Which is why I'm not taking your word on it not being there when I can clearly see it until you demonstrate otherwise *shrug*.

So what you're saying is until I specifically criticize Republicans you're going to believe I'm a Republican despite how I've given examples of where my views and Republican views differ? Incredible.

How about this: Scott Walker is a piece of **** and I don't like him. There's the starting point for you.

So why didn't you frame it as a guy being a piece of ****? You framed it as a comparison with how a conservative was being treated vs. a liberal. That's an inherently political way to frame your point.

Lmao is it not implied that a kid diddler is a piece of ****? Last time I checked that was pretty cut and dry and not something I'd need to expressly say.

I think you're focusing a lot on my usage of the term "Kavanaughed", which I basically used as a substitute for "a political figure getting accused of misconduct and facing wrongdoing". I used it cause it was a recent example of something exactly like that that happened.

Nah. I'm saying that's how I see you based on your posting style but it's still up in the air. I just haven't seem much to the contrary and your counterexamples aren't as airtight as you seem to think.

Like I said, you notice patterns after a while and I'm getting deja vu here.

I still think your usage of terms like "posting style" and "Republican mindset" are really vague and specious, but also part of me also thinks that you'll always see my counterexamples as not being airtight unless I go full leftist, which is as counter-intuitive to my beliefs as me going full right-wing nutjob.

I think these "patterns" that you keep talking about have deluded you into seeing malice and opposition when it really isn't there. If you can't take my word and my expression of my positions as proof of my identity and keep using whatever mental quotas you've conjured up in your time being here then this is a circular argument that will go nowhere.

Human brains are notorious for overstating themselves.

What would you say if I said I was very accommodating? My behaviour kinda suggests otherwise, right?

I haven't heard that name for at least a decade lmao. I don't think I've ever physically seen his books in my life...but my e-reader on the other hand...that's a different story.


NOTE: THIS IS A JOKE POST. WINDSOCK DOES NOT POSSESS PUBLISHED WORKS BY MICHAEL SAVAGE ON HIS E-READER, NOR DOES HE OWN AN E-READER.
