That is such a dreadful argument! "The Republicans are doing a bad thing but I'm sure the Democrats are secretly doing the same."
I'm no great fan of the Democrats but in fact they haven't gotten anywhere down to the depths that the Republicans seem to be happy to plumb.
If you have evidence that the Democrats are doing the same thing, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, you're in the category of "simply making things up."
What would the Dem equivalent of the joker-Obama picture be? Giuliani in drag? Oh wait, been done.
First of all, who said being a socialist is evil?
If you think the image of a white-faced Obama is merely "mean" I' don't think we have anything to discuss.
And that the way they depict their fundraising is explicitly grossly insulting as shallow dupes that can be easily manipulated by preying on their fears or playing to their massive egos.
You're a Tea Partier.
Verb, though I appreciate your attempt to be neutral and balanced, I think there is something more to this than the imcompetence of the RNC.
To me the ppt seems to be clear that fear, not in any real context but just simply scaring the shit out of people is a major aim of their marketing strategy. Whether its racism or creeping socialism or whatever doesn't really matter as long as people are scared and not making decisions based rational premises.
No, if you believe things without any shred of evidence, then you're as stupid as those people with their Obama=Hitler posters. And in the same direction.
"Everyone does it" isn't sophisticated anti-naivete, it's lazy cynicism.
I'm saying that you are assuming things that are not in evidence. Sure, this can be looked at as business as usual...if you choose not to look at the attitude that's being displayed toward the RNC's victims.
To be fully fair and balanced we must pretend the existence of gun-totting racist Democratic mobs.
Or, it may have something to do with the fact that you rather vehemently deride folks' interest in this as "masturbatory OutrageFilter". But whatev.
Clue number one that you should shut up: The thread becomes about you.
