…..ok, my responses to this were based on the assumption it was going somewhere, that it was building to an explanation of views that had wrongly been construed as an endorsement of slavery or racism or some such. But it was just a long elaboration on “don’t listen to twitter mobs, they’re unfair”. Which is valid, I’m just disappointed there isn’t more intellectual meat here. I mean, “twitter mobs are wrong” is practically a tautology. Yeesh, it’s a bunch of screaming primates on there, I agree with the author on that. It’s like everybody’s id is the only part of their personalities able to express itself in 140 characters or less.
