Not just those guys - you guys as well. (And not just "you guys", but YOU personally, Cadfael. How many different memes have you posted that were later shown to be completely false and untrue?)
Another example is how a lotta folks in the gun thread made it clear that facts don't matter to 'em at all - they still insist that assault weapons fire thousands of bullets every minute, that there is never a need for someone to defend themselves, and that only the military has a constitutional right to bear arms. Those people don't care about facts at all - they want guns banned and in their mind the ends justify the means.
You also got a fella going around claiming that Limbaugh says the banks are denying loans to anyone who owns a gun...tho no record of Rush saying such a thing can be found.
More recently, when confronted with the fact that tear gas was used at the border during the Obama Admin a foron said they don't know if that is true (even tho Google was LITERALLY right there at their fingertips) nor do they care. How much more blatant can one be about wanting to ignore the actual truth?
To top it off...one of the more prolific posters on this forum admitted that he intentionally posts misleading and untrue statements in an attempt to get those with a conservative viewpoint to engage him.
And those are just off the top of my head...the list could go on&on.
It is impossible to reason someone out of a conclusion they didn't reason themselves into.
Exactly. Which is why reasonable people are so frustrated with the extremists on both sides of the aisle.
