>>10925>It's simply amazing to me that you and people like you unashamedly hold to a double standard.
And it's simply amazing to me that individuals as you think insults and dismissals function as arguments.
I've not given a single double-standard here. Regardless of your assertion.
It's frankly very likely why said assertion had no argument behind it.>I as a minority member am not just expected but outright demanded that I spend 24 hours a day and 7 days a week subject to abuse and harassment by strangers:
I find it thoroughly hard to believe you go through your life 24 hours a day getting harassment. Even with the internet.> I'm ordered that I must listen to such types and actively engage with them no matter what the cost to me, no matter how I might prefer to ignore them or otherwise cut them out of my life.
Nobody said that.
This is just yet another strawman.
I had, in fact, explicitly said the opposite, contrary to your dishonest claims;>>10905>"Nobody is. You can leave the computer. You can use the block button. You can close the tab. You can simply talk to other people.">And yet you as a conservative have not just the ability but the expectation that you be catered to by others and have others walk on eggshells such that they don't offend your sensibilities:
Of course I don't. What an absurd claim. Genuinely, now, I've never come across such a laughably out-of-the-world statement as this.
The idea that conservatives are somehow treated with kids gloves in this day and age, as though anyone gives a damn about offending them. Where do you even come up with such a thing?
No. I've been called every single thing in the book, and more. Not for "far right" beliefs, either. Simple things will get me branded a nazi, a racist, whatever sort of attacks I may get. People'll wish death upon me for my political beliefs. To the point I've even had, here, on townhall, someone say they'd shoot me outright and somehow claim 'self defense' purely because of political beliefs they pinned to me, not ones I even held.
Nobody has asked you to walk on eggshells, nor is such a thing I've ever expected.
If anything, I expect the opposite. I expect a pile of hatred and vitriol for simply saying I'm right of center.> you outright demand the ability to cut off anybody in any context no matter what in terms of the reasonableness of how they push back against you, and that demand is always met.
What demand are you even talking about?
I've made no such demand.
leave, to be sure. I can
take a step away. But that's true of anyone. Nor is that something I must demand of anyone.>What makes your political tribe such Goddamn superiors?
Where did I ever even make such a suggestion?
The only person to claim my 'tribe' was superior seems to be you.
I think my 'tribe' is effectively normal.
If one engages with a sweeping brush, I'd say it's got as many flaws as any other.>Why can't I have the right to freely choose in terms of individual expression and personal association the right to live in a community of my choosing, deciding to not engage and otherwise ignore certain others?
I've never said anything against such a stance.
In fact, I've explicitly said the opposite.
Again;>>10905>"Nobody is. You can leave the computer. You can use the block button. You can close the tab. You can simply talk to other people.">What makes it so evil and wrong if I merely happen to choose to turn my interest away from people that I don't care about?
I've never said it was. Again;>>10905>"Nobody is. You can leave the computer. You can use the block button. You can close the tab. You can simply talk to other people.">Why is that such an unforgivable crime, to not engage?
At no point was it suggested to be.
Again;>"Nobody is. You can leave the computer. You can use the block button. You can close the tab. You can simply talk to other people.">Why can only you have that right?
You do.>Why aren't we equal?
As far as rights go, yes, yes we are.
