The first reply I can find is the one where you asked was I being facetious in my OP… unless there’s something I’m not seeing.
No, I wasn’t being facetious. It occurred to me watching the Cohen hearing that the R response to Cohen was repeated assaults on his character and studious avoidance of engagement with the documentary evidence he provided. And in Jordan’s tweet, no attempt to question Nadler’s subpoenas, just an anti-Semitic trope. And in the 1000+ thread I started on AOC in the Cohen hearing, numerous attacks on her character and numerous misquotes attributed to her but a studious avoidance of engagement on issues.
I was not being facetious when I said conservatism has devolved into character assassination and identity politics.
