so saying something to imply something else, while giving absolutely no context to the reasons for the statement, is providing context? seems like it'd be warping it with unclear information.
if you're going to bring up a quote like that, you have to say WHY he says it otherwise you're not providing any context at all. you seem to be a smart guy, you should know that.
Now he's trying to reflect and cover himself.
He tells you in Sovngarde that his rebellion was shortsighted and foolish
What part of this is implying anything? Rebel is adding to the conversation by providing something that Ulfric himself said. Notice Rebel isn't saying whether he thinks Ulfric is a hero or not? Or did that fly over your head while you were trying to belittle someone? That is why we are "ganging up on you", because you made yourself (once again) look like an ass by taking what Rebel posted out of context and trying to start an argument. --- "What would I do for a Klondike Bar? I'd nude-model for Celestia. Yeah. I'm serious."
Ulfric is not a true hero as he is very racist to anything not Nord, they even show this many times in Windhelm that he is all up in arms when its a Nord problem but lets any other race deal with it on their without lifting a finger to help them. What kind of "hero" forces the Dunmer to live in the slums, banishes Argonians to live outside in the outskirts of Windhelm, and refuses to send aid of any kind to the Khajiit caravans or any non Nord town raided by bandits ?!
He might be a "hero" to the Nords but to everyone else he is a prejudiced tool who doesn't care about any other race. I remember a few figures from real history similar to him, we call them tyrants. --- "Always two there are, a master and an apprentice"
