Typical of blogs that don't want discussion, only agreement.

It was a matter of time and not entirely unexpected. The baboon board lynch mob has finally arrived and are baying for blood. There were a couple of dozen in the queue before me, and my number finally came up. So many lynchings, so little time…

I think I am supposed to be surprised, spontaneously void my bowels and fall prostrate in terror. In fact, I briefly noted that yes, I did receive their cleverness, and really, they should tell someone who cares. I have otherwise been bound down by too much pre-crassmass nonsense to even consider any more.

The baboon blogs have in the meantime multiplied. Some are from turds like Greg Laden and Rorschach (or whatever else the chickenshit1 calls himself) who you wouldn’t piss on if they were on fire, let alone respond to. The latter is the baboon board’s Chief Censor and led an abortive spurious complaint letter campaign to National Geographic to censor and/or shut down Abbie Smith and ERV. This time around he’s promising to alert the Federal Police. Good-o. Love to hear how you get on. (more…)

(and a big thank you from Wikileaks to freefromthoughtblogs)

Wikileaks and Julian Assange have been awarded the 2011 Walkley Award for Outstanding Contribution to Journalism. Not as globally renowned as the Pulitzers, they are nevertheless the Australian equivalent and still an award that retains some degree of credibility and integrity (contra MTV awards or Oscars).

On one level, this is fantastic. The public, fickle as always and with the attention span of gnats, have allowed Assange to largely become the forgotten man – whilst the attacks to destroy him have in no way abated. Journalists are at least making a token effort to acknowledge the man. Any journalist that remembers their code of ethics and standards and actually still practices genuine journalism knows full well that the act of doing their job as the public’s watchdog could land them in a situation similar to Assange’s at any time. In many parts of the world, it is still one of the most dangerous occupations. (more…)

Tell the new, new atheism to fuck off.

This is an extended rumination on some Freethought literature I have mentioned previously. It contains a lot of very pertinent, and in my opinion, critical points that address the why and the how of godlessness, skepticism and Freethought running off the rails as disastrously as they have over the past few years.

These are all points aimed squarely at PZ Myers as he is the prime corrupter of the movement, but it applies equally to all of the other alpha-baboons that have set up shop at the Crisis Factory that is bent on making criminals and pariahs out of anyone that raises a voice in dissent. (more…)

After looking at this too much, it deserves its own post –

You can’t fake an expression that shallow.

The man who poisoned American politics beyond repair, and the man that is poisoning secularism beyond repair.

Yes, it’s nice to blow off steam whining here, ERV, TOA or ‘tardbook etc. but it achieves nothing. Introducing –

The true imbecility of The Naked Emperor, the Pharyngudroid baboon troop and the miscellaneous other demagogue dung merchants that comprise freefromthoughtblogs needs to be catalogued in an ordered and constructive manner for the world to see.

There is still a nonsense impression too many people have that any information bearing the PZ Myers brand is somehow “authoritative”. Haha. Anyone with integrity or dignity needs to get over that real fast, for their own sake. (more…)

“There are no problems, only solutions.” — John Lennon

Women that deviate from orthodox ideology pose a particular conundrum for the Watsonistas. Their denied sexism leaks. They are simply incapable of dealing with women in the manner that they deal with men – open abuse and ridicule of genitalia and sexual inadequacy – so there is an equality fail. No matter, where there’s a will, there’s a way.

Greg Laden (artist's impression)

Here is a nice example of what gets done to female traitors, in this case by the baboon tag team of The Naked Emperor and Mr. Mackey.

A female community member posted an item on ‘tardbook (login required) after committing an unpeakable heresy – independently verifying some facts about the Elevatorgate fairy tale. After seeing an absurd claim that Irish hotel rooms don’t even have coffee1 (amongst other idiocies) on one of the baboon board’s affiliate blogs get swallowed unquestioningly, she actually checked. And, of course, found the absurdity to be what it was – absurd.

I would be lying if I said the response was surprising. If anything, it merely highlights the lather-rinse-repeat routine that the baboons rely on in situations where they have no conventional, civilised dialectic rebuttal (ie. all of the time). They attacked the person in a manner designed to damage – (more…)

“If you’re a preacher, you talk for a living, so even if you don’t make sense, you learn to make nonsense eloquently.Andrew Young [link]

“It is a far, far better thing to have a firm anchor in nonsense than to put out on the troubled seas of thought.” John Kenneth Galbraith [link]

These two quotes sit nicely side by side. The Galbraith one is particularly juicy, and richly sardonic, taken from his early work, The Affluent Society and refers to his theory of The Dependence Effect in economics which can be summarised roughly as –

…the final focus on production in economics amongst all else; alongside the observation that maximisation of production is sought chiefly not for the goods it produces, but to obtain full employment. The Dependence Effect further undermines our focus on production, claiming that the demand for this new production is created by the production itself(more…)
