CNN turning some Irish uncle into a fierce and clueless anti-racism keyboard warrior is somehow way funnier than a million Floridian aunts getting into qanon via memes.

I disagree. I should be put down as quickly and painlessly as possible.

I wonder if this miscommunication is due to me being a poor and lazy communicator or to your references and categories being limited to what you have picked up from the post-2016 "leftist" podcast boom. Seems like a bit of both...

I'm very familiar with and often impressed by various leftist analyses (and some right wing ones too). But between that and adopting the identity of a "leftist" there's a yawning chasm, which I don't remember crossing.

Why would I be a "disappointed leftist" if I've never bought in into Marxist teleology, for instance? My thing is to try to think critically and being a "leftist" seems like the opposite of that. Needing for some reason to show "solidarity" with a TV-addled uncle cause he's picking up some of the correct buzzwords? Yeah, sounds about "leftist".
Gentle ribbing is practiced by friends. You are not my friend, nor will you ever be. You seem, for whatever reason (probably a valid one, says everyone here) to have taken an instant dislike to me, but I've had fights with the greats: Frownland, YorkeDaddy, OH... you ain't in the same league, son.

And TV-addled? How dare you say ... sorry, have to go watch TV.

It wasn't; it was nasty and insulting, but these people live in their own world so what can you do? The truth holds no power over them, and reality is what they say it is.

For a split second, I thought I was headed for another YorkeDaddy confrontation.

I do know that Troll has historically been vulnerable to personal attacks here, a couple that were way more personal than this to be fair to Jadis. Does he(Trollheart) show a little naivete when looking at American issues? Being an American myself (and just bordering the south), I'd have to say, yes. He may have seen George Floyd on TV in Ireland, but here, we're actually living it. And you can see the lines being drawn right in front of you.

But I also know him to be very well meaning. He's trying to understand what makes us Americans tick and why we have this inner need to hate. It isn't uniquely American, of course, and it isn't even uniquely white; we all have the ability to irrationally hate.

Anyway, I'm not sure who is a lefty or a righty (safe to say Anteater would be a Republican or Tory though?), and maybe it doesn't matter.
I'm just an ignorant Irish guy trying to educate myself. Heinous crime, I know.

Batty's a great writer. Don't underestimate him.

FYI, for those who care, I don't watch CNN. I watched it during the run-up to the election, through it and into the insurrection, but only because it was the only US News channel we can get. My news normally comes from our own national TV station, RTE, also BBC and SKY. Oh, and goes without saying I slavishly watch the most trusted name in news, Kermit the Frog's Muppet News.

Do you want to cover some Colombian women with fudge or is that a reference to buttsex?

An ex of mine is from Bogotá and a few of my old pals were from Bogotá, Medellín, and Cali. I could dust-off my old address book and see if I still have any of those connections in that part of the world.

That’s right: I am a free-thinker, a neutral arbiter, always above the fray. I value nuance, balance, reason, objectivity. My opinions usually coincide with those of the smart folks at Davos, the IMF, the WaPo and WSJ editorial boards. I trust the experts, not those who lead with emotion. I despise Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders alike. I respect Trollheart and I ducking love science. That is the jadis credo.
