I hope you will allow me to make a comment about this issue. I am a left wing blogger, and I cover the Conservative presence on the internet (I've read Astute Bloggers daily for years, for example.) As I discovered soon after I started blogging, if you look farther and farther into the world of the right, you are bound to start coming across people whose beliefs indicate that they are very disturbed: the hate-filled rantings of dual seed Christian Identity followers, believers that alien lizard people control the earth, people who think that the government is preparing to exterminate Christians using guillotines, a guy who claims that Lincoln was Jewish, etc. A long time ago, I decided that it was unfair to report on people whose positions were really the result of internal problems of their own, rather than some sort of meaningful political views. That is, it is unfair to the people involved to ridicule them for something they have no control over, and it is unfair to more rational Conservatives to make these people representatives of the Conservative movement.Earlier on in my blogging history, I used to give Pam Geller a lot of coverage. As a couple of years went by, I felt that she had slid into the category of people with severe mental problems who should not be subjected to online ridicule. And I have barely mentioned her since. I think it is a cruelty to her to publicize her views, and very unfair to other Conservatives to lump them in with her.
you are wrong about her and you are a victim of your own fear of the left.what she is doing with the ads in sf is fantastic.she is brave and true and good and sane.
Well, obviously we disagree, but thanks for letting me present my views here.
