Calling me a commie again, blah blah blah

in response to reader comment: Susan, Give the old Commie a break

This must be what they call "red-baiting" or the "red scare". Funny though, I never thought it'd be used against me, save by people like you who specialize in illogic or "ill-logic".

Judeo-Christ, it's okay, just admit that you can't respond to me anymore; just admit that you lost the argument, okay? No need for excuses, I can understand you completely. I'm pretty magnanimous in victory, you know. I know it hurts to lose, but that's what happens when you continue to stand up for the wrong beliefs.

No more excuses, don't call my posts garbage or "inane and irrational mumbo jumbo" just 'cause you can't answer. I could do the same thing with yours and susan's, since that is mostly what they are, but instead I continue trying to make you see the error of your ways.

Or you could continue calling me a "commie", even though you're wrong. But you know what? Who looks stupid as a result? Only you. I mean, if I were a commie, you'd think I'd say it openly, wouldn't I?

And susan's responses, well thought out? I guess I was right about you earlier, that whatever agrees with you is a good response and whatever doesn't is bad. Oh, but you didn't answer that, did you? Because you can't.

I notice one thing in common in yours' and susan's posts: You both say you like Filipinos in general, and I'm a disgrace to my race, etc. etc. However, I notice an interesting bifurcation here, namely, that you both say you like Filipinos, but then you both turn around and say insulting and offensive things about developing countries, including the Philippines, as well as the people who live in them. This leads me to the only logical conclusion - that you only like Filipinos when they're living in a developed country. When they're patriotic enough to stay in their home country and not just leave either because they're too weak to cope with the harder life in a developing country, or want to live the easy life, or don't want to take the effort of helping to improve their home country, or some combination of the three (I am not, of course, including those Filipinos who leave the country to remit money back), they're "3rd-worldists", whatever that word means.

You also go on to say that you "admire and like the Filipino people and have some close friends among them". These "close friends" you speak of must be the pro-Western, colonial-mentality, right-wing Filipinos who have no feelings for their mother country, since you would never become friends with any true Filipino patriots. In fact, I would have trouble believing your claim to have "Filipino friends" unless I happened to know people like this personally.

As disgusting and unbelievable as it is, I do know a person like this - actually counted this person as one of my friends; who says, among other things, that the Philippines is going to the dogs, that he thinks white people are the smartest people on earth (this was already disproved scientifically), that the capitalist free market system is the only way to go, and that he's going to move to a Western country (it used to be the US, but he's considering Canada or Spain).

It's odd that he thinks white people are smarter, considering that he can't speak any Filipino worth shit, and that's his native language. It's just his "mestizo pride" at having some Spanish blood in his veins talking, therefore, he now considers himself superior to the rest of the natives. These are the kinds of Filipinos you would become friends with. Frankly, I find myself unable to understand why any nonwhite would be a right-winger, considering that 1)right-wing ideologies are anti-poor, and 2) the right is the side of the political spectrum normally associated with racism and domination of the strongest. (Everyone knows that Hitler was a racist, but no one ever said Stalin was, his other flaws notwithstanding).

You might even become friends with the Federalists, or those Filipinos who believe that what's best for the Philippines is for us to give up our national identity and become a state of the US. The Federalists are actually a political party here that has fielded a candidate in every political election, though they've never had enough poular support to get elected, thankfully. The facts belie this idea: After all, was the Philippines not an American colony for nearly 50 years? Did we get any prosperity from that? No. Becoming a colony of a developed country would only cause them to exploit us, not help us.

This being the case, you have no right at all to call me a disgrace to my race, especially seeing as you're not even a Filipino. So shut up, Judeo-Christ. You seem to be rather proud of your faith, but you're nothing but a fake Christian.

You only like people from developing countries when they're living in your country, otherwise they're "poor people". And as we know, being poor is a mortal sin in your book.

"In one of his outbursts he claims that the west is jealous since the developing world is going ahead in leaps and bounds and will overtake the economies of the western world in the not too distant future. Funny, then I wonder why so many of his cohorts in the developing world are still immigrating either illegally or legally in droves to the west. By his logic, it should be the other way around, but how many Americans, Canadians, Europeans etc do you see risking their lives to cross the pacific in little boats or hide under the belly of trucks or trains to reach the promised land in India, Vietnam, Phillipines, China etc and realise their dream of starting a better life? the answer is none,"

I rest my case.

"So let the old commie rest and vicariously live in his fools world, cause all you are going to get out of him is flurry of twisted history, blatant lies and ludicrous banter. What the old commie also does not seem to fathom is that although he may team up with his Moslem buddies now it wont be long before they turn the gun on him."

Hmm, I wonder, where's this "twisted history, blatant lies, and ludicrous banter" that you keep blabbering on about? Or are you just going to label the things say without giving examples?
