Even if I were totally neutral in all aspects on the political forum, I would still see more hate-filled rhetoric on the left.
You just can't have a rational argument with irrational people, I guess.
So, you're saying if you weren't biased, you would still be biased against liberals. As proof of your ability to see issues objectively, in spite
of the fact that you've just admitted you're biased, you have labeled all people you disagree with on political issues as irrational.
Why don't you take a minute to look up the word rational? See all that nonsense you just typed? That's the opposite of rational. Believing your
opponents are insane is a sad defense mechanism that relieves you of any responsibility to listen their viewpoint and fairly examine its factual
The fact that you only see and hear what you want to is known as confirmatory biases. While you disregard any and all hate-filled rhetoric of the
right, you simultaneously search out and fixate on any such remarks from the left. This conduct would be quite evident if you took some time to
educate yourself at your local college or university. Become a critical thinker, whether you change your viewpoint or not, at that point at least
you'll be able to carry on a semi-coherent argument lacking many of the fallacies you currently hold on to so tightly.
