120. he is confused about "ad hominem," too
Suggesting that TruthIsAll should be believed because Truth is in his name -- that's an ad hominem argument of sorts, and indeed a silly one. Likening TIA to Niemoller, JFK, or Martin Luther King -- that's mega-meta-ad hominem, or something. It sure isn't an argument about election fraud.

Calling silliness silliness isn't ad hominem. (Even calling good sense silliness isn't ad hominem.)

But it would make things more interesting if someone actually defended TIA's arguments and stuck around to explain why.
