Figured this thread would provide a place to discuss events affecting everyone's daily lives. Try to keep it on topic for all things current. Please provide links to support topics discussed.

If you are white and love the United States you may soon find yourself on the naughty list.

The Nazis had that same problem circa 1939

They loved Germany and wound up on the naughty list

18 people were killed here last year
in white nationalist crimes. Over
700 were killed in bicycle accidents.
I'm just sayin..

It's not the cause person is involved
in that kills people, it's the person himself.
They join a cause because they're violent
and are looking for an excuse to kill.

Fox News today. The comment section is
where all the entertainment is.

So is this just gonna be another political thread?

IMO the names In The News and Current Events are some word I am searching for.

What is it?

Synonymous?

I remember her making this Tweet that she felt the need to delete from her account shortly after making it.

I think she is still a person of interest in the Seth Rich murder as well.

So let's get this straight, FOX fires a well liked brilliant judge and hires a possible murderer.

38 were killed in 2018, according to this list, not 18. The two largest were MSD shootings and Pittsburgh temple.

And it is the cause to some degree. People have been given "permission" by right-wing extremists to burn it all down, to be violent, to commit suicide by police. To blame the rest of the world, especially women and minorities, for their lot in life, rather than taking responsibility for themselves.

They get encouraged by tacit and outright acceptance of their complaints by those manipulating and escalating their resentment and fear. Did one guy march down Charlottesville streets with tiki torches and vile slogans? No. It was hundreds, meeting to provide strength in numbers and reinforce their shared resentment.

It's really irresponsible to ignore the role of organized hate groups and propaganda in escalating these incidents. The hate groups themselves are proud of the role they play - if they can admit it, why can't you?

As Face said elsewhere, current events in themselves can be interesting and useful topics, worthy of discussion. If this turns into another clickbait-y jingoist cesspool, we'll close it, too. So far, it's not looking good, but we'll see.

CURRENT EVENTS
IN THE NEWS

Totally different thing, I guess.

I'm sure me and PG can find some current events talking about family love.

You have a thread block button. I'm pretty sure non-politic current events will get discussed as well. I know the whole sub-forum of Freedom of Speech was shut down. I'm not ready to believe this site is Anti- American yet. Maybe you will get your wish and this thread will be censored as well. Give it some time.
