‘Right Wing Bloggers’ – Oooh, Scary…

Over at the Community Care Blogs (which I frequent from time to time, purely for entertainment purposes), a blogger posts on the new menace sweeping the UK – people who don’t think like they should:
Apparently former soviet leader Yuri Andropov thought personal computers would be the end of socialism and the number of right wing bloggers seems to bear that out.
Oh noes!! The right wing bloggers are coming, comrades!!

But the lefties have a cunning plan to foil this blogosphere domination:
Community Care has also started its own political blog Outside Left, which as the title suggests is not right wing. Blogger Mike would love people to get involved and comment.
So far, ‘blogger Mike’ is going to be disappointed, since there’s no more comments on it than on the main blog...

In the comments to the article, one of their tiny population of commenters is struggling with a few basic concepts, asking:
As for influencing academic research, I personally, think it compromises the entire position. Why can't academics be noble but struggling idealists?!?
Because they need to eat, perhaps….?

If right-wing bloggers are all as stupid as you, no one has anything to fear. Congratulations, you're the Daily Mail, having assumed human form.

Say, anyone know why people keep mistaking social workers for agenda-driven loons ?

Now, has Total Twat finally figured out how to use the 'comment' box at last, or is caitlin a newbie who just sounds pretty one-note similar...?

"Say, anyone know why people keep mistaking social workers for agenda-driven loons ?"

It's a puzzler, for sure... ;)

Maybe you're a troll magnet.

"Maybe you're a troll magnet."

Could be. Once you let one in, it tells all its friends. Like rats...

Then you have to start with the old vermin control.

Yet again (and again and again and again, rather sadly) you fail to pick up on this simple notion of explaining yourself.

From your writing its clear your repeat behaviour shows no sign of evolution. Funny that init ?

All you ever do is have fun at other people's expense without saying how you might make your "valuable" contribution to the United Kingdom.

From what I see at the moment it's bloody pretty minimal, self-promoting, offensive and very up itself.

Oh I know, maybe you'd ask some RWA's (look it up) or probably Dubya to come over and give us a few lessons in the promotion of world leadership and the cause of freedom for the individual.

That'll be freedom as in

F is for Freedom,

Its what Britain is all about;

If you cant afford your dinner,

Then you're free to go without.


Caitlin is right. You are the Daily Mail

You need spoonfeeding...?
