^^Who said I was on his side? That link posted was honestly the first thing by him that I had ever read. Perhaps that's why I think it is silly for the town council to use the adjectives they did to describe him.

Maybe you shouldnt get mad about someone being called a racist until you find out the person isn't a racist?

Like most politicians, members of the Durham City Council look for ways to distract people from their ongoing and obvious incompetence. An event like Jordan Peterson coming to town is the ultimate distraction because it fires up people of all political persuasions.

In an ideal world, we would expect a higher level of effort from elected officials. In reality, poorly thought out hot takes are much easier than doing real work to improve Durham as a city.

Have you ever noticed how 99% of the replies in this thread (and in TSB in general) lack substance and really just boil down to personal attacks? Try actually grappling with any of the points I make here. Worst case scenario, you get better at articulating your thoughts. If you're just here to throw around hate, then I don't know what to tell you other than to get a life.

I go to Durham all the time and it's fine, although I prefer Raleigh. It does (like Raleigh) have its problems that should be the primary focus of its political leaders. Jordan Peterson is not a meaningful problem to be dealing with or writing about.

In Raleigh, I don't think the city council would post an uninformed diatribe like Durham's city council - and make no mistake, it is uninformed. Here's a decent article from a lefty on the topic: https://www.thestranger.com/slog/2018/07/09/28930684/the-lefts-mischaracterizations-of-jordan-peterson-will-make-his-followers-turn-right

I've already heard the argument from JHC ("why should we handle the right with kid gloves") - I kindly request you actually read the content of the article instead of just the title so you can understand the point.

d357r0y3r's "substantive points" ITT over the last month:

Quote :
" was going to post some stuff, but then I remembered that you would reply and I would need to reply to that. Instead, I'm just going to pull the old leftist copout of "it's not my job to educate you" and leave it at that."


Quote :
"Whoa, you got me all wrong dog. I also said that white male liberals are the real racists too.
"


Quote :
"Sometimes I wonder if you people have been in your echo chamber for so long that some part of your brain has become dormant, unable to process and respond to simple statements."


Quote :
"The evidence is in, and libs are massive crybabies that can't deal with any sort of opposing viewpoints without literally having mental breakdowns."


Quote :
"I just see leftists as being weak. Constantly bowing, scraping, and apologizing for what they are. It's pathetic to watch and it's not something anyone with any dignity would want to emulate. It's not empathy, either, because they never want to actually help anyone improve their lives, they just want to pass around blame."


Quote :
"Yeah, but who decides what poverty even is? The capitalists maaaaaaaan... "


Quote :
"Intellectual leftism is the U.S. is really about white/Jewish men and women telling minorities that they are inherently incapable of succeeding and telling them why they need the government to save them. It's really just the next generation of "white savior"-ism wrapped up in "progressive" rhetoric. If there were any popular voices on the left really driving people to become better, more successful people, then maybe I could reconsider this belief, but everything I hear come out of the left is pure victimhood narrative crap which is just completely useless stuff."





You're just another conservative accusing those around you of the exact same behavior you exhibit on a regular basis. Stop projecting bro.

Your actual points lack substance and when anyone gives you a solid argument against them you deflect with shit like this:

I wonder if conservatives will ever realize that when they shout about how criticism makes them turn right or alt right or whatever, it's super insulting to conservatives

"oh no somebody picked on me let me change all my closely held beliefs now"

I think we all know why he prefers Raleigh to Durham. It's not the politicians. It's the people who inhabit the city. And how do we know this?

Ahem.....I wonder what the implication is here.


Destroyer seems like someone who genuinely believes he is the smartest person in the room because he read a bunch of books youtube comments

us politics makes sense as soon as you realize that the conservative platform is just anything that causes liberal tears

I talk shit when people talk shit to me. I'd rather it not get to that point, but there are...certain...posters here that really turn it into a toxic environment. If you guys just want to jerk each other off day after day about the latest fake outrage, why not just go to /r/politics or /r/fullcommunism? Your total jerking exposure is going to be much higher over there. As it stands, there's really no reason for me to be civil, but at least I've got some well thought out posts here and there.

I respect JesusHChrist in a way because he's at least willing to type something out. It may be something stupid, misguided, and coming from a place of emptiness and resentment, but at least it's there. Some of you are just lazy. You post one line responses like "lol" and "is this guy serious" - this is the dtownral style of posting. It would be very hard to argue that this provides any value at all - it's just filler content. If the posts stopped coming tomorrow, no one would notice or care.

Some of you I could have a conversation with if it weren't for the toxic elements constantly turning it back mudslinging. The Soap Box was a mistake, and all self-respecting TWWers should stick to boards with high-quality analysis and conversation, like Sports Talk.

Is fake outrage the same as fake news?

Do you honestly think there is nothing to be outraged about with this administration or the direction of the country? Do you honestly believe that there are no indicators of a society in serious disarray right now?

Because, honestly, if you think things are "mostly okay," then you are seriously highlighting how things are "mostly okay" for YOU. That is to say, a clearly racist presidency and administration that is tilting toward fascism and displaying hostility to communities of color and the working poor doesn't affect you. And if you think that those who are upset by these visible trends are only motivated by resentment rather than a sincere concern for their material conditions, then that says more about you than it does about them.


Let's be blunt: If you believe that the grievances of women, communities of color, the lgbt community, or the working poor are "fake outrage," then you are declaring that their problems are not as significant or worthy of redress as the issues of "straight white males." You are depriving them of their political agency, which means you do not view them as your equal (which, currently, you don't). This is an issue you need to come to grips with and confront.

You have two options:

1) Confront this issue of political imbalance and adjust your politics to encourage more equality
2) Shed your libertarian mask and openly endorse the fascist politics of white supremacy.

TBF, reading the hysterics on TSB over the past 2 years has been pretty entertaining.

Contrapoints is one of my favorite youtubers (insightful and hilarious) and she did a video on him a few months back.



Note that Contrapoints is a transsexual woman so that's probably gonna scare away some of the people who should watch this video, but she's not one of the hypersensitive lefitsts screaming autisticly at the camera that some people are likely picturing in their mind. She's actually pretty willing to engage people with opposing viewpoints and undestanding where they are coming from before making her argument why they are wrong.

Her most recent video is on incels and it's probably the best video I've ever seen about understanding these people become who they are while still not being tolerant of their hateful and harmful (both of themselves and others) views. https://youtu.be/fD2briZ6fB0
