The Godwin card?

Duke University Shrink: Trump May Be Worse Than Hitler, Stalin, And Mao. Tyler Durden – “The former chief of the Duke University Psychiatry Department went on CNN this weekend to claim President Trump is mentally unfit for the office, and proceeded to up the hyperbole quotient to unprecedented levels. … He then suggested that it would be acceptable to lie about Trump’s mental state if there was a way to use that false narrative to get him out of office.” Consider the ‘gravitas’ of the source of this as contrasted to the assertions absent any support and the claim that the end justifies the means. This is what we have in mainstream academia; the people who would be certifying ‘red flag’ claims to deny constitutional rights; the people whose explicit professional guidelines prohibit this sort of behavior. Just who is the dangerous one here?

CNN: Trump is Worse than Hitler, Mao and Stalin Combined Because Climate Change. Eric Worrall – “If one Godwin card doesn’t move your audience, throw the full deck…” This may help explain where that ‘millions of deaths’ idea comes from: climate change! (just like every other doom and gloom distopia fantasy these days it seems)

“I used to wonder if some people were attracted to psychology courses because they wanted to find solutions to their own problems.

I no longer believe this to be the case; but it is way past time the handful of psychology professionals, who in my opinion flout their own ethical guidelines by offering wild public opinions about the mental state of people whose policies they dislike, took a long hard look in the mirror.

Macron’s Iran stunt. Paul Mirengoff – “France has lost its grandeur, but perhaps not its desire to seem grand. Macron, in any case, possesses that desire in spades. Zarif’s visit confirms that satisfying it means more to Macron than any particular policy objective.” It’s another ‘end justifies the means’ with no consideration of the implications of the means taken. Mirengoff has another one toward the same point in Police chiefs: Warren’s false claims are putting police officers’ lives in danger. Then his colleague Scott Johnson picks up on Iran again with Iran revisited (2) … “To this date the American public has not been advised of the side deals that the Obama administration made with Iran to announce its agreement to the JCPOA.
