    While I’m in none of these groups, having survived the rock’n roll-, black mass- / satanic(1)-, killer videogame-, terrorism-, social justice- / SJW-, safe space-, socialism-/communism-, antifa-, cabal-, satanic(2)-, CRT- and woke-panic, I feel underrepresented.

    See they’re barking up the wrong tree with gays and trans. No middle class conservative white family ever had their kid sit them down and say “mom, dad, I’m black”

    Actually, 2020 was the Chinese and county clerks (who typically handle elections). 2023 was trans people and librarians.

    Turns out bigots can multitask.

      God, I remembered Asian hate. I remembered getting yelled at in Chinatown by a bunch of black people. Yo, we are sorta on the same team man. I didn’t create covid. I’m just here trying to survive, just like you.

    This is actually quite progressive. For decades they only blamed blacks, then also a few decades gays and “communists”. And now they actually have a new thing every year. They are moving forward with society, always staying up to date. It’s like conservatism, but for the fresh cool kids.

      We’re still getting blamed often. I haven’t in a month or two, but normally I listen to a podcast called Knowledge Fight which critically analyzes Alex Jones and a few similar grifters in a taking them in full context way(generally outlets miss the truly heinous stuff Jones says for quick soundbites, and he uses it as a defense to his audience).

      Now you may think ol AJ isn’t relevant, but you still see right wing talking points come either early on his show or he repeats them quickly. He keeps basically a “rogues gallery” of people to blame for whatever, and BLM, Jessie Smollet, Obama aren’t always on the list, but at least one of them shows back up monthly, along with Antifa, Soros, Klaus Schwab, communism, Bill Gates, vaccines, trans people, gay people, China, etc

      It’s not that they stopped blaming black people (and never stopped blaming queer people), it’s that they have so many buzz words to swap us out on rotation. They haven’t forgotten though. They still hate us.

      My parents listened to conservative talk radio non-stop when I was a kid. I still remember listening to Micheal Savage scream about small meatballs at the restaurant being a liberal conspiracy and knowing how full of shit he was. I was about 11.

    Little did they expect the black, gay, trans Muslim, with Chinese heritage, who was a former MS13 member, but who also got out of it and pulled themselves up by their bootstraps to start a career in science.

    Panic grips the RNC, people screaming, foaming at the mouth, scrawling “the end is near” in the blood of an intern on the wall. Pure chaos.

          Not really, they pay top dollah for thinktanks to come up with the perfect group du jour to persecute. It’s actually scary in a Mike Tyson first round knockout sense how effective they are. I mean we have a coin flip chance of electing a leader who calls upon our enemies to attack our allies. That’s a very, very good return on investment for whoever would stand to benefit from such a thing.

    Gays got pounded even before 2016. W and his marry men of assholes were going after gays and gay marriage during his term.

    Actually now that I think about it I’m pretty sure Republicans were scapegoating gays as far back as Reagan.

      Yeah whoever made this is young. The anti gay rhetoric was so much worse 1970-2000. Obama was against gay marriage in 2008.

      Before 1970 it was barely controversial and everyone thought being gay was a literal mental disorder. Famous actor Rock Hudson had a sham marriage to a woman in 1955 because it couldn’t publicly seem too likely he was gay or it would ruin his career. He later got AIDS and asked his friend Ronald Reagan to save his life in 1985 but was rejected because helping a dying gay friend survive was seen as too politically controversial.

      Calling any year when gay marriage was legal nationwide the bad year for gay people is absurd.

      I’ve been thinking about it and it doesn’t really qualify as a shitpost to me either, but I’m going to let it stay for now unless it turns into a complete clusterfuck. @GhostFence@lemmy.world, this isn’t really in the spirit of this community. A list of people Conservatives have fearmongered with isn’t especially amusing, which is kind of the point around here.

        One thing I wish would have died with Reddit is this adamant OCD of “putting everything exactly where it belongs, and only one time until the end of time”. What if a post is both “wtf” and “shitpost” at the same time? You wouldn’t be able to post it to either because both would theoretically reject it as not belonging there. It would be trivial to find a reason for every single post made to this sublemmy to be removed because it violated some minute nuance of some kind of Platonic ideal form of “shitpost”.

        Anyone who has ever tried to micro-organize a whole ocean of things ranging from files on a HDD to the complete stock of a supermarket will know being rigidly committed to a strict definition based structure is unfeasible and a completely non-working model.

            First off you are just avoiding answering the actual points.

            Secondly, you are illustrating the very issue with your answer. Let’s say I disagree. I might not, actually, but let’s say. Is there really an objective end to the discussion, or does it all just come down to personal preference? How many users have we got here, a couple of thousand? We are all going to disagree on the details, always.

            My point is that it’s a shit system, and only encourages this type of nonsense argumentation in the comments of whether something belongs in the red box or in the blue box. It’s busywork for the simple minded.

      Discovery was IMHO the most inferior Star Trek, but they nailed this idea when they described the Terran empire. This strong, incontrovertibly evil, imperial monster was born of, and lives on fear. A version of humanity that gave up on trust or hope and became the worst version of themselves.

    Yeah it’s always the same. In Utah this past week, the passed a law to disallow trans people from using public bathrooms. I mean,t here’s probably TWO trans people in the whole state. Now, one of the women on our Board of Education is in trouble for harrassing a student over possibly being trans (the student isn’t trans, she just thought she might be).

    What the FUCK is the problem? I’ve never seen trans people be a threat to ANYBODY ANYWHERE - yet, white moronic privileged idiots are threatening all of us with blocking all of our basic rights to exist. It seems to me the real threat to humanity is wherever bigoted white people gather together.

          No. I read somewhere trans people make up roughly 1% of a given population, I think that number was from a time with higher persecution, because in some places the numbers are higher AFAIK.

      The secret ingredient is 24/7 propaganda.

      I can probably make you hate basically anything I can come up with if I can get a 24/7 stream straight into your earcanal. You are just as susceptible as anyone else, and you likely hold beliefs right now that came from some of the very same outlets. Just as hard a time as you have seeing that this is the actual case, is just as hard as the people believing this fringe shit right here have.

      Human psychology is fantastically malleable, and contrary to popular opinion, we have a very good grasp on how the mind works.

      It’s not just white people but I get what you mean. So much of politics is performative/culture wars. What always irks me is that behind closed doors some of them are gay or have had abortions privately or something else but they go on acting as though it’s the end of the world publicly.
