First the kneejerk "Blame the Victim" stuff. Then the racism, en the hatemongering about the "extreme left wing".why if
This used to be a music group. But some of these old cranks are so old, they can't even listen to music anymore.
Have a good one.
You should learn to ignore this drivel Herman. It rears it's head every 3rd new moon, and when there are no more interesting and non-interesting pianists to discuss. Shame to lose informative posters.

Thank you, Ray.
It's a waste of time engaging these deplorables. No matter how obvious their racism and victim-blaming is along with all their other revolting views, they will only respond with denials and gaslighting. The only upside to them airing their views in public is you will know who to shun - though it is disheartening that it happens in a group dedicated to classical music, which IMHO is mankind's supreme artistic achievement.
Why do you think this kind of personal attack only seems to come from
the left-leaning RMCR participants? The few conservatives we have here
always want to talk about issues and never seem to attack someone's
character because of their political views. The name-calling always come
from the left. Why do you think that is? Why do you think it's OK? Why
is someone who believes something different than you (small government
say, rather than big government) of a lower moral standing than you are?
If I say I am against minimum wages because they reduce employment
opportunities for the working poor, I am likely to be told that I hate
the poor, moreover that I am a racist because black people are more
likely to be poor. In short, I am demonized because I hold a different
view. There's no logical sense to this common reaction from many on the
left. It's more logical to think that issues are complex and there are
two sides to every argument. Why the need to demonize? One you claim
the moral high ground, demonization follow logically, I suppose. Why
the need to claim the moral high ground? That's what I don't
understand. There is no possible answer you can provide to these
questions other than to assert your moral superiority, which I reject,
without claiming my own.
