I actually don't make a practice of using slurs but concerning DUs use of the term "chimpy" to defame our sitting president I had wondered what would occur if the same (exact same, mind you) term were applied to their dear leader. Fart-in-a-church doesn't seem to even touch the reaction I see in the little vision in my head.

I agree with Striker here.


WE ARE BETTER THEN THAT, and the pendulum will swing back around after some time with him in office. ***My point being that he is socialist, not black***


Lets lose this one with dignity, and smile to ourselves as he fails. ***and hope that he fails just enough to not hose us and out kids for decades. *****as a socialist, not because of the color of his skin.

The HELL there isn't!



That being said, there is nothing that says the owners of a website cannot establish rules for its use, which is what Striker has done by enforcing those rules.



To say that one of our rights doesn't exist in a public forum is heading down the garden path...



ETA: For the record, I agree with Striker. The derogatory remarks related to race needs to stop.

private owned forum,,  they make the rules,  you follow or you go else where its that simple. I dont see why some folks cant wrap their heads around that concept!


And to be honest listening to grown men, and women  cry like a bunch of school yard pansy ass's is getting old.

Obama is in office, deal with it.
If he does what we all fear , then well get off your ass and DO something about it or will everyone sit and cry then as well

Crying,complaining and bitching on a forum about it  wont get jack shit done.

Making remarks about him becuase of his "color" is weak at best. Its child like and stupid. We all bitched about the dems crying, well they stopped a while years back, and now you see why!
So are we to sit here and cry like lil babies or get over it move on and make due!!!!

I agree with Striker.

There is enough factual ammo out there regarding Obama that no one should even need to resort to racial slurs - plus it's just plain wrong to do so.

As an aside, a few years ago I was in Walmart, and a guy called me a honkey chicken farmer -   I was sickitated for a long time afterward.  (thread in Archives)
Link Posted: 11/11/2008 4:06:49 AM EDT
So I guess when it comes to sports,  we'll have to talk about only badminton and hockey...and maybe curling, too.    Any other sports might be thought to have a racial bias to them.  

I kid, of course.

I don't do the racial slur thing.  I won't post stuff like that.   That doesn't mean I might not laugh at it,  but my sense of humor is very broad.

I think our good nature and morality puts at a severe disadvantage in today's climate. Basically we, the ones that refrain from all the name calling and the over  the top remarks frankly become easy to ignore and are marginalized, our pouts never get made and we lose elections. It takes a little more these days to grab a piece of the spot light and it is what as conservatives we are not doing.

I'd like to believe that, but I know better. Doesn't take much reading here to realize how many posters do not have the politically correct, non-racist viewpoint.

And, if were are better than that, we wouldn't need to threaten bans to illustrate the point.

Link Posted: 11/11/2008 4:14:19 AM EDT
Lets not forget that political correctness is what has allowed all of these abuses over the years to get us where we are today.

We have to get use to speaking out again and saying what is on our mind without feeling that we will get our heads handed to us.

Common sense must still prevail but at the same time I think we also need a little humor in our lives as well.

I hope the owners allow more freedoms.

The racial slurs are starting at work too. In an industry where most of the "residents" are black, it's starting to make me uncomfrotable and I'm white (but not an 88er). If I open my yap to talk about our "dear leader", it sure as hell isn't because he's black. It's because he is a Marxist / Socialist! I don't give a damn about the color of the man's skin, but I do give a damn about his actions.

The basketball court thing is something Obabbler said himself.

So is this going to be applied universally and we can expect to see a stop to "it's not chicken/beef but cat/doggy" and bad Chinglish comments in Asian threads such as these?

I think a lot of guys here need to let off steam. I wouldn't take that decompression as ban worthy, if they were usually known as solid.

They ARE better then that, and will get back to center soon, I'm sure.

eta: I have to be PC in the real world, and deal with people that like him. I come here to VENT at the end of my day. I really hate the fact that he is president, but can suck it up, and just try to make it as difficult as I can for him, in my small way, for the next 4.
Link Posted: 11/11/2008 4:32:17 AM EDT
Slander or, in this case, libelous comments have their own course of action should someone care to take that route.

But to tell someone that they CANNOT speak the truth is an infringement on our (American) rights. Plain and simple. Yes there are some limits, fire in a crowded theater comes to mind. But to tell me I can't comment on obama wanting a basketball court is down right silly. Especially considering that he said it himself. I will applaud him loudly for realizing that exercise is going to be even more important to his physical and intellectual well being. Plus, his whole family can participate - a WIN WIN. I am coaching youth basketball, it is an excellent activity for ALL ages, races, sizes, etc..

I don't care to get mired in the racial aspects that some drivel on about. I am judging him on the content of his character NOT the color of his skin. That is the real scary picture.

To say we have "no first amendment rights here" is asinine. We are "peaceably" assembled aren't we? If you are not then I would suggest a lock on your account.

Whoa Hoss, I don't usually comment so I'll give it a try:

Proud To Be White
Someone finally said it.
How many are actually paying attention to this?

              There are African Americans,
Mexican Americans,
Asian Americans,
Arab Americans,
Native Americans, etc.
.....And then there are just -
Americans...
You pass me on the street
and sneer in my direction.
You Call me 'White boy,'
'Cracker,' 'Honkey,'
'Whitey,' 'Caveman,'
.....And that's OK.
But when I call you Nigger,
Kike, Towel head,
Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey,
Beaner, Gook, or Chink,
.....You call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot
of violence against you,
so why are the ghettos the most
dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Hispanic History Month.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Asian History Month.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Kawanza.
You have the NAACP.
And you have BET.
If we had WET
(White Entertainment Television)
.....We'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day
.....You would call us racists.
If we had White History Month
.....We'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites
to 'advance' OUR lives,
.....We'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,
a Black Chamber of Commerce,
and then we just have the plain
Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?
If we had a college fund that only gave
white students scholarships
.....You know we'd be racists...
There are over 60 openly-proclaimed
Black-only Colleges in the US ,
yet if there were 'White-only Colleges'
.....THAT would be a racist college.
In the Million-Man March,
you believed that you were
marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights,
.....You would call us racists.
You are proud to be black,
brown, yellow and red,
and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride
.....You call us racists.
You rob us,
carjack us,
and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer
shoots a black gang member
or beats up a black drug-dealer
who is running from the LAW and
posing a threat to ALL of society
.....You call him a racist.
I am proud.
.....But, you call me a racist.
Why is it that only
whites
can be racists?
There is nothing improper about this e-mail.
Let's see which of you
are proud enough to send it on... ���
