The #BlockedByDavidSirota Club: Membership Is Growing Rapidly!

Posted on | April 20, 2013 | 40 Comments

“Philadelphia mayoral candidate Dwight Evans yesterday accepted the resignation of his campaign manager and fired the deputy manager after learning that the deputy was linked to a bogus Web site apparently intended to hurt a rival candidate.
“Evans, a state representative from West Oak Lane, denounced the phony Web page as an example of ‘dirty tricks’ . . .
“[Evans] apologized to the target of the ruse, John White Jr., a rival for the Democratic nomination for mayor.”
“Evans said yesterday he had learned that his deputy campaign manager, David J. Sirota, of Huntingdon Valley, was ‘associated’ with the person who registered the site . . .”

Philadelphia Inquirer, Feb. 27, 1999

In a comment on my post this morning about the capture of the Boston bomber — “We Got Him” — Leather Penguin mentioned that Jeff Goldstein of Protein Wisdom “was smacking the ever-loving crap outta Sirota yesterday.” Investigating, I then discovered that David Sirota had blocked Goldstein on Twitter.

As everyone with Internet access almost certainly knows by now, David Sirota won the coveted 2013 “Douchebag of the Year” prize — it was awarded early this year, because the prize committee realized no one else could hope to compete — after writing a Salon column entitled, “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.” (Here are safe links to Robert Spencer’s reaction at Jihad Watch, and Mark Steyn’s reaction at National Review, if you don’t want to give traffic to Salon.)

We know what kind of person David Sirota is: A man whose career as a partisan political hack included getting fired for his involvement in dishonest dirty tricks aimed at a Democrat rival, a cruel and deliberate smear campaign intended to inflame racial animosity.

An infamous liar undeserving of trust, Sirota’s preferred method of “argument” is to defame people he hates — see his notorious 2011 column, “Why Many Evangelical Christians Are More ‘Un-American’ Than US Muslims” — and then to accuse them of being either too stupid or too cowardly to engage his “arguments.” Watch this four-minute clip in which Sirota, who gives every appearance of being in the grip of a bizarre psychiatric disorder, calls KOA radio host Mike Rosen a “motherf–ker” and repeatedly hectors Rosen with demands to “answer the question,” which Rosen is certainly willing and able to do, if only Sirota would stop his angry interruptions:

No honest person could admire or respect a hateful bullying liar like David Sirota. His anti-social behavior on Twitter and elsewhere is typical of Our Moral and Intellectual Superiors™ — mistaking their leftist ideology for virtue, they bask in their narcissistic self-admiration while lashing out at scapegoats onto whom they externalize blame.

Facts do not confirm their worldview, so they find themselves compelled to lie. Dishonesty becomes habitual — indeed, lying becomes integral to their identity –and when called out on their lies, they attempt to silence truth-tellers by accusing them of “hate.”

Every decent human being abhors the liar David Sirota. Many covet the prestige of being blocked by him, so do this:

  1. Send a Twitter message addressed to @DavidSirota;
  2. Include some facts about the Islamic terror attack in Boston (because David Sirota hates facts); and
  3. Include the #BlockedByDavidSirota hashtag.

He can’t block the entire Internet, although he seems determined to try.

    Someone forgot to tell that leftist jackwagon that islam is not a race, and that white people can be muslims too. Did you see about 2 weeks ago when he won the award for “Douchiest Profile on Twitter”? It was on April 4, for a pic of him doing some kind of lame-fu move which he has since taken off of his profile. So he took the pic down but I guess he wanted to keep the title of “Douchiest” so he keeps on douching it up. BTW, he looks not only douchy but also DERPY in pretty much every damned picture he has on his twitter. I am waiting to get blocked by the jackass now.

    Is David Sirota Gay? Cause that level of bullying only seems to come from the gays these days.

    Maybe he’s having a pre-out of the closet experience and he’s blindly lashing out.

    I think he needs an intervention. Or at least a conjunction.

    A meeting of the physical manifestatoin of some person’s hand and the current location of his face.

    Just to, you know, wake him the fuck up to reality.

    When you’ve become an internet joke, it’s time to reevaluate your current method of interaction with the world.

    As vile as Sirota is, the one that has me in a white hot fury is that NPR “expert” that dared link me and every conservative to Adolph Hitler.

    NPR. Taking my tax dollars to slander me. May they choke to death on their blood. In a fire.

    One need not be gay to be functionally fixated on race and crime. At the root of the rant, Sirota wanted a non-Hispanic Caucasian to be responsible for the crime. Because Sirota saw the event as a Crime, not as a terror event. And Sirota believes most crime is done by everyone but non-Hispanic Caucasian males.

    Sirota is a Race-Warrior. He wants everyone to be equal, just not, you know, really equal or he’d be out of business. Race-Warriors consider terror to be just another [justifiable] felony [when most of the victims are white], something that can argued down to a misdemeanor in a court of international law.

    As for motive: any Cypriots or bankers in the crowd or among the runners?

    Angry White Dude hasn’t been banned by Sirota yet. But I was banned by Charles Johnson a couple years back. Does that count?

    To the race warrior. only white males commit crimes. Every other act by a non-white non-male is explainable by some long past injustice or grievance and as such is forgiven and justified before even committed.

    His viciousness is reminiscent of gay rage. But I wouldn’t read too much into it. Whatever his underlying pathologies he’s one sick twisted mofo.

    Hey! The little guy did get his wish, it was a White Male. Isn’t “Caucasian” dog whistle for White, and aren’t these brothers from, like, the Caucuses? Sirota used to share a talk radio program with Mike Brown on KOA in Denver. They worked together for a couple of hours, and then take turns doing the last hour or two. I absolutely could not stand his stupidity. While he rants about White Privilege, I suspect he has benefited plenty and doesn’t want any other Whites to benefit.

    Sirota was fired after his run in with Mike Rosen. Thankfully he is off the radio. As to the question of his gayness, he claims to be married with children. Pray for those kids…

    You are quite correct that “every decent human being abhors” the likes of Sirota.

    But his target audience isn’t decent human beings, it is the ever-growing population of young people indoctrinated in government schools to despise everything that is good and decent in life.
