Let's mention the yet unnamed Frenchman and the Armenian who helped the 3 Americans


Plus what about BELGIUM. The mess started in Brussels which happens to be in Belgium

Wooly ! Not to forget my very personal moral support

Don't fool yourself though, even those you're protecting now will have exactly the same opinion about future waves of immigrants. In fact, UKIP in UK managed to gather quite a few people from the so called minorities. Imagine, Indians and Pakistanis being terrified by the hordes of East-Europeans!!! Und so weiter und so fort.
In all of your gaming I don't like personal attacks, have to be honest on that. But, do as you please, it's just a forum.
I met a French Muslim family who were very much fans of Le Pen. They said their parents had come to France to work hard and had always respected her culture and never demanded any charity or support but the more recent immigrants were taking the pi$$ and giving Muslims a bad name and Le Pen was absolutely right to demand they be sent back.

To assume somebody is going to be a liberal leftie just because he's got dark skin is itself a racist assumption. But liberal lefties are not very good at seeing their own racism.

The discussion was about answering bigotry with bigotry (you might want to review the discussion on IRA). I had no idea DB was a liberal leftie.

LOL, compared to some of the fascists on this board I'm a dyed in the wool Stalinist.


Sad how twisted "conservatism" has become over the last few years.

You dislike hordes of immigrants coming for our goodies and bringing terrorism with them? Well, that's what quite a lot of Brummies thought about your people.

They were wrong then just as you're wrong now.

@ZuriRollt

@ Lorena 1 - you want to practice what you preach?
You've groaned at me in around 5-6 posts today, within 2 different threads.

I've no problem with this - but I did listen to your defence statements to this terrorist without comment or groans for a good couple of days...

I wasn't aware I was preaching. Can you say what exactly you mean? If you meant my post on acting civilized than yes I stand behind it.

Did not think groaning would be hurtful for you, so I apologize and will not comment or groan on you in the future. What happened is I found some of the things you’ve said questionable,looked up what other things you’ve said and those Ive found silly or ignorant I’ve groaned at. No big deal but if it bothers you overly much, I’ll un-groan (is that possible?). It was never my intention to hurt you.



I certainly wasn't hurt by you , I just don't find it very civilised behaviour.
Was just pointed out to me that you've groaned at 17 posts in the past couple've days - so don't worry - I still don't take it personally. It's fun, I usually don't get groaned at with such frequency in "real" life .

But it is distracting that you didn't bother to read my other posts in this thread in-between, and a bit sad that such a topic was reduced to a random groaning exercise...

These guys deserve their medals, and at a guess, I'd say the guy with the weapons was a terrorist

Same "phenomenon" in the 'States. Well, phenomenal to Lefties anyway. They seem to think because they whine for minorities that they own minorities, and will therefore support all their lefty shenanigans. Except a vast majority of minorities are actually culturally conservative. They end up supporting conservative causes.

We see this with Italian migrants in Switzerland as well. They will vote SVP. Its only because they choose to think objectively and clearly, instead of buying into Lefty delusions.

Stupid is as stupid does.

.
It's that because they don't want more Italians to come? I doubt. It's always them, the others.

The Democrat's talking points are that the Republicans are white rich people who want to oppress and enslave you. And there are some representative Republicans who might play into that role just as well. But it is not at all what conservatism is about. For example, a vast majority of hispanic voters are against abortion. Blacks are against immigration. So what you might see in representative elections may not reflect the convictions of voters. They're pitched a story about who is looking after their interests.

To add: Its more socio-economic than race. Minorities, when the come fully into their own, succeed and become self-sufficient, are just as likely to be conservative. Examples would be the likes Ben Carson, Condeleeza Rice or Colin Powell. Another example; in Arizona, there was a referendum on English only schools vs. Spanish in schools. The Latino-American citizens overwhelmingly voted against spanish in the classroom.

Well the race card certainly is played in the US.

Interesting to watch is the support Donald Trump is getting from Black and Hispanic voters. That ought to confound the Marxists a bit.

Is this true? I just googled but couldn't find anything except that 93% of his supporters think that "Blacks who can’t get ahead in this country are mostly responsible for their own condition"

I wonder how much of that 93% is black. Because a basic tenet of conservatism is that you are responsible for yourself.

Your question leads me to believe you haven't digested the concept. ;-) but thats alright.

Here, I wasn't aware of this until you asked and I googled. But I understand why:
POLL EARTHQUAKE: Trump leading among minorities, insiders in total shock.
