"This is the
biggest Arab defeat since the Six Day War. I love it! Who's you daddy
now biatch?" stjoan1, in a news.yahoo.com discussion,
Perhaps against my better judgment
I responded with "Interesting that you are using the language of
wife-beaters in your description of the US 'victory'."
So far I have had no response from the overexcited stjoan1.
I am thankful, though, that
stjoan1 hasn't responded with the rather amusing insult "liberal
puke"--an epithet that has been hurled at me on several occasions.
I am not entirely sure what it is supposed to mean, though, as my puke
is probably very much the same as the puke of conservatives. Perhaps the
contents of my stomach need a dash of red, white and blue.
(Not a Hippie)
Along the same lines as liberal
puke is the assumption that I am a hippie, or from Berkeley. While I have
been to Berkeley and have seen hippies walking around, I am neither a
hippie nor live in Berkeley.
I may be a liberal, though,
as any self-respecting reactionary conservative can see from this
comment I posted on a discussion
board at bigsoccer.com
(The comment was in response to complaints about the behavior of the peace
"You may have disagreements
about tactics with some of them [peace protesters], however, I am not
sure why that would make you more likely to agree with the hawks."
This was the very well considered
response from Nate505.
"Because they are blocking
traffic? That, and they are just irritating. Who wouldn't want to take
a violent attitude towards a bunch of tree hugging, veggie burrito eating,
pot smoking, Che Guevera t-shirt wearing, Free Mumia chanting dildos?"
March 22nd SF Peace Rally and Action)
Nate505's astonishing display
of erudition has made me completely reconsider my position on the war.
After all, it makes sense that we should invade another country because
Nate505 can't stand the smell of patchouli (and all that other stuff hippie
stuff). I am not sure about the Free Mumia Chanting Dildos, though. That's
way too perverted for me.
It's really quite bizarre that
much of what passes for discussions concerning the war consists of arguing
about style. Those that are against the war are just as guilty of this,
however, outside of blocking traffic, they aren't nearly as brutish
as the true-blue Americans.
