From An Angry Reader:
American women of every age would like old white men like you, Trump, Alito and more, to take your worn out dirty boots off of our necks! Your high opinion of Trump, a congenital liar, a narcissist, a fraud and a sociopathic misogynist says all we need to know about you. I began voting Republican in 1968 and did so for 47 years, until Trump! I have, along with millions, left the Party. Yes indeed, I am “woke.” Not the woke dog whistle weaponized by the Right! You are too blind, too old and too clueless to even realize how absurd you are. Of course, that is my opinion. January 6 was at the invitation of a childish, Autocratic, poorly educated buffoon who thought “I can do anything I want.” Your support for that corrupt Former Guy is my reason to see you as a fool, a toady, and a man who has thrown integrity and credibility in the trash. Enjoy your sick legacy.
Dear Angry Reader Barbara Cullen,
Ms. Cullen, somehow you manage to hit all the Angry Reader familiar targets with your blunderbuss, but there is not a single coherent argument or any analyses why anyone could be persuaded by you?
Ad hominem in place of an argument: “Old white men like you”; “Your dirty boots”; You are blind…clueless…absurd”; “a fool”; “a toady”; “your sick legacy.” I don’t know what your obsession is with such a string of invectives, but had you just presented one fallacy that I wrote, and then offered counter-evidence and facts, then you would not have needed to embarrass yourself with such personal smears.
Paranoia: “Take your worn out dirty boot off our necks.” How exactly are you victimized by anyone in general, and in particular by what I write?
Personal Voice Narcissism in lieu of any argument: “I began voting…”; “I have, along with millions…”; “I am woke.” Why the I, I, I emphatics in lieu of an argument?
Concocted Fantasies: Your incoherent notion of January 6… (See below)
You predicate your anger entirely on a vote for one of two candidates? (e.g., “my reason”). If we were all to do that, we would have to write off 80 million Americans. Instead, why not just compare the Trump years with the first 9 months of the Biden administration, and then make a determination of what constitutes foolishness? Is the border more humane and secure? Is Afghanistan better off? The U.S. reputation abroad more reliable? Is the economy stronger, the labor force more productive, prices more manageable? Are we better off energy wise, and fuel more affordable for the American consumer? Did we finally find evidence to prove Russian collusion, that Hunter Biden’s laptop was a product of Russian “disinformation,” or that January 6 was an armed insurrection?
As for the latter, not one arrested was in possession of a firearm. Five died, but four were Trump supporters, two of whom died of natural causes, and one was trampled or crushed to death at a police barricade. The fourth was an unarmed female military veteran, shot by an officer for entering the Capitol. The name of the officer was hidden for months, in atypical fashion, and thousands of hours of video that might have shed light on the regrettable day have not been released by the government. Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes; he was not murdered by Trump supporters as alleged for weeks by the media and the Left. Nor has any rioter or demonstrator been charged yet with conspiracy or insurrectionary activity. Most are likely to be charged and convicted of criminal trespassing and illegal parading, or felonious damage to federal property. And if there is evidence to warrant such charges, then they will be rightfully convicted.
Life is too short to become full of hate and it only results in embarrassing outbursts like these. Forget about Trump, calm down, and try to analyze rather than vent.
