Couldn’t find his own ass with both hands and an ass map

Via Brittney who apparently bought this bullshit, S-townMike writes:

I’ve been waiting to see if the conserva-tive bloggers would start promoting shooting local looters on the heels of last week’s tornadoes as they did in the wake of Hurricane Katrina last year, but the silence on the right with regard to “shoot first and let God sort ’em out” has been deafening in this case. Last year we could not get them to shut up their calls for mowing kids down over a pair of Nikes. But now the logic does not seem to be applicable when looters are stealing chunks of houses. But wouldn’t shooting looters rather than arresting them send a much more powerful message to other potential looters (many of whom were no doubt snarling the traffic southward down Gallatin Road all the way to Briley Parkway this past weekend)? So, what’s with the silence? I won’t say that the difference in conservative outcry has anything to do with the difference in the race of the looters we are seeing on television from those we saw in New Orleans, but the rightwing seems a lot less frenzied at these white-boy looters.

It’s a veritable cornucopia of logical leaps and fallacies. See, we gun-toting right-wingers were out there advocating shooting children over sneakers. And, of course, it’s all because those kids were black. Mind you, Mikey here doesn’t link to any blogger advocating shooting little black boys over shoes and that’s likely because he couldn’t find any respectable blogger who did that. No one I know of advocated for that but rather advocated that the residents of NO defend their own lives and livelihood since civil order completely broke down, not random shooting of looters. Also, he can’t even link a news source about the local looting but posts some screen cap that references one person arrested for burglary instead. I have never heard of any post-tornado looting and the only incident I know of is the one from the screen capture Mikey-poo posted. I conclude that there was probably an isolated event or two and not widespread taking of property and that there weren’t roving bands of armed gangs that warranted defending yourself from. And, of course, in Tennessee it doesn’t exactly look like the law enforcement community broke down the way it did in New Orleans.

And, of course, there is the utter ridiculousness that silence on the issue is an endorsement of a particular position. Had such looting been as widespread, had civil order broken down, and had the incidents been reported widely in the press, you would have seen folks comment on this issue. And they, like me, would have said that folks need to defend themselves from looters. But the fact is, there is no issue here and he made it up to score cheap political points. His non-analysis of a non-event is about as useful as a cock-flavored lollipop.

So, Mikey-poo, let’s see some respectable bloggers advocating killing them all and letting God sort them out. Or a respectable blogger advocating killing kids over Nikes. Otherwise, you’re a liar. And all this from a guy who claims to have a Ph.D. in ethics. Obviously, its the study of and not the application.

    HEY!
    Mebbe Mike likes the idea of a cock-flavored lolipop??
    Let’s try not to over-generalize and stereo-type here, mmk?

    Is that the same Brittney who wet herself over the fact that some classified information related to Iraq but unrelated to Valerie Plame was declassified by the President. She seems to be an excitable girl.

    I was merely passing it along, as is my job. Personally, I think the two situations are entirely different, though I never, ever thought those who condoned picking off people in NO were in the right.

  4. SayUncle Says:

    I don’t think asking “Why Not Now?” is passing it along. Just sayin’. I’m not getting all B-Ho on you and you can link what you like but I took the tone of the post as endorsing said view.

    There was more than a single incident, but not very many. Less than five, I’d say. Our station chose not to cover it, since it was pretty isolated and we didn’t have any video (I think).

    Well, to be fair to myself, I often take the overall them of someone else’s post and turn it into a title. (Pretty lazy, eh?) Here’s an example of a time I took the theme of someone’s post as the title, though I certainly didn’t endorse the post (or the title by proxy):

    shooting looters is fun and educational for the entire family.

    Of course TN has fairly strong castle doctirne IF the intruder is in your house. Of course if your house is spread out over 20 acres AND people are stealing parts of it, you are probably well within the law to kill everyliving thing within said 20 acres.

  8. Marc Says:

    Having a business in Gallatin I want to say thanks for spanking Dr. Ethics. There were incidences of looting of course but, as far as I can tell, the cops weren’t among the looters and we didn’t develop roving armed gangs. Of course the cops didn’t go door to door confiscating firearms either.

    Had such looting been as widespread, had civil order broken down, and had the incidents been reported widely in the press, you would have seen folks comment on this issue.

    Had such looting been widespread and law and order had broken down (as in New Orleans), I would have more than likely driven up to Galatin (which is only about 15 minutes from where I live) to help homeowners protect their property with my rifle.

    Isn’t that what the volunteer state is all about? Picking up your rifle and going to help out where you’re needed? 🙂

    I’m afraid I have to issue you a HARP citation (Humorous Analogy Repetition Penalty). Only 16 days separate this post from your most recent use of the the “cock-flavored lollipop” analogy. As good as it may be – the analogy, that it is, not the confection – Blogging Etiquette guideline #241.5/e calls for a full 30-day cool-down period between such posts.

  11. SayUncle Says:

    Bruce,

    Yeah, yeah. Over 8k posts it’s hard not to repeat yourself. It’s not the only analogy that’s a repeat.

    Though, cock-flavored lollipop is new to me.

    😉

  12. Daniel Watkins Says:

    I love your sense of COMMON sense, it is sorely lacking in the blog/article you posted about!

    Good for you for presenting a little truth!

  13. Bruce Says:

    Over 8k posts its hard not to repeat yourself.

    I know the feeling. There are only so many ways by which I can quantify the doucheheadedness of our mayor here in Boston.

    What’s lazy is your disengenious excuse for showing your bias brittney.

  15. brittney Says:

    Say it with me now, DocB: I am biased. No one argues that. Why you continue to rail on about my bias is beyond me. I don’t refute it.

  16. DocB Says:

    Because you hide behind a media logo Brittney.

  17. brittney Says:

    I’m not hiding crap, guy. Tell me, please, what am I hiding? Who am I trying to fool? You won’t come out and say it, you just keep following me around the web to insult me. Let’s discuss it: Why and how am I hiding?

    […] Say Uncle spanks S-townMike, a Nashvillian with a blog. S-townMike is disappointed that “Conservative Bloggers” didn’t “start promoting shooting local looters on the heels of last week’s tornadoes as they did in the wake of Hurricane Katrina last year” without evidence of such promotion during Katrina. […]

  19. DocB Says:

    Insult *you* dear brittney? Puhleeze. You seem to have done a superb job of that over at NiT towards others who don’t agree with your viewpoint.

    What you are hiding is the original intent of NiT – to highlight and moderate what NASHVILLE is talking about – not what Brittney has to say about what Nashville is talking about. You’ve created your own “talk show” and hidden behind the WKRN logo in doing it. Put your “disclaimer” on the front page already and stop hiding your bias.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
