we should ban everyone who takes part in the stupid and weird 'new hampshire women' meme thing

Probably.

Also don't ban Cora, good counterweight to Krazen.

Both should obviously be banned, but Cora's worse.  AFAIK, Krazen's never called for blowing up school buses full of children even if he is a repulsive bigot.

Was that caused by the same undesirable, inbred genes that caused you to become a neo-Nazi alt-rightist?

Both strawmen. 

How so? 

Jews tend to support the Zionist entity, including its wars. Oh, and calling us anti-Semites is pointless because we (anti-Zionists) wear that name as a badge of pride these days.

Call me old-fashioned, but I always considered deliberately blowing up civilians and using the cold-blooded murder of non-combatants as a political strategy to be terrorism.  Then again, I also have this crazy idea that maybe...juuuuuuust maybe, it's wrong to try to blow up school buses filled with innocent children, so what do I know?
Israel has more blood on its hands. It's unfortunate, but some of those things are necessary to send a message.

D*** right it doesn't and neither does Trump's; I assume you voted against him once it became clear he was a sex predator because otherwise you'd be a pathetically obvious hypocrite (to say the least).

January 1757
George II of Great Britain

A Proclamation From Kensington Palace

His Majesty the King has warned for many years the dangers of the pretenders of the Stuart line. It was in Divine benevolence that His Majesty the King and the dearly beloved King George I chose to allow them to live in a modest, Christian life in Europe. In recent months it has become clear that the Stuarts had no plans to live that modest, Christian life and were still intent on overthrowing the good family of the House of Hanover that have ruled the Kingdom of Great Britain for decades. This is why, in his wisdom, His Majesty the King demanded the handing over of the Old Pretender's son, the one Bonnie Prince Charlie, to end the Stuart line and to diffuse the tensions across Europe. It was further in his wisdom that His Majesty the King, seeing no moves by the King in France to hand over the Stuart heir, began the current war in Europe, to protect the British homeland from traitorous rebels. His Majesty the King had hoped that the recent successes of the British Army, Royal Navy, and Her loyal allies would have led the King in France to hand over the traitorous Stuart brood. Sadly, the King in France and His Pompousness the Pope in Rome have not seen the winds of enlightened Protestantism blowing across Europe.

The rebellion in Ireland is a direct result of instigation by the King in France and His Pompousness. The Catholics, who have made a life of swearing allegiance to Rome rather than the Crown, are not a loyal breed. His Majesty the King made many efforts to allow them to live peaceably alongside the good Protestants of the Kingdom. Many Catholics in the realm, especially those in England, Scotland, and Wales, have been good and loyal subjects for many years now. Even Her Majesty the Queen was once a Catholic but, in order to be a loyal wife and faithful subject, she converted to the Church of England as a sign of loyalty. Many of His Majesty the King's allies in the current war in Europe are of the Catholic faith, but recognize the danger in such blind loyalty as His Pompousness vainly demands. The current events in Ireland show that there is something in the Irish breed that makes them untrustworthy and less loyal than rats; when coupled with the plague of Catholicism, they can never be good subjects.

The perpetrators of this rebellion in Ireland will not receive the King's Peace, nor be offered the promise of safety and protections ever again. All Catholics in Ireland who wish to preserve their well-being must convert to the Church of England and commit the following oath to an officer of the British Army or become subject to imprisonment, torture, severe fining, banishment, and even death for their continued disloyalty. Violation of the Oath is punishable by death and death alone. Good and loyal Catholics across the realm are encouraged to take the same oath, to assure His Majesty the King of their continued loyalty.

His Majesty the King grants letters patent to create His Royal Highness Prince William, the Duke of Cumberland as Duke of Leinster in the Peerage of Ireland and all lesser title associated with it.

His Royal Highness Prince William is also appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.

Any man who presents the head of both James Stuart the Old Pretender or Bonnie Prince Charlie to His Majesty the King will be rewarded handsomely with titles, land, and wealth beyond the dreams of peasants.

Quote
The Oath of Loyalty:

I renounce any prior oaths of loyalty and allegiance to any person, institution, or nation and I wholly pledge myself and my posterity to His Majesty George II, his heirs, the Kingdom of Great Britain, and the Church of England. I do so with freedom of mind and spirit and with no purposes of evasion, subversion, or disloyalty. I wholly repent for my past transgressions and humbly ask His Majesty the King and Lord Jesus for forgiveness and absolution. God save the King!

Statement from Warsaw:

Whatever disputes we may have with France, Poland-Lithuania remains as firmly committed as ever to the church and the cause of our oppressed brothers in Christ.  This statement is an outrage against all of European Christiandom and the Polish-Lithuanian Confederation demands its immediate retraction and an apology for the wicked slander which has been hurled at the Holy See.  I have to believe this statement was the result of some grave misunderstanding as surely no man could be so foolish as to profane His Holiness' office by writing such foul blasphemies.  I can only hope that this statement is some vile forgery, perhaps even the foul product of yet another sickening scheme by the Holy King of Sin.  We condemn in no uncertain terms this infamous declaration, demand its immediate withdrawal, and pray that the Lord will bless the King of England with the wisdom to clarify this most disconcerting statement.  No Polish-Lithuanian blood shall be spent on a war against our Irish brothers in Christ.  These are good Christian men who must not be punished for the acts of a few radicals.  The cause against which we fight is French greed and megalomania.  It is my sincerest hope that this remains true of the English King as well...

I still don't get why people think I'm a troll. I may have made some posts in the past that were expressions of my anxieties, some of which turned out to be justified, but most of my viewpoints are quite real. I may perhaps just need to forget about politics, as it's not good for my personal mental health.

The time where you flip-flopped into being a pro-Trump Republican for about 1-2 weeks springs to mind.

Side X: Jews, blacks, Catholics, and immigrants are inferior beings and thus need to be removed from our country or killed.

Side Y: We think this flag is bad.

Reasonable Person:
SJWs are every bit as toxic as the other 'side'.

Side X: Riot on the streets, burn down town; white people can't eat ethnic food; don't say 'radical Islamic terrorism', "demographics is destiny"

Side Y: Elect maniac president, ignore facts or truth; hold fascist rallies, drive car into crowds; Islam should be banned, immigrants are the devil

I see no difference. Both are focused on identity and both are absurd.

How can you say this just two days after "Side Y" killed an innocent young woman?

If you think this is a fair comparison, you're just doing the work of the Nazis.

Don't feed the troll.  Beet may be a more articulate troll than the average bear, but he'a a troll all the same.

I don't think OH 14 is in play, with the way the district is, and are OH dems concerned that Betsy Rader isn't really a great candidate for a playable seat?

OH-14 would definitely be in play with a strong Democratic candidate.  Rader has a lot to prove, but at least she's actually raising money Tongue  I'd prefer an elected official from Lake County, but this a step in the right direction.  As for OH-7, I've always maintained that seat could flip in a wave with the right Democrat.

Just to clarify, Turn 3 closes on August 18th @ 5 pm PST.

I'm debating doing more events in real time during the turn (like to Pope event) in order to adequately respond to rapidly changing events without having to wait until the end of turn update, but I was wondering what you all thought before I went forward with it. Would it be a problem or does it help?

Will the events help the Polish crown?  If so, then I think that's a great idea Tongue

Regarding Poland:
I now recognize Stanislas Leszczynski the rightful king of Poland and I now officially support the rebellion against this anti catholic Augustus.


The Polish people will not meekly submit to France's efforts to install a colonial puppet-ruler upon the Polish throne nor will they be deceived by the infamous rogue who dances like Nero with a golden fiddle at Versailles while Frenchmen starve on the streets of Paris.  Is this the work of a true Christian and man of our Lord?  No.  It is the work of a corrupt man who has grown fat as a hog whilst living off the sweat, toil, and tears of French Christiandom.  The "Holy King" of Sin claims I am anti-Catholic and yet I have always been (and indeed shall remain) a erstwhile champion of the Church.  Was it this so-called anti-Catholicism that drove France to ally itself with the Polish crown only to reverse itself like some throughly debauched craven the moment it became politically expedient?  Or maybe...just maybe...it was that the "Holy" King of Sin knows that I am a resolute champion of the Catholic Church and cares far less for the fate of European Christiandom than he does for installing some minion upon the Polish throne.  Was there ever such a black heart as that Louis XV?  Nay, for the man if he can be called such after his cowardly nature has been so spectacularly brought to bare plainly hath no heart.

Statement from Warsaw:

Poland-Lithuania remains as it always has, resolutely devoted to seeing our Lord's peace spread throughout European Christiandom.  It is my sincerest hope that at the end of all this bloodshed, there will yet be a day when that dream will be realized and all the ill-gotten gains of small, wicked men shall be returned to their rightful owners.  However, that day can never come while men such as France's so-called "Holy King" sits upon a golden throne in the monument to Mammon known as Versailles while his own people starve in the streets. 

Before this tragic war began, there were some in my court who advised against entering into an alliance or indeed even negotiating with France.  Like most, I'd heard the profane tales about the decadent court of that nation's "holy" King of Sin and yet I did not believe them.  How could such vile infamy be true?  What heathen could be so wicked?  Surely such barbaric acts must be some wretched fiction spread by France's enemies.  Those were simpler days...days when a man could be forgiven for thinking his neighbor's word still meant something.  Mayhaps it was naive to think such a man as the so-called "Holy King" would remember what our Lord says about baring false witness. 

Alas, today I am listening with new ears: the ears of a man who, having seen the truth with his own eyes is left with no other course of action except to accept it.  My court has recently learned that the Prussian attack upon Saxon and Polish lands was the direct result of a black and ruthless scheme to drag the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth into an unnecessary and manufactured war.  Who would commit such a crime against the peace-loving peoples of Europe?  None other than Louis XV of France, a man who has proven himself to be a rank scalawag of the blackest order.  As a result, it is all to clear who the Poland-Lithuanian commonwealth's true enemy is: those French villains who conspired to drag our nation into a senseless war. 

We will not dance like a puppet on the so-called "Holy King's" strings.  The Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth effective immediately demands that all Russian troops withdraw from Polish lands.  The Tzar has previously indicated that his men would withdraw upon request and now comes the time for him to prove himself to be a man of his word.  We have received the same assurances from Austria. 

Prussia has proven themselves a most unexpected friend to the Polish people by bringing this infamous scheme to light, but a friend all the same and we are a proud nation...one which stands by its friends.  As for our newfound enemy, that most unholy scoundrel Louis XV, I fear there is no choice but for Poland to declare war upon France.  While we have as yet no proof that Austria was a party to this scheme it raises questions...questions which could easily be laid to rest if Austria will join us in forcefully condemning this wicked scheme.  If not, I fear there will be little choice but to respond accordingly.

Augustus III, King of the Polish-Lithuanian Confederation

Bronn's bromance is more with Tyrion, who is also there... and Bronn is ultimately a sellsword, and a pragmatic one, he declined Tyrion's offer to be his champion during the trial by combat.

But that was way back when the show was still trying to be an adaptation of the books as opposed to...well...whatever it is now.
