What did I say about being able to read your post history?

You mistake me. When I said "Just today?" I meant it as a preface to "I've only been in two arguments today, and neither of them were with causes worthy of respect - namely, support for fascism, and support for genocide"

Here’s your post from today where you call LibLefts “useful idiots who serve above (authoritarians) only to be purged when the revolution is complete”.

That's a meme, man, of what is effectively a horoscope for political nerds, and it makes fun of all the quadrants.

“The literal opposite of the truth. But I guess the guilt of having MLs backstab the leftist opposition so Fascist Spain could win hurts your point, huh?”

I'm sorry, how am I supposed to respond to a blatant bad faith effort to spread historical misinformation? "That's definitely true"?

With facts and sources to back up those facts. You can disagree with someone in a civil manner. If you actually care about my point about delivery, please watch that Bernie video.

Your meme does indeed make fun of all quadrants, but I used it because it's an example of the type of the insults. And let's be honest, there's evidence in those other posts that some of those opinions are not JUST satire for you. I mean, you called me out for being naively kind and employing "flower power", aka chances are you think I'm one of the useful idiots.

Aside from that, like I said - I can't stop you from insulting people. Your arguments seem to point to a belief in your right to do so. I don't think I would force you even if I could since I usually try to convince people instead. If I didn't change your mind, maybe I will change the minds of some others who may read this.
