The latest example of why The Usual Suspects continue to marginalize themselves is a post by the Grande Dame herself.
I guess some can’t bring themselves to offer the most meager condolence to another human being that has recently experienced a loss. No compassion, even for someone that you may philosophically disagree with on social issues. Someone that’s never uttered a disparaging word towards you personally.
But wait, there is an apology in the post. Yeah, something that a 14 year old might say. My Bad.
Not much of an apology, but then the post goes on to immediately criticize the bereaved because in her tweets, Ms. Sommers uses the #Gamergate tag.
Although…honestly…it’s a little sickening that she uses #Gamergate to thank her new pals. More than a little. But still, if I’d known that’s what the flowers were for I wouldn’t have posted.
Sure you would have. Because you’ve never displayed a scintilla of compassion for anyone other than your professional victim friends. None.
The final sentence punctuates this apology the best I believe.
I keep saying…Sommers used to be an academic, a philosopher. Now she’s down in the muck with Breitbart hacks. It’s pathetic.
Wow, that’s so nice. She’s still a philosopher. Just because she doesn’t teach anymore does not negate her credentials. If we were to use that as a standard, then your buddy Richard Carrier couldn’t be classified as an historian now could he?
Despicable is too nice a word to describe the hate that regularly comes from The Usual Suspects.
