Wrong, wrong, wrong. I am not saying al liberals are rioters, or that all liberals support riots (though not many pundits criticize the rioters, most justify it). Again, I ask a simple question, and instead of answering, you point out some of my many flaws.

Here is what I am doing. I am asking you, if liberals are more prone to riot, than conservatives. I'm not saying all liberals do it, I am not saying all liberals condone it. I am asking if politically-motivated rioting exists more commonly on the left than the right.

Yes or no?

I happily concede all of my shortcomings, you don't need to point them out, this is a yes or no answer. And if the answer is yes (which it obviously is), here is the real question - why?

Not remotely the same thing. Because 99% of the republicans in DC, and the conservative pundits you see on TV, call out the KKK for what they are.

Very, very few liberal politicians, and very few liberal talking heads, suggest that the rioters are wrong because even offensive conservatives have the right to speak.

Every single host on Foxnews despises the Klan. How many hosts at CNN tell the college rioters to shut up and let Milo speak?

Obviously true, but his point (which is also true) is that today, most Klansmen probably vote Republican. Which is actually against their cause in my opinion, but that's a separate issue for another time.

It's also a safe bet that most Islamic radicals vote democrat. Same with drug dealers, black panthers, and welfare cheats. So I'm not sure either party wants to be identified by the worst elements in their voting base.

My point is that Republicans don't excuse the behavior of racists in their midst. But these liberal rioters, when do they ever get criticized by liberal pundits or liberal politicians? When do they ever get called fascists by liberals on CNN or ABC or NBC?

Wrong, wrong, wrong. I am not saying al liberals are rioters, or that all liberals support riots sure, that is exactly what you do. Very rarely do you specify the sub set you are talking about. (though not many pundits criticize the rioters, most justify it). Again, I ask a simple question, and instead of answering, you point out some of my many flaws.

Here is what I am doing. I am asking you, if liberals are more prone to riot, than conservatives.No, I don't think so. I'm not saying all liberals do it, I am not saying all liberals condone it. I am asking if politically-motivated rioting exists more commonly on the left than the right.I would agree that there are more liberals in college than conserv. in college who "riot" but I think there are more people in those "riots" who have no political affiliation or identification than identify as liberal. When BLM rioted, those folks were angry that they felt they were treated differently from whites - their policital party (if they even had one) had nothing to do with it. In some of the riots, some of the people are anarchists, some are doing it bc of the mob mentality and some are doing bc they want to steal things.

Yes or no?

I happily concede all of my shortcomings, you don't need to point them out, this is a yes or no answer. And if the answer is yes (which it obviously is), here is the real question - why?
You're making a broad generalization by assigning something to them that I don't think is correct.

So you don't think liberals are more prone to political riots than conservatives. Thank you for providing a direct answer.

So you can point to as many conservative-led riots, as I can point to liberal-led riots? You really think so?

Can you name a single conservative-led political riot from the last 20 years? Because if I factor in the Trump election, what happens at every college when a conservative tries to speak, what happens every time white police officer shoots a black person, I can come up with many, many examples of liberal-led riots.

Bullsh*t.

It's the democrat machine that fuels the notion that institutional racism exists, and it's the democratic machine that perpetuates the horrible lie that white police officers are a problem.

You can only afford to be a liberal if your young and just starting out or poor and living on handouts. Once you start to take off, it is a luxury you can't afford. I am in favor in helping folks that legitimaly need it, I don't want people dying or living in the streets to other 3rd world countries signing up with the Russians or Chinese. It would be great to cut taxes for all of us. What could you do with an extra 5 or 10 k of your own hard earned money. I live in Mass. This is a list of taxes I have to pay.
Real estate tax
sales tax
federal Tax
social security tax
Auto Excise Tax
Mooring Tax
trash pick fee
dump fee
sports fees
school bus fee
medicare tax
unemployment tax
Equipment Tax
cell phone tax

What I could do with that extra money.

What you could do with that extra money.

What a world.

He's coming out swinging, that's for sure. He offered to pay for her DNA test to see how much Native American DNA she really has.

I think Warren has set her sights higher than the US Senate. Me think-um that Princess Spreading Bull wants to live in teepee of Great White Chief. Ugh.

I am very happy this post got brought back to life.

When I was in college, I was a registered Democrat. It made perfect sense to me, to eliminate poverty by taking just a little bit more from the fabulously wealthy, who could not possibly miss a few pennies here and there. I really believed (because it's all I was taught in college, and all I saw on TV) that conservatives were happy to let poor people starve to death, so that millionaires could become billionaires. I heard that 100 times a day, and it was never, ever challenged. And I was a math major, not a sociology major, and I still got indoctrinated.

It was in my mid 20s when I realized how moronic all of that is. But college kids don't know any better, so it's very effective at creating liberals. And 99% of America doesn't watch Foxnews, so most people only hear Hilary say that people like me are deplorable, most people never hear the other point of view, they never get to see any challenges to liberalism. Because an honest presentation of what conservatism is, only happens on one network. On every other network, conservatives are described in awful language.
Local kid is scheduled to graduate from UMass Amherst in May. 25 year old Marine Corps veteran did tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He cannot wait to get out. Is surrounded by anti-American teaching. His very words. It is nothing more than a factory to indoctrinate the American youth into becoming left leaning Democratic socialists! Just before his Thanksgiving break hid class was given a writing assignment that was to confess how as a white person, what it was like to grow up with such entitlements...... Are you kidding me? Apologizing for who he is? Another reason my alma mater will never get a dime from me again

It's idiotic to presume that a white kid is more privileged than a black kid. Oprah Winfrey's kid has fewer advantages than a poor white kid, from a broken family?

Your party is embracing the exact opposite, and I mean the absolute exact opposite, of what Martin Luther King hoped for. Your side has created a political point of view, where all that matters, are the superficial differences between us. Your side is doing that, because their ideas are so idiotic, they can only win by playing identity politics. So instead of debating why Senator Tom Cotton is wrong on a given issue, liberals talk about why he is evil. Much easier to demonize him, than to attempt to make him wrong.

Says 1 conservative marine ... does being a marine give him the credentials to to decide whats Anti American teaching? but yet the Local kid is scheduled to graduate from UMass Amherst?
couldn't have been that much to bear

It's idiotic to presume that a white kid is more privileged than a black kid.

not all but most... and failing to see the world as it is rather then how you wish it was seems to be a conservative Trait

And i guess Trumps latest Pocahontas comment is to indoctrinate his base of support for his unprofessional behavior that they seem to love

and totally disrespects the office but people are more upset about a writing assignment

There's a lot of BS taking place on the College campuses now-a-days. Both my kids have told me some of the stupid chit they've seen at their respective schools.

The reason so many black kids are disadvantaged, is because 70% of them are born without a dad. That has absolutely nothing to do with skin color, and absolutely everything to do with the culture that people tend to embrace, and the decisions they choose to make. It's not "white" privilege. It's "stable family" privilege. Liberals never stop mocking traditional family values, and then they act surprised when the lack of family values has catastrophic societal effects.

White kids from broken, chaotic families tend to struggle. Black kids from stable homes, with two parents of opposite sex who are committed to the family, tend to do just fine. It's not about race. It's about the family, or lack thereof.

The late great liberal senator from NY, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, predicted 45 years ago that liberalism would be the end of the black nuclear family, and that it would be a disaster for blacks. He was excoriated for saying it. And he was 100% correct.

"And i guess Trumps latest Pocahontas comment is to indoctrinate his base of support for his unprofessional behavior that they seem to love"

It was a classless thing for him to do, in that setting.

Think on this, Nebe. And good luck making it wrong...

For the most part, black kids don't struggle because of the color of their skin. They struggle, because 70% of them, don't have a dad. Every study ever done, has shown that kids do much better with two parents in the home.

Liberals hate that truth, they deny that truth, and they mock that truth. That's liberalism. Instead of modifying your agenda to fit the facts, it's easier to just deny all the facts that don't fit your agenda. Conservatives do it too, but not to this degree, and not leading to these kinds of disastrous results.
