  •  LOL (0+ / 0-)

    You're still overreaching.  I find it amusing that you go from the specific "spitting" to the vague and hugely more violent "assault".

    Ironically, all along ignoring the crime which is greater by many orders of magnitude.  You clearly don't understand the context of the times.

    •  Because that's what it was (0+ / 0-)

      Assault.  That psychiatrist committed no crime in evidence nor was he an accomplice to •any* crime in evidence.

      Explain to me how the context of the time excuses assault against--by all accounts--a completely innocent man.

        and using the word "assault" instead of "spitting" clarifies the facts so well because spitting is the first thing we think about when one mentions "assault".  It's just another rhetorical trick to project your own narrative.

        You project all kinds of "facts" that you choose into this narrative and 1) you weren't there, 2) probably weren't alive at the time and don't understand the experience at all, 3) deliberately overlook the greater injustices done to Phil and others like him.

        I'm not going to do the historical research you need.  I'm done.  Your continued projection of your own version of "facts" for which you cannot know ("a completely innocent man") betrays a mind that operates with multiple layers of self deceit.

        I sincerely wish you a good life.
