We've seen an uptick in people posting dunks in here that belong in dunk_tank, as well as low-hanging fruit that gets removed from or isn't allowed in dunk_tank anymore. For context, rule 8 of dunk_tank:

Rule 8: The subject of a post cannot be low hanging fruit, that is comments/posts made by a private person that have low amount of upvotes/likes/views. Comments/Posts made on other instances that are accessible from hexbear are an exception to this.

There's a reason that dunks are cordoned off to their own comm, some users rightfully don't want to see reactionary nonsense all the time, even if we're making fun of the person who said it. /c/cth is a general-purpose comm but it's NOT for posting some random nobody asshole twitter user's bad takes, the absolute best course of action to take when you see that stuff out in the wild is to either directly shit on them yourself, or ignore them and don't give them more attention.

From this point on I'm going to be more stringent about moderating this. I get it, it's fun to dunk on the libs and the blue checks and the frothingfash and that's why we have a whole dedicated comm for that. Any post that's obviously meant to be "hey look at this piece of shit, let's laugh at how bad their opinions are, upbears to the left and emojis in chat" belongs in the_dunk_tank. And any super low-hanging fruit doesn't belong on this site, period (see TDT rule 8 above). We have better things to do with our time than give unearned attention, time and energy to low-follower-count nobodies yelling into the void.

Thanks for your discretion comrades, stay sicko sicko-jammin

edit: as others have pointed out, /c/shitreactionariessay@lemmygrad.ml is a good place for any and all dunking content not allowed here. Post that ragebait to our comrades at the 'grad, they'll make good use of it. Also, per rule 9 of TFT dunking on fediverse users is still explicitly allowed so it's still open season on those in our own backyard.

This is on my mind, since I had to temp-ban someone from c/vegan for it in the past week, and another example of it went unmoderated for hours after being reported in another community (though it was eventually dealt with).

It doesn't matter how much the person you're responding to deserves it. Odds are, they will not care. But you know who will care? Any comrades who happen to read the thread and who struggle with suicidal ideation and/or self harm. You could ruin their day. You could be the push that sends them over the edge. Even in the unlikely event that you cause grief to the person you're responding to, no amount of collateral damage is worth it.

Don't make suicide bait posts or comments. Don't upvote suicide bait posts or comments. Report and denounce them wherever they show up.

Chew a Jew (lemmygrad.ml)

[Transcript]

A tale by Herman of Bologna in the Viaticum narrationum (ca. 1280–1290) describes the rather comical story of how a Jew of Cologne, having received communion, kept the host in his mouth; when he removed it, he discovered that it had turned into a tiny child. When he put it back in his mouth, it had become so hard he could not chew it or swallow it, and eventually, admitting the miracle, he was converted. This was in fact the first literary tale in which a Jew ingested the Eucharist. Many versions of this tale continued to be circulated in the later Middle Ages.^172^

And tradition. Made a fucking comment about how his grandpa used to say *extremely vulgar and classist statement.” You could tell he disagreed with him but the Catholic and puritanical part almost trumped it. So insane to me how people just don’t deconstruct what they’ve been taught

Of course his ancestors have been super comfortable. Holy fuck I am such a communist it hurts

Critics slammed the segment as a low point in "modern American political discourse" while some suggested that The Late Show might have inadvertently cast Biden in a villainous light.

“The police regularly oppresses people by making false reports and false arrests.”

“FUCK BACKGROUND CHECKS. FUCK RED FLAG LAWS. THE GOVERNMENT WILL USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE TO TREAD ON YOUR GOD GIVEN SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!”

“[Most] non violent offenders shouldn’t have their lives ruined without a chance of rehabilitation.”

“HE PAID HIS DEBT TO SOCIETY! IF YOU CAN’T TRUST AN EX CONVICT WITH A GUN, YOU SHOULDN’T RELEASE HIM!”

“People shouldn’t be locked up for using drugs and not bothering anyone ( sold and used by innocents and criminals)”

“LAW ABIDING CITIZENS SHOULDNT BE LOCKED UP FOR USING SUPPRESSORS! (sold and used by innocents and criminals)”

“The police will kill you with impunity and no good reason.”

“THE ALPHABET BOIS WILL SHOOT YOUR DOGGO!! GET IT? BECAUSE THEY KILL YOU WITH IMPUNITY AND NO GOOD REASON!”

“You shouldn’t have to jump through a hundred hoops just to prove you’re deserving of housing and healthcare.”

“YOU SHOULDNT HAVE TI JUMP THROUGH A HUBDRED HOOPS JUST TO PROVE YOURE DESERVING OF THE GOD GIVEN RIGHT OF PROTECTION!!”

“The courts are not objective. They are political tools and rarely will help you.”

“GOD DAMN COMMIE DA WILL SEND YOU TO GUANTANAMO FOR KILLING A RAPIST MURDERER IN YOUR HOUSE WITH A .45!!”

And that’s the thing. They believe that guns and self defense are rights ordained by god himself, more important than anything else, they think “the government” (rarely do they specifically call out the police) is fundamentally evil for even considering any gun control measure - yet they’re perfectly okay with the same government, same police force, enslaving prisoners or just executing them over flimsy evidence and vibes, that cops are always out to protect you, making it hard to get a job or simply survive.

And it also reveals their true fantasies: when you bring up American soldiers and cops killing innocent people, they’re just “following orders” or “doing their job” from the “incompetent higher ups.” And yet, when you ask who they think will enforce gun control laws, conservatives will proudly declare that they will not comply and cops proudly declare they will not follow their superior orders to confiscate or arrest anyone over gun control. Guns are more important than human life, so much so that they have no problem with massacring families on their officer’s command or watch idly as their partner shoot a cuffed suspect then lie about it; but gun control is such a mortal sin that they will decry it, protest it, and refuse to follow it.

Perez had told police that his father, 71-year-old Thomas Perez Sr., went out for a walk with the family dog at about 10 p.m. on Aug. 7, 2018. The dog returned within minutes without Perez’s father. Investigators didn’t believe his story, and over the next 17 hours they grilled him to try to get to the “truth.”

Later, during their interview, the detectives told Perez his father’s body actually had been found already.

According to court records, detectives told Perez that his father was dead, that they had recovered his body and it now “wore a toe tag at the morgue.” They said they had evidence that Perez killed his father and that he should just admit it, records show.

Perez insisted he didn’t remember killing anyone, but detectives allegedly told him that the human mind often tries to suppress troubling memories.

At one point during the interrogation, the investigators even threatened to have his pet Labrador Retriever, Margosha, euthanized as a stray, and brought the dog into the room so he could say goodbye. “OK? Your dog’s now gone, forget about it,” said an investigator.

“How can you sit there, how can you sit there and say you don’t know what happened, and your dog is sitting there looking at you, knowing that you killed your dad?” a detective said. “Look at your dog. She knows, because she was walking through all the blood.”

“When can you take us to show us where Daddy is?” asked one of the investigators.

Perez became so distraught that he began pulling out his hair, hitting himself, making anguished noises and tearing off his shirt while police encouraged him to confess, according to a summary of the case written by U.S. District Court Judge Dolly Gee.

Finally, after curling up with the dog on the floor, Perez broke down and confessed. He said he had stabbed his father multiple times with a pair of scissors during an altercation in which his father hit Perez over the head with a beer bottle. He was so distraught that he even tried to hang himself with the drawstring from his shorts after being left alone in the interrogation room. Perez was arrested, handcuffed and transported to a mental hospital for 72-hour observation.

Perez’s father wasn’t dead — or even missing. Thomas Sr. was at Los Angeles International Airport waiting for a flight to see his daughter in Northern California. But police didn’t immediately tell Perez.

“Mentally torturing a false confession out of Tom Perez, concealing from him that his father was alive and well, and confining him in the psych ward because they made him suicidal, in my 40 years of suing the police I have never seen that level of deliberate cruelty by the police,” said Jerry Steering, Perez’s attorney in Newport Beach.

Perez’s lawsuit claims detectives also refused for several hours to retrieve his medication for high blood pressure, asthma, depression and stress.

Police picked up the father at the airport and brought him to the Fontana station.

But the investigation didn’t stop there. Detectives obtained a warrant to again search Perez’s house for evidence that he had assaulted an “unknown victim,” according to Gee’s summary.

It appears none was found.
