    He can ad hominem me all he likes, where i draw the line is where someone to prove a misguided point accuses me of one of the most reprehensible things in society. And instead of admitting that it was too harsh, he’s only doubled down. So, yeah, I’d like to put a scare in him.

    If you’d like to have a nuanced discussion about the disparate impact of food deserts on minorities, their connection to segregation and Jim Crow, etc... I’m all ears.

    If you want to continue implying that I’m a racist for pointing out that diabetes and obesity are an enormous problem in this country, that cuts across all racial and socioeconomic borders, then I’m going to continue to tell you to go fuck yourself.

    I made a mistake for saying that fast food is bad for you and the obesity/diabetes epidemic can’t be boiled down to a racial or socioeconomic explanation? How?

    I’m glad you’ve learned and grown up. Please don’t take that as license to accuse others of being racist with no cause.

    1) Some states require the crime be one of moral turpitude.

    2) No reasonable person would believe I actually alleged you did that. I was clearly responding to your patently offensive loaded question with an even more ridiculous one. I used the literal dictionary definition of it on purpose you nitwit.

    He wasn't really accusing you. Anybody who has taken a high school rhetoric class understands that phrase isn't to be taken literally. Poor taste? Sure, maybe. Literally? C'mon

    A rhetorical device is making fun of someone appearance or calling them a loser for being a stay at home dad. Calling some a wife beater is nowhere close to being in that same ballpark.

    Yeah, that’s not how that works. He’s satisfied the elements and as phrased it’s enough to that plenty of people reading this without context reacted as if it were true and they just were not aware of it. It was not “clearly sarcastic” as Pokes claims.

    Yeah, it's always phrased that way. I certainly took it for what it was, a ludicrous throwaway line in response to the ludicrous accusation to which he was responding.

    Good luck to him with that police report

    Moral turpitude is not clearly defined and certainly a judge would agree that an accusation of domestic violence would qualify as such. Just admit it was fucked up and that my implication that your were being slightly racist did not warrant your response.

    Judges have taken rhetoric classes too. They're far more likely to come down hard on you for wasting their time. Good luck scaring anybody.

    FWIW I have no dog in the fight of the actual argument here. I just find it funny that you're getting so worked up about something I've seen said online many times, with no attendant hysterical reaction.

    Are you under the impression that this is a criminal situation?

    Taking a high school rhetoric class certainly qualifies you to weigh in on what is facially defamatory in order to survive a motion for summary judgment.

    I'm under the impression that this is a tragically hilarious situation.

    I haven't taken high school rhetoric, but I have taught pre-law courses at UCLA, so there's that. I also exercise common sense.

    At any rate, good luck with that whole outrage thing.

    Internet banter typically does not include one of the most reprehensible acts imaginable. And you pretending like it’s de minimis only serves to marginalize victims of domestic violence.

    Clown Baby, I’ve both prosecuted and defended defamation lawsuits. This ain’t it buddy.

    My offer, however, still stands: apologize for calling me a racist and I’ll apologize for responding with the dictionary example of the question fallacy.

    Side note—I always thought that murder or rape were the most reprehensible acts imaginable, but it’s good to know misdemeanor assault qualifies too.

    I didn’t outright call you a racist, I said “you’re just dying to support your proposition that brown people are killing healthcare.” You responses with “Do you still beat your wife, Clown Baby.” These two statements are not on equal footing. I followed my statement up with “You made a racially insensitive post, which does not make you racist. It happens but it can be a moment of growth.”

    So, I’ll take my apology now.
