34. Why do you think a lot of conservatives are so receptive to stern father types on cable news and talk radio?

I’m not even going to try. John Hawkin’s answer is classic. Scroll down to number 14.

Okay, it’s better than being receptive to bleeding heart mommy types.

Why do conservatives assume that black people’s views on society are a result of brainwashing?

18. Why do conservatives assume that Black people’s views on society are a result of brainwashing by the left rather than by our own experience?

The ridiculously short answer? Because they keep voting for politicians and leaders that promote programs that have been shown not to work; programs that don’t help them, and in the long run hurts them. Yet they keep voting for the same programs, and the same leaders. We throw more and more money at the problems they want fixed, but there’s no sign of improvement.

And black people that think outside the box, and try to persuade others to try something different? They’re traitors; Uncle Toms.

If that doesn’t sound like brainwashing I don’t know what does.

Hate Speech and the First Amendment

A lot of people think hate speech is not protected by the First Amendment, but it is. Unfortunately, so is their ignorant speech.

Actually, I think protecting “hate” speech is the reason the First Amendment exists in the first place. The very idea is to protect unpopular speech from government harassment and censorship, especially since a lot of what qualifies as hate speech these days, isn’t, and needs saying more often. For example:

Jesus is the ONLY way to Heaven.

They keep using the word “hate,” but it doesn’t mean what they think it means.

17. Also, does it bother you that tiny #s of richest people have the same wealth as bottom half of entire world pop?

Not at all. I don’t care what or how much other people have. That’s their business, not mine. It doesn’t affect me, and quite frankly, it doesn’t affect you either. The whole idea that we should care what others have reeks of jealousy.

The fact that some people have nothing, isn’t because someone else has more. It’s much more complicated than that, and taking from the rich isn’t going to solve the situation. It a situation that doesn’t need a solution.
