One of the common attack/deflect methods of the various Righteous drones has always been to start out making accusations and threats, then, when they inevitably start losing the argument, they pretend to be the ones who are being accused and threatened.
This was around on the old Compuserve boards and it hasn’t changed yet.
Now that the cat is out of the bag – the tobacco template is obviously being applied across the board to the extent that ‘sugar is as bad as tobacco and booze’ – the Righteous use this same trick once again.

Sugar is not like tobacco. So why does the sugar industry keep borrowing tobacco industry terms?
Because those are the terms that are being thrown at them by you and your friends, Caroline. The sugar industry did not invent the rules of this battle.
She helpfully links to a ‘hysterical newspaper report‘ linking sugar to tobacco and alcohol – one of many – while ignoring the detail that the hysteria in those stories comes from the ‘scientists’ quoted within its paragraphs.
Funny she didn’t link to the one containing this particular quote –
There are many more out there along the same lines. So, Caroline, do you see now why the sugar industry thinks you want it as controlled and stamped on as the tobacco industry? It’s because you do, and your cohorts have stated so, in plain and unambiguous terms.
It’s no good trying the ‘We are the victims and they are the bullies’ game any more. It worked when only a limited number of people were able to see it in action at one time. It worked on those obscure message boards and chatrooms.
Now it’s in the newspapers, the newspapers are digital and they are archived for anyone to search through and read. No more ‘today’s news, tomorrow’s chip-wrapper’. It’s all there forever.
She closes with this line –
Everyone loves sugar. Unlike the tobacco industry, you’ve got nothing to worry about.
Be afraid, sugar industry. Be very afraid.
