Troll of the Week: Biffy the Paleo Slayer

Unwarranted SmugnessAngry White Dude – by RedSlaterNYC

Question: What do you get when you cross a libtard with a libertarian?

Answer: A libtard.

Decades ago, Christopher Lasch—historian, moralist, and social critic—saw narcissism as the “signal disorder of contemporary American culture.” I believe the behavior of trolls—and the abundance of them—bears him out.  

One of the more conspicuous aspects of narcissism is hubris. And nowhere is hubris more evident than when it’s juxtaposed with sheer idiocy.

I know some arrogant pricks. But they’re smart as hell, and can layeth down an impregnable tapestry of smack like no other. Whether their arrogance reaches the level of hubris or not is debatable, but what’s not debatable is at least they can back that sh*t up.

On the other hand, enter your run-of-the-mill troll…like Biff (or the perennial Brìd). They are clearly full of themselves, convinced they have it all figured out…yet could not form a coherent line of thinking if their lives depended on it.

I caught very little of Biff’s commentary, but what I did read reminded me of one thing: how patient AWD is. If it were up to me, I would’ve dropped the banhammer on this Biff character almost immediately. I mean, you can see the suck coming from a mile away with “contributions” like this:

You can smell the fear of estrogen here
– Biff, Is Feminism the Root of All Evil?, January 27, 2013

Again: run-of-the-mill troll. Says absolutely nothing, but ever so smugly. And, sitting there comfortably in his parents’ basement, thinking so highly of his inane commentary, his stultifying combination of stupidity and conceit blinds him to the fact that he’s being constantly dismantled by anyone with half a wit. And so he’ll keep posting. And posting. And posting. And posting.

Like smog, it serves merely to pollute.

What I always find telling is that, invariably, after being banhammered, these pathetic know-it-alls claim they’re being silenced for daring to express contrarian opinions. Never does it occur to them that they’re simply being taken out with the rest of the trash (i.e., spam).

Why do we filter out spam and not allow it to clog up the commentary? Because it only detracts from meaningful, informed debate or simple, friendly conversation. Why don’t we allow idiotic, obnoxious, arrogant trolls? For the exact same effing reason.

On the other hand, nota bene the healthy divergence of views expressed on this site. It doesn’t mean dissenting views are always peaceably accepted, but it does mean that such views don’t receive the banhammer…so long as they’re intelligent and factual (and, preferably, polite).

(And a little side note to Biff, who no doubt, in his desperate need for perpetual validation, is still reading this blog: Claiming to have voted 3rd party in no way automatically exempts one from being a mindless libtard, just as voting Republican in no way automatically includes one in the conservative cause.)

But no matter. In his mind, he’s awesome. He’s got it all figured out. He’s right, and we’re wrong; he’s smart, and we’re dumb; he’s good looking and we’re…not…attractive.

Such is the way of trolls. Such is the way of libtards. Such is the way of narcissists. Such is the way of Biff.

But I repeat myself, four-fold.

    1. LOL Digger! Good one 🙂
      It seemed like a couple of weeks ago the trolls were out en masse on here. I came back on to read on a Monday and I was like wth? lol

      Troll of the week award with your favorite quote of theirs hehe!

      It would be fun, good idea 🙂

        1. Aw hell, I enjoyed Bullwinkle this morning!
          OFF TOPIC: Digger how was the weather up there? On thurs. I said that my rhurbarb was coming up and last night we had blizzard like conditions here for about an hour!
          That damn global warming is keeping me from planting my tomatos and peppers!

          1. The weather here is realy crappy and people are realy getting cabin fever. We got snow last night with temps at about 17 deg.s. Next week is not much better. lots of rain and maybe some sleet………..Yea, I`m starting to think that all I`ll be planting is potatoes. Yep I`m going to plant that sack of seeds though 🙂 I`m still going to try a garden though. we have been 20 degrees below normal all month. I never did like winter and a cold damp spring.

          2. Dang rhumstruck, it’s been in the 80’s here lately 🙂 I had to be up in Mi. during most of the winter and froze my arse off! I remember when I used to shovel the driveway in a hoodie hehe!

          1. Hey Digger, I hear ya on the cabin fever, got a staph infection on foot on way back from Mi. after Mom died (The only place I went sockfoot) going through tsa, stuck in house for the most part. Dang thing gets better then bad again. Newho, Digger I’m going to try potatoes in a built up box (So I don’t have to go digging around for the buggers hehe) so I know about where they are. I can just dig in hehe! I planted sweet potatoes a few years ago, suprised I don’t have a sweet potato tree growing out there. Maybe I do hehe! eh, I see my replies aren’t going under the right spots? Sorry, tried 🙂

        2. digger,
          I am unable to send you an email. The message says, “The account or domain may not exist, they may be blacklisted, or missing the proper dns entries.”
          I was trying to tell you that the video you sent had already been posted.

          1. Henry, Digger and I have been discussing this privately today also.
            We seem to be having the same problems. Also, it looks like you are getting slammed hard, commenting and just getting on the site today requires bulldog determination! 🙂

          2. I thought it was my computer, but see everyone else is having the same problem here. I couldn’t get here from the article links. I went to bing and put in From The Trenches, the only way could get here, got here tho 🙂

  1. awd is a crappy site. whatever limbaugh says they parrot. and don’t say anything against our most bestest ally in the M.E. or youll be called the anti semite name! the angry white dude himself called pamela gellar a BABE!! so much for his taste. as far as the name troll goes it means, whoever disagrees with the majority of posters on any particular site… I was labeled as one for using the term ZOG.. and according to their thinking im guilty as charged.. so who decides? so I’m a troll at AWD and proud of it!

    1. LOL! bargain bob, eh whatever on limbaugh. We’re just taking about on here FTT. Troll of the week would be good and fun mho. Yeah, I posted on other sites regarding immigration before they (tptb) ever started trying to pass anything. I was called a racist, this, that and every other thing. The people here can call a troll pretty quickly, I suppose if you post something trolley, ya might get troll of the week? who knows, sometimes I get on here and rant or go on….and on……about somethings, just cause I think I’m okay here saying what I think? If I get troll of the week I’ll take it in stride 🙂 and/or in good humor. I might need to check my own self and will. I love all these guys, they are good people, what more can I say?

          1. Thanks for putting up with us, RT. We’re a motley crew, to be sure, but we still know how to have a good time – especially when it comes to slamming trolls.

            I like the troll of the week idea. Copy the title of the article, along with the trolls’ comment, save them until Saturday, and then e-mail them to Henry. He’s best qualified to judge, obviously.
            Probably have to limit it to three comments max, per poster, per week. 🙂

          2. #1 reply wasn’t under your post. Motley Crew, eh I think of myself more like TON/and Creed hehe! Yeah I’m about as Motley as ya can get po’ savage me. Tuff e’nuff Fab Thunderbirds hehe! Just talking music lol!

  2. I can’t download a copy to my harddrive. This is one of those things that many should be saving before it is scrubbed from the web.
