I woke up early this morning with a guilty conscience, having left two nasty comments at 4&20, one for Stevens, one for j-girl. I am not apologizing, however, bad as I feel, because I thought at the time that these two sealed themselves off, insular in their hubris of moral superiority* so that I knew in my heart that it was the only shot I was ever going to get at them. I made them good ones. Drew blood.
But I do owe an apology … to Skink and JC. I do not think that Stevens’ heavy-handed attack was not so much about them so much … as me. JC had opened the floor, allowing me to comment there again. J-girl had to be seething. Both of them had banned me in the past, both are controlling and intolerant of divergent views, and both demand genuflection at the door.
And what did they get? Talbot was getting his bow tie in knots. Pogie is afraid to go there. I argued that Bernie Sanders is a shill for Hillary. [I made a disparaging remark about Monica Lindeen, doubting her integrity. The hills have eyes.] When Talbot brought me misinformation on the Bay of Pigs, I set him straight, and the JFK murder was discussed. Monty was gnawing at my heels. In short, I can be a pain in the ass, especially when people want to talk the D-talk, their silly elections and pretensions of moral superiority.
And that’s pretty much, I guess, what makes me “toxic.” I do not adhere to the unspoken rule of Democrat blogs, to talk the D-talk. Skink and JC tolerated me, and that might have cost them their perch.
J-girl, I am told, “hates my guts.” I welcome that, of course, but if so, my presence there had to be grinding on her. She might be the origin of the Friday Night massacre, and Skink and JC might be allowed to post there if they agree that I should again be banned. I don’t know. We’ll see how it plays out. I hope you two boys give that consideration. Blogs all over the world survive without my comments.
This might come off as a tad arrogant, but I know the power of my words, and my ability to afflict the comfortable. I know the passion I invoke in people, and how, usually, they just want to hide from me. So I am guessing, but not certain, that the two remaining pwoggies on the Montana blogs might have an avenue back in if they agree to the ban on me, as I was before. I voluntarily offer them that as a key to possibly unlock that door.
I have a better understanding of Democrats than most, and so accept this if is this to be the end product of the Friday Massacre. It is better to have at least a small voice for progressive politics on the blogs, and 4&20 seems a logical platform as it is already established. Building a following for a new blog is daunting.
*Having elected a black sheriff, you see … maybe now a woman, both Neocons, but a source of moral superiority!!!
