I was wrong!

I received a comment yesterday on my post regarding commonly used fallacies that stated:

"This is mostly because liberals have a problem admitting wrongs lest their entire argument be blown out of the water. "

And I responded with:

"Great example of an Abusive Personal Attack Fallacy."

OK, I started thinking about this and realized I have, on many occasions, made similar kinds of remarks in reference to conservatives. An example may be: "those conservatives are always trying to steal money from the poor." I began looking through my posts on this page, but could not find any of those types of statements right off the bat, but I'm sure there is one somewhere.

So, I want to apologize to all conservatives for any generalizations that I've made regarding conservatives as a whole. From now on I will try to refer to "the current administration...", "many Republican members of Congress...", or even "many conservatives believe...".

So please accept my apology for using these general blanket statements. I know many conservative-minded people, most of which aren't bad people. I just simply disagree with their ideology. I welcome conservatives to comment on any topic posted here, but I do reserve the right to delete anyone's comment from either side of the fence if I feel that it adds little to no value to the discussion, or if it is loaded with fallacies like the above comment made by "Anonymous"
