Did you know they are trying to make 'eunuch' into a gender identity?

Unironically, that'd be less of a issue than trans. It just branches "man" into two sub-groups which are both still unambiguously male. No issues with public accommodations. No issues with sex-segregated sports. No pronoun gibberish.

The end result of that is what? Marketing two kinds of underwear depending on how much room they have in the front?

"You don't understand! Putin only stopped attacking during Trump's administration because he owned Trump! Annexations happening under Obama and Biden's oversight only proves that Trump is a bad guy!"

I have heard them unironically try this explanation. It's... sad.

The most surprising part of this story is that someone was watching the Grammys.

estimated around 70% COVID deaths came from people who were overweight. So if you're a healthy person, your chances of dying from alpha COVID after infection is even lower than 0.1%.

The sad thing is that it does not mean that. 71.6% of American adults > 20 are overweight (or obese). Around 70% of deaths from any source being in overweight people would be the expectation if being overweight made no difference.

or that rugged individualism enables anyone to succeed if they just work hard enough.

It was working great until you kept expanding the role of government. Now no one can succeed without greasing its palms.

Yes but at least "woke" was a vague nonsense term from inception whereas "racist" had a definitive meaning.

"This game is woke" - Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. It's open to interpretation.
"Hiking is racist" - Just plain retarded.

also, wouldn't that hurt my male Hungarians as well?

I doubt he would have done anything if it wasn't for there being an optics risk that a South American country showed more backbone.

Man, this will make that last chip shortage look like nothing in comparison.

This is why. The US doesn't need anything from Russia. Europe does. Start shit with China and the US suffers. Drag it out in Europe and it just makes the EU dependent on the US and costs the US nothing.

"But what about the billions in tax dollars!?" you ask. Those are getting funneled back into the US military industrial complex and into the usual suspects' wallets. Business as usual. They're making money off this.

Hot wars are only good for a little while. Your consumers and taxpayers start going off and dying. A long, smoldering war keeps the money flowing for decades. Poke the Pooh Bear that hard and it's not going to be a proxy war.

a wedge between the Black and Jewish community. I think this movie will endanger Jews

Why would a wedge between those two groups endanger one side? What is that author trying to say?

Not explicitly, but his name is obviously borrowed from Sadiq or Shadiq, which are both Arabic names. Maybe I'm falling into the "coding" trap myself, but he's 10000x more Arabic than Suletta is whatever they're claiming she is.

Also, they gave him and only him harem pants and sandals. Don't tell me that design, paired with the open shirt, isn't evocative of Aladdin. Cut off his sleeves and bro would be singing A Whole New World. https://it.gundam.info/about-gundam/series-pages/witch/gwitch/jp/character/2022/07/05_front.png

All your links worked fine for me and the cert is valid. The problem is probably on the other commenter's side.

Middle East or anywhere like that. Anime isn't subtle

No they're not. There's literally two characters in Witch from Mercury that are obviously Middle Eastern and black.

The character in question is just the "tanned rural hick" stereotype you see in anime all over the place.

I usually take a look back at men like Booker T. Washington or George W. Carver and shake my head at just how effective Democrat policies were in destroying an entire group of people. Probably not what the people pushing Black History Month had in mind. In fact if you said something like:

“A lie doesn't become truth, wrong doesn't become right, and evil doesn't become good, just because it's accepted by a majority.”
- Booker T. Washington

today, the SJWs would be the first one to attack. And that's not even one of the spicier quotes.

“Among a large class, there seemed to be a dependence upon the government for every conceivable thing. The members of this class had little ambition to create a position for themselves, but wanted the federal officials to create one for them. How many times I wished then and have often wished since, that by some power of magic, I might remove the great bulk of these people into the country districts and plant them upon the soil – upon the solid and never deceptive foundation of Mother Nature, where all nations and races that have ever succeeded have gotten their start – a start that at first may be slow and toilsome, but one that nevertheless is real.”

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

“In terms of people seeing themselves reflected, whether it’s ethnic or LGBTQ, when you have people who are diverse, the lens with which they evaluate [content] factors in things that I think my white colleagues just don’t think about,” one former executive said.

Damn. I didn't realize they'd already banned white people from the alphabet club.

To a degree. I think a ton of it is rooted in wanting to have a "revolution" and being willing to come up with an excuse to tear down what everyone else has built. It's people who want to feel they're achieving something when the only tool they have is destruction. Regardless of if that's the dominant ethnic group, the nuclear family, common sense, etc.

But that's such a sweeping and vague motivation that you do anything against it directly. Or maybe there's really two groups for each of them. The destructive revolutionaries who will pick up any cause if it gives them a reason to undermine society and the people who only care about their own singular cause. The latter being motivated largely by allowing themselves to be lead around by the former.

The question of why there is a growing group of people seeking validation by wantonly ripping down everything around them is a deeper one and I don't have a good answer.

It's both.

Wokeness, Critical Theory, Postmodernism, CRT, drag queen story hour, and anti-white rhetoric/actions are all real issues. Sometimes related. Sometimes not.

Trying to pin everything wrong with society on a single idea is a coping strategy to reduce the full scope of the problem so it seems more addressable.
