This is generally where I stand. And the cesspool of websites, podcasts, channels and now apps devoted to the reds is impressively terrible. And there's a strong belief in what they're selling: the least oppressed group of assclowns in history swear they aren't getting a fair shake because now instead of things being totally rigged in their favor, things are only somewhat rigged but occasionally someone else gets a turn for a bit sometimes. Oh and the media teases them and their rich/powerful pawpaw sometimes for being casually terrible.

And you're very right: poo pooing an offer doesn't work if you don't have a counter offer.
