I did so for brevity only. I could have also put it this way…
We argue about the Dolphins. I say in one sentence that Dolphins fans are unable to see flaws in their own team. Then in the next sentence I say that anyone who defends Ryan Fitzpatrick as a starting QB is an idiot.
I could play a game and pretend that I was not insulting all Dolphins fans, just people “in general” who defend Fitzpatrick. But it is clear what I meant by the first sentence leading to the other.
BwanaBob made it even clearer though, by saying in the first sentence that “the Right” only accepts issues based on “Old Testament - punishment methodology”. Then making the crude remark about ejaculating over the concept of “punishing those who made poor decisions”.
Arguing that the comment wasn’t directed against right-wing people is like saying “DIE BART DIE” is in German and not a threat at all. (Simpsons reference for those unfamiliar.)
