  •  False equivalence does suck (13+ / 0-)

    but it doesn't really matter. In this case, ek was doing a plenty good job of making himself look like a huge friggin' jerk, even quite effectively pointing out exactly one of the more major frustrations of those doing the boycotting, all by his lonesome. So whether the really long, super angry, personally insulting comment was "equivalent" or not on some supposed moral scale, it was totally unnecessary.

    Many, many potential reactions are justified that are nonetheless still not helpful to actually addressing the injustice.

    Note that I'm not talking about waiting politely for justice. I'm talking about not losing sight of what matters in actually getting there.
