they're not doing this to be cute, they're making stuff to help the US kill brown people
@SeanAloysiusOBrien saw a fucking twitter video of some white people coming across one of those dogs in the streets at night and lauding over it like it was a real puppy and I was just thinking about how these dogs will be all over the streets in about 30 years upholding our freedom
But who invented it? It's sick. Violence is sick. There are sick people all over the world, it's true.
It's OK, you can love your country, but you don't have to love its extreme love of violence if you don't want to. I still have hope that the USA can one day become more peaceful, but it would need a really good reason to change.
@space_cadet @heartles @a_lizard @SeanAloysiusOBrien you just tried to tut-tut an entire country with some of the most offensively self-congratulatory, overly verbose, cloyingly smug long-range wrong-headded analysis I've ever seen. how on earth did you go from “actually the army is good because they pay for cool robots” to “violence is bad” to “americans have a monopoly on violence because of wrestling?”
