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.

No Woking Areas
It's not really 'rejecting', but when the national public network manages to deliver this kind of satire, it's gotta sting at least a little for the wokies.  :o
And it helps that Woke sounds like the Elmer Fudd version of Rook (which in Dutch means 'Smoke').



I've never heard so many woke buzzwords together outside of TBP or similar environments.  ;D
I just would have changed 'Attacked' by 'Triggered' in the subtitles.

For every idiot who denounces Ayn Rand as "intellectualism" there is an excellent DM who creates a "Bioshock" adventure.

Didn't France import as many North African Muslims as they could, then have issues as the migrants refused to assimilate? Or am I mistaken?

After WW2 France had a need of manpower to rebuild their country and later to grow economically during the '60s.

Thats capitalism, not wokism.

I was thinking more of just a few years ago, with mainstream media declaring "There is no rape problem, there are no No-Go Zones or grooming gangs."

Yeah. So glad I got to see Paris last decade. And Notre Dame.

From what I've read about Paris from French literature of XIX and early XX centuries immigrants does not seem to change much about this city.
"Never compromise. Not even in the face of Armageddon.”

"And I will strike down upon thee
With great vengeance and furious anger"
