In the comments at the Elder's joint, under my recent response to Jon Haber, "fizziks" called me a liar.
Isn't there enough to take issue with in regard to Obama's treatment of Israel without having to resort to falsehoods about him "supporting" the Muslim Brotherhood?In what universe does providing rhetorical, financial, and military assistance to an organization somehow not constitute support?
Do I actually need to dig up links from the New York Times to verify?
Or does the word "support" have some transitional meaning that I am simply unaware of?
It is as if "fizziks" lives in some alternative mathematical universe within which "A" does not necessarily equal "A."
Thus when the Obama administration advances cash and F-16 fighter jets and Abrams tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt - to be used against whom? - in the world of "fizziks" this does not constitute support.
This seems to be an example of the hyper-sophisticated Obama supporter who understands the extreme flexibility and relativity of truth.
Fizziks writes, viz-a-viz the "Arab Spring":
Obama supported the attempted transition to democracy in Egypt.Ho. Ho. Ho.
This is an excellent example of an intelligent person absolutely refusing to face reality.
There was no attempt to a transition to democracy in Egypt during the so-called "Arab Spring."
There were western journalists and intellectuals who blithely announced it to be true - and who never admitted their mistake when it turned out to be false - and "fizziks" seems to be among them.
The "Arab Spring" was nothing more than Arab riots (and rapes) and well-meaning western delusions and apologetics. It was pretty obvious right from the beginning for anyone with a non-ideologically encumbered cognitive pulse.
Nonetheless, months and years go by and, somehow, the truth cannot seep into particular skulls. The reason for this is not due to lack of intelligence. The reason, I suspect, is a combination of ideology and pride, among other possible seasonings. Some Jewish Obama supporters were able to recognize a mistake and some insisted on sticking with Obama no matter what.
Fizziks seems to be in the latter category.
How does one have a political conversation with a physicist who absolutely refuses to acknowledge basic facts?
The Obama administration supported the Brotherhood and the Brotherhood called for the conquest of Jerusalem.
