Do any of you have single FUCKING idea how DISRESPECTFUL THIS IS?!?! I am not active duty US Military, nor do I intend to be, but my ENTIRE GODDAMN FAMILY HAS BLOOD ON THAT DIRT AND SAND!

How about I explain?
-Great-Great Grandpa: US Marines, IWO-FUCKING-JIMA! Lost 2-3 fingers to Japanese weapons that day, and for what? This SHIT!
-Great Grandpa: US Army, Korea.
-Great Uncle: I dunno, Army or Marines. Vietnam.
-Grandpa: US Army, Vietnam
-Cousin: US MArines, I-FUCKING-RAQ!
-Cousin: US army, No where cause he's in boot camp

How about I go into my parents?
-Mom: Almost Navy.
-Dad: Almost Army.

And other people who I know and have shit tons of respect for?
-Old Football coach: US Marine, Afghanistan
-Mom's boyfriend: US Army, Iraq, 3 deploys, and almost to his 4th.

And some others who have served and you better fucking know?
-Chris Kyle: US Navy Seals, Iraq, 160+ confirmed Sniper Kills
-Carlos Hathcock: US Marines, Vietnam. 93 Confirmed Sniper Kills, 1 silver star for pulling men out of a burning Amtrak that HIT A FUCKING MINE WITH HIM IN IT!



You wanna tell me that this picture deserves the caption of "There's Bravery, then real bravery" and "real bravery" not be on the side of the 4 US FUCKING MARINES WHO RAISED THAT FUCKING FLAG AFTER almost a month of fucking battle? Did these men in the modern photo ever get shot at from an elevated position and see friends die by the day? Did they ever kill someone for what they believed in? I'm gonna guess no. Fuck Gay Pride, if you can have that, then why is it racist for me to have White Pride, why is Black Pride racist, Asian, and Mexican? Congress needs to pass a stircter law aginst fucking with the Military. No, you cant impersonate a US Soldier, but you shouldnt be able to fucking ruin a photo like this!

Now I'm done, and if I EVER see these men in the Gay Pride photo or see this photo being re-enacted, I WILL kill those men, and I WILL burn that flag, understand me?

This is probably the most annoying trend on the forums lately. People whining about other users being off-topic on the OFF TOPIC forum.

If you don't want to see political stuff than stick to the other sub-forums.

The most annoying trend on the forums, currently, is people thinking 'off-topic' means they can spam the place with arguing and trolling. Off topic should not be of lesser quality than the other threads.

I think Fallen Angel meant not simply political topics, but the ones nonesense raging, overly emotional like it would be new form of 9/11. Comedians have created countless mocking joke like images-sketches over Gulag, deportation, Ashes of Dachau etc. And so what? It only shows how easily peoples can be manipluted just by pictures. Does it devalue the historical meaning or hamper it? Only if you take it seriously.

And after all what is the fuss about a single image? One should open eyes and see terror in Middle-East, poverty etc rather being overly emotional about a painting. It just just stupid!

The OP and the one after it is called perversed version of Patriotism. Poor mans way to glorify his army roots and culture as it would be supreme over other forms of expression in society.

Another reason why we need CENSORSHIP in forum or the Kindergarden section!

On another note:

I find it sickening that you glorify killing other people.


Carlos Hathcock: US Marines, Vietnam. 93 Confirmed Sniper Kills


Murdering 93 other people is not 'honorable'. Not even justifiable. The wars we fight in are started by the rich and it's the rest of us commoners who die. Don't even try to delude yourself with mad ideas about 'defending one's country' or other various s****. The truth is, it was a scheme hatched by our rich, vs their rich, and the people who get caught in the crossfire are the ones who don't have as much money.

Think about it.

Congressmen don't fight. Our government doesn't fight. They don't 'defend their country'. But they send off thousands of people to die in their name, and oftentimes they don't even pretend to make up good reasons for it.

So, take your bullshit about glorifying death and violence in the name of patriotism, and find somewhere else to put it. I recommend Facebook, 'cus y'know what, I bet tons of people want to hear about it on Facebook.

Just because you don't like it doesn't make it lesser quality. If you don't want to discuss this kind of stuff go somewhere else. Don't talk about how bad trolling is while doing nothing but whining and giving people the digital finger. (Very mature by the way. Stay classy, Fallen Angel.)

Sorry, but killing military targets in war doesn't count as murder. No matter how much you hate the military/wars. All blame goes to the governments for starting this crap anyways.

he wars we fight in are started by the rich and it's the rest of us commoners who die

This is true, but you seem to be misdirecting your anger at the military as well(Implying that soldiers are murderers and such...). Don't blame service men/women for the wars they are asked to fight, blame the government for asking them to fight it.

So, take your bullshit about glorifying death and violence in the name of patriotism, and find somewhere else to put it. I recommend Facebook, 'cus y'know what, I bet tons of people want to hear about it on Facebook.

He can post his political views wherever he wants, it's called freedom of speech. However, you also have the freedom to not give him an audience.

There's being asked to fight, then there's accepting. 9/10 soldiers that I have met, their real job is psycopath video game adventures killing the bad blokes, having fun, with "protecting their country" a secondary objective. Ask American soldiers to recite their anthem, see how many can do it perfectly.

Was not that the point, that the OP labeled "GAY Parade" has actually freedom of speech to altering the painting-poster?

I hate saying it a little, since the picture offends me as well, but the truth is yes: Freedom of speech applies to that as well.

However, freedom of speech isn't freedom from backlash. With all the clamor over the Confederate Flag being offensive there's no reason to spite somebody for protesting the picture OP posted.

I might like to add that 'freedom of speech' does not apply to privately owned businesses. In this case, Warlight's forum is privately owned by Fizzer.

For many of the online sites where you may think free speech is protected, you’re required to contractually agree to limit your free speech rights. You actually don’t have the same right to free speech that you would in a truly public forum.

This is true of Facebook, Twitter, and pretty much all the major social media sites I’m aware of. Review their Terms of Service and see for yourself.

So, that said, if Fizzer wants to, he could, at any point, end your 'contract' with Warlight (your account) and, with it, any delusions you have that nonsense in the forums is protected by law. gg

It's very disrespectful of them to parody the photo. Especially because those men immediately died. They had to recreate the scene for the photograph we usually see.

Get over people killing other people. We've done it since our beginning.

I'd like to point out that I am 13 and most people at my school are more mature than you (most of you) people.

Forbidden Knowledge is right, Free Speech does not apply to privately owned businesses.

Anyway, I think these political debates here on the humble off-topic sub forum are interesting, as this is a strategic game, not a chat game. Probably all players in this game I consider favorable would absolutely destroy all players who commented here (Except 2) in a strategic game.

Free speech doesn't apply in most instances where it is cited. Freedom of speech merely protects you from government sanction, not from private repercussions. Just look at Trump's recent fun after his racist rantings.

Yes, but this is the INTERNET, not REAL LIFE.


I doubt 96% one of these threads could be carried on as a conversation (just looking at the most recent threads on the forum, only one seems to actually be able to be carried out as an actual conversation). I doubt your classmates argue strategical values of maps, or throw offensive terms and post suggestive pictures like the ones on the forum recently. You'd probably be perceived as insane, or at the least very idiotic.





"Ah yes, did you see that a new map has come out?"

"Indeed I have, the bonuses are superbly drawn. I much prefer this style of map-making over the other ones that have recently come out..."

They would have killed Hathcocks guys if he didnt kill the Vietnamese troops first.
