Quote# 89987

[African Americans must] understand that even while in the throes of slavery, their lives as Americans are likely much better than they ever would have enjoyed living in sub-Saharan Africa.

...

Knowing what we know today about life on the African continent, would an existence spent in slavery have been any crueler than a life spent in sub-Saharan Africa?

Ooo, I remember that one. I liked how you linked fascism as a response, or a reaction, to a fermenting socialist/communist/populist revolutionary drive.

It makes a lot of logical sense. Right wing ideology, in its purest form, is a reactionary force, and what's further right than fascism(savagesuzie et. all notwithstanding)?

"@ UHM: this here is a site that takes the piss out of and insults various loonies. We'll call 'em what we fucking well like. We are not about correct use of language and history, we are all about the abuse. You want to get all politically correct and play word-magic games, fuck off over to Pharyngula, they're big on that shit over there."

You use the same rhetoric as fundies who refer to "leftist fascists". Abuse is pointless when we are supposed to be seeking a moral high ground. I agree with UHM.

@J.James
For once I agree with you. Having said that, NiggEraser is particularly stupid even by normal standards of racists.

Nobody told me we were supposed to be seeking the moral high ground. I couldn't find the moral high ground on a fucking map, anyway. I'm here to laugh at the loonies, end of.

For the life of me I will never understand the completely irrational hatred that some people have for arbitrary "races" that differ from their own. It makes no sense. Like that one racist's Ferrari metaphor. The fuck? Seriously, the fuck?! The world's largest forced migration, the world's largest economic profiteering off of forced labor, the world's largest subjugation of real, human beings, and it is reduced to someone shitting in a nice car? You have got to be kidding me. If this is the best argument that racists could come up with, they're even more pathetic than I thought.

I don't get it either. Discrimination based on stupid things like skin color or whatever is like discrimination based on big noses!

"AAARRGGH! SCHNOZZERS!...."

"....GET IN THE BACK OF THE BUS!"

That sure wouldn't go over well with Roger & Pete. Pete would trash the bus while Roger...


"HEY! YOU! LEAVE US BIG NOSERS ALONE!"

Babs would nag everyone to death....

So, Mr. Hubbard, I guess this guy just had a nice spa massage treatment, huh?

@UHM: The trouble with the high ground is that you're so far up your arrows don't hit.
