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.

Sadly, errc is trying to use the Liberal tactic of "Projecting" and blame others to try and justify his behavior lately.

It's not working.


Are you denying you posted that when you were here as Ironman?

What happened, you regretting what you said now?

Incorrect. Patrick banned Sniper when he posted as Ironman. He never deleted the actual comment, it was collateral damage when he banned his account.

Please stop lying, that is uncivil @Patrick

In addition to ironman calling Barack Obama a nigger, he also called Michelle a monkey and a dude. There was a surprising amount of traction on the Michelle being a dude concept.
Patrick deleted the user account because of the doxxing. It had nothing to do with the nigger comments.

To be fair, he said that he didn't think that the post exists in one sentence. He then said that he knew it didn't exist in the next sentence. That is the kind of clear thinking and excellent writing that we should all strive to achieve.

How is that proof?

How do we know you didn't go in and edit that comment that guy made when you quoted it? You probably changed his quote just so you could make some obscure point.

Also, why are you so bu...


We know because we saw it with our own eyes.

I’m curious why you’re denying it now. Do you wish to renege on what you said? Or are you too high to remember posting it?

You seemed to have such conviction back in January, that you felt calling The President a nigger was civil and added something to the thread

Many of us came here for a civil exchange of ideas, driven by a thirst for knowledge. What happened over time, in your opinion? Why was civility lost and who is responsible?


The above is why I came here, too. I wanted facts that I could not find elsewhere. I wanted insight. I wanted knowledge. I wanted the stuff that was not in the newspaper because the newspapers were completely controlled by Realtor advertising dollars. But apparently knowledge is no longer what this site is about. The only way to get back to the good old days is to throttle the volume (which I think is the true meaning of the word "moderation" ) of threads and comments. Then the crap content will die a natural death.

So, you think coming to a PRIVATELY owned forum full of anonymous posters should be the source for accurate facts and knowledge?

You do get plenty here that's not in the newspapers, and not found elsewhere, so why are you upset about that?


You think returning to a forum that you were banned from is civil?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
