Robin Edgar must have some difficulty reading. Either that, or he can’t think beyond a rigid and immature ‘black-and-white’ mentality. This is evident in his constantly accusing UU minister and blogger Cynthia Cain of ‘demonizing and marginalizing Republicans.’ As he asserts in his latest blog post:
Rev. Cynthia P. Cain never said all mean people are Republicans; what she said was all Republicans were mean people…
Mister Edgar, she did not even say that. She called out Republican Party leaders of mean-spirited and uncivil rhetoric. Show us, please, where she said that all Republicans are mean people.
No surprise, however, that Robin Edgar stoops to such slander. He can only think in the extremes of idealization and devaluation (and more of the latter than the former). Say something he doesn’t like, and he resorts to hyperbole and sweeping generalization to devalue and denigrate you. Especially when you are an ordained UU minister.
Nor will it help if, after making a questionable blog post, you decide to remove it. No, then he accuses you of the manufactured transgression of ‘memory-holing,’ and treats you exactly the same as if you had left the blog post up – obsessively repeating the same accusations, insults, attacks and denigrations over and over and over and over and over again and again and again and again and again.
Mister Edgar, it doesn’t matter if you ‘paraphrase’ Horace Greeley. Defamation is still defamation. Distorting the facts goes against the UU principle of a free and responsible search for meaning and truth which you so claim to uphold. More’s the pity that you refuse to see how unhealthy, counterproductive and dysfunctional your fixations, perseverations and angry rants really are. We again implore you to seek professional help, as so many have recommended.
