    You defended Haidt: "This guy, Jonathan Haidt, is one of the best social researchers and commentators I have seen." I'm just showing you what he actually says.

    As I said, I admire his work in explaining why conservatives think as they do.

    I did not say I necessarily agreed with him.

    See above.

    You didn't really understand his work. And if you needed to seek help in explaining how people who disagree with you think it says a lot about you. Little of it's good.

    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Chris just demonstrated as much and I didn't say you agreed.

    There you go. A typical conservative reaction.

    Because I don't agree, I don't understand.

    IOW, you admire him where you agree and despise him where you disagree. That's like truthmatters using lie for what she disagrees with and truth for what she agrees with. Is there no introspection in that head of yours?

    Again, it's een demonstrated that you didn't quite get the argument, mate, and I never said you agreed with it. How could you?

    *sigh*

    The true sign of a conservative. "You cannot understand something unless you agree with it".

    You have just demonstrated why Haidt is wrong.

    You've just argued yourself in a circle to contradict your alterego, you've declared your star witness hostile, hoisted your own petard.
