    Nope. Just went in and did my business and came back out. No one said boo.

    And, the disingenuous continues ....

    You deliberately ignore that many businesses reserve restroom facilities for paying customers only.

    So, conservatives must find arresting blacks for something that whites do with impunity is unacceptable.



    So, "liberal" is synonymous with "hatred, racism, bigotry, dishonesty, and general hatred for all things American, including but, not limited to, Freedom and Liberty" in our lexicon. No wonder you hate liberalism.

    Arresting black people for doing what whites can do with impunity must be the epitome of liberalism, then.

    Yes .....

    But, that's not what happened in this case and you know it.

    You are being disingenuous.

    I said I reject these people.

    I did not say I hated liberalism.

    Do not make false claims about what I have posted here.

    That would be another example of being disingenuous.

    Not exactly.

    That would not be the epitome of liberalism.

    Believing faux fabricated propaganda like:

    "hands up, don't shoot"

    And, "sitting while black" ..... would be the epitome of liberalism.

    Interesting. Liberals are the ones who go around shooting unarmed blacks who have their hands up. Liberals are the ones who arrest blacks for waiting in Starbucks without making a purchase. No doubt, it was liberals who once insisted that blacks ride in the back of the bus and use separate drinking fountains.

    Yet you don't hate "liberalism," even after having defined it that way?

    None of that happened.

    Parroting propaganda does not make if fact.

    It makes you a liberal.

    They were referred to as just Democrats at that time but, ^^^^ this comment ^^^^ would be true.

    Correct.

    The term I used was "reject".

    Cops haven't shot unarmed blacks.
    Blacks weren't arrested for waiting peacefully in Starbucks.
    Does that mean blacks weren't ever lynched?
    What does ignoring facts make you?


    Given your definition of "liberalism" I also reject it. My definition is quite a bit different, yet I still reject a large part of it.

    "Liberal", like "socialist," "conservative," "fascist," and a lot of other commonly used political terms have so many different meanings as to be meaningless. Since you love the word "disingenuous" so much, lumping every philosophy with which you disagree under one category is also disingenuous.

    Yes

    But, a general statement not relevant in context.

    No.

    They were not arrested "for waiting peacefully in Starbucks".

    They were arrested for trespassing after refusing to leave.

    Sure they were.

    White folks were lynched too.

    Propaganda is not fact.

    Presenting it as such does not make it so.

    Fair enough

    The reason I am using the word disingenuous is because I am giving you the benefit of the doubt that you are intelligent enough to see through the propaganda.

    I think you are disingenuously towing the party line by playing along here.

    This event had nothing to do with racism.

    That is ALL 100% propaganda.

    Back to the specific event: If it had nothing to do with racism, and if liberalism is supporting racism, then it must have had nothing to do with liberalism, either, not even by your definition of the term.

    The liberals are presenting a false narrative.

    They are supporting racism by claiming this event was about skin color.

    It was not.

    Just like "hands up, don't shoot" never happened.

    But, the liberals pushed a false narrative and made it about race anyway, didn't they.

    That's the difference.

    Science says your full of shit, as usual:

    https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/...ertainment/201206/conservatism-mental-illness

    "The specter of mental illness does indeed loom large over creationists, but they are not alone. Signs of psychopathology can also be seen among their political bedfellows, conservative politicians, especially when you consider a wide range of illness indicators. In his award-winning 2005 book, Dr. James Whitney Hicks discusses 50 signs of mental illness (link is external) including denial, delusion, hallucination, disordered thinking, anger, anti-social behavior, sexual preoccupation, grandiosity, general oddness, and paranoia. Now I'm no clinician, but in my (admittedly biased brown) eyes it seems that prominent Republicans have evidenced each of these ten telltale signs of mental illness over the past year:"

    Love the ignorance demonstrated by the radical racists of the right wing. It was not a narrative that "Hands Up, Don't Shoot" was referring to. It is the numbers of Blacks that had their hands up, and were shot.

    But tell us, why is it that the CEO of Starbucks recognizes that it was about skin color, and yet you can't?

    The Starbucks event was clearly about race.
    Hands up, don't shoot may not have happened as it was reported, but unarmed blacks being shot by cops has become an oft repeated event in our society.
    And pointing out racism is not racism any more than reporting a robber is robbery.

    There is nothing that indicates that the Starbucks event was about race other than the false narrative being put forth by the left and the fake news MSM.

    "Hands up, don't shoot" didn't happen.

    The Michael Brown shooting had nothing to do with cops shooting unarmed black men either.

    It .... just like the Starbucks event ... was another fabricated false narrative that was pushed by liberals and the fake news MSM.

    Fabricating hoax racial events to falsely blame one race of racial discrimination is RACISM by it's urban definition.

    I see. Are you ready to say that racism doesn't exist in the USA, or are you just talking about specific incidents?
