Help, help! Bill Schmalfeldt is being repressed! Or, rather, not.
Never, ever has the management of Billy Sez advocated that violence is the answer. The response to speech you don’t like is more speech, nothing more, nothing less. Somehow I’ve just never thought that this was necessary to say, but in this day and age, words are interpreted as being the same as physical violence in direct contradiction to logic by certain groups.
It’s obvious that Bill Schmalfeldt is trying to convince people that other, unknown people, are going to physically harm him. That blogs like this one, Hogewash, Thinking Man’s Zombie, and Sonoran Conservative just want people to seek Bill out and physically harm him.
If you want to see a blogger that truly tries to incite violence against people, you have to go no further than HERE.
I say that unless someone is dragging @Popehat and Frey OUT OF THEIR OFFICES and BREAKING THEIR KNEES WITH BASEBALL BATS because of this, then they have nothing to worry about.
And let it NOT be said that the Liberal Grouch advocates anyone using baseball bats to break the kneecaps of either Mr. White or Mr. Frey! Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, if you have it in your mind that if Nadia Naffe were a friend of yours and some scumbag attorney used the powers of his office to dig up and use private information against her, whoever did it (or defends him) DESERVES to have their knees broken with baseball bats, let me dissuade you of that notion here and now.
That is not what baseball bats were made for.
For one thing, a wooden bat could break if it were used in such a reckless and lawless fashion. And if you think you can get around that by using an aluminum bat, guess again. An aluminum bat (unless it is reinforced with a lead center) would likely bend under such pressure. Now, I hear the crafty ones out there saying, “Yeah? Well, what if I drill out the center of a WOODEN baseball bat, fill IT with lead, cover the tip with Plastic Wood? Wouldn’t THAT do the job?”
Again, I say, you are wasting your time with all that effort. Tire irons are much more readily available.
Perhaps Bill Schmalfeldt should ask the writer of that article just what he or she was thinking while indulging in that bit of apophasis that really was just a veiled attempt at encouraging violence against someone. Perhaps he would learn what true incitement was and take a lesson from it.
Oh wait. It was deleted from the Internet. Was someone worried about how it might look? Too bad the Internet is forever. Oopsie Poopsie.
