      See that's one of your huge malfunctions. Islam isn't a race. It's a evil philosophy/ religion.

        I keep making the mistake of assuming I don't have to spell everything out. I don't fault anyone other than myself at this point. For the sake of brevity I wish it wasn't necessary, but it is.

        Hating an entire religion and hating an entire race are both equally as bad. One cannot go around screaming racism while making anti-Muslim posts. The negative impact racists and bigots have on a free society are the same, the hate and reason for it are the same. Just different targets. And people will always try to rationalize their hatred whether it be bigotry or racism. It's ok to hate Muslims because they follow an "evil religion". It's ok to hate blacks because of higher crime rates. If one isn't justifiable then neither are.

          For me its more like pity for those who are under the thrall of Islam. Remember, its a 'good' thing to kill a person who becomes a agnostic/ atheist or gay. Oh and you can rape girls and take slaves. Kinda the definition of evil.

            I have to say, the Trump opposition is more vile than the Obama opposition was. And the never-Trumpers don't want him to succeed because they don't like straight talk, even though he's passing a Republican agenda.

              Where have you seen racism lately? Can you point out the issue on Trump's agenda that persecutes blacks, Muslims, or whoever is the flavor of the week? Racism seems to have been an Obama epidemic.

                There has been tons of it in the news lately, but if I cared to discuss it I would have. You'll have to ask the people who were screaming about racism in this thread that question, it wasn't me.

                  You might try looking back to post #25 of this thread, where you are the first one to inject race into the discussion(as usual).

                    Sorry If You’re Offended, but Socialism Leads to Misery and Destitution

                    ...
                    On the same day that Venezuela’s “democratically” elected socialist president, Nicolas Maduro, whose once-wealthy nation now has citizens foraging for food, announced he was lopping five zeros off the country’s currency to create a “stable financial and monetary system,” Meghan McCain of “The View” was the target of internet-wide condemnation for having stated some obvious truths about collectivism.

                    During the same week we learned that the democratic socialist president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, is accused of massacring hundreds of protesters whose economic futures have been decimated by his economic policies, Soledad O’Brien and writers at outlets ranging from GQ, to BuzzFeed, to the Daily Beast were telling McCain to cool her jets.

                    In truth, McCain was being far too calm. After all, socialism is the leading man-made cause of death and misery in human existence. Whether implemented by a mob or a single strongman, collectivism is a poverty generator, an attack on human dignity, and a destroyer of individual rights.

                    It’s true that not all socialism ends in the tyranny of Leninism or Stalinism or Maoism or Castroism or Ba’athism or Chavezism or the Khmer Rouge—only most of it does. And no, New York primary winner Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t intend to set up gulags in Alaska. Most so-called democratic socialists—the qualifier affixed to denote that they live in a democratic system and have no choice but to ask for votes—aren’t consciously or explicitly endorsing violence or tyranny.
                    ...
                    But look: Norway!

                    Socialism is perhaps the only ideology that Americans are asked to judge solely based on its piddling “successes.” Don’t you dare mention Albania or Algeria or Angola or Burma or Congo or Cuba or Ethiopia or Laos or Somalia or Vietnam or Yemen or, well, any other of the dozens of other inconvenient places socialism has been tried. Not when there are a handful of Scandinavian countries operating generous welfare state programs propped up by underlying vibrant capitalism and natural resources.

                    Of course, socialism exists on a spectrum, and even if we accept that the Nordic social program experiments are the most benign iteration of collectivism, they are certainly not the only version. Pretending otherwise would be like saying, “The police state of Singapore is more successful than Denmark. Let’s give it a spin.”

                      Post #25 does not "inject racism" into anything. It focuses on the absurdities of political correctness.

                        In the main, successful socialism depends on keeping defense spending down by making America pay for everything. Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the usual freeloaders.

                          Quote: "And the right is threatening to hang black congressmen from trees, ..." sure sounds like it to me.

                            Try reading the full article. You mention the three exceptions(...propped up by underlying vibrant capitalism and natural resources....) to the dozens of examples of how socialism fails.

                              Both the left and the right are threatening politicians. Sorry that's the only comparable example present on the right.

                                Without citing a source, would look to be your opinion only.
                                "The Right" comes nowhere near matching frequency and intensity of "The Left" as shown by the five week camp-out in front of ICE in Portland, OR presented in the OPs here.
                                As usual, the actions of some small fringe are the basis of your broad-brush of either side, though I note you rarely fault specifics of "the Left" and seem to largely focus on "the Right" and "Whites" mostly.
