Someone Doesn’t Like Me

From a reader [I cleaned up the f***ing classy language and withheld his name]

Jonah:

“Several of us concluded afterwards that this may have been the first time

the guy had ever heard someone say anything bad about multiculturalism in

his life and he was almost panicked about it.”

“concluded?” Or did you mean to say: “thought up something pissy and quasi

clever to make fun of some kid who didn’t agree with us.” ??

Allow me to share something with you: If I am ever unfortunate enough to

engage you in conversation, and I end up rolling my eyes at you, it won’t be

because you’ve “blown my mind” with your brilliant and invigorating new

perspective. You can feel free to ASK me why I’ll be reacting the way I am,

and I’ll be MORE than happy to explain it to you, you fatuous blowhard.

It’s a small thing, but a telling one I think; the fact that wingnuts such

as yourself are able to babble freely about Liberal “elites” and their

“arrogance” and “snobbery,” and then, without even missing a BEAT, can turn

around and unselfconsciously write snide little catty diatribes about

quaint, precious, twee lil’ liberal college students and the hilarity of

their ignorance. “Wussiness?” The tone of some of your s***t is right up

there with a middle school girl’s diary.

And hey, JG, I don’t care how many Homer Simpson references, semi-witty

asides, or pseudo-hip cultural nods you dress up your extreme right wing

polemics in – they’re still radical, hateful, disingenuous, exclusionary

and, more importantly, profoundly wrong.

Keep up the f****d-up thinking though! Just giving aid and succor to my boy

John Kerry. As more and more people get a whiff of what it is you and yours

are selling, the more they’re realizing that what looks like duck s**t and

quacks like duck s**t…

All the best,

p.s. Do I think that the snide, arrogant tone of MY own email somehow

discredits my argument? Perhaps. 🙂 Although I AM better looking than

you, so I do have a little more leeway when it comes to acting like a

hypocritical prick.
