Not 'my media'. Senile? Far from it, but think what you will if it makes you feel better.

Every derogatory term you used in the post in question, was geared towards white people. I asked about several other terms, and you jumped right in with both feet, believing they were expressly applicable to white people also.

The point of me posting the video, was to prove how bigoted and racist your post was. For some reason, you believe 'willful ignorance' is just a 'white condition'.

Wrong.

All religion is recognized and protected by our Constitution including the right not to have any faith deity. That is a very different argument than the understanding that by definition Islam is antithetical to our Constitutional principles of individual freedoms regardless of sex, faith, ethnicity, race or national origin. Something with which we have struggled as a nation, and are still struggling to achieve in our society.

I challenge you to exhibit where I have ever said otherwise.

It's because the right is their enemy. Not Islam. Muslim's are still a minority. Once they are a majority ( in a few generations ) the left will have to address their religious atrocities. Until then they will do their best to destroy the right, and the right only.

Of course there are white people in the clutches of generational poverty. I think the left refers to them as white trash.

Generally when a progressive prays, it is not praying but preying.

I was an active leftist for decades. I never witnessed significant leftist outrage over clitoredectomy, child marriage, honor killing, sharia-inspired rape laws, stoning, or acid attacks. Nothing. Zip. Crickets.
That's enough to give you a small taste. You can read the entire piece here: https://truthuncensored.net/womans-t...st-goes-viral/
All of these are basically against the law in the United States. For example female genital mutilation.

Quote:
U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 7 › § 116

18 U.S. Code § 116 - Female genital mutilation

(a)Except as provided in subsection (b), whoever knowingly circumcises, excises, or infibulates the whole or any part of the labia majora or labia minora or clitoris of another person who has not attained the age of 18 years shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/116

The reasons appear to be right-wing anecdotal BS.

Liberals do not support laws based upon religious beliefs. No liberal would vote to remove the prohibition against female genital mutilation in the United States or to impose Sharia law.

The belief that "professors finally have cause to teach their students to be proud of America for overcoming racism" is a false Right-wing claim because we're no where near overcoming racism in the United States. In fact there has been a dramatic increase in racism in the US as a right-wing reaction to the election of a black president. Studies indicate that the explicit anti-black racial prejudice by Republicans increased from 71% in 2008 to 79% in 2012. With the election of Donald Trump racism has exploded in the United States with the Neo-Nazi White Supremacists taking to the streets openly with their racist messages of hate.

This is one person's opinion and it's really a bogus opinion based upon anecdote as opposed to information. It's BS from beginning to end and does not warrant serious consideration.

That is simply your opinion. If this position were generally part of liberal group-ideology at this time, I believe liberals WOULD vote for such. It just happens to not be. Generally speaking, there's nothing inherently more objective about liberalism than anything else; you just like to think it is because its the way you lean.
