He doesn't understand that. He subscribes to the collective mentality that everyone in a group is identical, which is why he came to us looking for answers.

I like trolling them with sensible argument. Call it counter trolling.

No, he came to us to validate his own confirmation bias

So I ask, what's this all about? If you claim to be a die hard conservative why are there such harsh feelings against anyone that isn't Christian? Why would you want to censor speech, even if its not favorable to your political party? Why do conservatives allow this behavior within their party?
Islam is not a religion. It's a political and financial ideology wrapped up in a veil of religion.

"So I ask, what's this all about? If you claim to be a die hard conservative why are there such harsh feelings against anyone that isn't Christian? Why would you want to censor speech, even if its not favorable to your political party? Why do conservatives allow this behavior within their party? "

There are radicals in every group (radical: someone who decides violence will solve the problem faster)
Christians are not against every other religion..just the religions that would rather kill us than debate with us.
Conservatives/Christians for the most part are able to understand what actions of others will help or hurt mankind in the future.

We do not want to censor speech. Others can speak of treason against America/we can't stand to hear it, but at least we know what their agenda is.
There are also rules/laws against public outrage:
No to yelling fire in a public building because you feel like doing so.
No to yelling F**K You in a public place because you feel like doing so.
No to inciting a riot in order to destroy the property of others.
No to outright lies by persons or the Media to destroy a person or group (sadly it is allowed).

It is called freedom of speech within a group, even if it is obnoxious and should be stopped But that goes back to radicals: someone always wants to get what isn't theirs/gain power/etc.
We should be able to censure people who express radical ideas and threats.
Sometimes we just do not have the b***s to confront troublemakers within our own group.

Example: Conservative with no prior offences; Guns/"Come and get mine...see what happens! (If you don't value your life)"
Example: Leftist with no prior offences; "any fight over (2A) firearms would be a short one because the federal government has an extensive cache of nuclear weapons (at my disposal)"

Let's be real...we understand what is said between the lines. And NO...…...neither person is kidding/making an idle threat/they mean what they say, even if they lie about the "original intent".

This.

The lack of a real answer should be a glaring hole in what you all "stand" for. The GOP is a joke in this modern era. Used to stand for something at least.
yep, insults are a great way to start a real discussion.

I do not think you got 'right-leaning' answers, you got objectivity and objections to your conclusion(s), and such upsets you.
plus, he is obviously a douche

An no, I was looking for a genuine conversation around this phenomenon. There are a few people I know that have this selective rights justification syndrome that always seem to vote R.
maybe toss a few more insults.

Yeah. That was you that did that.
yep. I believe that is called bigotry.

Nothing desperate sounding in the slogans you quoted about the pickup truck, just a few basic opinions and facts you could have ignored without harm. If you ever tried driving a pickup truck you might learn they are pleasant, guy was probably enjoying his day.

But what does sound desperate is you trying to somehow corner "conservatives" into saying something they didn't. "Straining, straining some more, and still straining" should not be the calling card of liberals. Get yourself a pickup truck, listen to some good country music and quit that pathetic straining.



Just curious, do you think the freedom and luxury of western civilizations should be extended to Muslims from other parts of the world, so they can then grow to a position of strength that allows them to impose sharia law? That is the well documented history.

First, why do you think conservatives are christians ? They could be Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim or just plain Vanilla or Chocolate.
Second, if a hick or a dick wants to drive around with stupid **** on their truck and tell the world they're an idiot how does this make him a conservative ? You are sure assuming a lot based on what you stated.
Also you're assuming the guy is less a man than you because he has stupid **** on his truck. Maybe you're completely wrong and it's his Grandmothers ( who happens to be Puerto Rican and part Cherokee Indian) truck.
So instead of making assumptions about someone based on what you see and do not know, how about just shaking your head that there is stupid **** on a truck you see.
Actually, I thought to be a Liberal was a person who just let people be regardless ? That surely doesn't seem the case with you though.

You want an answer...here it is...both parties have goofballs who are way out there on the fringes....actually, all the other parties have them as well...you paint with a very broad brush and come in here for what reason I don't know...yes, this is a fairly conservative forum...so what...you knew that ...my take is you are looking to stir **** up by masquerading as a con looking for an honest answer...you are entitled to your own opinion but you are not entitled to your own facts...

So do I.

I have a problem with Muslims religious beliefs and practices, such as Sharia Law, stoning women to death, tossing homosexuals off rooftops, beheading tourists, burning people alive, the sort.

What's the problem?

Where in what you wrote does it indicate the owner of the truck had harsh feelings against anyone that was not Christian? Where there anti Jewish, Buddist, Seik, Jehovah Witness or atheist stickers on his truck? Or did he just have a problem with the religion that promotes the oppression and enslavement of women, killing of homosexuals and anyone else who is not muslim?

So the GOP is now a joke because of a decal on a random pick up truck. Do you even realize how dumb that sounds and how hypocritical you are? You are accusing people of stereotyping and discrimination while stereotyping and discriminating. Thanks for the laugh.
