I'm not an American conservative, I don't fit into that traditional block.. but nice try.

I subscribe to conservative views on social issues, other than that my perspective is that of a conspiracy theorist. I don't believe in the left and the right.

You don't need to agree on anything, numerous aspects of leftist ideology goes hand in hand with the agendas of the globalist elite. Your description of progressives in America may ring true, but it's certainly not universally true. Progressives in Scandinavia are conformist to a frightening degree, their narrow thinking would be the envy of the Borg.

Since for over 30 years it's become taboo for people to say what they honestly think.


Taboo... boohoo. If you said what you honestly thought what would happen? Someone might gasp at you? Being gay used to be taboo, still is in many places in the US yet gay people managed through actual persecution mind you to make a place for themselves on the national stage as equals. You're going to cry persecution because someone might look at you funny? Freaking cowards.


To be fair, there's a difference between being deliberately incendiary for kicks, and using a word in a different context. Having lesbian in-laws doesn't stop me, my husband, brothers-in-law, or my in-laws, from saying "That's gay, people" to something stupid. It's not a reflection on gay people nor is it an insult directed at them, it's a repurposed use of the word to mean something else entirely.

Our language is extremely varied, and full of words with multiple meanings. It's idiotic to think all of them apply simultaneously upon utterance. If offense is taken at the utterance, check yourself before you bitch (as in complain, not be one, or be a female dog. Get my drift?)

Ah, Scandinavia...

I should have guessed - of course!

The last line of defense between Western Civilization and the end of the world

Or, so I've been told - by right wing Scandinavians - and their groupies

:-)

Carry on then LaughingGod. You've got your work cut out for you

Trolling with vague comments is all you've done this whole thread.

I simply gave up expecting any type of real discussion and started mimicking your behaviour.

You haven't said anything of substance.. there has been nothing to reply to. Just vague handwaving for pages and pages. And now you mimic me saying that I'm not willing to answer your comments. I've been saying that to you for pages and pages. You're a troll, it's that simple.

But give me anything to actually reply to and I will do that.

I wasn't talking about the word gay pr it's uses... I was talking about actually being gay, I was comparing taboos and how silly it is that someone would be afraid of using a word someone told them was taboo.

And this is why we can't have nice things - any more

How could you possibly have misinterpreted that?

Maybe there's a language barrier? Spira doesn't seem at all vague to me.

You haven't said anything of substance..


But you keep coming back with insults

Why is that?

English isn't your first language - subtlety escapes you here. That I can understand

Still - not my problem

Fair enough, I may have misinterpreted you there. I'll let my post stand anyway, the PC crowd cannot seem to wrap their heads around the word "context" if their life depended on it lately. ("There is no context! Only offense!")

You must be delusional, no right wing Scandinavian would ever say that. Don't talk about stuff you're completely clueless about, it's unbecoming.

You probably don't even know where Scandinavia is.. if you knew the first thing about the current European situation you'd know that Sweden specifically is the most hopeless and god forsaken of European nations. No one has belief in it.

The last line of defence between Western civilisation and the end of the World.. you really tipped your hand with that one. You probably don't even know how ignorant you sound. Russia and Eastern Europe would probably fit that description better than any Western nation.

Oh - but they would - and they have

My Step mom is from Stockholm - I've known plenty of Scandinavians. Norwegians, Swedes - a few Finns...

There's also more than a few here at ATS that have said as much - or more

Who do you think you're fooling Laughing guy? I think you do protest a bit too much - and pout way too much to boot

Condescension perhaps.. insults, I don't know.. might as well call it truth.

See, if you actually had some point you wouldn't be coy about it for this long.

There's no use talking to you if you're not willing to explain yourself. That's why I call your comments worthless, because unless you manage to convey your point, it is without worth. I can't comment on it. Being purposefully cryptic and avoiding explaining it is simply ridiculous and immature.

What really grinds my gears is that most of these people aren't actually truly offended....they choose to be coz its fashionable and makes them feel special. Its a choice...they don't have to be but want to be. These are the same people that will spend hour after hour trolling the internet like the Insult Police armed with a dictionary finding something to take the wrong way...purposefully

AT the end of the day some words are supposed to be offensive....its what they are there for! Ammunition for a right good old fashioned bust up with wordage...doesn't have the same effect yelling pc non insulting insults with an apology tacked on the end and an offer of therapy afterwards

For whatever reason, folk are losing their backbone, their fight and their sense of humour and choosing victimhood

Oh, right... now, tell me why would they view Sweden in that way? All right wing Swedes ever talk about is how DOOMED Sweden is. No one is seeing it as some kind of last hope for the Western world. I should now.

You're clueless.
