Re: Wow, maybe there is hope for free speech

Well that's unfortunate. Whoever is doing the harassing really ought to stop. I doubt the Congressmen like it much, plus it gives ammunition to crackpots looking to push a dishonest, one-sided narrative.

Re: Chicagoland!

B.W. pops into a thread about Chicago to ramble about Obamacare and Nanci Pelosi as if he's as senile as he says she is... Also, Obamacare was never perfect, but if it implodes it's because the Republicans have spent the last 8 years doing everything in their power to break so that they could call i...

Re: Wow, maybe there is hope for free speech

As we know, the VOCAL and DEMONSTRATIVE become the majority, even if that is not the case. True. Which underscores my point. If the minority are allowed to promote a false narrative with no push back their influence will far surpass they're numbers. But if more of us push back against their lies we...

Re: Wow, maybe there is hope for free speech

But there are people, again on both ends of the spectrum, who claim that it's a majority view among their political opponents. That's a false narrative and it needs to be challenged.

Re: heaven hotter than hell

Kid, the story that you linked is what's known as a "joke." Here's another: Is Hell exothermic or endothermic? The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington engineering mid term. The answer was so profound that the Professor shared it with colleagues, which is why...

Re: Wow, maybe there is hope for free speech

Yup. And there are similarly vocal and demonstrative folks on the right. That doesn't make it the majority view for either group.

Re: Wow, maybe there is hope for free speech

Yep. And...?

As far as I can tell most progressives agree with the views in that clip. I certainly do.

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

And I still disagree about the play. To a sane person the message is that we should watch out for unintended consequences. They killed Caesar to save the Republic and it cost them the Republic. Oops. Sure, an insane person might take the assassination scene as a suggestion, but so what? Crazy people...

Re: Chicagoland!

Being on FOX doesn't automatically make a story false. They're not always lying, just often.

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

Good post, Phil, but Rick is right. Political violence is as old as politics. You even referenced an example when you mentioned that play. Julius Caesar was stabbed to death by men who feared his political power. Here's a classic example: https://thumbs-prod.si-cdn.com/wEJKa9B3IBrjjzYQPP3UYSrY56k=/8...

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

And I told you, Rick. B.W. uses leftist, progressive, and liberal (as well as communist, socialist, Marxist, and fascist) interchangeably. He states that the intended consequence of "leftist" (meaning mainstream) media reporting and leftist (meaning progressive) political talking points is...

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

Abe, a stopped clock is right twice a day. It shouldn't get cocky, and neither should you. Frankly, I have no idea how things will go in 2018 or 2020. On the one hand, Trump is a train wreck. On the other hand, the Republicans have proved that they'll normalize any crazy, stupid, incompetent thing h...

Re: Leftist Propaganda has intended consequences:Shooting

Seems unlikely, and it's only relevant if they were also a-holes.
