36. Hey ... Leave me out of your self-victimization. ...

 

And 1SBM's passive aggressive, "I didn't call you racist" as though a poster has to use the actual words in the proper order to make an accusation. That brand of intellectual dishonesty has always been the most infuriating strategy to me. If they are going to say something then they should have the fortitude to fucking own their words and not try to weasel out of them.


And, the point remains ... No one has called Bernie a racist and those Bernie supporters that have been called racist, have been done so with cause.

You want to talk about intellectual dishonesty that infuriates, how about your constant "interpretation" of what someone "insinuated" to arrive at a claim that wasn't made ... time and again, even after being corrected time and again. Then, you have the nerve to say that someone should have the "fortitude to own" what you have come to understand, even though it has never been said?

That is straight up intellectual dishonesty, at its best; but, bullshit, as it stands.

ETA two points: 1) I have no problem saying exactly what I mean, I don't need you, or anyone else to "interpret" what I am "insinuating", especially after I have told you what I did not say. 2) I am a firm believer in the maxim, "the guilty heart needs no accuser." Reflect on that every time you wish to insist that your "interpretation" of someone's "insinuation" has you as a racist.
