Prediction: 2014 Will Be Even Crazier

Posted on | January 1, 2014 | 11 Comments

The spiraling descent into insanity continues:

Egyptian Astrologer Warns: In 2014, Saturn
Enters Sagittarius, Making Jews Stronger

You’re not really paranoid unless you fear your scapegoat — on whom you blame all your problems — is becoming more powerful. This is why Media Matters and Think Progress and MSNBC exist, to play upon the fears of leftists by telling them the dreaded right-wing conspiracy is secretly scheming against them (which, of course, we are).

The past year was crammed full of dangerous unpredictable craziness and never mind the fact that I’m getting sued for $1 million by a convicted bomber. A glance through the archive of my columns at The American Spectator reflects the widespread insanity:

That’s not even a complete list, but merely a few highlights of the escalating intensity of Fear and Loathing during 2013. That list doesn’t even include the cartoon vagina that aims to eradicate the “cultural stigma” against masturbation.

And, of course, 2013 was the year I got sued by a convicted bomber. My co-defendant John Hoge recaps the highlights of craziness from Team Kimberlin and, I should point out, Brett Kimberlin contends that it is defamation merely to assert the existence of Team Kimberlin because . . . Well, because he’s crazy.

My co-defendant Ali Akbar ended 2013 by apologizing for being mean:

I was forced to wonder why this odd group of folks, some friends, had assembled to come against me. Why even waste the time? Many of these people have directly benefitted from some of the charitable work I’ve done.
Two friends helped me come to the conclusion: I’m a mean person.

This is like rain apologizing for being wet. Ali wakes up in the morning and smites half a dozen enemies before breakfast. I’ve tried to warn him of the importance of keeping one’s Enemies List short.

You can’t declare war on People Who Merely Get On Your Nerves, because some of those people could be useful allies in your war against People Who Deliberately Fucked You Over. And even some of the People Who Deliberately Fucked You Over might be helpful in future conflicts with Worthless Scum Who Should Die.

Success in life does not consist in plotting revenge against an ever-lengthening list of enemies, but rather in being so helpful to your friends that everybody wants to be your friend — except Worthless Scum Who Should Die, and everybody hates them anyway.

    Beware! This guy found out his ISP was hijacking DNS traffic for the purpose of injecting their affiliate id into web requests like Amazon and others. This would come directly at the expense of you and anyone else that promotes their own affiliation.

    Well, yeah, but it’s in self-defense.

    Not only is that a cartoon vulva, but it appears to be an infant cartoon vulva.

    These people are as childish as they are stupid.

    And incidentally, there’s no cultural stigma against female masturbation that I am aware of. There is one against doing it in public. Is that what these people want?

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    If I had a vulva, I’d be a rich man.

    How? You’d never have time to work and earn a living.

    Great. Here comes the excuses.

    “Hey, the NSA does it all the time!”

    This is some serious bad faith service. It’s bad enough when hackers break stuff, but the entire “trust” aspect of the web relies totally on the ISP’s.
