Snark spoken here

HanktheHorrible jumps on the McCain train.

Trentaylor, a rather pale imitation of Hank as of late, posted a link oveor at SL about Obama’s half brother in Kenya. http://shocklinesforum.yuku.com/topic/6210. The article published in the UK’s Telegraph was based on an Italian edition of Vanity Fair. It mentions Obama meeting George (his half brother) twice. Nowehre does it mention whether the Barak campaign was asked for their input about the story, or what Obama may be doing.

Not one to miss an opportunity to bash the left, Hank chimes in with a totally off the cuff tangent about McCain and how mercilessly he was tortured, while we only waterboarded 3 Al Quaeda suspects.

If being tortured is deemed a positive for a Presidential candidate, then reading Hank’s posts makes candidates of us all.

HanktheHorrible’s Forgivenes is Divine Brigade

Thanks to Kim for pointing out this lovely bit of excrement over on SL:
http://shocklinesforum.yuku.com/topic/6036

Mark Samuels, who started the thread begins with this: “I don’t agree with Hank on everything, and I have no vested interest in defending him. ”

Then why are you doing so?

He goes on, and brace yourself for this: “I understand that he can be abrasive but I don’t think there’s any real underlying malice in him.”

He takes glee in an execution; views anyone not a Christian as an enemy; is a rampant racist when it comes to Muslims, Hispanics, or anyone not like him; views any relgion other than Christianity with contempt; thinks American government and law are based on the “Ten Commandments” (as Bryon pointed out on TODP). But none of that has any malice, does it?

You can read the rest for yourself and view the other responses if you can stomach it.

so what we learned today, is that if you’re a lawyer, a good writer, and have a few awards (including a Stoker), you can be forgiven for your racism, arrogance, and anger with people who aren’t you. I call bullshit on that, and everyone who posted on that thread and agreed with Mark should be ashamed of themselves. If this were one of the Legion, would they still say the same thing? Or are double standards allowed when one has a certain degree of success? Intelligence doesn’t give you a pass on unacceptabe behavior. An asshole is an asshole no matter their IQ.

I want to mention that Bryon’s responses, said far more with the pictures he posted, than everyone else has trying to kiss Hank’s ass with apologies.

Hank the Victim

What could have been a thread on SL about a book being pulled due to content has once again erupted into a flame war, and we have HanktheHorrible to thank. Rather than keep the headline as it was, he decided to alter it, to suit his own purposes. In essence it’s turned into a “Moslems are everywhere! Run for your lives! Unless your not me, then go fuck yourself.”

 

Here’s the link, but I have no doubt Matt will either lock or snip, so I hope someone can take snaps of the pages before they vanish.

 

In true nitwit behaviour, Hank is now claiming to be a victim; everyone is picking on him.

 

Sound familiar?

More problems with Shocklines

Bryon Morrigan pointed this out over at TODP http://theotherdarkplace.com/mboard/index.php?topic=15227.0 . Hank yet again taking after anyone who isn’t him. He calls himself a libertarian but he’s not. He’s a bigot, a racist, a xenophobe. Call it what you will, but I’ll refer it to as the ugly american syndrome. Every stereotype that can be said about Americans, Hank has rolled all into one big skid mark of a post.

Yet he is entitled to his opinion, as disgusting as some of them may be. So offensive are his thoughts about any religion that isn’t Christianity, caused one veteran SL membber to call it quits. I don’t blame her one bit, but I do blame someone and that’s Matt.

For all his talk about not wanting or tolerating hate speech on his board, or putting down others, he’s allowed Hank free reign to create a blight of said hate speech all over his board. Yet Matt does nothing.  Well he does post LOLcat pictures but that’s in his comfort zone.  When it comes to actually doing something useful like cutting truly hateful posts, he leaves them and will snip the reactions. It seems as if he no longer cares about his board and what it meant to so many people at one time. He’s content to let people leave one by one and let the lunatics run the asylum.

Way to go Matt.

HanktheHorrible earns his name

I’ll point to the post that prompted this thread. http://shocklinesforum.yuku.com/topic/5903

Now I like Hank. He’s a good writer and a nice guy but he and I will NEVER agree on politics. He’s written some truly posts in the past regarding, immigrants, muslims and the poor, yet this one takes the cake.

I’ve never been a death penalty kind of guy. Lock ’em up and throw away the key is my motto. Otis will take care og whoever in the showestall one night. As sickening as this crime is, the murderer still has family-some that may even love him-yet they get punished as well. As someone who had a loved one in prison and subsequently killed there I may  be biased. I don’t care. Given the crimes that are repeatedly committed in this country, the death penalty hardly seems to be a deterrant. Yet people seem to believe the smoke screen of justice when in fact it’s revenge and nothing more.

Hank has a lot to be proud of in Texas. They execute the mentally ill. They elected George Bush as governor. They have the Dallas Cowboys.  And they have people like Hank.

Way to go. now excuse me while I hang my head in shame.
