Default Don't be pointing out the obvious to SPFreaks

Questioned Billy's interest/support in Marrianne Williamson (from recent OG posts) while he has passively supported Trump and his ideology the past few years and got immediately banned from their FB page before they acted like that was a crazy idea. If you're a Billy devotee, do you just ignore the Alex Jones interviews? Can't say I'm surprised, but Good Lord, and the Left are snowflakes? Just keep living in your privilege bubble of rare, expensive collectables, hoss.

Williamson seems like a well-meaning lady, a Boomer-turned-hippy, who supports a lot of cool policies like reparations, universal health care, etc., and who also believes disease is a fake concept and is an anti-vaxxer

If she follows this Course in Miracles book to the letter then she also believes all of time and space are not real and we are all one collective being who has turned against God, and I believe this may be a unique conception of reality among the major Democratic contenders this time around

His politics, chemtrails and shapeshifter shit is just “playing the heel”.

I think he worked out some time ago that the best way of getting attention is by talking in soundbites and having dumb/controversial opinions that can be turned into clickbait headlines.

Unfortunately for him we live in a post trump, post Brexit world and are all dumb so nothing he says is particularly novel.

nah he's turned into a garbage person. when it becomes too obvious, he falls back on the excuse of "playing the heel."

You know he's been on Alex Jones, right

We have discussed his political views at great length up and down this forum over and over, and no, we're not making it up

the guy enjoys talking politics and he has strong (sometimes dubious) opinions, but that doesn't make him a partisan?

i mean, saying "he's two tweets away" from something kinda implies he's actively tweeting about something-something...

topleybird is the only one on the level here.

The "obvious" is that he's actively participated in (what I'm sure he'd consider) the intellectual justification for a disrupter like Trump. The cop-out is that he never acknowledges the collateral shrapnel that comes with supporting this dude. It's like he and Alex Jones believe he's a harbinger but are incapable because of their position to acknowledge the divisive ripping of the social fabric he's wrought.

Interestingly, there is some intersection topleybird is onto with the Williamson candidacy and what he found worth exploring in Trump.

Have you ever watched it tho? They basically talk about freedom of speech. Billy always says he doesn't vote for anyone. He considers himself a libertarian.

To draw an overblown analogy, if Billy chose to sit down with Hitler and they had a pleasant discussion about their favorite Dickens novels, I would feel the same

It's his choice of interviewer, of his choice to participate in a hateful, fearmongering, insane show, that I object to
