I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said better, but I think it's hilarious you consider Bernie Sanders to be Venezuelan levels of left. You are blinkered sir, Bernie's political stance is very much slightly left of centre. Just because America's entire political spectrum is situated on the Right wing, does not make Bernie some crackpot communist. Your Overton window is just very askew.
If Bernie was a UK politician, he would probably be either a Liberal Democrat (centre party) and looking at his stance on other things, he could even be a Conservative (Right) politician, he certainly wouldn't be out of place there.

@Michael Mario I would greatly advise actually learning a thing or two about world politics before you try to so confidently assert such things. Frankly, the situation with your politicians is really abnormal. It cannot be healthy to have almost every single politician be on the centre to right wing. No wonder you're terrified of the Left, you've never experienced it. Perhaps if you had you wouldn't be so volatile to it

Bernie Sanders is not some far left extremist. Many of the things he wants to implement or demands to be done are perfectly reasonable in many other parts of the world and, at least in parts of Europe even already reality for years. I know that because I come from Europe and follow the news from different sources here. A politician like him would be perfectly possible as a head of government in many western, southern and northern European states. More on the left than most moderates for sure, but nowhere in actual dangerous territory.

It's hilarious to see a take that the Scandinavian countries Sanders apparently often uses as examples are not close to his political stance because those countries would make him chancellor very likely if he would run for the office there, same goes for France, Spain and possibly also Belgium and Portugal.
I do get the impression that some people living in the US don't know the difference between a left-leaning socialist government (which in Europe often means a social democratic government, sometimes also a social liberal one when a coalition is formed with a liberal party) which stands left from the center and an actually dangerous extremist far left regime which often calls themselves communist.

The Scandinavian countries are also repeatedly voted to have the most happy and content citizens of the world which is owed a lot to their effective, well-funded and fair social welfare programs.

late to the party but still a hot button topic nonetheless and apparently its a sin to criticize BLM if this is the hill i die on then so be it.
I frankly couldn't care less at all about current events no interest of me and doesn't affect me at all. And i certainly don't agree at all in the slightest with these riots or the politics at all of BLM. Not everything in life is political and anybody who thinks it is should get over themselves and i am absoultely beyond sick and fucking tired of the faux outrage culture and plague known as cancer culture thats nothing but pure total toxicitiy.
If you wanna defund the police go right ahead these people who are so pro defunding would call 911 the moment it suits them just fine perfectly. It makes you no different at all than those Karens you're so called fighting against.
I've been called all sorts of istaphobia this year alone you named it i've been called it and the pure irony is that i'm a apolitical egalitarian and there's a reason why i block polikore crybully types online i want absoutlely nothing at all to do with them and they already raise up my bad anxienty and depression issues as it is and i honestly am glad to make the decision whenever i do have kids i'll homeschool them from elementary to highschool since i don't trust my kids at all with teachers in the slightest only my parents or my very close friends online i'll trust.
I'll also certainly never buy anythign at all from people or companies supporting BLM and these people who claim to be fighting oppression are the same ones living in privelege and wealth beyond what the 99 percent of the world could ever imagine to be. I also don't buy anything at all that is woke in general just purely anime,manga or games from Japan since they focus purely on entertainment and if you ask me if your entire life revolves around validation from representation from media (which itself is totally pointless and this is coming from someone who is of Asian and European decent) and from politics are nothing but total idiots and to end this rant to paraphrase Game Of Thrones Cutting a mans tongue only proves him right.

Never realised my topic would prove to be such a useful litmus test

EDIT: okay I'll bite, I got the time right now

I frankly couldn't care less at all about current events no interest of me and doesn't affect me at all.

Then you really need to step out of your gamer den and interact with the world you live in man, because guess what, Society is a thing and its real, and people's actions and reactions have consequences on others. BLM is just a culmination of decades of racist sentiment. I will never understand people who try to be apolitical. What do you achieve? A peace of mind? If that's truly so, then why does the rest of your post read like a guy who's worldview is on the verge of being shattered and he's doing everything he can to protect that.

On some level you clearly realise that you can't escape coming into contact with the BLM conversation, but rather than having an open mind and trying to learn, you have instantly backlashed. Why? Because your comfortable reality is being threatened, and that makes you upset and I guess you're trying your best to just make things back to the status quo.

Now the problem here is the status quo that was so beneficial to you that you never needed to care about politics was actively affecting non-white people, particularly African Americans, in America in a very detrimental and harmful manner.

What these people are now doing is simply taking a stand for their rights, but that simple act means you have to readdress your worldview, and clearly that must be difficult for you to do. Now just think about the difficulties you and a Black person face. While they are out protesting for their lives and livelihoods, you are simply mad because your peace of mind is being forced to confront something that is anathema to an apolitical person.

Well let me make this very easy for you, there is a right and wrong side here, and you can pick one, fence sitting will only make you feel worse.

I'll also certainly never buy anythign at all from people or companies supporting BLM and these people who claim to be fighting oppression are the same ones living in privelege and wealth beyond what the 99 percent of the world could ever imagine to be.

I hate to break it to you, but Square Enix donated to BLM and supports it wholeheartedly. In fact it's on this thread just a few pages back

My completetly apolitical stance still stands and honestly nothing at all you've said will ever change my mind in the slightest and it just proves my point on how hiveminded and how strong cognitive disonance is within humanity and i frankly couldn't care less at all about being offended by things that were never offensive in the first place.
Real life isn't twitter and as a Wasian i personally don't feel opressed at all by anybody and i live my life how i see fit and its mainly to completelty avoid all forms of stress and politics is included. To end my topic since its not worth it at all arguing with someone online especially someone from the polikore crybully woke left side. I really absoultely hate woke culture and the people who are part of it because truth be told theres no such thing at all as good guys in politics everyone is a villain in equal measure including yourself if you take a side. Have fun with dealing with the next time someone tries home invade you and the police is nowhere to show up.

Square Enix made donations to BLM and also matched donations made by their employees. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Nintendo banned terms like ACAB,BLM and Covid in a recent update. You think Nintendo in Japan could care about Western faux world problems of Gaijins?
Last time I checked Nintendo and SE are co-operative but still different companies so that has absolutely nothing to do with Square Enix donating to BLM. Care to try again?

I don't think I could have been more conciliatory in my post to you but fair enough if that's how you want to reply to me, don't expect me to be so cordial to anything you say

You think Trader Joes is going to bend the knee over their products well think again.
We're talking about Square Enix, who donated 250k dollars and more to BLM, and whose games you clearly buy. You said you won't support any company that supports BLM so why are you supporting SE?

A political commentator once compared Trump's America to a forest fire. It's a metaphor that meant that even if something bad was gonna happen, it could give way to something better afterwards. So hopefully that metaphor can apply here to.

Hmph crosses arms. When will people realize that nothing frickin matters besides videos game and companys. You and me are together on this one bro I freaking hate politicals. Like honestly is my time better spent voteing? or gameing? not sure yet but when i'm getting high scores on gameing and actually achieving something come election night (November 3th) these sheep can enjoy 'voteing'

Everything you have said so far in this thread has been a cringefest. If these are your beliefs, you are entitled to them but you have also shown yourself to be uninformed. You clearly buy or have bought SE products and just ignore everything when called out.
If this is trolling... jesus this is a piss poor attempt. I saw that you like dark and edgy humor. This ain't that bub.
