Weapons Grade Stupidity

RailGunner (554645) writes | about 5 months ago

User Journal 14

Recently, an Anonymous Coward (but I have a couple of guesses as to who really wrote it) accused me of being racist because I am pro-life.

The AC's argument was: You say you want to ban abortion, but what you really want is to ban abortion except for the type that rich white people can afford, therefore, you're a racist.Recently, an Anonymous Coward (but I have a couple of guesses as to who really wrote it) accused me of being racist because I am pro-life.

The AC's argument was: You say you want to ban abortion, but what you really want is to ban abortion except for the type that rich white people can afford, therefore, you're a racist.

The logical leaps in this argument are almost breathtaking in their stupidity. I'd be surprised, but I've had this account for probably a decade now and as such liberal stupidity is, quite frankly, nothing new.

Here's some pseudocode that explains my position on abortion:

bool MayHaveAnAbortion (Mother m)
{
if (m.LifeAtRisk() == true)
{
return true;
}
else
return false;
}

Please note, dear liberals, that in this example there is no consideration for race, socio-economic status, or any other victim groups that you like to place people in.

(Yes, I am aware that the method could simply be "return m.IsLifeAtRisk()" but let's face it, the liberals around here aren't smart enough to handle that and would only get confused.)

So to sum up: Yes, I am absolutely opposed to all forms of abortion for all women except in cases where the life of the mother is at risk.

Furthermore, the logical errors required to somehow twist that into calling me a racist are exceptional in their stupidity, and proves (yet again) the intellectual dishonesty of the "progressive" movement -- showing the "progressive" movement to be nothing more than a secular humanistic death cult.

Pretty good (1)

Marxist Hacker 42 (638312) | about 5 months ago | (#46595133)

But I'd go one step further, and a bit more complex:

enum result { CarryToTerm, EmergencyCSection, Abortion }

result MayHaveAnAbortion (Mother m)
{
if (m.LifeAtRisk() && b.LifeAtRisk())
{
select case Triage(
case b.Viable: return EmergencyCSection; break;
case m.Viable && !b.Viable: return Abortion; break;
)
}
else
return CarrytoTerm;
}

I'm too tired to debug my boolean logic in that, but basically, I want to add another process where we triage mother and child to decide which one, if either, can be saved. And sometimes, that does mean an abortion, but sometimes it means delivering the child.

Completely agree.

I'm going to be pudge for a day (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about 5 months ago | (#46595357)

You say I vote democrat, therefore you are a liar! That being the case, I will have to assume you are lying here also. You entire spiel about abortion is based on the fear of the changing demographics. As your majority, privileged status slowly drifts away, you want to change the rules to put off the inevitable. You are fooling nobody.

Once again sir, keep your nose out of womens' business. It is none of yours. The mother shall decide what's right, not you, the church, the government, certainly not her damn employer, not anybody.

You are not pro-life. If that were so, you would also be pro-living, unconditionally. No one who is pro-death penalty can possibly be "pro-life". That is oxymoronic. Speaking of which... nah, I'll let that one go :-)

Have a nice day, and Peace!

I was giving you the benefit of the doubt, thinking you might at least be marginally smarter than the average Ralph Nader / Green Party supporter. Clearly I overestimated your intelligence.

So I'll ask the question (again): Who did you vote for in the last 4 Presidential Elections? (Assuming, of course, you were old enough to vote in the last four.)

Once again sir, keep your nose out of womens' business.

What about the tiny woman who has yet to be born, growing in her mother's womb? Isn't anyone going to speak for her?

No one who is pro-death penalty can possibly be "pro-life".

Are you kidding?

There is a difference between 'innocent' and 'convicted of murder and at least one other violent felony' -- which is Texas's criteria in seeking the death penalty. That said -- I'm not a strong supporter of the death penalty. (Catholic, remember?)

Anyone who argues that it is ok to kill people because it's convenient to do so and they can't defend themselves against it... misdirection is going to be the go-to strategy, right?

I don't feel strongly enough about the issue to do anything about it, because the world is full of evil. But pretending some sort of righteousness because you are for killing babies is ludicrous.

That is exactly what the death penalty is, a matter of convenience and plain old cold blooded revenge. It is premeditated murder of the worse degree. And regardless how you feel about abortion, it is none of your business. The mother and her doctor are the only ones who should have any say. All of you should learn to butt out.

No, you're just trolling, which is perfectly fine. I enjoy it.

Who did you vote for in the last 4 Presidential Elections?

Nope, na-ga-da... Wouldn't be prudent. Your mind is set in stone, and you're not believing anything I tell you anyway, so there's no point in talking about me. You already claim to know everything. So you go ahead and spin. It keeps things interesting. You only need to know that I see democrats and republicans as a single tag team, taking turns in the ring. Voting for either is absurd. I do however place odds, and try to parlay that into a small profit, but since the results are fixed, the payoff just isn't there, unless there's an upset, which is extremely rare. Usually it's just a boat race.

Isn't anyone going to speak for her?

The mother. Her voice is the only one that matters. Once again, butt out!

There is a difference between 'innocent' and 'convicted of murder and at least one other violent felony'...

Too many wrongful convictions... If you support the death penalty at all, then you support the death penalty. Religion is irrelevant. Besides, I grew up Catholic also. But since religion is a choice, I choose not to follow.

You entire spiel about abortion is based on the fear of the changing demographics.

I don't understand the 'fear' argument, except as a projection from a twisted soul. We're all children of the Almighty from conception on, irrespective of race & gender.
The cheerful butchery of the unborn is a falsehood that hardens hearts and enables much other evil through its basic rejection of truth.

No one who is pro-death penalty can possibly be "pro-life". That is oxymoronic.

I'd cheerfully forego any death penalty. The difference from abortion being, of course, that the human life never gets due process. But it may be the case that you're more interested in supporting evil than due process; I don't know.
While I veer off the Social Conservative track at federal levels, I can't see how you support the 14th Amendment if you think that the unborn are slaves in the little plantation of the mother's womb, and liquidating a slave is somehow moral. But I'm sure you can supply some mental gymnastics to get around the obvious truth that you were you when the genetic information defining you was complete, i.e. conception. No?

The only thing that matters is what the mother has to say. You have no right to meddle. It is not your business.

Ah yes Kennedy. Sending out the CIA to turn Mandela over to the authorities.

Evil does much better when so-called "good" men do the wrong thing. Even you gripe when you consider the cure worse than the disease. Leave the mother alone... Besides, are you boycotting Chinese goods? If not you are supporting forced abortions and infanticide. Once again your concern looks very selective.

I do whenever possible, it's hard though when China has become the only manufacturer in the world due to having a bunch of eugenically selected young men and no ladies to distract them.

I have good news and bad news (1)

Bill Dog (726542) | about 5 months ago | (#46600387)

The good news is that after January 2017 we won't have to listen to Left call everyone opposing them racist anymore. The bad news is that for those following 8 years they'll be calling every dissident a sexist.

(And then in 2024 we'll elect America's first openly gay president, upon which the go-to epithet will change again.)

Re:I have good news and bad news (1)

fustakrakich (1673220) | about 5 months ago | (#46605741)

And and we won't have to listen to you people constantly deny that is you(editorial) who have been playing the race card all along. The man is a typical politician who follows orders, no different from any other, actually emulating one you all admire obsessively, yet you make this one out to be the devil incarnate. There can be only one reason for that... Okay, I'll allow there are two reasons.

Maybe somebody will relay this question to you: How's life in your little echo chamber there?
