7. Brilliant essay, exactly correct, at least according to my observations. There are indeed a tiny ..

 

... few conservatives on DIscussionist who can make reasonable arguments for their point of view and seem to have some appreciation for facts. These folks are sadly drowned out by the screeching asshats who cannot express an opinion without resorting to half-truths, false equivalencies, racist blathering and pure hatred. They're certain that America has always been a white, Christian nation and anything that might threaten that perspective is communistic, gun-grabbing, welfare-cheating, liberal evil. According to these people, every problem in the world is caused by liberals who are, of course, the real racists.

And if you think it's bad here in the gungeon, holy shit, take a look at the gun threads over there. Murdering anyone who looks at you cross-eyed is considered a god-given right, especially if that person might be black, brown or liberal.

Still, it's fun to poke at them, even when they reject facts, reason and any idea that we're all interdependent. The "I've got mine, fuck you" mentality prevails. There was even a thread extolling the virtues of the Koch brothers. Any rebuttals were greeted with "George Soros was a Nazi, so everything the Kochs do must be good for America".

Anyway, I really appreciate what you're doing there MrScorpio. Thank you.
