    He wasn't clear and since someone had suggested that some Muslims were violently opposed to Sikhs, he could also have been talking about that possibility. I have no doubt, however, that this is religious in nature.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    At least hearing the gunman is dead is music to my ears! My blood boils when someone who commits this senseless type of crime is even given a trial.

    Good lord, now you abandoned your silly semantic argument about what a social conservative is.

    FFS.



    Like the progressives, Jacksonian democrats right?
    Pretty left wing, in many, many areas but pretty darn racist in others.
    You are applying a specific political definition of modern ideologies.....to a party from nearly 200 years ago?!?

    More nonsense!

It doesn't even make sense not to, since some of them directly contradict one another in fundamental ways....

    This whole thing lately where the right is trying to confuse the concept of bigotry to include everything under the sun is just a lame attempt to divert attention from real bigotry. Nobody is falling for it.


    Repeating an already failed deflection: Poor tactics.

    A "political ideology" consists of what? People. Can you be bigoted against people? For whatever reason? Yes you can, if your negative beliefs towards them are irrational and based on ignorance, bias, assumptions and stereotypes... as your attitude about "the right" is.


    You're a terrible embarassment to all reasonable Progessives and liberals every time you open your mouth lately.

    No I haven't.
    Progressives were some of the first modern liberals.
    With many modern liberals wanting to preserve their traditions and beliefs.
    They also happened to be pretty racist.

    So it's meaningless that they supported "left wing" policies, but also happened to be racist?

    Repeating "more nonsense" doesn't make something nonsense.

    You all realize that this political stuff is all idiotic, right? It's like saying all Muslims are bad because of 9/11 or saying that all Christians are bad because of the morons at the Westboro Baptist Church. Overgeneralizations tend to be lazy man's arguments. You want to group all people of a political ideology in a neat package, you're not only going to fail, but you're going to make yourself look dumb. This is for all of you, left or right, who do this. You know who you are... and of course, those of you who do it won't admit it or stop doing it. You'll just continue to spew illogical overgeneralizations and continue to look foolish. At least the rest of us can keep pointing it out and laughing at you.
