it's the nature of anything politics-related to be toxic, yes, but that doesn't make it any less jarring

Oscar trashcan Sesame street | NO POLITICAL MEMES IN MY TRASHCAN! | image tagged in oscar trashcan sesame street | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
The right to free expression of opinion is not the right to lie and also not the right to insult. And when proper argumenation comes to their insults you will be insulted, like being depicted on Hitler portraits, pictures of you in a straightjacket, exploding heads, laughs, well, yeah anything a moron would when they realize they have been outsmarted and must admit they are wrong, but don't want to, as anything a "liberal" (nearly nobody I spoke here used that term correctly. Liberalism is a right-end political view for starters, not left, but then again, they don't even know what left and right is)... And in PoliticsTOO things are also beginning to get worse...

I guess that is the "Freedom" people agree with. To agree only with the views they think are conservative, and anyone who disagrees must shut up... That is their view on freedom of expression of opinion... That only counts for those who agree with them... A bit ironic... They plead that freedom of expression should have no limits, and yet they try to shut everybody up who do not agree with them, which means they do (despite saying otherwise) they do limit that same freedom... Paradox?

I decided to ignore all "political" memes now.... That is all "insulting memes that have nothing to do with politics, but mention some politicians".... A true political meme is a different story, but I guess that too will soon be taken down by well, you get the picture...

Sorry about that... It's just a bit frustrating how political discussions take place nowadays...
Not only on IMGFLIP, by the way...

Good point. There's some truly disturbing stuff that gets posted on "politics." Free speech and all that, sure, but people still have a responsibility to communicate respectfully.

As a liberal who posts frequently in "politics," a stream whose right-wing tilt is pretty obvious, I'm sure I've been called all sorts of things I don't care to remember.

Thankfully, I came to ImgFlip with a pretty thick skin -- and anything anyone wants to say about a meme that took me anywhere from 5 seconds to a couple minutes to create is fine by me.

PoliticsTOO is a nice place, no doubt due to the activities of the stream mods whose 100% justifiable efforts at troll control infuriate right-wingers to no end (muh free speech!), but help maintain the respectfulness and viewpoint integrity of the stream.

As far as I know, conservatives who bring good-faith arguments and a respectful tone are welcome all day on PoliticsTOO.

Final thought (and shameless plug): I post a lot of political here on this stream of mine imgflip.com/m/Cringe_Hard

I'm happy to debate any political topic with anyone who wants to show up and chat with me here, largely away from the prying eyes of the more cantankerous political folks.
