What is there to address???

Honestly you didn't actually say anything that needs to be addressed, you just cherry picked a quote of mine, out of context then ran with it.

Challenge the OP,we can discuss from there.

Did you read it, agree, disagree, you know, actually challenge my op we can have a discussion.

I am actually kind of a nice guy if you want to have a chat.

I embrace being challenged in my views, I enjoy it, its the only way I have found to get my views to evolve and grow stronger

no you don't, you constantly make deliberately antagonising threads, you seek an argument then imediatly play the victim.
I don't know what your deal is, but its not what you claim.





Summed that up perfectly. Also, there is a big difference in debate & just wanting to argue endlessly. Gotta feel sorry for the guy; this is all they have.

hmmm....

I almost get the impression you might not like me very much....

Have you actually posted anything in this thread yet thats to do with the OP and not just a personal attack against me?

Go on, try it, read the OP and comment on it, then we can discuss that.

. You were arguably the most notorious and toxic poster here for quite some time.


No lets call it what it was.

I made several threads that challenged the view that Trump was somehow better than all the other political puppets that have gone before him and a whole bunch of you got triggered by it.

You call it toxic others may not have.

Personally I like to think of it as just me trying to challenge your views.


I did call it what it was.

You were undoubtedly and by far one of the most toxic members during that time. This is a fact that will remain true no matter how you feel about it. It had nothing to do with you having an opposing view.

It was the way you went about it. Broad and extreme generalizations (your opinions) posed as facts, and when called out on it, you play the victim and double down some more. Rinse, wash and repeat to ad nauseam.

You knew exactly what you were doing. So like I said, you made your bed... you know the rest.

Again quite unfortunate that you feel that way, nothing I can do or say to change your views on it though.

I think that our discussions however would be more productive if you would just discuss the topics at hand, you know, discuss the OP, challenge me on what is written with in the context of the OP.

Might be worth a try.

I have seen you in discussion with other members and I actually think at times you come across as actually having some good points to make.

I don't like nor dislike the OP, I don't know them.

One thing that is clear is that the posts are fairly expertly written, no denying that. Using such language that brushes along wide arcs to include parts of the populace that are false, and factually so. It's essentially an huge ignorant and divisive statement that begs for discourse. There are other very profitable entities that do this on a daily basis.

Again, I don't know the OP so this is merely an opinion. They relish in the attention. Positive and negative. Giving the statements, rants, and key terms used, it's fairly easy to see.

For example "Ohhh not this guy..." "OtherSideOfTheCoin, yeah we hate that guy he does not speak for us."

It's pattern attention calling.

It's a free site with most views expressed and everyone can express whatever they want within the T&C's. I don't begrudge them one bit for doing so.

To be fair, there isn't much to discuss here. But you did do a good job of mocking yourself, so thanks for the entertainment.

My honest opinion? It could've been better but it had its moments.

Plus, I've already expressed how it made me feel on the first page.

Hi ATS,

It’s the left here, like all of us, wanted to write to you, collectively, just to make a few things clear.

So, its came to our attention that quite a lot of you seem to be prefacing your statements regarding our “cult” with words like “The left believe” or “The left say” or other similar phases in such a way to suggest that a select few idiots represent us.

So just so we are all clear, this idiot.


Star and flag. I always enjoy reading your comments and value your opinions. This post is a great example of why I do so. Stay classy sir!

No, no, of course you guys don't think all of us are racists, bigots, homophobes, etc., but you constantly state that all those people definitely support Trump with the implication being ... what exactly?


You find that behaviour tolerable...so long as it gets you your agenda.

I'm neither left nor right...but I can say through several decades of witnessing and hands on research throughout my professions, the Right is much more tolerable of more violent and crude behaviour often against those whom are different. The left just loves everyone...too much.

Yeah,yeah,yeah, more Left/Right Divide and Conquer Psyops..
While the .010 % laugh their way to the bank.
Hell, they OWN the bank.

The United States of America has been bleeding cash for decades.
Maybe if we plugged the holes,The Citizens WOULD HAVE FREE HEALTH SERVICE!
Left/Right, which pocket do you want them to take from?
Both sides sold you out long ago.
Vote Trump! Hey, at the very least, it is a last ditch effort for Free Speech.

Well excuse me if you don't quite get my British sense of humour. (Really dude....?)

As for this....

(Now I really thought you were being sarcastic until I read this bit)



Did you ever once protest Obama's drone program that killed more innocents than terrorists?


Yup...

Obama's War Crimes, The Al-Majalah Massacre
The Government Assassination of a Kid From Dever

I know there are more because I was quite vocal about the issue of drone assassinations, interestingly I have not actually posted on what Trumps been up to with the program but I might get round to it at some point


That is exactly what the Left should be doing, challenging horrible policies. But they don't.

Resounding silence when it comes to the actual horrible war policy we have in Syria. Not a peep from the Left on it. That is why they will lose, disconnected from humanity. Care more about legalizing pot and trans getting bathrooms than the fact that we arm and train terrorists to wage war on the citizens of Syria.

Hi Lefty,
Did you wake up this morning and decide...



By starting off in calling yourselves a "cult" automatically instills a negative sour taste and red flag with most people; right or left or centrist. So yea maybe I/we think you're all represented by idiot leaders.


"only that you support a guy whose record isn’t the best and it would be nice if you would acknowledge that at times."

Nonsense. This is just semantics in hopes of triggering a response from opposing side.

The remainder of your post is nonsense and written in a manner to incite hostile responses. If your so called "cult" believes in all that nonsense than is it any wonder why opposing sides even some of the left centrists call you "Libtards".

Nice try to insulate yourself by ending your post with that "PS:" line when you knew full well you'd get an onslaught of heated responses.

With that said I did laugh after reading it.

I never liked Hillary, ever but did not support Trump either. Now, I'm leaning alot more toward Trump as I'm liking alot of what he has done and what he is trying to do.

BTW, I'm neither right or left.

The problem as I see it is right/left extremists are both morally and financially corrupt and this needs to be rooted out. These people committing acts of extreme violence are neither right or left; they are low functioning psychopaths thinking they're living in a mad max thunderdome fantasy.

Anyone ever take the political compass test? Obviously it's not perfect and some questions are slanted and one needs to answer honestly, from the gut, don't think too hard. You just may learn something about yourself.

Political Compass Test

Goodbye Lefty

Yeah, he lives outside of your centre of the universe... He couldn't possibly have any idea what his talking about, right?


He claims to be talking for the left in the U.S...

Not to mention that the left in the U.S. doesn't consists of just one woman...

Here is the "left of the U.S." he is talking about...





Here are the leaders/faces of the "resistance/left" in the U.S., or living outside the U.S...







Here are the statements from the "tolerant Liberals/socialists/communists..."



And there is a lot more similar to the above... So don't come here to claim "it is only a few" when it is a majority of the left doing these things, calling for incivility, harassment, and even stalking etc, against anyone who leans to the right in politics...

You're right OSOTC


Blanket generalizations are lazy and dishonest at best. It is people who won't or can't refute/debate the merits of each individual argument who instead want to dismiss every argument as being "from the left" (or "from the right", in some cases)


Now Lord Soros also asked us to pass you on a message, we don’t really like it when you send us bombs in the post (not saying it was you lot but if any of you are thinking about it please don’t). We would also kindly ask that you stop calling us “Libtards” because we are actually quite a smart crowd of hippies. Speaking of which we were legalising the weed before you lot, so we would like some credit please.


This is one message we agree on then. The bomber was a deranged fanatical lunatic who shares nothing in common with most of us (the "right") except the person we happened to cast a ballot for. I can appreciate your statement above rejecting blanket associations/blanket categorizations


"Libtard" is a word that never really grew on me. Perhaps it is because I was a card carrying Democrat (and Independent for a time) for most of my life. But I always thought it was an easy way out of debating a particular issue or view point


Lastly believe it or not but we are not actually all shape-shifting reptilians, most of us are like you. We’re actually quite nice if you get to know us, like to party, enjoy long walks, doing what you do listening to pink Floyd. Most of us have jobs, like you, worry about the same things as you, have feelings like you, yeah so, we wouldn’t mind it if you would try to remember that we are individuals with individual views and beliefs. We will endeavour to treat you lot of scumbags with the kindness we expect from you.

We would like to add more but we are all now running late for your annual blood sacrifice of the straight white guy.


I think more people need to hear this. Helps to remind each other that there are real people on the other end of those view points. We are not merely faceless political drones and I appreciate your effort to high light that

Again, I am not partisan, I might lean left but that does not mean I am declaring support for one political party or individual over the other, I am highly critical of all politicians regardless of their ideology. If you want to talk about my posting history it does support this.


You are exactly partisan and identify with the Left so much you want to send a condesecedning message to the right.

Again, why do you not belittle the Jewish religion the same as you did Christians?

You (The Left you represent) generally often state you're not fans of organized religion but the truth is that it is Christians that bother you. Why is that? Why are you not mocking Jews for their religious beliefs?

It is because Jews are mostly Democrats/leftists so they are on your same partisan side. No real issues mean anything to you. They are are points of debate and a means to advancing your agenda.

But it is not actually "your" agenda. For all your attempts to be witty, you ring hollow. That is because you are a Non-Playable Character. You are trying to forge your own voice but you, yourself, have no substance. You really don't know what you, yourself, personally stands for so you try to act like the intellectual. Like you are above it all. But you are not. You're down in the lower levels of the game with all of us and you have no game plan. No idea what your next move is. You try to be opposite our moves but that doesn't work for you either.

You can't be opposite us because we are not the monolithic group you portray us as. It is a projection of your own lackings.

What do you stand for?
You want to legalize pot?
You support women having late term abortions?
You want to deny people the right to defend themselves?
You are against Christians beliefs in God?

What about any of that makes you proud?
