Anti-Hero did an amazing series a few years ago.

I wish I would have bought more of the series.

not a fan because 99% the time it's just some guy that i otherwise would have respected making it known to everybody that they have an infantile expectation of how the world should work

Yes! Especially when it involves right wing conspiracy theories and alien abductions.

It’s sick when pros are transparent, as long as they’re ok with being judged on it. If someone’s a conservative fuckhead they can get in the bin, that’s freedom of speech babyyyy.  Unfortunately most conservatives confuse that with being free from repercussions because they’re dumb fuckheads.

Goodcurbs - how do you feel about the unjust tyrannical treatment of Bam Margera, the marginal pro, certified jerk from 20 years ago?

https://youtu.be/hW2tqff00Zw I think April deserves an Oscar for all of this. I don't think Lima deserves all the heat on her. April's the one behind it. She probably is psychologically damaged by bam so now she's trying to get him locked up. It's really easy to get family members locked up. I think ape has been giving Lima the go with Steve-O O orchestrating the whole thing.

It's messed up what they're doing to him. Locking him up without due process. Gaslighting him up. It could happen to anyone.

I’m all for it. It makes me appreciate some pros more and ignore others.

As a public figure or just any person on the internet, they shouldn’t be mad if they get kooked for their opinions. If you don’t want to catch heat for it, don’t put it out there. Doesn’t matter where you are on the political spectrum

sounds like it does
i don't want to link to the channel because is promotes athiesm.

I mean say what you want about the tenets of political pro skateboarders, dude, at least it's an ethos.

I'm pretty tired of a lot of political posturing, but to me one of the most political acts in skateboarding in the last 10 years was when Ryan Lay filmed in Palestine, and is an ambassador for SkatePal.  Just skating in Palestine is inherently political, and broadcasting from what is essentially an apartheid state but from the side of the oppressed is pretty rad.

When I agree with them it’s cool

And when I disagree with them it’s lame

I know a lot of people who’ve encountered Danny Renaud and thought he was lame. I personally like his style.

Joey Pepper, Dave Caddo, and Steve Durante rip too.

I just wish that Brian Brown wouldn’t have quit so early. They had a good thing going at first and that triangle owl logo was pretty sick.

if there's some woke/fashion loser it's irritating and I kind of only want to watch their slams... if on the other hand they're based and have the courage to go against the Zeitgeist I love that s***

As soon as someone uses the word "woke" as pejorative, it tells me all I need to know about them.

Honestly, it shouldn't bother anyone to see pros advocating for things like basic human rights (such as LGBTQ rights, immigrant rights, and anti-colonialism).  I take issue with pros who are posting whacky conspiracy theories and other right wing shit like QAnon because that stuff actively causes real life harm.

yes. i go skateboarding to get away from shit like politics so i cant stand when people bring it up on the message board etc.
i have never been about spewing hate so i think its funny people label me this or that when i acutally just dont want to talk about it while i am skating

cant stand when people use skateboarding as a platform to push ANY sort of agenda tbh. even if it is one that i support. i sympathize with ppl who are oppressed for sure but i dont understand why a certain thing like sexuality or skateboarding has to become your entire personality

Look up how vague his issues page is. It doesn't really say anything of substance.

i’ve read grocery lists with more depth
