To Susan: Taking baby steps with another great educator
Submitted by Plato (India), Feb 13, 2007 at 01:49
"Nice that you realize how ignorant you are. It's a first step"
Yes I took that first step. And with you there to educate me I should do fine.
"I am sorry I have no responsibility in such acts, I come from italy as well as my ancestors, no relation with British, Dutch, Germans or French that went to americas. There was no italian army conquering land mass and stealing to indians. So your stupid comments are mere self-loathing of a guilty westerner, that is YOUR problem, not mine."
Something to be proud of. You were not imperialists except in god-forsaken places like Libya and Somalia? But something you could do well to forget. The inquisition. And as the home of fascism from which one of your favourites terms of endearment for Muslims comes - Islamo-fascists.
"exactly, learn geography, italians never conquered anything."
But Wikipedia tells me of something called the Italian African Empire, which included Libya, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia. You were invited there? With the Internet education is so easy . Another baby step towards enlightenment.And thank you for holding this baby's hand.
"I count you in the number of self-loathing, anti-western, pro-muslim, pro-destruction of western civilization, obsessed with guilty complex"
That was a powerful blast. It blew me away. The sulphur fumes were particularly hellish in that little sentence.
"Nowhere I suggested that WE is including yourself."
Oh the royal WE, a self-loathing pro-muslim could never make the grade.
"welcome to the road of extinction, don't worry, when time will come, we will not bother to help dying kumbaya groups. After all, you prefer to side with the enemy."
Us kumbayas would rather extinct ourselves than help in the extinction of our race.
"the rest of 60% are merely waiting for the other 40% to take power, either way they can say to the winning side "we were with you". It's a pity you cannot spot a good lie when you hear it, but please keep on uselessly talking about the situation of the native americans."
The situation of the native Americans is not useless. It is something with which I can needle your conscience. But I get the feeling instead of needling it open, your conscience is closing in on itself.
"really? we have seen what your kumbaya stupidity did for the greek armenians in turkey, for the buddhists in thailand, for the christians in the philippines, for the christians in the whole maghreb. Go on kumbaya, in a while there won't be anything else than muslims on the planet, then your kumbaya fake god will suddenly become allah."
Keeping to the Kumbaya and native Indian motif, our Lord Kumbaya gave you three brand new continents, the occupants being kumbaya acolytes, and bits and pieces in other corners of the world. Allah did not interfere. Will nothing satisfy you.
You have told us you are Italian, still your English is very good. But a suggestion to polish it further. Words like stupid, denial, obsession pop up almost every other sentence in your posts so much so that the eyes glazes over and pass them by without comprehension. I suggest you keep a pocket thesaurus handy. Your present stock of epithets is losing impact. You can find words that mean the same but which will give fresh appeal to your posts.
My little thesaurus, the American Century Thesaurus lists more than 70 words which can easily replace 'stupid' of which you are so inordinately fond. The other swear words also have plenty of replacements. Revealing tricks of the trade to the opponent. Before you remind me, my stupidity has reached the limits. That is being moronic, imbecilic, asinine, witless, brainless, addlepated, sub-normal.... Use those once in a while when describing me and my posts, stupid is now a tired sounding expression. These new words will at least be like a new coat of paint to a peeling wall.
Oh Lord Kumbaya, here we go round the mulberry bush once again with feeling. Please take care of the silk worms they must be getting sick of the same old song again.
That sulphurous post had me senseless for some time till my wife revived me with her smelling salt.
