In case you guys missed it, Aeschines lived in Japan for EIGHT YEARS! That apparently entitles him to spout any amount of barely diguised racist (oh wait, it’s not racist- he just hates Islam) bullshit he wants, and then say either
A: I lived in Japan for EIGHT YEARS!!!111oneOMG
B: You are just brainwashed by the PC police
Whenever he is called on it. Aeschines lives in a bizarre world where “debate” means “saying whatever wierd stuff comes to his head” and then resorting to such time-worn debate tactics as “my daddy is the vice president of his company, so I know what I’m talking about” and “your just a big wrong doodyhead.” His debate style goes beyond fallacious and in to a strange dark realm where logic falls apart at the hands of his malformed childish ego.
His quote-by-quote rebuttles (which he makes second after every post- doesn’t he have a job or something?) can be kind of funny, if they didn’t inspire quite so much nasea. He can reply to ten different quotes in one post, and never actually engange the argument. I’m really baffled as to what sort of joy he gets out of this. It’s like the time I went to New York and a barber said he’d give me a free haircut and ended up shaving my head- he’s got to be getting off on this somewhow. I’ve never met someone who can so so little in so much. Maybe thats just what eight years in Japan does for you.
Although he refers to himself as part of “we the left” (ack! who invited him here!) his real beliefs are somewhat, errrr, strange. He thinks that Japan was better of with feudalism (and I guess he should know, as he was there for eight years), for example. He’s like some kind of freaky Bush-Bashing Pro-Life Ultra-Darwinian Ayn Rand who believes in ghosts.
Now for your enjoyment, I’ll include a diverse selection of Aeschines quotes, from which we can glean his immense personal knowledge of subjects ranging from what life was like in the 1950s to the nature of the afterlife. If only we spent eight years in Japan, we too could be worthy to join in these conversations.

I have no idea who or what you’re on about here, so I have no actual opinion on anything you’ve said, but the above caught my eye. Thanks for posting it - I hadn’t seen it before and now I will have the giggles all night as I try to puzzle it out.
I don’t agree with some of what Aeschines posts, but I really don’t see what’s so kooky or pitworthy about these replies of his that you’re pulling up. Seriously – I was reading your list of examples and kept waiting for the point. Am I missing something? Is this your way of dealing with boredom? Do you have a secret crush on him?
