    As for double standards of republicans, or conservatives*, I'll remind again that my two sons are one quarter "Hispanic"**, and their mother was the half Hispanic, but also half German(her biological mother). She was adopted by a Black couple(he was a G.I. stationed in Germany, this was late 1950s) when about five years old, so when married to her I had Black in-laws (her adoptive mom was a great Cajun cook)(they both passed on years ago). I've a two granddaughters whom are quarter Korean, and a grandson whom is quarter Japanese, and a nephew whom is quarter Sikh, so I'm inclined to think I may have more racial and ethnic diversity in my family than you do yours.

    * = I consider myself more Conservative than Republican, but since the Democrats abandoned conservatism decades ago, there's only one viable political party option available.

    ** = A rather goofy USA Census classification, since many Spanish speakers are as "white" as other Europeans. A worked with a guy from the Philippines whom was more "Hispanic" than he was "Pacific Islander" which is how our census bureau draws that line.
    I've left this alone every time you've brought it up because I do not want to get into your personal life. Most Americans are mixed with something. As an extreme example, there have been KKK members who have African ancestry in them. It doesn't mean anything, I'll just leave it at that.

      If it's worth anything, my step-sister is married to a white man. Eventually his parents will be able to go on a forum and say that they have mixed grandchildren. But, I also know how much his father was against his son dating and marrying a black woman. So the fact that there will be diversity in his family, doesn't change his generalized and negative views he expressed about blacks.

        I don't know that this is fake news, but it is very shoddy reporting. Can't tell an E-2 from an O-3 is
        pretty appalling.



        This strong economy makes recruiting difficult, so perhaps the CG kept him in grade for longer than normal
        due to a dearth of replacements. How long was he an E-2?

        Actually, the news article links the actual court documents, and the actual court documents say he's
        a LT in the coast guard.

What about that Isis wife who wants to come back to the us? Is she a never-Trumper extremist or what? I know this is a politics thread, but not everything has to come down to voting record.
          Maybe if you actually read the article, you might understand.

            Not much to say except that you should probably of kept your mouth shut:

            The conclusion is nothing that society hasnít already figured out. If youíre accused of any kind of inappropriate -ism, donít defend yourself by citing a particular action or relationship. Itís understandable that doing so seems like the best solution, but itís probably better to keep your mouth shut. Or at least be prepared to cite 50+ data points rather than the vague existence of ďsomeĒ friends.

              With the way you've tagged me with social and political positions that aren't accurate, you crossed that river long ago. FWIW, a persons race or ethnicity are NOT important factors to me. Their political views/positions are. And as you may have noticed, liberals and socialists are ones I have little tolerance or use for.

                  Oh I'm not surprised that they're important factors to you. But, what I find mind boggling is that you expect not to be judged accordingly after your countless diatribes about Muslims. It leads me to believe that it may be sheer arrogance as opposed to wickedness that is the core issue among most republicans.

                    My miss-write there, forgot the "not" and will correct that. Again, a flub for not proof reading.

                    As for "Muslims", they are neither a race nor an ethnic, and considering their spread around the planet they include nearly every one of such. But as usual, and this is typical of most liberals whom have mush for brains, you have confused opposition to an ideology(Islam) with opposition to those encompassed by it(Muslims). I doubt the following will register with your mindset, but for benefit of others reading here, it may help.

                    Before Cortes arrived, the Aztecs practiced a religion that focused on human sacrifice as a key ritual - cutting the heart out of a living victim upon the altar of their temples. Not all Native Americans in hat we now call Mexico were "Aztecs". There were several tribes conquered and dominated by the Aztecs and some of these allied with Cortes to overthrow the Aztecs and remove their religion/ideology from power. Most would agree that the Aztec religion proves a case that 'not all religions are equal' or should be protected by the first Amendment of the USA Constitution.

                    The Nazis - National Socialist German Workers Party/NSDAP was an ideology with philosophical roots in some German mystical beliefs, the Thule and Vril
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occultism_in_Nazism
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thule
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vril
                    Even though most think of Nazism as a political party, it was also a quasi-religion, however many find nothing wrong in being opposed to Nazism or Nazis. While this belief system and political party dominated German, WWII wasn't fought against the Germans for "racial" reason; hatred of Germans, but rather in opposition to Nazism. Oskar Schindler is a classic example of one compelled to become "a Nazi" in order to continue to do business with the German government of the time, but as we see from either the book or movie about him, he neither believed the Nazi ideology nor operated per it's principles and agenda, and tried to twart it where he could.
                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oskar_Schindler

                    In the case of Islam, we have a religion; ideology with deity attached, which dominates the political structure of many countries, having their "secular" law based upon Sharia Law. Islam also dominates the culture of those many "Islamic/Muslim" countries. Islam, which stands for 'submit to Sharia', does not support equal rights to all, especially of non-Islamic religions; places women in second-class status, endorses slavery, and has many other aspects contrary to modern social and political standards. It also proscribes death to any whom denounce and/or leave the religion. Hence there are many people in the world whom are "Muslim" buy duress rather than choice. We could say there are many Muslims whom are "Schindlers" within their societies.

                    In many ways Islam and Nazism shared similar tenants and ideology, so differ mostly in minor theological detail and deities. My position is to oppose the ideology and theology of Islam as much as I would that of Nazism. Now if Islam could find a way to strike and refute some of the text of it's dogma that is unacceptable to 21st century legal and cultural standards of equality and tolerance, I won't mind it so much. But so long as it is forced upon those within the Dar al-Islam, and so long as it battles against the Dar Al-Haram in agenda (per Koran) to convert the rest of the world to Islam, I'm going to have some issues and problems with accepting or tolerating what is just another flavor of Nazism.

                    If you bother to read the first few pages of posts in the following thread link you'll get more of the specifics on my position regards Islam.
                    Islam - Jihad - GWOT

                    BTW, it is arrogance and ignorance that is the core basis of beliefs and foolish socialist policies, along with elitism and racism that are foundation of most Liberals and their Democratic Party.

                        Actually, it's more ignorance. Ignorance and hate go hand in hand.

                          Here is the paradox, The great majority of conservatives and republicans find this manís behavior and his plans deplorable and will not defend him or his delusional views and plans.

                          However, when we see Antifa carry out well organized violence in cities around the world the left doesnít speak out against them, they blame capitalism for the behavior of these thugs.
                          When a pen actor pays two men to attack him so he can claim, falsely that he was attacked by Trump supporters, Maxine Waters blames Trump.
                          Sharpton, Booker and other liberal African Americans also blame institutional prejudice, but not the actions of the actor.
                          Dispite our best intentions, the system is dysfunctional that intelligence failure is guaranteed.

                            Violence has been ratcheting up on all sides during white supremacist rallies in recent months ó but "antifa" is not planning the rallies, and statistically poses a lesser danger.
