I haven't been writing much lately, so it's good to know loyal wmtc readers are still reading every post. Well, one is, anyway.
Yes folks, a full seven years after first appearing in comments on this blog in the guise of a female fan, the freak we call Mags is still spewing his bile on a regular basis. We delete most of the comments without reading, but once in a while, it's good to share.
For the record, I regard every one of those (nearly) 3,000 victims of September 11, 2001, and their loved ones, among the extremely long list of victims of US imperialism. I have mourned them all. Not a one deserved their fate.
I merely recognize that their numbers are dwarfed by the millions of unacknowledged victims of US imperialism and other wars the world over. And I've had my fill (and then some) of the US exceptionalism and UScentrism that fetishizes the event.
I know you all know that. But some things just need to be said, even if it brings attention to the class clown that we normally ignore.
September 12, 2001: a view from new york.
September 11, 2010: it is so time to be over 9.11
September 11, 2011: 9.11.11: an anti-remembrance
It appears that in 2012 I ignored the day completely!
And on the endlessly fascinating, maddeningly inscrutable topic of trolls, I am still wondering, why, why, why???
Scrolling through the "wingnuts" wmtc category, I notice that I also mentioned Mags when we returned from Spain in late May. I must be running out of material!*
* Not really.
