this is a fascinating rhetorical tack that has taken shape over the last few decades. what some refer to as gaslighting is more so a scenario in which someone says something where the validity of an idea is dependent on two statements that are completely opposed by reality. in a sense it's a pragmatic use of the liar's paradox. in the statement contains a requirement of denying pragmatic and empirical data to evaluate, and whence done unseats the observer from their sense of stable truth.

it's brilliant, but i wish I could assume it's intentional. often feels way more just an accidental showing of how disparate the notion of verifiable truth is from the meaning of words, or held belief within a fair portion of the population of this country.

yeah, I didn't get banned, yes i've been lurking but gooooood lord.

long winded way to get your buzzword in but alright 

 

one doesn’t invalidate the other. i wasn’t saying to that justify anything going on in the states right now, was more to explain why I don’t have the kind of knee jerk reaction you’ve just displayed whenever someone brings up conservatives and that maybe the fact that I’m from Canada could have something to do with that.

This is beautiful. It looked like a sports riot sort of, there were even people with face paint and mascot hats like it was college football or some shit. I can't believe only one of them got popped. I think they're literally too stupid to understand why one of them did get popped, thinking this shit is a game, lol. I saw Twisted T cans in the plate carrier larp'n action. A great start to 2021.

The commentary here in no way supports what you said.

Since you are Canadian, are you making a distinction between your perception of conservatism vs the recognized usage of the term regarding US politics?

And I used a buzzword to show that there's actually more to it than just bandying it about.

Longwinded vs saying "this makes no fucking sense and you're incapable of critical self reflection before you speak so I'm going to give a charitable read here?"

Which would you prefer?

I'd also suggest looking into "mutual exclusivity."

And yes, saying that the conservative party in the US is "more left than democrats" on the issues you listed when the demonstrable history shows to the contrary is in fact a case of mutual exclusivity and thus renders one invalid in light of the other.

Humanity has progressed to this point because we have chosen to agree on a shared semantic value to the weird squiggles we read or hear. When you start fucking with that, you make it impossible to have any amount of appreciable conversation or civil argumentation.

Yes. That is what I was trying to explain and why it has influenced how I feel about it in a broader sense. Cant remember if its in this thread or the other but I'd said I didn't condone any of the violence from today. You jumped in and assumed I did

I assumed that you referenced two concepts that didn't make any sense when joined together.

 Not in regards to what is happening with some US conservatives now, no. In the sense that it has influenced my own personal perception of some of the shared values with US conservatives in the broader sense, yes.

What other misinformation are you currently holding as true in your beliefs?


Sounds defensive. I could go through the various threads you’ve made and we can count who’s got more. I think we both know the end result tho.


Cheat is carved from stone too

Yes. Scared of a ban.

 

You guys (Hua, Crooked, Abrasive) go around talking about getting banned all the time.  Is anyone sucking your teeny tiny scared little chodes for it?

 

You're getting mad fame on the streets for saying you "almost got banned one 12oz" or something?

 

I don't get it.  Please explain your infatuation with being banned so we may understand.... since you haven't been banned.  You guys keep teasing that you're going to "leave for good" but then you always come back.

 

Here's your stage to keep circle jerking.  Everyone's the winner when you share the wet biscuit guys.
