Arguing against immigration to "preserve the standing culture" seems particularly perverse in the case of Britain. Do certain individuals forget that the English are one of the best documented cases where an ethnic group got formed by a large number of migrant waves whose cultural habits had often been diametrically opposed to each other?

Not to mention how many places to which they and their descendants have "immigrated" over the years.

Plus almost all nations were originally unifications of disparate smaller groups to begin with.

Darkmoon Card: Elementals

At 4am, five armed men broke into a guy's house in Houston and immediately shot his dog. He responded by opening fire on the assailants injuring four of them before he was killed. His wife allegedly tried to get another gun to help, but was also killed in the process. The armed thugs then went to the media to cry that some of them were injured in the process and defended their plainclothes no-knock dawn raid because someone in the neighborhood said the residents were drug dealers. All they found was a small amount of weed, and a small amount of 'white powder' of thus-far unknown composition.
https://www.khou.com/article/news/lo...c-d7d425bc9070

Oh, and then they went on TV and threatened everyone speaking out.


[edit] Update: No informants actually bought drugs from the couple. The cop that claimed an informant did was one of the ones shot, and heroin was found in his car. Looks like he was going to plant it but his plan went to shit when there was an actual firefight...

Looks like the 1A is being strangled to death.

[edit] And again...

An 11 year-old was apparently arrested for not standing for the pledge of allegiance. Authorities say he wasn't arrested for not standing for the pledge of allegiance, but for not obeying orders from a teacher and an officer (the order being, of course, to stand for the pledge of allegiance).

No? How about send those death threats to kids just standing there. Man, good thing the media is there to help spread the story of truth and justice as told by black supremacist hate groups.

Now If only they were as upstanding and thorough about that fake news as Jussie Smollett. Real champions of diversity don't just misrepresent stories. No, they just make them up. Future of journalism right there. Somebody get that man a job a CNN, stat!

Just an FYI, Hogg was born in 2000. The shooting was 2018.

It doesn't excuse it and people who send death threats are trash...…

But kid he wasn't.

As long as we're bringing up unrelated things, maybe the Republican support for Saudi Arabia comes from their penchant for pedophilia.

In other news, it looks like Republicans have been caught cheating in an election yet again for the umpteenth time.

I don't think it's much of a stretch to assume that most of these Christian pedophiles who keep getting busted (and those covering for them) are predominantly right-wing. Plus, "loli" porn seems to be disturbingly common in the right-wing corners of the internet. Not to mention the likes of Roy Moore. I think it might have something to do with the social conservatives' obsession with female "purity," or maybe it's the other way around.

Kak, stop, this is just dumb mudslinging

It's not framed in any kind of cohesive argument, if you have something important to say, say it professionally or stick to Bolvars shitposting thread
