Oh Helen, you scamp, you.

I always love hearing about how people are "icons" to the left wing from right-wing sites.
 
2011-02-18 12:37:27 PM
If I'm not mistaken, black people are not particularly liberal as a general rule.

/there is a difference between being a loyal Democratic voter and being liberal.
 
2011-02-18 12:39:30 PM
And yet every single Republican voter thinks he's the most liberal lib of all the libs.

Oh yay, it's the daily "ALL LIBERALS ARE RACIST PILES OF GARBAGE" thread.

Our new motto around here, it's not racist when the left does it.

Uh, yea. What she said is textbook racism (or more accurately, prejudice). Who on the left is giving her a pass?

When a huge number of Tea Partiers say racist things, the right wing tells us not to assume the rest of them feel that way. But when some random liberal says something racist, it means liberals are the most racist people EVAR!

That was an outrage. Then I understood the context. Meh.
 
2011-02-18 01:38:41 PM
Weird. I thought Obama was supposed to be more liberal because that was what he claimed to be when he was running. Correct me if I'm wrong, did I miss the campaign speech where he promised to cower and buckle at the first sign of Republican opposition?

It was still pretty dumb.

Not as dumb as the blogger's little "Fartnambla is the liberalest liberal ever to liberal" crack before the video, but still pretty dumb.

When a white person kills someone we discuss how evil that person is and about the atrocity that he committed. When a black person kills someone, you all have a discussion about predisposition to criminality and you try to figure out what's wrong with all black people.

I love that little old bitty.
Ya know, she was just saying that...
"Once the war was over, the Jews were not persecuted and could have gone back home. It just so happens that home is actually Germany and Poland."

Why did they have to take the Palestinian land again?

Oh, ok. I though this was the thread where we were discussing things honestly. My bad. You're right, no one ever says anything racist on Fark. And it certainly does not happen in every single thread about a black person.

A lot of people say a lot of things in threads on Fark. It's a pretty diverse crowd. There's really no viewpoint on this forum that is held universally. There are racist people in every group and it's stupid to say an entire group is racist because some members say racist things. However, my point was that right wingers push the narrative that liberals are the true racists, and they use quotes from a few people as evidence that the entire group is racist. Those same people will deny up and down that the Tea Party is racist when given the exact same evidence. It's pretty hypocritical.

And my point was that many Farkers will use incidents of black people commiting crimes as evidence that all black people are predisposed to criminality. And they will deny up and down that a white person killing is evidence of any systematic problem in the "white community".

A generalization is a generalization.

And they are just as ignorant. But it's not like that's the prevailing viewpoint on Fark. Sure, some morons will troll a thread with alts and it may seem like there are more of them than there actually are, but they don't speak for the reasonable majority.

I'll say that I've noticed a lot more people calling out bigots. And for the record, I do not believe that the majority of Farkers are bigots.

No, that's why the Tea Party exists.

He's supposed to be more liberal because HE CAMPAIGNED AND WON ON IT.

Your stupidity is an art form.

I say this, not merely as a compliment to being a shining example of derp, but because I do not think I could replicate it even if practicing for years.

It's like a true Van Gogh - there have been many copies by very talented artists yet there is a quality possessed by the authentic article that is not able to be copied.
