    I consider bigotry very real and very much a threat, and as such, respectfully disagree.

    I will go ahead and question whether this has a place in !memes however. It’s not funny in the slightest and it’s only purpose is to express a strongly held political belief of the poster.

    I came here to laugh, not to argue, please stop posting these.

        The funniest part of you posting Dale memes is that people feel to need to comment their dislike of them. Meanwhile they get hundreds of upvotes.

        I, for one, think that it is rather mentally healthy to engage in the occasional constructive debate with those whom I disagree.

        My latter comment has more to do with my belief that this community is not necessarily the best place for such content or discussion to be hosted.

      I don’t think the point is that it’s not a threat. I think it’s more like if you set fire to a house before robbing the neighbouring house, if that makes sense. It’s not that the house on fire isn’t important, but more so that it was meant to distract everyone.

        That might technically work, but in the real world, it wouldn’t make much sense. Sure you could set something on fire to commit a robbery nearby, but that’s a lot of effort to do what you were already doing.

        Regarding OPs argument, it doesn’t strike me as making that much sense, and considering the lack of evidence, Hanlon’s Razor dictates that it’s unlikely.
