  1. if you think that I meant to call you, LongJim, personally racist...you're wrong. I haven't seen you fighting on the "c'mon, we're all a little racist" hill. plus, we've both been posting here long enough and for the most part I pay enough attention to know better. as for who made me arbiter...I don't know...a stupid internet message board? if my opinions/challenges/stances/philosophies were little more than trolling, I'd have long gone the way of CheckFacts, TFLF and EulessEagle. we absolutely don't have to agree, but I read your statement as basically saying "meh, what can you do?" if I'm wrong, please correct me I agree our system is meant to balance contrasting views. I think a debate about taxes and healthcare and economic policy is healthy. I don't think rationalizing a racist remark because it came from a person on my team is finding balance. If you're offended by that...maybe you should be.
  2. says a man who has undoubtedly ordered “Freedom Fries”
  3. ohh...totally can: god's not real. done and done.
  4. hmm...I guess @FirefightnRick doesn't realize that if you tag a poster, hit submit reply and then delete the post, it still alerts said poster. I wonder what clever hippie witticism I'm missing out on.
  5. I mean that “I find my stress level is better managed when I don't worry about what the head clown writes on his twitter feed. The public knew what they were getting when they elected him.” isn’t what I interpret as a vocal denouncement. I honestly don’t know if his initial twitter rant was implicit or accidental racism. (For the record, I’ll say the same thing for Omar’s word choices in discussing Israel...she did walk back diction after it was pointed out). What I do know is that telling people of color to go back to where they came from is unequivocally racist and he has subsequently doubled and tripled down...as he has with numerous other cases of racist dog-whistles.
  6. I think you're mis-interpreting my statement...might be my fault. I fully understand why Trump won the election and don't begrudge one's voting decision, no matter how much I disagree. What I do begrudge is the people and party who for the last 20 years (probably more...that's basically my personal consciousness) have attempted to present themselves as morally righteous...if not down-right superior...now bending over backwards to excuse and justify boorish, xenophobic, RACIST, non-presidential behavior. You personally may not approve or condone it, but many do...many have actually been motivated by his words and actions...see the recent "Send Her Back" chant started at Trump's recent rally directed towards Omar. Trump stokes the crowd's fears and prejudices with gross mischaracterizations of Omar's statements and the largely lily white crowd responds with a bare-minimum xenophobic chant. Maybe you don't approve, but your silence is complicity.
  7. it may end up being the case. I'll at least emerge as intellectually, ethically and principally consistent. the fiscal conservative "moral" majority either has to reconcile the fact that they've traded principle for party...or just admit that wrapping themselves in the flag and the bible has been simply to cloak their inherent nationalism/racism/sexism/bigotry. I guess that's between you and your "god"
  8. again, so much to unpack here...Uncle HG been getting into the sauce after pie this year. just keep your pants on. thank you for at least pressing the enter key a few times. ignoring the xenophobia and more than everyday fun racism... "I hate liars" there has seriously never been a more ironic and hilarious statement typed on these pages. the man wakes up and lies. https://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/statements/byruling/pants-fire/ and a look at how he's doing on promises: https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/subjects/politifacts-top-promises/?page=1 just hilarious.
  9. first off...paragraphs, brah. the "c'mon...we're all a little racist" statement is pretty telling...but that aside, this isn't Uncle Hunter Green complaining about rap music at Thanksgiving. This is the president. and if pointing out racism and decrying it rather than shrugging one's shoulders or masking it as has been the case for decades in this country is your idea of fostering and proliferating racism...again, that might speak more to you. maybe you're right...you'd never see conservatives lining the street with "Fuck Obama" signs. they wouldn't give an opinion for free when you can profit on it: https://www.cafepress.com/+fuck-obama+gifts . give the sanctimony a break.
  10. I mean...maybe? but instead he went full racist. so here we are instead.
  11. telling a person of color to go back to where they came from and separating them from "people of the United States" is racist. plain and simple. which Omar comments? on Israel? "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel." that one? she apologized for the "hypnotized" aspect as an unintended trope, but the sentiment is one I happen to share and agree with. put simply...criticism of Israel, Netanyahu, expansion of settlements and the United States' often default support of the narrative of one protagonist and one antagonist in Israel/Palestine is not criticism of Judaism, Jews and is certainly not Semitic.
  12. So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....it is done here is the actual full quote. pardon me...here is the actual full racist quote.
  13. strong, opinionated women are witches? is it really your take that criticism of American policy, practices, ethics and ethos is not supporting and defending the constitution? because if that really is your take I'll ask...what exactly is MAGA, if not criticism of American policy, practices, ethics and ethos? I'll hang up and listen.
  14. honestly, if it was only this I'd be sitting on my front porch with a big bowl of popcorn and a nice glass of bourbon enjoying the chaos. GMG is a deep dive into the human condition. that's what keeps me coming back. it's an anthropological study and therapy all in one. This is controlled with no meaningful repercussions (save for the occasional redneck wanting to fight you in the Apogee parking lot) A racist president does have real life ramifications. it's dangerous. it emboldens the worst of our society. it normalizes the caging of human beings. and the weighting of political biases over principle on the part of this racist's supporters is either cowardice or acceptance.
