What right wing racism?

PS:

The 2nd A. is what is it, and will have to be dealt with according to the law, but I am having a hard time buying this argument that we are in danger of being invaded by the most powerful empire in the world, which is us, and which is staffed by you and me. And I find it curious that protection from an occupying army was only one of the unstated reasons this article was included in the Bill of Rights. The other reason was to make it easier to oppress people (i.e., rebellious slaves) who might get uppity notions of obtaining their own rights.

Also, guns were needed to free the land from the Indians.


PPS:

Religion in America today, especially in the Judeo-Christian, biblical form that inspired the concept of self-government, the rights of the individual and the rule of law, is on the run.

Not the Athens of Pericles? Republican Rome? Pagan Anglo-Saxon common Law?

Don’t believe me? Here is what Thomas Jefferson (well know slave owner and rapist) had to say on the matter:

[Link: jeffersonbible.tripod.com…] “The common law existed while the Anglo-Saxons were yet pagans, at a time when they had never yet heard the name of Christ pronounced or knew that such a character existed.”
—Thomas Jefferson, letter to Major John Cartwright, June 5, 1824

Yeah that little slavery thing but you mean I can’t force prayer on people in public. Noooooooooooooo. Oh and people who weren’t mainline Protestants suffered religious discrimination in that period. Farah I believe is a Coptic Christian and despite his whimsical attitude about the colonial era, he would have been discriminated against. But yay another woe is me right wing piece by a dude who thinks freedom is denying other people freedom.

I thought he was Lebanese Catholic funded by the Unification Moonie church?

Are We More Free Now Than We Were in 1776? I guess it all depends on who you ask.

The answer is YES! We did not exist in 1776 so had zero freedom.

I’m not too sure. I am just fairly positive he’s not RC or any type of mainline Protestant. His kind would have gotten shit in 1776 given the prejudices of the time is my point. Not that he really cares because he wants to fantasize that Christians have always been tolerant towards other Christians.

Farah was born in Paterson, New Jersey, on July 6, 1954, to parents of Syrian and Lebanese ancestry…..He is married to Elizabeth Farah and is a conservative evangelical Christian.

Farah is not a Coptic name. I know my geo-religious identities back when I was studying Middle Eastern culture as part of my degree - dropped out became a capitalist pig exploiter of the working classes to my great shame.

Define “we”. Define “us”. Define “me”. Define reality and……

Ah I didn’t realize he was an evangelical. Evangelicals weren’t too popular either in 1776 for that matter either. He should be goddamn grateful that we have religious freedom in the first place.

re: #10 HappyWarrior

If you ask these types they will tell you the Founding Fathers were evangelical also.
