I have been receiving a lot of hate in the last few days. First following the repeal of the carbon tax – our progressive friends are hurting, having invested so much of their emotional energy in that policy. Then the post yesterday where I put up Ronald Reagan’s very forceful and inspiring response to the downing of KAL 007. I was challenged on twitter and later in the thread:
What a shocking and pathetic person you are Davidson. And holding a job in education, to boot.
The least problem with this is the dumb “relativity”. There is no comparison. Reagan’s words were for the Soviet State, which had just murdered people at a period when they were falling apart.
Today’s issues have nothing to do with ideology, Statism or anything else. Putin’s behaviour is political. Awful, but merely, pathetically political.
But what really boils my blood is your feeding of the grubpot. When I see comments that go to the race – the race – of the president of the US. At this, of all times!
People have died. This is not an entertainment for the student union.
Wow – anger management issues there.
All this points to the fact that our lefty friends are unused to dealing with defeat and disappointment. Lashing out and tantrums become the order of the day.
Mind you – the “lamentation of their women” that I’ve been receiving have come from individuals who otherwise appear to be male.
