Chili's manager takes away a black vet's (free) meal because another patron claimed that he wasn't a "real" soldier.

You should never encourage racist behavior, guy. There is plenty of evidence out there on tape.

I mean, sure, but this is also a great way to make oneself a target.

My conflicted feelings for the old school GOP elites like the Bushes and Romneys grows by the day.

On the hand they built this and flattered it. On the other they kept a lid on it and didn't leverage the worst elements of human nature how Trump did.

A paradox for how history should judge them.

Yeah, well, Chilis doesn't serve "real" food so they should be okay with it.

To add to that, the liberals here are almost certainly more successful than the conservatives.

CBS News under fire for holding clip of Trump telling supporters not to attack minorities


So while Trump is doing the right thing the MSM is hiding it from everyone. No wonder so many people have no clue what is going on.

They aired the statement, they just didn't release it ahead of the interview. They didn't air a lot of the interview before it aired. Which is typical.

But we've produced 60 million Trump voters by ignoring these issues and just wishing they would die off. They're not going to just die off. We have to be active. Go out and make a difference.
huh wat. but they told us that trump won bc we were mean to the racists and called them racist.

I dunno, some of the conservatives like Renodoc are pretty robusto. Plus, awice is like a multimillionaire now.

Don't just yell at them, actually explain why what they said is bad, why it hurts everybody, why people of color are hurting right now, etc. Give them the information. It's up to them to provide the slightest amount of empathy, which I'm afraid is lacking in our culture on both the left and the right. I know if we want to dig ourselves out of this hole we have to find a way to access empathy.

Saw on Facebook

"I have to unfacebook for a few days. I had a patient die during a transfer last night because our ambulance was stopped by protesters and had to drive an extra 45 minutes around the blocked roads. I can't today. They can five their ****ing safety pins to my patients's fatherless 4 year old daughter.

Thoughts on this? Besides for obviously this being wrong. These protests arent peaceful when they are having this kind of impact.
