Forum Director & Omnipotent Overlord
- Oct 9, 1999
It's not Slow's position, per se, it's his methods, which include half truths, untruths, misrepresentation of the unarguable facts, etc. These are not isolated incidents. It suffuses just about every post he makes. He is dishonest. He brings nothing of substance to the table. Nothing. Really. That is not an exaggeration, it is a sad fact. He is an adult who clutters our forum with thoroughly dishonest bullshit. His methods are deserving of our contempt.One does not have to dehumanize someone they disagree with to be harshly critical of their position.
There is a battle for the very existence of our liberal democracy, which those on the left are currently losing to an amoral charlatan who nevertheless has a significant portion of the electorate in his thrall and the supposedly more responsible members of his party thoroughly cowed into quisling cowardice.
This poster clutters our forum with arrant dishonesty in support of Trump's existential threat to the basic values and norms I grew up believing were the bedrock of my country.
Murder is a sin against humanity, yet we just celebrated the thousands of young Americans who gave their lives landing on the beaches of Normandy determined to murder every single uniformed German who opposed to them.
Would you have had them do otherwise?
Liberals have long tried to be inclusive, with empathy, for everyone. The results have been Nixon, Reagan, Bush, and now Trump.
The only way for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
As a poster, I will not go easy on Slow.
