How to Argue Like a "Liberal"

From this:


  1. Make an untrue statement.

  2. Deny that you said what you said.
  3. Deny that the other party understood what you said.
  4. Deny that the words you used mean what the other party claims they mean.
  5. Redefine your definition and hope the other person forgets the previous one. Repeat as needed.
  6. Assert that since definitions are irrelevant and subjective, the other person is mean-spirited, racist, sexist, intolerant and obsessive.
  7. Change the subject.
