I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Yeah, but this guy in particular is far-right for the US. I could go into it, but that's not the right thread.

It does stress how stretched the ideological fabric behind such words has become, however. In the Dresden Files, magical curse rituals are published far and wide because the more often they are used the less force they have, until they become meaningless.

Curses such as 'fascist' have lost much of their power because they're leveled against nearly anyone. The same is true of 'racist' and 'homophobe' and 'misogynist'. From personal experience, I was called racist many times circa 2016. Not because I condemned anyone or judged according to colour or race, but because I voted out of the European Union.

Which is unfortunate, because the term 'racist' means little to me now. I don't trust it without utilising independent research.

We had our own here, bourgeois.

We got yelled "Bourgeoisies!!!!" when protested, on foot, against the goverment, from a guy on one of the biggest, fanciest pickup trucks I have ever seen.

It was grounded into a mere slur against anyone not agreeing with the ruling mafia. Oh also fascist of course, even when they are like a dictionary example of fascism.

I apparently woke up on my hyper-curious side today. So I embarked on an epic journey to the depths of Turkish Web. I saw cringy memes, clickbaity videos, and alot of other stupid stuff.

But let me be honest, this journey wasn't random. Before all my lazy spelunking, I was of course looking at what American Televangelist crowd was up to, like any self-respecting heathen. After I snarked for about 15 minutes, I began to wonder if there were other, more relatable things to snark.

So I found my way to my destination. It did not dissappoint. It is like what you Muricans have around there, but even bolder in its willfull ignorance and strawmanning. Oh, and there was Islamic rapping, too. In the flavor of Christian rock or Jesus pop. The music was decent, though. A for the effort.

I couldn't help but imagine the following scenario;

And there stood Magmacube, with a shit-eating grin, among the crowd of the unassuming faithful. Spoken to, yet will never be seen.

"lol", said Magmacube. "lmao".

LW used to post clips of an Islamic TV station or news show, the name of which escapes me, being unapologetically anti-Semitic and misogynistic and homophobic, and probably other awful things too.

But yeah, hatred doesnít change much regardless who expresses it.

You do have to realize that in the muslim world, throwing a shoe at someone is THE worst possible insult and offense thinkable.
Like, if we think in the western world that raping and killing someone's family is bad, throwing a shoe is culturally worse in the muslim world.

While I can understand and Messi or whoever is in charge migth have looked into it a bit better is also a two way avenue. Its not the fucking 14th century anymore, they have internet and can look into cultural differences too, and they can also understand that insulting was the least of the intentions there.

A celebrity and his PR team not bothering to research your culture is a bit insulting too. Like, think of it this way, it's like if you have this guy who has been hanging out at your house for like a couple weeks, and he says that he's really enjoying his time hanging out with you, but then as a gift he treats you to an all-you-can-eat shrimp buffet. You have the signs "I have deathly shrimp allergies" hung all over your house which he could've seen in the past few weeks.

Ehh, not really. The shoe thing seems kinda obscure.

It's like having someone in your house for a few days and expecting them to know that you only brush your teeth with a certain toothpaste. Obvious to you. Not so much to them.
