Truer Words

Cliff wonders about crazy anti-government activists sending letters to various governors around the US. He rightly points out that if Jindal isn't "conservative" enough for you, then you may need to reexamine your definition of "conservative."

you won’t have to worry about all those social programs that “real Americans” have such a problem with. They won’t break the budget under President Jindal because he will cut anything. Hospitals, higher education, non profits, and anything else you want to have a tea party for is on the chopping block.

Of course, the money quote:

Governor Jindal actually does all the things Sarah Palin makes speeches about.

To which I can only respond: True, true.

The grievous logical error here is the assumption that the letters originated from a right wing group.

It could have been a single person, not a group, or even a left wing sock puppet.

Apparently the FBI isn't too worried about right wing militia groups. And, contrary to the narrative preferred by the left wing media, we haven't devoid of violence (murder in this case) by the left.

The news article Cliff references says, "The FBI warning comes at a time of heightened attention to far-right extremist groups after the arrest of nine Christian militia members last weekend accused of plotting violence."

But, at least one of the Hutaree members was a Democrat. Just because you're a crazy anti-government activist doesn't mean you're right wing. We saw plenty of that during Bush's administration and before with Bill Ayers.

The ability of many to apply the basic rules of logic is quite disturbing though, especially the part where an invalid assumption makes an invalid argument no matter how perfect the following logic.
