    You might need to reexamine your life if you're trying to give cover to some racist POS you've never even met.

    I have a friend who cannot get 20 steps into the Oakland Colliseum. Banned for life, and they enforce it. Itís how I learned how invasive camera tech already is in our world.

    I don't know if that guy is racist or not. Lord help us if we're to be judged by a single moment on TV.

    But the game is real, still played today, and whoever decided that hand gesture is only for 'white power' has a limited viewpoint of life.

    It's not that the gesture is ONLY for white power, but it undeniably has that association now.

    Let's approach this from another angle for a minute...

    Why not play the "circle game" without the three extended fingers? The thumb-and-forefinger hole are the operative element, right?

    Why not make that simple change to disown the WP crowd?

    "The Circle Game"
    "Devil's Triangle" is just a drinking game
    "boof" is to fart.

    I love how people like b-dub like to use the slightest doubt to justify what this truly was. Just enough to cause question that hmmmmm maybe he was just playing a game and nahhhhh all this WP stuff is being miss labeled by the overly sensitive libtard snowflakes.



    Hmmm but this is the NZ gunman's hands at his arraignment. Yeahhh he was just playing the "Circle Game" yeah

    hahhahahhaha... so you have met this guy, and you can in fact testify to his white supremacist views?

    what's the old phrase... Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity


    ​so knowing that there is more than one reason this guy could have been making the hand gesture, why assume it's one or the other?

    No. False premise. Nobody is getting "bent" over anything.

    I had to look up "the circle game" as I had never heard of it, I feel like I lost a few IQ points now that I know about it. What a stupid game

    If you see a white horse standing in a field don't argue that it might be an albino zebra.

    On countless threads the forum right wingers split hairs, then when called on it announce that the forum liberals are getting bent out of shape, and then announce that they are going fishing because unlike the liberals they have real lives.

    ok, so i would say in this case that the albino zebra is assuming it's a white supremacist signal since it's recently made up, as a joke no less, and since the stupid circle game has been around way longer. and if you play the odds game, how many white supremacists are there vs no white supremacist? makes your albino zebra case just silly.

    Right, he's recording it so he can play a juvenile game with his buddies, because he knew he'd be on TV that day? BS. You're just trying to give cover to a racist pig, for whatever reason. . .

    ok, pun intended, let's look at it this way. guy at the baseball game knowingly puts himself on TV flashing a white supremacy symbol. wouldn't a person that does that be MORE THAN HAPPY to tell you all about his love of white power? wouldn't that guy have white power crap all over his social media? wouldn't people that know and hate that guy be able to tell us all about his white power views?

    maybe he is, and maybe they do, but as of right now WE DON'T KNOW.


    but hey, let's string up some smirking kids while we wait right?

    I've noticed that. Also how people profess to be neutral yet are anything but.

    For the purpose of discussion let's grant that it was made up as a hoax, and even that hardly anyone knows about it.

    It's a WP symbol, and you know about it.

    Do you support the use of the known WP symbol in ostensibly-innocent things like "the circle game"? Why or why not?

    edit: I'm not talking about public policy, or baseball/corporate policy, I'm asking you as an individual.

    well here's the deal. i make the "white power" sign every day. but that's not what it means to me so it's not the "white power" sign. you can say that's what it is, but you're wrong. you don't get to tell me what i mean when i make it. i say it means 3 or OK. making up stupid associations for it and forcing it to apply to everyone is STUPID.

    It must be a circle game tournament. I'm guessing that the Nazis just ended up in the wrong room, oh wait, is that one guy confused? He doesn't seem to know if he is a Nazi or playing a game. It's all so confusing for thinking, rational adults, isn't it?
