This thread is intended as the US domestic counterpart to the General World Events thread. Post any and all things regarding US politics here.
To begin with, the US Coast Guard just removed a Coast Guard member for making the okay sign with his hand.
I mean, it's pretty clearly not intended to be an ok sign. if it was, he wouldn't have had to be so sneaky about it.
Fact of the matter remains that the ok sign isn't a symbol of white supremacy. Only retarded leftists still insist that it is.
It wasn't the OK symbol, dipshit, as Malk pointed out, if it was he wouldn't have done it so sneakily. It's been used as a white power thing, with the the three fingers as 'W' and the circle and downward line of the hand making a 'P'. White supremacists do use this, but seeing as you're a troll who doesn't really support this guy at all, I'm really just explaining this to people who stumble onto the thread, I guess. Whatever.
No one actually uses it as a white power symbol. They only use it to trigger libtards like you who’ve been deluded into thinking it’s a white power symbol. Even so, I’m not even convinced that this person was using it in such a manner. You say he made the gesture “sneakily”, but do you have an actual video of him doing it? All I’ve been able to find are still images.
Victim your whole thread is stupid.
Yeah, there's video of him doing it. First thing I found. So, check mate, faggot.
Edit: Hang on a second, I just realized that I'd literally seen the video in YOUR link, not one of the other articles I checked afterward. OK, so you got me on this one, you tricked me and I didn't realize you were too thick stupid to check your sources.
I am increasingly beginning to believe that most American police are violent thugs with a tribal mentality.
That seems hypocritical as all shit.
I don't know what you mean.
Saying that sounds incredibly tribalistic. "Most of this group is evil! I am against this entire group!"
I didn't say they were evil, just that they were violent thugs. Also, they're the ones who are tribalist in the first place.
Yeah, I was exaggerating for effect, but put in "violent thugs" for "evil" doesn't change how hypocritical you're being. You're being tribalisitic in implying that most cops are this foreign enemy and another "tribe" you're opposed to, and in calling them tribalistic, you're being hypocritical. Doesn't mean tribalistic shit isn't an issue among cops.
Sure, variance is a thing and I agree cops aren't a hivemind like Coins is implying, but I'm going to have to agree with Coins that this kind of shit tends to lead to an "Us vs them" nature.
Also, cops do act really fraternally .It's the nature of the job, but unfortunately it also means they'll compare notes, lie on the stand, do all that sort of shit, and rarely, if ever, get prosecuted for perjury
Agreed, cops certainly have tendencies towards that, as in with any job, but amplified tenfold by the job they're doing and the whole "It's us versus them" thing.
omfg dolaned trundp... raCIST AND RAEP
But really, in my opinion, the US political spectrum is made up of the extremist vocal minorities forcing the people who aren't complete retards to pick sides. I'm just staying out of it, I'm not smart enough to do politics.
Painting both sides as extremist and then refusing to take part is a weak and cowardly move. It's the silent, reasonable majority like you who fuck up the entire system by not caring enough and then slowly shrugging as your world burns.
dURrr both sides are exactly the same
"Bet you think you got me cornered, well guess what nerd, BOTH sides suck! That's right, everyone who picks a side is a sheeple, and that's why I'm a centrist!"
Posted before Malk gets a chance to do it. (And I'm too lazy to use the actual meme pic)
yes I am cool and edgy
look how smart I am
why won't women sleep with me
ah you bastard. without my hatred of centrists, i am nothing
I was expecting it to be the below the waste "got 'em" okay sign, but that was just shady. I was never familiar with that being associated with white supremacy.
So white supremacists are throwing up gang signs like the Bloods and Crips now? Lol.
Retards even trying to ruin the okay symbol. Next thing you know, it'll be racist to blink.
I'm sure Mayana would approve.
Throwing out the Roman salute would be too obvious.
