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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Which ones?
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.

Dude, Pundit does not allow blind links.  And most of us won't click on one, anyway...

It's Youtube, the link itself is harmless. But yes, a description would be nice, and is required on this site. Even looking at the first couple minutes, I'm missing context. It's some guy reacting to Jimmy Dore reacting to Bill Gates. Gates is saying they didn't know the death rates of covid-19 were low and concentrated among the elderly at the time, Dore is saying he knew why didn't Gates, and the guy who's nesting the two videos is agreeing. I'm not sure why he's watching a video of someone watching a video of Gates, instead of just watching the Gates video himself. Maybe he's surprised that Dore is pointing it out? But Dore generally is a contrarian leftist, so this doesn't seem unusual for him. Is there some history I'm missing?

Which of course is why the rule is in place. Context helps.

I agree it's time to end all lockdowns and mask mandates. Those who will be vaxxed and boosted have been, those who haven't won't.

Covid,  in America, is killing far more Republican voters than democrats. In some areas the ratio is 8-1. While I feel sad for the Democrat i'm very happy to see 8 morons removed from the Gene and voter pools. I'm just hoping covid keeps on shifting the ratios of live voters enough to prevent a disaster in November.



Fuck the fascist right and the fascist left.

These are awesome! Best case of confirmation bias I have ever seen! I especially love the youtube video with Neil deGrasse Tyson (the most self important smartest man in the room where ever he goes) on epidemiology! Kudos!

So, being a Bill Maher democrat means that you left your critical thinking behind in your blind hatred of Republicans?

Well, after hearing then talk about killing all the  ''dems, libtards, femnazis, homos,  BLM terrorists'' etc for decades I decided if one side has to wipe out the other in America I'd rather bulldoze the right into mass graves than be bulldozed into mas graves along with everyone i care about by them. Go figure...

His butt.

More seriously, his links do not in any way substantiate an 8-1 ratio of deaths. Indeed, as there is a meaningful racial divide in Covid deaths, one would have to argue minorities are suddenly voting more Republican than Democrat.

Covid does not care what your political beliefs are. It's a pretty equal opportunity killer.
