I love posting highly polarizing diaries at times like this.
...there have been times (many, many times) in my career where I've been paid hefty hourly fees, (even alongside a few folks that are working for the administration, now) for creating the very sh*t to which this crowd reacts, as if it was factual (LOL!), and as if it should be accepted at face value (which is the intended purpose of it, of course; but it has NOTHING whatsoever to do with the reality)The Pied Piper of Doom, October 2, 2013
There is a doctrine called "false in one, false in all." It means that once a person has been found to or has admitted to a deliberate deception about one thing, everything they say should be treated as unworthy of belief. I find nothing so loathesome as deliberate deceit, and not far behind are those who enable or approve of deliberate deceit to advance their objectives. That is why I have continued, and will continue, to call this out.
Unfortunately the proprietor of the biggest "left" community blog and several senior persons past and present have regularly shielded the Pied Piper from equal enforcement of their site's rules, even to the point of allowing the posting of virtually an entire copyrighted LA Times article, something that supposedly gives rise to immediate banning.
In this case, finally, all pretense has been dropped. If Truth appears in anything written by the Pied Piper, it is strictly as a passerby, a happenstance. If it helps to achieve some other end, fine, and if it doesn't, then Truth must be denigrated, attacked, and insulted. Revealing the truth isn't the objective; rather, making those who object to his deliberate deceits feel unwelcome enough to leave, is. That isn't me saying so. It is the Pied Piper himself saying so.
