The left only wants ‘conversations’ that it controls
The way Leni Riefenstahl had a conversation with the German people.
"“I can understand the objection of people who did have an issue about it,” Couric said. (The “it” here is the deliberate falsifying of the truth). “Having said that, I think we have to focus on the big issue of gun violence. It was my hope that, when I approached this topic, that this would be a conversation starter.”
Well, OK then. After all, who denies that starting conversations — or, as they often call them in academia, “dialogues” — is the highest aspiration there is?
For instance, a Central Michigan University professor claimed last year that she was punched in the face at a Toby Keith concert for being a lesbian. She later admitted she actually punched herself, but said it was worth it because she wanted to start a dialogue."
They want a conversation where you listen and convert, not speak.
