DISCLAIMER: Comedians use the F word quite often. If your ears can't handle it, skip this thread.


With Nationalism coming back like a bad penny, I think it's important to point out just how dangerous of an idea it is. It differs from patriotism, regardless of some dictionary quote.

Say: White Patriotism

It just doesn't sound the same. Patriotism is patriotism, it's universal. Nationalism has color, it has a creed.

Anyway, here are a couple of comedians and their view on it:


Doug Stanhope - Nationalism

George Carlin on national pride



And then after watching those two, you have to think: who promotes nationalism? Which party, which group of people? Who benefits from it more?



Compare those two. One party elected exclusively white men with one white woman, while the bottom section looks like what America really looks like, a cross-section of all ethnicities, religions and gender.

Based on what?

Personal opinion that women and ethnicities aren't as capable?

Considering your post is using comedians as evidence.... shouldn't opinions be valid?

Absolutely are. Thank you for your opinion. Now I know your opinion is that white men are more capable than women or ethnicities.

Are the people in the dem pic really representative though? there's like, six men who look waspy...There are zero blue collar worker types.


If a party insists on a certain proportion of this type and that type, where the hell are the truckers, factory workers etc?


Rich people are all the same so all this is...Is some sort of fake diversity.

This is true, not one Barista either!

I'm not a fan of electing people based on physical properties, you know the immutable characteristics we were told growing up aren't supposed to matter?

Turns out they do, and a penis will get you disqualified, unless you call it anything else or pretend it doesn't exist.

Newly elected. These are the people just elected. Republicans elected all white men and 1 white woman.

Given your example, name one nationally accepted comedian that could make jokes about black nationalism while at the same time possessing white or pinkish skin.

Guess what? They don't exist. Even saying the N word will destroy their career.

You are making a foolish example, what it seems to me is that you are perfectly happy to continue to see white men degraded and silenced so you can have some sort of "brown nationalism."

I mean there exists more black and meztizo separatist groups than white and they get ACTUAL support and cred from Socialist NGO's. You do that right? Of course you don't.

Yes, the rich are represented in that top portion with all white males.

Totally paraphrasing here... but I really liked that comment on the George Carlin clip, where he says that everyone is convinced god is on their side... but obviously someone is wasting their f#in time!

LOL... Never were wiser words spoken.

I've got lots of Democrat friends who live nearer the poverty level...many republican friends in that same boat too.

I only have one Democrat friend worth a couple of million. She's an anomaly.
