Glenn Beck, South Park, & Satire

This post is dedicated to all of my family members who watch Glenn Beck and take him seriously. In all fairness to South Park, I think that Glenn Beck really needs to be on Comedy Central (although, that might be insulting to Jon Stewart…) whereas South Park would probably do well on Fox News…

Here is the inspiration for the South Park parody of Glenn Beck. It’s not very difficult to parody ridiculousness.

I won an award!

Eric Stoller won an award for writing about social justice
I was sifting through my web site statistics when I found yet another inbound link from a hate-spewing, neo-nazi, white supremacist website. It’s the type of thing that happens when word gets out that yet another Swiss-German, anti-racist, feminist, ally, man is blogging about social justice issues. The white supremacists link to your site and visit in droves. Jim S., who graciously nominated me for the award, has commented on my site a couple times and has left hundreds of bigoted comments on the aforementioned (not directly linked as I refuse to send link juice in their direction) site.

The full text of the award is as follows:

“We ought to have a thread for “wussified liberal race traitor of the week.”

I nominate Eric Stoller!

Translation: This guy is blogging about racism and he’s white! What the hell are we going to do about him? Let’s call him a wuss (notice the way they weave sexism into the award, I think that counts for double!), a liberal (they must have found out that since I do not identify as a liberal that this would burn like a paper cut) and a race traitor (I prefer the term: “social justice patriot”).

Bleach and starch

Pat Buchanan apparently huffs bleach and starch before he writes for his blog
Pat Buchanan must have been huffing bleach and/or starch when he wrote this post on his blog. I usually reserve my inner monologues for posts in response to a comment. However, PJB’s post deserves a bit of commentary. (I’ve clipped only a portion of his white supremacist musings.)
