an increase in threats against lawmakers

Here's a thought:  a new agency to deal with death threats against people.  That's all they have to do, day in, day out.  No drugs. No white collar crime.  Just track down anyone and everyone sending a death threat to anyone across state lines and prosecute them every single time.

As someone who works in national security circles and has gotten their fair share of threats from the right, I like this.

For all its promise, the anonymity of the internet has allowed real pieces of shiat to threaten people until their heart's content. Take away the benefit of anonymity and you see the cowards for who they are.

Sure would be heartbreaking if any threat against a lawmaker/election worker was a felony, and a mountain of guns got yoinked.

Meh. I get death threats at least once a month. Usually some christian is mad at me for not being christian and thinks I should stop existing.

Sure, take it out on the messenger instead of the idiot who did the deed. Truth is irrelevant to right-wing nuts; It's all about the narrative, reinforced daily by pundits pushing bullshiat during prime time.

Getting real tired of this nation protecting terrorist organizations by not going after them.

Granted, the people charged with enforcing the law are also in those terrorist organizations... and that those institutions are terrorists themselves...

Ya know, maybe we should get on fixing that.

My Trump-supporting dad was surprised when I showed him my Twitter inbox, and all the messages from people in MAGA hats calling me a child groomer.

I think the silliest death threat I ever got was, way back when Shadow of War came out, I'd said "turning Shelob into a sexy lady was a dumb idea," and some people sent me a message saying I should kill myself if I didn't think Shelob could shapeshifter, and that I'm not a real Lord of the Rings fan, and that the decision makes sense from a marketing perspective since gamers are afraid of spiders, lol

I like this idea. I got a death threat mailed to my house in 2019. Turned out it was one of my students who sent it. As I recollect, campus police eventually visited him because he lived in the dorms.*

*After the police came to see him, he no longer lived at the dorms. Or was a student in my class. Or was enrolled at the college. I never heard from him again, and I hope I never do.

I still love the whole "gamers are afraid of spiders," bit of reasoning. Like... God. Can you imagine...? This person was saying that a board of suits reasoned that gamers are such purple manchildren, that they cannot deal with spiders unless they turn into sexy, matronly women, and they're actively agreeing with them?

Like, imagine if they applied that to any other game. Like, Subnautica's devs were just like "actually, these giant fish monsters are too scary. Let's replace them with big boobied women. The water is scary, too... I guess we gotta replace that with women, too. In fact, screw the whole idea of underwater deep-sea exploration. This is now a hentai game."

How about veiled threats? Sure, prosecute clear and over death threats, but shouldn't the whole "nice place you got here, be a shame if anything happened to it" thing be answered with at least a kicked-in door and a "listen here, you motherfarker..."?

anjin-san: This is something to keep in mind whenever you wonder, "why didn't they speak up sooner?"


No. Because this is who they catered to and enabled. This is the Republican Party with the veneer of civility removed from the public discourse. This is the "El Rushbo" listeners of the world who are now off the reservation with out a guiding hand to keep them in check and separate the looney true believers from the financially conservative Christian backed base.

People like Kinzinger don't get to suddenly be given an "out" for why it wasn't said sooner. They should be questioned why they allowed it in the first place. Why they went along for the ride knowing full well this is what the Republican Party represents.

But Shelob and Ungoliant weren't shapeshifters. Did I miss some part of the canon where Tolkien wrote a letter while on LSD about how Sauron and Ungoliant plowed? I mean, if you're hopped up on a fandom to the point of death threats you should probably at least know the lore, right?

Yeah but a few public investigations would curb things somewhat.  Most of the perps are acting with the assumption no one will track/confront them.

Seeing news reports of "user maga4life who thought he was anonymous was raided by the FBI this morning over threats made to X via Y" MIGHT cause others to think "gee maybe I shouldn't send this death threat".

Apparently a lot of people bought this title as a joke or gag gift for friends and it turns out it's actually really good. Fine controls, engaging enough story, varied boss fights that are fun. Turns out, it's actually good as just a game despite really being a gag gift.

No shame to anyone who finds a legal product people will buy that pays bills, especially if it's not enslaving children overseas.

Zerochance: Kizinger just posted a few of the death threats he gets daily on his Twitter feed.

MAGA is a terrorist cult.


When are we going to have the honest conversation that the former president's followers are violent and unhinged? How many death threats and killings done in the name of MAGA do there have to be? We cannot allow them to hide behind "politics." This is aberrational behavior. You never see any "Obama bombers" or "pelosi shooters" but MAGAviolence is ubiquitous.

MattytheMouse: MattytheMouse: Weaver95: Meh. I get death threats at least once a month. Usually some christian is mad at me for not being christian and thinks I should stop existing.

My Trump-supporting dad was surprised when I showed him my Twitter inbox, and all the messages from people in MAGA hats calling me a child groomer.

I think the silliest death threat I ever got was, way back when Shadow of War came out, I'd said "turning Shelob into a sexy lady was a dumb idea," and some people sent me a message saying I should kill myself if I didn't think Shelob could shapeshifter, and that I'm not a real Lord of the Rings fan, and that the decision makes sense from a marketing perspective since gamers are afraid of spiders, lol

I still love the whole "gamers are afraid of spiders," bit of reasoning. Like... God. Can you imagine...? This person was saying that a board of suits reasoned that gamers are such purple manchildren, that they cannot deal with spiders unless they turn into sexy, matronly women, and they're actively agreeing with them?

Like, imagine if they applied that to any other game. Like, Subnautica's devs were just like "actually, these giant fish monsters are too scary. Let's replace them with big boobied women. The water is scary, too... I guess we gotta replace that with women, too. In fact, screw the whole idea of underwater deep-sea exploration. This is now a hentai game."


On one hand, that's ridiculous. On the other hand, this was the version of Subnautica the wOke lEft (TM) denied us! I'm torn.

/Also I'd like a version of the What's This? song from Nightmare Before Christmas where the titular lyric is always preceded by UWU. Editing in a 5/4 measure to make it happen is acceptable.

Let me tell you about Subnautica and 'tHe WoKe LeFt," lol

I worked as a playtester on Subnautica for a while, and when Subnautica: Below Zero came out, we were review bombed for-gasp-having a black lady as a protagonist! Some of the shiat these people posted was ridiculous... Like, one guy said that black British people don't exist, which... Okay. I guess they're gonna shiat bricks when they find out about Idris Elba, lol

They're more afraid of ladies.

Also, imagine inferring that Shelob isn't already sexy as is.

She's got it all: beautiful eyes, eight long, slender legs, an absolute badonk of a thorax. She's a total MILF and I wanna fark that spider.


I was gonna say "careful, you'll summon Matty" but then I scrolled up and realized who posted the comment

Loose lips sink ship; never tell Russia the protection plans for a Trumpski witness.

But we have to protect Supreme Court Justices in their homes with already stepped-up Federal, State, and Local law enforcement because.

Shouldn't you just try Christianing harder?
