    Your thinking in generalizations.
    Nobody (here) is smearing any group in general.
    I'm smearing people that think they get to say how anyone should think/act because of their skin color. Those people are racists.

    Yes I am thinking in generalizations.
    Not complicated.
    Its not wrong think for me to do so.
    I didn't say anyone here was a smearing any group in general.
    That's making it complicated.

    You smearing people because you think that they think that they get to say what they think as if they had the right to say what they think when you think that they are thinking wrongly and therefore should not be allowed to say what they think.
    That's bullshit.

    Specially when you know it's a straw hat.
    It's a smattering of fools that they put on tv to gin up this kind of reaction.
    It's not the truth.
    It's not relevant.
    It's just one of a trillion facts to tickle your fanny with.
    Hey anything the media can do to make you hate on blacks over bullshit is gravy.

    The white hates the black.
    The media does the middle job.
    Panders to my man but always working for the man.

    Generalizations are always true.
    Except when they aren't.
    The exceptions only prove the rule to be true.
    Even if not fact.

    spoken the last words ever to my commie brother and they weren't pleasant
    hanging w mom and the gf watching the game and as i bitch about davey gf asks if its possible for a manager or player to throw the game
    i say "sure it is" and commie says "like the black sox" and i say "exactly"
    a couple of moments later i'm explaining to gf that there's evil and greed that could conspire against an individual and it happens
    i was explaining how if someone knew where your kid went to school and their routine is could be persuading right?
    out of nowhere he says i'm threatening his sons, who i happen to love, w death and how would i like it if he threatened mine!
    at first i was shocked, then dismayed and ultimately really fucking angry at the insinuation
    didn't hit him but i definitely made it clear i was ready throw and basically kicked him out of the house
    he wasn't drunk or on drugs as far as i know but he is Capn's bestie so
    lots of conversations about people losing their minds theses days
    have no doubt my brother has lost his
    goodbye
    nice to know you

    Seriously though, sorry Mike! :(
    Been thinking about moving to Texas but ironically that's where all my outspoken liberal family is.
    I love them better when I'm not listening to them talk.
    Kinda sad.

    i totally understand
    look at this site
    unfortunately the problem seems to be that common sense people don't like liberal policy and ideas
    liberals hate anyone that doesn't agree w them
    i'm done pretending its different and i can be friends
    of course there's always exceptions and i keep my heart and mind open but man its getting hard out here

    Sorry this happened, but that's exactly what the Marxist types want.
    Everything needs to be class struggle between victim and opressor.
    If we talk to each other, we realize we all mostly want the same things for each other.
    Except for Rube. I don't know what he wants because I haven't got a copy of the alien decoder ring.

    i truly get that but he IS a markist and also apparently has lost his mind as well
    and the distinction does need to be made between markist leftists and liberals
    i do have decent conversations w my daughters bf who's mom is a personal secretary to a very famous liberal
    we talk about the lies both sides tell and where the rest of us stand in this vacuum
    but i've also gained insight into the thinking of the people like the guys who left this site over a difference of opinion
    they refuse to acknowledge or debate anything they believe and find people like most of us still here disgusting and vile and have problem saying out loud now
    that is now morphing into hatred, and not of ideas, but actual people
    not much you can do about it and some point
    in retrospect i don't think he actually believes anything he said
    the next morning he texted trying to dictate when I could see my mother and i shouldn't be around when he is
    actually tried to chastise me when i told him to go fuck himself
    sort of believe his end goal was to be rid of me since i always treated him w respect and hugged it out
    the end game was deep down he hates me and who i am

    It all started in 2016.
    Never said a word about politics in my life.
    Was out to lunch with the Texas family and my aunt tells me (somewhat in jest) that my uncle is mad at me.
    I ask why...
    ..."Because you support Trump".
    All I did was defend DT against a specific media attack on FB (my first mistake-haven't had FB since and I don't miss it).
    I ended up saying that I didn't support Trump (half true at the time; this was early on) to avoid conflict.
    I had no idea that I would end up being one of millions of people that had to hide their beliefs over the next 4-5 years.
    I have no inclination to put bumper stickers on my car or signs on my lawn...
    ...I don't attend rallies or protests.
    My (our) passiveness helped them create a hostile country where only 1 set of beliefs is tolerated.
    That's what has sparked my engagement and frustration more than anything.

    I don't give a shit what BM and CKWG think about politics. They are probably right about one or two things.
    But when are the good guys (which they presumably are) going to speak up for their neighbors?
    The uniparty is doing people dirty but they're getting what they want so who cares.

    don't know what's changed
    but there was a time where liberals and conservatives could simply agree to disagree
    now it's a personal attack if you don't agree with someone
    that's why i don't always speak up in this thread
    people like to bitch about trump because, well, he's trump
    but can anyone honestly say we'd be in a better place had hillary won?
    or how about biden... is he doing a better job than trump would have?
    i have never been a hardcore trump supporter
    but, in the end, it comes down to something very simple...
    i vote for the person i think will do the best job
    don't care whatever that makes me

    I don't think BM or any other DSP lib is necessarily unable or unwilling to talk to us.
    The tension is a two-way street and generally, people want to avoid confrontation.

    Also, we must remember that "their" ideas, values, and political agenda does not require their evangelism. The entire system does that for them. So why waste breath?

    Also..."We", not having entertainment, sports, media, academia, big tech, and corporations fighting our battles, are always on defense. So we are generally crankier and maybe unpleasant. So theyd rather not engage.
    Not speaking for everyone of course.

    Is there a chance they think we are vile and disgusting? Maybe. Probably.
    More likely, they think we are stupid.

    But I'll be honest, seeing otherwise intelligent people support shit like black lives matter from Orange County (or from another Californicated state) while cities burn and people die makes me think they're capable of being vile and disgusting themselves.
    A Joe Biden vote covers being stupid.

    It's probably not all as simple as this.

    To borrow a phrase from bestLakersfan...we are divided as fuck.

    one thing about liberals is they more or less walk in lock step
    right now there is a sense that they need to get their agenda all the way locked in by 22 since it looks like they are going to lose the house and the senate
    so everything that is happening is fully orchestrated and planned scorched earth policy
    the "republicans" say nothing since they hold the rest of society in similar contempt and just want to get back to the good old days where both sides split the riches
    really frustrating that liberals who used to say "question authority" defend an overt attempt to seize power because "their" side is winning
    if you recall those guys left because a poster questioned the madness of moving the allstar game from a black city over bs voter laws being racist
    you can't vote anywhere else in the world w out a photo id but somehow requiring it is racist?
    what does it take for someone to believe ish like that?

    That's some seriously ballsy shit to attack steal from a zombie.
    Most sane thieves stick to the living.
