Response to Starboard Tack (Reply #156)

Wed Feb 8, 2012, 02:57 PM

163. its YOU that need correcting here, not him.

 

"Your biker buddy inferred that people like Southernyankeebelle, who are afraid to be around hotheads with guns, "intentionally remain ignorant"."

Good grief, he did not. He made the statement, and implied that one single entity hereabouts might fit it.

He said this:

""I have no tolerance for those who intentionally remain ignorant and have the audacity to question my judgement on an issue on which I've taken the time to educate myself. "

Gee, lets look upthread, and see how that might apply, shall we?


" I don't know the difference in guns. I don't really care if people want to own them. I hate guns"

Just so theres no doubt there, thats an admission of ignorance. And hatred. It can be reasonable concuded from those statements, that the original poster of that statement is both ignorant about guns - since that much was admitted - and that that poster will most likely remain so, due to the hatred also admitted.

And heres a statement demonstrating said ignorance:

" I don't see what UZIs do for hunting animals."


"Then he goes on to to say how intolerant he is of anyone who might question his judgement on an issue he has taken time to "educate" himself on."

Uh, no. Thats false, and I very much doubt you're unaware of it. He gave multiple qualifications to his statement, which you seem to be deliberately ignoring, in an effort to make like he said something which he in fact did not. That or you never mastered reading beyond the third grade level. Giving you the benefit of the doubt for the moment, and assuming no ill intent on your part:

He did not make a statement which described two different groups of people, "those who intentionally remain ignorant" being one, and those "have the audacity to question my judgement on an issue on which I've taken the time to educate myself" being the other.

Not by ANY reasonable use of the english language did he do so.


He described ONE singular type of individual with the following qualifications - those who:

intentionally remain ignorant and have the audacity to question my judgement on an issue on which I've taken the time to educate myself.


"BTW, I'm not always right, but this time I have no doubt about it."

Uh huh. In what reality does doubling down on being wrong equate to being right?

And speaking of ignorance...

You know, I can understand how and why Southernyankeebelle might be ignorant of guns. That poster had a bad experience with them, hates them, yadda yadda yadda. Thats fine, I have no issue with it.

Its not like guns are something taught in schools...like reading comprehension and usage of the english language.

On that note, first, whats your excuse? Deliberate mischaracterization of 'bikers words due to ideological bent on the gun issue, or simple ignorance of the english language?

If you really ARE forthright, honest, and interested in good faith in any way shape size or form, you'll clear that up.

Second, in either case, you really should appologize, because you ARE wrong, you DID say that another poster said something, which that poster did not at all say.


Like I said, Try it. It doesn't hurt, really. Its what grown ups and people who expect to be treated as such, do when they're wrong and have made a mistake, deliberately, or through ignorance.


I would hope such things rate higher than your personal ideology on the gun issue, or your pride.

If not, well, hey, its your credibility...
