Public Call Box: oldfarthenry: Has anyone checked in with Ben Garrison's van down by the river for any change with his political affiliation?

He must be connected to some alternate reality where Trump is fit and manly.

vygramul: The thing is, Adams is correct that the "fine people" thing is stripped of context


Bullshiat.

The protest was organized by a white supremacists group.

The counter protesters were there to counter protest the white supremacist group.

Those were "both sides" If someone was there and they were siding with the white supremacist group they are, by definition, not a "very fine person".

He's scared Hillary will finally pay his dues.

SanityIsAFullTimeJob: Scott's a funny dude. Hard to say what's he's actually up to. But this is his reply to some wanker in that same thread.

I think he was just disappointed in Trump's lack of persuasion performance.
[Fark user image 425x642]


Note that Adams doesn't touch the statement that Trump was guilty of racist landlord practices.
 
2020-10-01 5:03:42 PM  
He endorsed Hillary back in 2016.

This is boring theatre.

WhiskeySticks: Dilbert has always sucked.

Murkanen: Mrtraveler01: Original: Original Tweet:
thejd800: .@ScottAdamsSays feels personally abused by Trump bombing on the white supremacy question during the debate. Adams says Trump lost his vote. https://t.co/VQxQstqKso

Part of me hope he's realizing that Trump is nothing more than the Pointy-haired Boss. But I doubt that's what's happening.

He thinks the PHB in Dilbert is the protagonist. Same with Dogbert, Catbert, and the Trump insert he added later.

zimbach: RodneyToady: Oh, thank God! I can finally like Scott Adams again!

Nah, just kidding. I still think he's an arsehole.

You can go back to liking Dilbert from before the animated version on UPN was cancelled.

I think that's when he cracked. He said they dumped the show because it wasn't black enough.

mathamagical: Scott adams man... What a shame he had some really funny writing ages ago. I was hoping he had finally circled back to reality with some sort of stomach dropping nauseating realization at seeing that deep down this was actually the same reality that we had been living in and that he was the one who has been wrong this whole time then he gets right back to:

"Could he win my vote back? Yeah all he has to do is denounce white supremacists"

fark off Scott, if you haven't figured out by now that the trump that openly courts white supremacists is the real deal trump and the press releases from the white house disavowing them have nothing to do with trump himself than you are an irredeemable sucker. Donate your brain to science when you die so they can study what caused your cognitive decline into delusional narcissism.

fiddlehead: AsparagusFTW: His comics are funny and I bought a book of his that I still have to read.

That said......

I dont agree with him politically, but whatever. Funny man is still funny. I know this is Fark and I should banish him to CancelCulture Hell. But I wont. Deal with it. We are grownups with differing opinions.

[Fark user image 320×454]

Funny, I haven't seen a single poster in this thread or similar Adams threads demanding that he be fired.
Most are calling him an asshole.

You want a good office-humor comic? Dilbert is just a Johnny-come-lately rip-off of the vastly superior in every respect (writing [humor, character development, story arcs, etc.], art, characters, etc.) On the Fastrack by Bill Holbrook. OtF predated Dilbert by ~½ decade. It also has in-universe connections with another Holbook strip (the man does three daily/Sunday strips: two syndicated, one webcomic [that just celebrated its silver anniversary a little less than a month ago]), Safe Havens (similar to the connection between Beetle Bailey and Hi & Lois).

Not even trying to be subtle with those ties, is he?


He's also missing like 3 feet on Trump's tie. And oh Lordy those forearms.
 
2020-10-01 5:09:10 PM  
If you watch it, Trump only temporarily lost his vote.  In the end of the video he clearly states, Trump has had 3 years to fix Charlottesville and hasn't.  All he has to do is fix it.  So basically all the racist shiat Trump has done and said, all he needs to do is make a single statement "oh yeah, racism is bad and I condemn it" and he'd get this dipshiat's vote back.

I love that apparently he was surprised by this too.  What a f*cking knob.

When you've lost Dilbert Creator Scott Adams you get out of the deep dark woods as quickly as you can and make sure he didn't leave a trail of pebbles to help him find his way home.

No, it's not quite that. Scott is one the most vocal people on the issue that Trump did condemn white supremacists and nazis at Charlottesville (which he of course did).

Like I said upstream, I think he's just upset Trump lost his ability to get a message across.

Pincy: Everyone be nice to him on Twitter now. We don't want to force him to go back on his word.


There was a long time where, if someone said, "I was wrong about Trump," my response would have been hostile: "Where the hell were you last year when it might have done some good?"

Most of the time now, if someone says, "I was wrong about Trump" the sensible thing to say is, "Thank you for reconsidering. What made you change your mind?" When people leave cults, it's vital to give them a safe escape route. A lot of the reason people DON'T leave cults is because they're isolated by the hostility of those outside the cult.

Scott Adams? "I was wrong about Trump." Yeah, fark you.

I mean, he managed to make Trump's endemic racism about HIM. That's the only way he could let himself reconsider. Not by seeing the damage done to the country or to actual people or to international relations, but by seeing the damage done to HIM. Not one bit of compassion for the lives and livelihoods destroyed by Trump being Trump and doing what Trump does. HE was personally embarrassed.

Of course, Adams has fallen in deep with the idea that people are just bundles of reactions stuffed into meat suits. That's one of those ideas that's not wrong, but it really only goes so far. There's a lot of human ground that it doesn't cover, but he thinks it explains literally everything about everything. No wonder he's a Trumpfan. They were made for each other.

One wonders how heroically Garrison will draw the President, attempting to flee the country for financial prosecution.


I'm guessing it will be a Trump-caricature of McArthur saying "I shall return" from the deck of an outsized battleship as hook-nosed (((lizards))) and bone-in-the-hair African tribesmen threaten him with little spears.

Nah.

Derpbert will spend a week or two talking about how both sides are bad, find an excuse to come back around, and ultimately continue rambling about how great Trump is and how bad libs are.

The only question is if he is gaslighting himself when he tries to gaslight everyone else.

Much accurate. Such genius.

I see Garrison's still imagining a lean and fit Trump.


It's not just him.  Trump supporters in general think he is some badass superhero genius.  They can't imagine him as anything other than some perfect human.  It's nuts.

Because he thinks his fan base is so stupid that they wouldn't understand anything unless he labels it, which goes to show you how intelligent he thinks his fan base aka Trump supporters, really are.

Scott Adams would've been the guy wanking in 3rd class on the Titanic while the room he was in tilted to a 55 degree angle, finished, gone for the life boats, saw that there were none, swan-dived into the North Atlantic, and pulled a rich lady out of a lifeboat, punched her out, took her seat in the lifeboat and uttered to the other horrified passengers "I can't believe this happened to me!"

"If he had said that, I would've said "I'm really happy that I spend so much of my time, and my personal credibility, a great deal of money - I would say that my personal financial situation is way worse, way worse because of supporting the President, there's no question about that."
