    When you disagree with somebody, immediately accuse them of spouting "GOP talking points". In the absence of any real argument, This will shut your interlocutor up long enough for the rest of the community to pile on, effectively squashing the hurtful speech of people who might convince others they make sense.

    I'm so sick and tired of hearing this bullshit "GOP talking points" comment. This is the left wing equivalent of the reductio ad hitlerum that the right practices. Either present facts to back up your assertions or STFU, for fuck's sake.

    I'm downvoting every post like this from bere forward. I invite you to join me.

      Having to wait 5 extra minutes to purchase a tool of death is hardly an assault on freedom.  It's common sense.

        There can never be areas of agreement between the two sides... it's HERESY! We all know the way to stomp out heresy and apostasy is to nip it in the bud! Entertaining and discusing such points might cause people to question the party line. This sort of speech must be terminated with extreme prejudice immediately.

        Right?

            Anybody with ideas that might overlap in any way with the right wing automatically becomes a "talking point" right? Anybody who might agree with those ideas must simply be a right wing troll on DK, and must be shouted down with ineffective arguments and logical fallacy.
