I honestly don't care if they're getting paid or not... 99% of them are so easy to spot it's laughable. Always look at their history, if it's mostly Russian conflict stories then *ping* They'll refer to NATO or Ukraine as fascist *ping* They LOVE to use a basic western first name and claim to be American. Ironically when they're pretending to be American they're typically support a conservative stance politically.

I was told a story of a technical draftsman, who specialized in farm equipment for a very well known company. He literally placed a scrotum (where's Waldo style) in all his technical drawings. The guy was so good that instead of reprimanding him or some other such punishment, they actually assigned a person to find and remove the scrotum from each drawing before sending them out.

Because in my experience, that sort of lazy ad hominem is most frequently practiced by people on the left of the political spectrum. The reflexive Fox! Fox! Fox! is a classic example.

...and yet "lazy left" isn't a frequently practiced ad hominem in your world? In other words "lazy left" == "Fox! Fox! Fox!"

Racist rants should be universally held up for shame, but the media - especially the proudly left-leaning outlets - are absolutely duplicitous on that subject.

Are you honestly trying to tell me that if a group of blacks was chanting overtly racist remarks they wouldn't be called on it by whites? but then I suppose things like "black lives matter" is probably racist chanting in your world.

"If you start allowing for instances of "acceptable racism", you're not a serious person who wants to see it removed from society." You mean like white officers being frequently overly violent against blacks. That kind of "acceptable racism"... the pendulum swings two ways.

How is anyone supposed to take you seriously when you use terms like "lazy left" I certainly don't. But as for your argument. it might be more socially accepted for blacks to spout racist nonsense, but I'm willing to bargain that they are subject to more racism than whites are on a daily basis. Would you agree..? Yes or No. or are you just going to chant "lazy left" again.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
