“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions…for safety on the streets…for child care, for social welfare…for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.

If someone says, “Oh, I’m not a feminist,” I ask, “Why, what’s your problem?”

It will be interesting to watch how the Prog-Libs react when their 3-card Monte game is realized. If anyone is interested in who the real racists in America are, follow the money. Their are folks getting very wealthy by maintaining racial discord in this country.

How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!

Baseless accusations with no support or sources. Nothing to look at here, folks.  Move along to posts that have facts and sources to support them.

Common sense and observation are very good sources.

It was a funny stand up bit.  Until you take the money out of the business of "racism" we will never be able to get past race.  Political leaders, church leaders, business man, and civil leaders all make a lot of money off people whom feel victimized(some true victims others only victims of their own illusion).

Hi Kwinters. 


We all know comedians are meant to be funny, not accurate. This guy is funny. The truth about so called whites being able to travel back into anytime and have it good is definitely laughable to the serious historian or world history buff. With so many movies documenting eras of European history, this comedian could easily rematerialize in one of those cages they had ready for English commoners who were shipped over to America as the first slaves. Somehow, many so called whites seem to forget those moments in history as if slavery was exclusively a so called black experience. And, that is easy to do when the American educational systems remain warped to perpetuate institutional racism. To the intelligent American idividual, institutional racism is an intellectual pestilant of ignorance that perpetuates ignorant behaviors and pathological beliefs like racial supremacy. Anyhooooooooo.....


Personally, as an American with above standard reading comprehension, all Americans have rights and privileges as US Citizens. The issue is more about white preference and preferential treatment which is facilitated by the racist teachings in many religions, historical perspectives and white supremacist delusions. American privilege belongs to all Americans regardless of so called race, gender, or religion, unless that religion sow the mental poisons of racial supremacy whereby the infected use their racial preference for white black  or whatever to deny their fellow Americans their Constitutionally protected and guaranteed privileges. Ever wonder why people want to undermine and misinterpret the Constitution?
