Why are you even bothering to engage in discourse? Just censor him.

Ratboy is accusing Styx of the same thing he's doing. Not surprised. Video refuted.

i've only seen 3 of his videos, one is below of a lady walking up to him and trying to debate him while he's canvasing in georgia.

and the other was a tim pool debate, the average tim pool debate where tim gets used as a rag

Low information and/or poorly educated people often regard those who are informed and well educated as "dumb" because they don't have the context or background to understand their points. Intelligence doesn't really enter into it, which is interesting.

The fact that this was your response adds to my point. Hey man, if you want to let uppercase sal9000 use your account that's on you, and I'm sorry but uppercase sal9000 has posted some of the most dimwitted shit I've seen in relation to analyzing Pool, what he does, how he works, and the reality of his limitations, which he acknowledges. Other comments indicate the absense of the capacity to think critically, a preference for received opinions, and just general disrespect.

 

And what do you do? Sit back and imply, leave empty spaces for the ideologically possessed to fill in with their simple answers, and make light of it all like I'm overreacting. What did they do to you, or to your loved one? The ones who called themselves Christians? I have enough information to know you have enough rage about it to be motivated to strawman and burn Christianity over and over. You know no matter how many times you do that, it won't quench the fire that feeds your rage. My greatest rage is reserved for the kinds of people who wore the skinsuit of a Christian and did whatever they did to make folks like you obsess over a  schadenfreude that can never be quenched.

do you have issues with intelligence? learning, problem solving, reasoning, understanding, pattern recognition? you're not a doctor, do you think doctors are dumb? you asked a mechanic for a quote not to long ago. do you think mechanics are dumb? intelligence is underlying, if you got a low intelligence, you're probably going to stay in the low information and/or pooly educated pool

"what do i do?"

"seriously. the look on her face was one of those "this isn't how this is suppose to go"

you should check out scott adams video today. he talks about how to him, shooting a lady in a group is actually a de-escalation technique. shooting a man is normal. but shooting a lady makes everyone around re-evaluate life" 24 hours later: "Scott "i'd shoot a girl in a crowd" Adams"

i'm not smarter than any of you. i'm worse than any of you. i'm willing to spend more time making sure you're wrong than you guys do making sure you're right.

"i'm willing to spend more time making sure you're wrong" That's true. You have put in a lot of work for no results.

 

See, The difference between you and me is what I believe is clear, sound, and straight line logic.

 

Your logic changes depending on how cornered you are.

 

Freedom at ANY price. Amended with "Do as thou wilt, do not oppress others" Is air tight, and the only counter to authortarianism and all of it's creativity that comes with it.

"love it when you quote me, i can jerk off to it."

 

This is what a person who is 90% less confident than they present themselves says as they become cornered. You don't watch the content you target and criticize it based on the application of anything resembling your own critical thought faculties. If you do watch the content, which is very rare, you don't trust yourself to evaluate it. 

 

You almost always avoid the content, and in every case I've seen seek third-party sources who will label and characterize the content creator and the content in a way that supports your tribal concerns; you present that, and claim you've done research. You don't deny it, and what I'm coming to grips with is that you may be not be capable of anything more. And as arrogant as your little speech there seems, there's one phrase in particular that suggests this is your way of admitting you're not capable of anything more, and maybe you see our continuous encouragement for you to do better as a kind of bullying. Like asking a paraplegic to get the fuck up and do the foxtrot. 

 

If so, my apologies.

Ich habe dieses Video nicht bewertet, weil ich dieses Video nicht gesehen habe. Ich bin kein großer Styx-Fan - ich lehne nur sinnlose Zensur ab und spreche mich dagegen aus.
