jryan Posted April 9, 2010 Share Posted April 9, 2010 (edited) Given the topic of each thread is effectively the same, with this one focusing on a case instance, it's not derailing the thread. Furthermore, you made the claim: Originally Posted by jryan I think most people here agree that both parties are equally to blame for riling up crowds. So if anyone's doing any derailing, it's you. Furthermore, that's an argument from popularity, a logical fallacy. You made the claim. You back it up. Can you actually demonstrate the equivocacy here, or do you think it can't be measured and therefore we should just assume it's equal? No, because this thread is about the political parties roles in public protest and seeding such protest with anger. The other thread is about levels of party corruption. In both cases you try to make the point that the Republicans are worse. In both cases you are wrong, or fail to make your point adequately. Ironically, here you wade into a thread about which party is more responsible for riling the masses by being the most offensive poster in the thread. So unless you are a Republican, you yourself are contradictory evidence to your claim. Edited April 9, 2010 by jryan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
