I'm going to be polite and not name them, but someone on this app just called me a n**ger 😂. Can we just admit many people on this app are hiding how racist they truly are?

They probably called you that to piss u off for being a radical not because of racism

Yeah, but who cares. Everybody's racist. That's become a term that some Liberals misuse to try and get one over on people they don't like.

True. It is also a term that defined core issues of slavery, Jim Crow, Red Lining, and affirmative actions.

This app is much more right wing than the already right wing US. So yes, tons of unaddressed racism.

But muh freedom so let it ring.

1: Conservative is not the same as racist. The Right have many positions that are opposed to Logical Liberal views that are not racist.

2: The A Holio's that use rude, racist, sexist, or personal attacks on SOH are the price the rest of us pay for great discussions.

Really. I am a bit Left of Left.
I am a Bernie Sanders surrogate.
So let me repeat myself.
All this BS of bashing anyone on the Right for everything they do is not working. It is going to create resentment and make a joke of the Liberal Agenda.

Hardly. Rather than pursuing raging personal attacks, I build support for Logical Liberal facts.
1: our economy and our community benefit when the basis for conversation and commitment is the betterment of all strata of society.
2: the reason we are still struggling to make the progressive agenda a reality is failure of both parties to govern responsibly. That's why Bernie would have won the DNC nod, except for the 760 votes, a lot of DNC cheating, and media bias.

1. Liberalism has lead to the failure of the local economy. The export of production overseas is due to imperialist exportation of capital to the point of removing productive capital overseas as well. We're decaying because the economy can't exist on service jobs alone.

2. The reason the progressive movement isnt a resounding success is because the US is (1) a colonial nation and materially the masses base their politics off this fact. (2) Because to reject imperialism for progressivism the masses have to reject the basis of their cushioned livescand seek a less parasitic road.

So ya, good luck with that.

Pretty sound logic.
It's really simple,
The DNC has farmed votes by handing out benefits
The GOP has farmed votes by handing out favorable legislation to business.
The workers suffer
And the entitled are trapped for generations
Able bodied don't work
Diligent workers are over worked.

Racist slur. Inconsiderate. Reflects a weak argument from a hothead. Strengthen your argument. Do not raise your voice.

More likely liberals projecting their desire for those dissenting from their positions to be racist. Liberals would have you believe the majority of white people are racist, whether the white person knows it or not.

Many of them aren’t even trying to hide it any more, trying to fit in with the magatard herd. Be sure to report them (tap their username in the inappropriate post and choose report from the menu that pops up). Ignore them too if you want, from that same menu, but report them first.

“Just remember everytime you engage with one of these right-wingers that it could be them.”

I don’t think that’s fair, or helpful. Not all conservatives, or “right-wingers,” are racist, and I really don’t like having that seed planted in anyone’s mind. I think it’s just as destructive of the hope of people understanding each other as is the idiotic lumping of all liberals (or all of almost *any* group) as being, believing, thinking, or doing the same negative thing (including, ironically, being racists).

I’d much rather people approached each other with open hearts and minds. If I hate anything in our present world it’s the amount of divisiveness that exists, and the way it seems to be a downward spiral, kicked one step further down with each ugly thought of one of us toward another. The *false* ugly thoughts are the most lamentable.
