You just did. 161 views..I'll take that, gets the word out and entertains me. >:D

Yeah I responded to clown you as usual.


I don't get this.

You get upset when people do this to you but it's okay for you to do this "as usual" to others.

Fortune cookie says: Don't clown from a glass house.

So what does the fortune cookie say now? You can call me out, but what about him. It’s such a double standard, so unfair. Or maybe you think it’s okay to promote hate.

Sigh. You don’t get it. I’m trying to keep threads on-topic and you keep bringing stuff in from non-related threads.

How am I promoting hate? That’s a serious accusation that you better have good backup for.

What are you talking about read the thread?
1. I called him out because Morekas posted articles that may offend people.
2. Morekas confirmed it as he mentioned this is the point of the thread. Also, he mentioned it drives dialogue.
3. So I’m the bad guy? When I’m standing up to him/calling him out that posting articles about “blackface” stories is not cool?
4. I said maybe you are okay with Morekas posts that are hateful in nature. Because you didn’t say nothing to him. Nothing at all.

That’s what this thread is all about, snowflakes taking meaningless, mundane things and conflating them into racist, phobic issues that butthurt their tender, pampered self image. Not at all hateful but clearly “funny”.  Comedy is truly dead. Does anyone think movies like Airplane, Blazing Saddles, Animal House or Soul Man could ever be made today? Oh hell no, but they are some of the funniest ever created. My kids love those movies.  PC has moved into the realm of bats#*t crazy and That’s sad. I find these extreme stories tragically funny, and that’s too bad

Can’t even watch Mary Poppins!

Mary Poppins branded racist for 'blacking up' in rooftop scene

US Professor Daniel Pollack-Pelzner criticised the classic Mary Poppins film
The academic criticises the film in an article published in the New York Times
In one scene Mary Poppins's face is covered with soot after going up a chimney
Professor Pollack-Pelzner writes: 'Her face gets covered with soot, but instead of wiping it off, she gamely powders her nose and cheeks and gets even blacker'

This should be a nice test to see if Snowflakes are equal in their outrage when one of their own is under the racist bus.

One of the funniest ads yesterday in a whole gaggle of depressing ones.  "Implied" a vegan meal of beetloaf would be hellish?  Said it outright.  Totally hilarious, but some didn't think so.

They've got beef! Vegan outrage at Hyundai Super Bowl ad which mocked them and implied that an animal-free dinner party is a hellish experience


Hyundai's Super Bowl ad starring Jason Bateman upset the vegan community
Bateman plays an elevator operator delivering people to unpleasant experiences
The ad put vegan dinner parties on par with root canals, jury duty and 'the talk'
Vegans were quick to vent their displeasure at being mocked on social media 
Many vegans declared they would never drive a Hyundai again
Others shared pictures of vegan meals as a counterpoint to Hyundai's 'beet loaf'
Hyundai quickly did damage control by claiming to 'love vegan food'

Of course you are, when a hat triggers your snowflake meltdowns.

Why Trump's MAGA hats have become a potent symbol of racism

That context cannot be divorced from the image of the MAGA hat any more than the Confederate flag can be divorced from the brutality of chattel slavery. And yet, every Donald Trump apologist will try to say otherwise -- that it's just a hat, or that it is worn by different people for different reasons. How do I know? Because I've listened to similar excuses in my native South Carolina about those who wear or fly the Confederate flag. They do so to honor their ancestors, I've been told, or to embrace Southern heritage, or because they are exercising their First Amendment rights.
The MAGA hat, like the Confederate flag, wouldn't elicit outraged reactions if it were only a piece of cloth that harkened back to bygone days never to be relived. But it isn't. It is a signifier for those who believe America was great during some point in the past they dare not name, knowing if they do, it would reveal a time when it was worse for people of color. When was America "great"? When millions of black people were slaves? When hundreds of thousands of black men were sold to US companies via convict leasing? Maybe during the heart of Jim Crow, the height of lynching, or when black people struggling with drug addictions were viewed as criminals to be controlled, not fellow human beings needing help?

Speaking of meltdown. You and your party really meltdown after the midterms. I don’t even know what your party you consider yourself since you don’t care about half of other Republicans or more from across the US that receive benefits. (previously we had a conversation and you mentioned you don’t care about them)

You are creating your own controversy. No one on TI really care about the hats. I don’t think no one even mentioned it.

how do you tell if someone is vegan? don't worry, they'll let you know!

Quote
Vegans are beefing with Hyundai over a Super Bowl ad that made fun of vegan dinner parties

But one stop in the otherwise innocuous elevator bit has ruffled some feathers, or at least some 100 percent recycled polyester down equivalents.

“Vegan dinner party,” Bateman says as the doors ding open. “Is that even a thing?”

“We’re having beetloaf — Sergio’s specialty,” says the smiling host as she approaches her guests while extending a purple gelatinous concoction.

Sergio takes a bow while one of the dinner guests retches.

Then the ad pivots to the conceit of the commercial: the heavenly experience of purchasing a Hyundai.

But vegans felt personally attacked. Why should their decision to live a planet-friendly, animal-cruelty-free lifestyle be comparable to a colonoscopy or a root canal or a teenager getting “the talk” and hearing about how “even Grandma’s body changed.”

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the animal rights organization more commonly known as PETA, chided the car company on Twitter.

And that's the irony.

eyephone is accusing me of being okay with promoting hate and he doesn't get that is the point of this thread... that some people are so quick to paint something as hate.

There are several things that eyephone says that can be seen as "hateful" but then he says he is just joking. Mmmm... okay.

Again Eye, your missing the point.  This is not an issue brought up by anyone here, it is a national phenomena brought up by the national media and internet trolls.  More than one Snowflake outlet like CNN, NYT and MSNBC brought up the "hat" as a triggering device.  This is not a hood or even a baklava..its a golf cap.  How is a golf cap racist?  Just more nonsensical, snowflake, fake drummed up hysterical baloney.

I’m glad that you stated that no one on TI brought up the red hat. How come you never blamed Trump’s secretary’s for the way they spent tax payers money for taking trips, you never blamed Scott P for having a sound proof room paid by the tax payers? (I can keep on going)

Why don’t you blame the GOP for being out of touch? (midterm results)

To tell you the truth if I see someone wearing the red maga cap, I'll immediately think racist...

I would suggest if you want to sell your products to as wide an audience as you can, you should refrain from wearing that hat even if you support trump.
Didn't jordan say he wasn't a dem or repub because they all buy sneakers...


I also don't believe in 0's and 1's for racist or not.  Racism is on a gradient.  and yes trump is high on this gradient, but it doesn't mean he can't do good for the country...and for me.

I don’t bring that up because A) that’s not the topic of this thread and B) I believe both sides waste taxpayers money like that. For every repub under a repub you can find a dem stealing under a dem...to me just no distinction there. This race baiting, snowflake thing is uniquely Democrat.
