There’s a line between pitching a fit because you don’t like what’s being said and engaging in a full-on character attack using misinformation to support your hateful confirmation bias. Charles Hermes, a college lecturer at the University of Texas at Arlington, has his SJW diaper in a twist because our own Steven Crowder is scheduled to appear at SMU on March 22nd (get information here). Rather than act like a reasonable human being by practicing common decency and civility, Mr. Hermes took a more animalistic approach. Flinging his feces like a dancing paint artist at Burning Man.

Now, flattered though we are Mr. Hermes considers Steven popular, he’s wrong about… well based on the musings he posts to Facebook, everything. For brevity, we’ll focus in on this little gem cited above.
Firstly, Steven is as much an “alt-right Neo-Nazi” as Mr. Hermes is Isaac Newton. Mr. Hermes’ grasp on facts suggests he’s less a titan of reason, more the love child of Harambe and a hot glue gun. Clicking through the comments of the above posting, Mr. Hermes uses “screen captures” of “Steven Crowder” tweets to support the Neo-Nazi claims. Fact check: false.
Here are the screen captures:
I have some bad news for Mr. Hermes. Those are faked screen captures, looking to have been created in Microsoft Paint. They can be found on The Daily Stormer, a Neo-Nazi hate site.
Here’s one of the tweets Hermes puked into his comment section.
Anyone else notice how the letters don’t line up? The type is off almost as much as Hermes’ understanding of reality. Plus, Steven knows how to use a comma. Dead giveaway it’s a fake.
But I was feeling curious — inspired, some might say — about our lecturer from Texas. Who teaches philosophy. One of his courses (here’s a full list) includes a class on logic. I poop you not. Here’s the course description for Philosophy 2311-002:
We frequently know that some arguments are good while others are bad. There are multiple things, however, that can go wrong with an argument. Sometimes, we draw bad conclusions by assuming something that is false. At other times, the problem is deeper. We can reach bad conclusions from true premises if there is something wrong in the structure of how we reason. In this class we will explore the structures of good reasoning.
Who wants to tell Mr. Hermes double-spacing between sentences went the way of the typewriter?
There are multiple things, however, that went wrong in Mr. Hermes’ Steven Crowder attack. Not least of which was Mr. Hermes possibly being used as a soccer ball when he was but an infant, swaddled in radioactive rags. Good reasoning should not begin with fake tweets created in Microsoft Paint to tantalize Neo-Nazi mama’s boys on Daily Stormer. Just as a start.
Secondly, calling someone a “Nazi” then demanding that Nazi be threatened or silenced simply because you don’t like what he said (though it’s clear Mr. Hermes is fuzzy on Steven’s actual platform), makes you a fascist. That’s right. I’m calling Charles Hermes a fascist. Rather than disagree with Steven, rather than invite Steven to debate him, rather than encourage others to hear what Steven has to say so they can combat him with their own ideas, Mr. Hermes advocated for the banning and silencing of Steven Crowder. As any good and loyal fascist would.
Par for the leftist course. Leftists always seek to silence ideas or words they cannot fight with their own ideas or words. I agree the previous sentence is overly simple, but I am writing about the progeny of an ape’s one night romp with glue gun. Know your audience.
Actually, let’s carry the “know your audience” two steps further. I scrolled through Charles Hermes’ Facebook wall. Guess what I found? Oh heck, I’m feeling generous.
Seems he’s hinting something. Can’t quite put my finger on what.
Leftists who generally label people “Nazis” as a way to dehumanize them, are often completely fine with violence against Nazis. It’s one reason people like Charles Hermes say “This person is a Nazi. Nazis are evil. Ergo violence against Nazis is perfectly fine.” Lather, rinse, repeat as you write a rhyming chant.
Mr. Hermes’ false message is spreading. A fellow flying monkey managed to peck several paragraphs into Perkins School of Theology’s public Facebook group page (screen capture below). Leftist fascists (redundant, I know, but has to be said) are doing whatever it takes to intimidate Steven into silence.
And they’re trying to silence you, Steven’s audience and fans, by extension.
The left isn’t interested in debating ideas. They want Nazi-like obedience. The left isn’t interested in hearing ideas. They want verboten ideas banned. Rather than engaging in the arena of ideas, leftist fascists like Charles Hermes and his acolytes, use hateful smear campaigns to attack people opposed to their fascist ways of “thinking.” We just got wind of it this time.
We’re fighting these fascists every day. But we need your help.
