Is GWB exploiting a state of perpetual war to stifle internal dissent?
 
Ted Rall is one of the most passionate, articulate writers we have in America today. He understands democracy and exposes those who wish to slowly repeal it.

I have heard Rush Limbaugh do an entire segment bashing the man, without once mentioning his name. Rush did not want Ted to lift the veil of ignorance from his listeners minds.

Rall's latest is a masterpiece.

I need to read no further than the following quote from the article:

indicates that the White House is flipping ahead to the next page in its Hitler playbook

To know that this author has precisely zero credence.

I believe every letter of this:

[ QUOTE ]
As did the phony Verizon employee tearing out of my building's basement, leaving the phone switching box open, when I demanded to see his identification. He drove away in an unmarked van.

[/ QUOTE ]

I'm sure this guy will disappear soon for revealing the GWB master plan to become Dictator For Life. Sounds like they are going to need lots of glowsticks and a really good air conditioner. I'm suprised they didn't already do it for the Jesus article. Must be getting sloppy.

Edit to ask pretty please for the link of Rush Limbaugh bashing this man that you mentioned. I don't remember it, but I bet it would be pretty good, if Rush even did one.

Good to see you've cemented yourself as a troll.

How does invoking the name of Hitler invalidate his opinion?

I don't get why people say this.

As for ex: This was back when the Minnesota Senator was killed in the plane crash and Rall suggested that it was an assasination by the government due to his anti-war stance.

Didn't find El Rushbo, but I did turn this up:

Michelle Malkin about Ted Rall

Having an opinion makes one a troll?

I assume what you really mean to say is: having an opinion I don't like = troll.

Correct?

Just look at how many times Rall was wrong in this article.

Have you ever read Ted Rall?

Btw, his trollishness has been established over a while now. This is just the icing on the trollish cake. If he had replaced "Ted Rall" with "Michael Savage", I would have come to the same conclusion. Both are nutjobs

1) Yes, I've read Ted Rall.
2) Merely citing/approving/agreeing with nutjobs doesn't make you a troll; it makes you a nutjob, or merely someone who likes and agrees with nutjobs.

Maybe we just have different definitions of what a troll is. I think of it as meaning something along the lines of 'someone who posts on a message board with the explicit and obvious purpose of starting a flame war'.

I think you use it to mean 'someone I don't agree with.'
