"90% of the posters are about those American backed Nazi's out to destroy the freedom fighters who had enough of American backed oppression."

What a bunch of bulls*. 90% is people trying to convince people about Russian equipment and/or soldiers in Ukraine. What these people fail to notice is 100% of the people they are telling that to go "yeah I know". I don't think this is the desired reaction because they keep doing it over and over. Maybe those posting these comments and threads in forums and social media are secretly Russians trying to make us just ignore these types of news announcements? I need more tin for my hat before following that rabbit.

>We're discussing whether it is morally justified to support a person or organization whose profit from goods and/or services sold will be used in furtherance of the oppression of a political minority.

Last I checked the majority of Americans support gay marriage. So the reverse, those against it, are the political minority.

>But tolerance is not the same as acceptance

True. This is why the KKK has the right to exist even though their views are not acceptable by the majority.

I really don't see a problem with this. I mean, I can actually reason this as being used to find "bad guys". This is very different from the NSA bullshit program which you don't have to be a conspiracy nut to know is being used for totally different reasons than we are being told.

You think the internet is free of censorship and spying by the government where you live? Check again. You don't have to look too hard to find about every country in the "free world" is actively looking at ways to spy on their citizens and limit their access. Countries like China and Iran are unique in that they decided to make their own non-Western controlled version of the same trap.

Some of my readers ask me what a "Serial Port" is. The answer is: I don't know. Is it some kind of wine you have with breakfast?
