Forest Regional Message Board
I went to bed with a couple hours to go, but it's a fair shake that it was because HOTA was completely out of it and not defending itself, so we were attempting to limit the points other groups got from farming them.
What a fantastic showing from our faction! Great work Foresters, allies, and commanders! A special shout out to Mount Seymour for being our lead, liaison, planner, coordinator, and commander. The point reversal involved to go from -60,000 to end where we did is absolutely stunning. As I said who knows how many times in the war room... "Follow Orders!" and things work out.
I do wish I'd had a couple more military specialists in my portfolio so I could have been a more active targeter, but c'est la vie. Of my 27 participating nations, only 7 were military, including this account which got 94% irradiated in the initial bombardment and was therefore very slow to produce (not surprising given my current role in Forest - I'm honestly delighted to have survived!) The others remained untouched though, and it is a testament to our "shield gang" that only 8 missiles made it through during the final onslaught, and we easily held the top shield count even after defending all those attacks! What's more, we also crushed HOTA's strike record from last year, while simultaneously reducing them to a smoldering sea of glass even after they thought they had eliminated us from the game. Seeing their reaction in their Discord when some of them realized that we were leading the attack that took them down added a year back to my life.
Great work everybody!
Nations of Forest,
First, congratulations on your unforeseen comeback, sitting safely in AA it was marvelous to watch! Secondly, I found a remarkable YouTube channel, and we think your leaders should view some of its videos.
They lie and misrepresent a huge number of different items in a wide range of videos. From arguing that the electoral college was set up because it gave rural people more power, to that left wingers intend to destroy religion, to the farcical notion that Joe Biden is somehow a socialist, to the massively inflating the number of people killed by communist tyrannies, to the one where they claimed soy was making men effeminate, to the absolutely absurd and evidently false assertion that there's been no global warming since 1997.
And that's just off the top of my head.
Look, I'm not being rude, and I'm not going to waste too much time on this, but trust me when I say that they lie, misrepresent or category error *something* in just about every single video they've ever made. There are much better sources out there, even on youtube, even conservative ones.
And that's not even going into their quizzes that are almost so laughably biased as to almost make you wonder if they are using a 20th century brainwashing technique or are just that silly.
A youtuber called Shaun did a really good series on them, forensically breaking down a number of their videos showing how they predicated on flimsy grounds, built up using faulty logic to reaching a contrairian conclusion. But there are many others as well; in fact, it's almost a cottage industry pointing out that Prager U is wrong.
Prager University is an extremist mouthpiece. They deny climate change, deny that racism and bigotry are problems, claim sexism doesn't exist, and are heavily associated with white supremacists and the alt-right.
Random Thought of the Day: I never thought I'd be able to outspend President Trump, but it turns out that I've paid much more in taxes than he has, and all on a teacher's salary!
Prager "University" is more than sufficient in itself to drive up the downloads of various ad blockers. It's like a less charismatic version of Tucker Carlson in the sense that many statements in isolation, or with wildly different context, could be construed as true, but in between those, there are several gratuitously wrong and twisted statements, so the whole thing is like...yikes.
I have seen exactly one Prager video that made sense and it was making a case that the Civil War was about slavery despite what some Southerners argue. (I initially rolled my eyes when I realized that I had to watch a PU video for a lit course.) States rights to do what?
Apologies for missing the nuclear apocalypse. Real life happened.
PragerU is not for Forest, because PragerU denies (or maybe just ignorant) the environmental stuffs
