Evidently the Bakmuht campaign is not going well. I say allegedly because, as usual, the sources of this are pretty shaky. Hopefully it's not true because this is a major escalation otherwise. Like point-of-no-return level.


This is literally like the last days of Nazi Germany. Sending everyone they have, old, young, combat ready or not, right into the meat grinder.


God? I thought you guys didn’t like God, considering all the witches and pagan rituals Ukro-Nazis perform.


Honestly, there is no ban evasion. I know because I tried pretty hard to cover my tracks. I got banned through an alt and it affected all my accounts. That means the robot has your IP so whatever computer you were posting from is completely compromised. Plus, the way the site is designed, you’re account isn’t “real” until you get some karma which could take days assuming you aren’t shadowbanned immediately.


It’s a feeling of powerlessness, I guess. Going through reddit I saw posters who were genuinely convinced that the balloon was some kind of an attack or that it was carrying nukes and biological weapons. Just a laundry list of impossible scenarios to justify being scared of China.


The balloon drama is the dumbest thing I’ve seen come out of this country in quite some time and that’s saying something. So many people irationally angry about some harmless scientific equipment.

The only way I can make sense of any of this is that this whole exercise was a massive psyop by the government to check and see how open the unenlightened masses are to the idea of war with China. And considering that cons and libs both are saying we need to send a missile over there in retaliation, I’d say they’re very happy with the results.

You know, the biggest argument against that thing being a spy balloon is this: It is 2023. China has spy satellites just like us, they don’t need a dirigible.



So missile strikes on Ukrainian civillians bad, but missile strikes on Russian civillians good? I wonder how much of that is some idiotic feeling of revenge (for something you’re not involved in) and how much of it is libs jacking off to the idea of war crimes.


The cognitive dissonance is insane: "China owns America...but also, we're going to attack China in the next few years and, despite my many racist tirades to the contary, I think that's a bad thing!"

How much fucking money did we waste shooting that thing down?


The people in the replies, who are clearly not Ukrainian, mindlessly regurgitating slogans make me sick. They don’t even understand what they’re saying.



I used to be in the military and…yeah. This event is treated as an eventuality. Which is pretty insane to me because our leaders know we can’t beat them. Launching a war with the actual strongest military on the planet is a losing gamble.


"Russia loves Nazis!" you cry And then you have to twist yourself into a pretzel to explain how that would make any sense if they claim to be going into Ukraine to denazify.

“Feel sorry for this evil man”


I was browsing Twitter a little while ago and I was reminded of this "heartwarming" story of an old man who shot and killed a fleeing woman. First of all, even if there was nothing fucked up about that it's hardly worth bragging about. Secondly, a human doesn't cease to be a human just because they've commited a crime. We're raised from a young age to think gun fights are cool via action movies and guys murdering over property is portrayed as completely normal. This is why mass shootings are so common here and nowhere else: We've made it far too easy to not see other people as people, it transcends even the old "Us vs Them" mentality with regards to race and creed. Whites kill each other way just as easily. Oh and don't bother reading that thread, it's a sickening mix of chauvinism and mysoginy.

I couldn’t get past the first 6 seconds, holy shit what a delusional man.


Did you see that reddit thread about South Africa choosing to support Russia? Didn’t take a second for pro-Ukraine types to get racist.


Not even pretending Zelensky, the other world leader involved in this garbage, has any ability to cease hostilities.


You can tell we’re being lied too because this article is actively avoiding talking about Ukrainian losses.


When you’re winning so hard, you’re taking massive casualties, losing all your tanks and missiles and can barely maintain your battle lines.


This is pure performance. Ukraine’s not gonna see those tanks before the war ends.


Wait, they make you pay for a pfp? What happens if I just make one in photoshop?


Man they’re really struggling to connect Russia and Nazi Germany.


What fucking war has this many memes made about it?



I love how the thought that maybe the German Government know something we don’t doesn’t even cross his mind.



I’ve been watching Breaking Bad, and it has to be the most compelling argument for selling drugs I’ve ever seen.
Walt's medical bills alone would bankrupt him for the rest of his natural life, even if he had good insurance. This is all based on real shit by the way, as we all know. No free medicare in the US. I get the feeling this wasn't the mentality they were going for when they wrote this damn thing, but inflation and rent and all. Just makes you think, y'know?

Nazis have done a fantastic job of endearing themselves to Western reactionaries.


I’m super opposed to the idea of merging all our subs together under one banner.


Nothing has changed except the narrative


I got hit by a NAFO brigade on Twitter today and I noticed a few things

  • They will attack you over almost nothing, all I did was call out their spamming
  • All attempts to talk things out is hit with immediate gaslighting
  • I was referred too as “demon” for some reason. Demon. Over a difference of opinion. I guess that’s the dehumanizatiom coming into play.

My takeaway: These people are not only disingenuous, they’re also insane zealots.



Remember kids, using your head makes you a Russian bot.


I think it’s the implication that a man is about to beat up some women that makes it a bit sour.


They have all these funny little dehumanizing words for anyone that doesn’t regurgitate that Russia Bad.


When confronted with a fact that doesn’t fit the narrative, he tries to virtue signal by pretending to care about Palestineans.


I knew a guy who was a WW2 history buff, but that also seemed to be the only thing he knew about. To the shock of no one, he was a super right wing gun nut and we were all afraid he was going to shoot up the office one day.


They’re literally just making shit up at this point.


What is with the circlejerk over tanks lately, like specifically tanks? That’s not some war changing weapon, that’s basic equipment for a modern military. Is this the media’s way of telling us that Ukraine is almost completely exhausted?


It’s exactly like Starship Troopers, they boast about the equipment being sent over, the improved tactics and the great leadership but not a word about the heavy casualities being suffered.


One thing I love about the hypothetical invasion of Russia is the implicit mass slaughter of citizens. Because literally none of these battle plans seem to take noncombatants into account.


Remember kids: Even being from a certain country means you're complicit in "genocide."

The "before pornhub" one really bothers me, because it seems to be implying that walking up to random women and assaulting them is something that should happen more.

What’s the deal with the World Economic Forum?
Pretty much every day I see conservatives desperately trying to blame those guys for everything going wrong in their putrid way of life and frankly I don't really get it. You can't even look them up reliably because every article on the subject is deepfried in paranoid Mccarthy style doomsday talk. I will admit that that particular group comes off as a bit ominous but all the NWO shit is the same deflective nonsense it's always been: This pathological need for a villain to make all the complex problems facing our society make sense. If it's not Klaus Schwab, it's Soros, or Clinton or lizard people. So yeah, what do actual socialists think of all this? And please spare no detail, I'm in the mood to read.

Particuarly Russian civillians and "collaborators"

Rant; The Lord of the Rings fandom is super chill - until you start expressing the wrong opinions
I'm a huge Tolkien fanboy, loved LOTR and the Silm since I was a kid. But I swear interacting with other super fans is like walking on thin ice. Everything's chill as long as you go with the hive mind, but then you say that you think X character isn't that good or that a certain aspect of the plot wasn't done well and you get dogpiled. This also includes the obvious, like the blatant racism on display with orcs and elves or the treatment of some characters who are implied to be neurodivergent or gay. The r/tolkienfans subreddit comes to mind, I've seen a lot of threads turn into passive aggressive shitflinging because the OP talked about gays, praised the movies or made a "childish" thread about a character they like (God forbid every post isn't an essays worth of analysis) Rings of Power definetly made things worse. If you expressed anything but pure contempt for the very concept, and everything attached to it. You get called out hardcore. I told a guy that it didn't look too bad and suddenly, I'm a fake fan that loves to consume corporate trash. Amazon's an evil company of course, but I remember a lot of th backlash being more about the women and POC than anything Bezos is up too.

How fucking deep does this go? I know I sound like an r/conspiracy poster but this is absolutely insane. Even the Pope is telling everyone to send all they can to Ukraine. No other charity, no other warzone, ***JUST*** Ukraine. The same Ukraine that just outlawed Orthodox Christianity and suddenly has Neo-Nazi rituals and witches all over their social media. This is a scheme, there's no other explanation, this is a massive money laundering operation. If a person can't see that at this point, they're beyond help. Maybe the US finally ran out of free money to give and that's why it's being called "donations" now instead of lethal aid or humanitarian assistance.

I liked Mandos better when they were just cool guys in armor. Like Boba and Jango, but then Lucasfilm became aware of their fan favorite status and put them at the forefront of everything. Literally everything new we learn about them makes them look lamer and lamer. They went from asshole crusaders with a vague honorable backdrop to space samurai that have nothing but agreeable politics. Less is more I feel.

Thousands dead and there's allegedly a horrific genocide going on, but the Ukies are putting out videos of pretty girls dancing in the snow? Makes you wonder...

By the "entire civilized world" he clearly means white western countries.

How big is our overlap with the reddit counterpart?
I want to imagine our allies on the blacksite are getting to see our unfiltered posts here, but there's probably no way to quantify it.

It’s always sad when a content creator reveals themselves to be kind of a POS (story time).
There's a YouTuber I used to watch, CinnamonToastKen. It was pretty good, family friendly fun of him and his buddy just making fun of reality shows and stuff. One of those shows was this TLC thing called "G*psy Brides", which is about Romani people acting like rednecks and that being funny for some reason. It was at this point, that I began to realize that neither Ken nor any of the commenters realized that the G word is a genuine slur. That wasn't the dealbreaker though, that came later when he said in an aside during a video that he was told by someone that it was, indeed, an ethnic slur. So Ken's response to this was bewilderment and his immediate assumption was that this wasn't a real thing and just another instance of "people being offended for others." So he decided to ask his community if it was really a slur and to leave an explanation in the comments. Because, y'know, that's somehow easier than just googling it. He ended up hearting a comment that gave a childish oversimplification of the issue that ultimately said "Some people feel that way but most don't care" To this day I feel disgusted that instead of taking the L about his accidental racism, he just assumed it was a made up issue and then chose the one comment that protrayed it as some trivial thing. I guess I should've known he wasn't on the up and up when half his videos were collabs with Pewdiepie.

"I feel so empowered to fight fascists!" "I'M GONNA-I'M GONNA VOOOOOOTE"

In response to the Iranian drone stuff. These guys legitimately only care about white people. He doesn't see Iranians as people so of course it's perfectly reasonable to just start dropping bombs on a civillians sovereign country because they're supporting the wrong guy.

Complete 180 after 2 weeks of fighting with the Ukraine's dominance over the narrative.

If you have to completely black out all opinions to the contrary, you're not a free speech platform.

You have to understand how agitated I am that I felt the need to make this.

I'm genuinely starting to think there's some sinister plan at work here. America does not want Hillary to be president, how many times does she have to lose before this becomes clear?

Ron is more concerned about people looking for food and supplies after surviving a disaster than the actual relief for the disaster.

Low crime rate, yet women are encouraged to stay as far away from men as possible. To say nothing about how the police react when you report a rape or any other kind of assault. Hmm...

Boy, the next 20 years in Europe are going to be fucking wild once these fucks run out of Russians to kill. Who knows whose next on the chopping block.

The news out of Ukraine for the last 6 months has been nothing but this huge war, but suddenly it's safe for kids to go back to school? Including entrance ceremonies? Does this read as strange to anyone else?

"You shouldn't even be allowed to look at Russian media. And if you do, you're a Putin supporter."

cross-posted from: https://lemmygrad.ml/post/363151 > Ukraine is winning so hard they had to release an entire company of convicted war criminals and child rapists onto their own population just to replenish their forces. > > I think this speaks for itself, but all I want to say is remember how universal the coverage was all those alleged rapes being done by Russian troops when the invasion first started? Now those crimes weren't proven, these are and we haven't heard a word about Tornado Battalion in the media.

A rant about class clowns
So classes have started back up around the country and already I'm forced to share the campus with disruptive assholes. Fuck class clowns, and fuck the spew of internet apologia about how they must be tragic figures that deal with a lot at home. A lot of kids who make it a point to play the main character and fuck around in class (college btw, full grown adults) are just desperate for attention or just like to "troll" I had one guy who was just loudly replying to everything the teacher had to say during syllabus review, even when he had nothing to add and it was painful. I can't tell if he thought he was being funny or if he just wanted to be rude for no reason, but no one was laughing. Teacher talks about his past, the guy makes it a point to interrogate him about why he dropped out of school or what he did at his other jobs. Teacher brings up a quote and asks who made it, the guy makes a Captain Obvious "joke" about how he's a guy named xyz. Eventually the professor just stopped acknowledging him. This was the first day, and this dude woke up and chose to be a pain. Who does that? There's nothing scarier to me than a grown man who acts like a 6 year old. I swear this has only gotten worse since everyone's so on edge about...everything that they would much rather just act like nothing is wrong so the person doesn't fucking snap and try to hurt someone.

I guess terrorism is perfectly fine when it's done by white countries. Whether this was done by Ukraine or not doesn't even matter because the response is loud and clear: When you can't win on the battlefield, resort to the murder of civilians and that'll just smooth everything out. The double standards on display in this conflict are mind boggling.

The entire "joke" is that the evil Chinese are spying on you and you should be afraid of them. At this point, I that every TV show over here that gets really popular is obligated to start blasting pure propaganda at the viewer.

[Discussion/Rant] The backstory of Elder Scrolls is pretty f’d up when you think about it.
You can really tell it was and still is being written by bigoted WASPs. Aside from the obvious monarchism and the Empire being portrayed unilaterally as "The Good Guys" (at least until Skyrim), I've noticed for a long time that the backstory is riddled with genocides and ethnic cleansings. Almost always human on elf (the inhuman other), and almost always treated like a good thing. Usually it's the noble and physically superior Nords who just so happen to be blonde haired, blue eyed vikings. And when it's not them, it's the psychotic child killing robot man Pelinal Whitestrake or Tiber Septim using a time bending superweapon to annihilate thousands of Altmer for the crime of *checks notes* successfully defending themselves from his Imperialist bullshit. I think it's insulting that the victims of what can only be described as oppression are now painted as the Nazi-esque villains because the alternative would be making them way too sympathetic. That's not even getting into how they treat the Orcs and the Beast races. We talk about how guys like Tolkien and CS Lewis wrote a lot of racist undertones, and then Bethesda says "Fuck that" and just makes the ethnonationalism a plot point in all their games.

Putting aside Seagal's actual shitty behavior, it's just funny to me the double standard on display. A dozen celebrities visit Ukraine and shake hands with Zelensky and none of these idiots bat an eye, but suddenly when someone shows up for Russia he's a traitor. Because America is involved in the war I guess?

cross-posted from: https://lemmygrad.ml/post/337550 > I don't actually believe in WW3 as a possibility, but it's the blind arrogance of these people that it wouldn't be a big deal that keeps me up at night.

Also, that thread is full of Marvelbrain. Apparently half of Reddit doesn't about real arms manufacturers and their only frame of reference is Tony Stark.

Lately I’ve been thinking about how absolutely crazy America must look to the outside world.
We live in a country that is so bloodthirsty that it has not only been involved in wars around the world for 80-90% of it's existence, but there are mass shootings being perpetuated every week or so with no end in sight. We're so desperate to kill one another that it's not even safe to go a grocery store. But at the exact same time, the laws that allow this state of affairs to continue aren't used for their intended purpose. The 2nd Amendment is supposed to be for stopping the government from becoming tyrannical, but the ones who seem to champion it the most **are** the tyrants. Rights get taken away, protesters get brutalized but nothing ever really escalates like in other places. We all just decided to stop caring and move on within a week, mostly to keep our oppressors from clamping down even harder. Sometimes it feels like the U.S. is a land full of hostages. Where the few hold the power and their armies of well paid thugs are encouraged to crush any resistance.
