The entire premise of "Taken out of context " should be the liberal mantra , marching slogan and political party saying . Isn't hat how they educate their [our ] younger people and validate their older activists ?
Things are often taken out of context in order to convince people of something that’s not factually correct. If you don’t look for context then you’re not looking at the whole picture, and if you’re not looking at the whole picture then you’re getting the whole truth.
It’s often an excuse that people make if they know the full context can’t be seen but generally you can deduce whether or not there is a context that exists in which what was said/done might not be so bad. Sometimes it doesn’t matter even remotely in which context something was said/done, it’s still bad.
But if you’re seeing people frequently saying “that was taken out of context” then perhaps the problem is not with pointing it out, but rather the other people consistently taking things out of context to push a narrative.
I’m not sure what you’re referring to specifically in terms of educating younger people, but... yeah... I sure hope kids are being educated on the importance of context.
Well exactly , that's pretty much what I'm saying , except for the agenda of half truths and I say again ,the exploiting of half truths . The media is so famous for this very act of sensationalizing partial truths that the new -left seems to have strongly adopted in recent years . I knew the old left , I graduated from it .
The new left is all about altered truths . My point is that it's SO obvious as to make it plainly view-able in any online news media today . In fact , to the point that it is excruciating and painfully obvious. I could do an entire HUB series on the fabrication of contextual half truths and innuendo in mainstream media . Now, I admit that the marginal far right has returned fire , before you accuse , but the flagrant misuse of truth is OWNED by the left.
In the end , even the left is admitting it's political / media driven loss in this twisted agenda. Wouldn't you consider this sad when one considers the importance of how many young ears will eventually be lost to the liberal political roster. In a totally two party system ,isn't the truth is more important than short term winning ?
More liberals are little different from new anything. You have to hold a position for a time in order to fully create depth of understanding.
Don't blame kids for this. They are starry eyed, easily swayed and lacking a full understanding of life. Take me. I was once a born again, young Republican. Life taught me the error of many beliefs I held.

I am going to stop debating with Atheists for various reasons. But I am a saved Christian and my heart breaks to see people going to hell. So I am putting up one last debate. My intention is to try to make at least one...

Why do people resort to name-calling when making a political argument?I find this behavior highly offensive and have to stop myself from responding with the same tone of the original poster. I've always believed that...
