Richard Goodstein was on the O’reilly Factor tonight and was defending Hillary Clinton. The first thing he said was an equivocation based on a fundamental attribution error which is characterizing Trump as a Liar when, in spite of people constantly asserting that he is a liar he has been vindicated after every accusation and no proof has been presented proving that he lied, or attempted to mislead intentionally. When he misspeaks because he doesn’t use a teleprompter they say that he lied. When he uses the wrong nomenclature or he is vague or non specific they insist that he lied.
Eric Bolling held his feet to the fire and didn’t let him excuse bad behavior with assumed bad behavior and his red herring. Goodstein proceeds with the second strategy B saying that people don’t watch Arabic TV so they don’t know whether it is true or not. This is an obfuscation, it is either demonstrably true or it is emphatically false and the truth of the matter is that the answer is already known. My advocates monitor the blogs from all over the world and some of my advocates do speak Arabic and Farsi here is one of the translations of their news program Click here for link! . First of all, Arabic Television isn’t ISIS recruiting videos, so this is a tacit conflation of two different subjects. Secondly this is an argument from the ignorance of the average person in America, it suggests sense people in general don’t know it is not known. Which is to say it isn’t true one way or another.
When confronted with the fact that there currently are terrorist recruitment videos with Obama and Bill Clinton he uses and argument that he can’t logically use because it contradicts his own position that if a person is being used in recruitment videos they are doing something wrong and are aiding in terrorist recruitment. He asks if it is being suggested that people shouldn’t contradict terrorist ideology because they might be used in recruitment videos. This leading question falsifies all of his former position. He can’t make this argument.
Liberals are creepy, disgusting, arrogant, and consciously evil. They are so stupid that they don’t realize that everybody sees through their horse shit now. You Godless, Lawless, Evil Doers can’t Wag the Dog anymore…
