I asked you "Is this flyer with a gallows on it OK with you?" And you say there's nothing in it especially violent.
You must have missed the part that said "All baby killers come to unseemly ends EITHER BY THE HANDS OF MAN or the hands of God" DIRECTLY UNDERNEATH A FUCKING GALLOWS WITH STUPAK'S NAME ON IT.
And then YOU tell ME that my bias has "blinded me."
Just re-read the previous sentences a few times. Think how your argument might look to someone who doesn't know either of us.
I'm editing my post here so that there's less to distract you from the next sentences.
I understand that you're desperate to "win" this, by finding equivalences that aren't there, and denying point blank that there's even a problem, and denying that the rhetoric is poisonous and uncivilised.
But this is a mistake. This isn't simply undignified and cowardly, it's a political miscalculation.
What you, meaning the Republican Party and its supporters, should be doing is distancing yourself from these extremists, and condemning their behaviour. You're making a political miscalculation because THESE are the kinds of advertisements you're going to be facing in November:http://www.facebook.com/cuentame?v=app_10531514314
It's going to happen, and it's going to lose you votes.
The first step to accepting you have a problem, of course, it the admission that you have a problem. You have a problem, and no amount of bullshit about "exceptions" is going to going to change that.
You're making a mistake. It's making everything shit for everyone, and it's going to lose you votes.
