There's blood in the water, so why not? Amirite?
Uhoh, I think someone's starting to get a clue.

But... <switches to Zoom's holier-than-thou voice>... MAYBE they are INNOCENT, MAYBE they should be assumed to be INNOCENT, MAYBE you HAVE to assume they're INNOCENT or else you're doing something WRONG and you're EVIL and BAD and I HATE YOU!! OMG! OMG! LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!!!!!!!!!

<ahem>

Yes, let's do a quick rehash of the conversation. With, you know, actual quotes of what was being said.

Side One: "Just because the accuser took back the accusation doesn't mean it wasn't a true accusation. It just means he decided to take it back for whatever reason." A simple and obvious observation of what happened.
Side Two: "But, no, it can't be that. We couldn't possibly live in a world where people are innocent. It's just easier to think the worst of people." A random rant out of the blue (with the main rant snipped out because the ALL CAPS is so damn annoying, as proven above).
Side One: "Also, it's less 'happy' about being right and more 'happy' that a holier-than-thou type was proven wrong despite the aforementioned obviousness" An admittedly snide response to the aforementioned random rant.
Side Two: "Really? He is a 'Holier Than Thou Type'? So, you've met him? You've watched a lot of interviews with him? Or is this just more of your "I'd rather be cynical" behavior? Or is ALL of the cast of Sesame Street a "Holier Than Thou Type? Now that you mention it, Mr. Snuffaluggagus, he DOES get sorta preachy. Fuck that imaginary elephant." More demonstration of the obliviousness of the preacher man to justify the irrational ranting. Yarr!
Side Three: "Oh for the days of innocent until proven guilty." Another poster stating simply what Side Two was probably? trying to say, but without the histrionics.
Side One: "That's an edict for law and punishment, not personal opinion." Which is expanded on, albeit a bit more sarcastically, in another post to another poster later.
Side Two: "People are arrested because there's evidence, and then they go to trial where it is DETERMINED guilt or innocence. All of this stuff you've been talking about, just idle chatter. Like old women on a porch passing judgement on people as they walk by. And treating it like a joke." And preacher man almost catches on, but somehow goes back off the rail at the very end, reading a joke somewhere it never was. At least not in the conversation he was taking place in, anyway.

Hey, look, it's amazing what happens when someone pays attention to what's going on around them rather than just reading what they want to read to justify their hysterics.

That said, I love how people like him are assuming the victims/accusers are guilty rather than innocent of a crime no one has even accused them of. The irony is delicious. Defend the pedos, damn the kids! Rabble rabble rabble!
