I agree. There are plenty of conservatives who aren't racist, probably a good majority. But when you have a candidate that gives a wink and a nod to racist/misogynistic ideas it's pretty easy to grab on to that. I may be naive but I was surprised at the amount of racism that I have seen over the past few months in the United States. It's almost become "okay" again to express some of these views and I guess the assholes are climbing out of the wood work. I suppose it's just the antithesis to the Care Bear politically correct movement we have seen for years. But yea, it's wrong to lump them together with "the right" and generalize them as racist. Just as it's wrong to lump together anarchists with "the left" and generalize them as young freeloaders. Especially when it's sidestepping an issue such as immigration.

As Churchill said: "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."
No matter what beliefs they hold, people don't think things through. It's easy to generalize and you don't have to think about issues if there are only two choices and one is evil. No one wants to vote for a fascist/communist/racist/corporate shill.

That is my point if they have the opportunity of free will or choice it would not be Islam or at the most a very casual adherence and the radicals would be marginalized like most religions practice.

I have to say that's bs the Muslim girl who claimed that two white men with MAGA hats attacked her false she is being charged for false statement, poop swastaka in COMO fake, and I can go on for days so I don't believe that Trump winning caused a rise in white racism on school busses across the nation this is just more hyperbole every president nomination per the left is the next reincarnation of hitler, or any other villain, I believe you cry wolf on everything and when he does come no one will listen or believe you!

I've seen some weird shit in Brussels you wouldn't believe.

I was in Brussels a few months back and man is there some tension in the air there... It was relatively soon after the airport attack, but still, it was just incredibly tense. Germany may have taken in more refugees, but I haven't felt the "Brussels vibe" in any part of Germany I've been to.

It seems as though (and some Belgians have also told me) integration is seriously struggling in Belgium. In Germany almost everyone wants to integrate the refugees whether they originally agreed with letting them in or not. It's the "Since they are here, we might as well get along" logic and it makes sense to me.

Are there really serious divides within the Belgian society Uca?

I'll put my southern education 2cents in. I am in no way ultra-political for the record. I've seen racism in all sides, lived in one of the highest populated LGBT community in the us(so I was told by them). Have friends of all shapes and sizes and beliefs. I voted for trump not because I was in love with what he was doing, but because I felt most we needed a change and Hilliard represented us staying along the same destructive path that Obama led us on. Our military is weak now, my insurance premiums are a joke, and the lack of trust in my government is more terrifying now than I can remember in my 34 years of living.

The media has been the worst in all of this creating this form of hate towards one another. Trumps election represents a change and hopefully a step in the right direction of getting a unified nation back together(even if the unification is due to the fact that people join hands in disgust of him oddly). It was a prime example of how lazy and selfish we are as a nation expecting everything handed to us when the Hillary supporters lost to trump.  The crying and "devistation" and having to take a day off shows that we are so spoiled and used to getting our way that we think this is acceptable behavior.  We need to get back to learning how to lose, re-coup and earn our rights to be an American in this nation. Participation trophies can go fuck themselves.

I hope he doesn't fuck us up and I hope he puts us on the right track. We deserve someone that will stand up for our nation and put our best foot forward. If it's not him, then in 4 years we try again and hopefully none of them put us in a nuclear war bc I have a baby boy that I wanna see enjoy life like I've been able to. #rolltide

Well now that Trump won its the false news from the nets that threw the election? Really? That's why you do such things as verify the source vet the person for office yada yada. So censorship is now the rage for the left really? I think I'm going to add a new slogan to my signature
how's this?

There are tensions between muslims and non muslims in pretty much every urban area. It's subtle but both sides are being discriminating towards each other. Then there are the usual tensions between french and dutch speaking belgians. Tensions between socialists and more center right liberals. There are also tensions between immigrants. Can you imagine a kurdish snack bar across from a turkish kebab shop? Brussels forms a nice center of all the tenses combined, of course. That's where you can sense the tensions the most indeed, because every layer of the population I just described is present there. More 'rural' areas (this doesn't really exist in Belgium mind you, it's one big suburb outside of the cities) are just fine imo.
The right wing parties are on the rise here too and I will probably vote for a more center right party next time.

I just can't believe the government of the nation that uses the most resources
But that's China.
Should have phrased that better. I meant that an average American consumes more resources than a person from any other country. If all 1.3 billion people in China lived like Americans, things would be way worse. Same idea with India, though on an even bigger scale. Even though those countries are going to be the big players in the future, the decisions the U.S. government makes now are still significant.

A protest marched by my apartment earlier today. Kind of surprised me, because our college has a bit of a reputation for being quiet and apathetic. It seems like most people aren't mad about losing the election, they're just worried about their futures, and what's in store for their families and friends.

Ugh, I really hate to mix politics with gaming or anything fun.  Politics these days are so controversial, you can't even have a decent conversation with some people.

Me, personally....I'm a full blown conservative Republican, so I always vote Red!

Here in FL there is an amendment that prohibits dog racing and wagering on dog racing...I am voting yes for that one!

And, as Forest Gump would say..."That's all I have to say about that."

Yeah, dog racing as it's practiced is a form of animal abuse as far as I'm concerned.

My PS4 handle was going to be cold dog soup lol it's a song that keeps popping up on Spotify, but yeah no dog racing as we know it. When I was younger my step mother showed Afghan hounds and one of the side deals was racing by lure or live rabbit was fun except for the rabbit
