Lol
I like how Thriller has to tell everyone I'm on ignore but yet responds to people who respond to me and make some generalized post and associate me with the alt right.

Dude doesn't have the integrity to respond to me. He doesn't care to know my thoughts. He cares to generalize me and call me alt right.


@The Thriller if you'd like to discuss my opinions, I'm down. Stop with calling me alt right though. Or, if I'm alt right, prove it.

You're in education, bro. Your words matter. Stop lying.
I'll be honest here, dude. I've seen about 10 posts from you in the last few days whining about Thriller calling you alt-right, and none from him calling you that. Maybe he has, and I've missed it, but you're sounding positively obsessed. I don't care, really, but that's the way it is.

Capital punishment starting with Trump. Does he think this **** is a game? There could not be a more deserving punishment for the most serious crime possible against the USA. Pelosi and Pence could have easily died that day along with other lawmakers. That's no joke.
Agreed.

He is obsessed. We have a history. I have him on block but it’s pretty easy to know who’s posting. Sometimes I’ll show ignored material to make sense of a page and see his vomit. He’s one of the few people on this board who still takes the right’s position every single time when it comes to BLM protests, police shootings, and sedition. I swear he’s “left” the board at least 4 times and yet comes back usually after one of these protests. Just watch. He’ll leave for a few months and will return to take the right’s position the next time an unarmed black person is executed by the police. It’s as predictable as Trump giving a hostage video, being complimented for his “new tone”, only to ruin it 24 hours later with an unhinged rant. Bookmark this. Seriously just give it some time and he’ll blame the POC who was executed.

I don’t like engaging with him (although I remember him being reasonable when talking about sports. His political takes are just awful), it’s usually very frustrating. It’s never very enlightening because of his lack of media literacy. The sources he uses from Ben Shapiro to Ngo, are just bad. Garbage in garbage out. I’ve found many on this board to be enlightening and have caused me to rethink positions. But not him. There’s a real lack of self awareness and humility on his part. Be careful, or he’ll obsess over you too.

Apparently this is what set him off to write “10 posts about me.” Which tells me it must’ve hit close to home. Hi!
“I’m not alt right I’m not alt right!”

He takes an alt right position every time. So even if he’s not overtly alt right, he’s obviously consuming large amounts of alt right material and ignorantly recycling their biased garbage.

I see this often with fellow ward members (usually bored stay at home moms) who post alt right material or Qanon nonsense on social media without taking more than 10 seconds to check sources. I find this to be very common right now, media literacy is just horrible.

I think we’re seeing a segment of our population that’s bored with life (usually whites). So they indulge in extreme and outlandish stories that give their own lives the dopamine and adrenaline that they crave. They don’t check the facts or sources, it’s just much easier to like and share from the comforts of your phone. That’s why they indulge in stories that help support their prejudices (Blue Lives Matter!), cultural grievances, and give them the sense of community (alt right/Qanon/Underground Railroad, etc). It gives their lives excitement, purpose, and a sense of community. They too are an avenger against those godless PC uppidity college educated types, black thugs, and liberal child sex predators!

it’s honestly very similar to what we seen in fundamental Islam and is arguably one of the most pressing problems in American society today. Without a Cold War and with a prolonged period of peace and prosperity, our society has turned on itself largely over issues that actually don’t exist (Q, economic anxiety, etc). Consequently, among this segment of our population, issues in our society that do exist (Trump being a horrible president, the rise of right wing terrorism, police brutality and racism) go ignored. Half this country is living in an alt reality where Trump is amazing and is working hand in hand with Q. BLM is the #1 threat and POC want to take yur job. “Blacks just need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, like whites.” Covid doesn’t exist, and Underground Railroad is praiseworthy. It’s an alt reality.

I sometimes wonder how much different our history might’ve been if Lincoln/Johnson hadn’t been so accommodating to confederates and instead brought them to justice via Nuremberg like trials? If the poisonous Confederacy had been obliterated Nazism, what would our country be like today? What would’ve happened if land had been redistributed to slaves, as many Republicans wanted?

I'm actively accepting bets on how long it will take for Biden to turn the U.S. into a socialist country.

You name the number of months you think it will take. If we're still not the USSA after that date I win.
If/When Biden enacts the Defense Protection Act to compel businesses to produce PPE and vaccines, I wonder if Republicans who’ve been attacking private enterprise recently for making decisions will attack Biden for interfering in private enterprise?

More on the delusion of the Republican party and how they continue to deny truth.

The New York Times: How Republicans Are Warping Reality Around the Capitol Attack.
So I was thinking the best way forward was to let things cool off, to take the high road and try to heal the divisions in our country by turning the other cheek.

Then they stormed the Capitol. After that, I expected there to be a lot of remorse on the part of republicans. I hoped they would have some second thoughts about supporting DJT through four years of his gaslighting and subversion.

Unfortunately, there has been prescious little of that. Too many people are just turning the page on this like it was a prank at the PTO meeting. There are still too many people living in Trump's alternate universe. Where he is the only source of truth.

I'm afraid the only way we break this hold on the minds of the "patriots" is to hold them accountable to the furthest extent of the law; to make an example of these misled fools to discourage more nonsense.

As long as Trump has a bullhorn he will use it to stir up trouble. We have to take it away from him. Maybe when people see what happens to those who blindly follow the wizard they will wake up and stop listening to his rantings. Maybe. If not, we are...

Oh @Archie Moses, your lack of self-awareness as always is easy to point out. I'm not the only person on this board to notice this pattern of you taking the alt-right's position every single time one these situation arises. Earlier in this thread:
I'm pretty sure we've discussed Parlor in years past, but you may have forgotten.

Whenever you bring in a false talking point (which happens regularly), it is invariably a right-wing talking point. You never seem to read the crazy left-wing stuff. So, even if you are not alt-right, you seem to rely on them for a lot of information.
In another thread the last time we had this type of discussion:

Oh that's weird, Archie posting another video from a loony alt-righter.


I'm sure it's just another mistake though.
Archie the reason ive said that is because you're constantly posting content from alt right media. This isn't a terribly complicated situation here.
And your becoming overly defensive (as @gandalfe said, mentioning me 10 times in the last few pages) fits a pattern:
Also lol that you think I'm the offended one while you've been frothing at the mouth calling me out seven or eight times in the last week.
Perhaps some introspection is in order?

If Zombie and I keep triggering you with the same accusation, maybe it warrants a thoughtful response on your part? Maybe it's your conscience calling? You can either assume that all 3 of us, One Brow, Zombie, and I are biased against you or maybe you have a problem?

Admittedly, I've been the most aggressive calling you alt right. If you aren’t alt right you can start by prove it. At best, your media literacy just sucks and you refuse to look inward as to why so many keep levying this accusation against you. At worst, you're alt right and just dishonest about it. But at this point, I'm not sure it matters. This has been brought up several times now and you refuse to do anything constructive about it. So I'm edging more towards you know you're alt right but just lack the character to admit it.

Since I know you're going to react hyper defensively and attack me personally like a rabid chihuahua, let me just state that I'm quite happy both professionally and personally. I'm now tenured at a job I love. I love my students and the content I teach. I've received very high reviews and good feedback. So again, maybe all my students are wrong and you're right or maybe you're just wrong about me?

My wife and I are happily married and celebrating our 5th anniversary this year. We will finish landscaping our new home in Lehi in a few months. We just purchased a cute Golden Doodle puppy and are expecting our first child! I survived covid (it wasn't a joke), the wife tested negative, and we hope that with the vaccine this year we can spend a lot of time traveling and bbqing this summer with friends and family.

I’m quite content with where my life is and quite honestly find it pretty funny when a person of your intellectual capacity and character foam at the mouth while insinuating that I’m indoctrinating students and/or somehow unqualified for my position. I’ve worked very hard and have been very lucky to get to where I am. Luck that probably wouldn’t have happened had I been born a different skin color. I recognize this privilege and just wished POC could be treated like me. The fact that you keep questioning my qualifications to teach is yet another keen insight into your life which might benefit from some introspection? Think about it.

And that's probably all I have to say for you for now. Until next time a black man is executed by the police or right wingers commit acts of violence and you try to blame antifa/BLM!

Not being from Utah but having lived here a short time, I think anyone who has grown up here has been unconsciously indoctrinated by views of White Privilege more than many other places (probably not as bad as the solid South, I don't think) because LDS was originally very racist. Even in more liberal eastern sections of the U.S., it is hard to overcome. So, maybe Archie (who I believe is a native of Utah) is triggered by this. He seems to have good intentions and a good heart, so I think he will eventually come around.
