Re: The social justice wars

You have lost your mind, Kevin. You can't even acknowledge when you're ignorant of something. Your characterisation of Twitter is utterly fatuous and insulting and a gigantic strawman.

Your hypocrisy is galling and depressing.

Re: The social justice wars

The obvious problem is you have no idea what you're talking about, Kevin. Obviously people can lie anywhere, in any context. For all I know you're lying right now. It's hardly the point. I frankly don't know why I bothered mentioning it since people around here have adopted some sort of bizarre radi...

Re: The social justice wars

How you use Twitter is little different to how you use Google if you're looking for validation. I'm not going to bother arguing for use of Twitter because if you're using it 'properly' you know how useful it is. How most people use it is irrelevant to this discussion. Well you did introduce the top...

Re: The social justice wars

My primary source for media information is Twitter. The same source that the mainstream media uses. It's as though you're saying something, and yet, not. I can only assume your experience with, and use of, Twitter is limited. It's all about who you follow. The variety of access to information is no...

Re: The social justice wars

Make a prediction about the Trump presidency and list the primary sources of your media information. We can then compare the results and see who is more in touch with reality. My primary sources: The New York Times, Washington Post, Politico, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal My primary source for ...

Re: The social justice wars

The Intersectionalist virus that has infected feminism must be stopped. Of that there is is no doubt, at least in my mind. The idea that either the Alt-right or Trump has any connection to/or capacity to achieve that is utterly fucking demented.

Re: Trumpism

You don't think that the anti-SJW crusaders are doing the same thing? Of course they are. No, they're not trying to do it by force , which the authoritarian left are trying to do. They find ways to silence people. Take Trump himself, for example. When his ghostwriter for 'Art of the Deal', Tony Sch...

Re: Trumpism

Sure, he's quite calm when speaking to people he ostensibly agrees with. Most of his later videos he says 'fuck' every second sentence. His anger is palpable. That's somewhat understandable but I think it would be quite off-putting for anyone wanting to debate him. I eventually stopped watching his ...

Re: Trumpism

For example, Dan attempted to represent me as having never agreed with any of Trump's views. That is definitely dishonest and misleading, and I demonstrated that was the case. Liar.

Re: Trumpism

In any case, it is not the (technically) record number of deportations under the Obama administration that are the issue, but Hillary's plans to defend and expand the Obama administration's attempts to circumvent the plenary authority of the Congress over immigration policy. The Congress has no suc...

Wow, Greg Gianforte, a Trump backing and Trump backed journalist assaulting GOP House candidate for Montana is a piece of work.

Re: The Trump Derangement Syndrome: rational or irrational?

Probably the most meaningful paragraph in that article: There are, of course, legitimate issues relating to Trump’s ties to Russia — I’ve written about them personally over and over again. There are even legitimate reasons to believe that Trump’s campaign worked with Russian hackers to undermine Hil...

Re: Trumpism

if Clinton has made such statements in the campaign you'd be characterising them exactly this way During the campaign Clinton gave her support for open borders, [citation needed] and I think the idea of open borders is completely ridiculous, dangerous, and destructive. But it doesn't logically foll...

Re: Trumpism

And in the past I'd have found these kind of descriptions to be exaggerated but last years I've seen it in action a few times. It's extremely ugly and irrational. Kevin Solway was right to challenge it where he came across it. It's really a growing problem and a real threat to future public wisdom ...

That is my point. It was utterly...
