Well Screma, there's no way anyone could accuse you of prejudice.

You appear to hate everybody.

I study history too. And the example you have chosen, makes an assumption that we as a species haven't learnt a damn thing, to such an extent that we would repeat the same mistakes. Even the one's within living memory.

Which in your way of adding two and two together, and making nine! means that the price Jewish people paid, was worthless.

 I wouldn't be surprised if you would rather Trump be an utter disaster, just so you could crow that you were right all along.

 

 

What on earth are you on about. Who am I suppose to hate? I just don't live in an "everything will be ok " bubble like you seem to do.

We don't learn from history because history moves in cycles roughly equivalent to 60-100 years. That's the amount of time it takes for those who did not live through certain events to outnumber those who do. In other words WW2 ISN'T in living memory for most. And history isn't terribly interesting to many people. They don't see the relevance to things that happened in the past. 

And WTF does "the price Jewish people paid, was worthless" even mean? That it can't happen again? Spare me! Genocide has never stopped it just hasn't taken place in such a grand scale. Serbia. Rwanda...

Trump wants to build a wall along the Mexican border, register Muslims and appoint a white supremacist as his strategist. What part of any of that sounds good to you?

Honestly I despair of you sometimes. Jeez...

Will the world be safer under Trump than it would have been under Clinton? Who knows? Read one article says war with Russia is more likely and another says it was less likely! Its all speculation now.
Its a bit like Brexit nobody knows what life outside the EU will be like - there is no plan. I don't think Trump had a coherent plan either.

No. There is no plan because he never expected to win either. The transition is in complete chaos.

Funny how Obama was telling everyone how unfit for office Trump was, now he's desperately telling US allies that everything will be fine. 

Every time I hear that I hear Jews saying that wearing a yellow star will be fine and that things won't get any worse. That being moved into a ghetto will be fine, it won't get any worse. That "resettlement" won't be so bad...

 

To use such an hideous episode, currently within human memory, as an analogy to further a personal argument on an internet forum, strikes me as sick.

 

 

There is nothing sick about it. I study history. Trump just appointed a white supremacist as his strategist and you accuse me of posting to further a personal argument.

Are you fucking kidding me?

You are white, male and British and none of this affects you. As a result you either don't see the threat to minority groups, or don't want to, or simply don't care.

Muslim and Mexican kids are shitting themselves In case they get attacked at school.

But yeah, it's all going to be fine, Ric says so.

Iconoclast: sarcasm bounces off me.

If your standpoint can't stand up to scrutiny then don't put it where other people can unpick it.

I had a woman yesterday asserting that a Chrismas advert didn't have Christmas music because of political correctness. I suggested that since most music used in ads is secular then what she was actually suggesting is that there were people who might be offended by songs about bells and reindeer.

I mean come on, there are people out there spouting utter  horseshit.

Did this person admit to any confusion over that fact that every government in the EU and the European parliament itself is run by predominantly white non Muslims?

I always try to lead people through the logic fail process until the point that they stop replying. I can never know for sure but i hope that it is the point where they can no longer argue their case and a tiny lightbulb comes on.

The most concerning thing to me is the willingness to believe outright lies and cling onto them long after they have been disproven.

I don't buy the narrative of this all being the fault of the left, or the liberal elite, or neoliberalism - (which are not the same thing for a start). Since the referendum we have had the same group of people that were supposedly voting against an unpopular government now supporting the same government in trying to trigger Article 50 without the consent of parliament.

So the government, now to the right of where it was under David Cameron looks to have greater support than it did before. Why? Because it really was about who could deliver the reduced immigration that was at the bottom of this the whole time. If it was not the Tories would not be cracking themselves about losing ground to UKIP.
