I just think you're engaging in some deeply culture-chauvinist thinking here for someone from "the scene", where culture isn't supposed to mean anything. Wouldn't an Ivan Bilibin painting be basically the same thing as, say, a John Everett Millais painting to someone from "the scene", assuming she liked or disliked them about the same?

Yeah basically. "Culture" not meaning anything doesn't mean art doesn't mean anything, it just means that you don't judge it as if it's from "your side". I mean the scene is full of anime obsessed nerds, but obviously virtually none of them are Japanese. (Actually, how many anime nerds in general are Japanese? It's kind of the perfect example of how "culture" is dead in this sense.) For another example, I'm actually a pretty big fan of Italian music.

We're also not in a world war with Russia and God willing will continue to not be in a world war with Russia. You seem uninterested in continuing to not be in a world war with Russia.

In every single act of conflict involving Russia, Russia has been the aggressor.

NATO is obsolete, and the EU should be dismissed, as both are awful organisations.

It's a real thing that's hardly getting enough attention (VICE and some emergent blogs are the only places I've seen it mentioned.)

I'll point out that German culture and art was suppressed during WWII. Hell this means some of my ancestors were the "victims" of this, and it's part of why today I lack any real cultural identity and am just an indistintinct generic Midwestern white yet I'm not bothered by it. I mean Germany was A LOT worse.

Um yes Russia should abandon the eastern Ukraine seperatists as they are F[INKS]ING SAVAGES, those vile terrorists SHOT DOWN A CIVILIAN AIRLINER, bomb them into annihilation. Also I've read about the oppression they are doing of underground Protestant churches. Those disgusting sick f[inks]s are no better than ISIS in my view. Ukraine should annihilate them and reclaim its rightful territory.

And Ukraine in no way oppresses ethnic Russians.

Bernie Sanders' website called for the destruction of ISIS.

Did it use language like "bomb them into annihilation"?

It's just semantics.

This by the way is something that's not getting enough attention.

he's right about SNL. Even the Bill Murray era was horribly overrated. Even Mad TV was better.
SNL is horrible, but he needs a thicker skin. Jeez.


Actually, SNL has been very good this year.  The cast is WAY too big and perhaps most of those people suck, but the writing has been terrific and the top cast members are more than good enough to make it work.  Keenan and Leslie Jones are both great as are several of the white chicks whose names escape me.

wait...so you DON'T like Milo Yiannopoulos?

The people who go to my church mostly voted for Trump, although only a few of them actually like him.

That would be an instant disqualifier for any church I'd ever go to.

Not to my knowledge. I honestly wish I did.

I've seen this place many times in south Minneapolis near a grocery store but yesterday when I saw it I got enraged. Yes of course those vile place should be shut down.

No, of course. Though, judging from what I have been able to see on the web about it, it would not be a great tragedy: seems like crap. There are much better Russian art museums in the US.

Its site says it's the only such museum in North America.

Also as bad as the Saudis are they never put a sociopathic rapist in control of a major country.

Russia was an awful country under the Czar too.

I wish there was a Russian consulate in Minneapolis. If there was I'd burn a Russian flag in front of it on Trump's inauguration day and hold up a sign that said "DEATH TO RUSSIA, LONG LIVE UKRAINE!"

As there isn't, I might just do so in front of this place instead.

I wonder what would BRTD be saying had Putin been in good relations with Obama and Hillary.

You think Obama and Hillary would ever warm up to such a autocratic despotic thug?

Please look at the current list of US-allied leaders who are fitting the description just as well and ever more than Putin.

Name one who has seized territory and is backing a campaign of terror against another territory in a neighboring country.

Saudi Arabia in Yemen comes close.

They didn't actually annex any part of Yemen and Yemen was barely a functioning country beforehand anyway.

So it's fine then?

No but it's nowhere near as bad as Putin. Besides it's not like I'm saying positive things about the Saudi royal family, actually if you read my posting history I hate them too.
73  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should the US break off diplomatic relations with Russia? on: January 15, 2017, 04:52:58 pm
And what would this accomplish exactly?

What did breaking off relations with Iran accomplish?

Because Russia is an enemy of the United States.


You live in the past. Russia is a friend and a future ally of the United States.

China is the real problem.


Can you list any dispute we have with Russia?


Uh, Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, South Ossetia, and the Baltics.

Also it's hideous human rights records and disgusting anti-LGBT bigotry.
