Does learning that Dylann Roof donated thousands to Ted Cruz, Santorum, and Rand Paul worry you about their voting bases?

I find it quite ironic that someone whose name is close to 'people dont make sense' would post a comment so non-sensical as his vote

@imabench If you had say a kickstarter find setup, you hit it big and got rich off your idea, then someone that donated a nice chunk to your fund was found to be a child predator kidnapping murder sicko like a Charlie Manson for children; should we then change our minds about you? Heck, if you donate to say Hillary Clinton, find out someone else who donated is the same thing as above, do we look at you differently since you are part of her base? The answer is NO. People you have no affiliation with have no affect on how the world views you. Otherwise...HEY there were a few people that left America and joined ISIS, you're a terrorist imabench!!! See how stupid that sounds?

I don't know how to answer this one. I have been "worried" about a strong vocal part of the GOP base for a long time. They, the GOP, have done little to shake these people. They seem to encourage them.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T10:02:15.5350509-05:00
@TBR What would you like them to do? Stand up at the podium during a debate and say "Please, all murders, rapists, and all other violent and non-violent offenders as well as any individuals they may, possibly, could, maybe, dream of, have an inkling of thought to commit a crime at some point in the future, please do not donate to me!" That would eliminate every voter in the nation LOL.

MSPD your example is stupid because people donate to politicians because their views reflect theirs, and the question focuses on the candidates themselves not the entire rest of the voting base. Try to stay on topic
imabench says2015-06-22T10:58:44.1138244-05:00
Oh wait, sh** I did make the poll ask about the voting bases, not the politicians. Okay thats my bad guys, thats on me
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:01:29.3522020-05:00
@imabench Exactly, stay on topic bro. The question CLEARLY states "Does learning that [...] donated to [...] worry you about THEIR VOTING BASES?" The question CLEARLY is written in regards to the voting base (voting base is the subject in this sentence). The candidates are NOT the subject here. Break it down for the remedial class here ---- he is asking if their voting bases worry you, not the candidates themselves. This is what happens when you're worried more about trying to talk trash than properly responding to the question. Gotta love 5th Grade English Class.

Hey genius, read the previous comment
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:03:47.7580636-05:00
@imabench If poster asked about the candidates CHOICE of voting base, it would be different; However, he did not say that.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:05:33.9864715-05:00
@imabench Yeah, I am a genius, brilliant actually; this is why I can properly dissect a sentence using proper American English writing rules.
imabench says2015-06-22T11:06:44.5874641-05:00
You call yourself a genius yet you cant pick up on sarcasm.... You didnt even figure out that I was the one who made the poll until I mentioned it, idiot
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:12:08.4496921-05:00
@imabench Firstly, intelligence has nothing to do with ability to pickup on sarcasm. In fact, some of the most intelligent individuals throughout human history have had social disorders that kept them from normal social interaction. Second, sarcasm is almost impossible to pickup in strictly text based conversation, especially without appropriate symbolized queues; this is why text-to-speech software is terrible with voice inflection. Lastly, nice attempt at cycling attention to my perceived faults to avoid admitting that you created a question incorrectly. Classic Liberal methodology.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:13:37.7785860-05:00
@imabench Also, understand that this site is terrible at updating itself. Since I am unable to see the newest messages while I am typing, you can add 30 lines of text and I would never know.
imabench says2015-06-22T11:15:10.9576018-05:00
Anyone with more than 5 functioning brain cells can figure out when someone is being sarcastic to them in a text based conversation, especially when someone uses the word 'genius'. And I already DID admit to phrasing the question wrong, you just have an inability to read. Check comment number 6. The fact that you try to pin something I clearly didnt do as 'classic liberal mythology' only stands as a testament to how far up your a** your head is..... Idiot.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:19:39.9599538-05:00
My friend, like I said, this site is terrible with updates and structure. New messages are posted on bottom instead of the top. This means, I am typing a reply, you send a message or two while I am typing, there is NO POSSIBLE WAY FOR ME TO SEE THIS, I hit "Submit", I see it submit never noticing the new messages, I change to a different topic I am involved with; I never even get a notification because I was on this page when you sent your message(s) and since I also had no way of seeing the new post, it goes unnoticed. Also, the use of "genius" seemed to me (because I was unaware of your previous message for reasons listed above) to be more of trolling than sarcasm.
imabench says2015-06-22T11:24:16.7528789-05:00
Nice attempt at cycling attention to the perceived faults of the site to avoid admitting that you made a mistake several times. Classic Conservative methodology.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:29:32.7065574-05:00
Touche...Nice one :)
imabench says2015-06-22T11:31:51.3308358-05:00
Okay well we both seem to now be on the same page that I f*cked up on the phrasing of this poll, so i guess ill go do something else now
imabench says2015-06-22T11:32:14.1188776-05:00
Have a nice day!
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-06-22T11:33:06.5670862-05:00
Be easy my friend. I'll checkout your new stuff when I get back home.
imabench says2015-06-22T14:11:08.4049107-05:00
What?
Forthelulz says2015-06-22T15:00:22.2753755-05:00
@TBR Wait, are you talking about the PetersSmith/reece interaction?
TBR says2015-06-22T17:53:09.7368379-05:00
@Forthelulz - No. Another user that is hyper frightened of "thugs".
TBR says2015-06-22T17:54:12.6432481-05:00
@imabench - If that "what?' was directed at me, I was responding to MakeSensePeopleDont question to me before your back-and-forth with him.
Stefy says2015-06-22T18:09:27.6704566-05:00
As a liberal im saying this; this is politicizing this too much. Can people just feel empathy and be supportive for five seconds before they worry about their electoral agenda?
