I take a break from this site and what do I see when I log on and check the politics forum? A bunch of right wingers running around unchecked and spewing their usual drivel. I see we have Wiltom still fighting the good fight, but it seems that most of the progressives and liberals on this are silent. I guess that it was inevitable. Angry white people are the loudest motherfuckers on the planet... when they get angry, the whole goddamn world must sit up and listen to their bullshit. You fucking croutons have nothing to be angry about. It's all about selfishness... you all are ANGRY as hell because you think that someone has been taking from you or is about to. Nobody has taken anything from you, white men still own this country and have the best advantages that society has to offer, you all have benefited from this. You want to take the country backwards through time. The past was pure crap... why are all of you angry white people nostalgic for the past? Is it the segregation and slavery that you miss? Are you nostalgic for the times when black folk addressed all white people as sir or ma'am? Your anger is ridiculous and has no basis in reality... you're mostly a bunch of hotheads that have never matured past age 12. You have had every advantage that this country offers and you are still pissed because you think that you got shortchanged? Go ahead and spend the rest of your life inside of your head, but you might want to take it out of your ass first. PATRIOTS?????? Give me a fucking break... you're not patriotic, but a lover of violence. Most of you are just out and out sadistic and have some SERIOUS issues when it comes to violence, gender and sexuality. Citizens with their hearts in all the wrong places... you all have the potential to be better people. When were you gonna give that a shot? Life is short, there is no time like the present to repent for your manufactured reality and subsequent mindset. Maybe many of you have experienced too much pain in your life and this "conservative" mindset is simply how you make sense of a world that has blown your mind? Many of you have had this mindset passed on from your elders... it's basically "all you know". Others have been abused and stepped on and find solace among other angry white men and their "strong" opinions. Many of you are racists... but that can be passed on from your elders too and it most often is. Rarely is someone a racist because of actual experiences that they have had, it is learned. It can be undone if you still have a beating heart.
