I won't get into it anymore, enough about me I'm getting sick just talking about it, my apologies again. I seem to be repeating myself. :oops:
I disagree. A willingness to openly admit to who you are and how you came to be and why you will fight for what fair and good is never something to be ashamed of having done.;)

It's like liberal a 'virtue signaling' but you have actual virtue and having done virtuous actions to back it up instead of a selfish hollow agenda (you really don't want getting revealed) behind it. :p

BTW, regarding communism, my Great-Great Grandparents from my Moms-Dads-Mothers branch of my ancestors starved to death in communist Russia after having given everything they had to get her a one way ticket on a boat over to the US as a mail order bride or my Great grandpa.

That's what I have for first hand historical account of what communism did for people in my heritage. :(

There are striking historical parallels to the situation we find ourselves in. All of the -isms trying to do us in and only our institutions to protect us.

It's almost like the fact that people in and with power controlling what we watch and read is a problem. It's a global problem at different levels .

It's not funny how the narrative in more "free"(liberal) countries gets focused on what divides us because those with money and in power have gotten bored of hunting us for game and genocide is the next step for entertainment.

Anyone care to guess how many world wide recorded conflicts occurred due to Human Tribalism between 1900 and 1953, variously referred to as Incident, War, Revolution, Uprising, Rebellion, Massacre, and so on.
Ans=207 all overlapping without any pauses in between!o_O

Divide and conquer is halting our progress as living animals making do on this planet with number of sophisticated languages.

That's what so many of us in the US are dealing with now. The far left liberal agenda is in constant screaming fits over the atrocities of the very actions they are the worst offenders and creators of. It's just baffling from a more rational classic liberal to moderate conservative viewpoint to see people screaming about abuse of freedoms (freedoms we all have long since had for decades now) yet doing their damnedest to end every freedom (they make a fuss about and abuse the worst) from being the continued rights of everyone to have.

I don't get the appeal of it. Where I have lived (conservative midwest and central USA) since I was born 40+ years ago nobody cares what race, religion, social class, income, education, sexual preference or poltical affiliation anyone had or has unless they were making an in your face nuisance of themselves over it, which was and still is pretty rare here.
Yet now we are accused of being offenders of all of that and by the people who are easily seen to be the biggest and most proud to abuse and indulge in all of those segregations of our culture just to stir up unrest and long dead feelings over them. :(

Most days I think they just want to watch the world burn and have no choice but to self justify villainizing someone else, for their own actions, just so that they can try and make it happen because they are unfulfilled in life and just bored. :confused:

[Citation needed] However there seems to be a systematic racism and bigotry in your country in the name of nationalism.

We have a similar problem here in Iceland, just not on that scale. Facebook is filled with Icelandic people unaware that they are nationalists calling themselves free market.

That's rich coming from a place where 93% of the population is "Icelandic", and another 3% are Polish.

You don't need "nationalism" because you are already a monolithic population.

I am sure you treat the 7 slightly-darker-than-pale-white-skinned people in your country wonderfully.

What about "just not on that scale" was so hard to understand. You are a smart man.

"You don't need "nationalism" because you are already a monolithic population." Don't get jealous because most of you guys descend from other countries. Same here but the difference is when it comes to this bullshit is that most of us came here over 1000 years ago and there wasn't anybody to murder for that land.

I enjoyed your Sig, my wife's best friend Ramona forgot her last name at the Moment, from California joined the Mormon Church one of the first blacks to do so, she was good friends with Mary Osmond, she sang backup for Gladys Knight which may have influenced Gladys to join the church as well.

Anyway she toured Europe and Japan, came back to Utah when I first met her she had a saying similar to your Sig, more Vulgar imagine a black person saying this. (She died an Alcoholic about 10 years ago.)

Ramona said:
" Don't Sweat Over The Dumb Sh*t " just let it float by.
So, when I meet ignorant, stupid I quickly just let it roll on by without acknowledging them, which BTW is what they are trying to accomplish (Get Under my skin) makes more angry you don't.

Until they put their hands on me all bets are off, my training kicks in and my body takes over, but I warned them first " I say, If you want to be stupid go right ahead but remember I warned you "
