I don't think people are are afraid to state their opinions but I do think that people like you try to shut them down for voicing them.

I've heard people say that they've have given up trying to argue with regressive leftists like yourself and have resorted to do their arguing at the ballot box, leaving people like you to question 'How did this happen?' 'Why didn't we see this coming?'
Yup. As the only Brexit voter amongst my entire circle of friends and colleagues, I identify completely with this.

... of course, it's entirely possible that in the privacy of the voting booth I wasn't the only one who felt that way...

.... But we are talking about simple minded narcissistic and selfish individuals.

These individuals are prevalent on all sides of political debate---well all over society in general.


Are we going to take a stand against all for the poor behavior of a few.


Generally, now in society this is acceptable only in a one way direction from the 'victims' to the 'oppressors'.


If you belong to a modern (western) minority group, you almost have free reign do claim victim-status and attack (theoretically or physically) the majority group, and still be supported and feel like it is the correct thing to do.

And then you might sound like one of those individuals for example who says well, if black lives matter, why don't all lives matter! And you really don't understand the issue at all.

Because you take issue specifically with political correctness in all shapes and forms. I would say that would make you a person who is quite likely to knee jerk at anything that might question your hegemony.

Definitely true.
I vaguely referred to them as the 'modern western' minorities as an umbrella term to describe the minorities that are hip to support at the moment: POC, LBGTx, women, muslims, immigrants, asylum seekers, etc.

Are you trying to use peer-pressure to shame and alienate him for thinking differently? I thought the political Left embraces freedom and diversity of thought?...except only not when it's actually different?

As a BLM supporter, were you invited to their Memorial Day party?:

“When we say ‘The People’ we mean Black People. Being intentional around being around Black People is an act of resistance. This is an exclusively Black Space. So if you do not identify as Black and want to come because you love Black People, please respect the space and do not come.”

http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/05...ial-day-party/

Soon they'll want to have black-only schools and black-only pools. Water fountains. I'll bet you can't wait to defer to sit at the back of the bus, lol.

Re: I hate Illinois Nazis!

So you have revealed exactly how you feel, but that comes as no surprise. Where in the BLM are people espousing black/white segregation? Like every movement BLM has also been hijacked by extremists, but that hardly makes up the majority of people who support the movement or are of the opinion that American society is skewed in favour of white privilidged males and that it is specifically young black men that are often mistreated by the police. Regardless whether the demographic (young black male) is often associated with poverty, violence and crime, lumping everybody from that demographic in one group and having a policy of shooting first and asking questions later is undeniably wrong.

So I ask you, do you support the right of the right to give Nazi salutes, promote hate and instigate violence? Should the far right be allowed to discriminate against particular segments of society? I ask because our societies are made up of many different races, colours and religions. Hate breeds hate and in multi cultural and secular society there is no place or room for those sentiments.

I'd agree with you but remember the poster is quoting Glenn Beck's site. To believe that really takes gullibility to a quantum level similar to believing Infowars/ Prison Planet.

Ah, attempting to shoot the messenger. (both myself and whoever's site it is where I read a bit of news) Was there something biased about the article? Are you saying that it did not happen, that it's fake news? That they are misquoting BLM's statement, and that people of any race were invited to attend the party?

If there is another side of this story that you feel has not been represented, please represent it.

Go do your homework and then come back to talk.

Oh the event took place alright, but a Google search only produces hits on right-wing news sites and blogs. Anything from the mainstream media is completely absent (from what I could see at a glance). Funnily enough, a Huff post article mentioned 3 other "black-themed" events; focused on dance, culture etc, but nothing at all on this.

Although I sympathise with the principles of the BLM movement, it appears to been hijacked by an extremist element, leading to horrific events such as this. What the hell did they think they were going to achieve?
