Hypocrisy is what I hope people get out of the thread.

My team is better than your team no matter what. Tired and over done, your team needs to know when they are being stupid.


Nope, it is not about that. What Obama said had some meaning, he said, 'did not come here voluntarily'. Obviously, immigrant means came from one country to another to live. They immigrated.

Carson went on to say the slaves that involuntarily were dragged from their families and homes worked harder for the American Dream. In the beginning, most worked hard because if not, they would be whipped or killed or sold away from their family.

Later generations of slaves with a view toward freedom worked to keep their family together and get their own piece of land.

Two entirely different subjects and Carson is a moron.

Because one works for the Republicans now and all Republicans are evil because Trump is the president and the other is our savior and god like figure Obama mama and he is a Democrat and we all need to remember That Hillary is supposed to be president and not Trump the white devil.

Because we have something call "Popular vote".

Yes I am ranting and been very sarcastic.

But Obama said a very similar thing.

Similar doesn't mean the same.

The difference is that state of mind of those who made the trip.

they are both idiots

yay?


Not sure I'd say they are both idiots. They both have their smarts in certain areas for sure.

But the statement that slaves are immigrants is still idiotic.

At least Obama had enough sense to dial it back a little and the difference between his statement and Carson's is pretty clear. Personally I just wouldn't have said it at all, but that's me.

Lot's of opinion, the statements are very similar. Both O and Carson brought up immigrants. And both talked about a brighter future.

No big deal here other than liberals false outrage.

Who said the same thing? They are different comments with similar meanings.

I don't have false outrage. I do not possess it. When I am outraged, you will know.

All I did here was type responses. I was not outraged.

Trump has used a teleprompter. Lots of times. Some say Trump cannot read. But on that point I differ, since he has successfully used a teleprompter.

FYI, I wouldn't call it outrage. They think the statement is a dumb thing to say.

I'd say the false outrage is coming from anyone lashing out at liberals for thinking the statement was dumb.

Maybe you should make another thread exposing my false outrage about your false outrage now too??

Then I can make one about your outrage towards me and we can keep this going until we drown out every other post on ATS over this dumb sh*t.

Right one said their state of mind was that of hope for happiness, and the other said their state of mind was being inspired by previous people and having faith for a better life for their family.

Any reasonable person can see thaat this is basically the same thing.

Just tell the truth. You like Obama so it was ok, but you hate Carson so it was not ok.

And yet different enough.

Obama is talking about slaves already here who actually had a history and even had a chance to be free.

Carson is talking about people in ships making the trip as if they actually had any idea where they were being taken.

Tell me that Samuel J's outrage was for realzees. It got his face on the news. If was in fact fake.

This is not what the thread is about. Stick to the subject.

Is that aimed at me?

I don't care one way or the other about either of them.

Yet different enough and I pointed out where.

Slaves are immigrants. So are young women smuggled into the US to work as prostitutes but they are not in the same frame of mind as someone who got a visa to work or study in the US.
