Racism and child abuse: the prejudice behind the pain

I am generally happy with the level of intelligence and compassion at this blog.
This comment thread is truly weird.
The convoluted logic and mental gymnastics people are using to justify their homophobia is laughable, and a bit sad.
The child abuse topic here has rightly focused on sympathy for the victims and on the big picture of how child abuse in many ways is a means to an end.... to blackmail individual politicians and control governments.
Wars, austerity programs, and a slow steady drift to fascism are all enabled by politicians totally in the control of evil shadowy figures.
Getting hung up on homosexuality and its role in all of this is a waste of time.
I wouldn't be surprised if the guy who runs this blog put up this 'we need gay people' post to remind his viewers that some of their homophobic rants are not accurate, kind or relevant.
The push back from some of you people on this shows that you have a lot to learn about life.
I guess it would make sense that the most extreme positions here, the Jesus nut who hates queers and the evolutionary zealot who uses his superior intellect to hate queers....are reflective of the views that our propaganda merchants want us to have.
The rest of us in the middle understand the big picture and are quite capable of seeing good (if it is there) in our fellow human beings.
I have had many great friends in my life, some lesbians, some gay guys, most straight people.
My gay friends would simply have hurt feelings and react with sadness reading some of the vile puke in the comments here.
I like to think they are from greasy trolls rather than real people.

As we all search for the truth and cast aside our lifetime of indoctrination, saying goodbye to the left vs. right duality is vital.
As a lefty, finding ways to embrace the righty, redneck, hillbilly cliche.....
I remembered simple men from my childhood.
Good honest trustworthy neighbors, not too bright, not prone to complex thought.
Perhaps there was a time when simple men (today's dumb white person) were very valuable to society.
Hard working, bring home the bacon, love the kids and their stay at home wife etc.
When those men live in a free country with good leaders, they are valuable contributors.
The traits that make them all of that, make them very susceptible to ugly propaganda.
The stuff of FoxNews and W Bush, dumb, ugly, simplistic talking points create the modern 'dumb white people' that this article discusses.
The education system as many point out, is a huge part of why this is happening.
We all have potential to be good or bad.
The conversion of the simple honest hard working man to the dumb war loving drone has been a great crime.
Good discussion of it here.
"Hull has lost a lot of its factories and its docks are no longer as busy as they once were....
"Earlier this year Carl Cooper, who runs a Canterbury-based marketing agency for car dealers, attempted to expand his sales force by offering jobs to seven unemployed people.
"Yet not one turned up on the first day.
"But on closer prodding Mr Cooper found out the truth: five admitted that they had calculated they would be better off staying on benefits."
