I can't be a real liberal because I don't understand transsexuality. Still though, I think forcing someone in a dress to go to a public men's bathroom is kinda fucked up.

You know he's Serbian, right? The former Yugoslavia used to be a thing until it fell into ethnic conflict and war. it shouldn't be surprising that outside our little bubble of Western civilization that is seen differently especially considering that said conflict happened within recent living memory.

The solution to ethnic conflict is ethnic intolerance?

I mean, I guess it's a solution, but in the past when people have tried to cleanse their lands of certain ethnicities it hasn't worked out all that well.

No?
It's more that maybe the reason some people don't want to bring in other ethnicities is because in this case,they're literally from a country that fell apart due to an ethnic civil war: AKA Former Yugoslavia. C9H20.

Maybe it would be better if they stayed separate? Can't go on about one brutalizing the other if they literally do not live around each other. The solution isn't to force it either, that would just make more of a mess.. If it was volountary that would be the ideal.

The Alliance's three rules on faction conflict:
1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.

A waste of time, a waste of emotional tension, a waste, if you fail to grasp the significance of narrative, of money.

And? I live in Vienna. As the popular saying here goes, "the Balkans begin in Vienna."

Meanwhile, it looks like the welfare queens can't get their hand-outs due to the shutdown.

Don't worry about the people that can't buy the product from those farmers, though. Someone else has that covered.

Funny how that works, isn't it?

What the hell is going on with American news lately?

This story is completely false. The kids did not seek the man out. The kids were not chanting "Build That Wall". The kids did not harass the man. The man and his group approached the kids at a bus stop and proceeded to play a drum in a kids face while another man told the kids that "You White people go back to Europe where you came from" Here is the actual video of him approaching the kids at the bus stop. https://twitter.com/mariajudy_/statu...804674048?s=19 Here is the actual video of the man beating the drum in the face of the kid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIG5ZB0fw1k

Theres like a dozen sides or povs to any story


Quote:
Amid claims online that Mr Phillips had himself participated in harassing the boys, another video shows the moment he arrived at the scene of the confrontation. The 64-year-old can be seen interposing himself between the two groups, ending a few yards away from both, before the students approach him and begin chanting.
