Curious on the board's opinion and thoughts. Every one has the right to say what they want to so not debating that.

When this phrase came out, I thought it had a little bit of humor, but the more its been around and overused, it seems a little cowardice to say write, and/or wear rather than the actual meaning of the phrase.

People can disagree, but to me you should have the courage to say the meaning rather than hide behind a clever phrase.

Just curious if people agree/disagree and if the people who use that phrase feel like cowards because they are afraid to use the 'real phrase'.

I don't know about cowardice but using it is being very disrespectful to a person who was just doing his job and has repeatedly said that he has no desire for his name to be used as a political statement. The use has harmed his livelihood. But, it seems being respectful of others is not high on the list of the people that are using it. So it is yet another example of how low we have become, but not surprising at all.

It's just stupid people thinking they're being clever.

I like when stupid people announce their stupidity publicly.

Makes it easier on the rest of us.

Classless and disrespectful now and it was classless and disrespectful then. However the partisan zombies cheer their true believers.
De Niro received a long applause and his was decidedly more profane.

This dumb thread would say otherwise. People are obviously triggered by it and until they aren't you are gonna keep seeing it lol.

LOL.

There isn't a single poster in this thread "triggered" by this dumb saying.

It is what it is....and what it is is dumb. And saying it's dumb isn't being "triggered".

I don’t know why it’s now but because this one guy said it directly to Biden and then Joe agreed with him, the story has taken off the last 48 hours. The problem some are having is that this guy is being hounded and attacked but when a severed head of Trump was paraded, the media just shrugged. De Niro used profanity and threats of violence and everyone shrugged. Some nobody uses an euphemism and they want to end him. But the guy is using his new found fame;

Now do regular people care? I don’t. As much as I hate politics and politicians, I don’t use the phrase myself. I have no problem saying the actual expletive if I needed to but as of so far, Joe and the DNC have performed exactly as I thought they would, so no need to say anything. Just a bunch of silliness. As usual.

I'm not disagreeing with your overall point, but this specific example is not applicable. Kathy Griffin was almost immediately cancelled for that photo. She was doing NYE with Anderson Cooper and it was bigger than Dick Clark's countdown. Now, she is absolutely gone, not even on the D list.

She wasn’t on the d list to begin with. She is terrible not including her personality

Or you could be like this guy:


I'd honestly rather people do this. Just say what you mean. Don't use stupid code. Saying f a politician is a stupid message, but it's better than pretending that's not what you mean by using something literally taken from a college football game. Also, it doesn't offend me or even make me angry, it just induces a larger than usual eye roll.

You said “this dumb thread says otherwise....nobody in this thread is triggered.

You should quit moving goalposts.

Really, you don't?
Nope, I don’t. Certainly not in this thread.

I see the same @#$&, different day, from both sides.

Let's not try to act like either party has got the market cornered on whining about meaningless stuff, manufactured "outrage", being a-holes, or anything like that.
