i pointed out the stupidity of the left back then too and ill continue to do it.....get over it


I agree. Please speak your mind. Point out the stupidity you see, but make sure there is actually something to point out, make sure you're pointing at the right people and don't forget that you're not supposed to make yourself look stupid in the process.

You know, ive never owned a confederate flag, never flown a confderate flag and coudnt give a s**t about the flag, what irks me about it is the feigned outrage from the left, people getting mad over a piece of cloth, and other liberals jumping on the anger bandwaggon because if they dont people will think they are racist lol...FEIGNED outrage.


Yet here you are whining about it when the controversy is already done and settled.


theres three thing i heartily dislike in this world, liberals, radical feminists and misandrists....

ok im done


Awesome. You sound like a pillar of political compromise... /sarc


you mistake whining for pointing out the stupidity of the left


Pointing it out a month or so after the controversy has died down though is either sour grapes or whining.


i pointed out the stupidity of the left back then too and ill continue to do it.....get over it


Apparently YOU are the one who needs to get over it. Since YOU are the one still complaining about it. Like I said, this issue has been settled already. The poor horse was already buried in the ground and you just HAD to dig it back up and start beating on it again., and all so you can have an excuse to whine about liberals.

Since symbolism is for the weak minded why perpetuate it by demonizing the symbol in the first place? SO the rainbow flag people are weak minded too with this logic correct?

By people breaking the law? Well those people should be caught and arrested. That's a local issue and not an entire nation issue.

None of those things are going to transpire. Wants and reality don't necessarily align. If you were to actually follow up on all of those things now you'd probably find that there is no STRONG push by anyone on the left for any of those things. There may be a few still whining about it, but nothing major. But hey following up may require you to see that even liberals are human too and know when an argument is over. Can't have that can we? Must hate them liberals no matter what!

Fine. Beat that poor dead horse.

Well then I guess you have no issue with us calling people who fly the confederate flag racist.

Just look who shows up to the protests.

Since we are in the business of blanket generalizations here.

No, but you gotta admit, all your actual "speakers" are pretty damned crazy. You should never have allowed Nancy Pelosi, Al Sharpton, Keith Olbermann, Al Gore, Howard Dean, Cindy Sheehan, and Rachel Maddow to become your party's approved public mouthpieces because brother, they're batcrap crazy and don't do y'all any favors. (And yeah, the same can be said for the Right, but I'd argue on a lesser scale.)

No issue whatsoever. Call me whatever you like, I honestly couldn't give a crap.
Way too much credence and "give-a-damn" has been placed into people's beliefs in regards to accusations of "that's racist," "that's terrorist," "that's bigotry," etc. Personally, I give no power or authority to anyone's opinion of me. It makes life a lot easier.

They don't speak for all Leftists. Most of those people are crazy. But I wonder how you can call people Like Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh, Levin, Santorum and others "lesser" on the scale of bat # crazy.

I know we all have our pride and prejudices, but at least we could be honest.

Honestly?

I honestly don't believe with something like this people's "feelings" are being hurt, or people are truly offended.

People just want to scream, yell, stomp their feet and have a tantrum about something. People want attention. People want to be heard, and people want to prove people wrong.

That's really what it comes down to with this whole "P.C" thing. People just want to feel heard.

Let them be heard. I will listen. That's the least we can do.

But don't expect some of us to sit idly by while they blame the stupidity of others on a wide range of people and politicl beliefs.

I'm a socialist, a leftist, and even I disagree with this flag/dixie garbage. But it makes it real hard for me to side with people when they want to blame me for it right off the get go.

I don't consider those people as the speakers of the left.
Just like I am sure you don't consider the Coulters and Bachmans as the spokesmen of the right.


I don't think you are a racist based on flying the flag, it was just a point about the blanket statements.

So you are going to demonize the practice all while taking part in it.
That is the funny part of it.

I'm arguing that it's on a lesser scale for the right primarily becuase of the vast difference in reporting thanks to media bias. When a GOP pundit says something profound, it's aired on FOX... when a GOP pundit says something profoundly stupid, it's aired on FOX, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, Comedy Central, HBO, etc.

I honestly believe the Al Gores, Al Sharptons, Nancy Pelosis, and Harry Reids are utterly and completely bat snip insane. These are people who seem to have cracked shells 24/7. I'm not sure I've ever seen Nancy Pelosi and not had "psycho" be the first thing that popped into my head. Gore has essentially been the SchizoMan since he left the White House. Like I said, yeah, the Right has their loony tunes as well, but damn it is way less among them from where I stand.

And "they don't speak for all leftists"... good, THEN QUIT GIVING THEM POWER AND STOP DOING WHAT THEY DEMAND!!! The majority of leftists dance like puppets when one of these aforementioned abnormal marrionettes pulls the strings. Stop doing that and folks will stop thinking that they speak for you all.

That's not true. It's aired on Fox, CNN a few other outlets and all of talk radio. We cannot forget that there is no such thing as left-wing radio. Let's also not forget the vast Right wing internet machine. They are not being left out of the media in any shape or form.



GOP pundit says something profoundly stupid, it's aired on FOX, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, Comedy Central, HBO, etc.


Agreed. And every time someone on the left does or say something stupid it is trumpeted just as much. You;re a moderator here. You see the sheer amount of threads bashing the left, usually out of context and sometimes completely untrue.

Don't try to play the victim here and pretend that the Right does not have just as much invested in the game. That's intellectually dishonest.



And "they don't speak for all leftists"... good, THEN QUIT GIVING THEM POWER AND STOP DOING WHAT THEY DEMAND!!


Don't preach to me. I disagree with the Left almost as much as the Right, because they are just lite-Republicans, but I seem to spend most my time trying to combat idiocy and lies from the Right wing propaganda machine (something the Left only wishes they had). If the Right would quit spreading fear, lies and propaganda maybe we could sit down like adults and address the issues.

Most of us on the left are actually reasonable, but when you come to the table with absolute nonsense it's hard to move forward.



The majority of leftists dance like puppets when one of these aforementioned abnormal marrionettes pulls the strings. Stop doing that and folks will stop thinking that they speak for you all.


Really? That's humorous considering the actions of the Right. Haven't the folks on the right acted like little puppets on the issues lately?

Planned Parenthood
Hillary Clinton
Confederate Flag
Anything Obama

and now the "dixie" issue? Want me to continue?

All due respect, but this is yet another kettle meet pot moment.
