So you refuse to acknowledge what we all know? Tell me, why all lives matter is bad to say? Or it’s ok to be white?

ASSUMPTION

If you disagree with this Annee you are just being old and grumpy


The “absolute” of the Xtrozero

No — I am not required to accept your thinking.

Perspective is everything (varied observations and comparison). Not tunnel vision.

What's that have to do with acknowledging that all lives matter?

Most of us won't use the phrase BLM because it's an organization that supports our political enemy and is infested by maggot marxist zealots

We don't disagree with the sentiment. We just oppose the marxists totally and completely on all issues in every way

Don't play coy with me...lol "don't accept my thinking" geez

So they just randomly painted them where they are? lol ya right...

Click on any YouTube and see who the focus of these murals are against...

Why are people painting over them, most are actually Black, is it because they think Black lives don't matter, or are they doing it because of how BLM is being used as a mural.

Why are cities now removing them...

I get it, it doesn't fit your narrative...

I'm Irish and German/Jew so oppression is a scar deep in both cultures...

So lets come forward to 2020 where is the oppression? Unless you were alive before the 60s you basically have never seen it.

I’m half southern Irish — half Palatine German (Maryland 1700s).

I’m 75.

My mother was a polio victim in ‘51 — 30+ years before the disability act. Pretty much treated the same as gays. Pretty sad people have to be forced to treat a disabled person equally.

You’re not going to bait me.

Click on any YouTube. Seriously???? As if, like the internet, I can’t find something to promote my point of view.

Art murals have to be approved by the city before installing. Intent can be temporary or permanent.

Again — I don’t need to accept your narrative.

You present a viewpoint as “absolutes”. It isn’t. It’s just your viewpoint.

How is MAGA 2020 a counter to Black Lives Matter?

They don’t really relate. Unless MAGA 2020 stands for white supremacy.



Uh-oh, are you suggesting BLM stands for black supremacy?

This country hated Polio victims so strongly, they... errr, well, they elected one to the office of President of the United States for 3 consecutive terms.
www.fdrlibrary.org...
We discriminatory American bastards, we!

Come to think of it, did not we just have a black man elected to the office twice and now: alleged racism aplenty? Holy crap, we must honor these victims by sending them to the highest office we have prior to victimizing them! That's diabolically brilliant of us!!!

It's literally the only way for you to suggest that "white supremacy" is the related counter to BLM. Otherwise, it's right up there with saying that the death penalty is a related counter to jay walking.

Just because facts matter...
www.wbur.org...

But historian James Tobin says, despite misimpressions to the contrary, Americans of Roosevelt's day were well-aware of his disability. In fact, Tobin says, Roosevelt's struggle to overcome his affliction was an important part of the personal narrative that fueled his political career.

Tobin tells Fresh Air's Dave Davies, "[Roosevelt] only discovered who he really was through the ordeal of polio. ... It gave him a kind of confidence in his own strength that perhaps no one can have until you're tested."

Roosevelt contracted polio at the age of 39, and Tobin's new book explores his battle with the illness and the ways it molded his character and influenced his rise in the Democratic Party. Tobin has written previous books about the Wright brothers and war correspondent Ernie Pyle. His new book is The Man He Became: How FDR Defied Polio to Win the Presidency.

SNIP

When I've talked to people in the past ... I've always asked them, "Did you know about FDR's condition?" And they've always said yes. What they say is, "We realize later that he was more disabled than we knew, but we certainly knew he was disabled, we knew that he couldn't walk." I think that this misimpression comes from a couple of things:


Any other misimpressions tainting your world view and positions, or is this an outlier?

What is your personal experience with polio in the 30+ years prior to the Disability Act?

I was 5 when my mother had polio. So, I personally experienced the prejudice against the disabled for many years.

That FDR had polio — means what exactly? You’re just blowing smoke.
