I was just posting an opinion after reading the article and that's how I actually feel about her hawkishness. If you're going to write it off as trolling, then that's because she's a sacred cow to some people in this thread. Most here would call Bush's foreign policy doctrine under his Presidency to be absolutely insane, so I'm not sure what's different here given her rush to send in troops at any opportunity.

Nobody has any problem with blunt opinions about Trump in this thread, so it's strange that Clinton is off limits.

US Presidential Election XII

It pretty much sounds like you're saying that, if enough people don't like your opinion, you are aware of this, and you share your opinion anyway, you are now trolling.

That's pretty pathetic, quite frankly. It would be trivially easy to find examples of both Trump and Sanders being called much worse than bonkers.

That said, Diemen does a good job of staying mostly objective 90/100 times.

Calling a poster the village idiot is not trolling.

I think BMP has some of the worst political opinions in this thread (I don't not enjoy your posts, though, BMP - no ill will). That said, the vitriol the board has decided he warrants is pretty indefensible.

Things like this are why the board has about three conservatives and maybe two Sanders supporters.

Tbh I think this board uses the term "vitriol" way too much.

No, Clinton is not off limits. Pfan posted that article and, last I checked, no one has called for its deletion. However, that article was full of substantive points to be made, and I'm pretty sure that's what Peef was hoping to initiate. And instead we get "boy is she crazy, amirite?" from the resident Hillary basher.

I'm just saying, if you want to have a discussion about Hillary's issues, then by all means, go ahead. There are several posters here who would welcome it. But "she's even more bonkers than I ever could have imagined" is not a good jumping off point.

So that one got by me, but upon some more searching you might notice I've talked to Dave about these kind of posts before.

if being called "the village idiot" is too much "vitriol" for someone to take, the internet is probably the last place they should be.

So, pay-to-play 100% did happen and Clinton obviously lied about releasing all of her work related e-mails (and unsurprisingly, it's the batch related to Clinton Fund donors that only gets released now). Bono tried getting help for the ISS link-up on the last tour....

Emails reveal how foundation donors got access to Clinton and her close aides at State Dept.

Yeah, but we'd like it if this place was better than the rest of the internet, which is why it's not cool to call another poster the village idiot here.

Donald Trump Jacked Up His Campaign’s Trump Tower Rent Once Somebody Else Was Paying It

He's truly in it for America!

sorry but when we have someone come in here and start literally and repeatedly calling other posters "pro-rape" as a debating tactic, my concern for hurting their feelings with mean words like "idiot" kinda goes out the window.

So next time you lose your concern, don't post the result.
