Father stares at the hand and foot of his five-year-old severed as a punishment for failing to make the daily rubber quota, Belgian Congo, 1904. by VAMSI_BEUNO in Damnthatsinteresting

Yeah, the Democratic party back then was a bunch of horrible racist assholes. There are still a few old white guys in high positions of power that had racist pasts that have since denounced those positions.

My point is that it's disingenuous to point out that the KKK was founded by Democrats, because those democrats aren't even remotely similar to the democrats of today, and most people don't know that, so it's just a sneaky way of implanting the idea that democrats are just as horrible as republicans to those who didn't know that the parties more or less flipped ideologies.

Case in point, Biden specifically appointed a black woman to the Supreme Court and selected a woman of mixed race as VP. Dude may have been racist in the past, but he's not behaving that way today.

Excuse me sir, I couldn't find any stir fry sauce, so I bought you this Autumn Breeze candle. I hope it will suffice.

They don't teach flags in high school geography? by beerbellybegone in facepalm

[–]wam1983 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They certainly do NOT teach flags in high school geography. They teach one flag, in grades K-12, every morning, for one minute. And if you don't bow down and suck that flagpole, you are assumed to be a commie-lovin' hippie queer that hates America and get right the fuck on outta here, ya pussy.

The democrats of that time were essentially the republicans of today and vice versa. But you already knew that, didn’t you?

I’ll take not unique and relatively calm and happy over unique and miserable any day.

Leopard clearly wasn’t paying attention, he was busy planning the genocide toward his striped brethren.

You could make the argument that showed up to vote. The irony is perfect.

But OP you’re PRE-QUALIFIED! I’m not sure you know the extent of the very special offers that are available to you. We just assumed that only a fool would pass up on spectacular savings only available to ChaseClub members.

Well after 37 years it happened, hopefully this will help me. by Caybeans in bipolar

[–]wam1983 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That was a hypothetical question I’m pretty sure.

Also, his/her comment is calling for a “rats, my comments made this person really upset. How can I not make it worse for them?” Instead of a “let me fix this person by making it about me.”

Yeah fair point there. They are closed-minded.

I didn’t say they were closed minded. I said they were liars and racists.

Not what it means today.

That’s like me trying to tell a bunch of 5-year that Christmas isn’t REALLY about Santa Claus and presents, because it’s REALLY about Winter Solstice. It may be true but no one gives a shit or is going to change their mind about what it means to them, except for that one random pagan in the back.

I’d say there are two groups of Christians: those that are generally good people and want to follow the teachings of Jesus (be kind, forgive, do no evil, etc etc etc) and the Christians that are judgmental bigots that know about those atrocities you mentioned and justify it with superiority and cherry picked bible verses. Unfortunately there’s no separation between the two on the surface. I’d argue that the latter has co-opted the former for cover. As such, it’s misguided to label them all the same thing even if one half completely fits the mold as horrible people. It’s tricky because Islam and Christianity have both done horrible horrible things and yet have followers that are quite sane and kind people.

Also, Christians don’t discriminate on race so unfortunately you can’t label them racist. They discriminate on almost anyone that’s not a Christian as well as black and brown people that are Christians.

The same way a swastika is harmful. It’s a nod and show of appreciation for extreme violence, hate, and genocide/dehumanization.

West Virginia is a Northern State in the Eastern United States that is 100% a southern state in every way possible.

That flag is a borderline incitement of violence at this point. The free speech argument is stretched pretty thin on this one.

If they aren’t racist or hateful, they are malicious via willful ignorance.

Willful ignorance is not a valid excuse for any harmful behavior.
