Peev, You Ignorant Slut

I should have taken more time with this post, but what are you going to do? Maybe I'll add to it later. ;)

A little post from Mitch at Shot in the Dark regarding Instant Runoff Voting in St. Paul and its opposition.

Inevitably, Peev comes in with his size-twelves and a sack full of imitation leather bound books (when a simple sentence or two would suffice) and vomits all over the comment section.

I feel a limmerick coming on:
“O’Rourke next week!” shouts Mitch.
Then Peev comes in to bitch.
In wanders Badda
Saying, “Peev… yadda, yadda,
You feel just like an itch."
I take great joy at quoting one of his (many) sentences, “…I don’t think complicating things is best,” and letting him know that we we’ll try to bear that in mind.

Then the serious comment.

Peev says, “…your claim that this is the ‘radical left’ is just so much BS. Care to prove your claim that it’s only the radical left that’s pushing this?”

Mitch didn’t insist that only the radical left was behind this. That’s all. I suggested that Peev might be correct in that you’ve got moderates behind Instant Runoff Voting and that Mitch may also be correct in that there’s a push for this from the radical left.

I add that you can’t take Peev to seriously when he tries to identify conservatives, radical leftists, moderates, etc. because he describes those ideologies in a ham-fisted manner. Especially, conservatives.

Peev responds:
“I can pretty easily tell moderate Republicans from extremists. Moderates will have a free and open debate, extremists (in the manner of Hitler and Stalin both) call the middle the other extreme and breed hatred for anyone who isn’t ‘them’. I’m sure you’ve never seent that tactic here, right? Flash has commented that this is what this blog has devolved to many times, so you don’t need to take my word for it.”
Okay… in describing conservatism, moderate and extreme, he conjures up the names of Hitler and Stalin. When I point that out, he claims he wasn’t speaking about extremist conservatism. Fine. He provided another example why he’s a ham-fisted commenter… and perhaps a lazy commenter.

Back to Peev:
“…I’d say someone is a conservative who favors the ‘fairness’ tax, because, bread and butter,”
He also tries to back out of his “Don Shelby is a moderate conservative,” comment from a few weeks ago… which is hilarious every time he continues down that road.

Back to Peev’s bitch on Mitch:
“I certainly think Mitch was trying to suggest this is essentially a baby of the radical left, meaning it’s THEIR agenda, their idea.. it’s a suggestion he can’t prove, he just intimates it and hides behind the fact that he didn’t say ‘only’ when the implication was there.”
The suggestion Peev makes is not provable… he’s putting words in Mitch’s mouth. He said what he said, Peev. Plain and simple. When did you stop beating your wife,Peev?

He also suggests that he’s more light-hearted than me and “other extremist righty” folks. I’m not sure I’m an extremist, especially his kind of extremist.
“You guys are ready willing and able to tell EVERYONE and ANYONE how to live, what’s right, what’s not, except when those rules are used on you, THEN you get incensed, start calling everyone every name under the sun, and invoke all sorts of smear.”
Based on that comment, he’s out of his depth. I’m not sure where he’s getting that… but that is merely the tip of the iceberg.
“…it sure would be nice if rather than preaching hate all the time,”

“…many of you live in such a deep dark hole of seething hate,”

“…if the shoe were on the other foot, wouldn’t give a crap.”

“…on the political scale 1 being Strom Thurmond in his younger days, 100 being Che Guevera, I’m about a 55.. I suspect you’re about a 10, maybe a 6.”
He then bitches that I said he’s not objective. To “prove” that he is he claims to support a number of issues that might be strictly conservative… as if that kind of support from a Left-Leaner means he’s objective. He’s not objective because he doesn’t seem to understand conservatism and is lazy, clumsy, or ignorant of moderate and extreme conservative philosophy.

Why do you claim I might be a 6 or 10 on your scale? That might very well be the reason you are not objective.
