Which pesudo-intellectual LOLCow do you dislike the most? -

Notso jolly Halliday

The one referenced in my user name. Every time he pompously proclaims himself some sort of constitutional or judicial expert on Twitter, I just think of his atrocious drafting skills when drawing up a lolsuit and his overall pig ignorance.

It’s enormously gratifying that nobody pays his armchair analysis any attention.

I'm seeing a lot of HBomberguy, and that's fair. He's a prick, but credit where credit is due, I agree with some of his points on video games. I like New Vegas more than Fallout 3, LISA is my favorite game story-wise, Dark Souls 2 is enjoyable for me, and his take on speedrunning isn't really wrong, just lukewarm. And, I will admit it, the end of his CTRL-ALT-DELETE video where he is literally crawling out of a large print of Loss while naked, covered in lube, seeing himself in a shitty sonic cosplay and screaming "YES!" is the kind of art I like to see. A stopped clock and all that, otherwise, he takes himself too seriously and is a massive baby.
But, I have a bigger bone to pick with someone else.
I don’t remember if he has a page, but Destiny epitomizes everything I hate about modern debate. Constant talking down to anyone else with another opinion, twisting words around to the point all argument is about that, using the shield of ‘logic’ when you can use ‘logic’ to make any argument you want work, trying to make the goal of the debate to change his mind (an impossible task, no one changes their mind if they aren’t open to that), and thinking making the opponent frustrated means you win when in actuality it’s because you are being a cunt. Same things with Crowder, but at least he can pretend to be jovial about things. Destiny’s just an asshole about it.
I know this is probably ‘Mad at The Internet’ worthy, but it just gets on my nerves. I love debate, I truly think it’s an art form and really fun when done well. But Destiny and people like him suck that fun and art and nuance out of it. I’m seeing their sad, broken, angry style of debate become the norm more and more, and that just bums me out.
I see it change. It used to be that debate was the best part of an English or Speech class. You and someone else get a subject, research a stance, and just have fun with it. Performance, jokes, emotion, ‘logic’, cunning linguistics, fun back-and-forth, all of those were what made debating fun to do and watch. Now it’s all about winning at something where there’s no prize other than ego.
Debate’s just angry now.

I always could, so it must be the problem is you don't recognize what is/isn't one when you see it (or like many members here beside me, just like to post false things about me).
Be succinct or be nobody, T Gay.

Adam Conover. I just had someone recommend Adam Ruins Everything to me, saying it's like Penn and Teller's old show on Showtime, and I'd honestly prefer nutty libertarians over some jagoff who thinks ContraPoints is smart and not some hypocritical socialist cunt.

Probably TJ Kirk/The Amazing Atheist.

Guy's entire arguments early on sounded exactly like what you'd hear from a fedora tipping edgelord who only is an atheist to rebel against his religious boomer parents. His later political arguments also sound like something taken from Baby's First Book on Libertarianism.

Being both an atheist and a libertarian, this dumbass does us no favors with acting like an ignorant, loudmouthed 14 year old. Seems to be his actual persona instead of playing a character as well.

He's only famous because he was one of the first people to make a career of being a fedora tipping edgelord on the Internet. Also his dad was a convicted criminal and he has more in common with his dad than he likes to admit.

He inspired a whole bunch of people to become fedora tippers. This includes Amos "It's ok to fuck a baby" Yee. So he's pretty high on the psuedo intellectual scale. No one beats Carl Benjamin, who managed to collapse a political party and make himself look like an international idiot in the process.

Probably Roosh or Heartiste though they don't do much anymore, or maybe I just don't pay attention.

Give it to the end of Trump's presidency, tops, and the guys without threads here will have them and KF will have plenty of leaked and open drama to sift through.
It's really interesting how many of these, uh, thinkers have gotten threads here over the years. There was one point I suggested Milo was a lolcow and people thought I was crazy and he wasn't a lolcow at all. They all end up here.

Same with Sargon of Akkad. First post about him way back when was mainly met with autistic ratings, now look at what a mess he is.

I've wasted so much of my life following online pseudo intellectuals I have to do it in an Award show style.

ALT-ISTIC REICH: Richard Spencer
  • Nuked the original Alternativeright.com without warning
  • Disowned the term "alt-right" only to hop back in once the bandwagon took off without him
  • "I RULE OVER THESE Trump's Chosen People"
  • Charlottesville
  • Runner ups: Mike Enoch, Christopher Cantwell,
But at least he knows a good burger

MANOSPHERE: Vox Day a.k.a. Teddy Spaghetti
  • Pretentious as sin
  • Absolute cringe fan base with names like "The Dred Elk"
  • LARPs as super-smart elite strategist, but gets trolled and assblasted by Revenge of the Cis, which is the equivalent to being bullied by cliquish highschool girls
  • His Alpha/Gamma/Delta/Beta hierarchy is idiotic, represents everything that was wrong with the manosphere, and is just used to dismiss any criticism with his own self invented terms (which is a very gamma thing to do tbh fam)
  • Runner Ups: Matt Forney, Davis Aurini, The Bechleoff, any personality associated with MGTOW
I have so much to say about the "Manosphere" I may just do my own pseudo intellectual screed in the deep thoughts forum before the end of the year.

SKEPTICS AND GAMERGATE HANGERONS: Carl Benjamin
  • Smug
  • Perpetually stuck in 2015 "trigger da ess jay double UU's" mindset
  • Destroyed a whole viable political party
  • History of being a behind the scenes backstabber
  • Ring-leader of a group that should have disolved as an entity years go
  • Has ruined Mesoptamian history for me forever.
  • Runner Ups: Mundane Matt, The Gator Gamer (in here as GG hanger-on), Atheism-is-Unstoppable
Runner ups are lacking because there are so few Skeptics I ever cared about, even at their height.

LEFTY GEEK REVIEWERS AND BREADTUBE: Movie Bob
  • fat slob
  • greatly overestimates his intelligence
  • Childish Good Guy/Bad Guy mentality taken to terrifying conclusions
  • Absolutely incoherent worldview that even confuses even his allies
  • Runner Ups: Destiny, Thought Slime, Vaush, Lindsey Ellis, Jim Sterling, Zoe Quinn

Writing this up makes me realize I didn't drink enough of my uncle's vodka and whiskey over the holidays.
