- Reaction score
- Sioux Falls, SD
The second I see the word "pro-abortion" my brain goes "fuck off."Well put. I can't say I disagree with any of that.
But what I think @philkilla was referring to is that the vast majority of the posters here more or less align politically (anti-trump, pro-abortion, anti-gun, etc). It is not easy posting a dissenting opinion on this board. I know I have been personally insulted. I didn't get insulted for insulting somebody (which I never have), but for stating my opinion. I know I am 2 inches away from getting banned, just for dissenting to some things said here. Either though control or through creating a toxicity for those who disagree, you foster an environment where those who disagree leave and all you have left is like-minded individuals. That is the echo chamber.
Nobody's pro-abortion. Nobody. That's the type of right-wing virtue signaling bullshit that makes you think everybody in here is a member of the echo chamber, because in all honesty, it's impossible to see those words and not have a guttural reaction to it. It's patently false wording designed *SPECIFICALLY* to get a reaction, so you can whine and cry about how unfair people are treating your 'opinion' (that appears to be entirely gleaned from right-wing media).
As for the new bill being signed and the media companies throwing champagne parties over how great the Democrats are for saving the planet? No.
It will do fuck-all for 99.99% of us, and most of it will be gutted the second the Trumpers come storming back into office now that they've cleared out the riff-raff like Cheney for daring to not kiss his ass publicly every other second. As much as I don't care for Cheney policies, I at least respected that there seemed to be a brain stem and spine involved in them. It's depressing to watch the party I least agree with toss out one of the few members I can at least nod at as a human being.
I guess they needed to make more room for the fist pumping morons and the twitter spazzes.
