This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I think you'd have to work pretty hard to find the left equivalent of Coulter.


Then I don't think you understand Coulter.  She's intentionally adopting the attitude and tactics of the nutty left to espouse right-wing viewpoints.

Convoluted, but quite clever, piece of doublethink, John Morrow!

Here is the most telling juxtaposition of paragraphs in that article:

Quote
Adkisson, 58, of Powell wrote a four-page letter in which he stated his "hatred of the liberal movement," Owen said. "Liberals in general, as well as gays."

Adkisson said he also was frustrated about not being able to obtain a job, Owen said.

Quote from: Jackalope;229171
Even Michael Moore, the most noxious liberal windbag with any sort of actual media platform from which to reach people, is nothing compared to the sort of hatred spewed on a regular basis by the masses of right wing commentators.


How much time do you spend listening to right-wing commentators or do you simply trust the characterizations provided to you by the likes of FAIR and MoveOn.org?  Can you give me some specific examples of the sort of hatred you are talking about?

Quote from: Jackalope;229171
Hell, even that idiot with his "little eichmans" crap wasn't being half as nasty as Michelle Malkin on a good day.


So what exactly has Michelle Malkin said that's comparable to saying that the victims of 9/11 deserved their fate because they were "little Eichmanns"?  I'm sure you have plenty of examples in mind so please be specific.

Quote from: Jackalope;229171
Also, and this may just be my bias showing, I find the targets of leftists hate -- the rich, powerful and elitist who dehumanize those whose shouders they ride on -- much less sympathetic than the targets of right wing hate: the poor, the disenfranchised, minorities, gays, women, immigrants, etc.  That alone makes right wing hate seem infinitely nastier.


Yes, it's your bias showing.

You've never actually heard Coulter explain her schtick, have you?  She's reflecting back to the left how the far left looks to the right.

I'm not as etreme as John - but boy does Jackalope have his description wrong or screwed up . The "left" or the "right" doesn't hate anybody. The EXTREME left or right might, but the average rightwing or leftwing person is not a 'hater'. They may be confused, embarasseds or disappointed by stuff the other side does  - but they don't hate.

Extremists (of either side) are the ones who hate.

What makes you think I'm any more likely to "snap" than you are or anyone else here is?

You tend to foam at the mouth from time to time, which is really bad for your blood pressure btw.

My blood pressure is generally 120/80 so you can take it off of your list of things to worry about.

Yeah...Mr. Morrow is the only one who foams at the mouth around here...

We tend to see those positions with which we agree, no matter how vociferously debated, as less "foaming at the mouth" than those with which we disagree.

Y'know, every time I see the thread title I think something completely different from what it actually is saying.  See: On some websites 'snaps' are links to interesting bits on other sites or somesuch... so I see the thread title as

'Right wing lunatics' on RPGSite 'shout outs'...

Not: 'Nutjob guns motherfuckers down...
For you the day you found a minor error in a Post by Spike and forced him to admit it, it was the greatest day of your internet life.  For me it was... Tuesday.

For the curious: Apparently, in person, I sound exactly like the Youtube Character The Nostalgia Critic.   I have no words.
