It seems to be human nature to have a dual set of reactions when we see somebody who is an unmitigated jerk. On the one hand, we want to either just smash them or make them go away. On the other, we may sometimes feel a measure of pity for them. That maybe if they just saw how they come off to others, maybe they would change their ways and become better socialized. And then maybe they wouldn’t be a jerk! Win-win for everyone!
Don’t worry Zombie Horde members, if you have never, or perhaps only had that second set of emotions for a very short while when it comes to Bill Schmalfeldt.
We’re not the only ones to think that he is incapable of being anything other than the jerk that he is. We are only the latest in a long line of those who feel the same way.
Observe the reactions of his fellow Progressives. You know, the ones who felt that those diaries on Daily Kos and his responses in the comments section when he was criticized showed Bill for who he really was.
This poster gave Bill some constructive criticism on his diaries, as well as the “update” that Bill posted on the original diary, calling out one of the more vocal posters who didn’t like reading about rape without a proper warning. Perhaps because she had been raped herself.
There was one Kossack who started out really liking Bill and what he wrote about. However when his normal colors shone through? Well, let’s just say the bloom was off the rose.
All this kerfluffle was over a diary where he describes the marital anal rape of a woman and was getting bad responses from those who found it in poor taste if not downright horrible and awfully triggering of their own personal experiences with rape. They happened to belong to a group that was known as the trees. So Bill, in his infinite wisdom, made a comment that other posters picked up on as mocking those who had been raped and were appropriately shocked and enraged.
This poster, however, hit the nail squarely upon its head.
So remember, Zombies. It isn’t just the RWNJs that don’t like the way Bill does things and says things and insults and demeans people and their experiences. It’s also those whom he has proclaimed as his very own tribe.
Yeah. About that….
This isn’t a left vs right issue, and it never ever has been. It’s a Bill Schmalfeldt issue. A leopard cannot change it’s spots, and neither can he.
