All the crap we have going on and this is where people put their time and energy?
@troubled panda, stop attacking us, bigot
@troubled panda, this is why society is collapsing. Real problems are left to stagnate, while these people distract us and divert our energy and resources to this garbage.
Feels like the Romans arguing about philosophy while the Germanic army assembles.
@I Are Lebo, Samuel francis- anarcho tyranny. Look it up.
@troubled panda, well yeah if we try to solve real problems we’ll have to do actual work can’t have that just look busy
@weneedacrusade, based on the content of his Wikipedia page, that man was an absolute moron on multiple levels.
@weneedacrusade, really, a downvote with no response? You’re linking me to someone that was thrown out of his own profession for making racist remarks and promotes conspiracy theories about shadow governments, all the while pushing extremist views?
I’m open to the possibility that the wiki was written by people biased against the guy, but I did what you suggested and googled him, and the results are a far right idiot that believes in white supremacy and that any government is inferior to the pure chaos that would result from a system in which the powerful and cruel have whatever power they can accumulate while the common man has nothing.
That man was a fücking idiot and if you think his terrible ideas are worth promoting, you are, too.
I bet they wanted it moved. To get someone else to pay to remove it, they call it racist.
@Whisker dan, it was a student activist group. They moved it because a photographer called it the n-word once in the 1920s.
The activist group was proud that they got the college to spend half a mil moving it.
@That one lurker, just shows how much money colleges really make
@That one lurker, hey man, the little things you know
@Atomicking74, yeah man, it's funny how people just go about there day. Only to have an activist scream out the celebrity stars in Hollywood are racist because (insert race) isn't being easily identifiable by the color of their hand print.
It's a Marvel how I could have lived so long not carring about something, to keep on not carring about it.
How the fvck is a Boulder racist?
@Mantis Tobaggan, because of a name it was called in the 1930s...for real.
@mans laughter, wow lol
@Mantis Tobaggan, I read a couple articles about the Boulder situation to try to understand the grievance, including articles cited by other outlets. They all danced around what was specifically offensive, until I found the New York Post. One article in one publication (The Wisconsin State Journal), a century ago (in 1925), once described Chamberlain Rock as a n—head rock. Then clarified that the term was a common colloquial term for a large, dark rock. The KKK also happened to have an unrelated presence on campus in the 1920s.
The term was never a nickname or shorthand for Chamberlain Rock, and no other use of the term was ever found connected to it.
Because a group of students got triggered over a line in a 1925 article, the University of Wisconsin had to pay $50k to move a boulder from the location it naturally sat for at least 12,000 years.
@JDPhi, Did they drop it on top of the person who complained? Cos that would be the only way I’m ok with this.
@Nellybert , they moved it across campus to some place that can only be accessed with a lot of effort and deliberate intention to find it. It is still accessible for geological study.
This is so that the students won’t have to see it and be reminded of the oppression it represents.
Wait til they find out what Brazil Nuts were called back in the day...
People are nuts these days
CNN: “Sources say, NH Rock was at the Capitol Bldg on 1/6 INSURRECTION!
Never forget. Never forget. Amen.”
MSNPC: “It has been widely reported…”
Wojaks: “It’s all over the news, man.”
@Cave Dweller, HAHAHA! Rekt!!
@Cave Dweller, Fox: hurrrrrrrr duurrrrrrrrrrrr
@Runnin with scissors, Yes, even more so lately.
@Cave Dweller, my favorite line is "a source familiar with so-and-so's thinking." Which literally means jack shjt.
@Mag3rPayne, Ha! Jack Sh*t’s their “Senior Correspondent.”
I fully endorse an alien invasion that wipes us out. Humans are cancer in the universe.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, hopefully we'll get anally probed before they kill us at least. Just trying to be positive.
@Dangerous Dan Spivey, one can only hope, mi amigo
Looks like it had a plaque on it
I don’t know if this is a joke or not
@Gallchobhair, somebody found a record of it being referred to as "n*gger head rock" so they moved it
@HSA, it was referred to as "rocks who really annoy you"
@HSA, they moved a rock because someone once refered to it by a mean name? Noah, get the ark
@HSA, Wait why the fvck was it called that?
@HSA, as a black man, I can safely say there’s some powerful NlGGATRY going on here!!
I’m just here for the spongebob reference
WE DIDN'T LAND ON PLYMOUTH ROCK! PLYMOUTH ROCK LANDED ON US!
That rock is herritige! I'm even more fake outraged they're taking it away!
