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.

I need to get back to my FLGS when it's open again. I really dropped off after having kids and that's a shame as the owner always remembers me and has given me great discounts over the years just because.

Metal and Classic Rock are good. Punk is bad.

Nah... Metal is the most pretentious stuff about, and classic rock is meh. :)

Methinks the punk doth project too much

All the complains punks have about metal is far more applicable to punk and the punk scene. It reeks of projection and pretentiousness.

Punk is pretentious pseudo-intellectual conformity masquerading as non-conformity

It's really good fun though. Like lot's of fun, totally teckle.

Greetings!

Golly, isn't it so wonderful that we have Biden and Kamala leading the way for America in the Covid era? Just bow down and suck Kamala's ass, and give thanks to the ever-wise and benevolent Democrats.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

To be fair it's got to be better than the last shower of glaikit shite.

That's just one instance of someone calling them patriots. If that doesn't sound like an endorsement to you, then I don't know if you speak English motherfucker.

Not to mention the youtube crackpot links that keep egging on this BS. I don't need to link you to every instance, do I?

Then again, why am I expecting any of you to not be lying idiots.

Damn, you found the most sarcastic poster on the boards calling them "Patriots" after several others insisted on referring to them as "Insurrectionists" in prior posts. You really got me on that one. I guess this means we ALL now supported people storming the Capitol 100% with zero reservations, and agree entirely that it was a brilliant idea cuz ONE guy called them "Patriots" at one point. Like people can't be "Patriots" and do stupid misguided shit at the same time.

A: "Rioting is wrong."
B: "But they didz it too!"

I think AOC said it best: The whole point of protesting is to make people uncomfortable



Right, because people here haven't been justifying the capitol riots by invoking "but they did it first mommy!" I don't know what forum you've been reading. Come back to earth son.

No, they haven't. EVERYONE who's brought up anything approaching a "justification" of the capitol protests has been more nuanced than that, and no one has come out and outright justified it (with the possible exception of Spinachcat, who came out saying he was "proud" of them at one point in the other thread), merely attempted to explain the causes leading up it.

This was SHARK on the other thread:

Quote from: SHARK
*Thousands* of American patriots all singing the National Anthem as more patriots storm the Capital building!

Huge chants of "OUR HOUSE! OUR HOUSE! OUR HOUSE!"

More chanting, "USA! USA! USA!"

Hundreds of Americans pouring inside the doors! Thousands everywhere, surrounding everything!

Fucking LOCK AND LOAD!!! Amazing!
(ref)

Quote from: SHARK
Nancy Polosi's office has been taken. Evidently she left in such haste, she left her computer open. Patriots are reading her Emails right now, and searching her computer.

Capital Police have attempted to use mace, tear gas and batons. Whistles blowing loudly, all to no avail. Tens of thousands of Patriots marching everywhere. American flags waving like great forests. Other scenes show police merely standing by, watching as Patriots march and pour about. Police do not seem eager to be violent in general.

Thundering roars of USA! USA! USA!

More singing of the National Anthem! Thousands singing all in unison!

Entire Capital building looks like it is overwhelmed and thoroughly occupied by Patriots!

So many huge crowds everywhere! Men, women, all chanting!

MAGA!
(ref)

Yeah, I forgot about that post. Still doesn't change the fact that people who were actually discussing the protest, as opposed to just bring up the news of the day while cheering for their side, gave far more nuanced reasons than "but they did it first!", which was the actual point.

Greetings!

Exactly, my friend! I watched several live videos, each covering some of the same scenes, and some with different aspects. The first video I posted in this thread, here, had coverage of the Save America rally, and President Trump's speech. Very interesting, cool, and it was inspiring.

Most of the witnesses and reporters on the scene described hundreds of thousands of American patriots attending--most likely well over a million people attending. It looked amazing and awe inspiring in my view.

There were something like, I don't know, several hundred, maybe a few thousand people that specifically stormed into the Capital building. Out of a million people attending.

I think it is tragic that several people died during the event. I think that political violence is a tragic and terrible--and as I have explained to my friends, regardless of how righteous someone may feel such violence is necessary--it will still be tragic, terrible, and horrifying for everyone involved. Take a look at our own American Revolution and the American Civil War. Look at the British Civil War, the war between Parliament and the King, look at the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, not to mention the civil wars and political struggles in the twilight of the Republic during ancient Rome--and in more modern times as well, the Troubles in Ireland, and the civil war in Ukraine. Terrible atrocities, huge numbers of people slaughtered, imprisoned, tortured, starved, crushed, impoverished and oppressed. Good, bad, and indifferent, young and old, men, women, and children. The blood and fire covered everyone.

Civil War is terrible, and I certainly do not want to see America go into a civil war.

And you're quite right. Patriots can do stupid things too, just like other people. Protesting is good, and a right that we have under our Constitutional Republic. The whole "Mob mentality" thing can--and often does--get swept up and out of control. Anyone that has ever been in a *really large* group, there can definitely be felt a kind of energy, and it can definitely influence people to do things without thinking. Shifting from protesting to *rioting* by some of the patriots attending the events in Washington, DC, was unfortunate.

Meanwhile, as you and others have commented, none of these events and responses are surprising. The Marxist Democrats have applauded and SUPPORTED political violence and "Mostly Peaceful Protests" for months now. Lots of money given to BLM and Antifa by Democrats, politicians, the media, celebrities, all along while being justified and glorified. None of these fucking corrupt Democrat politicians shed a tear or screeched about "Insurrection!" when cities all across America were being burned to the ground and good Americans hunted down and beaten, robbed, assaulted, and killed. FOR MONTHS. There's always nuances, and context. The monstrous hypocrisy of the corrupt, Marxist Democrats is absolutely disgusting. Why was the siege of the Federal Courthouse in Portland allowed to go on--for months--and this riot at the Capital building reacted to and ended within hours? Somehow, the Portland courthouse siege wasn't viewed as an "Insurrection!"--but the unarmed rioting at the Capital buiding in DC is an "Insurrection"? The DC event was not a coup or an insurrection--it was a rally, and then a protest. The Marxist Democrats in this country can continue with their hypocrisy, their censorship, their oppression, their fraud, lies and corruption, and their subversion of our Constitutional Republic--and somehow, patriotic Americans everywhere are just expected to get on their knees and swallow it down?

I don't think that is how it will go down. The DC protest and riot is a symptom of what is to come.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK


There's never been a. British Civil War

Greetings!

I'm sorry. What was that business about Parliament having the King of England executed?

I seem to recall there were armies raised by Parliament that fought against the armies of the King.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

That'll be the English Civil War in which the English Parliament fought against the King. Now this is connected to the War of the Three Kingdoms but was not a British civil war as it took place before the Act of Union in 1707.

Pat hate to sound like a broken record, but again a brick wall is going to constructive than rawma will ever be.  Swallow your pride and just put him on ignore.  This is beyond principle at this point.

To be fair you can't be too hard on Kiero. He avowes to not care for anybody beyond his absolutely immediate family, is a latent anti-vaxxer who believes that governments across the world have a concerted plan to use a virus with no ill effects to take his liberty and states he owes others not the slightest effort to prevent them dying. As a complete mental he needs compassion.

Spare your faux-sincerity act for someone who actually believes you, you smug cunt.

Calm down you gadje I wasn't even talking to you and I can confirm that I was being completely sincere when I called you a mental.

Sorry, why would you think I could give a flying fuck what your opinion on the matter is?
Glad to see we have a totally reciprocal relationship! It makes communicating so much easier when we both know there's absolutely no point to it. Now if everyone here could just be so honest.

The Flu vaccine works 45% of the time.

So yeah Flu vaccine works.

Reducing hospitalisation and death is seen as a good thing by many.

40% when they guess the right strain(s). Even then it doesn't make you immune, it might just shorten your symptoms, in other words a complete waste of time.
Reasonable people disagree.

Nobody on these boards is worth any serious investment of time.

That's really not fair. Pat is using his intimate knowledge of hypocrisy to take people down with the power of hypocrisy. He totally schooled me on calling Keiro iero bad names whilst ignoring Keiros awful name calling of anybody who doesn't go by his meticulously high standards.

Keiro is actually somebody I'm worried about. High earning, you know he pays the top rate of tax, and physically healthy he's neglected his mental health and gone into a weird psychosis where all the governments are out to get him. He's also totally not an anti-vaxxer but says the flu vaccine doesn't work. He's a total mental.
