    Eh, it's still indicative of the ever growing narrative being pushed by far lefters that violence and hate is totally A-OK as long as it's directed at white men.

    Seriously, is there another racial/ethnic/gender group where it has become so acceptable to say you hate them?

    It's like, the basis of socio-political studies in universities now.
    Yeah, conservative media's been pushing this line since at least 1992 and I don't think it's any less of a distraction now than it was then. I mean, I'm sure you can find someone who's said they hate straight white men as a whole, but those comments don't matter. Similarly, I'm less worried about individual racists, misogynists, and homophobes than I am about structural racism, misogyny, and homophobia. On the other hand, structural anti-white racism, misandry, and heterophobia doesn't exist, in America or anywhere else. At different times in my life I've been considered white and I've been considered non-white based on where I was living, so I can say definitively: White privilege is amazing. It makes life so much easier when people think of you as a straight white male. So quit your complaining and enjoy that sweet white privilege while it lasts (which is probably going to be a very, very long time).

    There's no danger of that. Shit status may still be in question though.

    And as he lay there
    Playing games with his pain
    He felt his choice of jobs
    Was such a mistake
    He could have been a doctor
    In a soft easy chair
    Instead he chose three stars
    A territorial affair

    Why is Trump trying to start shit with Iran now?
    I'm not being dramatic, I just feel like I'm going to throw up my heart and my head is going to fly away like a bird.
