Topic[edit]

Presumably a libertarian would have supported Gary Johnson, at least to Donald Trump, the latter wanting to inhibit free trade, cut down immigration, strengthen anti-defamation laws, torture, and admires Putin. True, she is surrounded by alt-right drones, ready to defend her, but let's call bullshit for what it is: her candidacy notwithstanding, she's not really a libertarian,199.119.233.182 (talk) 05:25, 18 March 2017 (UTC)

Category:Racists[edit]

I listed Lauren Southern in Category:Racists and yet my edit was reverted. I would strongly contend that Southern most certainly is a racist considering the fact that she defended Richard Spencer by saying that he wasn't a white supremacist but that he was a white nationalist, thus implying that white nationalism is wholly different from white supremacy and that, at least in Southern's eyes, to be a white nationalist that wants a "white ethno-state" is perfectly fine. Furthermore, if Lauren Southern is not a racist, how would you explain videos like these? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1Js8wntdk4&t=14s, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTDmsmN43NA. For more context,"The Great Replacement" is a theory espoused by people like xenophobic writer Renaud Camus, which The Local.fr describes as the idea of France's "white, Christian population being overtaken by foreign-born Muslims". Furthermore, "The Great Replacement" theory has also been championed by the staff at American Renaissance, a monthly online white supremacist rag. Peadar237 (talk) 02:38, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Perhaps, she's more of a racialist than an outright racist. She certainly is a white nationalist, even if she doesn't have the Proverbial balls to admit it. Levi Ackerman (talk) 09:02, 25 July 2017 (UTC)
She wants to defend Europe from an invasion of migrant hordes by sinking boats of refugees. I don't think her racism, even if were supposedly on the benevolent racism spectrum as it were (and there is NO way I am even suggesting that as a possibility, just using it as a hypothetical), can be disputed.

"She CAN'T be racist! She hangs out with part-Korean (as he frequently reminds us) Tim Pool and "young melanin-abled", political illiterate, and all round dumbass, "That Guy T"!" (Please, please, please, don't even create an article on these two!)Levi Ackerman (talk) 10:44, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
Heh, do I even want to know? Or is this a case of ignorance is bliss? I don't even feel like doing Google-fu to find out. James Earl Cash (talk) 18:46, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Rational[edit]

Is it really rational to call people insane? 203.214.92.139 (talk) 17:52, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

"But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink! Contrary to the name, this is a snarky skeptic wiki, we are not writing from a neutral point of view. @203.214.92.139ClickerClock (talk) 03:21, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Asked[edit]

In regards to the Lauren Southern page, someone has already asked the question in August and Hasn't been replied to. It isn't rational to call someone insane without proof its just an insult. This is "rational wiki" not some opinion piece...— Unsigned, by: 203.214.92.139 / talk / contribs

@ClickerClock that's a copout. αδελφός ΓυζζγςατΡοτατο (talk/stalk) 03:24, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Yawn. Insanity is a cheap insult. I prefer white nationalist or racist. @203.214.92.139ClickerClock (talk) 03:27, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

Yeah if it can be proven go ahead with calling them white nationalist or racist. Again I don't like her, just don't think the insanity comment was appropriate. Thankyou both! - Someone just changed it back.... — Unsigned, by: 220.239.213.246 / talk / contribs

"She also believes that the vast majority of Muslim men, both in the Middle East and the west, both support and commit violence against women." Do you have a source for this claim? CowHouse (talk) 03:50, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
@220.239.213.246 the insane comment should be gone. You were correct. —ClickerClock (talk) 04:11, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
@ClickerClock We still don't have a source that she ever made the claim you included in this edit. You could be addressing something she never even said for all we know. Until its sourced, it doesn't belong on the page. CowHouse (talk) 04:24, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Actually the claim was made by the BoN which is why I added a citation needed. Hey @220.239.213.246 mind providing a link to the video where she says that + timestamp? —ClickerClock (talk) 04:40, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
I didn't change anything but the suckerpunch bit under the pic and the insanity comment. I did accidently edit the edit Fluff made but I reverted it back afterwards. 220.239.213.246 (talk) 05:00, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Actually it was @120.149.64.212. Proof here. Much hey 120 BoN, provide the citation. —ClickerClock (talk) 05:04, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
If you look at the contributions from 120.149.64.212, all of the edits have been trolling. Unless you strongly object, I don't see why we should assume otherwise for the claim added on this page. CowHouse (talk) 05:10, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
Remove away. —ClickerClock (talk) 05:14, 25 October 2017 (UTC)

You left out the most ironic part.[edit]

Like Brittany Pettibone, and Tara McCarthy, this Nazi barbie has nearly exclusively dated black men and arabs. Why is no one calling them out on their hypocrisy? They're calling for ethnic cleansing during their day job yet riding that BBC all night long, call them fuckers out!— Unsigned, by: 121.210.33.50 / talk 01:58, 3 January 2018‎

BBC is a racist myth. A 2004 study reported that "there is no scientific background to support the alleged ‘oversized’ penis in black people". (Mondaini, Nicola; Gontero, Paolo (2007). "Idiopathic short penis: myth or reality?". British Journal of Urology. 95 (1): 8–9.) 117.20.41.10 (talk) 02:35, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
The OP's other point seemed to be wrong too. While it appears to be true that Southern had one or more Middle Eastern or black boyfriends in her college days or so (at least one who voted for Trump), by 2018 it seems she had moved on to dating alt-right or straight up Nazis such as men who refused to eat ketchup because it was Chinese and talked about how Southern need to start pumping out babies while simultaneously relying on her for financial support such as paying said ketchup free (but not read sauce which tastes non European free) meal [1]. The alt-right and Nazi male culture seems to be as toxic with the way they treat women even their star women as you would expect that you almost feel sorry for her. When the stuff the OP talked about came out, some people suggested maybe her experience turned her off such men, but it's very hard to imagine it was worse than what she was experiencing in 2018, so it's no wonder she might have preferred to go back to her college dating days although she ended up marrying someone part Asian which I think to mean East or maybe South-East Asian. Nil Einne (talk) 18:56, 22 May 2021 (UTC)
I realise my comment above about "almost feel sorry" may be misunderstood. No one deserves to experience what she experienced when she was surrounding herself with alt-rights and Nazis, that wasn't what I was suggesting. P.S. the ketchup thin is the sort of thing you'll normally think is simply trolling to try and mock a journalist, but have read that article and looked into the guy a bit the scary thing is I don't think it was.
