Perhaps not, or perhaps so.

You can make such large concepts fit into most things if you really think on them.

We're on FJ though, so I would not place much merit into our... title making abilities or rationales.

As does explicitly threatening someone.

I still only focus on the individual and his actions. Others could call him a demon or a saint... to me it makes little difference. I make my judgement, nothing more and nothing less.

I meant for that to inform you that you should not think too hard on the rather harsh verbatim that is used online. People tend to be assholes in anonymity after all, again it's FJ.

Issue over example. When you go off of example, you've already lost to bias in one way or another. Perhaps another way to word this is subject over presentation.

But why lie and say an attack occurred and call him a racial slur? Why not post something like "Anti-Trump Idiot BTFO"? or something following the same character? OP strikes me as a pol troll trying to stir shit.

That is exactly what he is...

That is why you hold yourself to a higher standard. Despite the crass way it is presented, it does inevitably bring out the real problems. That is our job to decipher.

I'm sure you could find this presented differently elsewhere... and find the same conclusions I have laid forth for you.

Being the better person is hard when you're comparing yourself to those below or above yourself. Focus on your station, over that of another. You can only make yourself better... and perhaps influence others to better themselves.

Nah, actually i'm saying that FJ overdoeses on black tweets for months at a time yet will turn their nose at this because it's convenient to feeling superior.

they see, to feel personally threated that people with no power on the internet don't like white people, everything is an excuse to blame other people, or to call yourself better, it's pathetic. Be it black people, or muslums or SJW's there's alot of indiscriminate hate, and It's tiring. Good talk though.

Fair enough. I can agree with you in that regard in certain situations, but I will leave it at that. Not because I ascribe to certain views and enjoy them being put into good/better light... but rather because I have a taste for the concepts of justice (oh boy is this one a vague ass one), logic, and calling out bullshit.

I can't fathom allowing things that damage the structure of human dignity (ie people being completely idiotic and ignorant). We're supposed to be great... and instead we have become, for the most part, petty and selfish as a people. Ignorance and the like are diseases, that spread like wildfire... and social media is only accentuating their influence.

Perhaps I'm making it sound far too moralistic than I should. Ironic, considering I'm talking to theism.

Fair point, I wasn't necessarily saying it was completely justified to blow it out of proportions. I only stated it brought to light this individual, for better or for worse, about how idiotic he was.

So I was only arguing against any attempt to validate his actions. I hope I'm being fair in that regard.

So I guess I can agree with you, but in all honesty I don't care much for it. I enjoy seeing stupid actions like this getting backlash. To me it's probably the only way to dissuade ignorant people from following suit. Not effective, but it's something.

People take most kinds of threats seriously, especially if it's near impossible to surmise if it's a joke.

But yes, if it brings you satisfaction he didn't do anything (to my knowledge, not sure about that bragging shit it talked about). Still should not have even threatened something like that. He's not a saint for not going through with it, he shouldn't have been in the position in the first place. That doesn't absolve the individual from his stupidity, rashness and ignorance.

It's debatable, and it's one of the many "could have beens".

I think the point people are making is that people would make a threat (whether they carry it out or not) over something so petty. You can never know if someone will act on it... and others may take up the same stupid ideas. It doesn't make for a safe environment at least. Like it wasn't even an implied or nuanced threat, it was very openly stated and made public.

But why lie and say an attack occurred and call him a racial slur? Why not post something like "Anti-Trump Idiot BTFO"? or something following the same character? OP strikes me as a pol troll trying to stir shit.

That is exactly what he is...

That is why you hold yourself to a higher standard. Despite the crass way it is presented, it does inevitably bring out the real problems. That is our job to decipher.

I'm sure you could find this presented differently elsewhere... and find the same conclusions I have laid forth for you.

Being the better person is hard when you're comparing yourself to those below or above yourself. Focus on your station, over that of another. You can only make yourself better... and perhaps influence others to better themselves.

I've seen posts here on FJ with similar things, but when FJ has a chance to bash on black people, it's suddenly a problem.
#257 - ninjabadger (02/12/2016) [-]
If I am reading you correctly, you're basically highlighting that double standard of "we can only bash on white people for ignorance (with race in the issue or not)".

If so, and correct me if I am wrong, I can totally agree that it is pretty ridiculous... the whole race thing being a factor. I judge people on their actions and the merits of their being. The melanin in your skin doesn't change your ignorance or other faults... and you shouldn't be able to hide behind that in order to continue ignorance.

People will point fingers and redirect, but at the end of the day when you judge people on their actions and on the now... many of them are not on the logical or moral high ground (at least not the the degree they believe they are).

It's pathetic how we've made race into such a huge ordeal... although that fault lies with history. We're all human for god's sake. The only reason we don't get along is because we make it so we do not get along. A huge human ideal is the concept of moving forward, whether through advancement of knowledge/culture or simply the perseverance to overcome.

And yet we seem to be at an impasse in this regard with race, at the present time. Saddening really.

Nah, actually i'm saying that FJ overdoeses on black tweets for months at a time yet will turn their nose at this because it's convenient to feeling superior.

they see, to feel personally threated that people with no power on the internet don't like white people, everything is an excuse to blame other people, or to call yourself better, it's pathetic. Be it black people, or muslums or SJW's there's alot of indiscriminate hate, and It's tiring. Good talk though.

I don't know, "I'll smash this bitches computer" is pretty goddamn straightforward.

And guess what, no one is going to take that kind of shit lying down, so when/if she reacted he probably would have caused her harm. That or the loser would just harass her with words like the ever so decent chap he is.

He clearly has a lot of self-control and can make smart decisions on the fly.

I could care less what sides goes against what side here, it's a pretty straightforward thing. I don't approve of harassment of something so petty. It's stupid and childish.

It's debatable, and it's one of the many "could have beens".

I think the point people are making is that people would make a threat (whether they carry it out or not) over something so petty. You can never know if someone will act on it... and others may take up the same stupid ideas. It doesn't make for a safe environment at least. Like it wasn't even an implied or nuanced threat, it was very openly stated and made public.

No... no gods no I'm not one of those people.

Listen I'm not saying it's a responsibility of a university to make safe space(in the way those safe space people argue it, you're familiar with it)bullshit. But there is a line where you should be able to express your political stances in a passive manner without having the risk of some moron lashing out in pure ignorance. Like seriously, idiotic things like this are worrying because stupidity is incredibly dangerous... and the worst part is they won't even realize how irrational or mundane they are being.

"bruh i'm defending/stating my views in a way I know how to"

No you're being an asshat with no sense of rationality or even practical thinking skills. Be a bigger man and at the very least put out your damn views in a respectful/rational manner. Like it can't be hard to see what I'm saying here. I mean hell if you hate the trump supporters with the fury of 10,000 suns than hey, you do you fam. But don't be a fucking moron about it and threaten people over something that simple. It's as if these people weren't taught common sense or the concept of respect.

You pointed out above people take death threats seriously.

People take most kinds of threats seriously, especially if it's near impossible to surmise if it's a joke.

But yes, if it brings you satisfaction he didn't do anything (to my knowledge, not sure about that bragging shit it talked about). Still should not have even threatened something like that. He's not a saint for not going through with it, he shouldn't have been in the position in the first place. That doesn't absolve the individual from his stupidity, rashness and ignorance.

Fair point, I wasn't necessarily saying it was completely justified to blow it out of proportions. I only stated it brought to light this individual, for better or for worse, about how idiotic he was.

So I was only arguing against any attempt to validate his actions. I hope I'm being fair in that regard.

So I guess I can agree with you, but in all honesty I don't care much for it. I enjoy seeing stupid actions like this getting backlash. To me it's probably the only way to dissuade ignorant people from following suit. Not effective, but it's something.

Personally I wish the whole tribalistic bullshit where people blow up over every slight towards a member of their pet cause would stop, so when I see someone actually support it I'm not going to pass up the chance to call it out.
User avatar
#259 - ninjabadger (02/12/2016) [-]
Fair enough. I can agree with you in that regard in certain situations, but I will leave it at that. Not because I ascribe to certain views and enjoy them being put into good/better light... but rather because I have a taste for the concepts of justice (oh boy is this one a vague ass one), logic, and calling out bullshit.

I can't fathom allowing things that damage the structure of human dignity (ie people being completely idiotic and ignorant). We're supposed to be great... and instead we have become, for the most part, petty and selfish as a people. Ignorance and the like are diseases, that spread like wildfire... and social media is only accentuating their influence.

Perhaps I'm making it sound far too moralistic than I should. Ironic, considering I'm talking to theism.

Going off the title I don't think this post has anything to do with justice, logic or anything like that.

Perhaps not, or perhaps so.

You can make such large concepts fit into most things if you really think on them.

We're on FJ though, so I would not place much merit into our... title making abilities or rationales.

As does explicitly threatening someone.

I still only focus on the individual and his actions. Others could call him a demon or a saint... to me it makes little difference. I make my judgement, nothing more and nothing less.

I meant for that to inform you that you should not think too hard on the rather harsh verbatim that is used online. People tend to be assholes in anonymity after all, again it's FJ.

Issue over example. When you go off of example, you've already lost to bias in one way or another. Perhaps another way to word this is subject over presentation.
