When pressed for more info, they’ll claim it’s not their job to teach you and you should “do your own research.
Educate yourself shitlord

Enlightened Cynics
The apotheosis of decades of South Park is a generation of online denizens who smugly point out that actually, both sides are bad, so fuck the whole system, man. This laziness-cloaked-in-nihilism conveniently removes the need to have actual opinions about anything, but "giant douche or turd sandwich," right?
God I hate this claim most South Park episodes ended with a message usually about doing things in moderation or not throwing out the baby with the bath water. Like most South Park episodes had a point to them besides just cynicism to the point the show even had an episode recently mocking people who claim South Park has created "alt-right" cynicism

Haphazard Posters
Your college drinking buddy probably thinks he’s adding to the discussion by dropping a link to a TaxesAreTheft dot Ayn article into your Facebook discussion on how to pay for Medicare for all. That boomer may have believed he was sharing the REAL Ilhan Omar Twitter account that somehow only had 14 followers and was just tweeting “death to Israel” over and over. Or maybe they both knew what they were doing. Either way, both parties showed a lack of critical thinking skills that should preclude them from discussions at the grown-ups' table.
So linking Vice talk about how gay furry emojis destroy capitalism is better? I mean people posting blatant uncitied propaganda is annoying but it is the pot calling the kettle black here. Also Ilhan Omar Twitter really did tweet this

Homework Assigners
When presented with audacious claims like “the Earth is flat” or “vaccines cause autism,” most of us demand some sort of proof to back that up. But when popping off online is so easy, the burden of proof can get rather burdensome for those who’d rather espouse their off-the-wall theories and call it a day. When pressed for more info, they’ll claim it’s not their job to teach you and you should “do your own research.” Do not take their advice. Worse than those providing no links are those who provide too many, like the Jordan Peterson fans who insist that you need to watch ten hours of his lectures so you know why lobsters are good or whatever.
IT IS NOT MY JOB TO EDUCATE YOU.

It's a good thing that no one on the left has ever said this.

Enlightened Cynics could be better termed as, "I can't possibly be a faggot, thus you are wrong."

Debate person and logic destroyer are redundant, as are strawmanning and willful misinterpretation. Only A handful of these are even trolling tactics.

“champagne socialist” and “limousine liberal” slurs have long been used to try and discredit good ideas and candidates and they always will be.
No they're used to point out hypocrites that probably won't do what they claim they want to politically. Like most of Hollywood or PETA supporters just as random examples. Or edgy high school anarkiddies.

Online your language is your fashion, so you can recognize a rationalwiki by using jaqing off and a kiwi by using exceptional.

By having some lingual tics tied to communities, it's easier to resume our naturally tribal ways.
Be quiet you JAQing exceptional.

Be careful of logic destroyers, they have superpowers one can only dream of.

Also where the fuck is the "for the lulz" category?
That would require these people to be well versed in online culture which, as you've clearly deduced from this article, whoever wrote it is not.

Funny how they don't mention that it was the commies who invented whataboutism when they say it's a "Cold War relic". Also, people seriously misunderstand whataboutism. It's not a fallacy at all times. In the context of the argument that "climate change scientists say that all countries will have to reduce carbon emissions and we can't police the world, so a complete restructuring of society that will do more harm than good won't do anything more than fuck America up without solving the problem", calling whataboutism is not valid.

The attitude Vice has is that their ideas are obviously, uncontroversially right, so that the only possible reason anyone could be criticizing them is because they are bad faith trolls. If you're critical of the Good People, you should immediately abandon your embarrassingly stupid ideas, and feel bad about having them. The purpose is to make you feel so bad about your wrong opinion that you don't even notice that they are not making any other coherent points. Social Justice is not and has never been a tool to persuade people by cold logic. It's about closing the Overton Window until there's no room for anything else.

Thanks Vice, now I know that shit posters and snuff spammers are not trolls. Could you imagine if these people had to face that?
