    Re: Is racism wrong?

    Respect, and PC, are not one and the same thing---People take offense now days, over things that are not even directed at them. A tree is cut down and somebody gets offended.---"Beware being the injured third party" --get those chips of your shoulders, and relax. It will be alright. Respect must be earned-not just given.

    I didn't say that. You implied that ANYTHING should be tolerated. Some things are PC nonsense, and some things are just disrespectful. And guess what? We can disagree about which are which.

    Not this kind of respect. You get it just for being a human being. I'm talking about basic decency and manners. You did learn that stuff, right?

    No, a tree gets cut down and somebody gets pissed off. Entirely different thing.

    No not tolerated, but allowed. People don't have to like what you say, but you have every right to say it anyhow--In America. ---People have the "right" to burn our Flag, (how PC is that?) but they best not let me catch them doing it. ---Freedom is not free.

    This isn't about rights. It's about not being an a-hole.

    People have the "right" to burn our Flag, (how PC is that?) but they best not let me catch them doing it.
    So first you complain that others complain about what you say, then you say you'll retaliate against someone who expresses their views by burning a flag. Make up your mind.

    but people have a right to be an Aholes if they choose. I ran into a couple at Krogers just today. ---I will defend a persons right to burn the flag, as long as they understand that I will exercise my rights to strongly object to them doing so. I have fought for much less.--I would never tell them they didn't have the right, just that like with all rights, there are consequences.

    A legal right, sure. But you don't have a right not to suffer the consequences, such as being told you're being an a-hole, or losing friends, or being kicked in the nuts, or being banned from internet forums, of whatever.

    I ran into a couple at Krogers just today. ---I will defend a persons right to burn the flag, as long as they understand that I will exercise my rights to strongly object to them doing so.

    And that's what I'm saying. There are consequences to being an a-hole. And that applies even if you whine about political correctness or whatever.
