I assume you don't agree with school districts that have banned or suppressed the novel due to its use of racist terms.

 

I.e. that this anti-white supremacy novel is being blacklisted by those that should welcome and praise an anti-white supremacy novel.

great point! poor huck finn. liberals wanna silence him. :D

fundamentalist christians have been dealing with that attitude from hollywood and the news media for decades.

 

they wanted a strong horse pill and we gave it to them. now the other side can choke on their own petard for a while.

the conservative right has human feelings too.  :lol:

" As the government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded upon the Christian religion;

As it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims;"






Treaty of Tripoli, 1797



Signed by John Adams, The 2nd President of the United States of America


Ratified Unanimously Without Debate by The United States Senate

 

The statement that US law has 'no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims' is false.    E.g. honor killing,  **** one's wife or attacking gays (legal practices in many Islamic lead nations) are all illegal under US law.

 

Clearly not being able to do these things in the USA upsets the tranquility of the very small number of Muslims that wish to do such things.

" It does not take a saintly amount of Compassion or Empathy to feel for those who are Struggling to Stay Alive, who are worried for the Fate of Family and Friends and who have seen so much that they have Known and Loved Blown and Washed Away.

You (trump) swore to 'Faithfully Execute the Office of the President of the United States' and

That means a responsibility to look out for all Americans,

Even if they live in an island on the ocean,

Or look different or even speak a different language than what you think is America...


I do not believe ' blame-the-victim ' is what Americans expect of their president. "
