I had a very unsatisfying conversation about the very same thing with a woke friend of mine who tried to talk about the french muslim children feeling "othered" by that later decapitated schoolteacher showing cartoons in his class on free speech.
This remark coming from someone i know to be of rather high IQ. :|


"Don't murder people who draw things that upset you" is still a pretty reasonable line imo, even if it'll cost you friends. 3;

Burinju I have contacted Tinkletowne constabulary on my special POC phone (did you lose yours? :sad:), and they tell me they will get the charges dropped IF you secure another episode of Jumping R2 Club, apparently the lads down there are jerking mad for more.

I asked if there are any birds into it, but apparently it's a total sausagefest, but anyway I told them you'd do it so don't make me look like an asshole ok (`ω´メ)

I've come to find IQ (or general intellect) has very little to do with self-aggrandizing delusion. The real problem is that many "woke" individuals *are* intelligent, and that's troubling. There's a barrier within that doesn't allow the prevailing of logic.

I suspect it's not intellectual capacity but desire at play, which as anyone past adolescence will know can override all better judgement, to effects both hilarious and horrific depending on your proximity to the blast wave and its debris.

I wouldn't take Mr. Paty's approach of outright showing the infamous cartoons, because having had a fairly devout religious upbringing, I know it would've probably had the same effect on certain kids in his civics class that the Deicide LPs and interviews I stashed under my floorboards as a 13y/o would've on mine. Jesus eating the Virgin Mary's pussy while she deepthroats Baphomet's twelve-incher may indeed give the gist of secular free expression in modern Europe, but it'll also provoke horror and disgust. I'm sure he knew that but considered it worth the bargain. Maybe it was. Wrenched into choosing between his desire to promote his society's ideals and the atrocity that befell him, I'm forced to agree every time.

Because the murderous response can't be entertained without dehumanising vast swathes of people. My late dog was a lovely lad, but my cousin still walks with a slight limp after an ill-advised startling of him. "The late Harry was a lovely lad, but when old Ms. Higgins showed him those cartoons in the pub, he just had to saw her head off with a boxcutter." That's not a standard to hold human beings to. Even if you are down with a bit of the old religiously-motivated slaughter, designating entire populations as subhuman has a long history of bad outcomes.

Anyway, I thought this next thing was a bit dark for this thread, actually, for this forum, evoking as it does the US's formidable (and understandable!) race neuroses. However, next to bowels and brains spattering office cubicles, and raggedly severed heads hitting the ground (what Frankie and Il Popo liken with shit-eating dishonesty to "upset" or a "punch on the nose"), it's fuckin Archie comics mon. Right down to the weird orangey cunt getting along badly with the blonde Stacey!

TFW racists are in such short supply you have to manufacture them via three-year pickling process. :[

Now that's what I call a DREAM CANCEL :o EDIT: do not worry! I have archived this page too! ;3

How about a mostly peaceful decap? Rather than the grueling horror of your typical ISIS op (which is largely deliberate, but I digress), you instead hire a Kendo master and give him a first-rate katana, then buy the victim a day of relaxation at a world-class spa. Then at some unspecified point, *shing!* One shot, never saw it coming, mostly peaceful. :cool:

Absolutely nothing! It's what he died trying to prevent, and what your friend and other well-meaningly desirous sorts like them are unfortunately going to help bring about.

My doc saved my knob-end when I was a kid, I rammed it up some jungle-crazed slapper and thought I had AIDS. I can't imagine him hacking my fucking head off because I showed him some political cartoons. Actually I'm probably more offended at the suggestion than he would be at said pictures. This is unfortunately the scenario being promoted.

Baton my friend, not because you are Quebecois, or Burinju is a Gingerman, or I am an ambiguous mutt borne of a white man being overpowered and ridden to unwilling climax in darkest Kingston who learned English via Death Wish 2's subtitles, but more because text tends to obscure sarcasm (see poor PABRO on the previous page :o PABRO DID NOTHING WRONG), I'm going to stop for a sec to point out to those playing along at home that the Kendo master thing is a joke. :cool:

I know there is 99.99% chance this was already clear, but I cannot risk deportation :shock:

Humans: you mustn't decapitate people who upset you. Not even if they make you very mad indeed. :sad:

I know it was an XTREEM joke. which is why I countered with an XTREEM joke of my own saying ''pfff... that's not hardcore take, that's actualtty soff 8) ''


but I kinda disagree with your point of ''teacher souhldn't have shown drawings, can make people real angry''.

I think ideally we shouldn't even be afraid of making people angry about this. I feel that train of thought kinda leaves an opening in the door for zealots to put their foot in. it's a perfectly moderate take, but I think we shouldn't be moderate here. but let's agree to disagree

I think we should be able to laugh at religion.


I come from very religious background too btw. Québec didn't escape from STRONG chokehold of the Catholic Church until early '70s.

I figured, apologies mon frère :oops:
Burinju I sadly cannot apologise, the old enmity between Gingerstan and Muttsfordshire in the battle for POC status is too great (;`ω´;)

re Paty, for me life always comes back to balance, a warning on the shitter door at my first job. A deficit of water is fatal to the body. An excess of water is, too. Big fan of organic analogy sociology, it be macro/micro and shit :o Balance itself has to be moderated - you can't under-egg your response to a knife-wielding assailant, not if you intend to survive, and thus I've no pity when one of these cunts gets shredded while charging at armed police. That is an immune response. If they toss their weapon and lie face-down and then after cuffing them PC Plod dumps a clip in the back of their head, that is cancer and likewise needs to be treated.

(if you are willing to die for some pacifistic belief, that is a different matter entirely - good luck, I suppose. for those about to grapple with knife-wielding attackers: Relevant! Image)

I've similarly little sympathy for the irreligious - anecdotally, the sorts who typically pour sneering contempt on faith - who attempt to rationalise these murders, as mentioned in Burinju's post. Though as said re: Frankie - the ones who've eaten bullets, or knives, or trucks, and maintain their charity have my Internet Rando Respect. Not approval, but respect. I can't recall any offhand.

In Paty's case it's my nature as a big soft pussy :oops: but also my tactical judgement, that he might've introduced the principle behind those cartoons with more success had he held back a bit. That is all, though, a disagreement on method but not objective. He had a different idea, and some zealot cunt murdered him for it, and rightly got his in turn, as with the Charlie Hebdo case. Paty may well have been murdered if he'd merely defended the cartoons' existence. For all I know, the kids in the class were receptive to his teaching style, and the piece of shit who killed him simply heard tell of it.

In which case the only real solution is Minority Report. Pre-crime dept, who's willing to murder over cartoons? Fuck me, that's quite a few. Hans! Get ze flammenwerfer!

Same. We have to be able to, for secular society to function. Them's the breaks. If you're burning with psychotic rage at cartoons, or critiques, or non-snipped clits, that is unfortunate, but it'd be better you neck yourself than take it out on someone else.

Watching with unease as morons in English government moot what amount to blasphemy laws. -_-

Personally, this is what happens when your superhero is just some guy. The notoriously OP Jesus doesn't need shitty humans to defend him, and tends to have a less jumpy western fanbase these days.

Well - that Parler shutdown was bullshit. Praise the corporate overlords of truth and justice!

I didn't even use the site as it seemed like a thousand Ben Shapiros talking in unison, but the way all the tech companies came together to just remove it from existance is extremely worrying. This shows we have a dangerous monopoly situation and unacceptable levels of power over discourse in the hands of silicon valley.

The common response from people who think tech oligarchs should control speech, is "build your own" and "muh private company". Difficult to do that when they shoot those down later via their buddies, all the way to the banks. It was only today I learned that most of the complaints about Parler were bullshit anyway - it was a small number of posts far lower than the typical amount of incitement you can find on Twitter every single day, and they were deleted unlike most of the ones on Twitter every day.

The Parler CEO is currently receiving death threats, the usual suspects I imagine, having listened to the media disinformation machine and become riled up about it.

I do not think 2021 will be any better than 2020, in fact it may be considerably worse. I'm feeling all nostalgic about the harmless fun of "murder hornets".

Decentralized P2P FOSS social media alternatives have existed for quite some time now. Why they never enter the debate is beyond me.
