An open letter to Fareed Zakaria from the People's Cube

Zakaria wrote or said something along the lines of taking glee in the demise of the white male. I think. One of the writers at the Cube satirizing that statement extending it by writing about the demise of white women. Zakaria not understanding the Cube is a satire site complained on his CNN show he is being bullied by extreme conservatives.

Oleg Atbashian, the owner of the People's Cube breaks out funny mode and gets real to challenge Zakaria directly, by reversing Zakaria's charges, challenging his position, his status, his place in the world, his reason for living, his existence. He does lay it on thickly bringing up past but hardly forgotten grievances for illustration to upturn Zakaria like an hourglass. Both arguments are from immigrant perspective; one soft and fluffy, intellectual, and guiding and the other hard and heavy as chiseled marble.

It's fun.

And the comments are immediate. They look like part of the article. The commenters there really do play along with the satirical tone of the place save for this unique item. They add their own.

The first commenter: I must say, this morning when I heard Fareed refer to TPC as a "minor news site" I was terribly offended and had to be hospitalized for a number of hours. Fortunately there was no permanent brain damage or anything so I can resume spewing hate tomorrow morning. (according to my doctor) I look forward to reading your upcoming letter to the sensitive Mr. Zakaria when my health returns in the spring.

"Progressives" have trolled, ridiculed, satirized, maligned, insulted, bullied, and lied about conservatives since the inception of the Internet. But once they see the signs of oncoming traffic, they cry and run to mommy...

Yep.

"... all of which led you to conclude that someone must create a mechanism in social media "to distinguish between fact and falsehood." And since that someone can only be the government, your statement can only be understood as a vague call for the government censorship of the Internet."


Yep.

I love the People's Cube. Take progressive totalitarianism and shove it up their collective rears -- with delicious sarcasm and wit, using their own sad-tit rules against them.

Poor Fareed, his leftism has left him with such a thin skin that if the wind blew, he'd called it an extremist racist troll that offends him. Fucking plagiarist idiot.

I especially like their T-shirts--especially the "MARXISM" ones with Groucho's visage above in Obama totalitarian-style block print, lol

You would think that a guy in public life with an unusual name would have an unlisted phone number and that he wouldn't allow his children to answer the phone. Well, now he knows better so he's learned a valuable lesson. We can't pay sufficient honor to the courage and integrity of this fine man.
