Children of a Much Lesser God

_________________________________

And what was the point of all that?

No point really, other than to show people the dangerous underbelly of right-wing blogthuggery.

And it made me laugh. A salute to the General and his army for keeping it funny. Thank you sir!
Thanks to Dan R. as well. Anytime, mon ami.

Brian, the rule-breaking haiku was priceless.

They've banned me. From two separate IP's. And they deleted most of my posts. That should tell you something about the courage of Rocco DiPippo. Folks coming from all over the web to call them names, and I get banned.

Rocco and the other brownshirts deleted my posts that actually explained why they were doing this. See, these guys still don't understand that what they did was wrong or why. They're no doubt spending the morning high-fiving and grunting about how many comments they managed to accumulate. Witness Jeff's disdain of how few comments I have on the post below. These guys are like spoiled children who don't understand that all the attention they are getting from the adults is because they did something disgusting. All they know is that for once, someone is paying attention to them. They don't understand that their actions could have horrible consequences.

Many is the time that I've skimmed over The Autoeroticist....excuse me....The Autonomist just for laughs, saw things that made me angry or just plain sad, and moved on. Why give them the attention? But this was just beyond any standard of decency.

These guys aren't aberrations. This is the ugly face of the Republican party folks. This where we stand.

I live in the south (in Tennessee in case any of you Autonomist fucks were wondering. I would be glad to give you exact directions for your own personal use. We'll have some laughs) and I've got to tell you, I hear shit like these guys spew all the time. My relatives keep Fox news on 24/7 and will tell you, in great detail how liberals are ruining America and how much we love terrorists. John Kerry wasn't wounded in Vietnam, Jack Murtha should be hanged, and the war in Iraq has just turned a crucial corner. These lies, the kind of thing The Autonomist spouts, are part of the national consciousness. These things are real to people.

And if was all just part of a peacetime national dialogue, I would say more power to them. Believe whatever lies you want to. It's a free country.

But these particular lies are racking up quite the body count, and that's the way guys like Rocco like it. Because every person they shout down, every "terrorist leader" they celebrate the death of, every time a family cowers in terror in Iraq, it makes the voice of doubt in their heads recede just a little. It makes their fear just a little less. It makes them feel like they're right when the enemy dies or shuts up because Gawd is always on the side of the victors. Right always makes right in Autonomist World.

If you look carefully at the small amount of debate that went on in all that, you will notice gaps where several people had their posts deleted. Mine were some but there were others that were much better. See these guys can't handle any type of dissent. Their entire worldview, like their ideological brethren running the country, is based on the fact that they are right. And if one part of their worldview is proved to be false, the entire charade crumbles. Take a look. Read earlier posts and go back into the archives, if you can stand it. You won't find one instance where these children admit that they're wrong on a matter of opinion or ideology.

Being wrong about things, being corrected, and learning from it is how you gain knowledge and grow. It explains a great deal about the inner workings of DiPippo and crew that they are never, ever wrong.

Rocco obviously hoped to spark just this sort of attention, like Coulter before him. Say or do something disgustingly outrageous and people will look at you. The truth is that Rocco will be remembered, if at all, as the bully who tried to incite violence against an innocent woman who took pictures of some houses.

Truly, something to be proud of.

UPDATE: Rocco has removed the post with the photographer's information. The link at the beginning of this post still connects to the heavily censored comments section.

Ahhhh....that's what Neo-Con defeat smells like. I could get used to that.

UPDATE PART DEUX: See, it was all part of a grand plan. The incredible steel mousetrap-like minds have sucked us in and made us part of the...... ahh fuck it. You screwed up big time and got spanked for it. Be a man and admit it, Angelo.

THE LAST WORD: I will let a quote from Linda Spillers, the photographer whose personal information Angelo posted, be the end of this nastiness for me:

"Ironically, photos were taken with Secretary Rumsfeld's permission."

Once again Robert, cognitive dissonance raises its ugly head. Why do soldiers in Iraq think Saddam Hussein was part of 9/11? Why do the evangelicals think, really think, that the end of days is near? Why do they readily believe that honest skepticism is akin to treason? It is because if they did not, they would have to admit their arguments fall off that slippery slope of reality.

Just try to remember that this is why you are still here picking fights with the misguided.

Robert: If you check out the "Autonomist's" main page -- the "grand plan" permalink you posted doesn't work now -- you'll notice yet another remarkably amusing twist in this devolving saga. Seems the "Hitler Youth" wannabes over at antiprotester.blogspot.com can dish it out, but they CAN'T take it -- criticism of any kind! The latest update to that pathetic post "Now That We Have Your Attention" made just a few hours ago, specifies that, due to the numerous "leftist attacks", the blog's Comments will henceforth be MODERATED! What an astoundingly craven bunch of hypocritical WEANIES!!! (Obviously. the "Liberals" of the world have little to fear from any "war" declared on them by that pathetic bunch of PUSSIES -- just *argue* with them, and they run home crying "leftist" to Mommy!) :-)

And none, absolutely none, not one single word from me is getting posted there. And after all the time I spent composing wonderfully nasty long comments for the bastard.

BTW He looks like he's wearing a gun holster inside the zoot suit (of Tome & Jerry fame) of his.

ANd I'm so incensed by the way they talk about Muslims there -I just wanna bang something on his head; wannnabemafiafascist.

Because most of American Presidents, since WWW2, who most of them are war criminals anyway, only preach by atomic bombs to convert nations to their own vision, because they have no fucking ideo how to submit people to their own desire.

There has been a pathological case of American presidents that associate the laws of higher moral authority with nuclear bombs, especially most of impotent US Presidents. Most of the US President often forget what may be true on their side may be also true on the side of the enemy, whether it is in Iran or North Korea or even with the democratic countries like the European Union.
International laws have been hijacked by US megalomaniacs and the balance of power shifted to the ones who are against Bush foreign policies in the rest of the world. Since Bush is the friend of Democracy, I do think that some of these days, his arrogance will be severly punished for betraying american people and waging wars against full sovereignity of other nations. Payback is a bitch.

That's why I didn't even try to reason with them or even make sense. Not that I make sense anyway...but usually at least I try.

I'm thinking of starting a blog, anyway. If that idiot can have one, then I guess I might as well try. My writing isn't much better than his, but at least I have some positive ideas I can contribute.

I was going to reply to Brian's post, then I decide instead to go smoke a ciggie, then I came back then I saw Robert's post.
I am sorry but the US whether they are from the left or the right are not the center of the world. How you stoopid folks are able to talk in the name of Freedom and Democracy by denying the life of others?

Robert made some good points in Palestine but I do blame him to be too pro-american without looking at the rest of the world. That's his opinion anyway...

In the US or Canada you all talk about liberals vs conservators. The damn conservators are neo-nazis in the US and the liberals don't even care anymore about anything. I am socialist before anything else and that's my choice first.

Hmmmm

Please explain.


There are lots of things that are not okey with me. First of all, I only see a Democracy of white people in the US, we forget the other side, the ones that are illegal and spit babies left and right. Instead of integrating them the US under Bush decided to deport them. They are an important pillar of the economy.
Secondly. I was only portrayed my own representations of the US democracy while I was living in France. I went to the US, I've been very much so disappointed by the american model. I do think it is a model that creates violence and preaches its own values only when they feel it is justified. I think it is a very unhealthy model, that only accepts foreigners that go to school and have the pretention, therefore the higher moral authority to accept the disulisionned credo of the USA inside the rest of the world. Not only your government is failing social integration and chose to deport people under the color of skin or the credo of christianity, but your government is a worthless piece of shit that only legitimate people under its own image. I don't call that freedom at all.
Most of all, in case you did not even see it, I am against people that preach in the name of freedom or justice to go attack other people. That is so inherent inside the american society.

Your President is a worthless piece of shit and I mean it. Your President cannot even accept an international law only if he signs it as a "signing statement" so that we very same laws cannot applied against him.

Secondly when I look at the US laws, I am very unhappy about that. Your Presidents since WW2 tried to hijack international laws for their own hegemonic goals by denying the life of other people. You should realize that the US since WW2 chose a different path: they are fighting in the name of freedom only for their own interests. I am also putting in the same bag european countries as well, such as France of course, and the UK.

There is necessarly a differential model between muslim and the West. I blame the West for being superior, I blame also Muslims for being inferior and not to open up to the philosophy of Nietzsche. We are 2 different mentalities, but I found out something in my later experience: liberalism only happen naturally, otherwise your government is going to reduce people under their own laws, which is under the name of Allah right now.

me, too (both: honored and linking up ;-) )

A few hours before FREUD died, he sais it was all about sexual pulsions.

we call that "senile horniness" - nothing to be serious about...

robert
If you've got something to say, I suggest you say it. Vague inuendo does not impress me.

pu, that's far below the belt (as we say here) - and not really reasonable: "your president" e.g. is just as true for robert as for nemo or - me...

please robert, you should ignore pu here, i guess he smoked too much or he is too tired or drunk or maybe just frustrated - in those cases we know him being a little "weird", look at the "wonderful" statement of the clitoris, where he - without any hesitance - compared a stupid measly right-wing with any woman, two posts under barnita...

You seem to have gotten under Angelo "Rocco" DiPippo's skin. Now he's posted his pic with his real address (after having been outed by someone at Jesus' General). Has a wife who's an artist, apparently. One feels sorry for her.

You know, I emailed our little friend yesterday after finding out that I could not indeed post a message on his blog. I thought perhaps a fresh face might not be so intimidating considering I have never spoken of or to the man previously.

My message went as follows:

You sir, are a coward and a fake. Please lower your megaphone for a few moments and actually hear what those who would dissent against your intolerance would say to you. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate you because you are a coward. I don't hate you because you are an ignorant fool. I don't hate you because you appear to represent the capitalist ideology that breeds ignorance and complacency. I do, however, dislike being slapped in the face with the white glove publicly and being restrained by your fascist network from seeking reciprocal satisfaction. If we are going to serve volleys back and forth, I would appreciate the gesture of you either lowering the net when the volley gets returned both ways or keeping it up at all times.

Sincerely,

Jason J. Kreul


It would seem that Mr. DiPippo has elected to decline my invitation for further discourse on this subject. I have no doubt that the little F*ckbag stops by here to see what we are saying, since he hasn't the testicular fortitude to allow dissent on his own blogspace. So I once again offer this open invitation to this slimy little wormbag to pull his dick out of the 14 year old boy and step up to be a man.

But then again some people find the likes of mme rather beligerent for their taste so I would expect no satisfaction. Just thought I'd finish my two cents worth.

When Jason goes for blood, he goes for blood. I like it.

Hubris,

"You seem to have gotten under Angelo "Rocco" DiPippo's skin."

What Angelo can't grasp is that I couldn't care less about his insane rantings. This was about that photographer and their attempts to cause her harm. In the past I would try to discuss various points with the boys but, as you see, they're not much for dissent. As I indicated earlier, my visits there now are of the "ewww! look at that" novelty variety.


I losta lot of hatred when I saw Angelo's picture he posted. I really didn't understand him before. Now I do. The picture tells you all you ever needed to know.

Now I'm taking my boy to a picnic and play with some sparklers. Everyone be safe and enjoy.

I just saw his picture too. Poor guy must still be devastated that they canceled Miami Vice. I had already seen him on the Warren Builders website.

Any tips on designing a blog? I don't really know where to start. I dabbled a bit in HTML in the past, but now I have forgotten it all. I don't even know what I want to blog about. When I get emotional about things, I tend to rant and I am scared I will end up as a socialist version of Rocco.

I have found Blogger to have the easiest interface of all the hosts. You can start your blog with little or no experience with HTML. I bitch a great deal about Blogger's glitches and outages but after this last bout I looked around at some other blog hosts and I have a new appreciation for the 'ol Blogger.

Click on the link in the upper left corner of this page and it will take you right to Blogger dashboard. Don't worry, If I can do it, anyone can.

You can pick from standard templates and then tinker 'till your hearts content. You can also enable and disable comments or control who has access to your blog.

Sky's the limit. Go for it. Anything I can help with, just yell. Here or at
thornblog@yahoo.com.

"I don't hate you because you are a coward. I don't hate you because you are an ignorant fool. I don't hate you because you appear to represent the capitalist ideology that breeds ignorance and complacency." ==== Jason: Excellent comeback to that despicable Fascist toady. I find that, when I'm aroused to outright hatred of those vile Brownshirts -- fairly often, I have to admit -- it's typically a perfectly *natural*, reasonable reaction to their utterly loathsome tactics.(We *are* talking the epitome of Neo-Nazi / KKK type scum here, though they consistently try to depict themselves and their hate-mongering as "patriotic".) Of course, their generalized contempt for verifiable facts is also amazingly "grating" to anyone who's ever done an *ounce* of research, as you assuredly know yourself. ==== BTW: If you check out Glenn Greenwald's latest blog entries, you'll find that, confronted with utterly *irrefutable* evidence of their belligerent assininity, the vast majority of those wing-nut bloggers have simply hunkered down and "stuck to their story"! That's right, even *with* the knowledge that Rumsfeld and the Secret Service fully approved that coverage in advance, the travel piece is *still* proof (in their addled brains) of "treasonous intent" by the Times.) ==== Also, if anyone wants to know how genuinely threatened we should feel by those would-be cyber-Nazis, the DC demonstration -- summoning "thousands of outraged Americans" to appear in front of the NYT's Washington Bureau -- produced a whopping 20 attendees. TWENTY!!! And FOUR of them were actually organizers, leaving only *16* "outraged Americans" protesting at the "event". (Of course, that does break the OLD FReepers DC record, where a proclaimed 1000-man "counter-protest" delivered a DOZEN.) HA HA HA HA HA!

What I find funny about DiPippo's post mentioning Robert is that he says, "come out come out you little coward"- after explaining he's banned Robert multiple times.

The amount of cognitive dissonance is breathtaking.

If "Rocco" DiPippo had any credibility and actually believed any of the crap he twists together, he would have enlisted years ago.

Enlist, enlist, you little coward!

Sure, it's fun to toss a little bait into his pond now and then, but ask yourself: is it reasonable to debate an unreasonable person?

There are bigger fish to fry.


PS: E-mail me privately with anything you want posted there. I want my IP banned, too.
