We spent hours disproving some of his assertions just to get back at the prick. I once walked out of class. Near the last part of the semester it dawned on us what he was doing. He was brilliant. We bought into it early on. I learned so damn much in that class. It was a great experience. I never cut his classes because I wanted to be there and dare him to prove me wrong. Great professor...and he was still a prick.
    I would've been cool with that as well, I tried at first to make a game out of it, disprove his positions, talk to him after class, etc. etc. I did my research, showed up prepared, and carefully formulated my arguments as best as I possibly could. Usually he would just ignore what I had to say and fall back on his talking points, which I would try to respond to, or occasionally he would attempt to criticize what I had to say, which I also tried to respond to. Most of the time I didn't actually get to respond to him and he didn't always call on me, but I actively thought about what he had to say, how he said it, and where he was strong and weak in his argument. Then, around half way in the semester he pulled me to the side after class and pretty much told me that disagreeing with what he said was a "distraction to the rest of the class." So in otherwords, I kept to myself from that point on; which is probably a good thing because at the point the class really became less about discussion and more about his tirades on Marxism.

    At least for me personally, I suppose I don't really learn from professors like that. I find it too easy picking apart their arguments, its almost not even a challenge. Then they usually come up with really bad counterarguments, which makes me feel like my effort was wasted. Furthermore, its almost sort of offending to me, I expect my professors to be smarter then me, to one up me, and to make me have to back and research my position and come up with a new one. I don't expect to be able to go toe to toe with them and see them flinch.

    Hmm, I see both sides as repulsive. I don't care for public cussing nor displays of bloody fetuses.

    Neither side is trying to sway others to their thinking, they just want to make a public stink. Go to hell with both sides.

    Just as the Westboro Baptist Asswipes, they have no intention of persuading people to join their thinking. They just want to get in your face and scream. To hell with them too.

    I'm tolerant of Commi-Libs. I don't like them but tolerate them. I believe Commi-Libs and those who support them are ignoramuses for the most part, and have serious problems with logic and honesty. Obama is their poster boy; the man who on the one hand condemns bombings as everyone should, but has a past where he sought out a terrorist to assist him with his political career. You see... a dumbass and a dishonest one to boot.
