So now comes the phony Kumbaya Brigade to ignore facts and realities.
Let’s assume you do not agree with me that accusations of race baiting are racist rhetoric. I think you have no understanding of the use of the phrase if you think that and I think even if you do, you should understand that people of color do not agree with you. Perhaps, with that in mind, you might refrain from such scurrilous charges. A true progressive would, imo.
But let’s get to what really exercises them – “people” being “mean.” And by “people” I mean me. Faheyman wrote an off topic comment in a Buhdy post attacking ME:
“Bad Karma” Alert! (2.00 / 2) [delete comment]
“So we need as loud of a voice as possible…and we need new ways to present our positions clearly and simply. …and to move the candidates AND to promote some form of unity…”
We must yell louder, but yell with good will, if unity (solidarity and united action) is the goal. To wit…
I came across this comment on the front page earlier today:
[hidden comment] Fuck you (0.00 / 2)
Fuck you you racist bastard!
Hey Buhdy. Fuck this guy.’
Fuck this piece of shit racist.

This particlar diarist routinely spreads extremely bad karma on your site. And, since he’s a frequent front-pager, this happens all too often.
He resorts to name-calling (not to mention basic rudeness).
I don’t get it. It’s more appropriate for the Planet Orange crowd, IMHO. I thought I had found a refuge from that kind of shit over here.
(Also, thanks for uprating my diary. You’re too kind.)
So I am attacked personally in an off topic manner. The KUMBAYA! Crowd says Hurrah! But that’s not my problem. My problem is with the dishonesty this person displays. He ignores the comments I am repsonding to. For example, this one from a person who then writes this shameless diary. The comment stated:
The only racist statement is yours (1.00 / 2) [delete comment]
“I am sure access had nothing to do with white man Solomont’s decision to bundle for Obama. Riiiiight.” Perhaps your goal is to drive this website into irrelevance?

Faheyman was not concerned in the least about that person calling me a racist. What of the Karma of that Faheyman? But Faheyman is simply dishonest. In his diary he wrote:
Having been “called out”–not once, but twice–by an essayist here this (yesterday) evening (Eastern Standard Time), I would like to respond.
Why does Faheyman act the victim here? He ORIGINALLY called me out. He has not responded to why he ignored the charges of racism against me by NotLightnessofBeing. He is a dishonest hypocrite. He had nothing to say about Night Owl accusing me of race baiting. What of the Karma Faheyman. But Faheyman is a dishonest phony.
Let’s make this clear. All of the accusations against me are false. I initiated NO HOSTILE exchanges. It was the KUMBAYA crowd who has attacked me personally. It is the KUMBAYA crowd who called ma a raicst FIRST. It is the Kumbaya crowd who called me a race baiter.
It is the height of dishonesty, hypocrisy and phonyism from the Kumbaya crowd to attack me for being mean while they spare no opportunty to attack me personally and call me names.
I have said from day 1 that I do not give a shit about civility and Kumbaya. This is no secret. I do not complain about being attacked. I do complain about dishonest phony Kumbayers here who play the innocent when they are the instigators.
I know that many of you do not have the desire to call out this dishonesty. That’s fine. But rest assured, I will. ESPECIALLY when it comes to race issues.
I will not be silenced by the dishonest Kumbaya crowd here. Only Buhdy can do that.
