    "The confusion over the definition of racism and its correlate, the apparent growing fear of punctuation, is grounded in the late-modern loss of confidence in the very existence of nature as a category. Millennials and Zoomers have been taught in school that there is no such thing as nature (fixity) and that everything is a social convention or construction. It was against this that the Deconstructionists have raged for the last 40 years. Sexuality, they argue, is nothing but a social construction. This is why they speak of multiple genders (rather than of two biological sexes). If everything is a convention, if nothing is grounded in the nature of things—if there is no such thing as a “nature of things”—then life is reduced to a struggle for power.

    This is part of the explanation of why relatively prosperous, suburban young people are in the streets burning down less prosperous, urban neighborhoods in Minneapolis, Portland, and now Kenosha. This is why students at one of the most prestigious universities (see the video linked below) in the United States raged at a faculty member for daring to suggest that they be a little more inclusive about a Halloween costumes. They perceive that unjust authorities are attempting to impose an unjust system, which is merely a series of conventions, essentially a conspiracy, upon them. This is why young people, who have apparently never been told "No" in their lives, can only scream when police officers take them into custody. They cannot believe that there are no actual limits to their choices and when limits are imposed they are rejected as unjust.

    I suspect this is the reason why I feel like I'm watching myself slip into insanity. I really want to know what you guys think about this.

    This is the whole thrust of the case--the fact that the law supports his right to get himself in a sticky situation, and then bail him self out with a gun. He doesn't have what you call "a clear claim of minding his own business and then being attacked", and there is absolutely no reason whatsoever he should or will need one. Recall George Zimmerman--not only did he instigate his confrontation with Trayvon, he literally stalked him for hundreds of yards, picked a fight with him, and then abruptly realized he was going to lose, prompting a reach into the holster for a little plan B... and the legal system STILL sided with him.

    It's honestly bewildering that the kid was even charged, given the weight of the legal precedent behind the notion that his actions were legal. Truly a testament to what a powerful effect that BLM as well as the "Great Awokening" in general have already had on the functionaries of the legal system all the way in Wisconsin.

    Just for our amusement, what is the standard Socialist Parasite's position on self defense?

    Assume fetal position while loudly and cleary stating your name in an attempt to humanize yourself to the attacker.

    This so fucking weird, and I just don't understand what they are trying to accomplish, except maybe getting away from multi-million dollar salaries and getting back into the real world ASAFP. They could just quit, and it would happen faster.

    I don't understand what boycotting practice accomplishes. If this country sucks so badly, move. That's what my grandparents did from Greece to the US in the 1930s.

    Gun culture arises organically in any nation-state with a substantial rural population. Firearm use for self-defense ought to be permitted.

    I will remind you, Uncle Rip—and gently at that, for fear of provoking another verbal lashing—that liberalism and conservatism are the political traditions stained by past association with firearm confiscation. Say what you want about the revolutionary left, they certainly don’t want the people to be disarmed (Consider also that the leftmost dem candidate was also the only one who voted against the Brady Bill).

    There are many on this board who seem to have a short memory with regards to the police’s involvement in firearm policy. This idea that the police are champions of a firearm-tolerant legal milieu is VERY new in the grand scheme of things. The police have ALWAYS (up until apparently the past few years) been opposed to civilian firearm ownership, and some of the earliest examples of law enforcement professional groups involving themselves in politics is advocating in favor of restrictions. This selective memory is emblematic of this weird strain of cop adulation on these forums, where this core group of people just seem constitutionally incapable of admitting that a police officer did something wrong. Rip himself has been pretty balanced talking about the cops from what I’ve seen, but his forum oddly attracts these types of hero-worshippers.

    The real criminals in this case are the guys in charge of maintaining order in Kenosha, whether that's the mayor, chief of police, or some city council. These men allowed a situation to develop that let an armed 17-year old to enter into a confrontation with violent BLM thugs. If they'd put on a show of force that demonstrated that lawlessness and anarchy are not tolerated in Kenosha, none of this would have happened.

    I'm hesitant to suggest that the men running Kenosha should be hanged, but it might produce leaders who are actually worth a damn.

    The kid volunteered to defended his neighbors' livelihood against a band of maurading savages. If that's somehow wrong or controversial, remove yourself from the gene pool.

    The people in charge of Kenosha abdicated their responsibility to maintain law and order in their community. Brave volunteers placed themselves into physical and legal danger to protect people's property. Think whatever you want about the circumstances that led to this, this kid deserves a medal, if for nothing else than just situational awareness.


    It's bewildering to me that people think they can start shit and then not finish it.

    I knew guys like Trayvon back in high school. They knew the rules. They knew they could push people's buttons when the teacher wasn't looking. They knew they could toe the line and get away with it. But as soon as someone responded en force, they cried like a little bitch. They'd shove some kid into a locker and then say they were acting in self-defense when a teacher caught them.

    Fuck Trayvon, fuck the people who attacked Kyle, and fuck you. This shit needs to stop and it needs to stop now.

    Permitted. Allowed. Because the Government -- around whose cock your Socialist mouth is wrapped, and which has throughout history fucked up everything they have done -- has the final say in how self-defense is administered? Permitted? Allowed? The reason we retained the right to keep and bear arms is so that we didn't have to be allowed to do so by the Government. I'm with Itomo: please remove yourself from the gene pool.

    Let me try to explain again: You know how the "protesters" scream with incoherent rage at black cops? At everybody who is gainfully employed? That's how I feel about socialist vermin such as you, yet somehow I remain coherent, so you can understand me.
