Tossing in "boilerplate" seemingly at random is about 50% of the OPs argument style.


Don't pretend you know what the term means.

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.

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.
I don't think it's outrage, but death from a thousand cuts. Society at every turn is trying to deny and demonize every action anybody but them believes in. These attacks from every side must be met by a defiant line in the sand or one day you will find yourself led by tyrants and imbeciles.
edit on 2-9-2017 by Plotus because: just say 'no more'

I hear you, and that's why I support protesting Nazis and white supremists. It's the same issue. But at some point it become meaningless, if we protest every little thing. In the scheme of things, father's day is just a day to make Hallmark a ton of money and stress everyone out with more things to buy and depress the rest of us with dead fathers.

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.

No I don't, and it is beneath you to ask that question like you mean it seriously.

I'm just going off your own words in the OP. If that's not what you believe, maybe a different title and wording in the OP would stop any misunderstanding.

As it stands, it's just a hit piece that unfairly paints one side of the political spectrum in a negative light.

That would be a good thing.

We're going round in circles. It is a reported article and not formed from beliefs.

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.

We all know what this OP was nothing more than another opportunity to bash women, feminists, liberals and Progressives under the banner of defending something "traditional."

Dime a dozen, garden-variety, claptrap.

I guess I was confused. I thought this was your opinion on the video:


All the usual insane liberal anti-male boilerplate; non-inclusive, offensive to children that dont have fathers bollocks,


My bad.

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

While we're acknowledging the truths involved here ... let's just be honest that the "fatherless children" bit is nothing but a dog-whistle for racial slurs.

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.

What, like "boilerplate"?

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