Rat fight! Ted Rall and the Daily Kos
Posted by DNW on 2014/03/20
Sometimes a rat fight can be rather amusing. Just try not to let them know you’re watching, much less laughing.
Now I admit that I’ve inadvertently ruffled rat fur in the past. I did it on another blog by making – years after the fact – what were by any rational standards temperate and measured remarks about the object lessons available from that infamous Greensboro, North Carolina gunfight which took place between Neo-Nazi’s looking for revenge and self-professed Maoist revolutionary types trolling for a second-round public confrontation with them.
There were those among that blog’s readers who were especially outraged that I looked askance at the speechifying activities of one of the ideology drunk Maoist participants; as her husband lay on the ground with the top of his head shot off.
Quivering with indignation they fumed – or pretended to fume – that I was dancing in the blood of fellow Americans. That’s “fellow” and “Americans” in quotes of course, since we are talking here about Nazi-types on the one hand, and totalitarian disciples of a mass murdering Marxist dictator on the other. Listening to self-described leftists wave the American flag over the bodies of its enemies while hysterically shouting about human decency was pretty much worth the price of admission alone.
Anyway, those who are unfamiliar with that particular historical event – the gunfight not the years later blog eruption – can research it all for themselves, or make a beginning by clicking on this link.
However the rat fight I have in mind here, is not between two species of rat, but a more all in the lefty-family type of brawl. And thus far there have been no known fatalities, though there has been the usual obscene speechifying.
Will rat blood be shed by rat? I doubt it. We can probably rest easy on that point.
Gee … what more can one reasonably say?
