Quite a catch 22 there.

Them being a lot of minorities how ever could liberals criticize them?

Good for them for practicing their right to protest, but I remember a thread from a day or two ago where people peacefully walking out on Mike Pence at a Notre Dame commencement speech was met with nothing but disgust by right wing members, now those same ones are applauding these people protesting on someone's front lawn.

My how times have changed around here. "My party does it: awesome! The other party does it: that's so disrespectful!"

Double standards everywhere.



Nah-uh! Don't play that card. The Notre Dame walkout involved an invited speaker/dignitary at a graduation event... those graduates were there to graduate, not make a political statement or grandstand. This involves dissatisfied constuents taking the fight directly to their so-called "representative." Two completely different situations.

False equivalence.

In regards to the pence situation, nobody said they didn't have a right to walk out. Most people didn't like how they handled the situation, it was very selfish, spoiled, entitled, blah blah of them. Now if they didn't get dressed up in their cap and gowns and held signs outside, nobody would've said peep. < Fact

But instead they wanted to play dress up, attend the ceremony just so they could show everyone how entitled they were by sending a message and walking out. They sent a message alright..

Again, they were well within their rights to walk out, and people are well within their rights to be disgusted.



This right here though, is how you should protest.

Has nothing to do with 'my party, your party'

I am confused ... was Maxine giving a speech at a ceremony to be interrupted by the behavior?

Personally, I am not in favor of bearding people in their homes, but since the left has decided recently that this is completely appropriate and fair, then it's time to start fighting that fire with fire. I'm sure this protest was far less threatening in tone than some that have happened.

Doesn't having a right to do something mean that you are entitled?

Buzzwords...

If you are unable to discern what I mean that's your own problem.

It shouldn't be difficult.

I know what you mean but it is illogical.

If they had the right they were entitled. I'm sure expressing disgust of people excising their rights isn't what you thought you were saying but that is actually what your words mean.

Rights are self evident and can only be infringed upon, not created out of thin air. An example of this would be slavery... the 13th amendment didn't "bestow rights upon black Americans" as the media and schools generally teach, it removed unlawful infringements against their rights which always existed. Entitlements, however, are purely constructs of mankind and politicians... Rights are in place in a party of a single person on a deserted island, entitlements cannot be considered such because they involve taking money, property, or freedoms from others to distribute to the entitled.

Semantics?

The posts didn't say "Entitlements" so your, whatever that post is, doesn't apply.

No, not actually better. Since when are people excising their rights considered to be acting spoiled?

I wonder how she managed to afford a $4.3million mansion.

And did I hear them say that she doesn't even live in the 43rd that she supposedly represents?

Did I say that expressing their rights meant they were spoiled? Did you miss the part where I said they were well within their rights to walk out? Just as I am well within my right to have an OPINION of it? You only see black and white and always seem to miss the underlying issues and you never seem to be able to read between the lines.

Sorry no dice, not debating with you.

Caio.

When people criticize others for being "entitled," it goes hand in hand with the concept of entitlements.

What is there to debate? You say they have the right and it disgusts you that they exercised that right.

That is illogical.

It isn't because I see things black or white. You are the one passing judgment. I don't see a problem with those graduates walking out and I don't see a problem with others being pissed but someone saying they acknowledge their right and still feel pissed is suffering from some cognitive dissonance.

No it doesn't. It is just a buzzword used to replace spoiled, at least most of the time I have seen it used.
