Unless you embrace the liberal creed, (some) posters act like you're scum of the Earth.

Oh Ive never known a conservative to do THAT!

I really don't care what Rong's views are- there are plenty of people here who have diverging ideologies, and I enjoy perseverating banter with almost all of them. fattrad was one of my favorites, that way- I had great appreciation for the way he maintained such a steady demeanor while constantly being slammed from other directions.

And truthfully, I had the same admiration about Rong for quite some time- in spite of his carefully crafted hillbilly communication style (which is a ruse, btw...he has demonstrated elsewhere an actual ability to spell & compose sentences very well), he took the regular slams just fine, and came back again and again.

Where everything turned was when he openly admitted his role in reporting hedge for the use of bullwinkle's images in another thread. (If you remember, hedge slammed Rong six ways to Tuesday, each and every day, for GawdKnowsHowLong.) That was an amazing display of downright lowlifery...in my book, the 'code' of ST polititard FightClub is that you accept that things are gonna get messy, but you don't hit below the belt. And Rong did exactly that.

Not just be a rat, mind you...but brazenly admit it, and play it up (and apparently has already done so on someone else). Others may just brush this kind of sliminess aside (or not even be aware of it), but I won't forget it.

Right... I've never seen conservatives calling girls sluts and telling them they are going to hell because of the clothes they wear and/or because they don't follow a 10,000 year fairytale.

I forget who calls gays an "abomination" and fight to ensure they don't get the right to marry the person they love... but I'm sure it wasn't conservatives... they are above that sort of thing... totally open-minded, openhearted, kind folks.

I'm sure it wasn't conservatives who have been refusing to reach a compromise with the POTUS because he is (gasp) a liberal.

Thanks for that Hermit, Hank, Coz, Dingus, et all... And i do agree that ive let my self fall victim to confrontation here by engaging it. Its not always easy to ignore..

I dont like confrontation. Conversation i love. Opposing or not. Ive learned many things here of which im appreciative.





edit: Ill will bet 5000.00 to anyone here that i had NOTHING to do with the banning of JHedge.


And MEhchrist,, youve never heard me say any of what you mentioned.




edit: Ive simply called for a slightly less vicious approach for the good of the site and all of us.

"Conservative think liberals are funny, and would easily have dinner or climb with them, or even marry one. They don't hate them...

Liberals hate conservative and want to spit in their face, and would prefer to erase them from the planet and as seen on this site, grave personal attacks and banning...Fatty..."
...



False!!!...

Way too general of a statement...









EDITED:

"I think Ron goes on to a thread, gives his conservative view, and is madly attacked and sadly starts to defend himself, resulting in a high jacking..."...


I agree!!!...

Happens often (Ron does bring some of it onto himself)...

Ron, I've never heard you say anything at all. I've never spoken with you. But I have seen you type some pretty vial sh#t... sh#t which only comes from a narrow conservative view of the world... which I usually ignore unless you are making a cesspool of reality and distorting the facts.

I just think it is silly to lump "conservatives" into any statement. To me it is the same as saying all "blacks" this or all "gays" that, all "conservatives" this or "hillbillies" that. Its all stupid....at least when it is serious. When it is a joke I will laugh my ass off. And sorry Ron, I get tired of everyone ganging up on you, but they do say some funny sh#t.

Conservative think liberals are funny, and would easily have dinner or climb with them, or even marry one. They don't hate them...

Debatable, but then no more than saying the same about liberals. The real test is.......

Would you let them date your daughter??????


The distinction I make - in terms of limitations of tollerance - is drawn at right wing authoritarianism and all the lovely values they hold dear. You know, bigotry, homophobia, Mysogeny, ignorance, deception, coersive force..... all that stuff. Taliban, Tom Dellay, Vladimir Putin, KKK, Ted Nugent etc.. I'd draw the same line with Left wing authoritarianism but its a rare species. Basically its the fundamentalists I can't stomach so as far being intollerant goes Sketch, thats my line.

Some stuff is tollerable, some stuff isn't and its all debatable if your willing to debate.

The worst of the conservatives are hate mongering as#@&%es determined to force their ancient fairytales and outdated moral on others while denying the validity of the system that makes their modern lifestyle possible (science). They insist on laws that prevent marriage between two people in love because they find that kind of love gross. At the same time they insist on easy access to machines designed to efficiently kill a bunch of people in a short period of time because they think they are neat and men in wigs wrote about the importance of shooting their muskets hundreds of years ago.

The worst of liberals are lazy pot smoking wankers who camp out in parks and play drums, oppose war, want welfare (mostly for mothers and children), and think access to affordable social services is neat.

I find the left end of the spectrum far easier to tolerate.

"Where everything turned was when he openly admitted his role in reporting hedge for the use of bullwinkle's images in another thread."...


That's how I see it as well...

Up until that point everything was "Normal" here concerning Ron...

Since that single post/admission (true or not!!!) things have gone south...



I can't think of any particular group of people that dig "Rat's"...

Though I believe Ron when he say's that he was only taking responsibility as a joke and that he personally did not "RAT" on Joe...

it's sort of too late as the "Call of the Rat" had already been made...

I never reported hedge for anything UNTIL he spat in the eye of Bullwinkle and his art work.

Plenty of liberal haters too.

I've been posting and lurking far less as this place has become a monumental waste of time.

In the past I donated to many of the causes here. But I gave over $700 to Tyrus Bachar and never got a thank you note, but at least he never attacked me here.
I gave $250 to philo and not only didn't he thank me, but he relentlessly insulted me on another thread but then deleted most.

What a moron!

Hey philo, deleting is not the same as keeping your pie hole shut. Do you have any idea of the chilling effect you have had on my willingness to donate to further causes? Of course you don't because it is all about YOU! I call it the "philo effect" THERE is the ugly!

Weve a lot more common ground than that Norton. We both get played by washington day in, day out.

Ive absolutely given up writing my reps. Giant waste of time. I get nice polished "standard" replys that address not one issue i asked them about.

That is the bigger issue Ron...."Washington". They have everyone so twisted up in knots and fighting against each other we cannot see the common enemy.

Forget if you are liberal or conservative for a minute and realize the republicans and democrats are totally f*#king us!
