You can't refute anything I said, so instead you decide it's hysteria. You
could at least not steal the word I used in the first place.

I seem to have missed the documentation you provided for your "facts." Cite
me chapter and verse for your outrageous statements, and I'll be glad to
respond in kind.

It's a cute but transparent tactic to attack the messenger rather than the
message. Instead of refuting anything I said, you suddenly decide you're
above the fray. You started the entirely inappropriate discussion, but now
you can't take the heat when someone openly disagrees. So you try to make
the discussion about me, instead of about the political issues you raised.

That's really all. I don't have time for this kind of nonsense.
