A bit off topic but ...............

I particularly enjoyed Chef Michael Hunter's response to daily protest by leftist vegans at his restaurant 'Antler' in Toronto. So much so I made the effort to eat there. And it was delicious.

Good news is he's still in business and the activist have done more to promote him than he ever could.

I'll have to check that restaurant out if I make it to Toronto.

I would have loved to have been going by when these snowflakes were filming. I would have run into the shop and asked for a sandwich to go so that I could go onto the sidewalk and stand with these snowflakes while I enjoyed my sandwich. I would also make sure to chew with my mouth open to truly disgust them until they got sick to their stomachs and left.

I'll happily revisit the actual topical thread if you want to discuss it there.

There is a mountain of difference between Eich who CHOSE to quit and Gunn who was fired. (And that's not even counting the other differences on the situation. One of which is that I don't recall ever saying that Eich should quit. )

You realize that I am challenging you on your claim of "YOUR" tactics, right? I'm not saying the left doesn't do some of these things.
Because the truth is BOTH SIDES pull this stuff.

On the right side, you have groups like One Million Moms boycotting things left and right.

If you can show me where conservative's have ever engaged in these "tactics", I will gladly apologize.

You might not like the relevance of the examples provided, but citing them is hardly an attempt at derailment.

What you said was:
Quote:
And this whole crap about "our tactics" is absolute b.s.
Please clarify exactly what you mean by that (what is the "tactic" you are referencing) and I'll be happy to show you historic examples of how wrong you are...
The only person who said anything about "our tactics" was you. I guess getting you to admit that the "left does some of these things" means your earlier claim that the left does not do these things is what is absolute bs .

Please show me where I said YOUR tactics? I said the left's tactics. If you choose to be included in that, then own it.

I asked to show me where CONSERVATIVES did this. You point to Republicans. Not that they are necessarily mutually exclusive, but they are hardly one in the same.

It was May when we ate there, the place was packed and we had to rely on a friend of ours to even get a reservation. They specialize in locally foraged vegetables and wild game meat. We had a charcuterie board a wild mushroom tarte and pheasant pot pie for appetizer. Our entrees were the wild game (wild boar bison and venison) burger a wild mushroom risotto with a bison ribeye and rainbow trout plate. All the sides were amazing too. Oh yeah and since I was in Canada I had the maple toffee pudding while my companions had smoked chocolate mousse. It was a great dining experience and we shared that we became aware of their place even all the way down in south Texas. They seemed genuinely grateful for the support they have been getting after some initially very negative attention and stress from some truly lunatic vegans.

They indicated that the press has generally been very good for them (now) and they are booked solid (it is a small place) most nights. Thanks in large part to the press and what is called the "Joe Rogan bump/effect" which is a real thing. That's how I became aware of Chef Michael Hunter when he appeared on Rogan's podcast. Great interview too.

I've got family up there so when we go back next year we are going to make our reservations in advance. I highly recommend the place if you get the opportunity. Lots of people eating tasty animals there thanks to some lunatic vegans and PETA protestors.

It is when the example provided has no relevance to the actual topic.
Somebody choosing to quit and somebody getting fired are two entirely different situations.

Funny how the left cries foul when their tactics are used against them.
I was clearly responding to somebody who was assigning the tactic to the left.

I've already clarified on this.
I was not claiming that the left doesn't do these things.
I was refuting the pretense that an exclusive label could be thrown at "the left" because both sides do these things.

So, the proper way for the original poster to talk about it would have been to acknowledge that BOTH SIDES do it, instead of trying to pretend it's just the left's tactic...

I am on the left.

You're essentially making a "no true scotsman" argument.
I've proven my point. I don't care whether you will admit it.

Wow dude.
Since when did you start caring so much about balance???
We'll remember that you apparently think anything pointed out about the other side should always be accompanied with such disclaimers, in reading future threads YOU start.

Man the contortions and convolutions you go to really are hilarious. AZWingers examples of the left practicing well documented tactics stand just as valid now as they did when he supplied them. You know before you broke out another of your well used tactics and declared those examples not valid for insert excuse here. Yeah no chit he was assigning the well documented tactics used against the Mozilla CEO and Chic Fil'A by the to the left. Genius of you to catch on!

And I see you are falling back on your "tone policing" again too, declaring what is the "proper" way for other posters express their points. As in you are full of chit.
