Demolishun1063527dAs an American I am baffled by the shit people believe from the mainstream media. Almost every outlet has lied about covid, the economy, the effects of lockdowns, etc. Or worse, they downplay serious issues. They mix in one tiny bit of truth to tell a much bigger lie. They also refuse to cover the huge backlash the world is about to have on globalism. People are waking up in every corner of the globe.
The terminology war is not about protecting anyone. It is about silencing all speech not from "legit" sources. The goal of silencing other views is to silence free speech in general. In 2021, we, as humans, need to push back on this like crazy.
Voxera892127dRe: banks. I do hope your bank joins the new century :)
I almost never ever visit the bank, not even to increase the mortgage of the house :)
The only time the last 2 years has been when getting a new bankid which is a digital id using certificats.
And the only reason I had to go to the bank is because I as misplaced the code card needed to do it all online.
In total the last 10 years its mostly been when doing things for the kids that do not have such a digital id yet and its 2-3 time a year at most.
And I even live within walking distance from the bank, about 10-15 minutes.
Condor3476127d@SortOfTested Wow, the guy in that video was horrible... Really deserved that cup in his face to be honest. I don't get why these people are so set on races. You get assholes in just about every culture (like that guy), yet so many nice people in other cultures if only you start talking to them.
Frederick298427d@Condor "Belgium being one of the most inclusive countries in the fucking world, I still got called a racist".
Kinda same from my own country, its generally pretty inclusive to the point of if you want to be part of the society, you are welcomed in pretty easy and due to how our system is all have equal opportunity for education etc.
But i still find people, even people on this platform. Who think being born in scandinavia equals being a nationalist & white supremacy.
JustThat221926d@SortOfTested 1. That *^ was the exception, not the rule (Well, until Trump)
2. Violence is not the answer. If it is, the question was probably misunderstood.
3. Neither is self-censorship because you may offend someone. There are people who have the capacity to be offended by just about anything such as saying, "Good morning!"
America: You can't really fix ANY problems when half the population of your country isn't participating in democracy in good faith.
@Demolishun Leadership acknowledging these attacks would be a start.
As Putin was making completely unanswered nuclear threats throughout the last few years, I often ranted to the like 3 people who will listen to me that it was extremely dangerous to let even those threats go unanswered.
Now full scale cyber attacks, that the pentagon labelled "Acts of War" in 2011 are about the 4th biggest story of the week and are not mentioned by the executive branch in any way, and are barely addressed by congress.
Meanwhile, remember the climate crisis? Infrastructure crisis? Manufacturing crisis? Offshoring crisis?
Because, somehow throwing a bunch of kids in cages didn't bring back manufacturing jobs... whod've thunk it...
Oh yeah, and your dad and uncles political party tried to take your vote away last Saturday, but this Saturday you need to feed them Ham politely while you all praise Jesus.
@HiFiWiFiSciFi That is because a significant part of the leadership is at war with the country. This is first a domestic threat, and secondarily a foreign threat. The domestics are working with foreign entities. That is why CCP operatives were ordered to leave the country. The domestics we will have to deal with ourselves. You can pick just about any government entity and you will find it has been compromised. Governors, senators, house reps, judicial, CIA, FBI, DHS, possibly the vice president have all been implicated. The people involved have been betraying the country since at least the Gulf War and possibly all the way back to before JFK. For instance, a Bush relative was almost executed for treason some 50 or 60 years ago. For some reason they were pardoned. Also, this is not about party. It just happens that one party and many powerful people in another party have been working to betray the USA with the help of the CCP. Average Joe has no clue.
On the left: Eric Swallwell had a spy as a donor like 10 years ago.
On the right: The two biggest cyber attacks in US history are perpetrated and the enemies word is believed over US Intel if the attacks are acknowledged at all. Not to mention Intel leaked from the Oval Office to Russia about Israeli covert ops, not to mention the dozen verbal handjobs to Putin, or bowing to NK generals, unanswered nuclear threats, unanswered dictation of US European troop movements, full capitulation to Putin in Syria, obvious tearing down of NATO alliances, obvious bowing to every crackpot despot on the planet, capitulation on East Asian trade, arming Saudis, heading every cabinet with people opposed to their cabinets mission, pardoning Blackwater murderers so Betsy Devoses brother can avoid prosecution, oh and as a Michigander they literally tried 60 times to nullify my right to vote... I could literally go on all day.
You: these things are equal.
@JustThat oh I know they “think” they’re correct.
But they’re simply not.
A Republican from Texas, sues the Republican Vice President, over the failed election of the Republican President. The case is then heard and thrown out by a Republican judge appointed by that very same Republican President.
So the conclusion of “how could Democrats do this” isn’t just wrong it’s fucking retarded and after four years I’m fucking done pretending dumb as fuck conspiracy theories have equal weight to objective reality.
The PROBLEM is that these people are allowed to continue further from reality to the point they are now plotting assassination against my elected officials and STILL the media insist they present both sides as equal.
Here’s an average joe and here’s a retarded methed out chimp... let’s hear what they both have to say and weigh the merits.
