Having to 'explain' why you are friends with somebody...

#1 Post by AJMD429 » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:06 am

When I have a friend who is gay or black or 'trans' or whatever, and I take them into a 'right-wing redneck conservative' environment like a shooting range, I NEVER have to defend or 'explain' why I'm hanging around such a person.

But that friend will nearly always tell me that when they tell THEIR 'left-wing snowflake liberal' friends about their experience, THEY have to explain why they would hang around such awful people as 'NRA members' or 'Republicans' or whatever...

The 'progressssssives' tally and calculate and judge EVERYONE according to skin color, gender, 'orientation', religious belief, and income.

The 'conservatives' really don't pay any attention to those superficial things, and focus on the individual person's actual actions.

Now tell me again,

a) Which 'side' is the one that is 'bigoted' and 'intolerant' and 'prejudiced'....??????
b) Which is the one that is REALLY 'inclusive' and 'tolerant' and 'open minded'....??????

.
I'd have to opine that all qualities, good and bad, can be assigned to all peoples in different measure.

The real difference lies in the quality of personal judgement or maturity that allows one to give in / not give in or to act / not act on impulse.

Controlling impulsiveness allows one to evaluate or re-evaluate a situation or person to either confirm or to modify a previously held notion or opinion.

If one has been programmed to react to Condition A with Response #1, then one has no choice but to react.

Government office attracts the power-mad, yet it's people who just want to be left alone to live life on their own terms who are considered dangerous.

Freedom of association has always been ignored by 'crats/socialists/progressives.
