Fallacies On Parade: Suey Park / #CancelColbert Edition


In the first four paragraphs, we get two straw men, an ad hominem, and a bit of buzzword bingo ("the Other," "colonialism").

No need to go any farther. 

Bad theories make people stupid.

Even if you're lucky enough to be blessed with good wetware (and that remains to be seen with respect to Park), it won't help if you're running shitty software. And bad theories are shitty software. Seeing the world through the lens of a bad theory is like running a stupidity emulator. Maybe Park isn't really stupid...but even if not, you certainly can't tell it from this article...
