I will concede maybe I play into the right-vs-left thing too much. And I do think of it as a sport.
It's amazing that you can't see how this part automatically makes everything else you say instantly into garbage. I'm supposing anything about you - like I said, everyone knows a couple of people like you, and it's your single-mindedness that makes you all the same.
Please believe me when I say you're a total douchebag, and even when you're admitting your sock-puppetry you still can't bring yourself to be completely honest.
Your major mental defect politically (if you're really even interested in what your problems are, but I doubt it) is that you look at it like a football game - ie your fake "raging liberal" vs. "hard-core right winger." You care not about the finer points of any issue; everything for you is framed in this black-and-white world, and basically, anyone who doesn't agree with you is a "raging liberal". It's very sad, and the millions who think like you, on both extremes, do a disservice to the vast majority of people who just wish you would all shut the fuck up and let politicians find some kind of middle ground - or, in cases like this, when both parties are at fault, you draw attention away from that fact and try to frame it as a right-vs-left thing. Either way, you're part of the problem, and you can't see it because of your blind "my side must win at all costs!" psychotic attitude.
Add in a healthy dose of passive-aggressive "oh YOU need to calm down, I'm totally rational!" and you've succeeded in completely deluding yourself about how the rest of the world views you. Trust me, we all know one or two people just like you. In real life, we realize quickly it will do no good to try to change your mind with rational discussion, so we just politely decline to talk politics with you and try to ignore the fact that you're a lunatic by having as little contact with you as is required.
It doesn't, but he wasn't "criticizing Democrats" in a vacuum - he framed it in a way that it was clear he was saying "Democrats are more authoritarian than Republicans." Which is bullshit, because they're both terrible at the moment.
Even worse, the same guy most likely posted this AC comment in a feeble attempt to make it seem like he's got support for his read-between-the-lines partisan dog-whistle message. Coward, indeed.
oh right, here's the classic backtrack - you slam "liberal Democrats" as "authoritarian", implying that the opposite of "liberal Democrats" wouldn't be so authoritarian, and then once someone calls you out, "oh I never said that, did I? that's all in YOUR head, you need to calm down!" After all, if you were caught taking a stand for the side you prefer, you've now backed yourself into a corner, and that's so inconvenient when you're trying to prove that you're right.
Don't be an infant. Everyone knows exactly what you meant, and if you really didn't mean that, try harder to not post as if you did.
