Remember "the Manchurian Candidate"

Kondar, vis a vis your link. I couldn't access it from my desk top (Dell dimension 2350), and I can't access it from this laptop....(a new Dell inspiron).....via comcast broadband internet.

Back on topic........I just signed for a course on "how to understand liberals", created by a joint venture from Ann Coulter and Rushbo Limbaugh.

Kondar, it could be a firewall issue. I was interested since I knew you were in China, and I liked your (short lived) avatar of the little chinese girl.

Kondar, how come you aren't wearing birkenstocks with socks and a tie-dye shirt in your photo? I guess you have to be a "stealth liberal" disguised as a regular American to be under the radar in the Carolinas

Still, it's good to see Kondar has progressed to the latter stages of leftism, right before the middle-age conversion to conservatism. And because hippies are gross, and I refuse to associate with them.

I prefer a random quote that was a Quote of the Day on IMDb:

"Wherever there's a hippie, there's a crime, even if that crime hasn't happened yet. That's what I always say."

Exactly!
Could you imagine the outrage if there was a thread called "Do you hate muslims?" and A THIRD of the people voting said "Yes"? That'd be condemned as racist and disgusting, in fact, the thread would probably be deleted by a moderator pretty swiftly and the OP punished. And yet, replace "muslim" with "American" and you somehow we suddenly have a "valid" thread and subject for "debate"!
What precisely is the difference between the two?
Muslims complain of "islamophobia" on a regular basis, but the casual hatred and constant insulting of countries like America and Israel is deemed entirely socially acceptable for everyday conversation, and is witnessed almost everywhere. As I said before, even in comedy shows, Americans are seen as valid targets, en masse, for ridicule and degradation and comments that would almost be criminal if aimed at muslims or blacks or other minorities.
For example, I went to a comedy show a couple of weeks back. The comedian was bantering with the audience and one audience member was being particularly dense. The comedian responded with "f**k, it's like talking to an American!" to be greeted with laughter and cheers from the audience. Now, replace the word "American" with "muslim" or "black person" or "homosexual", and you almost have grounds for an arrest, certainly there'd be very limited laughter or cheering. Could you imagine that, a mainstream comedian responding to a dense audience member by going "f**k, it's like talking to a black!"?! - it's unthinkable in this day and age.
Why is one acceptable and yet the others are not?
Once again, take for example the comments made by Kilroy-Silk about "Arabs". He was condemned and ridiculed and subjected to a police investigation to see if charges could be brought. Yet replace "Arab" with "American" and you just about have a typical, standard editorial from any number of mainstream newspapers and commentators, about which people go "yes, that's right", before toddling off to their anti-war protest safe in the knowledge that xenophobia and irrational prejudices are American traits.
The double standard is disgusting. And anyone who can hate 300million people based solely on nationality is a fool.

Yes Jonathan, of course, you're right, and you might add to the list.......Christians, who've taken a terrible beating over the past few years. As you said (in many cases), replace the word Christian with Muslim, you'd be tarred, feathered and thrown on the 1st boxcar outta town.

I actually agree with you!
First off, I voted 'no', and secondly I created a thread called do you hate muslims? but it wasn't a poll(i didn't know how to create polls then) so I'm not sure if anyone voted yes.

And if there was a 'do you hate the french' poll there would probably be similar results, part of it is the nationality thing and part of it is the minority issue and part of it is familiarity. But it's still wrong to say you hate all americans with no differentiation between individuals at all.
