Yes, because you implicitly endorsed that stupidity as the universally accepted
understanding. And because this stupidity is so widely accepted, words have no meaning. It's because you allow this as a valid point, the warhawk neo-cons get away with the strength of the accusation alone without the cogency of an actual argument. Some of my best friends are Jewish
. In the Ta Nehisi Coates / TwinSwords world, this testimony is meaningless.
You infer from the fact that I said that many people make the above invalid inference that I must believe it to be a valid inference.
When will you have the courage to admit that you were wrong?
