  1. Re: Liberal tactics: From twisting the truth to doxing

    Cool, that wasn't what he said. It wasn't even really close to what he said.

    He wasn't referring to any real numbers, that was the point. Also, you are trying to argue he wasn't lying by way of...

    Re: Donald's First 100 Days and Before

    "I remember this one poll being wrong; therefor, this poll is wrong!".

    Flawless logic. All polls are equally trustworthy and dismiss-able, right?
  3. Re: How prevalent is (Neo-)Nazism in modern far right groups?

    Actual Nazism, like national socialism? Not very much influence on the modern far-right. Their association is usually due to the prevalence of nationalism and emphasis put on race in what we...

    Re: Donald Trump's Immigration and Refugee Ban

    You really bent over backwards to not answer my question. I said "what terror attacks in the US have been perpetrated by refugees?". The Boston Bombers weren't refugees. The Iraqi refugees didn't...

    Re: Donald Trump's Immigration and Refugee Ban

    Wait, what terror attacks in the US have been perpetrated by refugees?


    Vetting is weak? The US has perhaps the most stringent vetting process of the countries taking in refugees from the Middle...

    Ugh, it wasn't meant to be an academic source, it is just an opinion piece! It is the same tier of content as the video setta posted. If I said "Check out this definitive proof you are wrong!" then I...
  7. Re: Website threatens lawsuit against Washington Post for "fake news" story

    Couple things: first, this is story from 2014, the journalist hasn't said anything recent about this. Second, these accounts exist solely in for profit book with an undetermined amount of it is...

    It is basically a grand scale example of the Dunning-Kruger Effect. It is anti-intellectualism. There have always been examples of individuals acting in bad faith in Academia, but there is no...

    Re: Donald Trump's Immigration and Refugee Ban

    He doesn't even speak for the majority of the US. How are you extrapolating that to "the Western World"?
  11. Re: Liberal tactics: From twisting the truth to doxing

    It is kinda silly you think you can demand proof for a baseless claim. In normal people land, the person making the claim has to provide proof of his claim, not demand proof that his claim is false....

    Are you serious pulling a "Don't use your liberal academic mind tricks on me!" here? This isn't some kind of convoluted BS, you are literally viewing two events that were different and proudly...
  13. Re: Liberal tactics: From twisting the truth to doxing

    That's not a statistic. There is no trend, there is two data points (# of protest during Obama's inauguration vs # of protest during Trumps). An extremely large variety of explanations can be used to...

    Hahahaha

    Yes, it is the media's fault Trump lies. Wanna go over a couple?


    Not true in the slightest.



    Not true, it actually had a low year.

    Re: Donald Trump's Immigration and Refugee Ban

    Oh man, those refugees get all kinds of special treatment. The media didn't even cover the Bowling Green Massacre that was committed by Iraqi refugees. I am sure it is because of their PC agenda!
  19. Re: Cannaboid subjects of the world- Substance abuse and the Left.

    Cool. Your point? I was calling out his use of a headline. The actual article title is more appropriate.

    Ok, then don't treat such things as established fact.
  20. Re: Cannaboid subjects of the world- Substance abuse and the Left.

    Yes, actually, significantly better. The next question is: how accepted is this position among health experts? Relatively new paper (2016) there, that indicates a possible casual relationship between...

    Any statistic that would actual support whatever accusation you are making. "Numerous crime rate statistics" have not been presented here, so there isn't much to shrug off. I actually gave a...
  22. Re: Cannaboid subjects of the world- Substance abuse and the Left.

    This is 1936 levels of absurdity here. You are just cherry-picking articles that support your presumptions. Try reading a full article on the matter rather than a single person's masking of medical...
  23. Re: Liberal tactics: From twisting the truth to doxing

    Don't know what you are getting at here. It certainly effects people's behaviors. You said that lying doesn't make you popular, and I gave you an example of man who lies (oddly blatantly) and is...
  24. Re: Liberal tactics: From twisting the truth to doxing

    That's what a statistic is. If you can't find a good statistic, it means you don't have enough "individual cases".
  25. Re: Liberal tactics: From twisting the truth to doxing

    That is what are sitting president does on a regular basis, yet he still has a loyal fanbase.

    The "losing side" got more votes (by millions) than the "winning side". How does that figure into your...

    Re: Donald's First 100 Days and Before

    Who knows? If Trump lost the election while winning a multi million popular vote (after he primed the narrative as being 'rigged') there could have been a lot of outrage. Since it didn't happen,...
  27. Re: Is America on the verge of civil disorder?

    Neat. Unrelated and pointless, but neat.

    What? When did I dismiss self-criticism? He asked how "the Left" (not really a thing) lost to Trump. Is it not obvious it was because a certain number of...

  30. Re: Website threatens lawsuit against Washington Post for "fake news" story

    I mean like a media organization that has a reputation at stake. You are able to take a lot more risks and be a lot more niche if you exist online only, hence why you see the articles with headlines...
  31. Re: Is America on the verge of civil disorder?

    Because a lot of voters are also bad? Also, we have an archaic elections system. Why we are happy referring to ourselves as a bastion of democracy while being outdone by practically any parliamentary...

    Do you exclusively use media sources that only exist as a website? How much do you know about journalistic reputability?

  35. Re: The post-factual world ... in the western media landscape

    Wait, then how is this relatable to to believing something that is just straight-up false? Also, why are you equating post-modernists to the Left? Why would they be representative?
  36. Re: The post-factual world ... in the western media landscape

    Then why isn't it the Left that is propagating the majority of "alternative facts"?

    Yeah, I don't think I claimed Marxism, Leninism, or the Communist Manifest weren't things. I was just pointing out you are using the word "Marxist" inaccurately and probably from an emotional place;...
