But moving the goalposts is just a tactic. Because the real crux of the matter is that wingnuts CANNOT BACK DOWN.
They take moronic positions and when vestigial logic circuits begin to send signals that they are getting the crap kicked out of them, they simply crank up the motorized goal markers.
There is a grand example of it going on right now.
SUZY ALLCAPSLOCK is in favour of Canada's adopting a nationwide anti-abortion hit list, but not, curiously, in favour of a nationwide registry of known pedophile priests.
SHE is having the crap kicked out of her on HER blogpost announcing HER enthusiasm for anti-abortion terrorism. (I'm trying an experiment here. Usually SHE redirects links to fetal pron, but it appears that SHE is powerless against a shortened link. Because this is an experiment, here's the link. Check back later to see if it turns gory.) **see update below.
Seemingly, amidst the dung-flinging, SHE had one tiny, immaterial thing right. Dr. Dawg looked, found he was wrong, and said:
On this point, it seems I owe you an apology. I found another link that does just what you said. Indefensible, even if the information was in the public domain.
You did not lie on this point, and I withdraw that accusation. I stand by everything else I have said wrt "Nuremberg Files v2.0."
SUZY goes all sanctimonious with:
Thank you for being big enough to apologize. You are forgiven. God Bless.
No, you silly twat*, it's not 'big' to apologize, it's 'big' to ADMIT you were wrong.
Something no rightwingnutjob can EVER do.
Why is that? Has anyone ever seen a wingnut back down in the face of facty-sciency stuff?
For more hilarity, go to CC's and scroll down to 'Aftersnark 3'.
*I got into a twitter spat with another RWNJ yesterday who claimed I was sexist for using that word. I posted that link and suggested to the vocabulary-impaired twit-twat that he check it out. He didn't of course.
**Update from deBeauxOs: Yep, both links now lead to goriness instead of HER original post. In order to see HER blogposts and the comments, go to HER tweet and click on the link there.
