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.

Greetings!

On the Dividing Line program, Dr. James White discusses current political trends and developments, the critical importance of world view, and the implications of the coming of Socialism to America, and the threat to our Republic.

Semper Fidelis,

Looks like there was some confusion about the officer dying as opposed to being on life support.  Looks like he finally died.

Unless the USCP website is the left wing media.
That's a remarkably useless press release. What does "injured while physically engaging with protesters" mean? It seems to be explicitly trying to avoid saying he was injured by protesters. Did he accidentally fall, have a heart attack while beating someone to death, get shot by another cop, or something like that? Any of those options could fit that mealy-mouthed inconclusive verbiage. They went out of their way to not say anything useful.

You know, for a coup, that was one of the least-armed coups I've ever seen.

Usually it involves lots of guns, and the military.

But hey, welcome to 2021, where dissent is no longer patriotic again.

I generally keep my political opinions to myself on social media. I use it to keep in contact with family and friends in other states, and to be connected with local gaming groups.

And mostly because, as we've seen here, political arguments online go nowhere fast and only generate indignant reactions.

The juice isn't worth the squeeze.

Seconded

Though it is frightening to see at least in 2021 how easily people will ignore who their favored organizations and other similar thinking people see riots and attacks on other who they disagree with on every level yet refuse to call it violence because they are leftist and their narratives are being pushed. When the right or someone else they disagree does it they are terrorist. So as if the they think the cause is just in this cause firm believers in BLM and Thugtifa it;s ok to riot, harass etc. Somehow thinking those on the right won't engage in similar tactics.

In any case imo both sides have lost the moral high ground and the USA in general. Both sides are willing to do whatever it takes. Neither seems to want to talk to the other. Worse the ideological side which is supposed to be more tolerant such as the left has become like the right if not even worse. That is some major mental gymnastics to say rioting and looting and harassment are fine when it's for causes the Left believes. I still can't stand their fake innocence as I told them anyone actually paying attention would see that the USA was ready to explode. Or to put it another way "it's ok for me to riot and behave badly because subjectively the cause I believe in is righteous you not allowed to do the same because you don't think like me".

Greetings!

Indeed, my friend! The video commentary is spot on and excellent. Our Republic has been subverted. We will have freedom and liberty crushed and Marxist-Globalist oppression rammed down our throats.

Exactly as is happening here and with so many of Trump's supporters. The willingness to condone and cheer on what happened shows the same lack of integrity that peopole at TBP show.

If the only principled value that separates this forum from the big purple is this modified version of 'free speech' (so long as Pundit allows  it, right?), then this forum is almost as morally bankrupt.
