Your regular reminder about arguing in bad faith.

It's not like I haven't pointed y'all at this before, but this blog post should seem vaguely familiar as it's exactly how so many people argue in spectacularly bad faith. A lots of that is going around these days, looking something like this:

You: "I'm glad the federal government invoked the Emergencies Act, to deal with those convoy idiots who had occupied and blockaded downtown Ottawa for three weeks."

Conservative: "Oh, so you don't think people should be allowed to assemble? You don't think people should be allowed to protest and voice their displeasure with the government? Man, you liberals are all the same, you want free speech but you want to stop other people from having theirs. You're such hypocrites!"

Yeah, it's pretty much like that.
