  1. I'm not defending Andy Ngo. I'm pushing back...

    I'm not defending Andy Ngo. I'm pushing back against your defense of criminal assault as an acceptable action against someone for what? Espousing Islamaphobic opinions?

    We're trying to have a...
  2. Your moral compass is broken.

    Your moral compass is broken.
  3. He was criminally assaulted and ended up in the...

    He was criminally assaulted and ended up in the hospital with a hematoma in his head. Nothing justifies that.
  4. I know it's unintentional, but this actually...

    I know it's unintentional, but this actually plays into the prejudices people hold against Russian immigrants. That they're violent and/or connected to organized crime.
  5. I hear people saying Eastern Europeans are shady...

    I hear people saying Eastern Europeans are shady all the time. There absolutely is a prejudice there. And people who would know better than to complain about non-whites will do it because Eastern...

    It being Slate is why it shouldn't be taken seriously long before you get to any items on the list.
  7. Fair enough. The "heroes need to kill more"...

    Fair enough.

    The "heroes need to kill more" thing is just kind of a pet peeve of mind. Feels a lot like "the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" or cops...

    With all the Trek, a very specific one occurred to me.

    There's an episode of The Big Bang Theory where Sheldon is looking to move to the safest place in the US. He determines it is Bozeman,...

    Did the Three Stooges ever have a proper television show?

    The broadcasted shows were just collections of the shorts, weren't they?

    A lot of libertarians would dismiss the Kochs as "cosmotarians".

    Also, the Koch fortune came from Stalin, so they can really shut the hell right up.

    Heh, seriously.

    I'm terrible at lists, I'll just add some shows that haven't been mentioned for consideration:

    Get a Life (Bob Odenkirk and Charlie Kaufman both wrote for this show . . . which...
  13. I think you're taking a narrow view of...

    I think you're taking a narrow view of libertarians though. You're mainly talking about what seems to me to be two groups. The "liberty as a fig leaf" group and the algorithmic group who can't have...

    Yeah, I thought this was pretty much what the experts say about this. No one is really one or the other.
  15. In was invented at the behest of a window...

    In was invented at the behest of a window salesman who didn't like FDR.



    I'm serous about that, by the way.
  16. Personally, I was pushing back harder against...

    Personally, I was pushing back harder against libertarians maybe 5 or 6 years ago. In the current climate of gibbering pablum passing for most opinion pieces, I've never found myself more interested...
  17. "Pure communism" would actually be a stateless...

    "Pure communism" would actually be a stateless society. It's a magic and unicorns idea, but technically that is what it is.

    Mr. Trick from Buffy.

    I know they'd already kept two vampires past the original plan, but I really would have loved some more Mr. Trick.
  19. If anything, Sanders has the opposite problem of...

    If anything, Sanders has the opposite problem of Clinton, in that his refusal to budge much from his positions has left him with a generally ineffective career in the Senate.

    And, just to be a...

    Indiana went for Obama in 08. It's low odds, but possible. Your vote can absolutely matter in Indiana. I'm in New York. I can vote for Santa Claus for all the effect it would have on a...
  21. Warren's and Sanders's campaigns are pretty...

    Warren's and Sanders's campaigns are pretty standard Democratic fare for anyone from FDR through Dukakis.

    The DLC screwed up everyone's perception.
  22. Honestly, I don't think it's that cut-and-dried. ...

    Honestly, I don't think it's that cut-and-dried. There are people in the Middle East who want us to help. They just might be a minority of those needing help in a given situation.
  23. Even in an interventionist view, most people get...

    Even in an interventionist view, most people get "don'ts". You're just picking who gets relief and who doesn't.

    And that's assuming you don't make it worse with your culturally contingent view of...
  24. If it's case-by-case, sure. But that presents...

    If it's case-by-case, sure. But that presents its own problem that it is literally impossible to intervene everywhere someone is requesting help.

    If your policy is just "don't" then that's the...
  25. Non-interventionism isn't a moral position...

    Non-interventionism isn't a moral position though. There's no moral high ground to be claiming to stand on.

    And this pretty much goes back to my original amusement at the anti-Gabbard progressive...
