    Indeed, when you can’t argue facts or logic try demagogy. But demagogy doesn’t usually requires at least a bit of logic on your side.

  2. Boonton,
    You’re assuming “interesting” implies some sort of value judgement. It does not.

  3. Never said you endorsed it. Only you are correct in that it is an interesting example of demagogy. If you ever want to write a textbook on rhetoric you may want to see if you can get the rights to that image.
