Interested in Creating a New Subreddit revealing "racism," Looking for Partners (self.Conservative)

Conservative

30 ups - 26 downs = 4 votes

One are that I think is missing from reddit, that might be educational is a subreddit that exposing false claims of racism, media-created "racial" situations, and the antics of self-appointed black leaders who attribute racism to everything.

I was thinking of something like r/yourearacist, but would be willing to have another name.

Anyone down on creating a subreddit like this, and adding any articles there, as they come through?

EDIT credit to /u/moonsuga for the name "falseracism" and credit to /u/mayonesa for actually creating /r/falseracism. He an /u/chabanais should make first-class fellow mods to your humble OP.

Then we can add in all the women claiming to be oppressed because we don't want to let them murder children.

You know what, that's something that is starting to bug me. I used to be strictly pro-life, but the more research I did into abortion, the more my opinions change. Your argument is vastly over-simplified and it is people like you that really are just as bad as the pro-choice people that are screaming at the top of their lungs that they are being oppressed.

Abortion is a very complex topic, and I still consider myself pro-life, but there are a lot of things people don't consider. Did you consider all of the fetuses that are with severe defects while still in the womb? I think they should have a choice not to have a baby with severe mental/physical handicaps. What about if the life of the mother is in danger? Would you still not support an abortion then? What about incest, where the child can be born with severe diseases and physical deformations? And rape can be stressful, stressful enough that the stress alone can cause birth defects.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely abhor the thought of a woman using abortion as a measure of birth control. A healthy fetus deserves every right to live, even in a foster home. A woman shouldn't have that choice.

But your argument.. Your argument oversimplifies everything to the point that ALL abortions are murder, when there are a lot of cases that directly contradict that. This type of oversimplification is stupid and leads to inefficient debates that will never lead anywhere.

It seems like you're saying disabled people don't deserve life as much as healthy people. Perhaps the world needs disabled people in order to teach about love, perseverance, self-sacrifice etc.

Devil's advocate would say you're forcing someone to live a very uncomfortable life for the benefit of others. That's not exactly fair to the person being born with a severe disability.

Then again, what's more compassionate than eugenics? It totally worked when Hitler did it. Exterminate the undesirables!

So not murdering someone is now "forcing them to live" that's some pretty scary logic you're using.

In retrospect, I could have worded it better. For example, I went to high school with a boy that was strapped to a chair because he couldn't do anything. He couldn't talk, move, it anything. He was just that brain dead, but would it have been better to have an abortion if his parents knew? He is a huge drain on finances, tax payers and his parents, but he will never be able to do anything or benefit society.

I'm not saying people with handicaps should be aborted, but I think that decision should be left to parents to decide. I personally don't know what I would do. I value each and every life, but at the same time, not all lives can be valued the same.

Please try to understand that I really am pro life, and it's hard for me to explain this, but but all women are evil and want to murder. Some just want to raise a family, and kids with handicaps can put more stress on a family than those without.

There are plenty of perfectly healthy, living people who are huge drains on society, it doesn't mean that they deserve death. Like I said maybe those people aren't actually drains on society, maybe they teach us something about what it means to be a human, what obligations we have to others, how we should love. Reducing someone's worth to how much he produces financially is bad reasoning imo.

I am thinking of all the times when allegations of 'hate' are weaponized, as opposed to discussing matters of disagreement on point. [The recent article from Thomas Sowell] (http://www.nationalreview.com/article/369184/ignoring-facts-and-attacking-character-thomas-sowell) could be side-barred.

It would include false allegations of racism as well sexism, the recent news about Mike Hucklebee and Phil Robertson. Anytime somebody says 'They are full of hatred and bigotry' instead of 'Our arguments are better because x,y.z'. I wouldn't necessarily let the Right off the hook either, if they do the same I would bring it up here as well.

The phrase has been rattling around in my head for the past couple of years. I would really like to see it get some public play for the 2014 and 2016 election cycles.
