WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
My last blog post was about bullies in the gun lobby and how their followers have taken up the same tactics. Sadly, this is something I see almost every day in the comments that come through. It's a sad side-effect that people who promote non-violence, like myself, have to deal with on a regular basis. It's not really surprising, I guess. You can't expect people to be peaceful and civil if they spend so much of their mental energy and time preparing to kill people (self-defense included).
Many of you on the pro-gun side who visit here say you value debate on issues, and yet so many of you post foul and threatening messages, especially as "anonymous". It's cowardly. Folks on the pro-control side don't post such horrible comments. Consider this small sampling, all posted as "anonymous" at New Trajectory. The top one came in this morning:
"No possession of mine is worth the value of a human life, including scum-sucking dope-head career criminals."
Glad to hear that. There are many local people who already know who you are and where you live.
You wouldn't mind if they showed up and took all your shit, right?
Do you have any cute daughters?
Should'nt be too hard tracking you down. I have some topics to discuss with you.
See you soon.
Do your children know what a faggot you are? Do they know you drink man-juice?
Do your kids know you butt-fuck corpses?
Take it all in stride fag-bot. CFO is not a legitimate threat. CFO is just you in your mom's basement jacking off into her underwear.
You sick little fuck is simply a source of entertainment for us, and deep down, you know it.
But if walking around town inside a cardboard box makes you feel better about yourself, knock yourself out fag-boy.
Good thing you live in Oregon Baldi or we would have to beat you into submission, so you could be taught that our rights are not to be infringed.
Hey Baldr, should I refer to you as a fat fucking dick-head or a fat fucking douche-bag cunt???
I had allowed anonymous comments for those who did not have profiles that fit the options. But, clearly, those who would abuse that option have overwhelmed those who would not. So, from this point forward, no anonymous comments will be allowed. If you can't man-up enough to put your ID on a comment, then it isn't worth posting anyway.
