Absolutely horrific that this man was re-elected 4 times, served 16 years as (R) Senator for PA's 48th district.


yep, the re-election 4 times and serving 16 years is all you commented on.....
wonder why......


Those were 4 opportunities for scrutiny that failed.

Both his political opponents and his supporters failed to uncover that he was a Pedophile. Power begets immunity and it grows with time.

It is equally horrific when a Catholic Priest Pedophile serves for decades.

Want my reasoning? Just ask.

As far as the (R) in that sentence. I removed it when a poster complained. You are posting from the sentence I included in thread for transparency sake.

As far as the (R) in the original article? It is against T&C to alter articles and ethically it is a bridge too far to edit articles to please wingnuts vulnerability to be triggered.

As far as bolding "Pennsylvania state Sen. Michael Folmer (R)" in the actual article. I honestly thought nothing of the (R) being bolded, I thought of it as an identifier and frankly am still stunned how many right-wingers were deeply triggered. I made absolutely no correlation between Republicans and Pedophiles in the OP or in posts.

It speaks to something odd, maybe involving Pizzagate thinking, I don't know, but it still amazes me the amount of anger and deflection over the letter (R).

The republican state senator from Pennsylvania has resigned his seat.
Now the senate president must request a special election to fill the vacancy.


Never sure until he goes to court, but his uncontested resignation and his only comment/defense to police and public being that he is "going through personal issues" makes him appear guilty.

especially child killers




Well certainly. I'm just saying I'd rather have my kid murdered than molested, and I think most on here would agree with me.


A child can recover from being molested. You're ONLY thinking of yourself and your own demons. How selfish of you. You're wrong on what most people here would agree with since unlike you we're not all self-involved.

Ask a child if they'd rather be dead or have a memory of a Catholic Priest feeling them up.

The hubris involved with making such a statement as yours is unfathomable.

Three replies to a single post from the same person. I've seen two before, but I believe three is a record.

Where's that "triggered" meme when I need it?

Being blatantly lied about triggers me.
It's an ethics thing, your post(s) suggests you wouldn't understand.

WTF?,
I think you are seriously overestimating that.

This sounds like the kind of thing a parent who kills their kids before they do themselves would say..seriously..WTF

Apparently so does being exposed... oh, wait, those are the same thing now, right? Exposing someone's hypocrisy is now "lying" about them.

Sorry, but it's hard to keep up with all the new definitions.

Dude? Sorry, but you are obviously a racist because you question those on the left.

Or a Nazi. I can't keep up.

But it's either racist or Nazi because when you can't argue the substance, you have to go with the old standard to avoid actual exposure of the information exposed in debate.

I think "Nazi" means someone who does things that leftists don't like. "Racist" just means "I don't agree with you and I can't explain why."

So I think that makes me a "racist." Unless someone changed the dictionary again.

It appeared you were horrified by his job, and not his crime.
Wonder why that was?

No, I was fully transparent in my editing and went as far to post in thread showing the edit before and after for reference to readers.

You acknowledged that post.

Then you later fabricated a lie that I hadn't been transparent and continue to perpetuate that lie.

You are dishonest and frankly trolling and lies is against ATS T&C for a reason, even more so employed for the purposes of personal attacks and topic derailment.

It is all here in the thread.

For those that want context to previous posts, I edited last sentence of OP from

Absolutely horrific that this man was re-elected 4 times, served 16 years as (R) Senator for PA's 48th district.

to

Absolutely horrific that this man was re-elected 4 times, served 16 years as Senator for PA's 48th district.


You responded at the time clearly acknowledging the transparent edit and thanking me for it:

Post-edit:
"Absolutely horrific that this man was re-elected 4 times, served 16 years as Senator for PA's 48th district."

Now I can agree with you, assuming he is guilty. Unfortunately, it is difficult to know beforehand when someone has such a disgusting fetish. The best we can do is to remove them as they are discovered.

Thank you for the edit.

TheRedneck


Then this where you knowingly lie about those circumstances.


originally posted by: TheRedneck

Ah, and let's not forget that you also edited out where you specified the (R) again in your commentary but later on edited it out. Do you think I have forgotten that? It may not be visible now, but the memory of it is still enshrined in the replies to you before you edited.

.....

Even worse is to then edit out the part n the commentary and then act like it never existed!

That is the lowest of the low, and explains the divide in this country very, very well.


Your own posts expose you as an active liar, willing to fabricate accusations to personally attack posters and derail legitimate Ops that you think inconvenient to your partisan views.

Because it is a job of public trust.
You do not find that significant or relevant?

There is a reason that we find it double horrifying when a Priest, Politician, Teacher or Day care worker etc. is a pedophile.

These are positions where they have exploited the public's trust to skirt Justice and Abuse Children

sure
if it was exposed prior to his election
seems in this case it was not

as it was the only added commentary by you, it appears you thought his job was horrifying and not his crime

as I posted, it was unfortunate you framed it the way you did

Odd you perceive it that way.

So a headline that reads:
Cardinal removed from public ministry after sex abuse allegation
www.cnn.com...

You interpret as the author finding the occupation of "Cardinal" horrifying? But not the sex abuse?

I don't believe your perceptual dysfunction is my responsibility.

Objectively it is a bizarre tact you are taking.

Liar means someone who makes false claims despite clearly knowing the truth.

A Troll is someone who attacks a poster personally rather than addressing the subject matter in hopes of derailing the topic.

your only commentary



Absolutely horrific that this man was re-elected 4 times, served 16 years as Senator for PA's 48th district.

odd you wrote it that way
no mention of the crimes charged in your quote of the op or your commentary, just his job



Folmer was charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography, and criminal use of a communication facility. Senior Deputy Attorney General Christopher Jones will prosecute the case.





I don't believe your perceptual dysfunction is my responsibility.

nope
it is not
but pointing out your commentary only includes partisan hackery is not a dysfuncion
had you included anything of substance in such commentary this would not be a discussion

oh and your attempt to relate your partisan hackery to a cnn headline is delicious and most likely unintended on your part

You apparently missed the OP Headline and the article that preceded that commentary.

Strange.
