EtcetEraThread Buttigieg finds the third way between Black Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter in 2014 Interview
Reason User banned (1 month): trolling, long history of similar behavior
Wow. You had a good chance to shit on Mayor Booty but you're fine going to bat for a Trumper. I would have thought mentioning your source being a dick who openly supports Trump would have qualified as "interesting." I'll keep this mind the next time I see you posting about Trump's administration.


EtcetEraThread Bernie Sanders pledges to end practice of prosecuting whistleblowers under the Espionage Act. Edward Snowden: "Whoa."
Reason User banned (1 week): trolling (peddling misinformation, ignoring facts) over a series of posts in the thread + history of similar infractions
Did Snowden ever say why he didn't do anything like this doing George W Bush administration? Whistleblowing is necessary for any party who breaks the law, but Snowden's only doing it when a black Democrat in office deserves a side eye. It's not like Bush wasn't doing bad shit in office.


EtcetEraThread Nancy Pelosi mocks AOC & left-wing opposition to Border funding bill: “They have their public whatever and their Twitter world”
Reason User banned (1 week): Antagonizing members, trolling in a sensitive thread, history of similar behavior
Which can mean a lot of things, like understanding how congress works. Not everything comes down to activism or actually being in the real world, many people can't do that for various reasons. Which is why it's primarily from a knowledge standpoint. And why I bring up the movements themselves, not individual people.That's right, you're from the part of the left who is anti-intellectual. All you're interested in is paper thin hot takes, ironic considering all the Justice Democrats and Bernie Sanders himself went to university. I guess they'll have to be canceled. Idiot leftists is right.This is such bullshit. I was sad that there was nothing to be done to help you in this political climate, either by current leadership or President Bernie, and that I wished more could be done. But anything to score some points for character assassination, because that's all that counts, right? Nope, my long game is the presidency and congress - its the left who are riding too much in the presidency, despite my repeated warnings not too. It's telling that you have to make up lies about me because the truth is too inconvenient for your narrative. In the mean time leftists in this thread were ok signing off on condemning all those people in the concentration camps to death because it's about "principles," and no-one would answer what would happen once the funding was cut off. I welcome contradictory voices, it's you guys who will shout down anyone who disagrees. You do the left a disservice, You're the one acting on "thoughts and prayers," not me. Stop projecting. I thought I was getting thought to you in good faith, instead you're like the rest and only engage in bad faith arguments. My mistake.


EtcetEraThread ARM cuts ties with Huawei, threatening future chip designs
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Xenophobia; previous severe infraction for rationalizing prejudice
I mean no longer hiring people from China.


EtcetEraThread Late Show w/Colbert: Full Extended Interview with Rep. Ilhan Omar
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Rationalizing Islamophobic and racist attacks and false equivalencies over a series of posts
Please, when I do it at least I make it about things about extreme over reactions. It's not a default setting I have for the Left.Thank you, you just did. It'd be one thing to do this to someone like Schumer, it's quite another to paint anyone who says maybe she should have phrased what she was say better to not offend other groups in the Democratic coalition, yet the latter examples to you are identical to what Trump and the GOP are doing. There is no grey area allowed.So you're fine alienating Democrats who would be your allies with language which they could perceived as anti-semitic. Glad we cleared that up.


EtcetEraThread House Dems will vote on a resolution in response to Ilhan Omar’s Israel comments
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Conspiracy theories across multiple posts
The leftists have been trying to shame liberals into backing Omar. This framing that anything liberals shouldn't be able to argue about anything is asinine. Particularly when leaving the party was bought up because of this incident or are we meant to forget it when leftists #walkaway?Your first mistake is assuming Democrats give a shit what he or the GOP thinks about anything, we don't. Disagreeing with Omar is not the same as agreeing with AIPAC/GOP. By who?Nope. It is possible to disagree with leftists in good faith. Being in a grass root movement is not a sign that they can't be wrong on things, either. Nobody's perfect.
