All of you race-bullies are the same, aren’t you? It’s all about attacks and ad hominems against people you disagree with, no actual reasoned arguments being made. As for your take “on language,” I’ll say this: you’re no William Safire. How does titling something “In Defense of Banning The DiDi Delgado from Medium for Advocating Violence Against Cops” suggest that it’s something that’s already happened? It’s a proposed course of action that I’m defending and advocating for. What you wrote is sort of like saying that Ta-Nehisi Coates’ “The Case for Reparations” is also a bad title because it’s something that’s already happened. “In Defense of …” and “The Case for …” are pretty much synonymous expressions. They’re advocacy.

As for cursing, I’m not a prude who’s shocked by cursing or who won’t quote someone else’s curse when I need to make a point, but when you get these fools cursing like juvenile delinquents because they don’t know how to string ideas together coherently, it does make a certain impression ….
