[R] Steve Crowder thread

Because it's about experience and risk. Any slob can work in an Amazon factory, but it takes a special kind of skill to be a titan of industry like Jeff Bezos. This is why Jeff Bezos is much better compensated than the average slob. This is also why surgeons are paid more than slobs working in Target, because a surgeon requires much more training and much more skill.

Referring to people in minimum-wage/ entry level jobs as "slobs" seems... kinda baity.

Amazon is as successful as it is because of Bezos's leadership, and Amazon is a net benefit to society that provides goods cheaply, quickly and efficiently. I'll wait for you to start a Fortune 500 company or study for twelve years to become a surgeon.

But obviously you're not incentivised to do anything of substance with your life, so what's the point?

And this post definitely is.

I also wasn't referring to anyone specifically as a slob, so what does it matter for? I said "slobs that work at target" or "any slob can work at Amazon'. Not that all people who work in those respective places are slobs.
Notes on the Left | Leftism ought not be understood as a concrete political ideology, but rather as a counterculture movement whose principal aim is the total overthrow of democratic society.

For the last sentence, the context of the conversation is important:

But obviously (in communism) you're not incentivised to do anything of substance with your life, so what's the point?

Also about half the thread, from this post (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=489814&p=37522128#p37522128) onward, is wildly off-topic.

That was in a joking manner and not meant to be taken seriously.

Who cares what people call you? Most adults just pick themselves up and move along. How does it hurt you to be called a "lispy queer". Only manchildren get angry about stuff like that.

More flaming/baiting.

Too bad, that is easily the way it is read. Specific individuals are not the only ones you need to avoid attacking, our rules also extend to specific groups of people as well. If you can't tread that line, then don't bother trying to throw around insults like "slob" to begin with.

That is not what you wrote and is thus irrelevant.

"It was a joke" is not an acceptable excuse here. No personal attacks allowed, period.

This is just advocating for violence, pure and simple:

The best way to make Crowder run and hide in fear is to challenge him to an actual debate between equals... or punch him in the face, if you're a very annoyed union leader.

As far as I can tell, this is referencing an actual event that happened. Not seeing that as actionable.
