‘The Village Idiot SPEAKS’! ThinkProgress’ Ian Millhiser takes ‘BIZARRE’ swipe at Jonah Goldberg

Earlier today, National Review published a post by Jonah Goldberg and Ramesh Ponnuru defending conservative criticism of Donald Trump.

“Conservative Criticism of Trump Is Not Deluded”
A thoughtful piece by @JonahNRO and @RameshPonnuru.
But I’d ask my conservative friends to face up to the ways in which mainstream conservatism contributed to #Trump‘s rise. He’s not an accident.https://t.co/obfrwTnAQr

That’s fine and I agree (and have been). But I think liberals should also think about how they invited the backlash that Trump rode. There’s plenty of blame across the ideological spectrum. https://t.co/XtcYlUU1UI

Nobody asked ThinkProgress’ Ian Millhiser what he thought of Goldberg and Ponnuru’s piece, but that didn’t stop him from weighing in from waaaaay out in Left field:

I’m fascinated by this thread of extortion in conservative rhetoric — “give us our assault rifles and let us refuse to serve gay people or else the entire country gets it!” https://t.co/SbEoVqd7yA

I’m fascinated by your bizarre misreading of my point. But not that fascinated. https://t.co/PzIBLN4NF4

We know it’s a given that Millhiser will say something stupid and incoherent, but seriously … this sounds like it was pulled out of Mike Huckabee’s colon.

and you pretty much just made @JonahNRO‘s point. Any disagreement in policy is immediately met by the Left with ad hominem exaggeration mocking the right for their guns and Bibles.

Yeah, those are folks we can reason with
