That's the gungeon base.

The will crawl all over. Not just gun threads. They want to distract from gun issues.

They think we will forget.

Not this time. Not after twenty kindergarteners.

Someone here said that Rushboy was quoting (and not in a good way) DU the other day. It was on a thread. That may be why we are seeing an influx.

The GOP is running scared.

Just report and ignore.

They are gun loons. They speak some the same cryptic-'I know more than you do' semi-libertarian patter as some gungeoneers.

23. I disagree with almost everything you post, BUT

I wouldn't call you a "troll".

I have seen a lot of suspicion over newbies, which I think are unjustified. And to be honest, there are a lot of long-term trolls here. But this site is about airing different opinions.

In that respect, I may disagree with (almost) anything you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Personally, there are a lot of trolls who have tried to infiltrate DU, but the "troll" label has been thrown around way too much for any intelligent conversation.

Again, I am definitely NOT part of the Manny Goldstein fan club - but I wouldn't call you a "troll".

26. Me, too! BUT,

you are one of the WORST that I have seen parroting tired rw talking points.

Are you a "troll"? I don't think so. I think you are an idealist with no pragmatic skills which means you are forever doomed to fail. I think you would be better aligned with the Green Party or some other unrealistic far-left party which succumbs to you own personal unrealistic ideals - But I don't think you are a "troll".

Although sometimes you seem determine to distract us and convince us to vote against the Democratic Party. In which case, you would be considered a "troll".

29. If that is true, should we not welcome them?

If we are truly a "big tent" party and open to debate, shouldn't we welcome their opinions?

Maybe some of what they learned was brain-washing, but if they have stepped beyond that shouldn't we welcome them?

Or are we just as brain-washed as they were?

I don't think so.

Seems like the standard invasion when a powerful lobby has its interests in the cross-hairs. After Fukishima we had a similar invasion, but of the nuclear persuasion.

51. I think I have it figured out

If your comments and opinions are to the right of someone (the offended) that may mean you're a troll? Perhaps if your comments and opinions are too far too the left, so much so that you wrapped back around and find yourself at my first example, landing slightly to the right of someone else then you may be a troll? Wait, that can't be right, no I got it, I think it's pretty much if you believe yourself to be in the majority and someone elses opinion and comments are contrary to what you believe the majority opinion is then you are a troll. Close?

Of course I do believe there are those that create accounts specifically to incite, start a fire then leave but the troll paranois is getting stupid, just because someone doesn't fit your idea of a certified card carrying <insert label here> does'nt mean they are a troll and trying to start crap.

Freepers, naturally adept at mispelling words, mistakenly typed "Democratic Underground" and came here instead.
