The short answer? Racism. The right has seen how well xenophobia has worked in the US, and they’re taking pages from playbook. All in the name of the almighty dollar, I suspect.
That's a handy tip!
Ugh, I miss Swears. They made such fun platforms. New Rock still does and so does Demonia (I love their platform May Janes with the star cutouts), but they’re kind of a different vibe. It makes me feel like we need to go back to the early 90s and make our own platforms again. I used to see people show up at parties in…
We have the CFL up here. I don't know if they'd want the competition. We love basketball and hockey up here, but more people are into soccer than football. It might be a tough sell, having a team in Toronto. Hamilton might have a better market though. They love their Ti-Cats.
As a Torontonian, most people here don't give a shit too much about NFL. There are some fans, but they're not Bills fans, so moving the Bills up here would be a non-starter. And I don't know how much pull the CFL would have, but they'd push back against market competition. Our mayor would welcome the cash injection,…
And an asshole. Making fun of a 90 year old woman, real class move.
I think if the right gets into power up here in Canada, I wouldn't be surprised to see something similar happen. Our right seems to be taking their cues from the US, which is pretty fucking scary, I must say.
That still doesn't make it okay.
Fair enough. It's not an excuse as you say, but I'll make note of it in the future.
Haha, yes. All those years ago /sings
Ok, but if he's trying to use that as an excuse, autism doesn't make you a douche. It makes you particular. Not the same thing.
Not an American, but is there no law against employers compelling politics that way?
That's a good point! I like my accessories fairly simple, but that serves more than just my purposes :)
Stands to reason. Her purses probably cost more than my mortgage payments.
Me too, but just remember, not all tomatoes ;)
I don’t. I was on Jez more back then and I think they were getting that horrible rape gif onslaught at the same time, so that’s what’s stuck in my memory :/
Tomatoface was the original incarnation, and once that got shut down, he started using names with references to tomatoes. Different breeds and hybrids. Then it seems he dropped the tomato theme and just went with whatever worked, but always the same shit stirring tone of pseudo-intellectualism. It’s been going on for…
You're very welcome! In all honesty, it was actually a Kinja deals ad that brought it to my attention, so it's only fitting it come full circle :p
Well, ignorance does play a part in both, so...
Not a white man of privilege
