Arthur Koestler, who experienced Nazi hatred first hand, pointed out one often overlooked failing of the Nazi party; that they took themselves so seriously they were unable to laugh at themselves. At first sight, it might seem a minor flaw, but laughter can be a potent antidote to self-righteousness, hypocrisy and hatred.

That's why I endorse what Neapolitan says; Seinfeld, Raymond and Friends were all great shows imo; cleverly scripted and very funny. And as we laugh at or with George Constanza, Rachel Green, etc we also laugh at ourselves. The sitcoms are great fun to watch and they also make us more empathetic and more human; they innoculate us against the propaganda and humourless hatred of the alt-right and other such groups.

So enjoy the shows and know that in doing so you are taking a stand against fascist ideologies!
( And if I'm wrong, show me the alt-right sitcom that proves it.)

I don't care it was a garbage show. What were you doing watching that show at your age anyways? Boring piece of ****.
Wtf coming from the bitch ass who calls people snobs for ****ting on disposable pop garbage like Linkin Park

Like I'm actually positive you've tried to float the "It's popular though!" argument

No he's not. He's attacking djchameleon for having double standards. He better counter-confront him. DJ better not slunk out. He should step into their *******, close the door behind him and spray paint "djchameleon was here." "Wash me," all that kind of stuff.

You all have snobbish double standards, if you wanna be honest here.

Edit: It's the spirit of MB.

All the mainstream music I like. I have never stooped to using that phrase to back up my liking of something popular. Take that weak ass argument elsewhere.

3rd rock from the sun was pretty funny. I loved it when it was on.
