    wow if all you wackos think any news site is worthy of being listened too, then go ahead and live in your fantasy world. NBC, CNN, FOX, CBS, etc all report lies. Look at the school shooting in Conn, in the first 2 hours of coverage they all lied just to be the first ones to open there mouths when they had no info and just made crap up.

    As it is Westboro is a hate group that no side claims and if you are saying they are left wing or right wing you are just defending your side, basically if you believe politics will save you then your side is basically looking at each other with a bowl of SiiiT. fill in the blanks morons.

    Wow, if you can motivate a conservative motorcycle club to form up and stop you. your in some really deep denial regarding your connection with reality. of course there is no proof that the bikers presence had anything to do with Westboros absence. This is just blatantly using the MC to make up a story.

    If you have a significant problem with how things are run on the forum, there is nothing to keep you here. Why stay on a site that apparently makes you miserable?
    It's okay to talk about politics but not in the "LOL FOX NEWS REPUBS SO DUMB" and "MSNBC? PURE DEM MORON" crap like this thread has. This thread has also already had religion bashing as well.

    I never said the site makes me miserable, I said I don't like 99% of the threads. There are probably like 30K+ threads, so.

    You're conflating "forcing them to like each other" with "forcing them to treat others with a basic level of respect". You know, one of the main things that MAKES a civilized society. You are also remaining neutral towards racists in this regard, by choosing not to show them the error of their ways. Which only increases racism, because you're letting it go unchecked/uncorrected.

    You might be able to argue that they aren't right wing, but there is no way possible you can say they aren't conservative.

    Sad that "conservative" and "right wing" are considered synonyms in America, but that's all the Republican Party's fault, isn't it?

    Again why do you read it if you don't care for it? You say 99% of the threads are bad but here you are reading them making yourself mad. Get over yourself, you aren't all high and mighty and better than everyone. Just leave the site if you don't like most of it. Would do us all a favor.

    No, it is the media's fault no one even knows what the terms right and left wing mean. Since the media incorrectly uses the terms all day long, every day.

    If the right wing doesn't like being conflated with conservatives it should stop courting them and promoting their agenda.

    You know, for the past 40 years or so.

    I wanted to take a look at what might have been a decent thread then I see a bunch of posts about how one side is pure evil and stupid. If you happened to be walking by someone you slightly knew saying ridiculous things that weren't true, whether or not you agree with their side, wouldn't you feel the need to disagree? But sure, make this about how I'm just so cocky and better than everyone as if I ever said that, lol. Again, just because I don't like most threads doesn't mean I'm going to leave, continue saying the same thing though, it's obviously going to work.

    There's quite a few similarities between Murdoch and the Westboro Baptist Church. The failure to recognize what interests the public isn't the same as public interest, and the general prurience combined with "public morality".

    For a thread pertaining politics and religion on a gaming website, this has been quite tame and fairly well-behaved. If it weren't, I'm sure it would have been closed by now. Continue to beseech the mods if you're so inclined, but if you're falling on deaf ears it's probably because no rules are being blatantly broken, so bemoaning the topic and ensuing comments to the commenters is rather redundant.
