Default Re: Building these Arab prayer sites at ground zero

I couldn't believe my ears when I heard Newt Gingrich assert the other day that we shouldn't "allow" the mosque to be built as long as Saudi Arabia doesn't allow churches to be built.

THIS IS AMERICA. Why in the fluckety **** would anyone compare us on a sociological/constitutional level with a scumbag country like that is so beyond me....I don't even...

****ing children running this country.

hold up. You are either not paying attention to the situation or blinded by your partisan politics (IK IK you're an independent ).

The right trying to hold all muslims accountable (or at the very least guilty by religious association) for 9/11 isnt generalizing? People like starface saying america doesnt want you here (depsite the fact that most muslims in the US are either citizens who converted, natural born citizens, or legal residents) isnt generalizing? WHy dont you take a look at some of the sheer ignorance and hate-baiting coming out of the mouths of the talking heads on the right/teaparty before you talk about only poodle generalizing. lets start here.



and yes, if you dont see how 9/11 has been used to gain political advantage or quiet critics consistently, you arent paying attention.

My bad. I didn't realize starface was posting in this thread.

Starface on the "right"=Smokee (Poodle) on the "left"

That's what I'm getting at.

Poodle has admitting to generalizing because he's too much of a dumbass to actually hold a decent conversation without assuming you're a redneck, hard-core christian, gay bashing republican.

You practically missed my point. Both "sides" (if you want to play that game) generalize a shitload. Basically Poodle was called the kettle black.

not only do they not have it...they aren't even trying to raise the money as of rite now.

VERY isolated examples, and hillary supporters were based a lot on women's rights or female empowerment. either way that doesn't come anywhere near the obvious right wing voter base ignorance shown time and again generalizing against minorities, gays, etc.

While we are on the topic of generalizations of political parties, I read today that almost 20% of americans think Obama is a Muslim. That actually scares the shit out of me, does that mean that basically half of all republicans think Obama is muslim? I doubt very many dems/people who voted for him think he is a muslim.

oh give me a break, a lot of people here hve probably read our back and forths, and your expectation i should care about each and every persons individual viewpoint specifically, when talking about the macro, or rather massive groups like Republicans and Democrats in general is just dumb and impractical. how hard is it for you to figure out you couldn't even talk about Democrats and Republicans in that context if your expectation is to be politically correct to each individual Republicans(or Democrats) views in that group. its just retarded you can't see that.

It just means there's a lot of idiots. I saw a fb status about this and he said, "I don't like the way this country is going."

Like that's any indication this country is going down the shitter.
