The Modern "Argument" Style

If you've ever argued with a lefty, especially on the net, this quote will set you to nodding. It's not just education, of course, but it's a contributing factor. There's nothing new about this. It became popular back in the glorious Sixties, when chanting slogans substituted for reason, and it has since deteriorated even further, to the point where they can't even recognize reason when they see it. Emotion-venting goes without saying — it's all over the place. Motive-questioning seems to be dominant among the defenders of Obama these days. No longer is it their last-ditch argument to say that some stunt he's pulled is opposed because he's Black. It's now usually their first argument, and more often than not, their only argument. And bold assertions? You bet! — Things like asserting that America has more respect than ever now that Obama is President, that the economy has improved wonderfully, that the deficit is down, that Obama is deporting illegals, even while he turns even criminal illegals loose, yadda yadda yadda. And the slogans? "Living wage," "White privilege," "Check your privilege" — You can make your own list, I'm sure.

Quibcag: This quibag I prepared especially for use on the net. You can slip it in whenever you encounter such behavior, which will be frequently. The illustration is Ukyo and Shampoo, of Ranma ½ (らんま½), arguing without the benefit of reason.
