    U.S. Politics: Oh Donnie Boy, the Feds are calling...

    Then you might be talking about civil war, for all that Trump has pissed off a lot of the top members of the military, former and present, I can see a lot of the military siding with Trump. Army especially.

    UK Politics: Deal, or No Deal. To May and Beyond.

    Well first, Yorkshire and Norfolk are both in England, and while I'm sure we could find plenty of examples of people from southern England talking about Northerners in the same vein as that example of anti-Irish propaganda The guy from the Vale posted (After all the Iceni probably didn't think very much of the Brigantes or Parisi and vice versa), we're talking about people from different Nations, so maybe use Norfolk and Aberdeenshire instead. Second, there really isn't as The guy from the Vale showed with what he posted about the English's views on the Irish.

    That's literally what the UK is. You don't even need people from outside the British Isles for this to be true. That why it's a United Kingdom and not just a Kingdom.

    Added to that, and just FYI, the foreign born population of Canada is about 1 in 5, or 20%. Not a whole lot of social unrest here. 15% foreign born has been business as usual in Canada since it confederated. https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/daily-quotidien/171025/dq171025b-eng.htm But you know "universal truth". That even if true would just mean there are too many xenophobic assholes in the country and why should anyone kowtow to what they want anyway?

    Maybe they're still under the impression that they're an actual Empire. Hint for any UK politicians that may be reading this, if you start some shit Canada and the rest of the Commonwealth isn't going to help you.

    Canadian Politics: Revenge of the small minds

    Which one will piss Trump off more? And make it seem like the rule of law thing wasn't bullshit?

    International News Thread

    https://www.ucsusa.org/sites/default/files/attach/2015/11/Cleaner-Cars-from-Cradle-to-Grave-full-report.pdf According to this EV are greener than ICE cars even in the worst grids in the US. You'd need something that manages greater than 35MPG to do better. This doesn't really surprise me, cause even with the not insignificant loss of efficiency of transmission I would still expect power generation using power plants to be more efficient than power generation using 100's of individual ICE's.

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    Yes and Yes. (Though for the former actually it's kind of mutual, UKIP is already far-right, but was using it's connection to those three to further that connection. Like a perpetual bullshit machine) I have watched their video's, that's why I know they're far right. Fucking hell "Sargon is a liberal" yeah, that's why he panders to the alt-right. If Sargon "cultural marxism is totally real guys" of Akkad is a fucking liberal and Paul Joseph "soyboy" Watson editor of and contributor to infowar's is a run-of-the-mill conservative than I'm a full on communist. Like if Sargon's actually a liberal maybe when white nationalists like Richard Spencer praise you for being among the "great entry points" for the alt-right you should distance yourself from that and stop using actual Nazi propaganda as a talking point. Fucking hell this has gotten off topic.

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    I did, it doesn't change anything. In fact it's why I pointed out this guy is receiving support from, and supporting the alt-right. Which makes that guys central claim "it's making fun of Nazis" questionable. Because the Nazi's sure do seem to want to rally around this guy. Motherfucker's a member of UKIP. Someone doesn't have any idea of what they are talking about, but it's not me. "He isn't far-right, nor does he support the far-right" what a fucking joke. There's no need to take away the wrongfulness, cause nothing wrong happened. Also if he's so worried about jail, you'd think he would pay the fine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79teD7lP_dA See 2:40 in. I'm not pretending, I don't think anything wrong was done to him. Not everyone considers free speech an absolute. Someone's got one hell of an ego. I responded to a post about trolls vs terrible people by saying there's no functional difference, not only did I not bring up you, even if yes you were a subject of discussion by other's in the response chain, I didn't say anything about what people believe.

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    I would have thought me putting quotes around the word joke would have been enough to show that I don't accept that as a defence. I'm not sure I really accept that it was a joke, after all this guy has support from, and is supporting, people who would very much like to gas some Jews. But yeah "it was a joke." "Kill all the black people" it was a joke. "All Muslims are terrorists" it was a joke. "The poor are parasites" it was a joke.

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    You mean a "joke" and depending on what it is, yeah. In this case I don't have a particular problem with it.

    Oh yes, that poor far-right supporting racist piece of garbage. He's so oppressed at the fallout from his "joke." Such "real consequences" in the form of getting a 1/3 of a million dollars from far-right bigots who clearly are just concerned about free speech and not hoping to normalize hateful rhetoric.

    You're right, we can't ultimately know for sure, as unlikely as it is there is a possibility that this will cause harm above and beyond what it may do to the individuals. Yes, this is ultimately pretty unethical for all sorts of reasons even if it works out 100% perfectly.
