  •  It's about believing lies (2+ / 0-)

    As I see it, the diarist's point wasn't about people being stupid or evil for believing in gun rights or federalism.

    It's about the people who tell lies, and the folks who believe or pretend to believe them.

    Like "massive tax increases".  "Death panels".  "Obama not American".  "Global warming a hoax".

    Political philosophy is one thing.  Lies are another.  Lies about easily checkable things.  To believe or propagate them is evil or stupid.  To exploit one's audience's ignorance is explicitly evil:  "do not put a stumbling block before the blind".
