The_Rorschach I find half the shit you post rather amusing myself, but only because of its pretension. Glad I could throw a laugh back your way.
Apr 27th, 2003 09:47 PM
Sethomas Actually, I thought the amount of time you spent on a rebuttal to my clearly facetious statement that France won the American Revolution, was utterly hilarious.
Apr 27th, 2003 04:50 PM
The_Rorschach Well, I must have missed the reference. I did a FIND for David Duke in this thread and only my post came up, but it doesn't matter.

As for my attitude, you're misreading it. The emphasis was on Duke himself, and his fucked up views. I made maybe a dozen posts with him, most of them just posting the WW2 German national anthem. I feel pretty confident in saying I wasn't using the account for Jew baiting or hating, and it certainly wasn't created with that in mind. Yeah, it was a bad joke, but it was also a brief one, and thats why I say get over it. I mean Christ, thats pretty fucking petty.

I also posted as "Bob" Dobberson for awhile. Who gives a fuck? Humour isn't my strong suit, notice I don't even pretend to use it any longer.

Abcdxxxx I already made a David Duke reference earlier in this post dumb shit...

All I recall is you made some posts under a Nazi themed alias .... I never bothered to call you on it the first time, so believe me there's nothing to get over... but I sure as hell don't forget.... and your "hey maaan lighten up" attitude doesn't cut it. It was stupid, but the most offensive thing about it was it's lack of humor.... pay attention the next time Burbank gives a lecture on "context". i would have loved to laugh with you...lord knows i was tired of laughing AT you.

The_Rorschach Er no, ABC, if you bothered to read any news on issues outside Irael, you would know by the pict that was David Duke. He's a conservative whom seems to think the Republican Party is an SS holdout in the US.

His real life personality seemed like character material so I toyed with it for awhile. You really need to let things go, what was that, a year ago?

Well, since the Clinton administration basically let the support for the intelligence community go to hell during his 8-year tenure, maybe going from zero to something IS an improvement that is THAT observable. Scare the right influential people enough and you can get the money and support to make things happen in short order. I'm cerainly not saying that the terrorist threat does not still exist but I would guess that it has diminished somewhat.

Sethomas If you have to make a special mention of me(), you could at least be more original than that.

What I think will be more surprising, and more unlikely to be revealed any time soon, is how many of those arrests and violations of the Geneva Convention or the Bill of Rights will be found completely superfluous.
Apr 25th, 2003 07:39 PM
Abcdxxxx except it will be another seven fucking years before anyone knows for sure...and maybe by then we'll have reclassified hundreds of criminal acts that should have been seen as terror related in the first place and wake the fuck up. or in seth's case...shut the fuck up.
Apr 25th, 2003 06:59 PM
Sethomas I was referring to Spinster's post, dumbass. It's good to see that quadruple x elevated his imagined attacks to "racial bashing".

Back to the topic, I think that we haven't seen as much terrorism as we were made to expect because 11.09.01 was meant to be a large assault in a vacuum, not the first strike in a planned-out string of events. It was expected to usher in a change after which others would be inspired to take smaller-scale strikes, kind of like how white suburbanites started mailing anthrax to each other. The individual was expected to take over for Al Qaeda, which knew that it would be taking huge risks to continue in organized movements. The problem with that thinking was that individual discontentment generally doesn't strike out without a more consolidated catalyst. That is, while would-be terrorists may have smiled at the fall of the WTC, they're luckily too chickenshit or lazy to imitate it. Count your blessings.

AChimp We should ALL go to Loveline and post in the Circle Jerk thread. It will make us all feel better after having to read this bland argument over who called who a ****** and said the other was a Jew.
Apr 25th, 2003 06:45 PM
The_Rorschach This will probably earn me the animosity of everyone on this board, but you BOTH sound like snivelling little bitches and I wish you would just shut the fuck up.

This entire thread should be fucking wiped just so noone else has to read it.
Apr 25th, 2003 06:38 PM
Abcdxxxx Who said anything about the left here? Who said anything about the general i-mockery population? Huh? Is your brain fried or what?

Anyways, as for Seth.......Seems I'm such a shitty human being, all his assumptions and stereotyping MUST have some validation. I mean, It's okay to racially bash someone if they're a shitty human being right?
Apr 25th, 2003 06:18 PM
Sethomas I don't have to know anything about your religious practices, as the depth to which you present yourself as a shitty human being speaks volumes on how such things really affect you. I still find it hilarious that you can get this riled up and still can't think of anything better to call me than a bigot, when you have provided no evidence that I can be called as such.

I think it's clear that the vox populi of the I-mockery community isn't as adamently left-based as people think it is. The conservative crowd is much larger here now, for better or worse, and the obnoxiously liberal such as Ranxer don't get any slack from the general crowd. The majority here is left of center, but not extremist.

Last I remember, I don't recall any al-Qaeda sympathizing Muslims posting here. If anyone did, they'd get what's coming to them too, I'm sure. Point is, you have no basis on which to suggest this double standard among the people here. Your perception of this double standard comes from a gross generalization of what you perceive to be the contradictory behavior of the "left"; making these gross generalizations is something you do quite eagerly, and intentionally, whenever it comes to any ethnicity other than yours.

And if you want to bring up that ANSWER thread, don't, because the very first thing I said about ANSWER was how awful it was that they promoted anti-semitic rhetoric.

Abcdxxxx " you don't apply your cultural heritage to things as relevant as religion or diet. Granted most of my Jewish friends don't eat kosher, or do so only on special occasions, you set up your victimhood as a verz transparent façade. You exploit your culture as if it gives you more credibility. "

Maybe you confused me with Burbank for a second cause you sure as hell don't know shit about me or my religious practices (and you obviously have little true practical understanding of the Jewish religion if you think any of that is grounds for "exploitation" accusations to begin with) ....shut the fuck up with your boring assumptions.

This thread and my original contributions to it had NOTHING to do with my race or religon till YOU BROUGHT IT UP. Stick to the Lovelines where it's easier to disguise such fuckwad bigotry.
Apr 25th, 2003 05:10 PM
Sethomas That paragraph alone says it all. So desperate for a jab that you thought that particular joke about kosher dietary laws was even funny? P.S. I had a pork bun for lunch.

God, you have a poor memory. My point last July was that you don't apply your cultural heritage to things as relevant as religion or diet. Granted most of my Jewish friends don't eat kosher, or do so only on special occasions, you set up your victimhood as a verz transparent façade. You exploit your culture as if it gives you more credibility.

You said last summer something along the lines of "who cares what a white Catholic has to say." Living in the Protestant Bible Belt, has it ever occurred to you that I've probably been dealt more prejudice than most of your Hebrew brethren? Have I ever tried to make myself look like a martyr every time someone quotes the KJV instead of the Vulgate? Why don't I hold Vince in any kind light, despite being comrades in faith?

You'd get a kick out of the Loveline forum, I bet. A kick in the ass, perhaps, but a kick all the same.
Apr 25th, 2003 04:47 PM
Abcdxxxx Seth "I've never "brought up your ethnicity", except maybe when I told you that I was to eat pork one evening at Loon Lake Lodge last summer. I merely point out the fact that you have a masturbatory preoccupation with Israeli interests that makes you an ignorant piece of shit when it comes to anything else. Give me one example of when I've used bigoted language or Jewish slurs. Show your cards, asshole. "

Seth "Don't you think that if I wanted to talk about the Jews, I would bring up those whom I've slept with? "

Fetishizing race? Oh yawn. The only thing biting or funny about that is the dillusional pretense that you've even had sex. Loaning your copy of David Duke's "Jewish Supremacism" to a cute Jewess co-ed is not sex.

At least my comments about you being Catholic were made in a fucking thread titled CATHOLICS... and I didn't have to resort to stereotypes or slurs to do it.

Burbank - the point being that even when people represent their opinions with some ethnic pride, it's not an invite for racial comments. i realize the bigots among us, failing miserably to excersise some self control call this a "double standard" .... but EVEN when someone like Al Sharpton or Farrakahn (both extremists and ethnocentrics in my book) stand up representing themselves by their ethnicity, it's not okay for someone to respond with slurs and invoke the topic "slavery" to an unrelated debate, right? this is no different to me as a jew with comments about the holocaust and my "victim complex" .

Zosimus you guys are so off the thread... lets instead all bow our heads in honor and respect for the almighty lord and saviour, our great president, who has saved the (un-)United States Of America from the great "evils" that lurk in and around us

Since there are fair shares of conspiracy theories being spout about in America, I will bet you that if another "9/11" or bombing happens again, just look for the left-behind greasy trails leading to the White -washed- House doors. I've been told that this is were the "evilist" terrorists hang out these days.
Further more, I will add that we are not yet through with ploughing "our" way throughout the entire Middle-east... think of the oil in Iran, and all those "non-christian, EVILS" that still lurk about in the countries that we have not yet attacked!

All we need is just a few more zillion $$ to support us/US in our noble crusades!

mburbank "there's a different between self pride in ones ethnicity. and singling out someone else for their ethnicity in a derogatory light.... don'tcha think?"

Why, Acdxx, that's an almost Vincean sentence! But to be fair, of course there's difference. I was merely stating that your 'self pride' does seem ethnocentric in it's singlemindedness. Single minded enough that I get a little uncomfortable you are imagining me 'playing' with my 'dreidel'.

I don't think anything you've said is grounds for a bigotted response at all. The charge, however, that you see everything through a single lense has some merit. Your lense, while quite different from mine, is at least informed and your arguments are reasonably well structured. I might accuse you of having a chip on your shoulder, but you're certainly not an idiot and I always think about what you say.

You, on the other hand, have repeatedly made remarks on the fact that I live in the midwest and that I'm Catholic. Hypocrisy like that makes me wonder how you can have any sense of identity while harboring such blatant double standards. And when have I talked about the Jeeeeeews? Don't you think that if I wanted to talk about the Jews, I would bring up those whom I've slept with? Nah, I find enough material talking just about you. I don't care if you're Jewish or not, it doesn't matter. You're an extremist, simple as that, and your cultural background is hardly relevant. You're also an extreme hypocrite as I've pointed out, which makes it even more ironic that you're constantly on guard against ethnic attacks which have yet to come.

The_Rorschach Vince is just some clan-assed Nazi robot. Like Smarterchild, only with a randomness generator hard coded into his programming which produdes random typoes and grammarical errors in order to make him seem more human.
Apr 25th, 2003 01:29 PM
mburbank I don't know Vince, I think it's more likely you actually describing me giving you a 'rim job' is evidence of a 'secret homo-fetish'.

I don't think it's anything I'd have imagined myself.
