That's exceptionally insightful of you.
However, I've been bullied online -- including here -- and direct name-calling and personal insults were sometimes part of it. Trump-haters and Trump-lovers both do it.
I wasn't intended as an insult. I am pretty much ambivalent about the subject as far as you are concerned. No more or less so than if you were a Communist or Baathist. It just a term that to me describes your political position and beliefs. As far as you are concerned and you have the right to hold them. I may disagree with it in regards to the issues surrounding it. But as long as the beliefs aren't aimed at harming others it's just a term.
I mean you don't want to see people thrown in ovens or concentration camps, right ? And if not then it just something to be debated on its merits like everything else here. My problem with racist isn't their racism per say, it their bad intentions for others that set it apart from just being some other belief.
How does a ban change what the person is?
No, I don't.
Thank you. It's too bad not everyone shares that attitude.
So how are you defining "racism?" To my knowledge, no one here has ever seriously advocated doing physical or material harm to anyone based solely on race.
It doesn't. It's just about keeping the tone of the conversation civil. "What you posted is racist" doesn't violate the rule. "You're a racist" does. Like if I said to my husband "I hate that you did that" is different than if I said "I hate you." That would make for two very different conversations.
Look left and right before you look ahead:
Talk about retarded.....................................................................
Some people can't be expected to figure that out. Thanks for making it simple, @Emily, though I doubt you came down as far as you needed to go with the simplicity.
When the revolution comes and they join together in a Soviet Union of North America ...
No reason for ignominy other than being the most harmful government in history, you mean.
This is what the Left wants. I hope it never happens.
Tierra del Fuego
Most of all, they've wrecked Mexico. Like arsonists after setting a fire, they have to run away from it. The Spanish word for "fire" (fuego) and the Latin word for "I make run away" (fugo) are ironically similar.
