You Are Doing Skepticism Wrong @NRA @Obamaskeet @Obamashoots @Obamascores
President Obama, who is all scared of guns.
Of course when the President said that he enjoyed shooting skeet at Camp David, the reaction was predictably stupid. Irrational hatred of the President has led to such knee-jerkism as this National Review post arguing that Obama is wrong, Wrong, WRONG! about the ‘senselessness’ of Nazism. It’s breathtaking while being dully stupid, which is not a good kind of achievement.
Still, it’s not as terrible an achievement compared to the people who believe that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was a hoax as they have managed to actually lower the bar below the behavior of the Westboro Baptist Church without having to actually become literal necro-pedophiles. Yet they get so close to it that they have found a new degree of depravity in which to wallow, an undiscovered country of filth to fling at the memories of murdered children, with untold acres of sinful whispers and satanic thoughts to entertain the imaginations of these explorers of the darkest abysses of the soul. It’s definitely not the good kind of achievement.
Skepticism is not contrariness, open-mindedness is not a rejection of fact, and in fact, rejection of fact is the first clue that you are wrong, Wrong, WRONG! Learning that is a good achievement.
