When Hippies Attack
After reading the comments on my last post (and damn, I've gotten more trackbacks in the last week than in the whole year plus I've been doing this, I think), when I read this story, I had to post it.
So Ann Coulter's doing a speech/q&a at UT Austin, oddly enough at the LBJ Library, and according to Poor Mojo (linked above), she's having every crevice of her being licked and kissed and fondled (metaphorically) by the sycophants who think she's actually got a brain. So Poor Mojo asks a very reasonable question:
She had just said something about gay marriage, the typical rightwing bullshit spiel that is still convincing people that the Bible is really the Constitution. Knowing that taking the time to say something insightful, specific, or even slightly critical would get me a lame comeback and a ticket back to my seat, I realized that the only way to win this battle was to fight fire with fire. Or bullshit with bullshit. So, as reported in yesterday's Texan, I fired:
"You say that you believe in the sanctity of marriage," said Ajai Raj, an English sophomore. "How do you feel about marriages where the man does nothing but fuck his wife up the ass?"
He defends his actions thusly:
From the beginning I was yelling obscenities along with my friends, roaring at Ms. Coulter's right-wing bullshit festival the way no one else had the balls to. Mr. Sampath writes in his article that (and this is my take) the protestors were told to be good all along. They were told to sit in the back and hold their signs and leave quietly. No wonder hippies get such a bad rap nowadays; protestors today might as well be ornaments on the Rightmobile. When I want someone to know I'm pissed off, I'm going to throw down and give them a good shit-ruining. I wanted to show Ms. Coulter that people are down if she wants to hold a circle-jerk, but we're not gonna do it her way. Not me, at least.
To which I say again, Fucking A.
Now, this isn't the rhetorical style I'd use on, say C-SPAN, but in a discussion with Ann Coulter, I'd say it's right at her level. Same goes for a discussion with Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Tom Effing DeLay, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, and about ninety percent of the other morons who pass themselves off as public conservatives in this country. Poor Mojo, you keep on stirring the shit. I got your back.
