This is the paradox of tolerance. The more we tolerate intolerance, the more we gradually approach, and eventually are destroyed by intolerance.

The intolerant man says meet me in the middle. The tolerant man takes a step forward. The intolerant man takes a step backwards and says meet me in the middle. The tolerant man takes a step forward. Etc until the tolerant man has far overstepped his original ideologies into where the intolerant man originally stood.

Therefore the only logical stance for a tolerant society is to be wholly intolerant of intolerance.

I used to run alcohol studies at a university where the subjects were alcohol dependent. I had a woman come in with her boyfriend who was openly verbally abusing her in front of everyone. Mind you, these studies are confidential and its very uncommon to have someone show up with another person.

The boyfriend grabbed her arm aggressively and they sat down on the waiting chairs. I asked the woman if she was X and then asked her to join me so I could take her baseline measures (heart rate, BP, etc.) the guy immediately gets up to follow and I told him he needed to remain there. He got verbally aggressive with me and tried to grab his girlfriend again, but ended up complying.

When I had her in the other room I asked her if everything was alright and she said no. That her boyfriend has been abusing her and she doesn’t know what to do. We kept her in a separate room for about an hour until the police showed up. The whole time he was growing impatient and we told him to wait. Finally the police came and took him away.

homie, racism is a right-wing ideology, it is part of right-wing positions like Fascism or white supremacy, that is why you generally won't find it on the left because the left is about progressivism, making progress and moving society forward, while conservatism is about conserving things as they are or advocating for going back to older times, which is why you will find the majority of racism on the right as it is what makes up right-wing ideologies

and even if you find examples of some racist people that consider themselves left, that is an anomaly and i guarantee you as a leftist, racists like nazbols and wokescolds are HEAVILY ostracized from online left discourse and if you look at left positions, none are pro racism.

however, a core belief in modern day American conservatism is being anti-BLM, how they focus on the very few riots that took place instead of the statistics and studies prove over and over how black people are discriminated against by the justice system while the left focuses on it to fix it, it really doesn't seem like right-wingers are the not racist ones

There wont be justice. 99 out of 100 there is never justice. There are appeasements to slow down the public outrage, but once the public eye is fixated on the next issue, you learn years later that the lady of justice is blindfolded for a reason. And its not to judge the weight of the evidence. But to allow the system to control the scales themselves.

Out of all these high profile cases over the last ten years, only one got time and that was ONLY because there was a bystander recording the event and he ADMITTED guilt. Can we be certain it would not be a second mistrial, or evidence ending up missing, or jury tamperings...source declaring him innocent or giving him a bullshit time served with home confinement?

How many cases can we assume exist of such events as above but there is no video recording of it.


PS: Did you know that some police unions have biannual automatic scrubbing of any misconduct, lawsuits and reports against police, that police have special provisions in state Law Enforcement Officers' Bills of Rights laws that:

  • allow officers to wait 48 hours or more before being interrogated after an incident

  • prevent investigators from pursuing other cases of misconduct revealed during an investigation

  • prohibit civilians from having the power to discipline, subpoena or interrogate police officers

  • state that the Police Chief has the sole authority to discipline police officers

  • enable officers to appeal a disciplinary decision to a hearing board of other police officers

  • enable officers to use the contract grievance process to have an outside arbitrator reverse disciplinary decisions and reinstate officers who have committed misconduct

  • prevent an officer from being investigated for an incident that happened 100 or more days prior

  • allow an officer to choose not to take a lie detector test, require the civilian who is accusing that officer of misconduct to pass a lie detector first, or prevent the officer's test results from being considered as evidence of misconduct

Make no mistake, the ONLY path forward for this unique case of USA Police Force that is systematically rooted in corruption, is not to demand they control their own. Its to defund them, and create a new force that will slowly replace the police. Because the police unions themselves will never give up any power, not an inch because it means loss of profit for them. It has to be taken away from them.

Anti-intellectualism is how we've gotten to this point. The fact that they refer to colleges and universities as "liberal indoctrination centers" says it all. They know they're stupid, it's a point of pride and in their ideal world you'd be just as stupid.

Because in 2021's Trump-dominated Right wing political scene, only a stupid person willing to substitute evidence-based reality for whatever conspiratorial nonsense they find on YouTube is going to walk into that ballot booth and check the box for the rotating cast of morons the Right is trying to get elected.

Deserves a shit more than that. There’s no way to really describe what effect it has on you to have a slur thrown at you. You can live your whole life ticking every box you were told to, having generally decent interactions with people, skirting around the bad ones so as not to make a scene, and that’s all reduced to nothing in a moment when someone calls you a ‘monkey’ ...

The poor guy is gonna be fucking rattled. Racially abused then banged in the head from behind. That’s the kind of shit that’ll make you tear up and have a breather in the bathroom.

Meh, say what you will but I wouldn't judge you for something in full if it was your mother. I for one had to deal with it, my mother being abused and I wasn't able to do anything about it being only 5yrs old. That's my mama, you get one and only one. It's easy to judge someone when you're watching them in such a different mindset than normally. Something like this, people see red and yeah, that's my mama. There are people out here that would have put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, I'd say he got off pretty lucky all things considered.
