Re: Ellen DeGeneres Criticized For Sitting Next to Republican George W. Bush

Why do people act like political disagreements are as inconsequential as disagreeing whether pineapple belongs on pizza or not? Your political opinions are representative of your core values and beliefs. How could a ghey person be friends with a person who thinks they don't deserve equal rights? How could a refugee from a country torn apart by US political and/or military intervention be friends with a person who thinks that they're an invader and would have them separated from their children and locked in cages? How could a poor diabetic who can't afford his insulin be friends with a person who says "I don't want my taxes to go to paying for other people's healthcare"?

Politics aren't inert, they have life and death consequences for a lot of people.

It is a non story, it's a story about celebrities.

The overall discussion about whether you can be friends with war criminals when you paint yourself as a social justice warrior like Ellen is still legit to have.
Seeing as people are conflating just having friends with people with other opinions and being friends with those who actively seek, in some form to restrict your rights and /or bombed hundreds of thousands of civilians illegally.

U and I disagree on climate change. We're still friends. I think the long term potential of friendships making someone more likely to reconsider or even soften their political opinions over time can't be overlooked.

I think this is relevant to this thread:



(Yes, lots of terrible little stereotypes depicted in this comic but I think that its message it superior to the microaggression of poor stereotyping).

Indeed, but just as an FYI, if the day comes and you are guilty of bombing innocent civilians I'm severing all ties .

Fair enough.

Unfortunately I don't blame Ellen and others of being completely brainwashed to see their favorite dictators as not dictators though. It's part of American propaganda and has been since the 30's to not see America as perpetrating war crimes around the world. The indiscriminate bombing of civilians was the primary method of choice of the allies to win their part of WWII and Americans are the only ones who dropped an atom bomb. None of those atrocities were seen as criminal acts and were re-sold to the american public as justified -- a trend that continues to this day. Is a brainwashed public really guilty when it's not even wilful ignorance and just an acceptance of reality as it is?

At the same time, sure, it's easy for people on the left to call Bush a war criminal.

How often do most of them say the same about Obama without turning on someone like me for even bringing it up simply because it hurts to think of THEIR personal dear leader as a war criminal. I mean, I'm sure someone is already thinking "whataboutist" as they read this.

Where was the uproar when Ellen got a medal from Obababa the War Criminal?

Trudeau's blackface. Forgiven by the left because he "apologized sincerely".
Trudeua's pipeline. Accepted.

Partisan hacks exist on both sides. It's just getting annoying listening to both of them screeching hysterically now over every little thing.

I've no issue with them sitting together. Thoughts about him being a wat criminal aside, it's good to be friends with people who you don't agree with if only to get other perspectives.

i honestly think these far left "SJWs" get off to this kind of attention. when people get enraged and bitch at them, it enrages them.

Feeling you -- your cadence seeps
Whispering in flashback -- the spectres of your memories
