Far left types do not understand markets or consumer behavior. One of the things that amaze me is the lack of understanding about the blogosphere itself. There are hundreds of thousands of blogs out there on every subject. However, a good blog gives you a reason to return weekly or daily.
I have no shortage of detractors and even had two blogs dedicated to my satire. Both are ham handed as far left types have no skill at genuine comedic satire. I think John Brown gets better ratings spoofing me than his boring predictable blog would otherwise get.
Far left types do not want to even read their own blogs because for the most part they are a bore. Thus we have Weazie with five boring blogs complaining weekly about this site. I do not visit Weazie or even care about his posts. He hasn't the social skills for interesting repartee and his posts are mostly cut and paste long winded bore. Ducky doesn't have a blog, it might be interesting to see who would visit his site other than me. We have the so called expert at how to "Develop Your Web Presence" who doesn't get more than one or two commens. He also is too lazy to write original content and he visits daily.
This blog draws much of its style from Mark Levin and Bob Grant. Part of the problem with many on the far left is that they seldom play defense at all. Thus a deranged person like John Brown can rant and rave and most people will yes him to death to shut him up. People tend to avoid rabid dogs and mentally unstable people. Brown can rant and rave about Vanilla Sam and the plantation all while worshiping a variety of drug dealers and spouting off zany 9-11 conspiracy theories and most people will ignore it.
We do not ignore idiocy here and we do not cater to the deranged. We handle dissent mostly in the nature it is presented. MZ and I disagree often, but it is a respectful disagreement. I do not coddle anti-history, conspiracy theories, utopians and racial power nuts. I see the racial power nuts mostly on Bad Eagle as few have shown up here. Uptown Steve is a Marcuse victims rights nuts who doesn't bother to read the text book.
One of the amazing complaints of the far left critics is that we are entertainment focused. A blog that is not read serves no purpose at all. We get our message across
and have a fun time doing it. Some of you think that in actuality I hate Ducky. There are pople I do loathe but Ducky is not one of them. I make my point and when the post is finnished it over.
Many of you think that a person who loves art and film and poses as a man of the people can not be a bigot. It is easier seen with a rabid dog like John Brown calling Native Americans Sambos and Jooos Nazis. Brown is more mental patient than Marxist and there is often plenty of overlap between the two. We have seen the Duck call a world respected author and educator a "Shoah Pimp". We have seen the Duck call Condi Rice " Aunt Jemimah". The Duck isn't exceptional in that there is and always will be a certain element of the left that is hateful. We are used to the stereotype "Archie Bunker" bigot. Yet there is also an unhinged deranged left that is out of its mind.
I do read some very far left blogs and not all far left types are hateful, certainly not Jams and some of the others. I was reading a blog who shall be nameless that wrote a post about the political views of porn actress Nina Hartley as a serious subject. Hartley is a far left nutjob who proclaims herself a Jew but no zionist. The fairly deranged posters of this blog seized upon that as a relevation or symbol of courage. Excuse me I do not take the political views of celebrities seriously those of porn stars are no exception. The episode stands out as an example of the obsession the far left has with Joooos and Israel.
One can delude themselves with a myth that I can post long winded discertations and that people will sit back and read chapter size post. If you want to have a lively blog respect your readers and remember less is more.
