Saiga410: Do whatever you want but it is a bit weak that you cannot stand to have your ideology questioned by others.


This is not like disagreeing over a movie or NYC pizza vs whatever that thing they call pizza in Chicago. These are lives. This is safety. This is corruption. This is fascism .  These are people who , in another time, would be cheering Mussolini or Hitler. These are dangerously ignorant people who have surrendered their humanity and , to quote rod Serling..."These men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worse of all, their conscience. "

Given that christian "friends" from the past have dropped communication with me because I'm an agnostic, leads me to assume that "moral" people completely agree that stopping association with racist, child molesting, lying, nazi filth is acceptable.

Hey, Fark, is there any way we can get a HERO tag here for just this poster?


My parents plan on moving from about 5hrs away to less than an hour away very soon. I think they think that means they will see more of me (clearly after Covid is fixed). They will be very mistaken.

Reading the article, it is clear they are scummy people even if they weren't Trumpers.

The worst people will vote for Trump. The worst.

White_Scarf_Syndrome: Leishu: Saiga410: it is a bit weak that you cannot stand to have your ideology questioned by others.

What about your personhood? Is it weak to not allow your personhood questioned by others?
What about the lives of countless latinx people?
What about the fact that over 175 thousand people is a bad thing?
What about the fact that science is real?

How much should people tolerate of bigots before a threshold at which it is okay to not keep them around as friends is reached?

About as much as people should tolerate "Latinx"


So... using respectful language to describe people is just as bad as putting children in cages?

You seem to have a... rather big truncation problem in your priorities.

Jesus Christ.

People think I and others are engaging in hyperbole when we refer to this as a cult.

We're not.

But there is no need to tell you that. Looks like you're living it. Ugh.


The accusations of hyperbole are something of an admission of guilt. When conservatives try to dismiss liberal anger as hyperbolic they usually imply "hey, we made up all sorts of crap to be mad at Obama about that wasn't real. Remember when we pretended to be so mad when he golfed? It's clear you guys are doing the same thing. Both sides, am I right?"

But they can't understand that the left and right aren't the same and the left hasn't normalized the fatalistic loyalty the right has. So the right is far more free to simply lie to people because even if their supporters know they are lying, know they are being stolen from, know they are being taken advantage of, if it's from someone on their side they gladly accept it.

For those curious, the picture of the shrine wall is from the grandmothers house, Who until a few years ago, was a NY born, moved to FL Democrat.

That was until the Fox nation attacked. 

My Mother built the shrine for her, and helped her decorate with those oh so lovely other things. 

You'll note in the first picture, Grandpa's flag is at the bottom, it has been on the mantel for decades until my mother got her hands on it for the TRUMPINFURER Shrine. 

Then his flag went to the bottom, surrounded by Icons of a man who never served..

In the later picture, the clear one you see, its up higher now, as I lost my shiat one year and brought that subject up (Grandpa was a lifelong Democrat) 

Now its a little higher up on the shrine, still surrounded by Trump Icons. 

I haven't been back to visit my mother or grandmother in over a year and changed, The most contact Ive had was to mail them some masks.

But he's right. The Spanish language has two genders. This is just an attempt by mostly white liberals to shoehorn a neuter gender into Spanish as an exercise in performative wokeness. To me, it feels a bit like appropriation. We don't turn "Chicano" into "Chicanx," so why do it to "Latino."

I'm very conscious of the words I use to describe people. I use "aboriginal" or "First Nations" instead of "Indian" or "Native American." "Latinx" just feels contrived to me. I don't see the point.

You're the one who told me my language was wrong. And am I in middle school or over-educated? Your trolling comes off as milquetoast when it's not even intellectually consistent.


When you were arguing like a child I assumed you were a child. When you informed me of your advanced degree, I revised my assessment and realized you were over- rather than under-educated. In any case you insist on using an asinine word which indicates way more about you than you seem to realize. Not least of which being that your opinion is totally worthless.

People can believe a lot of stupid shiat, but there are certain 'politics' that are non-negotiable.

Once their 'political beliefs' start translating into a full on hard-on for nazism/whatever ideologies and it is obvious that you obviously don't consider your fellow humans equals, it becomes absolutely impossible to think of you as a half-way decent human being, and that's it.

Unless you actively distance yourself from that crap I'm not going to choose to hang out with you.

And before you call that hypocritical, remember this:

You know what? I'm Latina. I detest the word "Latinx." I didn't say anything because the person you responded to is clearly on my side in a supportive way and I don't want to be an asshole about things that don't really matter in this context. You're just being confrontational for no good reason. If you think you're striking a blow for anyone or anything, you're not.

LegacyDL: Conservatism died when Eisenhower left the White House.


Nixon, the southern strategy and shuffle. The actual political conservative became Democrats (there were already some) and the neo-conservative Nazi /Klan became Republicans with neo Confederate, feudal regressive trickle down theory and burgeoning Rand anti civilization libertarianism as side dishes.

It made the Republicans walk the trail to pure evil, but also diluted all the progressives and classical liberals in Democratic Party into third way bullshiat.

Petey4335: Combustion: Yep. I dumped an entire family. Feels great, actually.

CSB

A couple years ago went to a fiend's wedding.  Another friend and his wife were invited too because, we were all friends at one point and the newlyweds bought a house a few blocks away from them. The 'what was at one time 2 people in our friends circle that we knew were very republican leaning' slid way way down into Trumperville. No one sat by them. No one really talked to them besides a 'hi'. Just shunned from most of us.

The Trumper couple left not long after dinner. The rest of us had a fun night of drinkin' and dancing celebrating the newlyweds.

I haven't been in contact with the ex-friends since. Very freeing. I don't think anyone else does anymore.

/CSB


How did you all find out they had gone full Trumper? Did they bring it up?
 
2020-08-25 5:21:54 PM  
I went no-contact with my very Republican, very Baptist family last year. Not because of Trump, but because of a lot of other shiat that just happens to coincide with being awful people, which just happens to coincide with Trumpkins.

If I'm ever tempted to extend an olive branch or what have you, I just remember that they were die-hard Trumpkins as late as November of last year, and even though I haven't spoken to any of them recently, I would bet every dollar I have that they still are. And it settles that internal debate right away. Easiest decision ever.

Eh, I find one is all you need. Even if you are partially illiterate like me. I just find it weird that so many folks seemingly conversate on subjects guaranteed to rile people up. Maybe I worked in bars too long, but I avoid religion and politics as a matter of habit. I'm in California anyway, doesn't really matter how I vote so I've always,always voted third party, I'm pretty sure a candidate I've voted for has never won anything.

I've also told them that if they invite Trumpers then I will offer no quarter.  I sat back for close to a decadej having to hear about "birth cercificets " and "soshalism" and "Kenyan usurper", while people told me "Jist be quiet and they'll get over it".  Well, look where the f*ck that got us.  I don't want to know these people, and I'm embarrassed for them, and if my friends won't help me avoid their idiocy then I sure as hell won't tolerate it anymore.

Actually, I have an advanced degree in the topic.

But, y'know, you can keep hiding your head in the sand while culture and therefore language continue to change around you.


I work for a linguistics department. So I am really getting a kick out of most of these replies. Some of you guys are very good at making it sound like you know what you are talking about. But trust me.... You don't. I think you just want to make yourself sound smart, when in reality you dont know what you are talking about. This is how bad info gets passed around. If you dont know about the topic....Dont make yourself sound like you do. Cuz some Farkers belive anything they hear.

What about the fact that over 175 thousand people is a bad thing?
What about the fact that science is real?

How much should people tolerate of bigots before a threshold at which it is okay to not keep them around as friends is reached?

Just FYI:  "latinx" is not a word in any language.

Prescriptivists are funny, and stupid.

So are people who make up words.

Try to be better than them.

All words are made up.

Wow, you're just so clever. So has your junior high started classes again yet?

By the way, don't be surprised when no one takes you seriously in the future. I tried to help you, but if you want to signal to others that you are as gullible as the people in red-hats, that's up to you.

Actually, I have an advanced degree in the topic.

But, y'know, you can keep hiding your head in the sand while culture and therefore language continue to change around you.

Oh, so you're one of those over-educated white people who gets to tell others how their culture (and apparently language as well) is wrong. Whatever would the oppressed do without you to save them? Never mind what I said about you being as gullible as the red-hats; you are as racist. You just found a better way to hide it.

Yeah, don't be surprised when no one takes anything you say seriously, they'll be right not to.


I guess anybody seems "overeducated" if you're proud of being stupid.

I bolded the really ironic part, just in case anybody missed it.

alto_reed_on_a_tenor_sax: I went no-contact with my very Republican, very Baptist family last year. Not because of Trump, but because of a lot of other shiat that just happens to coincide with being awful people, which just happens to coincide with Trumpkins.

If I'm ever tempted to extend an olive branch or what have you, I just remember that they were die-hard Trumpkins as late as November of last year, and even though I haven't spoken to any of them recently, I would bet every dollar I have that they still are. And it settles that internal debate right away. Easiest decision ever.


Good for you
