I had a huge crush on a Mormon girl in high school and considered “converting” to get her to date me (but never sank that low).

...Then again if I see two young men in my neighborhood with black slacks, white shirts and ties and backpacks, and riding bicycles, I’m turning off the TV and lights and pretending to not be home.
I'm laughing at your last sentence. We were trapped this weekend when working in the yard.

I have plenty of friends that are Mormon. Same is true of evangelical christians. I still dislike both religions (well, mostly all religions) for different reasons. Just like I have conservative friends and family but I hate the Republican party.

Don't forget the time he mocked an old man's failed suicide attempt because that old man was a anti-Trump.

So, apparently, if someone has ever said anything bad at all about another white person, they cannot be a white supremacist.

Awesome! Now I don't have to worry about becoming a white supremacist. That's one more load off of my mind!

It's a head scratcher there to tell if he's defending the shooter against allegations of white supremacy, or white supremacists from allegations that they did this.

And isn't wonderful that we can't tell. It's the breaking news thread and he can't stop arguing about this bullshit.

Hell, back in '62 or '63 the segregationists in Mississippi killed a white guy who lived not that far from me for the sin of working for voting rights. Guess the KKK was really not made up of white supremacists.

Well you have desensitized everyone to claims of racism and now resort to claiming “white supremacy” is a significant force in American society. You have gone as far as claiming upwards of 40% of the voting public are white supremacists. When a legitimate white supremacist kills some people, the people you smeared as white supremacists for being anti-minimum wage or something may feel the need to defend their mislabeled form of white supremacy. For they have been labeled by academia and the media as white supremacists, and they don’t want to be associated with cold-blooded murderers.

Similarly you will find all types of modern commies claiming actual commies like Mao and Stalin weren’t commies.

Somebody is mislabelled as a white supremacist, and their reaction is therefore to defend actual white supremacists in order to defend themselves? And to be proactive about it and jump in and defend faux white supremacists wherever possible.

That is fucking insane.

Haven't you heard? Conservatives don't do the commie thing anymore. They like it when commie energy companies give them lobbying fees and interfere in elections on behalf of Republicans.

Oddly enough, a lot of people are saying Melania Trump isn't a Communist though she was raised as one until the age of 22.

But there wouldn't be any more online trainwrecks. SDMB trolls are my soap opera.

I can't yell at Trump, so I'll settle for his worshipers.

Different shooting. Different thread about it. Same question from me, about the typical response from that asshole to the event.

It's kind of puzzling to me. As extreme and hyperbolic as you are wrt the Trump so-called administration and it's consequences, you remain quite naively passive about its enablers.

I didn't say he was my favorite poster, but there are more annoying and trollish posters than HD. I don't read all of his posts either, so maybe I'm missing something. In any event, I think I made it clear that I didn't particularly care for his latest contribution on the El Paso thread (or latest at that time). Not sure what's naive and passive about that.

This is about Ditka. I feel like we should keep that in mind, and remind Bone of it as often as is necessary.

I suspect that most any group is mostly made up of decent people (except Illinois Nazis), particularly if you interact with them on an individual level. Base on six decades of interacting with people, most of whom aren't assholes.

After being notified that he was on troll watch, he deleted his last post and ran away from the thread. And after trolling extensively in the Matt Shea thread, also buggered off after being thoroughly trounced by facts -- though he might be back to either thread if he can think of another threadshit that he judges to be non-warnable. Just in case anyone had the slightest doubt that this fucker was nothing but a sealioning troll.

Many of them are nice. I come from sixth generation pioneer stock, but there are plenty of these kinds of assholes there.

Mormons love to compliment each pother on how wonderful they are, and they often put on a show in public.
