    2. established a pattern of being dangerous to our democracy,
    3. been under investigation for bank fraud,
    4. violated TOU agreements with social media platforms.

    If you have some serious arguments for any of the above then lay them out. Personally, it scares me a bit that an organization such as CPAC, at the heart of one our two major parties, is administered by people who would choose to flaunt such an obvious symbol or white nationalism. But it's not an matter of free speech. We can't infringe on their right to say what they think. It's an issue of their veiled intent.
    They made a Nazi symbol. According to what I learned on Talk Freethought, that is never accidental. According to what I learned on Talk Freethought, people who do that deserve to be cancelled even though they haven't actually committed any crimes.

    Why are you defending Nazis?
    Back to my original question: What exactly do you intend for anyone to do in order to "cancel" them? What is this "action" you claim you were taught here that is required? Just come out and say it. And who is this NAZI you claim I'm defending?
    Okay. First, unbanked. For the last several years there has been a push for banks to stop doing business with gun shops, a completely and utterly legal business. It is getting harder and harder for legal gun shops to do their business because of the pressure on the banks to stop doing business with them. Second, the social media platforms have already established a precedent wherein people can be banned for what they do off platform. You don't have to be on the platform to do something bannable on the platform.

    Since it has been established on this forum that there is no accidental use of a symbol associated with Nazis, such as when people flash the "OK" symbol it is always a dog-whistle for White Power, there is no way the stage designer could have made that symbol by accident. Therefore she must have intentionally made that Nazi symbol. You know who intentionally makes Nazi symbols? Nazis.

    That this Nazi was also a Biden supporter only makes sense.

    This is transparently a deflection from the people who designed and commissioned the stage. I had never even heard of that perversion of the Odal rune before. And while I'm disappointed that ANYONE left of center worked with the C-PAC Nazis, I'm not shocked that they managed to slip a few dog-whistlings past "the help". Perhaps this should serve as an indication of why "cancel culture" is important: if you don't entirely cancel the Nazis, they will absolutely trick good people into helping them write messages of hate.
    Lots of dog-whistles in your post. No wonder then you defend the woman who made a Nazi symbol.
    No Biden, no KKK, no Fascist USA

    The word "know" has one silent k.
    The word "knuckle" has two silent k's.
    The word "Democrat" has three silent k's.

    I cite the existence of Jahryn, who can find dog-whistles in even the most innocuous statement.

    People want to let this lady go because she's a Biden supporter. That's no excuse. A Nazi that supports Biden is still a Nazi.

    If it happens once, then it always happens. If one liberal does or thinks something, then every liberal so does or thinks.

    This is called "colorful" right-wing diction. When pressed, they'll say their words are "entertainment" and not meant to be taken seriously.

    I just don't feel like playing into you playing dumb. You know just as well as I do who says things like that around here. If you want me to dig through post history, just say "dig through Jahryn's post history until you find examples of Jahryn saying that". Be honest in your request for support.

    Or you go and do it, since you also know it is there.

    Truth is stranger than fiction, and funnier than punchlines.

    Your reply is too absurd on too many levels.

    1. I don't remember anyone ever saying that here.

    2. Even if one person did say that, it would not make it "established on this forum."

    3. It's not my job to prove your claim, a claim I don't accept. If you want anyone to believe what you say, you go prove it.

    4. I have said the exact opposite of what you claim myself on this board and in a thread you participated in.

    By your loony logic, my post has established the opposite of what you claim.

    I'm not going to indulge you pretending that you are brand new to this forum and have never read any post by any other forum user.

    My recollection is at odds with yours. Imagine that. You can resolve this simply by stopping your stalling, and put up or shut up.
