Re: “Crooked Hillary

The uranium tale was nonsense when the NYT "reported" it, and remains nonsense today.

Re: “Conspiracy theories

Here's the business end of the Politifact article cited above by Vanessa:

"Newsweek's claim is literally accurate. But it's worth noting the imprecision of this data, and the percentage of mass shootings by white men is lower than their share of the male population, according to Mother Jones. "

It's not clear to me why people seem so invested in the myth that white men are disproportionately responsible for these dreadful events, but it's simply not true.

Re: “Trump and sports

Odd, then, that Trump showed comparatively little indignation when Charlottesville marchers carried Swastikas, don't you think?

Re: “Sex on campus

The author calls rape "a vile crime deserving heavy prison time."

Comments dismiss this as a "boys will be boys" point of view.

Any wonder why things have gotten out of hand on some campuses?

Re: “Sex on campus

Here we see a "social scientist" who begins with an ad hominem argument, and then proceeds directly to made-up straw man quotes completely misrepresenting Lyons' actual argument before returning to personal attack.

In short, a veritable masterpiece of illogic.

That's one professor I wouldn't care to have investigating a parking ticket, much less anybody's intimate life, thank you.

Re: “Death reported of Robert Johnston, former legislator and homeless advocate

This is very sad. Robert was a fine man.

Re: “Infantile Antifa

Deadseasquirrel needs to work on reading comprehension. He accuses Lyons of suppressing facts that appear directly above.

It's also very foolish to say that "pacifism" failed in Germany during the 1930s. Quite the opposite. Violent clashes between Brownshirts, Communists, trade unionists, etc. in Berlin and elsewhere greatly facilitated Hitler's rise to power. This is not controversial.

Steven E disagrees with the Boston press about who staged the city's "free speech" rally. It was an "alt-right" spectacle that failed:
