Yes, I will keep doing this until I get bored with it.
Today's post, by Kerodin, the great convicted conman himself, is titled PROGRESSIVES ALWAYS END UP MASS MURDERING THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS.
And then he lists some of the genocidal tyrants in history, like Hitler and Stalin. However, he doesn't mention the slaughter of aboriginals in the States, perhaps because it wasn't run by progressives-collectivists-socialists-communists when they did that. (He doesn't mention the slaughter of aboriginals by any other countries, either, possibly because we weren't progressives-collectivists-socialists-communists when we did that, either.)
Do arguments comparing Obama to Hitler convince anyone other than the people who already believe that sort of thing anyway?
He states that Franklin Roosevelt put thousands of American citizens in concentration camps. Roosevelt did put people of Japanese descent in internment camps during World War II. I wonder why he didn't add those additional facts. Maybe he had a feeling that his potential targets wouldn't really care about the wartime abuse of "immigrants?"
And why is he going on about that stuff on a site that is supposed to be dedicated to building the medieval city? All he wants are people who already think like him, and surely there are 7,000 families worth of those people in America. Why is he trying to change the minds of people who don't already think like that?
He keeps going on about how worthless those who don't share his views are. He talks about ignoring them. But he can't ignore them. He keeps trying to put them down. And the people he's trying to insult have no respect for him. So it's pretty sad. But entertaining.
Another thing I find interesting: He's explaining why the badges they're selling are as expensive as they are. They're $20 apiece, but I have no idea what such things should cost, and I wouldn't have thought one way or the other about it if he hadn't written about it. A customer had asked why they were so high in price. This is the explanation:
"All of our III Gear is a revenue source for the 527, our Advocacy group that we use to buy our radio and other media buys, expand the III Brand, grow our audience, et cetera."
The money isn't going to the building of the city: It's going to advertising about the city. Or the company. (Pretty much the same thing.) But he's been bragging about all the people who have been contacting him because of the national attention, how those who tried to bring him down just increased the numbers his message has reached. And again, they want only 7,000 families. How much advertising do they need?
How much do you want to bet that the people who were buying this gear thought the money was going directly to building the city?
How many more times do you think he's going to be providing rationalisations for taking money from people?
He's also blaming UPS for delays in the delivery of stuff people have paid for.
Not a promising start.
This is hilarious:
I don't know what to say to this one. It looks like he's rooting for Christopher Dorner. I really hope that's just my disgust for this man tainting my objectivity.
How can people be daft enough to fall for this?
I have a bunch of theories.
They can believe that President Obama is a secret Muslim who was born in Kenya and stole both the 2008 and 2012 elections, and that he plans to ban all guns in America, everywhere and forever. I have no trouble whatsoever believing that they're gullible enough to fall for this, because it builds directly on those other things as a foundation.
Yet they ignore election shenanigans in Florida and Ohio when Dubya was elected, not to mention the gerrymandering of districts to the point that Democrats received a million more votes than Republicans, yet the House is still controlled by the latter.
And don't forget George Soros is behind it all! Just ignore the Koch brothers, and Sheldon Addleston, and ...
What I love is they call Obama a socialist, yet the stock market is doing much better under him than Dubya.
