Celebrity Deaths


#241

I’m not sad he passed, but I’m not really glad, either. I simply don’t put enough thought towards him to have any sort of emotional response to the news. Sympathy for his family, maybe, but that’s just a case of normal human empathy that you’d feel for anyone, for him, nowt.

Hats off to acknowledging real war heroes


#243

You’re not a war hero if you never go to war. A real war hero would be Warrant Officer Hugh Thompson, who stopped the massacre at My Lai. A real war hero would be Captain Sir Edward Hulse, who initiated one of the Christmas Truces. A real war hero would be any one who lead the French mutiny in 1917.

So what? Who could even begin to care? It certainly isn’t me


#245

Yes yes you’re an edgy leftist pacifist, we get it.


#246

I doubt he’s a leftist.


#247

For this guy. I honestly don’t know how I feel. I imagine I’ll wait and see how he’s remembered by history (as well as anyone can in one lifetime anyway)

One thing I can say, is I don’t at all mind people criticizing him today. Screw respect for the dead as a concept in general. And further:

And this should help on the whole “Leftist” score


#249

Being this vehement about the death of a right leaning politician makes me think otherwise.


#250

I think it’s because he knows we’ll react to it. Not because he actually believes it.


#251

Oh shit, I just remembered who doublegomez is! He’s the guy Churba goes off on whenever they are in the same thread. Now I wanna go find his last rant and post from it.

I spent the effort so you don’t have to


#252

Yeah, confirmed Pharisee.


#253

Please do, I’m curious.


#254

A red banner == left :thinking:


#255

Oh I remember this now.


#256

OK now, to be fair

#257

Touché


#258

Of all the ways to accuse some of purity you had to use that one? Even for boring Christian history nerds that would be lame.


#259

You clearly don’t know what a Pharisee is if you think it’s an insult to your purity.

EDIT: to be clear, I would’ve called you a troll, but I didn’t want to disservice the FRCF’s one true troll, Nineless.

It’s Lizi’s way of saying fuck you
