Hi and welcome to P.W., Jezeble...

Oh yes they are real, so dang very real. The problem is there are several fraction or levels of Liberalism.

You have the bottom rung.. The Left. Then there are Liberals and some where are the BOTS. Going deeper are the members of the Left Wing "Nut Jobs". And deeper still are degrees of the Progressives...

Ya they are real and all are to different degrees ..........

Acknowledging cultural differences does not mean I support the ridiculous divisions and 'special' status some would have us cater to. As I said, humans first, anything else is secondary.

It's interesting to see that many would make us all one bland group, and virtually 'illegal' to acknowledge any cultural difference between people, because, well, they see it as racist.
It is important to understand that the melting pot, where cultures blend together to become first Americans, has been replaced with the salad model, where separate components are heaped together but there is no integration. The salad model is the basis for the divisive identity politics practiced successfully by Barack Obama but unsuccessfully by Hillary Clinton. The salad model emphasizes the unbridgeable differences between group by fostering an environment of grievances and labeling any sort of integration as cultural genocide.

Consider the Caesar salad as an analog for the failure of the salad theory. It was invented in Mexico by a US citizen of Italian heritage to appeal to American tourists. Even the name Caesar spans multiple identity groups. But setting identity groups at each other's throats is what the salad theory is all about.

I'm thinking I need to spend tomorrow cleaning out my kitchen bookcase. I've got Mexican, French, Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, Asian, and a few others. Surely these have some unacceptable recipes.

Here we are blaming Liberalism like the blaze hopes you will do. The blaze, creating right wing hate with tiny stories from the fringe. The title lies again. One woman says she disagrees with the term "Asian Salad". The only reason this story is to provide reasons for hate on the right. I don't think anyone really cares about this story but it makes for a chance for you to all thank each others posts saying how awful this all is. One woman makes an observation and we are in an uproar. You people are really sheep. Honestly

I'll bring this post up each and every time you respond or post regarding 'right wing' fringe activities.....

We are discussing what someone said, I don't see anybody jumping off a bridge because of it. I bet you'd be a real gasser if someone were to post something about the 'alt-right'.

Just because some people make statements regarding their thoughts on someone else's thoughts, well, that's called 'discussion'.....
