    I don't necessarily agree with the tactics of antifa but the notion that they are more dangerous than the white supremacist movement is nonsense.
    Did hell freeze over?

    How can we manage to agree on something?!

    Which culture would that be? Please be specific.

    Someone has never heard of Taco Bell. When "they" start closing down all the Taco Bell restaurants for cultural appropriation, I may concede your point.

    There is no lack of food trucks selling tacos here in St. Louis, and I know not all of them are owned by Mexicans. My favorite (and the favorite of many at my former employer) is Seoul Taco. They had been going strong for years, at least until the pandemic, the owner is Korean, not Mexican, yet they have not been shut down for cultural appropriation. I suspect there is something more going on with the taco truck you mention.

    No, it hasn't. Just go talk to Colin Kaepernick about that one. The right has just become ever more hypocritical about it. They started the whole damn thing, they have never stopped doing it, and now they are pissed that the blowback is starting to hit them. Well fuck them, people aren't tolerating their bullshit anymore, and that is a good thing. I will tell them to sit down and shut the fuck up if I damn well please, they have been telling me that for decades.

    Now it is the left enforcing pollical correctness in speech and action. If you say anything deemed offensive or insensitive you are off the air, look at recent TV events.
    Todays media landscape in no way resembles that of the early '60s, when three corporations controlled everything you saw on TV, and were pressured by right-wingers to censor absolutely everything. Then it was possible to cancel the media presence of a show like the Smothers Brothers. That is no longer possible, yet the same people who would have cancelled the Smothers Brothers in the early 60s are the ones who are now complaining loudly on Fox News about being cancelled. Hint: when you can air your views on the largest cable news station in the country, you aren't being cancelled.

    French fries were renamed "freedom fries" during the Iraq War, much like sauerkraut being renamed "liberty cabbage" in WWI.
    And that list is all very recent. Why don't we keep it going?

    This, and not past tense. They are actively and rigorously trying to cancel democracy in the U.S.
    The Authoritarians

    Donald Trump was the fat line of coke conservatives snorted, thinking it would boost their energy and weight loss. Now they're waking up in a cheap motel room, picking at their scabs and denying that they have a problem.
