Middle eastern (kurd) here, please don’t compare your extremists with the taliban, isis or any terrorist organization,

We as kurds and muslims from northern iraq (90% muslim majority region) suffered more from muslim extremism and terrorism than any nation has, I have lost many peshmarga family members fighting against isis and other rebel groups, this is not a fair comparison, one would behead your family if you don’t support them (they don’t care if you’re muslim, Christian, jewish or yezidi) and the other Americans would hold guns to look cool.

If you really think we have it better here, then move here.

The Americans pictured aren't extremists. There's a movement by the progressives in America to label everyone they don't agree with politically as Nazis and murderers, even though there's been far more left-wing political violence in America over the last 5 years.

Having fought the war in Afghanistan myself, I have seen Muslim extremists do absolutely horrific things to innocent people. I can't imagine what you have to live through on an everyday basis, and I'm sorry that some ignorant fool thinks this is a proper comparison. I hope someday you and your family are able to live safely and without fear.

They do not understand true extremism, and only hold the privileged views they do because they have had the good fortune to never have to deal with any real oppression, hardship, or difficulty in their entire lives. They are children who hate their parents and are desperate to rebel, they create their own oppression so they can pretend they’ve been through something similar to you.

Top Gear literally let one of these get washed to sea, waited for the tide to fall, then pulled the truck out, started it after 40 minutes of a mechanic cleaning out the hood area but having zero spare parts, and drove away. They're indestructible lol.

u/thejeero Oct 20 '21

WhistlinDiesel on YouTube also got his hands on a proper Hilux. There’s a 3-part series on his destruction of one.

He beat the living crap out of it at home, rolled it, bent the frame, tortured it by pulling an excessively heavy trailer, etc etc.

Then he took it to the Utah desert and beat on it some more there. I’m going off memory here but I believe halfway through he lost his coolant or something so the truck could have died literally any time but it just kept going and going and going. He got out of the desert and it was still running.

The guys he was riding with had proper rigs that were built for way worse punishment and one of them broke down, lmao.

Oh and then he dropped it from a helicopter. Twice.

The rally was suppopsed to be held at the Stone Mountain Park in response to a demonstration held there in July 2020 by armed far-left wing black militia who demonstrated at the park, which is famous for its Confederate memorial. However officials closed the park and warned people to stay away from the area should violence break out if militias from opposite groups confront each other. EPA-EFE/John Amis.

I'm from Europe too. I think people over here just buy the trucks for the looks, and the Ranger (or Raptor) leans heavily on its styling... The Hilux feels more like a commercial vehicle, at least in its basic form. But commercial vehicles over here are mainly vans, cause they are more practical. The Hilux is a go-anywhere commercial vehicle (4x4 vans aren't as common).

I guess we'll see if LX sales increase by the same amount as annual Land Cruiser sales, which would mean those customers are migrating over to the Lexus version.

But I suspect those previous Land Cruiser owners didn't go for the Toyota because they couldn't afford the Lexus. They very well may be even more wealthy than the Lexus buyer, and specifically chose the Land Cruiser because it is less conspicuous. Moss regular folks just see the Toyota badge and assume it is a Highlander or 4Runner.

I'm the most anti-war guy in the room, and understand what's creating the situations in the middle east. But I would never for a second compare people who kill civilians by the thousands, subjugate women, and enslave Africans, to some loser militia group.

I promise you if you spent a week living with each as a neighbor, you would definitely see the difference.

It's insane how the left went from being anti-war, anti-police state, and against FBI entrapment schemes, to being the loudest supporters of them just because the war hawks have convinced you some white trash hillbillies are more of a threat to you.

The Land Cruisers are similar, you probably have some of those up there :)

Depending on the model, a Land Cruiser has a similar chassis and suspension, though the more modern ones have a more sophisticated on or off road independent coil spring suspension compared to the Hilux which generally just has classic leaf springs (but both are very capable off road, and there is just a handful of cars that could match a Land Cruiser - probably a Land Rover Defender and a Mercedes G Wagen, and not much else).

To be fair, the guys on top rarely leave the suburbs. That Ford only needs to be able to handle the Walmart parking lot and maybe Sonic.

The truck in the top picture is carrying a much heavier load, though.

Some variation of this has been posted with no context on r pics at least one hundred times. Why was this ever upvoted, let alone continually sent to the top of /r/all? They need to ban all these nonsense political posts here that appear to be botted. Either that, or Reddit is filled with morons.

Taliban just executed a young woman for playing volleyball. I get the idea behind this comparison, but they’re two different extremes

A lot of the comments are weirdly coming off as hero worship for the Taliban. Reddit is a strange place.

Because an alarming number of Americans, of any persuasion, are the kind of idiots that view all moral issues as a black and white dicotomy, even if the issues are unrelated. Or nuanced. Or where everyone involved has shit on them.

They have to frame everything as good guys and bad guys, take sides, and invalidate all competing perspectives entirely. Politics is their religion and mythos. Any idea that threatens it, must be purged.

The whole fucking society has oppositional defiant disorder. More so conservatives, but the left has it's share of gibbering morons. Most of them on Reddit.

For the trump loving conservative, all non Christians are active devil worshipping child molesters. For the pink haired vegan tankie, everyone that looks like their dad is a wife beating rapist who revels in dominating minorities.

No self awareness, no compassion, no interest in disagreeing with someone without the desire to harm or smear them.

And any normal person is so fucking tired of the psychos that we no longer have the energy or interest to collectively tell them to shit the fuck up. We just want them to pay for their purchases, and stop yelling at the sky.

It’s as if religion has been replaced by The Party.

Also, look at you throwing out the ODD diagnosis. Worst patients to treat.

Gonna get buried in the thousands of comments already, but I will say this each and every time this comparison gets made in all its various forms

Put a gay man in front of each of those trucks, and see which one doesn't stop.

u/Themightytoro Oct 20 '21

these comments really worry me. are people trying to defend the taliban by saying that there's other people out there who also do terrible things?

Information manipulation in an attempt to subconsciously influence ideas of the masses. Nothing is more dangerous than an idea.

You must not be gay or a woman then. Because the guys in the top photo wouldn't stone either of the aforementioned groups to death for doing nothing like the guys in the bottom photo would.

Bottom is a terrorist organization that has actually murdered people, oppressed women, and has actual power.

It’s funny to pretend they are one in the same. It’s pure Idiocy to believe it.

Well one group is on its way to throw gays off buildings, skin humans, genetically mutate females, hang dissenters off helicopters. The other is going for tactical Target practice. The fact that you can't tell the difference is something entirely wrong with you. Hope you come to meet the guys on the bottom one day
