Perrin Responds to ‘Death Threat’ Challenge: ‘Uh, I Forgot’
Dennis Perrin, who posted an irresponsible, libelous accusation at Huffington Post that an LGF reader threatened to “track down his IP address and kill him,” has posted a typically insult-laden response to my challenge to prove his allegation: Dennis Perrin: Life Is A Beautiful, Precious Flower.
Long story short: he can’t prove it. He “doesn’t remember” his username, or in which thread the “threat” supposedly appeared. In other words, he made it all up.
Dennis Perrin is a liar.
How incredibly lame, Dennis. Now you should do the responsible thing and retract your article at Huffington Post. (I know you won’t.)
It’s been brought to my attention that Charles Johnson, the Mud King of the Widdle Gween Nerfball tribe, is upset with my contention that I received a death threat at his fine site many years ago. “Man up,” ChazJo growled, beating his chest as his followers grunted their approval. “Prove it, or retract it.”
I’ve also received several emails from what I suspect are Nerfballers, daring me to do the same thing. So, in the interest of full clarity, and because I want to get back to some actual work, here’s the deal.
There was never a death threat made against “Dennis Perrin.” This is because “Dennis Perrin” didn’t use his real name when commenting at ChazJo’s joint. “Dennis Perrin” used a single, anonymous tag — a rare practice online, I’ll concede, but what the hell, you only live once. What that tag was I have no idea, since I posted there maybe five years ago, two computers and three hard drives in the past.
I knew very little about that site’s politics at the time, as I was relatively new to the Web, so I thought I could argue from a different perspective in good faith. Umm, right. My biggest mistake was insisting that the Palestinians are human, which is science fiction to Chazzy’s tribe. Several commenters told me to leave, and one said that if I didn’t, he’d track my IP address and “hunt” me down, encouraged by a few others. Now, whether this was possible or not, I don’t know, but as I said in my earlier post, I figured, f*ck it, and moved on.
Perrin’s accusation is even more ludicrous, because it’s impossible for an LGF commenter to find out another commenter’s IP address.
The whole thing is nothing but a sleazy leftist smear.
