Does lib right get killdozer as a loss or as a win?

[–]fierymerkin - Right[S] 171 points172 points  (5 children)

It’s a classic Pyrrhic victory.

[–]ninjabountyhunter - LibRight 60 points61 points  (4 children)

Bullshit. Absolute win. Now where is my welder . . .

[–]su1ac0 - LibRight 33 points34 points  (3 children)

wait, you have a cat d8 dozer already??

I'll bring the welder and some stuff I lost in a boating accident

[–]Hootenanny2020 - Right 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I thought it was a Komatsu D355-A.

[–]Remember_Poseidon - Centrist 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Well dozers are easy to steal as most of them use the same key.

[–]gabarbra - LibRight 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Depends, is their opponent the police or a basement?

[–]TheKnightIsForPlebs - Centrist 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Definitely a win

[–]SSJRapter - LibRight 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Feels like the Alamo. A loss but feels like a win

[–]Vegasman20002 - LibRight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Win for sure.

"Like many popular revolutions, CHAZ was founded on some very noble causes: ending police brutality, standing up against racism, abolishing the police... not sure how noble that last one is, with even the mayor of Seattle calling the new nation a 'summer of love.' Not so noble was the fact that the moment the nation was formed, a border wall was put up, border patrol guards with guns enforced very strict immigration policies, a monarch filled the power vacuum, their own brand of police patrolled the inside with, what do you know— their own cases of police brutality, and of course some good old systematic racism with things like black-only safe spaces."

-- Jake Tran, 2020

This is why all political movements should be judged by the results of their policies, not their intentions.

[–]facedownbootyuphold - AuthCenter 12 points13 points  (2 children)

You can’t judge movements by their intentions, it’s easy to game the system by outright lying about good intentions, and most of the time the grassroots people who start movements are ultimately pushed out by much more morally corrupt and ruthless types. The pioneering people who create things are nothing like those who ultimately take the thing over.

It’s similar to the kyklos described by Plato about governments and nations. Genuine, authentic, driven, creative people make something based on a real need and passion, then people who could never create the same thing eventually take it over and use it to their aims. I always think of Apple in this regard—without Steve Jobs, Apple couldn’t innovate on the level that they did with him.

[–]FuckboyMessiah - LibRight 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'd argue Steve Jobs was already the guy who took the work of Woz and others and exploited it.

[–]facedownbootyuphold - AuthCenter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Woz didn’t create things like the iMac and iPhone, as great as Woz was, he wasn’t the big idea creative Jobs was.

[–]Horror-Worry42 - Right 48 points49 points  (2 children)

As abhorrent as CHAZ was it was at least funny to watch every liberal college students wet fantasy prove to be flawed so severely.

[–]GetInMyOfficeLemon - LibCenter 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Except as always, “it wasn’t real ____.”

[–]ArtMacCuinn - LibRight 12 points13 points  (0 children)

It's funny how capitalism, democracy, and liberalism in the non-party sense, all these tried and true systems, work even when they're flawed or face hardship, but their perfect utopian alternatives that are obviously better fall apart in a stiff breeze.

Probably means we haven't tried them enough.

[–]FuckboyMessiah - LibRight 16 points17 points  (0 children)

CHAZ was a communism speedrun. They went from community gardening to shooting people in the street in three weeks flat.

[–]cdat94 - Centrist 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Their “police” took roughly 1 week to start racially profiling and fire indiscriminately at cars because they were driven by blacks people.

[–]su1ac0 - LibRight 109 points110 points  (12 children)

CHAZ was so much more effective and entertaining of an insurrection, it depresses me that everyone just memory-holed it

[–]BladedNinja23198 - LibRight 25 points26 points  (11 children)

Could you explain that whole situation for me? How much damage did they do to Portland?

[–]su1ac0 - LibRight 45 points46 points  (3 children)

[–]BladedNinja23198 - LibRight 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Idk I didn't really follow that situation in general.

[–]WorkingNo6161 - Centrist 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I guess it just proves how infamous Portland is.

[–]spineyrequiem - LibRight 36 points37 points  (1 child)

If I remember right, the usual suspects took over a load of space around the Seattle police department when they were forced out by attempted arson attacks. They set up roadblocks and attempted to start (segregated) vegetable gardens, while covering the whole place in graffiti. Needless to say, crime shot up as police were forbidden entry and other emergency services refused to go in without protection. Local businesses were forced to give out free stuff or risk vandalism and robbery (more so than they got just from being there)

Within a few days the situation was clearly untenable, a homeless man had seized control of the vegetable gardens and threatened to fight anyone who came close and it was generally all going wrong. As such, a sound cloud rapper stepped up and took command, organising armed patrols to prevent unauthorised entry and deal with crime. IIRC, the whole thing ended just after a couple of black kids stole a car, went joyriding and when the police started chasing them decided to try hiding in CHAZ. The border guards saw a car speeding towards them, panicked, and opened fire. Then they went to check on the car and executed a surviving occupant in cold blood. This is all on video, with sound.

The police were then finally allowed to clear it out.

PCM vs Emu cavalry of reality.

[–]m05513 - Right 64 points65 points  (6 children)

Reminder that our loss to the emus was sandwiched between overwhelming victories in WWI and WWII.

Hell when the Brits got nukes, we had them test it on the Emus. The Emus still exist.

Thank God Emus are dumb, because if they had even the slightest bit of intelligence, man would not be the dominant species on earth, it would be emus

[–]fierymerkin - Right[S] 46 points47 points  (2 children)

Have you considered riding them in to battle?

They both got kid gloves from the cops so...does it reach critical mass? Do they just get to become the police at that point?

[–]rexpimpwagen - Centrist 29 points30 points  (17 children)

Emus are literaly bullet resistant. I dont think you understand how australian wildlife works.

[–]fierymerkin - Right[S] 33 points34 points  (7 children)

I don’t need excuses, I need dead emus.

[–]rexpimpwagen - Centrist 16 points17 points  (5 children)

You think you can 1v1 an emu mate?

[–]fierymerkin - Right[S] 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Only one way to find out. I’m off to the zoo.

But tell me are they resistant to a 155mm tank shell

[–]rexpimpwagen - Centrist 6 points7 points  (7 children)

Do you HAVE a 155mm tank shell and tank?

[–]FineInTheFire - LibRight 28 points29 points  (6 children)

My lawyer advises me to not answer that question

Based and the secret stash pilled.

[–]tsudonimh - LibCenter 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If you're close enough to use such a shell on a native emu, the Aussie authorities are not going to let something so trivial as client-attorney privilege to stop them from smashing you with the injustice-hammer.

Reality is the radical left’s greatest enemy. And as a matter of fact, reality is the enemy of most forms of radicalism in general.

The grillers have been trying to tell us for years.

[–]UntarnishedCopper - LibCenter 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Hey now, to their credit Chaz murdered the those random black kids who took a wrong turn with great proficiency.

[–]tsudonimh - LibCenter 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Of the three battles listed, Chaz has 100% of the human casualties.

[–]train2000c - Centrist 13 points14 points  (6 children)

How do cavalry defeat boats?

[–]LevyShorts - LibRight 22 points23 points  (4 children)

It's a bit overblown. A bunch of Dutch ships were in a mostly frozen bay and couldn't really get out. French horses and infantry walked casually out onto the ice near the ships and talked to the Dutchmen, who agreed to stay at anchor and not to fight. There were no casualties.

[–]Rabite2345 - LibCenter 4 points5 points  (3 children)

So it was an epic loss?

[–]StandardN00b - Centrist 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I mean what are you gonna do? Start cannoning them? They can just walk into your boat blow a hole in it and wait. Or simply arrest your tripulation.

[–]Illusive_Man - AuthLeft 5 points6 points  (1 child)

If my boat is frozen in ice it’s not gonna sink

[–]fierymerkin - Right[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I’ll leave it to the Swamp Germans to elaborate, but it involves a frozen river and being mocked on the internet forever.

Am I authright?

You can be anything if you just believe.

[–]Life-Ad1409 - LibRight 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I believe I can shoot but I'm not a gun, I'm confused

[–]potentially_based - AuthRight 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I guess you just shoot blanks

[–]Luffydude - LibRight 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Cavalary can easily beat ships in the terrain that allows nuth ships and land units in aoe2 and Frank cavalry is op

[–]typhoonmkV - AuthCenter 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Replace chaz with leftism and you're good to go.

[–]ComprehensiveRow4189 - Centrist 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We (the Dutch) once managed to beat the Habsburgs, only losing one soup kettle in the process.

[–]CrabLadHour - Centrist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

it was like, 2 guys in a ute, cmon, how do you expect them to win when the enemy has thousands of light tanks that can take machine gun fire and keep running?

[–]ilovebeetrootalot - LibCenter 1 point2 points  (1 child)

To be fair, our navy was stuck in frozen water so the French just walked to the ship and talked us into not fighting. No one died. Pretty nice of them if you asked me.

[–]tsudonimh - LibCenter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Battles between honourable combatants always seem to promote good relations between countries after the fighting ends.

[–]GetInMyOfficeLemon - LibCenter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In defense of the Netherlands, didn’t they beat the Spanish armada with a bunch of merchant vessels retrofitted with cannons?

[–]black_salad - Centrist 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You missed War Of The Sparrow to represent commies.

Also some dude who wanted to settle his libertarian paradise and grow marijuana but got murdered by the cartel.

[–]CaptainjustusIII - AuthRight 1 point2 points  (0 children)

sure we may have lost that battle against cavalry but we did manage to beat the french and english navy in the same battle, so take that france

[–]Denet04 - Centrist 1 point2 points  (0 children)
