Gun Nazi rhetoric 

Yeah what's going on with that overpopulation talk?

If you think you can't do something because it's "for kids", then you've let the fun police take your sense of fun from you. Pillow forts never stopped being fun. Playing pretend with plushies never stopped being fun. Running around in the dark never stopped being fun

Taking the opportunity to read about the windows filesystem and omfg what a mess lmao

Big fan of the magic prefix \\?\, which allows you to discuss paths longer than the maximum 260-character path limit (which i guess is a soft-limit, and you can even change the limit nowadays) and create illegal filenames such as . and ..

Or paths that are missing their initial \ like C:..\test

uspol 

so now twelve members of the National Guard have been removed from duty ahead of the inauguration tomorrow because of ties to white supremacy groups...

...but they were absolutely a-ok with them being part of the National Guard before last week.

If you think racist white supremacy bullshit isn't protected by the USian government at this point I am not sure what it'll take to convince you.

debunking some recent "news" about Parler in the west 

You may be seeing headlines that say shit like "Parler is back thanks to this Russian company" or it may be more explicitly russophobic and just say "by Kremlin-linked company" etc.

Fact check: Here's what is actually going on now.
1. Parler has a landing page back up, not their social service.
2. A company called DDOSGuard (which is physically located in Russia, but provides services to anyone with money including many fascists) starts providing them a DDOS protection service (not actually hosting the site, but hiding their ip and taking the bulk of network attacks aimed at them).
3. Western media is more upset that they are Russian than the fact that they are aiding fascists.

Anglosphere journalism sees the word Russia in 2021 and still can't help but start foaming at the mouth and start accusing everything of being a Russian conspiracy. Because they can't conceptualize white supremacy as being a real inside threat to their society, despite their society being steeped in it.

fuck DDOS-Guard but because they provide services to fascists, not because they're ethnically fucking Russian ffs
