    "Libtards"

    Can someone explain this to me...it seems like every single right winger/moron says this term like its the single most clever thing they have ever heard....but i still dont get it how libtards translates into a diss onto liberals....there is no T liberal......so what exactly is the cleverness attaching a "tard" in there....wouldnt this be more of a diss for libertarians? Atleast it has a T in it.....

    What makes me laugh is that in the USA, liberal means someone AGAINST freedom, that is fucked up.

    It's a demeaning label that attempts to muddle a talking point or issue. It's the same when liberals call conseratives tea baggers, black democrats that call me a uncle tom, or the racist/sexist label.

    I'm always wary of persons who claim to be fighting for "freedom", more often than not it's their freedom they care about and not others.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    I usually think of step brothers scene where Brennen puts his balls on Dales drumset. So whenever the term comes up, I picture John Boehner and Ted Cruz rubbing their nutsacks on furniture in the white house.

    Liberals = pro social liberalism, somewhat anti economic liberalism
    Conservatives = anti social liberalism, pro economic liberalism ("neoliberalism")

    As a note (since it's relevant to the point of the thread):

    If anyone ever sees blatant political bashing like this (i.e. libtard, conservitard, whatever other things people come up with), please report it so mods can look at it and take care of it. This applies to any thread!

    We really don't like insults being tossed around and stuff.

    Many thanks.

    What I want is for both the liberals and conservatives to start using common sense. Certainly not enough of that being used these days.

    Doesn't work. Political parties are polar opposites because if one of them gives an inch, the other takes a mile. So being extreme on both ends is the only way nothing is ever going to change.

    Good to hear. In fact, I'll make it my signature for the next person that decides to call someone a 'tea bagger'.

    I'd hardly even call Democrats and Republicans polar opposites. Youve got center/right, and then you've got far, far right.

    It means liberal + retard. Difference is that a liberal would want to improve conditions in prisons, a libtard will improve the prison conditions during the time of great recession. One would see the consequences of his or her decision, while another will follow his or her ideology and damn the consequences.

    Boy, that's some close minded thinking right there.

    It's basically the Republicans' trap card once you defeat any false logic. Pretty much means you win.

    It's the same as calling someone stupid, crazy, psycho whatever. You use a title to project unrelated elements on an issue at hand and disposition the debate. Like we call someone crazy in our attempt to title and project on what we don't understand. It's easy to see when the same "crazy" person is written off by one and reached by another. Granted the crazy guy was painting his face in his enemies blood, but he use to bowl every Saturday just like me.

    Here's how much value those titles present. Abraham Lincoln was a republican when he signed the emancipation proclamation. Bushes guy worked to help free slaves.

    so delicious.
