Doctor Fauci dismissed a physicist’s warning that the Chinese COVID numbers were fabricated, saying that the warning was “too long to read.” If my seven years teaching high school taught me anything, it is this: When people don’t understand something, they claim it is “long and boring.” I saw high school students do this all of the time.
This is the crux of the entire issue with the left: they don’t understand anything, therefore they find it long and boring, and dismiss it out of hand. Guns, math, basically anything becomes too difficult and dry to even try and comprehend, hence they govern their behavior with feelings instead of logic.
Look at Larry Correia’s dismantling of the 2020 election. Statistics is a valid branch of mathematics. Using math, one can show that the results of the election are not possible. Democrats don’t understand that, so they dismiss it.
Same with gun laws. Logic and math are incomprehensible, so we will FEEL instead. When that doesn’t work because people won’t accept it, they throw a temper fit and go all Princess Stampy Feet.
