Would it be so crazy?

Would it be so crazy if we had a 24-hour DU cease-fire? A temporary truce?

No whining about the Third Way, misogyny, and the other stuff?

Just good thoughts. Just to see what it would be like.

2. It's a nice thought.

Sad to say, personally, my headspace is more here at the moment:

7. Thanks, no worries

 

I'm immune at this point, anyway.

4. 24-hour DU cease-fire? I think most people here get along just fine

 

The people who start shit are right wing trolls who get off on things like misogyny, racism and homophobia.

They'll drop turds in certain threads and run away while proclaiming their innocence.

Deep down, they aren't really DUers.

You *real* DUer, you?

...in favor of McCain aren't real DUers.

Right?

Would you agree they're right wing trolls?

17. Here's one huge difference between you and me.

 

And it's perhaps the only huge difference: intellectual honesty.

Every few thousand posts, I write something that I believe at the moment but don't usually believe. When I do, unless I think better of it within a few minutes, I leave it up rather than self-deleting, because it is what it is. In the case of the one post - out of tens of thousands of mine - that you reference repeatedly, it's pretty clear what's going on in my head.

You, by contrast, when found to be posting things that were utterly contradictory, ran way back in time and self-deleted inconvenient posts en masse - until it turned out that while your posts were deleted on DU, they lived forever in the Internet Archive:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=5293474
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023688801

And, indeed, it's pretty clear that you make stuff up out of whole cloth just to be belligerent:

18. Here's the problem, Manny

 

I know you very well. Your intention in this OP is to annoy feminists by saying they shouldn't whine about misogyny. You're pretty easy to figure out. I've got you pegged perfectly and you know it.

You pull up deleted posts and think that, somehow, that's the same as wanting a Democratic President's election overturned in favor of a Republican:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=3995915

Then you attack Hillary Clinton by using a right wing source who claims Bill Clinton raped Hillary:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025333469

More on that source you tried to use to attack Hillary:

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/05/13/even-fox-guests-say-ed-klein-isnt-credible-so-w/184881

-----

You've exposed yourself time and time again. You've even admitted that you voted for Reagan.

The fact that you wanted Obama's election overturned in favor of McCain is something you will NEVER be able to escape from.

Me? Some deleted posts. You? Wanting an election overturned in favor of a Republican who wants to bomb the shit out of every country.

Ya...that's the same thing....

19. So I'm truthful, and sometimes wrong

 

Whereas you're demonstrably untruthful, but always right.

Got it.

Yes....you did tell the truth when you admitted that you wanted Obama's election overturned in favor of McCain. You also admitted you voted for Reagan.

We know that...

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!

11. Or falsely telling people they aren't genuine feminists, social justice advocates, etc.....

 

Because they disagree with a few things that other person has written, which isn't good, either.

21. Okay, how's this?

 

You may be a genuine feminist, but a lot of the words you use in your posts here read like anti-feminist drivel.

Just trying to give you a little insight to why you get the responses you do.

6. I'm staying far, far away from the misogyny thread. It's way too heated right now.

Like you, I'm trying to stay in a positive frame of mind and just don't need the drama. I love that song. Right now I'm listening to meditation music, so it is definitely helping me stay mellow. Only love truly transforms the world.
