WHY show this cow any respect?

What respect has she earned?

NONE!


I am so effing tired of everyone being nice and taking the high road and being civil while the opposition is busy dropping trou and taking a taco-bell dump in your food!

And we're expected to say "thank you"!



Because for the most part pettiness wears much worse on the person slinging it than the target.

Also name calling de-legitimizes any point you're trying to make.


Exactly

I always try to make two levels of arguments against things like this

First is the ethical argument. It’s just wrong to sink to this level

Second is the pragmatic argument for people that don’t buy the first

Do you really think you will convince more people by name calling?

I would argue no

As you are demonstrating, it doesn't really matter because you're not here to hear an explanation.

I am not better than you

I assume you like me want to engage is discussion and try to convince others of our opinions on issues

I just don’t see how name calling helps

In turns off people who would otherwise be willing to listen to your comments, and allows people that disagree with you to use those insults and a reason to convince people to ignore you

Convincing people otherwise?

That bus left the depot an hour ago.


Just my opinion, boss.


We're in an ideological battlefield here.

It's past time to change minds.

What explanation?

She's a communist turd.

A foul piece of feces left by Stalin to infect the rest of our society.

That's right.

I called her a piece of poo.

And the left can't say a god damned thing about it because they called me worse.

Let’s say that is true

What is your intention on the battlefield?

If no one can be convinced then what use is conversation

It seems that at least you want people in the middle to side with you

Is name calling more or less likely to gain these people to listen to you?

I think it is less

I'm an old man who spent more time military than not. *shrug*
If I'm threatened, I attack.

Never move backwards, always forwards.

Being nice is what "they" want, so they can run over and step on your throats easier.

It’s not being nice

You can be steadfast and determined with logic and facts

I don’t think that insults will be beneficial at all, and can only be detrimental to your cause

And as much as you fee justified in this, someone on the other side will feel the same

Thus debate based on logic gives way to shouting at each other

Trying to use logic with the leftists is like playing chess with a pigeon.

All they'll to is crap on the board and knock down the pieces.

If she's so ineffectual, stupid, ugly, whatever other colorful remark you can think of, then why are you so upset?

Some people think that way, I guess.

How has that thwarted the Democratic/Progressive agenda so far?

I'll tell you how... they think you are weak and they laugh at you.

And they keep progressing because they don't care about reason or logic or especially debate.

There is something to be said for righteous indignation though.

And flat-out mockery.

Historically, it gave us our current form of government.

Do you think the founders sat around, drank tea and calmly discussed things?

Hell, they were fighting duels and calling each other stupid bastards.

So being "polite" to an ideology that is attempting to turn this country into a Hegelian Utopia is just mental masturbation.

It makes you feel better about yourself and gets nothing accomplished... at all.

An opinion, as always.

They same the same of rightists

And believe it as strongly as you

I am no better than anyone. I know I am sounding smug here, so I will shut up about this

I insult, am petty, am arrogant, am wrong, etc

I am trying to have discussions and some people listen and many don’t

I just don’t see the utility of insults like this

I hate it when cnn laughs at trump supporters as toothless racists, so to be ideologicaly consistent I hate the reverse as well
