There will be no reasonable dialogue.

It should be clear by now that right-wing extremists, including most right-wing media and blog fora, are completely hardened in their shamelessness, unruly, unprincipled, and irreparable.  They cannot be managed by appeals to reason.    

Does anyone seriously think you have a snowball’s hope in Hell of having a coherent conversation with this woman who thinks repealing DADT caused recent mass die-offs?   She is gone, baby.  Bye, bye.  Never to return to the land of enlightenment.  

The only bumble bee left in the United States is the one buzzing inside the jar of her head.

Attempts at dialogue only make them more feverish and free from moral restraint.  They cannot be reformed by reason, nor do they want to be.  The rejection of modern liberalism is just that: the rejection of reason in favor of idiosyncratic, subjective truths, bugged-out bigotry, personal revelation, and headstrong “my-way-or-the-highway” domineering.  There is no independently verifiable touchstone they accept as an assay for the mutually agreeable truths.

Happy New Year, from Townhall:


By Jove, whatever happened to America’s ethic of solidarity?

  1. eleven.

  2. and violent rhetoric that matters, but what is “missing” from the debate, according to Erick Erickson:

    I am tired of talking about the Arizona shooting. The left has done its best to try to pin it on the right. We know now that not only was Loughner of the left before he went nuts, but that, in fact, Loughner was nuts.

    His actions can be pinned on neither the left nor the right.

    All of the media handwringing over the “tone” in the country and the “extremist rhetoric” distracts from and implies that the tone and rhetoric had something to do with Jared Loughner’s rampage.

    It did not.

    By continuing to discuss this topic, the media continues to imply that it did.

    We also know Barack Obama’s advisors are urging him to seize the moment and join the left in blaming the right for this violence. Not only is that disgusting, but should he, the media wringing their hands about the tone better call him out on it – but I won’t hold my breath.

    Through it all though, well meaning people on both sides of the ideological and partisan divide are not talking about the one thing that should be talked about – a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

    Look, Tom Delay can’t show contrition for something he doesn’t think he did.  Bush says we won’t know for generations if he fucked up or not.  And Scalia just says “get over it.”

    There is never a place for reasoned judgment with right-wing extremists.  Put your saving faith in Jesus, instead, as they tear the place apart.

    It’s kind of an old “new romantic” look clearly her intention is to be garish like the hustler she is. Maybe she believes what she’s saying but I doubt she gives belief or thoughts much room in her brain.

    too many people out of love
