The Rise of the Blogging Brownshirts

with one comment

[UPDATE Below] 

The deadly Brownshirt Trolls are hard at work spreading their lying filth and disease-ridden innuendo wherever someone will let them. Blogger Brownshirts are self-defined by their actions that equate to their predecessors’ historical murderous conduct; THEY PERSONALLY ASSAULT PEOPLES’ CREDIBILITY, INTEGRITY, HONESTY AND LEGITIMACY to shut them up permanently.

On April  15, 2014, I included the following thoughts in another re-posted article. In view of the current situation manifesting in local blogs, it appears it needs to be reemphasized:

If you don’t know, Brownshirts are a collection of thugs who get quite annoyed at those who oppose” them, their judging, their propaganda, wanton personal hyperbolic attacks and their sick never-ending filthy lies they believe they have the god-given right to assault with anyone they want. In the real world of yesterday they were nothing more than a gang of bullying political murderers that paraded around in all their glorious self-righteous impunity. Today, none of them are of the 1% oligarchic plutocracy, but they serve them just the same as their modern-day “Brownshirts.”

When you censor and block dissenting commenters you reveal yourself as a sponsor, enabler and protector of these vicious Brownshirt Trolls.

So far I’ve identified five of blogs providing a safe-haven for two chapters of Brownshirts.

One of these blogs I’ve already identified and written about. The others, not wanting at this time to provide easy access or advertise in their behalf, I won’t post any links. Just know that when you see these pictures where you are.

If you read Eric Kirk and His Brownshirts – Called Out Again below, you can easily recognize the Brownshirt Trolls’ method of operation as Eric Kirk provides a perfect demonstration. First, should you choose to make a dissenting comment about the blog article or any of it’s affirming commentary, you will be challenged by the most personal and vilifying diatribe, hyperbole, innuendo, and out right lies such as: “Only an idiot or a crazy lunatic would say that or take that opinionated position.” Those kinds of filthy personal accusations are directed at the credibility and integrity of the person making the comment and NOT at the substance of the comment. But not so in Eric Kirk’s mind.

In his mind the opinion or idea – the position – is idiotic or crazy. But that is NOT what he said and wrote.

Should the hapless victim try to defend him or herself, they have just proved Kirk’s assertion (accusation) that they are either an idiot, crazy or both. Who but such people would conflate themselves with their “position” or worthless opinions rattling around in their empty heads and be “personally” offended? Score another one for the Brownshirts.

The problem when entering one of the Brownshirt Havens is you are stepping into a maze of quicksand totally in the dark. Most of the blogs never post any kind of guidelines or rules for making comments on their blogs. Those that do post something use them to discriminate against anyone they don’t like. Clearly, in the example above, Kirk’s personal accusation deviates from the blog article or it’s theme no matter what it might be. Yet, it is the defender that the rule, oftentimes unspoken “rule,” is used against should that person dare object to the personal off-theme attack.

In the world of blogging I would consider these thug, bullying Brownshirt’s antics incidental and irrelevant. Between the gossip-mongering, hatemongering, ridiculing, and lying about what people say, most of these blogs are nothing more than Troll Dens serving as home-bases for a Brownshirt Chapter. They possess NO credibility whatsoever.  I’ve learned over a lifetime that when these kinds of people raised their viperous heads and began spewing their dishonest vitriol and it was generally passed off by the decent folk as a fad — well lets just say, they lived to regret their amorphous judgments. Taken literally, the original Brownshirts, their political and general philosophy for existence; what guided and justified their actions as compared to these local Brownshirts, is a mere bullet.

Everything, all creation, starts with an idea. Once that idea becomes accepted commonplace it materializes into reality. These Blogger Brownshirts are only one bullet away from that reality.

[UPDATE :: Friday, May 23, 2014]

I’ve identified another Haven. This comment is another good example that the blog owner affirms and lets go unchallenged for blatant bald-faced lying. Brownshirts’ purpose is to SILENCE all dissenters – people that don’t bow down and worship the Plutocratic Oligarchy they support, empower and defend. I, frankly do NOT give a rat’s ass who agrees or does NOT agree with me.

I wonder….

There’s some guy out there who lately has taken to calling everyone who disagrees with him “Brown Shirts.” It would be very disappointing to find out Mr. Berg and this other fellow were one and the same.

For the record, no one is “evil” (except puppy abusers) and no one is a saint. We are just a bunch of folks trying to figure out the best way through this mess called life.

(Who made this scummy bastard God? “For the record” that statement is just his worthless opinion, and I do mean worthless. The fact that he presumes to speak for everyone belies his wannabe truth – what makes him illegitimate.)

When someone disagrees with us (Progressive, Regressive, Conservative, Liberal) it does not mean someone wants to get the trains going so they can ship their opponents to the Death Camps. It’s supposed to be a civil discussion, where consensus is reached and we make policy for ourselves we can all live with.

(No, in his case, they just put a bullet in your head – they censor you, they block you the moment you reject their lying false accusations and disease-ridden innuendo – see above. In that he mirrors his true father, and He is truly the Evil Father of the Lie. “Civility” died with the first lie. The Brownshirts turned it all into war.)

It starts with listening. [Emphasis Mine.]

The “self-appointed PC ayatollahs”

When I read Tim Martin’s thoughts about a particular class of Arcatans I was struck by how easily he could be writing about a slew of local blogs and their resident commenters.

051614_T_MartinHere’s a thought: What color’s the sky in your world, Arcata?

Posted:Sun May 18 01:18:36 MDT 2014 –  Times-Standard.com

I’ve never been accused of being a lackey for the Republican Party. To the contrary, I’ve been a loyal
supporter of Democrats since I was old enough to vote. But what I experienced during the 20 years I lived
in a college town has me wondering if, in the end, liberals are no different than their conservative
counterparts.

Talk to a passionate liberal in Arcata, say, a haughty former mayor or an arrogant ex-newspaper editor or
some like-minded individual with over-sensitive, myopic Pollyanna views and a superior attitude. They will
more than likely offer this lofty opinion of their citizenry: “Democrats are the most rational people in this
country. Republicans only care about themselves. They eat meat, don’t recycle or compost, and drive gas
guzzlers.” Blah, blah, blah, rag, rag, rag, get the picture?

Their complaints have become like Eminem lyrics that way.

Arcata is the most sanctimonious town in Northern California. It’s a hotbed of lofty musings and
self-deception. Many of its residents are as essentially naïve about the real world as George H.W. Bush
was when confronted with his first supermarket scanner.

Of course, not everyone in Arcata is bathed in a fine mist of bias and insensitivity. There are plenty of
residents untouched by HSU’s ivory-tower smugness. Yet a good number of those in charge — city
leaders and self-appointed PC ayatollahs — are mired in a self-righteous rut that runs roughshod over
such heinous criminals as cigarette smokers and tree-fallers and (gasp!) skateboarders. Their list of
dissatisfactions with anything right-wing related is nearly despair-grade.

Case in point: I recently wrote a column about the need for conservationists and the timber industry to
work together. You would have thought I had suggested slaying senior citizens. A few of my Facebook
friends (mostly Arcata residents) were choked with fury. One labeled me a “traitor.” Another person stated
that my recent move to Fortuna had turned me into “just another dumb redneck.”

Arcata government is so hilariously prone to arrogance that it has become immune to any sort of
self-awareness. The most influential among the ruling elite actually feel an obligation to project their
political views, gender bias, and moral authority on everyone else in the county. I have a suspicion that
this kind of snobbery takes place in every college town in the United States.

Sure, everyone does a little innocent judging from time to time, but the high command in Arcata takes it to
the limit. They paint with a broad brush and create feelings of anger and resentment in other Humboldt
residents. They want you to believe that conservatives eat their children, foreclose on your homes, and
put good people out of a job. They chastise anyone who doesn’t fit into their cultish, narrow-minded
perception of the universe that is Arcata.

These folks give higher education a bad name.

According to a poll by the New York Times, conservatives donate more to charity than liberals do. Believe
it or not, they also volunteer their time, give generously to their communities, and help feed the poor. Their
representatives are not immune from taking money from big-wig donors or free from the influence-peddling, but neither are liberal politicians. The truth is people are people. Not everyone who lives in Arcata is a long-haired, unemployed hippy. And not everyone who resides elsewhere in Humboldt County is a white-trash pickup-driving moron with a truck horn that plays “Dixie.”

Liberals and conservatives alike generalize. They are inclined to reduce people who have different
religious, environmental, political, and sexual beliefs into some type of caricature. It’s pathetic that after all
we’ve accomplished in the areas of civil rights, women’s rights and worker’s rights, we’re still divided by a
deep chasm of ignorance and mistrust. Even the most educated among us — those who teach at our local
colleges and lead our nation — are clueless as how to unite the people in this country.

I think it’s time for a call of honesty and wisdom of the heart from everyone. We can start by practicing
humbleness instead of preaching superiority. That’s the sign of a great leader, you know — humility.
Arcata’s most out-of-touch citizens might want to begin by wiping that condescending smirk off their faces,
stepping outside of town once-in-a-while, and developing a better understanding of those in their
community. You know, like blue-collar workers and conservative voters. We’re all negotiating the sea of
life here in Humboldt. And despite what one ex-town mayor might think, we’re not all dumb rednecks.

Eric Kirk and His Brownshirts

[UPDATE Below :: Brownshirt’s at Work]

As noted before, Blogs are a good measure of a community. You get mostly unfettered articles on subjects that interest the blog owner and often enough, a whole panoply of commentary from visitors that sets the community tone – from the mundane nonsense, racist, bigoted, biased, prejudiced, moronic, ignorant, stupid, baseless, filthy lies, innuendo, false accusations and other hate-filled mongering blather, ad hominem, hyperbole to enlightening, inspirational, intelligent, commonsense instructional and fun reading. Occasionally, you get a replica of what if feels like to live in a totalitarian, authoritarian Elitist State when you visit one of these blogs and make a comment. The Nazi Brownshirts that possess an IQ of a pig come out in droves fully blessed and empowered by the Blog owner and moderator to attack and verbally assault, bully and ridicule. All the time proclaiming their right as a free American to wage verbal warfare on the unsuspecting visitor. They wait with baited breath for you to try to defend yourself so they can justify their “right” to assault you as a hate mongering Troll.

Like most houses of ill repute, they look nice on the outside, are inviting and full of promises, the beauty they offer is breathtaking, but deliver a slow death. That is why they cater to the intellectually adolescent, the brainwashed 5 year old, full of feel-good propaganda that only knows what they believe.  Consequently, they are incapable and unable to accept or handle the truth. To them, truth becomes hate speech.

When I start the Joe Blow Report I determined to be inclusive and list all the local blogs. My interest in Southern Humboldt garnered me an introduction to Eric Kirk and his SoHum Parlance II. Occasionally, he would introduce a subject of interest and I would comment on an observation or two. The end result, well — his latest comment pretty much says it all — his true feelings about me and my commentary.

Actually Joe, what I noticed is that when the threads were no longer perpetually dominated by nonsensical posts from you, Forest Queen, and Suzi, participation from everyone else actually picked up. [Emphasis mine.]

But that wasn’t all. He runs an open blog, everyone can comment on anything they want. He posts NO rules; from time to time he says he knows what he doesn’t like when he sees it, and deletes the comment — so ultimately, commenting on his blog is like going into court and having a  judge tell you, “Make your best case and I’ll decide which laws apply, if any.” No way to defend yourself there; it’s all about the judge.

He says the “thread were no longer perpetually dominated by nonsensical posts.” I would encourage the reader to go to his blog and look at the mountain of “nonsensical blog posts” under, All Things Reconsidered on KMUD Tonight – “What can change your mind? that have absolutely NOTHING to do with the theme that he actively participates in. OH Yeah! There are at current time 424 comments.

It seems he doesn’t run such an “open” blog after all. To impress everyone who is boss, without a word despite what he says now, he banned Forest Queen some time ago. When he did that he never said anything about moderating Suzy or my comments. I stopped making comments after reading his personal and insulting comments justifying his arbitrary behavior. Speaking for myself, I’m not a grammar school child in Eric Kirk’s school for ignorant morons. Recently, different commenters have been asking about Forest Queen and why she can return to make comments. Eric Kirk explains why she can’t:

Forest Queen was banned because I received about half a dozen complaints from people telling me offline that they no longer come here because she dominates every thread and dilutes every discussion with incoherent nonsense, apparently just for kicks. I gave several warnings.

The last straw was a thread in which there had been a very interesting discussion which dissolved when she made about 7 or 9 straight nonsensical posts – the discussion was dead.

I don’t actually remember anything she posted about law. I’m sure she did, but nothing that struck me as anything intellectually memorable.

There are plenty of other blogs for her to play her games on. She can start her own. [Emphasis mine.]

I would like to point out that his justification is totally bogus, without basis. No one can “dominate” any thread or dilute any “discussion,” with what he judges to be “incoherent nonsense,” not unless you are an illiterate moron. Besides, to a five year old almost everything adults talk about is “incoherent nonsense.”

When Suzy posted a comment on the above reasons, I decided to test him and see if he had banned me from commenting too. This is what I got when I posted the following comment:

Your comment is awaiting moderation.

Joe Blow

After blocking Forest Queen my tolerance for Eric Kirk’s in-your-face hypocrisy and his unAmerican supporters’ hyperbolic justification tanked. Promised myself if ever had anything to say I’d publish on my own blog, but this is unreal. Whatever Eric Kirk thought to do and now justify is really amusing, not to mention so ever satisfying to witness his exposure. You shit in your own bed Kirk and don’t even know it.

Has anyone bothered to take a look the the extent of this blog thread (alone), as of this writing 421 comments, with its extensive, “dominating and diluting” massive blather, “with incoherent nonsense,” and compare it with Eric Kirk’s reasons for banning (censoring Forest Queen)? While at the same time promoting himself as a champion patriot, defending the rights and freedoms consistent with or to a democratic society. You couldn’t ask for a more perfect example of a “dead thread” totally unrelated to the original blog posting. Talk about rank, rotten hypocrisy – the stench permeates my offices so bad I had to turn off the computer.

What goes around always comes around,” Kirk, and that is the real reason people stopped associating with you. You, actually, did us all a favor, in particular Forest Queen.

Interestingly, even though I am not outright banned, Eric DID post this comment with the following answer:

Actually Joe, what I noticed is that when the threads were no longer perpetually dominated by nonsensical posts from you, Forest Queen, and Suzi, participation from everyone else actually picked up.

The question I ask is, Who is proven to perpetually dominate his bog with nonsensical posts now? The stupid, inane commentary boiling out of his blog now rivals all comments made by Forest Queen, Suzy or me.

Be assured, SoHum Parlance II is NOT the only blog in Humboldt County to act this way. The Brownshirt movement is rather extensive. They threaten everything decent, lawful people hold dear.  This class of people are at war with the decent, the generous, the knowledgeable and the law abiding champions of truth, justice and the right to self-defense. They pose a real and abiding threat to our survival, as a nation, as a people and as a community.  While they live in relative obscurity on blogs and on the Internet, they live among us and project and enforce their evil will.


[UPDATE May 14, 2014]  Trolls at Work ala Eric Kirk

Eric demonstrates his disdain for people that do NOT agree with him and his Elitist’s right to lawless judging. The old admonition: “buyer beware” is certainly appropriate for anyone making comments on his blog. Disagree with him or any of his Brownshirts and the moronic obscene, demeaning, derogatory ridicule exceeds what no decent person will accept. So, enjoy his kind of propaganda at your own peril.

Hey, Eric, you even had trolls in 2006!

May 14, 2014 at 8:47 am

Eric Kirk

I had trolls by my third posting Mitch. Almost makes be believe in original sin.
