    Yes. This is a subset of what I said.

    I think you have invented a caste system to justify your average life.

    Do you believe our society does not have elites? Look bro the Marxist revolution hasn't happened yet, that's why we gotta defund police and burn cities down.

    What are you talking about? Should I cease treating you as a serious poster capable of intellectual thought? If you're not interested in talking about politics, which necessarily assumes the existence of a political elite, then why are you here?

    You're starting to sound like a 4 year old where you just call people names over and over when they upset the applecart inside your head. I saw to my dismay in another thread where you just kept calling another user who has been here a long time (like most of us) a racist over and over. When did you turn into valade?

    Getting old entails turning into a weird SJW who wastes his time calling people thought criminals on the internet?

    He holds certain negative stereotypes against blacks (as we all do to some degree) and constantly justifies holding those negative stereotypes, and defending anyone who holds (and acts upon) those stereotypes.

    I think his mentality is exactly what people are marching against.

    Hes not outright racist but his mentality definitely has threads of racism in it, intentional or not..

    I don't care to litigate anyone's 'racism,' which is a fictional concept (standing in for 'original sin' in Christian doctrine) that I simply do not believe in. As an atheist to the religion of SJWism I have nothing to contribute beyond heaping scorn on its followers because they inconvenience me.

    What you described sounds like prejudice however.

    FNK, you ignored my last post.

    Care to just: "yeah, I was wrong"? It's not hard! We've all done it here!

    I don't support Trump on everything. I have even called him stupid multiple times.

He isn't gonna see these posts my man. It just looks bad.

    It's honestly nothing short of depressing that this has to be debated.



    Red: the street
    Blue: the symbol

    Comprende?

    Not to mention that your brains have all been so thoroughly turned to mush by all the news you consume that you actually think Bill De Blasio has actually been anti-police

    I say it all the time. Why do so many on the right do this song and dance all the time instead of just admitting the truth behind it. In a week he'll just bluntly be saying "Black Lives Matter is a hate symbol" and you'll then choose to defend it. That's how this always works. Twist yourself in a pretzel and then when you can't anymore, you just cut to the chase.

    Have some faith in your beliefs. Be proud of what you believe in man! I knew we all grew up following sports here, and for many it's instinctual to just pick a side/team/politician and cheer them on like a team. But this **** ain't sports. Have some actual consistent and core beliefs that you don't have to hide from.

    the word black lives matter and the millions of people that support that are not the symbol of hate, but there are people with the organization that are a symbol of hate. some make idiotic demands like abolishing police.

    a leader from BLM literally said "if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system"

    I've never said all media is equally bias, of course some are worse. from what I have seen and shown here some includes CNN.

    I've also said despite CNN's clear bias, that any news should be judged based on the context/content, and not where it's from. CNN despite being bias can still have stories that are correct, justified, and that could even include opinion pieces. the same thing could be said about any media from the right that I bet you have no interest in agreeing.


    reminder than this is the network/media that had to settle a lawsuit with a child because he was a MAGA hat wearing Trump supporter.

    some media have shown to be an enemy of anyone that supports Trump.

    a lot of people trust "media" the way they always have going back decades when it was just newspapers.

    "media" has evolved/transitioned into something else, but people still trust them to provide accurate news and that is not happening.
