Racism and sexism (whether of the conscious or unconscious variety) are the most obvious explanations.

Look, the Pope seems like a really good guy 95%+ of the time, but nothing he says is that groundbreaking.  It's overwhelmingly reflective of the Catholic Church's longstanding doctrine.  The only difference is in the way he emphasizes and frames issues.  I'm generally pleased about the issues he's bringing to the fore, but more than anything this is an excellent re-branding strategy.  I don't mean that in a remotely cynical way, but it's a Twitter account specifically made to focus on progressive Westerners.  Is it that surprising that it reads this way?

I also don't see what's hipsterish about this.  It sounds exactly like plenty of middle-aged progressives I know.

Shh, let him have his fun.

Unexpected, but Romney.

Yeah, gotta go with Romney. I imagine Mormons were way more into civil rights at this point though, since it happened earlier.

Smith didn't die, so I'd imagine the priesthood ban for black people was delayed or possibly nonexistent.

Tweed absolutely. BK needs time away, but I think she's electing to do that herself and should come back on her own terms, not anybody else's. If Griffin's a mod he should be demodded, as should BK.

I'd hate to be that guy, but since when is Bacon King a woman?

She mentioned it on Update for Everyone once, and she's apparently discussed it more openly on AAD.

Good. It's about time protesters learn that the Dems are the graveyard of social movements.

White libs like Sanders gotta sit down and listen to the unjust reality facing people of color.

If they were even slightly specific on their plan, or even mentioned Sandra Bland, it would have made an impact. But he won't. Cause like the majority of the Democrats he doesn't have a plan, plain and simple.



He did mention Sandra Bland in Dallas today.

I'm in the middle of Revolutionary Girl Utena and Digimon Tamers.

I've heard RGU is brilliant, but I was never really able to get into it.

Has Baccano been mentioned yet? It's quite fun.

I actually like Randolph more than any of the primary candidates, so an enthusiastic populist vote from me.

I'm new, so I don't understand what quoting someone without adding any of your own comments mean. Does it just mean that you agree with me?

Yes.

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Republicans Are Too Angry About Gay Marriage on: July 13, 2015, 12:18:58 am
The whole gay marriage issue and the opposition to it are both nonsensical, it highlights a struggle for influence waged by rival special interest groups. Thus it is a textbook example of the decline of our political system.

Tell me, what special interest group is Jim Obergefell a part of?
