  1. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    You are the one destroying history here, with these desperate attempts of revisionism.


    Classic "I don't have to be wrong if I never admit it!" stratagem.

    Re: Is Donald Trump mentaly fit for the presidency?

    You seem to not see any kind of line between "questioning the government" and asserting the Clintons commit political assassinations.
  3. Re: Why do we pretend the crimes of Nazi Germany are unique?

    Woah, take it easy. I was just trying to espouse the value and uniqueness of Jazz in a semi-comedic way, I wasn't actually trying to put down music from other cultures.

    Re: Is Donald Trump mentaly fit for the presidency?

    No, I can't read where I said that at all.
  5. Poll: Re: Is Hillary Clinto mentally fit to be President?

    By "statist" I assumed he was implying she was loyal to the state, not the people. I get the idea authoritarian leaders make populist appeals, he just said "authoritarian statist talking points"...

    Re: Is Donald Trump mentaly fit for the presidency?

    Discounting all potential academic analysis on the accusation of bias is very anti-intellectual, unless you have specific evidence of the source's malfeasance. If someone presents academic evidence...
  7. Poll: Re: Is Hillary Clinto mentally fit to be President?

    Wait, is HRC being an authoritarian statist or is she appealing to populism? You can't really do both.

    Re: The GOP Healthcare Bill

    I mean, are you surprised? The Republicans essentially declared war when they blocked the supreme court nomination (I can't believe people don't talk about this still) and backed Trump. Appealing to...
  9. Re: Why do we pretend the crimes of Nazi Germany are unique?

    I don't know, bro, the United States gets to lay claim to Jazz because it had racial diversity. Jazz! Like, other countries get their same-y music bs they try to hold up and we can smack it down...

    Re: Is Donald Trump mentaly fit for the presidency?

    I didn't think you could express such anti-intellectualism in so few words. Education is a liberal conspiracy, everyone.
  11. Re: Since when is deportation a type of "ethnic cleansing"?

    The part that enjoys the cheap cost of labor that allows the price of goods to remain low.
  12. Poll: Re: Is Hillary Clinto mentally fit to be President?

    Aren't you the one that believes Clinton literally has people assassinated?
  13. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    I am going to stop you here, as you are talking about two, entirely different, non-comparable events. Like, that is really intellectually lazy; you just took to events that can only be connected...

    Re: October 2017 Las Vegas Shooting - 50 Dead

    Again, you seem to be ducking the point. Never did I claim pointing out inconsistencies in government narratives makes one a conspiracy theorist. You become a conspiracy theorist when you propose an...
  15. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    It's not removing history. Removing history involves banning books and museums, you know, where we keep history. Removing a statue from public display is not that.

    That is exactly my point: explanations are not held as valid until proven, not the other way around. You can't just come up with any narrative from the top of your head and demand people refute it....

    I never said the government doesn't lie, I am challenging the idea that it gives you carte blanche to treat whatever you want as fact.

    Re: October 2017 Las Vegas Shooting - 50 Dead

    What? Are you seriously making the argument that you get to pick and choose when the government is lying and when it isn't?


    Yeah man, I read that people saw explosions at the BASE of the World...
  20. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    Have we had any semi-decent arguments on how removing statues from public spaces is tantamount to rewriting history? As someone interested in history, I am seriously curious to this line of thought.
  21. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    That was some lovely partisan ranting. You kinda undercut yourself when you use terms like "candyass", though.
  22. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    Not even remotely close to what I said. I said that "this" (this culture battle) isn't about art.

    Anymore arbitrary than any other local government process?

    Was it legal? Because I am not...
  23. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    But if it is going through the proper channels of government, then it is no different than any other decision on public displays that have been made in the past. We can't simply label any decision...
  24. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    This just reads like whining following a lost culture battle. A democratically elected government decides to remove controversial statues and boom, we hit domestic terrorism? This isn't about art. If...
  25. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    By "understandable" I just meant any reason outside of nepotism. Unless you can account for most of the potential variables I don't know how you can as confident of widespread political...
  26. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    Ah, and so we get to the heart of the issue. If you see no difference between 'propaganda' and 'bias' then you are the one who is woefully misinformed. But really, I am just tired of this lazy false...
  27. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    I think we have a different idea of what "broad spectrum" is. I don't think "balancing" propaganda vs propaganda is going to give you an accurate view of the world. I would just avoid propaganda in...
  28. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    What I am getting at is it doesn't explain anything causal. There could be entirely understandable reasons for such disparity. I imagine the changing makeup of the groups 'liberal' and 'conservative'...
  29. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    But that is a weak argument to make as it doesn't actually point to bias, just that people are expecting it implicitly. What's more is that that seems directed more at the 'soft sciences' when a a...
  30. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    Well that probably isn't what is meant by having a "balanced" breakfast. Reading one extreme view, then reading the opposite isn't a good way to grasp current events. I would again recommend to find...
  31. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    It's always nice when people try to politicize knowledge. 'Learning' is a leftist agenda, now.
  32. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    So you have no actual reason to think her opinion on the topic matters more than any other internet blogger? And you don't see this as a problem?


    I didn't say titles, I said 'credentials', those...
  33. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    Most of those statues are not 100+ years old. And how are you confused why people would be upset by it? Statues can be very upsetting depending on their context; why do you think people gathered into...
  34. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    The belief in the Lost Cause is still alive to this day. It is also kinda creepy.

  36. Re: Confederate Statues, Liberalism, Moral Relativism and White Supremacists

    Those analogies aren't analogous. The Irish certainly didn't see themselves in a civil war and would not be considered traitors to the British as they weren't British themselves. Taiwan is still a...
  37. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    I was speaking in the scope of the original CNN article that was brought up by HH a few pages back and what it discussed. If you are going outside the topic of that article, you will have to explain...
  38. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    You were saying there was collateral; that is, the FBI were listening in on people other than Manafort (I guess Trump?) in Trump Tower which was not mentioned in CNN's original article. If the FBI...

  40. Re: The Putin - Trump Controversy: Here to Stay-Links between Trump and Russia are being officially investigated by the FBI

    You still seem to be implying that the FBI sneaked into Trump Tower and physically put bugs on phones there (like, the front desk phone or something?) as if it is still the 70s-80s. That isn't how...
