This was different in that it was an outright fraudulent thing. You can tell that they’re getting into hysterics because now you’re getting into my actual body, which is definitely crossing a level, definitely crossing a line.

I also think it’s encouraging because this is my sixth day in Congress and they’re out of all their artillery. The nude is supposed to be like the bazooka. You know, like, “We’re going to take her down.” Dude, you’re all out of bullets, you’re all out of bombs, you’re all out of all this stuff. What have you got left? I’m six days into the term, and you already used all your ammo. So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm triggered!

The "take away" of course isn't "WOW, I guess maybe white privilege isn't as much a thing as I unsafely assumed" -- instead it's "my research team misinformed me".

Every chance to learn and grow is overlooked so people can continue to claim to be the victim. Pathetic.

I think white privilege is real. I also think it's exaggerated as an issue and used by too many as an excuse to not take responsibility for their own lives.

How reasonable.

It's not white privilege. It is social privilege. Go to rural Appalachia and tell me about white privilege.

++ Every example of "white privilege" either does not exist or it is some complaint about the majority being the majority.

If you have to lie to defend your truth then it was never true and that seems to be all that feminists and NPCs can do with white privilege.

No, but there is no racial privilege... aside from those who benefit from affirmative action.

It would, necessarily, be on a voluntary basis.

Wasn't the OK hand gesture being a white surpremacist sign a joke campaign from some political board on an imageboard? Looks like the navy ate it up not just hook, line and sinker but devoured the whole fishing pole while they were at it.

A joke that makes people laugh. Imagine that.

Also, the word navy in the URL has nothing to do with the events or people written about in the article.

My bad, I was under the impression coast guard was a part of the navy... :oops:
I've taken the opportunity to skim through the article, the middle paragraph(s) show(s) I'm significantly out of the loop:
Quote:
The problem was that some in far-right and white nationalist circles earnestly adopted it.

Noting the migration from online stunt to sincere hate symbol, Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism, weighed in, saying that his organization was updating its understanding of the gesture while cautioning that it’s “not a reliable signifier and no one should assume anything about the use of such a gesture unless there are other unmistakable white supremacist signifiers in that context as well.”

How anybody could say, with a straight face, that the okhandemoji is a white surpremacist symbol and that a small number of legitimate white surpremacists (which is definitely not bound to be like 5 people in total because they're such a significant group and a major threat to begin with... :roll:) have adopted it for their evul dogwhistling, inviting others to their next meeting in a creepy castle atop an ominous-looking mountain is beyond me.

Even if they were part of the Navy, that wouldn't be all of the Navy (square is rectangle, rectangle is not a square). That said, the Coast Guard can be transferred under the Navy (WWs I & II for example).

As for the other part, it would seem the originators of the joke achieved their objective. Simultaneously demonstrating the deficiencies of those who are triggered by it, and those who reward their reaction. Service members teasing and mocking the infirm is akin to "locker room" behavior, and shouldn't be done publicly or filmed. The latter part becoming increasingly difficult to avoid.

Is this still the special snowflakes thread?

Billionaire Howard Schultz is very upset you’re calling him a billionaire

Quote:
In an interview with CNBC last week, the former Starbucks CEO appeared to take personal offense to being described as a “billionaire.” He said that people should use the softer “people of wealth” or “people of means” to describe his class, which accounts for just 1 percent of the world’s population but controls more than half of its money.

Apparently you didn't get the memo that it's a violation of people's human rights to offend them, and everybody is equal and entitled to whatever safe space they define for their concept of their identity. Or are you some kind of right-wing bitch-ass human rights violator?

I wanted to see what percent of the Star Wars franchise's value was destroyed by politics. Because as I've stated before, I'm getting mighty sick and tired of politics being mixed in with my fun. Thus my hope is to attach a price tag to "being woke" and ruining everybody's movie-going fun with SJW politics so that the morons in Hollywood might get a clue before they go out of business.


what a bullshit dumpster fire of an article.
