Simon ... is this really you ???
Can you just imagine if one of Trump's kids had been shown to have dressed up in the same way? It would be on CNN 24x7 for weeks, endlessly, and the word "RACIST" would be on the chyron every time.
I totally agree. I really never understood this whole issue and probably never will. We have the "Congressional Black Caucus" composed of most of the black members of Congress here in the US. If someone tried to make a "Congressional White Caucus", I think the shit would hit the fan and the person would be considered a racist.
We have the NAACP here in the US, the "National Association for the Advancement of Colored People". I can't imagine if someone tried to create an NAAWP, the "National Association for the Advancement of White People."
But when you tell me ...
Don't pretend it's not a big issue, it just highlights that you don't truly care about principles, like most leftists you don't really have many.
Are you referring to some of my personal comments or posts? Do you consider a person like myself, a self-proclaimed moderate, to lack principals like "most other leftists?"
In my lifetime, speaking of Republicans, I would consider Nixon and Trump as the lying pond scum of the earth. I would consider Reagan, George Bush the elder and George W. Bush to be good, honorable men. I consider other people (Republicans) such as Mitt Romney, Colin Powell and especially John McCain to be very honorable, capable leaders. Do I agree with everything they said or did, no. Just as I see very flawed personalities in both of the Clintons.
If I am considered a "leftist" by calling Trump pond scum by his berating a war hero (John McCain) who served years in a Vietnam prison, lost use of his arms, could have avoided serving entirely due to his father in the Air Force, didn't accept release from prison without his fellow prisoners being released also ... and ....and .... having this man we call the president berating him for having been captured when his fighter plane was shot down ... hiding McCain's name on the military ship dedicated in his honor when Trump visited Hawaii, saying McCain wasn't a hero but "I prefer people who don't get captured" ... and then, slick Donald avoids military service by using his family ties and gets a doctor to claim that his foot really hurts ... yea, ok.
I get it. I guess I am guilty. I am a liberal without principles.
