No Place In Society!

Vox Day comes up with some swell ideas. He points out that liberals like to dismiss anything their opponents say with the assertion that "there's no place in society" for people with such opinions, or some variation of that. He's right — they do it all the time. They're definitely into shutting up dissenters by any means necessary, and that includes just about any kind of social sanction they can come up with. And saying that "there's no place in society" for them does that nicely. And of course they mean this literally, doing all they can to exile dissenters by getting them thrown off television, banned from publication, fired from their jobs, and of course silenced by policy in any and all educational institutions. They really mean there's no place for us.

Thing is, we on the right are crippled by our sense of logic, reason, factual accuracy, and fair play. It doesn't occur to us to dismiss people that way, to exile them from humanity for their opinions. We'd rather argue against their opinions rationally and politely. But, it's time to face it — You have to bring a gun to a gunfight. Vox explains his reasoning here:
Quibcag: The townfolk have decided that, because of their dissenting opinions (or something), there is no place in society for Ranma and Akane, from Ranma ½ (らんま½).
