Interesting method of dismissal.

Check his profile:

New? Paid shill with new account.

Old? Paid shill who bought account.

Also nice touch with the irrelevant speculation about using an Iphone from a Starbucks wifi. It's almost as if you think that would have any bearing on the actual statement he made. You should instead make an argument about how @jw48335 is wrong instead of lazy ad hominem attacks.

Edit: Yes, it's easier to downvoat than actually articulate an argument.

Shills are arguing in bad faith, and deserve nothing except an attack on their character for being empty vessels for their masters.

New? Paid shill with new account.

Those are not the only metrics being examined.

irrelevant speculation

Educated guess. Not irrelevant. Leftards and shills are hypocrites 9/10 times. And that's me being charitable.

Your "argument" that they aren't shills is not convincing enough to change that rule of thumb. We don't owe you or them our time or energy. And if you're still a genuine leftard by this point then you're willfully blind to developing social and political circumstances, and arguing with you is pointless.

You are now dismissed. Let the door hit you on the way out.

I'm seeing a strong sense of mischaracterization of opposing opinions, which is probably why you're exerting so much hate right now. Alright, then I should fill in for what I presume he means by "corporate america", and the strong sense of "otherness" you have towards dissenting views.

This false dichotomy or more/less government is perpetuated by the establishment of both sides. The left draws this strawman of the right wanting to yield control into the hands of corporate powers, while the right makes exaggerated claims of the left wanting government tyranny. Once you get past these bullshit exaggerations, you'll see that the fundamental values are pretty much the same between the right and what you describe as "leftards". Both sides are opposed to tyranny. The left fears unregulated, amoral corporate control over society, while the right fears an overreaching government interfering with our lives. Both sides are right, yet both are squabbling over semantics, pointing fingers at eachother for every problem we're facing.

If we got past this, we might actually be able to affect real change.

Aww, did I intrude on your little safe bubble? I know you've retreated here from Reddit because you got tired of losing every argument. That won't save you from people mocking you. Find someplace else more safe to peddle your hate and stupidity. You can't refute my arguments - label me a shill if you want, but it's just an admission of your own weakness.

The standard mode of operation here is just to use weak attacks. Most of the alright people are unhinged or so angry they can't make a coherent statement about anything. Thank you for some sanity. Voat seems to be pretty well overrun by racists, anti-semites, xenophobes, religious bigots, conspiracy theorist, narcissists comma anti-science wackjobs, High School dropouts, predators, and various other people shunned by polite Society. It's pretty sad.

You're not wrong, but you're engaging in the same kind of petty insults that they do themselves. Nobody will change their views after being called those things, even if they're true. It's important to stick to the arguments instead of giving them labels like the ones you just made.
