Doesn't get much more american than this.

Saw that on IG last night. Gotta love how the guy holds the rifle like Rambo (with the stock under the armpit rather than rested against the shoulder) and the lady assumes the Karen stance, with one hand on the hip and the other hand pointing a handgun in lieu of the index finger. And their "house" looks more like a government building.

LMNOP+ community (Lifestyle of Mainstream Normal Ordinary People) attempt to take (back?) june with the make the family great again movement. they have a convoluted mission statement that includes going around and rating government officials based on whether they discriminate mainstream normal ordinary people

@timbre monke Seems a matter of time before that ends up a bloodbath.

Had some amazing times in the US. A few prize cunts like anywhere, but overall very, very welcoming. However, from someone who lived among you, your future looks bleak with brand token gestures for appearance's sake. 100,000 plus covid deaths & counting, with a surge of grief immediate friends & families. Age old civil rights compromised by systems of financial segregation & an explosion of compressed, centuries old rage. Completely fragmented benefit & healthcare systems. An education system that wastes so much talent it beggars belief. Police that the world is seeing with a mixture of horror & good ol' fascination. And it can get much worse before the systems improve. Your election could be both the making & the breaking of the chance for real change on the surface, but that's a veneer. The scar tissue of trauma in the country's past & present tightens the fabric of tension. It seems fibrous, binding, reducing agency. Who cares how many Nordstrom Racks there are within a square mile? I dunno, this joint kicked my arse.

the key to surviving it is not to overthink it too much, and of course - numb your mind daily with alcohol + THC

That's one of those 'fascinating' american tropes. Making money off everything - being a good person and make money off it - being a whistleblower and make money off it - find the most obscure niche and make money off it - be a professional douchebag and make money off it - an 'expert' on the most useless topic.... and make money off it.

Profiteering and opportunism is the American way of life.

I wonder if that clip has bullets in it.

Do people really think that waving a gun around makes them safer? To me it seems that the likelihood of getting shot just increases. Like shouting "I know karate, motherfuckers!" will just eventually get your own ass kicked.

it's meant to work the same way a baby on board sticker works. let's say someone is going to shoot you, then they see you waving a gun, they now have to consider the implications of their actions. baby on board stickers deterred many people that were prone into causing car accidents when they realized there were babies in those vehicles and instead targeted cars that had no infants.

Yeah, lol.

But seriously if you're about to shoot up some fuckers, like there's a group of 10  and two are visibly carrying are you going to start with the unarmed or eliminate the threats first?

Or if you're going to rob someone and you know they have a gun. Do you not shoot first just to be safe? If you think they don't have a gun then you might just get away with a bit of threats of violence and some mild assault instead of committing a murder.

I mean if you are ready to use a lethal force people tend to respond in kind.

i agree, but they're challenging the narrative that the shooter in the above narrative isn't trained well enough to shoot any or many of those 10 people- therefore they can act accordingly to eliminate the threat. the idea here is that legal citizens (patriots) are armed and trained, then the shooter (most likely illegal and untrained) won't stand a chance and will most likely be on a suicide mission. this line of thinking is usually supported by NRA statics showing how many crimes are stopped by gun owners

I'm convinced this is the rise of modern day fascism... Herds of stupid (and even many non-stupid) people believing dangerous propaganda and spreading their ignorance, putting lives at risk, in effect, systematically killing people all in the name of the dear leader's maniacal vision and science-denying fury, all while blaming a single group (the left) for the world's ills.

We need to stamp this INSANITY out before these people go further, the situation we are in us fucked in every way. If Trump gets re-elected, there's no chance.

For real. People have let their emotions and their insane anti-intellectualism blind them.

this is the most terrifying and hilarious thing I've seen this year, sums up where we are mid-2020 perfectly, it doesn't look remotely real. it looks like a contrived effort to create a meme and not what it actually is - delusional armed white privileged unmasked and open toed 

their firearms handling is atrocious too - I'm shocked they didn't shoot each other
