@Mondale, that graphic is telling and further provides the evidence of a Balkanization of America. The fact that high % of Trump voters say white persecution is a thing here in the US is mind-boggling but they really do believe it. Per my other post in the other thread, the die-hard GOP is at the us vs. them stage at this point.
I'll go farther. That poll is super scary. Even as pessimistic as I am, I could hardly believe those numbers.
I mean, almost HALF of the respondents agree with the INSANE proposition that there is "a lot of dicrimination against white people". I mean, for f**k's sake. How ignorant would you have to be to honestly believe that. Jesus.

It will only get worse as they continue to push this crap and the US sees more changes (see figure below) but will improve once the crazies start to diminish as a percent of the US population



I think we are heading to a Balkanization or a South African situation in American politics.



I think the US will secularise at a faster rate; it's maybe about 20 years behind Europe now but 10 years behind in the 18-34 cohort.

It is really remarkable that Americans are now further from achieving Lincoln's dream of national unity than they were in 1890; there are people in this thread right now who feel more animosity towards the Confederacy than did many of the men who actually fought against it.

That most of you seem to view the civil war as 'WWII on American soil' is an indictment of the American educational system.
And exactly why should we not feel animosity towards people who were fighting to protect slavery?

Everyone practiced slavery at that time including blacks in Africa who sold their siblings as animals, The left is pathetic.

Actually, the US was one of the last countries to abolish slavery and it needed a war to do it. It was the last functioning democracy to do so. Only Spain, Portugal, Brazil and a handful of semi autonomous Arab states had not abolished slavery by the time of the civil war.

That history, in the South, was written by the losers probably should be corrected now. Better late than never.

Yeah, today was the ultimate low point in Donald Trump's presidency.

It's a low point in US history to be honest.

Nice reporting my post Sprouts. Twice.

What have you got against my grandfather shooting fascists?

I reported it once. And the fact that saying violence is good is disgusting? Pretty obvious to me.

I'd love for all who gathered at the original rally to be locked up, but I'm not calling for a battlefield against our own people

I have no idea what you're talking about. What have you got against my grandfather shooting fascists? He tried to get to Spain to shoot them before it was cool. His nephew sabotaged Rolls Royce engines he helped build because fascist Pinochet was using them in bombers. Some of them blew up. He got a medal from the democratic Chilean government for it. My family have a proud history of killing fascists Cheesy

Your family sounds awesome. We need more folks like your grandfather today.

Sprouts reported this too. Apparently for encouraging insurrection.

Yes, I did! Wasn't Kalwejt forced to take a timeout for doing this to averroes Smiley I'll play "victim" if it means taking out the worst one on the moderation staff!

My head will be held high if I do. Trust me Smiley

No Pasaran!

Political memos should not be circulated at work, period. If the guy has a problem with a policy, he should bring it up with his managers. If I circulated a memo challenging one of my company's HR policies, even if it was neither racist nor sexist, nor even political, I would probably be fired, too.

This.

13  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Millennials Leaving the Church on: August 10, 2017, 01:24:23 pm
This is key. Lack of apologetics training has hurt credibility.

Yes, it's unfortunate because even fringe positions like Jesus mythicism are causing unfortunate doubts because churches have not equipped people with the information to defend the historicity and reliability of the New Testament.  The fact that 1 Corinthians 15 can be dated to around 20 years after Jesus's crucifixion, and that the oral tradition it comes from is widely agreed to be much earlier than that (even among non believing scholars), and it is incredible how common the argument that the Gospel is nothing but legend and heresy from people who never knew Jesus is.

Writing about an event does not mean that the event happened, particularly any events of a supernatural nature. Not that it needs to have happened/recorded for the purposes of faith. For example the earliest Quranic texts, in terms of actual existing parchments, can be dated to the period of Mohammad's contemporaries. If historicity and reliability matter, then this would matter too.

What's more likely is that military escalation leads to Trump running around in circles, making poorly executed decisions or leaving generals awaiting his next tweet that the US military effectively bypass him and stage their own contained coup.

She needs to go into retirement and stay there. Hike more with Bill and stop thinking you are THE person Hillary. That's what's wrong with the Clintons.

Yeah. F-cking Clintons with their lifetime of public service and still wanting to serve the public. C-nts.

No.

North Korea is China's problem; they can disable the government there in less than 24 hours. Any sabre rattling has the potential to lead to international support for a Chinese led solution before the US.
17  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Why do you believe (or not believe)... whatever you believe? on: July 29, 2017, 03:18:29 pm
I'm Adoptionist in my theology as I believe that Jesus could not have been fully connected to his Divine nature prior to his resurrection as it would render the whole crucifixion into a farce if he had been.

I agree that there's no other way to reconcile the spiritual relevance of crucifixion without adoptionism.

19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Trump to police - 'Don't be too nice' - 'Throw them in the paddy wagon' on: July 28, 2017, 03:03:41 pm
https://twitter.com/BuzzFeedNews/status/891010404499021824

“When you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in. Rough. I said, ‘Please don’t be too nice.’ Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head – like ‘don’t hit their head’ – and they’ve just killed somebody? I said, ‘You can take the hand away.'”

20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: American Muslims growing more liberal, survey shows on: July 27, 2017, 01:59:07 pm
52% accepting homosexuality is higher than Pew survey responses (same wording) for Mormons, Evangelical Protestants, Black Protestants and 2% less than all Christians as a whole.

But yet Muslims are somehow the 'scary other'.

When I went there I saw so many Asians. Everyone always talks about Hispanics, or me it was Asians everywhere. That got me thinking, were they foreigners on vacation to Santa Monica, or were they California residents?
You can spot a foreign tourist by looking at them.

Ehh I tried not to make eye-contact. That's why I wear aviators. I wanna give off a MacArthur vibe. Cheesy

Oh damn, politically incorrect. #ジャップ・ライヴ・マター


You wear them because you have no sense of fashion.
22  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Lower the age of majority to 16? on: July 27, 2017, 02:59:25 am
It already is in Scotland, but not much is really different.
Voting age != age of majority.

The legal age of majority is 16 and has been for some time. The voting age for all but Westminster elections was brought down to 16 only recently.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Democrats and liberals in general need to stop with civility politics on: July 26, 2017, 04:23:19 pm
No need to stop being civil. But stop being so apologetic. Be an unashamed liberal or socialist, don't apologise for supporting rights and peoples.

Surely there is a better way to make and announce policy than via Twitter.
What is better than going straight to the masses??

The masses; the armed forces that this affects, are too busy to be twittering in the morning. Or any time during the day really.
