What do you call 10 people at a table with a nazi? 11 nazis.
@laser it's true and you should say it
@laser "Guilt by association". Sorry to have to say it, but whatever one's politics, this is just plain logical fallacy.
@ej I dont care what you think
@laser Sure, no worries. I'm not looking for an argument or anything! Can provide citations re. logical fallacies, though, if that's any use to you? (Not trying to be patronising, just aware that what I alone say carries very little weight.)
@ej my logic is not phallic! I'm simply saying if you support a racist party, that makes you racist.
@laser I'm def stealing "my logic is not phallic"
@laser To prevent the seriousness of the topic derailing the discussion, is it cool if we use a proxy?
For example, I nearly always vote Green: am I automatically an environmentalist, then, regardless of whatever else I believe, say, or do?
@ej listen dude, i do not want to debate your nerd ass
@laser Okies, sure. No need for name-calling, though.
@ej ok nerd
@Aleums @laser @ej Ehh. I would disagree. This whole trending thread is super ‘holier then thou’. If supporting the Republican Party makes you a white supremacist because the party is racist. Then, by your own logic, supporting the Democratic Party makes you a white supremacist because it is a racist party. ... ignoring that fact speaks for itself
@ej shut the fuck up turbo nerd
@citrustwee My intent is to defend* logic, not Nazism.
I abor and reject predjudice and hatred of all kinds; this asbolutely includes Nazism.
I also strongly believe that illogic and false rhetoric are very bad things for society - even when used by people I agree with politicaly against people I disagree with politically.
(Don't want to spam loads of text so I shan't go into reasons why unless you actually want me to!)
*Although I guess maybe "promote" might be more the mot juste!
@laser im appreciating the replies cause theyre outing themselves as shitbags that i can then block. All of what you said is 100% correct
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
