Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
We are somewhat at x-purposes I think, Don. I have expressed no agreement with, or even opinion on, Ake's desire for compulsory testing, which I appreciate is one of the grounds for some people's denunciations but on which I have no strong feelings. But the initial attitude that, as some of the statistics he cited appeared to redound to the disadvantage of a certain demographic, then they must be false [tho nobody disputed them], and that his mere citing of them at all was iniquitous and proved that he was every possible sort of double-dyed villain who must be scouted out of decent society, was what stuck in my craw ~~ as I have said & make no apology for saying again, an exemplar of the sort of agenda-driven mindset which all-too-often takes the place of rational disputation on the part of certain persons of a knee-jerkingly 'progressive' bent.
