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.

Because leftists think based on how they want things to be rather than how they really are.

And regarding abortion- isn't it unjust that the father has no say? If he's ready and willing to raise the child too bad, but if she has the child he is stuck with child support? It's darkly amusing to hear the very people who insist "gender is a social construct" suddenly point out that women get pregnant, not men.

The feminists hitched their wagon to the ideology of deconstructing gender roles. Most of them seem to have not realized that eventually they'd get around to deconstructing the idea of sex itself.
Thus the whole TERF kerfuffle.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Feminism was just something meant to make people miserable and to destroy society. It's just that now their usefulness has come to an end- and I do not feel sorry for any of them, young or old.

Why would it matter whether people stopped liking Biden if all elections are stolen?

Do any but a tiny minority (20% or less) of Democrats actually like Biden?  The rest just voted "Not Trump" under the cult-like chant of "Vote Blue, No Matter Who", which in itself, is admission that they have no candidates worth supporting on their own merits.  And any polls claiming support are full of people just wanting the polls to say so, and voting accordingly.

The lack of down ballot votes is a big indicator of this.  Voters didn't give a shit about the DemonKKKrats.  They just were tired of 5 years of "orange man bad!"

  So, the main reason the whole democracy and freedom thing didnt kick off in afghanistan or elsewhere in the past.... you have to be willing to DIE to get it, and you have to be willing to DIE to keep it.  Not kill, but to die.   MOST people (99.9 percent worldwide maybe) are not willing to die to have freedom.  They are not even willing to risk injury.   The afghans we backed couldnt do jumping jacks, were largely drug addicts, and like banging little kids.   What does it say about our "leaders" that is the sort of trash they decide to back.   Nevermind the fact these same dudes COMPLETELY unwilling to fight pushed their way to the front of the lines to escape via plane letting the women and kids fend for themselves. 

    Why the fuck, would anyone who gives it 5 minutes of thought, want a bunch of people here who are here because they were COMPLETELY UNWILLING to fight or risk themselves to have a way of life that we think they must value (they are fleeing to here).   Not the biggest fan of spineless cowards, and it seems we are moving in the direction of importing them now.

You're not saying anything new - just slightly more vulgarly.

Quote
The increasing number of immigrants in the first half of the nineteenth century created new tensions. Catholic immigrants drew public hostility because of their poverty;
the diseases they brought with them after the perilous ocean voyage; the slum housing they were forced to live in; and the dramatic rise in crime rates, alcoholism, and the poverty rolls that occurred after their arrival. Many American-born Protestants, equating their English heritage with “true” Americanism, despised the desperately poor Irish and feared the Germans, who spoke a strange new language. The antialiens were nativists, convinced that opposition to the growing minority of Catholic immigrants was necessary to protect their America.

Quote
Founded in Iowa in 1887, the APA had attracted a membership of 500,000 by 1895. While its leaders focused on fears of Irish Catholic control of bigcity political machines and educational institutions, the organization’s members focused on assaulting the “alien” ways of the “new immigrants.” They believed these people were the inferior “refuse of Europe” and could never be
assimilated into U.S. culture.

Source

America has never become weaker by accepting immigrants, but the same arguments get made every time a new immigrant group gets tossed in the mix.  Whether it's the Irish, or the Chinese, the Mexicans, or the Afghans, whatever the current group is is just 'too different' but it turns out people actually WANT to be Americans.

  I am not talking about immigrants.  I am talking about people who were abject cowards, drug addicts, and kid fuckers who pushed women and kids out of the way to save their own necks.   These people are not immigrating.  If they wanted to feel American, they could have fucking started by planting their feet and fucking fighting for it.

You have a specific individual in mind?  Someone you know is a kid-fucker? 

Because I saw people so desperate to live the American dream that they clung to the wings of an airplane as it took to the air - who chose near certain death for a CHANCE to make a better life.

  That is cultural feature of the afghanis we were were training and helping.  An army captain got a dishonorable discharge for beating the shit out of a northern alliance officer for raping a kid.  it was RAMPANT.  It is certain death to cling to to a plane wing.  They were too stupid to know this, and preferred dying to what the taliban would do to them.  You know what they could have done to prevent the Taliban from doing anything to them?  Fucking act like goddamn men and fight.  If they were coming here after bloody battles and now coming to an end where they will be routed that is one thing.  But to just break and run first thing?  Desperate or not, I no not need kid fucking cowards around.

  And to be honest, even if we managed to weed out all the kid fuckers, the rest are cowards and mass majority drug abusers (the folks we tried to train to fight) so I still have Z E R O use for them.

I'm 20 pages into an interesting academic book on Partisanship. 

The book is available for download to PDF. 

It describes three ways of seeing your association with political party.  Most of the posters on this site appear to subscribe to the partisan-identity version - essentially you have a tribe that is an important part of your political identify - actions/political victories by the other party threaten your identity.  People with this view ascribe specific qualities to members of each political faction (ie, uneducated, pedophile, etc).  Alternatively, some people primarily conceive of political parties as coalitions of factions - while they may ascribe particular characteristics to members of a faction, it doesn't follow that all members of that political faction share that characteristic.  Ie, recognizing that some Republicans are anti-abortion and some are White-Supremacists, it allows for someone to be a Republican without ALSO being a racist.  The third method is focused primarily on policy goals - ie, someone that values SECURITY on the world stage might vote Republican.  In that case, the policy goal may associate with a party, but by focusing on the policy goal there is less focus on the individual personality traits that we associate with those voters.  Focusing on policy differences (rather than inherent deficiencies in morality) might be a way to continue to recognize the significant differences between the parties without destroying the social fabric that unites us as a society. 

But devolving into a Civil War could be fun, instead.

   Stereotypes of Democrats   Stereotypes of Republicans
Most frequent response   Liberal (19.6%)   Conservative (14%)
2nd   Open-minded (4.2%)   Rich (7.6%)
...

This study is obviously flawed because cock-sucking commie baby-killing satanic pedophiles doesn't even appear in the top ten for democrats.
