As you all know pretty well, I spend some time last year duking it out with some of the pawns of the Race Grievance Industry. These people are the stooges who take to the airwaves, social media, publications, the blogs and the street, with all sorts of frothing imprecations and lunatic accusations of racism, all at the command of their leadership.
I went at it with them for some months last year and the previous year, before they tacitly admitted they were out of gas, and, indirectly at least, conceded defeat. How, you might ask? By banning me from their pages.
I was nearly unfailingly polite, but I was firm, logical, backed up what I said, and they had nothing to counter it except to cry racism and run away, tails between legs.
Well, since my banishment, I’ve continued to follow some of their blogs — here are two of them: Brotha Wolf and Abagond — because the topic of race relations has always been of great interest to me. There have been some interesting posts, generally by insightful respondents to typically mediocre or boilerplate posts by the owners of the blogs.
However that all changed today. What appears to be shaping up as an interesting exchange is happening there now! Brotha Wolf — aka Brotha Cryin’ Wolf — had a typically stupid post. It’s here.
In it, BW thinks he has caught Bill O’Reilly in a gotcha moment, when O’Reilly — à la Brian Williams — supposedly lied about his whereabouts during the Falklands War in order to make it seem as if he were in the thick of battle. The problem is that someone immediately came forward and corroborated O’Reilly’s story. Furthermore, there seems to be no hint of anything else like that in O’Reilly’s past, while Williams appears to have been a serial exaggerator.
Let’s face it, the left are all serial exaggerators. Aka: liars.
But, wait! The first response to Brotha Wolf’s dumb post was from a commentator calling himself “SnowMan.” He (presumably a “he”(1)) simply eviscerated Brotha Cryin’ Wolf’s premise. To his credit, the good Brotha didn’t immediately ban SnowMan, but rather tried to engage him. That was probably a mistake, as BW was plainly over-matched. Another of BW’s acolytes, the brainless Herneith joined in as well. She has one speed with people who disagree with her: racism! She was true to form, but SnowMan wiped her out in the very next post. It was a delicious little exchange. I’ve reproduced it below, [with Editor’s Notes in red and square brackets] because I wonder whether Brotha Wolf will leave the embarrassing exchange up for long.
Typically Brotha Wolf bans people who get too uppity in their disagreement with him, and SnowMan is nothing if not uppity! However, if he’s allowed to stay around for a while, the fireworks ought to be fun to watch! I’m thinking I’d like to recruit SnowMan to contribute to our blog, but I suspect he has his own.
Again, here’s the link. Enjoy!
The blog thread is below:
This Bill O’Reilly scandal, and that’s what it is naysayers, has gotten worse and worse for the conservative commentator. In fact, you know it’s gotten bad when even your fellow conservatives call you out on your lies. After Brian Williams got caught in a fib, O’Reilly saw fit to scold him. And then, you know what happened after that. It was all downhill for the man who loved pointing fingers at the world, but too full of himself, along with something else, to admit his own flaws, one of them being that he’s apparently a pathological liar.
Now, it seems that conservatives, for the most part, are trying to distance themselves from the mess that is Bill O’Reilly, especially when he’s going around threatening those who had the balls to call him out. MSN reports:
The editors in chief at Mother Jones this morning sent this email/letter to Fox News Channel’s primetime star Bill O’Reilly and one of the network’s communications execs, saying it is concerned for its Washington bureau chief’s safety after O’Reilly called for him to be “in the kill zone.”
“Mother Jones writer David Corn yesterday responded to Bill O’Reilly’s comments on the magazine’s piece about O’Reilly’s claims regarding his work for CBS News covering the Falklands war, saying “A discerning reader of Deadline can easily see that Bill O’Reilly is hiding behind name-calling, rather than dealing with the substance of the matter,” and that Mother Jones sent O’Reilly a long list of detailed questions about his comments regarding his experience as a war reporter. ” He and Fox News declined to respond. Instead, O’Reilly hurls invective, seemingly to distract,” Corn told Deadline.
“It’s a total hit piece,” Bill O’Reilly told Deadline about the report Corn wrote in Mother Jones about O’Reilly’s claims in re his coverage of Falklands war. In the post, Corn said some of O’Reilly’s stories “don’t withstand scrutiny — even claiming he acted heroically in a war zone that he apparently never set foot in.”
O’Reilly blasted the piece to other news outlets as well, and is continuing to do so today — during which he has been quoted by at least one outlet, TV Newser, as saying he expected those reporters with whom he spoke to “verify what I’m saying, because it’s easily verifiable, then I expect David Corn to be in the kill zone.”
Wow! And the scariest part is that O’Reilly’s supporters and Fox News disciples will be angry enough not only to agree, but will find ways to carry it out. So yes, I too would be worried for David Corn.
The bottom line is that those who worship the insidiousness and caveman-like mentalities of modern-day conservatism who believe in personal responsibility need to practice what they preach and take accountability for one of their own who’s going off the deep end with lies and anger management problems and not blame everyone else for their fuck ups. Rather, O’Reilly needs to man up and own his mistakes. His reputation has always been shady, but now there is proof. It is not a liberal plot to undermine the “purity” of America and go after a proud American. This is what real journalism is about, going after corruption. And Bill O’Reilly, through the years has proven just how corrupt he is.
*** END OF BROTHA WOLF’S BLOG POST AND COMMENTS ***
We’ll see whether this fun exchange continues! Courage is not a characteristic of BW’s. I suspect he’ll bail soon enough pretending he’s just too smart, too insightful … too good for SnowMan, when, really, BW’s just … overmatched. I sure wish I could jump in and help out, even though it’s a bit like shooting fish in a barrel.
(1) – A colleague of mine, for example, a petite, brilliant black woman, engaged Brotha Wolf and was able to conceal both her sex and her color from the braying herds at Brotha Wolf’s site for most of the very long exchange before she, too, was banned. I can’t conclude definitively that “SnowMan” is a he, but for the nonce I’ll assume he’s a he.
