"Rhetoric and the Creation of Hysteria"

Yes, this describes your intentional mischaracterization of your political opponents perfectly. However, do you think these sort of practices make you better suited for work in the media than in the production of (honest, truth-pursuing, rigorous) academic scholarship?

Love you too big guy. Let's debate again sometime soon.

Leftists love censorship. Where did my comment go?



I know that you threaten to "know who you are" to intimidate anyone whose comments are critical (and "I know what you did last summer" is implied, of course, for horror movie effect), but please, Ediberto, note that "Anon" and "anon" are different.

For my part, I will note that ethno centrism of the leftist race/ethnicity enterprise is, as usual, on stunning display.

With regard to Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, the usual anti US posture is adopted: "What has been the role of the United States (as the region’s hegemon) in promoting and/or abetting these anti-immigration policies?"

For some of the countries named, I would think more relevant questions might be: "What has been the legacy of the brutal and ruthless colonial policies of Spain in Central and South America? Did the "governance" of the region by Spain leave the region with a legacy of good governance? To what extent do persons in this region still suffer from the same prejudices that were introduced by the hegemony of Spain in the region?"

And, as for "anti-immigration policies" I would respectfully suggest taking a basic course in world history and getting some basic sense of what is and has been going on in the rest of the world. Perhaps the constant accusatory tone about "the US hegemon" would be put in a more realistic context and understood in the context of a world history that is shared by, shall we say, others: who seem to think themselves incapable of wrong but for the evil ones they choose to demonize.
