Decadent Knitting Communities! By Mrs (Sally Anne) Charles Taylor
Hopefully if the liberals keep poking the old dog with their sharp sticks long enough, maybe the dog will snap back. The following story shows how crazy things are getting, and how a useless fool like Trump, merely from mouthing a few false wishes has set the Left off, even those who knit. Knit? Who even thinks about that; I am as old as the pyramids and I don’t have time to knit, spending my days, when I am not laying down in pain, getting more pain researching articles for various anti-abortion American sites and helping my husband feed you guys:
“One of the biggest knitting websites in the world, which claims to have more than 8 million members, has announced that it will ban users from expressing support for Donald Trump, saying that to do so constitutes “white supremacy”. On Sunday, administrators for Ravelry, a site for knitters, crocheters, designers and anyone dabbling in the fibre arts, said that they were making any expression of support for Trump and his administration in forum posts, patterns, on their personal profile pages or elsewhere permanently off limits. “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy,” the site’s administrators said in a post. Users could also be permanently banned under the policy. The Trump ban comes only months after political upheaval gripped the knitting and crochet community around issues of racial and cultural insensitivity. That debate was sparked by popular knitwear designer and blogger Karen Templer, who wrote in January about a planned trip to India, likening it, in her excitement, to visiting Mars. Many in the craft community objected to the characterisation, calling it othering and reductive. Templer apologised soon afterwards, but the incident had a ripple effect, sparking off conversations about diversity and inclusivity in the craft community on Instagram, Ravelry and other places that crafters congregate online. A similar debate about cultural sensitivity and appropriation recently occurred in the sewing community.
We are banning support of Donald Trump and his administration on Ravelry. We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy. More details: https://ravelry.com/content/no-trump …

Ravelry said its new policy was not banning participation from people who supported Trump, only expressions of that support. “We are not endorsing the Democrats nor banning Republicans,” the post said. “We are definitely not banning conservative politics. Hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions.” The policy drew on a similar statement made last year by roleplaying game site RPG.net, which banned advocacy of Trump from its forums on the grounds that the Trump administration was an “elected hate group”. “His public comments, policies, and the makeup of his administration are so wholly incompatible with our values that formal political neutrality is not tenable,” said RPG.net’s administrators in a post. “We can be welcoming to (for example) persons of every ethnicity who want to talk about games, or we can allow support for open white supremacy. Not both.” The knitting and crochet community has played a prominent role in the anti-Trump movement in the past, with women wearing homemade pink “pussy” hats to demonstrations around his election and inauguration becoming a distinctive symbol of protest against his presidency.”
The pathologically insane Democrats basically consider that anything less than open borders and medals of honour for each illegal and Democrat voter, is racist. I cannot wait for these largely white liver-liberals to be replaced by Hispanics and Muslims. That will be interesting, and an inevitable consequence of their racially suicidal policies.
The Guardian, although Left wing, does an excellent job summing things up and getting all of the main points down, while some of the Dissent Right mags tend to wallow in misery too much. Anyway, the example well illustrates how insane politics has now become, and that a great divorce, probably precede by a bloody Civil War 2.0, may be, sadly, inevitable.
