    Prince and Serrano either do not know or do not care that previous bouts of European colonialism led to the deaths of millions of people around the world
    Prince is completely blind to his own motivations and where they inevitably lead.

    tbh these writers deserve to be minecrafted as much as the guy himself
    he knows exactly “where his intentions lead”, and it’s not that he “doesn’t care” about African/Latin lives, it’s that he actively wants them dead

    We should expect the crackers to go mask off, and even welcome their rhetoric. We should spit on the verminous refuse who give them the “benefit of the doubt” even after this.

    btw for the on-the-fence Latinos on here: how do you feel about that “Western” inclusiveness?

      Prince self consciously considers himself a christian crusader in the larpiest way possible. Dude ran blackwater back in the day. Pathetic that the writers are “giving him the benefit of the doubt” “don’t assume malice before ignorance” has poisoned people’s brains.

      grill-broke: “Why do those tumblr people say all us white people are racist? We just want to kill everyone who isn’t us and steal their stuff for laughs. Can’t they just let bygones be bygones? Slavery’s in the past!”

            Also do Asians even know that they are considerd Subhumans in the West?

            I was following several pro-PanAsia Asian American accounts on twitter (but then stopped following a few very vocal ones because I discovered they were unfortunately also racist towards literally anyone not Asian) who were upset with Asian Americans who they felt were sellouts for dumping not only on China and North Korea, but in some cases even their own parents of Chinese background and the twitter accounts said it was because these sellouts were just desperate to be accepted into American society.

            There are certainly Asian Americans who can see how they’re viewed and treated in Western countries thankfully; but unfortunately there are certainly sellouts who folks will immediately turn on the moment they say one good thing about China or defend it in any way at all. I’ve seen so many videos of vicious attacks on Asian folks, in addition to them flat out being sucker punched by complete strangers.

        There was a giant thread about a month ago on whether Latinos are “Western” or not.

        I’m not looking to stir that pot again, but just providing context on what Hello Kitty’s probably referring to.

    Idk why liberals act like Wagner is some uniquely evil PMC when they don’t even prosecute this guy. He would 100% join the Russians if his assets weren’t at risk from doing so.

    Prince’s co-host Mark Serrano then warned him that listeners might hear his words and believe he means them: “People on the left are going to watch this,” said Serrano, “and they’re going to say, wait a minute, Erik Prince is talking about being a colonialist again.”

    Prince responded: “Absolutely, yes.” He then added that he thought this was a great concept not just for Africa but also for Latin America.

    The fuck?

      Prince is an evil warlord who was in charge of the blackwater PMC back in the day. His sister is the heir to some fortune and a very important republican. He is a christian fascist wannabe crusader. Just the absolute worst scum you could imagine.

        Prince himself was the nepo baby of Edgar Prince, formally of the car parts manufacturer Prince Corporation. Daddy gave half the family fortune away to his workers when he died. The kids wanted nothing to do with the company and sold it to Johnson Controls.

        He married into the the DeVos fortune. The DeVos’ were huge Trump supporters. Betsy DeVos was Trump’s Secretary of Education.

        So one could conclude this is the out loud part of Trump’s foreign policy if he wins. Doubt anyone would ask Trump about Erik or the DeVos family influence directly.

          I think they literally just have a fantasy that they’re gonna eventually get to unleash their death squads to massacre all their political enemies. It’s the whole “we got all the guns, just try it” mentality

    Abe Lincoln once said that whenever he sees someone advocate for slavery, he has a desire to see them subjected to it personally. I feel the same way about colonialism.

    Later in the show Prince also resurrects another old popular favorite, The Enemy Within Is in League With the Enemy Without. “You get the BLM and the Hamas militias of the Democrat Party, very active in the United States this summer,” he says. “When that BLM or Hamas militia shows up to start wrecking things, you show them what law and order looks like, immediately.”

    Apparently every lib is hamas now.

    Utterly remarkable that a guy like this can go outside every day and not end up being buried in a lunchbox
