Are You An “Apologist”?


I have been called many things in my many years of teaching and lecturing…..but for the first time in my long life I was call an apologist by a friend over coffee the other day…..let me help you out…..the term “apologist” in Right-speak means…….an individual that is not swayed by misinformation and lies……someone that attempts to aid in the understanding of a given situation…..that usually falls on deaf ears.

First I asked him just what was that all about……he replied that I am giving alternate news to what is being reported….and again….how so?

Well after a mish-mash of insulting labels……I stopped him mid sentence……which annoyed him somewhat…..I pointed out that back in the mid 70’s when the Vietnamese were coming into this country….all the talk was that there would be North Vietnam agents hidden within the ranks of the refugees and that they would act as a fifth column to bring about a communist revolution from within….I believe that is called “the Trojan Horse” scenario…..then I asked what happened to that master plan?

Funny few will remember this and all its ugly innuendos….especially Elmo…you see he was one of those that were worried…..

I continued…….

“I give alternate points of view….if that is an apologist then I am one…..if giving facts that contradict your total lack of knowledge…then I am an apologist…….if my statement does not enforce your erroneous statements then…yep I am an apologist.”

“If this is an insult because you do not like my words…then you may call me an apologist…..and if my ignoring of obvious bigoted bullshit…then you be right on target…I am an apologist”

“And if you want me to somehow compromise my beliefs and integrity to conform to your misguided bullshit….then my friend you have a long wait ahead of you….if that makes me an “apologist” then I accept the label.”

My friend stood and glared at me for a moment…..actually I was prepared for some hot coffee to be lobed in my direction….but instead he said very loudly….”Fuck you!” and stormed off in the direction of the exit.

I have found that the term “apologist” is an off-handed insult…..because they do not want to hear anything that may contradict their convoluted thinking…..and then there is their convoluted view of history……they have their opinion and all others are somehow ignorant and blind….I found, like my friend Elmo, there is no way to calmly debate their opinion….for they are right and you are an ignorant bastard for not believing what they are preaching…..

I hindsight maybe I should have let the comment go…..but unfortunately I am one that cannot let bullshit go unchallenged……I may not be an ignorant bastard….but I can be an aggravating one……

I’ll have another cup of Blue Mountain, please.

    I would wager simply asking the one using the term to define it would provide the necessary direction for correcting their ignorance, for, mostly, they will stumble and fumble to come up with what they actually meant by it, other than just an ignorant babbling…. This exposes their own ignorance to them, in a way they can’t dodge…

    Which gets you to the “fuck you” point much quicker, and with less glaring, I’d imagine…

    It’ll always come to that, for ignorance has no desire to change….

      I have noticed that the Right leaning use it constantly when their ignorance is exposed…..any time their conclusions are challenged with rational thought it pisses them off and the best they can do is insult you with the “apologist” BS….thanx for the comment….chuq
