That's pretty much how I see it. Obviously party affiliation is going to be important for reasons of partisan rhetoric, though.

There was no linked article in the OP. In fact, the OP itself seems to signal there's no point at all to the thread.

The point about racist comments was raised by Norman Alexander about three hours later, but he didn't link any article.

You linked an article, but your original point in the thread was about his actual party affiliation.

Even Roger Ramjets, the OP, addressed this point in his only other post in the thread.

Wasn't this thread started by a banned sockpuppet?

Thanks! I was late to the party and totally missed that important fact!

Totally demolishes Stacyhs's idea of the original purpose of the thread, though.

Yes, it was originally linked but it was removed due to the sockpuppet being banned as Firestone has so kindly provided. The original point being to show that there is mail in ballot fraud being perpetrated by Democrats. Why by Democrats? Because you don't expect a MUSLIM to be a Republican. All one had to do was read the comments below the linked article to see that. Your comment, therefore, is based on inaccurate information. My comment that "the commenters under the linked article assumed Mohamed was a Democrat and engaged in racist comments" still stands.

Ha! How do you figure that? If I'm wrong I'll admit it.

Thanks for that. I was perturbed to discover that I had somehow become the OP - made me doubt my sanity for a minute.

Knowing now who the actual OP was, I no longer have to guess the intent.

That's it!

Apparently you'll need to explain it to theprestige.

Still waiting for you to explain to me how it demolishes my idea of the original purpose of the thread.



ETA: By the way, editing Zul Mohamed's MyLife page and putting my name on there was an appalling thing to do. Remove it. Now.

You know you can edit that page yourself, any time you want, right? That's why it's such a terrible source of "truth" for anything about Zul Mohamed.
