We've found the Trump supporter.

Wouldn't be surprised if this dude's a Derek Chauvin supporter.
 

This is exactly the response I was trying to provoke. Yes, for hating hatred, I am equally hateful. That's some major league inbred energy, and I'm embarrassed that people think like you do.

I try not to define myself by typical Right/Left ideologies. I highly recommend reading, "The Listening Society," by Hanzi Freinacht. It gives a really cool political analysis via a developmental lens that is very reminiscent of Spiral Dynamics, which he mentions. He gives a great analysis of Anarchism and Communism, and talks about where they fit in the coming future of civilization, especially in the sequel, "Nordic Ideology," which I also recommend. 

Either way, I believe that your anger at these people is justified. My issue is that you can be angry at these people and desire to change their beliefs, while still acting from a place of love. I think it's a mistake to think that you cannot be against these political ideologies, actively work against them, or, in the most extreme circumstances, even kill, without it coming from a place of love. As you strike the face of a Nazi with his boot on the face of a homosexual person, can you love that Nazi? Can you empathize with how his belief system is only true for him insofar as his upbringing and influences allowed? Personally, I believe that the future of political discourse is to transcend our anger for one another, and act from a place of love, even if that means we must engage in violence against those who would engage in violence against us.

I'm not a Trump supporter, neither do I sympathize with Chauvin.

Rap is just so unprofessional, and their music videos are nasty.

@Husseinisdoingfine give it a chance there are some higher quality rap artists out there, lol nas x is not a j cole or Tupac or Kendrick Lamar. Listen to the Damn album by Kendrick Lamar it won a Pulitzer Prize.

Same thing I was saying in another thread about the shoes so I'll copy & paste it here:

"This might get into conspiracy theory territory but I often wondered why rappers or mainstream artists in general promote this sort of stuff. Conspiracy theorists may say they're all part of a secret group like the Illuminati, worship the devil and are selling their soul for money and all that which may be true? Who knows, but sometimes I think they do this to just create controversy. Controversy is what gets people talking about it and acts as a marketing tactic, which then sells records/products.

Nothing new though, mainstream rappers/musicians were always subtle about promoting 666, devil worship, triangles, illuminati, etc. Although, Lil Nas X is going over the top with it and created a whole entire shoe & music video making it obvious."

Everyone is talking about this right now, even you guys here on the forum, this is what they want.

Well, the writer above has a opinion :D

I do not know, sometimes i can be open-minded to these stuff. When music videos went hypersexual, then that was the end for the music industry for me.

Still listen to some old Eminem songs. Reason is that he is a straight white male who visits the church every Sunday.

Lol, just kidding.

Having sex with the devil? Interesting, although I don’t fully understand the message behind it.

Conservatives say that democrats get offended by everything, but I think the opposite is true. 
this is not the first time an artist talks/portraits satan and the devil,  but they’re acting like Jesus just died yesterday. 
Remember the 60s and the 70s?? Even the 90s??. All these satan s* has been done before. When did society became so puritan?? 
 

Besides, this is just a marketing tactic. Is WAP 2.0

So true, something struck me too, eventually conspiracy theories will become so widespread that companies and artists will literally start doing the Illuminati thing to get clicks! It would be marketing genius.

Exactly. Like what? Hell and sex? Succumbing to the devil? This has been done before I was born.
