hard-core insults cannot be off the table - see eg Anitah's obnoxious anti-american insults.
How telling. What you call "anti-American" is really just a differing opinion. What constitutes a pro-American? Someone who waves the flag and cheers on the troops for war? The fact that you deem it necessary to conduct a smear campaign against Anitah shows you to be someone who cannot debate the issues in a rational manner but who can only resort to insults as a way of punishing anyone whose political opinions you happen to disagree with. In other words, you are anti-freespeech. This makes you un-American.
Let's look down the board. Your insults began against another poster expressing criticism of the government. Anitah came to his defense, and for this you villify her.
So I say to you, if name calling is fair game with you, then it's fair to call you what you clearly demonstrate yourself to be -- a fascist.
