Arguing in bad faith.

While I have a ton of stuff to say about the mind-scrambling hypocrisy and inconsistency regarding the "Dumbass Convoy" and its brain-dead supporters, here's something you really need to keep in mind, and that is the countless number of yobs who defended those idiots by arguing in bad faith. If you don't know what that means, here's one definition:

Narcissists on the other hand argue in what is sometimes referred to as bad faith. It means that they don't even care about, or try to understand, the other person. Or, even worse, they are dedicated to deliberately misunderstanding and mischaracterizing others, often to the point of absurdity.

Case in point: If you express your fury over the massively intrusive and disruptive occupation of Ottawa by racist, redneck hiillbillies with trucks, it's astonishing how often you hear:

"Oh, yeah? You don't think people have the right to protest? You don't like democracy and freedom of expression? Man, you communist libtards are all the same!"

Rather than point out how astonishingly stupid that sort of response is, well, just go read.

Conservatism should be labelled a mental illness.
One only has to look at the current crop of CPC MPs to confirm that.
