In the guise of even-handedness, Sue Lani Madsen has once again written a mean-spirited and divisive column.
Objecting to the continuing fallout after the county GOP tried to uncouple itself from white supremacist James Allsup, Madsen ends with a silly faulty analogy: comparing criticism of the local Republican Party to “denouncing all Muslims because of the existence of Al Qaeda.”
Sorry, but no. As soon as “all Muslims” actually do publicly embrace Al Qaeda and then, in the face of political embarrassment, suddenly change their minds, then the analogy will work. But because this is reality, we need not anticipate that happening. I will give Madsen credit, though, for her unintended analogy between Allsup and Al Qaeda. Nicely done.
