One of the Larvatus Prodeo lefties, Phil Gnomes, makes illogical remarks about the consequences of ratbags supporting a particular viewpoint. If ratbags support a viewpoint he claims, it ‘speaks’. So, taking the example Gnomes takes, Pauline Hanson supports Kevin Andrews on the African migrant question so it ‘speaks’ – since Pauline Hanson is beyond the pale so too must Kevin Andrews’ policy. It is kind of like if X attracts flies, then clearly X = a manure pile.
But as I pointed out in a reply to Phil’s supremely stupid post (that was ‘gnomishly’ censored) it does not ‘speak’ at all. That Adolf Hitler liked the music of Richard Wagner does not mean that that Wagner was not a great musician. Indeed, even though Wagner was a disgusting anti-Semite who cuckolded the wives of his buddies and had foolish ideas on just about everything other than music, this carries no implications regarding the quality of his grand music – romantic, erotic, militaristic, nationalist – the whole scrambled bundle. I’ve got to say that Wagner moves me almost like no other.
I take up my time re-recording these observations here since Gnomes censored them at LP.
This is not much of a post, I agree, but neither is that provided by Gnomes. It is Friday night and if the best I can do is to correct some gnomish reasoning by a gnomish leftie then, yeah, that is Friday night.
