The N&O continues to avoid meaningful dialogue with its plea for extended unemployment benefits. Instead, they continue the intellectually lazy and disingenuous argumentative tactic of inventing a false narrative and assigning it to their opponent, and then arguing against what they just invented. I wrote about this commonly used tactic by the left before, and it is tantamount to admission that they are incapable of addressing the actual arguments of their ideological opponents.
Specifically, here is how the N&O describes the mindset of those opposing extending unemployment benefits:
Specifically, tea partyers don’t like a federal program that extended unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed. The anti-attitude was that people were goofing off and not looking for work because they could stay on the unemployment compensation dole.
