Anything from Trump barring CNN, the BBC, The Guardian, etc, from press briefings to Tweeting that the broadcasting licences of new outlets he doesn't like because they, amongst others like the NYT, are 'the enemy of the American people' to not issuing passports to Americans of Hispanic backgrounds so they can't travel to calling for the repeal of the 14th Amendent not ring any bells?

Your answer didn't show up because your stupidity got downvoted into oblivion, I had to search for it. Those press outlets can ALL still write all the negative stories they want about the president and publish those stories to THE ENTIRE american public. There is no censoring of their stories, there is nobody shutting down their offices or confiscating their printing equipment. If you think the president tweeting mean things at them is infringing on the liberty of the press to say whatever the f**k they feel like, you are completely bonkers. Freedom of the press doesn't give them unlimited access to the government's workings. It merely gives them the freedom to write whatever they like about it.

bit of an older article, but it explains how for more than A CENTURY, there was no such thing as white house press briefing. Do I maybe need to dumb this down more for you?
And the bit about passports.. I'm sure you just FORGOT to mention that those passports had been obtained through fraud. Surely you weren't intentionally being dishonest. Or do you think that fraudulent passports should be continued? I'm sure what's left of Al-Queda would love it if you could pass legislation. Are you done making any more ignorant remarks or do I have to show you up for the retard you are even more?

Feel like it's gotten nowhere.. libs always love to bring up the guilty pleas and indictments but always fail to mention that none of the charges involve the trump campaign. Be nice when the charade is over. The left has totally blown its credibility about just about everything since the election- you've even weaponized sexual assault allegations now. Pretty despicable tbh. Just more unsubstantiated allegations on top of heaps of other unsubstantiated allegations.. all designed to ruin people in the court of public opinion. Where's the evidence for ANY of the things the left has claimed in the last two years? Its utterly rediculous. The most that you've come up with that's actually fact is russian trolls trying to divide public opinion. If you lost the election because of internet trolls your party has some serious issues to begin with.

"none of the charges involve the trump campaign."

Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, just signed a full cooperation plea deal with the FBI. He was also present at the 2016 Trump Tower meeting so he will be telling them what was discussed there.

Papadopoulos was Trump's foreign policy advisor, but he has nothing to do with Trump, right?

Flynn was Trump's national security advisor, but he has nothing to do with Trump, right?

PS. badmouthing the press is different than passing legislation that limits them. also different than censoring the press. The president has done neither. They are as free to write any story they like, same as they've always been. There was/is no rule saying the president has to roll over while the press tries to vilify him.

It cracks me up when people call Trump an authoritarian. If he's an authoritarian, he's a pretty laxed one. Maybe these people should travel the world or at least read news articles about countries with actual authoritarians and see how dissent is handled. Seriously, the left makes such extreme claims or loose definitions that the words they use lose their meaning. Words like dictator, rights, extremism, reproductive rights, equality, immigrant, Nazi, racist, gender, sex, fascism, American, citizen. If the left's ideas were so popular, you wouldn't have to redefine words or use euphemisms like "reproductive rights" to mean leagalized abortion. There is nothing reproductive about ending a life.

Who calls segregation multiculturalism? I've never heard anyone say that.
reply
2 ups, 2 replies
Nobody. I'm calling multiculturalism segregation. It's just a way to separate people. You can't really be friends with white people, because then you are betraying "the black community". You can't hang with a black guy because then you are betraying your latino heritage. You can't eat a taco because that is cultural appropriation. It's separate but equal all over again.

America was envisioned as a melting pot of ideas and cultures. Keep the good and get rid of the bad. Black culture has given us BBQ (Yum!) and Gansta Rap (Barf!). White culture has given us the sandwich and Justin Bieber. Latino culture has given us Salma Hayek and...wait where was I? All cultures are not equal. American culture is significantly, measurably better. Because we are the best, and sometimes the worst, of all other cultures.

Religious liberty is not a euphemism for anything. Obama/Holder sued The Little Sisters of the Poor - a group of Nuns - saying they aren't religious because they do charity work. Where was the outcry from liberals? The pilgrims came to this country primarily for religious liberty.

It really makes me angry when liberals talk about Trump's "tyrrany". Did he try to put journalists in jail for disagreeing with him? Did he imprison innocent people to further his politics? Did he spy on innocent people? Did he leak the names of innocent people to make them seem guilty of something? Did he let criminals off for politics? Did he have swat teams invade the homes of political enemies in the dead of night? Did he persecute a war hero as payback for telling the truth? Because liberals, especially Obama and Clinton, did all of these.

You are watching tyranny grow in front of your eyes. But it isn't Trump's tweets. It is the liberal machine destroying lives for the simple sin of disagreeing.

reply

Multiculturalism is about welcoming people from different cultures and backgrounds. It's not about keeping people segregated and apart. It's about being exposed to different cultures.

I might (*might*) agree that not all cultures are equal, but they all have something to offer this country.

Religious liberty is often used as a cover for discrimination, just like "states' rights" was used in times past as a dog whistle for segregation and slavery.

If Obama said the LSOTP was not a religious group, I would disagree with him.

"The pilgrims came to this country primarily for religious liberty."

...for themselves. After they got here, they quickly went to work trying to convert the Indians to Christianity. And look at the early colonies. Most of them were anything but bastions of religious freedom.

https://www.loc.gov/exhibits/religion/rel01-2.html

A quote from that link:

"Those who defied the Puritans by persistently returning to their jurisdictions risked capital punishment, a penalty imposed on four Quakers between 1659 and 1661...Beginning in 1659 Virginia enacted anti-Quaker laws, including the death penalty for refractory Quakers."

"It really makes me angry when liberals talk about Trump's "tyrrany". Did he try to put journalists in jail for disagreeing with him? Did he imprison innocent people to further his politics? Did he spy on innocent people? Did he leak the names of innocent people to make them seem guilty of something? Did he let criminals off for politics? Did he have swat teams invade the homes of political enemies in the dead of night? Did he persecute a war hero as payback for telling the truth? Because liberals, especially Obama and Clinton, did all of these."

He did two of those things, actually. He slammed John McCain for getting caught as a POW, and he pardoned Joe Arpaio (a convicted criminal) for purely political reasons.

I actually upvoted your comment. You are right about many of the pilgrims. They weren't all like that too. People are people. Thomas Jefferson tried to use the heavy hand of government even after he fought for a limited government.
Unfairly slamming McCain? Who cares about that? How many times did McCain slam Trump unfairly? As for Arpaio, he was convicted largely for political reasons. I'm talking about letting hardcore criminals - like the black panthers, who showed up with weapons to intimidate white voters. Yes, hardcore racists too.

My point is very simple, and you are skirting it. The tyranny that liberals ascribe to Trump for SAYING things they don't like is imaginary. The President has free speech like anybody else. The REAL tyranny is right before your eyes and it is coming from the left. You and your kids will likely know the horror of standing in bread lines like in Venezuela, or having your freedom doled out according to a "social rating" (China). You will probably see the abortion of children born two or three years earlier, forced abortions of "undesirables", and mass sterilization. All of these things are being proposed by the far left RIGHT NOW.

Politics is no longer a game where you choose a team and root them on. When George Bush bailed out Wall Street, I was screaming and throwing things at the TV. (Those screens are really tough!) You need to be outraged when liberals do things wrong, not just when Republicans do. Multiculturalism isn't about welcoming other cultures. That's what the American melting pot does. Multiculturalism prevents us from having a single American culture; it divides us into groups that can be more easily ruled over.

Thank you. And I went back and upvoted all of your comments in our conversation, because you have been civil and not rude.

"All of these things are being proposed by the far left RIGHT NOW."

The key phrase is "far left". I don't worry about those things happening anytime soon in this country, because they are fringe ideas supported by fringe people, not mainstream Americans.

multiculturalism is essentially the opposite of integration, so it's not a leap. When you demonize the idea of everyone in a country adopting one culture, even if it's a blend of many(ie melting pot), you are advocating for cliques to segregate themselves.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
People can integrate into a society while still holding on to their own traditions and culture. Multiculturalism is not the opposite of integration.
reply
2 ups, 3 replies
that totally explains why even after segregation ended, people in the US still tend to live near those that share their culture. Chinatowns, black neighborhoods, latino neighborhoods, white neighborhoods, etc.. that's all 100% integrated, right? If people don't share a common culture, they do NOT integrate. The whole point of the old idea of the melting pot was that you do keep some traditions, you even introduce them into the overall "american culture". Now that's cultural appropriation, and apparently bad. Only chinese people can enjoy chinese culture. Only latinos can enjoy latino culture. Only black americans can enjoy their culture. If you try to adopt the typical "american" picket fence culture, you're suddenly a race traitor. Stupid AF. You people cause the division and you don't even realize it.

I would agree with the first part, but not the second part. Ethnic neighborhoods go back to the 1800s, probably even earlier. When people from China, Ireland, Italy, Germany, etc came over here, they formed ethnic neighborhoods precisely because they were being mistreated and not welcomed into American society.
1 up
Ethnic neighborhoods have been around since before we were a country like you say. There was discrimination against Italians, Irish, Chinese, etc. Ethnic neighborhoods are kept alive largely due to the flow of legal immigrants into this country. It is a good thing, almost like a halfway house for integration, where immigrants can feel comfortable while building a better life. But what we are seeing today is the balkanization of cultures, especially latin immigrants and black Americans. They have largely been sold on the idea that to embrace America and its culture is betraying theirs. That they have to keep themselves separate but equal. That is much different from neighborhoods celebrating people's original cultures while adding to America's culture.
1 up
yes but over time they integrated and now there's really not much distinction between white neighborhoods; at least not in any of the places I've seen. The irish still have some irish traditions, the germans theirs, but they live next door to each other and don't make a fuss about it. They are americans before they are irish. The big distinctions now are more regional or political than point of origin related - southern vs. northern, eastern vs. western, rural vs. urban, republican vs. democrat etc. Why hasn't this happened with everybody? Or is it preferable to keep people living in seperate mini-communities that distrust each other in order to preserve the home culture?
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
Living in ethnic neighborhoods doesn't mean that people don't integrate. You could say they aren't "fully" integrating, and I would probably agree with you. But they can still integrate. Is it only considered integration if people live in completely diverse neighborhoods? "Your neighborhood has three Chinese people more than that other neighborhood. You're not integrating enough!"

And this whole business about "you people" is just dumb. You're trying to lump me in with people whose views I may not even share.
1 up
Integration ideally would be when people stop seeing themselves as chinese or african american or latino, and just as Americans. That was the whole point originally. The ethnic neighborhoods are caused because that isn't happening. Someone has convinced minorities(coughdemocratscough) that it's better to seperate themselves into cliques based on where they came from rather than become full Americans, focused on where they are now.

Ethnic neighborhoods still exist, and I don't really see a problem with it. San Francisco and New York have Chinatown. San Jose has Japantown and Little Cambodia. Los Angeles has Koreatown and Thaitown. Chicago has Koreatown and Greektown. Miami has Little Havana. These people are all Americans but they hold on to their own culture, too. That's what makes it a melting pot.

Yeah having the liberty practice religion actually equals religious liberty whereas having the liberty to abort does not equal reproduction. Now if you lived in a country where it was illegal to have kids, then you could say you were fighting for reproductive rights
reply

Reproductive rights includes the right for a woman to decide whether or not she continues a pregnancy or not. When a woman becomes pregnant, she doesn't give up control of her body and the decisions that affect it.

And yes, religious liberty exists. But when people want to discriminate against LGBT people and treat them unfairly and then hide behind religious freedom, that is cowardly.

What if someone asked you to bake them a white supremacist cake? Fasces and swastikas, the whole shebang. Maybe a happy birthday hitler cake. Would you feel like you should do it despite the fact that you believe everything it stands for is wrong? I'd tell them to shove off. I'm not equating LGBT to hitler or white supremacy - I am simply illustrating the point that if you strongly believe against something it is wrong to be forced to create something celebrating it.

I don't think businesses should be forced to serve people they don't want to. But that doesn't change the fact that many people want to discriminate against LGBT people but are too cowardly to just come out and say it, so they hide behind this facade of religious freedom. It's like when people supported segregation and treating black people unfairly, and hid behind the facade of "states' rights" and "traditional values".

but if the root of that supposed bigotry is based in religion, that is them exercising their religious freedom, is it not? last I checked the baker in CO. said he'd have baked them any type of cake they wanted with the exception of that one. He wasn't unwilling to serve them because they were gay, he was unwilling to make what he saw as a religious cake for something he thought violated his faith. States' rights is also responsible for propelling gay marriage into law and is currently spreading legal marijuana across the country. Maybe it has defended some horrid things in the past, but it's also been a major means for good movements to gain traction as well. Things aren't that black and white.

It's bigotry, not "supposed bigotry". And it may be them practicing their religion, but not necessarily. No one has ever shown me a verse in the Bible where it tells Christians to not do business with gay people or sell them wedding cakes.

"He wasn't unwilling to serve them because they were gay..."

That's what it ultimately boils down to.

I get what you're saying about how states' rights does have some positive effects as well.

States' rights also being the only thing keeping the federal government from coming down hard on several blue states atm. :) Be thankful people fought for the right of states to govern themselves in the past, or republican presidents and congress would have a much bigger effect on your life than you might like. It goes both ways.
