Ooh, can I play?

I’ve always loved False Dichotomies. Here’s a few favorites: “If you didn’t vote for Obama you’re a foaming racist who clearly hates black people”.

“If you didn’t vote for Hillary you don’t support women’s rights”.

“If you don’t support kneeling football players you obviously hate Puerto Ricans”. (heard that one at work last year...and yeah, “WTF”? I work in Boulder, so you can imagine the stupid sh*t that comes out of those people’s mouths)

“If you didn’t spit on returning Vietnam vets you clearly approved of the My Lai massacre”.

“If you don’t support tax increases you obviously want a world filled with uneducated children”.

“If you think ‘Loading the Dishwasher’ means getting your wife drunk, you might be a redneck”.



Point being, if your opening salvo is a logical fallacy, you’ve already lost the argument.

Absolutely agree with you here.

If I assume that every vote for Johnson was a #NeverTrump vote and every vote for Stein or Sanders was a #NeverHillary vote and give those votes back to either Trump or Hillary


You would be making a mistake.

I would presume that most if not all were from #NeverTrumpers


You would be making a mistake again.

Not necessarily. It was an assumption for the sake of making a point. Point being that the #NeverTrumpers not voting for Trump didn't necessarily make a difference.

Yes, of course, not EVERY SINGLE Johnson voter was a #NeverTrumper. Nor was EVERY SINGLE vote for Stein necessarily a #NeverHillary vote.

But... point being... even if I assume that they were, it STILL wouldn't have made a difference.

For the record, though: I know several #NeverTrumpers. They all voted for Johnson. Most well-known being probably Erick Erickson (Formerly of RedState but now on WSB radio out of Atlanta.)(Though he's since said that he WILL vote for Trump in '20). I also know several Stein voters; they could ALL be described as #NeverHillary.

You made a reasonable assumption. TG is just being his usual ass.
