Alan Colmes has Refused to Debate me on Islam
Logans Warning ^ | June 4Th, 2010 | Christopher Logan

Posted on 06/04/2010 7:22:09 PM PDT by Islaminaction

This is the update to my “My Challenge to Alan Colmes” article. After I put that post together, I sent it to Colmes along with a friend request on Facebook. He wrote me back to thank me for the friend request, but did not respond to this email in which I challenged him to a debate on Islam. Mr. Colmes,

I just saw a video where you stated that there is no such thing as radical Islam, and also that Islam is not the problem. Do you care to back your statement up in a debate? If so befriend me, and head to my wall.

My Challenge to Alan Colmes

Thanks,

Christopher

Here is our exchange on Facebook today.

My late father was a very wise man. He gave me advice, one piece of which, stated: “never argue with and idiot because observers can’t tell the difference”.

Time and energy are resources that once spent, you cannot get back.

Correct, there is no such thing as “Radical Islam;”

Islam is Islam!

You’ve never read Sun Tzu have you? Alan won’t debate you because it would be fool hardy. Regardless of who would “win” the debate, he has nothing to gain by debating you, but much to lose. You have nothing to lose by debating him, and everything to gain.

Christopher He is right.... there is no Radical Islam. Their stabbing their own daughters to death, killing innocent people that do not believe as they do, etc is NOT radical to them at all.... It is regular every day old Islam. That is why there is no debate.

Colmes is a little dipsh*t. He's the kinda guy that would cry in a thunderstorm. Don't waste your time.

Just my opinion. BTW...If you do meet up with him, rip that stupid raised eyebrow off his face!

Since Alan has debated everyone of note my theory isn’t that he refuses to debate you. Rather he doesn’t think you’re worth his time to debate. I doubt it’s anything personal, he probably gets a few hundred offers per week.

“you stated that there is no such thing as radical Islam”

I agree with Colmes on this.... Radical islam is exactly the same as regular islam. The back-sliding muslims are the ones who don’t murder.

Alan Colmes is incapable of debating. He can’t even make his own variations on a talking points. When those fail he puts up a very anemic straw-man. Then he tries a Pee Wee Herman-like reply ala “I know you are but what am I?” He will repeat those three tactics ad-nauseum.

Mr. Colmes, tell the people falling over one hundred stories to their deaths on 9/11 that there is no such thing as radical Islam you moron. Tell everybody that witnessed that carnage that day that radical Islam does not exist.

It simply amazes me as to how soon these libs forget about that awful, awful day!

Dennis Miller had an interesting take on what Colmes said, inferring that Colmes meant all Islam was radical therefore there is no such thing as radical Islam.

Alan Colmes is a coward.

Alan Colmes and the people who come on Fox to present a ‘liberal’ view in contrast to conservatives are just following their DNC marching orders. I have seen several READING their talking points. Guess those daily phone calls from the WH are followed up with faxes.

That talking over people thing the ‘liberals’ use is a dead giveaway that their positions are not thought out, backed up with facts and logic, and little more than a “Mikey did it!” or “Your Mamma” ad hominem attack. Why people think a ‘debate’ with such people is descending into the realm of trying to debate a Dodo bird.

The Alan Colmes types and the 0bots are no longer my countrymen. At all.

Kudos for trying. I have moved on to my own family’s & friends’ issues and preservation.

You break it, you buy it. Maybe it was algore shorting the Internet for a few minutes.

Or, shorting it out....
