That's what they want.

Each side generally wants its ideologues to be frustrated and disgusted with the other side, because that's how the left v. right bipartisan narrative continues to perpetuate itself: though division.

And it's working: most people can't see past it.

Why are you talking as if those minority groups have 10-20 members?

There are approximately 30 million radical Muslims. How on earth is that a minority group?
And I don't know how many members BLM has, but I bet it's hardly a minor group.

Anyway, the whole point is this. I don't care what needs to be done in order to restore security and safety. The stakes are too high, for anyone to be playing with them, just because someone might get offended.

'Democrats' and 'liberals' aren't creating racist hatred in this country, racist people are. Period.

Black.
White.
Liberal.
Conservative.

All of them.


It's funny. We're told consistently by resident ATS members that whenever a shooting happens - those who are doing the shooting are not representative of the "whole," of gun owners.

I see this to be a reasonable sentiment, but it's downright pathetic when the same people scapegoat entire demographs of people - villify and demonize them - for the actions of a small few.

Another example - it's reasonable to say that not "all cops," or even "most cops," are cold blooded killers - and those who are, do not adequately represent the whole.

How this differs from say the Bundites or any other radicalized portion of any cherry-picked demograph that fits the political narrative at the time, well, that's beyond me.

So tell me how have the Liberals contributed to your fear or dislike of these groups? Is it because the Liberals have always been saying those guys are out to get you and other white people...oh wait..that is from your side.

This is dangerous thinking and opens the door for tyranny.

Don't make me quote Ben Franklin.

This is exactly what I'm talking about.

Finger pointing.

Everything is racism to you.

So wait your side constantly plays the narrative over and over again that certain minority groups in this country are violent and then somehow spin it into the Liberals are causing racial tensions?


How does that work?



LOL! That certain minority groups are violent (or are at least way more violent than they need to be!) is part of a narrative? Have to blame that then on the 6pm local new channels and not one side or the other.

So Fox News and the rest of the conservative media are totally innocent of race baiting? It's only liberals and their outlets?

Actually no, just when sites/blogs/news sites play the same story over and over that try to tell us that certain groups of people are to be feared.

The minority group that causes violence is IGNORANT PEOPLE.

They come in all colors and creeds.

This is what happens to a society that averages out to be watching four hours of television a day - per person.

They become obsessed with the tube and especially the media - and the media is in the fear mongering business, and people get scared.

Then the scares people clamor for government intervention to come and save them from all the evil bag bad scary boogeyman terrorists.

It's great.

Well, as someone who's lived most of his life in communism, you can understand where I'm coming from. Personally, I agree with Plato and Aristotle in that too much of freedom and democracy is never a good thing.

At one point, you guys will have to decide weather you prefer having equal rights to everyone, even those who wish to harm you, or do you want to feel safe.

But all of my thinking is based on the assumption that those in power actually care about the people.

Liberals and Democrats especially are total failures.

They are in control of some of the biggest government failure structures in history.

Massive government failures require massive excuses.

Federal level Democrats can't seem to solve any problems at all.

That's what they want.

And it's working: most people can't see past it.




I got to tell you, from my perspective down on the street as it were.......these days its the libs walking around gunned up for a fight, name calling ect as if logic and reason has escaped them. They are rhetoric and emotion driven and so there is not much discussion just take your corner please.

My lib sister in law has threatened to disown her own mother if she votes republican. For an example could give more. Its almost as if she has lost here mind about it.

I'm not playing your game.

Plus, that's an anecdotal logical fallacy.

How in the sweet name of all that is Holy did this get boiled down to partisan talking points and finger pointing??? We have mixed Government, from both parties, and still are falling apart. We have some very nuanced and difficult problems that have nothing at all to do with political parties.

We have a militarized and highly fetishized police body in the US.
We have a cultural fetishization and obsession with guns and violence.
Arrest and conviction data does actually show racial disparity - something we keep failing to address.
We have wars on poverty and drugs that are just that - wars on our own population.

And the list of causation goes on and on.

But rather than fix the damn problems, we do this... Point the finger at the other, seeking to assign blame based upon identity politics.

A feel good move that won't fix a single thing.

It's not spin just listen to the news and check social media.

This is a liberal agenda to get votes. It's a commonly employed tactic by the Democrats to get votes.

Make the right look racist.

Just check Hillary and Bernie's websites and Twitter that's all the proof you need.


Your side is constantly demonizing Muslims, BLM and other minority groups and then spin it to "The Liberals are causing this".

AGAIN...how does that work?


And liberals are constantly DEMONIZING the rich,bankers,ceo's,gun owners, COPS,Christian's,JEWS,and ANYONE else they happen to HATE at the moment.

And LIBERALS were going around DEMONIZING the Tea Party

So ENOUGH of that FAUX outrage.

Truth be told.

Liberals are the biggest bunch of BIGOTS this country has ever seen.

That's because when people take off their rose color glasses.

The American Public isn't a pretty sight to behold.

The POLICE see the true face of this country EVERY single day.
