Conservapedia and the moron that sail in her never fail to amaze me. Especially when it comes to their interactions with other people. We all know that editors are there to be worked, until they step out of line, or dare take a step back and breathe, “What the fuck?” when Andy or one of his minions brings forth a new dose of crazy, in which case that are immediately verboten. With no leave to appeal. Then we have Andy et al crowing about liberal hate speech, whilst they gleefully dance on every grave they can lay their slimy paws on – be it Elizabeth Edwards dying of cancer (or Geraldine Ferraro for that matter), or school kids who commit suicide, or – even better – shoot other kids.
Actually, on that last bit, is it really such a leap of the imagination to picture Andrew Schalfly, Brian Macdonald, Terry Hurlbut and John Patti, protesting the funeral of another dead schoolchild, holding up signs saying “God hates public schools!”?
Andy worries about liberal hate speech, and that vile things would be said if he announced Terry Koeckritz’s death – also please note that besides John Patti, not a single fellow sysop has said a word, even privately – but has no problem if he, or his hand-picked goons, spout such crap themselves. Way to stay classy guys.
And then there’s Robert Smith (no, he’s a gazillion times less cool than the dude from The Cure), who doesn’t want to be left of of the ‘Whoa! There’s a time a place, dickhead!” club. Not content with sniffing out invisible communists (and Maoists) in the Obama government, or acting like a prize moron, incapable of telling the truth, or following a thread, (don’t believe me? Have a read of his laughable defence of John Patti’s “use the military to remove the Pres!” screed I referred to a few posts ago) he also has to go on and show what a world class prick he is.
Long-time RW editor, PalMD, made a post the RW’s Saloon Bar, mentioning an illness in the family. As could be expected, this was followed by an outpouring of well-wishes from the assembled community. Because that’s what people do right?
Well, not if you’re a Conservapedia administrator, it seems. Clearly unused to dealing with people other than as chattel, the best Rob could come up with was:
Hey PalMD! How’s it going? still playing video games or vandalizing websites in the back room while patients wait patiently in the waiting room? Oh yah, and you need to get some new magazines out there while they’re waiting, too.
I wish I was kidding. This in response to somebody asking for support for an unwell family member.
When called out on his utter crassness, Rob isn’t even apologetic, instead falling back on the lame old argument that 4 years ago PalMD inserted information which Conservapedia didn’t like (in others it was factually correct), thus making him a vandal in CP’s eyes.
Seriously, how unhinged do you have to be to have that kind of twisted world view, that you mock somebody with a seriously ill family member over a non-event 4 years ago?
Still, it’s always good to see Conservapedia’s roving fuck-head displaying good conservative and Christian values wherever he goes.
