Cue conservative outrage about something that really doesn't matter. LOL

If you want to celebrate father's day then just do it.

Just like there are literally hundreds of special days and months during the year, like bosses day, breast cancer awareness month, etc. Who cares what a liberal wants to do about Father's day.

Don't be a special snowflake who needs a safe place to hide. LOL

Cue an angry conservative that will tell me to or ask me why I'm not outraged at a similar thing on the other side of the political spectrum. Please tell me which thread to go to and I'll post.


How about you start one of your own to preen and primp on.


Hmmm. What do you mean? Not sure I understand. Please elaborate. Is everyone who replies to a thread on ATS "primping and preening" or just me? Or do you mean, everyone with an opinion that doesn't align itself with yours?


It means your post comes off as self-congratulatory and pompous.


I don't think so. I was just saying that this is an issue that really doesn't deserve as much outrage as it's getting and that recently, everytime I critique a conservative issue, like this, I get asked why I don't do the same for a similiar liberal issue and have gone out of my way to do so.

Furthermore, why do we have to classify her stuff as "crazy" at all?

We've seen our friends on the right leaping through hoops for weeks decrying any attempts to shut down the "free speech" of terrorists, Nazis and White Supremacists ...

Sure, in my opinion, the lady is an extremist with little grounding in reality ... but what does it matter, right?

Free speech. She can say any stupid damned thing she pleases. Right?

After all, complaining about a holiday is really just the same as calling for genocide ... right?

That is not a word I used.


By George you're right; I did.


I would have chosen a more eloquent term.


What, like "boilerplate"?

You haven't used it in a few posts ... you're probably jonesing.


I used the term twice in the thread and once in allusion. I don't have to overuse a term, I've got plenty more. Agitprop is just as suitable to describe your manner of posting.

I agree that a small subsection of the left does not represent the entirety of the left, but there is an overarching tendency to call out the critics of liberals instead of the ones whose behavior makes liberals look bad. The more and more liberals start to censure the ones who make liberals look bad, the less and less people can criticize liberals in general.

Does the idiot woman in the video really need calling out?

If we've reached a point where this isn't seen as obvious idiocy to most everyone, we're probably past the point of no return.


Well yes it's likely too late. There have been so many instances of this behavior without ridicule and condemnation, that it is now near mainstream.

I'm curious, why should people have to condemn someone like the woman in the OP, who obviously has crazy ideas? Shouldn't it be apparent to everyone she is crazy, and just leave it at that?

I mean, I've never condemned the crazy guy at the end of my street that yells at cars as they pass by, but that doesn't mean I support what he's saying.



Behavior like this has been a burning bag of dog poo on the doorstep of liberals for quite some time. Conservatives in particular have been criticizing and writing about political correctness for decades. Liberals on the other hand? Hardly anything. Now the smoke and smell is by now so odious that people are simply walking away from it. Someone has to put it out.

I genuinely hope you don't feel bad. You are a skilled debator and engaging in discussion with you has been stimulating and enjoyable.


Nothing is aimed at you personally. I've just been reading pre-2015 ATS a lot where Hoaxes went in the Hoax bin, things were called what they were, and people supplied links and evidence for their comments, and the conversations were really good. Now, it's just about holding up one extreme as evidence of the whole, with everyone jumping in to defend their "side".

Again, nothing personal. I enjoy debating with you as well.

That sums it up very well. The actual liberals will have this credibily millstone around their necks if they allow this sort of thing to latch on and hijack the movement. The conservatives will have much the same problem with the far right.

Sure, I've pointed out the inconsistencies in your "arguments" ... I'm sure that seems agitprop to you.

Have fun in your thread as long as it lasts.

LOL. Even after it has been pointed out that this is an hoax you guys wasted no time to keep bashing liberals.
Rightists have lost all credibility right now.

Nah. Your thread will remain. Just hope mods will move it to hoax bin. But still good discussion though.

Yep. An hoax thread made it to front page. Embarrassing for ATS.
BTW NewsChicken is akin to the Onion.

They aren't liberals, they are just nuts. Fathers day will not end, because of a small group of nut jobs. These women must have issues.
