Like What?


That’s a question posed by Congresscritter-elect Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) when a recently elected Democrat accused Donald Trump of undermining democracy. The Democrat was unable to cite any example of democracy being undermined. Perhaps a skeptical public should begin asking that question more often.

There was “deliberate interference” with the election in Georgia.

Or …

There’s evidence of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign during the 2016 elections.

The lack of evidence to support a claim reasonably suggests that the claim might be fishy. John Adams once observed that facts are stubborn things, and that stubbornness can be a problem for some political arguments. I expect that we will see more appeals to Homer Simpson’s notion that “[f]acts are meaningless. You could use facts to prove anything that’s even remotely true!” Especially when those stubborn facts get in the way of The Narrative.

One thought on “Like What?

  1. What Democrats and Socialists like to do is use the R word. Calling someone a racist usually works even with no evidence and even if not true. So if Mia Love wins, they will find a way to use it. I imagine they used in Michigan when a black lost to a Muslim.
