The Apostles of Anger in their echo chamber of fallacies have branded [Obama] the enemy. This has now become an article of faith. Obama isn’t just the enemy of small government and national solvency. He’s the enemy of liberty.
This underscores the current fight for the soul of this country. It’s not just a tug of war between left and right. It’s a struggle between the mind and the heart, between evidence and emotions, between reason and anger, between what we know and what we believe.
this is a fine crytallization of where today's left is at. there is no argument at all, just continual, insufferable self-congratulation. the fact that you assert every day that you are smarter than your opponents doesn't make you smarter than your opponents. insults are not arguments, which is something you should learn from limbaugh, if you get me: your rhetorical level and his are identical. the accusation of rage etc - that you run on emotion while we run on reason - is just ridiculous. first off, nothing wrong with anger in politics, for god's sake. second: what you say and how you say it enacts precisely anger: a breathtaking performative contradiction. there is nothing in this piece but...propaganda, agitation, insult. then to represent yourself as the apostle of reason is...mind-numbing.
one central idea is that the views of blow's opponents are manipulated: the "echo chamber" effect. this is part of the presentation in which left=reason and right=emotion. well then i suggest you listen to obama throwing down the anecdotes about bankrupt unemployed people trying to get healthcare for their kids etc. and if the left's opinions were less manipulated or echochambery than the right's, i think they'd be less incredibly unanimous than they are. they wouldn't all be saying the same words in same order.
