Thank you, Thank you!

Thank you, cowardly anonymous commenters for so perfectly proving my point about your thuggish and abusive and yet oh-so-timid nature. More than anything it’s clear you can dish it out, but you can’t take it. So many of you act like little playground crybabies when you’re the target of criticism, SO upset that your self-evident cowardice is being exposed. It made me laugh over and over again.

By the way some of you seem to have reading comprehension difficulties as well and missed the point that it is the hostile abusive commenters whose anonymity I was calling cowardly –  not the ordinary commenter who disagrees. Talk back all you want but don’t be so infantile and timid that you won’t use your own name when you’re sounding so bold and brave and bullying.

And in addition many seemed to have trouble grasping the concept that I already put my name behind my opinions, I already “practice what I preach”. All I’m asking you cowardly bullies to do is to have the courage to put your name behind your opinions. Of course, since so many of you are so fearful of the very idea, it’s more than likely you’d falsify your names, and so I threw out the idea that one way of verifying your identity would be including a phone number, not to be published, but so that the idea of random checks would inhibit you from smuggling in your frothings under someone else’s real name. Believe me I have no desire to talk to you on the phone. As it is I see little characterological difference between anonymous commenter abusers and the anonymous phone call perverts.

And speaking of character, I have to admit I didn’t think my already low opinion of the anonymous commenter coward could sink any lower until I realized there were actual pro-Nazi anti-Semites among you. Here’s an example. Tell me are you proud to be associated with this commenter:

“I know your name. Callate la boca.

Ihr name ist Jud Süss, ein mitglied der Ewige Jude.

Sie sind ein Troll, schweinehunde. Ihre vorfahren leider entkam Eichmann”.

How many of you are going to write in to dissociate yourselves from this Eichmann-lover (and he–or she–isn’t the only one). How any of your are going to wonder how it feels being in such close communion with a sicko like that. Why is he on your side? Why are you on his side?

I haven’t gotten through all the comments,so this is my first reaction to a sampling. I’m enjoying the dish it out/can’t take it responses so much it will take me a while and I reserve, as I’ve repeatedly said on this blog, the right not to post abusive, bigoted comments especially when they are (as they almost always are) cowardly anonymous spittle flecked effusions. But be patient, I could feature yours in my next post on the subject.

Thanks also for demonstrating what profiles in courage you are, those of you who are afraid of attaching your name to your insults because someone in your business or your neighborhood might identify you. I wonder what would happen if you all stood up for yourself and showed you were proud of your views rather than crouched in dark corners throwing spitballs and then ducking behind the cupboard. You know the famous saying of Patrick Henry*: I guess for you it’s “Give me liberty or give me a witless screen name I can hide behind.” Anyway, anyone who doesn’t have the self-respect to put his name behind his abusive insults, is, and always will be, a coward in my book.

  1. You still won’t debate any substantial points raised by your commenters — just sneer at them from your posts.

    You’re the coward, trying to live in the old ivory tower of the one-way mainstream media. A dinosaur mocking the petty upstart mammals.

    It is enjoyable to watch your establishment crash and burn.

  2. There’s a big wide world out there. Perhaps we could all change the subject? Barack in Egypt, Westminster expenses, auto meltdown, China=Brazil currency deal, fire Pelosi, is Obama embarassed by Biden, bats in “The New Yorker”, Dylan’s 68th and new album, Bloomy flu, Paki nukes, sultans of Swat, goodbye newspapers, hello inflation, will Cheney collapse on tour, Bill Clinton to Supreme Court?, Panetta going native at Langley, new Dow bubble, lemur link, goodbye Times

  4. Ron, what about the thread of commenters who suggest that screen names operate as a filter — we can still be easily connected as actual people to our actual opinions, but may not want our on-line opinionating to be the first thing people learn about us?

    There is, in my view, a big difference between wanting to have a filter, a bit of control of the nozzle on the firehose that is the internet, and wanting to have a wall over which one can throw nameless firebombs in witless anger.

    I think there’s a big, big difference between that desire to have a bit of control over circumstance and Anonymnauts who fling Jud Suss and other pieces of monkey poo around with abandon. It just doesn’t seem to be a fine, subtle distinction.

  5. “My theory is that it’s not the politics but the anonymity that is the cause o the devolution.”

    I have long argued that the host of a blog should demand the names of all posters. They can remain anonymous to the world—but not to the blogger. I use my real name, but I can readily understand why others don’t. Sometimes it can hurt them professionally.

    “Why is he on your side? Why are you on his side?”

    I speak only for myself. The United States had to ally itself with the Soviet Union during WWII. Sometimes these awkward relationships are required. The trick is knowing when to draw the line. I also agree with Adolph Hitler about not smoking and being nice to dogs. It would not be sensible to start smoking four packs of cigarettes daily and torturing puppies to prove that I’m not a Nazi.

  7. This is ridiculous. Why the hell is this boar of a man allowed to write articles on this site? It’s turning into the Huffington Post or Daily Kos. What’s next? Are you going to write articles encouraging Republicans to steal Obama yard signs next election or invite a senior Al Queda leader to weigh-in on what he thinks about our foreign policy? One of the great things I admired about conservative blogs is that they didn’t hire sensationalist nutjobs who are the political equivalent of Perez Hilton to write “drama articles” to spice things up and attract the “younger” viewers. If I wanted to see that kind of garbage I’d visit one of those trash sites. Please don’t allow Pajamas Media to turn into a tabloid conservative blog. Fire this bafoon or we’ll stop visiting. Please don’t make the mistake of tolerating these “troll” writers because you think they’ll increase vistors to your site. You’d be destroying an extremely amazing conservative blog and resource.

  9. After looking through Ron’s articles it seems that he was hired for “diversity” purposes to express the liberal point of view. I don’t have a problem with Pajamas Media hosting liberal writers in the name of balance and open-mindedness but this liberal is just ridiculous. I almost want him to stay now so he can fulfill the perfect caricature of the deranged liberal. It’s like the old saying goes: “I fully support Neo-Nazis rights to free speech. They’ll only further prove how crazy they are.” So I’ve now changed my mind and fully support keeping this liberal nutter on board here at Pajamas Media. Enjoy your stay! I even have a tip for the topic of your next article: “Anal sex and why you should try it with members of your own gender – a progressives perspective.”

  10. This weird joker, hiding away as he is behind that mess of hair all over all sides and on the bottom of his head, may not be the best Don Quixote his “side” might have tilt at the New Media’s unassailable superiority over the old.

    And, because he has always insisted that I go to his page to read his ostensibly PJM-posted rantings, I’ve tended to give him a miss. As I give a miss to every other of the ludicrous Left’s buggy-whip-media morons: to every Peter Rather, Ted Jennings and Dan Koppel-like propagandist, polemicist and pamphleteer.

    But today something about his ridiculous assertion about anonymity turning free expression into digital lynch mobs caught my eye.

    And I exposed myself a bit of his pathetic projectile projection of the fasciSSocialist psychopathology. Even read at it, that is. Until he got to the part about some modified Marxist lover of the modified Marxist, Eichmann and I being on the “same side.”

    And there — and for all of time — I quit.

    For notwithstanding he cannot stand to see his own projected psychopathology mirrored in his eMail — and needs scapegoats for how that makes him feel — no Goebbelsesque modified-Marxist propagandist and pamphleteer for the self-and-own-culture-loathing mobbed-up Mussolini-modeled modified Marxist murtadd Muslim sinister Soros-supported and Alinsky/Svengali-operated empty-galabia glove-puppet fuhrer: — for he, that is, of the hoards of thugs and army of brown-shirt supporters, who currently so squalidly besquats and bemanures my America’s once most hallowed house; — will ever have my permission to pick my team’s members.

    So, Herr Rosenbaum, PJM’s answer to TownHall’s as-execrable Kathleen Parker: Get lost!

    (And, as about 30 seconds with the Los Angeles County/California State voters register will confirm, there’s nothing anonymous about me!)

  13. Mr. Rosenbaum:
    “Thank you, cowardly anonymous commenters for so perfectly proving my point about your thuggish and abusive and yet oh-so-timid nature.”

    You trolled your commeneters and you got flamed for it.

    That was your point?

    I have to agree with Rashputin…what did you expect?

    “Cumulatively from the comments I elicited, self defined conservatives are a sea of savages without values, literacy, and especially without a sense of responsibility. Sone of them admitted to wanting to commit criminal acts against me. By the way, my attack on anonymous cowards in the commentariat extended to the commenters on liberal blogs as well.”

    Gee, Ron, thanks for being so fair-minded about it…in the 10th freaking paragraph!

    Go “troll conservative” on a Liberal blog for an equal amount of time and see how many death threats you collect.
    Go on.

    “How many of you are going to write in to dissociate yourselves from this Eichmann-lover (and he–or she–isn’t the only one). How any of your are going to wonder how it feels being in such close communion with a sicko like that.”

    Miamaman decided to take a swat at your heritage rather than your opinions, and did it in a way that’s beyond the pale.
    I’d say congratulations to you for unmasking an anti-semite, only I’ve been around the internet long enough to have run across “screen Nazis” who were actually nice Jewish kids doing some “false-flagging” for the ADL.

    So I wouldn’t “sack-dance” too much until you establish that this chap isn’t one such.

    “Then there’s the conservative belief in the “values” of civilization and not “defining deviance down”.”

    Do you know how an Einsatzgruppe worked, Ron?

    In all likelihood, after the first few guys started shooting, the rest found it easier to go along, then everyone got into the swing of things, and then executing innocent people became the new “normal”.

    Without outside influence, the only way to stop that from happening would be for enough of the “in-group”, (that would be the guys in uniform with the rifles), to call out the shooters as the murderers that they were.

    The commander wouldn’t do it, since he had a vested interest in the executions proceeding as planned, and we can probably safely assumed that the targets would register their own objections. But both the commander and the victims were outsiders, and civility could and can only be enforced by the in-group.

    So I’ll take a pass at joining YOUR firing squad against Miamaman, because I also will not be joining HIS einsatzgruppe against you, see?
    If I’m shooting anyone, it will be for my own personal reasons.

    “Why is he on your side? Why are you on his side?”

    What “side” is he on? He or she is an anonymous commenter on a blog, f’Chrissakes!

    For that matter, what “side” are YOU on as a Leftist? Are you out there marching against the IDF’s operations against Hamas and Hezbollah?

    Probably not…you’re just a commenter on a blog, too.

    Neither of you are on “my side”. I don’t like what I know of his politics, and I don’t much like what I know of yours.

    The only “side” we all share is that we’re all internet @ssholes.

    Welcome to the club…coffee pot’s in the corner.

    As soon as Pajamas Media starts paying me for my comments like you get paid for your posts, I’ll put my name on them. This is a stupid hangup you have. If some stranger starts taunting you in a bar, do you demand to know his name first? Do you scream back at him, “I’m Ron Rosenbaum and you’re a coward for not telling me your name!”?

  18. Ron, you are one of history’s great men, and one of the bravest ever known. Phew! Now that we got that out of the way.

    At the risk of proving some sort of point in what I suspect is a disorganized & possibly hysterical mind, don’t wet yourself Ron I said possibly, your language and reasoning are at least as bad as that which you fault.

    I take it that you haven’t indulged in the left wing sites. If you wish too observe filth up close I suggest you do so.
    And for a brave fellow like yourself it is curious that you don’t respond to any,repeat any, of the posts that answer you.
    It is also quite dull of you to equate all bloggers together, as being equally abusive. A normal human mind is designed to make distinctions, to note differences. It appears you lack this basic human facility.

    I’ll cut it short, time is limited on lost causes. But Ron I assume you have access to the E mail address we are required to list, you being a contributor to the site. So again, and in the spirit of the bravery you so much admire, I invite you to e mail me directly .
    Not afraid are you Ron?

  21. If I did not think that the overwhelming close minded liberal establishment within the acting community would hold my conservative opinions against me, I would use my full name. However, as you might know, to be a conservative in the arts is career suicide. If liberals had any tolerance whatsoever for an opposing view this point would be moot.

  22. Apparently irony is lost on some of those who immediately leave sneering anonymous comments! I must note that this is not a trait of conservatives nut jobs alone; surely you must realize that Daily Kos and DU have their share. I consider myself a conservative, but agree completely with you on this point. we cannot ever address teh problems of the day if the two opposing views treat each other as heretics who must be burned at the stake instead of converted on the merits of the opposing view.

  23. Am I proud to be associated with pro-Nazi commentators? Why am I being associated with him/her? Aren’t we all entitled to our own opinions here? It’s presumptuous to lump everyone together under a conservative umbrella. You claim non-conservative status like it’s a badge of honor. Why not allow others here to classify themselves also?You are proving yourself to be no different than liberal posters here than label all Republicans bible belters, Christian, neo-cons, etc, etc, etc.

    As to why most of us continue to use monikers and not real names, you are doing this as your job, most of us have other livelihoods that aren’t as forgiving of our opinions as yours. Smugness has never been a quality I’ve admired in journalists.

  29. Can I share an uplifting story? Like ta hear it? Hear it go!

    Well, yesterday I was feeling uber isolated since my husband has been having to work every day just to make ends meet and my only child being gone too makes my lonliness especially painful. So, I was looking through one of my drawers and found the post-card from my next door neighbor I had saved.

    It reads:

    Dear Angel, Shalom!

    It’s me, Sharon. I’m in Israel. This is where I live overseas at Papa’s house. I forgot to ask you to take all of the plums and apples you want! There ar also some raspberries and rhubarb in the garden. You are in my prayers and I hope to see you when I get home. You are a very lovely Angel. Thank you. Love, Sharon. P.s. This is where Jesus walked on water!
    ~

    I read and re-read that and decided to ask her to come over and visit me for tea. Boy, did we have a blast! This adorable Christian Jewish woman is my new BFF! WHOOT! I gave her a ‘make-over’ in my bathroom even. LOL! We had so much fun. She’s much older than I but we are like to school-girls together. We both laughed over the fact that we’ve been neighbors for well over 15 years and it took us this long to get connected. 😆

    So, there’s my positive story for the day.

    Reach out to those around you.

    I’m bringing her some raw honey and the rest of her Dead Sea water she shared with me so I gotta ski-daddle.

    Love & Light,

  32. Wow…clearly I’ve missed some good action over the last couple weeks…I would say I have some liberal values, but am probably more conservative…I find alot of liberals offensive given their misdirection style of communication i.e. always changing the context of any question asked…(Barney Frank comes to mind). I always thought journalists and the like(politicians?) couldn’t handle the rigor and of a math science curriculum, and am constantly reinforced in this opinion, when I see the gamesman like use of language in their work. I have come to the belief that true liberals aren’t really liberals, and those that hit this site are just baiting. Maybe that’s what Ron experienced from the ‘other side’. As for today’s jouranlists, it seems that everything is either black or white. Kind of like the position on global warming…it’s either CO2 or it’s not. Nothing is that simple. We just make it that way to feel we understand it.

  34. Dear Ron,

    Your response to the commenters responses did not include anything about the safety issue.

    It’s fairly easy to ferret out information about people via google and other search engines. Common sense tells me it isn’t a good idea to put my real name on my responses. I don’t want to be cyber stalked or bullied by someone who disagrees with me.

    Not only that, but I am offering my wise judgement and opinion for free. When I start getting paid to write, THEN I’ll include my name so that it can be clearly written on my paycheck.

    I think a healthy dose of paranoia is a good idea, under the right circumstances. And posting my real name is one of those circumstances.

    Thank you for letting me offer my two cents,

    M. Chavis <—- my real last name … once.

    You know, “Glenn Jericho” over at Hot Air is right…you DO bear a strong resemblance to Danny Bonaduce.

    If you see Mr. Bonaduce, tell him I enjoy his work.

    Unless you really ARE Danny Bonaduce, and “Ron Rosenbaum” is just a pseudonym to maintain your anonymity.

    I’d totally understand, who would buy a book about Hitler written by the actor who played “Danny Partridge”?
    …as unfair as that might be.

  41. A few scattered thoughts in passing…

    It is interesting to see a columnist trolling for comments.

    If it works for Sullivan, eh…

    If the point is to expose the inanity of idealogues, whatever their stripe, well, that works for me.

    (These days, Ron Paul is the only politician or political commentator who’s making any sense, and in many ways, that’s kinda scary.)

    As for doing the whole Alinsky thing with your readers? Good luck with that. Of course, that’s what those anonymous conservative readers have been doing to you, so turn about, I suppose.

    (Yes, Dems use Alinksy’s tactics, but at least they’re honest about it.)

  44. A couple of points.

    1. Anti-Semitism is mostly a phenomena of the Left, see Daily Kos or Huffington Post for examples, then go to say Ace of Spades or Hot Air where strong support for Israel is the rule.

    2. Those Liberals label “conservatives” who are anti-Semites are not conservatives at all, but rather the Pat Buchanon/Ron Paul nutcases who espouse isolationism and many Hard Left policies beloved of Liberals. The Liberal love for Paul and the Ronulans, and Pat Buchanon’s “Hitler Nostalgia” books and speeches, is of course self-evident.

    Liberals largely agree with Paul and Buchanon’s desire to see Israel “exterminated” just watch Helen Thomas in the White House Press Room ask “why?” America doesn’t help destroy Israel.

    3. I don’t think you object to Liberal anti-semitism of the Helen Thomas, Samantha Power (“Let’s invade Israel for Hamas”) or Susan Rice variety. Much less the infamous (and LAT suppressed tape) of Obama and Wife attending the Rashid Khalidi going away party (where Obama and his wife both laughed on camera about anti-semitic statements and made a few of their own).

    You only wish to use the Pat Buchanon types to bash the real, mainstream, Israel-supporting Conservatives (such as Sarah Palin, and other Evangelicals who support Israel strongly).

    Let’s get real.

    4. Finally, anonymity is vital for conservatives because Liberals have constructed a McCarthyist blacklist. Miss California, Joe the Plumber, and other ordinary people who merely expressed their opinion had the Media (the paid, info-Storm Troops of Liberalism and their God, Obama) dig into every potentially embarrassing aspect of their lives to smear them. Just as the Lapdog Media followed Obama’s orders to dig into personal lives of Chrysler Senior Bondholders and publicize embarrassing things unless the bondholders gave up their contractural rights under the law.

    As the paid, “following orders” propaganda corps for Obama (who you no doubt like the rest of the media worship as your Living God) you object to any pretense of anonymity and private life to ordinary people who hold opinions different than your rigid Liberal Orthodoxy.

    It’s why you and the Liberal media went on a witch-hunt for supporters of Prop. 8 and got them fired: A Restaurant manager in West Hollywood, a theater director in Sacramento, the LA Film Festival director.

    So please, drop the hypocrisy and at least admit it: you are here as a media enforcer to dig up whatever slimy things you can about any average joe who doesn’t follow your lockstep dogma.

    And that’s all there is too it.

  45. Trying this again… somehow it appears to have been overlooked in the moderation queue…

    Certainly anonymity makes it easier for people to say irresponsible things in comments. You have a point, but I hope you will flesh it out more rigorously in the essay you are writing about commenter culture.

    Waving the neo-Nazi in our faces is just silly. It’s a classic guilt-by-association tactic, and it’s no more valid coming from the left than from the right. As I’ve written in a different context, “Don’t Blame Me for Rush Limbaugh, I Won’t Blame You for Michael Moore.” (And no, I’m not saying either Limbaugh or Moore is as bad as a neo-Nazi.)

  49. From the comments on these sites, it would seem that most Conservatives actually do believe in a ‘Living Constitution.’

    …and just so ya know…the Founding Fathers were…uh…quite liberal. In the classical sense. They weren’t what we think of today as “Democrats’ or Republicans’ or ‘conservatives’ or ‘progressives.’

    Most so-called conservatives today actually delight in government interference in other people’s lives just as much as the progressives delight in the same. After they invoke the government to control the lives of others, both sides sit around in wonder… and bitterly complain about what has happened to their own freedoms.

  55. I think that Delia is on to something (#46). There’s been a rash of people with apparent multiple personalities. Since this site doesn’t register commenters, you have no way to be sure that anyone is who they say they are.

    Ron, I think you’re way off base here. Ever heard of a Moby a.k.a false flag commenter? The more outlandish the “conservative” comment, the more likely that it was made by a leftist.

    This is just an inherent feature (or bug, if you will) of a site without registration. Your attempt to blame it on “conservatives” is below the belt and meritless.

    If you want to blame anyone, blame the site moderators who let that kind of crap through. That’s the only control that exists on this site, and it does seem like there’s not much that gets filtered out.

    I find it utterly eery and frightening creepy that Ron would nail someone to the cross without being SURE of just WHO he was nailing.

    If the I.P. address of the email matches up with MiamMan’s I.P. he posts under on PJM, then nuff said, but, without that proof, Ron has become the Judge, Jury and Executioner.

  59. I’ve figured it out. This is clearly a cry for help. He probably came to Pajamas Media expecting to just waltz in and browbeat all of us “inbred redneck conservatives” since that’s how leftists honestly view all Republicans. I should know since I used to be a leftist that embarassingly viewed Republicans that way not too long ago. Problem is he found out-just like I did-that most conservatives are far more intelligent, widely read and rational than he ever imagined and especially so compared to your average ignorant leftist looney who watches a Michael Moore movie and now thinks they understand the world. So he frustratingly can’t just write some BS liberal articles on here-like he does at the other lefty sites he blogs at-without being thoroughly challenged and discredited by the brilliant conservative commenters on this site. So now he’s throwing a hissy fit about conservatives not using their real names when they comment online and is hilariously trying to use that as proof that conservatives are all chicken-hawks who don’t really believe in self-responsibility. It’s an obvious attempt to get himself fired and impress his lefty friends by going out with a bang. I say whoever is in charge around here should oblige him and put him out of his misery. And I think I’m speaking for 99% of the vistors on this site.

  60. Ron,
    Some of the worst abuse can be found on Left-wing blogs here in the UK : the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK; the Guardian Comment is Free — bloggers known as ‘CiFers’ — and the Independent. As soon as a Jewish or even mildly pro-Israel writer is given column space the anti-Jewish bloggers erupt and the floodgates open. The distinguished British novelist Howard Jacobson wrote a piece a few weeks ago for the Indy and the blog-hate that poured out blew me away. Occasionally I offer a comment to combat the anti-Semites on the Guardian blog as ‘Carol G,’ but the moderator usually deletes me for ‘abuse.’ LOL!

    That is a very valid reason for posting anonymously on blogs. Also, whether you already have a job or are seeking one, if you are conservative in your opinions you will be found. Companies do troll the blog world to see if a job applicant has left something there they can evaluate. So, it is a major faux pas to not post anonymously. You would be amazed at how conservatives are outnumbered in the corporate world these days. HR types who screen applicants are typically female and liberal-Left. If you are stupid enough to post your full name and you are caught, well, you have only yourself to blame when you don’t get that second or third interview.

    I told myself, “NEVER AGAIN”. Now, if I sink to a low where I feel I’m slipping over the edge I immediately call someone or reach out rather than being ashamed of my dark moods.

    You might be suffering and I shouldn’t have joked so much. I was just trying to lighten the mood but after I thought about things, I started to worry about you.

  86. Sorry, I just don’t buy your argument. To me it is like anonymous voting, a protection from those who might want to intimidate someone or their loved ones because of their opinion or who they choose to elect.

    Those who use a computer and the internet should at this point know that there footprints are practically impossible to erase, and if they use their computer to threaten someone or plan an illegal act against someone it will be traced to their computer and it’s contents could be used to prosecute them.

    If you write a opinion and are open to comments, then it would be expected that some commenter’s would be abusive. If monitoring the comments are becoming too time consuming or monetarily impossible, then I guess it would be an option to make people register with there full name and only email accounts that are acceptable.

    Although I see there are some abusive commenter’s, overall I think this site Pajamas Media is quite tame and civilized. Even people who use anonymous screen names can be shamed when someone calls them on a comment, and I have read where they even apologize for going overboard.

    I have to admit that sometimes I find the names people give themselves are sometimes funny and sometimes interesting and sometimes even a good description of their opinions and I would miss their ability to name themselves.

    I also agree with the others that the comment you wrote doesn’t match other comments I have read by ‘miami man’ but if you google the name ‘miami man’ it seem he is up to much mischief such as; indited, accused, charged, sentenced. In fact in one instance his skeletal remains were found so he could in fact be dead. Sorry my sick attempt at humor.

    Anyway, I think it is possible on this site to use someone’s else’s name to leave a comment and it is possible that the one you sited for ‘miami man’ is not by the commenter we are used to reading. Even if people used their ‘real’ names someone could comment under that name just to agitate and ruin their reputation unless you had some security feature that would prevent this from happening.

  90. Mornin’ back, Meryl! Yes, I think someone missed the ‘memo’ about the barbecue… Only baby back ribs and fresh shucked corn. Mmmmmmmm. I want my baby back, baby back, baby back ribbbbbbbbs.

    Well, MiamiMan just informed me on another thread that he’s been banned by Ron from being able to respond here. Soooooo, I’m posting what he wrote on a different thread in response to mine:

    80. MiamaMan:

    Delia:

    Thanks, here is a copy of the post I am trying to post in that thread, to no avail so far, just for your information, as you deserve it:

    [Delia:

    Achtung! Thanks for calling me back to the thread. Ha, ha, ha, somebody screwing me up?

    I never thought I would be so important for Herr Rosenbaum to write about me. I am unemployed, Mr. Rosenbaum may be you want to share what you made with the article about me with me, believe me it is needed.

    Delia, yes, Herr Rosenbaum is correct, I am the one who sent to his post the hateful email in Spanish and German to “vivo”, but it was really to call Herr Rosenbaum’s attention. It sure worked. I have always suspected “vivo” is from my neighborhood here in Miama. As for “callate la boca”, in Spanish means simply “shut up”.

    I was trying to post to no avail, and thought that Mr. Rosenbaum was blocking my posts, so guessing he was Jewish, I said to myself, let me tease “vivo” with some historical German facts, to really catch Rosenbaum. It sure worked. I guess the whole thing was a matter of “cookies” in the computer. It happened to me on another thread.

    Herr Rosenbaum, my apologies, I am not anti-Semite, nor glorify Nazis, on the contrary, I am the guy in contact with Thomas Blatt (Sobibor survivor) who is now in Germany for the Demjamjuk trial, and a student of the “Aktion Reinhard” part of the Shoa. Nor I am an Eichmann lover, on the contrary.

    Yes, Delia, it is me, I can be sarcastic as hell sometimes, I am far from perfect. I am sorry to disappoint you. I am also prone to make fun of people since I was a little kid. I got some bad Karma coming, I guess.

    I sure chose the right bad combination. Those 2 hateful movies sponsored by Goebbels, the remake of “Jud Suss”, and the terrible creation of the “Ewige Jude”.

    Herr Rosenbaum, with that Mephistophelian face he exhibits on the picture here on Pajamas, sure did not take it lightly.

    Moogie, what the German part says?:
    [Ihr name ist Jud Süss, ein mitglied der Ewige Jude. Sie sind ein Troll, schweinehunde. Ihre vorfahren leider entkam Eichmann’”.]

    No, I can’t translate it, it is too nasty, this only comes out good in German.

    So, as a final apology, I say to Herr Rosenbaum:

    Ich bitte Sie, meine entschuldigung von ganzem Herzen!

    Ich wollte mich nicht zu verletzen können.

    Bitte verzeihen sie meine dummheit!]
    ~

    If Ron bans me for posting MiamiMan’s response, so be it. I’m just trying to keep things honest and at least MiamiMan owned up to his words.

    I have no idea what the last line reads. Anyone good at speaking German because those free online translators suck poo.

  91. his name is “sweet Jew”, a mix with the “eternal Jew” You’re a troll, a**hole. your ancestry unfortunately missed Eichmannn (rules)

    I would like to apologize with my full heart
    I didn’t want to let me go to hurt anyone

    Please forgive me my idioty

  93. 94. Marie Claude,

    Thank you, Marie C. Here is MiamiMan’s translation too:

    “As for my last quote in German to him, here is the translation:

    Ich bitte Sie, meine entschuldigung von ganzem Herzen!
    Please accept my apologies from the bottom of my heart!

    Ich wollte mich nicht zu verletzen können.
    My intention was not to hurt you.

    Bitte verzeihen sie meine dummheit!
    Please forgive my stupidity!”
    ~

    I like Ron and MiamiMan and I don’t know them ‘personally’ but I find both likable.

    I hope you two bury the hatchet because I honestly don’t think either of you know each other well enough to waste your energies on anger. Miami man has tried to apologize to you, Ron and you’ve blocked him from doing so. I find that highly disingenuous of you and disappointing and I honestly want to believe that you have more character than that.

    I have a kazillion character flaws and I’ll be the first to jump up, stumble over my two left ballerina feetz and admit it.

    Anyone need a hug? *raises hand feebly* I’m pooped!

    You already covered the whole ‘mustard’ bait, sheeshers. How about some pulled pork? I’m sure you’re an expert at that recipe.

    ROTFL! Okay, that was funny, sheeshers! Thank you for the giggle. I needed that.

    BTW, one of my new favorite mustards is the ‘Inglehoffer Wasabi’ mustard. It is sooo good (but, beware, a leeeeeetle goes a lawngggg way)! Of course, it’s excellent on Sashimi and Sushi. Great! Now I’m craving sushi. Mmmmmmmmm. My tummy just lurched.

    Bilge, sheesh was actually playing nice today…which means he’s probably got a big one brewing and one of us is gonna get the full-on Stanley Steemer treatment.

    Tic-toc.

    In all honesty though, sheesh is kinda growing on me, I know, I know, I promise to have my Dermatologist take a gander at that next visit.

    Ruin a good laugh? Oh c’mon sheesh! Bilge was playing right along with what YOU started. Condiment for a weenie in your mouth? What part of that wasn’t funny? I thought it was hilarious! I think you’re funny too when you’re not being outright nasty (as in mean, not potty humor which, yes, I appreciate and I own that).

    Where is Ron? He missed me flashing my boobies on his thread evennnnnnnnn.

  103. 102. Delia . . . “Condiment for a weenie in your mouth? What part of that wasn’t funny? ”

    I’ll tell ya exactly . . . actually two things. First, it’s predictable and cliche . . . like saying “I’d rather have a root canal.” There’s no surprise to it. No insight. It’s formulaic. Second, it comes from BM3K, which means it’s tainted with a bit of the old creepy/pervy . . . a little too real, a little too specific and knowing, which is typical references to various oralympics. Now, I admit I lure him in with words like “taint,” so I suppose his predictability is partly my fault. But funny? No, I can’t say I agree with you on that.

    You, however, can be funny . . . though you have to be careful about the “root canal” syndrome, too, as evidenced by your dermatologist gag. Again, formulaic and, frankly, not up to some of your other work. Keep it fresh. Don’t stop at the first thought. For example, instead of using the dermatologist thing, you could have taken it one step further and said, “I gotta get that sheesh lanced.” . . . same zone (and still a little too familiar for my tastes) but with better imagery.

    What can I say, it’s the little things. (Easy BM3K, I know you’re tempted.)

    If you’ll recall, your “tastes” ARE the issue, and you brought up the subject.

    So the question is valid…what condiments DO you use on your weenies?

    Or maybe you prefer them between your buns.

    “But funny? No,”

    C’mon, blog-slave…even Mr. Rosenbaum is suppressing a chuckle. Look at the smirk on his mug in his picture up there…

    LOL! Indeed, Meryl! I see you’re a fan of the movie, “The Jerk” too! *giggles* I hope you had a wonderful day today. I’m so tired. I worked out really hard two days in a row and now my body is recovering and kickin’ me in the backside for trying to re-build Rome in two days.

    Sheeshers, you mentioned ‘barbecue’ and then ‘mustard’ and Bilge mentioned ‘weenies’. Bilge was hardly out of line with where he took that. Honestly, I think his reply to you was funnier than mine. C’mon. Give one up for the Bilge. Sheesh, if we weren’t such polar opposites politically, we’d probably make a killing as a stand-up comedy act. -But, let’s not start being nice to each other because it’s very hard to say mean stuff when you begin to warm up to someone or even *gasp* start likin’ ’em. Gawd for bid right? *sneaks you a hug*

    I’m just tired of fightin’ with OOMO/Sheesh/etc.

    He’s said some pretty mean and hurtful things to me but I’m just as guilty when it comes to giving it back. Maybe I’m just not feelin’ my Irish blood today. I’m sure sheesh/lance-a-lot will bring me back to my senses any time now and I’ll come out with my verbal dukes up.

    Anger makes me angry.

    Did you know smiling (even a force/fake smile) does all kinds of positive things to your body? I’d post some links but then my goll-derned comment would go into moderation oblivion.

    Anyhoodle, smile!

    I don’t know how to break this to you, but your screen-name was NOT misspelled, the first letter was merely capitalized.

    “Now, all the rednecks will be capitalizing my name because it looks so “proper”.”

    Could be, but I don’t think anyone really cares about it to the extent that you apparently do.

    Given the context of Rosenbaum’s post, the nit-picking pettiness of your correction was hilarious.
