Let's talk conspiracy theories and redpills.

The remnants of pre-communist China that were put there by Western powers?

Not just, no. Look again at that poster and you'll find a Buddha figurine among the discarded, soon to be destroyed relics.

There is a reason why the vast majority of the Chinese population supported the CCP over the

I am in no way a conspiracy theorist.

Cultural Marxism.

I have occasionally used this as a descriptive for the means and methods of the politics of intersectionality, but it's a flawed and probably meaningless term if divorced from the conspiracy theory surrounding the supposedly subversive i

Alabama's Special Senate Election

Crucially, the allegations have an uncomfortable amount of circumstantial evidence and Moore's response to it was at least in part a variation on the classic "I don't recall..." defense. Plausible deniability is not good enough when the charge is you're a grown man actively pursuing high school girl

White man murdered by police.

Even Famov had to pay lip service to the fact that this was pretty much objectively evil on many levels.

You know, I entered the thread unfamiliar with this story and anticipating what my likely response would be. The text of the thread did not shake that impression and neither did the next arti

There are precisely three types of people that don't hate the winter. The first, of course, are children. For the second group we have insane outdoor sportsmen like Jet. Lastly we have naive southerners that think it would be wonderful to actually have a white Christmas for once, but the reality is

Alabama's Special Senate Election

Got a feeling this is the beginning of the end for the GOP...

The beginning of the end was June 2015. This would be easier to see if our opponents were more competent than the Democrats, but alas the rot goes deep within both of these institutions. The Republicans may tank in 2018, but there's n

White man murdered by police.

For instance, a few months back, I had a black friend from England visit (fairly conservative, meaning his judgment on this was not clouded by political bias), and he almost didn’t want to land in Chicago because he was afraid of being harassed by the police.

His perception is irrational regar

White man murdered by police.

There is no racial angle to this. The officer was wrong, had a bad attitude, and was a liability on an honorable profession. This incident is tragic for reasons far greater than the masturbatory reactions it seems to have inspired in this thread, and it should suffice to say that Philip Brailsford d

Franken shouldn't resign (but I want him out...sorry, clickbaity title)

Well, I'd agree that there should be a process. I'd go so far as to say that resigning amid unsubstantiated allegations is a betrayal of the constituencies that put these people in office. Their feet should be held to the fire, and in the case of Al Franken it escapes me how he wouldn't survive u

The following is a horrifying account from Franken's latest accuser.

"We posed for the shot. He immediately put his hand on my waist, grabbing a handful of flesh. I froze. Then he squeezed. At least twice," Dupuy wrote.


Well, it's not so much horrifying as it is a total non-even

Trump Plans to Formally Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital

If Israel says its capital is Jerusalem then its capital is Jerusalem, but it's nice that the United States has finally deigned to show a modicum of moral courage on the matter.

Female police Captain fired after accusing fellow officers of not
understanding due to White Male Privilege

I tried looking up the statistic in question to see if I could get some kind of clarification on what is meant by "police violence". What I was able to learn is that the figure comes from the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP), which is an LGBT advocacy group. The number sees a fai

Taft

The man is never given his due credit and more often than not he's reduced to folk tales regarding his size. Like it or not his vision for the Republican Party won out over Roosevelt, and in his final couple of years he'd actually managed to lose about 100 pounds as a matter of physical fitness. He

Brown immigrants explain there is no British Culture

Despite what the title of the OP seems to suggest I don't believe the answers would have been any different had the respondents been white. The impression I have of Britain, based mostly in what I've read from Smiling and Arch, is that this cultural malaise is ubiquitous. Ideally when asked this que

This goes to the bone. My observations are as follows:

Communication, or language, or "transphobia" which can apparently include everything up to presenting a video of Jordan Peterson, is not only violence but "gender based violenc

Not that it justifies what he did in any way, but that guy looked like he had something going on. Possibly drugs.

I don't use public transportation and as such I have no investment in this issue, but I can agree with the idea that sitting on a crowded bus with your knees at a 120 degree angle is

Free speech isnt hate speech

Is self criticism of your own movement beneficial to the movement?

I can't stress enough how much I agree with pac on this. Yes, self reflection and criticism is absolutely necessary. It is to the extent that a political movement can withstand criticism that it deserves support from anyone.
