The persecution complex on these people is so profound and dumb I never really know how to react to it. Yea sure white Christian men literally control the government, police force, military, the majority of wealth and resources in this country but it is just so hard to be white and Christian because sometimes people don't respect your dominance over every aspect of our culture.and 2 others.

Have I not listened closely or to enough podcasts to pick up on their real names? I feel like I am not in the cool group anymore. Wait, was I ever?
They personally emailed all of the real fans with their full names and addresses
Hey @CretanBull congrats you guys no longer hold the belt for weirdest wet bag available at supermarkets

The far right loves to couch extremist rhetoric in soft sounding tones and imagery so at first glance they don't seem dangerous. It's all plausible deniability, like "we're just a fun social and drinking club" which helps both recruitment because it isn't as scary and to obfuscate what they're actually doing. Like you see all the Pepe the frog shit and a lot of the far right including Qanon people refer to each other as "fren" and "frens" as a baby talk way of saying friend. People instinctively know things like "Atomwaffen" or whatever are probably militant and bad. Imagine if the Proud Boys were called some scary Nordic or German sounding name, the national conversation including the president mentioning them specifically would have been very different.It's worth remembering the way people get recruited into something like this. It's (mostly) not a bunch of already radicalized people who were just lying around waiting to pick up guns, they get introduced with much softer rhetoric and are slowly introduced to extremist bullshit. It's part of why memes are such an effective tool for them.
This is either going to be a total train wreck or they're going to decimate the league. Should be exciting
Any Pradre love in Santa Cruz? They've been making moves this off-season, as well.
This place is somehow 100% A's fans. There are more A's fans on this board than I've ever heard call into local radio.
