You may have noticed the name Stanley Hauerwas suddenly popping up in Glenn's every second post. I. P. Watcher thinks this is an good example of how Glenn manufactures outrage against a specific target:First, he links to an (supposedly) outrageous article of his victim.
Second, he somehow connects this victim to something negative.
Third, he links to anybody agreeing with him.
Fourth, if anybody disagrees with him, he either doesn't acknowledge it, or he uses it as another springboard for an attack on the original subject.
Fifth, he'll report on reader feedback showing that they overwhelmingly support him, occasionally skewering whichever unfortunate person is the token dissenter.
Finally, he reports on anything negative other bloggers may say about his victim. He also keeps up the smear campaign, again by connecting the victim with anything his readers will percieve as negative.
