This is why leftism in America is so dangerous. There is no such thing as a free lunch. You work, you eat. Basic fundemental truth that has rung true for over 2,000,000 years of homonsapien history.

Either way he’s lying.

The post still exists in the form of a captured quote. You yourself corroborated that you bared witness

Yes. To be clear, I agree that you are correct. Goran wrote something very unclear, which it appears (to me) is common for him. That is not a personal attack. It's just something that I've noticed and pointed out a couple of times. He then called you dishonest, even though you were actually correct in spirit. Oh dear. I see that CIC is still refusing to fess up about who he is. By the way, I remember him calling Obama a nigger, because it was a bit of a stretch, even for him.


It’s Gorons style, to be intentionally dishonest. I always assumed he did it intentionally to be uncivil. Which is also why Iwog left, just to clear up another lie

Whoa Goran will have to ban you for doing that he said it’s bigly against the rules

Let’s see if he’s consistent

Strategist says
Bernie is an idiot. According to him, if everyone makes Zero, you are better off because you are equal.


Is it ok to call this for what it is -- a LIE?


Sure. Now explain why you believe it’s a lie.


The normal way of having a discussion is that the person that makes a claim has to back it up. It is not my job to prove that Bernie did not make that statement. It is the job of Strategist to provide a solid reference to Bernie making such a statement.

As a side note, I might ask Goran_K if he subcribes to the notion, seemingly most popular among right-wingers, that "you can't prove a negative"?

The original assertion by strategist is an example of a lazy hyperbolic statement. There is some truth to the idea that socialists value equality more than rugged individualists. However, the idea that Bernie would favor everybody making zero to what we have now is clearly ridiculous. The sheer number of times he asked for a living wage of $15/hr is proof enough for me that the statement is false. Any discussion worth reading would be based on whether or not a $15/hr minimum wage would be helpful or would backfire.

Sure, but in the interest of generating debate, why don't you challenge his points and point out where there is dishonesty? Wouldn't that be more fun?

I allowed you to drag out and post a comment where someone named Ironman called Obama a racial slur and allowed that to be posted and discussed through numerous posts.

Here, Sniper is asking you a question, and making a point about your previous vicious racial slurs towards me and my wife.

I'm just trying to be even handed here.

Of course I could delete all of your posts about Ironman's racial slur, and also Sniper's comments about your racist tirade as well.

Which way do you think would be preferable?

Yea except you’re lying I didn’t take a post from uncivil jail and repost it to the mains. You were calling me a liar and asked for the proof!

We’re you just baiting me to break your rules?

No I gave you a one time exception because I didn't believe you that Patrick would leave that type of comment up, and I was right, the comment was zapped.

Since I gave you a one-time exception, I think it fair to give one to Sniper.

(Please no more posting errrc's openly vicious racist tirade anymore though Sniper, if you could, thanks)

Again with the lying.

Patrick never censored the post where Sniper/Ironman called Obama a nigger. All of his posts were scrubbed wheN Patrick banned him for trolling his site with personal attacks 24/7.

This is provable. Simply ask @Patrick to confirm that he removed the post in question for being uncivil, and I’ll retract the accusations that you are lying.

Simple enough

I'm not here to "generate debate". I'm here to find the correct information and dismiss and/or debunk the false information.

And by the way, your statement about wanting to "generate debate" is diametrically opposed to what you said in MY thread, where you stated that

If Patrick confirms what you're saying is correct about the Obama N-word comment, then of course I'll admit I was wrong. But in the grand scheme of things, it's no big deal to me, but thanks for your efforts.

I hope we can both agree that openly vicious racism is extremely hateful and the person who would use racism to hurt other people is probably a person who lacks moral character.

If you’re open to the possibility that you are wrong, why did you default by calling me a liar?

You suggested that Patrick removed it

You were wrong

Patrick banned Ironman/Sniper for taking his crusade of disrupting the forum and harassing the free thinking posters, off the web and into the real world. All of his posts were scrubbed in the banning. Including the post where Sniper/Ironman called the President a nigger.

Ironman/Sniper was such an egregious offender, that the post didn’t even register as abnormal.

For all I know, maybe Patrick is ok with people calling Obama a nigger on his site. That, I cannot speak to.

I disagree. It sure as heck is not just volume. Pointing out the shortcomings and self-contradictions of an omnipotent moderator is QUALITY, and to borrow a humorous phrase, quality of the BELTFED variety. Nothing is more important than taking the moderators to task when they do wrong, as you have (IMO) done. Moderation by an omnipotent moderator has been an unmitigated disaster. That is my opinion.

So you don’t find it offensive when Sniper/Ironman posted “Bye Bye Nigger boy!!!” At The President, because racism doesn’t exist?


I never saw him post that. I'm sure Patrick deleted it if that did happen.


See you said you were sure

“if” that did happen, which is another way of calling me a liar.

My recent comment was no more and maybe even slightly less "civil" than the comment I posted that you banned me for, and that the crowd-censors jailed me for. So, yeah, some progress has been made, not because of omnipotent moderation, but rather in spite of omnipotent moderation.

But the fact remains that omnipotent moderation and mob-based prosecution must be stopped.

I agree, and I don't like openly vicious racism, but I'm not willing to delete such comments because "racism" is used in the current atmosphere as an excuse to stifle debate in the press at at universities.

At the moment, I just want to delete personal attacks on other users. A patrick.net user could be a flaming Nazi calling for the extermination of the Jews, and still I would like to debate him rather than simply shut him down.

But if the Nazi is not going to debate issues and opinions, but insists on simply insulting other users, then he's got to go.

Not at all. How many times can I say it? The rule is just don't deliberately insult the other users. Argue something other than the worthiness of the individual. That's about it.

As a quasi attorney (I'm not really an attorney ;), I'd advise you to delete this post. While I don't disagree with your sentiment here, this might not be something you want stamped in the internet history logs. At least the Hitler part. Mohammed is beloved here in America apparently.

Hitler too, but clearly Mohammad has done more harm to mankind than Hitler.
