X-Post: Donald Douglas - Reading Comprehension - 05/07/2011 Edition

Because sometimes, the urge to attack the individuals and groups one disagrees with and to portray them as eternally and unfailingly "eeeeevil" overwhelms the ability to pay enough attention to understand what the words and phrases mean, and actually get the story right.

Scott Lemieux says:
"I think the Donalde is trying to make KC Johnson look like the good cop. (I’m hoping KC will send us the full list of governments whose past actions should be exempt from criticism if we are to remain academics in good standing. Am I allowed to say that Andrew Jackson engaged in ethnic cleansing, or do I have to lie about it?)"
Donald Douglas reads what Scott wrote, and replies:
"Yes, Scott, if that’s your position. Not only are you a hypocrite, you’re now admitting you’ll resort to lies."
And even that reaction later morphed into:
"Scott’s a hypocrite and now a self-professed liar..."
