No. I said that you seem to focus far more on supposedly progressive politicians and movements than you do on conservative politicians and movments who are equally as guilty about whtever issue you have with them.
For example, you criticise Clinton far more than Bush, you deny anthropogenic clinate change, and you oppose vaccination.
While you do have an ideological stance opposed to neoliberalism, you also are very opposed to movements in the developing world that opposes neoliberalism on any pragmatic level.
As far as I can tell, you have no hidden agenda. Your actions seem more that of a contrarian than anyone who would actually profit from any of this.
I don't think it's a bad thing if it's done honestly, but you don't even do that honestly.
Yes, you keep calling me a liar.
I don't know that you're an all around horrible person but I do know that you have horrible politics and that intellectual honesty isn't exactly a priority for you when you're promoting or defending your horrible politics.
Right. You think I am a liar and an oppressive authoritarian.
I do not care. This is just all an extended ad hominem, and a way of deflecting from the facts.
If you logically accept the fact that someone can be a shill or a lying authoritarian and still be correct
, then all of this indirect name calling you do is irrelevant.
