    @R2-DK nobody's gonna watch your 20 minute conservative youtube about why FOX r00lz and journalism scholars dr00l. maybe give us the gist in your own words?

    he's trying to raise 2 billion to build the damn thing

    @VadersLaMent: he said he's gonna build it in texas and claims he looked at 3 locations already and has talked to two state governors about it (didnt say what states)

    He should build it next to "Ark Encounter." Williamstown, Kentucky: a downscale Orlando. Even better than Dollywood.

    I meant how much he would siphon off the project for himself but wow, can even his insane followers (including the rich ones) come up with that?

    I've been over that study with people on other forums, and it's actually a little more complicated than that if you do some more disaggregation of it. Putting it that way is true, sort of, but also rather misleading.

    Anyhow, must dash, so more when I get back.

    I was going to say: was that the Bibleland Disney they talked of building years ago? The one with the "full scale" Noah's ark and the creationism land and all that weird stuff.

    Johnny Carson: Weird weird stuff.

    narutikawahtever to the rescue. note that even he, a libertarian and a grad student --therefore evidently endowed with both an appetite for the nonsensical AND the tedious--didnt care to watch 20 minute conservative youtube tho, r2dkforce. but maybe he can pull your bacon out the fire with unskewed polls disaggregated analysis he got off the brietbart forums

    I'm not a libertarian. This may be a new concept for you, but I make up my own mind on issues. When I find that libertarians have a valid point, I make common cause with them on it, as I do with liberals and conservatives as well.

    That may be too subtle for you though. It seems that in your worldview, there are two types of people: those who agree with you, and inbred, knuckle-dragging, low-IQ, drooling rednecks who talk like Honey Boo Boo's mom, spend evenings loading their shotguns for when Jeebus comes back, and only stop watching Fox News long enough to find some gays to drag around behind their pickup trucks.

    I'm not a paid research assistant. I do this for fun. If you can't just tell me what your point is, then I can't be arsed to watch a YouTube video the length of a Clone Wars episode to try to pick out the 30 seconds that might be the ones you think are important. Sorry.

    Nope. I didn't even know he had forums, and anyhow, after he doctored a videotape to make it look like Shirley Sherrod said something she actually hadn't, I put Breitbart on the ship list of news sources I will neither look at nor believe anything I hear from. I don't take my news from known liars, and more than I take it from professional comedians.

    Also, I don't think I've ever seen more than ten minutes put together of Fox News in my whole life. I've heard it's pretty awful, and I don't doubt it a bit.

    First, all the scores from that study are dismal - arguing about those shades of dismal is kind of like the last ten people to cross the finish line in a marathon arguing about who had the best time. You know what? It doesn't matter - the bottom line is you all suck.

    Second, as I recall, the study disaggregates into conservatives who watch conservative outlets, conservatives who watch liberal outlets, liberals who watch liberal outlets, and liberals who watch conservative outlets. The lowest score - the one which dragged Fox's numbers down the most - being among liberals who only watch Fox News. Well, duh. How dumb do you have to be to be a liberal who willingly sits and watches Fox News all day?

    Since the beginning of time, the answer to that question has always been "no."

    "you can't like label me, man. i just take, like the best ideas from everybody!"

    *is enormously reactionary*

    hahaha. chris hitchens observed this peculiar american phenomenon where the most reactionary, proto-fascist among us try to reject ideology altogether. to hide from it by claiming to be technocratic, centrist, in pursuit of THE BEST SOLUTIONS. probably because, either consciously or subconsciously, they realize exactly what they are and how they'll be perceived by others so they try to head that revelation off at the pass by declaring themselves to be "not playing".

    one thing i will say about the american true Left, even with things as bad as they are for us, ive never seen a Leftist try to hide in this way

    i edited out the long soliloquy about yourself because it was depressing

    totes respect your decision here. i tried to watch the youtube in question and my eyes glazed over in like 30 seconds. flies walkin on em and ****. very unpleasant

    cable news in the united states is by and large reactionary and useless and FOX is the worst of a bad bunch. i wont argue with that. glad to see you have no substantive objections

    i dunno dawg. probably takes about the same thing as making it through graduate school in the humanities and still retaining an angst-ridden teenager's view of ideology? (kidding yourself)

    @Blithe in terms of categories of socialists, i identify as nothing more specific than marxist-leninist currently but im deffo still evolving. in addition to being a marxist, i am a pro-feminist and an anti-racist, and i reject the idea that "identity politics" are incompatible with class struggle - i consider them important fronts in the same battle against oppressive hierarchies in human society. this is to say, i reject the unfortunately fairly common marxist idea that proper socialist revolution will automatically end gender, racial, and other forms of discrimination - these battles are equally deserving of attention

    i am a member of a political party that i find im pretty satisfied with the platform and praxis of at the current time - the Party for Socialism and Liberation

    on my worst, most depressed, ****-everything days im a non-practicing maoist-third worldist :p

    See, now I want this Becktopia to happen and will be disappointed when it inevitably fizzles. :(
