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.

Well said, OP. I found your argument compelling. The motherland is ready to receive you on Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit.

Now go, my child, and fix society!

Be warned, the "alt-right" is in this thread right now.

Oh, we already know.

Greetings!

I don't have some "imaginary" vision of America. I know it has existed, and remains to this day. However, America is under attack and being undermined by people that hate America, by Marxists and Globalists. I don't think we as Americans should kneel to them. I don't think Americans should appease the traitors in our midst, those that are out in the streets killing innocent people, attacking, burning and looting. Americans everywhere need to stand against the Marxists seeking to overthrow our nation.

Semper Fidelis,

"But the left..."

No. That is not the topic. Focus.

Propaganda, according to Wikipedia, is communication that is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, which may not be objective and may be presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented.

That's terrifying. We must be ever vigilant against cartoon frog posters. This is serious business.

I mean, cartoon frog posters are harmless but you're the last kind of person who has room to condemn anyone for being a political extremist.

Which is why I wasn't condemning anyone for extremism but rather mocking a 1950's Red Scare style public service announcement.

The fucking Leftists love to sob and shriek about the "Alt-Right"--while they work night and day eating away at the foundations of our nation like filthy, diseased rats, ushering in Marxist brainwashing and tyranny.

True Americans need to stand against these Marxist traitors, and arm up against them. Marxist terrorists, like their inspiration of the Communist Red Guards, need to be stopped cold. With Antifa being known as a Domestic Terrorist organization, the Federal strike teams should be going after them relentlessly, and hunting them down like the rats they are. Every city, every town, where they seek to hide and whisper together, round them all up and bring justice against every one of them. I imagine AG Barr is preparing the groundwork to go after them hard very soon!

Semper Fidelis,

There's conservative propaganda. I've seen issues and quotes get exaggerated for effect by the "right". We saw lots of grotesque propaganda leading up to both Iraq Wars, and most of it was from the Neo-Cons who ran the GOP back then.

But the leftist and MSM nonsense of today has won the Propaganda Olympics. Goebbels is so proud! The entire BLM narrative is bizarre. Not a single Democrat in last week's Congressional hearing would condemn the "peaceful protestors" for their crimes, even refusing to condemn the murder of David Dorn, a retired black police officer.

Being told there's no violence, just peaceful protest is truly insane in an age where the raw footage is only a click away, but the MSM and the DNC believe their base will believe the lies. I'm not sure about that. The significant uptick in viewers on black conservative YouTube channels tells me "blexit" might be stronger than pollsters believe. There's plenty of comments on those YT channels by black ex-Democrats making it clear BLM doesn't represent them and they refuse to submit to the victimhood narrative, nor do they want to be associated with the looters and rioters.

And then there's the raw "George Kirby" / "Fentanyl Floyd" footage just released...

Past tense, because getting an education is "acting white".


"Acting white"...that gives me flashbacks to teaching. You don't see that shit with early elementary age black kids. Like every child their age, they're excited sponges for learning and terrific as students.

But after a decade in the school system? Yeah, "acting white" is a regular fight for teachers. And its pretty much a futile one. By high school, even the best teachers only reach kids who have chosen to be reached. And those kids almost always have either intact families or a forceful adult (often grandma) who slaps down the "acting white" nonsense.

That was funny!! Thank you!

It's especially funny as I love cats because of their murderous and "toxic" personalities. Cats have a laundry list of traits these freaks claim to they want to erase from men. Cats sit around, lick their balls and then look at you with "get your ass to the kitchen and get me some meat." They're furry gangstas.

I love Trump, but his Justice Dept hasn't accomplished much. I don't expect much from Barr. My girlfriend thinks Barr wants to do a good job, but he's drowning in swamp creatures inside the perpetual bureaucracy. But to me a truly sharp AG would find ways around the sewage rats.

When we [enlightened progressives] do it it's "raising awareness" and "community activism", when you [ignorant bigots] do it it's "spreading disinformation", "creating division", and "undermining our Democracy".  

That's because we've been taught (and believe), that Progressivism is "on the right side of history", and the more we advocate for Progressive/Liberal causes and ideals, the more morally superior we become. "It's called being a good person".

That's precisely the point of the definition. This way it makes it easier for the useful idiots to keep the shriek-factor rolling.

Using the terms "propaganda" as well as "brainwashing" are ways to avoid actual debate with the opposing side. It's a pointless dodge.

Debate? The time for debate is long done.

The house of America is on fire because leftists are out of control. We either squelch the fire and punish the arsonists, or we lose the country to the terror of your Marxist "utopia".

Yeah, I'm done trying to be rational with leftists. I will no longer entertain their ideas or "arguments" as anything but pure propaganda meant to force us into an Orwellian dystopia. Whatever a leftist says about anything is either parroted MSM bullshit, or incoherent babble.

I am 100% serious about this...they are fucking immoral cockroaches as far as I'm concerned.

Point of fact folks, B-rad hasn't been rational for quite some time, but let the bitch act like now is the tipping point so his gaping twat can breathe a little easier.
