What I did was what I normally do: use your own Doublethink against
you. Your clones' argument was originally that all authorities agreed
with them. Knowing how you think, which is always predictable, I got
you to name authorities who did not.
You are used to a Politically Correct environment, where such
Doublethink never gets challenged, so now you think you can forget you
ever claimed everybody agree with you there is no such thin as race, all
race are equal, and all the other stuff you repeat.
You want me to deal with you as if you were actually saying
something logical and original, instead of just regurgitating Political
Coorectness, and I won't do it.
