Can somebody here please explain why this election has more sore losers than any since I've been alive (and I ain't exactly young)?

It seems this election was won by a very silent majority.

I don't think "sore losers" best describes people who would commit suicide or murder over the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama. They are gullible low information voters who swallowed hook line and sinker all the hysterical nonsense put out by the RW propaganda network.

For someone to kill him or herself they have to be genuinely emotionally distressed. The poor fools really believe that a 2nd term by this Democratic president means that "their country" is truly lost, perhaps irrevocably. The socialists, atheists, muslims, brown people, and moochers have taken over. America has been destroyed.

That's what Fox News, AM talk radio, Teaparty politicians, and the One Percenters who finance them have done to millions of ordinary Americans -- filled their heads with lies and false narratives built up over decades in order to influence the outcome of elections and thereby exert control over government to serve their own narrow financial interests.

The fact they lost despite all that is somewhat encouraging. Mitt Romney and others at the top are indeed sore losers, but I feel more pity than contempt for the ordinary folks driven to despair by the RW propaganda machine.

Not representative but ask yourself the question, are the the nuts & extreme idiots more
likley to be drawn to the Republican party and its corresponding right-wing media complex or
the Democratic Party its much smaller media complex(despite the tiresome "liberal media"
narrative from the right)? I think the answer to that is pretty obvious,

So if the nuts and extreme idiots are more likely to be drawn to the Republican party and
its corresponding right-wing media complex what does that say about the Republican party
and its corresponding media complex?

Ya if you're stupid and have been exposed to this right-wing entertainment complex don't
be surprised if you come under the influece of that right-wing entertainment complex compared
to if you're not stupid and haven't been exposed to this right-wing entertainment complex

Let me guess you're one of the stupid who has been subject to the right-wing entertainment
complex and therefore was very insulted by my post because he a little to close to home?

The bottom line is how can anyone look at this last 3-5 years and not come to the conclusion
that the Republican party caters to the lowest common denominator? Even former Bush speech
writer David Frum realizes this.

Oh and your post count relative to your joined date probably tells me you've been posting on
this forum before under different handles and are just too embarrassed to use those previous
handles.

" but since your throwing mud"

yep. I was right. You took the OP as a personal insult. Obviously I was describing you
wasn't I?

As for active duty. Didn't it bother you that countless right-wingers like Cheney not only
didn't serve but had something like 5 deferments to avoid any combat all the while being
extremely hawkish throughout his entire life(never a war he didn't like sending others
to fight)?  I bet not. You probably only pull that kind of rhetoric on those who don't
fit the Republican profile

I bet you never cared if someone like Cheney didn't serve despite his 5  deferments while
being a war hawk

BTW, I don't your word on either your denial of not using another handle or your assertion
of being in active duty as if that would be a reason for such a low post count over the
course of 3 years.  I've had too many discussions with too many dishonest right-wingers on
this forum and others for me to take what they say about themselves on faith.

Military service is to be honored, but the experience does not make one more knowlegable about domestic politics & policies, or even world affairs for that matter.

Any debate rests on the merits of the argument and the relevant facts. Unfortunately in American politics there is no agreed upon set of facts, and the media is seldom an effective or unbiased arbiter of truth.

And no, I did not serve in the military. The draft ended 2 years before I graduated high school, and I thought our involvement in Vietnam was a horrible, tragic blunder. Ditto Iraq & Afghanistan.

Welcome Tacksman.

You have probably figured out the MO of this very left-leaning forum, but here is quick summary:

1) DTM digs up some article that illustrates the failure of a conservative  policy and/or celebrates the misfortune of a conservative supporter
2) Other posters chime in and join the chorus
3) A conservative poster posts a different opinion or interpretation of the events
4) Conservative's poster's credibility is attacked
5) "Sore loser" argument invoked
6) Rinse. Repeat

I have not paid much attention to these forums until the past 6 months or so.

It has been a bit of an eye opener. There is a LOT of pent up anger and frustration at the conservative movement and what has transpired over the past 12 years (perhaps longer).

I do not blame people for being angry and disappointed, but these forums have been exceptional in their ugliness and misanthropy.

Life goes on.

So you're getting self-righteous again so with in mind that reminder again

http://forums.backpacker.com/cgi-bin....foolish

with posts like the above I don't think you're in a position to be self-righteous

As for Tacksman, you probably missed his "Your "more likely to be drawn.." is ignorance or a
rant."(the first direct personal shot of the thread) followed by its hypocritical, ironic and
mud slinging 'Your "more likely to be drawn.." is ignorance or a rant."

Surprise surprise you just happen to miss that or conveniently ignore that.

Also you haven't posted in this forum as much as others so you're probably unaware of the fact
that every so often (actually probably more than every so often) we get these unknown posters that
pop out of no where with relatively low post counts and either a very new joined date or joined dates
several years old. These posters just pop out of nowhere and more often than not lean to the right
then after a # of posts disappear for good.

To give you one example there was a poster named humbirddr who was later outed by the forum moderater
as Par845 and then tossed from the forum by the moderator for really over the top behavior

See posts 43 & 44 here
http://forums.backpacker.com/cgi-bin....1;st=30

That is just one example among many examples on this forum(although only the 2nd example that I'm aware
of where the forum moderator actually outed the person as the same person using another handle and then
kicking the person of for their antics)

I'm not comparing Tacksman to humbirddr/Par845(or any other of its other possible handles yet) but to
make  the point there is pattern of right-winger posters(I think it may only be one or two) who refuse
to stick  to one handle and decide to take their pop shots using different handles then abandon all
together after  doing their dirty work and it did occur to me that Tacksman relatively low post count
combined with a joined  date in 2009 combined with his first post in this thread which took a shot at
me, did fit the characteristic  of this kind of poster.

Oh and BTW while this forum leans to the left(not sure I would describe it as "very left-leaning") there have
been times when this forum leaned to the right for long periods of time(like in 2008).

Oh and compared to many political forums(probably most) the quality of posts are quite a bit higher
quality. If you doubt just take a look at craigslist's political forums or the message boards to yahoo
articles.

and there was no digging up on my part

That implies some effort to find those two news items

There was no effort

The point is this kind of unhinged behavior has been so common(in varying degrees) on the right for sometime.
You don't have to dig to find those examples

Amazing, absolutely amazing.  The article is completely silent on the political affiliation and what political propaganda motivated this clearly very sick individual.   Yet true to form, DTM jumps to all sorts of partisan conclusions.

As for your question: "the nuts & extreme idiots" are "more
likley to be drawn" to both the D and the R parties.  That's one reason why I'm an Independent.

And as for your follow up question of "what it says":  I think the OP says a LOT about the exceedingly narrow, stilted, irrationally partisan view of its author.  None of it good.

Yeah because these are the actions of a lifelong hard charging Democratic Party member. The Obama love just oozes off the page...... 'F--- Obama!' being a soulful cry of longing?

"Florida man who warned he wouldn't 'be around' if Barack Obama was reelected kills himself after the election
Tanning salon owner Henry Hamilton died of an apparent self-inflicted drug overdose two days after the election, and wrote 'F--- Obama!' in his will.
Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/news....n8E77bC

Or not. Reads like the OT's "Obama hater" rather straightforwardly.

"A Florida man who warned that he might harm himself if Barack Obama won the presidency was found dead two days after the election of an apparent self-inflicted drug overdose.
Henry Hamilton, 64, was discovered dead in his home on Nov. 8 alongside two empty bottles of prescription drugs and a living will on which he'd written "Do not revive! F--- Obama!""

They are the actions of a very sick individual.  

To tie a political significance to the sickness of this individual is in my opinion stoopid and ignorant, and yet par for the course for some people on this forum.

To tie a specific political party to the sickness is in my opinion irrationally partisan, and yet equally par for the course for some people on this forum.

Not representative but ask yourself the question, are the the nuts & extreme idiots more
likley to be drawn to the Republican party and its corresponding right-wing media complex or
the Democratic Party its much smaller media complex(despite the tiresome "liberal media"
narrative from the right)? I think the answer to that is pretty obvious,

So if the nuts and extreme idiots are more likely to be drawn to the Republican party and
its corresponding right-wing media complex what does that say about the Republican party
and its corresponding media complex?

Amazing, absolutely amazing.  The article is completely silent on the political affiliation and what political propaganda motivated this clearly very sick individual.   Yet true to form, DTM jumps to all sorts of partisan conclusions.

As for your question: "the nuts & extreme idiots" are "more
likley to be drawn" to both the D and the R parties.  That's one reason why I'm an Independent.

And as for your follow up question of "what it says":  I think the OP says a LOT about the exceedingly narrow, stilted, irrationally partisan view of its author.  None of it good.

Well I tell you what isn't amazing but rather predictable is that Kenv thinks that the in
order to come to obvious conclusion about something that you need to pull out an exact quote
from the article that reiterates the conclusion.

Really? So for example I would need to find a quote in an article that says the GOP has
catered to the lowest common denominator and the unhinged for the conclusion that the
GOP caters to the lowest common denominator and the unhinged to be true?

All the reams of unhinged examples from the GOP isn't evidence?

WTF does Kenv think I meant by "So what is the pattern in all of these examples?"?

Who would doubt that the GOP caters to the lowest common denominator and the unhinged other
than someone who is very ignorant and/or sympathetic to the GOP?

Oh and Kenv can claim he is independent all he wants. Anyone buy it?

Only a partisan like Kenv who denies he is a partisan and calls himself an independent would
think that it takes partisan to point to point out the obvious state of the right-wing,
the Republican party and the tea party movement

oh and your characterization here
"
DTM digs up some article that illustrates the failure of a conservative  policy and/or celebrates the misfortune of a conservative supporter"

Especially the "celebrates the misfortune of a conservative supporter"

That is a total BS characterization on your part

Really?  I disagree.  Hungry Jack's "characterization" seems like a reasonably accurate description of the countless irrationally partisan threads you have started on this forum.

Hungry Man didn't even characterize my "posts" but this particular post and he didn't
characterize this post as " irrationally partisan" but 'illustrates the failure of a
"conservative  policy and/or celebrates the misfortune of a conservative supporter'

So if Kenv can't even read a simple sentence and be able to comprehend it then why the
hell should anyone think he is able to judge what is an irrational partisan thread which in
itself is full of irony

Now if Kenv wants to give some examples of some irrational partisan threads from me then
lets see if you can do that with a logical intelligent explanation.

Yeah because these are the actions of most every lifelong hard charging Democratic Party member.

Obviously not.

And NEITHER are they "the actions of most every lifelong hard charging Republican Party member."

They are the actions of a very sick individual.  

To tie a political significance to the sickness of this individual is in my opinion stoopid and ignorant, and yet par for the course for some people on this forum.

To tie a specific political party to the sickness is in my opinion irrationally partisan, and yet equally par for the course for some people on this forum.

What is stupid and ignorant is to deny the current state of the right-wing and Republican
party which has dumbed down its rhetoric to such an extent and used such extreme rhetoric
that surprise when we see examples of this kind of insanity and stupidity and surprise surprise
in the vast majority of examples they tend to be from Republicans or on the right/libertarian
in general.

We have even seen people former Bush speech writer David Frum mention this in so many words.

To deny and therefore imply that all this unhinged behavior is just as likely to happen
from the left and Democrats as it is from the right and Republicans is to reveal your own
ignorance and stupidity

This didn't used to be this way but within the last 20 years and especially the last 3-5 it
sure has moved in that direction

^^ mind boggling ignorant statement


Does anyone think looking at the news last 3-5 years that  "nuts & extreme idiots" are more
likely to be drawn to "both the D and the R parties"

When you see unhinged behavior related to politics is it really true that unhinged behavior
is equally divided between Democrats and Republicans and the left and right?

Ya right.

How ignorant do you have to be to believe that?

I am SO sorry Dennis.

I did not mean to interrupt the mastubatory demonization of opposing views here that qualifies among a very select few as enlightened discourse. Please carry on.

And thank you for debunking the destructive views of impostors with their signature low post counts. Funny how these interlopers are only those with opposing views. But the sheeple must be protected from lies and propaganda spread via the Internet.

Thus, it is heartening to know that your online sources provide an accessible stream of fact and opinion to inform us of the failings of views not consistent with your own. You have amassed quite a portal of hate, refreshed on a daily basis, to help us attain full understanding of why opposing views are the sole province of losers, haters, idiots, brain-washed right-wing neo-Nazis, murderers, rapists, and other assorted scum.

And I apologize that my ill-advised demonization of Obama has caused such a kurfluffle within your venomous circle jerk. How dare I accuse a politician of playing politics? I should have stuck to the formula and branded half the political spectrum as depraved idiots.
