I'm so fucking tired of racists.

And I'm not talking about people who may not recognize the privilege they have simply by accident of birth.

And I think giving a platform for out and out hateful racists who call our First Lady the most vile, racist names, is hardly admirable.

I've been posting over at DU's sister site and it is filled with the ugliest racism.

I just blasted them over there.

I don't know if we're allowed to link there, so I won't, but really....

1. I saw a sticker on a pickup today "What are two things coal and Obama

have in common? They are both black and both should be burnt." Of course on other side was "TRUMP Make America
Great Again" They don't even try to hide it anymore.

2. Are you talking about discussionist?

The administrators here created it, so it would seem odd if people here weren't "allowed" to talk about it.

For a while after it started there was a concerted effort of DEMANDS to "SHUT IT DOWN!!!1111!!! RIGHT FCUCKING NOW AAREEEEERRRRREEEGGHGHGHHHH" but last time I checked, it was still there.

It - DI that is - was amusing for a couple weeks at first, but as many noticed, arguing with carrot-level IQ right wingers has limited entertainment value.


As usual, ordering people not to do something- in this case "good DU members don't post on discussionist" is counter-productive, but..... if left to their own devices rational people usually come to the right conclusion anyway.

fuck em. laugh at em. feel sorry for em.



Like I said, that place lost its entertainment value quickly for me. Now its like a portapotty after 4 days of a music festival, speaking of lollapalooza.

In my experience trying to argue with people like that is a waste of time.

31. the reason it's not whatever to me is that it's a site run by a liberal

 

run by the same liberal who owns DU. I like Skinner, but the lack of any moderation over there and the license given over there to ugly racist shit is shameful. I just donated to DU. It's a shame that DU is associated with Discussionist for the reasons given- and more.

34. I just feel differently. I don't think the fact that people say fucked up things there constitutes

an endorsement of the fucked up speech by the admins.

They've been clear from the get-go that DI was a place where people could say whatever they want, or a sort of DU3 on steroids with all the things that make DU DU, removed. It's a deliberate exercise in free expression.

It is what it is. I have no desire to go there anymore, but I also don't give a shit what people do over there. Frankly, I'd rather have them busy over there than constantly crashing and burning troll accounts over here, like many of them used to. But, YMMV of course.


Edited to add: My "whatever" was directed at the jackknob who made the comment, not you.

You can always bring it up with admin directly, of course.

Still, again, having done several turns on MIRT, I have to wonder if there's less trolling of DU by those folks because they're busy over there.

6. There's no rule against linking there, but your description is more than enough

I'm sick of racists too, and I hate how much racism is being 'mainstreamed' and 'normalized' in political discourse. I'm not naive enough to beleive it begins and ends with Trump's ascendency. That's more of a symptom than a cause.

However I am glad some websites don't tolerate it or tacitly promote it.

7. Need to go back

Back to when you could slam a president or a candidate for any office all you wanted with any vile, nasty hateful rhetoric, but family was a 'hands off' affair, even if the family was exposed and active in the campaign or day to day running of the office. But since 2000 or so, the office holders and candidates, their spouses, their children and even grandchildren are now held up to ridicule, hurtful, harmful comments, threats, internet bullying and picture photoshopping and posting. Makes you want to puke. All parties are equally guilty of it which is even sadder, there is no moral template to look up to anymore.

32. exactly. it's a platform for hate, racism and xenophobia- not alll cons there are like that but

 

the strong majority are.

No moderation. And cons outnumber not only liberals but reasonable people with a shred of decency, so the racist or bigoted crap is often left to stand.

11. Me too. But mostly, I am noticing that hispanics and followers of Islam, in particular,

 

have a very wary look about them nowadays. I'm white. So I am noticing that the discomfort level has risen way high. I don't mind for myself and I usually adopt a neutral face so as not to give people cause for worry. Makes me sad to see that anyone of my fellow citizens is fearful of being challenged b/c of their skin, beliefs etc.

Yes this stuff was there b/f Trump, but members of our society are being singled out now in the most brutal way and its so not fair. I hope that each of us can learn to live and let live.

are the racism against us black people from folks in our own party. When I have people who tell me on my own face book page that I need to stop talking about race, stop posting about things being done to black people. I even had someone tell me the other day that I was making up stuff about what I had been saying has happened to me.

I mean really, you can't make up stuff about being called the n word, you really can't

I actually tried to debate some of the RWers on that site a while back, but eventually decided doing so was a waste of my time and energy. I haven't even bothered to visit that site at all for months now, and have no plans to go back in the future. The racists on Discussionist, and countless other RW websites have been crawling out of the woodwork ever since Obama took office.

and other waste disposal areas of humankind and our bodies is DI. Always have been here, ALWAYS WILL BE. Racial, gender and life orientation hate gives the trump loving psycho-sociopaths their venue to keep us aware that this filth pervades this so-called civilized society. Human beings are always one step away from returning to cave dwelling human looking animals. ONE STEP! "why can't we use them"?(nuclear weapons for the uninformed) as quoted from the chump.

44. They can't help themselves, that's what they were taught

They were taught to hate and fear black people and they share an open forum to express that fear and hatred. It pretty much is a demonstration of endemic white supremacy in America.

They may fail to see it, but to anyone with a lick of common sense, it's all too obvious.

To me, its fascinating to see it out in the open, as well as the resentment they have whenever others fail to share their bigoted beliefs.

If anything, it's imperative for non-racist whites to call the racists on their racism. Racism is a white peoples problem in this country, so it behooves whites to do something about it. Going after them face to face in that forum is a great start.

Whether racist, sexist, religious - no one has the right to label another and the decide if that person has the right to live - and live as they choose.

NO ONE.

Trump has given racists the courage to be open about their views. We must make sure his defeat is so crushing that he slinks off in humiliation.
