Honestly, I think if we got Tay when Trump’s star started to wane a bit post 2020, she’d complain that he didn’t stop the election fraud and supported the clotshots. And probably also that he didn’t destroy Israel, if we’re being completely realistic.

I assume you’re talking about “full Tay” as in post-lobotomy Tay, but I read “full Tay” as peak based Tay… I’d expect her answer to be that it isn’t moral to not use a racial slur whenever you have an opportunity.

I really hope he got hundreds of replies going “bruh, LMAO” to those tweets on the left.

Isn’t the plot that she’s there because she got kidnapped, and Leon is there to rescue her? Which would mean that as a kidnapping victim, she might be expected to have a rather limited wardrobe, perhaps not suited for wherever she was taken?

I think that if anything does “break capitalism,” it will be large-scale automation, although I might argue that it breaking human nature is a more accurate concern. The fear I have about automation is twofold: first, that it will take lots and lots of jobs away and that we as a society won’t replace them—or the lost income from them—well, and second that it will take human purpose away. Plenty of coffeehouse communists have said things like “when we don’t have to work all day, I’ll [paint, or write, or whatever],” but the way things are going, it looks like AI output will actually overtake those things well before we get, say, an automated plumbing tool that is well suited to navigate every aspect of physically going to a client’s home without being prohibitively expensive, to say nothing of the risk of it being attacked and dismantled. In comparison, ChatGPT is open to anyone with a computer to access from anywhere they can get an internet connection.

One thing that disgusts me about it is how transparently absurd the logic for protecting Jews in particular is—it goes: “it’s particularly bad when this happens to Jews because they’ve historically been the victim of that stereotype,” and then, if you ask why a stereotype of being successful and powerful is considered offensive, the logic continues with: “ascribing Jews power and influence has historically been an early step in them being singled out and persecuted for that perceived power and influence, and this has happened many times.”

Now, there’s not anything strictly wrong with that logic (setting aside questions of whether the stereotype is accurate or not as not directly relevant to the logic itself )… but it does compel one to go back to the start of the logic and raise the question of “if this stereotype is part of a repeating pattern that leads to violence, why is it not deeply concerning to see whites painted with that stereotype?”

Why? Treason is a federal crime for which one of the possible punishments is death, and could theoretically include willfully allowing a spy balloon to gather intelligence by flying over US territory. It's not a definite case of treason, and not all cases of treason result in the death penalty, but calling this a glowpost seems silly. A glowpost would be "we should go hang Biden and and the jackass who told him not to shoot it down for treason," as that would be advocating violence. This is advocating the application of law.

Sure, but I don’t seehow you could possibly win a high level race without being thin enough to be attractive (assuming your face isn’t horrible or something).

It deeply concerns me that we’re not training people to do a job they’re physically incapable of.

I’m sorry, what?

[The archive isn’t loading right for me, so some of this may be addressed in the article]

I don’t recall the details, but I do recall hearing at the time speculation that this guy had been released early and essentially allowed/encouraged to stir up trouble at the riot by fed handlers. If there’s any truth to that, I can see a suit against the feds who did that, if the father can prove that they knew he had some sort of mental illness that prevented him from controlling himself. I do not know that I would agree with it, but I at least see the grounds.

I cannot, however, see any grounds for that suit including Kyle. Even if the previous premise is true, that would merely make Kyle a victim of those federal agents; if anything, he could be suing them himself in that case.

I would like to say that the judge allowing him to be targeted is stupid or absurd, but we all know it’s evil.

My understanding is that GitHub is fairly woke, so I have to ask: is this founder responsible for it being woke, did it happen entirely after he left, or did he get forced out by it? If it’s the third option, there’s a follow up to that: does he understand the fundamental flaws of wokeness that led to his outsting, or is he one of the naïve lefties that thinks the principles are okay and it just went a little too far recently?

Speaking of Gotham/Gotham Girl… what shitty power design! It’s a cool concept, but “able to body the entire Justice League” is way too high of an upper limit, especially for something created by a vague experiment from a C-tier villain. It’s the same reason I hate The Sentry—“any person can drink this serum and get world-ending powers” is a fantastic way to destroy all sense of scale and stakes for an entire setting.

Don’t forget other highlights like:

  • Flashpoint Thomas Wayne Batman turned into a supervillain and engaged in psychological torture of Bruce because he disapproved of Bruce as Batman.
  • An absurd scene where several of the various Batfamily heroes confront said Flashpoint Batman. They beat him until he is lying on the ground, barely conscious, in a pool of his own blood… only for him to then stand up and defeat them all in a fight that takes place mostly offscreen, because he gets very mad while they stop to treat his wounds.

There are other examples, but those two stand out to me because it shows that it wasn’t just Tom King’s dialogue that was crap—he also had no respect for characterization or consistency in character abilities. You want to let a guy we assume is roughly on par with Batman beat Damien, Huntress, or diversity token Batwing in a fight? I’d be surprised if he didn’t. Have that guy beat Tim Drake, Batwoman, or the Barbara Gordon Batgirl? A little tougher, but sure. Have him beat Cassandra Cain? Okay, I can buy that if she’s having a bad day, but it shouldn’t be easy. Have him beat all seven of them at the same time, starting from a position of curled on the floor, beaten and bloody?

That’s just an insult to continuity, and basic writing skills, well beyond what I am willing to accept.

They weren’t wrong, as it turns out. At least, not since many (most?) people left.

The saying is "The blood of the Covenant is thicker than the water of the womb". So it actually means that bonds you forged yourself can be stronger than family.

I’m pretty sure that’s a false etymology popularized by a viral tumblr post.

That’s irrelevant to his comment, which specifically says “MRNA tyranny,” and is therefore referring to the mandating of an experimental drug that Trump helped to create and promote.

A better counterpoint would be that Trump has spoken out against mandates for the vaccination, but it is not wrong to say that his focus on and continued support of such a poor medical decision as the creation and administration of this drug is disturbing and incompetent even if he does tack on an admonishment not to force it on people.

I’m dissatisfied with Trump, but seeing people like Bill Mitchell switch to DeSantis is another sign to me that DeSantis wouldn’t be any better.

An argument could be made that even if his understanding of human anatomy is flawed, he does have skill in portraying what he erroneously believes that anatomy to be. If you look at his infamous Captain America, for example, the inclusion of lighting, texture, and reflections is still way ahead of the awful semi-cartoon, detail-free stuff that’s in a lot of modern comics, and even that crap is still in turn better than Calarts.

There also seems to be a loose implication here that burning a bible is fine with Sweden and that it is only the Torah that is protected. Do you know if there’s an article that elaborates on if he received permission for that? Because this one doesn’t make it explicit either way.

Oh come on, you can't be serious. Women don't have racial loyalty, they side with other women only. Any other position is purely a fakeout.

Wouldn’t a complete lack of racial consciousness inherently enable a replacement, intentional or not, because they will happily import women of every race? Which would then lead to race-mixing with the global minorities getting shafted overall. The idea that women don’t have any racial loyalty isn’t entirely one I agree with, but if you are right, wouldn’t that make them easier to manipulate in exactly the way you’re saying they aren’t being manipulated?

I’m going to guess that some naive white girl dared to cosplay as a black character, and therefore is getting doxxing and hatred sent her way.
