Examples of "fine" slavery

The one where the slaves have to wear dentures, for one.

Not my fault: Not my problem: not my monkey: not my circus! 

Today';s "civil rights" movement has morphed into a tyranny of the minority (any minority) over the majority!  Americans ought to place their identities as American far above the tribalism being fed to us by the political class and the media!

United the United States stands (perhaps forever).  By dividing us into opposing groups, the Marxists plan to have a successful coup.

It seems to me this is no longer a mode of politics found solely on the left.

The right has gotten in on the SJW game as well.

You see it in the MGTOW movement. You see it in the fear mongering about immigrants, gays and Muslims.

And then there is that stuff about "white" genocide.

I agree.  The labeling of political opponents as "Racists" has created a GOP full of cowards who pander for cover from the heat and seem to run right out of the kitchen!  The "some of my best friends are negros" ain't going to work.  Americans are sick of the cowardly political correctness and failure of those being attacked to stand up and hit back.  This had a lot to do with Donald Trump being elected.

It hasnt just created cowards or people virtue signaling about their black friends.

It has created a victim mentality on the right as well. With white males being the chief victim class.

It has created a new identity movement, or perhaps it is more accurate to say it has helped resurrect an old one.

And yes, this definitely had something to do with Trump getting elected. We are seeing the right capitulate to the SJW worldview, and adopt it as it's own.

The days of colorblind conservatism or compassionate (cosmopolitan) conservatism seem to be on the way out.

I think the avg white male doesn't care. He doesn't cater to race baiter. He just works, pays taxes, and care for himself and family.

No doubt that is true.

But a growing number are flirting with some very dangerous ideologies. Charlottesville showed us that.

Actually, that's not true.  If a slave owner was raping his female slave, that was not considered rape since the slave was his property.

Bed wench. It was the property's job. Plus the owner could make new and free slaves.
