    "Law and Order", lots of places have had that, Russia, North Korea, Saddam's Iraq.
    Laws can be made to enforce order of cruelty and brutality.
    Equality and Justice, that is how you have peace and a society that benefits all.

    Overall the point is they already changed the source material to be more “woke”. Evolving with the times is a necessity for a business to thrive.

    In French, "glass" is "verre". But "vair" is an Old French word for "fur", particularly multicolored furs. It's practically certain it was originally a fur slipper, but then a shitty English translator fucked up the translation.
    Curiously, in the German original it's merely described as a gilded slipper, first one being silk and brockade, second was not mentioned as far as I can see.

    Edit: Just looked at "an" English translation: "Then a dress fell down, and it was even more glorious and splendid than the previous one. It was made out of gold and precious gems. In addition there were golden gusseted stockings and gold slippers."

    That's based on a 1937 edition/translation. I suspect the glass slipper may actually be a Disney invention entirely.

    Lunatic rambling aside, these "evil institutions" only embrace this stuff when it's politically convenient to do so. Disney's not going to be out there with rainbow flags and trans characters if the majority of the population opposes those things, and so wouldn't buy their merch with that stuff attached to it. It's only because of the work of the boogeymen you listed (and the general acceptance of their ideas among their potential customers) that companies like Disney will promote this stuff...not the other way around. Fucking obviously.

    My eyes usually just glaze over and then conveniently ignore their nonsensical posts...but the bait on that one was too much. My bad.

    On MMO-C we learn that Anti-Fascism is locking arms with corporations, the State Department and agreeing with the CIA, But opposing the CIA and corporate America, and thinking Jews have a right to buy land and can expect tenants to pay rent THAT is ultra-Fash Nazism. Bellingcat is an MI6/CIA cut out. Clyburn Truther.

    I always like to wonder which of her characters was the one who stated the violent fantasies of murdering liberals Pinochet style. Think it was the one riding Trump's dick or the one sucking off Quilette and the IDW?

    They have "no trouble" bringing in the things people have been fighting for them to bring in NOW. But they didn't bring those things into the boardroom, etc 10 years ago.

    How do you think they got from Point A to Point B?

    It's Theo. "CIA Conspiracy and Soros Money" is obviously the answer.

    I can't really pick out any details, so I don't like this one very much. The only one I can find is that the horses on the socialism-go-round are donkeys.

    Oh well, if Ben's having fun, that's what counts.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    People as me, "Milchy why do you make these threads?"

    These are basically like a PSA. Reminding people that conservatives are only talking about socialized medicine, unemployment insurance, etc in an effort to to concern troll people.

    Civil Rights and other minority issues are the great acid test, that always reveals their true nature.

    If someone's doing something, conservatives are bawling their eyes out about it. There has never been a group of whinier snowflakes outside of a preschool.

    Next, someone's going to complain about Disney trying to hide "Song of the South."

    Song of the South is also just a very boring movie, outside of James Baskett who plays Uncle Remus everyone else is just like watching paint dry. The moral of the story is to not be prejudice, to come together and not judge others so quickly... I think Disney's heart was in the right place in making this movie, but the execution was very tone deaf, like slavery is hardly brought up despite that it takes place on a plantation, and there are some cringing moments like when they say words like tar baby, just everything is way too chipper. ITs a good hearted story told on the back of a horrible place and time.

    Not to mention that the theater that Disney chose to first screen Song of the South in, in Georgia for "historical tribute to the uncle Remus stories," was still segregated, such that James Baskett couldn't attend the premiere of the film in which he was the main character

    "Tone-deaf" sums it up pretty well.

    Being against woke culture has become an industry over the past several years despite the term being nonsense to begin with. Right wingers want to be angry at "others" and will scrape together any reason to keep it going.

    For some it probably is more about profit, though. A lot of scammers want to be the next limbaugh, or I guess at this point the next shapiro. Just stir up enough shit day after day to keep the audience pissed and scared while collecting the money.

    I made the mistake of clicking on a YT video where someone was ranting about female superheroes and later on was treated to a few thousand extra suggestions for videos of angry white dudes hating on women in general. They're all trying to make a buck off of manufactured hate. Although, I shouldn't label them all as angry white dudes. The proven method of shit stirring while mix-matching race/gender is in play here too. Some women and non-white guys have figured out they can get a lot of extra views this way.

    this subforum (Gen-OT, before "politics" was made) used to be an absolute cesspit of that kind of stuff. just go to the books/movies/games section if you wanna see it still in action.
