I don't get it? Why the hate? Because he is an indie but isn't a closet Democrat? Because he disagrees with the Atlas hivemind?

Precisely. Anybody who challenges the established 'opinion' on here doesn't really get a fair shake.

If Wulfric was a moderate but defended his positions with something other than utter silliness, I would be cool with Wulfric.

Basically.  I'd prefer him to be a full-blown fundy who based all of his arguments on the Bible.  At least then he'd be consistent rather than take ridiculous halfway positions.

Because he has quite a bit of breadth to most of his opinions, but most politically inclined people who listen to his arguments (see: most of Atlas) can see that there is no depth - only talking points. Defending our resident segregationist troll doesn't help either.

Perhaps if Wulfric wasn't objectively not smart he'd be more popular here.

On that note, however, Wulfric is still a better poster than FREEDOMHAWK

Exactly. Atlas really doesn't like his talking points infecting all our threads dedicated to Think Progress headlines.

The anti-same sex marriage stuff probably doesn't help.

It's not even that. What irritates me is that he tries to pass off actual right-wing views and moves to the right of the general consensus as "moderation". To be honest, he's not a "horrible person" - it's just that he's more of a Kelly Ayotte than an Andrew Cuomo (which I find honestly more irritating than actual moderate heroes).

Intelligence and the ability to be logical are loosely connected, at best.

Take a look at Ben Carson, for example.
