Skip to comments.Michael Medved Loses His Cool Over North America Union (Corsi's Response)
Posted on 01/02/2007 1:38:13 PM PST by Kimberly GG
"Film critic and talk show host Michael Medved has decided to put in print on Townhall.com the attack he has frequently broadcast on radio against those of us who are opposing the North American integration being pursued by the Bush Administration activity under the auspices of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America."....
....."Serious readers for centuries are alert to recognize that ad hominem attacks generally mask an inability to counter an argument on logical or evidentiary grounds. In the days of Lenin, communist agitators took the ad hominem attack to a new level, perfecting techniques to discredit their opponents with the intent to discourage the public from listening to arguments that were serious and potentially fatal criticisms of communism. Medved appears to be taking the advice of the radical socialist activist Saul D. Alinsky, who articulated on page 128 of his 1971 book Rules for Radicals his rule No. 5: Ridicule is mans most potent weapon."....
...."Studying the tone of Medveds recent piece in Townhall.com, I was reminded of the abuse my co-author John ONeill suffered on Oct. 22, 2004, when MSNBC senior political analyst Lawrence ODonnell began screaming Liar! Liar! at ONeill during an appearance on Scarborough Country. Reading the transcript of that show, ODonnell appeared to have lost his composure when he was unable to refute ONeills defense of what we wrote in Unfit for Command. Similarly, Medved has reduced himself to spewing forth various strings of derogatory language boldly proclaiming, for instance, that theres no reason at all to believe in the ludicrous, childish, ill-informed, manipulative, brain dead fantasies about a North American Union.
Who then, besides myself, are those who Medved calls on his readers to treat with the derision and contempt they so richly deserve for propounding this paranoid and groundless frenzy over the North American Union?"....

BREAK OUT THE TIN FOIL HATS!!!!!!!
Corsi is a sharp guy. I don't always agree with him, but his arguements are well constructed, and in this piece he runs rings around Medved.
The gist of his "rebuttal" is that he was ATTACKED.
He didn't rebut anything.
I would appreciate an explanation as to why the original piece on this exact subject, written by Mr. Medved, remains in the News/Activism section of Free Republic, as shown here:
while you have seen fit to immediately, MOVE Mr. Corsi's rebuttal to Chat?
A well-constructed argument means nothing when it's in regards to a paranoid delusional fantasy.
"A well-constructed argument means nothing when it's in regards to a paranoid delusional fantasy."
Says a lot considering your nic.
This is just like the irrational "New World Order" paranoia 10 years ago.
Corsi's response doesn't belong in news or chat... it belongs in the trashbin of history.
I didn't ask you the question, I asked the Admin, unless of course, you ARE the admin?
**bookmarked for more funny keywords**
And, of course since you and the Dog are the only ones on this thread, I take it one or both of you are responsible for the keywords as well?
Funny to see Corsi use the word evidentiary. I thought he was allergic to evidence?
You guys are a hoot..keep 'em coming.
Especially against the ridiculous.
Excellent rebuttal by Jeromi Corsi and full article is full of detailed information.

I didn't post any of the keywords, but I guarandamntee that you posted a bunch of them.
Belongs in the Smoky Back Room, under "humor."
