Ho ho ho -yes indeed, you always you you must be on the correct track when the right start getting annoyed with you. I got a citation on Tuesday here. Apparently it is precisely people like me that is why the Left are not getting elected in the US. That amused me greatly that did because if I didn’t have delusions of grandeur before I think I might decide to have some now! Anyway since he has kindly introduced all his right-wing friends to me and as they say no publicity is bad publicity I thought it only fair to repay the debt.

This is of course the result of being in the hot blogs list and perhaps also a little to do with me having gone fascho-baiting the other day, well I was bored and ill and I felt like stirring up some shit and it didn’t take me long to find a very stinky pile of it here. The whole blog was pretty offensive but the entry about the death of Yassr Arafat and especially some of the comments was the most staggering and to be honest it would have been criminal not to have left a comment.

What I find interesting is that I am not over-confident in my debating ability nor my grasp of socio-political and economic history and yet to actually get these people to respond and have a genuine discussion about things seems impossible. I mean I don’t want to be presumtuous but whenever someone shys from debate it casts serious questions as to the validity of their argument, of course I am happy to listen to any rebuttal of this and debate it properly. I like nothing more than a good verbal punch up about politics, but the key is that I don’t feel the need to resort to insults and I won’t tolerate anyone else doing so. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again you have the right to your opinion provided it is researched and informed and not intolerant of that same right in others. The trouble is almost without exception the only people I know that conform to that principle are on the left.

Reasoned discussion is as rare as reason these days. As with any tenet of faith, if it cannot withstand scrutiny and doubt, what the hell good is it? Be it god or the GOP, it’s the same.

Oh, in the end if it ever looks like you are winning an argument against a American rightwinger, they often end up saying ‘We saved Europe from the Nazis, why are you not greatfull?’
