I wrote yesterday about Nicholas Thalasinos who used to write for this blog. He was murdered by one of the terrorists in San Bernardino. Since that time there have been news stories by allegedly reputable outlets that have basically asked his wife if he was asking to be killed because of his anti radical Islam stance. Others in social media blamed Nick for what happened to him and some even suggested he got what he deserved. You know, he was against Islam so he deserved to be murdered.
I have two comments in moderation that will never see the light of day. Yes, all first time comments must be moderated (once you have one approved you can comment without moderation) and this is to ensure that some moron does not post something I don’t want here and have it up before I get a chance to see it.
The two comments in moderation are examples of why I do this. While both comments have a different name and email (both obviously fake) they came from the same IP and they use the same language. No doubt when the first one did not go through the genius thought a second one would.
In any event, these comments blame Nick for his death. The ignorant slob who wrote them said Nick sewed hatred that was not very Christian and did not reflect Christian values and he was a blowhard who insulted Islam. The commenter then went on to say Nick ran his mouth but could not fight when the crazies came for him.
One phrase by the moron who wrote the comments warns me to watch what I say because I will be stirring up trouble (from the religion of feces no doubt) and that I am worthless, a wimp and of no use when trouble strikes.
Yes, that is me alright. Anyone who knows me knows that I served in the Army for 24 years and that I am willing and able to defend my country against all enemies foreign and domestic. You see, my oath has no expiration date and I take it seriously.
The true wimps are those who sit behind their keyboards and attack a dead man who obviously cannot defend himself. The true cowards are those who worry about people attacking because of something someone says.
I believe in the right to speak my mind as I see fit and I don’t really care who gets offended by what I say. If my words offend anyone I suggest they put their big boy or girl pants on and buck up.
I am not certainly not worried that my words will cause anyone to go batcrap crazy. If they do and I end up dead then it is a glorious day to die. But I will endeavor to ensure I take as many with me as I can.
As for the commenter, you suggested that Nick should have talked about love and then no one would have gotten hurt.
You keep right on thinking that cupcake. The real men will stand at the ready to defend you morons when the defecation hits the rotating cooling device.
Nick, you were right about many things brother. The moron commenter shows just how right you were.
As for you anonymous commenter, you are a moron with a low intellect and a unibrow. Ohhhh, I insulted you. Should I be worried…
Go away now, the adults are trying to have a conversation.
Never surrender, never submit.
