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.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

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.

You can't conjure up better fiction if you hit an 8-ball and passed into a coma on your keyboard.
How could we have dared forgotten that all truth comes only from the MSM?

Silly us.


4. Original poster sits back waiting for theRPGsite regulars to realize they already provided all the evidence needed in the thread, which was inevitable when the original troll made the post...

Evidence of what? People have opinions unapproved by SJW garbage? Or that viewing raw footage provides more context than media clips purposefully designed to set off race riots?


Yes. I'm laughing at you.  :o :-*
Not for long. You and the rest of the fence-sitters will learn the hard way you can't dance fast enough to appease the mob.

Fun fact: when communism takes over, there's nowhere to run. My father grew up in a tiny village on a little island totally impoverished and the communists made the time to put boots on their necks...literally. I've spoken to many other survivors of communism and those who came from far flung villages had the same tale as those from Moscow, Hanoi, Belgrade, and Warsaw, the jackboots always find the time to flex their muscle on those who might think they're above the fray and wrongly believe they can just live their lives.

Hillary Clinton being involved in Watergate is an undisputed public record.  How is that idea a conspiracy theory?

3. Que up pages of conspiracy theories (my favorite thus far is how Hillary Clinton was involved in Watergate?)...
How she was involved in Watergate isn't really a conspiracy theory.
I can think of a dozen far more exciting, fun and entertaining Hillary Clinton conspiracy theories.

But even that wouldn't make me alt-right either. :-)

That brief may get some attention during the next few years, should any members of the Clinton administration become the subject of an impeachment inquiry.

Remember that cartoon about the bear and the hunter... The punchline being "you're not really here for the hunting are you?"
The whole thread was worth it just for the bear hunting joke.

Whitewater was real, just deadly boring. Nobody could stay awake.

So, to summarize;


1. Random poster hits up the political forum on theRPGsite and posts inflammatory warning that we are all alt-right propagandists using known techniques to steer conversations to specific perceptions.
2. Que up a list of expected "commie bastard" responses calling out the troll to "provide evidence".
3. Que up pages of conspiracy theories (my favorite thus far is how Hillary Clinton was involved in Watergate?) about bused in agitators, a long defense of Kyle Rittenhouse, videos and speeches about war, and other bedrock alt-right propaganda talking points, memes, and responses. BTW - I love this shit. You can't conjure up better fiction if you hit an 8-ball and passed into a coma on your keyboard.

I just love it when the guy known for championing in character rape for gaming tries to claim the Moral High Ground.


Gives me a grin every time.

Trotting out this bullshit again huh? I don't champion in-character rape. I defend the right of consenting adults to play in a game with whatever subjects they choose. I also champion freedom of speech, so if someone makes a Hentai game, I don't believe it should be censored. Of course you know that. You just hope that repeating the same bullshit will erase the truth.

Second, not taking the "Moral High Ground". Just laughing at the irony of it. Sorry you can't see the comedy in this thread.

And that's EXACTLY how America falls.

The Founding Fathers could have sat back, fat and happy, on their plantations being rich men in a new land. Sure, they had to pay high taxes and have no representation in Parliament, but who wants to fight a revolution when you can just take a knee?
Some of us aren't going to be taking a knee anytime soon. I'd rather go out in a blaze of glory than capitulate to these fucking communists, and I'm not alone...my neighborhood is organizing a militia just in case some BLM fucks decide they want to riot in our streets.

I know you're not optimistic about this whole ordeal, but just remember: 3%

I’ve browsed this thread a couple of times, but haven’t really been paying close attention, but has anyone brought up “muh racial IQ” or stuff like “muh sOcIaL cOhEsIoN” in racially homogeneous countries? Or are we stretching the term “alt-right” to mean “anything vaguely ‘right wing’ (whatever that even means) that I disagree with”?

Cuz don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some willfully uninformed and wildly partisan shit on this forum section, but willfully uninformed and wildly partisan does not equal “alt-right” or we’d have to lump the entire so-called “Left” into it while we’re at it as well.

No no no. I have many conservative friends. I don't disagree with all their values by any stretch. I think of the "alt-right" as this strange group of fanatics who have strange conspiracy theories about how "libtards" are taking over the world. They amuse me as much as the far "regressive-left" hand-wringers who spend all their time in fear of the "facist theocracy take-over" or "the giant white penis monster". I'm not just anti-fascist, I'm anti-fanatic. I think everyone gets an opinion and we should listen to each other. All this "red" vs. "blue" hatred is seriously misplaced IMHO.

You aren't a monster, you are just very confused and need to get laid instead of just your player character.

Alt-Right means anyone to the left of Mao.

As we're a free speech forum, there's been discussion on people's thoughts IQ & race and social cohesion. Personally, I'm always fascinated how the social cohesion seen in "racially" homogeneous countries doesn't extend over the border to the slightly different ethnic group of the same "race". AKA, Chinese and Mongolians are Asian, French and German are Europeans, and being of the same "race" hasn't done jack shit for harmony, so the homogeneous harmony concept drills down further to perhaps shared ethnicity, but probably shared culture.
