using the term "ad hom" as a crutch is straight from the mostly-web-based cess pool that spawned the shared writing habits of red pillers, reddit libertarians, and bad-faith pundits

I swear around 2011 or 2012 is when I started seeing people using this more and more, usually in the form of brief, "debate me"-esque quips like "nice ad hom, try again" or whatever. it's a totally bogus shortcut used by people who want to project reasonability without doing any of the work to form a cogent counterargument. it's your smartass high school classmate who said "communism works on paper" and then stopped talking, hoping that you wouldn't ask them to, you know, suss that out in any meaningful way whatsoever.

total fucking herbs use "ad hominem" as a crutch. it's completely devoid of any meaningful use in political discourse in 2019. what these people mean to say is, "I don't like the way you're talking to me, and you're asking me questions I have no interest in answering."

I mean "ad hom" is straight from the shitty message board playbook. it's current popularity as a dumb linguistic flourish is probably directly related to the metastasization of gamergate tactics/rhetoric in conservative media as a whole since like 2014. it's no surprise that shit like this—though small—still manages to trickle down to the Max Boots of the world.

yea they engaged w/ identity politics and when they did the projected their weirdo ideals, aspirations, and insecurities, and mostly wrote themselves out of their own fan fiction. The premise that they've been rejected in part because they are much smarter than other people(and its not hard to feel like this in a public school with middling mental prowess), and that they all have to be in the mold of these "great intellects". But they really really aren't. Its a mental dysphoria. I think for everyone to feel like they are part of the masterfucker race or whatever, they need some Ad Libs, shortcuts, pro forma, performative queues.

tweeting a Bad Word at someone like Max Boot increases the odds of an "ad hom" retort significantly, because for someone as fucking Shit for brains as Max BOot, doing an "ad hom attack" can be as simple as them emphasizing a point with the F-word

I really hope that all these performative bad faith attacks on Omar have the unintended consequence of bringing campaign finance, lobbying, and corruption to the forefront
