One of the problems with today's political discourse is the incivility. Nothing positive can happen when you demonize and denigrate those with whom you disagree.
Mr. D.A. King and I have engaged in a back and forth blog discussion on immigration I began some time ago by suggesting Mr. King's inflammatory rhetoric was counterproductive. I noted that proof could be found in the numbers of Hispanics and Latinos, formerly reliable Republican voters, who now support Democrats in overwhelming numbers.
Mr. King, who initially promised to ignore me, has responded by unleashing a series of poorly written personal attacks on me for merely attempting to elevate the debate. He obviously takes comfort and encouragement in the few responses he gets from his cadre of followers.
All his blogs are posted on the MDJ site alongside my blogs. Take a look.
Who's the adult and who's the hysterical reactionary unable to engage in a grown-up discussion? Mr. King is intellectually challenged and lacking the resources to respond civily, he resorts to juvenile nonsense, lamely attempting to embarrass me when it is Mr. King who should hide in shame.
Mr. King, you and your ilk are one of the best things that has ever happened to progressives. In fact, it may well be your own race-baiting that makes the difference for President Obama if he's re-elected.
Keep up the good work, sir.
