    No, this isn’t “car driver crashes into a tree, complains about repairs”. This is “people with a different political opinion are suffering, yaaaaaay!”

    No. Again, this has nothing to do with tolerance. This is 100% tribalism and “lesser man” philosophy. You can disagree with someone and not be celebrating when they get heatstroke, it’s basic empathy

      This isn’t a “different political opinion”. Climate change isn’t an opinion, period. A different political opinion is supposed to mean a different policy solution to a specific problem, not wholesale ignoring reality.

        Okay, does that mean you would celebrate these people dying and getting hurt?

            Ah yes “they deserved it, good” = Shadenfreude, not totally being an asshole without empathy. Time to go to a local oncology center and shadefreude conservatives with cancer, huh?

              You need to learn about nuance. Thanks for letting us know that shadenfreude is bad, karma is bad, fuck around and find out is also bad, do stupid stuff and win stupid prizes is bad, irony, also bad, leopards eating faces, beleive it or not, bad. Let’s all pour one out for aggressive drivers getting speeding tickets, all the bullies out there who got punched back, and anytime justice is a served while we’re at it. If someone displays any emotion besides unbridled empathy for adults inflicting misery on themselves in all situation, bad!

                Way to go with the slippery slope fallacy huh, buddy. First of all - you shouldn’t feel satisfaction when someone gets hurt. No matter if they are speeding, if they were overeating or if they smoked.

                Let’s also not call this “any emotion”. This is “feeling satisfaction because of others surffering”.

                  So I took a browse through your comment history out of idle curiosity. You’re an “um actually” concern troll that just looks for things to argue about. It’s pretty obvious you don’t actually care. Maybe you shouldn’t feel satisfaction with being a contrarian assbag for entertainment.

                    Amazing, discrediting someone for being a “concern troll”. Or maybe I don’t like it when people get hurt and call out people who wish others harm. Because yaknow, I’m not a horrible person.

                  Slippery slope would be the person comparing self-inflicted heat stroke whilst supporting a fascist climate denier to getting cancer. Let’s make sure nobody ever has to face consequences for their actions ever again, what a noble fight! Thank you for making the world a better place.

                    Facing the consequences of their actions, and a different person going “oh yes let them die en masse I feel so satisfied” is two entirely different things

      This is “people with a different political opinion are suffering, yaaaaaay!”

      To be fair, the issue isn’t that they have “a different political opinion”, the issue is that they will cause insane amounts of suffering and deaths down the line if they get their way. Climate change will kill millions of people, and trump and his supporters seek to make it even worse for short term political gain (aside from the attempts to install an authoritarian dictatorship and all that stuff).

      That being said, I’m also not happy when indoctrinated people suffer, regardless of their murderous ideologies. Imo it’s more of a cultural issue, and nobody has any direct control over the culture/social environment that they grow up in.

        So the only thing stopping you from celebrating the suffering of other people is how closely their political opinions are to yours, and if you feel they’ve acted with negligence in their political support?

        Can you explain how this is not a tribal vendetta?

          These people are causing their own suffering and contributing to that of many many others. Your instinct to boil this down to “political opinions” shows your own bias - since you can’t defend the position itself you must reduce it to “just an opinion”. Anthropogenic climate change is not a political opinion, it’s a real thing that is happening in reality.

          Read the second paragraph again. I explicitly said that I’m not happy about their suffering, regardless of their political opinions.

          It’s just disingenuous to claim that people merely take issue with their opinions when it’s the actions that are the real problem, although that still doesn’t justify schadenfreude.
