It's more of... "Anyone who has a point of view that at all differs from the lynch mob"
The real life wannabe lynch mob in DC on 1/6 sure didn't like anyone who has a point of view that differs.....but a moderate to slightly left leaning obscure internet tech forum where most posters regularly call out stupid bullshit and call the posters of stupid bullshit names is worse for you right?

If I may say so, the reason why posters on the right are frequently flamed here is because not one of them here ever argues in good faith. I am certain that somewhere there are right-wingers able to intelligently, knowledgeably, and earnestly argue the issues, and I would welcome their discourse. The problem is that they don't come here, for whatever reason.
That's a nice opinion of yourself and others. The reason posters are flamed here is because an almost cult like hatred of Trump and anyone not totally supporting "Progressive" ideas. The standard responses typically involve calling someone a racist, a gun nut, a moron, a Trump supporter, traitor, and any number of non factual replies.

Real debates stopped long ago because people have self determined themselves all knowing and any differing opinion is the work of someone not "arguing in good faith".

Do you have mirrors where you live or would you like a reminder of your own posting history?

Can we talk about white liberals moving into historic black areas and then making that area unaffordable? What about the effects of gentrification? We have generations of black people who cannot afford to live in their neighborhoods because white people are moving in, renovating houses and making that area unaffordable. Can we talk about that?

I am certain that anyone intelligent, knowledgeable and earnest would have abandoned conservatism decades ago.

in all seriousness, if this were any other nation on planet earth, the U.N. would be constantly sending investigators to evaluate our human rights violations and inability to cope with disasters.

Why? Are you having trouble discussing the topic at hand? I would think that you being the anti government righty you are you’d be all over this subject. I wonder why you aren’t.

Dude.. you don't even engage in 2-way discussion. You just shitpost and run every time.
And FYI there's nothing "cult-like" in hating a President who calls Americans "human scum" because they didn't vote for him, and who wanted to use the military against Americans on American soil. Or who demanded that an election he lost be overturned. Quite the opposite, that's just loving freedom, something I doubt you understand.
And as for your take on differing opinions, I can't really take seriously your complaints about people calling you those names when all you do here is call people "Progresshiviks," socialists, commies, left-wing mob, etc. That's not real debate. What's happening is that you're getting treated as you treat others, but lack the self-awareness to realize it.

Please let me know when you offer any valid criticism of anything.
Come on now, he posts shitty memes and pictures of women he deems insufficiently deferential to his worldview every other post.

For shitbags, there's no higher form of criticism, and their misogyny is the validity.

Weird how no one ever complains about "white neighborhoods" gentrifying. Gee.. I wonder why that is. I bet it's because it's actually a very good thing for a neighborhood to become more prosperous and affluent. Which then kinda begs the question, why are some against that for "black neighborhoods?" Is it because they think the ghetto should stay the ghetto? And that blacks should stay in their neighborhoods and whites in theirs? Hmm.. yes, let's talk more about this.

I just see a whole bunch of people, here and everywhere, who are far more concerned about looking like they're right than actually being right.

Link a thread other than this one where you believe you've argued in good faith and tell us why the Vic's assertion is proven wrong by your arguments in that thread. This is your chance to own all the libs here. Can you do it?

Well, it is obviously has nothing to do with systemic racism. As that has been proclaimed to be non-existent.
