More ugliness from the right

A friend directed my attention to this.

Fwiw, I don't think I'd laugh at a video of a Klansmen who set himself on fire. It's amazing that the same wackaloons that go nuts over Bruno and the corrupt souls who find that funny don't bat an eye when someone in their flock tries to find humor in a video showing insurgents killed in an explosion.

Either you posted the link with a mistake, or they took it down.

He took down the post and is no longer blogging at WWWtW. He's offered some sort of explanation in a recent post. The criticism was too much, he said. I'm sure I'm among the people who was criticizing him. He thinks that I've completely misunderstood his motivations. It's possible. It still looked like he had made some really lame attempts to make fat jokes about someone I have tremendous respect for and it still looked like he was trying to find humor and entertainment in a video that showed people getting killed. It's sad and I'm not taking any pleasure in the fact that he's so unhappy, but it's probably a good idea for him to take a break.

I had the same reaction. Beckwith has a strange sense of humor. He also posted several outraged entries over Letterman/Palin flap this summer.

FWIW, I think your diagnosis of the subsequent situation is correct.

I enjoy your comments over there. I think you've got the right strategy. Every time I comment on something there it turns into a whole big ugly thing.

C'mon, a Klansman setting himself on fire would, and should, get a chuckle or two.
