Our political discourse is really in a bad, bad place. It’s gotten to the point where if there’s any kind of disagreement on any topic at all, name calling and not discussion, is the preferred method.
The left loves to throw out such labels as “racist,”sexist,” “homophobe,” and “xenophobe” and does so with such regularity that those words have been rendered absolutely useless.
However, the right isn’t blameless on this point, either. Don’t agree entirely with everything President Donald Trump says and/or does? Well, then you’re just a “libtard,” “communist,” “snowflake” and any evidence challenging a preconceived notion, no matter how compelling, is simply “fake news.”
Well, on Thursday, an official Democratic Twitter account called HUD Secretary Ben Carson “a moron.” Yes, because most brain surgeons are usually complete buffoons.
Yes, we laugh at Ben Carson because he’s a moron, but this is important.
Yesterday, HUD proposed a rule allowing federally funded homeless shelters to discriminate against transgender people. The point here is to punish people for their gender identity. https://t.co/QkuzYSEFw9

But not what’s this is about. They resorted to name calling because he happens to disagree that men aren’t women just because they say they’re women and vice versa.
Twitter responded to the absurd insult.
Someone with a 50-69 IQ is more likely to become a neurosurgeon than a man becoming a woman.

Yet a moron to these people, all because he won’t play make believe with people that need help.

Ben Carson a moron? Are you out of your mind, or just blatant #racists ?
He's a neurosurgeon. Let that sink in.

You know, calling the first person to successfully separate twins conjoined at the brain *and* perform the first successful brain surgery on a baby in utero a "moron" is a supremely stupid take.
