lmao, so do everyone, right?
True, true... but I usually try to read the threads before posting in them. Keeps me from looking quite so stoopid sometimes.
I find this a bit offensive, if you read back what he said, was it for Europe or for America?
If one looks back at history, it was the US who turned the tide of battle. That does not minimize Europe's contribution, but the sad fact is that they
This speech is by a United States of America
President to the United States of America
Congress concerning the state of the United
States of America
. It was not given by a French President, a Spanish President, a Greek President, a Polish President, a UK President, or a German
President. The United States of America is one nation on the globe, and we have been pretty successful. We are one of the most powerful nations on
earth, but that does not mean we hold some obligation to include every other nation in our ceremonies. If that offends you, too bad. I don't get upset
when people celebrate Cinco de Mayo and don't include the US... it's not a US holiday! I'd love to see Oktoberfest sometime, but I wouldn't expect the
Germans to praise the US in the middle of it.
Yes, the Americans fought for the United States. They only fought for France because France was an ally. No one is going to willingly go to war for
another nation unless there is a benefit to their nation. That's just how it is. I feel that if other nations realized this, maybe they would be more
willing to fix their problems instead of expecting someone else to come help fix them. We fixed our own problems. We threw King James and his
red-coated sissies outta here and we didn't wait for someone else to come to our aid to start it. Even France, our largest ally at the time, stayed
out of it until they realized we were winning.
America is for Americans. France is for the French. Spain is for the Spanish. Germany is for the Germans. China is for the Chinese.
That word just means not liking how Israel does things.
That word means open and hostile discrimination against the Jewish people. This has nothing to do with Israel. Israel did not even exist at the time
of the Holocaust.
There is a difference between the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. I don't agree with everything Israel does. But I will not become hostile to
the Jews over what a nation does, just as I would consider it a breach of reality for someone to claim that I was personally responsible for the mess
I have been called anti semitist for bringing this up
Well, now you know how I feel. There is a certain word that shall remain unspoken here which meant, in my culture, "black person." Its meaning was
somehow changed to a derogatory slur, and suddenly everyone who used it to mean "black person" was deemed evil and despicable, unworthy of even their
income and/or possessions, instead worthy of public scorn, even if it was used before the change in definition.
Well... maybe you know a little. I think you are actually confusing the word "antisemitism" with the concept of "zionist." I'll admit I am not very
sure what "zionist" really includes, but I know it has something to do with Israel, and it is not a good thing to call people. Some of them get very
