HIBERNATION

I have been in fail mode with respect to timely posting this week. Last evening I did something I do approximately once per decade: fall asleep at 8 PM and sleep for 12 hours. This conflicts with my 11:00-Midnight writing routine. Sorry. I blame the pollen.

In place of an actual post, check out this column by Dan McLaughlin and tell me how much (using any scale you find appropriate to the question) it needs to be FJMed.

    "Access Denied" = 100% needs to be FJMed! 5 out of a 4 point scale…

    It does not need to be FJM'ed.

    Stupidity needs to be FJM'ed. This is so bad, it needs to be ignored.

    [How much? It needs to be FJM'ed as much as Todd Palin needs to reduce the size of his library.]

    Far more interesting than the fact that there are morons around who just don't get racism is the revelation that it takes Ed only one hour to write his posts. It would take me all day to write a third as well! If that well!

    I begin the day with appropriate humility and look forward to tomorrow.

    The reality is that the Trayvon Martin case is being pushed by left-wing organizations eager to provide a backdrop of racial strife to this year’s elections – a dangerous tactic, given how frequently popular agitation over these kinds of racially divisive stories have led to riots that leave people dead or homeless and local businesses and jobs destroyed. And that while activists on both sides of the aisle often try to get big media to focus on particular crime stories that advance some national political or cultural narrative, the media is much more apt to be receptive to such campaigns by the left than the right.

    No, no need to FJM this at.

    Move right along. Nothing to see here.

    Holy fucking shit.

    5/5 on the Giles scale.

    Mocking the Stupid is more fun. But I've seen a lot of this crap from smirking pseudo-intellectual White Nationalists in the last few days and it deserves to be mocked at length, with the appropriate venom. All the "reasoned" responses in the world are wasted on it.

    PS: Don't feel guilty. That Georgia pollen is a motherfucker.

    I serously hope that that is some sort of weak and tasteless attempt at irony. If not, I am sympathetic to his wife's needs. Surely he has a tiny, tiny tallywhacker.

    The fact that he says the media aren't covering the more important Mexican drug cartel story and then provides a laundry list of news stories that cover the Mexican drug cartel means this assclown needs to be FJMed in a very big way! That's not even counting all the idiotic tie-ins to the presidential election.

    On a 1 to 10 scale: 11

    Thanks for the link. I used to think that the problem here was that some crazy guy chased down an unarmed teenager, shot him dead for no reason, and was not arrested for it. But that was me being naive. I've now learned that the REAL injustice here is how the national media sometimes doesn't cover OTHER crimes, which apparently makes middle-class white conservative armchair jockeys cry. Well, I've been set straight and now I know who the true victims in the Martin case are: The true victims are always the people who (a) weren't shot and killed, (b) didn't have a family member shot and killed, (c) didn't have to stand by helplessly while no one did anything to help them, but (d) feel personally hurt by an imagined media bias. I can imagine how much greater their pain must be compared to the Martin family.

    Seriously, do we have to set up a 24-hour televised news station which does nothing but detail every single violent crime that happens anywhere in North America? Would that get these assholes to shut up? It might be worth it.

    For me, the measurement determining whether a piece needs FJMing is the number of half-uttered outbursts I make while reading it. If the number reaches 8, we have a winner. So let's check the totals…"What the–", "What does that have to do with–", "That's completely–", "Oh for the love of–", "What the fu–", "Is this a goddamned–", "You are clinically–", and "Waste basket–I need the wa–".

    And then I got to the second paragraph.

    So yes, FJM that muther.

    This one goes to 11..on the scale for Asshole of the Year…

    Excuse me. I need to switch over to Fox and get the latest on the Natalie Holloway case.

    I scoffed quite a lot. I did feel the need, though, to set that against the sense of enervation that settled over me at the thought of spending time fisking it. Same specious arguments and half-assed media analysis. Same whining. Same ludicrous entitlement, straw-mannery, and absence of pith. Same Hail Mary* introduction of abortion as some kind of contrapuntal narrative of liberal bad faith.

    My warm regard for you compels me to encourage you to take a pass.

    *I have used your sports metaphor incorrectly, yes?

    Not worth an FJM. However, worth having his address, place of work, license plate number, and other personal details posted on the Internet.

    Then have: I don't see why everyone's so worked up over a spic hunting down and killing a nig.

    Spray painted on his car, house, work place….

    I used to work with Dan McLaughlin – he's a turd, and not worth your valuable time.
