An open letter to people somehow more left than me:
Hi, I'm a feminist, leftist, gay pride loving liberal. That was a little redundant, but you get the point. I've posted a few takes about feminism (from a positive light) and some other liberal agenda. However, I thought, Id take a side note and talk about going overboard. Here are a few examples:
The Obama Administration (which I usually support) has purged all references linking terrorism with Islam, and mandated that no US government agency shall produce training material linking the two
Honesty, I wish people would screw their heads on straight and realize all religions are just cults that got popular. But, this is America, and people have freedoms to pursue their bizarre fantasies. So, I am definitely not for hate speech toward Muslim people, or stereotypes of terrorism.
However, this is just a reality of much of the terrorism the world is facing. It is extremist Islam, there is no way around that. Are all, or even a majority of muslims violent? No, absolutely not. But, we can't just omit facts because we want to be PC. Get a hold of yourself, come on!
The EEOC does not allow discrimination against non-violent offenders because it does undue harm against minorities
I agree, we have a socio-economic divide between races in this country, and I agree we need to continue to improve on that, as well as our judicial system.
However, you really can not put employers in this situation. Regardless, if these individuals would have been let go or received less severe punishments if they were white, they still broke the law! They still did drugs, or whatever else. You can not expect employers to take the potential liability of hiring a criminal simply because our socio-economic racial divide needs work. They have the information at that point, and they really can't just ignore it.
There was a high school in California that sent 5 students home for wearing an American flag t-shirt on Cinco De Mayo
Clearly, these kids were trying to be xenophobic. Now, I think xenophobia is ridiculous, and the product of generations of inbreeding, but it's still their right. This is America, they can wear an American flag t-shirt on any day they wish!
The whole "It's time to have a female/black/jewish/jehova's wittness president thing
Yes, I agree that this would show great progress for our country...if we elect the right person. The whole point of defeating racism, sexism, etc. is that race and gender are not viewed in the context of who would be a better leader. If you have merit-able reasons for voting for Hillary, my hat is off to you If you are doing so largely because "it's time," please don't call yourself a liberal. You are everything that is wrong with our side of the fence, and only give fuel to the right. The right isn't exactly immune to this idiocy.. case and point: Sarah Palin. That women literally represents the worst of the female race. She is dumber than a drunk sorority girl when she is at her prime. My god people.
With all that said, there are plenty of other examples.
However, I'd like to say in conclusion: Donald Trump really is a racist, sexist, a hole.
"They're rapists, murderers, and some...I assume are good people" that's not being anti-pc, that's being racist.
However, as a recent college has bared victim to, if people want to write go Trump on the sidewalk, that should not be considered an "unsafe environment." He's a political candidate, and even if people are idiots, they still have the freedom of speech as long as it's not threatening.
Leave your comments below, I'm sure I pissed off an assortment of people. Possibly more than usual.
