Another blog to spam[edit]

CP seems to be rapidly becoming a sort of "planet ex-conservapedians", just aggregating the blogs of people who once called CP home. The latest is "Bishop Bert", who sounds like a sort of knock-off Christian muppet (OK, he is a Christian muppet) but is actually our favourite KAL 007 conspiracy theorist. Popeye does the honoursimg, and I presume he did again before Kendoll stole the creditimg. All we need now is for JPatt to start posting on MPR about his tweets and the collapse of Conservapedia will be complete. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:18, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

I was just going over some old Andyisms and enjoying his entire rant about Hurricane Irene last year when it struck me no-one seemed to bring up his whining that liberals over-reacted to the threat of a possible storm. A year later Hurricane Sandy hits. DogP (talk) 17:13, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

"Obama - destroying a racist America"[edit]

"My fear is we will not be able to say the same about the path Obama will forge, as he continues to wrest freedom from our fingertips, impose regulations and executive orders, implement massive taxes and government control, while he strikes blow after blow against a colonialist, a racist, a capitalist America." - I am hammered while writing this (... did I really just participate in a drunk spelling bee? ... and lose badly) - but I found it pretty funny.--Danielfolsom (talk) 04:48, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

I love their outrage at the precincts that voted 100% for Obama. (Many of them voted 100% for Obama the first time, and 100% against Bush as well.) These are precincts where a Republican would not feel safe to drive a car, much less live. I'd love to see someone from the CNAV stable quit bitching and go research this first-hand. Let's see Terry go door-to-door in one of these Philly neighborhoods, looking for the disenfranchised Republicans. Whoover (talk) 06:32, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Actually, he's writing that sentence from what he believes to be Obama's perspective. It's a meme on the right that Obama is a radical postcolonialist driven for vengeance against whitey for slavery and imperialism. It's based on pretty sketchy evidence (his father is from Kenya!!) and would probably be applied to any black liberal president, along with dog whistles like "he's angry."--"Shut up, Brx." 17:25, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

What the what?[edit]

Evolutionist women are like drippy faucets.img Creationist women, on the other hand, are breeding machines.

Rpeh, no doubt you're an atheist evolutionist who doesn't know about peanut butter. I honestly didn't know that Ken has rigorous data to prove that atheist women prefer the smooth variety. You learn something every day. Cardinal Fang (talk) 21:16, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Kenny's a tricky one. Half the time I think he's serious, and other times there's a glimpse of sanity or abject "nobody can honestly believe that"ery that make me reconsider. Puts me in the mind of Sherlock, Moriarty's story of Sir Boastalot.
Sir Boastalot was the bravest and cleverest knight at the Round Table. But soon the other knights began to grow tired of his stories about how brave he was and how many dragons he'd slain. And soon they began to wonder. Are Sir Boastalot's stories even true? Oh no. So one of the knights went to King Arthur and said, "I don't believe Sir Boastalot's stories. He's just a big old liar who makes things up to make himself look good." And then, even the king began to wonder.
I'm not getting at Kenny's boastings about how many times the dragon of evolutionism will be slain by the knights of the blahblahblah ask my arse. I'm getting at that it looks like he's gibbering batfuck crazy, but I'm wondering. Whether he's lying about that. Give it enough fairy dust and blue moons, even King Andy has to start wondering eventually.
On a side note, I think that edit's against the "don't mention sex" thing on CP. Dripping faucets? Ken, you dirty-minded pervert, you. --جئت ورأيت أنا القرف gross, isn't it? 21:40, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Ken's bullshit about evolutionist woman is starting to piss me off a little. So I am offering him a challenge. Here is me with my evolution believing, atheist wife. Your move Ken, can you show me yourself with a "Long haired, creationist, wife sweetheart"? Do you have the machismo?

I think for Kendoll, whose every word drips with hypocrisy so thick you could dye it yellow and call is custard, it's a legitimate challenge. Evolutionists are too cowardly to debate? What debates have you been in Ken? Evolutionist women are cold fish, butch dykes?

Ken's Reply[edit]

Summarized: Show me a 50 year anniversary picture. There's a secret cabal in CP. I don't want to show a picture of my beloved even though I demand you show me yours. I assume she doesn't act like women in the Bible. Linkspam linkspam linkspam. If a woman FEARS god, she's cool. Nothing new, but that "leftovers Christians leave on their plates" bit is just weird.

oops, forgot to cap, but oh well, nothing worth saving. Lacking some machismo there, Ken? lol AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 16:24, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Gone already? Ah well. Poking Ken with a stick just isn't fun anymore. It's just sad. The manchild becomes less coherent with each passing day and the more attention we pay him and his silly blog, the more he thinks he's winning and the more unhinged he gets. I know we always suggest it, and it always fails miserably (and I'm just as guilty) but maybe it's best - for his health, if not our amusement - if we ignore him for a bit. I know he's the only one doing anything notable on CP - which in itself speaks volumes - but playing on Ken's delusions is as bad as taking candy from thalidomide babies. And as easy. --PsyGremlinTala! 16:32, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

So now people long for the halcyon days of the 70s?[edit]

"My overriding point is that the direction is wrong, going back 35 years, my lifetime..." This is getting way beyond ridiculous now. I'm accustomed to Conservatives of various stripes pining for the 50s, even if they weren't alive then, but, "holy shit, things were so much better in '78", is a fresh load of bullshit to me. The dumbest part is that he hits all the usual good things seemingly without any awareness that a lot of the "Scary Changes That Eroded Our Good Things" happened in the 60s and early 70s. It's a delusion even for the 50s to say abortion wasn't an issue, but how can someone who probably rages about Roe v. Wade in his spare time not realize that it happened about 5 years before he was born? I wonder if there's a psychological term for people's weird certainty that the world was perfect and perfectly conformed to them when they were six. -- Ellipsoidal (talk) 07:48, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Actually, he may just be a shit writer, and half that stuff is intended be a hypothetical him that existed in a more perfect time before he was born. I have to remember these guys are just playing journalist. -- Ellipsoidal (talk) 08:05, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
To be fair, the time before he was born is slightly better than after he was born on account of having one less him in the world. --Zipperback (talk) 18:56, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Trimming your problems away, the Andy way.[edit]

See no evilimg! Good old Andy, sweeping problems under the rug since 2007. Anything to keep the manchild who accounts for most of CP's edits happy. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:22, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Hey! If it's not there, he doesn't have to respond to it. Of course, it's a big "fuck you" to the peons on his site, and now Ken will be even more unplayable "You ran to Andy, but Andy did nothing, so I'm right! Na-na-nana-na!" --PsyGremlinTal! 18:28, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
What's really bizarre is the fact that Andy called the comments "non-substantive." It's as if he's implying that he AGREES that David Patraeus lacks machismo. Obviously it's doubtful that Andy does....I wonder if he lets his own kids get away with this much insanity?

Yay! Uganda will be killing gays soon! (unlike those faggy scandinavian countries)[edit]

Everyone's favourite schizophrenic is currently creaming himself over the fact that Uganda might be attempting to violently eradicate one of it's minorities this Christmas.img This therefore is responsible for Uganda having a higher rate of birth, and thus makes it intrinsically better than the (and I quote) "perverse secular libertines in Sweden and Denmark". As always, I see little reason to pull apart the gibbering of a severely mentally ill manchild, but would this also not imply the US to be a "perverse libertine" nation? Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 16:42, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Ugh, he's a revolting little man. He's actually celebrating that a country wants to put people to death for the crime of loving someone of their own sex. Kendoll, you've gone too far. You're a fucking monster. Go fuck off to Uganda and take Scott Lively and co. with you. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:23, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Whats more revolting, ken saying it or the probability andy will do nothing more but maybe quietly vanish it? --Mikal Harass Follow 17:31, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Andy probably agrees with Ken. I know Ed does. They're all a bunch of fuckwits over there, they'd kill people who don't think like them in a second if they thought they could get away with it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:34, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
It's to our eternal shame that white colonists indoctrinated Africans with Christianity. As Desmond Tutu said:
When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said "Let us pray." We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.
So cheering on the introduction of the death penalty for homosexuality is a real nadir for Ken Demyer. Is that what you call pro-life? Thankfully there are some sane people in Uganda such as Freethought Kampala, which I find quite heartening. Also I try to do my own small part by sponsoring scholarships for pupils at the Uganda Humanist Schools; we'd be grateful for any contributions.

It's not just the death penalty (although that's obviously the worst bit). You can get years in jail for "abetting" homosexuality or not reporting your suspicions. It's a really, really odious law. rpeh •TCE 18:11, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Anger Bear rearguarding for Kendollimg I see. Apparently it isn't Christians... because.. er... because brown people aren't Christian? I don't even know. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:47, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Oh Kara. "It's not Christians," you say:
In this conservative east African country, Mugisha and other prominent gay rights campaigners say Bahati's initial bill was introduced directly after a March 2009 conference in Kampala that hosted representatives from the U.S. "ex-gay" movement. U.S. evangelical pastor Scott Lively, who spoke at the conference, said it focused on the "recovery from homosexuality" and warned Ugandans the gay movement sought to "homosexualise society" and undermine the institution of marriage.[1]
Apparently the death penalty clause has been removed. Still, "let's imprison people different to us!" I wonder where I've heard that before? --PsyGremlinHable! 19:00, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
I seriously think Scott Lively and his ilk should be charged for attempting to instigate a genocide in Uganda. Whats worse is that you can tell from interviews where he is called out on his bullshit that the sole reason he chose Uganda to spew his filth is because there he can not only get away with it, but have his utterly insane and painfully obvious lies accepted as gospel truth by a majority of the population, and thus see his preaching lead to genuine persecution and suffering. Hes just a sick little shit on a power trip Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 19:55, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Look people, as much as I share the outrage about the 'law' and the positive comments it has received please cut the armchair psychiatry. Bandying words like schizophrenic around especially as some sort of insult are frankly offensive to anyone affected by mental health issues. I very much doubt that you will be able to raise yourselves out of the same sewer as Conservapedia but it would be nice if you tried. Sphincter (talk) 19:47, 17 November 2012 (UTC)

Uh... im fine with stopping calling Kenny schizophrenic (even though I honestly was not using it as an insult) but how exactly are we in "the same sewer as Conservapedia"? When people call Ken out, its not because he is mentally ill, it is because he is a bigoted, hatefull little shitstain Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 19:55, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
Oh dear.img He seems to be supporting genocide here.img I don't even no how to express this properly..but Conservative's thread of logic is terrifying. He seems to think that conducting genodice against gay people is "ok" because they're probably, as his articles allege , bad people who would hurt society if they were left alive. Andrew Schlafly, if you are reading this: this man could be a ticking time bomb. He might seem benign and impotent, but there's some horrifying, almost serial-killer esq undertones in some of his more recent writings. User: Conservative can be a reasoned person at times, but if you keep on allowing him to think that this sort of mentality is "acceptable," you're only fueling his decay.WilliamR (talk) 01:00, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I think the most amazing bit of his disgusting screed is where he talks about cost-benefit analysis. Because, that's just what Jesus taught us. If society benefits from killing off a particular group of people, then that's just what Jesus would do. Phiwum (talk) 01:55, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
You know, with Conservative's "Turn or burn" quote, I think that Brenden has a legitimate case of conservative threatening /harassing him,going beyond the usual trolling. Were this a more reasonable wiki, Conservative could be reprimanded for his actions. Sadly, this is not the caseWilliamR (talk) 02:00, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

I want to mention that Conservapedia knows very well - and since a long time - what thet Ugandese bill is about. An older version of the article about Uganda says "This bill would have done a lot to prevent the spread of AIDS in a continent already ravaged by the disease, and is punishment sanctioned by God in the Bible for homosexuality. In true liberal fashion, members promoting the gay agenda worldwide, including President Obama, pressured the Ugandan parliament to drop the legislation, interfering with the rights of a democratic government to make laws based on the will of the people, and the rights of people to practice their religion." http://conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Uganda&action=historysubmit&diff=920471&oldid=689951 To be fair: Andy didn't write anything in that article, and the section has been edited later.

Seriously? I knew they were homophobes at Conservapedia but I never thought they'd go as far as to support the death penalty for it. Plus, it is overwhelmingly stupid that they think Uganda's high fertility is due to "machismo" and not the fact that it has one of the highest infant mortality rates on Earth, while Denmark and Sweden have amongst the lowest.

A user (GSalmeron) asks Ken how is his plan to exterminate gays any different than what the Nazi's did against Jews and gays, and Ken starts accusing the user of being a liberal homo, and refuses to answer the questions. Geez, how can someone even "think" this way?! Loro-rojo (talk) 01:28, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

This really happened, or, Everything I know about pro football, I learned from Andy Schlafly.[edit]

So I've been in NY for a little while for work-related stuff. I was at the laundromat the other day, and the guy using the machine beside mine looked up from his paper and said something like, "man, the Giants are really sucking this year, huh?" Now, I don't really follow sports all that closely anymore, and I haven't watched an NFL game in several years--but doing laundry is boring, so I figured a little conversation would help pass the time. So I said to the guy: "Never mind that. How about the Jets? I can't believe how they're not playing Tebow just because of his conservative views on abortion. They'd rather lose than give a conservative Christian a chance to excel. Typical liberals." The guy just gave me a confused look and went back to reading his paper.

By the way, how are a Tebow-less Broncos doing this year? --PsyGremlin말하십시오 07:09, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
I just looked it up. I know nothing of American football, nor what a power ranking is, but I know it must be bad for Timmy Tebow when the Broncos are at number 8 and the Jets are at number 28. Only reason I give two shits for the Broncos is becauise of South Park. --جئت ورأيت أنا القرف gross, isn't it? 08:58, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Power rankings are a (subjective) ranking of where each team falls in the league. Since American Football doesn't have a point system (like futball), it's very hard to see exactly how the teams stack up against each other. Going strictly by record, The Jests are getting hammered. They're 4 and 6, currently sitting in second place in the division (only because their competition, which sadly includes my Miami Dolphins, suck). The Broncos meantime are 7 and 3, first in their division and Manning, Tebow's replacement, is in talks for MVP this season. I will say though, part of me wants NY to play Tebow. He sucks. Big time. If he were played, he'd get destroyed and then I'd love to see Andy rationalize his way around it. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 09:30, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Easily. "Outspoken conservative Christian thrown to the lions. By deliberately not playing Tim Tebow, liberal Democrat supporters of the NY Jets, set Tim Tebow up to fail, by denying him valuable game time and then expecting him to perform miracles, when their liberal policies had failed. The fact that he only threw 158 yards, instead of his God-given 316 yards, if proof of this." --PsyGremlinParlez! 09:35, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

To answer Psy's question, the Broncos are 7-3, which is a pretty solid record within itself. More importantly they have a three game lead in their division with six games left; so it is very likely "overrated sports star" Manning will have the Broncos in the playoffs as the division champs for the AFC West. This of course is why neither Manning or the Broncos are mentioned in any way by Andy. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:32, 19 November 2012 (UTC)

Andy's hidden changes and love for Justin Bieber[edit]

Ken recently added a long screed on how a particular blog page has received 250,000 hits. Andy edited the MPR entry (along with a few others) with the excuse that he wanted to keep recent news items visible. I notice now that Andy's edit of Ken's post is missing from recent changes.

At that time you only needed 2 people to nominate you so one of my mates decided to run as well and was given a small sum for campaigning expenses which was dutifully imbibed by a small group of us in the students' bar.

Early voting[edit]

I know this Andy's new thing, but what is he gibbering about?img

It is a liberal gimmick that has the effect of partially disenfranchising the value of informed votes on Election Day.

Is he saying that people who vote early aren't informed? That early voting shouldn't be allowed, because liberals use it and screw democracy? Or is his just foaming at the mouth again? --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 20:22, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

There's actually a kernel of truth to the idea that early voting is tied to how informed an electorate is. One election post-mortem I read described how the Obama camp had a collective shit fit after the first debate because some people already had their early ballots in hand on the night that their candidate turned in a shitty debate performance in Denver--they were worried that people might cast their votes that night/the next day based on that debate, giving Obama no time to do any damage control/turn it back around. Imagine how you might feel if you cast your ballot two weeks before the election, and the next day your candidate makes a sudden turnaround on an issue you care deeply about, or just starts foaming at the mouth and goes off the deep end. You can't take it back. While I'm largely in favuur of early voting and giving every person as much of a chance to cast a vote as possible, one of the risks is that not everyone is casting a ballot with the same amount of information on each candidate-every day produces new statements by and the potential for new discoveries about the candidates. 64.134.175.71 (talk) 20:36, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

IIRC Iduan is not religious but like many people in the early days of CP tried to play the game of being promoted to sysop when, despite Andy's insistence of CP being a meritocracy, it was only given to his trusted homeskolars. When they lost interest he had to bring in outsiders so that by and large the more that you were like one of the current goon squad then the better your chances of success. Iduan got screwed when (apparently) someone from his school posted something offensive using his account. That set him back a while but even after all this time he obviously still wants to get that sysopship, so sees being a sycophantic thuggish asshole as his best chance as trying the fair, hard-working, wiki-gnome route failed.

Andy doesn't actually watch football[edit]

Apparently. The commentary on the game was filled with mentions of Tebow not being an option due to a rib injury. And I would be surprised to find an article that didn't mention it. I guess it's another case of low reading comprehension. Of course, the possibility that Andy is just being dishonest is ever present. And I can't wait to see him shift the blame if Tebow ever plays. The Jet's liberal offensive line would rather let Tebow get sacked... Occasionaluse (talk) 18:02, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

I watched that game. The Jet fans did start to chant "Tebow, Tebow" until the last two minutes of the game when absolutely nothing could be done to change the Jets' fortune given they would need four touchdowns plus two point conversions to win. The audience didn't then empty of because Tebow wasn't placed on the field, they had begun to file out long before when it became obvious who was going to win the game. Besides, Sanchez (the Jets quarterback) did pretty well 26 completions for 36 attempts for 301 yards; 1 TD 1 INT; overall rating: 94.8. What killed the Jets was receivers dropping balls and fumbles, and the Jets' defense not applying any pressure, Tebow would have made no difference there, the whole team is just outclassed. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:07, 23 November 2012 (UTC)

Quick question about the red telephone, if it is forbidden to mention or try to engage with RationalWiki at CP, what excuse has Andy given for not nuking Ken? in fact does andy even know about the Red Telephone, and if so has he ever said anything about it? I know this is fairly minor inconsistancies in the midst of ultimate bugfuck insanity, but it has been bugging me. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 22:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
Andy is remarkably hypocritical and inconsistently enforces the rules about people he considers "valuable". This has been well known for a while. After all, User:Conservative should just delete his account and recreate it with his real name and initial (it would take about 5 minutes, Andy could restate all his rights, he would lose his edit count but vanity isn't a Christian virtue and his work would remain there).

Sasayaki, this gets even sillier when you remember that CP has the ability to rename accounts. Ken just has to supply a name, and Andy can move everything over to the new name with a few clicks.

Another Andy insight[edit]

Why are abortions down?img Because a lot of the folks who would've had abortions don't like Obama, because he's in favor of legalized abortions. So, out of spite, they decided to carry the fetus to term. That's why. It's all because people hate Obama (who was, of course, just re-elected, but that's due to liberal cheats like early voting). Which suggests, of course, that a committed pro-life advocate should be voting for hated pro-choicers like Clinton and Obama. Because it saves babies. Don't you want to save babies?

I'll answer that as an American. Thanksgiving is considered a national holiday here and not a religious holiday, the best example of the latter would be Easter and Good Friday. Even Christmas isn't viewed as entirely as a religious holiday but more of the biggest national one (truthfully seen as an international holiday).

Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 23:01, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
Only real reason I could see Andy grousing about people shopping on Thanksgiving (something I don't recall him doing before actually) is because a strong Black Friday showing would suggest an economic upswing and that is something he definitely doesn't want to see while Obama's in the big chair. Pretty sure if it were Romney the one on his way to the Oval Office right now Andy would be wanking like high school sophomore during a field trip to the Playboy mansion about how "Real Americans" were out in force helping Mitt turn the economy around and not glutting themselves like those lazy, unpatriotic, overweight and godless liberals.

You don't have to lecture me on who might use a particular toy. But seriously? Someone is referring to a buttplug in conjunction with insulting Ken and it's not meant to invoke homosexuality? I know you're a relative newbie here, but that'ts absolutely ridiculous. Theory of Practice Still tryin' to figure it all out. 02:38, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
No, i don't think its meant to invoke homosexuality. Homosexuality is sexual attraction/activity with someone of the same gender, and from a cultural standpoint I am not aware that the Buttplug is a foundation stone of gay subculture. I thought it was meant to invoke him self-pleasuring on his own with it while thinking of how he crushed evolution this week. A butt plug is just a sex toy, one that can literally be used on everyone which makes it pretty much Unisex. And I was not lecturing you, just chiming in my opinion (as worthless and unimportant as the opinion of a "newbie" clearly is) that you should not call someone a homophobic asshole for the crime of mentioning a sex toy. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 02:45, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
Again, I know how buttplugs work, so save yourself the keystrokes. Anal sex, whether by human or artificial means, is a common touchstone for how straights characterize gay sexuality. Seeing as User:Conservative's pet topics were nowhere part of the thread, and this was thus a random shot at him, and seeing a there have been literally hundreds and hundreds of random shots of a homophobic nature thrown his way from this page, it's a pretty safe bet to see the above comment as one of them. Theory of Practice Still tryin' to figure it all out. 02:52, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
Wait, are you pulling the "only gays have anal sex" thing on me? I believe it is pretty well known, especially on more progressive sites like this that its not just gay people who have anal sex, which is entirely besides the point because using a butt plug is not anal sex, it is masturbation. At worst Fergus accused Ken of masturbating to his own work, which you have decided was homophobic because said masturbation involved the anus. You linked it to being gay, not Fergus. And as for literally "hundreds and hundreds" of homophobic insults, what I am assuming is that you are referring to posts speculating that Ken/Andy are gay or have some gay urges, and this is almost always meant as an insult to their fundie/homophobic hatred of all things they think are gay rather than saying being gay is bad and gays should feel bad. Personally I don't particularly care for those posts too as they sometimes blur the line between anti homophobe and anti homosexual, but they don't give you the right to condemn people as homophobic assholes because they mention something YOU think is intrinsically gay Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 03:04, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
You're an idiot, or functionally illiterate, or a troll. Probably all three. I did not say "only gays have anal sex" or anything remotely approaching that.

How cute, a schalfly style tantrum topped off with declaring me a troll because I dare disagree with you. Oh the irony. You were the one who claimed using buttplugs was synomynous with homosexual anal sex, despite having nothing but your own preconceptions to back you up. You tried to go on a self righteous rant at someone purely because they mentioned something YOU associate with being gay, despite it being neither a) solely used by gays or b) a significant part of gay culture or c) something widely associated with gays, and then you decided to go all schlafly with me when I questioned you.

An ad hom attack isn't the same as "crass insult". Scarlet A.pngmoralModerator 11:28, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
I'd like to make two points. First, Armondikov is right, of course, that calling someone an idiot is not, by itself, sufficient for an ad hominem (that is, for the logical fallacy, which is what ad hom usually means). Secondly, and I can't believe it's come to this, but I want to point out that Fergus's comment was not about Ken using buttplugs, but about Andy being upset that he was unable to purchase a Ken DeMyer-shaped butt plug. Ain't no fucking way that this was not a disparaging reference to homosexuality. (Even if it had been about Ken's use of butt-plugs, it defies all common sense to pretend that you are shocked, shocked! that anyone would think that this is a reference to homosexual behavior.)
For fuck's sake, if anyone was interested in the actual intention of the reference, they would have asked Fergus what he meant.
But no one is really interested. We all know that this was at heart a reference to homosexuality and a few of us are simply desperate to pretend otherwise, because (I guess) we like making faggot jokes at CP's expense. Phiwum (talk) 20:41, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
Or maybe some of us take issue with hurling around accusations of people being "homophobic assholes" because they reference a sex toy. Also I was not "shocked! shocked!" that ToP equates Buttplugs with homosexuality, but that he thinks it gives him the right to act like a arsehole. Given however that you seem to indeed be correct about the remark pertaining to Andy rather than Ken (which I originally thought, given that I interpreted "Ken shaped" as being...nevermind) and that I lost all interest in trying to argue at about the time ToP started acting like Aschlafly, Im more than willing to end it and have the arguement nuked. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 21:50, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
For what it's worth, I don't think most folk around here making faggot jokes are homophobes (a term I loathe) or even fundamentally biased against homosexuality, but instead make these jokes because they think that they are insulting to CP folks.

However some of my best friends are chutney ferrets and rug munchers, my favourite bar is called Liberty and all its patrons except me are as queer as a bottle of chips, and my favourite US city is San Francisco.

Honestly, this is just too silly for words.

Squeezing availability "helps" too. Contrast the experience on mainland Britain with that on the island of Ireland. Obviously Ireland has lower abortion rates, because abortion is illegal there and so if you're not wealthy there's a considerable barrier to getting an abortion (if you have money obviously you take a holiday to the mainland and then magically come back not pregnant). 82.69.171.94 (talk) 10:41, 25 November 2012 (UTC)

Andy's cousin[edit]

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/11/24/war-on-men/ - this article has been making the rounds on the internet. It includes:

"The so-called rise of women has not threatened men. It has pissed them off. It has also undermined their ability to become self-sufficient in the hopes of someday supporting a family. Men want to love women, not compete with them ... The fact is, women need men’s linear career goals – they need men to pick up the slack at the office – in order to live the balanced life they seek."

...It was written by Andy's cousin.--Danielfolsom (talk) 04:47, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

So basically shes telling all women (herself not included of course) that the only way they can get a conservative ubermench who will treat them like the brainless, babymaking nobodies they secretly wish to be, is by getting their collective arses back in the kitchen, making collective sammiches, and to stop pretending they are at all equal to men.

The author, Tim Stanley, argues that the mom-pop-and-2.4-kids nuclear family only predominated in the USA for about 25 years from c.1950 to c.1975 and that conservatives' idea of family values owes much more to nostalgia than to practical realities.

I'm not sure how he backs up that statement...A Google search returned only one interesting graduate thesis on the study, which is localized. A Washington Post infographic (which, as typical, had barely any information), suggested that more men play the lottery than women...and yet, women more than men voted for Obama....
Furthermore, what does he have to say about the winners, who appear to run the gamut of lives and livelihoods? Even Faux News loves to bag on those who won...Plus, given that almost EVERYONE who plays the lottery loses, is he saying that ONLY Obama supporters play the lottery (and those very few Obama detractors who choose to play always win)?

To be honest, it strikes me as utterly plausible that more Obama supporters play the lottery than Romney supporters.

Karajou, since you apparently read this site, I hope you're getting this message. I can understand your opposition to gay marriage, and your feelings that the movement is propagated through bullying, deceit, and manipulation of the media. I do not agree with this mentality, but I can understand it. Many of the people on here feel the same way about conservative movements. But Karajou, quite frankly, your behavior here is not in line with Christian behavior. Your argument is essentially one that impugns liberals for encouraging people to behave in ways that upset tyrannical governments. If you are oppressed, you argue, it is simply because you fail to submit to the oppressor. This is the equivalent of blaming Jesus for the deaths of his followers at the hands of the Romans. You may believe that homosexuality is sinful, but the Neros of old themselves believed that Christianity was wrong. You are encouraging the persecution of a group of people, and blaming them for the persecutions they face. It's just wrong. And although you say that Conservapedia does not endorse the execution of homosexuals, your very own User:Conservative responded to an inquiry about whether or not gay people should be executed by telling the person asking the question that homosexuals could "turn or burn." Not a single sysop spoke up to clarify that this was not Conservapedia's position. No one reprimanded User: Conservative. No one took down the jubilant headlines praising the bill. What are we supposed to take home from this, Karajou?WilliamR (talk) 02:46, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
I wanna red telephone to him, too! Karajou: you call those who want to imprison and execute homosexuals "liberals", because "it's the liberals doing it" (because hey, no true scotsman right?), yet two of your fellow sysops have shown that much disdain for homosexuality already. EdPoor said they should be imprisoned, and the whole she-bang was brought up because your buddy Conservative made a post praising it on the main page. You defended him with your "this discussion is over" bullying on the talkpage, thus you're defending his views of gay "turn or burn" statement and ideology. Your post about some douchebag making some tweet... guess what, we don't control twitter. Would've been different if he had been on RW, but in your case, you had and still have the power to confront Ed and Conservative. By not doing so, you're condoning them. By your own definition, you're a liberal by association. I know, you're too much of a coward to respond without force of impunity, but take a step back: by not doing anything about it/them, CP has become and will forever be a joke on the internet, and you helped that happen.

I'm not saying that she isn't racist and I'm not even saying that her use of "spade" wasn't racially motivated (consciously or otherwise), but it really isn't an open and shut case. I use the phrase "call a spade a spade" myself, and I can imagine situations where it can be interpreted as a slur (as in this case). I just don't think we can conclude that she used that phrase because she's a racist. (She's despicable for enough reasons that we might as well tread carefully here.)

It makes grammatical sense. Consider the phrase, "To call a spade a 'spade'". The first occurrence of spade refers to a thing (namely, a thing which is a spade). The second occurrence refers to a term (the term "spade"). Frankly, I think her punctuation makes more sense than leaving the second occurrence without quotation marks, so, again, this is not evidence that she intended any racial slur. Phiwum (talk) 19:21, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
I might theoretically agree, except that quoting the second spade is not common usage and to be totally unaware of the problems connected with usage of the phrase when referencing an African-American, seems incredibly thoughtless. Knowing the way that these people continually emphasise the Hussein part of Obama's name, I have no doubt that she knew exactly what she was writing.

Yes, well, let's talk about what's undeniable: their stupidity. (By the way, Terry never said that he would force others to be in his weird fantasy militia, either. Another misinterpretation, I think.) Let's assume the best of these people and point out that, even under this assumption, they are remarkably stupid, spouting false claims and throwing tantrums. Let's not bother to go beyond the most charitable interpretation of what they write, because that's enough to show that they are not worth listening to. Phiwum (talk) 18:51, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
Technically he didn't say he would conscript people, but he said: "then this neighborhood will have a well-regulated militia, with, as like as not, myself in command." So he definitely said he'd be in charge, and that the militia would exist, and he's made it clear that it would be substantial in size (big enough to send scouting parties). It's not much of a stretch at all to suppose that membership in this vast body will not be voluntary (or essentially forced when the alternative is "be deprived of vital supplies and cooperation"). If you want to use the fruits of Terry's hypothetical generator in his fantasy apocalyptic scenario, you have to swear fealty to him. --Sasayaki (talk) 21:35, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

Does "temlakos" mean anything?[edit]

After scrolling through CNAV for a couple of minutes and reading the page we have on TerryH, I became curious. "temlakos" sounds vaguely Greek to me, with the caveat that I know absolutely nothing about the Greek language, so I typed it into google translate. "temlakos" doesn't return anything, but "tem lak os" returns "hairspray pc os" which simply must mean something, right? άλφαΤαλκ 21:48, 28 November 2012 (UTC)

And the milk of their mothers flowing from their breasts shall congeal, and from it shall come beasts devouring flesh, which shall come forth and turn and torment them for ever with their husbands, because they forsook the commandments of God and slew their children.

So lets add up what we know about hurly. His alias is an angel who tortures people he does not like, he is disturbingly obsessed with both asserting his power over others in any way he can, to the point of masturbatory (yet detailed) plans on forming his own personal army and becoming essentially a warlord if he is ever given the chance and were local authorities unable to stop him, he believes that anyone who disagrees with him or mocks him is an arch enemy of both god and the entire nation, and thus god will punish them, and he is fervent in believing the apocalypse is nigh and that he will be one of the leaders of the forces of "good" (more conjecture here, given he seems to think he will have a high ranking role in any militia/secession/resistance).

A modest proposal[edit]

I think the time has come when it is clear that ken has absolutely nothing new to surprise or annoy us, and far from the hilariously idiotic lunatic he was once seen as, it has become clear he is just a desperately lonely and angry little man with extreme mental illness and no life outside his delusions. Thus I think it would be in prudent at this point to simply have a policy of utterly ignoring him and his actions, ignoring the "Red Telephone" messages, and refusing to comment on his antics and attempts to get our (since we are the ole audience he has now) attention, and simply turning our attentions to other members of the site for our giggles. Ken's presence on CP has been dependant on us for the past half decade to satisfy his delusion of being in a "heroic fight against the forces of atheism", and If we stave him of this he will have no motivation to remain on CP. I am aware this proposal is almost certainly not going to be adopted or accepted, but I do believe we should reconsider our own continued fixation with him Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 17:34, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

This proposal has been made several times in the past, and has always failed. The only way to make it stick would be to remove any posting that is User: Conservative related.

Eh, Kendoll has been writing crap on the internet long before CP existed, and he'll probably go on doing it long after it sinks back down in to the swamp from whence it came.

But there is an ethical issue at play. Most regulars here have acknowledged that they believe that the man is mentally ill.

Theory of Practice Still tryin' to figure it all out. 18:01, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
You could make the same argument about anybody at CP. Especially Terry, who I suspect is also severely mentally ill. Hell, would a nice guy point and laugh at anybody at all? The way I see it, as long as they're on the internet broadcasting their silly views to world, the world has the right to laugh at them.

I kind of think that there comes a point where you have to "pay like unto like". If it was just Ken, Andy, Terry, etc... they wouldn't have any influence at all and really, the existence of a wiki about them would be more underground, like the Christian Weston Chandler community. As it stands, though, there are people who believe this crap. Andy himself is actually very well connected, politically. This affects the United States which has a global impact on all of us. I think it's important that, when presented with extreme viewpoints like Conservapedia (where, for the vast majority of the western world, there literally isn't a term for someone this right wing except 'nutjob'), we have someone on the sidelines going "Nuh-huh." Because, well, if Andy/Terry/Ken/etc had any power at all, they would make life extremely difficult for the vast majority of people. They would not be kind to us, and Linchon said, "To test a man's character, give him power." Terry's little... "in the event of a natural disaster, everyone would be in my militia under my command, like it or not" post really showed his colours on that one. So I have no qualms about laughing at them, manically if necessary, because they are dickheads. That's my two cents. --Sasayaki (talk) 19:13, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
In Terry's undeserved defense, he said "like as not", meaning "very probably" rather than "like it or not". It's still a bit on the Napoleon side of loony to assume that he's the natural choice for militia leader (or an outright insult to his neighbours, guess he doesn't like them) but not so confrontational. --Kels (talk) 22:16, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
"Andy himself is actually very well connected, politically" PHHAHAHAHAHAAAHHAHAHAHAHAH.... oh christ thats funny. It was a good post but that line killed me. Andy has zero connections politically, the one time he got any attention outa the "fundiemocking" internet subculture was when he rewrote the bible, and he was universally rejected by the farright wing for that. The only "connection" he has is his mother, and from all appearances she is too ashamed of him to try and "connect" him with anyone else, and who herself is connected only to the more loathsomely wingnutty right wingers (and even with them she is the definition of a "has been").
As for continuing mocking Conservapedia and the scumbags who are not kidding about what they write there, I am all for it. I think that Ken should be ignored because he has grown excruciatingly boring and repetitive at this point. And I entirely agree with your point that Andy and co would likely do their darndest to make everyone they see as "liberal" suffer if they got any real power, but the fact is even combined they have about as much political power as radical feminist lesbians do in Saudi Arabia. Personally on this front I believe Terry should be most monitored for this since I think he is the likeliest to snap and try to start some violent insurrection should he get the chance, but even he is nothing but am impotent blogger who at most will be arrested by the FBI long before he becomes a danger (also can you link me to his "forcibly conscript everyone into my militia" comment, I could do with a larf).

Fair enough, point well made, I thought his influence was greater than it really was. Cool. And... yes. I live in a natural disaster prone area (north Australia, we get cyclones). The Conservative idea of survival is some kind of Mad Max fantasy where Terry will cruise around in post-apocalyptic US with a shotgun, raybands and leather pants (there's a mental image I didn't need), but the reality is when these things strike the best thing to do is pool and share resources (but make sure you're not making yourself another victim by giving away essentials), help others (again, but making sure you're not going to injure yourself and contribute to the problem), keep calm and try to secure a source of fresh water.

EC

I know we're veering wildly offtopic here, but I read some of the comments in that post I'd missed before. Holy dog shit. Terry: "Now in case you want to suggest that maybe those signals are unreliable, and the only reliable intelligence comes from direct scouting: if I sent any scouts into “downtown,” the police might misread their intent and pick them up on suspicion of attempted sabotage. That sort of thing would be bad for morale." My "Mad Max fantasy" was just a little stab, but it now seems frighteningly accurate. He really thinks he will be some kind of military commander with a small army at his disposal, large enough to send out "scouts" and with the main effect of losing a few people to be "bad for morale". Does he think his entire suburb will rally to him? The entire city? Throw in a healthy dose of "The cops/lawful authority are only out to hinder me" and you have a truly mad view of what it's like to survive in a disaster. His number one, overriding concern throughout the whole thing is how to consolidate his own power. --Sasayaki (talk) 21:29, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
His delusions of grandeur luckily are self defeating. While he may see himself as some heroic and badass revolutionary leader with the power of god behind him, the rest of the world (including his neighbours presumably) know him as a hateful, unhinged little prick with a napoleon complex. In the event of some disaster situation, when he tries to conscript a militia by either blackmailing them with his hypothetical generator, or simply threatening them, he will be knocked out and left tied up in a wardrobe while his neighbors wait for the police to take him away.

I didn't read the comments myself because I'm not currently suicidal and don't wish to be, but doesn't the fact that the police are in a good enough state to arrest/detain for questioning a group of people nullify the need for his "survive the disaster" militia in the first place?

It doesn't make sense on any level because Terry didn't think it through any further than "I want to boss people around with the threat of force, and also have all the stuff so people come crawling to me and will do what I say." In fact, let's just cut it down to "I want to boss people around with guns". Although we can probably just say "I wanna be the boss". --Sasayaki (talk) 23:45, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
