This piece of zany bigotry was in my spam folder.
Please enlarge the image to read it.
The comment illustrates everything that makes Trump’s supporters more frightening than Trump.
It also illustrates my earlier post on the topic of irrational arguments:
I will dissect the central thesis of what I loosely call his argument.
Let’s start with this: “You see equality to be equal does in mater of fact remove the right[s] to have freedom and liberty. Would you be willing to give that up?”
So, if everyone is equal before the law someone has to give up a right?
Do you mean the right to abuse people you don’t like?
As for what I’d give up: I give up accepting the premise that you have the right to abuse me based on race, gender, and sexual orientation.
I give up tax dollars to restore funding to the public schools your parents voted to close which is why you don’t know how to use reason.
And this line: “Now transgenders will take away all freedom and liberty as it is doing right now in the United States of America.”
If transgenders are taking away all the freedom and liberty in the United States they are the most powerful women in the World!
And this: “The civil liberties union would like to do the very same thing, for their cause to enslave all of the United States of America in order to bring in Communism.”
Here is the argument:
“It is these reason why we must and have no other choice but to show you that the civil liberty union, transgender, same-sex marriage, liberals/democrats/Marxist/Communist/Socialist are all the same. My cite[s] are these three books. “The Defense of Wisconsin 2006 Marriage Amendment (Thesis) by Terry Virgil 07/09 /2014, What is wrong with Cal. Const. amend.chap.85. § § 221.5 (a)(b)(c)(d)(e)(f)? (Thesis) By Terry Virgil, Freedom and Liberty by Terry Virgil”
I won’t address equating liberalism and the Democratic Party with Marxism, communism and socialism.
I don’t even think he knows what these words mean.
He cites Terry Virgil.
He has an Associates degree in Business Management
He is also a railroad conductor and small business owner who served in the Marines.
Terry Virgil’s opinions about the rights of #LGBTQ people are not facts.
Opinions have no place in discussions of government and law.
Democracy requires the use of reason and a willingness to compromise and to admit to being wrong.
Conservatives think opinion is more important than fact.
The writer will not give me a fact-based argument and so he is gonged.
Back to the spam folder with him.
