    My first thought was:

    “he’s quoting Hitler almost daily now, this isn’t setting off any red flags?”

      When people respond with no, or some sort of justification, thats when you know they also want this.

        My favorite version of this is when they try to lie about what he “meant,” only to then tell on themselves by saying something that’s still awful.

        Like with the recent “poisoning the blood” quote. I saw several people say he didn’t mean ALL immigrants. Okay? That’s still some racist shit. It’s not even lying about crime anymore, it’s straight-up eugenic garbage.

    Bumblebee is the only good Transformers movie.

    You can ignore all the others, but this one is worth it.

      The first two Bay movies hold a special place in my heart. They may not be good, but they’re enjoyable and cool as fuck

        Really the only thing I remember about the first one is that after the movie was done, I realized I was on the edge of my seat basically all movie. It might be dumb, but it succeeds as an action movie.

        3 sad better than 2. He lost me at 4. The Dinobots deserved so much better.

        The opening of the first one is actually really good. Just a shame about what came after.

        Wasn’t 2 completely fucked by the writers strike?

          First just felt the most realistic to me (probably because it had a lot of military scenes and was probably a Pentagon propaganda) and a lot of the interactions between the humans just made sense to me.

          2 wasn’t that bad imo because I only watched it for cool robot fights and a lot of the scenes were still memorable. Next ones get progressive worse, literally the only thing I remember is that they had Sentinel Prime, robot dinos, and robot knights. Felt like cash grabs

    They do bring that up in the comics and the animated series ( at least the 3d ones). I’m sure more than once I’ve seen Megatron say something like " it’s them calling our ways deceitful, and since we fight for justice we are proud be Decepticons " or something like that.

    Giving them the benefit of the doubt, transformers transform to hide amongst the people, thus decieving them into not knowing they exist
