Just because you're right doesn't make it okay for you to offend people.

Side: True.

If being right happens to be offensive, then not only is it ok, it's admirable.

Side: True.

Being right and being offensive do not walk hand in hand, you can be right without being offensive, and failing to find that way is definitely not admirable.

Side: True.

"If you have learned how to disagree without being disagreeable, then you have discovered the secret of getting along - whether it be business, family relations, or life itself." - Bernard Meltzer

"If I have my opinion about something, you have your opinion about something, we don't have to fight over it. And we can have a conversation. We can also disagree without being disagreeable, and we can just disagree, which is fine. It doesn't mean that I don't like you, or you don't like me. We just disagree." - Don Lemon

"Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy" - Edward Newton

Side: True.

Thanks for those quotes. Worth remembering. :)

What exactly makes it wrong? Why is it my concern if someone feels offended?

Side: True.

Maybe they should ask themselves if they are oversimplifying the situation by giving it a label like, racist, or misogynist, homophobe, etc. ;)

Side: True.

So true, and just because you're offended by an opposing opinion doesn't mean I can't express it.

Side: True.

Here's something every Trumpian or Conservative should keep in mind........

"Just cuz you only care about the wealthy and don't care if your new POTUS is a sexual predator and will probably get in into a foreign war as well as a Civil War does not mean there are not other, more intelligent and thoughtful and caring people who loathe Trump, and think that the old saying, 'Patriotism is the last refuge of a Scoundrel' very true."

Here's something you should keep in mind:

This topic is about Liberals, not Conservatives. Dismissing the OP's point by saying "well, the other side does bad things too!" is both fallacious and childish.

Side: True.

If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people-their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights and their civil liberties-someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal", then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.”

I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause - but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it's a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they're not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they're preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can't be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism."

Liberalism, above all, means emancipation - emancipation from one's fears, his inadequacies, from prejudice, from discrimination, from poverty.

Since you cannot spell the word I cannot help but doubt you really know the meaning.

Was JFK emasculated?

Was Gahndi?

Was FDR?

Was Jefferson?

Funny you, a guy who has a female avatar, using the word. If you are a dude, that is. I often wonder. I think you might be lady minkfart's lesbo lover.

Liberalism today is the exact opposite of what you cite. Emancipation from one's fears? All the left does is race bait, fear monger, name call and marginalize you if you disagree with them. Look at how they treat conservative Blacks; they are called Uncle Toms, sell-outs and a whole host of ad hominems not to mention how the treat Whites and others who don't toe the liberal line. And speaking of prejudice and discrimination, the left embraces it and makes it front stage and center. BLM, NAACP, Urban League, La Raza, Lulac, Black Panthers, Black Caucus, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson.... All prejudiced, racist groups and individuals and all are embraced by the Democrats. Furthermore, poverty is a hallmark of liberalism. Think Detroit, Baltimore, Ferguson et. al. All are liberally dominated and are sub par thanks to liberal doctrine.

You're welcome.

Here is something every conservative should keep in mind:

Conservatives keep pushing the same "supply side/voodoo economics" that have totally been discredited. Critics say THESE policies have greatly increased disparity between RICH and POOR. Conservatives think: "Mission Accomplished"!

TEA Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends. Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

At some point, the rich are going to start feeling a little scared of the poor. Especially if there isn't a large middle class standing in the way. Especially if the poor consists of formally middle class members who are pissed off, not stupid and have assault weapons. ;)
