Bill Schmalfeldt is allll about making rules for other people. He tells folks what they can’t post on Hogewash!, Thinking Man’s Zombie, and View from NL all the time. He’s done this for years all over the internet, claiming some things are libelous, other things are defamatory, and yet still other things are just “off limits.” He demands that comments that offend the arbitrary rules he makes be taken down quite frequently, threatening doxxing, legal action or, increasingly, hinting at physical retribution. This last little bit is always couched with a wink and a “how could you expect a man with stage Eleventy!1!1 Parkinson’s Disease who relies on a walker to be able to do this” smile. As for what he posts, he often makes the distinction that he talks “about” people instead of “to” people, and he expresses “opinion” as opposed to asserting “false facts as if they were true.”
Let’s assume, solely for the sake of argument, that Bill’s distinctions are valid and that he follows the rules himself that he sets for others (Bill, am I wrong? It’s either that or you are claiming the rules don’t apply to you, right?). So, by extension, we can use what Bill says in his comments as a guide for what it is safe to say about him on the Interwebz. After all, if he can say these things about us without fear of consequences, it must correspondingly be okay for us to do the same, amirite?
Here’s a single day’s worth (May 19, 2015) of most of the things Bill said about various folks in the Zombie/Lickspittle horde taken from his Twitter feed. As a twist, though, to give Bill a sense of what it is to be like on the receiving end, each word or phrase he used appears on each image that just happens to bear the words “Bill Schmalfeldt is a…” Coincidence is a merciless bitch, no? Anyway, it is assumed Bill will have no complaints – after all, all he wants us to do is play by the same rules as he does, right?
Remember Bill. There can’t be two sets of rules, one for me and one for thee. So don’t squeal too loudly when you see this. It ruins your façade of manhood and shows you for the little bitch you are.
