If it's not this, then it must be that by Steve Aunan, guest blogger

  • Not all Christians are good, so Christianity is evil.
  • Not all Muslims are terrorists, so Islam is peace.
  • Not all men are rapists, so we live in a rape culture.
  • Motherhood is the most important work, so the only job allowed for women is motherhood.
  • Some speech is hateful, so free speech is hate speech.
  • Conservatives are not Progressives, so Conservatism is destructive.
  • All Progressives are conservationists, so spending is conservation.
  • Not all citizens save for retirement, so those who do must pay for those who don't.
  • Some people can't get a state ID card, so voter fraud doesn't exist.
  • Some people vote 12 times in one election, so voter ID is racist.
  • The batteries in all electric cars use precious metals from strip mines, so politicians say the coal industry must die.
  • Tens of millions of people stop looking for work, so they are not unemployed.
  • American taxes make people on welfare wealthier than 99% of the world's poor, so America hates the poor.
  • Americans hate the poor, so America must pay the world.
  • Western capitalist democracies are the cleanest nations on earth, so CO2 is a pollutant.
  • Every living mammal exhales CO2, so humans are parasites.
  • There are more men than women in science and technology jobs, so college is sexist.
  • There are more women in college than men, so women need safe spaces.
  • People who support the police and safe neighborhoods are deplorable, so people who burn down their neighborhoods and shoot police are freedom fighters.
  • One man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist, so Americans are terrorists.
I could go on forever like this, so I'm a hater.
