I can no longer deny it. Anyone who’s read about the evolution of National Socialism in Germany in a biography of Winston Churchill obviously has a far better grasp of left politics than I could ever hope to achieve for myself. My own knowledge pales before the illuminating light of your expansive wisdom.
Henceforth, since you have shown yourself to be correct, I wholeheartedly embrace Hitler and Mussolini as my blood brethren and shall march forward, fist raised high, for National Socialism (one and the same with Socialism) and fight to put the Aryan race back in its place in the sun and vow to mercilessly crush the international Jew conspiracy in the name of the working class.
You pompous prick. May some denizen of the Ozarks mistake your copy of the Bible for a Sears-Roebuck catalog and use it accordingly.
Take a deep breath, count to ten, give us a link and then go back to war.
link link link linkity link.
Oh and Olentzero, glad you’ve finally had the wool pulled from your eyes. Me? I got into socialism because I’m a pompous elitist who doesn’t think the working class can think for themselves, that and I hate Jews, Arabs, and environmentalists.
Oh yeah. Scylla’s a twit.
My favorite moment was when debating what George Bush said about atheists should not be citizens, he bent over backwards making half-assed excuses, and then started e-mailing everyone to make sure that a well-documented story was not made up by the reporter in question, even though Bush’s own people said he sticks by it.
They invented the :rolleyes: smilie for people like him…

I love the title, man! My first pit thread, cool.
I’m glad to see you admit you were wrong, though I think you’re going a little overboard.
If you expect to cut it as a “Revolutionary,” and overthrow the Government, you’re going to have to stop being such a crybaby.
BTW. I don’t know where you get the idea I’m a Fundie. Though Bible thumping seems like a good idea at the moment. Sounds like you could use a smack to the head.
Yeah, not my finest moment. Still waiting to see what Lefevre said. Might as well see it through.
I’ve always liked you though we don’t always agree. I’m kinda surprised at that. “Twit.”
Shit. That hurts my feelings.
hey Scylla, I enjoy being contrary and I like you too. Of course, I tend to like all sorts of people I really shouldn’t. You were really fucking off base in that thread though. So off base I couldn’t even respond. I mean dude. I thought I was having a period of light psychosis.
Say what you like about Scylla, but the man can take a punch.
From the self-declared commie bastard, it’s pretty tame…
I think I’m like Scylla in that I actually get off on people bashing me in the Pit…
Thanks for the kind thought. I like you, too. Especially if you can mention it in the middle of a psychotic episode directed at me.
Seeing as you’re making that kind of effort I feel bad about pissing you off.
In that spirit, if you decide to explain here, or post to that thread, I’ll make a sincere effort to understand.
I will, in a bit. I’m pretty busy tonight. You know, trying to throw the election to Bush and all that. But, I will. regardless of what others say, I do feel you genuinely try to understand all sides of arguments.
Scylla: I’m sure you are aware that “twit” is probably the least offensive thing I could possibly in good conscience call someone in The Pit… I have done worse. So… Don’t take it so hard…
*TIME ELAPSED SINCE I QUIT SMOKING:
Six months, four weeks, one day, 16 minutes and 9 seconds.
8480 cigarettes not smoked, saving $1,060.06.
Extra time with Drain Bead: 4 weeks, 1 day, 10 hours, 40 minutes.
David B used me as a cite!*
Yeah, that’s what I thought at first, but then I realized the real depth of the insult was in the understatement.
It’s just so disdainful. A casual dismiss, like I’m not even worth the fucking effort of a decent insult.
Coming from you that’s the real insult.
I deserved better.
Scylla, you motherfucking cocksucker!!!
Thanks, I needed that.
This is a lot of fun! Thanks for starting this thread.
Kin I sit in your chair now?
Say what yinz want about Scylla, but I think he’s one groovy rat bastard. He’s not afraid to take extreme points, and to stand up to arguments against them. Most if not all of his posts are at the very least well-worded and entertaining, and he’s made the subject of groundhog killing one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.
Stick around, man, you’re an asset.
Something about a creationism thread comes to mind, the impression I got from one of your arguments. I guess a better impression would be someone who just argues a point for the sake of arguing it, whether he believes it or not. Types like that give me a headache real quick. I find it much more productive and pleasurable to take a fat, greasy shit than keep up arguments with people like you.
Ooh, you called me a crybaby and threatened to smack me upside the head. Now I’m really hurt. That’s OK, I guess it evens things out. I think you’re a pompous prick, you think I’m a crybaby. I can live with that.
You mentioned in GD that you took umbrage at my accusations of ignorance. Truth does tend to hurt, doesn’t it? Especially when you’re ignorant. Ignorant and spineless. Ignorant, spineless and boorish.
Oh, did I mention ignorant?
Let me add I’m very surprised that in Whammo’s thread here, you haven’t added your head to the list. Then again, the subject does say “on a whim” and not “on a frighteningly regular, if not permanent, basis”.
Maybe if you’d read the thread you’re bitching about, you’d notice that it was Polycarp who posted the comment about The Last Lion. Not to jump to Scylla’s defense–I both agree and disagree with him from time to time–but before you try to insult someone’s knowledge base, hadn’t you ought to make sure that yours is correct?
BTW, I read the thread in question, and it seems to me as an objective reader that Scylla was providing cites and facts and you were providing personal experience. If you want to make the argument, you need to have the backing, because on the internet very few people have any ethos.
