You're going to love this, I promise. Having only hours ago described Blogging Tory Kate McMillan as "Canada's most pathologically dishonest blogger," she ever so conveniently proves my point by being, well, pathologically dishonest.
Right Wing News has a piece up on the abuse that is regularly levelled at female bloggers in the US.
For an insight into the phenomenon, check out the comments at Right Girl. (Language warning).
"Witch", "bitch", "c*nt". "You need to get laid."
Ooooooh ... strong and nasty language, indeed ... except for the fact that you will search in vain for a single one of those snippets anywhere in the comments section of that article being used as an insult against GotR. Go ahead, see for yourself.
"Witch?" Not there.
"Bitch?" Not there.
"You need to get laid?" Sort of there, but only as a theoretical accusation allegedly from one Kathy Shaidle, and having nothing whatsoever to do with any of the commenters.
And the dreaded "c" word? Not used by me or anyone else as an insult at that article, and only appearing because it's being quoted from somewhere else, almost entirely by GotR herself, including when she (falsely) accuses me of once having an entire blog post category by that name.
Like I said ... they simply lie. All the time. Relentlessly, over and over, again and again. It's what they do.
AW, THAT'S SO CUTE ... Right-wing blogger Mike Brock also links to Kate's rampant dishonesty. I wonder if Mike even cares that Kate's lying. I'm guessing probably not. After all, he's a conservative. It kind of goes with the territory, doesn't it?
JUST CHECKING ... nope, Mike is still blissfully unconcerned that he's promoting an article of Kate's that's full of easily refuted lies. What a shame Mike isn't a Blogging Tory -- he'd feel right at home.
