Nice subtle brag you got a like
I don’t want them deleted now. I want to hold this over this shithead in perpetuity because he’s incapable of admitting he was wrong
Sterling right now:
I just wanna say that I was really offended (even angry) when CB made that Bruno Mars thread and I managed not to accuse him of hurting his BFF
delete all of these please
Oddly, he's screaming defamation over a pretty common rhetorical device that he's decided to take literally
Lmao that thread is such a failure wes tegg nice idea but you need to get that unpinned
He can ad hominem me all he likes, where i draw the line is where someone to prove a misguided point accuses me of one of the most reprehensible things in society. And instead of admitting that it was too harsh, he’s only doubled down. So, yeah, I’d like to put a scare in him.
He will just blame it on a gas leak
Wrong, I'll tell you why in that thread
Nothing can convince me. I’ve seen too much at this point. I’m jaded
If you’d like to have a nuanced discussion about the disparate impact of food deserts on minorities, their connection to segregation and Jim Crow, etc... I’m all ears.
If you want to continue implying that I’m a racist for pointing out that diabetes and obesity are an enormous problem in this country, that cuts across all racial and socioeconomic borders, then I’m going to continue to tell you to go fuck yourself.
I made a mistake for saying that fast food is bad for you and the obesity/diabetes epidemic can’t be boiled down to a racial or socioeconomic explanation? How?
I’m glad you’ve learned and grown up. Please don’t take that as license to accuse others of being racist with no cause.
1) Some states require the crime be one of moral turpitude.
2) No reasonable person would believe I actually alleged you did that. I was clearly responding to your patently offensive loaded question with an even more ridiculous one. I used the literal dictionary definition of it on purpose you nitwit.
He wasn't really accusing you. Anybody who has taken a high school rhetoric class understands that phrase isn't to be taken literally. Poor taste? Sure, maybe. Literally? C'mon
A rhetorical device is making fun of someone appearance or calling them a loser for being a stay at home dad. Calling some a wife beater is nowhere close to being in that same ballpark.
He phrased it like it was information he had.
It was bullshit
Yeah, that’s not how that works. He’s satisfied the elements and as phrased it’s enough to that plenty of people reading this without context reacted as if it were true and they just were not aware of it. It was not “clearly sarcastic” as Pokes claims.
And ten years ago it would not be an issue but knowing what we know now this shit is unacceptable. If there is 0.1% chance that this comes back to hurt Clown Baby it’s too much.
Yeah, it's always phrased that way. I certainly took it for what it was, a ludicrous throwaway line in response to the ludicrous accusation to which he was responding.
Good luck to him with that police report
Moral turpitude is not clearly defined and certainly a judge would agree that an accusation of domestic violence would qualify as such. Just admit it was fucked up and that my implication that your were being slightly racist did not warrant your response.
When I first saw the word on here, I thought "nog" was short for noggin, like your head.
I think I thought that for at least a few years.
Judges have taken rhetoric classes too. They're far more likely to come down hard on you for wasting their time. Good luck scaring anybody.
FWIW I have no dog in the fight of the actual argument here. I just find it funny that you're getting so worked up about something I've seen said online many times, with no attendant hysterical reaction.
For the record, I do not beat my wife
Used to write retard all the time until someone buzzed me on this and made me realize that it was really offensive.
I was always pretty shy about the racist shit, you guys were scary at the beginning of this board...and on rivals it was absolutely ridiculous
Are you under the impression that this is a criminal situation?
Taking a high school rhetoric class certainly qualifies you to weigh in on what is facially defamatory in order to survive a motion for summary judgment.
I just want an apology for the guy taking it too far and I think it’s insane that the guy is incapable of admitting that he could’ve chosen any other insult
I'm under the impression that this is a tragically hilarious situation.
I haven't taken high school rhetoric, but I have taught pre-law courses at UCLA, so there's that. I also exercise common sense.
At any rate, good luck with that whole outrage thing.
Oh man, you taught pre-law? Well, then I take back everything I just said.
And for someone without a dog in this fight you sure are vehemently defending the guy who called me a wife beater.
He didn't. It's weird that you can't understand that.
Like I said, good luck. If internet banter gets you this worked up, you need some
Internet banter typically does not include one of the most reprehensible acts imaginable. And you pretending like it’s de minimis only serves to marginalize victims of domestic violence.
Jesus Christ, you sound like you're new to the internets. I know you aren't, which makes all this so weird.
Internet banter = check down tua sucks, bama players are dumb...etc.
Not acceptable internet banter= do you still beat your wife.
Again, a reprehensible accusation was thrown my way with no context which led some posters to ask what they’d missed. That’s not banter.
Clown Baby, I’ve both prosecuted and defended defamation lawsuits. This ain’t it buddy.
My offer, however, still stands: apologize for calling me a racist and I’ll apologize for responding with the dictionary example of the question fallacy.
Side note—I always thought that murder or rape were the most reprehensible acts imaginable, but it’s good to know misdemeanor assault qualifies too.
This is banter: I feel like AptosDuck probably got a D in his HS rhetoric class. At the very least, he failed to pay attention on the day when fallacies were covered.
I honestly want to beat all of you right now.
Clown Baby is the weirdest poster
Clown has always been the better one
This thread exemplifies why TMB mostly sucks
because you post here?
I didn’t outright call you a racist, I said “you’re just dying to support your proposition that brown people are killing healthcare.” You responses with “Do you still beat your wife, Clown Baby.” These two statements are not on equal footing. I followed my statement up with “You made a racially insensitive post, which does not make you racist. It happens but it can be a moment of growth.”
So, I’ll take my apology now.
What do you mean exactly?
It’s a popular opinion right now but I am wondering why, it seems better to me than it was just 5 years ago
I’m sorry, anyone else been called a wife beater today? Get fucked if you don’t think that’s a bullshit thing to say to someone.
Ironically Clown Baby is one of my favorite posters. I think all that bird law has gone to his head.
I have principles just like you do, man. And domestic violence is something i don’t think it fair game to joke about if that was your intention. A simple “I took it too far”’ is all I’m asking.
Well I was going to tell everyone about my Arby's order today but this seems to have gone in a different direction, there goes my Labor Day weekend plans
Oh I’m sorry, you only implied I was racist. Oh geez that changes everything.
Apology....not accepted. Say it like you mean it—no explanations or qualifications—and I’ll do the same.
You first. You explicitly apologize for your explicit statement and I’ll explicitly apologize for my implied statement.
Everything. I had everything for lunch today. That sometimes happens when you get brown-out drunk the night before.
Don’t worry I edited it for accuracy
