right. because tossing bombs around is nowhere near as harmful as peacefully practicing a religion.

AMD's new Threadripper CPU is utterly destroying Intel's offerings in the Cadillac of desktop segments.

There are trade-offs in the design not unlike the trade-offs between the normal Ryzen CPU and Intel's, but if you're in the market that needs 16 cores and 32 threads then it's almost certainly your top pick.

There was a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia today. Counter-protestors lined up to demonstrate against them. The rally was dispersed amid minor skirmishes and the governor of Virginia declared a state of emergency to mobilize the police and try to restore calm.
Then more than a dozen of the counter-demonstrators were run over by a car, killing at least one of them. The driver is in custody.

I haven't seen anymore about this in the news, so hopefully my friends had misheard. But I mean yeah. I got a cold chill through my entire body when the very first reports came in.

Over here, the official tally is one protester in the crowd hit by the terrorist, and two police officers who went down in a helicopter crash as they were monitoring the terrorists.

ugh, one of the fucksticks they've identified is from the town i'm living in now. i don't know him at all.

gossip has run wild though, according to the grapevine he's just as much of a disgusting garbage person as you'd think.

i hate this. i hate feeling powerless. i hate this so much.

There was a post on reddit yesterday about an american going to germany getting beaten up for doing the nazi salute. A whole bunch of idiots were saying that people who punch nazis are just as bad as the nazis. They said this not even a day after a nazi rammed into people with a car for protesting against them. To anyone who still thinks that antifa is just the opposite side of the same coin here's a quote from a redditor who points out the difference between the two.

Quote:
People fascists want to use violence against:

• Black people
• Muslims
• Jewish people
• Gypsies
• Slavs
• Homosexual people
• Transgender people
• Disabled people
• Feminists
• Left wingers
• Right wingers who aren't right wing enough

People antifa want to use violence against:

• Fascists


The fact that some people think that those who hate bigotry with a passion are just as bad as the bigots themselves especially after a nazi mowed people down with a car is fucking sickening.

i hadn't seen any pictures of the rally, and after hearing them described on the news, i don't want to.

the greatest generation must be rolling over in their graves, to see their grandchildren supporting the very people they fought. I just got an email from a friend; he's a naturalized citizen originally from italy. he is in europe right now, says he visited dachau 4 days ago, and the subject of his email is "is our democracy in danger?"....because he sees trump following in hitler's footsteps (and with the same followers). i'm going to point out all the people actively protesting this...but really, how did we get here? and how do we deal with this people? terry mcauliffe was on the radio this am, he said the white supremacists were better armed than the police, with body armor and automatic weapons. any bets that the NRA dupes in congress will point out how this is exactly what the second amendment is for, to protect people's rights to protest the government? how do you get rid of people like that?

I have seen pictures; a bunch of bros in polo shirts carrying tiki torches to a night rally. Now I can't even sell mosquito defense products at work without wondering if the people buying it understand why I'm trying not to visibly side-eye them.
