EtcetEraThread Are Political Defeatists on Era just secret Trump Supporters?
Reason User Warned: Please don't make threads for the sake of attempting to label other users
You go into a political thread on here, and you'll often find certain posts that don't really make sense. Like "nothing will come of this" or "this will only increase his approval ratings" or "this is wrong, it's only going to be four more years of Trump" or "the Blue Wave is dead now..." What seems like defeatism is sounding more and more like back-handed Trump support. Like people from other forums are coming in and trying to cause discourse. They know the usual "MAGA DRAIN THE SWAP LIBTARD CUCKS" method won't work here so they're "hiding it". The same way the "alt-right" hides their bigoted Nazi beliefs with double-speak. These people often show up when an outlier poll showing the Dems going down appears, or all that crap about Trump getting the Nobel Peace Prize. Am I just being paranoid and worried from the recent news? I don't want to die in nukes...

EtcetEraThread Mentally preparing myself for Republicans controlling Congress even after mid-terms
Reason User banned (3 days): ignoring a modpost by continuing to insinuate that another user is a Nazi sympathizer.
Yeah, but also see I specifically said the only moderates getting called Nazi sympathizers are those doing it, which lead to his silly overly defensive response, but whatever little narrative you want to go with Do you demand a spot in the conversation for Nazis? You still haven't answered that question. If you don't, then you're not a Nazi sympathizer, but if you do, you are. As far as the rest, I'm not Jesus, and I'm sure not going to shoulder your choice not to vote. You don't vote, that's your choice. You want someone to pin sin on, you can go to church, that shit ain't on me, no matter how much you want to make it about me

EtcetEraThread Mentally preparing myself for Republicans controlling Congress even after mid-terms
Reason User warned: trolling and bringing up off-site content
I do wonder how badly some of the other posters at the Old Place took it when Trump won. I still vividly remember the complete confidence so many of them had when some people started to panic that Trump might win. They were calm, almost paternal, in their complete and utter certainty that people were freaking out over nothing. I wonder if those people have accepted what happened, or whether their minds snapped and they continue on to this day, greeting other people and talking about living another great day in a USA with another Clinton in office. They were so, SO sure that Trump as President was impossible and were almost condescending to people that thought it might be happening.

People need to own up to the other side of being "catfished" and that is that you put yourself in that position. Sucked what the person did, but it is just creepy that you are still grinding on it. If you still need some kind of closure about it, instead of talking to that person talk to a therapist because there is much more going on.

The only thing that would work on republicans is mass targeted violence against them and their families. I'm convinced that fear for their physical well being is the only thing that would get through to them. That's how far their higher order thinking has deteriorated. That's how little they care. Protest? They dismiss it all as fake. They are evil. I call my GOP rep every week. Not once have I gotten a sincere response that addressedthe points I raised, no matter how firmly I present and limit the topic of discussion. And they've been this way for as long as I can remember, in my 30 years on this earth. They don't care. They never have

EtcetEraThread The Guardian: "How white women use strategic tears to avoid accountability"
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Attempting to dictate the terms of discussion surrounding race.
So first off, this isn't a thread about racism? Then what is it? Why is it 'inane'? Because you describe it as such? Are you trying to suggest that people don't engage in the behavior I describe? Are you basically diasavowing human behavioral science? It absolutely benefits people to do so. You, as someone who has suffered under the pressures of institutional racism, feel that is the most severe of all forms of oppression. Is that more severe than a pacifist suffering under a culture of war? You are suggesting so, but is murdering other humans for profit and power an ethically better behavior than disliking them based on skin color? Both stem from human natural instincts and need checked by civilized behavioral controls. These controls are instituted at a society wide level both via culture and education. You completely misunderstood my point because you are caught in your own battle. And it's a noble one, no doubt. Don't assume people disbelieve in institutional racism just because they are giving you ideas as to a better strategy with which to accomplish your goals. That's short sighted and shows you didn't really read, absorb, and comprehend what I wrote...that you dismissed it out of hand and assumed it was coming from the same place you assume everyone that criticizes you comes from. So what do you do on a daily basis to interact with the institutionally disadvantaged? Do you work with the poor? The mentally ill? The disabled? How are you involved with other segments of society that are equally disadvantaged regardless of skin composition? Equally invisible, neglected, loathed...called losers out of hand by people of all backgrounds. Or is your only issue, one issue that is personal and specific? You just attempt to adopt a distasteful, dismissive point of view that doesn't allow any new information into your world. It's unhealthy for building any allies or comprehensive society wide power structures which could in fact be used to turn the weight of set institutions away from the people you claim to care about. You are a provocateur, when you should be trying to be a leader.

Oh my fucking god, are you serious? Can you get a fucking history book, mate? The fact that you can fucking vote at all is a result of "white supremacy loosing (because of the various election cycles)". You can not be this ignorant. Because rapid, sudden change equals rapid, sudden backlash. The worst and consequently best things happen when a seed planted and left to grow over time, not to sprout immediately. The Civil Rights Movement is a long series of protests, speeches, events, courts, etc., no one just fucking said "hey, let's just let black people sit in the front!" Absolutely fucking maddening, this fucking progress denialism bullshit. "Oh well actually we're all still just slaves and nothing changed for the better ever! We're all doomed! We'll all be oppressed forever! And the only way we can stop it is ! YEAH! PROGRESSIVENESS! WOKENESS!!!"

EtcetEraThread Metropolitan Museum's Vatican fashion event leads to interesting Catholic-style clothing choices
Reason User warned: inflammatory comparisons
Stop what? I'm expressing my dislike for a theme that is actively embracing a horrible element of the institution such as genocide, not religion or adherents of Catholicism, unless you are unaware, there's a pretty big difference between that and the institution, today and in history... Should I stop what, get down and grovel at the feet of the Catholic conservatives that defend the institution? Should I stop before I offend these poor people? Maybe it's easy for some to ignore things like the harmful missionary worked propped up by the institution that is ongoing in the world among other issues. There's a big problem with the institution and I think having a theme that embraces the institution's elements is wrong. I'm not talking about adherents, I'm talking about the institution itself, which is what this theme is embracing such as its symbolism, the institution has a history and continued perpetration of awful shit. The institution is equatable to the Nazis in many ways, of course the most well known is its campaigns of genocide, which this theme itself was celebrating too.

Millenials basically used the job market and student loans as an excuse to freeload off their parents just so they could accumulate wealth by not paying rent. Now they are buying very nice houses, whereas as people who worked hard and lived on their own post graduation (aka behaved like adults) are left struggling, unable to find appropriate housing for themselves and family. Millenials love playing the victim while reaping nothing but benefits from the goodwill of others—mainly their parents. They are parasites.

Reason User Warned: Derailment - Stop arguing about the language of attribution
I do not feel superior to sports fans (neither to those who use this phrasing), I just have an issue with this, because I think it is unfair to attribute other people's successes to oneself. If it is purely emotionally, then this is fine, because you cannot control it, but if it is linguistically, then it is a deliberate dicision to do so. Also, I have a strong inclination towards correctness and clarity in language, so I have issues with all kinds of deliberate imprecisions.

Also, smh at people calling him "a piece of shit." Yesterday you all thought he was a great person. People have issues, and I'm glad he's resigned over this, but there's no reason to dehumanize a person over what are relatively common flaws. Part of this vitriol is why our prisons are so needlessly full and why we are not seeing much focus on actual rehabilitation in our prisons. Good people would feel compassion for both the victims and the perpetrator.
