Oh nice. We have what, a dozen people ganging up on Kali? Calling her a "fascist" for expressing her point of view?

The irony here is that for all the self-righteous indignation and sanctimonious posturing about free speech and censorship, this circlejerk is roughly the forum equivalent of those asshats screeching at the kid with the Confederate flag at the the Charlottesville Lee statue on Tuesday.

It's disdainful. And what makes it worse is you all know Kali.


That's why I've just stepped-back and read the thread, and not posted anymore.

The hypocrisy and ignorance in this thread is thick enough to cut with a knife.

People being shouted down by those complaining the protestors are shouting down others.



False equivalence.
This is an internet forum and 20000 people are not marching on a few hundred to shut them up. I would suggest that is ever so slightly more intimidating.
An army of people marched on a few to close down their right to speak. That's what happened today and I am surprised to see anyone fail to condemn it - especially the President it seems, who looks like he is finally bowing to the hateful ideology of those that want to riot, shut others up, and burn things to the ground.

And, if she wants to censor views that are different from her own, she's a fascist.

See what I did here?


KKK, White supremacists, BLM, Antifa - all the same...and YES, morally equivalent.
The only difference is that BLM and Antifa are a much bigger problem right now.

Wonder how our Raiders NFL fans would do against them?


Depends. As long as it isn't an open carry state they wont get far throwing pop-corn and hot-dogs at really drunk berserks. Especially once I've told them your 'professionals' play the ball with their tiny ... hands.



*chanting*

MAKE HANDS GREAT AGAIN!

I was on a train in France with a bunch of Irish Fans, had a great time drinking in the dining car. They ended up beating the crap out of two slimy Beligum guys who were perving on some solo American chicks on the train. After that, we drank some more. They were totally great.

You forgot to add a very large group, which is taking over the west: social justice warriors.

I have no problem with SJW's saying what they want to say - however, the second they use intimidation, coercion and violence to shut others down or oppress others, they move into a different realm.

Funny, to use a right like free speech to suppress free speech.

OOOH 4!

20,000 didn't block a handful of snowlfakes. They didn't show up!


Could it be they feared for their lives from 20,000 people that clearly were bent upon violent action. We saw that happen, repeatedly. That, my friend, is suppression of speech in action. Any you celebrate.

I reiterate Pol Pot would be proud.

See. This is why I stepped away and will do so again.

We cannot even have discussions about things because too many of you have an agenda to twist anything and everything you can to fit your individual narratives.

Well, not individual narratives. Most of you have the same agenda and spit the same narratives. That is the product of being exposed to very specific propaganda.

One member even turned on Trump because he tweeted something positive for once and said he was bowing to the other side.

The derp in here is astounding.
