Help, help! He's being repressed!!


Now you just don't remember
All the things you said
And you're not sure that you wanna know
I'll give you one hint, honey
You sure did put on a show


So many victims, so few candles

So, in my travels, I came across this tidbit from Goldstein, at Sadly, No:
I’m thinking I’ll maybe pull out of the Online Integrity thing. Integrity doesn’t mean we should be compelled to respect the privacy of those who rely on our restraint to launch the basest personal attacks.
Firstly, that second sentence was an abomination before the Lord (or a goatfuck, depending on which school of Lit Crit you adhere to). Christ, Goldstein, did you take any English classes at Our Lady of the Eternal Victim that your parents paid so dearly for? (Yes, I know - that's what makes it ironical and stuff...)

Secondly (or nextly), when in the name of Sweet Baby James did you Ever truly subscribe to the tenets of OI? You've knighted yourself Sir Doppleganger of Online Integrity from Day One - I know it, you know it, and the entire blogosphere knows it.

Thirdly (and mostly lastly), I flat out disagree with your statement. Maybe your ego is too tender to suffer the slings, arrows and all that rot of base personal attacks, but mine isn't. You can call me whatever you want, say anything about my family, use the foulest of language, drag your internet-enlarged cock across my face... knock yourself (selves?) out... I won't intimidate your offline Life or threaten your privacy. That's just the kind of guy I am. I expect the same from the rest of the blogosphere, whether I'm dealing with right-wing idiots or left-wing idiots.

[I don't condone Frisch's comments. Then again, I don't quite buy the entire story. Call me cynical...]

But let's step back and try to get some perspective on our tearful victim, shall we? Yes, let's shall !
For those of you interested, I’ll be appearing on KIRO News Talk’s Dori Monson show at 3:05 MST (5:05 EST). [...]

We’ll be talking about Dr Frisch.
Oh, Satire, thy name is Jeff! What red, white and screwed American couldn't get a chuckle out of that? Not this one, I can tell ya! Hang on, I think I just peed myself.... oh, man... I did! Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha !!! No, go on without me - I can't stop laughing!!! Hooooo Mama!

Where was I? Oh, yes... Goldstein...
update: Evidently, I’m undergoing another DoS attack. So if the site gets wonky, that’s the reason.

Oh... my... fucking... God in Heaven with no beer! Are you fucking kidding me?!?

C'mon, Jeff, we all know you never suffered a Denial of Service attack, you lying crybaby. You're a fucking liar. That's it. You're a fucking liar - we know it, you know it, even your drooling hordes know it. So stop playing the victim in hopes that you'll get a link and catch some sweet wingnut stroking and maybe some ad revenue.

You're not a victim. You're just fucking pathetic.
...............................................................................

I had deleted this post because I messed it up, trying to re-format and edit, this morning. Frankly, I'm not very pleased with it; the tone and content are not what I was aiming for. I should also note that I can't claim certainty that Goldstein is a liar or that he didn't suffer a DOS attack.

That said, he's still fucking pathetic.

The thing that started me on this post was the line about pulling out of Online Integrity. I'd never paid attention to Goldstein before things started heating up between him and Thers. (They were NOT FLIRTING!!) But it seems that as soon as I did start watching what he wrote, Goldstein was going out of his way to violate the basic precepts of online integrity and Online Integrity on a daily basis. That, in itself, should be reason enough to dislike the creep - but I get the feeling he's actually proud of what he does, which seems to be a rather common posture of bloggers on the Right side of the aisle. I can't help but wonder if these clowns are still pulling the wings off flies.



So, for people like Goldstein, it's no big deal to post someone's personal information and mock their reaction to disturbing comments about their children. Good clean fun. Fraternity pranks. Boys will be boys, eh, Jeff? Of course, these are the people who take not-so-secret delight in the idea of torturing detainees in the unholy 'War on Terror', so it's not surprising to see the devolution to fucking with fellow Americans, simply because they're 'liberals'. And while I'm sure you have an impressive dick, Jeff, your comments about slapping people in the face with it shows a level of immaturity that makes me wonder if you have a 15 year old nephew who's borrowing your computer from time to time.
When you wake up in the morning
With your head on fire
And your eyes too bloody to see
Go on and cry in your coffee
But don't come bitchin' to me
But the part that's really amazing, to me anyway, is how shamelessly Goldstein and the other nitwit right-wingers run crying to Mommy at the slightest hint that someone's not buying their bullshit. And even more bewildering, instead of acting like the manly men (and women) they'd have us believe they are, they're suddenly swooning like some dainty maiden in an Anthony Trollope novel. Jesus - man up, people! Frisch's comments were way out of line - I'll join the chorus and condemn her comments. Do I feel for Jeff? Not a fucking bit. Know why? Because Jeff thinks he's special and shouldn't be held to the same standards as the rest of us.

You want to call liberal bloggers and the New York Times 'traitors', knock yourselves out. But stop whining when someone calls you on your bullshit or dares to tell you to Fuck Off! It's bad enough reading your John Wayne-a-be, exaggerated sense of self-worth and entitlement spilling onto the nets each day, but watching you and Malkin indulge in inter-linking orgasms of self-righteous indignation whenever someone offends your delicate sensibilities is, frankly, enough to make me retch. I'll admit, though, your toadies are well trained. (See? I said something nice about you, Jeff. Gold star for Me! Yay!)

So, go ahead, Jeff - pull out of Online Integrity. Join Trevino for a drink on the patio. Your macho Fancy Lad turned tut-tutting Society Lady is a bit of a hard sell to those of us who posses even average intelligence and humanity.

[Update] - No, it appears my first instincts about Goldstein may have been correct. To wit:
I received no email or phone call from anyone at Inside Higher Ed.

A few corrections: 1) I don’t believe I engage in “considerable mocking of liberal academics and ideas.” I taught English for a number of years at a private university in Colorado, in fact, so I’m not unfamiliar with the academy.
I'll pass that mind-fucker on to Thers, Jeff. Ya fucking liar...

But you might be thinking, 'Hey, Rip - which is it, fucking liar or victim?' The mind wobbles, don't it? Yesterday:
Guess Deb isn’t quite done milking her 15 minutes.

This time, however, I’ve contacted the authorities.
Can I get a collective gasp!! from the choir? gasp!! Thank you... now, you're probably wondering what heinous atrocity was commited that would leave Jeff no choice but to contact the authorities... the Authorities!!
Ephu, Count Cockula. Jeff - I really encourage you to have Mrs. Cockula google Satchel so she can see what you do while she’s at work all day. Trust me on this, Jeff. Cunt Cockula really needs to google Satchel.
Umm...yeah... I guess SWAT will be out in full force over that one, eh?

I'm pretty nonplussed by accusations, threats and fiery rhetoric on the internets. Hell, we've all seen (and probably typed) plenty of empty threats, drunken outbursts and strings of profanity that would make our Mothers blush. To paraphrase the old band joke: Instant asshole - just add keyboard. Yep, we've probably all been there, right?

Don't get me wrong - when it comes to children, I'm very rigid in my views of right and wrong behavior. Frankly, I have no sympathy for anyone that abuses women, children, animals or preys on the weak and helpless. (Let me add that the fucking non-human pieces of shit that engage in torture need to be put somewhere uncomfortable. Christ, it's the 21st Century - grow up, you sick fucks.) Call me a bleeding heart Liberal, if it makes you feel better.

But, back to Jeff, where was the hot-house outrage when someone made a comment about Thers' daughter? 'It wasn't one of My commentors!' That's it? Where was the RightWing hue and cry about the sanctity of children? No-fucking-where, that's where. Goldstein's regular commentors were nothing, if not loyal, and the issue became 'Why won't Thers produce the IP? Thers is lying!' Where were the RightWing 'Family Values' bloggers who, you'd think, would have jumped up to align themselves with a Father, take a stand and type, 'Say what you will about me - but children are Off Limits!'? Again, no-fucking-where, that's where. Where was the 'Politics be damned!' condemnation? You know it...

Jeff, I'll admit that I feel for you, a little bit, after all. I'm sure that you love your son and you're probably a decent father. I'm not a father but I'd hope that, if I were, I wouldn't have to read some churlish comments about my children. But let's face it: You're not special, and you're certainly no more special than Thers.

But hey - whatever it takes to keep you in the limelight... right, brother?

Rip -

Comments:
If Online Integrity had any integrity, several members, including Pasty, would have long ago been asked to leave. That is part of the fucking pledge. But then there would be no one left to kick anyone out, I guess. Where the fuck is their integrity?

It never existed!
 
The will to a system is a lack of integrity.

Nice post, Rip. I think the most amusing claim from the rabid rightblogstaintube is the bleeting entreaty to understand that they have to -- they must, they can't but -- post personal information about people because those people are mean to them and they are, well, frustrated and angry, darnit! O, well, if you're angry and frustrated ...

Integrity doesn’t mean we should be compelled to respect the privacy of those who rely on our restraint to launch the basest personal attacks.

It's been the job of leftists to protect the civil liberties and privacy of U.S. authoritarians for quite some time -- because those leftists value civil liberties and privacy per se.

And, lest anyone think this isn't really me: Goldstein is one dumbass fucking fuckheaded fucker.

That's what gets to me about these guys, too. One minute they're the ass-kickin' progeny of Mencken and Rambo, and the next minute they're sprawled on the fainting-couch and calling for a vinegar poultice because someone called 'em names.

If you can't be honest, you should at least try to have a little dignity.

Agreed, at the least show "good form", no?

so.
 
I can't imagine wanting to discuss hateful comments about my kids with anyone from the media. Maybe that's just me, but it seems... odd.

Shit, if any riduculous online blowup started to become largely focused on a hideous comment about one of my kids, I'd delete my blog. Hope it never comes to that...

Again, though, that's just me. Chewing on things that are disgusting just leaves a bad taste, you know?
 
¿Satchel?

¿Goldstein spends all day contemplating a baseball pitcher?

¿I thought Pasty was a cogerro, no?

so.
