All these "Journalists", seem very upset.

We need guidance here.
What does the "President of the Video Game History Foundation" have to say on the matter?

Nazi-Paedo Armageddon . . . Fuck me!


Thank you, Mr. President;

This recent focus on protecting imaginary children* while actual children are involved in sex trade every day rings particularly hollow for me.

*Twitter, Reddit and even the UN for extra lulz.

It took me over a month to notice but mah boi Zen has been banned. What happened? His last bunch of posts don't seem to be too incriminating.

Praising the Nuremberg Laws on page 15 of the Brexit thread was the straw that decisively broke the admins' back, though frankly I and others smelled it coming a mile away and should have acted a good deal sooner.

Oh, well that earned a smirk from me.

I did consider going one by one through said laws and evaluating them in the thread but then I remembered my promise to myself to be more zen (small z) in my own life.
political arguments in this place do not spark joy.

I always found it amusing how he posted his mug in the pets thread and awkward silence followed for months

Left wing social justice gladiators in America are out of control. It has become a parody of itself to the point where satire is damn near impossible. This extends to every facet of life. Anyone see the social justice banking ads making the rounds on social media?

God forbid you share your opinion if it doesn't fit the narrative. God forbid you don't agree with fringe lifestyles. God forbid you believe in god, unless its Islam, then they think it's dope.

If you are a white Christian straight male, make sure the bulls eye on your back matches your shoes. They won't be happy until everyone is eating the same stale loaf of bread. I'm not surprised it has made its way into video games. This is what happens when you ignore history and cling to victimization.

I feel like it's probably worth pointing out that there is a reason for lefties to treat Islam different to Christianity - the latter being the dominant religion of (say) the USA and fully integrated and enshrined in its systems of power; the former being the religion of a minority and an increasingly vulnerable one at that. So it's easy for a classic edgy youtube atheist's attacks against Christianity to be framed as a systemic critique which doesn't implicate individuals; whereas the same critique levied against Islam is ripe for being hijacked by the far right and other such bottom feeders, and often consciously employed by them. In a context-free, ahistorical, Sam Harris-style world of abstract discourse solely about "ideas" there is no meaningful distinction, but IRL I think it's legitimate to point out how this framing does matter.

That's not to say there aren't plenty of twitter warriors who garble the point beyond recognition and apply it in the wrong places, resulting in seemingly unprovoked righteous hostility against otherwise inert statements. I guess the internet is just one big feedback loop of the direst tenancies of humankind :)

Yep, definitely is why the left is enamored with them. Identity politics is the order of the day(which I find incredibly dumb. why target people based on their skin's melanin proportion? Or which holy-book they read or don't read? or what they have between their legs? or who they want to kiss?), BIG time. and the left's focus is set almost entirely on minorities. ergo, if you're a minority, they will automatically carry you in triumph

I hate the far right, but tbh it's no worse than the far left. Both sides are retarded.

The pendullum swings farther and farther to each opposing side in recent years, it seems, and XTREEM opinions are au goût du jour. Can't say if it truly is worse than 20years ago, but it certainly appears like it on social media and in the MSM too

tbh what interests me more is calling out (and making fun of) the loons à la brianna Wu as the stories happen. This is the true spirit of this thread :P nothingmore

Well it's either falling over each other to appear virtuous or born out of a genuine good intention to outwardly treat a minority within western countries with respect and care as a counter/reaction to the hatred spewed by the far right. In my opinion it gets taken too far because what is Islam but conservatism from overseas.

being the religion of a minority and an increasingly vulnerable one at that.


In global terms i wouldn't call a 5th of the world's population a minority.

Sure, but that's why I was specifically talking about the dynamics in one country. If we were talking about Islam as it manifests itself in a Muslim majority country then obviously it would be a different conversation. But I don't see much insight being gained from analyzing the global Muslim population because you lose a lot of context stemming from a certain group's history, culture and interaction with other groups/subgroups etc.

Blinge wrote:

I can see where you're coming from since obviously immigrants from conservative majority Muslim countries are liable to bring some of that conservatism with them. I guess my overall point is that if it's the "conservative" part you don't like, then it's best to focus on that since you don't risk muddying the waters to the benefit of the far right.

But to dig a little deeper, I'd argue that it's a mistake to view Islam as entirely exogenous to the US. This is a narrative upheld by various species of the far right who will always view the Muslim population of the USA as foreign. It's a refutation of secularism and a nod to the "(white) Judaeo-Christian" meme favoured by the likes of Prager and Shapiro. (Christian) conservatives want to make it a choice between "us or them" but leftists should be inclined to reject this false choice.

I suppose it depends in part on whether or not you believe that second/third generation immigrants represent the culture/country of birth, or that of their forefathers. There is probably some empirical research on this. But my understanding is that you tend to see a synthesis, with my feeling being that integration is the tendency of an open society and compartmentalization that of a closed one. So I would argue that, regardless of the scheming of your enemies, it's wrong to deny a community in a secular society the ability to define who they are for themselves by tethering them more closely to outside cultures than those of the country in which the they live.

I'm with you part of the way. But some cultures integrate more readily than others. It seems to me the pressure to maintain the religion, customs and worldview from the original country is far greater if it's an Islamic one. Gated communities etc. Us and them doesn't just come from the destination country.
*shrug* I hang with a lot of 3rd gens from various countries and most of the italians etc are indistinguishable unless you know their name.

^fair enough. I guess thinking of it as (to what extent I don't know) a difference in degree, rather than a difference in kind, is where we can comfortably agree :)

Muslims are treated with kid gloves in the western world, while there are around 50 nations where they enjoy undisputed cultural dominance. The "increasingly vulnerable" are those that are required to lose an ever-growing share of their nation (with everything that entails) to host and give special treatment to outsiders like Muslims.

Because it is.

So close. Yes, "Judeo-Christian" is an entirely ahistorical and subversive meme that Zionist propagandists like Prager and Shapiro favor, used to manipulate conservative Christians.

Hard to say. The writers did a good job and people desperately want to believe.
