If people want to be angry, then they should be angry at the cowards that automatically apologized lest they be shouted down as being 'racists.'

Talk about worsening race relations. The thing people don't get, is that stupid stunts like these only make moderate whites very angry and frustrated, and pushes them towards sympathizing with the very far right like the alt-right and even extreme neo nazi types (the enemy of my enemy is my friend).

i have ancestors that fought on both sides of the civil war, but their actions are not my actions. unless i personally harmed someone, i refuse to apologize for anything i didnt do personally..

As an Independent middle roader I can say you are absolutely correct. The extreme left viewpoint the Democrats have made their platform has pushed me completely over the line when I used to just lean right on certain issues.


As a White, male, heterosexual, "cis" gender gun owner the Democrats have made it plainly known they don't want any support from me. No problem. I'm gone. And there are a LOT of others just like me.

Is there any doubt these people will directly oppress whites once they get into power? I can see it now. Caps on white employment, racial hiring quotas, government sending checks to only non-whites, white kids bused into poorly performing schools, forced integration.... when this happens then we will REALLY see racism and division.

So I guess $99 Billion is out of the question.

I would guess $1 is too high.
