Perhaps because you don't see anything wrong with a possible Trump and Russia money laundering scheme? That's impossible you say? Is it any more ridiculous than your "critique" of the Google doodle and liberals? :wink:

that, or the linguine disagreed with him. Still, your analogy is valid. Folks who expound on what 'Liberals' think, or what 'Conservatives' think, as if ideology is that rigid or confining. The Communist example is one that you both state correctly and are charitable to the extent that one gets ★■◆● up, along with Socialism. My more Progressive friends use 'Corporatism' or 'Corporatist' as a bludgeon in similarly goofy fashion.


I guess, and you seem to infer this part, that I've grown so used to NightShade/ThunderBunny's rants as to long ago cease viewing them as anything past fodder for mockery. Still sometimes, when the Sour Diesel kicks in and I have a box of TastyKake Krimpits nearby, it's good for a cheap chuckle or two. :lol: :lol: :lol: Your mileage may vary.

Do you walk around during the day like this? I've read the bible, the communist manifesto, atlas shrugged, mein kampf, all sorts of things (and you should). And I didn't end up at your version. Are you pushing a point to be a dick or are you being serious? I don't even understand what you are saying. Like what the ★■◆● is the point?

more like 'bigotted' to my mind, and NS reasoning is transparent. Identity politics isolates a single group for emphasis this CHILD'S DRAWING does just the opposite. The EXACT opposite. No, NS, you are just a hateful, very small person.

Why not? When I was 15 (the girl's age in this contest), I did some very nice and professional looking artwork of my own, mostly pencil drawings and acrylic paintings.

https://www.cnet.com/news/google-doodle ... diversity/

Heck, an 11 year old drew this one in 2014.

https://www.cnet.com/news/google-reward ... holarship/

A 12th grader created this one in 2013.

NS, why do you fear a peace and diversity art project that come from the mind of 15 year old girl? I say, more power to her. That's not something to fear, it's something that should be celebrated and encouraged.

I was depicting what "progressives" really think of "peace and diversity." I don't "fear" it- just pointing out hypocrisy.

Jews and Christians are to be mocked and feared according to progressives.

ok, so the picture, clearly NOT mocking anyone or anything represents what liberals think, but on the other hand, liberals and progressives mock the poor little Christians and Jews, yet nothing in the picture suggests that for a moment. You realize you can't have it both ways, and I return to the core issue, YOUR MENTAL HEALTH. You are obsessing over a kid's art project. Get a grip, get some help.

No. What you were actually doing was crapping on a 15 year old's drawing and hoped you wouldn't get caught. You haven't one clue about what any progressive thinks because you're stuck in a bubble and refuse to come out of it.

Did you expect anyone to take you seriously about this, even one iota?

I have to wonder something. If you saw her face, if she knew this is what you thought of her drawing... do you think you could live with yourself after she started crying? And then what would you do when you had to explain yourself to her dad? Would you tell him "That's what progressives think"? Do you still think you'd be any kind of a man after you've realized you've just shattered a kid's world?

Make no mistake. You've taken an innocent kid's drawing and perverted it for your own cause.

this is the logical end of where sick obsessions go.....for a few years, I've pointed out the sheer lunacy of someone who is completely convinced of their bogus 'facts' expounding on 'Progressives' when they have no contact with or clue about them. Now, NS is attacking childrens drawings and making up the inferences drawn upon same. I'll be willing to bet that some haters and idiots on Breitbart or some other knuckle dragging fanboi site are all agog over this artwork.

This reminds me slightly of the "coexist" bumper stickers that irk me. I don't have an issue with the idea of getting along with those around me, including those that hold different beliefs. I do have an issue with any overtones that I should validate other beliefs with which I disagree. What irks me (in the bumper sticker) is the implicit marginalization of differences that are real. Similarly, I hear an implicit hypocrisy - one that says "if only you all believed that your differences are inconsequential (as I do) we could all get along." As far as I'm concerned the "just be inclusive" message is borne from ignorance, and it's own subtle form of hypocrisy.

How about tolerating other people's beliefs? In order to coexist, you at least need to tolerate the fact that other people have differing beliefs from your own. Humans do not have a homogeneous belief system around the world, or even within our own country. However, if you're of the opinion that IF people don't change their belief system to suit your belief system, or I'm guessing in this particular thread, lifestyle or perhaps even race, are they unworthy of your consideration or even respect?

OMG….does anybody know how to read.

I do believe the man just said he has no problem with other people’s beliefs, but doesn’t want to have to validate them.

Or perhaps you believe validate and tolerate mean the same thing.

And that last question...I mean WTF.

Validate means to establish the soundness, accuracy, or legitimacy of something. Tolerate means to allow the existence, presence, practice, or act of without prohibition or hindrance, even if you find that something repugnant or distasteful. You'll notice that I didn't say illegal. Neither of those words have anything to do with being inclusive, and I agree that forcing people to be inclusive is pretty much forcing something down people's throats that they don't want.

The last question was for snoopy and since the OP's picture talked about religion AND race and gender, I was asking about the last 2 items, especially gender variance since it seems to be something many Christians don't even want to tolerate, let alone validate.

However, if you're of the opinion that IF people don't change their belief system to suit your belief system, or I'm guessing in this particular thread, lifestyle or perhaps even race, are they unworthy of your consideration or even respect?
I often make a point to remind my children about the difference between how I feel about their choices and how I feel about them; I always love them, no matter what... their choices, not so much. In a similar way: I think everyone is inherently equally valuable and worthy of respect... everyone's choices, maybe not necessarily quite so much.

Don't read too much into my comment... I'm not really all that opinionated about this. Sometime when you are on the east coast come meet me... I think maybe it would change a lot of your assumptions about me.
