Hypocracy and discrimination
Date posted: April 2, 2013
Under the heading of, “Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle,” here are a couple of things that need explaining.
So our government requires every citizen to prove they are health insured, but not everyone has to prove they are a citizen, right?
Will someone please explain to me why then, anyone who refuses, or is unable to prove they are an American citizen, can then receive free health insurance paid for by the folks who are forced to buy health insurance because they are American citizens?
Let’s carry this a step further: When you become, or already are an American in this politically correct climate, you are no longer Mexican, African, Belgian, Dutch, French, etc., you are an American, right?
As such, one loses ethnic identity so therefore doesn’t the above mentioned paradigm conclude that the ethnic group identified as Americans, become the object of discrimination?
Now let’s discuss discrimination.
If we, in public discourse are reminded again and again that Muslims or Islam in general should not be judged by the actions of a few (put bluntly) crazies, then why, oh why is it permissible to condemn a whole segment of the American population, namely gun-owners or Second Amendment proponents, for the horrible actions of a few crazies?
Isn’t this still another form of discrimination based solely upon a “label,” not a fact?
