Blanket statements

As we get closer and closer to the 2008 election and the vote on proposition 8 approaches the amount of epicly stupid shit flowing through the newspipes and arriving, steaming on our laps is increasing dramatically and make no mistake, I wish I knew enough about Voodoo to cause catastrophic anal prolapse on the protesters in the video below. The thing is, a lot of you are feeling the need to apologise on behalf of your nation - this is a ridiculously arrogant thing to do and you can fuck off on behalf of me and anyone who agrees with me 100%. So stop it.

On the other hand, when someone says "Jesus you yanks are fucking mental" and you feel the need to point out it is only a small minority that are acting like that you're ignoring the simple metrics that get Bush into office twice, that keep Rush Limbaugh and Bill O Reilly on the air and keep buying Ted Fucking Nugent albums. Metrics that go a long way towards proving that your country is actually batshit insane. Embrace it and accept that when we say "Sweet dancing Jehova, you're all allowed to own guns?" we're not talking about *you* in person, we know you're not ALL gun toting mentalists so you can stop getting all huffy about it.

It isn't that far off the mark (and thinks its a GREAT stereotype for baiting people who take their nationality too seriously.

God bless America and the Republicans in it's current state...because I'm not going to bless that country and would rather take a dump into G.W. Bush's open mouth then vote for him.

i'm not sure what you're ranting about here exactly, but you're railing on people who feel at a loss for control in their own lives and with their own government. surely ireland doesn't know anything about that.

also the california 'yes on proposition 8' (as it's a state-only thing, not national) are horrible.

[edited: i said 'exactly' like 15 times in a row. fixed.]

I'm railing on people who think apologising for the behaviour of others makes a difference - see, you know and I know that those "yes on 8" dipshits are horrible fucktards (and you have yet to apologise for them so I'm not railing on you even by association) but apologising for them like I see so many of your internet countrypeople doing is just ridiculous. I want to see them condemned as the bigoted pricks that they are from ALL right thinking quarters, not the sad, resigned "I can't do anything about them so I apologise for their existence" SHIT that means they've pretty much drained the complainer of the ability to properly spew vitriol where it belongs.

These people are scum, idiot fucking cunts with no more right to walk the streets than a fucking rapist. Bigoted FUCKS who need their reproductive organs removed right there on the streets and stuck into machines that can produce kids for homosexual couples assuming we can ensure that the genetic code for being a fucking asshole can be stripped out.

As for me, I still have regular dreams where kill our helpless "leaders" in a variety of interesting fashions, so while I can understand the helplessness I'm never short of the hate these people deserve.

Keep the hate American left wingers.

Ahh, see, now it makes more sense to my simple american mind. :)

Less mealy whining and shrugging of shoulders and being a liberal pussy, and more standing up even just a little to say "NO, I DO NOT AGREE WITH YOU AND FURTHERMORE I AM NOT GOING TO KOWTOW IN THE INTERESTS OF 'COOPERATION' WITH PEOPLE I THINK ARE TOTAL FUCKBAGS TO BEGIN WITH". It's OK to not like someone based on their fucktarded ideology being completely contrary to what's good and right. Stop trying to reconcile your own beliefs with idiots.

Does that sum it up well?

The trick is to not become slavering idiots spouting rhetoric and hate ourselves, though.

Yeah, thats about the short version and I'm not even sure about your last point when it'd be a lot more beneficial to spend the bandwidth we'd usually use reconciling with them to spew the hate right back at them being as how it seems that hate and easily memorised talking points are the only language they seem to be capable of working with.

Well, it may be the short, easy answer but it's more like shitting in your own pillowcase to keep your retarded cousin from sleeping in your bed if you ask me. That's what they're doing, and why we find it so repulsive. I refuse to stoop to those levels. I'm self-aware enough that I don't *need* swollen rhetoric and base-emotion appeal to sway me to one side or another, and I'm fair sure that anyone in their right mind operates in a similar manner. The key is, *I AM NOT, AND REFUSE TO BE, SO EASILY TOYED WITH*. And further, if there is someone who is so willing to be fucked with and even worse to be the one doing the fucking, well, fuck em with an immersion blender for all I give a toss, I'll have nothing to do with it and will be busily telling them so while making my own world as best I can.

I am no longer sure that enough people are in their right mind any more. Maybe its eight years of election season partisan bickering (which seems to have been contagious and spread *everywhere*) or maybe its even longer spent watching rational discourse fail so miserably when faced with loud catchphrasey ranting or longer still of watching good people get trampled because they think everyone should be allowed to express their opinion but I'm getting right sick of being on the losing end of arguments simply because I'm trying to play fair^d^d^d^d according to a set of rules that dickheads do not subscribe to.

That or my anger management classes are so long ago now that all the benefit of them has utterly faded.

Or put it another way, I'm not even suggesting anyone lower themselves to the level of the twits in the video, I just can't stomach seeing another person apologise on their behalf. Those people are fucking scum, they deserve to be labeled as fucking scum and whenever they come up in conversation they are referred to and treated as fucking scum. Not tolerated, not apologised for, not even compromised with because they are fucking scum and that fucking scum will not compromise with you or treat you in a civil manner.
No need to start acting like them but equally there is no reason to treat them as equals in any regard.

I agree with you there. And one needn't be a raging dickhead to stand up and say "This is not OK. What you are doing and what you are saying, is absolutely not OK, and that means that you are not OK either. Get the fuck out of my face, get out of my government, and get out of my life."

But you can't ignore the retards, either, because not only does ignorance breed ignorance but oh does ignorance love fuckin'.
