Taco: Of course I don’t need to ask. We all know what the answer is.
Dave: Most religions reject polygamy because lonely, sexually frustrated women are less likely to become mass shooters than lonely, sexually frustrated men (Islam being the exception because it *wants* its men to kill). Might there be a middle ground, allowing just enough polygamy that everyone who wants to marry can?
Max: “Before I waste 6 minutes watching this, is Bill Whittle about to talk about gun violence in America for 6 minutes without once mentioning race?” Did not watch video, but do you really need to ask? #cuckservative
