Have you noticed that Althouse’s “curated, artisanal” comments invariably kiss her ass?
I mean, I understand why she shut comments down. The censors and cancellation mobs were coming for her. She was also obviously fed up with the many personal feuds, and with being told she’s full of shit (and she really is in a lot of ways).
Althouse’s talent was framing an issue for discussion. Her obsession with identify politics is just plain stupid, since it’s based on her lifelong lying that American women are subordinated and persecuted. She never got Trump because she really is a neurasthenic pedant. She never got that he was what was holding the censors at bay. He was too rough and hetero for her fag hag tastes.
Without the comments, her blog is now irrelevant and boring. Rather than turn it into a marathon of ass kissing, she might as well shut it down."
This has all happened before as I am sure if you are reading here you are already aware. The big dust up that brought about the genesis of this blog has been swept under the rug. I believe many of the posts and comments that went into the explosion have been deleted. Even on this blog by Lem. I recently went back in time and noticed a lot of stuff missing. Of course that was then and this is now. We don't delete troublesome posts here anymore. If you say just know it will go on your permeant record.
I hope Shouting Thomas and other refugees who want a place to express themselves will join us here in this experiment of free speech and angry old man get off of my lawn speechifying.
Gentleman .....start your ire.
