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.

Hey again!  Updating with a quick message that there's a few new PDFs since I posted this thread.  I rewrote the Ninja, wrote a short adventure about a psychic tree, and made a divine not-quite-caster class called the Invoker, all for Pathfinder 1e.

Just in case anyone didn't see this initially :P

I don't believe that mainstream media is full of shit because alternative media youtube channels told me that the MSM lies. I watch alternative media youtube channels because I figured out the MSM lies before I started watching them.

This.

Keep in mind that the Alt Media is under far stricter scrutiny, and provides far more sources (none of which are circular) than the MSM.

I am so sicken and disgusted with the ballots.  They are fucking cheating.

Yup.  As I told a guy on Discord, "It just pisses me off that they're being so goddamn blatant about the cheat.  They don't care that we're catching them in the act, because they're so powerful."

^ This guy gets it.

I wish I had more to add, but sometimes, people just take the words right out of your mouth.

Macheus, I've removed your image. Making light of the Holocaust is not something I approve of.

Alright, fair enough.  Apologies.

Not sure how fond anyone here is of Tim Pool - I personally think he's about even on his hit/miss record - but I found this video today and I had so much catharsis.

"Mail in Voting BACKFIRES, Democrats Jump Ship In Panic As Mail Votes Get REJECTED In Large Numbers"

Also lol FuckYouTube put in a "Here's some context that'll frame the narrative the way we want it c:" marker above the title.

I just wanna say that I love your sig.

I believe it's a narrative / script thing.  For a couple of generations the educated populace has been trained to think of all totalitarianism as a danger from the political right.  Yes the "Alt-Right" as a movement was intentionally cast in the boogy-man role - but also they didn't do themselves any favors and some of them seemed to volunteer for the position.  If they had removed their own bad actors they possibly could have weathered the storm.  That was probably impossible though, as the coiner of the term and owner of the central website with the same name, ie: "Alt-Right", was Richard Spencer, a completely scumbag.

There is a phenomenon wherein people learn to associate negative attention with a positive reward. It is after all ATTENTION of a sort, and comes with a potent biological and chemical reaction.  There is also a sense of power from manipulating people's reactions.  I think this is the close cousin of people who have humiliation fetishes. Spencer strikes me as this kind of person.  He has the sociopath's love of manipulation and enjoys negative reactions in others.

(emphasis mine)

All this seems pretty likely.  I was honestly under the impression that Spencer was a plant from the left, but this looks equally, perhaps more, likely.

This thread was quite a ride.



On subject, it's weird to me how everyone on the far left (and some of the closer fringes) are SO TERRIFIED of this bogeyman.  I know that propaganda requires a level of unthinking acceptance, but it's jarring that there's no questioning of the a-tho-reh-teh.  Maybe it's just that fear of being ostracized that so many people have?

Anyone have some theories or evidence as to why people huddle and cower together on the left so easily over this shadow on the wall of Plato's cave?

So anyway, the article, despite clearly being written by a leftie from the first few paragraphs...is actually very even-keeled.  I'm not familiar with The Penthouse, but this one makes some very good points.

Perhaps this will help some people who manage to see this to realize, "OH HEY WE FUCKED UP"

EDIT: Wow I'm dumb, I got to the bottom of page 1 and didn't realize there were more posts.

I'd like to second the "Dark Theme s'il vous plaĆ®t" call.  If it's too much work for too little payoff, that's fine.

Interesting little fact.  In New York city it is the mayor that appoints the police commissioner.  That should explain why the police don't end the riots right there.  The police work for the benefit of the mayor and his friends.

That's arguably still better than the mayor being the police commissioner.  (cough)Portland(cough)Oregon(cough)
