Lest we forget that a majority of the people doing this are white.
@Sir Borksalot , you can thank mandatory social justice classes and outrage culture for that. Now we have dozens or even hundreds of people who believe it's their job to be offended for everybody else, and see no problem with what they do to show this offense.
@Your Waifu, and now California schools are adding an ethnic studies requirement! Even more worthless GE to take our money but not teach us anything!
@Sir Borksalot , what if I told you police commiting war crimes is something everyone can get pissed about. I love how the don't tread on me cosplayers immediately joined the side of the government the moment push actually came to shove.
@Your Waifu, they called it "culture diversity" at my school
@Cpzombie, in ethnic studies my class learned about Irish slaves and the mistreatment of the Irish people and it helped the black students learn that it wasn’t always black people who were abused it was just the most widely accepted, we also learned about Mexican and asian hardships, it’s important to learn from the mistakes of our history
@Sir Borksalot , the people who set the autozone on fire were all white
@hollow114, its not a warcrime if there is no war. The rules governing chemical warfare are in place to prevent a nation from unleashing thibgs that make people die horrible deaths, not make their eyes sting for a while. Lastly the USA is above international law anyway because no one wants to actually actively stop us from being evil
@Simeon, you think that’s what a majority of them will be though? Most of them are just SJWs pushing their agenda onto the students that are forced to take the class for a degree
@Sir Borksalot , mostly skinny white college students who never had a job
@Darth Panserbjorne, h-how is that your response.
@Sir Borksalot , @your waifu, I like the phrase, offense is taken, it can never be given. Still testing if it can be given, however it's a good reminder to keep my emotions in check. A person doesn't clean up their mess at work and then I have to clean it? I'm not offended, I can be, but why be upset over that. It affects me, and I'm pissed off, sure. But there's better things to deal with than that. I'm in the middle of growing my self confidence and wonder if these emotional babies are just not advanced yet. I agree with mandatory social warrior classes, not cool ideas. That alone sounds slanted, and if it is biased, shame on them. There should be accountability for that b.s.
@hollow114, I have a response for you, but won’t bother. Your inability to understand nuance or logic have repeatedly proven that there is no point in trying to have a rational argument with you.
@big freedom, I'm just so excited that now liberals are the ones who showed that if the government ever failed it would be us doing something. I've known for a long time the right "woke" narcissists were nothing but closet nationalists. You'd all bend over for Nazis if they came. Even Ben Shapiro is defending the police. It's hilarious.
@hollow114, do you enjoy being led around by your nose and being so easily manipulated? You really seem to revel in it.
@big freedom, I'm not really sure what you mean there big freedom. Is it that it's getting really hard to figure out how to hide your nationalism. Seeing as the pro freedom team is now the liberals? Why not go find a boot to lick. Or better yet whine about masks or science. The right is so far gone it's become laughable.
@hollow114, Someone should smack every teacher you ever had for failing so badly.
@Simeon, that seems a lot more valuable to talk about than how a lot of the people who engage in outrage culture talk about it.
@hollow114, lmfao! The modern liberal is FAR from pro freedom. They want all the power to tell others what that can or cannot do, what they can or cannot say, what they can or cannot even think.
Ask any progressive, liberal group that claims to be inclusive if they will accept a Trump supporter, or a religious conservative, or a cop, or a military member to a rational exchange of ideas. The progressive left is by far the most rigid,ideological, closed minded group in history.
@hollow114, the funny thing is, is that you think I’m “right wing”. You’re so anti-liberty that you’d rather belong to a “side” than actually have a single thought in your head.
I’m not pro-cop. I’ve been for police reform way before any of this racism started.
I’m a scientist so I know how effective masks are.
Unfortunately the biased biased progressives are so anti-science that they refuse to see just how incredibly illogical they can be.
How’s your science when it comes to biological sex? How’s your science when it comes to freedom of choice (for anything other than abortion)?
You’re sofa king clueless... you are the walking definition of Dunning - Kruger.
@big freedom, man you get really worked up on a meme app
@Cpzombie, I studied ethics at school and in my degree (I did economics, but it seemed like an interesting outside option/they wouldn’t let me take lesbian studies as I wasn’t doing sociology). At school we learn that serial killers are bad and that most teenagers will let the old dude that might one day cure cancer die if it means saving the hot blonde who might sleep with them. In my Degree I learned that most people do good deeds not because they want to do good, but because they want to want to do good - so most selfless acts are actually people doing it to convince themselves that they’re a good person. People suck, who knew?
Damn it's almost like the people vandalizing monuments haven't done their research.
The regressives have an overly simplistic view of history which is that its all black and not white. Their understanding of history is below the level of an average kindergartner.
@CocoasBro, no, give them some credit. I wasn’t taught history in Kindergarten. However I was thought how to read, and they seem to be lacking that skill. Most of these monuments have plaques talking about their significance.
I think stuff like this shows that most of these rioters dont care about racial equality. They want to erase history and bully/shame everybody into giving them power.
@spongeblade, thats the reality of it. They dont actrually care about racial justice. Thats just an excuse for their primary goal. Topling america and bringing a communist revolution. Destroying history is a part if that
@CocoasBro, the truth of history is that everyone sucks and there are no good guys just winners and losers with both sides of every war committing atrocities that get swept under the rug by propaganda except the nazis pretty much everyone agrees they were the bad guys
@Sirsketch, i dont think so. Their line of thinking is pretty much blacks were slaves. Slaves = bad.
America had slaves. America= bad. White people owned slaves. White= bad.
@eleven, pretty much but if you look at it from different angles you can get a light grey or a dark grey still. Hitler was a vegetarian. If your a socialist it was good because they were implementing your idealogy. If you view the world along the lines of race you can see hitler as a hero for the white race.
@CocoasBro, I upvoted because you’re right, not because I believe Hitler was a hero.
Marxists aren't known to care about context or history
Maybe it’s not about racism anymore
Maybe these people just hate America?
Looks like they don’t matter after all.
Not so fun fact: this post is late. This didn't happen last week, it happened over three weeks ago, and this is after it was renovated just last month. They unthinkingly vandalized something that someone had just taken days of their life to fix up.
I heard that one of the ppl in that regiment were racist so u know what that means... we have to remove the whole monument because apparently ppl can’t handle history as if removing a statue will either make what that person did go away or at least make ppl forget that whatever he/she did didn’t actually happen
@bobbylupo, just like the Hitler statue in Berlin and the Satan statue at the Vatican.
@bobbylupo, it also seeks to damage the memory and respect of the Black lives sacrificed in the name of freedom. What are the protesters fighting for anymore?
@Factory BOY, anarchy
@hollow114, neither of those ever existed but if they did it doesn’t erase history or negate any good they might have done hitler brought Germany out of a depression worst then America had and satan used to be an Angel
So ignorant. They see Civil War stuff and assume everyone was a southern racist...they tore down a Gen. Grant statue in Cali....he friggin won the war for the Union. (Face palm)
The movie "Pride" is about the 54th Regiment. Also, the Stevie Ray Vaughn statue in Austin got vandalized
The first was an image of a monument known as the Memorial to Robert Gould Shaw and the Massachusetts Fifty-Fourth Regiment in Boston. The back of the monument was defaced by unknown parties during protests and counter-protests on May 30 and 31 2020. The second image showed the “District of Columbia. Company E, 4th U.S. Colored Infantry, at Fort Lincoln” per the Library of Congress, not the 54th Massachusetts Regiment.
The bottom image is actually Company E, 4th U.S. Colored Infantry, at Fort Lincoln. Source from truthorfiction
I was like 101! Fück this guy
God this app's community is cancer. Like cops commiting war crimes, but let's pretend it's about people getting offended.
@hollow114, it's fallen pretty far in the last decade.
@hollow114, if you’re going to post intentionally inflammatory comments and then get salty when you get clap back for it, you’re the one being cancerous.
If you hate the people here so much, leave. The app will be better without your toxicity.
@hollow114, perhaps your opinions are not as popular as you think they are.
@I Are Lebo, I don't think I'm salty. Lol
@ORGANIC, no it's just one big "woke" circle jerk. I'm guessing teenagers or early 20s. Claiming superiority over an entire group of people based on hand picked situations like idiots don't exist across the political spectrum. It's pretty annoying, and funnily falls apart for people like Shapiro every time he debates an actual expert.
@hollow114, this is a joke app.
@hollow114, May I recommend going to 9gag. There, you’ll find an over abundance of people just as yourself.
Yeah? The military is pretty racist. F🍆ck those guys too.
It was vandalised by opportunistic vandals, not BLM. Stop trying to spread nonsense.
