    They used rhetoric that a lot of conservatives have been using, and so Fox decided that meant the writer was anti-conservative. Were it me, I'd wonder what was going on in my movement that so many...
  2. Give me a break. First, I never said censorship,...

    Give me a break. First, I never said censorship, on purpose. So, thanks for the strawman.
    But as to the rest, it's all true. RWs just can't have anyone criticizing tthem. Because that IS called...

    Especially the idea that Trump came from nothing...
  4. I don't know that I'd use that term, in that IME...

    I don't know that I'd use that term, in that IME it has come to mean "anything a RW doesn't want to hear", but that's also why it's funny. They do it, just won't admit it.



    I think we did see...
  5. I don't see this connection at all. Not...

    I don't see this connection at all.



    Not even close to true. People have killed them before, and OTHER PEOPLE support them. Taking from this that all conservatives are evil is wrong, that's on...
  6. I would disagree, in that I see/read/hear LWs...

    I would disagree, in that I see/read/hear LWs talk about their ideology, the structures needed to grow or sustain it, and so on all the time. Not that any particular idea can't be seen as "common...
  7. Oh, I agree. I have yet to watch them without...

    Oh, I agree. I have yet to watch them without seeing hyperbole and innuendo used to tar anyone with whom they disagree.
  8. This is bizarre and somewhat obtuse. RW ideas are...

    This is bizarre and somewhat obtuse. RW ideas are so ingrained in superhero comics that the reason people take note of other ideas is that they stand out.
  9. Michael Moore has been silenced at some venues....

    Michael Moore has been silenced at some venues. Linda Ronstadt was. The Dixie Chicks were. It happens a LOT but RWs refuse to acknowledge it, even while saying it's ok to do.
  10. I have had the same discussion with friends, and...

    I have had the same discussion with friends, and this is pretty clearly true. Going to be an interesting decade or so, I think.
  11. I should have read further in before responding,...

    I should have read further in before responding, since you made the same points as I did.
  12. Did any superheroes support the war in Iraq?...

    Did any superheroes support the war in Iraq? That's conservative. Have any of them stopped themselves from using their powers to change society and just fight criminals? That's conservative.
    ...
  13. No, there is another significant difference at...

    No, there is another significant difference at play here. The RWs often refuse to see that their politics ARE politics, I've repeatedly seen them say that conservatism isn't an ideology, that they...
  14. Or, more often to the point, "Stop injecting YOUR...

    Or, more often to the point, "Stop injecting YOUR views into my escapism", as if keeping it dumbed down so as not to offend RWs is a good thing.
    Interestingly I've seen people say things like this,...
  15. I honestly doubt that is true. I've seen this...

    I honestly doubt that is true. I've seen this kind over reaction many times over decades and it's often clear that the people talking know nothing about the medium/genre.
    As to the fact that SoS...
  16. The problem I see with this is that it ignores...

    The problem I see with this is that it ignores politics infused when they are something the person agrees with. Wanting the status quo is every bit as political as wanting change. And I have zero...
  17. Pretty true. I know people from all over the...

    Pretty true. I know people from all over the world, and they think our leftwing is pretty much right of center, mostly, and that our politics is so right-shifted we can't see that.
    Except maybe...
  18. Politics are part of almost ANY comic, no matter...

    Politics are part of almost ANY comic, no matter how much people go on about escapism. It's just that, again, if it's RW politics (propping up the perceived status quo being the best example) they...
  19. Comics HAVE taken strong conservative stances on...

    Comics HAVE taken strong conservative stances on things, for decades. But a lot of RWs don't know that, or notice it, because to many of them (through both my own observation and things they...
  20. I can never tell if things like this are meant to...

    I can never tell if things like this are meant to be serious. RW opinions are everywhere, and when I see people complain like this all I can think is that their expectation must be that their opinion...

    There was a DHS report, widely reported on, that was canned because it talked about this.
  22. So, according to the recap, they DID kill Atom...

    So, according to the recap, they DID kill Atom Smasher. Well, that's it for me, then. I loved this show the first season, but I'm out. No matter how much I looked forward to this season.
  23. But the kid wasn't profiled because he was...

    But the kid wasn't profiled because he was muslim...



    No, what we "like" is to remember that not everyone who is a muslim is the same as the terrorists. Is that a problem for you?


    ...

    I've watched his stuff for years. He is FAR worse about muslims. Far worse.

    You kinda did

    in the dawning days of the burgeoning PC movement.

    That implies it was fairly new.
