From what I understand James Gunn did exactly to Ben Shapiro what the "alt-right" did to James Gunn. Which is take some old **** he said,take it out of context and harass him about it and harass him. Basically Gunn was given a taste of his own medicine.

A lot of sounds like the usual leftist drivel of if you don't agree with us then you area nazi nonsense the left tries to do.

Personally I think its about time the right uses the left's tactics against them.Because maybe this trying to get people fired over **** they said might stop if the left realizes it can happen to them.Maybe when some left winger speaks somewhere the right should get all rowdy and give them a taste of their own medicine.

Funny how the left cries foul when their tactics are used against them. I don't agree with doing this too anyone. I think it is tasteless and wrong in any case. But I do see the irony in the left crying about something they frequently do to those with whom they disagree.

When someone on the Right says something offensive, the person who finds out about it and reports it is a hero...

I don't know anything about James Gunn's politics.

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...

Remember this? The Mozilla CEO hounded out of his job for a contribution to the campaign for proposition 8 years earlier.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wsj...own-1396554132

You wrote that the CEO was just not tough enough to cope with the "criticism" which included boycotts by major business partners.

The OP video goes to great lengths to blame the person who exposed the offensive materials for the loss of the directors job. Yet when the CEO was harassed for contributing to the campaign for a proposition approved by the majority of voters the CEO "deserved it."

I don't know, how about the Chick Fil A boycott? Does that ring a bell? Or going after Rush Limbaugh's sponsors due to his political opinions?

Then there are the tactics to shut down speakers that the left disagree with, as in just about every time a conservative tries to speak on a college campus.

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

I was just about to bring up all those examples, but you beat me to it. A frequent occurrence with fi66 is that he takes great umbrage if anyone makes any kind of generalized comments about the left. Regardless the evidence or context. The problem is that he enjoys doing the same thing himself about the right. And it really frost his doughnut if you dare point that out.
