What a touchy subject: Politics. I came across the article: “Lie,Exploit and Destroy”, written by an OP-ED Columnist, Charles M. Blow in The New York Times.
Blow criticizes Trump in every sentence to make sure his audience walks away thinking that, “Trump is just the worst person in the world.”. When I came to the end of this extreme leftist post, I realized that all of the claims he was making had hardly any written evidence to support or validate his conclusion. There is no consideration of down-plays in his argument, its his way or no way which leads us to another fallacy of Black-or-White and he admits that himself:
“In the space, everything must exist at its extremes. Everything is love or hate, big or little, best or worse. And, everything is very, very, very.”
It wasn’t to my surprise that this entire blog post is a one-sided fallacy; from the article itself to the comments which were algorithms to place “The New York Times Picked”, comments first in supported of their articles conclusions.
“My sense is that absolutely nothing will be beyond the pale for Trump. He will lie, exploit and destroy. If you think he’s dangerous now, you haven’t seen anything yet.”
