are you saying that in socialism land there isn't a place for people like downey?

how wonderfully bigotted of you

I'm surprised that you even have to ask. Of course, that is exactly what I was saying.

As much as I enjoy watching your meltdown, if "keep that same energy" triggers you, you might be a little too sensitive for the real world.

Nice projecting.  So educated that you don't even understand how to use quotation marks.

he would be in the gulag wouldn't he.

btw, im upset that the moderators didn't give me the chance to see all the lessons you had posted for me.

truly disappointed.

but if you dont think student loan payoffs and allowing non citizens to receive GOVT handouts are socialist programs, im pretty sure the other socialists would ostracize you for not being socialist enough

Not everything needs to be a gotchya moment. I said that, because multiple people have said its not bad for him, but I really only ever see what is on Insta. I thought that was relevant.

oh your OP wasn't a gotchya?

You manically responded to every post on the thread, defending socialism like your life was on the line. 

The same groups, like Antifa that are constantly trying to force socialism down our throats also get very defensive when people mention Communists b/c they are aware many people lump them into the same category. That is the exact reason you are triggered. You know this but won't admit it and refuse to point to any other part of the post that was divisive enough for this post. Because you can't. 

and i didn't get to see it!

im truly disappointed... it must have been like red october

1. Most definitely. 10-life service atleast for speaking out against the party. We need to fix his bourgeois ways.

2. It really is too bad.

3. I never said those were not socialist. It's very clear you are out of your element any any discussion about these things since you dont know what you dont know.

I don’t know much about PD3 and I don’t care what his politics are. 

But I can tell you that a lot of people will feel that that post comes off as confrontational, aggressive, and unpleasant.

And it’s too bad because we are all looking for reasons to cheer for our world team members. 

as opposed to the people who are confrontational, aggressive, and unpleasant. to him on this board?

 

do you think jden cox is confrontational, aggressive, and unpleasant....b/c he feels the same way that PD3 does

Let's go through the post, shall we?

  1. He begins by calling out foreign officials. It may or may not be justified at this point in UWW's history, but for a person casually reading an instagram post, it comes off as abrasive and aggressive.
  2. Then he writes: "to the haters, trolls, naysayers & communists.. KEEP YALLS SAME ENERGY" Again, for a person unfamiliar with his personal quarrels, it simply comes off as abrasive and aggressive. (And like I said before, I actually wondered whether he was suffering from psychosis.)
  3. Then he writes: "if you're not with ME when I'm down, iont wantchu when I'm UP." As someone who is generally unfamiliar with Downey, this does not feel like he wants my support. It feels like he has already taken an oppositional stance toward me.

Even if you don't think this post comes off poorly, I can tell you lots of other people will.

you are right, he should have called out USA officials for scoring his matches wrong

As for the criticism of foreign officials. I was referring to his statement that “living & dying by big moves can be costly, especially overseas.” That statement expresses a resentment toward foreign officials that will off-putting to a lot people who are just casually reading his post (whether his resentment is justified or not). Just the way it is.

But my bottom line point is that a lot of people will find his post to be unpleasant. If you think the post is benign or even inspiring, that’s completely fine. I’m just commenting on how plenty of other people will feel about it. 

And with that I’m leaving this thread. 

People are offended by just about everything nowadays. So that isn't saying much. Plenty of people hate Downey, so there will never be a shortage of people trying to find something wrong or "divisive" in his actions. But if someone is offended by "Living and dying by big moves can be costly, especially overseas", they are most likely a crazy person and no better than PD3.

Socialism = government runs the show.

Capitalism = private sector runs it.

Reality = Both are running it; capitalism can't succeed w/o government help, i.e., tax-breaks, writeoffs, grants, subsidies, and favorable legislation of all sorts (See New Deal).

The big and most important difference is capitalism's respect for individuality and initiative.

About what? What socialism is or communism? Havent we been down this road before? Google it. Now I'm on the end of a McCarthy hearing because I didnt think everything you didnt like about the world equaled socialism. 

 

The fact is, I could explain what it is, as I have multiple times, and it wouldnt matter. You're level of cynicism automatically leads to me being a called communist sympathizer, left wing radical, or even antifa gets thrown around. I would consider myself as a centrist, but me simply pointing out that socialism is not what you have been saying in your mind makes me radical. Facts dont matter to you @GockeS

Wow... you got me... arguing about a quotation mark.  Gee... that's deep.

Must be painful being so insecure you had to pull the "Quotation Mark" defense.

But don't worry, we believe you when you say that the communist, Bolshevist, Trotskyite Easter Bunny is out to get you and Bun Top at the same time.

Got it.

.... pretty sure, I spent one evening talking about @GockeS misunderstanding of what socialism is. The reason I did that was because he was throwing that word around, tying it to anything he didnt like,  and it was clear he didnt know what he was talking about. I said nothing about communism that evening, but you cannot separate the two bc you clearly dont understand it either.

i missed the lessons you speak about.

please please help me be a better comrade.

your level of cynicism told me that you wouldn't judge me about my story of faith.

yet you did anyway.

is there a difference in our actions?

I mean, I could also criticize your misuse of ellipses. But you probably wouldn't have any clue what I was talking about...
