After reading many of Cole's posts, I think they may be onto something with many of their constituents.



The left wants to focus on statues, Dr. Seuss, men taking shits in womens bathrooms, the gender of Mr. Potato Head, making sure that only white ethnic groups are represented as sports mascots, and making sure that their kids only see white fictional spokespeople when they go to a grocery store. The left doesn't even care about most of this stuff. They do it to troll people. Up to this point, the right hasn't really engaged in this type of activity but don't be surprised when the right tries to troll you by targeting childrens books with reference to trans-people or something like that.


The right wasn't so enthusiastic about individual rights when athletes took a knee, interesting turn around. As far as bathrooms, Seuss and Potato heads, I've only seen the right freaking out about that stuff. Open a can of it, really gets the dogs barking.

This use of “communism” to mean anything perceived as antithetical to white, conservative christianity, rather than communism in a Marxist sense is quite old. It’s coherent in its own right wing context, but sounds very stupid outside of it.

All that free speech? Ask Cheney about it.

I supported the right of athletes to take a knee but their employers are still their employers. I can't go to work and tell my boss that I have decided I'm going to start giving the middle finger to paying customers as part of a political thing and expect them to be cool with that.

Yeah, you are seeing the right react to it because liberal trolls put it out there. It is rage-bait. I honestly don't care that much right now about the books. I'm going to be pissed when it happens to the left regarding something they hold dear and we have hear the the caterwauling that is sure to ensue. If you guys support normalizing this type of action then
when it eventually happens to you, you can't be shocked or come with the "OH, HOW DARE YOU!!!"s without everyone looking at you like a complete f'ing fool.

Do you support the right of a manufacturer to manufacture the product they think appeals to customers, or not manufacture a product that they think would be offensive?

Does doing that violate the rights of the customer who desires the offensive product?

Lets be real, the things you see being done aren't being done for moral reasons, they are being done for economic ones. Educated and intelligent people don't buy children's books that feature characters referred to as "Chinamen".

Elect all the trumps you want, the right is still losing the culture war.

Are these the same "liberal trolls" that invaded the Capitol? Is Tucker Carlson a liberal troll?

Has a single Liberal on this board mentioned anything about Trans people, books, red cups, Potato Heads or anything of the kind? Nope, not a single time.

It's all Republicans.

Really? That's BS. I saw peaceful protesters exercising their 1A rights gassed. You are fucking loony Q




All these people who told us that Trump was a Russian spy for 4 years and were so eager to jump onboard with the Smullet debacle and tried to tell everyone that a handle for garage door at a Nascar event was supposed to be a noose really make me laugh when they run around accusing everyone of being conspiracy theorists. It is as if you honestly don't see how stupid you look.

I challenge you to find anything about me saying something about trump/russia. The only thing I did that is post a smolllett story, I claimed nothing. It's qotards and dotards still looking stupid as ever. How's inauguration day go today for you, Q?

The Biden admin has more accomplishment in 2 months than trump could muster in 48 months. trump basically quit - he' a loser that bankrupts/fails everything he touches.

"Tell me if I'm missing something. Dr. Seuss Enterprises LP decided it didn't want to print books it thinks are offensive, and people have responded in protest by buying tons of books and further enriching Dr. Seuss Enterprises LP. Not sure about this protest strategy."

I'm not sure how to get this through your thick skull, but nothing was banned, the producers of the books did it on their own accord.

Say it with me three times:

Nothing was banned, the publisher did it.

Nothing was banned, the publisher did it.

Nothing was banned, the publisher did it.

Now this one:

It was not the government.

It was not the government.

It was not the government.

Got it now?

No, of course you don't. Dope.
