I received this tweet from Bob Belvedere (whose The Camp of the Saints is a blog I follow). Bob was one of the folks who participated in the Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day back in May, 2012, and he has been a steady source of encouragement over the past couple of years.
Bob hits the mark dead center when he refers to the Team Kimberlin nonsense as “Banal Evil.” Just today, I’ve received comments here at Hogewash! that fit that description. I reproduced one of them in an earlier post. Others that I’ve received in the last 24 hours make scandalous references to my wife and late mother. Another makes offensive reference to my religious beliefs. Another implies that I am impotent. The latest simply calls me “Pussy.” I got a better grade of insults thrown at me during recess in the sixth grade.
Yep, banal and evil pretty well sums up these bozos.
As I said at the beginning: You’re welcome, Bob.
And Hojotoho! Hojotoho! Heiaha! Heiaha!
UPDATE—Not 20 minutes after this post went up, a particularly puerile comment came in. This brings up a couple of points. First, one wonders what sort of life the commenter has if he’s sitting around refreshing this site in his browser. Second, it highlights the desperation that he must feel when his only response can be sophomoric insult rather than facts and reason.
