A troll posted this on a website I frequent.

http://www.politifake.org/derp-baltimore-riots-homophobia-bill-flores-politics-62717.html

If there's not more to that quote than was supplied, then I would likely say it is more about the rise of single parent households in the black communities, with some baiting thrown in.

Looks like I was right, http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/30/bill-flores-gop-lawmaker-ties-baltimore-riots-to-g/ Tongue

But the troll that is trying to argue with me about this still claims that Texas Republican Rep. Bill Flores suggested Tuesday that the ongoing unrest in Baltimore is largely due to the “breakdown of the family,” which he tied to the legalization of gay MARRIAGE.

Basically the troll does not understand basic argumentative techniques.

It is clear that this is a case of "contextomy" and the politician is being taken out of context to make him look bad.

Clearly he is saying the gay marriage would make the riots worse, rather than blaming the riots on gay marriage. Thus he is baiting his followers with some red meat, rather than doing what she claims - that the Politicians is blaming the Baltimore riots on gay marriage.

Just wanted to a consensus of debaters to show her (the troll) what I already know - that I won this debate hands down.
