Bonus Quote Of The Day – Right Wing Worries

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Blogging, Conservatives, Quotes, Republicans

“I just wish everyone would take a step back from this extremist brink. It can’t lead anywhere good. At best, it will bring the right-wing blogosphere into disrepute, and at the worst it could lead to violence if you encourage these real nuts out there.”
- Charles Johnson, founder and lead blogger at Little Green Footballs

Gee, sounds familiar…

And what’s the response from his blogosphere brethren?

Attack, attack, attack.

Ugh.

    Amen, Charles.

    And Pam? For shame. When you have an entire paragraph emphasized, you’ve truly sailed into kossack territory. When everything is super…

    Who the hell is Pam? At any rate, I have a hard time treating blogs this far off the beam as anything other than entertainment. Personally I prefer lot’s of movies both new and old, and occasionally great comedy from Chappelle, Ron White, Louis Black…… It seems more rationale to court the absurd in it’s proper setting.

  4. Simon Says:

    Pam has nearly three times as many readers as this blog, Terence (an average of 17,841 visitors per day, as opposed to Donklephant’s 2,572), and an average of 17,841 more visitors per day than come to read your blog. So you might want to be careful about throwing around claims about who is “far off the beam.”

    (Quantity isn’t quality, of course, but the mainstream isn’t defined by quality. As George Carlin put it, the reason it’s called the mainstream is that it’s very shallow. At any rate, Pam’s blog isn’t always to my taste, but it’s a popular and entertaining view from the right of the party. She just happens to be off-base on this one; Johnson is right, and far less of a problem for the party than the stoking crew led by Beck.)

    It would be to my utter shame that someone like this should find a home among people I feel I associated with. If she takes Beck and Coulter seriously or thinks they are in any way a positive part of the debate, she and her readers are the problem.

    It is time that the GOP starts doing what they ask of the Muslim community, condemn the ignorant and the stokers of hate and stop having them as featured speakers at their fundraisers.

    Oh and Graham Maby and Tal Wilkenfeld to you all

    I don’t have a blog – no time – so your comparison is correct on that note. I guess I just don’t appreciate the work being done by so many popular blogs – there’s no accounting for taste I guess. In the immortal words of George Carlin when asked why Americans don’t or won’t realize their Civil Liberties are being eroded little by little:

    “People don’t believe that because everybody wants a jet ski. It’s all about the pursuit of goods and acquisition. This country has become a nation of people selling each other cheeseburgers and sneakers. It’s an appalling degradation. They call it the American Dream. Why? Because you have to be asleep to believe in it.”

    Bass players – but I still wish people would stop throwing around names I have to look up. Jack Johnson …. back at ya.
