Follow the sadly predictable trajectory here, folks…
- Wingnut blog attacks a Forbes author’s economic analysis, and belittles him as a ‘college dropout’
- The blog author(s) are challenged to produce their own academic bona fides in a comment to their post.
- Their response? They delete the comment.
So, when reading anything that does not support the wingnut viewpoint, it’s perfectly relevant to discuss and disparage the author’s educational background. When reading the work of the wingnuts themselves, you’re not even allowed to ask them about their academic background.
Those who follow a far right political philosophy in the US can be fairly characterized as sharing two primary traits: dishonesty and cowardice.
