Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Mar 1, 2012, 10:31 AM

f*ck manners. I am going to celebrate the passing of an evil man.

Bad people don't deserve respect when they pass on.

I'm an atheist. I'm not worried about some supreme being becoming upset with me for revelling in someone's death.

It is good for everyone when a bad person dies.

Andrew Brietbart had zero redeeming qualities. He was a negative for society. His passing makes the world a better place.

I celebrated when kim jung il and gaddafi died. I'll throw a f***ing party when Limbaugh overdoses on a cocktail of oxycontin and viagra.

Good riddance, Andrew... You evil f***.

1. He abused Kennedy shortly after Kennedy died.

 

Why should he not get the same treatment?

And we all make judgments, every hour of every day. I think Breitbart was a clown and an idiot on the airwaves. Probably not 'evil' in the sense that most people think of it.

He was an asshole and a waste of breath on TV. I'm glad he's no longer on the airwaves.

Case closed, so far as I'm concerned, and now let's move on. That's just my viewpoint, though.

8. correct

In the hours immediately following Senator Ted Kennedy's death, Breitbart called Kennedy a "villain", a "duplicitous bastard", a "prick" and "a special pile of human excrement."

still feel sorry for his kids.

He may have been a boil on the ass of America, but his kids probably still loved him.

31. It's less about personal "respect" than about a common humanity.

The guy wasn't a serial killer, or anything.

I remember a crowd of young people "cheering" and partying outside the prison holding

Ted Bundy on the night of his execution, and while I think Bundy was SO much more

deserving of that reaction than Breitbart, I still found it ugly.

10. Not everyone is throwing out religion as a reason to not celebrate.

And it's a pretty big assumption on your part that he didn't have some redeeming qualities. I wouldn't begin to know what they might have been but then I didn't know the man. Neither did you.

He had a family and children so...who knows? Not me. Not you.

All we know is what an ass he was on the airwaves.

16. He never showed any of these alleged "redeeming qualities" in the public square before he died.


Certainly not to Shirley Sherrod, or any of the other lives he'd ruined. Certainly not to the family of Teddy Kennedy when he was tweeting insults just hours after he'd died.

I for one, wish to congratulate the spirochetes on their victory over Breitbart's brain. They have avenged the honor of all those sheep he was buggering.

23. No argument from anyone here that Breitbart was toxic.

And I don't want to pound on this point more than necessary, but if the Democrats had stood up to Breitbart and other idiots' nonsense, Sherrod would not have been wronged.

In fact, you can say she was more wronged by Democrats since they had the choice as to whether to support her or drop her based on something some pontificating fool said on TV.

27. I agree, Obama and Vilsack are equally to blame for being so quick to act on information coming from


a known slanderer. And for not giving Mrs. Sherrod an opportunity to answer to the slanderous allegations against her before handing her a pink slip. But the worst you could say about Obama and Vilsack is that they showed cowardice in the face of the pressure Breitfart was putting on them. They weren't acting with malice toward Mrs. Sherrod.

Breitfart, on the other hand was willfully slandering Mrs. Sherrod, well knowing the damage he was doing to her career and her reputation.

36. It's only 'pressure' if we choose to see it that way.

We give Breitbart and others of his ilk power over us.

Why should the Democrats or DUers care what Breitbart had to say about anything, other than worrying about how what he said might sound to everyone else?

We all need to stand up to bullies, not give them power over us.

And the best way to 'stand up' to them is to ignore them.

42. I didn't give Breitbart anything, except maybe a few insults. It was Obama and Vilsack who empowered


Britefart by acting on his slander. Its hard to ignore someone like Breitfart when those who we elect to represent us seem to fall for every single one of his scams.

And the bad part about it is that he's got a long line of protegees like Jame's O'Queefe to carry on his legacy (and to continue the spread of syphilis).

20. I'm going to wait until tomorrow.

 

My personal policy is when someone evil dies, to be nice on the day of death, out of respect for his or her family. I do that for my own benefit, not because I care about the dead person, or even particularly care about his or her family. I care about my own mental health, and I don't find instant grave-dancing to be healthy. It's just nasty, and I prefer not to be nasty.

Tomorrow I'll probably comment on some particular evil or other that Breitbart committed, but for today, I'm just going to say nothing.

How interesting...I wonder if you know that this statement gives AMMUNITION to those who claim

Hint: Some of us don't need a supreme being to respond in a kind, humane manner.
