the fella next door... his house burns down. it's fucking ruined beyond repair.
out of kindness and a sense of humanity you allow him and his family to stay in your house.
you're from different religions but you don't care... religion differences mean very little to you.
hell, the last time you were in a church someone was getting married.
after a few years you realise that he doesn't really like you any longer.
he doesn't like your work ethic. he doesn't like your lackadaisical lust for life watching football on sunday.
he doesn't like your wife's dresses and he doesn't like your daughter watching mtv.
one day you arrive home to find him berating his own daughter for talking to the young lad next door.
you've also seen him raise his hand to his missus. he looks at you like you're a piece of shit.
you don't agree with what he does but you've never said a word.
but it's only a matter of time before his separatism gets out of hand and you're wondering how long it'll be before your own house burns down to an absolute shitter.
so... how long can he live in your house?
as always, I'm only after the 'popular' answers.
have at it, fuckos.
shit, I'll bite and and answer this nice cute little analogy you've tried to boil it down to. instead of treating it like the massively complex issue it is.
this particular person can no longer stay in my house, he can fuck off
but I sure as hell won't make the assumption that my neighbour who also took in a fella who's house burned down is having these same issues and demand that that fella also leave my neighbours house, because all peoples who's houses have burned don't like my work ethic, don't like my lackadaisical lust for life watching football on sunday. don't like my wife's dresses and don't like my daughter watching mtv, etc, etc, etc. . . which is sort of what your posts in the basement lately seem to be implying.
that is the very definition of prejudice and bigotry
yeah there are issues with immigration that need to be addressed but mitch you've jumped the shark on this one and your xenophobia is showing
and its kind of disheartening
