Imagine a whole country run on that basis - it would collapse as everyone took everyone’s stuff and nobody would make anything, either because there was no point when it is easier to steal or because they’re expending too much energy defending from looters. That’s kinda how you get a 3rd world country.

Now Killer Mike has "always been a coon". Dogge really must hate black people.
Damn yeah he’s always super quick on that slur. Must be nice to have a racial slur that flies under the radar you can just fling at every black persons who disagrees with you and doesn’t attract the ire of your white ally keepers

Eh, these kids wont vote come November that's obvious. All this rioting and projection is doing is solidifying the other side.
Yes once they realise their only choice is Joe “Strom Thurmond is One Of My Closest Friends” Biden I want to see how these faux revolutionaries internalise that

it’s hard to imagine they will come out for the man who wrote the 1996 crime bill lol

Starting to understand the real world problems with unions today......imagine when they get told their favourite game is on hold indefinitely until new air con units are installed, or the dispute about the 3% overtime bonus is settled.

Lol the dude with the rich parents who bought him a wife wants to tell you have revolutions actually work. I wonder if he would support looting the wealth of his family?

messofanego said:
Sure is a lot of concern trolling for corporations, tone policing going on in this thread about how to protest, and shaming forms of protest you disagree with, without taking the full context of what's going on and has been happening for centuries. But thankfully folks here are also criticising these disingenuous people. Not even someone who's read the article or Baldwin and MLK Jr quotes and saying even if they disagree with the looting they totally understand why it happens and the political purpose of it. If looting and destruction didn't happen, we wouldn't have the civil rights we have now. Revolution wasn't created by peacefully protesting at specific spots that are easily ignored by the powers that be.

Also apparently the little kids in riot gear are officially the Hitler youth


Also it really seems like these people haven't watched any of the live streams, there was mostly just looting and black people trying to incite violence on them by getting in cops faces and yelling hit me and other shit. Again, there seems to be only the narrative they want to push and nothing to do with facts.

Thats why they are rioting. They know that the only choice to beat Trump is rapist racist Biden. So they want to use violence for their so called revolution.

They did it to themselves by allowing Dems to pass over the diverse candidates and voted for Joe to be their man.

the ironic thing is, if they stopped buying/promoting crap from Marvel, Disney, Pixar, Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, etc. all the entertainment products they purchase, it would damage corporations a million times more than any weekend looting of a half dozen stores.

yet the latter is openly celebrated while the former is not even a consideration. in fact if you talk "bad" about a product or company, it is more likely they will defend the corporation against you. chances are you will be silenced for having an incorrect opinion on a corporate product.

so no, that would take real change, real personal day to day commitment. which they, time and time again, have proven they don't want to take on. changing the world is not their responsibility, they want to let "the billionaires" do it. taking personal action would mean they would have to let go of their precious Spider-Man and Star Wars. no, they would rather continue feeding the consumer machine. imo the reason Era is so gun ho and anti-capitalist in some places is because the site is in reality a massive shrine to consumer culture. they are painfully aware of this so they have to lash out and virtue signal to try and convince people (themselves) otherwise. it's all born of an ideological insecurity.

in a big way, looting is just another method of consuming. you are still taking their product. still demonstrating consumer demand. it doesn't matter if they miss out on a few hundred dollars, the company at the top will be able to write it off as an insurance loss and the store will just order more. congrats on feeding the system while you pretend to fight it

The Minneapolis thing is wild, I'm not from over there but it seems to be the worst riots since the LA riots after Rodney King?

It's sad that George Floyd has lost his life, it's tragic how he was killed, it's undefendable really and the right to protest it is a given, but people are taking shit way too far burning places down and looting.

This is going to be controversial I guess, but poor people (White, black or latin) can't scream about being treat like shit by the police, when they've ran amok, setting shit on fire, stealing loads of shit and acting like fucking animals. But I guess dumb fucks don't see it like that.

For what I know, at least the officer has already been arrested and charged with murder (don't get 3rd degree etc etc), which didn't happen with Eric Garner and Michael Brown (yes, I know the Michael Brown case is a different kettle of fish, what with evidence supporting the copper and the whole "hands up, don't shoot" thing being aload of shit), so it's progress in a way.

It just goes to show that the mob and Reeee don't give 2 flying fucks about justice for him being killed, they're just in it for the shits and giggs and just want to incite unrest.


Edit - Shouldn't Nept be out there, rallying the troops, standing up to the man and all whites, setting an example to her forum dwellers? And blaming just the white man when her car with a ridiculously overinflated loan amount goes up in flames. Then revising herstory (geddit) to say it was an evil white man that forced her step daddy to rip her off.

Dogge still calling women in the military children

They'll make sure they do. And if not, they'll just recruit more child soldiers.
I guess he's at least he's consistently a piece of shit.

Normally people say trophy wife and discussing how she married some rich old/ugly fuck. Only ERA would create the phrase Trophy Kids, I wonder why? 🤔 Some serious paedophiles on that site. It's very essescoalou as paedo Ninja Scooter would say.

I heard Nepenthe initially got the moderator spot because management thought she was a child because she is 3ft 6ins and they tried to groom her. It's been awkward since they found out she was only a midget.

The idea of Nepthene out doing capoeira in front of a load of armed police whilst in a fursuit is hilarious.

And her favourite animal is a dog, yet they're all bark no bite.

I can imagine the Police just saying "kid, just go home to mom, this is for grown ups".

It's amazing how they're screaming for people to be murdered but when their side gets hurt they're incensed that they would do such a thing. Like yeah guys, you throwing shit at cars and trying to break into them will likely get you run over. Play stupid games and win stupid prizes, you're trying to injure and set shit on fire. No one in their right mind is going to stand there and get killed because you're mentally unstable.

Last I checked I supported murder charges for the officers who killed George Floyd, and called for police reform. I'm in favor of peaceful protests, just not the looting and destruction, especially considering all the small businesses caught in the crossfire.

They sure are fond of inventing their own reality over there.

Definitely. I think anyone within reason knows and supports the sentiment. After all, looting and literal chaos is not going to solve anything.

If the nazi website is the one that isn't advocating for the pointless distruction of a community, then what does that make them?

The 'protests' are a spectacular own goal.

Most of the posts here and in the thread on the current situation have been very level headed and anything extreme is being called out.

You bunch of fascists.

As always they are using a double logic.

Looting attacks the system, while simultaneously affirming the values of that system.

A TV, for example, is not an intrinsically valuable object. It only has value in a system that supports that invention with shows and products, as well as a technical infrastructure which allows it to work. Television alters a culture’s attitude toward time. By stealing a television, you are implicitly admitting that you value it, and by extension, the culture that gives it value, even though your stated goal is to attack the system. A more consistent approach would be just to burn it all, and take only what feeds you and keep you warm.

Cheesecake falls into this category as well, since it is the product of a decadent leisure society.

I love it when the hate-lurkers out themselves. They always claim the same thing, "I looked once", "I accidentally clicked a link there" or variations on that theme. They are here all the time looking for validation, just like the mods are always in this Resetera topic. Dumbfucks not realizing they all use the same excuse.

I think they mean you guys:



Too funny. I've never seen so many people on a forum think they have all the answers, while also publicly being deliberately stupid just to score a point. Imagine having so few principles you pretend to have the IQ and intepretation of a teabag all so you can cackle over a cauldron with the other witches. Of course, the more alarming scenario is that they genuinely don't know this

This is clearly that abusive partner telling his girlfriend constantly that no one likes her and she is lucky that this fuck is putting up with her shit. You want to leave, who the fuck will take you in? It was tough trying to restart on a new board, do you want to go through that again?
Like it's very easy to go to a different site and check it for yourself but if dumbfucks keep reinforcing it without any discourse then why would you check?

Also congrats to Evilore for being granted the title of 'Big Boi'.

Of the two sites there is only one calling minorities awful slurs with no consequences. That same site also advocating for the destruction of stuff, and attacking people. Only if they don't have to do it, I mean it sounds too much like work, KSweeley is worried it might affect his fraudulent disability claims if they found out he works.

The ways they are going about justifying things it won't be long before we hear justifications like
did you know that Nazi and Neogaf start with the same letter
or
Neogaf was named after Neo-Nazis as they both start with Neo. Concrete proof that GAF are Nazis and ERA are the good guys, now let's tear down every successful black person by using racist slurs. It's sad when this paragraph isn't even parody anymore. 🙄 some good people on ERA but have been silenced by the lunatics.

Well said. I must admit, of the two forums Resetera is the only one where I've seen open use of what I thought was horrifically racist language directed towards Kanye West.

The same with Kevin Hart, Dave Chapelle and the voice actor for Miles Morales and claiming anyone can wear the mask (it was actually 'anyone can were the mask' and surprisingly it wasn't Slayven). I don't know who the fuck the voice actor is. I'm surprised they haven't cancelled Donald Glover for the same insane logic as his character in Spider-Man Homecoming is related to Miles Morales.

Rather than bonding together and supporting each other, they are the first to cut the legs from any successful black person. I wouldn't be surprised if Ice Cube, writer of Fuck the Police is accused of not being black enough as he hasn't highlighted police brutality enough.

Also, unrelated but congrats to ERA on not giving Joe Rogan a platform. Spotify are only paying him a cool $100 million and not $100,000,000.04 with ERA support. Good job lads (apologies for assuming your 57 varieties of gender)

Lockdown boredom and free time are the motivators for this.
