Sigh. Ted Nugent and the David Hogg use the exact same argument techniques - ad hominem, ad hominem, ad hominem. Hogg uses incredibly vicious, outlandish language to slander (or at least decry) everyone who disagrees with his views, no matter his opponents' strength of reason, and Nugent is no better. However, while Nugent is a grown man, these children are children, and the kids get a free pass.... why? They entered the political arena, and their views and tactics are fair game for criticism and derision as much as Nugent's or anyone else's. So I would say.

If someone threatened to kill and rape my mom a few weeks after a bunch of my classmates got shot I'd probably take the gloves off too. And it's not unfair to give leeway to a kid anyway. He makes a very simple argument. To people who were unswerving after a room full of 5 year-olds got shot. How do you deal with that kind of extremist?
