The Other McCain as a "white supremacist website," which of course, it is not.
Crazy Charley (see him in drag in the photo on the left) has become as mad as the hatter in "Alice in Wonderland." Increasingly withdrawn from the real world, Crazy Charley has surrounded himself with a shrinking circle of ass-kissing sycophants. He and his blog have been often parodied as Hitler hiding in his bunker while Russian shells destroy Berlin above him, surrounded by his last loyal Generals who vow to die with him. It is an apt comparison.
At his pathetic blog, Little Green Footballs, Charley doesn't allow unregistered visitors to comment on his unending paranoid rants, thereby adding a reality check to someone who desperately needs one. Charley can't debate because the facts are not on his side, he can't form a coherent argument and because he has a very thin skin and cannot bear any disagreement or criticism.
Charley will not be disabused of his delusions and refuses to take his Thorazine (3), with the result that the Mad Hatter of the Blogosphere continues to rant, insult, libel and slime anyone who is more successful at blogging than he is, namely, Michele Malkin and Robert Stacy McCain. Lately he has a new ass-kissing toadie in the guise of one Barrett Brown. Ain't that cute, but as Jack Nicholson once quipped, "Go sell crazy someplace else -- we're all stocked up here."
Barrett Brown has criticized McCain for once using the name of a "slave-holding Confederate general" as a pseudonym while making posts to various websites. Gee, you mean like Nathan Bedford Forrest? My great grandpappy rode with him and I'm proud of it! Terrible, terrible.
Perhaps McCain should have used "George Washington" as a pseudonym instead. Oh wait. Washington was a slave owner. Oh I know! Thomas Jefferson! No, he owned slaves too. How about Ulysses S. Grant? No, even the great Yankee general reportedly owned a couple his wife used as maids (and who reportedly stated that if he "thought the Civil War was to end slavery, he would resign [his] commission and offer his sword to the other side.") William Penn? Profligate slave owner. I could go on, but you get the idea.
As a matter of fact, with the exception of John Jay and a few others, most of the Founding Fathers were either slave owners, slave brokers or otherwise believed in the institution. Maybe McCain could have called himself "Abraham Lincoln." Well, Lincoln never owned slaves, thought the institution was wicked and immoral, but he was definitely a white supremacist who wanted to deport all American blacks somewhere outside the United States. So if he used Abraham Lincoln as his pseudonym, Barrett Brown could then say that "McCain used the name of a well-known white supremacist as a pseudonym, thereby proving by association that McCain is himself a white supremacist." A biased author (like Brown) can slant it many ways, depending on the factors he wants to attribute to his target.
Well I can tell you, Barrett, that Stacy McCain does not agree with slavery and, like me, like Robert E. Lee, and like most other modern-day Confederate descendants, think it was evil. However, men of history lived in other times, circumstances and social mores. It is asinine to judge these people by 21st century standards and 145 years of hindsight. We can, however, legitimately admire these men for the attributes still admired in modern times: leadership, courage, patriotism, sacrifice, dedication and honor.
Did it ever occur to you that there are legitimate things to admire in these men of history regardless of slavery? No, because you are an idiot who is ignorant of history. And your attempt to twist this legitimate admiration into modern-day "racism" or "white supremacy" will only get you a well-kicked ass in blog debates.
Notes referenced above:
(1) Charley's website is as much of a "transvestite website" as R.S. McCain's is a "white supremacist website." If Charley can brazenly lie like a dog, it is only fair to give him a taste of his own medicine.
(2) I do not know for certain whether CJ tries on pantyhose or not, but then he doesn't know that McCain is a "white supremacist" or not. My observation bears the same empirical proof offered by crazy Charley about McCain's alleged "racism," which is nothing more than my fanciful imagination.
(3) I do not know for sure if CJ has a prescription for Thorazine, but he should certainly ask his shrink for one, ASAP.
