Tom Sipos Breaks My Irony Meter

Tom Sipos, McCarthyism is "the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, esp. of pro-Communist activity, in many instances unsupported by proof or based on slight, doubtful, or irrelevant evidence".

I never accused Angela or Lee of being more loyal to the ideas of another party than to those of the LP. You're the one here doing that. When you mentioned "psychological projection" here, you broke my irony meter.

I repeatedly said that my concern about Angela was about "a self-declared lame duck LNC member keeping her seat while publicly advocating against joining or donating to the party".  I challenged you to assert that such a member should keep her seat, and instead of addressing this behavior by Angela you  used expensive space in California Freedom to print a picture of Aaron Starr with a Hitler mustache.  I challenged you above @136 to explain how your smears about "Republican lite" don't satisfy my characterizations of them, and instead you issue this drive-by red herring about Angela.  I guess intellectual courage isn't your strong suit...

All I've said regarding Wrights is 1) the Bylaws arguably require that both a dues lapse and an attendance lapse result in automatic suspension and 2) the LNC should rubber-stamp Lee's appointment as long as he disavows all suggestions that the LP is not to be donated to.  I challenge anybody reading this to publicly agree with Sipos that either of these two positions is in any way McCarthy-like. I challenge anybody reading this to agree with Sipos that saying that the LP is infested with unnamed "Republican lites" is NOT McCarthy-like.

You keep issuing your drive-by smears about "lite" and "projection", and I'll keep backing up my characterizations with dictionary definitions and actual facts.  This isn't California Freedom, where you as a non-party-member get paid thousands of dollars a year to give yourself the last word on internal party controversies.
