  •  Guilt by association. (0+ / 0-)

    It seems like the people at National Review want to see how many fallacies they can cram into one paragraph. (Somehow, they forgot the Post Hoc ergo Propter Hoc.)

    Always through politics. No, not the young Republicans. Usually the Communist Youth League. Or maybe a different arm of the CPUSA. But, for a white woman to marry a black man in 1958, or 60, there was almost inevitably a connection to explicit Communist politics.

    Even if this wasn't a hasty generalization, it would be guilt by association. The author wants us to think htat all the interracial couples he's known were Communists, therefore Barack's parents are Communists. Maybe the author's social circle was limited, did he ever think of that?

    (During the Clinton Administration we were all introduced to then U. of Pennsylvania Professor Lani Guinier -- also a half black/half Jewish, red diaper baby.)

    When Clint Bolick & co. tried to make a fuss about Lani Guinier, they couldn't convince anyone that she had actually written that Blacks who win with White support are inauthentic, so he charged that we couldn't prove that she hadn't. Burden of proof, anyone?

    I've always had the suspicion that the left listens to Bush a lot more than his own administration ever did.-Babylonandon, Huffington Post.
