Quote of the Day:
If you want to understand how that leftist tactic has penetrated deeply into the culture, let me tell you a personal story. Recently, I was involved in an animated discussion with my daughter about her schoolwork. Things got a little heated, and in typical teenage fashion she became flustered when I pointed out some facts about her study habits that she did not like.Dr. Sanity, Like His Grandmother, Perhaps?
"Yeah?" she yelled, "Well you're a....racist!"
Somewhat taken aback at this insertion of this word into our conversation, I must have momentarily appeared deeply shocked, because she abruptly started laughing and the tension was broken. Which, of course, made me laugh too at the ridiculousness of her words.
Still laughing, she said that she had learned at school that the best way to end a discussion you did not like was to accuse the other person of being a 'racist', 'sexist' or 'homophobe.' "Calling someone one of those names is a sure way to end the discussion," she explained with a smile. "Kids at school use it all the time."
Oh, and check the cartoon at the link. Classic!
