Social Darwinism , Survival of the Fittest . Political Correctness Ignores that Reality , but it is the Driving Force behind All Life on Earth .

Sure. Let's go back to segregating black people, blasting the N word anywhere and everywhere, beating gays, and burning witches.


The left are the ones currently seeking resegregation and simmering in a group think mob mentality.
They went so far left they are right. They are like the Christian Right of the 80's. Hysterics. Bonkers.
They are

So we're just posh animals?

Me thinks that Stephen Hawking was a benefit to human endeavour, he wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes in the wild once he began losing the function of his body.

Martin Luther King fought valiantly for a noble cause, he was once considered a second rate human being.

Jesus preached human decency ...

We have not lived in a world where we kill our weak family members off, unless you count the men of the Steppes or Spartan culture. In fact most humans throughout nearly all civilisations of the past would venerate their loved ones and insist that they lived a life that was as decent as can be provided. Especially if they were different.

We're all equal. We're all human.

"Not allowed" was a poor choice of words. Won't get traction or mention on the MSM would be a more accurate description. I am also talking about the ideologies spread through the University system which is increasingly affecting the attitudes of millenials. Trends are by nature generalities and exceptions can be found to anything.

You make many assertions about me not caring about how other's rights were trampled. I could argue both sides of any issue but it has always been my preference to take the cause of the underdog. That's why I protested the KKK years ago as well fundamentalist religion. At one Klan rally I was the only protester and I was grateful for the police being there.

I wrote editorials in the 80's and 90's about how drug and sentencing laws were racist in nature and would target Black people disproportionately leading to incarceration, single parent households, poverty and government dependency. I wrote about how the Religious Right was intolerant of gays & atheists as well as being racist since the Moral Majority never once protested against White supremacist groups like the klan.

Times have changed and the pendulum has swung too far the other direction. This is all I try point out. Feel free to disagree but you don't know my heart nor I yours. I despise arguing but even more I don't feel I can ignore reality or just be silent when things are wrong. I am on the side of people. Perhaps it's just a matter of how best to serve the interests of those people that you and I differ. Dredging up the wrongs of history will only hopelessly further divide us all when the real enemies of humanity are not in the past but very much in the present running the government, banks and corporations.

Perhaps you and I will continue to disagree or just maybe find some common ground. That's why I came to ATS and stayed because it encourages us all to be frank and fully develop our conversations. For now we might agree to disagree but through dialogue we may get there together one of these days.

Cheers,
ATA

You're grouping opinions then playing the victim card.

The US still has over 300 practiced religions. It's for the individual to find a spiritual path to the source of their faith. I'll be honest though, I've ripped the piss out of Christians at times, Muslims too. A Mexican/American I have a lot of respect for has been on the receiving end of some rude jokes about his grand ability to work. I'll happily take the piss out of myself too.

Sometimes one can jest without being an utter tosspot.

All groups get unnecessary attention, and the line shall be drawn where opinion turns into verbal assault led by hatred. It's the same for all groups and if you personally feel that a group that you belong to is being treated unlawfully then I implore you to do something about it in a legal and decent fashion.

Because such b.s. isn't acceptable, it really isn't. And crying that "political correctness has gone mad" will do nothing to solve it. Neither does getting bitter or angry either.

To add:
After reading your last post I clearly made some judgement errors, you have done decent things about injustice. If kids are being indoctrinated to be utter idiots then we all need to be the change we wish to see. It's a travesty to see society regress in terms of progress.

Young malleable minds seldom ever get it right first time round, I was a grade A idiot 10 years ago, I still am but I keep trying to better who I am. Most people change for the better... Others grow bitter and influence the youth in very negative ways.

Hey, didn't you see the morons in the disgusting pink hats? Very, very nasty women wearing genital hats.

Time to drive the final righteous stake through PC culture's hollow/empty/shell/husk of a heart.

No thanks. It is my/your/their right to engage in "hateful" verbal assault. It is my Constitutional right (as it is ATA's). I hate plenty of things/people, and I see no reason to pretend otherwise. Unlike socialist X-holes (like the UK, for instance), speech that offends some snowflake's "delicate sensibilities" (snicker) is not and will not be a crime here in the single greatest country on Earth: the USA.

Anyone who has a problem with our Constitution/Bill of Rights needs to find another country: they don't belong in America. This is the land of the free/home of the brave, and there is nothing brave about running from speech. Nor is there anything free about censoring my speech so some whiney little beta doesn't have to get their fweeelings hurt.

Give me a break.

The problem is that we went from being moral to moralizing.

Being moral is acting correctly because we know it's the right thing to do. It's being polite and holding the door for others who are coming or going and might need some help, etc. It's doing things you see that need doing, but not nothing more than that.

Moralizing is when you *know* what the right thing is and you take it upon yourself to impose that correctness upon everyone else around you whether you it's actually right or not and whether you use fair means or foul to impose it.

Agreed - I don't do political correctness, its for pussies who would rather adopt a stance of appeasement than conviction.

OP you do know the DNC sued Nixon and his re-election campaign and got a settlement right? They sued when the GOP was using voter caging to remove people from rolls in the 1980s and won. This isnt some last ditch effort of some failing ideology or some crazy vestige of PC culture. It is a normal process that has happened before and will happen again in the future.

'Politically correct' is like saying something is 'politically true', or 'politically factual', or 'politically real'.

They are all oxymorons. Based on morons.

LMAO.

Nobody is running from speech you gun-toting American, it's laws to keep the peace and quite frankly I find it absolutely hilarious when Americans make that piss-poor distinction.

The nation where the bullied work themselves into little tantrums and go on a f###ing killing spree.

Out of all the verbal conflicts I've seen nobody has ever went running to mummy because they got called bad names, nah they just talk crap or duke it out right there. It's usually the mouthpiece hitting the floor first.

Personally I respect it when people have the balls to say sht to your face, but keep deluding yourself to the realities of this socialist crap hole, if you ever happen to visit stay in the affluent neighbourhoods, preferably in the separatist state of London.

Police response times can be murder sometimes, you're a genuinely funny guy.

I say let the masses sort their beef out amongst themselves.

When someone takes the piss out of you to your face what do you do?

Morality does have a lot to do with it, I've happened to meet a few scumbags in my life that'll happily take a punch just to land someone in jail, I imagine a similar stuff happens in the US.

The problem is, like most nations. Well established laws exist around conflict.

Too many people equate equality with oppression when they suddenly see others as well off as they are.

You know, like how you guys whine and moan if we don't say "radical Islamic terrorism", don't stand for the anthem, reject the confederate flag and confederate statues?

You reject my history, you reject me. That's why. How would you feel if we started burning all the Qurans and belittling anyone who has one?

Incidentally, I made my final decision who I vote for for Governor of Alabama this past week. I learned Kay Ivey signed a state law protecting all historic statues. She will receive my vote. So don't be coming down here if you feel like tearing statues down and rewriting history.

You are a good debater and a very intelligent man... I simply wish your hatred wasn't so feverish toward those not like you.

The whole idea of being 'moral' is exactly as you say... based in how one acts. A moral person is one who will act the same way regardless of whether or not anyone is watching. Words have nothing to do with it.

Words only matter when the goal is to control others... then one can outlaw certain words and use those laws to suppress certain thoughts. Once thoughts are suppressed, individuality follows. With individuality suppressed, masses can be easily controlled. Without individuality suppressed, populations become sovereign and uncontrollable.

And of course, the definitions must be as politically correct as the words themselves. "Hate speech" is a good example. No one here can identify "hate speech" with certainty, because no one here can read the minds of others. Without reading those minds, how can one ascertain whether or not the words uttered indicate hate? What makes one violent crime a "hate crime" and another not? Does not violence naturally stem from hate? Is not all violent crime a "hate crime"? Are there actually criminals who will murder strangers because they love them?

The whole concept of "hate speech" is in itself "hate speech" because as we have seen, it targets one group over another for nothing more than the color of their skin. I have never owned a slave; my parents never owned any slaves; my grandparents never owned any slaves (in one sense my maternal grandparents were somewhat slaves themselves; they were sharecroppers which was the closest one could get to actual slavery at the time). I have researched my family tree back to the Indian tribes, to the crossing from England before this was a country on one side, and back to where the line disintegrates into a mish-mash of Black Dutch and Indians on another. There were no slave owners. Yet, because of the color of my skin, I am lumped into the same group who did own slaves.

The slavery complaint enlightenedservant makes falls on deaf ears with me. I am more than a white man... I am me, TheRedneck of ATS, an individual, and I will not stand by while powers try to do to me what others did to their ancestors generations ago because of the color of my skin. And that is exactly what PC tries to do. No justice... only blind vengeance to control.

Yet you support memorials glorifying slavery.
