In my opinion, you must be wrong, because Solus said so, and we know that he will never let a poster get away with anything that he disagrees with, even if he has to dig into 20-year-old postings that he believes show the OP is a degenerate... whether he is or not.
James, in this country's historical norms:
allowed men to use force to keep their 'olde lady' in line;
allowed ethnic groups to be referred to in derogatory language and blatant discrimination;
allowed, to a point, ethnic groups to retaliate with their own derogatory remarks towards those who started hurling the slurs and pushing the discrimination in the first place;
allowed LGBT folk to be subjected to derogatory slurs, discriminated against, lacked workplace medical benefits and other rights afforded whites, natives, and people of color;
and allowed the often heard and ongoing comic commentary about the infamous 'casting couch' employment methodology.
over the years:
intimate violence between partners (DV) is a significant crime with heavy repercussions.
LGBT in 50 years, after initially poking their head out of the closet in 1967, pushed a national campaign of equality against discrimination, violence, lack of workplace benefits, culminating in being allow to civilly marry.
Clergy and alter boys has racked the church costing them loss of parishioners and cost millions.
let's see, within the last year:
the uproar from a 191x speech from an honored NC business man resulted in their name being removed from a university building they paid for to be built.
the uproar has resulted in multiple schools removing the name of "davis" from their school names.
the uproar has resulted in multiple municipalities removing statuary from this nation's past.
the uproar has resulted in ongoing hostile interaction of ethnicity spurred on by agitators for the sole purpose of stirring up trouble.
just within the last month the accused casting couch participant(s), e.g, o'riley, weinstein, fish, spacey, toback, affleck, savino, price, steele, besh, halpern, G.H.W. Bush (kute tho his handlers say "sorry you were too close to his chair"), feldman ~ all saying there must be some misunderstanding.
i am sure you are familiar with nationally recognized legal entities who reopen defendants cases and continuously win their cases due to zealous LEs inflecting their biases on the 'suspect' from the beginning of the their investigation, through the defendant's judicial process, culminating in the defendant's incarceration. these legal beagles search the web for incriminating evidence against those kind souls who investigated, assisted in prosecuting, resulting in their client's guilty plea 'beyond a shadow of a doubt' incarceration! Evidence, gathered isn't time sensitive, or only pertain to the defendant's time frame the event took place, the evidence only needs to provide a hint showing the kind soul was biased against their client's way of life, ethnicity, etc. if the evidence is allowed to go forward, every judicial event the LE was involved in is now suspect and like the sexual harassment witch hunt going on right now, steamrolls, exponentially, through the country's judicial systems!
as with the sexual harassers who deny the events being reported on is immaterial, as these individuals have to defend themselves in the court of public opinion.
do you truly imagine the LE's agency is going to defend any individual who's only testosterone bravado about their past and present biases lead to judicial irresponsibility?
tho a query James, as professed in your bonafides, an extended thanks for your enlisted service to our country during the mid to late 60's during the Vietnam conflict, but why are you allowing such an incorrect perception on a "professional" military website with a photo of you climbing into an aircraft, normally an officer's pleasure, yet profess that you were a 'SRA ~ Senior Airman" during your service at kirksville AFB MO?
btw, you are aware the SRA rank did not exist while you were enlisted.
