Re: Charlton Heston
Is it because you suspect that you are going to be accused of racism?

oh i garantee it will happen.

If you have the courage to stand by your convictions, let's have out with it.

Just proves that you know the reason as well as i do, nice try on baiting me into this one, but "game recognize game" ;)

Create another thread about this topic, and i will be happy to let you know why. just not here on this thread.

I feel like it is a trap. you get me to say something, call me a racist, and then the admin steps in and i get banned for thread jacking and saying something that is not status quo. sorry im not a message board n00b, and i wont walk into that one

Re: Charlton Heston
If you are unwilling to back up anything that you insinuate, you have nothing with which to argue, so I assume that Mr Heston's racist views will not be mentioned by you again on this thread.

Just proves that you know the reason as well as i do, nice try on baiting me into this one, but "game recognize game"

More insinuation. No substance.

Making insinuations and then refusing to back them up is pathetic and childish behaviour. It is no way to conduct debate.

neither is blantantly disreguarding rule #10, but it seems like if you claim to be from the UK you are exempt from following the rules on this site.

Here is the information you requested.

Americans can not talk about this war that has been going on for the last 40+ years.

The Race War of Black Against White

By Paul Sheehan

Sydney Morning Herald, May 20, 1995

"The longest war America has ever fought is the Dirty War, and it is not over. It has lasted 30 years so far and claimed more than 25 million victims. It has cost almost as many lives as the Vietnam War. It determined the result of last year's congressional election.

Over time, the cumulative effect has been staggering. Justice Department and FBI statistics indicate that between 1964 and 1994 more than 25 million violent inter-racial crimes were committed, overwhelmingly involving black offenders and white victims, and more than 45,000 people were killed in inter-racial murders. By comparison, 58,000 Americans died in Vietnam, and 34,000 were killed in the Korean War.

Yes it is a war and expected to get worse.

God Bless,


"John 5:39 (KJS) Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."

Are you sugesting that I have insulted you or broken rule 10 with regards to you? If so, please substantiate this. If not, shut up about it, because it's not my problem.

You on the other hand seem to think that anyone from the UK is fair game for your whining and taunts. My nationality is irrelevant and your constantly bringing up the fact that myself and other posters are British, as though it were relevant smacks of xenophobia. It's also quite dull.

Au contraire - I've pissed myself laughing at many of Arty's comments. What was that about having tons of ammo regarding UK Law :laugh: and do you really think it only "smacks" of xenophobia? Though to be fair, it is probably just a large dose of inferiority - we should give him a break ;)

Apologies to AZPaul for the off-topicness - I have a hunch he will make a post complaining about this...

This may be seen as an absurd question so please excuse me in advance.

Is there any possibility of this thread getting back on topic?

Re: Racism
First, your link is broken. I Googled a section of the article you cited. I found this white supremacist site and this site, which is full of anti-Semitism, racist, sexism, homophobia and bigotry of nearly every flavour. I don't enjoy having to wallow through this filth. Please fix your link.

Second, what exactly are we supposed to deduce from your post?

Americans can not talk about this war that has been going on for the last 40+ years.

You seem to be managing.

Justice Department and FBI statistics indicate that between 1964 and 1994 more than 25 million violent inter-racial crimes were committed, overwhelmingly involving black offenders and white victims, and more than 45,000 people were killed in inter-racial murders.

So your argument is "Guns don't kill people, blacks kill people." is it? Nice. If that isn't your argument, then what is?

Care to provide some those statistics? You might also like to work out how many crimes were committed by people below the poverty line and exactly how many people below that line are black. That might just explain a lot.

Yes it is a war and expected to get worse.

If you're going to blame black people for America's gun problem, then I suspect you may be right.

To AZPaul3, I apologise for dragging this off-topic. Some comments are just so outrageous that it's hard to resist taking a stab at them.

i have been trying to but the haters are here. all this one is doing is trying to call me names and call me out, but he is another subject not up to the challege of creating a new thread. he would rather thread jack here, and break rules. that's why i more often than not try and ignore the crown's subjects.

Re: Racism
wow you are building quite a resume.

name calling
thread jacking
refusing to acknowledge or follow EVC rules
refusing to stay on topic
and now strawmanning an arguement (though i called this one which is why i remained silent).

told you guys it was a silly trap. this guy is so predictable. he has nothing to add but hate speech and his inability to stay on topic. he is good at putting words into other people's mouths though.

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Source
