Goddammit, why do these people look so much like me?
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Did somebody order some hypocrisy?


No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

OTOH, that is a pretty impressive rant and a good reply to most of the crap in this thread.
I operate under Crocker's rules. Feel free to be mean to me, if it'll help us communicate more effectively.

Found on r/conspiracy:

Quote
People keep talking about how the Russians are infringing on our democracy and are trying to influence the will of the people, but all I see are Jews.

Jewish media, Jewish lawyers, Jewish politicians, Jewish special interest groups...

I know this is a touchy subject.

I have to say, I did not start life thinking like this, and I actually don't consider myself an antisemite. As a matter of fact, my viewpoints about the state of Israel/Palestine can be considered quite conservative (though I have grown ambivelent in some respects).

And yet, I just kept noticing all these strange "coincidences"...
I also pissed in an old woman's sauce pan when I was a child. Have you?

Coincidences?

Like all the *ahem* "coincidental" agreements that r/Conspiracy users have with antisemites?

If you break off the people for whom health insurance would be affordable and let the market work, and combine that with a government program designed to cover the otherwise-uninsurable, you lower both direct premiums to the individual AND total overall cost of insurance.

The government program would obviously need to be paid for by tax dollars, which would come from income taxes, and not be directly tied to an individual's ability to pay for their care.

There's a lot of devil in the details of such a concept, but please explain why you think such a concept wouldn't work from a total AND per capita direct cost perspective.

Because the free market is bullshit and buying what is essentially your life is terminally moronic.

The free market isn't bullshit in itself. It's how it perverts the profit motive when it comes to health insurance that's bullshit.

The free market works perfectly fine when it comes to consumer goods.

From Twitter user "heterogamingvet"

Quote
this is what they want to turn gaming into some gay multicultural jerk off session not on my watch #GamerGate



This was shared by a actor that I follow on FB with the comment "What's it like being an incredible scumbag?"
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."

After taking a look at HeteroGamingVet's feed with the original intention to laugh at his stupidity I'm 99% sure he's a poe. His other tweets make it more obvious:

Quote
I can beat any minority, homosexual, or woman at any video game. This is what makes me the leader of #GamerGate

Quote
I didn't ask for these women and gays  in gaming #GamerGate

The problem with his style is that many of his individual tweets are just believable enough to take them from parody to poe territory. When retweeted by someone else you don't have the rest of the feed to provide you with more context of what he is doing.

There's also the problem with GamerGate satire looking and acting no different than sincere supporters. So, yes, this one looks ridiculous, but he's so close to what sincere supporters actually say and believe that he's pretty much indistinguishable.
