Someone PM'd me day one and said I should blank them all and that they are promoting the confederate flag
I sent back "It's burning???"
they asked if it would be okay to have a nazi flag with cool flames around it
I sent "Clearly the flames burning the flag to ash are not hot rod speed flames meant to emphasis the coolness. "
they stopped PMing me

I invented the line.



I guess the burning confederate flag, a picture of Sherman, the name Sherman, the phrase "burn it down, and a reference to his march through the south wasn't enough?

Maybe it should start off with "Stars and Bars Bad" or something.

Be the change you want see in the world


Trying to appease idiots is a losing proposition. Stupid people think that sanitizing the forum of anything that even references objectionable material is some form of useful political service or important because they are lazy dullards.

Intentionally misinterpreting the intent and context of a joke or image is straight out of the McCarthy playbook and really should be treated the same way. There is definitely a contingent of posters on this site who would love to form a digital House un-goon like activities committee, for the same purpose that HUAC was formed. That they couch their complaints in progressive rhetoric doesn't make them any less disingenuous.

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

Thereís a troll in CSPAM who has melted down there about this gif, people in CSPAM telling him shoulder holsters are dumb, gun lube chat in the same thread and then finally everyone else in the thread being centrists for not agreeing with his idiot opinions on gun stuff.

He also melted down in the cool zone thread because the protesters didnít fix racism this year and are therefore just as bad as libs and should have just stayed too online like him.

It thinks itís the perfect distillation of that kind of person.

No, all a gangtag is is a bit of html in your avatar(or rather the bit of text under it) so as long as people can pay to change it, they can give ine to themselves.

That said, its also that simple to take one away. Pay your and give them a redtext.

Yeah, I mean at least I know he hated Jews...but so do a large chunk of the Union General Staff....eh. Pushing in the Confederates poo poo and permanently traumatizing the South makes it worth it.

Honestly I want to crowdfund a statute of him and John Lewis to put in Georgia.

there was also his genocide of native americans, but against most of the union general staff

I see it as celebrating a good thing, which I can do while also acknowledging his failures

Same here. He probably wouldn't have cared to meet me but I can respect what he did for for the union against the confederacy.

More importantly, his spectre hangs over south carolina and georgia to this day, and I don't want them to forget that.

His treatment of Indians wasnít exactly funny.

In any case, MLK isnít representative of spousal abuse, because while that happened, he still is a symbol of resistance against white supremacy much like Sherman is a symbol of dunking on confederates despite the fact he was actually an awful racist, just not to black folks.
