Yes Subby. Not wanting to take a picture with a snake-oil salesman is the zenith of prejudice on the left.

Waitaminute. Don't we all own public figures? They have to do what we want.

Hmmm. But they are both public figures. Perhaps free will is still in play.

It's very interesting that his kids don't know that their dad is a hated figure outside of Republican circles.

Dear Mr. Ryan,

Thank you for wanting to score points with your kids by having a picture taken with us (but not them).  I appreciate it.  However, since I'm not a trained monkey, I think I'll keep my image to myself.
Love ----

Funny thing...He's also hated in a lot of Republican circles. For different reasons, mind.

Yeah.....no. I wouldn't do it either. Knowing that decades from now that picture will be flying around the interwebs with memes and BS. It's tacit support of Ryan's policies to pose with him.

No f*cking way.

"We were in a movie about anti-bullying and practicing peace and love and tolerance and accepting of people for their differences," Bondi said. "That's what Mr. Rogers is all about. We all believe in free speech, but there's a big difference there."

Translation: why is everyone being so mean to us? Those mean old liberals!

I took it completely tongue-in-cheek. It gets thrown around every time a Nazi gets punched or an openly racist RWNJ trolls the left by trying to book a speaking gig at Berkeley.

These people don't even realize when they're being insulted, do they?

I'm sure they do, but maybe are classy enough to try to have a civil dialog with the boors to see if they can bridge the gulf that divides them. In the fashion of that black guy who initiates talks with Klan members.

Pretty much, at least to my understanding of it. Though now it's become more of a joke that anytime these people are rebuked, meet opposition, or a Nazi gets punched then the Republicans turn into absolute victims and everyone else is a poopy headed meanie.

It's a dumb thing the right brings up thinking that being intolerant toward intolerance makes a tolerant person a hypocrite. It doesn't. Karl Popper solved this a century ago: A tolerant person desires all outcomes that produce more tolerance. Therefore a tolerant individual cannot be tolerant toward intolerance because it leads to the exact opposite desired outcome. Therefore, they should repel intolerance wherever it exists. This is not a contradiction.

Exactly!  You just try to defend these things, Mr. Smarty.  Taxation?  I can spend my money better'n any government that ever existed, and I choose to spend it on things that matter to me (unless I need a road or something, then somebody else should foot the bill).  Wages?  A fair day's work for a fair day's pay!  Bosses always look out for their employees!  And education?  Now you're just foolin' around.  If my kids can cypher and learn the Bible, what more do they need?  And when they're done, they can explain what "cypher" means to me, 'cause I'm not sure -- I just read it in a Zane Grey once.

It wouldn't be decades. It would be less than 24 hours before the right-wing meme machine had an image of Seth Rogen with some fake quote next to an image of him with Rand Paul and an even faker quote.

2018-06-24 02:46:44 AM  
Okay, I'm an anti right winger and not so much a "true" liberal and here's the thing about "tolerance": It's not some magic word that a bunch of hippy liberals invoke every single occasion to get the public to like them no matter what they do, unlike your buzzwords "patriot", "Murrica", "freedom", and "terrorism". Ergo, you won't see a liberal doing the most henious actions known to man and say "tolerance" and their fellow libs go all "Damn, he said the magic word, can't do anything about it now!"

Second, tolerance doesn't mean that you have to like something or someone - for example, I tolerate trolls and morons on here all the time, but I don't like them by any stretch of the imagination. You could tolerate the concept of same sex marriage being legal and still not like it one bit. It was called the civil rights movement and not the civil "likes" movement for a reason.

Why wouldn't he? He didn't think it was worth his time to serve in WWII, even in a cushy gig John Ford arranged for him.

Even while older and more established stars like Jimmy Stewart and Clark Gable put their asses on the line.

Fark John Wayne. He's the chicken hawk prototype.
