    Yes, and I already told you that directly myself.

    I AM a troll, der The only difference between me and you is that I admit it, though I don't start bait threads like this.

    There are shades of trolling. Someone who ever says "that's just your opinion" is trolling (dismissive tactic used to avoid a point)...someone who ever knowingly commits a logical fallacy, such as red herring or straw-man, is trolling.

    When you started this thread about a disabled woman, you became a fellow troll. Don't be surprise to see me here

    Appeal to popularity.

    Re: Town Hall Protesters Shout Down Disabled Woman

    I watched the video with the disabled woman. What struck me was the insensitivity shown towards the woman's words and her account of her condition. It was an account told by a woman that would easily engender compassionate, understanding feelings in normal people, but that actually engendered aggression in those others. I think it's disgusting that when someone is telling their story... when they are giving a poignant account of their situation, that others have obviously become so incredibly "dehumanised", that they dismiss that person in such a horrible way.

    What the hell did the left expect when they come out and announce that the debate is over?

    Example: The Universal Health Care Debate Is Over | OurFuture.org

    OK fine, you want to stop having a civil and intelligent exchange of ideas, we'll go right to the dirty tactics.

    "The debate is over".....orly? We'll filibuster your townhall meetings.

    Don't like it? STFU about "the debate is over" bull**** then.

    It wasn't referenced in the post as being the problem.

    But even if she's being shouted down for telling her story, how does her being disabled make it any more onerous than shouting down anyone else's story?

    It's true -- you're simply looking to play into a deeper layer of victimology, and her disability is a tool for you.

    Satandog didn't start this thread, I did. Pay more attention before accusing other people of being trolls

    Ignoring my strongest argument to focus only on a single mistake is a straw-man, troll

    Yeah I give one example and you assume I gave an exhaustive list of all references and occurrences.

    Over generalize much?

    You didn't have an argument jerry. You accused someone else of starting the thread and being a troll. So what is your purpose here on DP? It's obvious its not to actually debate in any of the threads. Again I pointed out that those who were shouting down this woman were also shouting down people on their own side because they sounded intellectual. Time for you to look up the definition of a troll
