Is it disrespectful not to stand for the National Anthem?

I guess it's okay at home.

Thing is, you/we may not feel very strongly about respecting the National Anthem. But others do.

So it isn't to respect the National Anthem we stand, but to respect the feelings of those around us.

I'm pretty sure this sort of basic civility was taught in most British schools when we were kids, wasn't it Barca?

Heard the gist of it. Some parts might be worth opening to debate on their own merits such as the infrastructure proposal but a lot of it makes me want to slap AOC up the head with a cast iron skillet slapstick style. Either she's the worst communicator in the world (which says a lot more about New Yorkers...) or she's positively brain dead at actually thinking things through.

So since we should stand for the National Anthem, to respect the feelings of those around us, even if we don't personally share (or even understand) those feelings...

...Why would we not extend the same degree of civility and respect, to those who have strong feelings about "blackface"?

Because dey is black?

Hmmm...

I'd the think the answer is extremely simple. Black face was used in the past because black people weren't allowed to ... or accepted as actors. That was bad. Everyone that isn't a racist would agree with that. Now a days in a society that fully accepts that people should be treated equally (except for an extreme minority) the only times you see black face is because it is integral to the story. It's intent isn't to exclude black people or ridicule them...it is because the plot wants to show a white person experiencing life as a black person. Likewise with white face. That is perfectly acceptable and not being done for racist purposes. When people put on black/white face for a Halloween costume ...are they doing it in the spirit of Halloween or doing it to be racist? At the end of the day regardless of intent the perception is what counts. So when you do it you're putting yourself out there to potentially be perceived as a cunt. Same with standing for the anthem. If you don't do it cause you can't or there's no one around...who cares...if you're doing it cause you want to bring awareness over an issue...well that may be your intent but you can't control the perception...and good chunk of anthem loving people are going to perceive you as a cunt...and now you get to deal with that.

lol, so apparently AOC much celebrated New Green Deal was so derided they’re now in full spin mode.


Claims that the document was a fake and/or Republicans WIDELY circulated a doctored version. Or they just accidentally posted an early work in progress version by accident.

Then they sent this demented looking fucker, and yes that not just a bad shot of him, to Fox News to say everything you heard was fake.

Did you review the Democrat's "Green New Deal" in any detail? The thing could have been written by a High School student in between bong loads.

It has a whole lot of retarded shit in there like banning all carbon fuel within 10 years. That means no more flying among other things. They also want to eliminate "farting cows".

The Democrats are working overtime to get Trump re-elected in 2020.

Fixed. :D

Defeating Trump will be easy but if this is the agenda I have to contend with from Democrats in 2020, defeating them will be even easier.

Democrats continue to fuck themselves in the ass.

Also, why is Elizabeth Warren running? What a joke.

Trump for another 6 years it is!

Maybe not 2020 hope full Corey Booker aka “Spartacus” was out this weekend ranting about the virtues of the Grren New Deal when a reporter with a heavy accent asked him a question. Corey replied in Spanish to show how progressive he really is. The reporter said I don’t speak Spanish, I’m Swiss, to which Cory responded back, oh sorry I don’t speak Swiss..... III/O

So Jeff Bezos beloved of the left and foe of Trump got busted cheating on his wife and now going to pay the biggest alimony in history not to mention loosing half of the biggest fortune in history.

So then the national enquirer tries to black mail Jeff Bezos by treating to release dick pics and he’s just like fuck that. So the media start celebrating the guy calling him Bezos Bear.

Image


I’m mean good call for him for not giving into blackmail, but come the fuck on all this shit happened because he’s a scum bag who cheated on his wife and got busted. Leftists rags that call them selves media outlets are cellibrating how Bezos Bear kicked the blackmailers right in the nuts!

Why’s the lest always want to see violence these days, anyways they should be celebrating this assholes wife for just hitting the lottery in this deal.

Anyway Bezos Bear and his spokes people are on mainstream media saying, we don’t think the cell phone actually got hacked and dick pics stollen, our experts are saying it could have been the government spying (ordered by Trump)

If so I that inexcusable and Trump has to go, reguadless that Obama and company did all types of underhanded spying on everyone.

So the media runs with that, apprears the Trump administration spied and leaked on Bezos Bear to try to silence him, but Bezos Bear fought back.

Turns out the brother of the guys mistress leaked that shit cause the family’s mad that scum bag Bezos is a home wrecker or some such thing.

Meanwhile no retraction by the mainstream media that they got the whole Trump angle wrong.... :-$ best let people keep thinking it, the sooner Trump will be out of office.
