And the big difference between Fuzzy and TOC is that TOC takes the initiative to read a lot of conspiracy shit that reinforces his beliefs well enough that he can at least regurgitate it on online forums. Fuzzy is too lazy for that, so he just goes "right on, you've got your finger on the pulse, man!" in response to anything that sounds ideological enough to probably be correct to him, and at best, sometimes CTRL+C CTRL+V's content from InfoWars without even reading it himself.

fuzzy, which band do you prefer, Semisonic or Eve 6?

Be warned: there is a correct answer.

Which is pretty much just as bad as being purposefully and intently racist. It's just a different route to being just as awful a person.
This pretty much sums it all up. As one of, like two people who will argue for fuzzy's soul, I have to say it's pretty disappointing to watch him fail, time and time again, to realize what he's doing. He could very quickly change direction and be a good, solid person (and poster) if he would just stop, think and reconsider his shittier beliefs and how what he says affects other people and their feelings. I believe he has the capacity for it, but he's too pig-headed to do the work.

Also, his performance in this thread was obvious trolling at rbg, and I must say, he did a piss-poor job.

Well, I guess he got the desired reaction out of rbg, but it was paper-thin and unconvincing for everyone on the sidelines.

Poots re: racism:

it's irony, imo. Or maybe I just read it that way?

Fuzzy is not an aggressive viking. He's a good boy at heart.

Maybe I don't read the board enough.

Some posters aren't real people. I've been criticized for not being a real person. This isn't about me. The guy in my avatar died. I'm sad.

It's difficult to align with anyone who is snarling and aggressive on any level

fsr i thought poots was funny. maybe i'm incorrectly remembering him/her/robot but i also don't read anything overtly political here, so who knows what treasures i've missed over the years (thank goodness)

He hides behind irony for plausible deniability, but when you really press him on his attitudes and don't let him meme his way out of a conversation, he shows that he is indeed racist.

that's fair.

i often wonder where the line in the sand is between ironic racism and just being obnoxious.

i certainly don't expect this group of misfits to toe the same party line on any subject matter.

just thinking out loud. also destroy meme culture.

He's also bought into numerous conspiracies convenient to maintaining his preformed beliefs, but you did say "ever" so I've somewhat begrudging left that part out.

No, I think he does argue in good faith. He's not arguing things he doesn't himself believe in. His beliefs are just that fucking stupid sometimes. The rest of the time he is spouting shit that makes no sense at all, if you want to call that arguing in bad faith I guess you could. e.g., dogs are more evolved than cats

What about when he skims past irrefutable counterarguments and, failing to even slightly acknowledge their points, seeks to distract with a flurry of red herrings and otherwise tangential nonsense?

What about when he sets up on an insupportable point of view for days until the chorus of dissent becomes so loud that he brushes off several pages of bad form as a period of drinking and "acting like an ass," only to maintain all beliefs expressed throughout regardless?

What about when he has no argument to speak of at all, opting instead to refer ambiguously to "the greater good" while expressing in no way what that is or how it's being sought?

Why would anybody want to like a guy that finds it uncomfortable to interact with or even look at gay men, genuinely appears to believe that most South Asian women would have "full-on beards" were it not for their beauty routines, and figured that it'd be best for the United States to have a notorious ephebophile in a position of power?
