    I know. Far better if these guys who have "conversions" were never jerks in the first place. He can undo his Republican membership, but can he undo all the harm he did to gays, and undo all the anti-gay propaganda Republican homophobes derived from GOProud?

    He still has some hefty penance to perform before his sins can be washed away. Just as I've spent my life in service to the gay community, merely for my own ignorant but innocent denial into adulthood, even though I never harmed any gays. Given his long GOProud tenure, he's facing a lengthy purgatory in this life and the next.

    Take the splinter from your brother's eye only after you remove the log from your own.

    The arrogance from the Left is very amusing, especially since they remain deliberately ignorant of it. Unwavering and hedonistic faith in one's own opinion to the point of such horrendous arrogance from the likes of you really don't help your case icon_razz.gif

    list any left wing organization that actively lobbies to restrict the rights of others. They can do penance too. Go Proud's actions have been public record and they are no friend to equality rights.

    I suspect you're arguing with one of the conservaposse's socks. This one is particularly "smard"....the other day it was pushing that Hitler was actually a liberal democrat, and that American Democrats wanted to take America down a fascist path. Why? Because the Nazi party name had the word "Socialist" in it....you know, "proof". icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif Even when provided source after source that "fascism is a right-wing ideology", it still argued the same, unmoved.

    I personally don't believe anyone (especially a supposed 18yo) raised in a commonwealth country could be so poorly educated....I choose to believe it's a trolly sock. icon_neutral.gif


    That's the problem. You choose to believe things.

    And "source after source" may say the Nazis are right wing people, yet if you look at their behaviour, they displayed no right wing policies. Centralised power? Socialist. State controlled property? Socialism. Unacceptance of anything that disagreed with them? You and other Leftists have displayed such unaccepting and intolerant behaviour of anyone who disagrees.

    You see, the Nazis, other than perhaps their Imperialism (which is different from Nationalism), displayed all the behaviour that Left wing ideologies do.

    Yet you have the arrogance to assume that the only evidence people like myself go on is because of a word icon_rolleyes.gif And that I am simply uneducated yet you don't know one bit of my life. I don't assume your life, do I?

    Assumption is mother of all fuck ups, and you and other Leftists love to assume that every Conservative or Libertarian is an idiot, simply because we hold a different position.

    Over confidence sows the seeds of one's own destruction. We can see that in every Socialist government. They always end up failing with debt exponentially rising and standards of living falling.

    But you choose not to believe that, don't you?

    Oh, I'm not being snide, that's your own over-sensitvity speaking. Now, given that your liberal party is not liberal, you should understand that Hitler's party was not socialist. Are you getting this logic?

    We have a right wing prov gov't. Our fledgling liberal party was taken over by members of the previous right wing party that had gone down in flames. They kept the name, and turfed the liberal policies.

    No, you don't have a right wing government. Right wing ideology reduces government intervention in everything.

    Yes, you were being snide. Now you're being bitchy.

    America changed the meaning of Liberalism to their own. Socialism wasn't changed by the Nazis. It was adopted, and used economically.

    Should I? I wouldn't mind trying dog. A lot of Asia eats it, so it must be good for some of them, right?

    I don't have disdain for people, I simply think that many are wrong. The difference between me and people such as yourself, is that I observe why I think that and put reasons for it.

    The Left just hates the Right simply because it's not the Left. Simple

    For an 18 year old to even begin to claim expertise in the nature of nazism and socialism is ludicrous in the extreme. I would as soon and as productively discuss it with a 12 year old. Your comments so far are embarassing.

    So because you refuse to constructively contribute to what I'm saying, you resort to Ageism?

    Right. You're really winning the debate now. Just resort to insults! icon_biggrin.gif

    Also, you slander me for being too young for you, but you would discuss it with someone even younger?

    Your logic is seriously in question.

    So the projector accuses me of projecting? I'm not insulting anyone. I am describing the tone of your answers. I can change that to being deliberately annoying and knowingly very unhelpful.

    Is that better for you?

    I am also being quite reasonable, as I'm backing up what I say. I just view your opinion as incorrect, and I am pointing out my reasons why. If I have appeared to exude the behaviour of Leftists such as YourName2000 and Upper_Cdn, then I apologise.

    You see how he refuses to question himself, believing so arrogantly that his opinion is the ONLY correct one. So much so, that he will pretend I don't exist. That's the only way he can function here, you see.

    The Left just ignore what doesn't coincide with what they think.

    The fact that the refers to me as an 'it' also speaks volumes about his character.
