Okay we trust Wheeler now. Good to hear.

You all stood by Wheeler can't be trusted and now he can be.

If there's Ls then everyone takes them.

One of these posters is in law enforcement and would probably have some experience as to how robberies actually go down. The other generally has "toilet" as part of their nickname. :trumps

Ya but one of them has a long history of healthy skepticism and bullshit detection and the other is etiolate.

so why trust his statement to CNN

edit: Actually, you're wrong Boogie. If everyone was right and I was wrong, then that would involve believing Wheeler now and yet not believing him then. If we're not to believe Wheeler at all then it's the nuclear option and we all get rekt.

'We should trust Wheeler.  Seth Rich was murdered.  As much smoke as you all chase, in the end you don't believe in the truth. It's just tribal war for many of you. I'm supposed to discount one report because of how it serves a political party and yet believe any other Trump report because of how it serves a political party. That's not how I operate. I can see Trump is a liability because he doesn't know how to do the job and still see that Seth Rich killing is worth attention. '

'No.  You're dumb.'

'Just follow the sources guys.'

'He got his info from fox news'

'It is a mess at this point.  Lets all take our Ls'

Yes, people doubted his story and him.

My original post didn't quote him. It quoted a Fox News source that wasn't his, but a Federal Investigator.

Then PD posts Wheeler saying his sources were Fox News and the Fox 5 interview was to set up the fox story,

So, if you followed along, my quote is only falsified by the guy y'all said not to believe.

Etoilet makes the classic mistake of any r/pol, redpill, or Sacramento Kings fan forum poster- thinking he's smarter than the people he's trying to fuck with.

Best to pack it up and head back to the minors, toilet. This bush league shitposting doesn't fly here. This is THE BORE. We only want the highest quality shitposting in this fine establishment.

Let me try hitting it from a different angle to see if it goes in syph.

That post was essentially catastrophizing the level of actual catastrophizing present in this thread to a :neogaf level.

 Which, when you think about it, sort of makes you party to the very group and behavior you are disparaging?  :idont

Let's run this down:

-believed it was about ethics in game journalism
-at best helpful stooge for alt-right turdlingers with his "you guys just don't get it, let me explain what is going on" routine, at worst a disingenuous merkin of a human being
-likes Guild Wars
-reposting arguments from fucking lunatic conspiracy theory sites now
-Sacramento Kings fan

You sure you're smarter than what I just left in the toilet bowl, bruh? Because from where I sit you look like a misogynist, racist apologizing, conspiracy theory espousing, Guild Wars and Kings fan.

So. I'm just not sure about that whole smarter than me thing.

This thread is nothing but conspiracies at this point. The idea that Rich is a distraction is conspiracy itself. The Russia stuff is mostly conspiracy that suddenly sprouted once the Dems lost. The fake news narrative. You're in an endless propaganda circus. Nothing illustrates that better than Wheeler.

Tonight I played this quest in Witcher 3 against the ghost of a pugilist who could never win a single fight. Even his ghost would get its ass kicked for hundreds of years by children and drunkards. But it would never leave for the afterlife, so tormented it was by it's unbroken losing streak. I beat this ghost by letting him win, thereby lifting the curse.

I dunno why I'm telling you this but I think you might have just outargued everyone here.
