Eton is freemasons-leaded, which isn't so different from communist-leaded ones.

So the universe is either freemasons-leaded or communist-leaded.

Also, with your logic, I read a letter that said that the freemasons also created fascism to create an opposition to communism as well as to the Church. What have you to say now?

people take videos of them doing horrible shit to other people? all the time? unless you're about to claim every video of a criminal act ever is fake.

you see, they take a video of the abusing gay people/immigrants/etc. then upload it, thus publicizing their actions and scaring the shit out of all the gay people/immigrants. this is "how hate crimes work and why they are hate crimes".

I still remember the "happy slapping" fad.

Didn't the Russian government made some anti-homosexual policies recently?

Survey says, they're going to do nothing.


Don't forget the new law even allows them to arrest foreign citizens suspected of being gay. It's become so much of an issue that most civilized countries are doing major security briefings for their Olympic teams now in preparation for Sochi.

though I see what you mean, it was more along the lines of them taping this as a message. not as video evidence. they wanted people to know what would be done to the homosexuals by this, in my view, extremist group of neo-nazis, though most neo-nazis are pretty extremist.

The best part about this is how the Nazis are trying to fight pedophilia, not by attacking the pedophiles, but by attacking potential victims. Nazi logic is best logic.

You will either discuss the topic at hand (Russian Neo-Nazis harassment of the Russian gay community) or you will take your freemason obsession to another thread. Last chance.

Oh really. Just give your evidence, we'll most likely debunk it (though it's doubtful it actually needs debunking), and then we can all get back on topic.

ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!
