Ben Burgis with a Marxist Logical Argument
GUEST: Dr. Ben Burgis, philosophy professor and author of the recent book Give Them an Argument: Logic for the Left (Amazon, Google). He does a weekly guest segment on The Michael Brooks Show called The Debunk w/ Ben Burgis (find the playlist on YouTube). Follow him on Twitter @BenBurgis. (He was on Jesse Lee Peterson’s show Wed, Jun 26, 2019, Hour 2.)
He has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Miami. He is a science fiction writer. Burgis has taught at Rutgers University, New Jersey, as well as Georgia State University - Perimeter College (according to his Facebook).
What does Ben think of President Donald Trump? Is he voting for Trump? No? DONE!
Did Ben like anybody in the Dem debates?
Ben Burgis is a Marxist. Creepy!
Do Marxists support Freedom of Speech? (Jesse Lee Peterson has the spirit of the First Amendment. So does Trump to a point I think.)
Or the fundamental right to own and carry effective, cutting-edge modern guns and weapons?
How about the human right of discrimination?
You wanna destroy America’s foundations and rebuild in your image, right?
Why are so many Jewish people Marxist, atheist, anti-God, anti-white, anti-men, anti-Christian, anti-American? About 70% vote Democrat (far-left), which is either disloyal or lacking in knowledge. Is Burgis a useful idiot or knowingly evil? Does Burgis believe in evil?
Jewish people seem to be in a 100+ year spiritual phase of rejecting common sense and reality (e.g. Trump), playing god, especially the left, but also the quote-unquote right.
Marxism is an atheist religion, sister of Islam, leftist fake Christianity, anti-Christian Judaism (like Paul was), cults, etc. Very controlling.
Ben Burgis thinks he debunked Jesse Lee Peterson…
But he repeated a lie about illegals committing less crime than Americans.
Look up John Lott, Heather Mac Donald, and Jared Taylor. You can’t dismiss Jared Taylor just because he’s a white advocate; that’s Ad Hominem.
Ohhh… Ben referred a mixed black guy (Cole James Cash) to be a guest and he answered NOTHING! So Jesse ditched him! Shocked the guy!
The book cover targets Ben Shapiro’s mantra, “Facts don’t care about your feelings.”
That’s other Ben. The other Ben’s not wild about Trump either! How’s it feel to Ben Burgis being an intellectual just like Ben Shapiro?
Burgis’s book intro lumps Alt-Right with Ben Garrison and Stefan Molyneux’s “Not an Argument” line.
The other-other Ben (Garrison) is older and wiser.
QUOTE: Right wingers “turn a disturbing lack of empathy with the victims of right-wing policies into a virtue.”
SARCASTIC QUOTE: If you were “less ‘emotional,’” then “you wouldn’t object to human rights violations in Palestine or on America’s southern border….”
HAKE’S TAKE: Liberals sympathize with fake victims.
QUOTE: “college-educated urbanites” just get “decades of paying down student loan debt…” But that’s good (Hake putting words in Ben’s mouth) because “this situation played a role in the revival of the left.”
HAKE’S TAKE: Commies like to overwhelm the system to destroy and fundamentally transform it.
QUOTE: In the case of logical newbies too eager to find fallacies: “Any citation of expert opinion will be classified as Appeal to Authority.”
HAKE’S TAKE: IT IS! Man-made Climate Change hysteria is pure Appeal to False Authority scare tactic! Commies like to go outside your area of expertise.
REFERENCE to Ad Hominem: Looking at the person IS a good argument.
GRAMMAR CORRECTION: “...me and my fellow logic instructors are complicit...” is poor grammar. It should be “...my fellow logic instructors and I would be complicit…”
REFERENCE: “...vapid David Brooks columns and Jonathan Chait essays…” I agree, both those guys are liberal COWARDS. (I didn’t get to this one!)
