Yes, without a doubt it's easy to see who isn't a Real Christian by their posts.  Clearly it is, so why are you complaining?  Would a Real Christian be attempting to use the term to denigrate others?  Who is denigrated?  Who inserted religion into this, a political discussion? Oh, this is a political discussion?  Then why are you ranting about religion?  And what does that have to do with this topic?  I'll leave it to Real Christians to figure it out.  You know, those who reveal their fruit, often unintentionally.......like Laurie.  But thanks for asking.....

Quack! Congratulations, it’s a duck!

If some would take their earplugs out, they would hear trump constantly calling people names and belittling them. 

If the cartoons are not pointed at minority women of the House, then they are pointed at Obama, and the Clintons...if you don’t see a trend, then you’re in denial or not paying attention. 

And I have to agree with the comment about the media...fox news has been a total abysmal failure!

To the topics headline.....how about we "pretend" Christians show the love for others they proclaim they embrace.  Wouldn't that be a great day? 



Well Reverend, are we discussing religion or politics?  It's all the same....just ask the "Christian Right" and evangelicals.  To many, if not most, one's religious values drive their political values.  But thanks for asking.....

 

Then there is the hypocrisy of some who keep attempting to bring religion into political discussions, I'm not sure you understand the term hypocrisy.  There is nothing hypocritical about it.  mostly to accuse others.  IMO, Real Christians don't feel accused, nor need to defend their actions...their fruit is obvious to all.

No, bringing it up is purely meant to point out THE FACT that there are repeated memes selected that target either a HISPANIC Congresswoman or her two MUSLIM co-workers.

 

This is like the third or fourth meme that has selected these targets.

 

The fixation on these three targets is clear.


So a politician is not supposed to be criticized if they are of certain ethnic or racial groups?  It's not the fact they are criticized; it's the obvious fact they are the only one's criticized.  Ever criticize trump?  Steve King?  David Duke?  Sounds like reverse discrimination to me. Of course it does; though it's a lame defense. What makes them immune from characterization in memes?  Nothing, we see so-called Christians posting them every other morning.  Are they exempt from editorization from other politicians?  Apparently they are the target of some.....

 

It is posts like yours that create problems in accomplishing a homogeneous society through fostering resentment.  Nope, "nc" posts clearly highlight the hypocrisy of some.

Let's not forget that this HISPANIC WOMAN, which you seem to have targeted with multiple memes along with the two new MUSLIM WOMEN in Congress, beat a Republican by a 78% to 14% margin.

 

There are plenty of NEW WOMEN in Congress that could be highlighted by your memes but you concentrate on the HISPANIC AND MUSLIM women only.

 

Interesting.


And it's usually the racists who rush to pull out the Race Card first, making it meaningless to those who HAVE experienced real racism.  Aren't you going to pull out the MeToo card also since it's a woman?

 

You don't hold back when it's our president you're bad-mouthing.  What's the difference?

Have you considered that if it were about the NEW and INEXPERIENCED Democratic members of Congress; then there would be some diversity in the memes.

 

There isn't.

 

Meme after meme targeting AOC and her two MUSLIM co-workers.

 

 


Perhaps because because it doesn't matter as the memes were not concerned with diversity but with the persons themselves?  You are the one who is concerned with ethnicity instead that they are politicians.  Is bringing that up meant to be a means of divide and conquer?

 

Especially emphasis on race and ethnicity by capitalizing code words.


However - the irrefutable fact remains that native born white conservative males - never anywhere close to being considered real men or patriots - are the greatest threat of terrorist actions that exist in the United States of America today...  

 

They are tRump's "fine people"...
