this piece from riffing off one of his alex jones appearance does a great job calling billy out on his coded language and hoops jumping

Quote:
The bizarre thing about your argument is you are celebrating the KKK members in Skokie (who were explicitly trying to build up American racism) with tolerance while excoriating "Black LIves Matter" protesters for engaging in legal and protected protests (which were explicitly designed to dismantle racism). That is some perverse shit, Brother Corgan.

Of course, you are also making a gross an inaccurate parallel between a hypothetical KKK member spitting in a Black face and a Black Lives protester arguing with a liberal candidate or reporter. Arguing is not spitting, and the content of the argument being engaged in matters here.

The KKK thinks they are right, but are wrong and put many people's lives at risk. The Black Lives Matters protesters are right, and may not always use tactics you approve of, but are trying to make the world a better (and more just) place.

Your analogy was poorly conceived and your argument was poor. And, at the very least, you should extend at least as much "Tolerance" to Black Lives Matters as you seem willing to extend to the frickin' Klan.

And last but not least, speaking almost entirely in coded language doesn't really help you here. As concerned as I am sure you are for "liberal reporters" and "Bernie," it comes across as pretty disingenuous and sketchy.

Thanks for sharing. That's a very level-headed article and critique

Do us a favor and stop pretending you wouldn't tongue anyone's asshole for a page hit. Your site is garbage. You got us a good D'arcy interview. Your work here is done.

Those damned dictionaries and their straightforward definitions of the English language. It's always much better when people change the meanings of words to fit their own view of the world, then pass it off as universally accepted

What can I do? That's how we start a discussion with someone who thinks Billy is "racist" for disliking SJWs. The bar was set too low.

It's also ironic how full of SJWs a place like Netphoria is.

I remember listening to an early 90s interview where Corgan spoke out against Rush Limbaugh. Now he’s pals with Jones.

Crazy. I tend to think he’s completely insane now.

I doubt that Mr. Buchanan has a chance after his interview with D'arcy to ever taste Billy Corgan.
Who claims himself to have a memory like an elephant and won't forget that he gave her the opportunity to speak out publicly about her indignation how Billy had treated her.

There's a lot of copy & paste nowadays from social media and between music sites. I wouldn't condamn it in general.

And you should only speak for yourself, not in the name of all...

Alex Jones would be a lot cooler if he were broadcasting out of a closet or some ramshackle homemade studio.

Billy seems like he the kind of guy who went months without speaking to D’Arcy because she passed him mustard instead of ketchup at lunch.

Here he is on Alex Jones saying he is no fan of Rush (limbaugh) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8ky...tu.be&t=22m40s

I'm telling you. Alex wasn't always alt right and Billy is not

That is a Pre-Trump era discussion and it is low key and very interesting. If you ever listen to it you can see Billy trying to keep the discussion on track and deflecting Alex when he gets worked up. It's not a bad conversation at all

smoking sounds amazing but it's cold as hell outside...I have a unique method involving broiling...and Buffalo sauce is key. I'm a health hypochondriac though so I balance taste and health

what's the term for unironically using the term "sjw" in the first place? ...hmmm.... oh right, idiotic, the other word with i and -ic.

it also really is ironic how many minorities are posting on a place like netphoria, isn't it? ha.ha!
