    Every single word, multiple times.
    And you honestly don't see any merit in anything I'm suggesting? War is literally the absolute only option, in your opinion?

    Hopefully not war. But I believe we have to take and choose a side in this struggle. I've chosen mine. The one that's agains neo Nazis and bigotry. That's the only moral side to be on.

    After the "fight" we can then talk about ways to make sure it doesn't happen again. But now is not the time to listen and discuss. It's the time for action.

    Right now in America there are neo Nazis who are wearing a uniform fashioned after Trump's golf clothes and using a hand gesture he makes as a gang sign. You can sometimes win an argument with a smart person but you can never win an argument with a stupid person. Those people are stupid. They haven't earned the right to be heard.

    Okay, so you've chosen your side, but if you say not war, and I noticed you even put quotations around the word fight, then what action is it that you suggest should be taken in this struggle?

    That would be the hyperbolic one. Come on, Duke. At least put the effort in your grammar if you're going to poke fun!

    Something specific I've been doing is giving money to the community bail funds of black people being arrested for protesting and/or beating up alt-right people.

    Here's the legal fund for the people who were arrested for vandalizing the statue in Durham: http://Durhamsolidaritycenter.org/bondfund

    Here's the fund for Charlottesville antifa activism: https://fundly.com/solidarity-c-vill...ist-legal-fund

    Not directly related to the current fight, but last week my partner and I just threw a fundraiser for these folks: https://brooklynbailfund.org. This is to help poor people in my community get out of jail when they're arrested, no strings attached. Raised a really good amount! We actually got married that morning and told everyone the fundraiser is the reception, lol. We insisted that our guests bring cash instead of gifts. I'm including it here in case some of you want to pitch in, too.

    Anyway, I'm still kind of ticked off that the Tiki torch photos are the ones that went viral and get shown on television as an example of the Charlottesvilles white supremacists. I get that it's funny. It really was. And I think it's significant to ridicule these people any way you can.

    But it's also harmful that when the city's residents were trying to explain that the city was under siege, the image that pops into most people's heads are those dorks in golf shirts armed with Lowe's products. When really, they're talking about the squad of racists that showed up in their town looking like this:

    I cant tell people how to display their protest. I mentioned what I do now a few posts earlier and what I would do if things got worst a little later. What you do is up to you.

    This isn't a situation that happened overnight, is what I'm saying. What's happening right now has been brewing for a number of years now. And in that time, both the left and the right have become more and more extremist in their views, and more and more vile towards one another as a result of that..
    What views do you think the American left hold that are extreme? Curious as a foreigner. The Democrats had a pretty right-wing candidate this last election.

    You plan on opening your house for those in need is equivalent to "fight"? That seems more like reaction than action and still doesn't answer the question. Doing your part, OK. But it's not going to resolve anything.

    That's not a machine gun. That's a semi automatic rifle.
    Go out for a dinner still dressed like you're in your living room. You wear those big, you wear those big hippity hoppity clown shoes and you speak to women terribly. You treat them despicably. You hurt harmless dogs that can't even defend themselves. I'm tired of you man. I'm tired of you, you embarrass me.

    The tall guy with the sunglasses looks like he had a Carbine. Wasn't looking at the AR-15.

    I'll bet vital parts of my anatomy that it's a semi automatic rifle.

    No you're probably correct.

    Doesn't make me want a carbine any less, which is what I was referring to in the first place; Gun semantics aside.

    If you seriously want one, and the local gun shops don't have any, check out gunsamerica.com. You'll just need to have it shipped to a FFL and pay a transfer fee, usually around 50 bucks. Any questions, shoot me a message.

    Heh, I can't afford one right now. I'm finishing up a house rehab project. Granite measuring people are coming over today actually. But I'll keep that in mind. <3

    As a guy who's seen Scar's gun collection, I would recommend that if Scar says it's an automatic rifle and not a machine gun, just accept it as fact.
