Of anonymity, blazing cats and howling hypocrisy.


Apparently, Blogging Tory "Blazing Cat Fur" is none other than Mr. Five Feet of Shrieking Racist, one Arnie Lemaire. Let us now document the douchebagitude.

First, Lemaire gets all weepy thusly:

Have I felt it unethical to blog anonymously? - yes the issue has been of concern to me.

So our first revelation is that Mr. Lemaire is an idiot, since there's nothing whatsoever unethical about blogging anonymously, and I see no reason for him to apologize for it, but that's when the douchebagitude starts, as Lemaire's sidebar reads:

In Canada, saying the wrong thing even in jest can drag you through Star Chamber tribunals and commissions without the benefit of due process, can bankrupt you, destroy your career and your family, result in lifetime bans on free speech and expression (of the Gospel, no less) and ultimately even lead to imprisonment.

And yet, curiously, we have the Missus, who openly admits:

A commenter at BCF is threatening to file a Section 13 complaint against me.

Finally!!

I've been TRYING to get a "hate speech" complaint for years now, by purposefully saying politically incorrect things about every ethnic group, including my own, on this blog.

I'm thinking that it would be nice if Mr. and Mrs. Blazing Stupid Racist could get their stories straight. Seriously, it's hard to whinge on about the horrific trampling of free expression in Canada when you can't get busted for that even when you're trying.

Or am I the only person who noticed that logical disconnect?

CORRECTION: I had thought BCF/Lemaire was a Blogging Tory. I stand corrected.

CONNED! One wonders if TVO's Steve Paikin is feeling ever so suckered since -- as Ti-Guy points out in the comments -- Lemaire was all over Paikin's blog, posting as BCF and supporting the little woman. If Paikin had any principles, he should at least have the class to be embarrassed.

Yeah, that'll happen.

What's especially funny is his attempt to claim some moral credit - "to take the wind out their sails" - by heroically "coming clean" - at 11:01 am, half an hour AFTER being busted.

We can but hope they are both past child-bearing age, and that layoffs at Imaginit Technologies force the happy couple to relocate to Imaginit's branch in Kuala Lumpur. His views on Islam are sure to be a huge hit in Malaysia.

M@ said...

It's not a matter of noticing the logical disconnect, CC. It's a matter of figuring out which of the myriad logical disconnects to focus on.

Such as where Balbulican notes in BCF's comments that Arnie decided to "take the wind out of their sails" by confirming his identity -- after he was outed.

Anyhow, the BCF disappearance watch should be counting down fairly quickly now.

Richard said...

Speaking of anonymity, our tracking of your ip addresses, CC, seems to have been fruitful.

Enjoy your weekend!

M@ said...

Hey Richard, I was just looking at your library of mostly in-copyright works on your lil' website, there... would it be too much effort for you to read the authors' names from the stolen work you've uploaded, just to make sure you're spelling them correctly?

Well, book-learnin' was never your strong suit, was it.

liberal supporter said...

Really, Ayatollah Evans? I suppose you are looking for a fresh victim today. Richard's preferred method of dealing with bloggers who he doesn't like

Richard said...

If you've a problem with the materials in my library M@, I suggest you notify the copyright holders asap...

M@ said...

I'm far more offended by your inability to spell than by your complete lack of ethics, Richard. Though I admit neither comes as a surprise.

Richard said...

Ok, M@, care to tell the group just exactly what was misspelled?

M@ said...

Geez, I gotta do your homework too? The author's name is "Salman Rushdie", dumbass, not "Solomon".

M@ said...

Ah, changed it already, have you? Without any acknowledgment of your error? How surprising. Nothing gives it away but the "LAST UPDATED" date at the bottom of the post.

You're so brave, Richard. So very brave.

Dickie Evans said: Speaking of anonymity, our tracking of your ip addresses, CC, seems to have been fruitful.

So what's your next move, Dickie? Are you planning to sexually harass, physically threaten and creepily stalk CC like you did Polly Jones? That should be interesting. And criminal, such as you are.

Balbulican said...

Richard has two shticks. He threatens to expose, or he threatens to sue. He has neither the smarts for the first nor the balls for the second.

Richard said...

Yeah M@, you just wasted 2 hours complaining about a previously corrected spelling error...

Your parents must be so proud...

M@ said...

And I note that in that huge stretch of time (where'd you come up with "2 hours", out of curiosity?), you've not managed to put an acknowledgment of your correction on your site.

Anyhow, keep up your brave stand against the forces of censorship. And literacy.

liberal supporter said...

where'd you come up with "2 hours", out of curiosity?
He's examining his site access logs, trying to figure out which IP number is you. All that UTC time conversion, and he forgot that daylight time has started so he's trying to fish enough details to complete targeting.

Ti-Guy said...

Another in the cabal of twits bites the dust. More or less.

This is so delicious...not that the thing was outed but that it's La Shaidle's "husband." That household must be love nest. I bet the sign on the door reads: "Mi casa es ARABS ARE RETARDS!"

bigcitylib said...

Its not Richard, its NAMBLA Dick. Could everyone please try to get that right?

Ti-Guy said...

Scary thought: Does anyone think "Blazing Cat Fur" is some sort of pet name ol' Five-Feet gave him for his expertise in a particular variety of oral stimulation?

jj said...

Hoho.

I always thought blazing cat shit was a female. Not a bad ruse -- hopefully the dumbed-down way he wrote in that blog was just part of the routine. If not, well, um err yeah, okay.

Hahahaha!

jj said...

Jebus, ti-guy, was that necessary? It's lunch time out here -- or was...

Mike said...

Ti-Guy...thank you, I now need to wash my eye out with an Antiphlogistine muscle rub...gah!

Ti-Guy said...

A thousand pardons, JJ. I should always remember to time shift when referring to wingnut congress.

I thought BCF was a woman too, but some wingnut insisted a while back that he was a man.

I really detest that blogger. He's the most compulsive gossip-monger in the entire cybersphere. Everywhere you go, there's Mr. Kathy Shaidle repeating some rumour or smear. He filled up TVO's The Agenda blog that addressed Shaidle's appearance on that show.

Somena Woman said...

JJ - Me too! It always sounded like he was a pissy little girl.

Somena Woman said...

"We can but hope they are both past child-bearing age"

The whole reason "the relapsed catholic" was unable to get a Catholic wedding was because Arnie has a previous marriage and Kathy did not want to have children.

Ti-Guy said...

Me too! It always sounded like he was a pissy little girl.

He has a habit of addressing other guys as "boys." It's pretty effeminate, but then most Conservative men are.

JABbering Stooge said...

one Arnie Lemaire

More like Arnie La Merde! *rimshot*

sooey said...

Why does it matter who it is? Frankly, his outter strikes me as the creepier of the two.

Enjoy your fleas.

Niles said...

Well, at least they took each other out of the gene pool. Doesn't change anything of course, anymore than it would if we knew who CC et al were. Ok, nothing changes for the non-predatory types.

Me, I like to pretend Lulu is Gritgirl. She's one a them strange artsy types.

sooey said...

Why do you assume his outter isn't a predatory type? Tracking down anonymous bloggers to out them on the Internet seems pretty obsessive to me.

Cherniak_WTF said...

I agree with you sooey - it's annoying when Connies do it and doubly embarrassing when Iggy right hand man does it...
Where is the outrage from the Liberals?

Ohh yea, they are too busy being hypocrites...

Ti-Guy said...

That idiot had it coming, sooey and CWTF. He'd have been the first to out either one of you for even less reason than Kinsella had.

Cut the self-righteouness...it's ruining my fun.

Cherniak_WTF said...

Ti-Guy, there are so many ways to poke fun at BCF... I'm sure you will find thousand of examples that are just as fun!

Ti-Guy said...

I'm sure you will find thousand of examples that are just as fun!

His blog is too stupid to read, let alone mock, but that's not the issue. He's the worst gossip I can think of. He even asserted once at BigCityLib's that CC was getting sued.

To find out that he's Shaidle's husband is just too perfect.

Cherniak_WTF said...

To find out that he's Shaidle's husband is just too perfect.
I wonder who has the bigger dick between them....

Somena Woman said...

Kathy has more balls.

That's for sure.

sooey said...

Okay, no more pussy footing around. You guys all suck ass on this topic. You remind me of cartoon hyenas - and usually only Blogging Tories remind me of cartoon hyenas. Get bent, stuffed, blow it out your ears.

Cherniak_WTF said...

sooey, do you have any anger issues per chance?

sooey said...

Yeah, yeah - now I'M the bad guy. ALL middle-aged women have anger issues, Cherniak_WTF. But, a mob's a mob. And I'm really disappointed in everybody right now. Not necessarily surprised, sadly, but disappointed.

I'm staying on my high horse until Easter, by the way. Then my Christ complex gives way to summer fun.

Sheena said...

I'm kinda with sooey on this one. You guys take this innerdnets shit way too seriously.

Ti-Guy said...

And you take nothing seriously, so it all balances out.

sooey said...

Get a room.

Cameron Campbell said...

Having to come to this kind of late..(and from the future... time zones are so tricky) I think that this outing may well be a bit different since BCF has a history of providing cover for FFoI from behind his screen of anonymity...

I think more than the outing is the shedenfreude involved in anything bad happening ot FFoI.

Sheena said...

Ask me about the GST on tampons, Ti-Guy. Go on. I dare you.

sooey said...

Good grief - I think the rationalizations for outting an anonymous blogger have officially become worse than the actual outting.

Ti-Guy said...

Ask me about the GST on tampons, Ti-Guy. Go on. I dare you.

I'm sure I witnessed the first instance of that contretemps, when you were still a sexually-undifferentiated zygote in your mother's womb.

Cameron Campbell said...

Whatever sooey, I honestly don't give a shit, I just think that the fact that FFoI mocking anonymous commentators as cowards while hubby is blogging anonymously is just funny.

sooey said...

Enh. She's not her husband. And she uses her real name.

I don't see any particular nobility in using your real name, personally. In fact, I think it's kind of a shitty way to treat your family.

Ti-Guy said...

Enh. She's not her husband. And she uses her real name.

*pfft* Hardly relevant. The two of them have been tag-teaming all over the Internet amplifying each other's messages to the extent that I consider them the same person.

In fact, we could even suspect they write each other's blog posts; it's not unheard of.
