...do something about it again, you mean.  We weren't as hard as we should have been the first few times it reared its head, but I sense this time will be different. They're getting cocky again, and while it's going to be a dangerous time once more, they're getting so carried away that it's the equivalent of launching a war on multiple fronts without enough absolute or even referent power to sustain any of them.  They have "technicalities" in a world sick of lawyers.  Keep fighting and we'll end this shiat for at least a hundred years this time around.

Maybe we should start holding the terror-whoring propagandists like Cucker Tarlson to account. They can't be totally untouchable just because they're obscenely wealthy, right?

No seriously, stop laughing.

And yet, if you say that to a black person, they'll look at you like you grew a third eye.  For a large percentage of them, it's ALWAYS been that way.  "Do something about it again, you mean"  Again?!?  It never went away.

I gotta solve this problem too?   Burkas for everybody.  When you go out.  Head to toe cover.  Gotta a voice thingy (patent pending) that turns your voice into a robot.  Everyone drives a Scion iQ cause I'm not trading up.

There.  You can't be hunted if you can't be separated from the herd.

Alphax: Easier said than done... but it needs to be done.


It would be a lot easier if people stopped idealizing the past so much.

I'm hearing it all the time from older folks I know.  One is 75 and keeps saying he's glad he lived during the "best" years this country ever had.  One is in his 60's and he's one of these "I wish I had been born a century ago" types.

And yes, they are both cis gender white Xian males (although they would be offended in how I put it).  Why do you ask?

That's fine and all, but I'm not voting.  I'd rather have white supremacists gain office than vote for an impure candidate.  You see, as an upper-middle class young white man, nothing will really change in my life if the fascists gain power.  Therefore, I'm not going to vote for an impure candidate like Biden or Hillary.  Even if Roe is overturned, it won't impact my life at all.

Fark them, I want mine.  Either $2,000 checks or student loans, but I want mine.

I believe we are doing something about White Nationalism. The 2024 mid-terms will ensure White Nationalists take control of all branches of government.

A lot of it seemed to pick back up, oh, about 6 years ago, I'd say.

If I ever felt hunted and constantly under attack, I'd probably get the fark out of wherever I was or at least stand violently opposed.

The first thing that needs to be done is to cut people like Cucker Tarlson off at the knees.
He needs to be afraid to leave his house. The same goes for Nazi Barbie.

They've already established CRT == bad, so it'll be more like: "people are saying that blacks need to have CRT in schools, and when we said 'hey, schools should be race-free and equal for everyone' they got mad.  If they're allowed to have CRT in school then it's only logical that GRT be taught as well to keep a level playing field for everyone."

As I typed it out I was being facetious, but by the time I finished it sounded way too plausible to hear on Fox.

White supremacy will only be curbed (not eliminated) under the barrel of a gun - figuratively or literally. And unless the left at large realizes this, these killings will continue to happen.

A part of CRT is to contextualize what's happening today with the consequences of history. There are those who are desperate to keep their false nostalgia than be told the truth.

Did you read the same post I wrote? Because I said nothing of what you took away from it.

1) Nobody said we were socialist or communist. What was said was that the ideology of the post I was responding to was why it could never work here: We are much too divided in far too many classifications to ever agree to a universal standard for all.

2) Nobody said the socialist or communist movements were causing this. I'm not even sure what you mean by "this," but I assume you mean violence against minorities.

Learn to read - or better yet - learn to understand, sir. It'll help you go farther in life.

All libs and democrats need to be prepared for this shiat to be on the rise.

Have you seen Canada?  Not perfect, but we're doing pretty well with a mix of people, many of whom are first gen immigrants.

It's always amusing when people cut off the full posts being responded to in order to make the appearance of threadshiatting.

I was responding to a post IN this thread. Maybe this question would be better posed to the OP instead of a comment regarding that espoused ideology?

Summer of '67-'68 seems like a far more transformative era than "for one summer, city governments briefly - after killing scores of unarmed people and maiming enough journalists to fill 24-hour blocks for weeks - pretended to care about police brutality."

// you know, right before "defund the police" became the scariest 3 words to white people since "equal rights now"

No, I did not.

And I said,

"This is why socialism itself (or a strong welfare state) is destined to fail every time in a non-culturally homogenous country.

If you got any of the ideas you're posting from that thread, you're either willfully ignorant or just plan stupid.

The Soviet Union was a culturally homogenous country with a socialist state, and it failed hard.

Your argument is invalid.
