Another Duke Douche: People Write Mean Things About Me Just Because I Dabble In Spreading False Rape Allegations

Call the waaambulance.

One thing these assholes keep doing is mentioning the "racist" attacks on them as a way to discredit all attacks on them. I don't like the racist attacks myself -- but I have a feeling these people do, because it allows them to very quickly dismiss all criticism of their actions (and, more painfully, their qualifications) as just the sniping of some trailer-trash cross-burners.

It's a cute trick-- but 99.9% aren't resorting to racist slurs.

I'm not sure how this douchebag can even cry racism...

...unless my preferred racial slurs for Scandanavians -- "Icebacks" or "Snow-Wops" -- have finally caught on.

He engages in the by-now-rote dismissal of bloggers as a bunch of juvenile snarksters who are plainly ouf of their depths in anything other than a Krull trivia tournament. But check his very measured, very scholarly dismissal of the fine and painstaking work on the case done by K.C. Johnson:

I'm glad K.C. Johnson and his Sunshine Band of Duke lacrosse bloggers have found a way to keep busy over the long winter.

I... I... I don't think that even qualifies as a joke, does it? It doesn't even rise to the level of juvenile snark.

So bloggers can't indulge in snark and "personal attacks" and the like. We should all strive to be above such petty, meanspirited namecalling.

But of course our betters reserve the right to disobligate themselves from following the rules they would impose on us all, when they deem it necessary and appropriate.

My takeaway from all of this? Most tenured professors -- particularly those in the verbally-oriented disciplines, such as literature and history -- are barely capable of writing in the English language. If it's not the turgid repetitions of Provost Lange, it's this jackass' third-grade-level rubber-glue meanderings.

Thanks to Slublog, who points out the unintentional comedy gold of this jackass' last cliche:

Our computers come with a delete button for a reason.

That was quite the internet put-down in, what was it?, 1974. Big for a while on DARPANet, I think.

In that spirit-- if the bulk of the Duke arts & sciences faculty makes a teeny-tiny mistake in lynching three kids based on a stripper/occasional hooker's ludicrous lies, well-- that's why pencils have erasers!

Sneak Preview: Scandi Pimp My Ride:

Why no bling-bling on the reindeer? Because among Scandis, they mean "pimp my ride" literally. See, they're dirty reindeer-buggers, is what I'm getting at.

Thanks to LauraW for that.
