Classic Straw Man

I was amused by this letter to the editor about my column this week:

Being in my late 70s, I thought I had heard just about everything. Then I read Owen Robinson’s column on Tuesday where he blames President Biden for the 2020 murder rate. “Unbelievable.” If you follow that kind of logic then Biden was also responsible for the insurrection at our Capitol. No need for a second impeachment, and President Obama must have been responsible for the “Great Recession” instead of actually ending it. That takes Bush off the hook and now he wants to take Trump off the hook.


Readers of the Daily News needn’t worry about reading revisionist history. Robinson has that covered.

Ummm… OK, but here’s my column. I don’t even mention Biden. I wrote about Democrats, but there are Democrats who aren’t a member of the Biden family. It’s a good example of someone who read what he wanted to read instead of what was actually written.

    Reading comprehension by liberals is so overrated.

  2. Kevin Scheunemann

    That is “Nord level” reading (in)comprehension. It is a common problem with leftists.

  3. MjM

    Wait. A. Minute.

    “Late 70’s”

    Warped cognition.

    Multiple lies in a few sentences.

    Could it be….?

  4. Le Roi du Nord


    So says the guy that doesn’t know the difference between a fascist and a socialist. And believes that the British had airports during the Revolutionary War. And believes that the earth is 6000 years old.

    Once again k, you are in waaaay over your head, and your willful ignorance does not serve you well.

  5. Mar

    And you, Pervert Boy Le Roi, are a pervert.
    Loves Perverts.
    Loves child molesters.
    Probably has conjugal visits with the pervert judge who watches babies being raped and distributes child porn who now has been convicted of distributing child porn.
    Between you and Kevin, I’ll take Kevin.
    Unlike you,Kevin is not a pervert child porn loving moron, like yourself.

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    Those are all lies, and you know it. You just can’t help yourself, can you ?

  7. Mar

    Well, Pervert Boy, you said that the pervert judge had to have his say in court before you would condemn him.
    You still refuse to condemn your lover.
    Suck it up, buttercup but probably do all the sucking anyways.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann

    Oh Nord,

    Where did I say British had airports during Revolutionary war? You just proved your lack of reading comprehension again….

    Also, “fascist” and “socialist” are the same thing. Nazi’s were self proclaimed socialists. I know modern day socialists like to deny the nazi’s their socialaist self-identity, but that makes you insensitive to the truth…violating woke leftist code.

  9. Le Roi du Nord


    All lies, little fella.


    Using the logic espoused by you and mar, since you never condemned or denounced trump, you agreed with every one of the lies he spewed forth.

    And no k, they aren’t the same. The nazis were avidity anti socialist . Check out WWII “eastern front”. Your willful ignorance of history betrayed you again

  10. Kevin Scheunemann

    You are such a lying piece of excrement. There was no need to denounce because Trump was being humorous.

    Humor does not need to be denounced because joyless people, like yourself, already infect the world enough.

    “socialist” is right in the name of the Nazi political party. It is not uncommon for socialists to kill each other. Just look at what happened to Che.

    Just admit it, you love brutal, violent, leftist leftist ideology….

  11. Mar

    “Using the logic espoused by you and mar, since you never condemned or denounced trump, you agreed with every one of the lies he spewed forth.”
    And another lie by Pervery

  12. Mar

    And Pervert Boy Le Roi, just because you say it is a lie doesn’t mean it is. Your history of lying here is very well documented.
    But hey, I am sure the pervert judge will enjoy your love letters to him. You’re such a fan boy of his.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    Wrong again k, there is no evidence, anywhere, that indicates he was attempting to be humorous . And that wasn’t the only historical error he made in that speech. So go ahead and “ ram the ramparts”.

    And all lies again mar. If nothing else, you are consistent. Consistently wrong.

  14. Mar

    Between Pervert Boy Le Roi and Truck Driver Joe,they make lying an art form.
    But you both have a lot in common.
    Both of you like little kids, inabad way.
    You both are old and senile.
    Both of you are haters.
    And both of you have no clue what you are talking about.
    Both of you do know how the real-world works.
    Both of you have worked in government most of your lives and believe in big government.
    No wonder you support him.
    2 peas in a pod.
    Old, moldy rotten peas.

  15. Le Roi du Nord

    Here is a fact mar, and you can take it to the bank; everything you said is a lie. You are certainly consistent.

  16. Mar

    Pervert Boy Le Roi, you have no creditably.
    You lie constantly and you are such a coward that you cannot even defend yourself.
    But hey, I heard the pervert judge who watches babies being raped and you defend, is looking for some money to make phone calls to you, so you can share the secrets of the dark web. I hear he wants to share with you the web sites he uploaded, but he just doesn’t have enough money in his canteen fund.

  17. Tuerqas

    I am not sure if straw men arguments are just acceptable or if literally almost no liberal even understands the concept of what a straw man argument is. Le-Roi has used them quite a few times and denied it every time, even though the reason his argument was a straw man was clearly spelled out. I don’t think they understand that there is a difference between hyperbole and a straw man argument at all. Not that any of them I have ‘communicated’ with will admit to using hyperbole instead of honesty either, but at least exaggeration is closer to truth than a false equivalent.

    i.e. Owen, I think you lost every liberal as soon as you used the phrase straw man…

  18. Mar

    Oh, here’s another one.
    Pervert Boy Le Roi is a strong believer of climate change and big supporter of Truck Driver Joe.
    But Senile Joe travels throughout the United States on Air Force I creating a lot of pollution and CO2 emissions,using a 747, and the old bastard stuttering senile bastard flew to Michigan. And back to DC.
    Yeah, climate change my ass.
