    Hit the nail on the head right there. They do this every time, without fail. Predictable is an understatement.

    See there. You're confused but that doesn't stop you from being absolutely sure that your idea's are the only ones worth considering.

    This is actually a very profound observation. This "demonization agenda" has even spread to individuals. Just look at H@triot's activity here. He spends the majority of his time scouring the internet for negative press about liberals for the sole purpose of keeping his "How EVIL are liberals anyway?" thread at the top of the forum. Does that sound like a guy who you can have a rational discussion with? No, he's about as far away from a normal discussion as you can possibly get, as you know.

    In fact, I'd go so far as to say that the majority of conservatives here seem to be on one mission and one mission only -- to fulfill the agenda of their conservative media puppet masters. This forum is a very strange place.

    This isn't about me. It's about the tactics that progressive, socialist scumbags use and how to defeat them. It is for informational purposes only. But feel free to try to turn it into a discussion, if you really want to.

    FYI. I've seen at least one person claim that this is pretty simplistic, or not even valid. That's probably because this is the Cliff Notes version. You can get the complete transcript by sighing up with truth revolt. It's free, and there is a whole lot of good stuff on there.

    How to debate a Conservative:

    Logic.....No, Conservatives have no perception of logic
    Humor.......Any humor outside of slipping on a banana peel is beyond their grasp
    Facts.....Conservatives make their own facts

    You really can't debate a Conservative

    All you need to do to debate a leftist is to throw away all the facts and engage in full rhetoric mode. They are drones incapable of comprehending reason, logic or evidence.

    I'm not sure I understand the point of, or goal in, spending significant effort trying to "debate" a hardcore partisan ideologue from either end.

    Once it's clear that the person is intellectually paralyzed by binary thought processes, my expectations of a normal, open, honest conversation drop by at least 90%.

    It can be interesting now and then, but certainly nothing of substance will be accomplished.

    The first step of which is, apparently, muddying your own waters on what your actual topic is.

    You're still running away from that question.

    Whichever it might be, "Liberals" or "leftists", the entire premise of the thread is built on fallacy; the idea that Lefterals or Libftists, whichever, are some kind of emotional monolith rather than actual people. Call it Composition, call it Hasty Generalization, call it both.. But yes that makes the whole thread point invalid. It's a tactic to avoid the threat of any meaningful discussion at all.
