Harry Taylor Meets President Bush

Lame

Idiot Moron

Leftard Fucktard Fuckwit

Knuckledragger Retard Inbred

Halfwit Dummy Jerk

Bottom feeder

Asshole

I was beginning to worry that everyone in the United States had lost the ability to argue coherently without flinging insults at those they disagree with.

But then I came across this civilised man, Harry Taylor, who last year stood up in front of George W Bush, and expressed his disagreement without hurling a single insult or personal comment.

In fairness to Bush, he returned the courtesy by hearing Mr Taylor out without insult or abuse, and for that I would commend him. The people who posted their insults on this site could learn a lot about civilised discourse by watching this video.

Mr Taylor became a bit of an unlikely hero after this incident, and if you want to add your comment to his web site, you can do it here.

Bush Killed all the Lehrers

I thought the New England racist might enjoy this one. Here’s the great Tom Lehrer, a civilised man who taught mathematics in a university not too far from our little Bushbuddy.

Where do Irish-Americans Stand on This Sort of Thing?

How would you react if somebody wrote to you about the illiterate, ignorant genetic traits of Africans, or Jews?

I wrote a disparaging post about President Bush and his policies a few days ago and of course I got the usual deluge of criticism.

Not a problem. I’m a grown-up now and I don’t cry or run away.

But then I received this from one of my critics, Effinayright, in West Newbury, Massachussetts:

————————–

You really do think the sun shines from your fundament, donââ€â„¢t you. Or is a case of you spending WAAAAY too much time at the village shabeenâ….

Bottom line: Bock, an anonymous twit, does not define or validate US national security concerns. We went to war for OUR reasons, which are not subject to YOUR veto or your limp-wristed waving them off as inconsquential..

And of COURSE Irelandââ€â„¢s never waged an ââ€Å“aggressiveâ” war on foreign soil : for centuries it was filled with bog-hoppers ruled by D-list British ââ€Å“noblesâ” who found it quite easy to cow an illiterate and ignorant populace, genetic traits Bock obviously carries to this day.

But we also note your little dodge with that ââ€Å“foreign soilâ” bit: I suppose youââ€â„¢ve forgotten that recent unpleasantness with the North, which certainly sees itself as ââ€Å“foreignâ” to Eire. Quaere: Do you still burn votive candles in front of Gerry Adamsââ€â„¢ portrait?

————————–

What do you reckon guys? Suppose this American had referred to the illiterate, ignorant genetic traits of Africans, or Jews? How would that go down?

Is this kind of racial slur a normal way to conduct debate in the United States?

Is this what Americans think of the Irish?

I realise that my original post was aimed at Bush, and it was intended to make people laugh, but anyone who knows this site will be familiar with the kind of thing that goes on here.

I was a bit disappointed with all the taunts: “you are a knuckle-dragger”, “you are an idiot”. I had hoped for a better standard from Americans, but I can live with that. As I said, I’m a grown-up, and playground insults don’t hurt me.

However, I thought that comment from Effinayright revealed a great deal about the mindset behind the insult.

It suggested Ivy-League disdain and contempt for cultures he considers inferior.

And if he can be so dismissive of my culture, which is strong in America and unafraid of his kind, imagine how he would treat Iraqis at the wrong end of his gun.

Effinayright continues to shout abuse but he’ll receive no platform here, unless he apologises unreservedly for his pathetic racial insults. Is it a New England thing?

Maybe his hero, Mark Steyn, will give him space to fume.

UPDATE 1

Then we had the splendid Nomennovum, who started out by claiming to be Irish-American. When challenged on his spelling of an Irish-language phrase, here’s his reply:

You spell it your way, Iââ€â„¢ll spell it mine. Go look it up. Itââ€â„¢s like Arabic, dude. The Irish, the illiterates that they were, did not invent the Roman alphabet. So, they hardly know how to spell in their native tongue.

Interesting comment from a true Irish-American, wouldn’t you say?  Someone with a lot of pride in his culture.

You Gotta Love Those Americans

Apparently, a post of mine was linked to by somebody called Mark Steyn.

I don’t know who the hell Mark Steyn is. Maybe he’s somebody popular in America, but I never heard of him. On the other hand, so what? Americans never heard of the rest of the world, so that seems to make it fairly even, in my opinion.

Anyhow, that isn’t what I wanted to say.

What I wanted to say was that Mr Steyn’s link resulted in the busiest traffic Bock has ever had, and I thought it was only fair to thank the lemmings people who flooded my site with abusive comments.

And so, I thought maybe a song would be appropriate, so here’s a fellow American to serenade them.

Thanks again guys. Just one thing so we can be clear: you’re not planning to to bring me peace and democracy any time soon, are you?

No?

Good. That’s all right then.

Saddam Killed Nelson Mandela

Even I wouldn’t believe Bush could be this stupid if I hadn’t heard it for myself.

Here’s Dubya in his own words:

“I heard somebody say, Where’s Mandela?’ Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.”

You don’t believe me?

OK. I wouldn’t believe me either without evidence, so here you go. Listen to President GW Bush in his own words.


——————–
UPDATE: I received a couple of insightful replies to this.

You are an idiot, says Jimmy the Dhimmi of Tufts University, in his thoughtful academic way.

Dom helpfully explains that Bush really meant Saddam had killed everybody of Mandela’s character in Iraq. Isn’t it a good thing Dom is on hand to interpret Dubya for the rest of us?

He also explains that this was a joke story, though I’m not quite clear if he means the video is a forgery.

————————

UPDATE 2: I’m overwhelmed by the love coming from America for this post. Some guy by the name of Steyn linked here and it’s resulted in every Bush sycophant on the face of the planet spamming me. Hey, no problem! Everyone’s welcome here. I was so touched by the love that I felt the need to post a thank-you HERE

————————

UPDATE 3: What’s really strange is, nobody defines exactly what I wrote that they disagree with. It might be a good idea if somebody would quote the offending words. Perhaps Mr Steyn would oblige.
———————–

UPDATE 4

It’s been an interesting experiment and I think the reaction exposed something they didn’t intend to reveal (perhaps even to themselves).

It seems to me that they were most angered by what was in my mind at the time of posting, rather than what was actually posted.

They didn’t want me to take down the post, but rather to recant and be remorseful for my “error”.

At times, it was closer to a mediaeval heretic hunt than a 21st century discourse, and it goes to show how far America has moved away from freedom of thought, never mind freedom of speech.

Don’t forget, these are the same people who would lecture you about defending freedom, peace and democracy.

So Bush’s Brain has deserted him. Hmmm. What a shame.

Here’s Martyn Turner’s take on it, from the Irish Times.

Yuk. Yuk. Yuk.
