It is just another way of saying your choices are somebody else's fault.

I agree that is is wrong to assume all conservatives are Nazis, White Supremacists, etc., but that is a poor excuse. Especially since he lashed out in a personal attack, and conservatives have their fair share of hyperbolic group descriptions of liberals.

Yes, that is what Kyle's argument sort of breaks down to and it is not ok to use overgeneralizations as a basis for attacking somebody else. It just is not.

And just because somebody else did it somewhere (or even here) is not a free pass to return fire on the same level.

Just because poster x did something wrong does not make what poster y did in response ok.

Personal attacks in particular are not ok. Generalities to some degree are more ok, but it is more of a judgement call. Saying all of an opposing ideology are Nazi's is not ok. Making a generality on an ideology with an article and trying to build a case may or may not be ok depending on how it is done. But over the years most people do ok.
