I will never learn to not poke the stupid people.
Over at Dr. Roy's blog, the foul-mouthed right-wing toady wonders if anyone on "the left" would denounce the killing of an army recruiter in Arkansas. Yes, one would wonder that as lefties have long called for the death of army recruiters.
Commenter Louise has this to say:
"Will the left denounce this? They'll probably secretly cheer it. They certainly won't be able to blame it on "Christianists". As well, Louise refuted the idea that anyone was cheering the death of Dr. George Tiller.
Already the burning stupid is making itself known. "They will probably secretly cheer it". The ultimate strawman; there will be no proof, but it will happen. As for blaming it on fundamental Christians, well, that is about as likely as blaming it on bald plumbers. We might blame religious fundamentalists, or religious fanatics, because that is what is happening here. The killer wasn't a lefty, unless fanatical muslims are suddenly turning away from their holy book and embracing the fascist/socialist/commie ways we lefties hold so dear.
Now, because I am dumb, I pointed out to Louise that a number of high profile bloggers, commenters, and media pundits have called for the death of Dr. George Tiller, or cheered his murder.
And, although she isn't but a blip on the blogsphere, I have to mention a true Christian and her contribution to the discussion. Debra M. Smith chooses to not only condemn Dr. Tiller, but his family as well:
"And I do not feel sorry for a family who loved a murderer. And I sure do NOT feel sorry for a church that had no problem allowing a murderer to attend."
But this is what we can expect for a lunatic who claims that people mistake her kindness for passiveness. One look at this douchebag's website will disavow the reader that Mrs. Smith has a kind bone in her hateful body.
But I digress...
Back to Louise, who's witty rejoinder to my request for some proof of her statements is that she really did mean "secretly". Thus spake Louise:
"Of course I won't be able to find lefty blogs that openly cheer the murder of an army recruiter."
Insert big sigh here. And, of course, she calls me stupid for calling her on her bullshit. Really, the fault is mine for "debating" this troglodyte. Mea culpa. Louise can say whatever she wants, add the word secretly, and claim victory without providing evidence. Utterly and brilliantly devious! Reminds me of someone...
It reminds me of the time Reggie said to Archie, "What if I told you that you could make $50 by dressing like a cow and selling milk for Pop Tate at the big game?" Oh the hilarity that would ensue as Archie pursued his goal, only to be told by Reggie that "I said what if?" Zoink! Chumped again.
