No, you only give certain people a pass. Your buddy is as much a name-caller as anyone here. He engages in personal attacks and, imho, vileness. You never say anything to him about it. Look, you need to get it through your thick skull that I don't care what you think about my posts mocking him. I don't do it for you. I do it for me in hopes that one day he'll realize that what he does can be done with any other groups and that the groups he decides to focus on are a clear indicator of his bigotry.chucky wrote: ↑Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:23 pmI give everyone a pass for what they say if they say what they believe. I don’t like the name calling , personal attacks and vileness , but that’s acceptable here so I live with it. This constant mocking and taking engaging in behavior you don’t agree with to make a point is tedious. We know what you think about the others here it’s a mostly closed group it has been for years. I have far more tolerance of other points of view than you do. Maybe I understand some of the posters here better . That doesn’t mean I don’t see things clearly. You should try to accept that not everyone can move off their old views on to the latest societal accepted ones as easily as you . In any case we all have our opinions and are free to express and discuss them.evilconempire wrote: ↑Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:07 pmI don't claim to be or pretend to be a "moral bastion." He says what he really thinks and you are okay, even complimentary of that, but when I say what I really think then there's a problem. You should try to not pretend to know what's authentic, real, or meant when you so clearly don't. You have a blind spot when it comes to Z. You should work on that. I respect people that don't give passes to others for no good reason other than "I like you."chucky wrote: ↑Tue Apr 17, 2018 2:04 pmHe doesn’t claim to be the moral bastion that you pretend to be.

now, what on earth made that Starbucks manager call the cops?
A Starbucks spokesman told The Inquirer and Daily News of Philadelphia that the manager left the downtown store at 18th and Spruce Streets in what the company called a “mutual” decision.
Johnson, the chief executive officer, was in Philadelphia this morning, a day after protesters rallied Sunday at a downtown Philadelphia Starbucks, where the two black men, who have yet to be identified, were led out in handcuffs Thursday by police and accused of trespassing.
The demonstrators had demanded Starbucks fire the manager of the store for calling the police.
As Johnson was being interviewed on “GMA” this morning, about two dozen protesters were at the downtown Philadelphia Starbucks chanting, "A whole lot of racism, a whole lot of crap, Starbucks coffee is anti-black."
The protesters later held a sit-in inside the Starbucks shop.
"We don't want this Starbucks to make any money today. That's our goal," Abdul-Aliy Muhammad, one of the protest's organizers and co-founder of the Black and Brown Workers Collective, told The Associated Press.
Abdul? worker's collective?
I'm optimist. I believe even the most narrow-minded can widen their vision of the world. Does that bother you? Do you think it's wrong of me to think that way? Why is it that you only comment, negatively, to me when I do it, but not when your SJW lapdog does it?
"I have far more tolerance of other points of view than you do."
I believe you that you believe you do.
"Maybe I understand some of the posters here better."
Maybe you just lack the self-awareness to realize that you aren't as superior as you think you are.
"You should try to accept that not everyone can move off their old views on to the latest societal accepted ones as easily as you ."
Like you've done with me? You really have a stunning lack of self-awareness.
" In any case we all have our opinions and are free to express and discuss them."
That's all I'm doing. Maybe after this you'll give me the space to do so that you give to others. See, I really am an optimist.
