I nearly got into a Facebook argument with a 'friend' (he's a strawberry floating bellend) I used to work with. I replied once to a post he made, he responded and I was on the cusp of going back again when I remembered the sensible mantra that "it's not worth it", which is something I've agreed with and followed up until that point.
I then noticed a little later on that he had slightly amended his post in an attempt to clarify the crap point he was trying to make. Although it didn't change how gooseberry fool the post was in the first place, it did at least focus it slightly in a way that marginally (microscopically) reduced its overall twatiness.
I wondered to myself, perhaps it is worth it after all? What do we think? Do we have a duty to fart into the wind in the hope that it might eventually enhance the aroma, even if it's only by the slightest amount?
Went fairly well and I've got some of his friends that I don't know agreeing with me instead of him .
What's the best counter to the old 'I want to improve society' — 'aha, but you participate in society' debate? He's coming out with the same gooseberry fool, this time suggesting that Greta Thunberg is a liar because she irons her clothes, which contributes to climate change (that he doesn't even believe in) .
A massive Corbyn fan was arguing with a massive Tommy Robinson fan. The TR fan was arguing that TR is not a Nazi. The Corbyn fan said that TR was a Nazi, the TR fan said TR has shared a stage with Jewish people and the Corbyn fan then said “anyways tommy shares the stage with Zionists, masked as Jews”.
I could resist and so asked what his definition of a Zionist was.
Those that support zionism. Those that believe Jewish people should have their own country. Should be noted that the Jewish faith is most against the concept of Israel and having their own nation.
Odd I thought, so I asked what he meant by the Jewish faith being most against Israel.
**mostly You can find rabbi's speaking against Israel on youtube. They are literally against having a "jewish homeland"
I said that YouTube videos are not evidence.
I thibk Rabbi's have a decent knowledge of thier religion, dont you?
I agreed, I would imagine most Rabbis do have a decent knowledge of their religion. So I asked if he thought most Rabbis were against the idea of a Jewish homeland.
Well there are rabbi's IN israel, but worldwide, yes i believe so. I believe in Jewish Literature, its states that Jewish people must live peacefully wherever they are in the world and conform to local laws. And i believe it states that there should be no homeland
So I asked if he thought that meant that Rabbis in Israel didn’t have a decent knowledge of their religion and asked what Jewish literature said there should be no homeland.
