Some fun with the brain-dead Left
I don't get a lot of emails or blog comments from Leftists but those I do get are invariably abusive. Most conservative bloggers have that experience, I gather. But sometimes the abuse is unintentionally amusing.
I recently got an email from an apparently Australian person named Leigh Williams (email@example.com) who gave his mobile phone no. as 0405205252. He started his first email with something I certainly believe: "I don't know anything about the specifics of climate change science". But there was no rational argument or presentation of facts after that. It was just abuse. So it was solid "ad hominem" abuse.
But here's the funny bit: What did he accuse me of? He accused me of "ad hominem abuse"! That good old Leftist projection cut in good and hard!
He appeared to be upset that I had spoken ill of someone but did not say whom. Since he mentioned climate however, I imagine he might be referring to my comments on writings by climate fraudster Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick. I put up her university picture and called her "gorgeous" in a subtitle to it. That is abuse? Calling someone "gorgeous" is abuse? Leigh Williams is certainly in a mental fog. But most of the Green/Left seem to be in a permanent mental fog.
In any case, there is no reason why Leftists should have any monopoly of criticizing others. If you offer facts and arguments to justify a poor opinion of someone else's words and doings, anybody is entitled to do that. When you offer no facts and arguments but proceed straight to abuse that is what is called "ad hominem abuse". And I did offer facts and figures in support of my disagreement with Ms. Perkins-Kirkpatrick.
