The supreme irony is that working class whites have Reagan and the Republicans to thanks for this mostly.

I certainly hope so.
128  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: A more inclusive affirmative action on: November 06, 2015, 02:45:09 am
Yes, I have often maintained that this is how things out to be done - the current system puts wealthy minorities at an advantage over poor whites. Unfortunately this is only a financially feasible option for the wealthiest universities, unless vastly larger sums of money were pumped into higher education.
129  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary says we should be better pals with Netanyahu on: November 05, 2015, 02:04:06 pm
Jews have always been an important part of the Democratic coalition both in votes and in fundraising. The Obama admin's recent strained relationship with Israel has at least hurt the fundraising bit as reported by WSJ earlier this year. Hillary is trying to fix that. It is pretty much Politics 101.

It's funny how sometimes stereotypes play themselves out.

He encouraged it and actively urged Hitler to invade the British Mandate and kill all the Jews for him.

Mastermind? No. Accessory? Absolutely.

So you admit that Bibi was wrong when he implied that the Holocaust as we know it wouldn't have happened if it weren't for the Mutfi saying "burn them" (which has no citation backing that quote up, by the way)?
131  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary says we should be better pals with Netanyahu on: November 05, 2015, 11:51:08 am
The Mufti of Jerusalem was indeed pro-Nazi and opposed the relocation of Jews in the 1930s to the Palestine Mandate.

So? He had no role in the planning or execution of the Holocaust.
132  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: a group of students wants to ban Stonewall from being shown on: November 04, 2015, 10:47:16 pm
Trans people consider discussing the nature of trans-ness to be an attack because they know that once you think about it in any detail, it doesn't really make any sense.

This isn't about Trans people. This is about SJW's being over-sensitive. If someone identifies as a sex different then their body, then who am I to doubt them if they are of age and have no relevant mental illnesses?

IIRC we even have bran scans and such then show that often time people really are "a X trapped in a Y body".
133  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: a group of students wants to ban Stonewall from being shown on: November 04, 2015, 12:56:35 pm
SJW's are dangerous to free speech and liberal democracy as always.
134  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Warren have ran instead of Sanders? on: November 03, 2015, 08:22:17 pm
Cute.  I really don't have the desire to concern troll about the state of Sanders campaign outreach to minorities, but if this is the best you got, Clinton deserves to win.

Except that's what you've done this entire thread.
135  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary supporters smearing critics as sexist on: November 03, 2015, 05:58:28 pm
As a Hillary supporter her line of attack with this is pathetic and incredibly disappointing.
136  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump lashes out at DWS and calls her a "crazy, neurotic woman" on: November 03, 2015, 05:53:17 pm
As always, Atlas posters ridiculing someone gets even more amusing once you remind yourself how vastly less successful most of them are both in their careers and sexual lives. Like, I'm sure DWS is gonna lose sleep over a bunch of loser internet geeks disliking her.

The irony is you probably wouldn't apply this logic to Donald Trump, even though it still applies.

It's telling that the only defense of DWS provided on this board is "you're a sexist loser for not liking her!"

137  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Riots break out in India after Muslim barber refuses to close shop on Tuesday on: November 03, 2015, 10:27:28 am
These people wouldn't have rioted, in these scenarios if they weren't religious, I agree with that, however lots of atheists groups, (normally communists) have killed religious leaders as they want to institute state atheism and they will kill any counter revolutionary. There have also been lots of religious leaders/religious people dead because of hatred for religion by atheists and anti-theists.

Yes, and communism is widely panned because of their atrocities. You're pulling a classic "You Too!" fallacy. You're acting as if the atheistic persecution by communists somehow makes religions above criticism because "Atheists did it too!!"

My post still stands.
138  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why isn't Trump attacking Carson harder? on: November 03, 2015, 10:14:42 am
Carson could collapse in a minute, while Jeb/Rubio are built to last longer (though Jeb has faded after relentless Trump bullying). Trump is probably waiting for Carson to fail on his own (he's already spending half the money he raises to raise more money). If he wants to, I think Trump could send a bunch of "Carson performed fetal tissue research, referred abortion" mailers to end Carson right before the caucus.
139  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should the US cease trying to remove Assad from power in Syria? on: November 03, 2015, 10:11:05 am
No. Assad should be removed before ISIS.

Describe to me, specifically, how this is supposed to happen.

Do you mean Assad personally, or the regime entirely? Because the latter is off the table.

I hate to say it, but Donald Trump is right.
141  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who wins: Rubio v. Clinton? on: November 01, 2015, 02:10:38 am
Hillary: 270

Rubio: 268

142  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Riots break out in India after Muslim barber refuses to close shop on Tuesday on: October 31, 2015, 09:50:56 pm
You should never hold an entire religion responsible for the actions of individuals.

The simple truth is that many religions enable and condone extreme activity such as this.

These people wouldn't have rioted because someone cut hair on a Tuesday if it weren't for their religion. Fact.
143  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton allies continue to shout "sexism" at Bernie Sanders on: October 30, 2015, 09:24:43 pm

But not sexist.
144  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton allies continue to shout "sexism" at Bernie Sanders on: October 30, 2015, 02:22:54 pm
They're literally saying a Sanders aide mentioning jokingly that Hillary would be considered for VP is "sexist".

This is getting to Tumblr levels here and is making me lose respect for Clinton, although she remains my candidate of choice.
145  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Gravis Debate Poll: Trump, Rubio, Cruz the winners, Bush, Paul the losers. on: October 29, 2015, 03:39:24 pm
Is this an internet poll? Because that would explain everything.
146  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Riots break out in India after Muslim barber refuses to close shop on Tuesday on: October 29, 2015, 12:25:26 pm
EVERY SINGLE religion / belief system / philosophy has its fanatics. Atheists do too.

But some religions have a greater segment of radicals per capita and those radicals have more influence. You can't compare Christianity in Europe to Islam in North Africa or Hinduism in India.

You're making a false equivalency.
147  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Controversy Surrounds Billboard Up in Detroit. on: October 29, 2015, 12:17:05 pm
There's nothing wrong with the poster per se but the people who put up the poster are probably racists.

Which is irrelevant to the wider question of American support for Israel in foreign policy. Let's not pretend we're really talking about a billboard here.
148  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Ralph Nader is anti-South Park :( on: October 28, 2015, 02:16:10 pm
South Park is probably the funniest adult cartoon on television.
149  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Opinion of Third Wave Feminism on: October 28, 2015, 02:14:36 pm
captainkangaroo you're embarassing yourself with how thick and uninformed you are about this subject.

cut your losses man

You can't event form a rebuttal to anything I said so you simply throw personal insults at me. When you're ready to act like an adult, try responding to what I wrote.

Third Wave Feminism in a nutshell. Children with few real problems finding ways to be "oppressed".
150  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Riots break out in India after Muslim barber refuses to close shop on Tuesday on: October 28, 2015, 02:09:18 pm
A nice reminder that Hinduism is an awful backwards religion. Western hipsters give them a pass and it's time for it to stop.
