The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

“There are some people you like immediately, some whom you think you might learn to like in the fullness of time, and some that you simply want to push away from you with a sharp stick.” ― Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

If you've ever doubted that the extreme wing of the GOP was riding the crazy train off into The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul, the following comments, found on an extremist blog, will remove all uncertainty. There are brave and dedicated bloggers who do the slogging work of reading and then reporting on what the extremists say; but just this once, I wanted to see for myself if there really, truly were groups of people who embrace and feed off of the murky terror that percolates up from their deepest swamps of fear and ignorance.  Unsurprisingly, I found that there are.

The blog I found is a public one that any curious person can read.  Here is a glimpse into their long dark tea-time of the soul.  You must remind yourselves while reading these statements that these are your fellow Americans; they are your neighbors.  

And they vote:

"My good friend XXX the other day wondered why we confuse behavioral wrongs with civil rights. If pedophilia is wrong, why isn’t sodomy?" All forms of this behavior carry the risk of significant health hazards; including anal and throat cancer, which all of us end up paying for under the socialist health care mandates. If we end up paying the tab, shouldn’t we have a say in the matter?

Does this person not know that smoking cigarettes, chewing tobacco, or drinking alcohol all carry the risk of significant health hazards?  Does this person have a problem with paying for those risky behaviors?  Or just with homosexual behaviors? Or is this person just a plain, ordinary homophobe who wants to punish only certain behaviors his religion doesn't approve of but let other behaviors get a pass?

There are a number of prohibited acts in our country today, most of them “wrong.” We react with disgust whenever individuals engage in sexual conduct with a person under the age of 18. We call refer to such persons as pedophiles and perverts, and whenever we find out about such people, we put them in jail. It is a perversion. So too is human sexual contact with animals. These are simply wrong —and unacceptable. Why, then, must we accept homosexual behavior when it is just as offensive to most people.

Obviously these folks don't know the difference between private consensual sex between adults and pedophilia. Pedophilia occurs when sexually-based crimes are committed against legally underage victims. Neither a legally underage child nor an animal can give their consent to a sexual act.  IOW you can't have "sexy time" with your St. Bernard because she can't tell you that she's ovulating and doesn't want to be the mother of your child.

This dude also apparently doesn't know that being homosexual is not against the law in America.  He needs to move to a Muslim country where it IS illegal, so that his fondest dreams of demonizing, punishing, and even killing people because of who they are and who they love can come true.  

Here's a nifty idea for this dude who's so offended because he believes he has to "accept homosexual behavior: " Don't look at it.  If you see two men or two women holding hands and being loving to each other, LOOK THE OTHER WAY! IMMEDIATELY! DO NOT LOOK BACK!  If you do, you may turn into a pillar of sugar and learn to appreciate seeing people in loving relationships!

Here's what should offend you:  Heterosexual couples where the man beats the crap out of his partner, or heterosexual men who delight in degrading women, or heterosexual women who support that sort of degeneracy.

I just have this feeling that homosexuals strive to bring more into their lifestyle so they have more persons available to them. They’ve heavily infiltrated all levels of influential society -politics-media-education. I really do find most of them (that I’ve met) to be total whores, interested only in recreational sex versus developing a relationship, though there are those who seem interested in a long term relationship. I see the majority or a large number of them as sex vampires. I’m not an expert thankfully.

Who are the people this dude hangs with?  "Total whores?"  "Sex vampires?" Who want "to bring more into their lifestyle so they have more persons available to them?" What sort of bars and clubs does he frequent?   

"They've heavily infiltrated all levels of influential society - politics-media-education." That's an interestingly paranoid concept of what gay people have done: "infiltrated."  

This person hasn't the ability to understand that gay people live and breathe just like all of us live and breathe and occupy all levels of human endeavor because they are as human as the unfortunate ninnyhammer who wrote that.  It is very likely that our gay brothers and sisters have more humanity in them than does the person who believes gay people "infiltrate" rather than participate. 

Words have consequences.  The dude who wrote the above comment thinks of homosexuals as "others." He sees them as undeserving of inclusion in normal human activities because they have secretly and with malice insinuated themselves into human life experiences reserved exclusively for straight people. That's a malignant excuse for the weak-minded but strong-armed homophobes to track down, bully, or worse, beat the life out of the "infiltrators."

This person dehumanized gay people -- he described them as "vampires" and "whores" and found them not deserving of being part of humanity.  They "infiltrate!"  Not participate!  And not ONE PERSON on that blog disagreed with his assessment of gay people.

But after sharing his "feeling" on his limited experiences, he does admit in his limited way that he knows nothing.  A little bit of honesty sometimes bleeds through their arrogance.

They don't like New York City Mayor De Blasio.  What a surprise.

XXXXXXX…I can always count on you to tweak an idea and make it that much better. De Blasio is a psychopath and a true liberal maggot. I’d love to see the NYPD shoot him the bird and start shooting more mudslimes on sight on orders from the Police Commissioner. Too many Blacks need the moon god XXXXXXX….they have little else to look forward to in their miserable lives. So it’s the only way for them to achieve something….

"Psychopath" and "true liberal maggot."   And "Too many Blacks need the moon god because...they have little their miserable lives."  Speaking of miserable lives, I've yet to encounter a happy, well-adjusted person who talks about people they don't know so wretchedly.  This dude needs to look into the deep dark tea party-time of his soul to discover where so much of his pitiable unhappiness comes from.

@ XXX Maybe I was wrong and De Blasio is a psychopath. I think he should keep the hatchets, for they serve a useful purpose, and rid ourselves of blacks professing adherence to the moon god.

As far as Blasio and all the other democrats the locals elect to rape them – Yes Please let them be raped. It is the only way they even have a chance of learning something. Detroit suggests that the learning process is impossible. How bad does it have to get?

Hatchets for killing blacks and dreams of raping people?   How bad does it have to get?  See above. It can't get any worse than wishing for people to be raped and butchered.  This is the nightmarish landscape these unhappy, unfortunate people populate.

And of course, they don't like Obummer, Ovomit, Obola, the Marxist, Socialist, Commie, Kenyan, America-hating, Obola-infecting Black President of the U.S.:

"And here I thought Allahu Akbar meant Hail Obama. The left always screaming about how the right is afraid of those scary Muslims, So who really is afraid here? yet they are the ones who won’t even admit it."

Admit what? That the extreme right has lost its mind? No one's afraid to admit that is a hard, cold fact represented by statements from themselves.

 "Excuse me but F— Obama."

You're excused. From the human race. Now please leave.

There's something morbidly comical in all of this in the statements above and below by one of the commenters at this blog who, after reading "Excuse me but F-Obama." blames President Obama for the potty-mouth people inhabiting this blogging community. The people who say F-Obama, are the same people who wish blacks to be raped and butchered.  But ignoring their own disorderly and disrespectful statements, they whine about other people's disorderly and disrespectful statements:

"...we have a generation of idiots that really do not know how to conduct themselves in an orderly, respectful society. No one has manners, from the President who subjects the nation to his sexual deviance,..."

In their upside down universe, a man who is faithful to his wife and family is a sexual deviant. Hatred distorts the mind, and it is never more evident than in the above examples of their whining about the lack of manners and respect in American culture while displaying none of it themselves.  Their motto must be:  "Manners and respect are for thee, not me." 

 "XXX is exactly right about obama. he is an enemy of the United States and any civilized society. Where did he get the billion for the 08 campaign? I’d say most of it came from muslim states."

Barack Obama, who was elected twice by a majority of Americans and an electoral landslide, is an "enemy of the United States and any civilized society?" I suppose having a forum where people like this can express their deepest and darkest hatreds is a good thing, otherwise these folks would be eating paste and sticking forks in their eyes.

"I call them “Stuck in the Sixties” Hippies You can tell just by their rants. And where did his education money come from too right XXX? He’s been groomed for quite some time and his followers are like ‘Don’t look here, look over there’ like good little puppets."

 "Good point XXXX, he’s been backed and groomed for quite some time. At least from high school, and probably all the way back. And it’s not soros even though soros may have contributed. I really think its the muslims. I personally don’t see a lot of difference between obama and osama. Truly."

So back in the late Sixties, when he was 8 years old, the hippies groomed Obama to be the usurper, while at the same time they raised money from "the muslims." Neat trick, that. And this great thinker doesn't see "a lot of difference between obama and osama." Of course not. And I, personally, don't see a lot of difference between this person and a bag of hair. Truly.

 Had enough? Me too.

It's a dank and dirty internet out there; but once in a while, someone has to wade into the bowels of the blogsphere and bring to light what these suffering souls agonize over. There's not much we can do to help them through their dark tea party-time, but at the very least we can read what they have to say, look at the clock to see how much time we've wasted, and then have a good stiff drink.

He's doing a lousy job of infecting the nation with Ebola.

Meanwhile, Cuomo and Christie in a move sure to be applauded on the right utterly insult a dedicated nurse who volunteered in Africa.
To Obama's credit he seems to have made those two back track on their stupidity.

Still, our response will be at least partially driven by the poster you cite who seem shaped by their own bigotry and ignorance reinforced by the rabies media.

And the last thing they will do is admit their irrational response is driven by racial bigotry.

Did you find this stuff on a parody blog?

In my opinion, the only closure that can be reached with the lunatic fringe is to NOT INVITE THEM INTO YOUR LIVES. Last month in back-to-back articles, I asked:

Do you read the same words on screen that I read?

Do you read the same messages of anti-Semitism, outright racism, misogyny, homophobia and partisan hatred that I read on screen? Do you go to to engage self-avowed bigots in conversation? Or don a white sheet and visit the KKK to chat with them? Sometimes I wonder who the crazy people are - verbally abusive bigots or folks looking for an adrenaline rush? No thank you!

Last month, I asked:

Why go there? Why subject yourself to bad faith arguments, sleazy ad hominem personal attacks, falsehoods, and never-ending verbal abuse!

After years of blogging, most of you should know by now their rules of engagement:

Distort, misquote, harp, carp, nitpick, accuse, slander, insult, heckle, taunt, and get angry – all while accusing your opponent of behaving in precisely the same manner.

So why go there? There is an ethical issue at stake here: Why do unto them as they do unto you? Why invite them into your respective forums (and subject your readers to their abuse)?

A fool’s mission, why waste your time! My time! Our time!

Complete insanity rules the extremist mind. The things that they contribute to that blog proves it without any room for doubt.

Are we looking down the rabbit hole?

Last year I dealt with a certain commenter/blogger (still seen actively in blogs we read and comment on) who spammed my blog with "you suck!" messages by blocking his comments. A reasonable response to a very bad mannered individual apparently hadn't gotten past socializing skills learned in Kindergarten.

This person responded by trying to post hundreds of obsessive penis comments, gay sex fantasies (sometimes in the form of poetry... take that, FreeThinke!), nude photos, and even rape threats around Christmas time.

This reminded me of the obsessive comments by the unnamed "public blog" that Shaw mentioned in her parent post.

Not that I find anything wrong with homosexuality, but individuals who go into it in repeated salacious details about a practice they claim to abhor (or in the case of my stalker: not share) probably have certain issues themselves.

Dervish Sanders said...

Who is this "certain commenter/blogger" that dmarks refers to? I have an idea of who he's talking about, but if he is talking about that person - most of what he claims happened never did. BTW, if we're relating our personal experiences in regards to harassment from other bloggers - I have also been the subject of pernicious lies (including those of a sexual nature) at the hands of someone active on the blogs we read and comment on. This person accused me of supporting sex crimes against children and agreed that I might be on a registered sexual offender list... all because of a political disagreement.
