Enjoy your view on this. Thanks to your own statements, we know that since you refuse to acknowledge or use quantifiers, this statement means two people celebrated.
Prominent, opinion-forming commentators celebrated before audiences of several million. Conservative blogs were full of celebratory posts and comments. Conservative activist groups celebrated with high fives and cheers. I have provided links to all of this, in this thread.
Two, and two. Enjoy declaring life to be plurals and to never use quantifiers. No one cares that you think six total people celebrated. No one care that you found the exception because the exception never proves the rule. Point at it all you want. No one will even are to dispute it because no one cares. There is no point you are making besides "look at that."
It is also a fact that there was no analogue to this in the liberal community.
So your comparison is wrong, and somewhat foolish. This is a pity.
It is also a fact that you tried to deny that conservatives celebrated.
Actually that quote shows, just like above with the quotaions marks, that you are attempt to accuse and prosecute someone for your own lack of grammatical understanding. It notes you are incorrectly ascribing quantifiers and using that in some word play. But sadly you screwed up because you hadn't played your little quantifier word game yet whereby you try to claim you were only referring to plural.
See if you link to the source here
, you will see your claim quoted above it. (Note this is because I quote people instead of making up quotes for them.)
Your claim is patently false because your sample size is anecdotal and made up of crap you found on the internet.
That is the only claim I made, and it is a true claim, backed up with quotes and links and video and audio that prove that, yes, many conservatives did indeed celebrate Barack Obama's pitch being rejected.
Oh, it looks like you got busted using a quantifier. You declared it to be many.
Many is defined as a very large number or as the collective. You did not prove a large number or collective. You proved, as I noted then, the exception, or the anecdotal. You tried to slip out of this by claiming you merely meant the plural and thus two.
That is all that matters. Your attempt to draw the argument to me, and my bad grammar, and my 'misquoting' you, is very poor, and absolutely transparent, and does you no honour. But, in your phrase, this is SOP for you. It is a pity.
Conservatives celebrated. That is still a fact. You tried to deny it. That is a fact too.
Actually you've found my reply to your original claim which means we have that original claim and can see you've moved away from it.
So for the record we see that you have accused people of celebrating who did not.
You have accused people of objecting who did not.
You've made up false quotes for people and attempted to justify it by claiming it was quoted paraphrasing.
Now we have proof you used quantifiers and attempt to lie about this and instead claim merely that you were referring to the plural.
You're done and so is this thread. Many conservatives did not celebrate. A plural did but the exception never proves the rule about the collective (many is defined as collective.) Go grab an English book and brush up.
Enjoy the last word where you ignore this, just like you've ignored and not apologized for making up quotes and attributing them to people and instead try to circle round again. You've been discredited in four different ways. Any mention of this again in other threads will simply cause me to link back to this summative post.
