Reprisal is an act of retaliation which could come in the form of a rebuttal of whatever shitty thing it is you had to say. 

See how your free speech is one sided? You want the right to say whatever you want but nobody else has the right to react negatively to it which is taking away their free speech. 

Your lack of free speech is nothing more than the lack of a safe space.

No I don't see that / one sided. I see safe spaces as part of the problem as well. But I can blame the 80s school system on that since you and I are both from the "sticks and stones" generation. You learned to deal in a few different ways and eventually we or some us out grew temper tantrums.

I'm all for replies and or retaliatory comments. People being ostracized for speaking their mind is a completely different story and super slippery slope at that.

And which one of us here in nbr is least likely to need a safe space? Here's a hint: it's not anyone with Shogun or sheets in the name. The amount of times I can read into yours or others liberals replies that infer the world would be a better place if "this" didn't exist (like freedom convoys, protests, anti vaxxers, Trump, tucker, Shogun's, conservatives, redneck hillbillies..) is astounding. And that's in the physical world.

What was that old nbr expression? Toughen the fuck up? To quote the joker: what happened? Did yer balls fall off?

So the world is a better place with Tucker, anti vaxers, and Trump?  Got it.  Who would have thought that selfish people that adversely affect so many others improves society.

This is the type of reprisal I was referring to. I just had to post something and wait.

You realize you're taking someones opinion as more than just an opinion? It's like I'm not allowed to have one or if I am, that it needs to be corrected by all of you. As a side note, I have to highlight that I simply answered Mr Oranges question.

Hope there's a safe space big enough for all of you to share.

And you don't allow me to have an opinion.  So what's your point?

That wasn’t a reprisal.

Yes, the world is a better place because of people like this. They create dialogue. People being wrong helps us decide what is right. Imagine if we all just accepted what is comfortable... the earth would still be flat and witches would still be burned at the stake.

Anti vaxxers are mostly just everyday citizens but Tucker and Trump shouldn’t even have a seat at the table when it comes to important issues; their motivations and actions clearly aren’t in the public interest.

What do they create dialogue on; how the world can be a better place or what is right? We already know what is right, what basic human rights are and how people should be treated. What needs to happen is for that message to be spread instead of messages of hate and intolerance. We need to think about doing what's in the best interests of all instead of what's in the best interests of ourselves. 

You're somewhat correct about the comfort thing though in that people don't like having their views challenged or having to face that what they know and believe may be wrong, especially if it affects their own comfort.

Splinky gets it, but you need to take a lap. 

Ive read tonnes of stuff that i dont really agree with, including their ideas, to help form or affirm my opinions. Do you only subcribe to those you agree with? That sounds dangerous to me.

I have no problem with serious dissenting opinions and I read plenty of them.

The outrage  performance Tucker, Hannity, Trump put on is not that.

Maybe you need to take a lap if you can’t see it for what it is

It had nothing to do with comfort.  They create "dialog" solely for personal profit without regards to the validity or outcome of their dialog.  They never acknowledge their lies and instead obfuscate obfuscate obfuscate.  This behaviour does not make the world a better place and improves nothing but their bank account balance.

So they don't do "dialog".  They talk because they can, not because they should.

And would the world still be flat with these types?  Nope, and society would be much further along without the waste that they create.

Really think that Tucker and Trump are the types that made that progress happen eh? 🤣

Collectively we've moved forward despite people like that.
