

Yes. What's hypocritical about it? I listed out three options for everyone here. Fight, get out, or sit on your ass. I chose the second since 2016 and worked my ass to make it a reality. The admin is more than welcome to ban me for my "extremism", I've been quite vocal about revolutionary change that require the blood and death of innocents amidst our current political apathy, because that's how progress has worked 100% time through human history; and we sure are not at an enlightened point to play civility with America being prime example. I've made these calls many times in the past. I just, y'know, focused on my actual real life to do something about it instead of wasting energy accruing Internet points on here hence my lack of post count despite my little "been here since Oct 2017" tag. Edit: I'll even quote my "extremism" from before that still applies even today. Progress does not happen without blood and death.
