Good to see the left-wing argument is now, "millions of working-class people should've been sent into unemployment, and then forced to retrain for different jobs they didn't want. I'm sure that wouldn't lead to any sort of fascist bacxlash when another politician came around and said, 'they took away their jobs, and want to force you to get another job just because they care more about trees and grass than the average working man!"

ReasonUser Banned (Until July 22): Second violation of the primary OT staff post
[I agree, that was unfair. Let me edit - judging from the reaction on this thread, the vast majority of Sander's supporters on this forum seem to agree with the Senator that every employee of the Washington Post, even if they had worked there before he bought that paper, are all part of Jeff Bezo's personal goon squad.

ReasonUser Banned (1 Week): Ignoring Staff Post with Regards to Metacommentary
I think either would be great (well, as long as somebody has veto power over some of Bernie's choices in staff), but the issue is, if it was just Twitter, it'd be one thing, but the last three months have been Bernie supporters here declaring Warren to be a sellout.

ReasonUser Banned (3 Weeks): Inflammatory false equivalences surrounding gender and race across a series of posts
So, if it's OK for black men to make harsh sarcastic jokes about women, then it should be totally OK for women to make racist jokes about black guys, as long as they're sarcastic and if you criticiaze them alll, that just proves you're a sexist, right?I mean, putting aside we have no actual proof of this, even if Daisy is OK with this, there's likely plenty of female Star War fans upset with Boyega making a gross joke about a female character in Star Wars.
Now, I realize, many of them probably aren't True Fans, but their opinions matter as well.Plenty of people in this thread seem to think repeating 'racist' over and over again makes something racist.

ReasonUser banned (3 weeks): trolling and antagonizing other members over a series of posts, long history of infractions for trolling similar threads
Like I said, an ideological choice.I mean, it's allowed a lot of developers to be far more financially secure, which I realize to Steam fans, just means you're a lazy, greedy developer who doesn't care about true gamers.

Why would I take the L? I get it that most people here think devs having to keep game prices artificially low is a good thing, but I disagree.
At this point though, just because the meltdown would be hilarious, I hope the next From Software game, a sequel to Neir, and whatever other games are loved here all end up exclusive to the EGS.

Cool, maybe you and other leftists on this forum can stop erasing all the minorities who don't agree with your worldview when you make statements that the vast majority of minorities would disagree with, like that the Democratic Party turned it's back on minorities, because in truth, leftists are disproportionately white in America.
If you truly cared about what minorities thought, you'd be on the Biden Express and praising Obama. But you don't - you just want to use them as a shield for you ideology.

ReasonUser Banned (5 Days): Trolling over a series of posts
No, I think WWE booking is mostly terrible and I'm going to a local indy show here in Seattle this weekend. The irony is I've actually spent more money on non-WWE wrestling in the past year than a vast majority of the people in this place and places like r/SquaredCircle who continually complain about the WWE and how it's killing wrestling.
I just don't think my personal opinion of the WWE means that it's doomed financially or that appealing to smarks will actually create a competitive wrestling environment. The only thing worse than Vince McMahon booking is the fantasy booking I read on the regular here and other places.
But yes, I will admit it's easy to feel superior to people who stan for Kenny "Let Me Create a Fake Gay Gimmick" Omega.
