    Default Liberal Bullying

    Privilege-checking and semantics-scolding as internet sport.

    That article was painful to read because that author seemed to be too much of a pussy to actually highlight any examples of the comments that she (unless "Ariel" is Hispanic or Jewish) was ranting against. The result was that instead of a rant against specifically liberal dickish comments, it appeared to just be a rant against dickishness on the Internet in general, which happened to casually mention that its perpetrators were liberal a few times. Well, no shit, she's writing for a liberal blog, so apart from a few random trolls, of course she's going to get mostly liberal comments. She probably shouldn't be blogging if she's just gonna get butthurt that they don't all agree with her. It sounds to me like the commenters are just trying to take it to a more meaningful level of discussion than trivial unity among liberals in badmouthing conservatives.

    That's because it sets people like you up to make excuses for the comments.

    Which I guess, an article of this nature generally should do. But since I know what the writer is saying is true and actually happens, fuck it. lol.

    How can I do that when I don't even know what comments I'm making excuses for?

    The author gave me an opening to make excuses for what the article sounds like it's talking about. Just calling out a few douchey comments could have prevented me from doing so, if they were really as bad as she says. It really sounds like she lives in some fantasy world where all liberals are supposed to get along at all costs just because they're liberals.

    Well, if I remember correctly, you make comments like the ones focused on in the article, and have defended people who do things like this. So, you'd probably just make excuses for the comments.

    Liberal elites are desirous that they be in situations where they can put others down based on their moral philosophy.

    The article is about liberals one-upping other liberals. I don't recall ever doing that. I've mainly argued against some of Moto's, Mario's, and your views that I wouldn't call liberal at all. I've argued because my views differ. Isn't that what people are supposed to do? And yeah, I know you have some areas where you're more progressive, but I honestly don't recall attacking you for any of those.

    And you can probably already guess that I think this, but trying to instigate the "1337" for this is just so pathetic. And a little bit ironic for a thread that includes the word "bullying" in the title.

    On a side note, I have been a little bit of a bully in the past on this forum, and I'm not proud of those posts. I think they were mainly non-political, and I haven't really been that way in a few years, I think.

    What is your obsession with 'liberals'? All kinds of people are like that; libertarians, conservatives, religious people, people do that shit all the time when it comes to video games and music, everyone wants to put others down because of what they believe.
    I wrote a four word letter.

    What is this thread even about? There are a few posts from Pilz and Treez I've wanted to reply to, but I'm not even sure if I'd be on-topic. This thread is weird as fuck.
