109. what a remarkably inapposite analogy
TIA was banned from DU for repeated violations of DU rules. Whether or not one agrees with the banning, it hardly seems to parallel politically motivated assassinations. As admin EarlG posted back in August 2005, "...I would encourage those of you who are pissed off about his banning to direct your comments to TIA himself. He made the decision to ignore repeated Admin warnings, and we see no reason why he should not be held accountable for his behavior just like anyone else who posts on DU."

But the irony here is that no one besides TIA himself has lifted a finger to support TIA's actual arguments. It's an odd sort of "Truth" that doesn't bear defending. If TIA's arguments are any good, why can no one else make them? Why the heavy reliance on misappropriated victimhood?
