Most of us on the right of the political spectrum recognize that not all liberals are loons. Most of us are capable of admitting that there are some loons on the right, as well. But, to this humble observer of the asylum. it does seem that the liberals have a disproportionate share of the loons.
I came across this liberal loon story at American Thinker. The protagonist in this story is a young woman by the name of Meg Lanker-Simons. She is a student at the University of Wyoming. She is a liberal activist and she writes a popular blog where she expresses her liberal views. That, by itself. does not qualify her for being exceptionally stupid. The rest of the story, however, does qualify her as being exceptionally stupid. Miss Lanker-Simons has demonstrated a level of stupidity that she could not possibly have come by naturally. She has acquired a level of stupidity that she could only have achieved with great dedication and hard work on her part. Let’s see if you agree.
Someone on the university campus operates what is refered to as “ a college “crush” Facebook page.” A vile message was posted on this page, which was directed at Miss. Lanker-Simons. Language Alert:
“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. ”I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and she’s gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.
Our young liberal activist wasted no time posting the comment on her own blog and commented calling it :
disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.
A surprisingly civilized response, don’t you think? But, the U of W students were rightly outraged. I would hope that most conservatives would be equally outraged by such vile and childish prank. The campus police were not amused. They began investigation. I assume they wanted to find the perpetrator and charge the person with a “hate” crime. The police were successful in finding the “hater”:
The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.
“Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation.
The University of Wyoming also confirmed a statement that the police had “”obtained substantial evidence verifying that the offending Facebook post came from Lanker-Simons’ computer, while the computer was in her possession.”
Oops! My guess is that had the vile message been sent by someone from the right side of the political spectrum, they would have been smart enough not to use their own computer. Miss Lanker-Simons was not that smart.
What’s the chance that she will be charged with a “hate” crime? You probably shouldn’t hold your breath.
Sane people might think that the fans of Miss Lanker-Simons’ blog would have dropped her like a hot potato. Sane people would be wrong. Her fans have set-up a Facebook page to defend her actions, which they believe were justified:
“Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent we believe what she did was justified and deserves not to be held accountable for her accusations we stand behind you sister,”
I rest my case. The left does have a disproportionate number of loons.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
