I'll handle the KKK, neo-Nazis, etc. You handle the SJWs, BLM, etc.

Deal?
You are equating neo-Nazis with people who want to bring attention to the issues minorities face?

I guess that is how deplorables got their reputation.

If you cannot conceive that while every group has their extremists, some groups have a honorable goal and some simply do not, you need to do some soul searching. Or stick to your guns and embrace that you are not a decent human being. And that you are part of the problem.

there are good people on both sides - said Trumpkins

Only a Trumpkin would compare genocidal maniacs to overly sensitive college kids who want safe spaces.

Like I said, go rail at the universe if you don't like how things ebb and flow.

I'm implying that neither is justified. You make a distinction and say one situation is ok and one isn't. Even widespread issues affect us on an individual level. Not to hard to understand being fair and rational is it?

It almost seems, some days, that there is an unwritten "Jim Crow" against white straight conservative Christian American males.
White male here. And I can safely say that your post is pure nonsense.

Well, I am a proud Nazi-in-training.

We are kind of the least protected, lowest in favor "class" in todays identity politics


Weve seen this act out in the NFL over the last decade.
Take note of the reactions to openly Christian average white QB in Tim Tebow
vs
the reaction to openly racist average black QB in Colin Kaepernick.

P.S. I hate all the bogus racism crap that Obama and Soros drummed up the last decade or so. But, white, hetero males have abused much in America history. Payback is hell.
So racism and oppression are OK but it shouldn't be white people who benefit from it?


I was always taught those things were wrong. I wonder if our kids are being taught it is wrong or if they are being taught that it is just white people's turn to be at the bottom of the pecking order. Is that what "social justice" really means?


If racism and oppression are OK and we're just fighting over who should be top tog, shouldn't white people fight to remain top dog? Wouldn't that be the rational thing to do?
