You know, the people over at FTB and Atheism Plus are always whining about how they get bullied by those of us who don’t buy into their irrational bullshit. They constantly moan and complain about being victims, blah blah… It’s truly pathetic.
I must say that these people are good at convincing themselves, and
those incapable of any rational thought, that these things are true.
That they are the poor little victims of constant bullying and nasty
behavior. Yet it was they that pounced on Justin Vacula the
minute they heard he was appointed to the position of co-chair for the
SCA. They were relentless with their campaign of hate in which they
demonstrated their complete lack of any kind of empathy, honesty, or
morality. But then again, we know that they lack these things because
they still pal around with Greg Laden who threatened and stalked Abbie
Smith (in real life). But who cares that Laden is an unhinged and
potentially dangerous crack pot right? As long as he drinks the kool-aid
he’s alright with them. Apparently anything goes over there if you buy
into their crap, and that is truly scary. That they will readily attack
anyone on the opposing side, but that anyone on their side is completely
innocent of any wrong doing. It’s amazing to see the mental gymnastics
these people are capable of in justifying their own bad behavior. It’s
like watching the clergy defend and support their fellow clergymen after
having been exposed as pedophiles. Who cares about the real victims or
the disgusting behavior of the perpetrators? As long as you are on the
same side of the fence we’ll protect and defend you, right? The
cognitive dissonance is disgusting.
So now these immoral pieces of crap have succeeded in getting Justin
Vacula to resign from his position at SCA. He resigned this morning and
explains his reasons why on his blog.
The thing that bothers me most about the FTB and Atheism Plus bullies
is that they will not only attack you in their blogs, or on Twitter,
but that they will actively seek out ways to destroy you at home and
your place of employment. They will spend all of their time and effort
digging for any dirt they can find on you, and if they can’t find any,
they’ll make dirt up by twisting things to suit their personal agendas.
They have no qualms about crossing the line by publicly tarring you with
and unproven allegations. They don’t see others as human beings or have
any concept of what being empathetic, honest, or moral means. They’ll
stop at nothing to destroy those they do not like. These are not the
actions of sane, rational people. That is why they are so dangerous.
While I understand Justin’s reasons for doing what he did, it also
saddens me to see him give up so easily. If one wants to be a leader in
the community, then they have to be willing to take the hits. And some
of those hits will be hard and fast. It comes with the territory. Justin
did not stand firm, and I personally feel disappointed because, by him
resigning, it sends the bullies the message that they can get away with
this kind of shit. And trust me, they’ll do it again because his
resignation now serves as fuel for their fire. They will not hesitate to
employ the same tactics to bully others they do not like out of the
community. This is why I feel that Justin’s resignation was a bad move,
and that by him having done what he did, he has now sent the message
that it’s OK for these assholes to bully people because, it works.
But let me be clear to the bullies, because I want them to be aware
of what they’ll be getting into if they ever try this shit on me. I
guarantee that they will have to put on their best armor, because I do
not go down without a serious fight. I don’t back down, and I don’t take
shit from the likes of these immoral, irrational assholes. If they ever
challenge me, they better be ready to fight hard because I can promise
that I’ll return every one of their punches harder and faster than they
could imagine. If you engage me in a fight, it will be a real fight, and
you’d better come correct.
I hope those at FTB and Atheism Plus enjoy their momentary victory. It won’t last.
