I have frequently heard on this and other boards, the term " Appologist " used but do not understand why. You see, in most cases, no applogy of any sort is offered, yet those bashing this or other actions will call the people that don't agree with them " Appologists ". This term in this context therefore does not make sense. I have heard of Neo Con appologists, Dem Appologists, Cop Appologists, NRA Appologists and various forms of religious Appologists. In not one instance has someone taking some sort of opposite stand or offering possible explanations for a certain position Appologized.
Why do folks use this term? Could it be simply as a tool to somehow inflate their ego with the concept that their particular position on the issue is the only possible correct position, or is it simple ignorance?
