Liberal Arguments: My Debate with Salon’s Scott Kaufman, Part 2

Liberal arguments use straw men, assume the argument, and use every distraction available to throw you off the main line of argumentation. Yesterday, I began my criticism of Salon’s Scott Kaufman; I wrote about one of the fallacious tactics he used when we debated on Twitter. Today, I’ll finish off the argument, noting yet another argumentative fallacy Kaufman employed. Kaufman’s second fallacious tactic was what I call “assuming the argument.” Kaufman took what I was attempting to argue, and Read more […]

Amtrak Train Crashed Because Engineer is a Gay Marriage Activist

Should the fact that the Amtrak engineer is a gay marriage activist factor in when considering why the train crashed, killing several and injuring many others? No, I don’t think so. What we know so far is that he was just going way too fast around a 50mph curve. From his own account, it sounds like he blacked out or something. Of course, that’s just his side of the story.

Lewis Rutgers Professor Brittney Cooper recently penned a piece for Salon in which she lambastes the “bigoted” version of Jesus conservatives have allegedly created. She wrote the piece in light of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). The logical faults in Cooper’s piece are an embarrassment of riches, but to write Read more […]

What I’ve Learned In Politics: Don’t Administer Medicine To The Dead When You Can Give It To The Living

In politics, you will be disappointed if you expect people to argue rationally. “The mind of a bigot to the pupil of the eye; the more light you pour on it, the more it contracts.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. I’ve learned a hard lesson over the last two days. Peoples’ perspectives can be absolutely impenetrable to arguments that fall outside their learned logic. It’s not something I haven’t experienced before, but this most recent experience has solidified the notion in my mind. I have a theory, Read more […]
