The left likes to pretend they have the whole country on their side, but in truth you are the squeaky wheel, the vocal minority.


Ditto buddy, y'all act like the entire nation is behind you when in reality it is pretty even on this issue.

The problem is, you can't hide. People see you.


Talk like that brings the word persecution to mind. Or maybe inquisition?


How??

I mean aside from the prevalent persecution complex that follows this issue.
When you post things on social media or saw them on national TV, people see that.

Just as I refuse to be silent when myself or another is falsely branded a bigot/racist/homophobe by some moron who jumped to conclusions in the middle of a discussion.

The anti-PC movement is not about ignoring racism. It's about reserving the label for true racists.

Are you ready to die for your cause, or will you plead for your rulers to step in and save you from what you helped them orchestrate in the first place?

That's what it is coming down to, whether you want to admit or not. A nation cannot survive with this type of division! Study the fall of Rome........

ATS and their moderators are a bastion of PC-BS. I've made tongue and cheek comments poking fun at hypocrites, had comments pulled and nasty messages sent to me threatening banishment. Heaven forbid we hurt anyone's feeeeeelings.

The group that all the crap PC rules do NOT apply to, are white Christians. Bash away on them any way you want, they're fair game.

We'll see how long my post lasts.

Racist statements aren't difficult to classify. Some seem to think they are, though.

"Debate" IE: Mislabelled, shamed, shouted down, smeared, and character assassination

All the hallmarks of the we care PC crowd.

There is a sexual assault and rape epidemic engulfing Europe right now, and feminists are concerning themselves with the problem of gender specific Happy Meal toys. When feminists turn their backs on actual women suffering and being assaulted on a daily basis for fear of being called " racist "....you know PC has gone too far.

That's a very curious mish mash of something or other, almost sounds like Trumphery.........but you wouldn't be doing that as the big picture would Ya?
It's all very confused, feminists focused on happy meal toys, a rape and assault epidemic engulfing Europe?? (rape and assault BTW is a crime in most countries the last I heard)
So exactly what are you talking about, being so cagey with words...that's almost akin to PC isn't it?

It's easy classify things correctly if you tell yourself you are always right.

I don't bash on Christians.

I actually believe Christ lived, it is an historical record. I have typed that many times on this website. I studied the bible in college.

Also, your description of this website is not correct. If you hate it so much, why are you here?

I don't tell myself I am always right. That is something you erroneously imagine.

I am not following you. I don't describe debate that way.

Debate team in college. My public speaking teacher had Lou Gherig's disease. He passed. He was an awesome teacher, though. He was in the late stages when he was my professor. He would never have been mean. He didn't teach debate that way and he taught though he could barely speak at the end.

Two ways of looking at this are:

1) No genitals means to be gender neutral and not to imply sexism to any gender type

2) Far fetched idea, but maybe the future of birth control...crazy but future harvesting of eggs and sperm to produce test tube babies



WHAT!!!

And take all the fun out of reproducing

Thats exactly what he is pointing out. Many people who find themselves arguing for PC "describe" things in sentimental terms because they believe they are doing things for "good" but they don't ACTUALLY live up to their own portrayal. Because anything to force their version of "good" is "good." Until they get to the end and find they're running out of batteries.

Absolutely not. Debate is about logic.

I find it almost impossible to be logically racist. There is no logic to underpin it.

There is no scientific information, there is no human information. It is just a fallacy.

Division.

I see one group causing division. Whether it is 1/2 or 2/4 or 6/12. ONE group is using division.

Are you debate? Nope. My comment still stands. We are not talking about what debate is, silly.
