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 […]

Liberal Arguments: My Debate with Salon’s Scott Kaufman, Part 1

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.” – Dale Carnegie I had a piece planned for today, but last night, I had a Twitter debate with Scott Eric Kaufman of Salon that perfectly illustrates illogical liberal argumentation. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to break down our debate into its component parts to show you how the left argues. It all started when I wrote a piece critical of Scott Kaufman and his seeming support of Planned Read more […]

Salon’s Scott Kaufman Seems to Really Like Margaret Sanger

In a piece for Salon, Scott Eric Kaufman railed against Sarah Palin for suggesting Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a racist proponent of eugenics, saying: “…she selectively quotes from Sanger’s voluminous body of work the same three half-sentences that every pro-life advocate uses to back up the claim that ‘[s]he was a white supremacist in her beliefs.'” Later, Kaufman once again defended Sanger in a piece about Ben Carson: “Carson replied that he would encourage people to read Read more […]

Salon on Charleston Mass Murder: “Is Something Wrong With the White Family? Why are Their Sons and Men so Violent?”

The article on Salon was headlined “Charleston church massacre: The violence white America must answer for,” and the subheadline asked, “Where are the white fathers? When will white leaders step up? Charleston reveals our racial double standard.” The article goes all out with blaming “White America” for the mass murder that took place at the black Charleston church. The questions that the author Chauncey DeVega asks throughout his article, and the statements he makes are just like Read more […]

Salon’s Jenny Kutner Lies about Scott Walker, Gets 15,000 Shares

It’s been said that a lie told often enough becomes the truth. The quote itself has murky origins, but regardless of where it came from, it has been proven true time and time again. Repetition removes all doubt by chipping away at the truth until it no longer exists. Salon’s Jenny Kutner penned a hit-piece on Wisconsin Governor and presumed Presidential candidate Scott Walker Wednesday, in which she tells a patent lie. Now, this is not unusual behavior for Salon, as they’ve been known to lie Read more […]

Salon’s Joan Walsh Calls ‘White’ Praise of Toya Graham ‘Sickening’

Winston Churchill said that “the best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” I would like to modify that a bit, and say that the best argument against democracy is a brief perusal of any Salon article. Salon’s editor at large Joan Walsh published a piece Wednesday titled: “The hideous white hypocrisy behind the Baltimore ‘Hero Mom’ hype: How clueless media applause excuses police brutality.” There’s a tremendous amount of idiocy to digest in this Read more […]

Salon Writer Smears Troops, Calls Patriotism “Chauvinistic,” “Totalitarian”

A Salon writer attacks the U.S. Military. “It’s been 70 years since we fought a war about freedom. Forced troop worship and compulsory patriotism must end.” – David Masciotr In a November 9th piece for Salon, David Masciotra decried “forced” respect, and support of troops as chauvinistic, nationalist, and totalitarian. As I quoted above, he seems to believe that the war is what makes the soldier. His definition of a soldier who should be supported is predicated on the war in which the soldier Read more […]

Liberal Journalist Hopes Boston Bomber is White

Ann Coulter said: “Liberals become indignant when you question their patriotism, but simultaneously work overtime to give terrorists a cushion for the next attack and laugh at dumb Americans who love their country and hate the enemy.” The Liberals in this country are inscrutable. They try at every turn to give the massive terrorist network (Al-Qaeda) the benefit of some doubt. As if there is any doubt. They try shamelessly to link attacks, like the Oklahoma City bombing, to a wide network of “right-wing Read more […]
