No, he cannot debate your points rather than twist them. He does this constantly. My advice would be to depart from any so called discussion that this pompous jerk engages in because he just uses it as a platform to declare his intellectual superiority and judge others who disagree with him.


I'm glad you stopped by the for the discussion, DangerBoy. I know you've got some sort of a mental problem with me, but you couldn't be more off-base in this case. Perhaps, for my own edification, you could outline specifically where I was twisting his points in any way.

Should you not be able to do so or should you in your eminently cowardly way refuse to respond, then kindly f*ck off.

Oh, and before you say "See?" you'll need to explain where you were engaging in the discussion rather than "judging others who disagree with you". Thanks.


A typical response from Woodruff. You intentionally twist what others say, argue against it, then feign disgust that the other person would dare call the original context of what they said back to the forefront of the discussion. You then behave as if someone would desire your approval if they would want to be taken seriously.

I wasn't involved in this particular discussion, but read it. I noticed your usual tactic of twisting what someone else was writing......again. You already have a pattern of doing this from previous debates.

So as I requested above...perhaps you can specifically point out where I have "twisted" his words. Otherwise, I am afraid that it is only you that is doing the twisting. Thank you.

NOTE: I did edit my original post prior to DangerBoy's response...I decided it was uncalled for...I'm making this statement here to avoid claims that I post-edited after DangerBoy's response.

For starters, Viper's original post that you took issue with specifically cited a news story about how Ron Paul & Dennis Kucinich were supporting efforts to end military involvement in Afghanistan & Pakistan by the end of the year.

Here's the complete quote:

ViperOverLord wrote:RP's winning the poll. That's just libs being mad that there is no Obama wins option lol. Again, RP has no spine. He'd be a great economic president but he'd just let the terrorism garden grow.

http://www.caivn.org/article/2010/07/26/dennis-kucinich-and-ron-paul-unite-bid-challenge-obamas-war-expansion-pakistan

For all you sell-outs - life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is fundamental. If you can't vote for a guy that believes in that then you're off. RP would not preserve the life part.


Which you selectively quoted and conveniently omitted the part about how Paul would not preserve life, one of the 3 pillars of our independence that our founders wrote about.

Woodruff's selective quoting method:

Woodruff wrote:
ViperOverLord wrote:RP's winning the poll. That's just libs being mad that there is no Obama wins option lol. Again, RP has no spine. He'd be a great economic president but he'd just let the terrorism garden grow.


As opposed to sowing the seeds of terrorism in the garden like we have been for quite some time now?


Notice the omission of the story, providing context for Viper's critique of Paul. This is then followed up by a very general assertion that the terrorism garden has had the seeds sown for quite some time now. He doesn't define this length of time, which administration or administrations it could be, other U.S. allied governments that could have aided in this "sowing", or other defective policies.

Viper then tries to bring back the original context to U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan since the 9/11 attacks, because that was the context of the news story cited. This is because the original story cited showed that Paul was one of two representatives who believe that our presence in Afghanistan increased the threat of terrorism. Viper points out that he doesn't remember our soldiers being in Afghanistan when 9/11 hit. In Viper's view, this means that a non-presence of American forces did not prevent the terrorist attacks.

ViperOverLord wrote:Excuse me but I don't remeber any American soldiers being in Afghanistan when 911 hit. That's just some weak sauce guy.


Which Woodruff then goes on to "twist" or add to Viper's argument words which he (Viper) never asserted. He (Woodruff) then proceeds to insert a 2nd question based on his own conviction that Viper's view is that terrorism was only based on one act - the 9/11 attack, and insinuates that Viper's position is that the 9/11 attack was the "sum total". Viper never said this, insinuated this, or came close to this claim. It was Woodruff inserting that as his position. I've bolded it in red.

Woodruff wrote:So all of terrorism lies within that one act? That's is the sum total of terrorism in your view? THAT is some "weak sauce", though it would explain a lot.


Viper once again tries to bring the debate back to the original context of Afghanistan, and U.S. military presence there fostering and inciting terrorism. This was, after all, part of the original news story that Viper had cited:

ViperOverLord wrote:You're presumption was that an American presence in Afghanistan fosters terrorism. I pointed out that they were not there when 911 hit. Try to keep up.


And here's the sneaky part. Woodruff replies by saying all the presumption lied with Viper. After all, "I never mentioned Afghanistan". Of course Woodruff didn't mention Afghanistan. That's because Viper did since he was trying to bring the discussion back to the original context of the news story, which Woodruff purposely omitted. This is followed by another sarcastic and condescending statement from Woodruff about "lapping him" (in fairness Viper started this with talking about "weak sauce" and "try to keep up"), and then trying to get Viper distracted with a question about his age, and how that is relevant. This is a typical Woodruff tactic of asking a totally different question than what was originally being discussed to frustrate the other person.

Woodruff wrote:All "presumption" here lies with you. Where did I mention Afghanistan? Try again...this time without the presumption. I'm about to lap you...that must be why you think I'm not keeping up.

Serious question here...how old are you? Yes, I do believe that's a relevant question.


Viper finally catches on to Woodruff's technique of twisting and has had enough:

ViperOverLord wrote:Can you debate my points rather than twist them. I will not be responding to you much longer if you insist on continually putting words in my mouth as a tactic to ignore what was just spoken.


In fairness, Viper did go down the sarcasm route as well. The bottom line though is Woodruff has a habit of doing this. It gets people frustrated, and perhaps secretly Woodruff just gets pleasure out of aggravating other people with this method. I don't know.

So then you agree with ViperOverlord that the only terrorism that matters is terrorism resulting from our presence in Afghanistan? Why? That is my argument...to look at the issue in the light of such limited information simply sets you up for failure and is a tactic of those who have an agenda in mind (in this case, to go after Obama), rather than in actually being informed citizens. If you're going to discuss the issue of terrorism, you should be prepared to discuss the issue of terrorism, NOT a very limited subset of it.

To do so completely ignores the whole reason why 9/11 happened IN THE FIRST PLACE.

If a foreign country were invading my country, and it was not to topple an oppressor or something justified, I would take to arms. The invaders would be the only ones calling me a terrorist. I wouldn't care what they called me. You know how I feel about name-calling :D

Once again, you insert something that was not said. Neither Viperlord nor myself ever said that the only terrorism that matters is terrorism resulting from our presence in Afghanistan. Nobody is making the case for isolating a subset as the sole criteria for viewing terrorism. Those are your words and nobody else is saying that.

The original context of what he (Viperlord) said was referring to Ron Paul. This thread is about possible candidates defeating President Barack Obama in 2012. Viperlord was referring to those who were voting for Ron Paul in the poll. You are the one trying to change the subject about how others are supposedly wanting to view terrorism through the narrow lens of 9/11.

Not accurate at all on your part, no. ViperOverLord specifically made the statement that Ron Paul would "just let the terrorism garden grow", which is clearly a statement based on his presumption of Ron Paul's FUTURE actions. I countered with the question asking about the seeds of terrorism that we've already planted...at which point ViperOverLord brought up Afghanistan and 9/11. Therefore, ViperOverLord clearly is the one attempting to narrow the focus of "the terroristic garden" to Afghanistan and 9/11. Would you like to try again?

Yes, very accurate on my part, yes.

Yes, within the context of his previous record according to the news story which you selectively omitted.

Woodruff wrote:I countered with the question asking about the seeds of terrorism that we've already planted...at which point ViperOverLord brought up Afghanistan and 9/11.


Yes, he did. Because that was the original context of the story that you selectively omitted in your partial quote.

Woodruff wrote:Therefore, ViperOverLord clearly is the one attempting to narrow the focus of "the terroristic garden" to Afghanistan and 9/11.


No, that was you inserting that as his opinion and then arguing against it. When he called you on it you tried to feign disgust when he tried to call the original context back into the debate.

Woodruff wrote:Would you like to try again?


Try what again? Every time you try to change the subject I think I'll just keep showing the original context and how much you don't like being caught playing your little games. Let's see, you've already used the "do you know how to read properly" tactic and "would you like to try again". I know you've got more little clever cliches to try to deflect attention away from when you get in a pickle. C'mon Woodruff, use them all. I'm sure somebody will fall for them. <evil grin>

Yes, very accurate on my part, yes.

Woodruff wrote:ViperOverLord specifically made the statement that Ron Paul would "just let the terrorism garden grow", which is clearly a statement based on his presumption of Ron Paul's FUTURE actions.


Yes, within the context of his previous record according to the news story which you selectively omitted.

Woodruff wrote:I countered with the question asking about the seeds of terrorism that we've already planted...at which point ViperOverLord brought up Afghanistan and 9/11.


Yes, he did. Because that was the original context of the story that you selectively omitted in your partial quote.

Woodruff wrote:Therefore, ViperOverLord clearly is the one attempting to narrow the focus of "the terroristic garden" to Afghanistan and 9/11.


No, that was you inserting that as his opinion and then arguing against it. When he called you on it you tried to feign disgust when he tried to call the original context back into the debate.

Woodruff wrote:Would you like to try again?


Try what again? Every time you try to change the subject I think I'll just keep showing the original context and how much you don't like being caught playing your little games. Let's see, you've already used the "do you know how to read properly" tactic and "would you like to try again". I know you've got more little clever cliches to try to deflect attention away from when you get in a pickle. C'mon Woodruff, use them all. I'm sure somebody will fall for them. <evil grin>


That you believe this is a "little game" shows only the depths of your own disease. I responded to his statement in good faith, to which he responded with a bailout. He didn't even attempt to respond to the point I made, which was that Ron Paul's theoretical "garden growing of terrorists" is pretty immaterial given the vast array of very real and actual terrorist-growing we've done for quite a long time now. If he wants to hide behind theory instead of reality, I suppose that's his problem. I'd be surprised at you supporting such a thing, but I know what angst you have over my ultra-liberal stances and all...

It is nice how you're telling him what to think. That way he doesn't have to think up all the excuses by himself.

I forgot to put him lol. He's been quiet lately but I expect him to try to run at least one more time.
