Recently there was a mass shooting in the US, and again the tired, stupid and discredited topic of “violent videogames” was raised by the media, and even Donald trump said that violent videogames where a problem and he would do something about it. Quickly, people like Anita sarkeesian, or media like Polygon, bashed Trump for his words and for suggesting that videogames can cause violence.
All good and dandy, except for one little problem: That they have been claiming the exact same things as Donald Trump for years. Anita has a long history of saying that games are gross, sexist and violent and are a great influence that make people behave in that ways, and gaming media like Polygon have writen article after article bashing videogames for been too violent and relating them to mass shootings.
It’s clear to me what is happening here. I’ve always said that people like Anita don’t care about videogames, and don’t really think the things they say, they just said them because at that time it was the way to jump into the ideological wave that assured a big load of money. But that same ideology considers Trump the biggest menace to mankind (sorry, should i say “peoplekind”) in history and anything related to him is anathema. So now they find that if they keep saying what they’ve always said, they would have to support Donald trump, which would be a cardinal sin, and they would be rejected by the ideology giving them money. So they have to try to distance themselves of their own opinions to distance themselves of Trump, so they can keep winning money.
Essentially, they’re showing the true colors that movements like Gamergate always warned about.
Yeah, i know he just wants a scapegoat to shut the anti gun activists up, but it would be hillarious.
No. Socialism is not fascist, and national socialism wasn't fucking socialist just because it had it in the name. Holy shit what kind of fucking bubble do you have to be in to believe this kind of horse shit?
Fucking communism and fascism are two diametrically opposed ideologies. Fascists target the left in order to silence their opposition, but why should we be worried about facts when we can just autistically screech about how nazis were socialist or whatever. Why worry about truth when we can autistically screech about how fascism is socialism or whatever. If you're going to be an idealogue, atleast be fucking honest about it, instead of trying to justify shit, by making a false fucking dichotomy between the left and fucking nazis you god damn cunt.
It is unbelievable that anyone could be this ass backwards fucking retarded. Were you dropped on your head as a child, are you purposefully misrepresenting the left, or are you dumb enough to genuinely believe that people who believe in having equality of opportunity, are the same as people who want to kill the gays, jews, immigrants, and want to have a "superior race"? Are you that dumb?
First actually getting liberal media to print "TRUMP IS COMING FOR YOUR GUNS!!!" story, and now this?!
Seventh-dimensional warhammer 40K, right here.
If you're one of the good ones, what are you doing to lessen the power and insanity of Antifa and the mainstream-liberal media?
It's basic economics, really. Hurp derp.
Oh yeah and medicare for all—it's so bad that you can only think of two examples and you have to lie through your teeth when you say it's "all bad." Clearly you've been listening to Lyin' Ted, so let me indulge you again: those horror stories you hear of Canadians waiting in line for HOURS to get care are, admittedly, true stories of horrible things happening to innocent people—but the chances of you actually waiting an insane amount of time in a hospital with a medicare-for-all system is very slim.
Basically what I'm saying is those stories are being told from people who got really unlucky. It happens, but very rarely.
Also...really? Venezuela? Their economy is laughable compared to ours and it's mostly dependent on petroleum—and with the recent rising and falling we've been seeing in the oil industry, it's no wonder that their economy is suffering and thus, their healthcare system is suffering.
You and Silver seem pretty uneducated for the amount of REEEEEEEEEs you're throwing my way
You really are a leftist.
Infowars is an uncensored news source run by a meme man who knows people think he's crazy, and he makes that work for him so he can get away with referencing things otherwise dismissed as for insane people only. Surely, you remember how he turned out to be right about the people that, as he hilariously put it, "Put chemicals in the water to turn the friggin' frogs gay".
Richard Spencer, on the other hand, is some random e-celeb nobody heard of until you leftists started labelling all ideologies you loathed under the banner of "Alt-Right", giving this guy a chance to come into the spotlight and yell "I'm the leader of the Alt-Right!", even though he's not anyone's leader. People listen to fashwave ironically because it's a breath of fresh air compared to usual leftist media. Leftists have done more for fascism than anyone else ever could, it's hilarious.
You're comparing two comedians on my side to the two violent and propagandized terrorist organizations on your side, the two armies of liberals modern liberalism radicalized. And the sad part is, you don't see anything wrong with that.
No "Actual Leftist" is going to miraculously descend from the heavens and save the image of the left for you, because the left's shown its true face too many times. Do you have any idea how many libertarians joined the right upon realizing they support human rights and individual liberties, two things the left loathes? Work on cleaning up your own cancerous political party, start by convincing your fellow "Good Liberals" to leave a movement that became corrupt when its leadership became thinly-veiled evil people.
>u dont knooooo me
>omg this is why nobody likes 4channers
>also stop being rude dont make me cry
Fucking leftists, every time.
Fuck that "If you follow us vs them ur as bad as us" nonsense. Leftists started a culture war with the rest of humanity, with intent to censor and dominate said culture. You don't get to claim people who think you're shitheads are "Just as bad" as you just because you think "You're a fucking moron" is as bad a thing to say as "All white people should die".
Obviously there's no problem with labeling all these people together, cause they're all batshit insane losers who only look at one side of the argument whilst completely disregarding any comment from the other side. All of the people I listed follow a very "Us vs. Them" mentality that cannot be broken—hence why I grouped them all together.
And oh yes—because I definitely said I was trying to save the image of the left. It's also amazing that you say the left loathes human rights and individual liberties when those are both obviously things I care about (herp derp)—as do most people on the left.
See, this is why nobody likes 4channers
And if you and "Must peepel" on the left care about human rights, why do they keep getting offended by the existence of human rights? Why do they keep crusading against human rights? If they actually believe in the "Doubleplus Good" things they claim to believe in, why do they act like violent brainless fascists desperate for the political power to act out their culture-police fantasies?
You blocked me you coward, no real shock. Have fun with your head up your own echo chamber.
They can be involved, no one is stopping them. I Love sharing things I love but if they are going to complain about a comic variant cover because it has a female character looking distressed, have it removed and then not buy it when it does get removed then they don't care. If they complain about bayonetta being made for the male gaze when she was made by a woman as her power fanstay and strip her of all her character and call her a "Fighting Fuck-toy" they are not fans. If they say I want to get into things but change all the stuff to match me or else I can't relate they are not fans. I am not a buff warrior but I love Goku. I am not a black woman, but Storm is my favorite X-Men. I have never lost a limb but I love Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist. I don't need to have the characters be exactally like me to enjoy those things. Fans just enjoy it. If they have to change everything about a series before they are interested in joining they aren't real fans.
Women, People of different nationalities, and anyone who is LGBT have never been excluded, they have always been welcome, and I say this a man who is part Mexican, part Italian, part German, and a few other bits of European in my blood. i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/o… We have an issue with people who aren't fan's using their race/gender/sexuality as a shield to bully others and change things they don't care about.
You think because I don't like some someone insulting things I like and saying I'm part of the problem I don't mind that Trump is a moron? I think he's just as big of an idiot.
Does this mean that if we could somehow get him to say that: "Women should get the same pay and 'privileges' as men" that every feminist in the U.S. would swiftly denounce feminism?
Supongo que se refería a esto.
Pero es más fácil crear el pánico moral y crear una narrativa en el medio que decirles a la gente un hecho objetivo. Sale más rentable propagar una opinión que un hecho cuando lo correcto puede ser decir "aquí pueden encontrar los datos en tal dirección para que ustedes puedan sacar sus propias conclusiones" (tal y como yo lo veo). Por eso canales de Youtube como Sargon of Akkad, Bearing o Undoomed tienen una buena reputación por adjuntar fuentes, citaciones, archivos... No todo el mundo lo hace, por ejemplo, Paul Joseph Watson en lugar de adjuntar enlaces en la descripción, muestra imágenes de titulares en los vídeos para que nosotros lo busquemos (y la desventaja que yo veo en esto es que los autores de dichos artículos pueden editar palabras, frases o eliminar el artículo entero).
Y por si alguien más está leyendo esto, animo a leer este estudio sobre los videojuegos no causan sexismo en inglés: www.docdroid.net/11omm/sexist-…
En fin, no me enrollo más con esto. Yo ya he hecho mi parte.
