Do you guys like Jews? Because I know liberals tend to be a bit iffy about them. --Let Them Eat Cake (talk) 19:02, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Do you like liberals? because I know right-wing trolls tend to be a bit iffy about them. SophieWilder 19:23, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

I like mine with a kiss. Boiled or fried, I'm satisfied, as long as I get my kiss. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:03, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
Again, being against the Israeli government's Gaza policies is not the same thing as being antisemitic. Of course you'll find stupid people, but they aren't the "tendency." Blue Talk 21:14, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Well in my case it's more about ideology than race. Liberal isn't really a term I like because it's one that has been twisted out of shape by both the right and the left until today it's basically a noise that modern conservatives use to describe anything they don't like, not unlike "troll." As such, I prefer the term "leftist", so to revise your original question, do I like leftists? Erm, naaaahhh. --Let Them Eat Cake (talk) 02:12, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

"Because I know liberals tend to be a bit iffy about them." Wait, what? Nailed a retread to my feet and prayed for better weather. 02:15, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

JFG. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_Jewish_Voices --Let Them Eat Cake (talk) 02:29, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

So we have ascertained that not all Jews think exactly alike. That is an earth-shattering revelation. I am not sure I understand your point beyond that. Nailed a retread to my feet and prayed for better weather. 03:03, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I am not sure Let Them Eat Cake even has a point. He/she certainly hasn't said anything coherent yet. Blue Talk 03:24, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Basically, I meant that I shouldn't have used the term "liberal." --Let Them Eat Cake (talk) 12:50, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Race vs religion[edit]

Currently we seem to include both. (For example, Ayn Rand was a Jewish atheist and Albert Einstein was ambivalent.) We don't have a Category:Blacks or Category:Asians or Category:Whites, and I think that's good. Categorizing people based on race is something Metapedia does, since it thinks race really matters; since we don't, I don't think categorizing people based on race makes sense, especially since there's never a reason anyone would want to use this category. Instead, I think this category should be like Category:Christians, in that it is only about religion. (Alternatively, we should categorize everyone by race.) Fuzzy. Cat.
