    Is this satire?
    You really, truly don't understand the tone that particular line was said in?

    Fuck me.

    BTW that video is exactly addressing how you sound and why you got called a "nazi" last time. To the very details. So it's beautiful that you don't get it, truly beautiful.

    So what you're saying is that, rather than forming your own opinions and presenting your own arguments you're going to rely on a YouTube video to do it for you? I'm going to save this post and quote it every time you give somebody shit for doing that from now on.

    Anyway since I'm such an idiot and I clearly don't get it, why don't you explain it to me?

    Yes, totally, that's what I'm saying. It's absolutely not that it's an easy easy to digest to the point deconstruction of the issues that have been plaguing discussion in both this thread and the internet and you got caught in completely, it's totally horrible to have an easy way to show exactly what the problem is, said in a more eye catching and interesting way than i ever could.

    Also have you somehow missed the style of the video, the tone, as must of Contrapoints' content being somewhat ridiculous and tongue in cheek on purpose? That's all that particular statement you chose to dismiss the validity of the entire video is.

    But i suppose it's easier to do that than to face the facts of just how much of a muppet you are.

    The floods are a gubbermint conspiracy!!1
    aka "Fuck those poors, how dare they flood less than 50% of our [more expensive] homes?!"

    Protip: don't build multi million dollar homes in flood planes.

    EDIT: Seriously though, this pisses me off. Those cunts want the government to measure people by dollars instead of measuring people by people.

    I know there is important shit going down in the U.S., DACA and Irma but this shows the fundamental problem the U.S. has and why i call your nation a 3rd world nation.
    In short not only your health system is bad but also your infrastructure and care for people.

    From the article:
    The peer-reviewed research paper, published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, focuses on Lowndes County, Alabama – the home state of US attorney general Jeff Sessions and a landmark region in the history*

    Awesome. They should have the guts to print it and post it across the nation. That will show those evil Mexicans!

    There are not enough psyducks and headdesks and facepalms in the world to describe politics in last two years...

    On the other hand, i couldnt give a fuck about the original video but found this one pretty entertaining. I mean, traps arent gay? Lets be serious here for a second.


    Anyways, i cant be arsed to try to trace back the convoluted, half-said oneliners that mean we MUST call Steph a closet facist, or else be one ourselves. It seems to me that that is part of what the second video decries, and i feel free to agree with the specific point.

    This thread periodically devolves into a state where you need to say, put up or shut up. But noone ever puts up, because that leaves them vulnerable, and blood in the electronic water will surely draw the sharks.

    "Drunken Mongoloid" pretty accurately describes the Doc, I think. He'd probably agree.
