FWIW the only person that posts on Surly I would straight up assert is a right wing extremist is Iconoclast, whatever username he's using now, I forget. Maybe Poe as well.

Having right wing brain rot from watching too much Ben Shapiro or whoever the fuck and just nodding along without a single critical thought and/or jacking off to Elon Musk tweets is a different thing. You're never really going to reach either person, but they're not the same animal.

This.  The over-simplification of every far right-winger being the same degree of stupid/insane/lost just isn't productive, nor fair.  

AfterIrth and Pilot's Error are really the only two I can think of that are beyond far gone.  WorkswithSeed was getting there, but he's still young and we're supposed to be assholes at that age.  What far-right posters forget here is that unlike a lot of echo chambers, both sides have lots and lots of highly educated, successful people on here.  The shit you get away with on facebook or 4chan doesn't fly here and they're smart enough to know that.  Hence all the wisecracks.  

Back to this facility as a recruiting tool.  From reading objective sources, it's starting to sound like that was part of the impetus to clear-cut...they just didn't expect such a huge public backlash.  After all, there's dozens of clearings like that taking place every single day in this country.  But yeah, some off-the-grid rally track where they could play army and shoot guns and fuck around and have nobody know about it or audit it...that seems attractive. 

It is SEC country, so facilities matter.  Meanwhile, I have 2-stars humbly asking my bond oversight group for basic bathroom upgrades, another helicopter, and to move their horses away from the homeless lunatics on red River that keep trying to fuck 'em.  You know, basic cop shit.

I find your screed against my ilk very offensive.

I assume that by this point Atlanta is completely burned down and the rioters are headed for the suburbs.  Does anyone know which direction the rioters are heading, because my brother lives about an hour's drive north, and I'd like to send him thoughts and prayers if necessary?

it's too late. they've probably cannibalized the suburbs now and are moving on to other cities

if they manage to find themselves a prison with a big fence and a big yard and a cache of weapons, make sure they lock themselves into the cells each night just in case they become antifa overnight - you don't want that sort of thing getting out of the cell and spreading to the rest of them

this is fucking antifa apocalypse 101 shit and it's just sloppy writing to suggest that they wouldn't simply close the doors to the prison cells they are sleeping in as they fucking live through the antifa apocalypse what the shit goddamn.

@hayden_horn can you change the thread title to something less disinformation-y? It's outrageous to let a thread title like this exist when it's sooooooo far from the actual facts of what happened.

As more details come out about this protester's killing, the cops story isn't adding up and its becoming apparent that the cops have been over-charging protesters just to get them out of the forest so it could be bulldozed (per AP's reporting).

So we've lost Atlanta and Memphis in the last two weeks?  You'd think we would read/hear about 7.5mm Americans between the two MSA's being driven out by violence, arson, murder, rape, larceny, and rioting?  I guess we already lost Portland and Austin too?  And of course, we all know what's been happening in Chicago lo these many years...

I guess the only place that's safe are rural hellscapes.

Good idea. Might I suggest: “Panicky Fascist Preemptively Pees Himself.”

Unhinged MAGA Reporting:  "Memphis and Atlanta have fallen to BLM/Antifa.  Thundersleet caused by Jewish space lasers causing havoc across the Gulf States. Here's what that means for gas prices in the Rockies and the Midwest as CRT comes for your children"  

Reality:  "Memphis and Atlanta had a few highway ramps blocked off for a couple of hours by non-violent protests.  Dallas and Waco had a few highway ramps blocked off for a couple of hours by January ice.  Gas prices are set by the global geo-political commodity known as crude oil.  And earlier this month, my daughter received an assignment to write a paragraph about the work of MLK.  And she earnestly asked why he was assassinated.  And I told her the same reason they killed Gandhi, Bobby, John Lennon, and Jesus.  Part of our society doesn't like it when people start talking about being nice to one another.  So she went to the pages in her textbook about Dr. King's life and got a weird thing called facts.  My unhinged opinion on this very forum four years ago was that we were just a few years away from book banning and book burning.  And I was called an Unhinged TDS Sufferer.  And now that I serve on my ISD's committee regarding book removals, and have seen a burning in Tennessee...there is no CRT indoctrination/woke agenda.  Only those of on the righteous side of history and those we will gladly leave back behind in the darkness...where they belong."

Memphis, Atlanta, and other cities---they don't protest because of what they just found out what historically happened to their communities in books.  They protest because they read that stuff in books and can't fucking believe that shit is still going on today.  They made their peace with yesterday, they're rightfully pissed about today, and all some of you want to do is pretend tomorrow never comes.

Nonsense, they never walk alone.  Or they always do.  Something about hiding their numbers.  I dunno, I wasn't paying attention to the old man.  

this would be an excellent time for somebody to post that barefoot MTG standing on the beach though.  I think she might be half Jawa, or at least half sand-people.

Plus, I don't like it when people change fonts/cases on protest signs.  Colors of marker maybe, but make a commitment to block printing in a standard font.  

I'll give him credit, he did ventilate the sign after that windy pro-choice rally in Chicago years ago.  But yeah, he seems like a douchebag who would tell you he doesn't use one-off posterboard that ends up in landfills.  He uses that organic hemp sheet there over and over again washing the reusable conflict-free sharpie off of it.
