Victory!

A visit to my profile at David Horowitz’s smear site shows that my copyrighted photograph has vanished into the ether, presumably with his lawyer’s fictional Fair Use defense (when will someone write a definitive debunking of that online canard?)–which has also disappeared from Horowitz’s other right-wing project, Front Page Magazine.

It’s hardly on the scale of convincing Bush to withdraw from Afghanistan and Iraq, but it proves my point: when lefties are on the right side of the law, we should fight back because we will win. Stop being such wussies, folks!

Assuming that Horowitz refrains from violating my copyright in the future, no further legal action will be required concerning this photo.

Favorite Hate Mail of the Day

I know it’s just a misspelling, but I’m still giggline at this from Rexxauthor@aol.com:

Ted Rall is an anto-american. and has no talent. regards

Is an “anto-american” like that 50’s movie “Them!”?

Right-Wing Challenge Entries

Finally! We’re getting some qualifying entries to the Challenge.

From Energie:

[QUOTES EDITED OUT BECAUSE THEY CAUSED FORMATTING PROBLEMS–Sorry, Ted]

Vile stuff to be sure, and should be condemned by all thinking Americans. Doesn’t quite rise to the level of the stuff I’ve seen about me and other libs like Michael Moore, but still disgusting as hell. I can’t imagine why the hosts of these blogs don’t immediately delete these threats.

And there’s this from Mark Coffee, who also runs a blog:

Title: Rall Changes Rules, but the Challenge is Met
Ted Rall, no doubt overwhelmed with examples of left-wing moonbat ranting, now says only a violent threat to specific political or media personalities (Rall laughingly must consider himself one of the latter) counts towards his challenge (and then tries to cover up his Little Green Football snafu with the new rule that comments count). He then says (and I don’t believe it for a minute) that the challenge has yet to be met,
No matter: if he continues to say it, you know he’s lying, ’cause I got your quotes, Ted, plus links.
1. Kelly Hagan, responding to a post entitled ‘Bush Should Not Be Assassinated’, responds that ‘an event like this [the assassination of
2. Fernando88: ‘I want to kill George Bush…but that’s an understatement.’
3. smilingyoukia: ‘OK, I believe George Bush should die…’
Oh, but that’s fringe stuff, you say; you won’t find anything like that on, say, the Daily Kos…oops!:
I dislike junior’s stupid, arrogant, ugly chimp-like demeaner soooo much that I change the channel any time, I mean anytime, I have the misfortune on seeing him or hearing him on TV or radio. The word hate is to mild a word to define my dislike of the punk. I would gladly watch though to see him hurt and laugh as he stated crying. I’d like to see him in pain even though I’m an animal loving, non violent atheist. Junior is a bad, bad, bad man.
Okay, okay, that’s one on the Daily Kos, but surely there weren’t anymore…oops:
Best thing about the “personal” hate you talk about is the day one of those people dies. Leaves the living. Never again to require any of your energy. Poof! Gone. Memorable, memorable day. The relief is scary enough to make you realize how terrible hate really is. I work very hard to avoid it now. Though I’m saving the red dress I was gonna wear around town after Kerry’s victory for W’s funeral week.
Then there’s this gem aimed at Hindrocket of Power Line:
Reading Hindrocket’s slanders and looking at his f***ing spoiled, preppy face, I had fantasies of meeting him on a public street and kicking the living s**t out of him until the only thing his face resembled was a raw pulp of bloody meat.

Peaceful bunch, these lefties…and Rall, you’re not kidding anyone…you know this stuff is out there already. And please, quit lying and saying the challenge has not been met. I just met it.

Believe it or not, no, I did NOT know that any of this stuff was out there. I’d read references by Republican bloggers to such things, but no one ever provided a link and I could never find it. Suffice it to say, this stuff pisses me off and should not be tolerated by anyone who purports to be a law-abiding American. And again: mainstream blogs like Kos should delete this shit as soon as it appears–as should the nasty right-wing sites like Little Green Footballs.

Has the challenge been met? Yes. The scale may not not quite be the same, but there is clearly a significant amount of leftie hate speech out there to match the crap the righties put out. I can’t shame the righties into doing anything, but to readers who agree with me about anything, please consider what this does to us and how it invalidates our arguments.

More goes up as it comes in; wrap up on Monday.
