If "I support free speech" isn't the extent of the statement, you know something ridiculous is going to follow. It's right there with "I'm not racist, but..."

Just stop pretending.

I'm not racist, but I think the only way to save free speech is to to limit yours.

Or "no offense, but..."

You know what's coming is going to be incredibly offensive

If you just end things with, "...but God bless their hearts," you are absolved.

Be ready for a big flurry of Twitter and such today as Jian was found not guilty on all charges today. The judge made a statement, to paraphrase, that said all three of his accusers were demonstrated to be huge liars so how can I convict based on their testimony alone? That is just not going to go over well.

Here's a direct quote:
Quote:
"The harsh reality is that once a witness has been shown to be deceptive and manipulative in giving their evidence, that witness can no longer expect the court to consider them to be a trusted source of the truth," Horkins said.

"I am forced to conclude that it is impossible for the court to have sufficient faith in the reliability or sincerity of these complainants. Put simply, the volume of serious deficiencies in the evidence leaves the court with a reasonable doubt."

Yep.

I still don't know who he is, but I did learn the term gaslighting, so I have that going for me.

Avcusing someone of gaslighting is big in SJW circles.

Obese lesbian feminist friend is really on a rant. She's going on about how "there was no justice for the victims" type thing. I asked her if justice was a process or outcome and her answer was, "Justice is when that fucker gets what's coming to him." Did I mention she's also erudite?

It's described as a "politically satirical folk-pop band" so it's great to see Canada continuing its strong tradition of producing music that makes you embarrassed to be human

I once lost a friend (of the JezebelFeminist stripe) mostly because I wouldn't agree that rather than evaluating the credibility of Dylan Farrow and Woody Allen based on what people knew or thought they knew about the facts, everyone should just automatically take everything Dylan Farrow said at face value because rape victims have been disbelieved and silenced for years and it's time to start balancing the scales.
