Yeah the nativist movement here in LA is real great.
That guy - 2018-11-16
If you think the nativists at this rally aren't racial supremacists, then you haven't been around them at all.

Try not to willfully misrepresent what I'm saying here. I don't give a shit about the statue.

Cool strawman though, Marlon.

Lots of Nazi propaganda features Jews as all powerful enemies of the completely innocent German commoner (read: aryan)

That guy - 2018-11-17
SolRo you're a piece of shit. Truly.

SolRo - 2018-11-17
Oh no the racist hates me!

That guy - 2018-11-17
I'd love to hear how I'm a racist from a guy who only knows me from poetv, and engages in splitting every single chance he gets.


SolRo - 2018-11-17
I’m sure if I got to know you I’d find you to be a very well rounded and multifaceted racist.

That guy - 2018-11-17
HEY that sounds like pretty good evidence, d00d.

SolRo - 2018-11-17
So you’re not well rounded? Just another boring bigot being a boring troll?

That guy - 2018-11-18
ooh wow, even more evidence

can't argue with that

Accidie - 2018-11-16
yeah, this is a bunch of west coast lefties wanting in on the fun of tearing down statues.
This features "Chief Bob" on the drums i guarantee.
Marlon Brawndo - 2018-11-16
It's the statue of a man who cut people's tongues out.

Yeah, he's a great role model.

Fucking TIMBER.

Hard to know how to rate this.

On the one hand I whole-heartedly agree with tearing down the statue. Columbus may once have represented daring, the spirit of adventure, and tolerance of Italian Americans (not many generations ago they were the ones everyone was complaining about, claiming "they won't assimilate", the same nonsense you hear about Muslims now). Today it is very much a hurtful symbol to many. Tear it down.

But do I rate it a 5 because I approve of the action? A 1 because "not evil"? A 1 to indicate my displeasure at right-wingers putting this on here so that they can bawl and wet their nappies in public, or a 5 to rebut those very incels?

Is there any official PoEtv guidance for these cases? In the absence of such I'll give it a 3.

kingofthenothing - 2018-11-16
I don't know if POETV has many hard and fast guidelines. POE Red is dead, Poe-News, also dead. Who owns this site? How is PoeTV still even here? Are we living in a computer simulation?

Anyway, I just give stuff 5 most of the time. If I don't like something I usually don't rate it, unless it's total crap and needs that 1 star.

Accidie - 2018-11-16
notice it's the people living in LA one starring it?

Marlon Brawndo - 2018-11-16
Italian fragility?

Old_Zircon - 2018-11-16
There was a street rechristened in my town recently (it had previously been named after one of the state's foremost slave traders) and I was peripherally involved in the ceremony. Afterward, some of the members of the Black Student Initiative, who were far more involved in it, were talking about how here's nothing wrong with stuff like this but it's ultimately a hollow gesture that erases a shameful past without actually addressing anything substantial about the present, and at worst that sort of erasure can end up letting people forget things that shouldn't be forgotten.

I'm not 100% on board with that because I think these sorts of relics don't belong on public property, but they're not entirely wrong either.

I still 5 starred it because it triggers the right people but I don't see it as a big victory or anything.

I live in east LA county

SolRo - 2018-11-16
Just think of supporting things on the internet that nazis hate a small electronic punch to fascist faces.

garcet71283 - 2018-11-16
I too believe that we should tear down monuments that honor Italians.

Yep, this seems like a good idea.

MMhmm. 5 to counter the idiots overanalyzing.

I don't care about Columbus or his statue because I never got off school or work from his holiday, so fuck him.
Marlon Brawndo - 2018-11-17
Columbus never cared about me playing video games after school. Because he was a racist. Thank you.
