Great article! While 'branding people who disagree as liars or bigots as a cheap way to silence dissenters' may indeed by 'cheap' it is certainly meant to 'silence dissenters.' It comes directly from Alinsky's playbook, "Rules for Radicals." Unfortunately, and much to our country's detriment, the MSM is complicit in this destructive discourse, including twice getting an person elected to our highest office that uses these same tactics to successfully push a radical agenda and 'fundamentally transform the United States of America" and this issue is just another part of the 'transformation.' Thanks again. Hopefully this will bring about some civil discourse but don't be surprised if it results in more 'screaming down any dissenters.'
