X-Post: Courageous Trannie Donald Douglas

Anyone else think Donald's trying to find his way out of a dark closet of his own making?

Dr Douglas is accusing others of deviant sexuality... but look who keeps writing all these posts about transsexuality and pedophilia... Even his fascination with assholes is telling... Anyone else thinkin' Donald doth protest too much...?

"The LULZ write themselves..."

No Donald... That's you writing the LULZ (but the humor isn't quite where you think it is... Quick clue, Donald: They're not laughing WITH you, buddy...)

Donald's Latest Pathetic Ad Hominem Attack

Donald obviously can't handle having his posts shown up as the dishonest hypocritical nonsense they so often are, and feels he must lash out with this kinda fact-free ad hom silliness in reply...

I guess lying about me is better than spreading his fucked up sociopolitical ideas about America and the world, but Jesus Sheeples... Dr. Douglas' bullshit attacks are as nonsensical and impotent as his politics...

If Donald thought he had the better argument on the merits, he wouldn't be changing the subject, or stooping so low... I'm just sayin' it's something one ought to consider...

X-Post: Donald Douglas: Satire Impaired

Donald will no doubt deny, deny, deny he misunderstood the intent of the video should anyone ever try to explain it to him--or else insist that everyone else is wrong, wrong, wrong, and that his interpretation alone is correct--but his post pretty much speaks for itself...
American Power: It's Over. The U.S. is Toast. I Give Up!

X-Post: There is simply no lie that Donald Douglas will not try to tell and sell...

In his most recent post, Donald tries to equate my support for marriage equality to pedophilia. As always, it's a specious charge to make, and again exposes the way Dr Douglas thinks about the gay folks around him, and about his tenuous hold on the truth.

Other than one link to me saying that folks have told me that Donald Douglas is a lost cause not worth debating online--one even suggesting that he might be dangerous--and my saying that I believed it was worth it, in order to expose a way of thinking that I believe is harmful to this country, Donald never quotes me, preferring instead to tell you what he claims I've said. (This is a common trick by Dr. Douglas... By paraphrasing his "enemy" rather than quoting him, Donald can create whatever narrative he wishes, without having to confront the other person's actual words or their actual connotative and denotative meanings. I'd imagine he thinks the people who read his posts are too foolish or blinded by partisanship to notice his deception or to care... ...and sadly, perhaps a few actually are...)

A few specifics...
"...REPSAC3 is all about live and let live and if it feels good do it."
Sadly, no. Were Donald brave enough to quote the things I've said about morality (whether sexual or otherwise), I'm sure he'd find that I advocate for both self-imposed and legally-mandated limits on behavior. While I do believe in personal freedom, personal freedom is not and should not be absolute. Donald Douglas is lying.
"When conservatives express traditional moral values he attacks them as bigots."
Again, sadly no. I have no problem with anyone discussing their own traditional moral values, and I've never attacked anyone for doing so. I have objected when folks have expressed the desire to make all Americans--whatever their religious or moral background--subject to laws based on the teachings of Christ (or God, or Buddha, or any other religious figure). America is not a theocracy, and American laws must have a secular basis in man's law, not God's law. I also don't buy into the Family Research Council's definition of civil rights, which suggests that all protected classes must be "inborn"--or mentioned in the Constitution (a clever way of including religion, which of course is not inborn, without tipping their hand)--or they are not legitimate. I want Americans protected from discrimination by law (and in law), and I include discrimination against gay Americans in those legal protections.

Most recently, I have come down on Donald Douglas for suggesting that posts eulogizing and memorializing marriage equality and women's health activist Christina Santiago were exploiting her death for political gain. (See: NoH8, Dr. Douglas and Donald Douglas attacks them again, for noticing). I believe that this is what has Dr. Douglas so upset--and so willing to fabricate these lies--in the post to which I'm responding. Your milage may vary...
"Like the endless progressive claims of "racism," [repsac3] screams "BIGOTRY!!" like a headless horseman charging along full-steam until the word is denuded of all meaning. It's just an epithet for attacking folks..."
Those familiar with the back and forth between Donald and I should recognize this passage as parroting (in an "I'm rubber, you're glue" style) things I've often said about Donald Douglas and his one-time use of the word "nihilist" to describe and denote pretty much everyone with whom he disagreed. (Recent substitutes include "communist-left," "ASFL," "extremist", ...), but for those unfamiliar, three examples from the last three years:

I wrote (in 2009): "Your NeoRaven-like chirpings of "Nihilist!" "Nihilist!" aimed at everyone with whom you disagree, and your unwillingness and inability to back much of what you say has made you seem weak and ineffective."

From 2010: "As Donald attacked other bloggers on his site or theirs, labeling them no good nihilists everywhere he went, this whole "nihilist" schtick of his became kind of a joke around the liberal blogosphere, and folks began to know him as the wingnut who goes around calling everyone nihilists, like the boy who cried wolf... He practically made the word meaningless through repetition..."

And from less than three weeks ago: "Terms like "nihilist" and. "racist" and "Stalinist" (and I've no doubt "anarchist" and "terrorist," as well) are nothing more than epithets to Donald. He might just as well be calling folks fucktard or asshat for all the accuracy with which redeploys them. Donald Douglas disagrees with you; Donald Douglas calls you a name... A meaningless, insulting, fact free name... And he thinks he's actually said something of substance by doing so... It's kinda pathetic..."

The fact is you'll seldom find me suggesting that someone is a bigot without my including a direct quote and link citing the full post or comment from which the quote was lifted, for context. Try holding Dr Douglas' accusations to that standard, and you'll quickly find it is one he often cannot or will not meet. I leave it to the reader to figure out why...
"And as we've seen in recent posts, today's truly extremist hatred and demonology is the exclusive domain of the progressive left."
Absolutes like these--where "they" are always evil, and "we" are always angels--should tip one off to the fact that Donald Douglas is preaching his own pseudo-religious catechism of conservative love and liberal hate, and nothing more.

Anyone who is being realistic is willing to admit that there are devils and angels all along the sociopolitical spectrum, and that pinpointing individual acts by individual actors does not say much of anything about the whole of any sociopolitical group... not the ones you (or "he") belong(s) to, or the ones you (or "she") do(es) not belong to. (There are words for those who attribute the sins (or accomplishments) of the individual to everyone in the groups to which that individual belongs... It'll come to me... Suffice to say, such bullshit thinking seldom leads anywhere worthwhile or good.)
"And W. James Casper is right up there as among the worst of the worst radical hate-bloggers in the world. No facts can get inside that warped mind. No outrage is evil enough to make W. James Casper speak up and cry, "Enough!'' Hate envelops all sense and meaning and moral right. Decency has been obliterated."
Donald is welcome to his opinions, of course... ...but a quick perusal of my posts pretty quickly puts the lie to his words, beginning with those posts about Donald's disrespect for Christina Santiago and those who mourn her death that I spoke about and linked to earlier... Much of what I discuss is about my morality and decency, and the morality and decency (or lack of it) of those I write about.
"In any case, considering that no social perversion is out of bounds for W. James Casper's sick socialist rim-station ideology, I'm putting money on it that he's down with the APA's push to legalize pedophilia."
"...sick socialist rim-station ideology..." Like I said before... Just epithets divorced from any objective facts... ...which Donald uses to allege yet more fact-free bullshit about his perceived enemy. Libelous propaganda. Sloppy, obvious, crude, but libelous propaganda, nevertheless...
"W. James Casper repeatedly claims that we shouldn't object to consenting homosexual couples engaging in any sex acts they see fit."
I'd have to see the quotes, but I'm willing to bet I included the word "adult" somewhere near the word "consenting," and that I included heterosexual couples in that, as well. I believe that where consenting adults are concerned, the neighbors and the government have no more business judging what folks do behind closed doors than those consenting adults are willing to give them. Obviously, that does not include rape, statutory or otherwise... But that pretty obvious fact doesn't stop Donald Douglas from alleging:
"Well, 5'll get you 10 that W. James Casper will offer the same kind of weaselly moral-free logic on the legalization of pedophilia debate."
No quotes, and a complete disregard for the obvious in the very words he paraphrased--(and when even your own paraphrase contradicts you, you've exposed the utter ridiculousness of your argument)--but Donald Douglas presses on, lying and libeling for all to see...

Donald obviously doesn't like me. (One might even use the words "Hate Blogger" to describe Donald Douglas.) He doesn't like that I discuss the words he writes and the things he says, and that I expose him for the shell of a man he chooses to be. Donald Douglas is a liar and a hater. And the more he engages in these dishonest posts, the more people see that he is a liar and a hate-filled partisan who will stop at nothing to destroy the folks with whom he disagrees...

American Power: Stay Classy Progressives: Gay Rights Extremists Lash Out After NOH8 Caught Wellstoning the Death of Christina Santiago

For most of us, the articles and posts commemorating Christina are about mourning the death of a pretty, young, motivated activist and human being. The only one politicizing Christina's death or trying to exploit it for political gain is Donald Douglas. To the best of my knowledge, the only person who is attacking NOH8 and those who mourn Christina, as person or as an activist, for what they've written about her since her death is Donald Douglas. This isn't about Republicans, conservatives, Christians, or even about homophobes and bigots. This is about Donald Douglas, and about his need to destroy what he cannot accept or understand, no matter the cost to his own humanity. That Dr. Douglas is trying to turn it around and paint those who call him out for his bigoted insensitivity toward Christina Santiago and her friends and family as the aggressors is really disgusting... For those familiar with Donald Douglas, however, it isn't that surprising.

"No Friends" - American Power

I guess Don's rule is, "When you can't beat 'em, just make stuff up about 'em, and hope somebody buys into your bullshit."

Pretty pathetic, if ya ask me...

Sure, I could refute the thing point by point, exposing all of Dr. Douglas' lies... But with ad hominem attacks like this, why even bother? I know the truth, my friends--offline, online, and fellow nihilists--know the truth, and when it comes right down to it, down in that tiny part of his soul that hasn't yet been tainted by partisanship and bile, Donald Douglas knows the truth, too. There's no need to "prove" a thing to anyone...

And besides... Doesn't the attack itself say more about Dr Douglas than any expose of his nonsense ever could?

X-Post: NoH8, Dr. Douglas - Highlighting the work of activist Christina Santiago after her sudden death at age 29 isn't "crass exploitation" *UPDATED: Donald Douglas Doubles Down*

Alisha Marie Brennon (left) and Christina Santiago (right) pose for their NOH8 Campaign photo nearly 1 year ago.

It seems Donald Douglas has once again allowed his political and sociological beliefs to cloud his humanity.

After reading about the death of LGBT, marriage equality, and woman's rights activist Christina Santiago at the Indiana State Fair (she was one of five people who died when the concert stage blew over just before the Sugarland concert), and seeing the touching tribute paid to her by the NOH8 Campaign-- Christina and her partner, Alisha Marie Brennon, who was with Christina at the concert and is currently in intensive care, participated in an open call NOH8 photo shoot in 2010 --let his emotions and his bigotry take over, resulting in the following post:
Extremist NOH8 Campaign Exploits Christina Santiago Death for Crass Political Gain
This is disgusting.

They couldn't just giver her a beautiful commemoration. They had to turn Ms. Santiago death into sick sympathy shakedown:

Tragedies like this just illustrate how important it is for couples to have the rights that allow them to celebrate their love and their lives now.

Christina and Alisha were one of the first couples to get a civil union in Cook County when civil unions became legal in Illinois earlier this year. Those who claim the issue of same sex marriages and civil unions can "wait" should think hard about that idea after reading stories like these. This beautiful couple only had a short few months together to celebrate their civil union -- but we take solace in the fact they at least had that opportunity to prove their love to the world, however brief.
A beautiful young woman is dead. And LGBT ASFL NOH8 couldn't simply commemorate her life with dignity. These idiots had to turn it into some kind of epic guilt trip about "only" a few months to celebrate a civil union.

People die. And always, every death reminds us for whom the bell tolls. It toll for thee.

A much more reserved article at Chicago Tribune, "Health center mourns staffer killed in Indiana State Fair stage accident"

Read the NOH8 Campaign post "Remembering Christina Santiago"--the one Donald refers to as a "sick sympathy shakedown"--and decide for yourself whether it was suitably dignified and reserved, or an "epic guilt trip." But Donald's habit of making these kinda pronouncements so soon after folks die (See his series on the death of Elizabeth Edwards, for example. Links below.) is the real "crass exploitation for political gain," as far as I'm concerned...

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
- John Donne

X-Post: A Bigot's a Bigot, no Matter how Small (That is to say, ethically small)

"While the term [ebonics] is avoided by most linguists, it has gained a certain amount of salience outside of academia (such as on Internet message boards), often as the object of ridicule, particularly when it is inaccurately parodied as more different from Standard American English than it really is. Black American linguist John McWhorter argues that the use of Ebonics as a term does more to hinder black academic achievement than to help it, in that considering an ethnic group's slightly-different speech to be a completely different language from English serves only to widen the perceived divide between whites and blacks in America." - Ebonics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

X-Post: Donald Kent Douglas, Lia® — And Wrong, Every Time...

Keywords: BTDT Files REPSAC3 blogurl:

A reply to Donald Douglas' most recent serving of specious allegations.

At the outset, let me just say that anytime someone says "no need to even read the whole thing" when the thing in question discusses something you care about, that's a sure sign to pay closer attention to the words the guy is speaking, watch to make sure his hands stay out of your pockets, and definitely "read the whole thing" ...with a dictionary and a good lawyer, if the thing in question is important enough to you.

In this case, I can completely understand it if you don't give a damn about Donald Douglas, repsac3, these specious allegations, or anything either of us have ever written on the subject. If they weren't about me, I probably would've stopped following this saga myself by now, and I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out that no one bothers to read Donald's screeds about me or my rebuttals of Dr. Douglas' screeds about me except Donald and I. Even if you believe Donald is telling the complete truth (or that I am), and you support him (me) fully, the whole thing is just getting' old and stale...

So if that's where you're at; If you just couldn't give a flying purple fig about what Donald is accusing me of or about my rebuttals of his accusations, or you've already made up your mind, and don't wish to give any of it another thought, you're free to go, with my blessings... If you find something neat to read or do elsewhere, feel free to come on back and leave a link to it in the comments... The fact is, there's a whole lot that's better and more interesting than this--even root canal, and I wish I wasn't here talking about it, myself...

Now if you are still here and reading this, you must care enough about some aspect of the saga or of one of the participants in it to put yourself through it... So for you (and sure, I suppose there really could be one or two of you), here goes...

After reading through my recent rebuttal of his accusations, Donald obviously still doesn't get it. He's still making the exact same specious claims and accusations, and still not offering the slightest bit of proof for any of 'em...

For those not familiar, here's a partial list (the part that's germane to the post he was ostensibly replying to, that is... The racism stuff, while just as ridiculous and just as unsubstantiated, was more'n'likely added by Donald to flesh out his meager "on-topic" offering):

"stalking," "harassment," "hate," "workplace intimidation," "posting my college administration's contact information with directions to harass," "hosting commenters spiking the football after workplace contacts." He even borrows a term I've often used to describe his "ok for me, but not for thee" rationalizations, accusing me of "situational ethics," which I think is pretty funny...

As an aside, three quick examples of my using the term "situational ethics" in reference to Dr. Douglas, all from 2010:

1)"But this situational wishy-washy bullshit is just unbecoming and unmanly, and I urge you to let it go, for the sake of your reputation...",

2) "When you apply the same rules to everyone, friend and foe alike, THAT'S a standard of behavior. Whining when they did it to you, but then threatening to do it to sombody else... (Are you really going to make me get out the links in support of this, again?) That's situational ethics, Don. And situational ethics are not a core set of standards.",

3) "We're talking about having one set of standards for everyone, Donald. If I 'need' to release this info, then so does every other blogger with whom you interact. THAT's what one set of standards means... Having everyone held to the same set of laws, demands, statutes, standards... All measured with the same yardstick and weighed on the same scale... Not rules for the folks you like, and different rules for the ones you don't... THAT's situational ethics. That's moral weaseling... And that's what you're demanding."

Now search Dr Douglas' blog for the same term ever being used by him before the post I'm replying to today... Quick clue: You won't find any... I say that this is because he's playing "rubber/glue" with me like a 7 year old, and just aping back whatever I allege against him... (and as with the rest of his accusations I ask, where are his quotes or cites in support of the allegation that I engage in situational ethics? Nowhere, as usual.)... You may agree with me or you may not, but at least I show my work...)

Like I said the last time, I've never done any of it, and no matter how many times Donald Douglas repeats his off-the-wall accusations or asserts that they are "fully documented" (though strangely, never linked to, cited, or quoted verbatim by Dr. Douglas), that isn't going to change. All I can do is once again repeat what I said in the post to which Donald claims he was responding:

"I once again call on Donald Douglas to put up or shut up. Less tell and more show. If he believes I have done any of the things he regularly accuses me of, I demand that he offer evidence in support of his allegations, or admit that he has none.

Unless / until he escalates this situation (there are times when he seems to be threatening legal action, but I have not been contacted by anyone from his legal team or CA law enforcement, thus far...) I can do no more than put these facts out there, and demand that he address them with something--anything--of substance."

X-Post: Workplace Harassment - (btdt FAQ files)

(As long as Donald Douglas keeps repeating this ridiculous accusation, this post will likely be a work in progress. - repsac3, 5 August, 2011)

Let's start with a few simple facts:

I have never contacted Donald Douglas or anyone he loves, lives with, works for, worships with, or has anything to do with offline, for any reason.

I have never suggested that anyone else contact Donald Douglas or anyone else in his offline life for any reason, either.

I have never supported or defended anyone who has threatened to, or actually has contacted folks in Donald Douglas' life for making those threats or taking those actions.

While Donald Douglas often makes these and other claims (see growing list of links below), he has offered zero evidence that I have done any of those things myself, or played any part in encouraging or supporting those who have. (In fact, there are numerous posts and comments on several blogs where I have directly spoken out against contacting employers, spouses, preachers, teachers, siblings, neighbors, etc., about online issues. Here are some of them: 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16)

I cannot speculate as to why Donald Douglas continues to make these specious accusations, but I can say that they are wholly without merit, as evidenced by the fact that he offers no substantiation for any of his charges aside his own words. No quotes, no testimony from anyone saying I "made" (or "suggested", or "cajoled," or "svengalied" ) them into contacting Long Beach City College or into harassing Dr Douglas in any way.

In short, when Dr Douglas says I did any of these things, Dr. Douglas is lying.

The facts:
One guy, who wrote 6 American Nihilist posts in total, and authored his last one in August 2009, submitted one post here where he suggested that anyone who was offended by Dr Douglas' bigotry and lack of netiquette should contact the school where Donald works. In the same post, he provided the information to do so, which he found posted for all to see at the website of the college where Donald Douglas teaches. The information the one-time AmNi author repeated is posted at that same site to this very day.

I verbally objected to the post in the comment section at the time, but felt that the author was an adult who could and should make his own decisions and live with the consequences of his actions. I therefore did not censor his post or force the author to remove it. But I did continue to speak up against making such a threat or encouraging anyone to act on it... At least in part due to my disapproval of the post and of involving a blogger's workplace in online disagreements, the author resigned his American Nihilist authorship and left this blog behind. (He also removed my authorship at a group blog he was the owner of. He both removed himself here, and removed my authorship there, without discussing it with me until I wrote him to ask about it.)

Once he left, I did go in and censor the contact information out of the post. I did not remove it entirely, in part because I didn't feel right about messing with another blogger's post, and in part because there were so many links to and comments and posts discussing it that I believed it would look like I was trying to hide something if I were to make it disappear. (Had Dr Douglas not made such a stink about it, I probably would've just left it as it was, to be used as evidence of whatever it was a person wanted to try to convince others it proved...)

No one else who ever was or is currently an author at this blog has ever contacted anyone in Donald Douglas' offline world, threatened to contact anyone in Donald Douglas' offline world, spoken out in favor of contacting anyone in Donald Douglas' offline world, or supported the words and actions of those who have threatened to or actually contacted anyone in Donald Douglas' offline world.

Donald has never offered anything but his own words to suggest that anything in the previous sentence is untrue, and Dr. Douglas is lying when he alleges that anyone from this blog aside that one former author has done any of those things.

Yes, other bloggers have threatened to or actually contacted individuals at Long Beach City College to discuss the online antics of Donald Douglas.
Three of them wrote for right-of-center (libertarian, or moderate Republican) blogs. I had no contact with any of them before they threatened to contact or contacted LBCC, and none of them said anything beforehand, during, or since to suggest that I played any role in their actions.
The other two individuals are liberals, but they are not authors here, and as with the right-of-center folks, they have never said anything to suggest that I played any role in their actions, either.

Donald Douglas' repeated allegations and accusations about my having any role in what these individuals said or did, or that I have supported their actions as regards Donald Douglas and LBCC at any time before or since, are not borne out by any facts that Donald has offered. I am not anyone's "leader." I have no "henchmen." I believe that Donald Douglas knows his accusations are false, and that he is making them in an attempt to sully my reputation. As such, Donald Douglas' dishonest allegations may well be legally libelous.

Whatever their legal status, these allegations and accusations are certainly immoral, illogical, unsubstantiated, and obviously deceitful. That Donald Douglas continues to make them regardless, is evidence of the kind of man he has chosen to be.

I once again call on Donald Douglas to put up or shut up. Less tell and more show. If he believes I have done any of the things he regularly accuses me of, I demand that he offer evidence in support of his allegations, or admit that he has none.

Unless / until he escalates this situation (there are times when he seems to be threatening legal action, but I have not been contacted by anyone from his legal team or CA law enforcement, thus far...) I can do no more than put these facts out there, and demand that he address them with something--anything--of substance.

Following is some of the more eloquent verbiage I've posted on the subject over the years:

It's not that I don't understand where you're coming from, my eight-armed friend... It's just that I don't agree with your remedy.

To me, it doesn't matter whether Donald dared you, baited you, or even politely invited you to contact his Department Head and/or College President. It also doesn't matter to me that you told him you would.

What does matter to me is that this is not a college matter in any way, shape, or form. Had he threatened to harm one of his students or blow up the school, I'd be sending e-mails and making telephone calls right there with you. Even if he was making bigoted comments about his students or co-workers, I might give it some thought. But posting vile, bigoted, or even threatening things on your blog without permission doesn't merit workplace action in my book. (If you take the threats seriously, I'm all for legal action, involving the police and lawyers, however. And if he's coming to your blog often enough, perhaps you can report him to Google for stalking, or something.)

What a college professor (or a musician, or a cocoa-cola bottler, or a retail manager, etc.) does online has little bearing on what s/he does at his/her job. While I believe that the college ought to be paying attention to what their employees are saying & doing online--just as any "company" should, these days), I don't believe we citizens should be reporting each other to workplace authorities, especially for infractions we can't get legal authorities to do anything about... unless we believe that someone is in danger, anyway. (If you really believed he was a rapist, but didn't have legal proof, I'd support you informing the folks at the college, so that they could weigh your story and take whatever action they deemed necessary.)

While Donald is most certainly a creep, nothing you've described is anything his job can or should do anything about. Being an anti-social online troll isn't--and shouldn't be--something his boss has any control over. Posting inflammatory comments at your blog--or even inciting others to do the same--isn't a crime. It isn't against his college's code of ethics. And it isn't any of his boss' business.

I understand that you see things differently, and believe you are justified in continuing to contact Donald's school. I simply and respectfully disagree.

Until you can explain why the things Donald Douglas does online is the business of LBCC, or explain what you expect them to do about it, I don't see how my feelings and beliefs on the subject are going to change... ...though I'm glad that you value my opinion enough to try to persuade me... - American Henchmen: Donald Douglas - An Ethical "Push-me, Pull-you"

Saturday, July 24, 2010, 7:38 AM - American Power: Update on Blogging Anonymity and Blogging Ethics:
"American Nihilist, for example, exists for the sole purpose of attacking me personally with the most demented bile imaginable, and that blog has gotten more perverted over time, eventually devolving into a Satanic hate outlet for workplace intimidation and non-stop vicious personal diatribes. It's a hate blog. It exists for no other purpose but to spew invective and evil. And I've repeatedly challenged the authors to put or up shut up by posting their full personal identification and contact information, but they have not done so. And that's cowardly."

SATURDAY, JULY 24, 2010, 3:55 PM - What'd I Say?: Anonymous/Pseudononymous Blogging and Commenting: Cowardly?:
"Yes I run a blog where folks are mean to you, in some cases personally, rather than on point. I'd prefer that folks wouldn't do that, but I don't intend to substitute my blogging ethics for that of one of my fellow authors. While I may not personally like or agree with everything every author writes, I put a higher value on their ethical right to post according to their morals rather than mine, though I'm welcome to revisit that decision where circumstances (such as the writer who voluntarily resigned his authorship, and left the rest of us with a post containing ideas that no one felt comfortable defending) or the law are concerned. Further, I don't accept the notion that *every* writer at a group blog is responsible for the words or ideas that *any* writer posts. You have a problem with me, fine. But if I didn't write the post or comment with which you're taking issue, you're talking to the wrong guy. Authors and blog owners at other group blogs are free to make their own decisions as to how to handle such questions, and they certainly needn't agree with mine.

American Nihilist (blog) exists for the purpose of giving those who wish to avail themselves of it a place to respond to you, whether it be to a personal attack or an ideological difference of opinion. It's authorship and blogroll is entirely made up of folks you've picked a fight with on American Power. You can view it as a hate site or a personal attack on you if you like, but I maintain that a good number of posted responses deal primarily with issues you've raised on your blog."

February 26, 2011, 8:53 PM - American Henchmen: Guilty as charged.: Comment: repsac3 said... (A colloquy on the subject between Donald and I, beginning with this comment at this post.)
"And Donald... I have never posted your workplace information or suggested that anyone contact your employers about anything. You can repeat it as many times as you want, but you're lying every time you do. (Prove me wrong. Post a link to the time and place I supposedly did this.) The fact is, every bit of the information that "David" posted is publicly available on your employer's website to this very day. At best, he cut and pasted what he found.

Yes, I do think he was wrong to encourage folks to contact them regarding things unrelated to your job that you'd posted on your blog and on his, which (contrary to your repeated accusations), is exactly what I said from day one.

Your beef (such as it is), is that I didn't censor his post.

I believe in free speech, and that bloggers are big boys and girls who can stand up and defend their own posts. Therefore, I did not censor his post or demand that he remove it from the blog.

I'm sorry that principle offends you, but Donald, this isn't your blog. You can certainly start your own group blog and censor your fellow bloggers' posts whenever and however you wish. I chose to treat the bloggers here as adults, and to allow them to say whatever they felt was appropriate--and to defend their posts. Anyone interested can cruise on back to 2009 when this all happened and verify for themselves that what I'm saying is true. So Professor Douglas, you can either learn to cope, or keep whining. Either way, the choice is yours."

Who was that guy (or "those guys"--the writer did say "we," not "I") in Norway "stockpiling and cache weapons, ammunition, and equipment" back in 2007? Was it Anders Breivik, or will it be the next rightwing extremist(s) who commit(s) violence somewhere in Europe?
