2. But Chrisitan privilege doesn't exist

Because they're the ones being persecuted, that's why they need those religious freedom laws - to protect them from teh gays and teh evil secularists.

Or something.

3. Privilege = default.

Who/what is the default matters. In so many spheres.

6. Thre is no default

There are majoriteys and commonalitys, but no defaults.

And privilege is living without worrying about some things, in this case it's expressing your beliefs without fear of retribution.

16. Oh, exactly,

But I do think there could be said to be a de facto default in many areas, and not being it or going against it can get you noticed. Didn't say that's the way it should be.

7. Results of the jury on this...

I think tonight is stupid alert night for many reasons I cannot even ask the OP now...


On Sat Nov 28, 2015, 11:40 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

It's a term that SJWs came up wih
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1230&pid=47930

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Anti-Semetic, Anti Woman - SJW are Single Jewish Women
I don't think we can let this kind of thinbg take hold here. This is a very Freeperville kind of statement, blaming "the Jews'.

JURY RESULTS

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sat Nov 28, 2015, 11:48 PM, and the Jury voted 4-3 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The alerter jumped the gun on this one... expressing the origins of a statement and relating it to single jewish women is not the same as being a right wing nut.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Alerter mistakes SJW for single Jewish women when I believe it usually means social justice warriors. Still not a great post but the OP itself is flamebait IMHO.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I belive SJW = Social Justice Warrior, regardless, this is flamebait.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: SJW stands for Social Justice Worker. Check the Urban Dictionary or do a simple Google search. It doesn't mean Single Jewish Woman. The alerter needs to get a clue.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

8. So the alerter lied to get his post hidden?

Well we all know who does that to members of this group.

Thanks for posting the results, MMM.

11. Possible.

However, it is also possible someone really didn't know and just "went there." Though, I will admit it was a streeeeetch.


If it was intentional deception, then to the alerter: STOP IT! Misusing anti-Semitism makes it harder for the real stuff to get hidden! Thanks!

12. Thank you!

There is a person who regularly alerts on members of this group and they've lied before. If this is their handiwork I hope they're proud of themselves. Exploiting bigotry to score points reeks of desperation.

13. If that is the case, you know I'll back your play!

Jews have a hard enough time without others jumping on the wagon with false accusations. We get accused of that when it isn't the case. Well, you know how it is!

14. Yep, I alerted on a post earlier that really was anti-Semitic and it didn't get hidden.

Someone else already alerted on it and must not have explained it well enough.

Too many times it gets a pass because of ignorance or ambivalence, and of course, the other reason.

22. Thank you!

Alert stalking makes the baby Jesus cry.

And since they're not allowed to burn us at the stake for being too uppity anymore I'm not all that worried about cowards who think they can shut us up by abusing the jury system.

If that's what passes for Christian behaviour no wonder they can't keep good people in the faith.

17. Flamebait my rear end.

The quote is the simple truth, at least in many areas, and thinking it's flamebait kinda reinforces that.

18. But, surely, no one who frequents this group's postings would lie to get a hide?!

 



I mean, why not just post their POV?

Oh, wait . . .

10. That was a bull hide and the alerter LIED!!!

[font style="font-family:'Georgia','Baskerville Old Face','Helvetica',fantasy;" size=4 color=teal]Anyone who bothers to use google can look up SJW in 10seconds and see that it means:

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&es_th=1&ie=UTF-8#q=SJW

Social Justice Warrior.

The alerter outright LIED to get a bad hide. You should go to AtA, as I think LYING like that to get a person a hide and kicked off as a host should be a bannable offense.[/font]

The alerter lied and Admin needs to know that they're abusing the jury system.

I'll pm you to let you know how to do it.

It is unfuckingbelievable the lengths people will go to try and get a hide. I wonder what Jesus thinks of that lie.

25. I took the weekend off and I come back to see this bullshit?

Pathetic troll on a forced vacation has nothing else to do but concoct bogus alerts to get someone else a hidden post.

What a desperate, miserable life they must lead.

26. Great idea. Admin can see who sent the alert and only shysters would lie about something like that.

We've seen some low, shady stuff around here, but this takes the cake.

Sorry about the jury ratfuckery. Remember, theirs is a loving and merciful God, and fuck you if you think otherwise.
