I’ll try this on my sister, I’ll be back with updates hopefully.
@KingSlooooth22, tell her that non-whites can be racist too! That'll set her off
@biolojist, nah, they already understand that, say, Asians for example can be racist. Instead, try "blacks can be racist" or "stop racism against white people"
@KingSlooooth22, good luck!
@Ajunta Pall, I like, “Islam is right about women!”
Ooo boy, talk about tying them in knots!
@Hot Coffee, Oh that's perfect!
@biolojist, we ourselves are non-white
@Ajunta Pall, slightly off topic, but if you haven’t seen anything from the lotuseaters.com you might find their content refreshing, they push back against the woke.
@KingSlooooth22, so you’re racist? We don’t take to kindly to your type round here
@biolojist, My (white) brother experienced quite a lot of racism when he lived in China. A woke friend of mine tried to tell me that this was not racism, it was an oppressed minority rising up and ‘expressing their truth’ or something. She got huffy when I pointed out that Asian people are not a minority in China.... (They’re also not a minority globally - Asia makes up 60% of the world’s population, and Han Chinese is the single largest ethnic group on Earth).
@Nellybert , Look up "racist chinese washing machine commercial". The Chinese are extremely racist.
@Proactive Citizenry , nothing really says "I base my worldview on Ben Shapiro" like comparing ourselves to an authoritarian shethole.
@KingSlooooth22, I’m back it was very successful she gave up in about two minutes.
Gotta respect a man who breaks women's weightlifting records.
@dj evolve fan club, we don’t actually “ree” and I find the insinuation that we do so offen-REEEEEEEE!!!
@dj evolve fan club, no, no, it's us "far-right Nazis" that ree.
@Ajunta Pall, *the moment u realize Facebook and CNN aren't news and u just got played
@Ajunta Pall, I'm basically at the point where the most I can give is a reh.
@dj evolve fan club, the moment you realize parler and Oan are not news and you just got played
Bring emotion into an argument and you already lost
@megamanx181x, sounds exactly like something a nazi would say!
@big freedom, gasp!!
@megamanx181x, sorry but thats not even remotely true in the real world. It's a nice term Shapiro made up to not actually have to debate. topics outside his cherry picked examples. But emotion absolutely matters in the real world with real people. Also logic is 100% subjective, and it's hilarious that the right wing "woke" crowd thinks it isn't
@hollow1104, I would say in the work setting yes, in your personal life I believe emotion is critical to channel through to people when they aren’t listening to what your saying
@megamanx181x, the problem I have with this statement is it's almost always used when one party has done their homework and debates someone who has to go based on how they feel, simply because people don't have the time to get peer reviewed data on everything. However it completely ignores that the person who did their homework will absolutely have a bias. I'm gonna use Shapiro as an argument again. But the dude tends to fall apart in any formal debate setting where both parties are given time to research their arguments.
And of course college aged kids are still finding their feet, but I'm a well adjusted adult progressive who will absolutely do better at arguing progressive policy than a teenager.
@hollow1104, good point, I mean this is in case by case basis and I did learn a new perspective that you brought up right now
Love Zuby! Dude’s freakin awesome!
The funny thing is, both sides believe this is true of the other. Both believe they are the rational ones and the others are based completely on emotion.
@CaliforniaDuck, typically it's both sides creating strawman arguments, then patting themselves on the back. I find a lot of Maga people actively try and avoid engaging with anyone who is actually an expert on progressive or even leftist policy. I'm sure liberals prefer picking on magas over libertarians. or just look at any time Ben Shapiro goes against anyone even remotely prepared to tear apart his arguments. Instead of picking on 18 year Olds who are passionate but still green
@CaliforniaDuck, read ‘The Righteous Mind’ by Jonathan Haidt.
Later he was banned on all social media outlets
I like how there is the "woke cult" versus actually woke people.
If this was even remotely the case most "facts" people would be liberal. Like mathematicaly they are better. That, and a lot of right wing people seem to actively ignore any science that doesn't fit their narrative.
Yeah that emotion that pushed them into it is often rooted in being an outsider, so that emotion isn't gonna help them leave. Try making them feel included in more sane groups of people
