Reject the Question

Wow. I thought we were over this. Way over this. But GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul comes out with this at the debate over in Columbia last night

“I’m suggesting that we listen to the people who attacked us and the reason they did it”

So you would ask the question, "Why do you hate us and want to kill us?"

Let's apply that same approach to Nazis... "Why do you hate Jews?" You know, they can come up with a reasoned response. Maybe based on halftruths and false logic. But it's reasonable enough to them. Do you accept their answer that begins with "I hate Jews because...."? Do you accept the answer then act upon it?

How 'bout a White Supremacist or Klansman? Let's ask, "Why do you hate Black people and Mexicans?" They too can come up with a reasoned response, also based on halftruths and false logic. But it's reasonable to them. Do you accept their answer that begins with "I hate niggers and wetbacks because...."? Do you accept the answer then act upon it?

Of course not. There is nothing that they could say that would cause me to say, "Why, yes, I see now. Of course they deserve it. It's all their fault. We must work on fixing that."

Since there can be no acceptable answer. We must simply reject the question.
