..it's not particularly funny as the MS flag has attracted 100x as much controversy as the MD one.

Yes.  The internet should be a safe space.

Those guys marching in Charlottesville weren't on the internet at the time.

FF, like every single other police department.

The Caracas Police Department are FF?

As a whole, sure why not?

Because they are thugs fighting for Maduro?

The general sentiment is pretty good but that's still a stupid writing full of bad examples and inaccuracies. This part made me cringe:

"There is no travel ban on them because of their religion."

There isn't for anybody. It could've been accurate and just as relevant changing "religion" to "national origin" so why not do that?

But it also said "I bet you that after they go home, not a single one will lose their jobs"

One guy present has already been confirmed fired.

This is SO hilariously wrong now that most people present identified have been from out of state and at least one has been fired.

This is a pretty good post I saw on the issue...

To those of you condemning what’s happening in Charlottesville from the safety of other states, don’t forget that a lot of us actually live there or somewhere else in Virginia.

I know some of y’all don’t find it hard to believe, but those Nazis and klansmen legit live in Virginia. This is not a multi-state conglomeration that represents the last dying embers of white supremacy in the United States. They’ve always been here. When I say that I grew up in Klan country. I mean it quite literally. Them motherers ain’t went nowhere. They didn’t die off. They didn’t move. They didn’t “grow out of it.” The only thing now is that they’re slicker about it.

I bet you that after they go home, not a single one will lose their jobs or be turned down for a job even though their actual faces as plastered all over the internet. Because we have to live with these people. They’re the neighbors. They’re the cops. They’re the invisible hands of businesses and institutions all over this state.

Make no mistake. This is not sudden. This is not an anomaly. This is not just because of Trump. These people have always been here, but y’all didn’t listen when the people who lived here all our lives, the ones outside the pretty, tourist attraction side of town, told you.

They actually sound WAY better than most police. I'm reading reports that they basically ignored antifa and only focused on dispersing the Nazis. In some cases they even basically fought alongside antifa.

Pretty hilarious and exposing of hypocrisy to anti-BLM people now making threats against the police which is happening all over right wing sites and making fun of the two who were killed in that helicopter crash.

Yes, it should be obvious, but is it obvious to everyone? Why has there been so much of an issue of calling ISIS radical Islamic terrorists? It has been a silly talking point and the Republicans are the ones who have made much ado about nothing. That has been your straw man.

Uh, because they are Islamic terrorists? As noted they even call themselves the Islamic State.

If you want to refer to white supremacist terrorists as white supremacist terrorists, go ahead. It seems pretty logical to simply to refer to terrorists by their motivation and whatever their ideology is instead of twisting to fit them into categories they can only be extremely loosely linked to, if at all.
..and the KKK call themselves Christians. There motivation may come from their racism, rather than their religion, that would be the only difference. Why does it matter so much what they're called. Yes, I know the I in ISIS is Islam, so it really shouldn't even be an issue, right?

If you want to call the KKK a Christian terrorist group, I honestly wouldn't care. Although it's worth noting that the KKK went bankrupt during the FDR administration and hasn't existed for seven decades, and any group calling itself KKK today is just a basically just a bunch of racist cosplayers. "The KKK" as an actual unified organization doesn't really exist anymore.

That has nothing to do with whether the driver of that car is a Christian terrorist, because there is no evidence he was part of some KKK group as there were many other white nationalist groups present. So referring to him as a "Christian terrorist" is simply not correct. And yet, he's probably not a Muslim either, so even that doesn't weaken the blatantly obvious point that not just Muslims commit violence. So why even bother making this ridiculous line of argument?

The equivalent of what you're doing would be calling a group like Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine or the Janjaweed an Islamic terrorist group, not ISIS.

There is a lot of overlap between religion and politics and the point is that a lot of wars have been waged at least in part because of religion. Wars can be waged for other reasons.

Is there any point you're trying to make that isn't totally blatantly obvious?
68  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Torch-bearing white nationalists march ahead of alt-right rally on: August 13, 2017, 12:00:19 am
Trying to tie acts of violence and terrorism completely unrelated to Christianity (such as this, Dylann Roof's shooting or the OKC bombing) to Christianity and labeling them "Christian terrorism" is completely pointless if the goal is only to be Captain Obvious and shows that people other than Muslims commit violence, since McVeigh, Roof and the driver were not Muslims either.

Not every act of terrorism is religious-based.
69  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Torch-bearing white nationalists march ahead of alt-right rally on: August 12, 2017, 11:56:58 pm
Since Republicans like to talk about "Radical Islamic Terrorism", it seems fair to point out that Muslims are not the only ones who commit violence.

Even the most depraved and ignorant Trumpist knows this. It's a ridiculous strawman.
70  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Torch-bearing white nationalists march ahead of alt-right rally on: August 12, 2017, 11:52:58 pm
This sort of grasping at straws to try to make every single act of violence or terrorism committed by a white guy "Christian terrorism" really doesn't help and distracts from the real horrors. We don't even know the perpetrator's religious beliefs. No one would call Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (whose founder isn't even a Muslim) an Islamic terrorist group even though they have the same goal as Hamas, because their attacks aren't religious motivated. Neither was this guy's, even if he was loosely connected to the KKK.

It's kind of amazing how people also think the Oklahoma City bombing was an act of religious terrorism when McVeigh wasn't religious in any way...I've even heard people call Dylann Roof a Christian terrorist even though he actually attacked a Christian place of worship. It's amazing.

Can we now call the alt right "Radical Christian Terrorists"?
We've heard about "Radical Islamic Terrorists?"
We've heard about atheist Communists and the evil that they have done.

It seems that there are evil people in every "tribe".

Richard Spencer is an atheist, as are many alt-righters, others are into occult and paganism. There is no correlation between being a Christian and being alt-right.
The KKK is Christian. David Duke is part of the KKK and certainly was part of this protest.

Gee, it's almost as if the reason for this rally was completely unrelated to religion or something.
72  Forum Community / Forum Community / Did you know before today that neo-Nazis have been around for centuries? on: August 12, 2017, 11:31:12 pm
No. This was an interesting development to learn as well, seeing as how the Nationalist Socialist German Workers Party was founded in 1920, and those are the original Nazis, with without there can't be "neo-" ones.

I voted FF, although it'd be preferable if he was liberal.

And obviously the greatest living American is Guy Picciotto.
75  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Torch-bearing white nationalists march ahead of alt-right rally on: August 12, 2017, 07:53:02 pm
But yeah, this guy is getting off easy. Although if another two people died that'll probably be enough charges to lock him up for life. I just looked it up. In Virginia you can get up to 40 years for second degree murder.
