Everyday its becoming more apparent that this religion simply doesn't work in western societies.
I have seen so many debates turn into circular arguments that don't even make sense... it's a total waste of everyone's time. If the SJW's had put this much effort into the homeless and non-minority disadvantaged we would at least have those people becoming a net benefit to society again. Instead they argue all day, everyday for "diversity" and stripping white hetero men of any privilege they have left. Their whole outlook is a total shambles, they are now effectively millstones around the necks of their own societies.
SJW's claim to be intellectually and morally "enlightened" yet they don't even have the self awareness to understand why people are becoming fed up with their BS. Over the last few months I have seen numerous debates online where they simply have nothing intelligent to say except that their opponent is racist... literally, that's it - their responses look like this: You oppose my views and that's racist, so who cares what you say; you shouldn't even be allowed to live. Everything is based on feelings and emotions, facts simply don't matter.
All I want is to wake up one day and see "islam in the west assigned to the scrap heap of history" plastered all over the news, then I'll know that modern western society has one less thing holding it back so it can start spending more time focusing on the future.

Fair enough - i'm not going to try to convert you.
How long have you been in the service?
Are you army or marines?
Are you looking forward to what bombing
the middle east will mean for us?
Are you currently deployed?
I'll tell you for my own part - I've never met a
soldier so ready for war like you.
I suppose this is a new stance.
the only time I've seen a gay person be oppressed is in school by bullies. Hell, they bully straight people just as much. Queers need to find something better to do than claim oppression when none exists.

Students at the University of Maryland have released a list of 64 demands in their effort make the campus more amenable to "Marginalized, American Indian, Black, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, Pro-Palestine, and Undocumented" students.
Is it just me, or are letters being added on a weekly basis to the LGBT label. I honestly have no idea what the "I", the "A" or the "+" are supposed to stand for. To save everybody time and effort, why not just contract this to NH (non heterosexual)?
...scholarships for “students of marginalized communities,” a ban on Columbus Day, beginning every on-campus event with an acknowledgement that “this is Indigenous Land,” that African American professors get tenure, that preferred pronouns are included on rosters, and that “queer diversity training” is required
This an interesting mix of nutty demands, entertaining to a degree as well...until one realizes that these kids are likely actually serious.
If I were a parent of any of these kids, I would only have one demand. Knock it off, concentrate on your studies, or next Semester's Tuition cheque is going to bounce.
Muslim students also want “one room in each major building designated for prayer” and “shuttle services to [the local mosque] for Muslim students to have access to a place of worship.”
When it comes to Christian and Jewish belief systems, there is constant pressure to have all things religious banned from the education system. Muslims meanwhile expect more and more accommodations for their belief systems...one room in every building for prayer, and shuttle services, of course...where are the atheist activists when you need them (oh, forgot - they are busy this time of year trying to eradicate Christmas)?
More Campus Craziness
As College administrations and professors continue to slide left, they react to, and try to accommodate, even more left and loony students...safe spaces, play dough, stress dogs, no grade systems, speech control including the pronoun police, etc... One has to wonder what will have to happen before the grown ups will finally insist that students, I don't know, focus on learning their chosen field of study.

Its simple economics.
I've employed Muslims before. Getting them out before nightfall during Ramadan? No problem at all...just need to communicate in advance so i can accomodate.
We just let them use an empty conference room or training room. The same room we'd use for breastfeeding moms. Accomodating people isn't difficult at all. You really don't even have to try. You just have to try to not be confrontational. And what i've found: my accomodation was appreciated, and added value to the employee's performance.

Good it makes it EASIER to know whom to arrest.
