    Do they have rules limiting masturbation and viewing pornography because sexual frustration makes them angrier, and therefore even Prouder Boys?

    When I see angry right wingers, I automatically assume they are not getting laid and are not happy about it. It just fits.

    Yes, I must apologise for taking this thread in a direction you probably did not intend, but it was just too good a chance to resist. :D

    By the way, you do realise that the symbol of the Proud Boys is a cock, I presume.

    (Really - I'm not making this up.) :D

    Why would it matter? I'm not the one condemning people or entire groups.

    Sure Cooky. Whatever you say. Did you bother to do any research on them before you posted "a group of good, open-minded dads and schoolteachers"?


    Proud Boys: Who Are They? – Proud Boy Magazine

    More from their website...
    I think back to a time, a more pleasant time, a more wholesome time when people of a certain mental persuasion would be locked up and kept hidden away from the functioning world where they couldn’t poison society’s water with their dysfunctional views, thus turning the frigging liberals gay. Some of the more unruly residents of the asylums would be lobotomised in order for them to become more obedient. In an era where the insane are allowed to run rampant like an Ann Summers dildo, where is the mass lobotomisation of the far left?

    If this were to come to fruition, what would the endgame be? If you think about it, whole organisations like Antifa could be transformed into docile slaves ready to serve the sane and proud world. This could not be considered inhumane as they already live as slaves; they just serve the wrong masters. The modern slave is not bound by race or religion, they would be achieving everything they ever wanted, a multi-ethnic society of dribbling spastics working together to make the world more prosperous for us proud westerners.
    There's a lot more. But just this part shows they are ultra-homophobes who want to enslave gays.

    Oh, wait. Perhaps I shouldn't be taking their own words literally. Right, Cooky?

    I haven't commented on your posts, and you may have me mixed with another poster. Not sure what's happening, there.

    A Nazi, for historically practical purposes believes in strengthening the strong and eliminating the weak for the purpose of improving life for the survivors. They need not even be fascist. It is this evil to which I refer. Even so I don't call someone a Nazi unless they claim it for themselves. Its too loaded a word, and I think you can create Nazis just by calling people this. Some people attach themselves to emotional labels because they have a hypnotic draw. Better to call someone some other flashy name and get them involved in some other movement that will benefit them more. If these guys want to call themselves Proud Boys then that's actually better than Nazi, and as long as they don't believe in Nazi principles they are far better than Nazis.

    Oh, please. You've done so with atheists, BLM protesters, anyone on the left, etc.

    But it's okay, you don't have to keep slurping. You can let go now and move past it. Leave Trumpus and embrace Jesus.

    Antifa is decentralized. It has no organization or leadership. Any random person can declare themselves "antifa". And as has been repeatedly stated, the vast majority on the left condemn looting, vandalism, rioting, violence, etc. Of course the right likes to create false narratives to spoonfeed to the choir.

    Isn't bearing false witness a sin? Aren't you worried about eternal damnation?
    The "Proud Boys" have criminal records with multiple law enforcement agencies. Now you have two opposing sets of boots and you can't lick both.

    Yes, useful analysis, even with some new details not yet predictable from the great BBC video.

    Suspecting evil hidden plans/tricks of others is built into the human brain. It's a survival adantage to be vigilant and detect attacks early...

    But the natural brain function, stronger in some people than others, can be too strong, of course, as it's very often, mostly the situation instead --

    Usually there is no evil plan, and most bad actions we see turn out to be just pure incompetence or ignorance instead of intentional.

    Few bad actors are actually evil plotters.... The amusing or tragic reality is instead they are just incompetent or ignorant -- Not the sharpest tools in the shed.

    I've seen Trump over and over in the 1990s while I stayed in NYCity many months altogether during the decade, and Trump always was managing to make the local news...

    If you watched local news on a given evening, it would be surprising back then for Trump not to be in the news segment.

    Trump will do whatever it takes to grab attention.

    He's a gifted salesman.

    He's good at invention -- narratives/appearances. (fake stuff actually(!))

    And that's why Trump accuses others of fake news -- it's a psychological transference/compensation: Trump accuses others of being fake because, and only because he himself is faking things constantly.

    And we all saw more of Trump during 2000s and 2010s.

    What do we see?

    A clear tendency to going too far into paranoid or conspiracy explanations, and/or using such to grab more attention.

    So, when Trump says something...well, hold on to your wallet!
