“But did you know El back in the old days? Those of us who do, miss her as she was.”
No, I just encountered her recently. What was she like, and what appeared to have happened, in your view? Are you saying that she moved into being more woke? Or what?
In reviewing the few more recent comments I’ve seen from her (an unselected but small sample which may not be representative), I would be more embarrassed than pleased to have her “on my side”. For example:
This is just sooo typical of the argumentation style of neo-progressives: we’ll assert that anything we dislike is discredited, providing nothing better than a wikipedia link which just shows that there is some controversy with some supporters and some opponents (which nobody denies). Her article on ROGD, after a special additional review under pressure from critics/activists, was edited in minor ways and republished with the results section unchanged. How is that constitute being “discredited”, much less “famously” so?
I’m not seeing a style of argument I want to endorse, whether they agree or disagree with me. Was it previously different?
