That Rachel Dolezal actually seems to be able to pull off looking "black" (atleast in comparison to other people that are supposedly black). I personally don't understand what the big deal is if were living in a world where people can just declare them selves to be other genders or 2wolf spirits and what not. Are they jealous that she can pass or what?

If a black person not behaving like a hoodlum is "acting white" what the hell determines blackness?
The modern political definition of black is 'behaving in a way that is useful to democrats.'

Oh update on the Army TA.
It was reinstated.
Pissed off enough people
'TA?' Could you clarify?

No account on AH. :(
Reading through it now, it seems to be a very 'liberal' view of a Second American Civil War. With the Republican side slipping into white nationalism for the most part. Although it doesn't show the Federals as saints either- President Kamala does a good job of channeling Stalin and Assad of all people.

All and all, it's quite a mess of a story. Plausible in some parts, downright unlikely and fantastical in others. At least, in my own opinion.

Then again, I'm hardly an expert on modern political politics and the military, so I could be wrong.

Philly Public Schools Teach Kindergarteners About BLM and George Floyd, Call U.S. ‘Pyramid Of Hate’
Leaked documents from the Philadelphia public school system shows Philadelphia’s Office of School Climate and Culture has introduced that teaches children from kindergarten through second grade about George Floyd and Black Lives Matter, and warns about a “pyramid of hate” that starts with racial stereotyping and jokes and ends in “genocide.”
Documents obtained by reporter Christopher Rufo show that teachers are encouraged to ask the four-year-old children if they have heard of Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, and asks them to “share their feelings” about the Chauvin trial verdict.
It doesn't matter if your side does not procreate, if it gets to brainwash the children of those who do.

...Unless there's a drastic change soon, the US is fucked.
I've seen a lot of conservatives and Republicans say "oh, it's just the pendulum swinging to favour one side; like in the past, it'll swing back to us in a decade or so". Normally, yes. But the Other Side now is trying to systemically dismantle the dynamic itself responsible for this swinging, from cultural, to education, to society, to police and even military. It'll never swing back if they succeed.

At this point, I think you guys need a coup, and an empty ditch in the middle of nowhere that gets filled in the middle of the night.

Rome, before it finally fell in the West, had these sort of crises all the time over its history, and they were typically resolved after each jumped up Emperor or politician got the ancient equivalent to a 9mm in the back of their heads. If they hadn't, Rome would have fallen centuries before it finally hit its expiration date.

I think America is at one such crossroad.

I pray to the Lord that it won’t come to that. But I suppose that’s down to His plan, if my neophyte’s grasp on theology is right.

....you and I have some very different definitions of the word ‘fine’.

Unless you mean another foreign entanglement by the USA. Which is the second-to-last thing we need now.

Not religious personally, but all I'm seeing at the moment is that America is going to go in one direction or another. In the last ten years, the Left has, beyond healing or repair, poisoned Western society.

If it goes fully Left, where the insanity over the last ten years becomes the norm, America is fucked; if a civil war kicks up, I still don't think there'd be any winners after the dust settles.

On the one hand, if the Left won in a hypothetical civil war, America is fucked. Simple. What'd be left would be Idiocracy without the humour, where being White or straight/CIS means you'll probably be thrown in a "re-education" gulag or have a social stigma attached to you. A Leftist shithole.

If the Right won, I can see rights and liberties that we take for granted now as part of everyday life and have been in the last forty/fifty years or so take a massive step back. Society wouldn't "return to normal" as society were in the last twenty years or so, as society itself would be irreparably altered/changed by the aftermath. That'd include homophobia, sexism, racism, et cetera rising again, which no-one wants.

I'd say things are going to be "interesting" in the Chinese sense of the word, but that doesn't have enough negative connotations, too.

There is no such thing as homophobia.
So are you saying that "gay panic" murders, few and far between as they are, or all-but-publically disowning relatives found dead in the arson of a gay bar doesn't qualify as homophobia? Or is it that you think one cannot be outright bigoted toward homosexuals in the first place?

If you think the latter because it's a delusion, would you say one cannot be ablest towards autistic people, or paranoid schizophrenics?

I am saying a war with help us with unity, especially if we get attacked.
Me and an NCO were joking.
The video that Iran used for propaganda? We made the joke that if they really did fuck with our ships, we would go ww2 on thier asses.

It takes a carrier battle ship to keep the straits open, it only takes a single battle ship to effectively close them.




If Iran starts a war we can easily shut down their ability to sell oil on the international market. Their Saudi rivals would be hurt but they still have the gulf of aden as a back up option, and the Somalis can more easily be put down if they try to mess with that trade.

So pissing off a united states that is now functionally energy independent and doesnt give a fuck about stable oil prices in the outside world is not a good idea.

Not just with Iran.
China or Russia are both big boys on our lists.
Iran is just one mistake away from being wiped off the map

I don't think you understand how deep the divide goes. A war now is not going to unify us any more than the Vietnam or Korean wars did.

We are not going to war with China; not as long as the establishment has anything to say about it. As for Russia; let's just say I'd find it very difficult to root against them.

China is eyeing Taiwan more and more.
We will defend Taiwan.

You won't have a choice in the matter; your commander-in-chief gets to make that decision, and Biden (or rather, his handlers) is the closest thing our government has to one right now.
And yet he still allowed the US to give arms to Taiwan.

Technically it's not "phobia" because it's not an irrational fear --like jumping out of a moving car just because you see a spider on the dashboard-- but such things are typically motivated by irrational hatred. But yeah, I agree with you. It is bigotry.
