  1. Bullshit. Not one, NOT ONE of the Democrats I know supports defunding the police. Police reform, yes. Carte blanche defunding? No.
  2. One might assume this is because you haven't the foggiest idea what it's like to coexist with another human being and are afraid of cats.
  3. Wait! So some stupid Libtards made an error in judgment, recognized it, acknowledged it, changed it, and then apologized? How fucking weak! They should double down like our esteemed leader. That's showing true strength!!!!!!! (Do I need the purple font? Maybe more exclamation points?)
  4. I haven't the foggiest idea what you mean that you can't agree with the part in bold. The part in bold states: " [t]he majority (or the old guard). They don't." What's to disagree with? That the majority is the old guard? My point is that minorities in the US don't necessarily want to be like the majority per se. Yes, everyone wants the freedom to pursue their dreams and goals. But many who immigrate want to maintain their cultural identity while living their version of the American Dream. The same is true of other minorities: they don't appear to want so much to assimilate, but to mainta
  5. I don't pretend to be a spokesperson for BLM; I'm simply repeating my impressions based on what I see and read. For specifics, I suggest you do the same (realizing the difficulty in doing that). There were some great speakers during the protests here in Seattle, and a lot of discussion took place between them and the city leaders. Of course, I wasn't privy to those. Again, some validation of the cause would help--let BLM know they are heard by responding with legislation or actual action. What I see now is a lot of politicians who sympathize but nothing changes. That's how it's been for d
  6. “What she is saying within this statement was that there was an effort to give the peaceful demonstrators room to conduct their peaceful protests on Saturday. Unfortunately, as a result of providing the peaceful demonstrators with the space to share their message, that also meant that those seeking to incite violence also had the space to operate. The police sought to balance the rights of the peaceful demonstrators against the need to step in against those who were seeking to create violence. The mayor is not saying that she asked police to give space to people who sought to create vi
  7. If Biden is a shell of himself, and Donnie was never more than a shell, does that make the debates a Shell Game? (I'll let myself out.)
  8. There are plenty of cites in the link I posted above, including Faux. But that might rattle your comfort zone, so you appear unwilling to set aside your TDS long enough to read it.
  9. Quite a bit if I were to follow your lead. I prefer not.
  10. In your dreams. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/09/everyone-knows-its-true/616138/
  11. MB: This is not only ONE incident (and by the way, I can come up with eleven people who can't corroborate the report either). Maybe you should read the Atlantic article that sparked this off: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/09/trump-americans-who-died-at-war-are-losers-and-suckers/615997/ You're taking this very personally. I'm very sorry you're upset. (Everyone else: don't tell MB that the tooth fairy isn't real.)
  12. Wow. Just wow. You just pooh-poohed accuracy. Any semblance of credibility you ever had is now lost.
  13. Well I didn't hear him say those things either. So the report must be a lie.
  14. Must have been a while ago. Murray has been out for years. Clearly you as ignorant as to who is the mayor of Seattle as you are about the Seattle response to the protests.
  15. I don't know why everyone says you aren't funny. 'Cause THAT's funny.
  16. From David Brooks (albeit perhaps a little out of context from his article, but seems appropriate): "Through epic acts of self-discipline, the nonviolent civil rights marchers in the 1960s forced their foes to reveal that if there were to be any violence and anarchy, it would come from the foes. That’s how the movement captured the moral high ground and won the mind of the nation. "
