Response to Me. (Reply #26)

36. it is indeed, as i said - bigoted and callous

no, it's not okay with me.

unfortunately, it also remains in common use as a put-down. i would like to know if Mr. Kulinski was using that term to jape and parrot some right-winger with whom he was in an argument at the time, who had perhaps just used that term himself.

context matters to me. the presentation of a handful of tweets, in the absence of a pattern of public behavior, is not in itself sufficient evidence for me to draw a conclusion other than "he said it." what did he mean by it? does he regret saying it? does it tell us anything useful about him as a person now?

are you familiar with the James Gunn smear story i referenced? the initial accusations (from Cernovich iirc) took the same form, but were actually more substantial - there were dozens of tweets, and the language used was damning. FOX and AM radio picked it up and amplified it to get Disney to fire Gunn, asserting he was a dangerous pedophile. here's the wikipedia entry:
