Liberalism is a waste of time and manpower.

I really am sorry to anyone this may offend but I may as well just be honest and hope that you’re secure enough to handle this accusation.

Liberals claim to be the voice for minorities and all that shit, when really all they do is cause violence, block traffic (including emergency vehicles, like the ambulance who was on its way to save a child who later died due to the delay), and stonewall everyone who disagrees with them, and then claim that it’s somehow a good thing because it somehow helps ease the false narrative that they continually perpetuate, despite it being disproven, time and time again.

[i]What’s got me so upset right now?[/i] Nothing but the fact that, despite being “the voice for minorities”, liberals relentlessly discriminate against the mentally ill by claiming bullshit like, “mass shootings are caused by mental illness in white people”. I can’t find the statistic right now, but mentally ill people are actually only responsible for something very low, like 2% of violent crimes. This statistic has been out forever, but that doesn’t mean anything to liberals. They still narrate that mentally ill people are loose cannons, and insinuate that they need to be locked up because they’re dangerous.

Did you read that statistic? Yeah, that makes mentally ill people VICTIMS. Not perpetrators.

Thanks to liberalism and their blatant lies, EVERYONE’S life is harder, especially that of white people, Christians, men, and the mentally ill. But most of all: EVERYONE! Take a fucking bow.

'Kay, first let's clean up a little of this word vomit, all right? Now let's break down some of your rant.

"Liberals" didn't block an ambulance; disorderly protesters did that, and they can belong to any faction. Nor would such an action be condoned by progressively thinking people.

What false narrative is being perpetuated, and by whom? What's so clever about it that the American public is apparently buying it?

Liberals [i]en masse[/i] are rarely so homogenous they all think exactly the same thing, and certainly the large majority of them don't believe mental illness is responsible for all gun violence...any more than the percentage of any group believes it. [i]People[/i] are upset the mentally ill can obtain firearms, not the whole of any one group. And we all watch Dateline - everyone's aware mental illness has far less to do with murder than jealousy.

I don't know what set your target on liberalism, but I do wonder how much you even understand the complexities of the term and what it stands for. At the very least, 3rd grade should have taught you that generalizing a population is dangerous and usually proven foolish.

[@6578,HoraceGreenley] You must be a conservative to have that degree of mental impairment.
SolveEtCoagula · 31-35, F
[@6578,HoraceGreenley] Oh stop crying, you jumped in on a conversation I didn't address you on and wasn't about you. Your type [b]attacks liberals all the time[/b] on here so save your fake moral outrage.

I do believe I addressed what you said with:

[quote]I've never denied that the other half of Trump's base are the working class[/quote]

So no I never "did" or "said" anything nor implied anything to you 😂

Yea, pretty everything you just said is NOT true about liberals.

[quote]liberals relentlessly discriminate against the mentally ill by claiming bullshit like, “mass shootings are caused by mental illness in white people”[/quote]

No liberal is saying this, while most of us understand mental illness plays a role, we are more concerned, right now, about the weapons used in these killings. Mental health issues will be long in coming, working toward getting some of these high powered rifles out of circulation is something that can be done much faster.

[@376875,Pherick] Considering the fact that they’re responsible for something like 2% of all violent crimes, yes. Saying otherwise would mean that those responsible for 98% of crimes have full gun rights while the rest don’t.
Pherick · 41-45, M
[@1695,InvaderNice] CDC data for 2014 shows 42,826 suicide deaths. I would think we could agree that committing suicide is a good indicator of mental illness. One that can be fixed with time and effort, but thats obviously pretty severe.

21,386 of those deaths were committed with firearms. So if controlling gun access to the mentally ill could help save 21,000 people a year from killing themselves, I think thats a no-brainer.
InvaderNice · 26-30, M
[@376875,Pherick] See that makes sense. I have no problem with that reasoning. It’s when people say that the mentally ill should not own guns, PURELY for the fact that they’re mentally ill—knowing nothing about it—that it bothers me.
frequentlyme · 70-79, M
So, maybe you need to put down whatever you are smoking or injecting...
InvaderNice · 26-30, M
[@657416,frequentlyme] I actually refrain from using political terms at all. This is one of the very few times I’m even addressing anyone as a “liberal”.
AncientGamer71 · 46-50, M
if Americans weren't so unhappy, I bet we wouldn't need to self medicate. if fact...if you look at the LESS oppressive drug laws in some European countries, you will knowtice that the problem isn't as predominant! [@657416,frequentlyme]

meh. were all spoze to be AMERICANS and all together but its almost like the government stages all this bullcrap to keep us all divided so we don't see the REAL bullshit they are pulling on us...just sayin.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@680007,whywontGoddeleteme] yep, yep, yep....we need to find some common ground and when we do start kicking their sorry butts to the curb and then learn a really good lesson and start hanging together like what true Americans should be doing....United we stand, divided we fall...
AncientGamer71 · 46-50, M
EXACTLY! our government likes to keep us all dumb and at each other while they pass laws to take away our rights and when that happens they blame some group of people and make these laws based of false data and statistics. [@482591,CopperCicada]
AncientGamer71 · 46-50, M
INDEED! well one of these days AMERICANS will stop buying into the bullshit, figure out the horse shit they are pulling on us and they will start losing grip on power. then shit will start getting REAL hairy :)[@16806,cherokeepatti]

Nancy Pelosi and her millions of $$$ is a good example...the liberal politicians are rich but they manipulate the poor with promises....promises don't pay the bills.

hahaha.
In case you weren't watching, POTUS '45 was just up there talking about mental illness in relation to Parkland.

[@482591,CopperCicada] What did he say?

Liberalism is a serious psychotic episode.
AncientGamer71 · 46-50, M
yeah but isn't ANY "ism"? take away the "isms" and everyone is better off.[@11432,Greenbare]
InvaderNice · 26-30, M
[@11432,Greenbare] Don’t label it that.
InvaderNice · 26-30, M
[@680007,whywontGoddeleteme] Agreed. This is one of the very few times I’ve even addressed anyone as a liberal.

Straight from the NRA. They the 'liberals' now? What color is the sky in your town?

[@619287,Jwalker] And here is your problem. You think that the mentally ill automatically belong in mental hospitals and can’t be trusted to buy a 6-pack.
[@1695,InvaderNice] That's not what I wrote. An 18 year old can buy an assault rifle but not a 6 pack of beer. Very few mentally ill people are in mental hospitals.
InvaderNice · 26-30, M
[@619287,Jwalker] You would be complaining more if an 18-year-old could buy an assault rifle AND a 6-pack.

”Very few mentally ill people are in mental hospitals”. Exactly. So it’s not as bad as you make it out to be.
It's all about money. Liberals, conservatives. DEM's GOP's. Red, blue. A big 🖕 to the plebs. Doesn't matter which congress, which POTUS. The present included.
