This is what happens when people trust the government to protect them. Now, I know the police response would have been a lot faster in the US, but 9 out of 10 times that still isn't fast enough. The Pulse club attack in CA comes to mind. Or the Aurora CO movie theater shooting.
@Rexvallachorum Great thread. I still find it hard to wrap my head around socialists - especially LGBT activists -embracing extreme forms of Islam that advocate for Sharia law. As for socialism in general, I always think of this meme :)
This is the article I thought I was tooting:
Who Are the Rich, White Men Institutionalizing Transgender Ideology?
Exceedingly rich, white men (and women) who invest in biomedical companies are funding myriad transgender organizations whose agenda will make them gobs of money.
Thank you RV. I should have waited until reading the entire thread before chirping in (i.e. Biden), and will do so in the future.
Biden ain't gettin' there. After his performance at that confab last Monday. Observations from the event is that he doesn't have it. When he finished reading his script 'speech' he started off the stage and forgot he was supposed to stay and answer questions. I;ll be surprised if he makes the first debate before gassing out.
I thought Crooked would be dead by now and I was wrong, so I'm not getting my hopes up that medical reasons will stop Biden being the nominee.
In fact, he would be GREAT as the nominee, come to think of it.
Its not about him croaking. Even the Dems in attendance were shocked at how feeble he was.
Well, you know what I meant, right?
@GodlessNZ Yep. My point was they know that too and it scares the hell out of them.
@RonOgletree Agree, but you had an interesting way of making that point. All good though, we got there in the end.😉
That we did partner. A bright and cheerie Sunday morning to you!
I defend Islam, as I also defend Judaism, Christianity, and any other faith... as opposed to supporting violent religious extremists, which come in every single flavor, believe me. I've met some of them.
I'm no socialist. So there are some problems with your premise, for starters.
Strawman is your logical fallacy. You're welcome.
Can y'all imagine my complete and utter shock at being blocked by this bigot after (extremely nicely) calling it out?
1) Read the SQV rules & follow 'em.
2) Blocking the messenger won't save you.
3) The messenger can still read your toots using other means.
4) They can keep reporting each instance of bigotry.
5) Just you wait till DAD gets home.
😂 😂 😂
Thanks and yes, it was a great thread until that point, which is why I was so disappointed to see the bigotry.
It's true that Churchill held those views, but it was long before WWII and if I took the time to research it, I wouldn't be surprised to see his views had changed some by 1965.
If he were alive today, I think he would agree with Trump, and work with the peaceful majority Muslim countries to tackle extremism:
President Trump stands alone...I can’t understand why people don’t see that he is ‘all in’ for the betterment of EVERYONE.
And a minor point of clarification for readers:
My protip #5 has nothing, nothing at all, to do with my being blocked. (As if! lol). No, I'm simply referring to the natural consequences of repeatedly breaking the SQV anti-bigotry rules in such a spectacular way, after several extremely nice replies. The Dad... he doesn't stand for that shit. No, not at all.
Who wants to hold his beer this time?
I don't think I'm powerful enough to carry the keg Dad drinks from. 😅
So is the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church.
Not that you'd care about that.
Ah... the penny drops. I reviewed the TL back a bit & saw some references to being Romanian & staunchly anti-Communist (which is great, I despise that ideology too), then I saw some mention of the "rat" trope... interesting.
We will never build peace in this world if we tolerate sectarianism, aka religious hatred, & its close cousin, racial hatred.
I'm agnostic but more & more supportive of all faiths, that adhere to the practice of genuine tolerance & peace.
@Rexvallachorum I think you fail to point out the difference between Islam and Islamism . I do agree the reason the left seems to align with the extremists in Islam is due to national socialism and their totalitarian ways but this is what makes us on the right look bad when we come across railing at one religion. This is a problem in the right echo chamber just as antisemitism is in the left echo chamber .
@Rexvallachorum Its called the red green alliance. EU socialists are at the forefront with their "refugee" syndicate.
@Rexvallachorum Its called the Red Green alliance. That's why leftists are so anti Semitic. Its in support of their alliance with Islam.
Socialism has cultish quality to it. People who subscribe to it demand 100% ideological compliance just like the catholic church had the holy inquisition to go after people and organizations that strayed from its dogma.
@Rexvallachorum As long as progressives run our government schools we will increasingly continue to have brainwashed children who grow up to vote socialist. We are doomed without school choice.
Might want to tone down the hate bub.
Disappointed to see this content in a thread I would otherwise be promoting to all. Your other points are terrific, but I don't condone treating all 1.7 million Muslims in the world the same as I treat Islamists, who likely aren't actual Muslims & have hijacked the faith as a tool for promoting their criminal terrorist cause, National Islamic Socialism.
How did you miss the memo that SQV is different to other platforms in this regard? Terrorism is attacked here, not a faith.
@Rexvallachorum How did you miss the memo that SQV is different to other platforms in this regard?
Joe Biden's hands were in the 'gun free zones' at it's inception.
@Rexvallachorum Pulse was FL
@Rexvallachorum pulse was in Orlando. San Bernardino was in CA .
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
