"We hold as undeniable truths that the governments of the various States, and of the confederacy itself, were established exclusively by the white race, for themselves and their posterity; that the African race had no agency in their establishment; that they were rightfully held and regarded as an inferior and dependent race, and in that condition only could their existence in this country be rendered beneficial or tolerable." #fuck #politics
Interesting. Profiles like this are silly right wing conspiracy leaning, behave like other right wingers. Post lots of politics. However they have no idea what basic concepts like socialism are. I’m not talking about know the exact meaning or various nuances. But to at least know mandating kids go to summer camp has nothing to do with socialism. They have zero overlap. Capitalism likely has greater overlap in the example given. #politics #understanding #ignorance #right_wingers #uniformed #status_quo #pub
Liam Stacey wrote vile things. But do you know why he went to jail? "All the TV and newspaper reporters, columnists and opiners quoted his first tweet ("LOL f*** Muamba. He's dead. #Haha" – Stacey didn't use asterisks) and referred vaguely to "racist tweets" after that. But what were they? Did the reporters know but choose delicately not to repeat them? Or did they not know? Do the columnists who applaud the sentence know? Or have they – as I suspect – just seen the bowdlerised media, like the rest of us, and are satisfied with the hazy summary? What terrifies me is that people are nodding happily all over the country, pleased to see a clampdown on internet trolling at last...Anyone who's pleased to see a person jailed for a piece of writing, without bothering to seek out the precise words that were deemed illegal, should be ashamed of themselves." #liam #stacey #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #media #democracy #politics #troll #outrage #blind #web #social #twitter #vulgar #uk #pub
The reddit discussion thread with over 1000 comments relating to The Guardian's decent, but still pandering or conservative article about Liam Stacey. Ridiculous that this guy is going to jail in a first world country like the UK. #politics #reddit #outrage #discussion #debate #social #media #twitter #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #democracy #failure #blind #troll #web #vulgar #uk #pub

The hypocrisy of 'liberals' in video is funny, but the 'conservative' commenters don't realize how awful they are either, heh. #stupidity #hypocrisy #politics #pub

"These terms are meant to be for ethnicity not race. Though race can be a part of ones ethnicity, ethnicity may have nothing to do with race at all. This is the clap trap and misunderstanding I see all the timer here on Reddit. The problem is the PC crowd embraced what academia tried to do by introducing "Ethnicity" to get away from racism and instead it had become synonymously with "race."" #well_explained #explained #politics #racism #ethnicity #society #PC #pub

"Most people are happy with restrictions on free speech, as restrictions on free speech nearly always criminalize unpopular speech. I would LOVE to be able to throw people in prison whenever I disagree with them." #politics #freedom #free_speech #society #comment #insightful #pub

Summary: CVS pharamacist thinks the prescription is a fake. She arrives at CVS with crutches and an IV sticking out of her arm. An officer is there who arrests her saying the pharamacist hasn't made a mistake before and sticks her in jail overnight. Next day it is found she is innocent. So now she's obviously suing CVS. Though really the cops are just as wrong. Basically acted like the local CVS/pharamacists [paid] arms. -- Anyway, the comments are mainly filled with people angry at the cops, CVS, and the pharmacist. Many comments calling them idiots, power hungry, etc. But really, this stuff wouldn't be such an issue if we didn't have so many restrictions and laws in place with drugs. #politics #drugs #pharmacy #police #laws #news #corruption #status_quo #pub

I don't need you to "tolerate" me. I don't want you to merely put up with my presence. All I ask, all I have ever asked, is to be treated as a human being, that bigoted jingoism is not injected into every minute facet my life, that there remains at least the illusion of decency. #politics #myopic #part_of_the_problem #liberalism #pub
