I noted on Greenie Watch recently the low quality of Green/Left argumentation. Almost all of it is ad hominem abuse or appeals to authority. Any interest in the facts of a matter is conspicuously absent. I am sure that most conservative bloggers find the same in emails that they get from Leftists.
Just for fun, however, I thought I might put up here the latest such email that I have received from a Leftist. As per usual it is pure abuse and full of hate. It comes from an Allan Blackburn [firstname.lastname@example.org].
I was reading your anti health care blog in America, when I came upon the fact that you are from Australia, have been married four times, and are about as redneck as they come. Please stay in Australia. If you are an example of someone who is professing to tell Americans how to live, with your value system as it is, where marriage is an institute of; “Love for the moment,” please stay in Australia and focus your attentions on your own issues as well as your countries.
You remind me of Rush Limbaugh who has spread conservative hate mongering, against drug addiction, until he was caught engaging in illegal doctor shopping and then screamed; “I have a disease,” and demanded the need to go to treatment which he denied to others for years.
They must have a mold that turns out people like you. Every fifth person, popping out of the womb, instant A-hole. Thanks for the laughs.
If that is an example of Leftist brains, no wonder America is in such a mess at the moment. I also note that even a Ph.D. who disagrees with him is a “redneck” apparently: A typical example of how Leftists use words for their abusive impact rather than their meaning.
Mr Blackburn is apparently in the business of “detoxing” druggies and alcoholics. One wonders if such a hate-filled and angry person is really appropriate in that role.
