I’m told by people I quite respect that the Left and the Right are equally responsible for the degradation of political discourse in this country.


Show me, honestly, a counter example to this from the Right:

Show me a mob of masked thugs walk right into a public place and nearly murder a man in broad daylight without so much as an arrest.

I understand the desire for neutrality when both sides don’t represent your specific politics.  But to say that both sides are equally vile in the public space is to be willfully blind.

Men hidden in black masks are assaulting people in broad daylight on a regular basis.  There is nothing similar happening from the other side, primarily because the media only gives cover to one side.

It MUST stop.  Period.  And pretending a strongly worded letter at AoSHQ is equivalent is absurd.

    … I liked the end part of the video… after knocking the guy unconscious, taunting this unconscious guy as a nazi, after the police came and gently asked the angry protesters to move back… that the protesters start clapping loudly and chanting “peaceful protest” … maybe to convince themselves and others on video that the were peaceful rather than an angry mostly peaceful mob…?

      They have these behavioral tics that seem (to me) to strongly suggest they are very, very coordinated. As soon as they do something violent (inevitably) they shout “peaceful protest” to confuse/disarm the responding law enforcement.

      But jeez, the punch that knocked that guy out was easily fatal. Then to see those super tough-guy masked assholes taunting what, for all they know, is a corpse: too much for me.

    I’ve tried to like Coyote blog, but then I read something that I just can’t take.
    Like that post, where he blames ‘both sides’.

    That’s abrogating your responsibility. If each side calls the other a liar, you can take the easy way out and say, “They’re both lying!” or you can figure out if both sides are lying.

    If I claim to have an opinion, I try to figure it out.

      He is among the many ‘reasonable people’ I read with whom I often disagree. His work on Climate Change is rather brilliant and worth following, at least to me.

      But yes, he’s a hands-in-the-air, “a pox on both your houses” type of guy that you usually see when somebody wants to abrogate any responsibility for their preferences because they never GET their preferences. It is often a very advantageous social position to respond to any criticism with “you are all just as bad.” It allows you to ignore any specific incident that might, after review, force you to pick a side.

      Like if King Solomon was serious about cutting that baby in half.

        His global worming posts are how I found him.
        I mostly skim anymore to see if something interests me.
        I’d have to write posts like this if I did more.

    Yep. Cutting Warden’s post before the “two words: Memories Pizza,” was, consciously or not, a completely dishonest dowdification done solely so that he could shoehorn the post, Procrustes-style, into his own preconceived (and facile) notions.
