I_Mix_Stuff

Why did you repeat the same group three times?


LordUmbrage

See that could be our first debate. CURSE YOU, TRUMPERS! CURSE YOUUUUU


IllustriousStorm5730

You forgot Libertarians…


LordUmbrage

How can people have a political identity for governance built around "dont tell me what to do government!"


SYLOH

Then again, this kinda ended with 20+ people stabbing someone, so maybe not the best of examples.


LordUmbrage

Well he was a dictator, so its a rich tapestry lol


sweatstaksleestak

Which is why you find the will to walk away. Some battles aren't worth the effort.


LordUmbrage

They insert themselves into the debate, but you aren't wrong


sweatstaksleestak

Insert? I'm going for auto correct there


LordUmbrage

Oh God fan generic swype strikes again Edit -.- I'm leaving it wrong but you all know what i meant


sweatstaksleestak

Shit happens lol. I've killed my best lines multiple times.


Healthy_Yesterday_84

Cancel culture isn't scholarly debate...


LordUmbrage

Did you ever notice how none of those i mentioned engage in scholarly debate? Its almost as though real debates dont tolerate ad hominem, nonsensical or illogical arguments.....


Healthy_Yesterday_84

What? Do you not understand your own post?


ZacHefner

Who are all these middle-aged white guys?


MootsUncle

You forgot tankies 👍🏻


LordUmbrage

Good catch, authoritarians shoulda made the cut but i was distracted with prolifers lol


MootsUncle

Yeah true. Understandable. You gotta get the whole top half of the political compass outta there. If the worst I ever have to debate is AnCaps I’ll take that.


LordUmbrage

"Lets just not have any rulers and let money talk!" Guys no no, thats how we got company towns, slavery, banana republics and narco states. Its a bad idea


RoyalMaidsForLife

Nothing says "shadowbanned" like seeing every right wing jackass showing up on a social media post from President Biden or any news outlet that dares to say bad things about the GQP.


handsome_corgi

If you can’t win a debate against these people, you don’t deserve the internet


LordUmbrage

Oh anyone can defeat their limp noodle arguments, it's just better to not have them clogging up the works


handsome_corgi

I don’t know what “works” are getting done on the internet lol, it’s a free place for idiots to be idiots and it shouldn’t by any means be taken seriously


LordUmbrage

.....it could be.... which is why i made the meme....


handsome_corgi

It could be, but it never will and honestly? shouldn’t be. I like the Wild West of ideas around here, people should be less sensitive to others idiocy


LordUmbrage

Idiocy should be less comfortable voicing itself


handsome_corgi

One of the hallmarks of idiocy is its willingness to loudly expose itself, so that’ll never be case


aaron_j_gonzalez

So basically, you want to ban anyone who disagrees with you? How are you going to have a debate if no ones around to debate you?
