why is it that one groups interpretation of the koran effects the way the entire religion is viewed? people act like terrorists are 100% muslim/arabic... get it together psychos like adam lanza, the boston marathon bombers, and the people who did columbine are terrorists too. Don't let the interpretation of radicals make you biased to any muslim you see on the street. Beyond that there are plenty of radical Christians/Catholics...

To put it bluntly? Because they are brown and do not speak English. They perfectly fit the scapegoat role of the "Other" that politicians require to scare you into voting for them. The scare factor of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda are wearing off after all. Need something new.

If ISIS was even half the threat US politicians make it out to be western civilization would be a smoldering ruin.

God spare me, the camel jockey's are just as much white, as much black, as much yellow, and hell for all I know as much red. No one who seen them in person thinks them tied to a specific ethnic identity.

I think you're vastly overestimating the average American's knowledge of ISIS or Muslims. Even the morons campaigning for president are dangerously ignorant of what ISIS actually is or what it wants. Half the time they even mistake Sikhs for Muslims.

And enough with the camel jockey shit.

That really gets under your skin doesn't it. I bet your the kind of person who would have told my Great Grandfather to stop calling the Nazi's Jerries aren't you. It is widely accepted military slang to call the terrorists camel jockeys. It's not like I am calling them rag heads, goat fuckers, or sand niggers like some other soldiers I've met.

Besides calling them ISIS is just doing Islam a disservice since idiots associate ISIS with Islam. And my Catholic upbringing aside I hold no hate for Islam and refuse to call the terrorist anything even remotely related with Islam which every official name for their various groups is.

Yes, it does, because you have put forth you are a member of my country's armed services and thus are in effect representing us. Using a racial slur is not conduct I find becoming of our armed forces. Saying its not as bad as other racial slurs or that everyone does it doesn't make it okay.

And don't lecture me about family military service. My grandparents fought as well. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone whose grandparents or great grandparents did not fight in a war.

If you want to actually insult them, try musfidun or al-hirabah. At least piss them off in their own language.

Must have been listening to nickleback ....... tssssssss, Burn!

But seriously; don't hate on chad, he's got some decent songs.

See how I completely changed the conversation? Look, I don't care...... that's a pretty awesome response to be honest. People want to live like animals, let them do so. Humans are one of the weakest living things on this planet, but also the strongest. The mind is only as influencial as the actions we act upon, if we want to become a voice for our own cruel domination, the world will always be influenced by such things, thus we are all monsters, and monsters always turn out to be the solution for our voice of reason, if there weren't monsters in the world, what would we have to correct?

The world needs monsters so humanity can become stronger. The ones who can change monsters are the ones who live with monsters, we understand them, we want to believe that they are going to become something else in our eyes. We build a tolerance towards such things, and gives us thick skin. Live with the monster, slowly fading away, or rising above.

See how I changed the conversation?

Unless you've been in the military, you wouldn't understand. Racial slurs are a common thing, and no one really bats an eye.

And? That's still an "everybody does it so its okay" excuse and its also hypocritical of him to be on the case of racists in other threads but throw out a slur himself because its a different ethnic group.

And yet none of my COs, or any officer of the CAF has said word one of my usage or anyone's usage of the term. There has been no official ruling on the subject matter and I have not once been brought up on disciplinary charges regarding the use of the term camel jockey. And frankly your the first person who seems offended by, and that includes the Terrorists I've helped captured.

Seems like your short term memory is suffering and your racism is showing. Not every terrorist is from the Middle East nor is Arabic actually the official langue of every Middle East country.

That's his deal then.

I've been called every name in the book when I was in the Marines. In my opinion, people just need to stop being offended or "trigged" from everything.

Personally, I don't think Camel Jockey is as offensive as Nigger, if offensive at all. Now do I believe some people use the word to refer to middle easterners and such as such? Yes, and I believe that is racist. I don't think Ranwolf was using it in that context so what's thew big deal? Just because "it's a slur"?

You shouldn't need disciplinary charges to hold yourself to a higher standard of conduct. Even if that shit is "okay" in the field, this isn't the field.

Nice try, but those are both terms from the Quran and Arabic is the language used as an intermediary within ISIS even though a number of languages are involved.

You believe its racist but that its not being used in a racist fashion when being used against the people it is a slur for? -.-

And its not a big deal. It just seems like one because we are both stubborn and live under constant threat of bears.

Mate i don't know what your damage is nor why you think my standard of conduct is lacking or why you think I use the term camel jockey as a racial slur or why you think it's racist at all. I've called every terrorist I've met a camel jockey, that includes the white ones, the asian ones, the black ones , and yes the middle eastern ones. I really do not care what colour a terrorist skin is , they are all scum and thus are all camel jockeys. If I met a fellow Cree who fought for the terrorists I'd still call them a camel jockey.

You are the only one here trying to drag race politics into a situation that started about my prefered insult against the enemy. I've met and fought my fair share of them and hold no real opinion on the various skin colours they sported. it is their creed I judge them by and I find it lacking and undeserving of respect. Worthy of only my scorn.
