Good Bad Example (Red State bashing part 2)

It's so rare that I see an example of something and think, "Ah, here's what I base all my antisocial stereotypes on." This post from Red State has a nice little tidbit of pseudointellectual hubris:

"PS: That wasn't hatred on my part, by the way. That was "contempt." Hatred implies fear. Contempt can make do with elemental revulsion."

No, hatred does not imply fear. I'm sure you can make that argument somehow, but the fact that something may be true does not elevate it to the level of fact. It doesn't mean you can use it to pretend that you know something about logic or the English language when, quite clearly, you don't. It doesn't mean you can set up a strawman and knock him down with an assertive statement which, in all probability, never even crossed your mind until it became useful to you.
