Nihilist of the Day: Male Rape

Here is a must read post I wrote at American Nihilist. It is in honor of Obama's newest attempt to destroy the fabric of society: Male Rape. 

And remember, American Nihilist is the go to blog for anyone who's visited Obama's luxurious re-education resorts. It's not a marching order if you didn't read it at American Nihilist. Life is Nihilism. Obama is life.


Excerpt:

Since the beginning of time, the sole purpose of the human race was to protect Yahweh's greatest gift to man: The Female Vagina.  This is because female vaginas help God help us to procreate and expand upon his creation, plus they're very very sexy.  But thanks to the hard work of Commander Supreme Barack Sidney Obama and you, his loyal minions, the whole rape ballgame's gone topsy-turvy, where you can't tell the rapists from the victims and everyone will be raped for at least fifteen minutes.  
That's right.  Obama has decreed the new existence of Male Rape.  So strap on your strap-ons and hope you're the one who ends up on top, because it'll sure be a lot more fun than the other way around.

Well, I would read it, but American Nihilist is a hate blog and the proprietor there has sponsored workplace attacks trying to get me fired. That's why I thought you stopped blogging there, that you didn't endorse the hate. But I guess you do after all. I kicked your butt so bad on Jeremiah that you're still smarting. But posting at an anti-Semitic hate site? You're stupid (and bad), but I never that stupid (and bad). Boy was I wrong.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Sorry Donald, but I don't read that blog, didn't know anything about any attacks on you, and frankly, don't really care. You've already proven yourself to be a useless scoundrel with zero intellectual honesty and I lack any sympathy for your situation. You want to make a point of villainizing anyone who disagrees with you, and you have to live with those consequences. Perhaps some day you'll learn to stop making this stuff so personal.

For myself, I just like to use the American Nihilist blog in my own way, as it's great fun to pretend to be a nihilist who hates America. And the reason I stopped posting there is because I had nothing I wanted to say. But in typical Donald Douglas fashion, you somehow imagine this is all about you, so my lack of posting was because I was siding with you and my new post shows that I support the attacks on you. But trust me, I don't give a rat's ass about you whatsoever. Those guys could say anything they want about you and it wouldn't affect me in the least. You made your bed and now you're stuck lying in it.

So you're better off hanging out with those guys. At least they care what you have to say. For myself, I find you incredibly boring and the fact that you're still obsessed with our argument from 2008 just shows how boring you are. You are most assuredly the worst debater I've ever had the pain of dealing with; not because you're so dishonest and insulting, but because you're so damn repetitive and refuse to give up on arguments you already lost.

Faking a victory lap might make your ego feel better, but it only makes you look more ridiculous to the rest of us.

Donald Douglas said...

You're the biggest loser, Biobrain, anonymous coward. And now a supporter of workplace harassment and anti-Jew hatemongers. That's really sick. You should just quit that AmNi attack blog. I thought you at least had a shred --- a freakin' shred --- of decency. But alas, no. FAIL!!

I kicked your butt bad in that debate. But keep telling yourself you won. Maybe you're feel better, hater.

Doctor Biobrain said...

So...because I wrote something at that blog that means I support everything they do, even though I already said I wasn't paying attention to any of this stuff and don't really care? What a weird little man you are.

Again, if you don't want people making this stuff personal, perhaps you should take your own advice and stop making it personal. You never could argue with someone without insulting them, and now act outraged that people would try to hurt you personally. Play with fire, get burned.

And don't you find it odd that you attack me as an "anonymous coward" and then lament how people are punishing you personally because they know who you are? Methinks anonymity ain't such a bad idea after all. Not that that's the reason I post with this name, but still, you've got to admit it's got it's perks.

As for the Wright thing, seriously dude, seeing as how there's approximately eight people left in the country who give a damn about it these days, I'm pretty sure I won that debate.

Donald Douglas said...

Well, I guess my comment from last night didn't go through. Spam? Who knows? The fact is AmNi is hate blog. I've called out Racist Repsac3 for his Jew-bashing support of the anti-Semitic Occupy Wall Street movement and he's got nothing in response: no explanation, no apologies, no remorse. Of course, that's to be expected from an attack blog whose goal is to destroy opponents. I thought you'd quit that blog out of common sense, but instead you're doubling down on the hate and lashing out, blaming the victims who're being harassed and attacked.

That's pretty pathetic, but what I'd expect from a progressive loser who hides behind a pseudonym to attack conservatives.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Look Donald, you've already smeared me so many times that it's absolutely absurd that you're looking to me for sympathy. Hell, you've even accused ME of being an anti-Semite repeatedly, even though I've never said anything remotely anti-Semitic and am part Jewish.

Seriously, you're a joke. A clown. A complete waste of time who is so lacking in self awareness that you proudly smear people for doing things that you yourself continue to do. The fact that you don't see this just confirms what a total joke you are.

And yeah, I *DO* blame you for any attacks being made against you. This is your thing. You're the guy who never saw a debate that you couldn't turn into a personal assault on the person you're debating, and now act outraged that they're doing the same thing to you. And I have little doubt that if you knew who I was personally, you'd try to ruin my career and besmirch my reputation.

And that's what bugs you so much about the fact that you don't know me personally. You want to be able to take the attacks to me and know my name and see what I look like, so you can smear me even more than you already have. And just as you once engaged in a serious breach of etiquette by outing one of the other Nihilists who made the mistake of befriending you, I'm sure you'd do the same to me.

Again, this is the environment you chose to live in. Deal with it. Play with fire, get burned.

Donald Douglas said...

Don't be stupid (I know, that's hard.)

I debate people on the issues, and I'll smack 'em down good like they deserve. I don't attempt to destroy people's livelihoods and I don't threaten people personally. So quit you're pathetic defense of the hate and the attacks. NOTHING compares to what the progs do, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

And you backing it 'till the end just makes you look more stupid than you already are. You've been beaten bad, so the need for vengeance means you've jettisoned any moral code. Being "part Jewish" isn't going to fly. I guess you'd have to be self-hating to be poster at a Jew-bashing racist hate blog like AmNi.

I've shown you guys up for what you are, progressive haters and destroyers. And you're just doubling-down on the hate, cowardly so I might add.

Loser.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Yeah, of course, you'd never try to destroy me. Just like you never insult people or engage in ad hominem attacks. Seriously, you wouldn't know how to make an argument if I fed you one. I know that because I've tried helping you out by giving you a proper argument to make and you ignored it because you don't know the difference between an argument and an insult. And that's why you imagine that Guilt by Association is somehow a worthy debate point.

And where do you get the idea that I've defended anything at American Nihilist? I keep telling you that I don't even read the blog or care what it says. I just like writing nihilist parody and it doesn't make sense to do that at my own blog, so I post it there. Frankly, I've never understood why they bother with you. You're a boring clown who doesn't deserve to have a blog named American Nihilist dedicated to denouncing you. Exposing your hypocrisy, errors, and lies is like trying to count sand. After awhile, you realize it's pointless and just give up.

My point isn't to defend what they're doing. My point is to let you know that it's your own damn fault by making everything so personal. You're like a kid who keeps beating a hornet's nest and then blames the hornets when he gets stung. If you want to be treated with respect, treat others with respect. Insult them constantly and feel the wrath. That's life. It's about time you learned that. Besides, not everyone gets a blog like that devoted to them. You should consider yourself special.

I once made the mistake of thinking you were a rational conservative who could serve as a good debate foe to keep me on my toes, which is why I bothered responding to you that first time. Remember that? Back when you were insulting that girl because she dissed Bush? I quickly learned that you're just a fool looking for a punching bag and keep getting surprised when the bag punches back.

But please go ahead and insult me more. It only proves my point. Play with fire, get burned.

Donald Douglas said...

Right.

Biobrain, honestly, this is not an insult: Your post is utterly depraved and beyond the pale. I'm a blogger. I have opinions. But by your reasoning being polemical is so bad that I deserve this: 'Carl Salonen Libelous Workplace Allegations of Child Pornography and Sexual Harassment at Long Beach City College'. You're basically arguing that a hot woman in a mini skirt and pumps deserves to be raped: She asked for it.

Fact: You are morally bankrupt.

Ignorance is no excuse. If you were a co-blogger at Stormfront but "never read it" you'd rightfully be called out as a white supremacist for putting your name on the page, which would rightly be considered an endorsement of the hate. The attacks on me have been bigoted and racist. I've called these out repeatedly. Walter James Casper III is a proven racist bigot. But you still post there, claiming "I didn't know." Hitler's top architects of the Holocaust claimed "they were only following orders." Who's your f├╝hrer? Certainly, Casper is not worth it. He's sponsored the hatred, promoted attacks on my workplace, endorsed racism and bigotry, and personally harassed and threatened me and my family. And you still think that it's cool to blog there.

Fact: You are a moral reprobate and ethical weasel.

Your whole comment above IS IN FACT an insult. It's not argument.

Again, you lose. You can't argue facts and you claim ignorance when called out for endorsing the hate. You're running with the progressive hate bloggers and you're doubling down on the hate and harassment. That's despicable.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Seriously, how many times do I need to say this: I don't give a damn. I don't care what they say about you. I don't care about you. Why is this so difficult for you to comprehend? Do I approve of what they do? No, I don't. Do I disapprove? Not really, because I just don't fucking care. There's a lot of misery in this world, Donald, and your little problems are merely comical by comparison.

And when I'm telling you that you brought this upon yourself, that's not from someone who's siding against you. That's from someone trying to help. Because this just doesn't happen to everyone, and is the reason you're supposed to treat people with respect instead of hurling personal smears every chance you get. Hell, you're using these attacks as an excuse to smear ALL liberals, as if the small handful of people attacking you are somehow representative of the movement. Do you honestly not see how wrong that is?

You apparently get a big boner from relentlessly smearing your opponents with personal attacks and then express outrage when they do anything about it. Like with that link you posted. I only skimmed it because I'm kind of busy right now, but his big problem seems to be that he thinks YOU'RE harassing HIM. And he was trying to get you in trouble because he thinks you're doing something wrong. Now, I don't know if that's true or not and I don't care. But it's obvious that you've got some personal war going on with the dude, so it really shouldn't have been a surprise for you that he's trying to hurt you personally.

Again, that's why you shouldn't mess with people. You never know who is crazy and who might cross lines you don't want crossed. And if you treated people with more respect, you wouldn't be having these problems. As a reminder, you yourself outed someone who didn't want to be outed, as an attack on him. You say I'm low, but I wouldn't violate someone's personal life as you did.

As for your charges of racism against them, why should I take that seriously? You've said the same crap about me and there was no basis for it whatsoever. Maybe it's real and maybe it's imagined, I don't care. You're just the boy who cried anti-Semite to me. And while I never suggested that you were self-hating back when they accused you of being racist against Obama, you try to throw that in my face as if I'm a self-hating anti-Semite for reasons that you never can explain. It was just an empty smear and you refuse to back down from it. If I took you seriously, I might be offended. But instead, I just laugh it off because you're nothing but a joke to me.

And the thing is: Your insults suck. They don't hurt our feelings. They certainly don't win debates. And all they do is make people mad at you. So...why do you use them? You used to know better, which is why you pretended as if you didn't insult people; even though you were. But you gave that up long ago and go whole hog smear machine every chance you get. And you eventually push even my limits and I start returning fire just because it's so fun and I give up any hope of having a real debate with you. Because yeah, I enjoy insulting people, but it's counterproductive and only makes things worse. You need to learn that.

And again, I'm not saying this as an insult on you. I'm trying to help. If you want people to stop hating you, give up the insults. Stop making it so personal. It only makes things worse.

If you don't want to be burned...stop playing with fire. I simply can't stress that enough.

Doctor Biobrain said...

The first step to fixing a problem is to admit you have one. If you want this to go away STOP MAKING PERSONAL ATTACKS AGAINST PEOPLE. It's really that simple.

I mean, like the claims of me being a nihilist. What the fuck did that even mean? I'm a CPA who has his own business, a family man, completely trustworthy, and widely regarded as a nice guy by everyone. I'm one of the most optimistic people you'll ever meet and rightly so, because my life is good and I'm having fun about 99.9% of the time. I believe America is great and want it to be even better for everyone.

And so the idea that I'm a nihilist was soooooo ridiculous that I eventually turned it into its own thing. I really enjoy writing those nihilist posts and I owe it all to you, for being my inspiration.

And yet you stand by those claims, as well as all the other smears you've thrown at me over the years. And what did you gain from it? Nothing. Not a damn thing, except a lot of hassle and a blog devoted to denouncing you.

So how about you change your ways? Stop the personal smears and start making amends by acknowledging that you were wrong for personally attacking all the people you attacked. I'm telling you, these people aren't monsters. Or I hope they're not anyway. And maybe it's too late and they'll just pounce on you, but you shouldn't let it bother you because it shouldn't be personal. And more likely than not, you'll find that they're just regular people like everyone else.

The way I see things, if you're not having fun in life, then you're doing it wrong. And I don't see how you're having fun with this. There's a solution and you're the only one who can do it. You can never insult someone into submission, but you can certainly win them over with a little friendliness and understanding.

Liberals aren't evil nihilists, Donald and we never were. Life isn't nearly that exciting.

Donald Douglas said...

' I'm a CPA who has his own business, a family man, completely trustworthy, and widely regarded as a nice guy by everyone.'

Says who? You don't tell the truth. You're probably an unemployed 20-something living out of his or her parents' basement. Who knows who the fuck you are. You're a coward, whatever your real name is.

Shoot, you and Racist Reppy are two peas on a pod. Damn!

'Oops! MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Spews Hatred of American Exceptionalism: Racist Attack Blogger Walter James Casper III Caught Lying Again!'.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Keeping it classy, I see. Nice. Why bother listening to good advice when you can double-down on the hate?

Seriously dude, I take pity on a fellow man and offer you a hand, and all you can think to do is spit on it. That's fine, I like you better as a clown anyway. I spend so much time being polite to people I debate that it's always fun when someone gives me an excuse to really unload on them.

But for the record: I've never lied to you, Donald. Why would I? I don't care enough about you to lie. I mean, if I were to lie about my life, why wouldn't I pose as an astronaut or something? Or at least a lawyer? Who pretends to be a CPA? A quick search of my blog shows that I've been referring to myself as a CPA for years, long before we met. So if it's a ruse, I'm obviously quite thorough about it.

But of course, I suspect that you're still upset that you're the Ivory Tower Academic living in Calipornia, while I'm the small business CPA in Texas. Must burn pretty deep knowing that your work is so meaningless. I, on the other hand, am up to my eyeballs in tax work right now, so it's nice to take a break to clown around with you for a bit.

But please, keep up the personal attacks. It only confirms what I keep saying about you. Or you can take my advice and stop making this so personal. Your choice.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Oh, and another thing: You're really better off not knowing my real name, as it'd only confirm everything I said; while the mystery allows you to believe that I'm lying. Except...I'm not sure you'd find me anywhere online even if you knew my name. I just Googled myself to see, and all I find are other people with my name; even though it's not particularly common. I'm not on Facebook, Linked In, or nothing. I don't even have a business website, as I already have more clients than I want and don't need to market myself because I'm so f-ing good at what I do.

But if you search Doctor Biobrain, you'll find me all over the place; and I'm the only one. And that's the thing, online, my blog name is who I really am. And I like to keep it that way. Life's already too serious to bother with real names. Sometimes, the mystery is better.

Donald Douglas said...

Actually, pseudonymous attack bloggers are cowards. And the hate is found at your hate-hole buddy blog, AmNi --- which I've now reported to Blogger for stalking and harassment.

Stay classy: 'California Penal Code Section 646.9 on Criminal Harassment and Cyberstalking: Statement of Warning to Hate-Blogger Walter James Casper III'.

Doctor Biobrain said...

As you've proven quite clearly, attack bloggers use their real names too, Donald.

Meanwhile, I'm NOT an attack blogger. In fact, a review of my recent output shows that I'm more likely to be arguing against people on my own side than yours, and remain respectful of my opponents; even when I strongly disagree with them. Because that's how it's done. This isn't personal; it's politics. You need to learn the difference.

So you can keep calling me a coward, a liar, a morally bankrupt nihilist, a slimy polecat, or whatever other insult you can dream up; and it doesn't score you any points whatsoever and it certainly doesn't hurt my feelings. But what it DOES do is demonstrate why anyone would want to hate you. Because you're so full of hate yourself. I myself don't hate you because I don't take you seriously, but there are obviously other people who feel differently on the subject.

I'm telling you, it's not too late to stop all this, but you've first got to understand how you got into this mess to begin with. They didn't come after you. You came after all of us, and continue to do so. Stop digging, Donald. This isn't going to get better on its own, no matter how much you complain to Blogger about it. If you want the attacks to stop, you need to stop making them yourself. Escalating things will only make them worse.

And again, I'm not saying this as someone attacking you, as I'm not involved in this fight at all. I'm just trying to help.

Donald Douglas said...

Biobrain, you're not too smart.

The left has been attacking me for years, as they can't stand conservatives, and especially conservative professors. Whine all you want but nothing compares to the vile hate attacks thrown my way forever. And still, I give as good as I get, and apparently that's pretty good since radical leftists took their battles offline with their despicable attacks at my workplace attempting to get me fired. Repsac's sponsored those very attacks at his blog. So, your argument is bull. No one should be attacked offline for political commentary, but of course you have no moral decency, or you wouldn't be blogging over there in the first place.

You might want to quit now. The heat is on: 'California Penal Code Section 653m on Criminal Harassment With Intent to Annoy: Report on Unwanted Illegal Contacts by Fascist Hate-Blogger Walter James Casper III'.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Donald, do you ever watch 30 Rock? There was an episode where Tina Fey's character dreads going back to her high school reunion because everyone hated her in high school and was mean to her. But it eventually turns out that the reason they hated her was because she was so rude to them all the time and was so wrapped into her own little world that she wasn't aware of how vicious her insults were and how that was the reason people didn't like her. She wasn't being bullied. She was the bully, and didn't realize it.

That's you. You're the poor little victim who imagines that the world is out to get you because everyone's so mean to you; completely unaware of what a total dick you are to the rest of us. So that even when we try to be nice to you, you lash out and insult us repeatedly until we give up and stop being polite.

Because look, I didn't know those guys before I met you. We found each other because we were all victims of your attacks. The liberal blogosphere didn't hunt out a conservative professor to knock off his perch. No, we found you independently, because you were such an offensive jerk who constantly used ridiculous smears, like calling us nihilists all the time and insisting that we were depraved.

And that's how this happened. That's why that blog formed against you. That's why you got attacked.


And here's your homework assignment: Pretend for a moment that liberals are NOT evil, but merely disagree with you about the nature of our government. Feel free to think we're stupid and misguided, but not evil or inherently different than yourself. Then, re-read all the insults and smears you've hurled at us and try to imagine how it looks from our perspective.

Having read enough of your ramblings, I know you'd HATE yourself for what you write. You'd be outraged by it; and not without justification, as you're such a total dick to us all the time. And I say that, not trying to be rude, but simply describing your behavior.

And again, you can stop this. It doesn't have to be this way. But the solution is for you to realize the root cause. It's not because you're a conservative professor. It's because you're a total asshole to all of us. Only by realizing this can you start on your way to fixing the problem.

Donald Douglas said...

Look, if you're fantasy justifications make you feel good, have at it. Fact is progressive don't like free speech when it's directed against them. And they're not "liberals." We don't have liberals anymore. The Democrats today are socialist, anti-American and depraved. The fact that you refuse to repudiate bad acts sponsored by your hate blogger cohorts doesn't reflect well on you, but no surprise.

I've reported Racist Repsac3 to the police: 'California Penal Code Section 653m on Criminal Harassment With Intent to Annoy: Report on Unwanted Illegal Contacts by Fascist Hate-Blogger Walter James Casper III'.

Nothing compares to progressive hate. Nothing. Spin all you want, but you're a meaningless coward blogger who knows nothing. Loser.

Donald Douglas said...

Do an experiment for a second.

Pretend you actually believe in free speech. Then pretend that there are lines that shouldn't be crossed, no matter how hard one is being criticized. Then read William Jacobson, who did not endorse me here:

"Putting up with criticism can be tough, particularly when it is unrelenting. Being called names also is not fun, but one gets used to it.

We don’t all just have to get along. But there are certain lines which should not be crossed, and trying to disrupt another blogger’s employment crosses that line. Can we at least agree on that?"


I'm going to pretend you have a moral backbone and that you will at least concede that lines have been crossed and that you'd rather be on the good and decent side on this.

I'll check back to see what your response is.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Donald, do you really get some boner by proving me right? Why can't you disagree with us without smearing us?

Look, I understand that you want to cut taxes on the rich to make them more productive, make poor people suffer for their own good, and believe that the government should be making medical decisions for women. I get that. And while I think you're incredibly wrong for supporting the policies, I assume it's because you're misguided and don't know what the hell you're talking about.

And so this makes me a depraved person? Because I'd like to see the rich pay a minimum 30% income tax, I'm a bad guy? Because I support free lunches and healthcare for poor children, I'm anti-American? Are you nuts?? What the hell are you talking about?

Because these are the things that liberals support. And yeah, there are wackos on the left who demand the end of capitalism, just as there are wackos on the right who think taxation is illegal and believe they have the right to shoot cops. What does that prove? Nothing. Because the vast majority of people on the left are pro-business liberals who understand that equality is good for America. And you can smear us all by pretending otherwise, but it only makes my case for me.

And again, we're left with the fact that the guys attacking you are doing so because...YOU ATTACKED US FIRST! Seriously, the first comment I ever made to you was because you were unfairly smearing a liberal. And when I politely corrected you, you blasted me for it. Just like you blast everyone else you disagree with, and instead of having a polite discussion, you smear us endlessly with personal attacks...just like you're doing now.

And so it all comes right back on you. Stop the ridiculous attacks. This is YOUR FAULT, dumbass. Seriously, you've got no one to blame but yourself. Quit the attacks and you'll find that the attacks against you stop.

Or...you can continue to insist that all liberals are depraved anti-Americans and continue to have people dump on you. That's your choice.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Alright, Donald. I'll give you my response, but I've got a question for you: What are your thoughts on Ward Churchill?

Not that I defend anything he did, as the guy was clearly a nutjob, just wondering if the people who wanted him fired for his free speech crossed the line; and if you've denounced the people who demanded he be fired.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Anyway, as for my response: Yes, I completely and totally think it's wrong for people to be fired for things they do unrelated to their jobs; and that includes things they've written and said. And yeah, that even extends to you and your hate speech.

So what? Are you expecting me to denounce what they did? Should I start a list denouncing EVERYONE who does things I disagree with? Because if I did, it'd be a long fucking list, because there's a lot of things that people do that I disagree with. So...why are you asking me about this? I don't even know the guy and this doesn't involve me at all.

And again, it's like you're still completely missing my message: Yes, these people are attacking you at a ridiculous level. No, I don't think it should happen to you, and I can prove that because I don't do any of it. As a reminder, you're the one who stalks me; not vice versa. But I'm not going to denounce the people for doing it against you because it's none of my business. And most of all, I'm not going to let you off the hook, because this is so clearly your fault.

Do you DESERVE it? No. But are you blameless? Definitely not. As I keep saying, there are scary people in this world and you shouldn't fuck with people you don't know. That's why you should be respectful to everyone, because you never know when someone might go crazy and kill you. And so if you go around insulting people all the time and making personal attacks, you don't DESERVE to be pummeled, but you wouldn't be entirely blameless for it either. And that's why we don't go around insulting people and making personal attacks, because we don't want to piss off the crazies.

But again, none of this has anything to do with me, so I don't understand why you keep harassing me about it. You don't deserve what you're getting, but you don't deserve much sympathy either. Particularly not from me, after all the personal smears you continue to make against me.

I mean, seriously? Coward? Loser? What are you, eight? Why do you do these things? And why would you expect me to denounce your enemies when you continue these unprovoked insults against me? Before you can expect me to denounce your enemies, I'd like to see a little bit of you denouncing your own behavior first.

Hell, if you changed your evil ways, I'd put in the good word for you at Nihilist headquarters and tell them to stop the attacks. Maybe even ask Commandant Supreme Obama to give you an extra gruel ration. Think about it.

Doctor Biobrain said...

Oh, and here's a good idea: Test my theory. Denounce your behavior and admit that your smears against liberals weren't fair, and that the actions of some liberals don't necessarily reflect any of the others. And admit that it wasn't right to smear the motives of ANY liberals, including the kooks; and show that you can disagree with someone without making it a personal attack against them. And you can acknowledge that, while many people on the left wage personal battles against conservatives they disagree with, that this behavior isn't acceptable from anyone and that you will no longer engage in it.

And then do it. Go two weeks without smearing your opponents in any way. Explain why they're wrong, without making it personal against them, or questioning their motives, or hurling insults about them being depraved socialists...even against the ones who really ARE depraved socialists, unless that happens to be how they refer to themselves. Just tell us why their words or actions are wrong, but without making this about them personally.

What could it hurt? And if the personal attacks continue to rage after that, after you've made a public apology and changed your smearing ways; then you can proudly proclaim that it was a test at my behest, and that you weren't really apologizing at all. And I promise I will make my own admission of error, both at my blog and on the American Nihilist blog, and tell everyone that it really was a test and that they all failed miserably.

Seriously, give it a go. Test my theory. See if the attacks continue even after you admit guilt and stop smearing. But the thing is, I don't think you can do it. Yeah, you could apologize, and you might even play nice for a bit, but I don't think you can write an argument without smearing your opponents, because that's all you've got. To you, it's not enough to say why you think a 30% tax rate is wrong, unless you can talk about it being a secret plot to hurt America.

But hey, you can prove me wrong that way, too. And if you pull this off and go the two weeks without personal attacks, I promise I will publicly state that I was wrong about that and that Donald Douglas was a better man than I gave him credit for. And I'd mean it, too. I don't have much faith in you Donald, but I'm always an optimist and I'd like to see you prove me wrong.

Or...you can continue to attack me, and prove me right. Your choice.

Oh, and as an addendum to this wager: You also can't engage in silly semantic battles or petty attacks on their use of non-standard words (eg, commonsense v. common sense), but instead have to make an honest attempt to understand what your opponent is saying. And if they tell you that they weren't trying to say what you think they were trying to say and that you were misunderstanding them, you have to allow them to do so; rather than insist that ONE WORD can be used to hang someone, no matter how much they insist that it wasn't significant or didn't represent what they were saying.

Because that's also part of your arsenal of bad arguments. But if you can play fairly and not engage in petty games and personal smears, I'll be the first to congratulate you.
