Allegedly the wife of Charles Carreon
When last we left the ongoing saga of censorious douchebag Charles Carreon, the “Popehat Reign of Terror” led to Charles being challenged to debate Ken White over Charles’ proposition that “Distributed Internet Reputational Attack” be recognized as grounds for a lawsuit, which inspired me to remark:
Thin-skinned narcissists who cannot admit error — whose response to criticism is always to demonize their critics, and who therefore automatically externalize blame for their own mistakes — are always doing this sort of thing to themselves in the Internet age.
Look: If you are ever in a situation where your stupidity makes you a target, the correct thing to do is . . . nothing.
Don’t react. Don’t try to defend yourself. Don’t lash out at your tormenters. Just ignore it until it is over. Learn your lesson, avoid repetition of the error, and be glad it wasn’t worse.
People who merely describe your stupidity — however mocking and sarcastic their descriptions — have done you no wrong.
Attempting to scapegoat others for your embarrassment, imagining that you have done nothing to deserve mockery or criticism, is never going to repair the damage you have done to yourself. God gives us the enemies we deserve, and we can learn lessons from such experiences, if we are willing to humbly accept chastisement.
Alas, Charles Carreon is prone to spasms of “pearl-clutching horror” — brilliant phrase, Ken — and so the comedic show goes on.
Last year, when Charles was threatening to sue everyone on the Internet into poverty, his wife Tara Carreon added to the entertainment:
“This is one of the little lying bitches working for Matt Inman,” Tara wrote about an apparently female commenter. In an exchange with another online commenter, Tara “jokingly” (her words) threatened that Carreon might subpoena him and search his hard drive. The bewildered commenter asked why he might possibly be subpoenaed. Tara replied:
For all of that illegal content on your hard drive. You’ll have to seek a protective order to keep your porn stash private. What’s your preference—het, gay, bi, BDSM?
The commenter responded, “Wait. Did you just vaguely threaten to try and out me to the general public using a subpoena and use that as a tool to embarrass and humiliate me? WOW. You, darling, have sunk lower than your husband.”
Notice the conspiratorial motif: Anyone on the Internet saying bad things about Charles Carreon must be “working for Matt Inman,” because it is impossible that this is just some random person who noticed that Charles Carreon is a censorious douchebag.
Notice also the Leninist “Who, Whom?” ethos: Threats that Tara Carreon would consider criminal if made against her or her censorious douchebag husband are perfectly acceptable when made against someone who does not admire her censorious douchebag husband.
OK, so in service of her “Stand By Your Man” act, Tara Carreon has started amassing “research” on all these evil people who call her husband a censorious douchebag, including yours truly:
There’s something really ironic about a guy who was a member of a white supremacist hate group, identified as such by the Southern Poverty Law Center, self-righteously hating on convicted domestic terrorist Brett Kimberlin. It’s as if they were brothers! Except that Brett has gone on to do good, and Robert Stacy McCain has gone on to do bad. Looks to me like Brett Kimberlin should be self-righteously hating on Robert Stacy McCain.
Boy, these guys do talk tough. They want you to know that you picked the wrong guy when you picked them for a fight! They going to squash you!
Mr. McCain has no shame. He just talks dirty, dirty, dirty, just like the rest of the rapeutationists. Their mothers should wash their mouths out with soap! Never has the world seen such an abundance of nasty talk.
And what about his Rodney King doctrine, that anyone targeted by the rapeutationists, better just lie down and not move, as their tormenters continue to kick the shit out of them? What a fascist, anti-democratic attitude.
So, that’s his advice. Here’s mine. Flee from the Internet as if it was the Devil himself, or some day you and your loved ones will be laying in a heap of bodies a mile high, all of you killed by the Internet. The nicer you are, the more likely you will be a target of the rapeutationists. This is a game where the bad guys point the finger at the good guys, and win.
Notice that Tara Carreon just became the umpteenth gazillionth person to call me a “white supremacist,” because everybody can rely on the Southern Poverty Law Center to provide them with truth and, also, a “hate map” directing their spree of violent terrorism.
Notice that Tara Carreon praises convicted felon Brett Kimberlin having “gone on to do good,” depending on your definition of good.
Notice that, three weeks after I last mentioned Charles Carreon on this site, Tara Carreon decides that I need to be profiled among the “tormenters” who “continue to kick the shit out of” poor helpless victim Charles Carreon. And why? Because he bears no responsibility whatsoever for the consequences of his ill-advised decision to send a demand for $20,000 to Matt Inman of TheOatmeal.com.
Tara Carreon ignores entirely — because mentioning it would invalidate the Victim Card she wants to play — that the only reason I ever noticed censorious douchebag Charles Carreon is because my name turned up in his list of “rapers” in the “Popehat Reign of Terror”:
Brett Kimberlin — obtained peace order prohibiting blogger Aaron Walker (Worthing) from writing about him (convicted domestic terrorist, bomber, perjurer; wounded a man so badly he later took his own life; laughed off the judgment; made vague and undocumented claims that he suffered threats from unidentified people; astoundingly vile; terrifyingly sociopathic; leads a contemptible life; crazy; quite evil; victimizer; malevolent; outrageous; despicable; remorseless and amoral psycho; crazy stalker) (Rapers: Aaron Walker, Patterico’s Pontifications; Eugene Volokh; Ali A. Akbar of the National Bloggers Club; Elizabeth Kingsley of Harmon, Curran, Spielberg & Eisenberg, LLP; Robert Stacy McCain)
Homey says, ‘I don’t think so.’
Homey don’t play that, see? You want to throw down, we’ll throw down, but when the fight starts with you sucker-punching me, you’d better by God be ready to bring it, because if I didn’t start the fight, I might feel obliged to finish it. And when you then derogate me for daring to notice your insults — as though I have no honor to defend — don’t whine when you find yourself losing the fight you started.
How does Tara Carreon dare to say I have “a fascist, anti-democratic attitude,” when it was her censorious douchebag husband who imagined he could sue the entire Internet into trembling silence?
Oh, I guess only lawyers have a license to terrorize and intimidate people on the Internet, and if any blogger dares say “boo” in reply, then the blogger must be an anti-democratic fascist.
But you just keep digging that hole, darling. By the time you dig your way to the flaming pit of Hell, I suppose you’ll still be blaming me.
