I got a laugh out of being called a goat fucking puppy strangler. I am surprised that this kind of thing is allowed on this board but I guess that is what democracy looks like in Madison. Whatever floats your boats.
But PJ, calling me a "conservative" is going waaaaay over the line. I would appreciate a retraction.
Liberal, libertarian, minarchist etc I am fine with and will embrace. Emphatically not conservative.
To the extent that the word conservative actually means something, I oppose and condemn it as well as most who identify themselves as conservatives. I have done so consistently for 25 years or more. In most cases, especially in groups like these, it seems more like an epithet than a meaningful word. "Conservative" to many here, including you PJ, seems to be a word to use against anyone who disagrees with your politics.
I don't even disagree with your politics, at least in the short term. I think it is a necessary phase we need to go through to get back to America and the Constitution.
So please, PJ, retract and apologize.
