Just found one in the wild. I just can't with these people. This was in response to a response to a gay Republican using Malcolm X's quotes about liberals as proof that the left is the real oppressor of black people.



That's quite a lot of words to say "Someone pointed out I was being racist and my feelings got hurt."

Also lol that the Civil Rights Movement was ok, but BLM is just going to far. I've seen so many people on social media wishing for the good 'ol days of the Civil Rights Movement and 2nd wave feminism. Back then, they weren't like these mouthy/pushy/criminal BLM and 3rd wave people. Nosiree, back in the 60s, people protested peacefully for actual injustice, and didn't inconvenience me at all because I wasn't born.

I wish I'd taken a screenshot, because I found someone on FB the other day arguing that 2nd wave feminism was fine and dandy, but 3rd wave feminism was equal to ISIS. Literally ISIS.

That thread continues for 5 more tweets, all of which are extremely cursed. My favorites include "Develop a Vaccine by the End of 2020" (which you'll note is still his first term and also 2 loving months from now) and "Stop Endless Wars & Bring Troops Home" followed directly by "Maintain & Expand our Unrivaled Military Strength."

Yeah, I'm in Delaware right now, and the number of pro-Trump billboards is absolutely crazy. It's not because the state is going red, but because they're desperate to get anyone here to vote against Biden. It's not going to work here any more than it will in California.

(It doesn't help that all of the billboards are of Trump hugging a flag and making a weird face, for some reason.)

She blocked me when I asked if she's taken too many head injuries.

I swear to god, everyone who yaps about voter fraud and filming the vote counting needs to spend at least one presidential election working at a polling place. It's a room full of people making small talk while opening envelopes and looking up names on spreadsheets as quickly as possible. No one's thinking about who voted for who, you're thinking that you're really sick of scanning a list of Smiths and wish you could move to the W-Z names because those sound more interesting.

If you stopped to check every single mail-in to see who they voted for before chucking it through the scanner, we'd be announcing a winner sometime next June.

9/10 times, the second someone mentions cultural appropriation online, you know you're in for a hot take. A white woman on my FB feed tried to argue the other day that white people wearing head coverings in bed to protect their hair at night was cultural appropriation. Completely ignoring POC people who were telling her she had no idea what she was talking about, and wearing sleep caps while sleeping =/= appropriating black culture. One black lady pointed out that she was being a little racist, assuming that all black people had the same type of hair, and ofc was immediately dogpiled on by a ton of white people.

And then the same white people go to a New Age shop and spend $150 on "Indian crystals" that are totally used by Navajo medicine men to erase evil spirits in your gallbladder or whatever.

Diversity as a positive thing in advertising has been around for decades at this point, and normalized enough that even racists just roll their eyes at 'political correctness' and move on if they see a black family representing all families in a major ad campaign. If a product or company has never used a person of color in an ad before, they'll get some poo poo for it, but right now bigots are more inclined to get huffy about Latino, Muslim, Gay, and interracial families. The last ad melt-down I remember was Coca cola doing some national diversity pablum with the Spangled Banner where one line was sung in Spanish.

I think I remember that, was it a Super Bowl commercial? People melted down because they got "political."

I was so confused when when people get mad at that Cheerios commercial, and then I remembered that ~50 years ago, interracial relationships were still illegal (and punishable) in large portions of the US. I'm not saying boomers are more racist than other age groups...but they still remember a time when being openly racist was commendable in most social circles.

I think I mentioned it in another thread, but driving through backcountry CA I got to listen to a radio host giving a sermon on how Jesus wasn't a peace-loving pansy like liberals would have you believe. He was a man's man who rolled up his sleeves and put the fear of god into people.

So yes, they 100% believe that the sermon on the mount has been twisted by the liberal agenda.

Furthermore, the needle's eye refers to the gate in Jerusalem that...

Comparing ADHD and autism to major depressive disorder is comparing non-mood disorders disorders with mood disorders. It's just not going to line up. As someone mentioned, mood disorders by definition impact your quality of life, whereas other behavioral disorders don't necessarily. If you like your life with OCD/ADHD/etc, that's awesome. But it's not going to be the same for 99% of people who have major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, or other mood disorders.

Yes, banning child marriage is a pedophile plot (in case you don't get it: the P in "LGBTP" stands for pedophilia and is attempt to bring back the age-old slander against the LGBT community that they support pedophilia )

That's even more bonkers. I guess child marriage could refer to both boys and girls getting married off, in which case it wouldn't be pedophile...but I know in my heart that they're referring to adult men having child brides, and don't consider that pedophile because it's only pedophile OUTSIDE of marriage.

Just typing that makes me want to heave.

It's weird because where I grew up in the Philly burbs, my Catholic education and the Catholics I knew were all left of the dial politically speaking. Then I realized if they weren't that, American Catholics are all weirdo trad caths who should really just pull a mike pence and convert to being evangelicals.

For some reason all of the practicing Catholics I know are also from eastern PA (a good mix of Main Line and Pennsyltucky) and they're all pretty leftist. The older generation is really against abortion, though, and will vote based on that alone.

there wolf posted:

Conservatives adopted anti-abortion policies to break the liberal stronghold in American Catholicism. It's been a supply line for lovely Evangelical politics ever since, and the church leaders in the US have no interest in stopping it.

There was a fascinating article that I read a while back that of loving course I can't find now. I'm probably forgetting a lot of the nuance, but it basically said that once the Civil Rights Movement really got going and it was no longer cool to be openly racist and segregationist, conservatives needed something else to rally their troops. So they came up with the issue of abortion.

That's the beauty of it, the mark of the beast is so vague that it can mean anything.

It's almost like Revelation is a metaphorical and allegorical text or something!

The best one I've seen is that the element Carbon has 6 protons, 6 electrons, and 6 neutrons, therefore Carbon = 666. By breathing in carbon dioxide, you're breathing in Satan, so masks are the sign of the beast.

These are the same people ten years ago who were saying that Obama was the antichrist because O is the 15th letter of the alphabet, and if you add the numbers of these three Revelation verses, they equal 15. Also, if you add the number of chalices to the number of trumpets, and divide by the number of plagues in Exodus...

Biblical numerology is a crazy rabbit hole.

Was there some popular parenting book boomer parents got this poo poo from? While not quite as elaborate or bean-oriented, my dad liked to do this sort of thing too. Questions that should have taken less than 5 minutes ending up being multi-hour lessons on first principles.

Surprisingly I do not look back fondly on these experiences, and the lessons I learned were probably not the ones intended.

Socratic Method, but understanding it poorly.

It pairs perfectly with "What?? You don't know how to use this/pronounce this word/figure out this thing it would take me 5 seconds to teach you? I'm going to keep repeating this in an astounded tone without helping you."

In case anyone was wondering the context of that racist tweet, this is the beginning of the ramblings:

Looks like the woman he was replying to changed her account name, but 5 seconds of google stalking reveals that she's a pretty liberal. I'd like to think that it was a sarcastic conversation, but he seems like an asshat no matter what.

This is not specifically about Anti Semetic Bean Dad, but can also be related to his case.

It is amazing to me that so much of this twitter/social media etc. drama could be avoided if the main characters just said "Whoops, I said something stupid/wrong/offensive. I understand why you are mad at me, and I'm sorry I did that. I'll try not to do it in the future."

I mean it wouldn't absolve them of their crimes, depending on how egregious the twitter crime was, but it would go a long way. It would also show that you are a mature adult prepared to admit wrongdoing and atone for it.

Instead these self important fuckknobs double down and keep digging a hole for themselves, and end up showing themselves to be worse people than the initial incident implied.

How hard is it for these people to just apologize sincerely? I mean, if you didn't intend the offence, (and lets be very generous and say that you didn't know it would be offensive), at the very least you know you made someone else feel bad. So say sorry like a grown up and don't do it again.

While I agree with what others have said, Twitter also doesn't reward assholes for apologizing. At most, you'll get a bunch of replies telling you that it's too little too late, or that you're not sincere. Or people retweeting you to make fun of the fact that you apologized.

If assholes are going to be criticized no matter what they do, most of them will choose to double down.
