Frankly, you sound like you're troubled with self-doubts and you want to blame it on "SJWs."
When your argument is so weak you have to resort to high school nonsense like this, just don't post. Thanks.
LOL. Your posts are hardly the standard for great arguments. Further, why do you think anyone cares about your assessments? If you don't want to read my post, skip over it. Thanks.
The ones claiming that ARE the sheep and MSM.
It is YOU who constantly fail to see irony.
The left is BY FAR the easiest group to lie to..to lead around by the nose...to delude on levels they will never be able to see.
They live in emotions, which they have been told is a good thing...a GUT REACTION. They are unable to see from a birds eye view and THAT IS A FACT.
It is real sad, i see their souls wanting good for all, they just do not realize what good is actually around them.
Ignorance can no longer be used as an excuse inside the soul, no matter how you leftists frame it.
Looks like "Hollywood" has gone all out to compare Trump to some current political issues as racists and un-PC.
Study: Trump fans are much angrier about housing assistance when they see an image of a black man In contrast, Clinton supporters seemed relatively unmoved by racial cues.
All it takes to reduce support for housing assistance among Donald Trump supporters is exposure to an image of a black man. That’s the takeaway from a new study by researchers Matthew Luttig, Christopher Federico, and Howard Lavine, set to be published in Research & Politics.
In a randomized survey experiment, the trio of researchers exposed respondents to images of either a white or black man. They found that when exposed to the image of a black man, white Trump supporters were less likely to back a federal mortgage aid program. Favorability toward Trump was a key measure for how strong this effect was.
Making # up. Key tactic of yours. I'll thank you to simply read my post, not inject your own thoughts into them. But I can't force you to be reasonable if you decide not to be.
The two fight over an axe when Yang warriors arrive and take everyone back to their village. Their leader, Cloud William, turns out to be the prisoner from earlier. Cloud produces a very old American Flag and ancient manuscripts from which he poorly recites the Pledge of Allegiance. When Kirk completes the Pledge of Allegiance, the Yangs are shocked. Spock surmises that the cultures may have developed along very similar lines to Earth. Kirk speculates that the Kohms were "Communists" and Yangs were "Yankees." Apparently, the Omegans had a war, similar to the Cold War between the Soviet Union and the United States. The conflict resulted in a war that destroyed both cultures many centuries earlier. Even Spock found the parallel between the two worlds to be "almost too close".

I always thought the Federation was the U.S.A.
Klingons were Soviets
Romulans were Red Chinese
Volcans = what used to be considered good China aka Taiwan.
Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry stressed the virtues of tolerance and cooperation across racial, ethnic, and national lines….
But at least from a libertarian perspective, the otherwise appealing ideological vision of Star Trek is compromised by its commitment to socialism.
The Federation isn’t just socialist in the hyperbolic sense in which some conservatives like to denounce anyone to the left of them as socialist. It’s socialist in the literal sense that the government has near-total control over the economy and the means of production….
