1. this should be good



Explanation
The genetic fallacy is committed when an idea is either accepted or rejected because of its source, rather than its merit.
Even from bad things, good may come; we therefore ought not to reject an idea just because of where it comes from, as ad hominem arguments do.
Equally, even good sources may sometimes produce bad results; accepting an idea because of the goodness of its source, as in appeals to authority, is therefore no better than rejecting an idea because of the badness of its source. Both types of argument are fallacious.

3. Anything goes in the gungeon!

Except for pointing out how much racism there is in the gun culture. That's crossing a line! Let's not get crazy!

6. Ted Nugent is a moron.

I doubt you'll find many that argue against that. I believe the point is that if you try to broad brush paint gun owners as racist because of the actions of a few morons, then you are indeed crossing the line.

7. He is an icon of the gun culture and an NRA board member.

As much as you try to pretend that the gun culture is just about marksmanship and technology, it is a fact that it is very right-wing. The gun nuts at the NRA conference in that video seemed pretty excited about what Nugent was saying.

Of course, I'm sure that any gun nuts trolling DU is going to be smart enough to pretend not to like Ted Nugent. But over at FR I'm sure they're a lot more open about their loyalties.
