In Which @PatKasprik Teaches Us That Rape ‘Satire’ Is Acceptable on Twitter

Posted on | July 6, 2014 | 82 Comments

So, @HollyRFisher did this and it went viral on Facebook:

In case you didn’t notice, that’s a Chick-fil-A cup in her hand. We are now in Day Six of the Hobby Lobby hysteria, and the Democrat Party propaganda claim that this Supreme Court decision is a theocratic right-wing assault on women’s rights is so firmly embedded in liberals’ minds that responding to them with facts and logic is a waste of time. Deliberate provocation is more fun, and the liberal reaction to Holly Fisher’s provocation was memorable. A young Floridian named Patrick Ryan Kasprik sent Fisher these Twitter messages:

“Idgaf how patriotic you think you are – you’re
a sham of an American who would strip
rights from others in the name of God.

“Hey @HollyRFisher so I was hoping you could fly on
down to Florida so we could stone you to death?
You know, religious fundamentalism…”

“But seriously @HollyRFisher come on down.
I would love to let a jackass rape you beforehand,
you know, religious fundamentalism.”

As might be imagined, Kasprik’s rhetoric inspired a lot of blowback, to which Kasprik responded: “Like most satire, the people on the receiving end really don’t get it.” This is the familiar Liberal Satire Defense: “Hahaha! Stupid wingnuts are too ignorant to comprehend the enlightened nuance of my progressive humor.”

Except (a) we understand it perfectly and (b) it’s not funny.

Of course, what Kasprik’s “jokes” were intended to invoke was another favorite liberal trope, the “American Taliban” Analogy, wherein Christian conservatives are smeared as having the same agenda as violent Islamic fundamentalists. The problem is that the two phenomena are not analogous, no matter how often or in what way liberals repeat this smear. Honor killings and other manifestations of Islamic backwardness (polygamy, child brides, burqas, etc.) have no parallel among Christian conservatives. Opposition to abortion and homosexuality, expressed through the ordinary processes of representative politics, is simply not the same thing as what the mullahs in Iran or other Islamic fanatics seek to impose through sharia law. Lumping both together under the rhetorical umbrella of “religious fundamentalism” is just dishonest.

But where would liberals be without dishonest rhetoric? And why do I have a suspicion that Patrick Ryan Kasprik will soon regret calling attention to himself and his clever “satire”?

    That’s an awful lot of whining there, Ace, for a single touch of the blade. Maybe you should wait until you grow up to play with adults, hey?

    July 7th, 2014 @ 9:52 am

    Good of you to display your cognitive dissonance so vividly. It reminds people just how fundamentally dishonest lefties are, even with themselves.

    July 7th, 2014 @ 9:55 am

    Beer is legal for adults. All the whinging and whining won’t change that, unless he’s in Colorado or Washington.

    Sucks, boy, you can try to delete your twitter feed, but all the other crap you’ve put out there is still there, for us to laugh at.

    Maybe a little pussy like yourself shouldn’t wish rape on others, if your’re not man enough to stand behind such statements?

    Who knew a seller of surf boards, named SUP ATX, would employ real life stoners with rape fantasies?

    I wonder how much it costs to rent that bitchin’ trailer?

    I wonder if Patrick Ryan Kasprik does that kind of thing on the job, at SUP ATX?

    Then who will rent you a trailer, boy?

    Apparently the boy didn’t make it, as his account has been scrubbed.

    I bet SUP ATX does now have a picture of our little snowflake’s balls, though.

    July 7th, 2014 @ 1:36 pm

    Deflection, projection, ad hominem ….. there are so many rhetorical slight-of-hands in that short sentence that someone interested in dishonest, uncivil discourse would stand in awe.

    But that’s not me. You’re just a stupid troll, and beneath contempt.

    July 7th, 2014 @ 1:38 pm

    Oopsies! If true, Herr AceOfSwords might want to adjust its faux outrage accordingly.

    That’s the wrong way to do it man, because if you’re information is not correct you could be bringing doom unto an innocent bystander.
    Remember Spike Lee’s attempt at distributing George Zimmerman’s address?

    Now, if someone deduces for themself where he works and what kind of car he drives, from something like Facebook for example, then c’est la vie…

  24. MNHawk
    July 7th, 2014 @ 6:56 pm

    Now if one google maps that address, street views it, finds out that it matches the pic of the car on our little feral friend’s Facebook page…

    That address is listed on his address record. Seems he has a history with minors.

  25. tyler520
    July 7th, 2014 @ 7:20 pm

    I’ve cross referenced the address through 3 different government sources; unlike Spike Lee, I know how to access and verify this information

    This isn’t directed at you but it seems a good place to make a point or two.

    Publishing home addresses online is wrong.
    The guy is a schmuck, no doubt, and deserves to have heaped upon him every bit of derision and mockery the we can douse him with.
    What is not needed is for some kook to walk up to his door and somebody gets hurt or worse.

    Want to make this guy’s life miserable? As a consumers, we call this guy’s employer and voice
    our concern over the negative publicity being drawn toward his company.

    See this guy on the street? Mock him and embarrass him in front of his friends.

    What shouldn’t happen is for anyone to commit a crime or be an accessory to one over this little turd of a human being.

    All that said…
    If I hear tomorrow that something happened to this lad I’m not going feel sorrow for him. We reap what we sow.

    That doesn’t make it right man.

    Part of this online community we share has to have some kind of ethics.

    Posting personal information about people without their consent just ain’t right- no matter how bad the other guy might be.

    Seriously? Dude’s got to be at least thirty. Neither of those girls is much over thirteen or fourteen.

    Yes, yes, we know. Morality police, fascist, etc. I’m sure you’d be just as cool with it if they were your daughters, right?

    I would normally agree with you when it’s just a debate of ideas.


    The line is already crossed with threats and or wishes of violence, as well as the fact that if you google his name, his arrest record is about the first hit. His address has long been out there.

  31. cmdr358
    July 8th, 2014 @ 5:12 pm

    I understand your point.
    We’ll have to agree to disagree agreeably on that one point (address publishing) .
    At least we’ve a consensus that he’s a worthless little shit.

    Rape is a devastating crime.. Some women are badly injured. Some become pregnant. Some contract HIV. But the emotional trauma can be worse than any physical injury.. I want to share this with you guys it is a really helpful stuff when it comes to incidents like this..
