1. Is hate radio supposed to fix it?

Because that seems like kind of a stupid idea.

2. I'm not sure pointing out stupidity qualifies as hate.

 

If that is what your response is suggesting

3. that's your opinion

LOL

I think the whole purpose of that ad is to generate hate or contempt. For fans of this radio show to feel smarter by laughing at the hapless idiots who "do not trust the President". See how stupid the Sharks are? It is so cool to be a Jet and to mock the stupidity of the Sharks.

4. Rex Ryan makes it impossible

to respect the Jets. This is coming from a fan of the team that dodged that bullet.

8. when I speak of the Jets, despite my icon

I am talking about a gang, not a football team.

And not even a football team that acts and plays like a gang

Jets and Sharks. http://journals.democraticunderground.com/hfojvt/122

Not Jets and Dolphins.

West Side Story not NFL.

6. Shannyn is not at all like that.

I know her personally. She's been speaking a lot of truth here for a lot of years and she has endured threats. I think she's justified in pointing out "the stupid."

9. she may not be like that

but the ad is.

To me, threats come from "the mean" and not "the stupid". Then again, many people will get mean when they are mocked and laughed at.

27. you think the guy is just mean, and not stupid???

To me, threats come from "the mean" and not "the stupid".

the idea of 'causing the shooting' is beyond stupid to begin with.

the fact that is was after the actual election, well, we might have to invent a whole new word for that!!
brain-daz-ficient-dim-otic-becilic-able, loser?

ludicrous, meaningless, mindless, moronic, naive, nonsensical, obtuse, out to lunch, pointless, puerile, rash, senseless, shortsighted, simple, simpleminded, slow, sluggish, stolid, stupefied, thick, thick-headed, trivial, unintelligent, unthinking, witless
Notes: stupid refers to lack of ability while ignorant refers to lack of knowledge

so he's both stoopid AND ignorant!

and mean!

i disagree with the word 'strong' in the ad-
it should have said 'the stupid is LARGE' or 'racism is extensive' or 'people who repeat alex joneses' crap are stupid, watch out for these fools, there could be one in your workplace'

i don't think repeating something a hate-monger 'thinks' counts as free speech.

more like adult bullying.

look up the concept of groupthink. it is NOT a good thing.

40. Sorry, when someone says something that's blatantly stupid or crazy, we're not allowed to note . . .

. . . that what they said is, in fact, blatantly stupid or crazy, because doing so would be "hateful"?

Yes, let's just nod quietly and smile, and go along to get along with the delusional worldviews of others.

Let's just keep biting our tongues and changing the subject.

Let's never challenge flaming ignorance or fourth-hand paranoia or straight-up bullshit, because that would make us just like them, right?

Whatever.
