Hawkins Vs. Corsi: The 4th And Final Round
My 4th and final attack on Jerome Corsi’s conspiracy theory series that claims George Bush is going to, “dissolve the United States of America into the North American Unio and “ merge our currency into a US/Canadian/Mexican “Amero,” is now up at Human Events.
This time, I stopped pulling my punches. Here are a couple of samples:
“…Jerome doesn’t want to admit that he got his facts wrong and that there’s nothing scary about building a road. Jerome, is there something you want to tell us about why you’re so afraid of a road? Was someone you loved paved over when you were a child?”
“…I’m glad to have had a chance to point out the sort of gibberish you’re spouting on the pages of Human Events, even if I have had to suffer the indignity of debating this complete stupidity, which is about two steps removed from arguing over whether the moon is made of green cheese.”
Update #1: Jerome Corsi responded to my latest post with 2400+ words of pure sophistry, none of which did anything to counter the arguments I made or advance Jerome’s bizarre theories.
Apparently, Jerome wants to continue the debate. However, I’m mindful of something Rush Limbaugh said today: If you argue with an idiot long enough, soon people have trouble telling the difference between you and an idiot.
You know, I was saying nice things about Corsi way back in 2004 when he was a member of the Swift Boat Vets for truth and I was pleased to see that he wrote a book with Jim Gilchrist from the Minutemen (who I hold in high regard). That’s why it’s really too bad to see him permanently destroying his credibility with this wacko conspiracy theory. But, for whatever reason, he’s decided to go down this road that can only lead to embarrassment and humiliation.
PS: Oh, I wish I would have seen this earlier. Apparently Jerome Corsi didn’t even realize that Canada is already part of NAFTA.
“Secretly, the Bush administration is pursuing a policy to expand NAFTA to include Canada, setting the stage for North American Union designed to encompass the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. What the Bush administration truly wants is the free, unimpeded movement of people across open borders with Mexico and Canada.”
