“I guess they don’t like anybody who disagrees with them”

Famous last words from a tolerant Democrat.

Senate Democrats are rallying to Attorney General Eric Holder’s defense.

They argue Republicans are wrong to suggest he is overly partisan, or that he is more uncooperative with Congress compared to past attorneys general.

“I guess they don’t like anybody who disagrees with them,” said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. “He’s a strong and smart advocate for a different point of view.”

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a senior member of the panel, also stood up for Holder.

“I simply do not accept that. I’ve been here long enough to know,” she said. “He is less partisan than some, that’s for sure.”

Um, OK. So just to be clear, Republicans are the forces of intolerance while Democrats would never wage war on anyone who disagrees with them, right?

    There is a quickly-mounting amount of data showing that the Left is completely un-self-aware. When called on it, the smarter ones launch into some kind of rationalization and the dumber ones stare back at you blankly.

    I think the “agree and amplify” technique might be useful here, to the extent that anything is. A response like “Yes, everyone who disagrees with me is the Devil and is going to Hell for all eternity because Jesus. Now, do you want to have a dialogue like two adults or do you want to keep on blabbering bullshit like a fucking idiot all day?” makes sense.

    “He’s a strong and smart advocate for a different point of view.”

    In other words, HE’S PARTISAN. Lol, that is EXACTLY what that comment means! He is NOT supposed to be an “advocate” for any point of view. He is supposed to be an unbiased agent of the law.

    Ed Meese says ‘hi!’

    I think he underwent more scrutiny than Holder, and Meese never actually did anything wrong.

    Poor Eric, being coddled and protected by the criminally complicit Media for the color of his skin and the fact that he is a Democrat. How HARD his life must be to be held to any standards at all.

    My heart bleeds for Eric, truly it does.

    I’m tempted to chalk it up to good old leftist projection, but it’s much worse than that. Democrats believe that because they are RIGHT and GOOD, anything they say is ipso facto RIGHT and GOOD. Further, because they are RIGHT and GOOD, anyone who opposes them is WRONG and BAD, and must be silenced by “whatever means necessary.”

    Semms like Eric Holder is denying information and documents to member of Congress in regard to Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and the IRS because they aren’t African-Americans.

    Another approach to flipping the power in the discussion would be to say “You are obviously someone who has assumptions about the world that I don’t share. I’m not sure what more there is to discuss.” You undercut the Leftist’s pretension to being an assumption-less agent of pure reason and you come across as the rational one.

    Of course, it also has the virtue of being true and a place where the non-Leftist wins the argument, because Leftists’ assumptions about the world are not accurate.

    #1 — Why are the comment dates showing as 11/11/14 ?

    #2 — cool arrow at 10:30 am has it EXACTLY right.

    It’s “winter savings time”, where you set the clocks ahread by 7 months… you know, for reasons.

    “They argue Republicans are wrong to suggest he is overly partisan, or…”

    What do they mean, suggest?

    There’s no question – he IS overly partisan, and corrupt as well.
