#TwitterGulag: The Hypocrisy of the Persecuted Wingnut

Breitbart.com’s Lee Stranahan and Mandy Nagy urge wingnuts to use ‘block and report’

The right wing persecution fantasy known as #TwitterGulag is still raging today, as the conspiracy theories and suspected masterminds keep multiplying and getting more ridiculous. They’ve now started adding a slash to any suspected mastermind’s Twitter username, to avoid what they think is the DREADED REPLY TRAP that keeps getting their accounts suspended.

For example:

But today, we also find breitbart.com’s Mandy Nagy and Lee Stranahan urging conservatives to do exactly what they’ve been whining and crying about for months: use Twitter’s “block and report as spam” feature to silence people who disagree with them.

These are the same people who’ve been trying to cast me as the super-villain in a plot to oppress conservatives, because I advised — and will continue to advise — my friends and followers to block and report the psycho stalkers from the website exposed in this post. Smell that? It’s the ripe stench of hypocrisy.

But Lee Stranahan perfectly described what these obsessive nuts have been doing on Twitter for months, harassing me, my followers, and everyone with whom I communicate, with “unwanted, bizarre tweets,” and I’d like to thank him for supporting my effort to fight against this kind of stalking behavior with the tools Twitter created for that purpose.

This wingnut double standard has been noted by others as well:

Methinks twitter isn't going to appreciate the wingnuts abusing the block and report feature.
Which will likely lead to more suspensions of wingnuts.
Which means Mandy and Lee are agents of the gulag!
Or something.

So it begins. #TwitterGulag has resulted in the opening of #TwitMo and the Summer of Darkness.

OT, but I went over to the Dumbest Man on the Internet's site, and he had a post about Rodney King's death. You would think that with King's passing, Dim's robots could keep themselves under control, right?

old glazier commented:

King’s relatives promise to cast his vote for him in November.

Classy, I tell ya!

Across all of time...same shit, different era.

It's an authoritarian defense mechanism: claim to be attacked, and therefore all of their (disproportionate) aggression is self defense.

Thankfully this time it's just social media bullying.

I’m stuck in a gulag..oh 60 hours now
The Man did caught me.. He did toss me
I spammed some people that I did cross
My presence on Twitter somehow was lost
Ole Man River..
I’m singing the blues
Who do I spam now? I’m waiting in my 8x10 to get out..
Got me singing the blues
It’s so unfair now..Who doesn’t like my abuse
When I’m being so obtuse?
Ole Man River what do I do?
Ole Man River I’ve been such a fool.
Ole Man River..What do I do?
I’m break’n the Prison gates..oh in about 12 hours or so

I HAVE seen the sodomites on parade and, prior to their being banned from Fifth Avenue, I saw the obscene, disgusting, vulgar, hateful, contempuous displays they carried on in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Romney: President Has the Power to Act Unilaterally Against Iran

And I believe it's important for us to communicate that. I can assure you if I’m president, the Iranians will have no question but that I will be willing to take military action if necessary to prevent them from becoming a nuclear threat to the world. I don't believe at this stage, therefore, if I'm president that we need to have a war powers approval or special authorization for military force. The President has that capacity now. I understand that some in the Senate for instance have written letters to the President indicating you should know that a containment strategy is unacceptable.

Hilarious! Unintentionally, of course. Fave bit:

Some people LIVE for a Big Story. For better or worse, people like Mandy and I are part of that clique of the crazy that skips the easy, safe stories. Andrew Breitbart was our leader and friend and kindred spirit there, literally working on the Big Story of Kimberlin and his minions until Andrew’s big brave loving heart burst in his chest. Andrew went out like a warrior and the fight didn’t end with his passing.

But YOU can make the fight worthwhile.

And:

Mandy’s been attacked for being raped. Literally.

He's pretty fond of the word 'literally', but doesn't seem to know how to use it.

The wingnut mind is invested in painting situations in glorious terms, especially ones involving the glorification of war (and co-opting the perceived 'glory' of war). They're extremely invested in presenting their little slapfights as a war, because (their thinking goes) if it's 'war' then anything they can do to the enemy is justified.

Juan Williams was "good" in her mind, until he actually started being a liberal again, whereupon he promptly became an "elitist". It's not that she does not know what the word means, it is that she does not care. For Michelle Malkin, 'elitist' is a buzz word she throws around to stir up the hatred in her audience.

I'm sick and tired of all these people calling themselves journalists. I'm a freaking brain surgeon. Heck, I wouldn't even call Juan Williams a journalist in the strictest sense of the word. All of this is opinion or commentary. A true journalist would give no opinion or commentary and only report that facts as she or he sees before them.

"Right Media/Wrong Media"

I happen to have Natan Sharansky's The Case for Democracy here. From the preface:

For many years, I have been asking myself why so many of those who have always lived in liberty do not appreciate the enormous power of freedom. With time, I have come to understand that my exposure to the black-and-white world of the Soviet Union provided me with a unique laboratory to discover the line between good and evil. In the free world, with its varying shades of gray, isolating the black and white, finding moral clarity, becomes far more difficult.

Malkin believes she's in the equivalent of the Soviet Union and has attained the moral clarity Sharansky has. She couldn't be more wrong.

This is what she compared the right-wing blogging scene to: Samizdat

Samizdat (Russian: самизда́т; IPA: [səmɨzˈdat]) was a key form of dissident activity across the Soviet bloc in which individuals reproduced censored publications by hand and passed the documents from reader to reader. This grassroots practice to evade officially imposed censorship was fraught with danger as harsh punishments were meted out to people caught possessing or copying censored materials.

And it goes on from there.

Then it just makes your joke completely out of touch.

Michelle Malkin and the other RWNJs have an illusory victimhood. Nobody is doing anything to them. Meanwhile, Walter, and the GOP in general, is really attempting to destroy unions-- unions which are part of why the US became a great country with a strong middle class. They are succeeding, as well, which is part of the reason our middle class is vanishing.

So, when you compare Malkin to the unions for the purposes of a lame joke, you are indeed being dishonest. The unions really are under attack, and really are losing that fight. Malkin is not under attack, and is doing fine for herself.

Moreover, this is something others have said before: right-wing humor often is making fun of those who are the victims, who are beaten down. Your 'joke' at the expense of unions, in the wake of what Walker is doing to them, is of that type. It's kicking people when they're down. It's unseemly. You may not personally like unions, but you'd have to be a complete idiot-- which you're not-- not to realize the many positive goods that unions achieved in this country.

Yeah. Tall ones. Funny you know. I can still read any one of the Big Government Idiot websites anytime I please. Fox News is literally a 24 hour GOP "news" channel. They got together at CPAC, Awakening 2012, and now RO12 with no problem. I even listened, painfully, to some of the speakers. Erick Erickson and Dana Loesch constantly get to speak on CNN which is a mainstream news channel (allegedly). They basically run Twitter from time to time due to their inherent obedient pathology. They rule AM talk radio. Right wing personalities (talk shows) have the highest ratings on both radio and television. Religion and Christianity remain strong and is followed not only by "right wingers" but people on the left....

The reason Republicans no longer attack private sector unions with the viciousness they once did is because there's no need; Taft-Hartley had the desired effect of weakening unions and reducing their influence. Of course, that change was not overnight- it took several decades to fully take effect. But now that it has, public sector unions are the next target, and the reason so many private sector workers support these rollbacks is because they resent the fact that public unions are stronger than private unions, and thus public workers have more bargaining power.

Once again, the right employs a divide and conquer strategy.

Schadenfreude should be occasionally amusing. Indeed, one of the most basic bits in comedy is when someone who's too proud, too vain, or taking themselves too seriously, gets a comeuppance. But there's a profound difference between the humor of a momentary discomfiture...versus the humor of yet another boot to the face. When someone set high is taken down a notch by humor, it humanizes them. When someone already cast down is mocked, it's often adding to their dehumanization.

If your entire sense of humor is "somebody else is uncomfortable" then it's a signpost that maybe you're a dick. And when the "joke" is its funny because group of people X should suffer you're crossing into wingnut humor.

Forty years after Watergate, many legal reforms rolled back

On June 17, 1972, a bungled break-in at Democratic National Committee headquarters exposed one of the most notorious abuses of presidential power and led to a wave of reforms of U.S. laws and institutions.

Now, on the 40th anniversary of the Watergate scandal, many of those changes have been rolled back or eliminated. Court rulings scrapped limits on campaign contributions. Congress has returned the function of special prosecutors to the Justice Department. Executive orders issued by PresidentGeorge W. Bush in the aftermath of Sept. 11 claimed power for the Oval Office to ignore U.S. laws and international treaties.

We (Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada) are currently under both a wind advisory (Gusts up to 45 mph) and a red flag warning. Lets hope some idiot doesn't throw a still lit cigarette butt out of the car as this area is currently a tinderbox.

By the way, if you take a look at the timeline of @bcmissildine, who's being hailed as a hero recently escaped from the forced labor camp of being unable to post to Twitter, you'll discover that right before his suspension he was ... wait for it ... spamming like a firehose at @davidaxelrod.

Over at the Droolies... one of the lead stories is "AMERICA'S MARXIST PICNIC", and in the top of page slide show of lead stories the image they use for this hot story is.... of Obama at a BBQ standing next to that reddest of all well known marxists - Chef Bobby Flay!

The story itself is just an incoherent rambling of all the old talking points from the last 4 years.

I would not be surprised if the wingnuts start to protest the Food Network. This week on Restaurant: Impossible the task was to work over a community center in DC, at the urging of First Lady Obama, who appeared on the show.

Now, Bobby Flay hosts a MARXIST PICNIC!! with the President.

Clearly the Food Network is part of Soros' plan to impose communism on us all.

The Uk versions are a bit different. Less sensationalized although the UK reality shows are trending more towards the American model. He's actually just a food dork.

Sweet potatoes are the devil's gourd. Proximity to Idaho should teach you these things.

I still prefer the Aussie version of these food shows. The Australian MasterChef is a much more composed, even at times, dare I say, uplifting program.

It's a huge hit over there but I haven't watched their version yet. It's on my list.

Survey supporting same-sex marriage branded 'flawed' by Catholic Church

Why is it flawed? Why, because people are prone to want to support individual rights, but we in the church leadership know that this is a flawed desire.

Desires are wrong. Individuality is wrong. Humans are evil. We know that.
