Peer Messages from the "tolerant" Left?

By jdclyde ·
We hear all the time from the loonie left about the intolerant religious right. It has been almost a battle cry for at least the last decade.

Just how "tolerant" are these same loonie lefties with anything that they don't agree with? Here is an example from FAKE James (JamesG ) from Albuquerque, NM, not the REAL one (JamesRL) up in Canada.

One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: JamesG@...
Subject: abortion
Typical Repugnant fool - keep government out of our lives! Freedom! Wait, you want to make a mdeical decision I don't agree with??? You can't have an abortion!! I don't approve!!
Well, keep your right wing fascist nose out of my wifes panty hose, you f@@k.

Thanks fake James. You have confirmed everything I had thought about you.

For the casual reader, you may be asking "what the H E double L is he going off on?"

I have to ASSuME that this is in regards to a recent discussion with "ABSOLUTELY". I was comparing the contradictions for both Dems and Reps, and he made the contention that Abortions are NOT "birthcontrol".

(my post, his reply, then my reply.)

My counter was:
"Abortion for non-life threatening reasons, or the rape/incest IS birthcontrol because that is the only function being performed. Controlling birth."

At no point did I discuss making this illegal or preventing FAKE James from taking his wife for as many abortions as his sick little heart wants. I only made the call of being HONEST enough to call it what it is. If you are not willing to be honest about this FAKE James, so be it. Maybe you can get frequent flier miles if you do it enough and pay for it with your credit card?

Abortions should be safe, legal, and rare is the stance I have always taken. Don't worry FAKE James, I will stay out of your wifes panies.

(what are some people thinking?)

NOTE: see how nice I was to NOT post his email address, as he has peer messages turned off? Of course, that doesn't stop him from peering others, OR putting his comments in the dicussion where they originate from? No, lets make it a personal attack instead? Nice and tolerant of you FAKE JamesG. Real nice. By the way, to you eat with that mouth?

Then you could be called a "Tolkien".

Sorry, couldn't resist, with your misspelling of "Token". Otherwise, you know I agree with you almost all the time, including this time. :-)

also moves people into very similar frenzies, just as conveniently.

Salem, MA

"Because of this, people have tried to interject EMOTION into politics. The EASIEST emotion to get people going with is HATE. If you can get people to HATE, you can get them to move. We just got done seeing a whole election based on "Not Bush"."

The opposite side of the election was based on "Not brutal enough to torture the scary Al Qaidas." Now we can add, not shifty enough to wiretap without a warrant, in pursuit of the scary Al Qaidas. Pandering to terror is no better than pandering to hate.

But there were witches in Salem

by Montgomery Gator In reply to terror

What do you do with witches? Burn them!!
She turned me into a newt, but I got better!!
She has a nose and a hat like a witch!!
We did the hat, and the nose, but she is still a witch!! She has a wart!!

How can you tell she is a witch? She is made out of wood.

How can you tell she is made out of wood? Build a bridge from her. NO, see if she floats.

What else floats? Churches, very small rocks, A DUCK!!

Therefore, if she weighs the same as a duck, she is a witch, and we can burn her!!

The media is just a symptom.

by Absolutely In reply to Political discourse in th ...

The problem is the whim worshipers who constitute the market for that media trash. They love it when their politicians crack jokes, get angry, or display extreme emotions, as long as they're saying words that approximate their own biases. Which premise is correct and which is incorrect do not factor into the resolution of policy debates in the voting and contribution choices of the vast majority of the populace, thus they do not factor into the resolution of policy debates in, between, and among the branches of the government. You're too generous.

In the old days?

by maxwell edison In reply to Political discourse in th ...

You said, "In the old days, parties would work together and come up with compromises that often worked out great, but there seems no will to put aside partisanship anymore."

That's a HUGE misconception. We've ALWAYS had partisan politics in the US, just as designed. And it's not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it's a GOOD thing.

Moreover, the partisan politics of today is tame when compared to what's gone on in our history. I don't know where you got your information, but it sure is wrong.

How dare I challenge people to actually think and examine things critically.

I should be ashamed of myself. I'm not, but I should be.
