It’s Worth Repeating: If Leftists Have to Debate Fairly… They’ll Lose Every Time

To elaborate just a bit: If the Left were unable to use insults, name-calling or mind-reading, they’d have nothing to say… and they’d lose every debate in which they have to participate honestly.

I’d add: if the Left were also unable to filibuster, talk over, interrupt their debate opponents, they’d cease to exist as anything but a fringe current of thought.

We proposed a way to make all this happen. It would depend on people like Tucker Carlson, Ben Shapiro, Mark Steyn, Ann Coulter, Kevin Williamson, Rich Lowry, Jonah Goldberg and other thought leaders of Conservatism.

If such people were to implement what I’ve called the “Foul Shot” and “Equal Time” rules (here and here), and if they were to punch back each time the Left does a rhetorical cheap shot, the Left would quickly disappear as a prominent current of thought.

As far as “punching back” is concerned, we indicated how to do that here. And here. And here. And here. And here.

The point: It’s not like we haven’t said this before… 🙂
