There are some unfortunate "rights" in your Constitution. The "right" to own slaves used to be there and the right to discriminate based on religious beliefs is still there.

And I know that the liberals will disagree with this, but I side with the Court on this one.

Not all of the right-wing is nuts. No more than all of the left-wing.

Re: Conservative Supreme Court Rules
Just in case you didn't understand ringo's post. He's not saying all the right wingers are nuts, just that you seem to side with right wing nuts.

Prager U also has some good presentations.

Also Dr.Jordan Peterson.

Conclusion? There are more ways to discuss/debate an issue than the popular leftist narrative.

You wouldn't know a "leftist narrative" if it sat down beside you in church. You're getting everything you think you know about the "left" from right-wing nuts like Jordan Peterson.

Re: Prager U also has some good presentations.
I doubt very much that either qualifies as “good”. Prager U is a (very) right-wing propaganda outfit.

But thanks for providing the proof that you are not a moderate.

My own conclusion is that you're posting bare links. Unless informed and rational arguments are included the chances are too great that they're just a waste of time.

Re: Prager U also has some good presentations.
Jordan has a perfectly rational argument.

Transcript writes:

you know I think the idea of white
00:01
privilege is absolutely reprehensible
00:02
and it's not because white people aren't
00:05
privileged you know we have all sorts of
00:09
privileges and most people have
00:11
privileges of all sorts and you should
00:12
be grateful for your privileges and work
00:14
to deserve them I would say but the the
00:17
idea that you can target an ethnic group
00:20
with a collective crime regardless of
00:22
the specific innocence or guilt of the
00:24
constituent elements of that group there
00:26
is absolutely nothing that's more racist
00:28
then that it's absolutely abhorrent

I totally agree. The only counter-argument that most of you have is..."Well what do you expect? He is a conservative nut".

You really are pathetic.

White privilege is NOT BEING TREATED LIKE BLACKS ARE! NOT HAVING YOUR CHILDREN TREATED LIKE THEY ARE BLACK!

How the fuck hard is that to understand?

Re: Prager U also has some good presentations.
This first video is pathetic. His argument is that since he is black and supposedly he hasn't been subjected to something based on his race means that nobody else has is totally ludicrous, especially since there are literally tons of studies (if you were to weigh the printed content) that provide ample evidence of the contrary, like redlining, higher or rejected insurance, higher prices on car sales, etc. If you even took a few minutes to research this you could find this out on your own, but no you post this shit video and expect us to take you seriously.

Edited by kjsimons, : No reason given.
