Red Lighting Camp

Post by Admiral Fukkit » Tue Sep 05, 2017 2:14 pm

I cannot believe what kind of BS is going down about this camp. Apparently they have headdresses and such and do a Native American shtick.
There are people on FB going totally postal over it. Native Americans (well... their ancestors were, really they're just as modern American as anyone is) are claiming all sorts of things like oppression, racism, etc.
one guy apparently didn't even stay in BRC because he was so upset over it.
They want this camp shut down, censored, educated on cultural appropriation...

Wow. Some camp had some stupid costumes, and that's such a huge deal? I better not catch anyone from any other culture dressing like an American in blue jeans and a t shirt!!
That would be intolerable!!!

Or dressing like Dick Cabot and driving a boat on a dry lake.

I hate those guys. Lol.

Oh the huge fucking manatee Admiral!

I think you need to go back to Captain.

You are losing it ...

Now I've seen it all. The Admiral/Captain defending neo-hippie fools and their prayer beads.

The end is neigh.

Don't get me wrong, I think they're stupid too... I just think the people protesting over improper use of Indian culture are even worse.

Imagine what kind of bullshit I've had to put up with in the past with Barbie Death Camp.

They hosted speakers high up in fighting the pipeline. One of them, I believe, is Native American. Perhaps he sanctioned the camp costuming.
