They really don't get it. With folk my age, that's inexperience - these kids assume they're "pre-rich" as Nigel (I think?) called them.
With older adults? I think it's willful.
Of course it is. You see what they do when you debate something they've said "LALALALALA NOT LISTENING!"
I think it's because they're scared to look. They can't live with the Horrible Truth(TM) so they just keep yelling to shut it out.
Oh yeah. They have no interest in listening to facts. None whatsoever.
Hell, I've done the same thing saying, I'm not a huge fan of Obama and here's why. It's a real, and legitimate reason to dislike the man.
"Yeah yeah! And he's also a Kenyan socialist!"
No dude, he's not. Yes he is, his policies are all socialist. No dude. They're not. I used to be a flat out Communist. I think I know what a Socialist is. Obama is not one of them. Yes, he is. Also, you're a Communist.
Obongo <---yeah that's not fucking racist at all
It goes on and on. Oh hey, you're a fucking racist.
No I'm not, you're the racist for playing the race card.
Then you've got white guilt.
Fucking hell, there's just so much stupid in these people it's maddening. You want to choke them for being so fucking stupid and dishonest with themselves.
