West Virginia's dumbest lawyer, defender of women: Biden, Wife-Beating and "Rule of Thumb"

Joe Biden repeats a debunked myth about domestic violence, which is dumb, to underline a larger point about domestic violence. Dumbass finds it outrageous and dangerous to suggest that women of the past had it worse with respect to domestic violence. Dangerous.

This is the same dumbass who defended, "Grab 'em by the pussy," because, "and they let you do it," tacked on at the end despite several women coming forward and saying that they did not let him do it.

This is the same moron who said that even if Dr. Ford's claims about Kavanaugh were true, that kind of thing was called, "Trying to get laid," back in the '80s.

What an absolutely disgusting trash bag.

He probably got it from Warren Farrell, disgusting father of the MRA movement, who claimed, "Before we called it date rape, it was "having a good time."

There's a ton of underlying MRA bullshit in his posts.

Absolutely disgusting.

He knows what he's doing. He'll keep baiting posters to rack up warnings until he finally flies too close to the sun and gets banned/martyred.

Sexual violence, or maybe sexual"violence," is perfectly fine, but domestic violence? Heavens no! No one does that! Not in 300 years!

"To be Super Dave"? No can do anyway, since he dead.

Wish I had seen that this thread had been revived. It might've saved me a warn..nah, I'd have still insulted him anyway. He begs for it.

Whenever we poke fun of West Virginia, as we are gently doing in the "Stupid Republican idea...." thread today, it always reminds me anew what a moron UV is.

I still can't believe this guy is a lawyer. His arguments are always so terrible. Here he is in the latest abortion thread (yay! Another abortion thread! This time, the other side will be convinced.):

https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...&postcount=124

He seems to argue that, if abortion is legal but fetuses are considered persons then the conclusion must be that all humans were originally unwanted, or something ridiculous like that.

thorny locust immediately blows holes in UV's argument, of course. Can you imagine being a judge or juror when he comes in with these ridiculous arguments and strawmen? I wonder how many eye injuries there have been from all the eye rolling.

And, as an aside, Velocity is no brainiac either. Not just from that thread, but from many of his threads. I'd pit him, but I'm bad at starting pit threads.

I understand that a reasonable response would be how bad would the panic be if the President got the virus and died, but I think that is where the line in the sand is drawn. Someone has to show leadership (and it doesn't matter whether anyone thinks it is poor leadership) and the President must be that person, even at the risk to his own health.
Hey, check out this fucking dumb ass.

Self-quarantine is not about the risk to your own health, it's about the risk you pose to other people, you fucking nit wit.

And, hey, Justin Trudeau is in quarantine right now, and he's prime minister of Canada. Unlike Trump, he's leading by example.

It's not so much the things he doesn't understand, it's the effort he puts into not understand those things that guarantees that he will remain, until his last breath, West Virginia's dumbest lawyer.

Them? You're assuming a lot. It's West Virginia: wife and daughter may be the same person.

I think that is the idea anyways. Haven't thought about it enough to have an opinion on it.
And yet he gives an opinion.

I had no idea this thread was for UltraVires. I figured he's too idiotic to waste opening a new thread on, so I'll just add this here:

UltraVires isn't just an idiotic parrot of stupid ideas, he also is either too cowardly or too dense to defend the shit he spews.

Scratch that, let me try again.

... he is BOTH too cowardly AND too stupid to defend the stupidity he spews.

In this thread, this thread, and now in this thread, he simply stops posting when he's asked questions or his points get refuted. I'm sure once could have been accident, twice maybe he's forgetful, but now it certainly seems like anytime his feet are held to the fire, he simply runs away.

TLDR: He's not just an idiot, he's a coward and an idiot.

Oh yeah. That's a recurring pattern.

He posts some dumb ass shit. A bunch of people take the time to show that he is unquestionably factually wrong. He slinks away without a word. And then...

He posts that same dumb ass shit in a different thread three months later.

Yeah. I couldn't even respond. How do you respond to somebody who clearly does not want to understand the situation?

In a thread about a company that plans on taking it's employees' stimulus checks, WVDL proves he has an evil side.

Also completely ignores that the company is planning to take half of the dependents' checks as well.
