297. What was being discussed was what was proper for discussion.
Edited on Thu May-18-06 01:01 PM by Inland
Unless someone wants to assert that nobody should be offended by an analogy that is false and submitted for the purposes of being insulting, then OF COURSE it's offensive. I'm not sure what human being could disagree that a false analogy made for the pupose of being dismissive and insulting should not be considered fair, or assert that those who object on those grounds be called whiney.

And when that someone appears, he can also tell me that the veracity of analogies is irrelevant, so I can tell him Hitler said the exact same thing about jews and watch him sputter in one of those delicious ironies that only R/T can bring about.
