Ezra Klein: "Yes Means Yes Is A Terrible Law, And I Completely Support It"

   Enmeshed as I am in my Grand Unified Conspiracy theory according to which the Illuminati are deploying quantum gravity generators that run on dark matter to shoot globs of very tightly-wound superstrings at universities in order to provide fire-support in service of political correctness and...gender studies profs...or something something their plot to ban all books from campuses and force all classes to be taught using only the current week's posts from Salon and Jezebel...oh and PowerPoint presentations on made-up enmeshed anyway...this I interpret as yet more evidence that "progressives" are leaning hard over toward the Dark Side. Which is, of course, a totally racist thing to say. Also, it's totally only one case. But it's Ezra Klein, and I think he's likely to be representative of a certain group. So it's not proof, it's yet more cause for concern. EVERYTHING IS CAUSE FOR CONCERN WAKE UP SHEEPLE

[Also I'd like to yet again harp on the fact that this type of legislation is not correctly describe by the phrase 'Yes' means 'yes.' It is correctly described by the phrase: No 'yes' means 'no.'  This is almost the opposite of 'yes' means 'yes.']

lol it's not "almost the opposite of 'yes' means 'yes'" you weirdo.

It is stupid, though.

It is very far over toward the diametrically opposed sector of the relevant space, you freak of nature.

Ah I remember reading this article, it was terrible then, and it's terrible now. "This law is terrible and unworkable but I support it" -- really, should anything couched in such terms ever be acceptable?

I also seem to remember a time when "Keep the government out of our bedrooms" was a liberal rallying cry.

Jebus, right? I hadn't even thought of that aspect of it all, C.

Man, that is exactly the right point to make.

I suppose "keep the government out of our bedrooms" is now a retrograde thought. Why care if the government is in your bedroom...unless you've got something to hide...?

Also: I did not realize Ezra Klein is an idiot of psychopathic magnitude.

He's writing that we have to convict innocent people of heinous crimes with a law which we know will do that so that we can send a message to people who might actually commit heinous crimes.

Maybe he's stared too long into the Interwebs, 'cause he sure sounds like a reddit troll.
