He should work for Fox News....he'd fit in VERY well there with comments like that.

wow, that is way out there. Either he's trying to get fired or his twitter account was hacked.

Then again, Matt Stryker called Barack a communist on ECW so I'm pretty sure this is aligned with WWE politics.

Well, lets remember who Styles is working for. He's probably in line for a huge raise if Vince caught wind of those "tweets"....either that or we'll be seeing him back on our TV screens very soon.

Granted, I don't think it's a very good marketing strategy to insult probably half of the small fanbase your company has left so soon before a PPV. I mean, I think I've only actually visited the WWE "Universe" website a couple of times since it came out (if that often), so I'm not exactly convinced to go and chat it up after that.

I had no clue Styles was such a dipshit. I checked to make sure it's really him... and it's really him... all this stuff is echoed on his WWE.com page too.

It's not like he's presenting a sound disagreement with my views... he's just being a dipshit in forums where he should be being more professional. Nice one, Joey. I'd probably get along better with Bradshaw than you.

Hey, didn't Joey punch Bradshaw in the face? Maybe we pegged the wrong guy as the bully in the altercation!

Bradshaw's a good guy, as long as you don't let him know that you talk about wrestling on the internet and keep the conversation on workout supplements and the economy.

Also shilling his site, great place for supplements.

No he is an idiot for acting like an idiot. His role is to attract viewers, not repel them.

Also, calling Obama a Marxist is idiotic.

Who's he supposed to be attracting? Intellectuals? Last I checked, we're about as smart as wrestling fans get. Democrats? Foley got booed for even daring to mention his dislike of "Red States". Way I see it, he's in a business that caters to idiot conservatives (and no, I'm not saying conservatives are idiots: there's plenty of idiot liberals, too) and he's doing his part to a T.

It's not his opinion that's necessarily idiotic, it's his arguments (or lack thereof) and the way he presents them. It's so absolutely over-the-top and fanatical that he makes Glenn Beck seem fair and level-headed by comparison.

Is it true that wrestling fans tend towards conservatism? If so, I wonder why. I suppose a case could be made about geography and/or being coupled with country music makes nascar seem like it draws more conservatives, but I don't think most sports have any sort of political bias.

Or maybe it's there and I miss it because I pay so little attention. There's the political world and then there's sports to enjoy as a mindless wind-down. And wrestling is as mindless as it gets.

Also, is it even possible to present any sort of cogent argument on twitter? From my very little exposure to it, it's pretty much all idiocy.

I don't really care what his opinion is, or that it differs from mine. It's that he throws it in the for absolutely NO reason. He's talking about the PPV chat on wwe.com... what's the point of putting a jab like that in? That's something a 12-year-old does.





Is everyone mad here?
Of course they are, and you are too... otherwise, you wouldn't have come here.

Correct.

Not correct.

See the problem here is that I don't really give a fuck if you're right or wrong about this... really I don't. What bothers me is that I now think you're an idiot for making a childish political jab on a wrestling forum, when all I want to do is talk about wrestling with you. Which is why this is stupid on Joey's part. It comes off as completely unneeded, and in my opinion, uneducated.


As for wrestling being conservative or not? The WWF has always championed the cause of the uneducated, working class with xenophobic angles and stereotypes since it began. I can deal with that once in a while, because people are fucking idiots no matter where you look. However this is different than good old 'them' hate. I really have no interest in arguing this shit with anyone here, let alone pondering the political views of a former announcer. Its just uncalled for and childish.

Yes, he's an idiot for "disagreeing with me." Not for not understanding what the words he's using actually fucking mean.

Honestly, that could be a verbatim quote from any episode of Glenn Beck.

And how is that? Styles made several fanatical comments without providing any arguments to back up why he feels that way or how it is even remotely factual. It seemed very pundit-like to me and I said so.

I'm afraid you've lost me once again. Forgive my ignorance.

I was just bringing this up because someone asked if wrestling was more geared towards conservatives. I was just filling them in since they must have missed the past 25 years. This was in no way a response to Joey's comments, so don't try to pull a 'kettle calling someone black' routine here.

This is really what I was getting at first. Its not so much that I disagree with Joey, its that he doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about. So no. I do not find conservatives to be idiots. I find idiots to be idiots. Plus at any rate... WHY? Why would he randomly say this? It doesn't make me want to watch wrestling, in fact it make me want to not watch wrestling.

(for the record, my ex was a conservative... so no, I don't call people idiots for differing from me)

Ah, that makes sense now.

By the way, does the fact I once searched for and watched one of Beck's pseudo-comedy performances to see if he was as deranged on-stage as he is on TV make me somehow flawed? Or does it merely show my interest in punditry?

As for Ford, I had heard of his anti-Semitic leanings and his relationship with Hitler and Nazi Germany, but I didn't think it was as black and white as that due the fact that he was shown in court to have no knowledge of what was published in The Dearborn. Or maybe that was bullshit and he was aware of all of that "International Jew" shit the entire time

It still sounds like you're calling conservatives xenophobic racists. If I'm misreading what's clear to everyone else, I apologize.

And, I've only seen Beck for about 20 minutes when he interviewed Jeff Probst and thought they were both very good. I didn't realize he did politics.

I'm not calling all conservatives racist and xenophobic. Just the racist and xenophobic ones.

USA! USA! USA!


Listen, I'm sorry if you think I'm bashing all conservatives. I'm not. I've just noticed over the years a trend in wrestling to pander to xenophobia and occasionally racism. I also have noticed over the years, in my own life, pretty much 90% of the people I meet that are overtly racist and/or xenophobic, are self professed conservatives. I've seen this at work, I've seen it at school, I've seen it at parties... I wish it wasn't this way. But I can't help if its true. Did you read my TNA house show thread? Now, the confederate flag guy, I don't know personally, but if I had to guess as to his political affliation, I wouldn't guess Democrat. These are the people that buy into xenophobic angels. These are the people that drive out of the backwoods to the big city to yell shit at the 'fucking towel head'.

It sucks that a party that has great ideals like smaller and less intrusive government at its core, tend to attract these assholes. It really is a shame, and I feel bad for the normal conservatives that aren't dumbasses... like my ex. But that's what we get with a two party system. I don't like that on the flip side, liberals are grouped in with anarchists and hardcore conspiracy nuts. But hey, its a two party system, everyone picks a side and usually these are the sides they pick.


And all of this is why I wish wrestlers and the like (like Joey) would just keep the real world separate from the world of wrestling. I don't really want to discuss this in the wrestling forum... just like I don't want to know that Joey has no idea what the fuck Marxism is.

I am going to point out that Joey Styles is doing this on Twitter. Is it possible that maybe he is just making comments to fuck with the audience? I mean, IT'S TWITTER FOR FUCKS SAKE!!! I know on Facebook, I post offensive status all the time to get a reaction. So maybe, just maybe, Joey Styles has the kind of sense of humour where he'll post shit he doesn't really believe so he can get reactions like the ones above (because he knows people pay attention to his Twitter account).

Or maybe he is a xenophobic hateful conservative dipshit. It's a 50/50 crapshoot in my books.
