Great Debates has jumped the shark.
I can remember a time when we actually used to discuss whether Great Debates was biased to the left, and there were good arguments for and against that proposition.
This is no longer true. Great debates is now as radical a message board as you’re likely to find. It is WAY, WAY over on the fringe left.
As of this moment, these threads are on the first page of GD:
Did America Deserve 9/11?
“Screw the Planet! I’m an American!”
Guantanamo, Holocaust Parallels
Bush Campaign Running Most Hostile Campaign in History? Why?
Is the Official 911 Story a Conspiracy Theory?
President Bush Wants to Become a Dictator?
IMPEACHMENT EMERGENCY: Jan 20 '05 Will Be Too Late…
Are Barbara & Jenna Bush “Fair Game” If They Join Daddy’s Re-Election Team?
Timing of New Terror Warnings
Those are just the most lurid titles, and doesn’t cover all the more innocuous threads that have devolved into anti-Bush rants.
Sorry folks, but on a board dedicated to ‘fighting ignorance’, I hope for better than constant conspiracy theories and lame parallels between Guantanamo bay and the Holocaust.
