Nobody sane denies there is a legacy.

The differences of opinion are over what caused it, what perpetuates it and how to address it.

Accusing the right of dehumanising tactics is amusing, as stereotyping the right as, oh for instance, being chimps, isn't new.


Its jot about being sane, its about being informed. The problem is both sides tend to default to negative responses, mainly due to the negative emotions they elicit. That the left engages in language intolerance does not mean the right's efforts are validated, especially given historical context. The right certainly has the right to be offensive, but they don't have the right to not be criticized for it.

See here's the thing. The rights attitude that "everything is a joke" ignores historical context. Note that the source of this attitude all links back to "gamergate" and the online gaming crowd. The problem is these folks grew up under progressive language intolerance, resenting it without understanding what birthed it. Hundreds of years of real racial, and gender oppression. We are living with those after-effects now.

 
Yes, that is where it came from, but PC overdoes it today.
 
And for adolescents nothing is more fun than poking fun at those that claim authority. Always has been part of them to be without respect. And on the internet you will always find someone being offended by something and make him or her scream.

The Pepe/gamergate/Kek crowd are no longer "adolescents". Yet they still rejoice offending people.

 

 

They feel offended by what the loud PC screamers throw at them. And yes, many did not grow up on both sides. I guess that is a consequence of stretching youth into the twenties and thirties now?

I know, but the point is the terms are used for "awareness" by both sides in the same way, even if they mean aware of completely different things. ;)

 

Language has subtle but important meanings.

I know that's the unintended irony. They are offended by the left being offended.

NO, but we are amused by it.

And guess what, we'll use that NPC meme more because you're offended by it.

What is wrong about having indiginous blood?

 

Trump's grandfather was a draft dodger and brothel owner.

Sounds like he would fit right in at the next I&I ^_^

Twitter just released data showing nearly 4,000 Russian accounts and 10 Million tweets from bots/trolls.

So how many from NPC? Right 0 because it is made up as a laugh.

Sooo then why did Twitter wait a whole two years to release this info? After the election Twitter would only cop to 200 Russian accounts. Keep the insults coming.

Has anyone ever been found who was swayed to vote the way they did because of these Russian bots the media makes such a big deal about as if they're somehow worse than brainless celebrities or ideologues telling you "vote X or you're racist/sexist/homophobe/bigot".

Any examples of "I was going to vote Hillary but then saw that picture of her arm wrestling Jesus and changed my mind."?
