    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.

    The only reason I deign to sully myself by stepping down into this cesspool is to read another superb posting by JustAsking - consummate gentleman and scholar.
    His posts are required reading.

    There's a lot of truth here. People talk about change as if it's something we have the ability to turn on or turn off. Change is going to happen weather or not you want it to... the only question is what kind of change we want. Mostly when I hear people talk about change, it's not change they seem to be talking about, but change backward to some perceived good old day that only exists in their minds.

    Your obvious racism is despicable and disgusting.

    As to the rest of your post, I quit reading that worthless emotional nonsenses.

    I look forward to seeing more of your "intelligent" and "refined" opinion.

    Just FYI, the more hate you spread the more you get back; don't complain when it comes back.

    True liberal tolerance. Only accepting that which you already agree with.

    I'd have said just the opposite. As Einstein posited, with mathematical rigor; it's all relative.

    An intellectually satisfying justification of modern liberalism has yet to be made, and I'm fairly certain it won't be made here. I had my hopes up for a while, as this forum has a minimum age which should filter out the high school twerps who think history began about the time they got out of diapers. That should leave at least a few people with informed and useful opinions on the affairs of the world.

    Hah, silly me.

    I don't appreciate the racism from the OP. It's just wrong.

    The term "motherfucker" is about as a SEXIST term I have ever heard, but you would never get banned for using that putrid term. It's disgusting, and I would never use it. Shame on you! How you would feel if someone said on here "all angry black are niggers!" (the person would be banned in less than a second).

    Yeah, most of the world is Roman Catholic, what are you going to do about it? You can still be Orthodox, Protestant, Mormon, Satanist in peace in the country.

    I see very few right wing people on LPSG. That's about as funny of a statement as I have ever heard.

    I've been reading some of the posts on this forum and all I can say is that if this is a reflection of our society then we are all doomed. I have a few thoughts I'd like to share regarding the current political climate...

    1) To the conservatives on this site I'd like to ask the following...When Bill Clinton tried to implement universal healthcare where were the crowds calling him a socialist, Hitler, or threatening to overthrow the government?

    Not everyone that is protesting is a racist, but some are. They are using this situation as an excuse to freely express their hatred for someone unlike them i.e. not a white man. Ask yourselves if McCain had won and had then proposed the same change that Obama has would there be such outrage?

    2)What's with the desire to return to the "good old days"? To many on this forum the old days weren't so good. If you were a minority then you were considered less than human. If you were gay then you needed to hide. The best you could be was a white, Christian male. And before anyone starts thinking that I have a problem with white males I will state that my boyfriend is a handsome Irish gentleman.

    3) How many that are protesting healthcare reform have actually read the proposed bill? How can you be against something when you don't know what you are against? So many of the leaders of the fight against reform have a vested interest in it's defeat. They are the insurers and their lobbists. They are the pundits and talk show hosts who need something to stir up controversy in order to maintain their audiences. If McCain had won the election what would Beck, Limbaugh, Malkin, and others have to talk about? There are people who rely on the public remaining uninformed about the world around them. Knowledge is power and unfortunately most Americans don't have what it takes to power a flashlight.

    4) Lastly, I take it as a personal offense when someone who hasn't had to experience racism belittles what it feels like. I grew up being the only black kid in honors classes. Most of my closest friends were white. I was raised to not think about race when it came to picking my friends or when judging people. It hurt the first time I was called the "n word" by a group of older kids. It also affected me when I heard a parent saying that I was probably only in the accelerated program because of a quota. I still remember the first time I saw the KKK marching through the streets of my town and had to be told who they were and what they represented. Imagine seeing the faces of people you saw on a regular basis and discovering that they really hated you because of who you were. Imagine being followed through a store because the owner thought you might steal something and then leaving the store only to find out that your friend who happens to be white, had stolen something.

    Yes, I am a liberal. I believe in change and progress. Most conservatives tend to believe that change will come along on it's own whereas liberals want to help bring it about. If Lincoln had been a modern conservative then slavery would probably be ending sometime around 2024. It was liberal thinking that helped bring about social change for the better.

    We all know this board, in political terms "leans to the left". There are more "liberals" than "conservatives" on this board (with a bunch of phony Libertarians that should be put in their place by the few who really are). And yes, tripod knows how to word statements to rustle a few feathers when necessary. But let's be clear about something.

    If we look at the most recent threads on this board, at least 44% of the topics have been started with a blatant right wing/conservative point of view:

    http://www.lpsg.org/149064-obama-eligibility-challenge-moves-forward.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/151088-some-good-ol-fashion-schoolin.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/148096-kill-the-bill-start-over.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/150151-looks-like-joe-wilson-right.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/149746-jimmy-carter-playing-race-card.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/149748-paging-mr-sharpton-paging-mr.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/150726-wheres-concern-over-middle-east.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/150838-pelosi-modifying-healthcare-bill.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/150939-democrats-playing-political-games-american.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/149275-largest-march-on-washington.html
    http://www.lpsg.org/150677-income-tax-rates-and-economy.html

    Perhaps Tripod does have some level of validity to his statement after all? I mean, if this was such an evil "liberal" board, then why does right winged rhetoric appears on nearly half of the front page?

    This forum is a right wing Romper Room.

    Miss Sally's magic mirror needs more iTunes and less Clear Channel.


    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.

    How can you reason with people who believe their own skew and fabricated static? You are talking about reasoning with people who voted for Bush--not once-- but twice.

    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.

    And when they get angry, their blood sugar levels rollercoaster and watch the fabrications begin. When they get mad, they turn to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck or Ann Coulter.

    You fucking croutons have nothing to be angry about.

    :eek:I could go for a Caesar salad at OUTBACK Steakhouse right about now. IT IS TO DIE FOR!!!

    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.

    And the Japanese...and the Arabians...they own some of America. Everytime an American fills a tank with gasoline...buy a Nintendo Wii, buy a Playstation1-3. Buy a PRIUS. You are buying Middle Eastern and supporting Japanese.


    You want to take the country backwards through time.

    Blame it on Superman. :biggrin1:

    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?

    The past was crap. But the Saturday morning cartoons and American food were remarkable. Black peeps weren't allowed to use certain public restroom facilities and not allowed to eat at McDonald's. (My mom had a co-worker bring her a couple of hamburgers from there. My mom wasn't impressed. She never liked eating there when she as a black woman was allowed to eat there.)


    Are you nostalgic for the times when black folk addressed all white people as sir or ma'am?

    Just don't call Paula Deen Ma'am. :eek:

    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?

    The whole grass is greener thing.

    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.

    Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage and Ann Coulter may want to keep theirs in their respective asses.

    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".

    Nostalgia is a beyotch!

    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.

    Racism, classism, sexism. homophobia, anti-Semitism are actually disguised entitlements and power of affluent white Christian men. What is better than power and influence...but more power and influence. But then again, you cannot obtain power and influence without stripping a person of theirs.

    It can be undone if you still have a beating heart.

    You cannot change a prejudiced mind from thinking and a prejudiced person from acting. You can only protect its thinking and their actions from affecting you.

    tsk, tsk, tsk

    Muslim population worldwide: 1.66 billion
    Catholic population worldwide: 1 billion

    estimates indicate Islam will surpass all Christian denominations by 2016

    Actually, in typical conservative fashion, you accuse Liberals of what conservatives here are most guilty of.
    There are PLENTY of intellectually satisfying defenses of modern Liberalism posted here.
    The simplest of which is the absolute failure modern conservatism has proven to be in actually governing.

    Clearly, to be intellectually satisfied would require some appreciation of intellect, which conservatives utterly lack ( at least, since the death of Buckeley )
    Yes, the Birthers and Obama as Hitler and "death panel"ists are all such paragons of dispassionate and reasoned discourse... a white conservative cracker being the first person in history to Heckle the first ever Black President is such fine example of the intellectually sound position of Republican conservatism in the US today...
    Right up there with bringing loaded guns to Presidential addresses...


    Currently the entire platform of conservatism is founded entirely upon lies that are readily shown to be so.
    Their positions are entirely lacking in any intellectual component. ( other than transparent thinking of pure personal greed in doing the bidding of their corporate puppetmasters- even when doing so is a disservice to the constituents they are supposed to represent.)

    EVERY conservative objection is a patent hypocrisy. They decry the Socialism of a Public Option... but endorse the single payer of Medicare ( sure, NOW that it has been passed and clearly serves the elderly better than any private insurer )
    They decry that Government can not handle anything as complex as healthcare while they throw trillions of dollars at the Defense Department, a SOCIALIZED armed forces where they trust the government to prudently manage the world's largest and most destructive arsenal... including 13,400 nuclear weapons spread all over the globe.

    They Decry ever expanding federal government, yet when in total power they created entirely new bureaucracies AND allowed vastly larger government surveillance and intrusion into the lives of the citizenry...

    They whine about the legitimacy of a Hawaiian birth certificate, while totally ignoring that McCain HAS NO US BIRTH CERTIFICATE at all

    So, seriously... please do not sully the word "intellect" by associating it with anything having to do with Conservatism.

    and BTW- Scientific testing has shown that conservatives are, on average, less intelligent, less emotionally secure, more fearful, and less informed than liberals.

    Denying that proof has any validity is NOT a valid argument.
    Stating that Liberals have offered no cogent defense of modern liberalism is not an argument.

    You need to actually demonstrate that their defense is not cogent, using example, analogy or logical reasoning.
    Which you have not...

    See, that's the thing about intellect... CLAIMING it is not enough.
    You actually have to show some.

    Gahead... give it a whirl, make an argument about how the magical 'invisible hand' will save us and right all wrongs...
    Gahead, explain with logical rigor how de-regulation has been a benefit to the American people.

    And when you can't... when every stupid ass thing you could pony up is easily shot down with real examples of the real failure of those ideas... then you can kindly STFU and go back to waving your blatantly racist placards and shouting your inchoate rage.

    Perhaps many of the more learned people have simply opted not to cast their pearls before undeserving swine? I can only speak for myself, but my ignore list has undergone some recent expansions.

    I can certainly understand your sense of frustration with so much Beck-esque mendacity being peddled about this forum recently, but do you honestly feel that a race-baiting tirade is the appropriate expression of that anger? Your OP was a very polarizing rant that offers little in the way of defusing the simmering tensions on this forum, but does give those you're railing against plenty of fuel to keep their fires of discord burning for a while.

    That said, yes, this forum has become a romper room in the sense that it's difficult for reasonable adults to hold any rational discussions amidst the ever-present noise.

    I have found that skipping this section (along with many others) makes my visits to this site FAR more enjoyable. I think I have not read an actual thread here (before this one) in over a year.

    And like HG, I have a pretty healthy ignore list full of people from all parts of the political spectrum.

    By the way blacks have it better in the US then any where else in the world as well.



    read up tripod and explain yourself! A Brief for Whitey Patrick J. Buchanan couldn't have said it any better.
