The protagonist that you are referencing is a young man that lives with his parents. He is unemployed and is considering attending community college. Sadly, he doesn't own any firearms and gets all of his conversational data from the internet. He is simply a pretender. He has changed his identity a couple of times and reentered these forums with his "new" I.D. I recognized him because you can change your name, but not your lack of integrity.There are a couple combative leftists on this forum that I haven’t put on my small ignore list. For one, I’ve mostly stopped participating in political threads, but they also occasionally post intelligent, insightful things that I can agree with, from a different perspective than the usual posts here.
Then in the very next post they’re back to self-righteous, condescending, partisan, “progressive” babble, meant to teach us ignorant knuckle-draggers a thing or two, and I loose interest.
It’s sad really. I see the occasional good post, but I stop myself from “liking” it because of the attitude or combativeness of the poster. I guess that’s why we can’t have realistic, respectful political discussion. We have an echo chamber here (like any place) but when someone comes along with a different perspective and maybe some good points, they’ve also brought the biases, condescension, and “common knowledge” of their own left-wing echo chambers with them, and it just doesn’t work out.
