I don't want to make any personal attacks, which was my inclination when I opened this thread, so I'll just say that this is deeply repulsive.

This line of argument recognizes that racism is a problem exclusive to the white community, which is important.

Played a valuable role in bringing many Americans to Islam, particularly under W. D. Muhammad.

Without doubt, of course they should be. All of them. It's an authority-driven system, and that's the center their authority. And it's only time until they figure out that they can get guns almost anywhere. Ugh.

ALL of them?  Holy potatoes.  Who are you, and what have you done with the DemPGH I knew?

DemPGH was always a bootlicker, I guess he's just a little more open about it now?

This thread is boring and is besmirching the good name of Update. If you can't post more interesting things, at least make posts where you inadvertently reveal your real name like this one:

Y'all are looking at the captain of the Upstate New York quiz bowl championship team here. We made quiz bowl great again by repeatedly crushing Ithaca High School with our mighty brains and redeemed our loss from last year. That time it was me solo vs. Ithaca's full team with me coming in second; this year it was our full team (sort of) vs. Ithaca's best player with him coming in second.

I'm not employed currently, but I made $26/hour at my summer job.

Here's the thing, though... if you're a person of Mexican descent who lives in the United States, that's obviously because you believe that the United States is a better country the Mexico*;

No, there are many Americans who happen to live in other countries but don't consider the United States inferior to those countries. I find it bizarre that you would assume this.

so, why wouldn't you do everything in your power to assimilate to the country that you yourself (implicitly if not explicitly) recognize as superior?

This doesn't even follow, and it's particularly bizarre in the context of the United States, seeing as that its history of immigration is well known and recognized.

Incidentally, this line of thinking can be employed as a theological argument: If the God that Muhammad preached about really were the author of human history, wouldn't people from Christian countries be begging to immigrate to Muslim countries, not the other way around?

Also, here's a bit of food-for-thought from Google Dictionary, on the definition of a bigot:

a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.

Just leaving it out there.

Oh, man, this is just like when Scott proved that I was the real racist. Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

I don't want you or anyone like you to think positively of me, and in fact I would have to reevaluate myself if your ilk did, seeing as that you've already established that you think I'm a "primitive wacko". My posts are merely a public service announcement for other members of this community.

Why exactly are you in America? This is my country.

I hope that someday perhaps you can find Jesus, seeing as that everything you say is utterly devoid of love for your fellow man. I'll pray for you.

Yeah, see, you keep trying to speak in abstractions because otherwise you have to actually confront the bile that you're spewing. You'd rather that I not be in this country because of my religion. I'm not sure why it's so difficult for you to admit that. If you're going to be a hateful bigot, you need to own it.

I've never gone on Free Republic just as I've never been on Stormfront. It would be nice if you would actually attempt to defend your repugnant statements instead of pleading that you have the right to make them, but I suppose that would require a level of concern for other people that you obviously lack.

I'll let this speak for itself and let you twist yourself into knots attempting to defend what it means:

Also, what I'm 100% opposed to is Muslim immigration, which is why I really like Trump's policy proposal there.  I want to see the % Muslim rate in our country be as low as possible and not end up as hellscapes like parts of Brussels or Paris with primitive Muslim wackos.

Yes, if one consistently spouts hateful and dehumanizing rhetoric, it obviously reflects on them as a person. Opinions don't exist in a vacuum.

Young Goodman Brown is, I believe strongly, the most important American short story.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: CA-SUSA: Harris ahead of Sanchez by 4 on: April 05, 2016, 01:49:05 pm
There is no reason for the Republican Party to put up a serious candidate here, since no Republican can win. If, as expected, the general election is between Harris and Sanchez, Sanchez will win by getting more or less the entirety of the Republican vote. Of course I hope dearly that Sanchez finishes in third place.

The difference is that Muslims in America have rather more money than Muslims in Europe.

Atlas Forum poster RFayette displayes an unstable worldview–demonstrated by regular, extreme changes in belief–and a strong proclivity toward hateful emotions and rhetoric in all incarnations.

Yeah, that's the sort of person who joins Daesh. Certainly he's by far the likeliest poster on this site to do that.
24  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of referring to the Labour party as 'Labor'? on: April 03, 2016, 09:12:00 am
Anyway, the language differences between American and British English have always annoyed me.  Brits were speaking English way before Americans were, so I don't see what right we have to mess with it.

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are you sick of the 'Bathroom Question'? on: April 01, 2016, 11:19:08 am
Yes. If something must absolutely be done to prevent those without penises getting a peek at those with them pissing, then mandate doors on urinal stalls.

Actually I take back my previous post, I'd totally support a law banning urinals. They're the worst. Regular toilets for everybody!
