** BLM is why you NEED to be literate! ( A grammar Nazi thread) **
It's all very well calling these people what they are; uneducated idiots. But PLEASE understand, that if your basic command of the very language you profess to be your own is sub par then you are no better than them.
I saw this in a thread...

'more intelligent then you will ever be , uneducated poor boy'

This was from a thread about black people complaining that their babies were pepper sprayed.
Come on, people!

I know how so many of you feel that language is of little import, but I assure you that it is VERY important!
It reflects directly on you and what you are trying to say.

If you feel slighted because of your own lack of literary competency, I suggest that you doing something about it.

I am a Trump supporting, second amendment loving, heterosexual white male and I am ashamed of many of you.

So, go ahead and call me a fag or whatever makes you feel better about your inadequacy and then do something about it.

Or join the very people you so despise...

This is why I KNOW we're fucked! There are just too many stupid people out there, and there seems to be no fix for it.
If how you write is how you think then we truly have no hope.
We have been infiltrated by the mindless masses and we will continue on the path we're on because of people like YOU!
Imagine Trump was an idiot who didn't know the difference between your and you're or there and their.

I guess I have too except that people wont change there atitudes and would just rather be dum

Accept.

You are correct in what you say, before the internet this kind of propaganda couldn't be pushed without somebody catching it. Hiding behind anonymity allows people to indoctrinate an otherwise naive youth using the most effective and nasty techniques available.

Most people have always been this dumb. Many can hide it well in conversation but give them a pen and paper and ask them to work out a few sums and they're screwed.

Re: ** BLM is why you NEED to be literate! ( A grammar Nazi thread) **
OP I agree with you (not so much on the point that others might be stupid, as often there are very literate types who lack common sense/street smarts/reasoning), though your whole premise is very true.

I can't comment on the BLM perspective, but I would add, language/words are used every single day by the 'TPTB' as a tool, if not outright weapon. You see it all the time in the english media; the weazel-word, ambiguous terms that leave things open in their favour or are designed not to recriminate etc.

So it is of utmost importance that every word and term is considered in relation to the intended (or implicated) or hidden message.

It starts with people taking responsibility of their own words and understanding grammar (and using it accurately) in order to take action or really understand what is going on.

That said, there are still many very smart people who might not have a strong command of English grammar, but generally yes...it does help people's causes by being absolutely clear in message, which in turn means grammar matters.

If you feel slighted because of your own lack of literary competency, I suggest that you doing something about it.
