It's called projection.

Projection, indeed. A very telling look into the soul of the man. These people actually wish to harm and / or silence their critics, and thus are unable to grasp that we do not wish to harm or silence them, but rather debate with them in the arena of ideas, in order to show beyond a shadow of a doubt which side is able to defend its position to the satisfaction of all reasonable watchers.

I should be used to this by now, but I'm continually amazed at the sheer lack of confidence the AGW crowd has in its ability to defend their underlying science. Silence us, instead of proving us wrong for all the world to see.

Projection, delusion, compounded with agressiveness, anxiety. Without a shadow of a doubt.

Maybe it's because of some troll said in some comments that if that dingbat feel a need to beat on someone he should try on a troll instead.

They are, after all, ever so high and mighty of the import of proxies.
