Or better yet? ‘McVeigh-ing’: My NEW Taki’s column
Last one for the year. I don’t think the comments will be super “JOOOOOO!!!!!”-y but I’ve been wrong before…
Confronted with still another example of reality’s refusal to conform to their theories, they reflexively mouth something like “But what about the Crusades/Hitler/the Spanish Inquisition/insert another inapt historical analogy here?”
Like Cole, I’ve encountered this annoying progressive tic far too often on Twitter and elsewhere. Countering these counterfactual comebacks is easy now that I’ve created a handy Evernote “cheat sheet” from which I cut and paste weaponized links about those topics above. The one about the inarguably anti-Christian Hitler Youth leader’s manual makes for a particularly effective virtual ball gag.
