Yeah, it's the mentality that "This doesn't make me happy, so it must be untrue!"
 
You can hold onto false beliefs forever under that system.

 ... and that's being generous in terms of the level of consideration that goes on in an authoritarian's head regarding the validity of their emotional responses ... and of course it's also just the tip of the iceberg (and that simile applies particularly well in this case).

Why is that relevant? I'm kind of sick of this stuff. It isn't enough to disagree with Cher, you have to make fun of her looks. It isn't enough to say you disagree with Obama, you have to say his wife looks like a man, or whatever. There are some damned ugly guys on both sides of the aisle, but if a woman participates in our civic life, we make fun of how she looks. What a load. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Their Fearless Leader does the same thing.  What did he do with Carly Fiorina, or Megyn Kelly, or the Hispanic Miss Universe contestant ...

Dunno about Badger, but it's typical for a far right winger to come up with something negative (some poo) to throw at the opposition if the actual subject doesn't provide anything convenient. The subject isn't important so much as the score.
