I love calling out the intellectual dishonesty and general fuckery of the “True Believers” on the right.
Caught one of their “luminaries” in his own tangled web. Bear in mind that this guy claims to have four degrees, including a PhD. Makes one wonder how a person with so much in the way of supposed education could possibly get himself tied up in such mental knots, you know?
In any case, here’s screen shot one…the “setup” if you will…Sawber, making his initial claim…

His point seems pretty clear and straightforward, does it not? And then, the big finish:

As soon as the spin cycle began, I made it a point to capture the images in the event he tried to delete his own posts. The twisting and spinning that followed has been equally amusing. I love watching the “Deep Thinkerers” on the right squirm…

    Hey, Velociryx. It’s NoComment from TDB. I was searching for names I recognized from TDB and I found you here. I was looking for TDB refugees to find out where everyone went after the comment board closed. Do you know what happened and/or if the group has gathered somewhere?

  • Velociryx

    Hey! Sadly, I dunno…it totally sucks that TDB closed down their comment board…hopefully they’ll reopen it again soon…kinda miss that place! :)

    So glad to be in touch. Thanks so much for your reply. I agree It totally stinks they just shut down the TDB board with no notice. I’m having withdrawal! I’ve gone to the Huffington Post and the NY Times to post but it’s not the same – people just make comments; there isn’t any real interaction or discussion. If you find a board that’s good, please let me know. I’ll check back here. You’re one of my favorite posters. Be good to know where you end up. Let’s hope they bring it back.

    FYI, I noticed a couple people have landed on Salon.com. I just joined. Hope to see you there.

  • Velociryx

    ahhh, excellent – I’ll head that way. Was thinking of doing a “read there, talk here” section here to bring back some of the old crowd…intriguing idea, or no?

    Hey Velociryx. I think that’s an excellent idea. I don’t have anyone’s contact info; it was just luck I found you. I’m certain a lot of the old Daily Beast crowd is looking for a new home. Salon.com is decent – it uses a similar posting format to TDB and it’s more discussion oriented than the other sites I’ve visited. If you find something better, let me know and I’ll follow you. I wrote to TDB and asked them to reopen comments but I doubt they will anytime soon.
