Start another Michelle is a tranny thread, Jas


I haven't been here but a few months, but it seems periodically Jasmine works heself into a righteous lather and decides she knows what's wrong with the LNF forums and lo and behold it's the liberals. Or, anybody to the left of Jasmine, which is pretty much everybody here.

Meanwhile ever since I got here I've noticed that Jasmine, and her sidekick Bert, live to derail any serious threads with a liberal outlook. They'll mock, insult, and undermine. If anyone objects, Jasmine calls them a "f*g" and tries to use ridicule to silence them. Meanwhile she pretends to be a Christian, but I don't know where it is written that Jesus advocated the murders, acts of war, and discrimination that Jasmine embraces on a regular basis.

Jasmine calling anyone here a hypocrite is mind-boggling. Che's a bag of hot air, and Bama summed her up rather well a month or so ago... clever but unintelligent with a mean streak.

But then I remember that I have the same capacity for confirmation bias and cognitive dissonance. I have the same capacity to ignore the obvious.

Oh, we all do. I don't think it's scary. We're just being human.

I make no bones about it: I'm as partisan as they come. But I just do my best to stick to my principles rather than to party politics. In other words, I'm loyal to my beliefs, not political parties. When you do that, I think, it makes things easier.

It's us "just being human" that makes it so scary.

It's easy to lapse into "blind" thinking. No doubt we all have our views and values but we don't all blindly support one tribe or party when they are hypocrites or when they betray our principles. We don't all ignore evidence that contradicts our beliefs, even when it is staring us in the face.

I think that's the big distinction.

But yes, I think you are right to focus on principles over party. That's a good way to stay consistent.

Yes. That's why I find this topic so interesting.

There are two possibilities here for those who don't see their own hypocrisy: One is they're too stupid to see it. And the other is they actually see it, but refuse to acknowledge it.

I'm not sure which is worse.

It is us "being human" that makes questions necessary. You, somehow, being above human, as you somehow claim, makes your claim of her humanness invalid.

You exist as a joke which believes said joke exists above mere humans. We, the mere humans, laugh at you the so called superior being that has no job, and no way to support the family they are responsible for, and no experience or certification in what you claim to be.

Before you criticize others, look at yourself and your shortcomings.

I tend to think it's the first. And it's by far the worst of the two, in my view.

Oh man. I bet it feels good to let that out, even as jumbled and incoherent as it is.

I kinda disgree. Sometimes stupidity is just stupidity. It can't be helped. You wouldn't fault a mentally retarded person for not knowing calculus.

Honesty, however, is something everyone should have. You don't have to teach it. You just have it.

Dude, you're nothing. You cannot support your family. You have no job. You claim the title of Economist, and never worked in the field. You worked on the dock counting boxes, and although that was an honorable job, you either quit or got fired and decided to trade bitcoins.

You're a joke.

Harry, why are you doing this?

Did you have difficulty reading what I posted? Do you understand the meaning of the words that you use?
