moms demand better memory holes

I am sure all of my readers are familiar with the immortal quote that the internet views censorship as damage and routes around it. 

I am also sure my readers are familiar with the concept of “memory holes”. 

And, finally, I am sure my readers are familiar with noted anti-rights legislator Leland Yee recently being arrested on charges of, among other things, illegal arms trafficking. 

With all that said, this should not […]

a welcome breath of fresh air

Any long-time participant in the ongoing debate surrounding "gun control" and the unjust abrogations of our basic, Constitutionally-protected human rights will be familiar with the phrase Reasoned Discourse, but for those newcomers to the field, allow me to give you a short-and-sweet summation of the idea.

Of late, and in the past, "gun control" supporters have been crying that they want to have a "debate" / "conversation" / "discussion" about the future of "gun […]

lou gagliardi wants to kidnap your children

But she wants someone else to do it for her, so that is ok. 

Unfortunately, the following Twitter conversation will be somewhat disjointed and I will be unable to adequately link to all of the various tweets.  Why?  Because Lou Gagliardi is a spineless coward who, upon realizing what she said, Memory Hole’d the tweets I managed to keep screen captures of. 

Why did she delete these tweets?  Why do you think – […]

james yeager proves his cowardice

Courtesy of a comment over at ENDO, I have discovered that James Yeager has made his "James Yeager is a coward?" video private and unviewable by the unwashed masses. In other words, he ran away from the impressively colorful conversations breaking out in the comments section of the video; one can hardly blame him, though, considering the number of large, strapping young men who took him up on his offer.

I guess that answers his […]

james yeager violated the tennessee constitution

… and now “shall be punished otherwise, in such manner as the Legislature may prescribe.”  No, seriously. 

After yesterday’s post documenting how James Yeager is a coward, not based on his actions in Iraq, but rather his actions here in America, I was planning on leaving this whole topic alone for the foreseeable future, but this is just too much comedic gold to pass up.  As was pointed out to me by WizardPC, dueling […]

why are "gun control" extremists so violent?

That is a question that you see rattling around pro-rights weblogs from time to time… The common theory is that the people we identify as "gun control" extremists are simply violent people, and they naturally gravitate towards supporting "gun control" because they also happen to suffer from something known as

"projection" – in short, they recognize (consciously or unconsciously) that they are violent people, but rather than dealing with that problem internally, they project that […]

another anti-rights blog, another case of reasoned discourse

A few days ago, yet another anti-rights cultist made some bleating tweet about how Americans needed to have a "conversation" about "gun violence" and "gun deaths". Obviously, we have already had this conversation (hint: the anti-rights cultists lost, and rightfully so), but this "conversation" schtick is the current "gun control" talking point, so all of the useful idiots are out in droves harping on it as hard as they can.

Anywise, I pointed out […]

the truth about the truth about guns and robert farago

Unless you are prepared for a veritable skyscraper of text (over 9,000 words) and a serious airing of grievances, you should probably go ahead and plan on skipping this post.

That disclaimer dispensed with, here is how it is. Over the past few years, Robert Farago – the editor of The Truth About Guns – has functionally leeched off of, exploited, stabbed in the back, maligned, abused, lied about, misrepresented, stolen from, and infringed upon […]

how to fail at a debate, courtesy of will spencer

Just take a look at this conversation:

@willspencer: Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America. @RedheadAndRight @glennmw @KurtSchlichter @tnacgal

@linoge_wotc: I assume this was sarcasm. RT @willspencer Most "Libertarians" want Obama to win, because they are angry at America.

@willspencer: Unfortunately, no. Instead, it is an honest evaluation of what I am seeing. @linoge_wotc  [Note: Tweet successfully Memory Hole’d. Replicated from memory.]

@linoge_wotc: Your perception is wrong. I suspect […]

how… convenient

As a general rule, if I can avoid it, I do not link to Wikipedia from this site. I sometimes use it as a launching-point for my actual, in-depth research into a topic, but I try my damnest to avoid linking to it as a primary or sole source of a piece of information.

Why? Because of things like this :

Wikipedia has decided to delete the page titled ‘Forward (generic name of […]

caution: fragile bubble of delusion ahead

Say you hold to a belief, or set of beliefs.

Say you are 100%, unequivocally convinced that those beliefs are the correct beliefs to hold.

Say you know it is just a matter of time until you convince everyone else of the correctness of your beliefs.

Given that set of operating hypotheses, why would it matter if disbelievers spoke up against you? You know you are right, and you know that is […]

error: memory hole failure

Ahh, “gun control” extremists… when will you ever learn that the Memory Hole simply is not a viable tactic any more? 

Consider, if you must, the fairly impolite example of @BenjaminV, who had this “conversation” with me regarding the shooting at Virginia Tech on Thursday: 

BenjaminV:  There should be no guns on college campuses, period. #virginiatech #guncontrol

Linoge_WOTC:  How are those #gunfreezones working for you? RT @BenjaminV: There should be no guns on […]

don’t be a robert farago

My opinions regarding Robert Farago are not exactly state secrets – the man is an attention-whoring, victim-blaming, content-thieving, fuddish jackass who has latched onto the Second Amendment as his new "golden goose" after he drove The Truth About Cars into the ground and played the part of a rat leaving a sinking ship – but I was more than happy to let him wallow in his own self-delusions after the whole, "ZOMG, ebil CONSPIRACY!" fiasco… […]

why are they so eager to expose their bigotry?

Thank you, dear Twitter gods, for giving the willfully ignorant, narrow-minded, and bigoted a place to demonstrate their shortcomings freely and without limitations to the rest of the world.

Sincerely,

Someone who enjoys blogfodder.

Now that we have taken care of giving thanks, let us turn to the matter at hands. This morning, I had the… privilege… of engaging in the following conversation with an anti-rights cultist who, as her words will […]

these posts almost write themselves

By now, you have almost undoubtedly heard about the 80+ people murdered in a shooting in Norway, and I would like to extend my heart-felt sympathies and prayers to the families and friends of those killed or wounded in this heinous act. 

Unfortunately, rather than leave it at a comment like that, the various anti-rights cultists across the world started spooling up their spin engines before the first body had even completely cooled yet, […]

the logical fallacies of @iamboogie

This is a prime example of why, by and large, attempting to argue with anti-rights nuts is fruitless and frustrating for all people involved – when they realize they are losing the conversation, they shove their fingers in their ears, start screaming nonsense, and run off into the horizon:

iamboogie: Wow. “Some polls have indicated that 67 percent of Texans are against guns on campus.” And yet. http://j.mp/icBunr #noguns #TXlege

wotc_linoge: @iamboogie If 67% […]

methinks i see a pattern

On the one hand, and via Robb at Sharp as a Marble, an unkown-to-me conservative weblogger has been receiving threats for the past few years from a particularly unstable, violent, and vile individual, who has taken it upon herself to extend those threats to the weblogger’s child and mother.

What was Jeff’s (the weblogger in question) reaction? Well, you can read the entire, sordid timeline here, but suffice to say that numerous restraining orders […]

the words of alan baird, remembered

I am very thankful that certain pro-rights webloggers are on our side of the fence; otherwise, people I agree with would be facing masterful take-downs like this one:

In closing, I think it might behoove you to get some psychiatric help. Work on your bigotry, your fear of firearms, your self-control issues, and your curious fixation on things penile. Also your hatred of your fellow man. If you don’t, you might end up strapping […]
