I have an old co-worker who I'm friends with on FB and every now and again she posts Leftist Drivel that is just completely off the wall. However this one I had to literally laugh because of the ignorance and Stupidity of this one.

Apparently Conservatives Hate Girl Scout cookies, this is news to me!? Any of you guys miss this memo too?

What are some replies I should give on her FB?

This is typically true, and I ignore her stuff 95% of the time, but this is just too much!
Link Posted: 3/7/2015 12:59:18 PM EDT
I can verify that that is true. I am a ranking official in a well-known right wing terrorist group. I can't mention the name, but I'm sure you are aware of it. We have an on going campaign to destroy the Marxist scourge that is the girl scouts.

I've probably said too much already.

Ask her to provide evidence that conservatives are trying to boycott the Girl Scouts. Evidence other than an obviously biased article.

I'm pretty far right and I've never been told by anybody not to buy Girl Scout cookies.

ETA....As I recall, it was the left that was hammering the Boy Scouts a few years ago because they didn't allow openly gay scoutmasters, or something like that.

Girl scouts are not Christian based first off. They don't deny any girl that wants to join. According to a woman I know who works for the local counsel they try to include all girls no matter what.

If you gallop around facebook slapping all of these lefty idiots, all you're going to do is skyline yourself as a target. It WILL come back to haunt you; that's who these people are, and it's what they do.

There isn't really any point in arguing with her; the ideology fundamentally denies the notion of objective truth in the first place. They really don't care what the truth is. A lot of the drivel they put out is really only to identify people who disagree so that they can find some way to fuck them over.

Apparently you are unaware that the loony fringe right has a history of accusing the girl scouts of being an organization devoted to leftist indoctrination.

Of course it is all true, what they say at WND. Hate cookies, abortion cookies, whatever. Don't let your daughter join the scouts. They'll try to turn her into a baby-hating lesbian.

OP-

If you're going to respond to stuff like this, don't go tit for tat. Give it a series of full broadsides, leave her limping home to port. It sucks less for you to just occasionally engage rather than to feel like you have to respond to every idiotic thing they post from "rightwingwatch". I say this from experience.

It's too late now, you've already said your piece, and if you come back with something else she knows that she's got you thinking about it. Don't do that. Instead, wait for the next thing that you know we've discussed here, and read up on all the documentable reasons it's stupid.

First as offered above, ask for evidence. There obviously isn't any for this, this is what "rightwingwatch" does, make shit up to be shared on Facebook as propaganda. Second, point out what they are doing- they are intentionally misrepresenting a group of people who they literally hate, for nothing but their political beliefs. A short lecture on tolerance and open-mindedness takes all the fun out of it for them.

If you think you can keep that up with some degree of regularity, then you owe it to your country to do so. If not, then after all rounds are expended, unfriend.

Right wing conservatives hate Girl Scout cookies?

Tell her you know a right-wing conservative whose wife was the Pablo Escobar of Thin Mints. He ate so many boxes of Trefoils for breakfast, he had to take out a second mortgage to pay for them. His house held something like 1000 cases (about 8,000 boxes) of Girl Scout cookies.

Girl Scouts only make about 5% proffit off each box they sell.

Boy Scouts are smarter. they sell popcorn with an 80% to 90% profit margin.

It's better for you, because you get to vent at a liberal. She won't figure it out, unless you chastise her like a stupid child, and even then odds are low. But people who are watching will see a liberal behaving badly and a conservative being an adult.

They like to push "emotional responses" with their uninformed libral readers and this is why they push the fear issue on Gun Control by making things up to scare their "followers". They make up a lot of these "facts" to push their agendas.

Typically most Conservatives repeat facts when they "bash" liberals, they yet butthurt and make stuff up to "compete".

I'd bet they make WAY more then 5%. Hell, there is probably 20 cents worth of actual product and then another 15 cents for packaging [box and all the plastic to hide all the volume not taken up by actual product], figure quadruple that with labor and energy costs and add 20 cents for shipping, anything above that is 100% pure profit.
