Red Text The fact that there is a segment of the GOP that is willing to go against the bulk of the party is a newsworthy, and quite unusual, thing. However, we don't need threads for the ads themselves.

Reason User Banned (5 Days): Sexist Commentary
I do think many of you including myself are living in a bubble re warren. I am getting surrounded by Hillary 2.0 vibes here in MN. My wife says she doesn’t like warren. My coworker best bud says warren is a gun to the head candidate. My mom my dad don’t like warren. These are all lifelong dems and they all don’t like warren. I love her and donate to her and I hope she wins the whole thing. But honestly just the vibe to me is that she’s fucking worse than Hillary at this point in terms of talking about her from people I know. And honestly I will say she looks like a crazy pissed off bird woman in all all these debates. Everyone i watch these debates with says with no prompting damn she looks fucking crazy. Her fucking eyebrows don’t move (and that’s true). Just saying anecdotally I get Hillary vibes and it ain’t good.

If the senate trial occurs before the 2020 election thanks to all the facts 100 perent of all senators will vote to remove him or 2. whatever democrat runs against trump in 2020 will obtain all 538 electoral votes.

EtcetEra HangoutsThread RedLetterMedia |OT| Very Cruel.
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Inflammatory modwhining, accumulated infractions.
Man. I had to just hit ignore on the Etc thread. And the OP, too, who was so thirsty to make sure every complaint got a new threadmark. As the thread descended into a dogpile and banfest it just got really difficult to stomach. I'm hoping that if I can just use the ignore list feature I can enjoy the site a bit more than I have been, but it seems like toxic behavior by people who are ideologically aligned with the moderation's positions is bound to go unchecked, while crossing the moderation's personal beliefs will pretty much catch you a ban one way or another - usually because of the assertion that such disagreement constitutes "defending sexism," or "dismissing racism," no matter how careful the person is to say that they abhor sexist and racist actions they believe are happening, "Drive-by" is one that only comes out if you're not in lock-step, despite dozens of completely disingenuous, unsubstantiated, dismissive one-liners that are on the preferred side of a discussion flying by with no problem; it's a good catch-all if the mods just want to hit mute on someone who isn't down with the position being taken. This is not to say RLM is above criticism, but the discussion is never about criticizing a thing someone said, it's a rush to make a broader judgement call on who the person is. In that kind of environment it is really difficult to make this case that "I don't think they're that kind of person - here's why," even though that's the exact question being begged when the OP begins a crusade to cancel someone. And it's difficult because going there to make the discussion about the kind of person they are is engaging more with the general than the specific complaint, which treads into appearing to "handwave" or "dismiss" or "defend." I love how progressive this place is - the political threads are really fun for me for that reason, this is all just about the toxicity of the discussion trajectory that happens time and again and how moderation enables it. I don't notice it so much when the target is something I'm less familiar with, or if I agree unreservedly in the takedown in progress. In the case of RLM, it disturbed me quite a bit.

This is EXACTLY why those of us with cooler heads insisted "Believe Women" means "treat the allegations seriously and investigate appropriately."

Yeah, this Biden story so far seems to be living exclusively in low rent conservative media, not even Fox or OANN have run with it yet. Makes me think it's already been investigated and no corroborating evidence could be found. If Biden did this, used his aides to create a situation where he would be alone with this woman to assault her, it wasn't the first or last time. That's not some rookie move, it's something you've done before and know you could get away with, and there would be other accusers.

Probably help if we just waited and let this play out however it does. It seriously seems like a ton of people have made their minds up already and I can’t help but think a ton of it relates to people hating Joe Biden’s guts vs supporting a rape victim. Shows even more when people say they’re abandoning the Democratic Party or not voting if these allegations go nowhere or they don’t get the result they’re looking towards. Heaven forbid we wait until mainstream journalists do their sourcing and see what they found.

Reason User Banned (1 month): hostility, inflammatory accusations
If you were serious about any of this you wouldn't have a Hilary avatar. She has a history of silencing victims of assault and supporting her rapist husband. You're literally downplaying/denying her history whilst clearly bullshitting about how you think all women should be believed because looking like you have morals is more important than having morals. I'm in no way downplaying the trauma you went through but you don't care about other victims. You're parading around an avatar celebrating a slave using terf to own Bernie bros. That's what you actually care about.No it's not. Nobody would have argued this with Christine Blasey Ford and nobody thinks Kavanagh was innocent after the hearing/investigation. Everybody here understands how difficulty allegations of sexual assault are to prove and what what "believe all women" means. It was already concerning enough that people who support Joe already like to pretend Anita Hill doesn't exist but this is on another level. He has a history of defending sexual predators and inappropriately touching women/children; it's not as this is some shocking revelation that came out of nowhere. Stop politicising how you perceive sexual assault based on your party.
