imabench
Benshapiro

This is a troll/semi-serious debate if the title didnt immediately give that away. Butthurt is described as 'An inappropriately strong negative emotional response from a perceived personal insult. Characterized by strong feelings of shame. Frequently associated with a cessation of communication and overt hostility towards the "aggressor." ' http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ButtHurt By saying that Islam is a very butthurt religion, I am by extension saying that worshipper...

The resolution is: Senator Joseph McCarthy is a hero. Context- The debate is specifically about Senator Joseph McCarthy's action during the 2nd Red scare which took place in the 40s and 50s.
