the lack of critical thinking and the desire to investigate the truth by individuals
...is exactly what's needed in politics isn't it. Of course not when you're the one who creates or spins it, but when you're the one who digests it. Politics is like McDonalds meal: Ready to eat, pretty on the outside, nasty on the inside and you pay for it while the ones who devised it are sitting somewhere on the beach laughing their butts off. And modern politics is like LRAD, it pounds you into submission by a barrage of supposedly senseless noise that has nonetheless been carefully devised by clever people to attack just the right parts of your brain and numb you down. You can't discuss anything with LRAD, after all.

And racial debate is really beginning to run in circles, IMO. They will probably get to Adam and Eve soon with their desire to dig back on history in search of reasons to carry their cause forward.

Haters are going to hate and clowns are going to act like clowns! That's it at its base level.

The south won't some of those Factory's in the South to cut cost.

Brothers fought for the South & the North against each other.

I can trace my in-out-laws that for the North or for the South.

Just a question what would happen if someone destroyed Martin Luther, Kings Statues

Generally speaking, yes. There are certainly already exceptions to that (try peacefully assembling and carrying photos depicting hard core porn for one).

But there's also the argument that there is nothing peaceable about displaying ones preference for the outright genocide of people whose only crime is coming out of a different pussy.

While the KKK is distasteful and has a violent past, NAZIs believe in genocide of entire races. Their very belief system is predicated on eradication of humans.

Why do we waste any time defending any of them? They are all clownish groups. Klan, BLM, Nazis, etc. People don't need titles for their groups that single anyone out. How about people grow up and quit acting like kids and get things done.

Things I learned in this thread-

Many don't know the Constitution

Many don't know that Nazi's and fascists ( BLM, militant libs) are just different sides of the same coin.

Many like to derail threads

Many like to repeat themselves

Many like to not read all posts in a thread and post something that has already been beat to death

Many think they're genius

Many have political bias that causes them to beclown themselves
