I think you need some sleepytime tea or something. You need to calm down. That whole post is just bait and vitriol.

You seriously lack self-awareness. All you ever post is "bait" and "vitriol".

I'm serious. All the time. Everything is serious business, not "bait and vitriol", as that is for children and the unserious.

Seriously.

You caught him in the fact that a lot of right wingers DID advocate obamas death. To Gani being confronted with the fact that the average conservative thinks black people are subhuman is an unforgivable sin since it rumbles his worldview and forces him to actually think (this is the guy who ignores that the southern strategy was admitted to by the rnc chairman, that the term cultural marxism originates in an anti semitic conspiracy theory and who ignores that given the same opportunity a lot of christians in america would GLEEFULLY stone gays to death in the street and bring back the old testament yet acts like a few idiot muslims have any chance of introducing widespread sharia and taking over the US; he's also stupid enough to think al franken won by a rigged election when an investigation determined he won fair and square. He lives in an echo chamber and reacts violently to dissent.)


Edit: Didn't need the last bit. Gani's still an idiot though

The "right wingers" never pulled this shit with Obama. Yet, the left is totally willing to bask in the want to assassinate a sitting President. So much for the left being the "classy" ones, eh?


What about the Julius Caesar play in 2012 at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis?

Well I, for one, am glad to hear the United States mocks all its politicians with the same set of rules.

That said, if people could keep their image dumps for the Bolvar's shitposting thread, and/or stop being asshats, that'd be for the best.

Not mathematically but in general racists tend to be more conservative. The southern democrats were more conservative than northern democrats for instance. That's not to say liberal racists don't exist but in general racists tend to be more conservative than liberal. It's an ugly thing to admit but it's true. Gani lashed out when confronted with the fact that those lynching images were held at mainstream conservative rallies.

I also meant it when I said a lot of christians would CHEERFULLY be stoning gays to death in the street if they could (and unlike Muslim funds THEY have a chance of getting their agenda passed). People like John Hagee, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum seem VERY keen on bringing back the old testament, and at least 57% of all republican voters are not opposed to a theocracy. Hell American Evangelicals helped create the current laws in uganda that allow the death penalty for homosexuality.

THAT Is why people are more willing to go after christians. There's an atrocious double standard where Christian fundies are portrayed as harmless when given the power they would gleefully make America a theocracy. In fact, given that they actually have the ability to carry out their agenda (as opposed to a few isolated muslims who are generally dismissed as losers in their own community) Christian fundamentalists are FAR more dangerous.

It's also why "regressive leftist" is a snarl world. It's basically used by people who want to act like christianity is a shining beacon of light and that muslims are a monolith who must become "house muslims" in order to fit in.

^ Since you're saying things like "not mathematically" and "a lot of" (instead of "most" or "virtually all"), you've demonstrated that I was incorrect when I asserted you weren't using hyperbole.

So, fair enough.

So apparently Bill 89 was passed in the Ontario legislature.
Reading up on what people were saying I wasn't sure if the panic was proper or not.

You have some arguing that since now the bill (which it is a long bill) has provisions saying that they will take into consideration certain elements it goes too far.

Quote:
Subject to subsection 94 (7) and sections 110 and 111 (custody during adjournment, interim and extended society care), the parent of a child in care retains any right that the parent may have,

(a) to direct the child’s or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity;
The "creed, community identity and cultural identity." is new. Previous elements of the law allowed it to be in line with the family's religious views.

Some people fear that if their child is say of a particular religious persuasion or not and they were to send them to a Catholic school or something to that effect that this would be illegal.

The other element would be the expansion of the "Best Interests of the Child" notion.

Quote:
The matters to be considered in determining the best interests of a child are changed. The child’s views and wishes, given due weight in accordance with the child’s age and maturity, unless they cannot be ascertained, and in the case of a First Nations, Inuk or Métis child, the importance of preserving the child’s cultural identity and connection to community must be taken into consideration.
In addition, any other circumstances that are considered relevant, including a list of 11 circumstances similar to those listed in the current Act, are to be considered. Differences include: the current Act includes the child’s cultural background in this list while the new Act includes the child’s cultural and linguistic heritage; the current Act includes the religious faith in which the child is being raised while the new Act includes the child’s race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
So people are worried that they removed the raising up in a religious upbringing part and focused more on the childs wishes. If a boy wishes to be a girl and the parent disagrees people are worried they'll be taken away.

On the otherhand we've had Youth reform advocates arguing that the bill has too much loose wording. That it doesn't go far enough and doesn't have any teeth.

I feel like politics is more divisive than sex is. Someone hating feminism doesn't mean they are going to hate me. It is just what people of a specific political persuasion do. A person that takes politics really seriously is more likely to mistreat me or treat me unfairly than someone doing so because I am a woman.

I don't deny sexism exists. Both positive and negative. The vitriolic surrounding politics is really insane in the US though. Racism and sexism should have never been conflated with this because it means people think you can't be sexist if you vote Democrat and a word that means something very specific became a more generic negative insult.

Neo-Nazis/Skinheads? I dunno if it would be awkward, considering how militant they are.

Well, maybe more like confusing, rather than awkward.

Eh, just calling the other side jewefied(is that a word?) would work just fine imo. Historical relevance and shit.

Nah, they just ask (((((who)))) might be motivating them to act in such a way.

In other news, the right-wing response to Wolfenstein 2 has been fun to watch in a disgusting sort of way.

It's almost like you can point out as many screaming lunatics on the Right as you can on the Left. Almost like pointing out screaming lunatics is a pointlessly polarizing thing to do.
