    srfRantz was acting like a jackass.

    He jumped onto someone's else's facebook page and asked the same question "over and over" even though the states he already knew the answer to the question.

    Further, that pompous 3 paragraph screed, heaped on top of the belligerent attitude, has ZERO chance of bringing someone over from the dark side. So what was the purpose?

    He's not too "pointy headed to communicate", he's not trying to communicate at all.

      but you make several incorrect assumptions.

      the post showed up in my feed because a friend posted it. so I replied to him.

      I asked the question of him once and got the rank attitude from the jerk completely out of the blue. so I asked why he wouldn't answer and why he was so angry with me for simply asking. got more of the evasion. and the hate.
      then I became intrigued and it became a test of wills. as I explain in another post below. but we only went a couple rounds and I gave up. on him. that's it.

      I never intended to bring anyone over from the dark side. and throughout, told them I didn't want to question their beliefs nor would I try to convey mine to them. They made it clear they didn't want to communicate and were threatened by it. I said only that I wanted to hear what they had to say and what they believed, to which I received the continued hostility. Am I a jackass? if you say so.

      until the 'nice' guy answered and then asked me for my answer and I gave the 'pompous' reply.

      at which point he gave his answers and the thread ended.

      no man is completely worthless, he can always be used as a bad example.

      is a social media - if you put something out there, you cannot only expect fawning admiration. The diarist did very well and kept composure and class.

      RWNJs should be countered at any junction if they bring up their ignorant talking points. I did so at a holiday gathering a couple of days ago and have no regrets for embarrassing the hell out of the guy in public.

      •  I do it when people make the mistake (0+ / 0-)

        Of copying me on a mass email that is easy to verify as false. I hit "reply to all." (Most senders don't use BCC when spewing lies) Then I say, ohhh so sweetly, "Wow, that is horrible! I was appalled when I read this. Fortunately it's not true!" And then I include the Snopes link, which usually takes all of five minutes to find.

        I hope they're embarrassed. But whether they are or not, it often results in RWNJs removing me from their list of "People I Can Forward Bullshit To."  Of course, it's a little tougher now that the RW has gone after Snopes. Cuz we all know those Snopes people just love Obama, and therefore cannot be trusted.

      •  I haven't gotten to do that since MI:2 was in the (0+ / 0-)

        cinema. I publicly humiliated the acting mayor asking what guarantees we were being offered that after an amalgamation of two councils the outlying regions that had formed the second council would be treated suitably instead of being ignored outside rate hikes to fund town works (he was still deputy mayor till the last elections I believe [like most worthless conservative politicians we just couldn't get rid of him and the mayor]). He dodged my question for 5 whole minutes while I tried to pin him down and get him to actually discuss what their plans were for where we lived. The news footage later on showed him going from white to beetroot (while repeating the same worthless talking point I'd been trying to pin him down on in the first place) a fact I'd missed in real life, and I was still a high school student at the time.
        Though we managed to dodge the amalgamation temporarily back then it got forced onto us in the end, and everyone suffers as a result.
