As I was formulating a response for this post at BAGnews, I was struck by the collision between two presumptions held by the Modern American Left:
I’d say “isn’t that a bit odd?” but I’ve long since learned that double think is very common among the MAL. Still, it does suggest a nice counter attack to a standard rhetorical attack. So, I tried it out.
Overall, I’d judge it a success. The result was to be accused of being “intimidating” and told that my future posts would be ignored.
It’s nice to have a good collection of standard counter attacks like this. It’s kind of like tuning one’s spam filters to block out the spammers, although the spammers seem much better at coming up with new stuff than the MAL.
