IDs are racist except when they’re for buying a gun, flying, driving, adopting a pet…

You're a conservative atheist. They do exist.

True, and I have one friend who is not religious but more conservative than i am.


It's a mistake to think that conservative and Christian are synonymous. Faith is outside of politics or should be. It's only recent years/decades with the rise of the idea that certain things are only objected because of Christianity that they two ideas became linked. It gives the opponent an easy way to argue against with the idea of separation of powers and lets them delegitimize arguments and dismiss an opponent out of hand.

Truth.

Anything to make the voting lines move faster gets my full support. I can't handle having to wait in line with all of those dead minorities

Racism and race are and will always be a political tool wielded by the powerful against the people.

These depraved individuals will literally use any side of any issue to maintain their control over public opinion. When a stance becomes unpopular, they switch and blame the rabble who went along with it to form a new persecuted class. The anointed must always have a benighted.

Academics and PR specialists have been doing this in full view of the public for over a century but the wall of propaganda is destroying any constructive discussion we could have on a large scale.

I think we need to find better ways for discourse that eliminates political power games. Trust is low. We need to restore the benefit of the doubt.

And the gold medal for Mental Gymnastics today is this one.


NO you don't get to ignore the Democrats being racist to say look at Nixon...... Crazy as it seemed at the time, Nixon was framed by Daddy Bush we know now. The KKK is still Democrats.

You think that gun laws are devoid of racist intentions?

I am familiar with your link, but thanks for posting it. Interesting that it was democrats behind most of the racist gun control in this country, isn't it?


Interesting you point the finger at Dems. I am not convinced it was mostly Dems, throughout our history. It's not like anyone in the Klan has been a Dem for a couple generations at least. Nixon wasn't exactly Lincoln. There's a lot of racist history in this nation. The NRA supported an open-carry ban after the Black Panthers started carrying guns.

You need to learn how to comprehend what you read. I said I wasn't convinced it "just Dems" who are racist. You also do not get to tell me what I do or do not get to do. Especially, here on ATS Mental gymnastics? That's a compliment coming from someone who is too mentally atrophied to even do a mental push-up. The KKK endorsed Trump, but to hear you talk they all voted for Obama. Keep telling yourself, everyone but your heroes are racist. Ignore and deny everything that goes against your own. Thanks for the laughs. I didn't say hey look at Nixon. I said Look at Reagan's conversation with Nixon. Is it your position that calling African UN delegates, monkeys isn't racist, when former Dem Reagan said it. When I clearly stated Reagan was a Dem until he was 50, do you think that he wasn't racist as a Dem (because all Dems are, right?) - and somehow shed his racism to join the GOP? You're so fixated on on partisan rhetoric, that you actually believe there is no such thing a racist Republican. Anyway, thanks for the laughs.
