After he a string of posts completely dishonestly representing a claim that Brett Kavanaugh has told many, many, clear and obvious lies under oath, he puts this cherry on top of that shit pile in an attempt to claim the moral high ground.

I don't think it's worth it to engage with him. He's just too dishonest to have any sort of reasonable discussion with.

He just received a warning from the Moderator.

Remember that election bet I had with him, where he was supposed to donate $140 to the ACLU? He claims he did so, but I never received any email confirmation.

So either he is lying or the intern opening the envelopes at the ACLU office screwed up. The chance of it being the second is large enough that I won't accuse him of anything. If I had to guess, though...

Did you say ACLU, or American Civil Liberties Union?

Given the way that he likes to "misunderstand" others, I wouldn't put it past him to have "misunderstood" the nature of the bet, and instead, gave the $140 to A Close Living Uncle.

It’s ironic that he works in a field that pretty much any college grad with a 2.7 GPA could get, and yet I’m certain that he feels like he’s a fucking genius who has made himself indispensable to the modern world, and therefore justified to tell people that they should be as smart as him.

He's a piece of shit asshole. Czarcasm should have put him on ignore from the start of that thread.

Here's what the disingenuous idiot had to say about the admonishment to take such insulting language to the Pit:

Restricting himself only to the Pit. As though that was directed. Fuck that guy.

The comment from HD to Czarcasm does certainly come under the board rules of 'Don't be a jerk'. I surprised that didn't get him a warning. It certainly should have.

Is this Ducati with a changed name?

In Ditka's defense, he did admit he doesn't bother to read... or even click on... citations provided him, even if he is going to challenge you on the contents of those citations.

That's nice, I guess, right?

I was very amused by his claim that he has the best interests of children in mind when he opposes abortion even though he supports taking away their access to health care and putting them in internment camps. I wonder if he believes his own lies.

Ditka got his wish. He kept whining to the Mods every time I held a mirror to his idiocies. So he now has the privilege of being on my very select Ignore list. Nobody with a smidgen of intelligence is on that select list but I'd kept Ditka around because his posts are filled with such stupidity and such obvious hypocrisy that, like the canary in the coal mine, I found them a good indicator of the rabbit-hole down which the stupidest American voters are following.

I hope y'all will do me a favor on post each week's stupidest Dose of Ditka in this thread so I can appreciate it. Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh are amusing but they know they're just making big bucks by duping hateful imbeciles. It is eye-opening to see ó but just once a week please ó the ravings of one of the hateful imbeciles.

He's just following the standard dogma of the rest of his kind, which is to profess to care deeply about children right up to the moment of birth. After that, as soon as the umbilical cord is cut, "personal responsibility" kicks in, and if the infant is a good Republican, he'll get out there and get a job to earn his keep. Neonatal care and baby formula ain't free. They're also against public education for the same reason; the place for children is at the factories and steel mills, not publicly-paid liberal indoctrination camps where they teach socialistic sharing of toys, environmentalism, and even evolution.

I've concluded that the question of whether Hurricane Ditka is a shameless hypocrite or just incredibly stupid is a false dichotomy; in actual fact, he is both.

I can't believe how fucking openly racist he is in this thread about a Utah county where the whites want to separate from the Native Americans after the N.A.s took control of the county seat, especially page three, linked here:

https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...=870513&page=3

And, what's so frustrating is that he's from Utah, so if he wasn't such a flaming racist asshole douchebag, he could actually add some local color. I was actually hoping to see some of that, but instead he starts by shitting on liberals and then going full apartheid.

And, for all that is holy, can we please stop engaging with WillFarnaby? The guy is a lunatic with an outlook that even libertarians would say is crazy. Just let him spout his bizarre anti-government bullshit (on this government sponsored and developed internet) and ignore him. What's the point of derailing the thread so we can talk about individual houses seceding from the country. Jesus, enough already.

When a thread gets overtaken by HD and WF, I stop looking. They come into a thread, take a big dump, and then it's permanently derailed. Fucking morons, the both of them.

I rather enjoy arguing with them, in the same way I enjoy eating a McDonald's hamburger every now and then despite the fact that they are completely gross.

ETA: although I do think it is possible that WillFarnaby could snap one of these days. That is kind of scary.

Since I'm subscribed to this thread, I saw your post before you deleted it, and agreed wholeheartedly. So, I was surprised that it was gone by the time I got home and planned on adding a thumbs up or whatever. I thought yours was good, from what I remember, although I guess mine is more Pit-like with all the cursing and ranting.

Ravenman, I can sort-of see arguing with HD, although I've stopped engaging with him since he's so disingenuous when he argues (doesn't address the point, nitpicks irrelevant details, Gish-gallops all over the place), but arguing with WF seems like a real waste of time. His baseline assumptions about how the world works are so bizarre that it's like arguing in two different mutually-unintelligible languages. I really wish people just wouldn't engage with him when it comes to economics, taxation, government roles, etc. I'm sure he's just fine in the Game Room.

Actually, that's where he's his worst self. He openly advocates for all twenty-two players on a football field to overthrow the racist Democrat socialist power structure, declare they are all playing their own game in the spirit of secession, and that Abraham Lincoln is to blame for chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
