    IMO, it is hypocritical and un-American to claim to value freedom and liberty while at the same time support laws that deny others the freedom to exercise their personal, discriminating judgement, however offensive it may be to another's personal moral compass and principles. I see so many people, especially on the left, claim to oppose legislating morality. Why make an exception here? :eusa_think:

    Can you provide an example of what you are talking about?

    It's an interesting question... I will be eager to see if anyone on the Left will answer it seriously.

    No. I'm saying you should be free to NOT hire anyone you please for any reason you please. The difference is subtle but material.

    A bigoted, bible thumping landlord who refuses to rent apartments to gays, blacks and atheists. I'd consider such a person a total asshole, but I wouldn't seek to deny him his freedom to be such an asshole.

    If you don't get it, no amount of me trying to explain will likely do any good.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't apply to apartments? :confused:

    It does apply to things like colleges, and work places though if I am remembering correctly.

    And it shouldn't. I think mani has made a great point.

    I really think affirmative action is complete bullshit. Always have, always will. It's the exact definition of reverse racism.

    Someone's gonna call Homeland Security on you for thinking rationally.

    The truth is that the freedom to decide with whom you'll work and live is more basic than even speech. But we don't have that freedom. That's because we live in a nation that's descended into multiracial madness, and the main screw-targets are whites.

    Think about it: declining to associate with someone is a completely non-violent course of action. What if men spurned could force, by law, the female object of their affections to date them? That's essentially what anti-discrimination law is. It forces the willing and unwilling together. That's complete bullshit.

    All anti-discrimination laws should be trashed.

    And, by the way, that would mean blacks could discriminate against whites, if they wanted.
