This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Didn't hear anything today on right-wing orders...um, radio. I could listen to Mark Levin, but I'm tired, and have a lot of shit to do tomorrow. Including gaming :D

Quote from: S'mon;229242
Leftist assassins like the Black Panthers have killed a lot of people, but I agree that in the USA you don't generally see leftist demagogues with the breadth of Coulter's platform.  They're usually confined to racial or political minority groups.


Really?  Like who?  Anything more recent state side?  I'd been under the impression that Van Gough was killed by Muslim extremists, by the way.

Those guys are a bit far from the political left, last I checked.

Or are you one of those insane fuckfaces that think the left is in league with radical Islam to destroy democracy while summoning Cthullu or something?

It's a tragedy that innocent people were killed by some fucked-up loser.

As for the rest, I expected to see Morrow saying, "well, they were liberals, they had it comin'!" but he tactfully avoided the actual topic of the thread, so there you go.

So, apart from my disappointment,

The guy wasn't left wing or right wing. He was wingNUT or possibly had a screw loose.

By-the-way, LOVED the fact that members of that congregation tackled him after the initial first seconds of shock.

Did I say Van Gogh?  Oops, I meant Pim Fortuyn.  Van Gogh was killed by an Islamist assassin, Fortuyn by a Leftist assassin.  The Islamists and stormtrooper Leftists in Europe are currently on the same side.   I believe that's true to some extent in the US too, but maybe not so consistently so, because most of the US Left is a lot less anti-Semitic than in Europe.  So eg the SPLC designates Nation of Islam as a hate group on their website, albeit somewhat apologetically.

As to "the left is in league with radical Islam to destroy democracy summoning Cthullu" - parts of the European Left are certainly in league with radical Islam.  The UK political party Respect was formed to combine the organisational skills of the Socialist Workers Party (revolutionary Marxists) with the street power of the Islamists.  It seems to have disintegrated now though due to the obnoxious nature of its leader, ex Labour MP George Galloway, whose personal beliefs seem more Ba'athist (secular fascist) than Marxist or Islamist.  In some countries of continental Europe (Holland, Denmark, Walloon Belgium) the alliance is a lot more 'mainstream'.

Most of the American Left (ie the Democratic party) or British Left (the Labour party) certainly are not in league with the Islamists, any more than George Bush and his Republicans are.  It happens that my own local Labour MP Sadiq Khan is pro-Islamist and good friends with an Al Qaeda website guy accused of heading an AQ network in the US, but that's unusual.  Khan himself is Muslim but not an Islamist, his own political roots are revolutionary Marxist.  Most Muslim Labour MPs though are from an older generation and not pro-Islamist, indeed one in Glasgow (Scotland) had to resign due to the amount of death threats he was getting after helping get some Muslim thugs who'd murdered a boy in Glasgow (a race-hate murder) extradited from Pakistan, as I recall.

So what exactly has Michelle Malkin said that's comparable to saying that the victims of 9/11 deserved their fate because they were "little Eichmanns"?  I'm sure you have plenty of examples in mind so please be specific.


I don't normally read or listen to these people, but certainly my impression of Malkin is that while she's certainly anti-Leftist, she doesn't spew venom the way Coulter does.

How much time do you spend listening to right-wing commentators or do you simply trust the characterizations provided to you by the likes of FAIR and MoveOn.org?  Can you give me some specific examples of the sort of hatred you are talking about?


"I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East and sending liberals to Guantanamo." -Ann Coulter, her column, December 21, 2005

"They're [Democrats] always accusing us of repressing their speech. I say let's do it. Let's repress them. Frankly, I'm not a big fan of the First Amendment." -Ann Coulter, U of Florida Speech, Oct 20, 2005

(on muslims) "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity." -Ann Coulter, Her column, September 12, 2001

"So for those of you who haven't read any of my five best-selling books: Liberals are driven by Satan and lie constantly." -Ann Coulter, June 6, 2006, column

""To fight only the al-Qaeda scum is to miss the terrorist network operating within our own borders... Who are these traitors? Every rotten radical left-winger in this country, that's who."" -Michael Savage, Savage Nation, 2003

"I'll tell you who should be tortured and killed at Guantanamo: every filthy Democrat in the U.S. Congress."

This is why I lurve the Internet. It allows small penised morally retarded sociopaths like RockViper and Kyle Aaron to use a tragic incident to push their petty agendas of beating up on John Morrow since he doesn't share their views. Way to go fucktards! Make sure you both laugh heartily at those zingers posted while masturbating your egos!

I am sorry you are too stupid to understand things for yourself, and have to be spoon fed the explanations given by the neoconservative talk show hosts.

I am sorry


Yes RockViper, you are sorry. Because if you weren't so myopic in your pursuit of your own agenda you might have realised that I live in Knoxville, TN. It thus might have occurred to your sorry blind ass that you don't need to be "spoon fed the explanations given by the neoconservative talk show hosts" when you can travel a short distance and walk into the church where the shooting happened and see the damage to the pews from the shotgun pellets themselves or simply talk to the victims who are still alive and come to your own conclusions.

I'm wondering if it is even possible for you to pull your head out of your ass on this subject, because it looks like you are really channelling Patricia Pulling here in your pursuit of an agenda. Good luck with that!

It sucks those people got shot and I feel for their families, and the only agenda I am pushing is that these talk show hosts (pundits/whatever) need to take a look at their handiwork, spewing hate, disharmony and distrust only leads to violence. I am sure that if the shooting had taken place at a reproductive health clinic or peace rally they would be rather pleased with the results.

Apparently this church just was not christian/conservative enough for this guy.

Yes...but the guy going off like that has nothing to do with radio show hosts.

He's just a nut.

Well, I did say it was a tragedy. Only I, Pundit and yourself expressed any regret or remorse at the event. The rest just jumped in with their politics. Let he who is without sin, and all that.

That said, what else are we to do? Must we wring our hands in agonised silence over every tragic death in the world? Perhaps we can all post such stories all day, to make sure we cover all the senseless suffering in the world? Our days would be busy indeed.

That does not mean we should be callously indifferent to such things; but it does mean that you cannot expect what you consider to be an appropriate response each and every time. When someone close to me was seriously injured and then later died in a violent incident, I did not expect to see it discussed on Tangency, not with compassion nor with politics. We're limited in our compassion and understanding. It's the monkeysphere, baby.

My first thought wehen hearing the news was : I hope the folks that are part of my company are okay. Each week I talk to people that live in that area that work for the same group that I do.
  Just hoped they were alright.
