A Takedown of a Mealy-Mouthed Nominee

Josh Hawley does a very impressive examination of Coleen J. Shogan, who has been nominated for US Archivist. He is cool but relentless.

Please see the paper he references – she is condemned out of her own mouth – you may be able to access a copy from your online library system. The one in the link is expensive – $25.

I’ve been up for a short time – about an hour. I’ve seen interesting links, followed them, thought about posting, and then said, “Nah”.

Why not?

I’ve been involved for several days in a tedious and lengthy back & forth on Facebook, with someone who I’ve known for years. I respect her, in a professional sense. I like her as a person.

However, she is a hardhead about politics. In her view, ALL the Left is noble, rightly motivated for Good, and any opposition is variously:

  • Uninformed (she is diligent about finding Leftist “Fact-Checkers” to refute any information that contradicts her closely held beliefs).
  • Bigoted – well, she IS on the side of Truth, Goodness, and The Light, so that makes any who disagree with her innately Evil – or, at least, just Dumb Enough to fall for such Obvious Lies.
  • A False Christian – one who does read the Bible, and tries to follow its guidelines, but, somehow, manages not to realize that failing to line up with Leftist Commandments makes them a Bad Christian. And, Stupid.
  • Anti-Woman. Which, since I am obviously a Woman, means that my Patriarchal, Overbearing Spouse has clearly forbidden me to see the Light. Which is a really interesting and surprising situation, as my husband always votes Democrat, and generally supports the Left’s goals.

The BEST any opponent could be is Stupid, Deluded, or Uninformed. Therefore, she responds to any post, meme, or comment with full-bore Leftist Attack. Isn’t just satisfied to move past the post, put a short “I disagree” comment, or mute my feed.

Nope. I get the Fully Monty of Replies – WAY more than you ever wanted to see.

On the positive side, I’ve reduced my social media time to immediate family and friends, and only for the purposes of getting information about our lives, and occasionally sharing family photos or news.

I’m also spending more time on blogging, writing, journaling, and doing useful things for home and business. So, Win-Win.

    You probably need to cut ties. I don’t know you or her but recent history suggests a high likelihood that she’ll be a danger to you. Whether the progressive terror mob continues their gains in legal untouchability and therefore confidence in attacking all unbelievers or they suffer setbacks and lash out in a tantrum, there’s a chance too large to be discounted that she’ll point the mob at you.
