  1. For me, it really depends on how easy it is for the Ts to quickly access rifles and get within close range of the CTs. If there are only pistols within the vicinity of the cellblock or vents, then I like leaving the CTs unarmored to give Ts a chance to kill from a distance. On more compact maps where it's easy for Ts to break into the armory like Tower coincidentally enough, then providing the option of armor is not a bad idea.
  2. Huh, I guess it could be interesting to try and come up with something good. No guarantees. It would definitely be more compact than Dojo though. Yeah, I'll just say I think we're about done with those things now. Ifeelbadyou'refacetoseeithalfthetimeyougothroughvents
  3. The thing is that your interpretation is off because Zundel was found to have blatantly have an intention to expose Jews to hatred and condemnation on several occasions. Additionally, holocaust denial is based off of falsified history and isn't remotely close to the truth or a "differing opinion." You would be extremely hard-pressed to find anyone that suggests that holocaust denial is not antisemitic. He wasn't some poor sap who accidentally offended a Jewish person who wrongfully overreacted. He knew exactly what he was doing. Stuff like holocaust revision is kept suppressed and is universally condemned, because vulnerable disenfranchised people fall for it and become radicalized. Allowing shit like this to perpetuate on the scale Zundel was is extremely dangerous and can have serious repercussions on Jewish communities. It's not a coincidence that hate crimes against Jewish communities skyrocketed in Canada and the U.S. last year. The thing is that the guy had actively been spreading Neo-Nazi propaganda for 25 years or so I believe at the time of this case. It was later so severe that he was found to be a threat to national security and was deported for inciting racial hatred. To say he was jailed because he only believed the holocaust never happened is a massive understatement considering the role he played in perpetuating it and radicalizing people into becoming Neo-Nazis. He wasn't some ordinary denier who just so happened to say the holocaust never happened some one time. Again, I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to accomplish by citing these obscure holocaust revisionists when you say they're retarded. I mean, the women has no legal credibility considering she's apparently a model and an actress, not even a lawyer. How is she at all relevant? Can't you bring up some other political group besides holocaust deniers or petty obvious bigots that are having their rights infringed? That's all I'm asking for really. I mean, the fact the only people you can find that are being impacted are all holocaust deniers that think Judaism is a poison has to mean your country is pretty effective when it comes to only punishing people who are actually hateful individuals and not those who accidentally offended others. It's not like you're being jailed if you say something bad about Trudeau. Dude, you outright cited his own account in a holocaust denial case that, "Neither truth nor intent are defenses. Whether or not the speaker is speaking truth or believes what they are speaking to be true is irrelevant." as if that was official statement made by the CHRC. You peddled his argument as if it was a fact. I can understand wanting to protect Freedom Of Speech, but it was not designed as a shield to empower racists and very obvious bigots like holocaust deniers.
  4. I really suggest doing a little bit more than some "brief research" before peddling the words and claims of one of the most notorious holocaust deniers out there. Of all the possible things you could have cited from that, you decided to go with Zündel's own account and summation of the case he gave at a press conference, and not the CHRC's. For extremely blatant reasons, you should be taking his words with a grain of salt. I have no idea why you thought it was good idea to cite this as an example of a dangerous precedent. That case has very obvious evidence that Ernst violated just about every standard of decency. The fact that the best case you could find of freedom of speech being infringed was of a holocaust denier who spent his entire life denying the holocaust and promoting hatred of Jews should be enough proof that your concerns are seriously blown out of proportion.
  5. I was referring to that specifically. Maybe Canada has changed beyond recognition since the last time I've been there, but I'm finding it extraordinarily hard to believe that Canadian transgender community is going to explode and have people arrested enmass because someone innocently or accidentally used the wrong pronoun. Which Canadian law says nothing about as far as my limited knowledge goes. Even if they did, their charges wouldn't hold up considering you guys have things like defined hate speech laws that very specifically classify what's considered a hate crime. Unless you're advocating for transgender genocide or are being such a blatant asshole that it leaves no room for doubt, this law isn't going to adversely affect anyone. Well except of course, the people are who are upset that they won't be able to discriminate or deliberately harass people on the basis of their gender identity. The way I see it, you're overestimating the impact tumblr trolls have on real life but to each his own.
  6. I'm not a Canadian so I don't follow your country's politics as closely, but I was the under the impression the actual text of the bill only forbids your federal government and businesses within its jurisdiction from discriminating on the basis of gender identity and gender expression. The only source I've found indicating the bill does otherwise is some professor that already believes non-binary gender identities don't exist and unsurprisingly opposes hate speech laws in general. You probably shouldn't worry about being arrested over this passing unless you're planning on purposefully misgendering people with the intention of harassing or belittling them.
  7. In all seriousness, I'm surprised you're still willingly associating with these people considering they figured you were gullible enough to believe they secretly had an amazing healthcare plan just waiting to be unveiled.
  8. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/05/24/greg-gianforte-fox-news-team-witnesses-gop-house-candidate-body-slam-reporter.html I'm at a loss for words.
  9. I was going to post something about this earlier, but I felt like I already up my weekly quota of posting new topics. There's a lot of news coming out of D.C. as of late. Honestly to people who want to say that the protestors had it coming, you can't even say they were doing this in the street blocking traffic or even provoking Erdogon's bodyguards in the first place. Erdogon's thugs that have absolutely no legal authority in the U.S. whatsoever literally broke past a police barricade without warning and began battering American citizens until they were bloody.
  10. Isn't that the crux of the issue though? That we aren't really that surprised the POTUS fired an important apolitical appointee like the FBI director and is now publicly threatening him because they wanted to escalate an investigation against them?
  11. I'm at a loss for words. Up until a few months ago, he was consistently praising Comey's leadership and decisions as the head of the FBI. Now he's threatening him at 8 in the morning on Twitter. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/333081-trump-warns-comey-better-hope-there-are-no-tapes-of-our-meeting I don't see how he can possibly restore his relationship with the FBI at this point considering Comey was held in high regard by most of its agents.
  12. I'm more concerned that this show of force was more expensive than it was worth. Sure, 36 at least 90 ISIS soldiers have died, a cave system they used was caved in and this attack in itself isn't going to be enough to turn someone into a terrorist. But it was at a cost of $16 million dollars and there are still around 600 to 800 ISIS fighters left to in the region. There are obviously many more cave constructs being used by militant groups and you certainly can't wipe them all off the face of planet with bombing raids. It doesn't at all address the root causes of terrorism. I would be very surprised if ISIS or any other hostile group couldn't quickly replenish their loses by recruiting those who have lost family or friends to US air or drone strikes with propaganda. Trump obviously isn't the root cause of all of this, but his rhetoric is only making things worse. He's making it far too easy for these groups to depict the west as an enemy to Islam. The whole "we need to kill their families thing" that can be replayed obviously doesn't depict someone who genuinely cares about liberating populations from terrorists.
  13. AP has a more in depth article about this. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/19772be1238e49fbb62c509a5b659b3d/official-us-military-takes-extra-precautions-syria I don't think I even want to know what the repercussions of an allegation this serious will be. This isn't something you can shake hands over and forget ever happened.
  14. I hope you realize how difficult it is to make military grade chemical weapons, and sarin even more so. The rebels in Syria are fragmented and aren't a unified opposition the regime like ISIS is. To expect them to make and store chemical weapons the way a functioning government being backed and funded by a world power is utterly asinine. Everything suggests Assad's government is responsible because what's left of Assad's opposition does not have the capacity for this sort of attack. The guy is a despot who rules through fear and as a history of bombing hospitals. He could care less about public approval as long as he has the unequivocal backing of a nuclear power like Russia. It shouldn't be an earth shattering surprise Assad cracked down even further on his own populace days after Rex Tillerson declare that the U.S. will no longer seek his removal. Even this airstrike turned to be fairly ineffective as the Syrians were somehow able to evacuate personnel and equipment from the base ahead of time.
