WATCH: Cops Raid 'Illegal' Gym, Let Cop Who Was Working Out Go While Ticketing Everyone Else

Cops raided a gym because people working out is illegal in parts of Michigan, but when they found their fellow cop there, they let him go while citing everyone else.

Chuds: We are classical liberals

Me: lmao get out of here you idealist dorks materialism is the superior philosophy

Is it a coincidence that 'All Cops are Bastards' sounds like 'No Gods No Masters'?

Both phrases have the same amount of syllables. They almost rhyme, too.

Most importantly, they are both catchphrases used by anarchists...

When people get really hostile towards me on the internet I like to think about how mad they are right then and that's my secret little revenge

@Pawdraig @MoMartin that is to say like, there's a world of difference between appreciation and joy in learning and outright fetishsizing. Enjoying and learn to cook Mexican food for yourself and talking about it with your friends isn't a big deal. I actually am really excited to see more people make my traditional food and step away from actual erasure and commodification by way of capitalism, like say taco hell. It becomes irritating when a white food blogger talks about going on a trip to a resort in Mexico once and decides to replicate a recipe she had there and monetizes their badly white washed nonsense that is in no way honoring the source.

Dia de los Muertos is another example of Erasure, fetishsizing and commodification. If you're celebrating it with your indigenous Mexican friends that's chill. It's a beautiful holiday. If you're using it for a daily aesthetic, that's fetishsizing.

Cultural appropriation is such an interesting fight that we have on the left and in this country, because we often treat it to mean "Cultural theft" which implies the existence of "Cultural property", ideas and practices that can belong to one group of people. While I don't necessarily disagree with that framework, I do think sometimes it might be more productive to talk of Erasure, Fetishization, and Commodification.

Muppet Treasure Island is a classic piece of cinema, there I said it

I like how John Moses Browning designed like fifty different firearms in his lifetime and yet Colt has been milking the 1911 for over 100 years
