Holding Accountable Those Who Supposedly Hold Others Accountable

Hey, O'Reilly, this new G.I. bill that you've been championing of late (you know, the one that you criticized co-sponsor, John Kerry, of not pushing forward aggrssively enough), it appears that Senator John McCain has yet to jump on board in favor of it. Yeah, that's right, "Mr.- Support-the-Troops" himself has yet to endorse YOUR BILL. Kind of disappointing, don't you think? I mean, seriously, you are going to call him on it, right? Bill? RIGHT?

I don't know if you're who or what you claim to be but,

Interesting dialogue on Lydia's board earlier...LOL

You've stumbled into the den of god's chosen ones. I don't know if you're familiar with Dr. Sanity, but she covered them awhile back:

"Anyone who opposes their policies is automatically branded as racist, sexist, homophobic, islamophobic-- take your pick, depending on the circumstances."


"In addition to externalizing blame for one's own pitiful situation in life, there is yet another advantage to paranoia and projection: often, a creative distortion of reality can reliably pump up one's own self-esteem. You are righteous, persecuting the true racists and you, yourself, are incapable of any racist thoughts or emotions. Sometimes, it pumps it that self-esteem up at the expense of a great deal of fear; but nevertheless, it is comforting to know that someone appreciates your genius or the threat you represent. Clearly if the CIA, FBI, aliens, Jews , POTUS, Republicans [fill in your favorite bogeyman here] are out to get you, you must be special and unique."


Good luck with them. I'll watch with much amusement...

Voltron said...

Interesting as well, they seem to have the ability to delete posts and make it appear that the author themselves did it...

They pulled that one on me once too, I'd run a bug scan if I were you.

They're definitely not a proponent of independent thought, that's for sure. Like, for instance, they would never criticize Obama for his strong support of expanding coal production in that, no, it doesn't fit their agenda. Rank partisanship, pure and simple.

Voltron said...

Keep watching and/or interacting.

It goes WAAAAYYY beyond rank partisanship.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Do you still leave postings there, Voltron?

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

You're right, Voltron. There's a strong thread of mean-spiritedness throughout their missives. I especially like how she has a couple of stooges doing the bulk of her dirty-work.

THU said...

Ahh good afternoon Votron, i hope things are well with you sir.

THU said...

I shall kindly repost my posts here in the previous thread so the blog owner may refute them if he dares.

Votron, please tell that ruffian Freedom Fan, Thu is coming for him, I shall address his drivel this evening sir. in fact i look forward to it.

Looks like lonely boy dolty has found himself a new boyfriend.

Voltron said...

I do post there on occasion.
But if you address them in kind they'll delete it rather quickly.

You see, THEY seem to have a trademark on the "TRUTH™". In my first post I believe I covered it.

Paranoia, projection AND PURE NARCISSISM.

They're standing between us and fascism, they're pure and good and if you disagree with them you're simply EVIL. And to them, the ends justify the means. Nothing is off limits, they'll drag you, your family and anyone you care about through the mud trying to make their point.

Cliffy is an excellent example. Never met a more brilliant man. Knows everything about everything, served his country and will beat you over the head with it every chance he gets. I think he's bitter about not making secretary of defense or something. Dearly LOVES his country too, he can't really ever seem to find anything good to say about it, but he loves it anyway.
Ask him about his epiphany during the first gulf war.

Lydia is a study in contradiction as well. Seems nice enough, preaches about love and peace, but will lie and twist facts when and if it suits her agenda. She comes off as naive but has an devious streak. She made her blogging debut by trying to bait Ann Coulter and then being offended when Ann didn't respond in the way she had hoped. (she emailed Ann playing innocent and asking for information to use against her. She had put her husbands business contact info on her email and Ann posted it. So Lydia caused a stir by claiming it was her HOME address and phone.)
Still refers to Ann with an array of aliases for the devil.

And Thu here is simply a hoot. I can't remember what he claimed his nationality was, I think it was oriental of some sort, lived in England for awhile. For some reason he writes with an english accent that'd do Churchill proud. He's not around much, maybe once or twice a year, (probably takes a lot of time to stuff his shirts) but he did name my blog...LOL

Bartlebee is another one you haven't tangled with either. Barf as I call him is a religeous scholar that can provide all kinds of quotes to debunk anything you ever thought was true. Almost always paints it in a bad light, unless he's using it to further the agenda. He's also a master at parsing a sentence. He'll infer plenty, but when called on it will say he never said that.

The rest you'll find out on your own. They are pretty well to the left too, but are more or less pawns for the true idealists.

Just think "Narcissists" and you'll be ok. And really, they are better than the rest of us.

Voltron said...

Ah, unless I were to seem remiss I should also say Good Evening to you Thu. You'll have to take your chances with FF. He doesn't post terribly often anymore. He does drop by my place on occasion but you'll probably grow old waiting.

clif said...

Do ya miss your old boy ..... friend dolty?

Candace said...

Geez, this is like when I take my dog, Scruffybutt, walkies - I have to watch my step because not everyone carries a poopy bag. :)

ANYway, I just came over to thank you, Will, for leaving such a nice comment on mah blog, AND to see what Orally's up to because I just can't stand to watch him. McCain's a huge disappointment to the likes of Orally, and that can only be a good thing.

Um, carry on.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Thank you, Voltron. Very insightful comments. They actually think I'm some sort of secret agent (a conservative pretending to be a liberal when in truth I'm neither) and, yes, they're very persistent about it (the paranoia stuff, right?). And I just hate all this pigeon-holing they do. Like you say, disagree with them on even one point and you're branded as some sort of fascist/fascist apologist. Oh well, at least I got to dust off my quintessential Nietzsche retort. Did you catch it? Oh, hi, Candace. And I meant it, by the way, you ARE reasonable.

Voltron said...

LOL, yeah I caught that.

My favorite Nietzsche quote is:

"Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster and if you gaze into the abyss the abyss gazes into you."

Sadly I think I've been gazing into the abyss for WAY too long.

Voltron said...

Just so we're clear, I AM a Conservative...LOL

(but I do try to be reasonable)

Voltron said...

One more thing, I probably should've warned you before, but talking to me was the kiss of death for any hope of them accepting you...LOL

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

I admire George Will. And I loved how Buckley quite often thought OUT of the box (legalizing drugs, turning on the war, etc.) I've heard that quote, BTW, a slightly different translation. Also one of my favorites.

Will "take no prisoners" Hart said...

Actually, I did it to myself with the comments I left on their blog. That was MY kiss of death.
