We don't choose our preferences. Thus "sexual preference" has been a phrase, accurately used in common parlance to refer to the manifestation of sexual orientation.




 — The Advocate, Sep 25, 2020


Right up until yesterday, when one of Congress’ preeminent political hacks decided to claim the phrase was now "offensive" because Amy Coney Barrett had used it.

So partisan clowns on social media amplify the stupidity:


 — Kyle Griffin, Senior Producer, MSNBC


 — A revealing moment from today's hypocrisy, more like. (See your own tweets from September, The Advocate)


And Merriam Webster immediately changes the definition of the word:




So suddenly an accurate phrase that was inoffensive last week, is now redefined as offensive, in service of political chicanery.

I'd imagine that all bisexual people are inherently therefore bigots, as they have no innate or natural preference and simply choose which gender to currently pursue?

Choices = preferences = compulsions, all the exact same word. Not just meaning, not just synonymous, they are the exact same word.

I'm so woke  :afro:

A very young co-worker whom I liked and his girlfriend were murdered 10 minutes from our jobsite:

https://www.news4jax.com/news/local/2020/10/06/st-johns-county-deputies-investigating-reported-shooting-in-st-augustine/

Now that the investigation has concluded, I'll share what transpired (I knew from friends anyway).

We had a Florida redneck country boy as one of our laborer positions. He was a hard worker and a very good kid, and I'll go ahead and throw it in there that he wasn't racist(his black friends are seen crying/mourning on the news).

He was laid off, and wanted to buy a bag of weed for his 22nd birthday(the following day). The 19 year old black kid getting him the weed knew about his nice new job, and decided to screw him over and rob him at gunpoint instead. Kyle(my deceased co-worker) tried to escape and floor it in his truck. He crashed into a parked car, where the shooter pursued him and shot/killed both Kyle and his girlfriend in the passenger seat.

Then, this happened at the funeral:


https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EEKY5oOAFKc

The one being charged with the burnout is a coworker/friend of mine. Boy, between me driving the AT AT and this crap we sure are dominating jacksonville FL news.

YES. Next time your wife is in the feminine hygiene aisle and she's trying to decide which brand of tampons to buy, remember to start a dialogue with the black cashier about how your choice of tampons may help to perpetuate systemic racism....because EVERYTHING is about race... for fuck's sake. ::)

Remember that tweet or sign someone did a year or two ago that said, "It's okay to be white."? Is it though?

The answer to that question gets clearer by the day.

Was watching an old Daniel Tosh standup special the other night, his most recent one actually from 2016, People Pleaser.

Quote from: Daniel Tosh from People Pleaser stand-up special
By the way, I do love this country. We’re the only place with any diversity. The entire planet’s segregated. You realize that when you watch international sports. ...(omitted part about the World Cup)... But we have diversity. Other teams don’t. Or if you look at the Olympics, you look at our, uh, U.S. Gymnastics squad, we have an Asian girl, a white girl, a black girl. Look at the Chinese squad. Any guesses? Did you guess exclusively Chinese bitches? Yeah, that’s all that’s ever been on that team. That’s all that will ever be on that team. Then they wonder why they’re not getting golds anymore. Well, you better get a Harlem in China.

We aren't diverse enough? Yeah. Just saying.

It's been really strange. I hit up the Guitar Center website almost DAILY sometimes, usually no less than once a week. I'm always looking for a couple of old somewhat rare pedals, or just nice cheap used ones, so I'm always scouring their site looking for cool shit to buy. So when weird shit happens there, I notice. A few months ago, suddenly they seemed to stop carrying Fulltone pedals. I couldn't understand why. Fulltone made some of the best and most sought after pedals in the business. I have a couple and I love them.

But as I said, suddenly you couldn't find them on the Guitar Center site anymore. You'd search for them either in the main search box at the top or the mini-search box on the left side under the "Brand" section, and it always redirects to either the main Guitar Center start page or the main effects page.

https://www.guitarcenter.com/Fulltone/Effects.gc

See? Link doesn't show anything. It redirects. And when searching for pedals by brand on the left side column, it says there should be 4 results. But it won't show any of them, no matter how you try to access it.

See for yourself. Go here and search for "fulltone" at the top,... or anywhere else.

https://www.guitarcenter.com

Well... Did you think it couldn't get anymore ridiculously political? WRONG.

https://www.guitarworld.com/news/fulltone-owner-apologizes-for-looting-rant

Guitar Center has joined the efforts to crush another American small business. :ohreally:

edit: Heh! It's no coincidence that pretty much ALL of the guitar oriented sites talking about Fulltone and all the retail outlets choice to ban his products... none of them have the traditional comments section at the bottom where people might express their opinions on it. But the very first youtube video I find talking about Fulltone alternative pedals, created just after the whole thing went down, has LOTS of mostly saying that they agree with Mike Fuller and still love his pedals.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTEETbLXwpE

Silent majority? More like SiLENCED majority.

Sigh. I'm gonna have to make a point of shoplifting from these Guitar Center motherfuckers now. NOT KIDDING. :teef: I'm 40, I have money to pay for shit, but if they can apparently believe that looting is a viable and justified political statement, then surely they can expect me to do it TO them as my own political statement.

If only the town hall had me and that dude that got his teeth knocked out questioning biden. Me, about CRT/wokeness/transgenderism/etc. being forced upon my children causing us to home school and missing out on a dual income, and him smiling with missing teeth asking if antifa is an idea. They'd do it to Trump no doubt. Just like if hunter's last name was trump his laptop would be the biggest story of the year.

It should occur to us at this stage in the game that maybe we're asking the wrong questions here when asking things like "Why is twitter banning the White House press sec'y?" or "Why is twitter censoring bad Biden press?"

Why AREN'T they censoring all the shit about Antifa and riots and violence? If there is a motive behind shutting down the Biden corruption dialogue, then there must be a motive behind allowing the negative Antifa press. And I don't think it's that they want to help expose it or promote free speech or any other objective that could be viewed as independent thinking. They've already proven that they have biased motives. It would be wise to remain mindful that ALL of their moves have a motive behind them.

I believe it's two-fold. It emboldens others to go out and do things like... kick police baracades right in front of several police officers, then when they ask you to stop, you can yell back "FUCK YOU, MOTHERFUCKER!", which these people would NOT do if they were alone and in contact with a cop in another city where civil unrest was NOT currently occurring. I see shit like that and I think, "Sometimes... not ALL police brutality is objectionable."

And more importantly, I think it terrorizes the people on the other side of their argument. Honestly, hasn't this shit resulted in more gun and ammo sales this year than ever before? They know this shit scares the right and the independents. They have to know, there's no way they can say they don't know.

These people can ban accounts from people like Varg Vikernes who never really discussed racist viewpoints, because they don't want to give "bad people" a platform. And from everything we've see in THOUSANDS of videos posted on there, these people in black hoods are "bad people" by all rational measurements. And they continue to give them a platform from which to organize and advertise these activities, which is tantamount to HELPING PROMOTE them... which is what they didn't want to be viewed as doing for people like Varg Vikernes.

The crimes committed during these organized Antifa activities... Twitter is an accomplice. Personally, I'd like to see all the victims of violence from these "protests" file a class action suit against Twitter.
