Response to spin (Reply #74)

86. If by "my side" you mean "Democrats", then yes.

 

If you are one of those "both sides do it" centrists, maybe you don't really belong on DU after all. I happen to believe that there is a big difference between, for example, the people who publish global warming research in science journals, and the right-wingers who write for the National Review about how it's all a hoax. Along those lines, there's also a big difference between people who publish gun violence research in science journals, and right-wingers who blog about how it's all a hoax.

I would love to have a debate with an intelligent and progressive pro-gunner, if there is such a thing, but presumably this hypothetical pro-gun progressive would be able to make his or her case without resorting to links to FOXNews or WashingtonTimes or WorldNetDaily. This is supposed to be a message board for Democrats and liberals, where we don't have to pretend that maybe the idiots who talk about "legitimate rape", or want to teach creationism in schools have a valid point. I don't see why we should tolerate right-wing gun propaganda either.
