>assaulting white women has been normalized

Yknow I’m starting to suspect that one of the reasons Harry Potter is so popular among white women is just because Hermoine gets called a “mudblood” in the second movie. Rowling’s real innovation is creating an N-word for white women that they can fantasize about being called.

They’ve got the biggest persecution complex on the planet.


>and become an honest reseller
Still can't escape that moralfaggotry, eh /pol/? Having to morally justify ones actions to oneself and others is the truest mark of cowardice.

>This is how you get back at the jews, the governments, the corporations, the normie cattle and everybody else who wronged you

And ressentiment is the truest mark of weakness.


>persecution complex
I developed a new theory about JK Rowling's social media activities. I think she's been searching for a way to get "controversial" for a while now so she can be in the news a lot. If you look into how she went against Scottish independence activists there are some really weird similarities to how she frames her treatment now. She was trying to compare scottish nationalists as "nazis" and said they were harassing her for instance. I couldn't find as much about this other part but I wonder if she wasn't trying to do that with Corbyn supporters and/or anti-Israel people on twitter at one point.

tbh that's kind of my stance. I don't think "men" or "women" actually exist and the actual revolutionary position is to seek to abolish them as categories, same as race actually.

It's funny because polacks see this as something worth mentioning. Nevermind that even fucking magacommunism is a bigger blip on the radar than all their bullshit. Nevermind that people are moving to the left, not to the right, across western nations. The only hiccup in that process yet is the insane warmongering campaign of western media that is in full swing today, and it will inevitably blow up in their faces (it does already, just not on a big scale). Nevermind that the Palestine protests are entirely left-wing despite their desperate desire to tie reasonable anti-zionism to their seething hatred of the jews. Nevermind that they are nothing politically despite a million people visiting their board every month and many more being exposed to their "memes" through secondary sources. Nevermind that they are somehow even worse at acting than even the worst radical liberal "leftoids". People call /isg/ a terminally online shithole, and that's true, but posters itt got nothing on the average polack.


No they changed the base model to have these weird proportions and look like a man, you can't get it back how it was


>people are moving to the left, not to the right, across western nations

Not here in Germany. The openly right-wing parties have been gaining more and more votes. Even "social democrats" are starting to lose their footing. Most people only care about the culture war and what the culture war focuses on in media is "le woke telling men they're evil and trans penises are female".

Is there any information on how profitable the site even is? This is an insane wage for a mod.


That's precisely what he wanted, what do you think propaganda is?


Kill yourself, braindead retard.


You should speak to white women sometime. You'll be shocked what comes out of their mouth.


Don't think so but you people can pay to advertise their garbage on this site and there also is incentives to avoid bans and captchas through that 4chan pass. Gotta assume they're making a few bucks by that shit. Also wouldn't be surprised if some governments had their hands in creating certain narratives in there.


depends on how much money feds are willing to give


"what??? white liberal women are allying with rightoid???"
yeah for the very first time too~


Yes, and it's perceived as less of an act of aggression when women say it. Imagine if a guy with a mirror selfie at the gym as pfp would say the exact same shit, different vibes altogether.

My mother is also infnitely more racist than my father. At least out in the open, I don't know what my dad actually believes.


Same, my dad will say racist shit if he gets mad but will also say anti-racist things with seeming earnestness at other times. My mom on the other hand will just casually say racial apartheid is good and slavery should never have ended.

Goddamn. Feels bad. I saw his postings pop up over time. They had their own tag in the sub and everything. I don't post on reddit, but I'm a regular lurker. And holy shit it is so depressing to see a person break down over time, like this. Because however fucked up they were before, the posting and the feedback played a (large) role in ending how they did. Like with Terry Davis.

Just so a bunch of posters can have their pet custom "schizo" to goad for funnies.


Yeah I mean, I dunno, it's hard not to laugh about this, but I do feel terribly for him obviously, I always knew that stupidpol was a shithole, and if I could I would have done something to change it. This is why we need to ruthlessly root out conspiracist/schizo thinking in our communities. If you want to kill yourself then at least go out taking out someone that deserves it (I mean he was literally at the Trump trial…).

it is crazy to think he was probably aware of leftypol though


I do feel a bit better that peter thiel's bullshit is getting noticed by people, albeit I think setting yourself on fire is fucking stupid. I would advocate leftiods to lift more fucking weights and become more muscular so that the arthoe bullshit doesn't sway more people into their supposedly "cooler" side of things. Killing yourself just makes you look like a crazy person and I doubt that the army guy who set himself on fire did much to change the perception of the masses when it came to Israel, it was because Tiktok is a freeer platform when it comes to bot psyops while sites like reddit and 4chan are crawling with them.

Tell me he's wrong, /leftypol/.


He's wrong to single out crypto as a 'doomsday device' it's just the latest finance bullshit. The crypto market already largely fell apart and it didn't tank the global economy or anything. The stuff about the Simpsons is just straight up schizo. That's the problem, plenty of people rail against 'big business' or even 'capitalism' but if they don't have some materialist grounding they're just gonna end up led down the garden path.

he would've been a better roll model for 14-year political twitter users then any other opinionated youtuber or political YouTuber like hasan


The justifications these guys have for other people's behavior is remarkable. Like they think guys are afraid of being told they have overly high standards for fantasy women, and that's why they post the big titty vampre woman? Because she's busted upstairs?
Reminds me of how rightoids were saying they think leftists criticize our car-centric city planning because they want to take women to a house where they're able to crash without an easy plan to get home.
It's like a little thematic apperception test result whenever they post about things that have happened nearby them recently


>Safe horny
I'm fine and dandy that i don't know what that means


Why not just move to another country instead of setting yourself on fire, if you really just need to GTFO

Cringe and globalistpilled

considering he burnt himself for politics, i'm not sure if he or any deep into politics person would've been content with just flying drones.

That's not what he's saying, just that "ACAB" is not a popular position. In his reddit posts he self described as anarcho-communist so I doubt he had much love for the police at the very least as an institution.

I like this passage. Above average manifesto, solid 7/10


Makes more sense than Uncle Ted, but he's still weirdly off the mark. I do worry that his main point is partly true. It's definitely not totally true, though. A lot of the bourgeoisie are deluded into thinking they can continue business-as-usual indefinitely. However, it's likely that there are some haute-bourgeois, maybe some organized faction, that genuinely does plan to use capitalism as a disposable booster rocket before establishing whatever barbarism they intend. But this kind of seems like your typical paranoia about the WEF saying we VILL EAT ZE BUGS. I don't think those guys have the actual power or organizational ability to pull off the great reset type plans. Somebody who would be capable of that sort of thing would be smart enough not to do all of that shit publicly.

It's tl;dr but it was confirmed in the UK at the very least (Philosophy Tube is based in the UK) and we know the UK does not exist in a vacuum:
>UK hires Valent Projects to "counter disinformation" mostly about covid restrictions (see, Joel's Jimmy Dore hit piece) but also had a history of shilling for other government operations such as regime change in Syria
>partners with Philosophy Tube in order to astroturf these liberal-friendly views
>partial funding from Soros' Open Society Foundation, which puts into question why every single breadtube channel is always so adamant that merely mentioning George Soros is "antisemitism."
>consistently frames anyone *actually* critical of the system as a "nazi," "nazbol" or some other right-wing slur, posturing themselves as the "true-left"
It's an astroturfing program explicitly intended to "deradicalize" people and when you know this, their takes make a lot more sense. Agent Kochinski's desperate shilling for every CIA talking point like regime change in Syria or killing Julian Assange makes sense. Joel's constant essays in defense of Biden makes sense. Contrapoint's awful, awful video on capitalism where she basically makes the argument there is no other option makes sense. It's ironic because you can never track these people down to any revolutionary activity or even simple street protests and then they're interviewed on The New Yorker as "the" socialist to listen to.

And in case this has to be stated, no, they're not "literally" a CIA spook. There is a team that helps promote them and do their research/script while they are the face. Yeah, I know that fat slob Agent Kochinski isn't a secret agent who works out Langley. Nobody says this.


it's tl;dr but you should read it: it doesn't actually say very much because there isn't very much to go on and the author padded for length like a motherfucker to mask that fact. why does it repeat the date of founding and patreon subscriber count twice? why does it use the language of a PR agency - already padded! - verbatim, repeatedly? why does it repeat the same core points under several headers? why does it quote the widely acclaimed speaker, writer, journalist, and political analyst Caleb Maupin so much? padding, padding, padding.

i don't trust any circle of content creators, but the idea a popular youtuber glows because the government subsidized a preferred-contractor PR agency to pay them to make a video about covid misinformation is bold to say the least. could it be - and i know this is a bold assumption - that a youtuber was offered money and attention to do a public service broadcast that asked them to say nothing they disagreed with - and they went ahead with it? why, if they're being used to push a more malicious agenda, do we not have evidence of that? at the risk of being controversial: what, exactly, is wrong with the government trying to get people to follow public health advice by hiring a popular figure? what is unexpected about them doing this with an agency they already trust? this only looks bad if you think that covid denial and anti-lockdown protestors look good. (which the author of the grayzone article clearly does.)

the worst part is that when you look at the original docs from Valent the whole thing reeks of incompetence: the primary consumers of COVID misinformation were over 40, PT's audience were mostly under 40… if this is the cutting edge psyops that were deployed in Syria it's no wonder Assad's still in place. if this was the state of Britain's covid messaging, no wonder it delivered the least competent response on the planet.
(my angle here isn't to defend PT specifically, i'm more antagonized by seeing boring news being passed off as interesting by the novel means of writing a dull, dull, oh-so-fucking dull article. if there was any real story it'd be 500 words long.)


>The Anti-Woke blowback is coming
Committing a genocide is an anti-woke blowback already.


"New Atheism" deserves criticism for being short sighted and so easily cooped by western chauvinists but it was a needed antidote to Bush's fundamentalism back in the day. Religious fundamentalist still seethe and can only post fedoras in response to this day.

Also, Compatibilism is basically a nice language game where you redefine terms to get the results you want. Strange how Dennett decided to attack qualia so aggressively when he made an exemption for free will.


Fucking loser lmao


I'm tempted to write something short about how Spaniards have been propagandized pretty strongly to have insane colonial beliefs towards latinamerica.

You see it online, they go fucking crazy when the tern Latin America is used.
>uhmmm actually, latinamerica is the wrong term because bla bla black
>uhmm actually Spain brought civilization to the Americas
And a shit ton of other things. The funniest part of it all though, latinamericans literally do not give a shit what Spaniards think, contrasted with this superiority of these Spaniards trying to act all high and mighty.

The negative side effect of all of this is that it seems that a watered down version of all of this "Spaniards being superior to Latin Americans" ideology, or some form of paternalism, is seemingly ubiquitously present in Spanish culture, particularly the more affluent segment.


Spain it's as irrelevant as latin america, if not more.


Spain has a lower GDP than Mexico.

Rightoids actively pursue dominance in culture war shit, while the left is kind of ignoring it in relative terms.


i like lore armor buff woman :^)


none of this bullshit helps with organizing


We failed if people like this prefer to become martyr instead of working for a revolution.



the right cares a little more, but the real reason is that it's inherent to the dynamics of the "game" if you like - it's like asking why nations in a 4X game generally act like fascists.
the left has a weak spot in that for all it can posture as edgy, leftism is ultimately about human liberation - it's sappy and it's universalist. you might meme about eating your landlord, but deep down all you really want is for everyone to be happy. the right, on the other hand, is much more open to particularism: i only want myself to be happy, or my friends to be happy, or my race to be happy. this gives it much greater versatility when competing for attention on the internet. a leftist will never be able to cover as much ground on the culture war issue of the week because the leftist answer will always come back to "it's capitalism, these people aren't irredeemble, they're cogs in the capitalist machine" while the right can cover a lot more ground - if someone involved is an ethnic minority, hit them on that. if someone involved is a woman, bang. if they're jewish, ka-ching, moses isn't the only one getting manna from heaven anymore.

this is particularly helpful because the current cultural mode doesn't require you to believe in any of these things. you can enjoy your edgy anti-semitic jokes without "truly believing" for a moment that jews run the world. cultural transmission and evolution doesn't care for a moment whether you believe what you're saying, so long as you transmit it. leftism is generally burdened with people having to believe it - very few people pretend to be communists just for laughs, but a lot "pretend" to be fascists.

my explanation is quite poorly expressed, but i'm very confident. if it's unclear, work from these premises and see where you get:
1. culture, "memes", etc, evolve analogously to creatures. (that's what a meme originally was, the cultural version of a gene.)
2. because of the inherent dynamics of left and right wing belief, the right has an evolutionary advantage in spitting out as many variants as possible. the left must always contain a kernel of sincerity, while the right need-not. to a moderate degree, this is offset by the fact that people are fundamentally well-intentioned. (which is unfortunately ultimately how you get most liberal internet culture, good intentions without structural analysis…)
3. this does not mean right-wing culture is superior, it means it's more chaotic. it's like mould - it's remarkably evolutionarily successful, but you'd much rather be in a room with a kea parrot than with mould.


Terminally online moralist nonsense. Culture has nothing to do with communism as much as Zero Books writers and other idiots try to sell you their garbage. In fact, after the revolution most if not all the current culture is going away with capitalism too, just like all the other culture that died previously.

brotron I used to think so and want to thinks so. I've met way too many people who think that a conversation is passing you their phone to look at something in their tiktok feed. People want to spend every free second in the algorithm. Ban smartphones. Nothing more portable than a 2005 laptop may get online. Jihad.

I wouldn't be surprised. At the top of virtually every reactionary outfit in the us you'll find an FBI informer. If it wasn't Langley's hand directing operations at Stormfront, it was definitely aware of it.


>with everything being soaked in extreme irony
Is it, though?

Irony, at least in this context, means sarcastic parody. You make or say a thing that's purposefully stupid so as to make fun of existing things that are earnestly like that.

A lot of the early-mid 2010s stuff was ironic (early [s4s] comes to mind), but are we still really at that point?

When people post things like soyjaks, virgin vs chad, etc. they generally mean what they say. If a guy is drawn to look like an idiot, it's because the guy making the image wants you to know he thinks the people he's representing with it are idiots. That seems pretty earnest to me.


Why is the right so averse to acknowledging their own cringe?


The average person doomscrolls on Facebook, Instagram or Tiktok, they aren't doing "esoteric shitposting XD" on Twitter, Pisscord or imageboards.


>>Interact with liberals
If you don't interact with the proletariat to get them to organize against capital then what the fuck are you doing? Coping about how posting is totally "praxis"?


No you simply understand the dialectics of things. You notice the arthoe matrix, you notice the pillbased cringe/based dialectic and then you follow your instincts.

I frankly became someone who has no sympathy or even empathy with others in the conventional sense because of this. I simply do not relate to liberals in any shape or form because they do not yearn for power, they do not wish to become stronger. It is all idealism and I am materialistic in the true sense of the word. I understand the power of image, I understand the power of knowledge, I understand the power of one's own gut and muscle.

I will never understand the priest, the holy man. The one who fights for "Higher ideals" I am simply an animal. Both the "Right" and "Left" liberal does not exist in the same wavelength that I do. KArl Marx bragged about having carbuncles on his ass, while his contemporaries tried to ascribe to more "Noble" ideals, but we are all shit at the end.

I for one hope that they are trying to start an organization, because it will crash and burn in probably a similar fashion like the widely acclaimed speaker, writer, journalist, and political analyst Caleb Maupin's organization.


It is always the fans who are the main victims of modern rightoid grifts. I love it.


They can actually fill up the venue, Haz has basically a small cult, not many people but those that are his fans suck up to him so much that it almost makes you feel sick. I'm sure his fbi.gov cucks will show up and willingly pay.

I don't think Hinkle has loyal fans, he just has a lot of casual rightoid follower on Twitter, but not the type of groomed cult followers that would willing to pay 45 USD to hear something they probably already heard from them.

I doubt Infrared will ever get over 40k subscribers, they are stuck at 30k for over a year now. It's too eclectic, fringe and contrarian to have a mass appeal and Haz is a bad showman that comes over like a total asshole. But the paypigs that he did accumulate will probably feed him for the next five years or so.


I doubt it, it'll likely all just fade out with Haz and Hinkle. Caleb is such a sad case, how do you even fall down this much from grace like that? He was quite principled before the war in Ukraine started.

To answer the old schizo's question, pandering to the base. These guys know that their target audience likes the aesthetics of Christianity, so they inject those aesthetics into their content. It's such fucking brainrot, and a good argument against the cult of small business. These guys are mostly 'indie', but the pursuit of profit leads them to squirt out slop that's just as if not more substanceless than the tabloids of the "legacy media" they're claiming to replace.

As an aside, I like that term, mainstream alternative media. These guys like to think of themselves as these underground counterculture freedom fighters that exist outside of the mainstream, but by all objective measures, they *are* mainstream, and have been since the 90s. Remember, in his day, Rush Limbaugh was the most listened to guy on radio. The reason the ideas don't catch isn't because people aren't being exposed to them; it's because they're generally unpopular outside of the niche of paranoid baby boomers and contrarian highschoolers.


This isn't a new phenomenon, all the hippies from the 60s became neocons. If you rely on an eclectic, inconsequential world view, that shit happens.

What pisses me off about the freeze peach crowd is that, to them, "free speech" really means "freedom to say the things I think ought to be said". Elon Musk's X social network internet website application avaliable now on iOS and Android engages in a lot of censorship that goes way beyond the limitations on free speech imposed by the US constitution, because, again, he doesn't actually want free speech; he just likes saying he does.

I respect people who disagree with me, even if I greatly dislike them. But I have nothing but contempt for midwits like Musk that act on vague, half-baked non-principles based mostly in vibes as if they have an actual coherent ideology.

I wonder how would that graph look like with all the bots removed.
Also, I find it consistently funny how the anti-WEF schizos very accurately predict what capitalism wants, but they're too class unconscious to blame it on capitalism. Anyone have the image with a dude wearing a VR headset and eating bugs while living on the street?


idk i feel like /v/ in particular is up in the gills with actual unironic shills.


who would bother paying someone to post on /v/? mainstream advertising isn't that effective but surely much moreso than direct conversation with people who barely buy games anyway


I think it's about giving a game a sort of cool factor that might not be very warranted. Like say stellar blade which seems like a fairly whatever game that gets a lot of press due to it's culture war shit.


If I suspected the devs of Stellar Blade of having any kind of shill campaign, it would be a lot more effective to just pay Kotaku et al to pearl clutch over how oversexualised the game is, the reactionary furore will come organically from that point


I mean that is what they do, but it's a south korean dev company, they have no minimum wage laws iirc


I mean ok but South Koreans (especially that can speak English) are gonna want at least like a few dollars an hour to shill online, it just doesn't seem like an effective use of money.

Well, on the other hand though, I guess it's worth a try, if you just have one person with access to a botnet to spam a controversy about your game.


check out this thread and judge for yourself.


I mean TBH it seems like half the people in that thread (including OP possibly) are joking

If only Moot had just kept banning those stormfags and didn't do the idiotic thing of giving them their own containment board.


I do wonder about the immense stupidity of modern neo-nazis. Say what you will about Hitler, but he wasn't stupid, and there was a coherent internal logic in "spend all your money on guns" -> "attack all your neighbours" -> "be a UK style imperial hegemony with Eastern-Europe serving as colonies". On the other hand, contemporary neo-nazis have none of that, so where they to find any power I suspect they'll just end up catabolizing whatever unfortunate nation they take over.


Machine translations got really good btw. Especially the LLM ones


>The quality of the site dropped immensely when GamerGate happened
The fact that what blew it up was some high school level relationship drama is telling. Doritosgate was the actual story yet those retards went after a nothing nerd site, a nothing indie game and a nothing feminist reviewer and obsessed about it for years.
What is it about videogames that attracts that sort of people? It can't be just autism, right?


i poke my head in every 6 months or so and it's depressing how angry everyone is. not angry about thread topics but just relentlessly shitting on each other, no one really tries to have fun or make something new anymore


File: 1713751487729.png (164.88 KB, 960x1440, ClipboardImage.png)


if they gave a shit about video gaming journalism at all gamergate would have happened back in 2007-8, when jeff gerstmann got fired after writing a middling review for kane & lynch. the game publisher bitched to gamespot's marketing team that they spent all this money on ads for the site and they expected a good review


Well there's nowhere else that's as populated to anonymously talk about anime and video games and technology so I keep using it because of that. Plus some of the boards has pockets that aren't filled with alt righters, I visit them often and they don't have racists or bigots there.


I still call myself a gamer because I heavily identify with the label. I get why some people won't considering… what kind of people typically strongly identify themselves with that label act like. But I'm a gamer and I'm proud, because I refuse to let the far right have a monopoly on gamer culture and our rich and storied history as an art form. I am also in favor of keeping the terms "casual, core, hardcore" in the public consciousness in order to delineate different types of gamers, neither one superior or inferior to the other. Just like there's bookworm or film buff for those hobbies respectively. Maybe you may disagree with me on some subjects but we're all comrades at the end of the day above all else.


Communities of any entertainment tend to be shit due to lack of consequences and anonymity online. Gamers have nothing on pro-wrasslin fans when it comes to shitty behavior, whining about fake fighting is pathetic yet if you happen to piss off some of them off over having a different opinion, they'll find ways to dox you.


>things should just happen regardless of the actual circumstances


what i'm saying is there are no circumstances where /v/ would ever actually mobilize unless it involved blue-haired women cheating on their boyfriends


At least /vg/ has less problems with bigotry although not by much by my experience. 2017 really destroyed 4chan. If only I'd been in the website earlier on before that.


i'd say it's less them not being bigoted (Which they certainly are) it's just they don't feel the need to yap on about it so much


>I still call myself a gamer because I heavily identify with the label.
While I don't see a real issue with this it seems reductive to think of yourself as such. Maybe because it's such a new label it feels like it was created by marketing.
>Just like there's bookworm or film buff for those hobbies respectively.
Sure but we don't really say I'm a Hardcore Bookworm or I'm a Casual Film Buff. How invested people are in a medium comes out if you just ask people about what books or movies they like and why. If a self identified Film Buff says The Shawshank Redemption is the best movie ever made, that tells you something about the meaninglessness of the label.

>Gamers have nothing on pro-wrasslin fans when it comes to shitty behavior
I know nothing about this. What sort of shitty behavior?


>Sure but we don't really say I'm a Hardcore Bookworm or I'm a Casual Film Buff
lol i take it you dont use social media


the nonstop obsession with "gamers" is frankly pathetic especially when many of the people doing it also waste a lot of time playing video games themselves (see: hexbear)


Where does Glownonymous come from? Are you all the same person or do you all have the same name?

I wonder how many of those followers are actual people, as opposed to glowies and people that wish they were glowies.

The weirdest thing about gamergate was seeing in real time the kind of trolls that prided themselves on being amoral nihilists who'd post animals getting gored for teh lulz transforming into uptight reactionary moralfags. The end result, which we're still stuck with today, is this walking contradiction that acts like it's emotionally detached and doesn't care about anything constantly making a massive stink about everything.


>I know nothing about this. What sort of shitty behavior?
>fans stalking both male and female wrestlers
>fans sending death threats to wrestlers
>fans harassing wrestlers out in public when not in a wrestling event
>fans impersonating wrestlers online
>fans doxing other fans over disagreements
>fans that make neckbeards blush over having bad personal hygiene when they attend events
>fans that happen to be coomers that make weebs look like monks in comparison
>fans pretending to be credible journalists


At the end of the day any "fandom" will inevitably turn into this. The subject matter is irrelevant.


>I wonder how many of those followers are actual people, as opposed to glowies and people that wish they were glowies.
Sadly to many are real. I saw some space defending this other Nazi posting account defending him because he supposedly got banned for being pro-palestinian and it was full of BIPOC people. I think the Nazism is too subtle for some people who don't pay close enough attention, sneaky bastards.


They're donating that money to a Palestinian charity, right?



lol. I hope they are not serious and are saying it tongue in cheek as a joke.

>transforming into uptight reactionary moralfags
PUA, manosphere, Andrew Tate guys all did this too. What caused this? Did they all just need to move onto a new grift when their self-help bullshit didn't work?


I've tried playing VNs with machine translation and they're still mediocre, but I guess that counts as "better".


>whining about fake fighting is pathetic yet if you happen to piss off some of them off over having a different opinion, they'll find ways to dox you.
Man this is way too real. I watched an indian rock music video where they poked fun at pro wrestling for a throwaway line and the comment section have pissed off WWE fans just dropping slurs at them kek


Exactly. Gamergate is just gossiping and bitching about relationship dramas except 90% of the participants are gaming nerds and not girls in high school cliques. GG, and the subsequent lolcow/drama culture it spawned is literally a socially acceptable way for men to just gossip and bitch around without sounding like gay guys


>socially acceptable way for men to just gossip and bitch around without sounding like gay guys
Lolwut? All the men around me gossip almost as much as women.


>they poked fun at pro wrestling for a throwaway line and the comment section have pissed off WWE fans just dropping slurs at them kek
When I was in middle and high school, pro-wrestling fans were relentlessly made fun of and seen as poor white trash. They must still get triggered about it.
Maybe that's why they are just as perpetually offended as Gamers who were also made fun of as nerds.

Why would that be your takeaway? The whole "day in the life" format has been a trend for a while and this version is just totally boring and uneventful. Pretty sure he's doing a parody of the trend because nothing interesting happens and he does multiple things comically slowly to look extra boring. If there's some kind of message it's that "middle class" people don't have the crazy luxuries that usually get shown off in these types of videos and that it's unrealistic.

Maybe it does explain it. Reciting the rosary on twitter is still one of the biggest turnabouts I've ever seen. It makes me ask how he could be so desperate for money.


people become drug addicts because they lack impulse control and order in life. they lack these things because of a poor upbringing that taught them emotional dysregulation instead. protestantism is an environment that is comfortable because it assumes that you don't have self-control and are emotionally dysregulated and offers to handle that for you if you follow its rules. it's also frequently one of the factors that causes people to have those bad upbringings in the first place. by encouraging people to become broken in a specific way that they can manage, prots are able to sustain themselves. there's a reason so many of them have their "born again" or "come to jesus" moment later in life: because they were set up to fail outside that social system, to be dysfunctional anywhere else, and after suffering in those conditions for years, they crawl back to the abusive environment - the only place they're adapted to and that encourages and accepts their brokenness.

I don't think the christian faith is inherently contradictory to leftwing beliefs. There is this form of anti capitalist strain of religious theology called liberation theology. To m e, faith and belief always should come before politics, but I believe that many aspects of christianity align with leftwing politics. But either way, god's riches and glory is greater and will outlast any kind of political system and he is the king of all kings. It's short sighted to pidgeonhole christianity as leftwing or rightwing bigoted or not, because in the end to the practitioners of the religion it always comes first before everything else and is fundamental to the way they perceive the world. Either way, no system is perfect as the world is deep in sin due to the original sin, and all political systems from my perspectives are doomed to have failings in some aspects.


There is a lot of cheap grace to go around for everyone. Even degenerate streamers and youtubers would pivot to christianity when they have burnt out.

Something I've found amusing and more common is rightoids being utterly terrified of finding women online attractive these days just incase they turn out to be trans. Like despite their wojak edits depicting trans women as being balding and bearded with lipstick, whenever there's an obviously attractive woman online with perhaps unconventional interests, they immediately have to presume they're trans and insist on referring to them as he/him and highlight any physical features they find to be questionably feminine.

The day there are trans women who want to larp as tradwives, it's literally over for them. They'll be absolutely terrified of admitting they find any woman attractive if they can't immediately see their vagina and a birth certificate confirming gender from birth.


fear of catching the gay


>middle classes
note the plural
this isn't what people mean by "the middle class", which is just better-off wage workers. "middle class" a Weberian concept. with Marx someone can have low income, far lower than the average prole, and have little to no capital but still be petty bourgeois
the only real question is if the self-employed are petty bourgeois or not. this doesn't apply to the guy in the vid


Naturally with their understanding of sexuality being "monkey see, monkey do", but it's funny that their insistence that no trans woman "passes" gets undermined by their open paranoia when they see an attractive woman that isn't either doing porn and therefore showing what they've got or hasn't got an extensive posting history that proves they're conservative.



Take your meds Puritan


53 out of the thousands of named people in the Bible are confirmed real? This obviously proves that Jesus is the one and only God that exists in three coequal, coeternal, consubstantial divine persons: the Father who begets, the Son who is begotten, and the Holy Spirit who proceeds. Obviously.

>how he could be so desperate for money.
Youtube cut off his add revenue and he's facing legal trouble.


Most people in religious roles and legends are either real or based on a collection of real people. It's the powers ascribed to them that are suspect. For example, i believe that the Prophet Elijah was based on a real person. I did not believe he raise a widow's dead son


Same with the Prophet of Islam, Jesus Christ, Buddha, etc. These people historically exist, and they almost definitely did not do all the crazy shit ascribed to them by their followers like cracking the moon, cursing a tree to death or converting a serial killer on the spot


The "Prophet Own"
<From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys came out of the town and jeered at him. “Get out of here, baldy!” they said. “Get out of here, baldy!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.
2 Kings 2:23-24, NIV


Material conditions only *condition* what is possible, in that they provide the stock of which the future is made; they do not fully determine it. We can do with it whatever it is our materially-based minds will let us come up with.
Nothing prevents the neo-Weberian notion of social regimentation from existing as a cultural game that is not tightly bound to one's economic position, but is nonetheless necessary for systemic reproduction, e.g. false consciousness of competition and other Smithian mythology makes the bourgeois order seem just and natural.

Political power reduces to the capacity to protect one's lies from questioning. Accordingly, heroic myths devote a lot of effort to making their heroes seem not merely to conquer, but to transcend humanity and nature.


>Nothing prevents the neo-Weberian notion of social regimentation from existing as a cultural game that is not tightly bound to one's economic position, but is nonetheless necessary for systemic reproduction, e.g. false consciousness of competition and other Smithian mythology makes the bourgeois order seem just and natural.
I don't disagree with this. indeed we should expect higher-wage earners to be less sympathetic to socialism/communism since they have a rather good lot in life in the present system. that doesn't make them a different class though. a more proper term is strata


? Puritans are how you get drug addicts. They deliberately don't teach you important coping and self-control skills, which causes people to seek out things like drugs and to go into self-destructive sprials using them.


Trying to flex with how deranged your sexual fantasies are is so funny.


tbh calling it "safe" implies they think you should be flirting with jail or something

What exactly is your "materialist" explanation of addiction?

Schizophrenia has been utterly hijacked by right-wing meme psychosis. Thankfully it is starting to resist some of it's power but there are still more right schizos than left ones.

The reason why I keep bringing up the schizoforce is because it is the opposite of autism. There is no such thing as someone who can combine the two forces, and if they did they would have more power than a Kwisatz Haderach. Which is what Terry Davis might've been able to achieve. Most Schizphrenics have below 100 autism score however and are easily fooled. Autists however are damn near impervious to propaganda because psyops have not been able to mindfuck them yet. The two combined? An unstoppable force of memes.


Sounds like this is a job for me, actually


>Kwisatz Haderach


>The guy who started sweet baby inc is a fat brazilian who depicts himself as a chad


Being a schizoposter in general is bullshit. It just throws shit at the wall until the whole place stinks.


Im a diagnosed schizo, i had a psychotic break down around 2017 and ended up in the psych ward twice. being a schizo wasnt fun or exciting, it was scary, madness is the scariest thing on the planet. now i have to visit a psych once a month, its annoying. to tell you the truth i think the psychosis was transient and a one time thing, buy you try explaining how you arent crazy to people and they just ignore you.

By the way the best left wing schizo was phillip k dick, he hated facism and created the theory of the black iron prison

>After his revelation, or theophany, Horselover Fat/Philip K. Dick comes to the realization that the reality we live in is false, and that we live in something called the Black Iron Prison. According to Dick, the Prison is a system of social control that obscures the true nature of reality


Dick wrote about his addiction to Amphetamines and psychosis better than anyone else has attempted this subject IMHO.


What do you think instigated your one-time psychosis?


Bernie is a zionist cuck so I really don't care whether he gets smeared or not.

i was very deeply into the occult and kept seeing patterns that involved the sun and the moon, its a long story that involves the devil, david bowie dying, gang stalkers, astral sex with zeus, and general parnoia

The rusted chains of prison moons
Are shattered by the sun
I walk a road horizons change
The tournament's begun
The purple piper plays his tune
The choir softly sing
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue
For the court of the crimson king


Just to make sure you're not someone I know, did you also get obsessed with Nixon and GHWB?




no, my psychosis mostly revolved around spiritual things like the devil, greek gods, angels called the watchers. At one point i tried mediating in a closet in order to acheive theosis


Sorry, libshit. I don't care about your favourite child killer politician


one of my high school friends developed schizophrenia right after high school and it was really sad (and freaky) witnessing the early stages. he was at the point where i think he knew what we was saying was insane so he'd talk in broken sentences with wide eyes being as vague as possible about gangstalkers out to get him (maybe he was scared they were listening in? idk). a year later he was on social media writing in all caps about CIA fighter jets chasing him and begging kim jong il to shoot them down, eventually he got medicated tho

objectively correct take. trans friends on leftypol.org are just looking for a surrogate father figure and have found one in sanders. that's why they defend him.

Some academics wrote a paper about tankies. Except not anyone here, because it's about tankies on Reddit. You don't post on Reddit, do you?

>Tankies prioritize discussions of state-level political events over social issues … This is further supported by their lower RTPRs for social issues, e.g., police, climate change, healthcare, housing, gun control, unions, and taxes compared to other far-left communities … The results of our analysis reveal that the most popular named entities mentioned by tankies are related to China, the United States, the USSR, Russia, Ukraine, and Nazis. Additionally, we find that tankies mention China at a higher rate and Stalin nearly twice as often as Lenin, compared to other far-left communities. Our findings demonstrate that the preference for China and Stalinism is a defining characteristic of tankies. Furthermore, our analysis reveals that Ukraine is among the most popular named entities of the tankies community, and not among the most popular of the other communities. This suggests that the topic of Russia-Ukraine relations is more relevant or important to tankies, or that this community’s members engage in more discussion on this topic than those of other far-left communities.


>For the IDENTITY_ATTACK model, the most frequently mentioned named entities are typically religious or ethnic groups. Tankies appear to primarily target Muslims and Jews, with 41.80% and 34.03% of the posts mentioning these groups having high IDENTITY_ATTACK scores; the highest proportion of high IDENTITY_ATTACK scores for Muslims and Jews of any far-left community we analyze. Furthermore, we observe that tankies attack the identities of Asians, Arabs, Hindus, Mexicans, Africans, and Whites in more than 20% posts mentioning these identities […] Our analysis shows that tankies have the highest proportion of high scores for IDENTITY_ATTACK and THREAT among far-left communities, and they have the second highest proportion of high scores for TOXICITY, SEVERE_TOXICITY, PROFANITY, and INSULT, behind r/alltheleft.


>In this paper, we presented a data-driven analysis of the left-wing extremist community known as “tankies.” Although they have existed since the 1950s, when they supported hardline Soviet actions, more recently, tankies’ ideology has shifted to support so called “actually existing socialist countries,” including China, Russia, and North Korea. To better understand tankies, we collected over 1.3M posts from 53K authors across six subreddits. Among other things, we find that tankies are a clearly defined community positioned at the periphery of the larger far-left on Reddit. We also find that tankies show significant differences with respect to what and who they talk about. For example, tankies have consistent vocabulary misalignments and are more toxic than other far-left groups. Unlike other left-wing communities, tankies also talk much more about state-level political events as opposed to social issues. We further find that tankies responded to a deplatforming event by migrating a decentralized platform, resulting in a net increase in toxicity within the community



>using "Stalinist" unironically


>Autists however are damn near impervious to propaganda
Total Meme. Part of the condition is that they will focus on small details but ignore the larger picture so they just don't get what the "propaganda" is trying to do.
Also, if you ever listen to an autistic talk about some hobby you know about, you'll quickly notice they'll swallow random marketing crap as Absolute Truth. Good luck trying to convince them otherwise.


>Even tradcath reddit zoomers are tired of shit getting called woke


Stalinists in the 1930s would disagree with you, rofl.


Yep it's a retarded 4chan thing where they first self-diagnose with autism and then believe this gives them superpowers. Fully unironic autism mom behavior but with themselves.
I don't think anyone parroting this has ever talked to autists in a STEM career, for example.


>Furthermore, we observe that tankies attack the identities of Asians, Arabs, Hindus, Mexicans, Africans, and Whites in more than 20% posts mentioning these identities
muh sacred identities
Skimmed through the paper but didn't see how they defined these terms.


actual zombie


decided to look up how gazi kodzo's doing and one article mentions them being trans now

one of the faces of the attempt at a new chilean constitution who was primarily known for wanting water to be nationalized is now openly calling for the return of the death penalty lmfao. 'leftist' moment


Did you write this you fascist freak lol


Do you think Charlie/MoistCritikal is a pedophile?


other than the high baseline probability due to being a youtuber, no not really


What's wrong with the death penalty?


doesnt make sense from either a liberal or marxist pov


I disagree on the second although agree with the first.
The first goes without saying.
Elaborate on the second plox?


What about Markiplier


No means can be excluded a priori - they have to be evaluated in terms of their usefulness for achieving the desired end. You admit this when you rule out forced labour etc. on grounds of utility rather than principle.

Communists don’t rule out genocide because of moral considerations, we rule it out because communism is a working class movement and wiping out an entire ethnicity - encompassing workers as well as capitalists - is completely inimical to the success of that movement. The same can’t be said of forced labour and mass killings, because means of compulsion such as these will be required to defeat the bourgeoisie - which is sure to violently resist any revolution - and end capitalist relations.

For example, in 1935 a law was ratified that allowed the death penalty to be applied for children as young as 12 years for stealing. This reflects the bourgeois nature of Soviet law. :)



>Punishment in general has been defended as a means either of ameliorating or of intimidating. Now what right have you to punish me for the amelioration or intimidation of others? And besides there is history — there is such a thing as statistics - which prove with the most complete evidence that since Cain the world has been neither intimidated nor ameliorated by punishment. Quite the contrary. From the point of view of abstract right, there is only one theory of punishment which recognizes human dignity in the abstract, and that is the theory of Kant, especially in the more rigid formula given to it by Hegel. Hegel says: “Punishment is the right of the criminal. It is an act of his own will. The violation of right has been proclaimed by the criminal as his own right. His crime is the negation of right. Punishment is the negation of this negation, and consequently an affirmation of right, solicited and forced upon the criminal by himself.”
>There is no doubt something specious in this formula, inasmuch as Hegel, instead of looking upon the criminal as the mere object, the slave of justice, elevates him to the position of a free and self-determined being. Looking, however, more closely into the matter, we discover that German idealism here, as in most other instances, has but given a transcendental sanction to the rules of existing society. Is it not a delusion to substitute for the individual with his real motives, with multifarious social circumstances pressing upon him, the abstraction of “free will” — one among the many qualities of man for man himself? … Is there not a necessity for deeply reflecting upon an alteration of the system that breeds these crimes, instead of glorifying the hangman who executes a lot of criminals to make room only for the supply of new ones?
ill let you guess who wrote this


no but like every other youtuber it wouldn't surprise me, they all have easy access to young devoted fans


I'd like to return to the substance of your argument later, but to begin with I fail to see how your argument makes the death penalty for the bourgeoisie etc illicit.


Death penalty implies the national bourgeois keep existing under your DotP which would make it not a DotP in the first place. Killing the bourgeois during a revolution, or killing foreign bourgeois in retaliation as your DotP works with other DotPs to expand the movement and achieve communism, has nothing to do with death penalty at all. It only makes sense strictly under non-socialism.


My favorite thing is when people get surprised that a youtubers a creep as if its not even more surprising when it turns out one isn't.

Modern online discourse for old games is pretty much all zoomers who never played the game but watched the spergiest video essay dorks in existence waffling endless horseshit about it (20x longer than 100%ing a game would take) discussing their personal hallucinated version of the game with each other.


People watching vids about media instead of watching/playing it, is a really sad phenomenon.


New X meme supports Pedophilia and fantasizes about "Child Girlfriends"

The new X meme has multiple variations, users created multiple versions and spread them fantasizing about dating a very young girl what do you think leftypol?


the way that cunts can watch a lie be formed in real time and still believe it through it's sheer utility is the axis on which the based cringe dialectic turns.



Instead of buying a game for $70 playing 20hrs and not caring for it, you could have watched a 20min review and saved yourself the trouble.
Some vids also go into the story behind the media and it's creation and that can be interesting in itself.

You can also rent them from 7-11 and then beat them in a weekend. Hell now everyone is doing that subscription service thing.


>you need to pay for games to play them


t. boomer


Pirating, renting or buying you still need to invest time to play. Reviews give you a birds eye view of game letting you get a better idea if it meets your interests.
Game reviewers are guinea pigs. They have to play through shitty games and you just play what you want. If you play randomly you are the guinea pig. There are at least 93,880 video games on traditional platforms, not including Steam, that's at least 26,000.
So you need some way to cut through all that to find what you want without playing all of them or picking randomly. Even using genre categorization it still a massive amount of time investment because of shear amount out there.

The above applies to movies, tv, and books. More exists than you could consume in your entire life even if you did nothing else.


Sorry but the game industry is utterly destroyed these days and yet reviewers still manage to rate games positively, so either the bar is so low these days that reviews are irrelevant or they're accepting payola from publishers or they know positive reviews get clicks and likes while criticisms get their staff threatened.

While reading a review is short, I'd still consider that time more wasted than playing a couple of hours of an indie game that looked cool even if I eventually come to the conclusion it wasn't gonna be a favourite.


I obviously wasn't talking about reviews retard.
