I usually scroll past these under the counsel of Proverbs 26:4,
but so many whom I know have succumbed to the wiles of the devil.
Hate the president all you want. Don’t vote for him. Campaign against him but do not succumb to
the Father of Lies. Understand that in
this post is a single statement. It is
surely an opinion. If it is fact, the
post brings no supporting documentation to bear, but the statement is made
nonetheless as if it were fact.
Next are a series of conjectural statements that are red
herrings and non-sequiturs. I’m sure
there are other logical fallacies, but the most evident should suffice. Logical fallacies are used when the facts
will not support the desired conclusion.
You shouldn’t be surprised when…
Perverted people support and defend…
It’s not coincidence…followed by unsupported statements…
Imagine if instead of the president’s name, someone substituted
that of your husband and declared in a singular statement that he is a
pedophile. No supporting documentation
is provided nor required by the online venue.
Someone just posts the statement.
That person may or may not believe it, but now the statement is out for
Some who know your husband, might reject the statement outright.
Others might suspect something because someone was bold enough or capricious
enough just to make the statement.
Either way, the statement is out there.
Based on zero facts, we will support the statement with
logical fallacies. Anyone who stands up
for your husband, must also be a pedophile.
What other excuse could they have?
Spice it up a little and advise people don’t be surprised
when those supporting your husband are guilty of the same crimes. These people are otherwise known to you as
respected members of the community, but get lumped into this melee to avoid
having to produce facts.
You shouldn’t be surprised when your husband’s friends are
outed as well. Realize that at this
point, there is no evidence to support your husband or his friends are
pedophiles, but using the tools of the devil, you can paint them as if they
are. Facts and evidence just get in the
way. Hate and contempt must rule!
Rally people to your cause playing on their emotions and
blinding them to the fact they have been deceived.
Let’s continue with non-sequiturs.
Pedophiles support and defend other pedophiles.
Perverted people support, defend, and champion other
Most people would agree with these statements but they have
no real connection to the initial statement that your husband is a pedophile
which was made without supporting evidence.
They are not supporting facts.
Logical fallacies are designed to deceive those who have surrendered
their sound mind.
Those who don’t like your husband for any reason at all, are
called upon to jump on the condemnation bandwagon.
Let’s wrap up this exercise in a style similar to the
original post. It is not a coincidence
that your husband’s friends and supporters who try to help your husband out are
tied to pedophilia and perversion.
When you don’t have facts and logical argument, all you can
really do is reword the same fallacies to appear as a conclusion.
It’s unlikely that anyone would do this to your husband,
brother, son or other dear friend.
Public figures know that they are subject to hate and disdain and all
manner of assertations that may or may not have merit. I know of no perfect people in the world and
the faults of those in the public eye are always magnified.
But this is not about President Trump or your husband or
son. It is about integrity. Will we employ the ways of the Father of Lies
as if he is our own father?
Are we fearful of facts?
Have we lost the ability to discuss and reason?
Have we surrendered the sound mind which is of God for the
tools of the devil?
I have my list of political leaders that I don’t really
like. I am not called to condemn them
using the tools of the devil.
I have had many laughs at the expense of many politicians. Representative Cortez and former VP Biden
keep me laughing. Of course, I had my
laughs at former President George W. Bush as well, when he couldn’t get a door
to open or he tried to pronounce nuclear.
We are entitled to laugh a little at our leaders. They know it comes with the territory, but when
we resort to demeaning them by false argument, it is not about our leaders but
It’s about us.
As noted in the beginning, I usually scroll past these sorts
of posts, but so many that I know and love have been ambushed.
I would not expect anyone to agree with my political choices
based on this post. That’s not the
goal. Campaign your hearts out but don’t
sell your soul along the way. Keep your
sound mind. Challenge the authenticity
and argument of that which you choose to support.
Do not be deceived.
