And so, in the wake of yet another subhuman scumbag murdering innocents while hopped up on government-approved psychotropic drugs, what does the nation turn to?
Debating the wisdom of force-feeding what used to be street drugs to children down to the age of 6? Perhaps the wisdom of kicking all of the terminal nutcases out on the streets in the name of “personal liberty?”
No. Surely you jest. That would be entirely too logical, not to mention inconvenient in case we end up drawing all of the “wrong” conclusions about our so-called government’s innumerable legislative criminal fuckups.
What this nation clearly needs to stop drug-addled nutcases from shooting up innocent churchgoers is a ban on the Confederate battle flag. THAT will solve everything!
So weak-kneed, spineless coward after weak-kneed, mewling coward politician has backed down and started tearing down and outlawing a piece of U.S. history in the name of whatever the Hades they’re doing it in the name of. Perhaps their pagan gods have promised them that they’ll ban murder if they offer them just one more sacrifice on the altar of censorship and oppression?
And Amazon and Walmart have already joined ranks with the superstitious cave dwellers, banning all sales of the offending, apparently lethal flag from their stores.
Never to be outdone, the Church of Apple have also bowed down to the gods of idiocy and pulled all games with the Southern Cross in them. Which is to say any and all games depicting the War of Northern Aggression, since to allow such a flag in such a game would clearly be
historically accurate raycisss and immediately cause another shooting.
That last one strikes a particular note with His Imperial Majesty since he likes to play historical war games and has, for ages, been mildly annoyed at having to mod every single one taking place in WWII since developers can’t allow swastikas in them. They wouldn’t be allowed to sell them in Germany if they did, you see, because any depiction of a swastika is illegal in that lovely, “free” euro-socialist country. So you either have to grit your teeth while playing, say, a WWII flight simulator where the German planes are all adorned with whatever replacement symbol the developers could get past the jackbooted German censors, or mod history back into what’s supposed to be a historical simulator.
We used to make fun of that, but now that the idiocy has come to the nation formerly known as “the land of the free”, it’s not quite as amusing anymore.
“So what? Who really cares about whether or not some symbol is left out of a simulator? Big whooping deal, get over yourselves”, I hear some cry, but it really isn’t a “small issue” in any way. Because what’s next? Well, how about Company of Heroes 2 being banned in Russia because it depicted the Soviet commissars on the Eastern Front in WWII as being “too brutal”?
Yes, we’ll wait for you to quit laughing/picking your jaws up off the floor. Some of the most murderous, subhuman swine in all of human history were being depicted “unfairly” by showing them ordering poorly armed troops into the jaws of waiting machine gun fire, because that surely never happened, and *poof*, a market gone for a major game developer.
Unless, of course, they were to somehow “modify” history in order to placate those who are all too offended by history as it was. Guess what they’re going to do eventually?
You get three guesses, and the first two don’t count. Remember the ban on swastikas in WWII games? They didn’t happen because UbiSoft believes in the primitive superstitions of “politicians” that somehow seeing a swastika on an Me-109 is going to make somebody build a concentration camp in their back yard. They happened because Germany is a big market, and it’s a foolish business who deliberately makes their product unsaleable in such a market.
“But it’s just GAMES, you nerd!”
Sure they are, though I resent the use of the word “just”, o convenient fictional dissenter. I’d like to see you even get a historically accurately modeled Me-109 off the ground or even get through the pre-flight checklist before setting it on fire.
But where do you think today’s youngsters get a huge part of their knowledge about history from? Public Skools? Majors in Gender Studies from our neo-Marxist bastions of “higher” learning?
And even if you DO believe that the younguns are still getting accurate information from those PC halls of indoctrination in good-think, who’s to say that they aren’t next in line for a once over with the fascist airbrush of censorship?
Best of luck with that childish faith in the fascists who would be our overlords.
Hmmm… We get a sudden urge to go buy two dozen Confederate battle flags from one of the vendors who still haven’t bowed down to their new masters. Just because we can.
In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. George Orwell,… Read more »
Kinfolk of Lighthorse Harry and Robert E. Lee here, which I expect to be grounds soon for one of the most ironic lynchings in history. Of course ban the Confederate Battle Flag! That’s our one main objective! And guns. Our TWO Main targets for removal from society are CSA battle emblems, guns, and video games. THREE!! Our Three primary problems… Read more »
There seems to be some confusion locally (& elsewhere) between said Stars and Bars & the Southern Cross/battle flag.
I’ve seen a couple of those “conspiracy theory” things out there, pretty uniform actually, that the shooter was actually a Marine/actor of another name than Dylann Roof. And it’s rather hard to overlook the distance traveled and the number of other Churches passed enroute to this particular one where the pastor just also happened to be a state senator. Like… Read more »
Where I finally had my fill of this bullshit was when the Visitor Center at Gettysburg….GETTYSBURG…..where a minor skirmish in the war of Northern aggression was fought decided to ban merchandise that had only the “Confederate flag” on it. That was enough, and that was when I got loud. I fought with everyone and anyone who thought the Stars and… Read more »
need an edit button that works….or I need to slow down a bit.
The Stars and Bars is not the Confederate battle flag. Xystus has it right, it’s the Southern Cross……
and then there’s this:
You’re….it’s spelled you’re

Oops… I’ll correct that
1984? I prefer Orwell’s Animal Farm, and of course, head piggy Shrillary. Much more appropriate image (and funnier IMHO) than Winston’s overseers.
Today, the Supreme Sewer decreed that you DON’T HAVE TO BE A CITIZEN TO VOTE. Isn’t that … special. Christians are under attack in New York and other Marxist hellholes. They’re slavering to attach churches’ finances (always perilous in Manhattan at best) and get rid of us all, hurt and cripple us. Which made me think of something the Master… Read more »
Jesus also said this (Matthew, Chapter 10): And when ye come into an house, salute it. 13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or… Read more »
The REAL underlying reason the Leftists hate the South so much is that we still cling to God and the Bible. Need I say more? The things they complain of ended 150 and over 50 years ago, respectively. These are excuses. The real hate is hatred of God and His moral commandments. (I ain’t no saint; but the Book says… Read more »
Holy Shit, Fapman! I pig just flew by riding a broken clock!
Not sure why wargames would use swastikas in depicting WWII units anyway; the actual planes, tanks, etc. primarily used the balkankreuz, not the swastika, as identifying marks.
