your posts are mocked because of the moronic football-barracker
manner in which you express them, not because they're right wing. you
contribute nothing worthwhile to any debate, you just drown it out with
jingoistic sloganeering, reducing everything to an infantile equation of
"all things good = capitalism, all things bad = commie under the bed".

i.e. the fact that you are a right-wing troll is incidental to the fact
that you are a troll. you'd be just as pointlessly irritating no matter
what opinions you were expressing.
