    One is dehumanizing, the others are not.

    Personally, I think Tuckerfan took it way too far this time.

    The guy has repeatedly been denouncing extremist groups for months and months, he calls himself a moderate libertarian but also a Trump supporter... So what does he advocate which is extremist much less Nazi like? He is certainly very conservative but the rhetoric about hom being a Nazi seems completely unfounded. What evidence am I missing because right now it really does look like "you're on the other side so I will declare you to be a dpuble secret Nazi" and that is some cowardly bull shit.

    Comparing someone to an inanimate object, a fuck stick, is not dehumanizing? Get your head out of your ass! :lol:

    With even less self awareness than just about any animal.

    Dig deeper, man. Just keep on digging.

    Which completely misses my point: Calling someone a fuckstick, or a dick, isn't dehumanizing. It's just insulting.

    You dick.

    That's an insulting insinuation.


    Ok, serious answer. No, not all insults are meant to dehumanizing. I argue that insults to one's character or to one's family largely fall into this category.

    That you have had to twist yourself into a pretzel to justify your absurd position says it all. All insults are dehumanizing and your exactly the same as who you claim to hate. Now all you have is semantic games that deserve nothing but to be laughed at.

    But, hey, the contortions help you feel better about yourself and that is your real goal, isn't it? Deep down, you know what contradictory and illogical weak sauce you are serving even if you can't bring yourself to admit it in public.

    Calling a racist a racist isn't even an insult. It's an accurate observation. This is the same old John Castle "tolerate my intolerance! :weep: " crap.

    Not even remotely! The claim made was one insult was some how "dehumanizing" yet magically the other insults he used some how weren't equally dehumanizing. I am not asking anyone to tolerate anything, you stupid fuckstick, I am pointing out a glaring logical inconsistency which invalidates the argument he made, you muppet.

    Calling someone a muppet is dehumanizing. :(

    It is almost as if most (if not all) insults are meant to degrade and dehumabize. :(
