Can the preaching on amnesty get any more hysterical? According to Google, argumentum ad passiones is “a logical fallacy which uses the manipulation of the recipient’s emotions, rather than valid logic, to win an argument.” This fallacy is also known as “appeal to emotion.” This argumentative tactic is one of the most frequently used by the left.
