Unemployed for nine fucking months.
Really though, you build an entire industry of journalism centered around shoving identity politics into video games, and now that it’s blowing up in your face, you blame the gamers for not wanting to make everything they do about gender and race.
This is the social justice blueprint.
Stick your nose in where you are neither needed, nor wanted, and when people react poorly to your meddling presence, treat them like they are the ones that don’t belong.
Accuse every dissenting voice of one or more of the many brands of bigotry you have at your disposal, and then if all else fails, make up a violent stalker to point at and scream that you feel really really threatened by.
Repeat until all spaces are safe saaaaafffe… !!
I think it’s fair to say that had those British cops been armed they may have shot the madman, especially at the beginning of the video when the guy was approaching the officers swinging the machete. And let’s face it if they had shot him then they could easily have justified it.
That’s why I’m against routinely arming the British police. Also it’s not just the guns that are the issue either, there’s a certain bearing and look that a British policeman used to have and they are losing it slowly as they equip themselves more tactically.
Cops dressed like stormtroopers behave like stormtroopers.

the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.
Tomorrow 8.22.2014 -Twitter storm on MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women) Please signal boost.
Addressing Canadian law enforcement on MMIW under #orgcrimechat ht.
The RCMP and the Canadian military have spent nearly $11.5 million in the last eight years on a national search-and-destroy mission for illicit marijuana crops.
Federal figures show the annual Mountie-led effort, known as Operation Sabot, has led to tens of thousands of pot plants being wiped out each year.
Liberal defence critic Joyce Murray, who uncovered the data, says she’s stunned at the amount spent on the project.
Last year the military spent more than $360,000 on helicopter support for the operation, which resulted in eradication of over 40,000 plants.
The military put more than $2.5 million toward the project in 2009, the highest annual tally among the figures disclosed to Murray through a parliamentary order paper question.
The RCMP says the goal is to target outdoor marijuana growing operations and reduce the supply of pot available in Canadian communities.
The war on drugs is so ridiculous. Why the hell would it cost $11.5 million dollars to remove/dispose of some plants, and spending almost $400,000 on helicopter support is ridiculous.
I don’t smoke, but I support legalizing marijuana. Instead of wasting millions of dollars of tax payers money you would be earning millions all while reducing crime drastically. So much ‘crime’ shouldn’t even be an illegal offence. Then more money could actually be spent on the real crime of concern; theft, violence, death, hard drugs, gangs, etc.
I do smoke, and I can tell you, this crap has ZERO impact on the availability of pot.
The only reason they even do this shit is to seize cash and property.
They are basically just organized thieves.
