Dan Riehl’s Imaginary Black Kid Beatdown

Blogosphere • Views: 10,360

Right wing blogger Dan Riehl takes a ride on the DC Metro after the tea party protest, and lapses into a reverie about putting a serious beatdown on some black children: Riehl World View: A 9/12 Experience: Dangerous Times.

Riding out of DC on the Metro, 9/12, there were some folks from South Dakota and also another Mid-West state I can’t recall in the same Metro car. We were talking, nothing special, really - politics, of course.

In the back were maybe ten or so black kids taking up that section of the car. There was no confrontation, just one or two of them talking loudly enough to make sure they’d be heard.

Without resorting to the poor diction it was along the lines of, these are the people who think Obama is the anti-Christ. That McCain he wasn’t chit. Obama’s going to be president as long as he wants, so these people better get used to it, etc. It went on but not really to a level that was so loud, or so confrontational that it needed to be addressed.

We just ignored them without much trouble at all.

Yeah, they were technically thugs. But the reality was they were still wannabes really, pretty young, not that big, or many. And if the several adults there for 9/12 actually needed to do something about it, the kids wouldn’t have lasted very long. Maybe if they were bigger, or more numerous, it might have been worse. Or it may not have happened at all. Who knows?

Now there’s true courage. If those black kids had tried something, Dan Riehl was ready. Man, he would have shown them.

Of course, they didn’t try anything. But the potential for serious violence was in the air! He could tell by their “poor diction.”

Oh no. That’s not racist at all.

Meanwhile, because I posted a comment about this ridiculous Riehl revenge fantasy in the middle of a long thread about something else entirely, he came up with another classic bit of paranoia:

For the first time in over 5 years I had to close a comment thread as the comments were so ugly. They’re deleted now. The post was linked by several lib blogs, so I assumed it was them.

Probably libs, but of the neo-charles johnson variety. Someone just emailed me the link where charles linked it. It’s funny, as they were mostly mimicking his comments now that I’ve read them. Seems his remaining lizards are now bees, just a hive of little drones. Or, maybe they were all him. He certainly doesn’t throw traffic anything like he once did. I saw that coming in but never put it together.

What a sad commentary. lgf, ugliest blog on the Internets. As I told the emailer, “Whatever it is, he’s now riding in circles in a very, very ugly place, somewhere within a state of misery. Not much to do but pity him and otherwise ignore him, I guess”.

Yes, Dan! I mobilized my vast army of flying monkeys to send you hate mail — and cleverly hid my intentions by not posting the instructions!

Or maybe … it was all me!

Because, you know, I have nothing better to do with my time than to compose dozens of authentic-sounding hate mails to the brave, black-kid-beating Dan Riehl, and thousands of comments that look as if they were written by real people. All for you, Dan. That’s just how evil I am.

Ever try to have a conversation with someone on drugs? It just doesn't work... -- Sometime during the summer of 1987, when asked by a DC reporter, "what are your feelings on the war on drugs?" His first response was to criticize the inherent invasion of privacy, followed by the above statement against drug use.
