Affirmative Action / Re: Is there a reason why all these AA/racism posts have started around MLK day?« on: January 18, 2005, 02:18:01 AM »
I think the provocateurs and instigators actually stopped a while ago. It's just that all the p.c. people and AA apologists on this board have put up so many of their own threads of outrage and indignation, that it just seems like it was meant to happen on MLK day.
And, just in case you didn't get the message, I'm firmly against AA in theory and in practice.
an agent provocateur?
I will readily admit that I had a role in stoking the firestorm that has occurred. I took divisive, conservative positions, but I never started any anti-AA threads of my own.
Incorrect: a secret agent is someone who may merely spy without actually doing anything more destructive.
an agent provocateur is someone who tries to stir things up, start a riot (in this case, a figurative riot - starting another thread on AA to see people get all worked up)
