    I beg to differ. Remember slavery? Or what Columbus did with the native Americans? Blanket statements like that benefit no-one.


Re-read that. I didn't say "America is a shiny happy land of rainbows and holding hands among all the people of the world." We've certainly had our problems with racism and balkanization, same as every country. I just pointed out the difference in our histories, and the different attitudes toward immigration America has from Europe because of it. During Slavery we were a multi-ethnic nation of immigrants. During Columbus - uh, we weren't even a nation then. That was you guys fucking everything up to start with.

You know, I may not agree with Grimis' overall stance, but he makes a good point here. To me, the problem with staunch left wing and right wing proponents is that they are unwilling to bend on ANYTHING. They tow the party line to the death.
