ok so, even if the"Facts" the republicans believe may be wrong -don't get me wrong im not siding with anything here, im just making a point-
they are still trying to argue with "facts"


I don't know what you mean here.

Evolution is real, climate change is real, and pregnancy from rape isn't any less likely than pregnancy from consensual sex. These are indisputable facts. There is no arguing against them. So when Republicans try to argue against them, they're not using facts; they're simply making shit up.


you kinda missed the point
the point was that even if what they think is wrong they are still not basing their argument on feelings ya know?

Again, nothing to do with my post. Are you even trying?


It has everything to do with your post though. I wouldn't have made it if you hadn't posted what you did. So... yeah.

Evolution denial stems from religious beliefs (feelings).

They lie about how the female body works to justify opposing reproductive rights because they hate the idea of a woman choosing whether or not she gets pregnant or has children (feelings).

They deny climate change because of their connections to the fossil fuel industry. (Not sure what that qualifies as, but it's certainly not evidence based)

You mat notice it more because it comes from the opposing side. I share this bias too.

Pretty much this.

As human beings, we all think our own opinions are reasonable. We tend to notice the worst of the "opposition" (they're generally the loudest) and turn a blind eye to or disavow the unpleasant people on the same side of the debate as us because, "Hey, that person's a jerk, they're not with me, I'm perfectly reasonable."


This.

most of the time i think its partly how they are raised for example being taught that everything wrong in world is somehow tide right wing ideology when in truth the left can be just as bad. as well as getting so far left that even more moderate liberals or whatever are considered part of the evil right.as well as certain left wing ideologies such as the various Marxisms may look good in theory but really are just as bad one of right counter parts in fascism for example. plus i do think the education system has been corrupted to various extents with courses whose only purpose seems to be to get people to follow a ideology which is NOT what should be a part of school.also i think sometimes if they don't have a stable childhood they at least with some are unable to grow up mentally fully. then their are those just are like causing chaos and strife etc weather its someone attacking a harmless hobby like watching anime or playing games or more extreme example of groups like violent blm, kkk, etc. and many of these probably could be used for ether people many would say full into the left or right of the political spectrum.

I just want to say, thank you for putting those two together in the same group, people don't like to acknowledge that blm is the racist extreme for the left side

it's not like the right isn't the same.

both the left and the right in America are full of just as many idiots as eachother.

Or maybe they don't want to live in a country where the people are taxed for the carbon emissions from cow and deer farts. While 'green' companies get billions in government subsidies to build wind farm monstrosities where you get sub optimal power only when the wind blows. Never mind strip mining the earth to get the materials to build these turbines and panels (and using coal or oil to process them), only to replace them two years later.

Climate change alarmists are shills just as much as any other big corporate lobbyists, and they provide no real alternative to fossil fuels.

As PV said, I see a lot more conservatives/alt-right throwing insults than democrats. This is due to media consumed.

White knight, SJW, Feminazi etc. Do I agree with everything the left does? Na, still see a lot of insults thrown to the liberals. I would also argue that this thread was made for feeling validation, not facts.

Edit: To quote a conservative from Georgia with some new insults...

MORE INSULTS. YOUR SALT POWERS ME!

Edit 2: So far I have seen no liberals throwing insults. Only one side on this forum has hurled insults so far. I am curious to see how this trend continues. Will the liberals degrade into insults or will it remain civil?

Just wait until one user in particular gets in on this, at that point things will even out.

...And the Killer Memes will begin.

I really don't come to CR for educated debates to be fair lol. I just come here for nostalgia and disappointment. I remember old threads that were so fun, like the recent "Favorite Owl/Hawk" threads.

Crunchyroll is a circle jerk in which certain circles rub one out in an echo chamber. One echo chamber is larger than the other on CR atm. If I want to have a real debate on politics, I have a University debate club I can always go to. They tend to be of a higher caliber and less fake news sources. That and emotions are void. I remember in my technical writing class my professor said "Do not put religion or emotions into your paper. They are based on feelings, not undeniable facts." That made me so happy. Made people think outside the box.

Still angry about a debate with a flat earther there though. They also believe the Nazi's still live under Antarctica X)
