- Racial Discrimination
- Sexual Discrimination
To put it lightly I am paradoxically prejudiced against people with prejudices. I won't often tell someone that their opinion is wrong, even if I don't agree with it. I promise you, though, that racists, sexists, and those against equal rights for gays are very god damn wrong. Disagree if you want and then kindly fuck off to some other corner of the Internet where you can be a bigot asshole all by yourself.
Popping over for my daily dose of BoLS yesterday, I damn near pissed my pants with joy when I found out that IA8 was finally released. This is quite fortuitous as my pal Hoagy is currently back in the UK visiting his mum and had already been armed with a shopping list of forgeworld goodies for me. It's great, I'm getting the Elysian bits I need to round out my army and a new book with an Elysian list without having to pay shipping back to the states or rely on the Chicago Bunker to fuck up my order- it only took them 5 months for them to get my IA7 in after lying to me for weeks about my order status and then neglecting to inform me when it had arrived. But then I decided to read in the comments to try an figure out how 30 some odd replies had been wracked up in a short time on this topic.
What could possibly be said about a book release other than 'OMG I'm so glad this is finally out, it is teh awesome?' Well apparently if you're Techmahreen you can prove that you're a racist fuck. Finally (as in over 24 hours since the offending post was made) the comment in question has been removed from the site. How it took that long I'll never know. If I included fuck, cunt, shit, ass, Stelek, YTTH, or any number of other fun things that I enjoy saying, the comment wouldn't have gone through at all. Now I'll warn you, if you're actually sensitive about racial slurs, you probably won't want to continue reading this. I won't be using any myself, but I will be quoting one or two. Shame on BoLS for failing to include the N-word on their filter or for approving it in a comment.
As I mentioned, the offending comment(s) have been removed and will now be lost to the ages and a thing of distant memory. Or they would be had I not had the foresight to copy everything over into Word, predicting that the offending material would be quickly removed. As already mentioned, it was removed, but certainly not in a timely fashion. Now the comments you're about to read (snowmobiled lightly for your pleasure) are mostly against the racist asshole in question here. Unfortunately, there are actually a few people who wind up agreeing with him. All of these assholes have officially joined my list of people to be crammed inside the first rocket shot into the sun. So keep reading to find out how a "first" comment on a post about a new book release devolves into a racist festival of hate. The following includes the deleted comments in question and enough context for this all to make sense. There are some additional comments still up pertaining to this that you can see here. You should also note that Techmahreen uses the word "jewtuber" later in the same thread in reply to something else. I did not, unfortunately capture that when I copied the comments section.
This awesome book. ~When you see it you'll know. Pretty funny actually
Lacking ~man, this is a great response. "first" should always be this fun.
~ummm what the fuck are you talking about?
~wow, you really are a nutter you fucking bigoted piece of shit
but then we can just say the whole mud-nigger continent if we want. ~and there it is. I can't even begin to comprehend how somebody would think that this was an ok thing to say. I am truly appalled.
~so how come you didn't refer to Greece or California earlier in the decade when Enron was fucking them and their whole power grid? You comment was still not cool and way too easy to take out of the loose context that you intended.This aint the place for that.
Really? Is this ok? ~no it's not, but I can't really figure out why you needed to quote that.
~well fuck you very much too. We've seen you show up in FNIF before because you're a moron. Well now we can officially say that you are a useless waste of space.
