Am I the face of Cognitive Dissonance?
Someone named Floyd Hanson displayed my face on Facebook with the caption, “Cognitive Dissonance has a face.”
Cognitive dissonance has a face
This occurred under a thread by Sean Hemmings. Mr. Hemmings’ post displays some pictures of women bleeding from severe whippings purportedly administered in Saudi Arabia with the statement, “There was no Women’s March when Hillary Clinton took millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia, where women are treated as less than human beings, stoned to death, sold as slaves, forced to obey dress codes, no education & more!” The implication seems to be that Hillary is to blame for these women’s wounds. I wrote a sarcastic comment which I won’t repeat here. You have the link. You can read the whole thing.
Links that Matter
- Think the Women’s March Wasn’t Radical Enough? Do something about it. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor “The women’s marches in Washington DC and around the country were stunning, inspiring and the first of a million steps that will be needed to build the resistance to Trump. It might not have been as black, brown or working class as many might have liked. But criticizing it from the sidelines doesn’t help anyone.”
- Ideology May be Elliptical. You go so far in one direction, do you wind up on the other side? Could be. Elitist “leftists” are directing their ire to liberals instead of fascists.
- We Are Living in Interesting Times. Trump has made the news exciting again.
- The Sowing of Discord. Unity anyone?
- What is Truth? Pontius Pilate washed his hands. Can we afford to wash ours?
