    ...that if one attempts satire, one has to accept the fact that there are people whose rigid minds won't have the required flexibility to comprehend it.

    I suppose it's like caviar.  To some who have the palate for it, it's a delicacy.  To others, it's just gooey fish egg jelly.

      Per JVolvo's comment...

      Stop having respect for people's intelligence.
      Write down to the stupid.

      Got it.

        condescending asshole.  There are tons of shades of gray here - so much more than just fans and flamers.  Your tone is not winning you readership.  

        I say that because in the past you've kvetched in your intros 'maybe this will get some attention' as if we are too stupid to recognize your genius.  Hint: hundreds of diaries are posted each day.  Great ones/great topics can slide right off the list with little notice.  DK is that big.

        I know you've done great work: exposing the racist and anti-govt fucks hating on Obama.  You dug into the spider web of who was behind the fake Occupy WI webpage that tried to punk petition gatherers.  The Operation Burn Notice assholes.  I've appreciated your tenacity when grappling with RW fuckheads.

        And I submit, respectfully, that the accumulated battles with those virulent haters has impacted your outlook.

        Not everyone who disagrees with you here = those RW fuckheads.  This is a very diverse community.  The LGBT, anti-misogyny and anti-violence folks have taught us white guys a ton about respecting different pov/life experiences and how we white guys can be oblivious to what is harmful/disrespectful of (any) minority's experiences.

        Please take this to heart.  There are tons of great people here.  Don't fight with them.  Keep your skills aimed at the RW sociopaths who want to destroy our country.

        To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. - Theodore Roosevelt 1918

        •  Jvolvo, this is not Junior High School, so... (0+ / 0-)

          ...enough of the finger-wagging sanctimony.

          I don't believe I equated the disagreers with RW fuckheads. And my shot here was aimed straight at the heart of those RW sociopaths you mention, but members of the Perpetually Offended Liberal League jumped in front of the arrow and took the shot instead.

          You know nothing about the battles I've fought over the years, for decades before there WAS an Internet, against hate in all its forms.  And now, fighting what my own body is doing to me.  Don't presume to know anything about me that I have not shared with you.  You know nothing of my "outlook" or what shapes it.

          All I have left to fight with are words.  And, gosh durn it, I will fight on my terms.  Those who don't like it are not my enemies.  I am clear as to who my enemies are.  Those who disagree with me have the right to do so.  I would rather not have to deal with stupid people who think that I am saying it's OK for men to ass rape their wives or anyone else, for that matter.  Only a stupid person could read what I wrote and come away with that.  I will blame it on a temporary flare up of "teh stoopid" which happens to us all.

          But I can do without the huffing and puffing and gasping and choking and the righteous outrage and garment rending of the people who should be on my side because I am CERTAINLY on THEIRS!

          As I shall always be.  Even when I write things that may be beyond their ken, I will write.

          It's all I got left.
