I witness the "fist full of jelly" that he writes about and it's uncanny how accurate an analogy it is.

I would never dox myself by posting these, but I have friendly emails between a colleague who happens to be from a certain tribe. This colleague has been nothing but a professional in our interactions, he is the one people would point to and say "see look they aren't so bad". And in the professional world I would have no evidence to the contrary. However, he likes to send the MSNBC style talking points to our group email list quite regularly. This entire group has defended dissertations at one point in their lives and are capable of rhetoric, so you would think it's high level discourse, but trust me, it is exactly as described in mein kampf.

I never reply back because as you all know, it's hard to hide power levels, but this individual will intentionally forget solid points the more conservatives members make, he will intentionally misuse statistics in a way that he would routinely lambast in a professional setting. If you were to read the group emails it might throw you off if you did not know better, because everyone is so respectful due to professional courtesy. But after a few weeks you'd be thinking to yourself "typical tricks".
