Every day, more see that the road to communisms in America does not involve a knock in the night or a jack-booted thug. It starts with smooth-talking politicians offering seemingly innocuous compromises, and an opportunistic leadership that chooses not to stand up for America’s enduring principles of freedom and self-independents.

Best I can tell, Silver doesn't like you, your friends or the fact you used your minority status to attend college for your graduate and post graduate degrees. That's just my intrepretation and you may interpret it differntly. What's the old saying "you say potato and I say potahto"? Could be the case here. Just ask him if you don't understand.
I thought conservatives admired people who came from poverty and did not choose a life dependent on the government, but made their own way through hard work and self reliance to be successful. I am that man, and I also encourage and help young people of today do the same. I wonder why Silver hates me for being successful? Do you think he may be a racist and his dislike is due to the fact that I am black? Do you defend Silver in his racist view? Do you think the term "half breed" is a racist expression?

Half breed is definitely a racist expression and the silver using it is definitely a racist. That type, regardless of their race, has low self esteem and compensates by fabricating a group less worthy than their lowly self. Then , mostly to reinforce their own beliefs, they rail against the "bad" people. "See those bad people, I'm not like them---, I am therefore good". this works for them and they deceive themselves into the belief that they have somehow convinced others.
It is actually pathetic, but it is what it is.

Arnold, I can't speak for everybody, but I'll speak for myself. I admire anyone who chooses a life independent of the government that will eventually make them dependent on the government. I don't know why Silver hates you for being successful, but I can tell you I don't dislike you or anyone that is successful, nor do I try to shame them to give away what they worked hard for unless they feel personally they should. Yes, I'd say Silver is racist and I don't know if there was something in his life that shaped his views on race or if that's just how he feels; however, he has a right to be a racist, have freedom of speech and express it. I don't like the term "half breed", "bitch", "SOB", and the list could go on because it attacks a person's race and sex. I happen to think we have a poster on here that constantly attacks women under the auspice of "debating" and I, too, think is wrong. This poster clearly has a problem with females as Silver does with race and I never see you call this misogynist out on this fact.

Arnold, this is my opinion on your post: You can't please all the people all time, so stop trying. Stop your double standards too on subjects we discuss. You can call Silver out for being a racist, but you won't call Mike out when he attacks what is suppose to be your religious views. Why is that? You will attack me over how I interpret scriptures you cherry pick for an argument, but never follow the other scriptures where the Bible states to be a witness and spread the gospel/good news of the Jesus to nonbelievers.

As my mother used to say, "sweep around your own front door before you start about mine" and remember too, for every fault you find in me or someone else or someone else finds in you, they and you can find two in each other.

First of all, I respect the fact that you view Silver as a racist and admit that he is. He does have that right, but I also have the right to respond to his view. It is clear that the 13th. 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution speak of racial equality and make it the law. Being an Athiest is a choice, and although I do not agree with Mike's view, it is a religious freedom protected by the 1st Amendment. Therefore, there are Amendments that make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, but the freedom to view God (or lack of God) is protected, just as it protects one to be a Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist or Christian. Just as I do not discriminate against any people of different religious beliefs, I follow the rule of the Constitutiion in regard to racial equality and believe it is right. That is the difference.

Arnold, being a racist is a choice too and I could have given the same argument for Silver as you did for Mike. You get so wrapped up in the Constitution protecting race that you forget it protects Silver's right to express and might I add freely, his opinions on race, or anything, just as you and I have the same right. Silver's not breaking any laws by being a racist on here and voicing his opinions. You conveniently overlooked Mike's constant attacks on women and women too, are a protected class. So I guess we can just use the same argument for Silver's racism, Mike's religious freedom (which he's entitled to) and also his discrimination against women. The weakness I see in you on a personal level is you allow the Constitution to be your moral compass and if you're a christian, you would allow the Bible to be. I don't badger Mike about not believing, but being a christian I have attempted to discuss the Bible and salvation with Mike and he doesn't want it, so I don't waste my time. There are plenty of people who have never heard the Word and would be more than willing to accept, so why waste my time on someone who heard, formed his beliefs and doesn't want any part of it. I've never seen you once call Mike out on the Bible and it's not because of his freedom to believe or not to believe, you're cowardly about approaching him. Remember the scripture you gave me earlier about the goats and lambs, well flip on over to Matthew 28: 18-20 and read about the The Great Commission. Nowhere in those scriptures did Jesus say check with someone else, the Constitution etc, before sending out his disciples to preach the Word.

Arnold, if you can make it right for Mike to have religious freedom and you respect it because it's covered under the Constitution, then don't double standard, give Silver his right to racism whether you agree with it or not because technically he's covered by freedom of speech, just as Mike is covered by freedom of religion. If you're going to live by the Constitution, don't do it like the Bible and cherry pick the parts that suit your arguments.

Where have I ever prohibited Silver from his right to his racist views or said that he doesn't have this right? I have never hindered his right to speak freely. I simply call him out over his view, and he should be able to defend it. I am sorry, I haven't observed Mike's opposition to women, so you may point me out an example. I have heard him say that the things written by Paul were outdated, but I have never seen any discrimination he has expressed against women. Give me an example. Witnessing to others is through your life more than through your words. So, in that respect I do witness. I do it everyday. I am not afraid to call out anyone, but the fact remains that politically I agree more with Mike than I do with you and Silver. I think he is much more fair and wants equality for all people than either of you, therefore, I am more in line with his view. Don't you cherry pick your scriptual view of homosexuals?

No, I am absolutely not comparing Silver to Hitler or Stalin. I am asking Bacon if she respects Hitler and Stalin for standing up for their beliefs as she does Silver in the same way he stands up for his because she said that is what she admired about him.

Respect should not be confused with tolerance, since tolerance doesn't necessarily imply subordination to one's qualities but means treating as equal.
