The Geography of Hate


goh

The pointlessness of mapping hate speech on Twitter.

Tweet Of The Year: “Well, I Hope You’ll Die Soon, Stupid Hater, And Bring All Your Stupid Followers With You In Hell”


Normally, I don’t bother to comment on angry tweets aimed in my direction. In fact, I generally block annoying people on Twitter. I don’t mind the fighting, but if I’m going to do it, I want to do it on my web page where it can draw an audience.
So, earlier today, I popped off a [...]

A flotilla of weapons-grade defeatism


Notice how quickly the meme formed?
I expected our outright enemies (and our wobbly allies) to grasp hold of the “Gaza flotilla” story like a life preserver, and they didn’t disappoint. The only thing missing was Dennis the Peasant chirping, “Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help! I’m being repressed!”

Alas, we also [...]

Good Riddance to the Jew-haters and Terrorists on the Flotilla to Gaza, Shame on Their Domestic Apologists and Supporters at Salon


Desmond Tutu has condemned the Israelis for defending their waters and their soldiers and for dealing with armed jihadists as armed jihadists should be dealt with. This particular unsavory crew launched their attack with chants celebrating Mohammed’s murder of Jews in the 7th century, which should be a crucial reminder to everyone in denial that [...]

Angie the Abortion Exhibitionist


When blogger Penelope Trunk tweeted her miscarriage last year, a writer at Double X urged women to take the idea even further in a piece called Go Ahead, Tweet Your Abortion.  And now someone has done just that.
Shortly after Angie Jackson discovered she was pregnant, she announced her plans to broadcast the grisly details of [...]

The Fate of Roger Ebert’s Legacy


“I’m so relieved to be an elite” –tweet from Roger Ebert
Most public figures have done or said something they wish they could take back. When it comes to public intellectuals and film critics specifically, they generally pride themselves on their ability to analyze what they see. Therefore, their responses to culture should be very measured [...]

Sean Hannity Attacked for Calling Sarah Palin “Governor”


It’s sometimes tempting to think that, with all the petty and stupid attacks against conservatives out there, we have to have seen it all.  But if there’s one lesson you should take to heart about the Left, it’s this: Never say never.  It can always get worse.
Today’s example is a recent post by True/Slant’s Austin [...]

Biggest V-8 Moment Tweet Today: Atrios Hits it Outta the Park


Social media doubles  as great entertainment some days.  Although I have to wonder what possesses anyone to be so inane.  Boredom?  Vitamin deficiency?  Ego issues?
Some of my do-gooder left wing pals spout utter nonsense too but they are clever enough not to post it on Twitter.
So it is with a distinct cleverness deficit that left [...]

Très Chic, Newsweek: Tired Jabs Make For Shoddy Poetry


You’re really going to love this gem from Jerry Adler at Newsweek.  I mean, it’s just so special.
I can see them now, tightly huddled, reading it with bated breath, tittering, grabbing each other in fits and peals of delirious laughter, “OMG, no wayyyyy.  That’s so…bad!”  Real inventive, too.  Great idea ramming MSNBC talking points and [...]
