Jr.: Hey look, ma! Tumblr Libertarians! Oh…never mind. It’s just those Westboro people again.
Mom: Don’t worry, Jr. I know it’s hard to tell them apart sometimes.
You’re doing exactly what you scream at liberals for doing: unnecessary, stupid, and illogical mudslinging. And then you turn around and do the exact same thing to libertarians - who consistently have leaned Republican?
What are you thinking? Why in the world would you want to piss off - for no reason - a critical swing block that’s been going GOP recently?
Insinuating that libertarians are like people from the Westboro Baptist Church is insulting, disrespectful, slimy, and low.
In what way am I like the Westboro Baptist Church? Enlighten me.
perhaps the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen on tumblr. too bad it had to come from talkstraight; that warranted an unfollow.
I think he was referencing how some libertarians on Tumblr tend to blame military members for their service in the wars they may or may not agree with. You can be anti-war all you want, but blaming the individual military members for their service is ridiculous. Give the men and women who have served your respect instead of your pity, they don’t want your pity and they aren’t pitiful.
That’s what I thought when I saw it. Having followed him for months, I can tell when he’s making a joke - but a joke with a point.
Yes, People, it was a joke and specifically directed towards the ‘anti-military, terrorists exist because we have bases in other countries’ Tumblr Libertarians I have been blessed with hearing from recently and over the last year or so I have been on Tumblr-not all Libertarians in general and most normal Libertarians would understand that.
But, hey, if this struck such a strong cord that you became so offended by it that you decide to unfollow me-go for it. I don’t do this so I can stroke myself over how many followers I have anyway. And maybe you should self-reflect and ask why you got so offended by it in the first place.
