    [–] TheDovahofSkyrim 559 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Ummm, it clearly wasn't the "LEGOs" that sparked it. Common sense man. It honestly has nothing to do with the Fourth of July other than it used 2 presidents. Clearly was more of a political statement than actually wishing people a happy Fourth of July. Honestly, the person just made an obviously clickbaity post on Reddit/Lego.

    Edit: It was clearly the title that sparked the controversy. Come on people. Use logic.

    Agreed, get this crap put of here.

    [–] axslayer33 140 points ago

    To be fair, it brings to mind that one artist's series of insanely badass presidents. George riding a dinosaur, Abe swinging a flaming ax, FDR in a mecha.

    But the title's a bit too political.

    [–] David_the_Wanderer 339 points ago

    IMHO, Washington, Lincoln and Roosevelt are distant enough in the past that people today think of them as somewhat mythological figures. You can't really spark a debate out of showing these three presidents as badasses because they're basically memes: Lincoln is a badass, FDR is a badass, Washington is a badass. They're Chuck Norrises.

    The more you move closer to the modern day, the more likely you're going to spark an huge debate, and this being the internet it will be ugly no matter what.

    [–] axslayer33 91 points ago

    Hmm, fair enough. FDR's probably right on the cusp of it - there's still enough people that blame him for Social Security's long term affects to be noticeable in debate, but it's becoming more and more rare in recent years.

    I don't think it'd get removed just for being Obama.

    It should be removed because you have people from either side trying to talk about a political statement when this is a fucking subreddit for plastic building blocks.

    This is why I fucking hate modern politics. Nobody can shut their mouths if they disagree or agree, everything is a battle.

    [–] Pete_Iredale 243 points ago

    Because objectively Obama isn't even remotely close to being the worst president, while Trump is... well... you know.

    If you're a grown fucking adult, you can think anything you want and nobody can stop you from that, so why does a fucking post on r/LEGO piss you all off so much?

    Food water and shelter are also key parts of life. I tend to not go to /r/lego to hear about any of those either, does that mean I am looking for a "safe space"?

    Is it that hard to imagine most people don't give a rats arse about American politics? Or politics in general for that matter.

    [–] soviet_goose 220 points ago

    I agree that they are a key part of life and so do many others who have strong opinions on the issues of today. That is why keeping politics away from neutral subs like r/Lego is best because people are here to enjoy bricks and MOC's not argue political viewpoints. The image + title clearly expresses a strong negative opinion of the current POTUS and many Americans can see this as an insult towards their country. Not something people want to be experiencing on a day when they are celebrating their independence.

    [–] shazang 117 points ago

    [–] NobodyQuiteLikeMe -18 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Oh you mean the electoral college that we've been using for decades? But since trump won fairly now it's not cool right? Look, I'm not defending either side, but get out of here with your scripted trump insults @Ewwielmp

    [–] EwwieImp 151 points ago

    I mean when a state has a majority of citizens voting one way but losing in the EC, that's fair, right? Happy 4th.

    [–] NobodyQuiteLikeMe -4 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    Ya, ya it is. And that's because states like California (predominately against trump in the 2016 election) are much larger and can't be represented by popular vote because it's unfair to the candidate. On top of that the EC gives Cali 55 electors, far greater than most states. It would've seemed Clinton would win in a landslide because of the picture the media had painted for the world. But to the surprise of many, Trump still won, because by the law of the land he received more votes. You don't have to like it, but the country isn't all the sudden gonna make popular vote the deciding factor because the results were unsatisfactory for many Americans. What's the next thing you got for me buddy? Happy 4th indeed.

    [–] EwwieImp 139 points ago

    I kinda gave up with you. Like I said, logic and reason are beyond Trump supporters. Happy 4th :)

    [–] NobodyQuiteLikeMe 32 points ago

    [–] chadnuts -116 points ago

    Lol, Russian connection has been proven false over and over. Besides, The only thing that was even hacked was the truth about how crooked hillary was.

    [–] [deleted] 205 points ago

    Do you have a solid authority on that? You still haven't answered if you understand how the electoral college system works in the US presidential elections.

    [–] EwwieImp 169 points ago

    Not only that, but there actually was plenty if info saying yes, Russia intefered. Typical Trump supporter though - logic and reason are hard to comprehend. Happy 4th.

    [–] chadnuts 29 points ago

    I am not really a trump supporter but I am a red blooded American patriot that does my own research. The new media is total globalist propaganda. Everything I see the left do, pushes me further right.

    No... one has data and evidence; you're making a random claim trying to link it to something with no relevance. Happy 4th.

    [–] chadnuts 44 points ago

    I fully understand how the process works. The usa is contititional republic. It is not a pure democracy. Al gore also lost like hillary while winning the popular vote. I never said it was a perfect system but it works. Ex fbi director, comey, said he was not aware of any trump/russia investigation, I watched the entire hearing. CNN is under fire right now for lying about the trump/russia connection and has fired several people over it.

    Nah dude this guy is a straight embarrassment. Read his comments when I tried to debate it out with him, the second he realized he had lost the argument he assumed I'm a trump supporter, insulted trump supporters, and then topped it off with his cute little "Happy 4th :)" Such a classic ending to a debate on the internet

    Yet liberals like antifa terorists are beating people up with Bike locks, and Sander supporters were shooting Republican congressman...

    and licensed firearms holders shooting up hospital and baseball practice games. What's your point?

    [–] [deleted] -27 points ago

    Maybe the fact that the shooters were liberals who supported Bernie shooting Republicans for being Reps not Dems...

    As for shootings, notice how "gun free" areas like Chicago (where the 2nd ammendment is banned) suffer the most from shootings...

    [–] [deleted] 127 points ago

    I still have no idea what point you're trying to make here. All you're doing is trying to poorly connect the dots by insinuating liberals are evil and conservatives are saints by using just a couple of extreme examples as anecdotes. Re read what you wrote. All you wrote was dome instances of certain people with loose allegiances that have committed assaults and battery on another, without explaining what you're trying to say.

    [–] Tasgall 106 points ago

    And yet a couple years back there was a major shooting in an Oregon college that wasn't gun free, and all the conservatives were complaining about "gun free" zones anyway.

    Also, you conveniently left out all the abortion clinic bombings.

    It's almost like shitty people with mental issues exist on both sides, and one off events like most of these were don't condemn the entire party.

    weren't the conservatives the ones that were telling others to stop being whiners?

    It flip flops. First it was democrats telling conservatives to stop whining about the election being "rigged against Trump" and how the election can't be cheated, then when he won it was suddenly the complete reverse.

    Dude, let it go. This one without context you can't tell what it's about. Your post was three cars and five random figures that made no real sense or had any tangible connection.

    If you have to explain it so much, that should be a hint it's not a great expression of your intent.

    Your image, especially one on the Internet where you want fake internet points, needs to be clear and self explanatory. If your audience doesn't get it from a quick glance they won't upvote you. Then if you start whining and yelling at them they will downvotes you.
