Irony is Lost the on Dumb - Yet Again

Lee Ward has a post titled: More Right Wing Hate Mongering

You got that right? Right Wing Hate Mongering. -- Write that down if you need to. -- Hate Mongering from the Right Wing.

Lee opines:

Early on Sunday morning is usually a pretty good time for Conservative Asshat hunting. After the average right wing blogger has spent a long Saturday night consisting of watching Fox News re-runs on their TIVO while stuffing 9 cans of beer and two jumbo bags of Nacho Cheese Doritos down their pie hole, these jackasses can usually relied upon to put together a big ol' incoherent, spittle-filled, bullshit-filled, hate-filled rant.

Irony.

Actually this probably concludes my Wizbang Blue posts. There comes a point where the stupidity is just too much. The point has been made. At best these people are fools. At worst delusional and demented. -- I've had my fun, they are only credible to other sociopaths. Time to move on.

Jay Tea, let me introduce you to something. It's called Google:

Here's how it works. You click on the link above. The Google home page appears. Type in the phrase that you're looking for and then click the button that reads "Google Search".

In this case you would type in the words "Clearly they shot the wrong Kennedy". If you do that, the first link that pops up will be this:

There, are you happy now? That should give you your Sunday morning fill of right-wing hate.

Larkin, I realize you're new to blogging, so let me clue ya in to an important part of it.

When you refer to a post on another blog, it is customary to link to said post. That saves your readers (oops, with Paul leaving Blue alone I guess that would be reader) the trouble of having to Google it to find out what the blazes you're so up in arms about.

It's called "identifying your source," which I guess the folks at Blue have never heard of. It's also called "good writing practice," which I guess you don't care about.

And that's why Blue isn't gonna make it.

Larkin, I coulda looked it ... (Below threshold)

Larkin, I coulda looked it up. But that was my point -- when an author makes an assertion, it's incumbent on them to provide their own documentation -- not on the reader to do the author's homework for them.

By the way, on N. Z. Bear's Ecosystem, the blog Lee cited as so emblematic is listed as #56,973 on the list of popular blogs. (For reference, Wizbang is #32, while Wizbang Blue scores at #10,186.)

Lee had to go over halfway to six figures to find his example. He couldn't find something outrageous in the top one hundred, one thousand, ten thousand, or even fifty thousand.

Also, I've said on several occasions that of all the Kennedys to have died tragic deaths (Joe, Jack, Bobby, Kathleen, John Jr., just to name a few), it is the most tragic that the one that survives to serve as patriarch is Ted. Not too dissimilar a sentiment than the author's, I admit.

I also will confess to the sin of chuckling when some unnamed wag (I think it was Howard Stern) commented about Mark David Chapman: if he'd aimed just a foot or so to the side, he'd be a hero.

So Lee has found one conservative who virtually no one has heard of to cite as his example. I find myself wondering if he set up the blog himself just so he'd have someone to quote.

Nah. That'd be too much like work for him.

You can prove the wiz blue authors factually and logically wrong many times a day for the next decade and it wouldn't change how they behave. To get someone to admit they were wrong requires that they have more intellectual honesty than pride. What you have accomplished with your series on wiz blue is proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the authors of wiz blue have more pride than intellectual honesty.

Kevin needs to rethink his strategy. A house divided against itself cannot long stand.

Here's what I wrote in the post - the portion Jay and Paul are just too dishonest to quote:

This idiot blooger, who shall remain nameless and linkless and left to wallow in their little hate-filled cesspool of obscurity, is no better than the copy-cat criminal who, upon seeing the publicity afforded one jackass, tries really, really hard to be just as stupid and outrageous.

Jay, you used to have some integrity, but you've allowed your Lee Derangement Syndrome to lower your standards enough that you let Paul the Putz drag you down to his level, to the point where your hate overrides your sense of integrity.

Lets start here Lee, I agree to a point, giving a link would add so-called Google Juice to that blog.

However, rather than a link you could have for example added something like this... example.blogspot.com.

It's not a link, will add nothing to a blogs "hitmeter" but still gives your readers the BEST chance to read the blog in question if they desire.

I believe you've seen the very same done by some of the authors here when referancing blogs like Atrios and others.

Actually, it's been brilliant for pointing out just how far out there the lefties are.

I don't think Kevin is that much of an ideologue. I believe he wanted to repeat the success of Wizbange, but it's apparent that hasn't been happening. Kevin tried sub-blogs for sports, pop, and politics and maybe he was talked into trying a full blown lefty blog, which you can see from the URL is completely independent as far as an internet visitor is concerned. I don't know the background, but now Kevin has the authors of wiz blue calling the authors of Wizbange (the money maker) liars and haters. Paul is smart to end his series and it would be good if Lee kept to the blue side, otherwise the blogging on issues is soon going to take a back seat to a civil war. All that will do is bring Wizbang's popularity down to that of wiz blue. Can Kevin afford to let that happen?

Stop there, Marc, that's as far as you need to go. I knew if anyone was interested they could google a quote from the screenshot and find it themselves, and I didn't feel it necessary to suggest they google it -- for the same reasons I didn't include the link.

"And BTW when will you stop being a thief"

In light of the copyright concerns raised here and elsewhere I've emailed Wizbang! and Wizbang Blue publisher Kevin Aylward for clarification of what we should and shouldn't be doing over at Wizbang Blue. In the meantime we will continue our current practice == a practice here is aware of -- and we will modify or stop that practice if and when he advises us to do so.

Paul the Putz really pissed on his own shoe with this copyright dustup, and it has a far-reaching impact - just click over to Wizbang Pop for a quick idea of the 'chilling effect' his claims of copyright violations at Wizbang Blue is going to have on Kevin's other sites as well.

Putzy Paul has to be the dumbest asshole I've ever met, but that's what makes all of this so much fun, I suppose.

In the meantime, Marc, I'd ask that you ixn-ay the ealing-stay alk-tay - if you get my drift. Ol' Putzy isn't smart enough to not piss on the Wizbang Living Room floor, but I suspect you see the dilemma and difficulties these claims of stealing can cause for Kevin.

Your affected concern for Kevin is bogus. As we say in the South, Lee , that dog won't hunt.

You are the one who has compromised this blog. You are the one who did so in total disregard of the law: read Marc's post's and the dates they were posted. You were forewarned. You ignored those warnings.

That's a shame, I used to think you were the best news on this blog. Now, clearly, you're just another liar.

I have to call bullshit on this one. Lee, I don't recall you EVER having anything complimentary to say about me or my postings. My memory might not be the best, but I seem to recall you being consistently critical and insulting as long as I can remember.

The only reason you'd have to say anything positive about me now would be so you could talk about how I've "fallen" in your eyes. How I used to be so much better before I succumbed to Paul's lead.

Horseshit.

Now you're just trying to take the high road, say how you hoped that I'd keep above the fray and maintain my normal standards of conduct, but instaed have descended into trolldom and how saddened you are by the whole thing.

Codswallop.

Finally, Lee, on the copyright issue: you do NOT need anyone's permission to go back and STOP violating the copyright law with your wholeseale THEFT of Time's article. Once it was called to your attention (which you posted Friday morning, notified of less than an hour later, and acknowledged barely two hours after that), you had a legal and moral obligation to remove enough of the original article to satisfy copyright law.

60 hours have passed since the original offense, Lee, and you STILL haven't fixed your mistake. You've had plenty of time to post other material and comment everywhere, but you haven't had the time to STOP BREAKING THE LAW. At this point, the only conclusion I can reach is that you WANT Kevin to get sued.

Oh, and I did read your excuse to not post the link; I just didn't believe you. While you said "who shall remain nameless and linkless and left to wallow in their little hate-filled cesspool of obscurity," I read that as "who shall remain nameless and linkless so no one can readily see how far I had to dig to find some obscure blogger no one ever reads and no one ever heard of to make my bogus point."

I think it's time I got Kevin directly involved in this one. Your little stunt is not just endangering yourself, but the entire Wizbang family, and SOMEONE has to be a grownup and keep you from putting the entire site family at risk.

Asshole.

First of all asshat Paul didn't start the "dustup," I did, a short one hour after you violated Time Magazines copyright.

A violation that STILL hasn't been corrected 60 plus hours later.

but I suspect you see the dilemma and difficulties these claims of stealing can cause for Kevin.

First of all I didn't make "a claim" I stated and will continue to state fact YOU stole copyrighted material from the Time Mag website.

And your sorry diversionary trick of pointing to some other alleged violation at Pop is just that, a diversion and way to deflect attention from yourself.

More to the point, it doesn't mitigate your guilt in any way.

As long as no damage was being done to Wizbang's integrity, popularity, and law-abiding status, the experiment could continue.

I would disagree with that. I often read blogs of both Liberal (should I say "Progressive to stay PC?) and Independent persuasion. It's no different than my choice to view Fox in addition to the major networks both in and out of the U.S.

And honest opinion must be formed looking at all sides of an issue and a variety of sources is the ONLY way to do that.

However, in the case of Blue a more discerning look should have been taken when deciding who to "turn Blue."

Lee, obviously, given his long history on this side of the house via his many comments "pre-Blue" should have never been given the invitation.

And given the current incident should be banned from not only Blue but Wizbang as well.

If nothing else it would provide great fodder for the remaining Blue Crowd to all scream in unison "CENSORSHIP!!!!

It would be a circus I tell ya.

My first instinct was to agree with you. But I don't think we're giving them enough (dis)credit. I am genuinely to the point where I think they are mentally unstable. Who in their right mind would post that federal law says they can only clip the part that makes someone look bad... get real.

It begs a bazillion questions...

1) Does he believe it in his head? If yes, he needs a rubber room.

2) Did he expect me to accept his explanation? If so I'm insulted AND he needs a rubber room.

3) Did he expect anyone who isn't in need of said rubber room to buy it?

Mac you and I agree more than we disagree... But I would never in my wildest imagination tell you that a rock was a liquid or a gas and expect you to believe me. It's just crazy.

As an example of Lee's ranting abilities, I posted on the "Wizbang Blue" blog a comment (in the "SiCKO" thread) regarding how Lee would be all alone if he had no blog here to generate traffic (such that it is), since Kevin and the gang were so gracious to create a "blue" site on Wizbang for Lee & Co. to post on, to begin with - and that if I were Kevin, I would have lost patience with Lee and fellow "blue" posters a long time ago.

Well, Lee's thoughtful, measured response to me was this missive (emphasis mine):

It's isn't my blog, it's Kevin's blog, and he invited me and several other -smart-as-a-whip conservative crushers to write on it... and I earned this spot by putting up with immature dickheads like you Wanderlust.

I don't disagree with you in general, but I don't think many people view wiz blue as a "source". The popularity numbers Jay posted shows few people who read Wizbang go over to the blue side. As for wiz blue gaining it's own liberal readership, I doubt many folks of that persuasion will overlook the fact that it's associated with Wizbang. None of that would matter if the existence of wiz blue didn't threaten to damage Wizbang. Now with accusations of law breaking and the authors trading insults it seems time for Kevin to do another cost vs. benefits analysis.

Might as well go ahead and drive the last few nails in the coffin and let other trolls post at blue as well. Along with Lee, these people consistently present their feelings as fact and proffer hate-filled rhetoric as dialog.

To pick an obscure blog, categorize it as the "far-right fringes of the blogosphere" and then conclude with branding an entire group with this:

"How... Republican."

is just ridiculous.

Especially when undeniably widely read left-wing blogs such as Kos and DU commit these outrageous assaults on our psyche not just daily, but hourly. I'm reminded of glass houses and such when these glaring examples are completely ignored while the author himself engages in the very same vitriol, broad brush painting and intellectual dishonesty.

Furthermore, I was dismayed to find from Paul that Lee regularly emails him in friendly tones then proceeds to treat him with such contempt in public. I mean, c'mon ... just how two-faced can someone get?

I had hopes that through offering those who comment on Wizbang regularly in opposition to the posts they would use their new forum with respect and dignity to offset the spittle-laden vulgarities they offer here. Instead we get a blog where the common usage of foul language, half truth and name-calling is the very foundation of the postings.

To be fair, all Bluers aren't this way and leave open an avenue for rational argument. But sadly I'm extremely disappointed as a whole in the presentation of ideas there. Paul Hamilton is corrected in the comment section for a poorly researched post and never makes a change in the original post to reflect the truth of the matter and Lee is so busy here demanding accountability, he completely over-looks it. Then he himself goes on to commit the very sins he acuses others of. I could go on and on about Lee's continuing dishonesty and hatefulness, but I think most here are well aware of it.

I am unsure how this wasn't known from the get go, I sure as hell did.

You know what I don't like? They are nicer to me over there than here. What hypocrites.

Actually, I'd like to come out in support of the whole bunch, even Lee, the Cow, Ward. They are all bright. This is a group of leftists at least willing to engage substantively if not thoroughly honestly all of the time, but who is? I think it is useful, nay, even persuasive. Let's just not be too revelatory about who is being persuaded about what.

And they do link to leftist stuff that I truly could not possibly find on my own.

That's because lee is Eddie Haskel. From the moment he was given wizblue his entire demeanor changed, it was sickening, two-faced to say the least. Though now it seems he is becoming more and more unhinged.

The BlueBoys have deleted my comment on the SiCKO thread as well; but, oddly enough, Lee's response to my [deleted] comment remains.

Looks like they are doing their mentor (Stalin) proud...

Mac Lorry:

Maybe that's why there are so few comments on wiz blue, the author's just delete them. I noticed that the Sicko thread has only 4 comments and 3 are by Lee. Somehow though Lee sees himself as a "conservative crusher." I wonder how the medical community in Cuba treats such advanced cases of self delusion?

And the only person Lee has... (Below threshold)
SCSIwuzzy:

And the only person Lee hasn't deleted is Paul. LOL.
Guess he's afraid if he bans a fellow author, he'll lose his "contract"...
