Black Lives Matter Movement/Protests

Conservatism
KeyserSoze115

In this debate I will argue against the entire BLM movement. If you are not educated on this subject don't bother debating. I will not accept biased opinions of any kind. Emphasis on biased. It will not work because I myself am black. This is to be a statistically accurate and factual debate. Any form of trolling/lying and I will end the debate. I look forward to his/her reply....

The United States should use private military firms abroad to pursue its military objectives.

Thanks to our opponents, Team Thrawn, for engaging in this, the second round of the Debate Champions League, with us. We apologize for the delay in the posting, and look forward to a great debate on an interesting topic. The debate we're having is over a basic question: should the U.S. government be able to purchase the services of privately sourced military forces (PMFs) and deploy them abroad? In order to determine this, we'll have to start with a definition of PMFs: "firms offering se...

zmikecuber
airmax1227

I will argue that there should be no restrictions on what words we can use on DDO. First round is acceptance.Resolution: "The swearing filter on DDO should be removed."I am Pro, airmax1227 is Con. I accept the burden of proof. I don't need to set a ton of rules, because having a list of rules longer than anyone cares to read is silly, and I want this debate to be straightforward.This is my first step towards helping DDO. I think there are lots of problems...

Is the Bible against women's rights?

foxxhajti
FollowerofChrist1955

The Bible has multiple quotes against the rights of women. In my opinion, it is a pretty outdated book reflecting the ideologies and philosophies of society during that era. Some quotes from the Bible which reflect this: 1) "You shall not covet your neighbor"s house. You shall not covet your neighbor"s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." Exodus 20:17 - Neither men nor women should be considered anyone's properties by any mean...

Japanese internment by the U.S. during WW2 was justified

Wylted
Danielle

Danielle please read round one again before accepting. Let me know if anything is unfair to either of us so it can be amended. I hate FDR and I like using this as an example of how horrible of a human being he was, but I have a confession. As bad as his policies were, the policy in question was justified. It was not a result of racism or hysteria, but the most logical course of action given the available information. Democrats, please do a better job defending your s...

Gun Control

TheTraitorToTyranny
Amedexyius

Gun control is a completely unnecessary and near-idiotic idea promoted by the current left wing politicians, both in office domestically, and abroad. In the wake of the shooting of a gay bar in Orlando, it is necessary for members of LGBTQ to take action, and to take the responsibility of defending themselves into their own hands. Already, groups have been formed nationwide dedicated to this idea. Not only should members of the LGBTQ community defend themselves, but the general American public s...
