No seriously, the Alt-Right gamers are cheering for old fucks who just a decade ago wanted all virtual interactive entertainment to be heavily censored or outright banned across the board.

The TERF situation is a bit murkier. While there are some who are happily aligning with the alt-right, others are balking at going that far. There was a brief trend - no idea if it’s still ongoing - on Twitter of “#notinmyname” of TERFs who were denouncing Neo-Nazis showing up at their “Protect Women” events.
As for their relation to capital-G “Gamers,” I think there’s a clash in personality there, even if they hate the same kinds of people.

Progressives need to start pushing back on the Alt-Right calling all Trans and Minorities “pedos” in a direct manner:
Like seriously, LGBTQ+ activists would have a goldmine of “every accusation is a confession” type counter insults to shove in the face of Nazi Trolls.

Attacking a fascist on an established position assumes they have one in the first place, they just don’t care.
They’re just going to say that it’s “Projection from the left” and laugh amongst themselves.
Wouldn’t be surprised if we hear down the line that the FBI flags anyone publicly pushing the whole “Oppressed minorities are pedos” bullshit while espousing performative religious dogma for CP since the Venn diagram for those two is pretty much a circle when it comes to projecting one’s own illegality.

Some Indian Astrology Dipshit is going on about WW3 starting very soon.
The world is rather unharmonious right now but I don’t see it escalating that much so soon.

When WW3 starts, it’ll probably catch everyone off-guard, like the previous two (because at the time, both in 1914 and 1939, there were few who could’ve imagined — or were even willing to entertain the notion — that an Autrichian archduke getting shot or Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union signing a non-aggression pact would lead to a clusterfuck of such proportions).

Currently, young men are required to manually register for the draft at 18, with some pretty stiff penalties for failing to do so. Automating the process makes things simpler for the government and easier on the kids. And the military is in no rush to reinstate the draft for real. They like having an all-volunteer force.

Depends. The official starting date for World War One was Austria-Hungary declaring war on Serbia on July 28, 1914 (one month after Franz Ferdinand’s assassination), while World War Two is considered to have begun with the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939 (despite Japan having launched their full-scale invasion of China two years prior — and occupying Manchuria for six years before that).
In both cases, those were the trigger events that, through prior alliances, led the rest of the main belligerents into the conflict — except for the US who, also in both cases, only got involved later.
Here, my best guess is that if Russia does something stupid that forces NATO to engage article 5 against them, this will be the starting date future historians will retain.

If you are a male between 18 and 26 and live in the United States of America and you haven’t registered, go to your local post office and they have all the forms you need. If you are over 18 and haven’t done that yet, they do not care. I’ll repeat myself: if you are years late registering but voluntarily comply, THEY. LIKE. IT. If they have to come and get you, they’re less happy.
@lonewolf
Good. I’m a huge fan of EVERYONE in a country registering to defend that country, and would be much happier if everyone had to spend at least 6 months either as an Army Civilian or as a part of the Strategic Reserve including at least 3 months of actual field service. I think everyone ELSE would be a lot happier too, and I do think USA would be much more UNITED.
I was an Army Civilian (specifically, GS-12 for both the Navy and the Marines). There’s no ‘Basic’ training, you won’t carry a weapon, and for the higher ranks you’re expected to be a professional already with either an advanced degree or equivalent experience.
I personally think every citizen should have at least some experience in their country’s defense - even if all they do is drive a bulldozer to clean up hurricane damage, clear firelanes in civilly owned forests, clean oil off birds in spills, act as a receptionist at some front desk, crunch numbers in some accounting room, or teach kids at a daycare for the children of service members. Here’s more information if anyone else is interested
For me, a big focus of my service was cartography. Creating PLAT maps from stereographic satellite images that probably are still in use today. There was no REQUIREMENT for me to do this - I did it voluntarily because it’s what people in my family do. But I’m glad I did - It set me up perfectly for college, and helped me enormously in my career. It’s experience that I’ve never forgotten, still lean heavily on in my daily work, and that I think everyone should have.
Later, I went back to the Army Civilian ranks, and did networking architecture for some folks. No one ever called me “SIR”, I got to observe some DEEPLY fascinating weapons but never had to carry one, didn’t have to wear a uniform, and was able to work as a part of some really incredibly competent, massively integrated, deliciously diverse, and capable teams. We did some amazing shit, including infrastructure for stuff like the Space Shuttle (yes, ma - my NDA has expired! HA HA HA I can talk about that now!)
2LDR: The point of all of this is that I got to see my hardware and code make it to space, and I was able to spend weeks PINGING THE FUCKING SHUTTLE IN FLIGHT! I’ve never made it to space, but that, for me, is close enough. Yee-freaking-haw. Semper Fi motherfuckers!
Sorry. I mean the point of all of this is that Starship Troopers is a really subpar novel with some really nieve ideas, but has some entertaining and interesting ideas so I don’t regret reading it 6 stars out of 10.
Again: Male citizen of the USA and between 18 and 26? Get to the post office. They’ll DEMOCRACY you right up.

Wow, what a non-surprise!
Dallas-area megachurch pastor Robert Morris admitted to “inappropriate sexual behavior with a young lady” in the 1980s after a woman accused him of molesting her when she was 12 years old, according to a statement obtained by CNN affiliate WFAA.
The woman, Cindy Clemishire, told WFAA the abuse started on Christmas Day in 1982 and continued until 1987, when she told her parents. The Wartburg Watch, a church watchdog blog, first reported her account Friday.

During the weekend, Trump half a “Blacks for Trump” rally at a Black Church in Detroit.
I’ll give you 3 guesses as to what was the majority of attendee’s skin colour was and the first 2 don’t count

Also to show how much Trump and his supports show how they “care” so much about Black people, Toiler Paer USA held a convention the day after that Trump was a guest at, and also had Charlie Kirk proudly boasting a “White Boy Summer” flag (A term that’s been a dog whistle amoungest the far-right crowd)
