Leave it to a few young, mush-headed trolls to start screaming about my post yesterday displaying the sign outside of Casa D'Ice that says "Screw Atheists".
In the post, I showed the latest sign outside of the restaurant in North Versailles, Pennsylvania. The establishment is owned and operated by Bill Balsamico, a man known for his politically incorrect signs. Somewhat of a celebrity, Mr. Balsamico speaks his mind through his signs.
Troll #1 appeared out of nowhere to say that they thought it would be "hilarious" to change the word "Atheist" to "Jews" or "Blacks". I replied to said troll that they are banned from this site because I won't tolerate racial slurs.
In checking Troll #1's website (I know you're reading this; yes I did.), I found a post about how, despite being an atheist, they still celebrate Christmas. This, my friends, is hypocrisy. Troll #1 (and you know who you are), you CANNOT celebrate Christmas if you are truly an atheist. Your giving of gifts to friends and family is an acknowledgment that the Magi brought gifts to the Christ child, the basis of the gift-giving tradition. This story is told in the Bible, so you must recognize the religious meaning behind Christmas if you engage in gift-giving.
Troll #2 came running to the defense of Troll #1 saying that the comment about Jews and Blacks was just trying to prove the point that saying "Screw Atheists", as Mr. Balsamico did, is on a par with racial slurs. How anyone can equate someone practicing a godless religion by choice with the God-given color of one's skin still has my brain hurting. Yes, Jews do practice their faith by choice, but after what Jews endured over many generations, I say they're off limits.
Troll #2 ran a post at their site whining about how hard it is for atheists to get into religious colleges. If you're an atheist, you little troublemaker, why would you even want to attend a Christian college?
Troll #3 wanted a little clarification. The comment was this:
So slurs against blacks and jews are bad, but slurs against atheists are fine?
I told Troll #3 that Mr. Balsamico is exercising his rights under the First Amendment. Haven't heard from him since.
This morning, I find that the torch carried by Troll #3 must have been passed to yet another troll.
Troll #4 replied to my BOF's comment by basically saying that WE who may agree with Mr. Balsamico are haters. Troll #4 has blocked anyone from viewing their profile. If you're so proud to be an atheist, why hide it? I would think you'd want to share your views with whoever may want to take a look. If you want to promote understanding, what's the harm? We here on the right normally don't go over to other people's sites and just stir shit up. At least the bloggers I know don't unless someone such as yourself, Troll #4, comes to our site first. Don't rock the boat at someone else's site and then hide behind anonymity. That's being a coward. Have the balls to stand up and take any backlash that may arise from your rhetoric.
The whole issue these little libs have is that someone dared to stand up to them and say "Screw you!" Their widdle feewings must be hurt, so they're going to whine and whine about how they are the minority and how wrong it is to say such hurtful things. That's all it boils down to. They're young, 20-something Generation-Me members who have been raised in the religion of political correctness and that the only thing that matters is how they feel.
To you trolls and any others who want to say how "bigoted" we on the right are: Don't waste your time commenting. I will not give you a forum for your bitching, and I won't taint my site with your PC comments. The First Amendment is in full effect for now, and we will exercise our right to freedom of speech under such. If I see your name in comment moderation, rest assured that your comment will be immediately rejected. Go whine to someone who cares what you think.
