Every now and again the Champions of Stupid go that extra mile and do some really creative, impressive self pwnage in their attempts to justify their bigotry.
The following was taken from the comments section of my video; “White Genocide Debunked” and consists of an argument presented by a racist who is attempting to prove that Jews are actually black. The commenter is attempting to do this by examining Judaic lineage according to the Torah and marriages with what the commenter has designated “black tribes”.
I’m going to take a moment to let the full impact of the level of racist fail this commenter has created for a Christian who is a racist.
A moment of silence that is pregnant with the swelling of dismay that grows in the mind of a racist Christian as he realizes that according to this bit of logic presented by this “race warrior”?
That he has just set up the catch-22 that either Jesus is descended of the line of David and thus a black man or he is not descended of the line of David and is therefore a false Prophet who should be scorned and dismissed.
(Enjoys the moment).
Now that the moment of silence and reflection on the level of Racist-Fail has passed I can now respond with the additional comment of;
I decided to post this here because it contains arguments from a commenter from TheFunnyFeminist’s blog about Rush Limbaugh’s verbal attack of Sandra Fluke. It was such a classic example of some amazing use of fallacy that I wanted to keep it close for posterity’s sake.The comments in question were done on January 10th, 2013 by commenter Pheonixjeff and are fairly representative of the kind of noise you get from commenters around the internet.
The following are excerpts from our comments on TheFunnyFeminist’s blog:
Me:Pheonixjeff is pulling a tu quoque fallacy here (in part). The rest;
A. The attack was made against women. Not white women, much as some would like to portray it.
B. Just because others suffer apparently worse discrimination doesn’t mean you can’t comment on an inequality or discriminatory act.
In that case let’s stop discussing all rights issues in America because the Iraqi citizens have had it so badly due to the last ten years of war inflicted on them, shall we? That certainly outweighs any Western suffering!
See how invalid my statement was? Pheonixjeff is doing the same.
I interact with quite a few libertarians of all types on the internet and one of the claims I hear frequently made by some of them is that; “only the federal government can use the force that is intrinsic to Statism. The states are incapable of being a “State” because the federal government is the ultimate power in the United States that has a monopoly on all the force in America.
I’ve taken to calling this; Simplistic libertarianism” because it doesn’t take into consideration the complexity of how a society works, especially one as large as American society. It doesn’t take into account the social contract that exists between the people and the body of law that is the expression of that social contract.
The simplistic libertarian claims to focus on who has the greatest monopoly on force but even in this his view is two dimensional and they’re incredibly selective in how they pick who in fact has that monopoly. If you look at the United States government versus it’s citizenry in terms of who would wipe the other out if the two engaged in all out warfare clearly the United States would be the victor in that contest.
