    Asking you to clarify your position is "strawman bait"?

    When you can't win an argument simply toss out as many logical fallacies you don't understand as you can. You're sure to win that way!

    Well, I've got you ticked down for strawman and ad hominem with my brief interactions with you so far. If you can't see how creating a position for me to argue against isn't a strawman, I can help you out there!

    noun: strawman
    1. an intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent's real argument.

    I'll make this super duper easy for you.

    Clarify your position; are ALL of them in the wrong for wearing black makeup, or just that one kid because he is also wearing white makeup?

    My position is that Republicans treat blackface differently depending on the political alignment of the accused blackfacer.

    Gee, almost as if that whole "strawman" argument was just a deflection, kind of like your "But the white makeup!!!" was also a deflection in the first place.

    Well, you did create a position for me - while using a thinly veiled cover-up asking me to "clarify" my position that I clearly stated in my first post.

    But before that, you parroted ultra right-wing talking points at me regarding the Covington boys - not your opinions, but word for word talking points probably designed by a superpac or conservative think-tank, so you made your position on the issue instantly known.

    So, after our little discussion on minstrelsy, are you willing to walk back any of your comments?

    When you going to clarify your position? Are all of the kids in the wrong for wearing black makeup, or just the one kid because he's also wearing white makeup?

    When are you left wing terrorists/never-Trumpers/whatever you consider yourself to be going to understand I am immune to your deflection attempts? time4fun and Androidpk were the queen and queen of deflection, you ain't got shit on those two.

    Yes. Wearing blackface is racist. It's even more racist when you employ minstrelsy techniques to make your caricature have exaggerated features. How is that even a question?

    Also, I'm a terrorist now? That's funny, because domestic terrorism has increased significantly since Obama was in office, and nearly all incidents of domestic terrorism are perpetuated by right-wing actors.
