Forget Social Distancing And Cops Quitting, The Important Issue Is Dungeons And Dragons

As the world passes 10 million cases of Bat Soup Virus and 500,000 deaths, social distancing took a hit

(The Blaze) June is Pride month, and June 28 is a celebrated day in LGBTQ history as it is the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969. Most cities have canceled their Pride events and parades because of the coronavirus pandemic. But apparently not everyone got the message, especially in Chicago, where a massive crowd gathered.

“Aerial footage shows massive crowds rallying to celebrate #Pride in Chicago,” the Bloomberg QuickTake Twitter account posted on Sunday with a video that featured people amassing with little or no social distancing.

There are lots of tweets with video at The Blaze showing this, including NYC, where some cops were there for protect, some had a massive problem clearing the folks to allow emergency vehicles through, and others got chased off. Also NYC

(Breitbart) According to figures released to the New York Post, about 272 NYPD uniformed officers have filed for retirement since riots over the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd began in late May. At the same time last year, about 183 officers had filed for retirement, indicating a nearly 50 percent spike in retirements this year.

One officer, who wanted to wait to retire until he hit 30 years with the NYPD, told the Post “It’s an all-out war on cops and we have no support.” More than 300 officers were injured in the recent riots.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to cut funding to the NYPD and Commissioner Dermot Shea has announced the disbanding of the city’s 600-officer undercover anti-crime unit that was responsible for keeping shootings and violent crime down.

Murder has increased by nearly 50 percent in New York City over the last month compared to the same time last year. Likewise, burglaries have spiked more than 122 percent and grand larceny auto has increased more than 56 percent.

And shootings have gone up 341% over the last week. But, the Virtue Signalers are more concerned with things like

‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Race Issues Have Deep Roots In The World Of Fantasy

Wizards of the Coast — the company behind the self-proclaimed “world’s greatest role-playing game,” “Dungeons & Dragons” — has committed to stressing diversity and removing racially problematic language from its product line, and fans are holding the company to account for its promises.

“Dungeons & Dragons,” commonly known as D&D, is a game in which a group of players creates characters, rolls dice and navigates a story overseen by a Dungeon Master. Originally created in 1974, the game issued a fifth edition in 2014 that became its most popular, especially after livestreaming platforms such as Twitch and shows such as Netflix’s “Stranger Things” introduced D&D to new audiences.

The game’s newfound popularity, however, has also invited critiques. Critics have pointed out that when creating a character, D&D players must choose a “race” — such as an elf, dwarf or gnome — and that this usage of the word is technically a misnomer.

“‘Races’ in D&D are fundamentally different than our concept of ‘races’ in the real world,” medievalist Paul B. Sturtevant told HuffPost. “In D&D, races are based in deep biological differences, whereas we know that in the real world, race is a social construct based upon arbitrary and superficial differences. Using the word ‘race’ in the game where they really mean something more like ‘species’ promotes racist ideas.”

It’s a very long article, originally from the HuffPost with added material. ON D&D being “problematic.” No, really. People getting apoplectic over how Orcs and other creatures are described. Forcing change. And the company behind it giving in. The Cancel Culture Virtue Signaling SJW Leftist moonbats should consider that their Comrades could come after the stuff they like next. Or themselves. Because everything is stupid these days.

    Thank you for demonstrating that “systemic racism” can’t exist.

  2. Nighthawk says:

    “Race” as used in the D&D world is actually more accurate than the way it is used in the ‘real’ world. We are all ONE race, HUMAN.

    TEACH has introduced a new epithet describing all those he dislikes! He left out “warmist” and “animals”.
