    The Bible is not in the discussion. Your blatant hypocrisy is. You don't believe in the Bible so you have no reason to use it as a rebuttal. It's merely a tu quoque fallacy.

      Your religion says it’s sometimes okay “if they started it.” You words.

        I have no idea what this thread is even about. Is whag frustrated because nobody jumped to the defense of a grown man bullying children?

          But yours doesn't. So your response is fallacious.

              It’s more of a “hey, look at the frustration of the anti mask crowd.” It’s no different than someone posting a video of alleged pro mask behavior. I don’t think they do that hoping leftists will agree with obnoxious confrontations and declarations of threatened violence.

              I think we do it because it’s interesting.

                    So what do you think the reaction would be if such obnoxious behavior was associated with names like Juanita and Keisha?

                    Would it be denounced as racist stereotyping, even after the claim that Juanita and Keisha can be any ethnicity is offered?

                      You mean like if a Puerto Rican women flipped her lid in public was met with “we have a Juanita here!”? Already, it’s not the same because that happens frequently at 9gag with a thousand different black and ethnic names. Only the name Karen stuck in popular culture (and now the male equivalent “Kevin.”) There’s no April, Gwynyth, Cassidy, or Beauregard. Just Karen.

                      The only people who should be upset are Karens, and typically the real Karens don’t make a fuss and keep a low profile. A Karen complaining about Karen being an epithet actual sounds like a Karen, or so the joke goes.

                          Another Kevin antimasker gives old librarian guff for enforcing mask policy. Not illegal but incredibly stupid.

                                I’m not sure what childish interpretation has to do with it. Either the conquest was precipitated and justified by provocative action or it wasn’t. That’s the apologia for the wars. The same applies to WWII.

                                The argument that Karenism is tantamount to “sambo” and “Ching Chong” epithet is fatuous, and one can argue even if it was as blatantly racist and offensive as that—which is absurd and you know it—a bit of backlash has occurred from centuries of demeaning racist verbiage now embedded in the lexicon. That kind of backlash was bound to occur is the point.
