If you are a liberal these days, you are losing most arguments that are based in facts. Liberals therefore are resorting to the ad hominem attack, which involves attacking the people they oppose instead of their positions.
For example, I say “2+2=4″, to which a liberal responds “No, 2+2=5″. I demonstrate by handing her 2 $2 bills that 2+2=4 and ask her to explain how she can buy a $5 coffee at homosexual supporting Starbucks with just $4. She then explains “Shut up!”. I then walk with her into the Starbucks and ask her to buy herself the $5 coffee with the the gift of my $4 dollars. The Starbucks droid, a free-market capitalist, declines the opportunity to let our liberal buy her coffee at a discount. After our liberal has a little nutty, she turns to me as says, “You are a poopy-head.”, thus crushing me in the iron jaws of her logic and winning the argument. MSNBC has a party.
A similar thing on a larger, and far more vicious scale, happens when conservatives make a pro-life argument. Liberals resort to the ad hominem and call us racists.
Here is a great example I picked up from LifeNews:
Liberal writer: Saving minority babies is racist
BY BEN JOHNSON
WASHINGTON, D.C., September 4, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The pro-life movement’s desire to save children of any race is a secret manifestation of racism and constitutes a war on “minorities and the poor,” according to a writer for The Atlantic.
Brian Fung, who serves as the prestigious magazine’s associate editor, made that claim in an article entitled “The Quiet Racism of Abortion Bans.”
Fung wrote the Republican “war on women” is “really an attack on women of a specific stripe: those from disadvantaged minorities and the poor.”
“An abortion ban would disproportionately affect women from non-white and low-income backgrounds,” he wrote, proving the pro-life movement’s “inherent racial and socio-economic unfairness.”
See how easy that was?
If you are pro-life, you are a racist.
You don’t want to be a racist do you?
How long have you been a racist!?
Therefore, we should all support abortion on demand and also give tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, which was started in order to wipe out black people.
Pro-lifers are racist.
