Stop posting when you're all emotionally involved. Your poor spelling reflects poorly on both you and your arguments.

If you want to call me out for being racist, how about use a examples of when I claim that us black people are better than the rest, all other races should suffer and die, and we need to remove all whites from power as they use laws to keep our people down.



Also, are you more concerned with the 5/14th potential violations because the suspect might be able to get away with a crime on a technicality (good thing they caught him on tape and have plenty of evidence against him out of questioning) or because you think it might be a bad precedent that FBI can toss ****** you up and start questioning you without a lawyer?

and why do you think this is more important than citizens being forced out of homes and being accused of harboring terrorists without due process of the law?
Go re-read my posts. I told you "Good find" and conceded. The only thing worse than a sore loser is an insufferable "winner".

As for the racism stuff, I brought it up because you said some dog whistle racism stuff involving Tsarnaev running for President. Go look up dog whistle racism and Lee Atwater's Southern Strategy. Words matter. Context matters.

I'm not emotionally involved. My poor spelling reflects on nothing but my inability to edit my posts, my public education, the speed in which I'm posting, and the lack of care.

Your shitty arguments, strawmen, diversions, claims of racism, and other off-the-subject tactics to avoid actually getting yourself in a debate/discussion/argument and avoiding all my questions reflects poorly on you.

What's the context of Barack Obama saying that he "isn't the young Muslim Marxist" he used to be? What is the genesis of the joke?

People have called him a Muslim and a Socialist, so he was playing into it.

The Genesis of the joke is that Collins > Gabriel.


**** off dude, seriously.

I've participated back and forth, and the only time I've criticized you was when you were using ad hominem attacks. I'm more than willing to accept that I was using strawmen and diversions if you had proof; however, I think you're projecting.

Bigotry: stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own


I get really tired of people throwing around "racist," when really they are speaking of "bigotry."
Wait, wait, wait. I just got this pointed out to me by someone.

Are people seriously claiming now "I'm a bigot, not a racist! There's a HUGE difference!"?

Seriously, the Birther movement has nothing to do with Obama's creed, beliefs, or opinions, and everything to do with the color of his skin. Why? Name one other president, ever, that has had to deal with anything like the birther movement. Please, I'd love to hear any other examples. I'm completely unaware of any in recent history, but I would be fascinated to hear of something I'm not aware of on this topic.

You can dance around claiming "B..b..b..but I'm bigoted, not racist!" all you want, it's...pathetic.

P.S. Pop quiz, if you punch, or attack, or kick, or mug someone because he's white, isn't that racism? Suddenly, a few posters here have made some radical changes in stances from previous topics they've posted in.

Maybe it's because no other president's place of birth was questioned?

Annnd the whole reasoning behind his place of birth being questioned is, if you actually look at the birther's idiocy, because of his race - you have some prominent members of the birther movement referring to him as a '------' FFS, pardon my language.

There are newspaper articles on President Obama's birth from the 60s FFS. People are accusing him of going back in time and at the exclusion of any sane logic to even remotely try to seriously imply his place of birth was ever in any serious contention.

Wait, what? How does pointing out the incorrect use of a word mean I'm a birther?
