Margaret Wente is a lazy, stupid person. As such, she has a great deal of animosity towards people who aren't lazy and stupid and so she writes column after column of lazy, stupid bullshit, mocking her betters and sucking-up to her enablers. (She is enabled by people for whom a debased political culture is the preferred environment for cheating and lying and general corruption.)
Wait a second? Did I say "she writes column after column"? That's incorrect. It turns out that Margaret Wente is so lazy and stupid that she can't even come up with fact-free, faulty arguments and snotty obnoxious drivel all on her own. It turns out, thanks to the efforts of Carol Wainio at Media Culpa, that stupid and lazy Margaret Wente is a serial plagiarist. To repeat: Margaret Wente is so lazy and stupid that rather than pulling bullshit arguments out of her own ass, she collects bits and pieces that other people pulled out of their own asses, smooshes them together with misappropriated facts she found elsewhere and connects them all with a few squirts of rancid diarrhea. [YOU KNOW THAT'S THE REASON YOU READ MY BLOG!!!!]
Now that Carol Wainio of Media Culpa has meticulously documented Wente's stupidity and laziness and plagiarism, Wente and some of her fellow travellers, are reacting in true “conservative” form. They're pretending that Wente is being victimized and they're slandering her accuser. Wente's own “apology” was par for the course for that lazy, entitled booze-hound. She's pretending that an attack on her plagiarism is an attack on her freedom of expression. She's pretending that a reader of her newsspaper who doesn't want to see blatant plagiarism and who writes in dutifully when a Globe & Mail columnist fails to meet the minimum standards for journalistic or literary integrity is an obsessive stalker. Maggie, Maggie, Maggie; if you didn't fail so often, Ms. Wainio wouldn't have so much to write about! If your employer had responded to Wainio's documentation of your failure by telling you to shape-up or ship-out, things wouldn't have turned out as they have. You and your employer brought this all down upon your heads and there's no sense in childishly and petulantly looking around in desperation for someone else to blame.
Consequences for one's own actions is supposedly a 'conservative” value. There's enough evidence now to see that that's complete bullshit. Wente's behaviour, both before and after her exposure as a lazy, corrupt, stupid plagiarist is just like so much other right-wing behaviour. It's all about the genuine decay of standards and the lack of accountability our elites have been indulging themselves in while everyone else has to sacrifice both their standard of living and their rights as human beings.
Stephen harper throws a temper-tantrum in front of the Governor General and he gets to defy the will of the majority of the people's representatives and avoid a vote of non-confidence. A democracy shredding precedent if ever there was one. He then gets found (unprecedentedly for any government in any Westminster-style Parliamentary system) to be in contempt of Parliament and he shrugs it off, arguing (falsely as he knows) that it was just a “politicized” decision arrived at by a committee dominated by partisan opposition politicians. This lie helps him to demonize his opponents in the eyes of his psychotic hard-core supporters and, it cheapens and debases the way everyone else regards Canada's federal parliament.Then he and his party blatantly attack the integrity of our electoral process and win a majority government via fraud. harper then stacks the oversight bodies with compliant hacks and, confident that hell will freeze over before his crimes will be exposed, rams through omnibus legislation hundreds of pages in length. And then .... and then .... and then .... his shit-head fan base calls US the victimizers! The whole thing has been a "leftard" conspiracy from the beginning! The "coup" the demand for documents from Afghanistan, the demand for cost estimates for the prisons and the fighter-jets, the contempt of Parliament motion and the accusations of election fraud, ALL OF IT, is all an evil left-wing conspiracy to deprive the poor lil' harpercons of their election victory! Jesus Christ but the hypocritical sense of entitlement with these people! And the complete inability to register how harper's tactics are totally undermining the integrity of the entire democratic process in our country! The evil and the whining!
Or take Rob "respect for taxpayers" Ford! The buffoon wants us to believe that in 10 years as a Toronto city councillor he can't be expected to have known that 10% of the city's $10 billion dollars wasn't just completely unnecessary "gravy" that could be cut with impunity. The dunce goes from thinking there was $700,000,000 in retirement parties, meeting sandwiches, espresso machines and such like that he could cut and then, when he becomes mayor, the dunce is calling for arbitrary 10% cuts for every department and muses about closing women's shelters! And, after this titanic display of cluelessness and incompetence, his supporters still proudly call themselves "Ford Nation" and whine, whine, god damn it they whine -fucking-whine about the lefty-media conspiracy against their hero.
The stupid fuck speaks to and votes on an issue in which he has a direct financial interest (refusal to pay a fine ordered by the city's integrity commission) and he thinks he did nothing wrong! It's a firing offense but he says he just wanted to "clear the air" before city council voted on the issue that he had a direct financial stake in! This could cost him his job, but everyone is saying: "Oh, do we really want to have another election?" What's this supposed to mean? "There are penalties, but if you're a right-wing white-male with a support base of borderline psychopathic morons who will feel enraged if the rules are imposed upon you, then you get a pass?" What sort of precedent is that?
This hypocritical whining, this entitled belief that consequences are for other people, this revolting behaviour runs from the highest to the lowest levels. From harper, down to Ford, down to Wente, down to the blog-o-sphere.
Check out online idiot and troll Patrick Ross. Outs a blogger. Accuses said blogger of being a stalker and a child molester, using the blogger's real name. Gets sued for slander and libel. Too stupid and lazy to show up in court. Receives a default judgement of guilty and an order to erase the libels from the internet and pay $85,000. Does neither. Goes into hiding. Dragged before a judge again and claims that he's suicidally depressed. (All the while our suicidally depressed 31-year old is hooting and hollering online about further imaginary "victories" over other internet opponents.) Right.
Or, check out this blast from the past. A guy gets suspended from his job for making "racial comments" and returns with a rifle and shoots and kills his boss and shoots and grievously injures a co-worker before killing himself. Okay? Got that?
Online, members of Canada's online right-wing imbecile community admit to knowing the guy. They say he was a nice guy. Such a shame that "political correctness" has run amok and driven innocent white guys to murder-suicide. The crushing weight of "political correctness" causes normal people to SNAP! under the constant pressure and harassment from uppity minorities and their useful idiot pinko allies. Such a shame.
This WHOLE THING is the fault of "liberals" and "leftards."
Then it turns out the guy has a swastika tattoo. Then it turns out his co-workers said he had a hot temper. Then it turns out he was posting sexually explicit, racially charged photos to the staff bulletin board to embarrass a non-white co-worker.
You know how an employer should have right to hire or fire anyone they choose? That principle is out the window when it affects one of their own.
Then it turns out that as a young man, Mr. Swastika stabbed an 18-year old to death over "a spilled beer and a ripped t-shirt."
Once this information is introduced, without skipping a fucking beat, the right-wing imbecile community blames namby-pamby "liberal" justice system for not locking up this menace to society for the rest of his natural life and allowing him to roam free and kill again.
It's always the "liberals" fault. They never do anything wrong. They should never be punished. Investigating them is always a witch-hunt. Or kangaroo courts worthy of Stalin. Or obsessive stalking and nit-picking. Or whatever I'm sick to fucking death of this bullshit.
