I mean, if you're neither a conservative nor a liberal, then occassionally, you might consider spamming the board with threads that aren't so vociferously anti-liberal.
And yes, I understand your explanation that you're only anti-liberal because you're so often exposed to them. I find that to be innately fallacious logic, because finding non-liberal sources is as easy as flipping the channel to fox or to Limbaugh.
I find it hard to believe that entire hosts of liberal activists are marching louldy past your door with any greater regularity than they employ anywhere else in the country. So avoiding them is as easy as changing the fucking channel.
Hell, I probably listen to conservative programming more than you do. I once forced myself to sit through an entire episode of hannity's radio show. It was all the way live.
With the notable exception of, say the Travelling Vinny Show, the person here who is most responsible for thrusting Obama into our faces is you. And vinny's not even around here that much. This shit would be hilariously ironic, given the basis of your beef with liberals, being obnoxious and what-not.
If you want to play the villain and draw strife onto yourself, start a thread about how Superman eats all the dicks for a change. or point out how you find it amusing that George Lucas happily flosses the plaque off his ass with the hopes and dreams of over-the-hill fanboys. Even the conservatives on the board get tired of seeing all the Obama threads.
But seriously, Jude, you have some very simple and basic solutions to your concerns.
--If you don't want to be blasted with what you perceive to be liberal viewpoints all the time, watch or listen to some prgramming with conservative bias instead.
--If you don't want anyone to label you as a conservative, it might behoove you to ease up on repeatedly spewing the party line.
Of the five or six Obama threads on the front page last night, I started one of them - a joke thread comparing Obama to Hitler.
It's not "just as easy" to avoid liberal propaganda, because yes, I could choose to listen to Rush and watch Fox News all day, if all I was interested in was political talk. But liberal propaganda is subtly there in everything else. For instance, when I turn on Comedy Central, I AM reading the channel description correctly, right? It is a "comedy" channel, not leftist political talk? Because it doesn't seem like it.
So I guess what you're saying is that non-liberals don't have a right to be entertained? We should only watch or listen to conservative political talk radio or Fox News - everything else is off limits? Because you can't watch comedy or, for instance, listen to music, without having some crap shoved down your throat.
This is my problem - the liberal message is entrenched in our society in very subtle ways, but it is highly obnoxious when you recognize it. Take comic books for instance. You wouldn't call comic books blatant propaganda. After all, they're loudly printing VOTE OBAMA, VOTE DEMOCRAT on the covers. But when you have Bush appear in a story here or there, and he's a sniveling coward, or a madman, and then you have Obama appear as a hero with Spiderman, it's sending a subtle message: liberals are good, conservatives are bad. It's not an overt message, it's just treated as if these are the facts. It's taken for granted that everyone agrees with it. And I find that insulting to my intelligence.
Thus it aggravates me. Now sure, if I was a country music fan and I really liked Toby Keith or something, I would probably be bitching "why can't I just listen to country music without some conservative propaganda thrown in there." But I'm not. So I don't hear it. I'm a progressive, open-minded, intelligent person, and I want to enjoy smart, thoughtful forms of entertainment, but the smug liberal media takes it for granted that only liberals are smart. Conservatives are stupid. So all these supposed "comedy, entrainment" shows just treat you like you're in on the joke - haha, look at those stupid conservatives. Sorry, I don't agree, and it pisses me off.
