  •  You hope you scared the shit out of someone? (0+ / 0-)

    Because you don't like the bumper sticker they had on their car? You stalked someone at high speed, because you don't like their politics, and you hope that you scared the shit out of them?

    Dude -- I'm not perfect. In fact, I do seek counseling for my issues. I'm just saying that if you're hoping you scared the shit out of someone -- that you've tried to intimidate someone because of their political expression -- then you're the one behaving like a fascist. Also, you're scaring the shit out of me, because I wouldn't want to express a political idea that you might disagree with. Congratulations.

    •  Yes, I hope I did scare them. (0+ / 0-)

      It's the only REAL thing they'll have been scared of in at least the last eight years. All the rest of their fears are just vapor and fantasy.

      Get off your high horse.

        Did you proofread your comment first, for unintentional irony?

        Pot, meet kettle. Call him whatever you like.

        •  Whatever. (0+ / 0-)

          You're on a high horse - and why? Because you can't bear to believe that someone would actually be angry with people who believe stupid, unfounded, unfactual shit?

          For your information, I took the same exit as them and maintained the speed limit, which in that area was probably 40 MPH. I did not do a "high-speed chase." I just followed them for a little while. I didn't tailgate. I just followed them for a few streets before I went elsewhere.

          And yes, I am angry enough with them that I hope it made them at least uncomfortable, and I would love it if it made them scared. Expressing stupid, unfounded, unfactual, bigoted, racist opinions? They should get some fallout for that. They should be nervous saying shit like that about the President of the United States.

          Free speech is not a license to say whatever you like without consequences. I hope someone keyed their car, too. I hope they get nasty notes left on their windshield. They asked for it.

          If you can't see that, I can't help you. But I think you have a real problem with anyone getting angry, even when it's justified, so I'm glad you're in therapy since that's something YOU need to work on.
