It's the connection of extremism with ALL Muslims that attract the ire of those who see through the racism.


That is what I find confusing since Muslims are not a race, but a religion. It is made up of many races.




Do you like your free police force, military, and infrastructure? You socialist, you.


Actually yes. I do like that. It actually provides a service to this nation. False Equivalence.





Yes, Muslims are made of several races. But when was the last time you saw a white guy do something bad and have conservatives bark "goddamn Muslims!"


And no, those things I mentioned earlier are not "false equivalences". Do you not think healthcare and feeding people provide a service to our nation?

I am confused by everyone's "beliefs".

What in the hell happened to this country?

What in the hell is wrong with people?

This whole way of thinking on both/all sides along with all of the labeling is just plain absurd and rediculous.

Ignorance is leading the way, whether it is left, right, straight, or any other type of label.

So please tell me, what does this make me?

Which side of the broken a$$ fence do I reside on because to be quite frank, it is all absolutely friggin silly.

Everyone is so worried that they will be left out and that their opinion will not be heard that ignorance is gathering in droves and the ignorance is not leaving any room for compromise.



Agreed Sir but even having a Broken Fence is Racist. According to the Left.

That's was just a bunch of assertions of fact made about so many people that logically the accuracy of such statements simply aren't going to correct.

The statements are too specific and the group is too large to be accurate.

But then again, I don't know who "The Left" is supposed to actually be. The label is used so often and in so many different ways that the OP might only be talking about a group of 10 people for all I know. But I doubt it. It's also used to roughly represent almost half the world population by some people too. So it's hard to know what the OP is talking about.

Who qualifies as "The Left" exactly?? It's the most non accurate, non specific, blanket term that is used incorrectly and abundantly by so many different people in so many ways that it's impossible to know in what way it's being used and who it's supposed to actually represent.

The larger that group of people within "The Left" is assumed to be, the more incorrect each of those statements become. Because the more people included the more various beliefs and opinions that group will also have over all. It just becomes a very bigoted stereotype of people in general but rooted in a political bias rather than race or sex or whatever.

Does that make sense??

Well I just made a post explaining my line of thought in what I meant in that first post in more detail.

Give it a read and maybe that will help.

But honestly, based off your OP I don't really know if it will make any difference to you or not or if you'll even understand it. I also don't really care one way or the other if you do.

So far I don't hold your opinion as being worth much based of what you've expressed so far. But I'm open to see if you'll change that or not to some degree.

Bowe Bergdahl comes to mind. Are you saying that the Muslims who commit these crimes are mostly non-white? Now that is a racist comment.




And no, those things I mentioned earlier are not "false equivalences". Do you not think healthcare and feeding people provide a service to our nation?


Sure it does. The amount of people taking advantage of it when they could actually get a job is also a truth about it. I have no problem with feeding people that can't work to provide for themselves. I do have a problem providing it to people who can provide for themselves, but will not because they just don't want to.

what about those that ARE WORKING, but still can't provide for their families?? there seems to be an increasing percentage of those year after year getting some type of gov't assistance.

The mud pit used to be a lot of fun but now it seems mainly populated by adolescents parroting back their altwhite parents.

Or copy pasting from the Limbaugh letter.....or that infowars pamphlet that comes out ever so often. Perhaps M. Savage publication pushing those "super beets" like there's no tomorrow. What kind of idiot would buy that $h!t.

The thing about it, is that it doesn't describe every person on the left, but every person on the left fits into at least one of those categories. So it is not an assertion as you put it. It is a fact.




But then again, I don't know who "The Left" is supposed to actually be. The label is used so often and in so many different ways that the OP might only be talking about a group of 10 people for all I know. But I doubt it. It's also used to roughly represent almost half the world population by some people too. So it's hard to know what the OP is talking about.


Just watch CNN. You will find a lot more than 10 people who fit into those categories.




Who qualifies as "The Left" exactly?? It's the most non accurate, non specific, blanket term that is used incorrectly and abundantly by so many different people in so many ways that it's impossible to know in what way it's being used and who it's supposed to actually represent.


The left is used as a term to describe the never Trump crowd. The one's that no matter what he does, it is just not good enough. The one's calling for his impeachment because they get to offended by an election.




The larger that group of people within "The Left" is assumed to be, the more incorrect each of those statements become. Because the more people included the more various beliefs and opinions that group will also have over all. It just becomes a very bigoted stereotype of people in general but rooted in a political bias rather than race or sex or whatever.


It really isn't a large group. The media just wants you to think it is. Politics doesn't care about race and sex, only some people do.




Does that make sense??


Yes. Thank you.

By all means. They should get it too. They are actually paying into it, they deserve it.

The LEFT loves Muslims but is offended by the word "God".


I'd hardly say that I speak for the entire "Left" anymore than you do the "Right" but I imagine of the two of us, I'm at least in a better position to make generalizations about what the "Left believes."

It's not about "loving Muslims" any more or less than any other religious group. Mostly it's a rejection of the demagoguery of those on the far-right who seem hellbent on a religious war and on the domestic end, a reaction to Islamaphobia, which leads to hate crime, calls for the infringement of civil liberties of an entire religious group and foments an atmosphere of fear and distrust that makes people less likely to contact authorities about members of their community and young people (particularly) more susceptible to "radicalization."

As for being offended by the word "God?" Not at all. But I think it's interesting that you have taken concern over the separation of church state as anti-Christian and then paired it with this nonsense about "loving Muslims" as though we're all forced with a choice between Christianity and Islam?

I think your projection says a lot more about you and your programming than it does about anyone on the Left or what they believe. It sure seems that you view the world as a series of false dichotomies and so you assume that everyone else must also form their opinions in much the same way.
