Connie, by the way, apparently still has no problem with atrocities, racism, bigotry, and violence against women. When her buddy John C. Hall Jr. uses the same language she claims to deplore in rap lyrics, she says nothing; recall that she once defended Pat Hines’s antiSemitism … really? Same goes for Connie defending Hall’s antiSemitism. Maybe she can spend some time telling us how her views differ from those of Glenn Miller.
Folks, when I post material showing that John C. Hall., Jr., uses the n-word, in a post she refers to later on at her blog, but she then has the effrontery to assert: “I’m unaware of John using such language,” we must assume that she’s a liar, stupid, or both.
Well, there's another example of slippery lying from the lying professor...or maybe I should give him the benefit of the doubt and say he probably didn't understand what I meant.
I meant that I was unaware of John C. Hall using anti-Semitic language. I do know he considers Jewish folks in the north to be critical of the Christian South, and have read some of his comments to that effect. But that doesn't conform to my understanding of anti-Semitism, which is hatred of Jews and the fomenting of hatred for them in others. I don't believe criticism of blacks or Jews or anyone else automatically constitutes hatred of them.
I see a lot of stuff online I don't agree with, both from people who oppose and hate Southern heritage, and those who respect and defend it. Unlike Simpson, I don't think I'm under any obligation to rake people I basically agree with over the coals because of one or two differences of opinion. If he wants to equate my not doing that as approval or agreement, well, that's just Simpson exhibiting a flaw in his reasoning.
From a comment thread on Crossroads several years back, the ever pedantic Ms. Blough takes exception to my claim that Jewish folks overwhelmingly identify and vote Democrat, with this:
Ms. Chastain-Yet again, you’ve shown us your aversion to doing the most minimal research lest it conflict with your assumptions and stereotypical views. The Neo-Conservative movement which was enormously influential in both Bush (41) and Bush (43) administrations is heavily Jewish, especially in its founder and leadership. No group is monolithic in its views and to dismiss someone’s work unread because of such stereotypes is at best lazy and at worst blind prejudice.
The fact that D.C. neocons are heavily Jewish doesn't disprove my claim that the Jewish population of the US identifies and votes overwhelmingly Democrat:
From Pew Forums
(47% Democrat and 18% lean Democrat = 65% .... more than 2/3, which I would consider overwhelming, particularly when the remaining 34% is divided four ways).
From Jewish Virtual Library
The godfather of neo-conservatism was Irving Kristol, who quipped that a neo-con was a liberal who got mugged by reality. Yes, these folks refugeed out of the Democrat party and oozed into the Republican party, and took it places true conservatives did not approve of or wish to follow. That is why there is a Tea Party made of true conservatives today.
I'm famous ... again. Simpson's been tolling the Internet (so what else is new?) and he found a post by a demented leftist who was, shall we say, disapproving of my essays at The False Rape Society.(Apparently Simpson is fascinated with my essays for The False Rape Society).
The post is at a blog titled "A Radical Profeminist" run by a Julian Real, who describes himself thusly,"I am a white, class-privileged, Western academically and non-academically educated, intergender (and, much more importantly, anti-gender) male who is also gay, asexual, Jewish, and a survivor of childhood sexual assault and adult sexual exploitation. Contrary to Internet rumors, I don't support any form of genocide, including against any percent of the male population. I don't hate men (or women or transgender people). I am not anti-sex; I'm anti-sexxxism. I'm not anti-male; I'm against male supremacy."
The blog's header sez, "This blog exists to challenge the oppressive forces of white, heterosexual, and male supremacy. I understand each to be institutionalized ideologies that are mutually reinforcing. They work together as braided practices which are misogynistic, heterosexist, racist, genocidal, and ecocidal."
Real's demented rant about me is here. You can read it, but unless you share his demented outlook, you might not be able to understand it....
BTW, for those who are interested in my essays for The False Rape Society, you can read all of them here:
Just try to find where I've promoted rape in any of those essays, and know when Liberty Lamprey says I have, s/he's lying. Once again, I have to wonder if Simpson, Lamprey and all those who blow a gasket over criticism of false rape accusations are okay with innocent men going to prison for 20 or 30 years for rapes they did not commit.
Simpson has just made a Crossroads post -- a primer about me consisting of one-paragraph (or less) screenshots of comments by me in various comment threads around the Internet. I guess he's been tiptoeing through cyberspace again...
Apparently, he's putting them forth as examples of some kind of hate'n'racism or whatever. He cherry picked a lot of them from my comments here.
If you have some time and can stomach to read it, you'll find hate-comments there of the type that helped to inspire the idea for Gone South.
One thing I notice about his criticism of me is that he never attempts to refute what I say. I'm not surprised. It kinda reminds me of the time Levin and some of his floggerettes jumped all over me for using the term "the darker side of slavery" (they asked me, "What do you consider to be the brighter side?" or some such nonsense) and I had to remind them that a few comments before mine, it was LEVIN who had FIRST used that term, the darker side of slavery. Do you think anybody had jumped on HIM for using it? What a bunch if hypocrites...
You cannot expect reasonable, honest debate from Floggers and their followers. I guess they're skeered of it....

An exchange by Goad Gatsby and Simpson at the latter's flog:
For any folks out there reading my blog who are interested in the truth -- what I said is that I've found no reliable DOCUMENTATION of the incident, which isn't the same thing as saying it never happened.
