    WTF does this have to do with neo-nutzis?

  4. >i dont sell weapons to people that ask stupid questions about the guns
    Oh boy, i forgot that everyone knows the law like the back of their hands and exceptions dont exist, if people were asking him what a gun does i get it, but if someone asks you hey, what would legally happen to me if x, y or z were to happen in regards to my gun, just answer the question, no need to be an exceptional individual about it

  5. By "limit my exposure to graphic content" I'm sure he means seeing opinions that are different from his own, and what the fuck is he even recovering from? Some mean words? Seeing too many white dudes in one area? Jesus fuck someone drop this weak bitch in the middle of warzone with a handycam so he can get a real taste of PTSD inducing journalism.

  6. "Chris Schiano — a reporter with Unicorn Riot who covered the Tiki torch march on UVA’s campus — also worked on the Discord leaks....Speaking with The Outline, he recalled that going through the violent logs was stressful — even though, as a white man, he knew he wasn’t a target of these groups."
    I can almost assure you that the people protesting at Charlottesville, assuming that the attack was intentional (there's some question as to whether the dude in the car was spooked by an antifa member who was threatening him with a gun), would have felt as little remorse for this soyboy as they did for Heather Heyer. Hell, considering how much the alt-right hates journalists, they might have been even more pleased with themselves.
    Also, lol at “Especially in this job, I find myself drinking more than I want to. It’s not a great coping mechanism,” Maybe Trump Derangement Syndrome has been partially fuelled by journos becoming drunkards :story:

  7. Now, I'd understand a journalist having PTSD after covering war, genocide, or other extremely traumatizing situations. But this? No. Stop diluting the word and the disorder to where we stop taking people with legit conditions are questioned and doubted.

  8. There are plenty of journalists that do get PTSD. Usually they're war correspondents, though. Joseph Galloway, for example, was in Vietnam and so close the fighting he had to help pull bodies back to safety. If you ever see him talk about his experiences you can see they fucked him up just like the soldiers he was deployed with.

  10. I really hate the abuse of mental illness to get ass pats.

    I had a family member who had PTSD you know how he got it? Watching Japs flame throw his men. Boys, not even needing to shame ripped to hell and back by napalm. Guess what? he raised a family, had a life, hobbies, friends etc.

    Does PTSD fuck you up? Absolutely. Is treatment exponentially better than it was during ww2? Yes. The people I truly pity are vets as we have so much care and we let them drink themselves to death in the street, while this little faggot saw a pepe and is gonna get disability bux.

  13. Pretty much. My great-uncle got shot in the hand by the VC and had to pretend to be dead and also witnessed the death of his friend. He had a drinking problem for years after. PTSD fucked him up big time but he has a normal life now. He has kids and a family and works. This is just embarrassing, honestly. These fuckers are just going to whine and expect everyone to cater to them.

  15. I find it absolutely baffling, and disgusting, that soldiers going through real hell overseas were denied any kind of help for their PTSD, or even any kind of recognition, yet complete mongoloids like the writer of this article get megaphones to whine about people whose opinion differ from theirs.

  16. Audie Murphy, probably one of the most badass soldiers who fought in World War II, suffered from severe PTSD following the war. He took sleeping pills just so he wouldn't have nightmares about the war, and he slept with a loaded pistol under his pillow. After going cold turkey with the sleeping pills, he suffered emotional outbursts that alarmed friends and family. Because of all this, he openly spoke about his experiences with PTSD to spread awareness about the condition and so people could help returning veterans of Korea and Vietnam.

    In spite of everything, Murphy used the memories and trauma the war gave him to try and help veterans of the then-current wars, knowing full well they would be going through the same shit he was going.

    This bitch on the other hand uses PTSD as an excuse for asspats and justification for being a fucking pussy.

    What a world we live in now. People like Murphy are rolling in their graves.

  18. Meanwhile you have shit brains like Gregory Silcido and all these other campus liberals that consider the guys that have to put up with these afflictions to be murderers and the lowest of the low.

    While I know that not every veteran on earth is an angel worthy of constant praise (McCain being a big example of this, gets taken prisoner and wants to throw other young men into harm's way) and I agree the "murica! glass all dem carpet jockeys and let gawd sort em out" crowd is exceptional as fuck, you have to be a very special kind of pissbag to think that the trauma of looking at mean words on a screen even vaugely compares what those guys have to go through.

    The biggest bit of solace in all this is that while the vets get their memorials, no one will ever remember the names of these spoiled, over-pampered hipsters
