In any case, I think we have a "political pictures" thread and a separate "tasteless jokes" thread for a reason, and the tasteless and offensive sorts of jokes should stay in the tasteless thread. That's all I was saying. That's not butthurt. That's just wanting to keep the shit where the shit belongs.

There is NO legitimate reason to ...snip... put signs up (or laugh at other people putting signs up) saying 'LOL NO MUZLIMS IN HEER CUZ PORK GO MURKA,"...
Go back and read your first statement.

I think it contributes to the daily persecution many muslims in America face.
And your opinion affects me, how?

But the fly in your ointment, or vice versa, is it ain't your choice.
I realize that everything you don't agree with is oppression, repression, inhumane, and beyond the bounds of human decency, but boy are you gonna shit when you get to the real world.

"I, for one... REALLY don't find islamophobia funny. I find it nasty and offensive."

Well, I DO find it funny, so: bring it on folks! I'm all for bashing any and all fanaticisms.

Bash Mohammed! Bash Jesus! Bash Moses! Bash Republicans! Bash Democrats! Bash Libertarians! Bash Straights! Bash Gays! Bash Bi's! Bash Cross-dressers!
Bash the Married, the Single, the Clean, the Dirty, the Sane, the Insane, Women, Men, Children, and on and on and on...bash 'em ALL!

Humor is about taking taboo and pissing on it.

Grow up.

An anarchist, sociopath, conservative loner walked into a bar and asked to buy a drink. The bartender told him they don't sell drinks, people pay taxes to the bar and get welfare drinks in return.

That's when he passed out.

The "problem" the post in question, and its sign saying NO MUSLIMS HERE!11!1!, was "drawing attention" to, was the fact that muslims are problems. That's not okay in my book, and not a legitimate topic of humour. The sign was not ironic, was not trying to draw attention to the plight of marginalized minority groups in america - it was just islamophobic and gross. Mine, on the other hand, while possibly making light of whatever perceived hardships police face, also humorously draws attention to the very real problem of police brutality, especially with regards to minority communities.

I don't see where I contradicted myself. The place of humour to draw attention to problems with society should be, at risk of sounding self-parodying, restricted to things that -I- think are problems! Or, more accurately, they should be restricted to problems that aren't born from racism, bigotry, hatred, and intolerance. Because none of those "problems" (like the "problem" of Muslims in Amerca) are problems - they are symptoms of the underlying hate and prejudice.

It doesn't. Or rather, it only does if you have a problem with me making very vocal and clear what my problems with bigoted posts are. I'm not going to stop "bitching" about racism, sexism, heterosexism, cissexism, and just about every other form of prejudice, bigotry, and out-and-out filth I come across. Even if all I do is piss the offenders off, rather than making them "see the error of their ways", or changing their behavior, I think it is one of my moral responsibilities to confront that wherever I come across it. I can't make you or anyone else behave like a kind, accepting, understanding, humane, basically decent person - but I can point out when that's not how it looks to me.
