If anyone remembers Ladybaby, that J-pop/metal trio consisting of a bearded cross-dresser and two gravure idols, the singer here was one of those girls.  I've been following their stuff for a little while now, not too bad.

Oh Coulter....you are just dangling from the edge of the abyss and instead of pulling yourself up, you're planning on which spot you're gonna land on.

Ironbite-infants being actors you heinous bitch.

Look at those goalposts move.

"Advanced civilization" my ass. It seems to me that our good friend Harrison here has already approved of murder, rape, robbery, forcing people to act against the sexual identity and all kinds of nasty stuff and it is always for the same reason. "It's OK when I or people I like are doing it."

Now, that's not how it works. There really is nothing distinguishing Harrison's justification from those that Art made in jest.

Any law that is based on "it is OK when I do it" is nothing but tyranny or corruption.

Incidentally, a red flag for someone being ignorant, a hack, a racist, or some combination of the preceding is emphasizing that Andrew Jackson was a DEMOCRAT when it's brought up how fucking awful that shithead was.

Why was forced conversions bad? 

Here this should answer your question

Those crimes against the natives were done in Canada which was part of the British Empire, not America. The British Empire committed far worse crimes against indigenous peoples than America ever did based on what happened to the natives in Canada, the aborigines in Australia, blacks in Africa under British rule etc.

Eh, I come from California - back before we were a liberal den of Hollywood and celebrity, there was unquestionably a genocide against the local Native Americans by the American Government. As in, people ran for public office in the United States based on "I will commit genocide on these Indians".

Well, y'see Jackoffite, how would you feel if someone forced you to piss on your Bible and swear allegiance to some other deity or belief? And all the people who did this would say is "we're better than you. We get to make your choices for you."

(I propose we auto-correct Jacobite to Jackoffite in light of his proclivities)

I am no longer a Jacobite because the Jacobite line of succession comes from the House of Stuart which ruled in the 1600s. My research shows that the Jacobite line of succession is not legitimate either because the Stuarts are descended from Henry VII and does not follow the male primogeniture line of succession of hte descendants of John Beaufort.

I hate to defend Jacob, but the "smallpox blankets" narrative is probably a myth. There was only one documented attempt to do so, during the 1763 Siege of Fort Pitt. Furthermore, it was done by British military officers, not the American government (since there was no American government as we know it at the time), and we don't even know if it was successful.

That being said, he's still full of shit regarding just about everything else, as dpareja so skillfully pointed out. But I'd like to add a few things of my own.

"Primitive tribal civilization?" Much of our constitution was inspired by the Iroquois Confederacy, as was pointed out earlier. You also can't ignore the facts that "settling out west" all too often involved displacing the natives who were already there, and "native assimilation" tended to be done by force.

The Iroquois Confederacy May have inspired our constitution but they were far from being an advanced civilization like Europe.

How do you define "advanced civilization?"

Advanced civilization is civilization that has cities, currency, writing, historical records, written laws, scholars, and scientists. That is what Europe had which most native tribes in North America did not have.

You know what I will say? Our resident denim lover's ramblings about feudal succession has gotten me back into Crusader Kings 2. Decided to try something different, so I went with the chief of the Isle of Mann. Got a very successful trade/piracy based economy up and running a lot sooner than I thought I would. The current plan is to become a trade republic and eventually kick the Muslims out of Iberia and replace them with either Christian or Germanic client states ruled by my kinsmen.

Should be fun, methinks.
