the comments on the “sweden is going to give all its citizens $33,000 per year” post is like vintage liberalism
I can explain how your understanding of Islam has been distorted by the media. How it’s been twisted and manipulated to make you afraid, so you go down quietly when the government passes measures like the Patriot Act, and the NDAA.
I can also explain how you’re wrong with one simple image:
I can also explain how Adolf Hitler was a Christian, and that the Nazis won their elections by promoting themselves as ”Positive Christians.” The Ku Klux Klan are also nothing but Christians, as was the US government when it committed genocide on the Native Americans. And let’s not forget how Central America was eviscerated by Catholics, and almost wiped out entirely.
This isn’t about who can throw more dirt on who, because one side would clearly win. There are atrocities committed by all organized religions… there are even radicalized Buddhists, believe it or not.
This is about thinking for yourself, and not letting a talking head decide what you need to believe. You have incontrovertible facts in front of your face, now. I hope you take a second and open your eyes, my friend.
How are people not absolutely horrified and outraged by Michael Brown’s death and what is going on in Ferguson? How are people insisting that Brown robbed a store when the police chief is admitting that he had nothing to do with it? How are people seeing these videos of police threatening and tear gassing the media and shooting peaceful protestors with rubber bullets and still issuing apologetics for the officers pointing military weapons at civilians? How are people generalizing the protestors as looting thugs when they have been actively discouraging this behavior? How dare you choose ignorance and apathy?
so libertarians need gun rights to fight back against the government.. but then complain when bottles are thrown at police? seriously? are you guys really anti-government or do you just not want to pay taxes
What fucking libertarians are you talking to? Seriously, even Rand Paul hates the cops acting like soldiers. This enemy in your head?
there it is
Race is complicated, but one thing remains true: An arrest transcends skin color.
but the police are just trying to do their job! and restore order! by operating in the same heavyhanded way that caused the disorder in the first place!
american horror story: the police
The longest running show.
