Today in Breitbart Comments: Carry a gun, in case you see more than one black person at the mall

Guns and shopping: Two things that do not go well together, except in the minds of Breitbart readers
Guns and shopping: Two things that do not go well together outside the minds of Breitbart readers

In this somewhat belated edition of Today in Breitbart Comments, let’s take a look at what Breitbarters are saying in response to a post titled “Despite ‘Mall Brawls,’ NAACP Calls Mall’s Curfew Discriminatory.”

As you might imagine, the discussion gets very ugly very quickly.

Deez black keeds jus tryna get they shop on and sheeeeeeiiiiiit. 14 • Reply•Share › Avatar AbleWitness rwg1949yt . • an hour ago Shoppers' lives matter less than the evolving purpose of malls. I now see the genius of using malls as a place where savages can go to thin-out their numbers. When entering malls, savages should be given weapons of all sorts. Inside, they can group-up into their respective gangs and attack each other. The higher the attrition, the more funding the mall receives. After the festivities die down (excuse the pun), the gore on the floor can be fire-hosed away and the businesses can return.

And then, though it hardly seems possible, it gets worse:

If you don't, you'll not be ready. Practice, practice, practice!

But take heart! Not every Breitbart reader thinks it’s a good idea to start shooting people whenever you run across more than one black person in a public place. Because you might accidentally shoot a white person.

It’s possible that the discussion got even uglier than this, but I gave up reading the comments at this point.

REMINDER: This is the audience that Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s campaign CEO, cultivated for many years as the head cheese of Breitbart — and that Trump was presumably hoping to appeal to by hiring Bannon to run his campaign. These are the people whom Trump is empowering and emboldening.

Hopefully Canada’s gun laws will encourage this particular group of Breibarters to stay the hell below the 49th Parallel. Everywhere up here is one of their dreaded “gun free zones.” Unfortunately some Americans have trouble remembering Canada is a separate country, and the Canada Border Services Agency ends up seizing several hundred firearms a year from Americans crossing the border. There are legitimate ways and reasons for Americans to bring guns into Canada, but self defense and concealed carry are not.

re: Staying out of areas inhabited by “lower order humans” – suits me: that would be Planet Earth.

The expression “too good for this world” totally fails to apply here.

Regarding languages and sounds: my understanding is that the phoneme ‘vocabulary’ tends to be set around age 5 or so. Past that point you can learn new words, but you have trouble learning new sounds to make those words from, and sounds that you didn’t learn to distinguish before that point you will have trouble ever distinguishing. A lot of cross-language accents come from that; you learn new words, but you still build them with the old sounds.

Which means if you want to sound perfectly like a native, you have to at least be exposed to the language before about age five to pick up the proper sounds.

(Note: this may be wrong, some research is still ongoing, but that’s the way I’ve understood it.)

Regarding local place names, the CBC had an article about that some years back, triggered by deciding whether the city hosting the 2006 Winter Olympics would be referred to as Turin or Torino: http://www.cbc.ca/news2/indepth/words/kiev-or-kyiv.html

Of course you get into serious fun with some places. Germany in English is Deutschland in German and Allemagne in French. This sort of thing also gets fun at the Olympics where the official rule is that the countries enter the Opening Ceremonies in alphabetical order… using the alphabet and naming conventions of the host country. Places like Germany and The United States (Les États-Unis) get bounced around a lot.

But… Their worldview depends on it! /s

Jenora Feuer – I was placed in Russian language class in the USAF. Six hours a day, five days a week and we’d actually get a lot of fatigue in our mouths and tongues (insert obligatory “cunning linguist” joke here.) So, yeah. I believe your story (as my dad would say.)

On the Ukraina pronunciation thing: It is supposed to be an oo and not a yoo, right? It’s been a long time. Also, trying to type Cyrillic is hard and I’m too lazy to look up how to do it anyway.

You should be able to change it on your phone keyboard settings. But yes У is like ‘oo’. Ю is ‘yoo’.

As someone who was raised in a conservative, almost completely white community where guns were part of everyday life, I have to admit that I do racially profile people for potential threats. And there’s no one higher on the scary list than the white conservative people I grew up around.

@ Judas. Thank me later.

Here you have.
