    Good thing where someone "belongs" is not subject to popular approval.

    I'm sure you championed the Muslim bag boys who didn't want to touch pork chops.

    You comply with the terms of employment or find a different job. That has exactly fuckall to do with "we reserve the right to refuse service." Only the owners get to set those terms.

    Unless it is your firmly held religious beliefs, or you are serving gay or trans people. Then UA is all about workers rights to not serve people.

    Oh, Christ, UA is in Randroid Mister Spock mode now.
    He cycles between Randroid Spock, and Red Pill Lewis Black.
    Could a fucking hypnotist merge his shitty personalities into one asshole already?

    He pretends not to support trump, but in the end he is exactly the same as any hypocrite trump supporter. His freedumbs are only for UA Island and only serve UA Island. If his boss told him to weld something for a gay trans wedding he would have a pissbaby fit and pretend it is his freedumb. Meanwhile I have never refused to serve anyone even if they were obviously a religious nut who hates GLBT people and works against my existence all the time.

    It always works for the right wing loser, except it doesn't.

    Nobody actually disagrees with this. It's just that you want to believe everyone is being given an equal chance when they're not. But apparently this counterfactual belief is essential to your self-image.

    I don’t believe that everyone is being given an equal opportunity, obviously the system is flawed, but the SJWs think no progress has been made since the 1960s and they’re pushing cultural Marxism with things like DEI and CRT as a means to achieve their goals.

    YouTube man told me to tell you to fuck off with your bullshit. He also said to ask you to back up your claims because he knows you can’t.

    Really? I have a dr appointment. Is he just going to give me medication for the problem? Or should the entire body get a prescription for … some god damn thing that doesn’t need fixing?

    We do what we can to help those who need help. That is not rebranded anything. It’s recognizing need.

    Amazing how many things that might improve your existence have been relabelled as codewords for evil, yet an actual attempt to overthrow democracy is just "tourism" because they were so fucking incompetent they didn't succeed.

    Well, it would be, if you weren't a trust fund baby who was so fucking incompetent he couldn't succeed at not needing "communism" to improve his existence.

    Tucker Carlson called J6 mostly tourists. That doesn’t mean that everyone on the right or right leaning or slightly left of center believes that. One person said that, just one.

    It's equal reward without equal merit. It's entitlement.

    No.

    It is so not that.

    In fact, it’s the opposite.

    It’s recognizing that each will ABOSLUTELY NOT get equal rewards. It’s saying “here’s a dollar, go get a cup of coffee”

    You can't have equal outcomes without devaluing merit.

    UNequal outcomes cannot always be blamed on unequal opportunities or institutional bias.

    Teaching people to see themselves as victims by default is equipping them with excuses for failure.
