Right-wing schizophrenia, as it were.

How odd. Apparently, the same Canadian wanks who were utterly and monumentally uninterested in the plight of a nine-year-old Canadian boy being held in appalling conditions in a Texas detention centre are now -- suddenly -- totally devastated by the situation involving an Afghani boy who they'd never heard of before.

I hear there's medication for that, you know.

Ooooh! Matt called you a prick!
The level of discourse takes another dive...
Of course, Matt didn't refute your point at all. Name calling, I guess, was his 'refutation'.

I do believe he called you a prick!

Wow! That's almost like winning an award. Well done, CC. You obviously struck a nerve.

Well, I began by politely debating the blogger's premises, and was insulted by another commentator.

I replied in kind, but with an argument and now I meet with this response:

"You've been banned for being a douchebag and/or trolling in the comments section. If you feel this is an error, contact the site administrator. This is likely a temporary measure, so when you're unblocked behave yourself and contribute your opinions (regardless of your position) in a constructive manner to the thread or not at all. If you want to be a douchebag, start your own blog and be the biggest damn douchbag you can be."

I'll live with being banished from "uninformed nobody"'s blog, but I certainly hope that the person who called me a "gullible oaf" is meeting with the same treatment.

Otherwise that would be rank hypocrisy.

The other story that seems to be inciting their outrage is some German 'animal rights' person saying it would have been better for the baby polar bear being hand raised in a German zoo to have been put down instead of subjected to icky human intervention.

Nevermind other animal protectionists and zoos are going in reaction. My Googling of the story found rightwing site after rightwing site using the reported quote from the fellow. Something about unhinged lefties I guess.
