- Reaction score
For starters, I don’t like that we can say people can have different opinions about factual matters.OK.I heard you and I gave you a considered response. Not all opinions are honest opinions as I stated above and which you’ve ignored.Seems you dont get it.There are honest opinions and there are dishonest opinions. Dishonest opinions are those based on lies and distortions told not to reflect reality but to achieve a different purpose.An opinion is an opinion. It is how one reads a situation. You can say that person is wrong...but that will be your opinion.
Tucker Carlson argued his opinions are not honest and any rational person would know this.
His opinions are his opinions. You have the right to disagree....but to call his opinions as lies is like me calling your opinions as lies.
But I dont.
Seems you dont like those who have opinions different than yours. Worse, seems you prefer to call those opinions lies.
In other words, you dont want to consider opinions that differ from yours. THAT is the problem.
Seems you are the one that doesn’t get it.
Thats your opinion.
So now I could do what you are doing....call your opinion a lie because I don't agree with it.....or, consider your opinion as an opinion....which is how I roll.
When one feels the superiority to call ones opinion a lie, all debate is lost....and that means we all lose.
And that is the problem with a forum such as this one.
No, it’s not an opinion that the world is flat. The world is either round or it’s flat. There cannot be “opinions”.
Second, people can (and do) propagate opinions not because they believe it but because they want others to believe it.
If you think that’s not true, then I’ve got bad news for you. It is. Some people are liars.
At the end of the day, my “opinion” of Tucker Carlson is backed up by the statements of his lawyers who have stated no one is to take him seriously. No reasonable person would consider his opinion honest.
And that fact is how he gets away with defamation.
