tailgaytor saidUnfortunately Mr. Savage played it wrong. He interrupted too often. He had a sympathic moderator who was going to put Tony Perkins on the spot especially on the final point concerning generational voting differences. Perkins IS on the wrong side of history.
I wanted to hear Perkins hang himself by saying something stupid, but he really didn't have a chance.
Our last sound byte is of Perkins mentioning that he can't get a word in. Our last visual byte is of a smiling Perkins and an almost frowning Savage.
agreed. there is no need to interrupt. the absurdity of Mr. Family Guy's arguments literally speak for them self
I respectfully disagree. Perkins does not have a reasoned argument at all. He is spewing hate behind his preacher smile and his arguments have holes in them big enough to sodomize.
But the problem is not that Americans have not heard these fallacy ridden arguments, it is that they have heard them. Hate, with complete disregard for research or any observable reality, has become apart of the acceptable discourse. When, all along, if someone argues like Perkins we should have called bullshit and shouted them down. Giving these monsters a place at the table legitimizes them.
Americans aren't looking for a reasoned debate on television, they are looking for a talking head authority to give validity to their own homophobia.
