So simple.

A feels slighted by B, so A complains. After many years of skirmishes between A and B, A prevails. But A wants more, and begins to openly slight B. B feels slighted by A, so B complains.

One step at a time. One foot in front of the other. Happily marching to war like the lemmings march behind the leader.

I'm watching it now. 6000 people. On a Saturday, when no one is at work. With weapons. Just as I have been warning about... and it won't be the last time, nor will it be the worst time. The worst time will be the next time.

I got popcorn.

I don't feel I have been corrected one bit other than
The Mexican war slip.

Lol yur really angry now huh.

Did you know they erected some of these statues and started flying the flag after Jim crow laws were coming down.

So you tell me who changed the meaning.


Really angry?

No, bemused at best.

Nothing to say of the context when they were put up?

Hmmm..
Do you think they were flying the Confederate flags after the civil rights legislation passed to honor their ancestors or protest of ending segregation?

Let's see if you can answer this honestly or will continue to deflect.

If this was really about the statue, and history, and not the racial implications, they would label their actions as protecting American heritage instead of labeling it "white heritage".

Racists make themselves pretty obvious if you take the time to listen.



Racism is about discriminating against other races, not about celebrating your own race. If that were the case, then all the Mexican Americans waiving the Mexican flag and celebrating their Mexican heritage are racists.

But aren't the statues part of all our history? That's what people keep saying in defense of things like this.

So why label it as "white heritage" when it's all our heritage? Unless they are intentionally adding a racial aspect for their own reasons..

And Mexican isn't a race.


Aren't African-American's contributions part of all of our history? Yet we have Black History Month. Why label it Black History Month, if it is all of our history?

It's disingenuous to try and compare Black History month to a racist rally where people are screaming racial epithets. Come on now.

One is a month set aside to celebrate contributions by the black community, and one is a rally set on warping history in the hopes of validating current identity politics.

You're talking about apples and bowling balls.

They're obviously just waving hello to their counter protests, it's an entirely friendly gesture; how dare you defame these upstanding gentlemen.

Talked to my family. Everyone is upset because these people were bused in. They are not from the area at all.

They like you want these people to get back on their buses and go back to wherever they came from.

Yep...

The only issue is it seems the narrative is like gospel to the far right and left and most of us see them as rediculous. White racist, leads to black racist, to white racist, to black etc..

It's great.

This isn't political, and what I have been trying to tell everyone, this is not a Trump Rally, all these groups

Known Groups There: National Socialist Party, Vanguard America, Traditional Workers Party, Identity Evropa, Rise Above Movement, Some Proud Boys, 'Alt-Right' faces, League Of The South, Rebel Brigade of Knights

Are National Socialist or Neo-Fascist, many have denounced Trump for being a Neocon

You are just using your bias and prejudice to make the distinction between the two. Celebrating Black history, celebrating White history, neither are racist. There are black and white racists though.

So what displaying the Daesh flag is also not forbidden and people use the Daesh finger gesture all the time as well. I call that faux outrage and nothing more. It's called free speech even if you don't like it.

it's my impression that it's pretty much a liberal college town..
so much for the conservative idea that the local community should be allowed more freedom when it comes to what goes one in their community...

it would, that "this is our town" but would have irked me really bad...
I'd probably have everyone I could get busy all night hanging up "THIS IS OUR TOWN, WE LIVE HERE NOT YOU!!" banners all over town!

If part of celebrating either history is supremacy than yes it's racist. If part of celebrating black history month is black superiority over whites then it's racist. If your proud your ancestors owned slaves and treated them like livestock it's also probably racist.

So I prove its a Nazi rally. And your retort is something about ISIS? Well at least its obvious who and what some of you are.


Ugh one of those moments where its time to rethink ATS membership
