We're not in the end times; the Millennial generation is simply at the same age the Boomers were in the 1970's. The Boomers were horribly destructive at that age, and the Millenials are simply repeating the behavior of their parents. Eventually, people will get hate-fatigue and it will be Morning in America again.

Woo hoo! Friday thread! What have people been reading / playing / watching?

This week, I read White Flight: Atlanta and the Making of Modern Conservatism. And I read about half of Days of Rage. I've really enjoyed both of them and would recommend them. I'm on an Exit-vs-Voice + what-happens-when-people-are-radicalized kick right now (I read a book about John Brown and also Kill All Normies last week, along these same lines).

And, I played through most of the old SNES game Actraiser this week with my kids watching. My daughter preemptively jumps out of anxiety right before I jump in the game, which is really cute but pretty distracting if I'm doing hard jumping puzzles and she's right next to me.

I like mixed mode games like Actraiser and wish there were more of them - it has side scrolling platforming and an overhead kind of SimCity-Lite mode, and neither of them are especially strong for the genres they're in, but the fact that I get to go back and forth between them helps keep them from wearing out their welcome. (I would put games like the NES games Guardian Legend and Blaster Master in this general category as well). Actraiser 2 abandoned the split mode thing and was, I think, much the worse for it.

I just read a book called Days of Rage based on a /pol/ recommendation

It goes over a lot of the radical left domestic terror groups from the 60s and 70s, including Obama's old friends and bombing enthusiasts, the Weather Underground

It's fucking stunning how many of the psychos in this book went on to teach in universities for like 40 years since their terror careers ended

For those who want to know how much worse this can get without breaking modern precedent:

The US unorganized militia is codified as any able bodied male age seventeen to forty something: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/311

So... there’s that. However, papers don’t grant rights in my book.

Beyond that, no, most terrorism has not been carried out by the right wing. Maybe in recent decades or something like that, but overall, it’s not even close: https://www.amazon.com/Days-Rage-Underground-Forgotten-Revolutionary/dp/0143107976/ref=nodl_

I’m willing to learn something, but you gotta provide some data. I’m willing to learn, but you should know that ultimately I don’t care, so I’m not too attached to my thoughts here, but even if what you say is true, it changes nothing about my opinions otherwise.

> Do you know what organization David Duke is closely associated with?

We know what you're pulling here and it's stupid.

Duke hasn't been involved with the Klan for nearly 40 years, and when he was a part of that organization that he eventually left his goal was reforming the organization into a non-violent activist movement. His organization, the KKKK, was never accused of or faced charges for acts of violence. His intentions ill-founded or not, his association with the KKK is no more than Barack Obama's association with the Weather Underground via Bill Ayers, which actually did commit several acts of violence.

SDS, SCLC, and SNCC were positively riddled with Communists, including active Soviet intelligence agents. The Soviets were rather cynical about their role, seeing it primarily as a means of destabilizing the American war effort and deflecting criticism from their own human rights abuses - but many of the home-grown Marxists did anticipate that their actions would trigger a Communist revolution in America. (The story of what those hardliners did when the revolution failed to materialize is a fascinating one.)

Check out Days of Rage, which is a pretty recent book about the many left-wing bombings of the 1970s.

u/SimonLaFox · 2 pointsr/BrandNewSentence

There was literal terrorism going on the the 70s, like actual bombings by extremist groups being a daily occurrence, yet for some reason everyone forgets that.

Check out Days of Rage, a book that goes into detail about this: https://www.amazon.com/Days-Rage-Underground-Forgotten-Revolutionary/dp/0143107976

Leftists consider all social interaction as violent class and identity struggle. They have undertaken centuries of violent terrorism to back up their theory.

Usually, they kill the working-class, and successful peasants. Wall Street being a fine example.

I learned this today from the book: Days of Rage by Bryan Burrough .

Also I find it mystifying that Eldridge ended his life as Mormon Republican. History is stranger than fiction....

>Mr. Erickson had said on social media, according to a report in Heavy.com, that he hated Christians for their teaching on homosexuality and his accounts suggested he was not a fan of President Trump.

>On social media, Devon Erickson, a registered Democrat, expressed hatred for some Christians, and shared posts criticizing Donald Trump and praising Barack Obama, which you can see later in this article.

https://heavy.com/news/2019/05/devon-erickson-devin/In a school. He's not ANTIFA and thankfully there's only been one casualty, but the attempt was certainly there. Expect this to get memory-holed momentarily. The left doesn't want any attention on the shooter and the right doesn't want any attention to shootings in general.

I literally just opened the news today and just found this. How's that count?

You also completely have forgotten about the Days of Rage when there were 1000s of bombings a year. The left actually rushed into Congress guns blazing. Somehow everyone has forgotten and many of the leaders of the movements found jobs in academia (see, for example, Bernadine Dorn and Bill Ayers) where they "forgot" to include their activities in the textbooks. https://www.amazon.com/Days-Rage-Underground-Forgotten-Revolutionary/dp/0143107976


EDIT: This guy doesn't seem like "far-left" either. It's a stronger indictment of a larger group than what you're attempting.

u/CattitudeLatitude · 0 pointsr/WhitePeopleTwitter

Why, you're more than welcome to point me in the "right" direction, since you're arguably feeling quite certain of yourself. Do be careful to provide reliable sources, though! :)

Incidentally, have you read "Days of Rage" by Bryan Burrough? It certainly doesn't reveal a particularly plesant modern history of the american left, to be sure.

> Are liberals pro gun yet? Because I want to place bets on who stacks more bodies before both sides get bored.

Check out this book.

In short, anti-trump crowd has better infrastructure and logistics. If things come down to violence, they will rack up more bodies.

> Nobody was there for a protest, they all showed up for a fight.

That's not what I've seen on the streams though, even though streamers were more interested in showing violence than the actual rally. It's quite surreal when you have protesters in that park on the stage preaching that we shouldn't be divided by race or gender or political agenda, while hundred yards from there masked crowd is throwing explosives and bottles into protesters. And it's the masked crowd who is backed by side people call "progressive" and "liberal".

Sure, many people went there to be angry in a non-constructive way. Some people went there to provide medical help in case of violence (that counts as showed up for the fight too I guess) and we honestly need to praise them more. But there were also genuine protesters.
