I do have a point - the CG found that the symbol was racist. All the people on this thread other than WDMSO are totally denying it has any racist intent.
And where are the apologies from the people in the media who immediately concluded it was racist, Paul? How come you never address that?You never asked about that. But let them apologize.

Just hand the reigns over to AOC, let her drive the democrat wagon right off the left-edge of the earth.
Who is AOC? 1 rep. with 1 vote. Didn't Pelosi say something like "who cares they have 4 votes" when talking about the squad.

Now your just making chit up.

Nobody ever denied it, we just didnít lose our collective minds and immediately jumped to racism when we saw it.

So you don't concede AOC is a major influence in the Democrat party right now?

How long does it take to acquire the ability to deny irrefutable truths, if they happen to be politically inconvenient?

Pelosi did say that. And then she flip flopped on impeachment, thanks largely to the squad. Pelosi had been saying all along that impeachment had to be bipartisan.

Correct, nobody ever denied it (though I have to admit it was the first I'd heard of it).

So why not ask the cadets what their intent was?

Really, go back and reread the whole thread and tell me people weren't claiming the symbol didn't have racist connotations and it was nothing more than an okay symbol or part of a game.

The symbol does not have racist connotations 99+% of the time yet whenever someone not with their Left Party Card does it they are immediately called out as racists, and suffer the onslaught or media and the Social Media defenders of Woke.

This is a bigger problem than anything.

And for the tiny handful that do want it to be a symbol of hate, theyíre getting a LOT of help from the useful idiots

I agree it doesn't have racist connotations 99+% of the time. This time it might have. It was presented upsides down which I believe is further indication it is racist and it had no connection to anything else that was going on - The video clip on the news I saw did not have cadets punching each other in the arm and I didn't see it live when I was watching the game. For those reasons, I don't think the academies where out of line in looking into it, asking questions and stating the cadets didn't have racist intentions.

There hasn't been any big uproar where people have seen the symbol and are calling people racist. It is as much if not more about the right complaining about it as anyone on the left actually doing it - red herring.

No one would ever accuse some 11 year old in Jim's town at the bus stop who flashed the sign and then punched someone in the arm of being racist.

the Sandman kid was 16 when he was called the next James Earl Ray in every tv station except for one.
True or false? the tv clips we all saw, failed to show that the kids were victims of racist taunts, not perpetrators. watch what you are fed by the media Paul. They obviously have an agenda. Again, how many examples do you need to admit that, because whatever the number is, I can post that many examples.

your side is un-hinged.

The circle game as itís called, is popular in high schools and colleges too. it requires the ok sign to be flashed upside down. but letís assume it means Heil Hitler.

your side is un-hinged.And what do you call evangelicals supporting a vile man or the right afraid to criticize a President who insults women, the military generals, dead war hero's ,steals $ from charities, I can go post how ever many posts you want to show the outright hypocrisy of the right.

Start a thread about sandman if you want - You bring up him and the Duke kids as much as you can. I suppose the right has apologized to Hillary for all the lies that were said about her - they obviously have an agenda. Did you ever see the stat that said people who get their news from Fox actually know less than people who don't watch the news.

this makes sense since I don't watch the news and your ilk always seem to know what's going on over there at Fox

The thread is about your sides willingness to go on national TV, and label anyone who disagrees with them, a racist. This is just the latest manifestation.

Hilary is innocent? he didn't lie to protect her predator husband, and lut-shame his victima on national TV? That's all made up?

Children, Paul. I'm talking about kids who did absolutely nothing wrong, but found themselves in yoru sides crosshairs. Deny it all you want. Because lberal=good, aways. A der der.

No ,when you call Seadogg ( who seldom posts)an idiot for expressing his opinion,it is not meant as an insult. You are the typical snowflake who just decided the rules only apply to one side. Or was that just another of your bad boy days?

It certainly was meant as an insult - I returned the venom he posted. I knew he would throw an insult and run away - and that is exactly what happened.

It is like with you, I don't take your rude, vile comments. What kind of person calls people on-line a POS, makes comments about people's wives and kids?

FWIW ,I would say it to your face.

Btw , Seadogg posted his opinion. None of which was directed at you personally. The insult was directed towards democrats. You chose to make an ad hominem attack because you take their mistakes personally. But keep complaining about the mean republicans while you mimic what you are crying about. P*ssy,you are the face of the left.🤡🤡🤡

Hmmm.. I thought name calling was a tactic of the left?

Oh that's right, you 'call it like you see it's... One might say, if they were to call it like they see it, that your posts on here reflect those of an angry, name calling middle-aged white guy. Perhaps you are the face of the right?
