On the subject of bigotry, Andrew Sullivan proffers the most flawlessly Conservative argument imaginable.
Namely, that his own previous statements on the subject simply do not exist.
Mr. Sullivan now:
"We have not won the debate this past decade or so because we have constantly exposed others’ hatred, or racked up the number of people we can condemn as homophobes. ... Of course there’s bigotry and ignorance out there. But calling everyone who disagrees with you a bigot rules out a chance to persuade them, drives them further into a defensive crouch, and prevents us winning the argument in the long run."Mr. Sullivan then:
-- Andrew Sullivan, 04/08/14
"Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot"And not just a bigot, but:
-- Andrew Sullivan, 11/14/13.
"Yes, Alec Baldwin Is A Homophobic Bigot"
-- Andrew Sullivan, 11/15/13
"And this raging, violent bigot cannot be defended any longer."As Mr. Sullivan vanishes completely up his own ass, words fail.
So this will have to do.
