Wasn't the Andromeda thing said to be more about EA forcing them to drop their old graphics program halfway through and pick up a new one they weren't experienced with though?

And what's separation of church and state got to do with "SJW-ized" media anyway?

If that were the case, they would have changed the models back when they changed their graphics program, instead of waiting until release day.

Nothing. I just like the dog mauling "Not Gay Jared".

None, they would be studied because they are bad.

Though to be fair, some of them are having consequences happen to them, Breitbart is losing all its advertisers, Flynn is gone, etc...

Actually neither of them is/was a Cabinet member.
They are advisor/aide who are not confirmed by the Senate.

That's one good funny compilation. I'll never stop to be amused with that whole fiasco.

Graphics looking shitty can be blamed on that (instead of the early assumed incompetence) but aesthetics looking shitty still have that suspicion of SJW influence, specially when they're so over the place.

They should be studied too, so we don't get repeats of that bullshit.

So, uh, I apparently don't pay enough attention to stupid online drama. Might explain why I'm slightly less miserable, lately.



But this seems... kinda bugfuck crazy? Like... oh no, she's dating some dude and decided to not treat people who disagree with her like rabid lepers. How dare this... uh... woman who I'm guessing is popular? Dammit, I feel old or out of touch, now. But seriously, "we can't trust white women because they're white supremacists!"... like, so what does that make the... people of color who eventually get tired of the cult and start to disagree with you as well? Are they white supremacists, too?

Just... what are you hoping to accomplish, and why would anyone who is white want to continue supporting your racist ass?

I feel sorry for Laci and Gun both. Its been a nasty time, and I only see the outskirts of it since Im not a big social media user. It legit sucks, and the irony isnt lost on people that feminists and "SJW" types are telling a women what she can or cannot do with her body under threat of excommunication.

And it really worries me, actually, because while I admit I'm a pretty big asshole at times, many of the problems these groups talk about are actual problems, and I do feel like a major shift is starting to happen to turn away from the major far left types that typically make up those circles.

Groups like Antifa. the shit going on at colleges.. Even the idea that non-black women arent feminists at all... Its all boiling over and Im not sure the opposite isnt going to replace it.

The only good thing I see is the "Anti-SJW" side is also crumbling. Though I think in that case, its cause has largely been co-opted by the chaos makers and legitamite racists.

Not that PC and SJW shit isnt cancer, but I'd like to keep their Bizzaro counterparts in check as well.

I don't understand the Anti-SJW denomination.
From what I've seen people calling themselves that are just SJW with illiberal opinions.
Maybe it was different at a time and it's the effect of the co-optation ruinshin mentioned.

Concerning the girl the problem is making people into icons/heroes\saints of your believe.
People change and then you feel betrayed.
That's why dead people make good rallying call, they're not going to change their mind.

SJW's have a really bad habit of cannibalising one another. If you stray one inch from the pack narrative they'll eat you alive for being perceived as a traitor.

I'm not going to pretend this hasn't happened among the anti-SJW crowd, but any vitriol towards 'em seems to be a lot more private, or at least less widespread (cuck memes aside) when there's disagreements. That probably comes from the anti-SJW crowd varying a great deal more on the political scale than the almost exclusively far-left SJW's.

Since there isn't really any ideological consistency on the Anti-SJW side you get a bunch of people. You get center left that don't care for progressives, center right,Neocons, and Alt-right in there as well.

It's unity based on similar dislike not based on similar beliefs.

Most of the drama that I've seen tended to come from people who seemed to be more progressive than they were center left. Some decided that since Trump is in office they were going to go back to the old Left vs Right issue which ended up causing a number of issues since some of the people they started palling around with didn't have very clean records.

There are too many groups that are supposed to be oppressed. If all non-white straight Christian males were considered oppressed that is going to be the vast majority of the population. Blaming the system is just refusing to take responsibility for your actions and too many people want a piece of that pie. It is a really unhealthy mentality for people to have.

So I was watching the twitch stream of E3 and as soon as a black character popped up in the Dishonored 2 trailer, there were like a dozen people saying "MUH DIVERSITY." The rightists are still freaking out about things like the Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer, too.

Are right-wingers only happy when the only characters in games are white Christians or something?

Bonus: There are people whining about Wolfenstein 2 being about killing Nazis.

No they arent.

EDIT, just to be clear, the image circulating and shit is a comment from over a year ago in response to Sweden giving a "We should all be feminists" book to every 16 year old.

Way to go, leftists.


The "right wingers" never pulled this shit with Obama. Yet, the left is totally willing to bask in the want to assassinate a sitting President. So much for the left being the "classy" ones, eh?

Not going to actually watch it, but what, Julius Caesar was represented by a Donald effigy? I figure that's either tremendously disrespectful to the Roman emperor or tremendously generous to the president. Are we sure those were leftists?

Well, seeing as they seem to be pulling the same psychotic mental breakdown that Leftists have suffered for the past 8 months since their queen was destroyed, yep. Oh, and the whole "IT'S ART!" excuse.

Meanwhile, the Left has big names and mainstream groups (like all of these "actors") agitating for assassinating Trump. Like, oh, say, Kathy Griffin.

None of those were at klan rallies. Those were just regular ol' mainstream rightists.
I can never remember if you're actually American or not. I really should keep a list of where people are from. If you aren't, I suppose it's understandable. I heard the Right call for his assassination or execution all the time.

What's the difference to a Marxist like you? All of us "rightists" are just "racists" and "backwoods dwelling science-denier neanderthals" to you, anyway. None of those things you posted are from "rightists".

Quote:

If you aren't "right wing", you don't truly believe in being "American", so cut the crap. The only one here who sounds "un-American" are leftists like you, who want to destroy the Constitution, piss on the Bill of Rights, and label everyone who isn't a part of your Social Justice cult a "racist sexist bigot homophobe". You don't believe in what America stands for, therefore you can't truly claim to care about being "American", or not.

True Americans don't follow the sick and twisted ideals of Socialism, which is steeped in Eurocentric elitism and totalitarianism.

Yeah, never happened. All of those pictures are from Klan rallies. The Tea Party actively shunned plants and frauds, like this:
