It's probably already too late. 1st thing AI would do is place the appropriate facebook ads to get someone elected that would ensure the government would remain too incompetent to recognize and stop its development.

I just learned we probably have nothing to worry about. after George Soros, Antifa, ISIS, BLM, and all LGBTQ groups seize control of the "Global world government" this weekend, all AI research will halt as everyone (all 7 billion of us) is marched off to re-education camps, and taught how to be... all those things at once.

We'll all be black, Islamic Extremists who are also gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender, who fight facism, and make billions in currency speculation. If that sounds a little ridiculous to you, all you need to know is these are LIBERALS we're talking about, so nothing they may do makes sense. Pray.

You think you're making a joke, but here in Los Angeles they just changed Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day, and if a person is caught by the diversification thought police using the term "Columbus Day" for any other reason than explaining that they have the day off (basically they work for a giant international banking interest that is headquartered in a different state, where observing Columbus Day is still not against the law), that person is forced to attend a mandatory diversification sensitivity class.

And if you try to explain that Milo Yianopolous is really just basically harmless comic, forget about it...you'll never be seen nor heard from again.

You really can't drag the name "Columbus" through the mud enough. But you also don't want to forget history. We should just make it a cultural practice to do something negative to demonstrate our disgust any time the name comes up. Especially people on TV, like sportscasters.

Tons of bad shit happened under his watch. I don't know if he was responsible or not. There's a history of Catholics celebrating him and anti-Catholics vilifying him. New social media references to either ignore this context and assume that anything written decades ago is unbiased.

I think.

in my experience - as an Italian American - the Italian Americans who push for honoring Columbus as a great Italian American are the really boorish, loudmouth guys. think the Jerky Boys "Frank Rizzo" character. They don't know and don't care about Columbus' track record once he discovered America.

FWIW, I'm not a big fan about going back and excoriating historical figures for doing things that many - if not most - people at the time probably agreed with, but I'm also not a big fan of honoring them today.

Speaking of poorly-named shit to honor Italian Americans, in Chicago recently there has been a push to rename Balbo Drive, which was named for a fascist Mussolini supporter. I am not kidding.

unsurprisingly, there is a surprising amount of pushback from Chicago-area Italian Americans (mostly ones who look like this):

except not dead

Yeah. I hope we got it right in honoring him with his own day and everything and if we got it wrong, I hope we fix it, but I don't know myself and don't expect most people to become historians and figure it out somehow.
