About a week ago I visited a blog site of young women whose ideas aren’t exactly the same as mine. Her post an open letter to Tea Baggers / Tea Partiers was interesting although in my mind not well thought out. I responded in the comment section. I was polite and respectful. I pointed out differences and finished with a mild rebuke of using the term tea bagger as simply not useful to the argument and took away from what could be at least arguable points.
As is the standard for most liberal blogs the comment was never posted. A discussion isn’t what liberals want. To actually have to defend their position they’d have to explain it and that is very difficult without just throwing out talking points and fuzzy logic.
I am certainly not always right but I do challenge my readers to prove me wrong. If I am then fine I’ll change. We may disagree but that’s doesn’t mean a discussion can’t take place. Of course if you think Che Guevara was a great guy we probably don’t have much to discuss anyway.
No I won’t post the web site. wouldn’t make a difference.
