Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 05, 2019

Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said her spiritual and principle-based campaign is meant to re-bond a country torn apart by President Donald Trump and an amoral economy. Williamson took on the "entrenched" political establishment and said principles which are inscribed in marble and on documents have been left to die in the American people themselves.

She also took aim at liberals, criticizing The New Yorker's David Remnick for characterizing her as a "crystal gazing kook" and an anti-vaxxer, both of which she denied.

"I know this sounds naive. I didn't think the Left was so mean," she said about her experience running for president has been. "I didn't think the Left lied like this. I thought the Right did that. I thought we were better." The next day, a shocked Williamson had to defend herself from an "overly secularized Left" attacking her for discussing prayer and the right of people of faith to belong in the Democratic Party.

Marianne Williamson has now apparently gotten a healthy dose of reality about what the modern day Left looks like, and as the rest of us all know, it's not pretty.

Except mine has nothing to do with butthurt and everything to do with the constant dishonesty and lack of integrity by significant numbers of posters here.

I've stated that quite clearly on multiple occasions.

perpetual disgust over "constant dishonesty and lack of integrity" IS butthurt.

so, you should stop lecturing anybody about it.

it's the cause for anybody who personally attacks folks on a regular basis on here....on either side.

That's not true at all. Unless of course you restrict the meaning of "country at large" to mean only them and others like them. Then you're 100% accurate. It's perfectly consistent with their Dear Leader's notion that l'tat est moi.

Not sad in a crying way, sad in a "shake your head at how absurd it is" way. Why is that? Do you actually think their posts have that substance you're knocking me for lacking?

Lately I have noticed that their turd flinging is mostly prompted by you poopbombing a thread immediately after one of their posts.

If you disagree with their posts, knock them down with facts or ignore them...its not that hard.

You act as if the "knockdown with facts" wasn't tried.

They're not interested in facts or an honest discussion. So scratch that off your list.

As for ignoring them, try plonking goat, sheeple and nulli. See what the threads read like for just one day. Try it. Seriously.

I plonked Snoofy, Corky, and Zed a couple of years ago right after the election when they were at their worst so I know how a thread can be disjointed. On the plus side, the threads were much shorter.

Once they calmed down the plonks came off and I now just ignore most of their inanity when it arises.

I don't care about disjointed.

The threads become largely unreadable as 25-50% of it is now gone and another 25-45% of it is clearly addressing the holes.

It's basically made it quite clear that there are a few posters who seem to always be in the center of 90% of derailed threads but are the ones pointing fingers at everybody else. And most of this is entirely on the shoulders of a particularly prolific troll who for some ungodly reason was allowed to emerge from under his bridge recently.

Now you are just trying to bait him, which makes it worse and you just as much of a turd flinger.

That's all he has is turds to fling.

Look through his posting history and find the exchange about universities he had with Lamplighter. Lamp is one of the easiest posters to converse with and probably one of the best posters here and all he did was sneer at him when he asked for a link then pointed out a glaring inconsistency in Nulli's posts.
