I’m a Witch. You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry.

I recently noted that I will delete comments that fail to respect the norms of democratic debate and that I will block repeat offenders.

Here’s an example of a comment that I had to come home from work today and delete:

These are ideas that just used to be called normal before fascists and socialists infected peoples* minds with the idea of entitlement to the property of others as a virtue.

Sorry, but on my blog you don’t get to call people a horrible name such as “fascist,” nor to associate fascists with socialists, in response to concerns for the poor and disabled.  There’s an entire world wide web, created with tax dollars, where you can peddle that sort of hatred and false equivalence.  Not here.

Thanks to the many, many, many people who have commented, debated, and discussed ideas here for over a decade while upholding the standards of civil society.

*You’re missing an apostrophe here.  So extra points off for failing to respect the language of Faulkner, Churchill, and Mary Oliver.
