I went to my local music store ( it's a chain called Sam Ash) - I was gonna pick up some classical guitar strings.

I noticed that they had put a BLM sticker with a black fist on their door.

Needless to say - I am done with them.

I like them too. One of their reps gives me a call every so often, nice guy.

Their HQ is about an hour from here. They sure were trying to do things right last I knew, but that was before the scamdemic.

Surprisingly, Sam Ash is actually still family owned (largest family owned music chain in US). I only know this because I (somewhat) know one of the kids/Ash’s, and have been commissioned to write some articles for their site. I also worked for GC for a few years (they truly do blow) - they own a lot, like Musicians Friend, Music and Arts, Woodwind and Brasswind, Music 123, but somehow never acquired Sam Ash. Think GC also recently filed for bankruptcy protection; hopefully they disappear soon.

I hope you're right. Musician's Friend is the one 1 was thinking of, you're right.

One of my buddies had a similar experience with a local sex shop and actually went inside to try and talk some sense into the owners. Apparently the "symbol" they posted was actually an advertisement for 30% off fist-shaped toys, and it just happened to look like it.

slaphappy2 6 points ago +6 / -0

LOL. The Sam Ash sticker actually says "Black Lives Matter".

30% off a poop-shoot fisting toy ? Somebody call Hunter Biden, quick.

Why did you go right to wanting to shove it in an ass?

I once got fairly drunk with a buddy in a very blue city. We stumbled into a sex shop in a gay-friendly area where I had the salesguy explain to me what the giant rubber fist was for, which he did in excruciating detail. The block of instruction regarding the thumb was what still haunts me. I quit drinking the next day.

Any time I see one of those signs I make a mental note never to use that business or service. My money will go to someone who at least doesn't publicly and proudly hate me.

None that I know of, and you were looking for guitar strings. Figured I would shoot that at ya.

I thought maybe they were based or something.

I use a couple of local independent stores. The luthier at one store is the only one I trust with my original ‘66 Mosrite.

"a commission that includes no black members"

..........

Uhhhh.........wouldn't that be because they're JAPANESE???

Am I missing something here, or are they genuinely retarded??

I would think the IOC was the one in charge of this decision, not Japan.

Japan also has this crazy attitude where you follow rules and most don't like to see others not follow the rules. Also you mind your own business.

E-dantes 15 points ago +15 / -0

No. Its discrimination against communists by a panel with no communists.

"deemed it to be a domestic political statement unfit for the apolitical, international forum the Olympic Games were intended to be." Suck it, John Carlos!

Apparently the Japanese are also sick of athletes supporting criminal behavior with pro-crime protests.

Cool, I don't want the Olympics to become another political platform in front of the world. We look so stupid when we do.

Don’t participate then.

MaoHadOnly1Testicle 7 points ago +7 / -0

That would force networks to actually show athletes from other countries. There was a video on YT (can't find it right now) comparing Olympic gymnastics broadcasts side by side. Other countries show every athlete, NBC just zooms in on the faces of Americans. It's ridiculous.

assault on the free expression of Black athletes

They don't like it they can stay home. Put their actions behind their words. If the athletes who stay home are correct in thinking they have the support of the American people or the world, their indignation will be reflected in terrible ratings brought on by a sympathetic public tuning out. Haha, not likely. Few anywhere give a rat's ass about grievance mongering petulant children denied their spotlight.

Anyway, I don't give a shit, I won't be watching or following the olympics one way or the other.

God forbid they concentrate on playing the sport they've been training and conditioning for for years.

Fucking suck a dick.

I’m guessing they’re not happy about all the assaults on Asians. Probably.

A ban does not worry a retiring athlete. Becoming famous for "righteousness and bravery" (virtue signaling) does matter to a retiring athlete.

  • An athlete will kneel, will raise fist.
  • Better athletes better make sure that such an athlete will not medal and get a chance to showboat (virtue signaling).

All the reporting on this cites the IOC, not the Tokyo Organizing Committee. The interesting thing is prior to this the USOC said they wouldn’t prohibit such conduct. This is going to be a problem.

Jesse Owens went to Berlin, BTFO the Nazis in front of Hitler, didn’t take a knee, and saluted the flag when it was run up and the Star Spangled Banner was played.

Then Hitler shock his hand and FDR snubbed him. Great example brah
