Official "Intellectual Dork Web" Fanboi Containment Thread

It's not Mike Harris (Ontario Premier) or the other Mike Harris (Ontario Curler and Olympian) or even Gary Harris (Nuggets basketball player). It's some other Harris that's being talked about in the Impeachment/pardon thread. This is the containment thread for all talk about some other Harris guy. Mods can move all those posts here, thank you. Any future debate or posts about Harris should go here too.

That reaction to Harris was weird. Do people really side with Klein,Ben affeck, and southern poverty law center?

Re: Official Harris Thread

For some reason, I remember owning a Tim Harris trading card from his time on the Green Bay Packers. Given the age I collected cards and when Harris was on the team, I'd wager it was from 1990. Topps was pretty popular back then.

Man what happened to sports trading cards? I used to collect them with my dad. Those were good times.

I was a clerk in a sportscard shop from 1991 to 1994.

Re: Official Harris Thread

Since we can't get this thread going, maybe we can just make it the catch-all Intellectual Dark Web thread. Here's some Jordan Peterson idiocy, can't wait to get him and Sam Harris in a room together to talk about if #MeToo has gone too far:

I don't know about the other two, but I do in fact side with the SPLC. Not siding with them seems a very suspect position to take. I would find it fairly difficult to justify a decision to not be on the same side as an anti-hate group. I would worry it might make me a terrible person.

That an anti-hate group is going after someone who is among one of the most current influencers in reforming Islam. The dude was once an islamic extremist.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is also on the list for being critical of Islam. She’s an activist who’s foundation goal is to works to end faith-based “honor killings” and female genital mutilation. She herself a victim of...

The SPLC has done great things in the past, but these were huge mistakes that they had multiple chances to right when pointed out their errors.

Re: Official Harris Thread

I always thought Will Harris was a tremendously underrated pitcher. The year I did 200 fantasy baseball leagues in 1 season I got in on him while the getting was good as a speculative closer. Eventually he got the job. Then he sucked

Come to think of it, **** Will Harris

Re: Official Harris Thread

Harris runs into the trap where is so often misquoted and assigned racist motives where none exist, that he gives people like Shapiro and Rubin a pass for how intellectually dishonest they are. When he has a problem with them from saying a false thing about him, he will go to them and they correct the record.

This doesn’t happen with him on the left when organizations like Voxx try to bury him after the Murray podcast and make slanderous false accusations.

Maybe you should do a better job of staying current? They offered a full retraction and apology almost a week ago.

Yes, they lost the lawsuit...which I believe apology was part of. These people were on the list for a long time. People in trump thread thought somehow they were in the right?

Being on an anti-Muslim extreme hate list has consequences.

I wish they hadn't settled so we could have seen how Nawaz ended up on the list in the first place.
