    My point is that there is a myopia of focus on particular sins of particular persons, sins conceived as such generally long after the era of analysis (obviously there were contemporary criticisms of slavery and colonialism, but they were marginal rather than celebrated as today). Just as the Aztecs probably left their spectacles of human sacrifice to go home and love their families, so to did Spaniards brutally extract gold from the hills through slave labor and write letters back home lamenting the distance. But one is a curiosity in the history of the Oppressed and the other is Most Vile.

    The reality is that, as with anything else, actions involve any number of tradeoffs. The sorts of processes which would drive exploration of the seas drove exploration in other areas as well, and exploration of new physical spaces is probably done by less cautious and conscientious persons. This leads to both the killing of "found" persons as well as providing them schools and medicine. It's a lose-lose situation too: had the Europeans simply "stayed home" all this time, one can easily imagine Leftists pushing a white-mans-burden afresh, like they currently do anyway with calls for global redistribution.

    Probably not, much to the dismay of much of the media.

    But they like to try and take credit for all kindsa things that they had no hand in, and people that want to believe that it's true will continue to do so.

    The setup was too perfect.

    It was a coordinated effort by muslim terrorists and hard lefties.

    The man in the hotel room was just their fall guy. Wake up sheeple!

    Are you two talking about the attack in Canada? If so, he had an ISIS flag in his vehicle.

    No, Vegas.

    And before you get angsty, I wasn't just attacking 'the right'. I hate the way fucktards on both sides immediately jump to conclusions about who mass murderers are.

    I like how the new angle for the current year is to connect the 2nd Amendment to being about killing blacks.

    The 2nd Amendment was written 226 years ago. The Founding Fathers didn't write it with the intention of ex-slaves having access to firearms. We need common sense gun laws that prohibit ownership by the demographic most disproportionately affected by gun violence.

    The more obvious racist response, but of course they miss it.

    Okay.

    Anyway, are people saying the shooter was a Muslim or something?

    You need to get away from Twitter. :D

    You double post so often, I'm worried about your mental state.

    Nobody talks to you about anything actually, because you're incapable of having a conversation, discussion or debate about something.

    You're like a propaganda-spewing bot with the personality of a poor man's Seth MacFarlane.

    he's taking a lunch break. Probably enjoying his favorite dish .... noodles with poodles.

    Honestly though, i think he just might go away if we all stop responding to him.

    He's literally here to annoy you guys, he posts no where else... so yeah, I'd imagine he might leave if you quit giving him the time of day.
