From Jim in the comments: (concerning the attack on Roger Scruton):
The first rule of dealing with bullies is come out fighting. Literally in the case of physical bullies, and intellectually in the case of the fascist Left. The attitude to have is ‘I don’t care what happens but I’m not going down without a fight’. Never apologise for anything, double down, re-state your beliefs in clear terms and damn the consequences. Trump has taught us this much, and it got him the Presidency.
I agree, and it’s good to see that Scruton has come out fighting.
Mind you, his doing so has been made much easier by the fact that the evil pieces of dog leavings behind this attack have so obviously twisted his words and taken them out of context. Guido has more on this.
