Enough Irony to Fuel a Thousand White-Hot Suns

From the blog of The John:

When `saying it first` becomes more important than `getting it right`

Yes, that would be the same blog which, among others, refused to acknowledge any inaccuracy in the gay-male-blog meme of ‘trans activists hurt Dan Savage’s feewings in Vancouver’ even after the Canadian news outlet that had first inaccurately reported the incident acknowledged that it had inaccurately reported the incident.

  • According to a Jan. 23, 2012 post in the website of Canada’s Xtra, Dan Savage made an appearance in Vancouver, British Columbia on Jan. 21.

  • According to the aforementioned Jan. 23, 2012 post in the website of Canada’s Xtra, Dan Savage was glitterbombed before that event.

  • According to the aforementioned Jan. 23, 2012 post in the website of Canada’s Xtra, a “group of six activists, who named themselves The Homomilitia for the event, said they confronted Savage as he entered the theatre through a back-alley entrance.”

  • The apparent pre-Savage-event ‘press release’ from The Homomilitia, dated Jan. 21, does not indicate who all, if anyone, with The Homomilitia is trans-anything or anything-anything.

  • On Jan. 25, 2012, The John posted the following at AmericaBlog: “How the gays defined ‘Santorum.’

  • In the aforementioned Jan. 25, post, The John again reiterates the alleged Vancouver-centric facts underlying his Jan. 23 post.

  • In the comments section of the aforementioned Jan. 25, post, The John is called out on the lack of substantiation for the allegation that trans people were involved in the Vancouver event and responds by saying that that simply doesn’t matter: “Every attack until now has been done by trans people, and the attacks are happening because the trans community decided to demonize Dan and make him public enemy number one.  So, yes, if you are responsible for motivating the people who attacked him, and they’re doing it in your name, and the previous attacks were done by you, then yes you are responsible for putting a stop to it”

Remember?

Trans people do indeed.

We never forget when Gay, Inc.,-defending elitists motivate others to lie about trans people and then justify the lying.

  1. Of COURSE I remember, I posted a short unemotional criticism of his article’s framing, especially the clause at the end of the title, and was promptly banned for life from posting on Americablog. 🙂
