the muslims have declared on us. you do know this, don't you?
guy, when we went into kuwait, we could have kept the oil there. but we didn't. and the same goes for iraq. we could use that oil to finance all the money we are spending over there. but we are not.
like I said, and I repeat.. get off the drugs. and you will know this.
They attacked us on 9-11 because we have been meddling in the Middle East ever since they discovered they were sitting on top of massive oil fields in the 20's, 30's, & 40's. Of course most of the oil companies to originally develop those fields were American or British.

We didn't keep the oil only because we pretend we're not a colonial power. So instead we "help" then ensure a steady supply of oil flows to us.

If not for the oil, we wouldn't be there.

Would you insult them by saying they do not yet walk upright? That would either be a monkey, an ape or some sort of pre-human species, like a Neanderthal.(Or do you know of another reason to make such a comment?) I'm sure you'll supply a dandy explantion, but the racial undercurrent is quite evident. It's not the "n" word, true, but rather a more subtle, but equally vile, racism.
Think about it before you add more denials. It'll take some time, but I'm pretty sure I can find your comment. Your pal NTR wrapped herself into a pretzel of admissions, denials, further admissions and finally flat out lied over a similar comment.(She wasn't there, she was but it didn't happend, ok it happened but nobody was upset, etc, etc.) The offending incident she skirmed about was found and reposted.
Everybody screws up. Being liberal doesn't mean you are now allowed to use racial insults when somebody disagrees with you. Lying about it is more damning than the original mistake.
I'm frankly getting a bit tired of this, but I'll try one last time. I do not deny using the "walking upright" crack. I've used it more than once. But associating that phrase with anything racial says more about your problem with race than with anything on my mind. I usually use it when corresponding with someone who has the brain of a mushroom.
I don't associate primitive life forms with black people, most of whom I believe are a bit quicker than you. All in all, I am an equal opportunity insulter. You might even have earned a place on my list of targets.

I think that's what happened in the first place. That guy from the islands said something you disagreed with and you shot right back with some racially demeaning comment without thinking it through.
Does that sound like you? I think it does. You're not helping your case by continuing to fly off the handle.
There is no "case", plant life. You see, you're probably white, but I have come to see you as a vegetable. Tata.

guy, if it was all about the oil, we could control all the oil in the world if we really wanted to.

there is no reason to pretend that we're not a colonial power if we have the means to annihilate anyone and everyone who opposed us.

and we did have that power when we first invented the atom bomb back in 1945. nobody can dispute that we could have conquered the world back then since we were the only ones to have it until 1949.

let me repeat... get off the drugs. they are not doing you any good where your brains are concerned.

Of course we could attempt to control the world, but we pretend we are no longer a colonial power.

We pretend to support "democracy" around the world, so we can't just take the oil by force.

That said, we'll do whatever is necessary to ensure the oil keeps flowing. This was just the lastest salvo in the war for oil; wait until India & China are buying up every drop of middle east oil they can get their hands on. That's when the crap will really hit the fan and all pretense of "supporting democracy" will go out the window.

Which ties in with what I thought: You're not a racist. But ou regularly insult people due to your hot temper, lack of civility and incredible boorishness. You knew the guy was black, but thought that comparing him to an ape or a Neanderthal was just fine & dandy because you're a liberal, therefore nobody should suspect any racial undercurrents. That's a novel theory. Why don't you start Topix thread entitled: "Libs Now Cleared to Insult Minorities"?
I accept your explanation. As for that other garbage about how if somebody points out the racial connection that's due to their own racism, that's just beyond pathetic. Here's a thought: try not to just fire off insults without thinking them through. And when you do make an error, just apologize. I can easily use your own words to perform that simple task: "Island Sir, I apologize. I don't associate primitive life forms with black people." I think I'd leave out the part about how you believed he "has the brain of a mushroom", as it would tend to make the apology seem insincere.
As with NTR, you've been twisting yourself into a pretzel trying to avoid responsibility. First it never happened, then it did but not like I said, and now you suddenly remember the incident (sort of), but no racism existed except in the minds of others. What a dance around the truth! You'd put to shame a troop of whirling dervishes.
I don't think you're a racist. You're just arrogant and reckless, traits anyone can have regardless of their political bent. You do seem to think that being liberal innoculates you against having to worry about the sensitivities of others. How you came by that understanding of liberalism is beyond me. I can't say I've seen it too often.
Your blame-shifting, however, is pure Obama (minus the Bush references). So if you called a female poster a "bitch" and I pointed it out as a gender biased insult, that'd make ME intolerant because the thought, instigated by your insensitivity, was now in MY mind. Really? That's sophistry on steroids.
By that reasoning the Island Gentleman was the racist! Right after you insulted him he complained about having been compared to an ape or a monkey by you. So it was HIS assumptions about race that caused him to be upset?!?! You are so full of it.
I think I will see if I can find the exchange between you and him, as it'd throw some light onto this subject that's now lacking. And perhaps end all this tap dancing you're doing.
Just two pints:

1-You have all the analytical ability of a matzoball.
2-You talk too much.

Analysis? You flatter me (and yourself). This was simple really: did you or did you not use a racially-charged insult? It seems you did, but by mistake, because you use it all the time, because you're a nasty asshole. Conclusion: You're not a racist, you're just a jerk! I accept that.
We need "analysis" to get that from you? The only reason this got so convoluted is because you wanted to lie, spin, deny and deflect. That was all YOU. I had nothing to do with it.
I am still looking for the original post. Then we'll let your own words, and your victim's response, tell the story. Fair enough?
(Oh, and please don't go with that crap about how if he took offense, it's because the racism was in HIS mind, not yours, cause you're a liberal. That's really just too idiotic to rehash.)
Fair enough. And stick your unhinged analysis where the sun don't shine.

I don't see how you can compare discussions with the tea party with discussions with iran?

for one thing, iran has declared war on us. they follow a religion that has declared war on all non-muslims. said religion has also mandated the extermination of the jews.

they kill people over movies, books, and cartoons.

they have suicide bomb squads in their army.

where's the comparison?

I was thinking of course about World War II, when meat was rationed, and you needed to build up "points" in your ration book. Now go back to the sandbox, Blunty.

You seem a little suspicious there yourself, Parthy. But sending a drone to you would seem redundant.
