Playing Sea of Thieves of course. My friends and I spent almost 3 hours locked in battle to the death with a larger ship last night. We sunk them twice before they finally caught up with us as we ran aground on a little sandbar and they executed us with pistols from the deck of their ship. We'd have sunk them a third time probably, but we ran out of wood and cannonballs.

The left has done everything Trump and his supporters have done: propagate wild conspiracy theories (rUsSiAn cOlLuSiOn), protest and cause violence, whip up supporters into frenzies on Twitter, they both have militant terrorist factions, they both have constituents who subscribe to hateful, fundamentalist views. The difference is that the left are hailed as mostly peaceful civil rights heroes and largely get away with their bullshit. At least, social media giants and the MSM let them get away with it. If you don't see it, you're probably neck deep in delusion and Twitter blue checkmark propaganda.

Except for the one cop trying despirately to stop a few hundred people.

It makes you wonder how he even passed the police test to get the job.

It was probably Honk.

Gottem

As a whole the violence associated with BLM protests caused more mayhem, but not as individual events. More lives were lost here than any individual BLM protest as far as I can see.

Oh it’s not violent unless the right amount of people die. How enlightened.

But yeah, it's good to know we could overthrow the government in an afternoon should the need arise.

Yeah it totally wasn’t a violent insurrection...

I don't think many disagree that it was, at least in part, a violent riot. The problem lies in the coverage of the event and the wild hypocrisy of the left. The BLM riots over the summer were far worse, racking up billions in property damage and dozens of deaths, but were largely encouraged by the media. Celebrities bailed out agitators, calls for violence were not removed from social media, and even calling them "riots" was met with moral posturing. The left set the precedent for this kind of behavior.

I think you have your time line mixed up.  The republicans lost the senate because of Trump's covid relief gambit.  But Trump lost the presidency because of a failure to effectively handle the pandemic.

Except for the fact that governors and local health authorities have far more power in controlling the pandemic than Trump does. Do you want Trump to act beyond the scope of his branch of government or not?

Trump only lost because of the COVID relief bill debacle. Don't think it's your twisted leftist culture that triumphed. People want their pandemic bux. McConnell also really fucked things up for him.

So yeah, I returned the hunk of shit and bought an M1 Macbook Air.

How can you return something before buying it?

The hunk of shit being the Thinkpad. It was still better than any other Windows laptop, but the Macbook Air is just too advanced. It doesn't even have a fan, the battery charge lasts forever, and according to benchmarks the M1 CPU is as good or faster than the i7-8700k I have in my main PC. This is the first laptop I've ever used that seems to defy the laws of thermodynamics.

We don't have any national ID cards so am I supposed to spend £60 on a passport just so I can exercise my democratic right?

Yes. Just like how you're compelled to file taxes to exercise your democratic rights.

Even Trump inciting sedition couldn't stop him from losing.  Incredible.

I’ve never been a big fan of the idea of systemic racism, but seeing this mostly white mob get away with this and then comparing it to the BLM riots is making it very difficult to deny.

I didn't see any of them throwing molotov cocktails, burning down random buildings, or looting Foot Locker for some fresh Jordans because muh oppression.

Just planting pipe bombs, right?  So because another group did something bad it's totally ok for Magahats to storm the Capitol Building?
.

Yes, it’s so awful. They basically took a tour of a public building and broke a few things. What an evil, horrible act.

2 pipe bombs, smashed windows, looting, 50 injured police officers, several still in hospital.

Quite the tour!

It was a tour compared to the millions in property damage and thousands hurt and dozens killed during the BLM riots. Which the media tried to paint as just fine.

Nah, just shooting people, smashing doors/windows, and stealing from the senate and offices.

Possibly an air jordon.

What people were shot by the protesters? Also it hasn’t been going on for months like the BLM riots did. You’re reaching pretty far.

This is supposed to be the terrible political memes thread, not the hilarious/really good political memes thread.

fml  :(

It will go on sale again when China does another purge. Also I was in on the ICO for chainlink at around 16 cents per and sold early, so my fml is way worse than yours. Don’t get into crypto if you’re a pussy. It will just break your heart, bro.

How does it end? I can't beat the game because I keep getting sidetracked by side missions.
