In this silly story by the B— Weiss derpsite, an interesting tidbit: high school debaters can now—
look up her judge’s name on Tabroom, a public database maintained by the NSDA… where judges post [their] “paradigms”… Debate judge Shubham Gupta’s paradigm reads, “If you are discussing immigrants in a round and describe the person as ‘illegal,’ I will immediately stop the round, give you the loss with low speaks”… Judge Kriti Sharma concurs: under her list of “Things That Will Cause You To Automatically Lose,” number three is “Referring to immigrants as ‘illegal.’”
Good! Better that you know and can cater to the judge’s beliefs than taking a silent loss, like in the old days. Always adapt to the judge.
After tarring this as safe space, guess what the OP did :D
I gave up on the NSDA and formed a new debate league, Incubate Debate. To judge debates, we recruit elected officials, members of the armed forces, business executives, faith-based leaders
Every attack a confession.
You don’t think we had to adapt to conservative mom judges back in the day? You get the judges you get, you have to adapt to win. This ex-debater is soft, essay’s an embarrassing bid for white-grievance wingnut welfare :D
