Oh you'll definitely find them if you look. Especially just before the founding of Israel. Lots of far right / nationalist groups attacking innocents... even among themselves there was a lot of bombing and killing with the various Zionist groups at odds with how they wanted to establish their state.

Attacking a person and their career, to which YOU only care about because YOU play the game, is lazy and selfish. At least change out of your pajama bottoms, go outside, and join the closest 'Free Palenstine' rally if you actually care.

I don't know if I agree. Boycotts are part of the free market. If you dislike someone, why would you want to do business with them?
That said, what she said seems pretty innocuous. She doesn't say Palestine shouldn't exist, which others have, and while she absolutely downplays Israel's role in Palestine's suffering, let's be honest, Hamas is the most immediate issue at the moment. I'd also wager the amount of people angry at her is quite low.

Bibi Netanyahu is a wannabe dictator, though. Just to protect himself from the jurisdiction and to hang on to power, he has given some power to damned right-wing religious extremists in his government. Shame on him, he needs to go. But not even Rabin would have let that attack go unanswered in a massive way. Just like noone expected the US to not react to 9-11.


Sadly they are a pure democracy and as such need a majority in order to have a parliament and active government. Neither Labor nor Likud (the two major political groups) contain enough members to have more than a 50% split, so the fringe nutjobs get a boatload of power and concessions to lump their few vote with a major party. Similar to what goes on here with fringe nutjobs unfortunately. The US isnt the sole owner of political whackadoodles.

Not to say that Nat isnt a bit off the deep end, but political leaders over there are a bit....different based on what they need to contend with daily.

We love to destroy all that we love. It is no wonder we have such a problem with incels, they do this to themselves. Women have to hide themselves behind avatars because everything becomes a witch hunt on the internet.

I don't remember ever reading of huge and successful Jewish terrorist groups, but when it comes to Palestininan terror groups, weeeellllll... Also, I do not remember Israel intentionally attacking people at concerts and raping and mutilating and kidnapping and... Well, all that happened on 10-7 and just like no US president would not have reacted to 9-11, Israel had to react to 10-7. But since forever, the Jews seem to be mankind's black sheep and whatever they do is different and bad.

Damn, now I have entered a political discussion which is something that I try to avoid especially in the last few years with the world population going bipolar/binary and forgetting about shades of gray. Okay, I will try to forget that I have written something in this thread and will try not to look into it again.

Ah yes, the hive of scum and villainy that is the Overwatch fandom, or fan groups of any online game these days.

Why oh why do voice actors or developers keep going on social media? Nothing good ever comes of it.

You'd think their agents would give them some salient Business 101 advice. Rule #1. Keep politics and religion to yourself. Say anything about either at your own peril to your career.

I don't see the issue with her comments. Seem like pretty generic platitudes wanting peace etc.

That said, it's always safer to just say nothing.
Do you have a single fact to back that up?

I cant see how freeing a people from a terrorist group oversight would be a bad thing. The majority of the Palestinians are NOT Hamas supporters but the ones with the guns are the ones that make the rules over there. One bridge at a time...
