Ever since my blog post on the Colorado re-call elections, in which I also asked “..and is Wendy Davis too stupid to be Governor,” the local Leftist bloggers and media have been in a faux-outrage insisting that I was obviously a misogynist for calling Davis “stupid.”
Actually, my blog-post wouldn’t have garnered any attention from these useful idiots (who I doubt read my blog anyway), except that when I tweeted a link to my blog post (to promote it), Dave Carney from the Greg Abbott campaign retweeted my tweet (without comment). That’s when the children over at Burnt Orange Report went into full faux-outrage mode, and demanded that Abbott distance himself from my “misogynistic” tweet.
Of course, being the not-too-bright Liberals that they are, they missed the context of that blog post entirely. Or, more likely, just ignored it. Honesty and integrity are not important to these folks.
The context, of course, was that I was writing about the two recalled Colorado Senators, who were recalled (and defeated) because of their support for anti-gun legislation that was passed in Colorado last year. Just a few days later, Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis decided to add stronger anti-second amendment issues to her platform. By bringing this up days after two Senators in a Blue state were recalled, I implied that Wendy had to be either incredibly politically tone-deaf or a complete moron to follow suite here in Texas.
There’s your context.
But the bed-wetters jumped straight to !!MISOGYNY!! — because, obviously the only way anybody could criticize Wendy Davis is if they hate women. Much like any criticism of King Barack automatically makes one a racist.
Well, since then, several local bloggers that nobody has ever heard of (other than their parents, maybe), have decided to dig into my 1o+ years of archives (to include my mostly- unmoderated comments) and try to dig up dirt to paint me as a !!RACIST!!, !!ISLAMPHOBE!!, and “MISOGYNIST!!.” And then they’ve used their out-of-context “discoveries” to try to force politicians with whom I’ve interviewed to distance themselves from my !!RACIST!!, !!ISLAMPHOBE!!, and “MISOGYNIST!!” hate-speech.
And, after having dinner with Lt. Governor David Dewhurst on Monday night, the local-libtards went after him, too. A member of Dewhurst’s team alerted me that some kid named Forrest Wilder from the Texas Observer (yeah, I’d never heard of ’em either) contacted their press office seeking comment on Dewhurst’s “relationship” with me for a story he was writing.
So that makes Attorney General Greg Abbott, Governor Rick Perry, and now Lt. Governor David Dewhurst (that I know of) that these leftists have contacted and asked to publicly renounce me. Despite the fact that I’m not a part of any of these campaigns, staffs, or have any relationship with any of these politicians outside of being a citizen journalist interested in their view points and policy positions.
Never mind that these same leftists easily excuse or ignore all of Obama’s problematic relationships with men like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers as irrelevant — somehow my “cozy” relationship with these politicians is a problem. Talk about drumming up a phony controversy.
Oh, did I mention that Mr. Wilder is an environmental reporter? Not sure what environmental angle he’s chasing here…other than a lot of hot gas (side note: man-made global warming is a myth and the biggest con of our generation, Forrest. You get that right? You can’t be so stupid as to believe in that debunked “science,” can you?)
Anyway, this tweet from Mr. Wilder got my attention:
White Supremacist? Really? Wow…talk about reckless (and untrue) and very-close-to-libelous reporting, Forrest. I am not now, nor have I ever been associated with any racial or White Supremacist group, nor do I subscribe to any of their beliefs. So, go ahead and print that headline, son, and I’ll make you prove it.
One of Wilder’s myopic followers ( Jeff Rotkoff) retweeted that and followed up with more:
The best that I can tell is that these pantie-wetting Disingenuous White Liberals are upset that I use the word “animal” when describing people who act…well, like animals.
They’re particular objection — and apparently what makes me a racist and a member of some White Supremacist group (that I didn’t even know I belonged to) — is that I have referred to black men, women, and groups of blacks as animals (when they were behaving as wild, dangerous pack animals). Of course, they seem to have missed all the times I’ve also ascribed this same comparison to Hispanics and whites. Because that doesn’t fit their narrative.
I write about black crime and the failures of modern black culture often here at Urbangrounds, precisely because the MSM refuses to do so — at least not in an honest manner. Pointing out the failures of modern black culture apparently also makes me a racist. Never mind that it’s true.
Anyway, these tactics are pure Alinsky. And I probably shouldn’t even indulge or respond to ‘em — but I needed some blog fodder today, and this was low hanging fruit.
Update (October 15)
Another one of the latte-sipping femboys who writes for the Texas Observer, some Marxist wanna-be named Chrissy Hooks (@cd_hooks) tried to attend a NE Tarrant County Tea Party event last night, where Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst was speaking (side note: damn, but these kids are infatuated with Dewhurst. Like stalker-level infatuation).
Not surprisingly he nearly got his ass kicked in the process. Even less surprisingly, Chrissy didn’t man-up and attempt to defend himself, even though he alleges that one of these *men physically assaulted him:
As the night wore on, the group started replying to my tweets, and I could tell my presence was wearing thin. A tall, burly, bald man, younger than most in attendance, started hovering around me. He seemed agitated. He disappeared momentarily, then emerged from the church with a similarly proportioned friend.
“You’re done,” he said. “You’re done.” He grabbed me by the shoulders and pushed me toward the parking lot where my car was parked. When I protested, the heavy, bald man urged me to “take a swing,” then called me a “whiner.” I said that it generally wasn’t a good idea to muscle out members of the press, regardless of their affiliation, and his friend yelled: “Is that a threat? Are you threatening us?”
“Nah, he’s not threatening us,” said the burly guy. “He’s just a whiner.” Then he snapped a picture of my license plate, and they watched as I drove away.
Isn’t that cute? This poor kid is under the delusion that he’s a member of “the press.” And not just some blogger with a Macbook Pro and a domain name.
Here’s hoping next time Chrissy does decide to man up and defend himself. The post from the hospital will be fucking hilarious, I bet. You’re the enemy, Chrissy. You really shouldn’t be surprised when you’re treated as such, you pathetic little bitch.
*For the record, I was not one of those “burly, bald” men who allegedly (without a single picture, witness, or even a call to the police after being physically assaulted and threatened?) accosted this loser.
