My new strategy for dealing with online wing nuts: Telling them that they're full of shit
That's pretty much it.
I rarely go after wing nut comments, looking for a fight. Usually the wing nuts come after me after I've posted something in a comment section. Before, I used to give them a wall of words as a reply. A huge, poly-syllabic onslaught of facts, with a healthy dose of sarcasm thrown in just to spice it up a bit. Like idiots, they kept it up, which resulted in long, tiresome battles. These were pointless marathon sessions.
So now, I've decide to try something completely different: Dismissal.
No more long essays, filled with point-by-point facts. I just simply tell them that I DON'T BELIEVE THEM.
No more debates. I just simply tell them that THEY'RE NOT CONVINCING ME OF ANYTHING.
I don't call them stupid (Even if they are), I just don't give their lack of smarts any respect; I call them racist (even if they're loathe to admit it), even better when they're calling the President a "racist" themselves (how ironic); I tell them that I doubt that any woman would give it up to them (that's strictly for the misogynists); and when their logic is left exposed, I use their own words against them (mockingly).
Results: They've actually SHUT THE FUCK UP! Several No Replies on Yahoo and another asshole couldn't handle it because, like a fucking coward, he blocked my from replying on his You Tube vid.
This is freedom from "Freedumb", baby.
What a breath of fresh air.
