Re: Almost a caricature
I know it's not true. That's the point. It's called sarcasm. I'm pointing out that your abhorrence for so many disparate groups is the antithesis of His teachings.

Anyone can say Christ leads their life. Anyone can go to church. But few follow His teachings.

The ethnic identification issues are up and running.
This was part of post 255, and it was part of a reply chain that you got involved in.

quote:

A joke, perhaps, but now, 66 years after the death of ******, 183 years after the massacre at the Alamo and 18 years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks we're faced with "The Squad" the new face of the Democratic Party is a Massachusetts socialist, a descendant of the Conquistadores and two Muslims!

The only thing saving Republicans from all of the blame is that one of the Muslims (the one from the St. Paul & Minneapolis district) has been attacking Jewish folks in a really disgraceful way.

It is all ugly regardless.

No she hasn't. She is only attacking Netanyahu, the fascist dictator of sad Israel and his Likud assholes.

Get with the program. Similar to Trump here in the USA. I attack Trump everyday because I am a patriotic American.

Anti-semetism

You and Xong seem to in total disagreement about this. What attacks of a disgraceful nature are you referring to?

I'd like to see some full quotes to decide.

Re: Almost a caricature
Yeah, you love Catholics and Muslims and Episcopalians and liberals.

Oh, wait...

You abhor them.

Wow, I'm getting blamed for something other people said. Why shouldn't I point out misdirected anger? The sum of my criticisms of that politician is not the sum of all people's criticisms for that politician.

Re: Almost a caricature
Sure; the rightwing rage machine has painted Pelosi as some kind of left wing extremist for so long that I'm sure many do consider her to be too far to the left.

What about you? What has she actually done that is "off the page"? Surely pushing through Obamacare can't be considered all that far left?

I think you're misunderstanding what I was trying to point out. The old guard would say that Pelosi has long been a champion for things like racial equality for 30 years. That even as somebody as far to the Left as she can be challenged is a sign of the times. Now this Squad comes through which, in a way, is a product of the Left's own rage they've been pumping into kids heads. Well, now the chickens have come home to roost... and this image of constant injustice and oppression has boiled over to where nobody is safe from its scorn. Might as well nuclear waste. Its toxic. Nancy Pelosi, of all people, can be accused of racist tendencies. Bernie Sanders, of all people, can get shouted down and hijacked from his own campaign and charged with the same.

Who do you think stands to benefit from that in-fighting? Democrats often get upset by the phrase The Left is eating itself, but its totally true. And if you want to know what my view of it is, I think the foundation comes back to liberal indoctrination where a worldview of never-ending racism, sexism, homophobia, so on and so forth has been pumped into kid's heads for the last 50 years... to where they invariably see everything as a threat and that everyone is the enemy.

This, of course, does a disservice to good people and their good and honest fight. I don't agree with much of Bernie Sanders politics. But I think he is genuinely a good man with genuine intentions. But all this in-fighting only serves people on the Right who also are edging towards the fringes instead of edging towards the Center. I know most of you guys are convinced that I'm a prototypical Republican. And in a lot of respects I unapologetically am. But I don't want Trump to win... okay? He's dangerous. And I don't agree with the direction the RNC or the DNC is going. I need sane voices from the Left to present a legitimate opposition to Donald Trump. For me, thus far, that's Tulsi Gabbard. And somebody like her is getting drowned out by "The Squad," who has nothing useful to say and who seems to want all the attention for themselves.

The reason why I pointed out that Rashida Tlaib is an extremely liberal Muslim. Sarah Bellum and Faith were trying to link her to the 9/11 attacks.

Because you replied to the message where I raised the point even quoting relevant text. If you join a conversation the preceding posts don’t just go away.
