Look...

One does not have to omit half a quote to make an intolerant, hypocritical, sanctimonious SJW tool like Damian G Walters look bad, hell, he writes for Gawker and the post in question is a pretty target rich environment. 


There is no reason to selectively edit a quote...ever. 

Because of this post, I almost posted this...
The quoted text is not the full sentence, which is rather more nuanced.

Note that there is a claim in the comments that the post had been edited, with a link to the original article. However, in the last stage of posting I went to get a screencap of the damming screencap and discovered that unless the SJWs are hacking the Wayback Machine, the sentence as written apparently contained the same text it has now.

After this issue with the quoted sentence was pointed out, the commenters dismissed this factoid as irrelevant because a lot of good observations remain Torgersen's piece. This is true. However, misquoting someone does not reinforce one's argument, it undermines it. 

As I've said before, ' When fighting monsters it is important to not become one yourself, for that rather defeats the purpose of the exercise'.  

I came within about seven seconds of libeling a doofus...which assuming anyone noticed, would only empower the doofus. It further annoyed me because I almost had to reset the "days since last derp" counter to zero, and we here at Brickmuppet Blog have worked long and hard to live down that Atomic Car fiasco

1 I gave been having a debate over this issue with a cousin, whom I had previously considered a fairly insightful individual.  The point discussed being the futility of repeating hyperbolic exaggerations and even outright lies about the President and former Secretary of State, as that only emboldens their defenders and further inflames an electorate that currently can't see straight.  My entreaty was that the truth would suffice with anyone capable of being persuaded at all; everything else is rhetoric.  He has, thankfully, started to approach me with apologetic actions regarding the tone he took in the ensuing argument.

2 Minor error, Damien writes, if you can call it that, for the Socialist/Communist rag the Guardian.

4 I had forgotten that.  I wonder,  did  that start before or after the hit piece on Larry Corriea.
