Wonkette Is A

[Update and correction below]
vile, evil, disgusting, hate-filled, inhuman little creature. And her brain-dead hangers-on are no better.

For some time, many people have said a lot of Leftists hate Sarah Palin because she made the tough, courageous, and right decision not to abort Trig. While I agreed with the sentiment, I thought it may have possibly been a bit hyperbolic. Wonkette and her hangers-on disabused me of that charitable consideration. In a big way. A very big way. Her hate-filled article title:

Greatest Living American: A Children’s Treasury of Trig Crap On His Birthday

The very first thing you see there is a vile, disgusting, hate-filled GIF.

Wonkette's vile, evil hatred

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Wonkette had to add words to her post.

That strange man yelling unintelligibly at Sarah Palin? He’s merely a lowly shepherd proclaiming the birth of our savior. Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.) It doesn’t matter. What matters is that we are privileged to live in a time when we can witness the greatest prop in world political history.

The vile, evil Wonkette even went so far as to mock a woman who wrote a poem for Trig. I tried to go to the website that has the poem but was stopped by a registration window, so Wonkette, in her vileness, had to register on the site to seek out ways to be vile. The site: TeamSarah.ning.com And the poem Lynda wrote:

Sweet Angel Boy…

Oh, little boy what are you dreaming about
Candy canes and mom’s sweet hugs

Oh, sweet baby boy what are you dreaming about
Play cars…trains…planes and a daddy’s strong hands as he lifts you high and makes you laugh…oh, how safe you feel in those hands

Oh, little boy what are dreaming about
Sisters who play with you…and teach you new words

Oh, as you sleep little boy what are you dreaming about
A big bother that carries you on his shoulders…as he shows you the blue sky

Oh, little boy what are you dreaming about
A mother’s soft lullaby…the soft touch of her hand…the soft sound of her voice as she says “I Love You”
Dream on little boy as the Angels stand guard

Her vile response?

What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

As Wesley J Smith said:

Even more than intimating incest. Vile. And the nonsense about Trig not dreaming: Have you noticed the undercurrent of bigoted eugenics and anti disability loathing among certain elements of the Left? I sure have.

Wonkette has proven herself to be one of the most vile, evil, disgusting Leftists around. But her hangers-on did their best to keep up with her in the comment section.

And the Left makes the utterly ridiculous claim that they are the tolerant ones!! Proof positive that is a lie!

UPDATE AND CORRECTION:
Jack Stuef wrote that Wonkette pile of evil hatred, not Wonkette. Apparently, Gawker owns Wonkette the blog and “let go” Wonkette the writer some time ago. Therefore, I cannot stand by my description of Wonkette the writer. That description fits Jack Stuef. I do not read Wonkette the writer so I don’t know what sort of person she is, other than some liberal writer.

Dana Loesch has been all over this story, as have many other writers.

Wonkette Makes Fun of Trig Palin, Calls Him “Retarded”

They consider this satirical? This entire thing sounds like it was written by some guy, in this case, Jack Stuef who got tired of being bullied on the playground and, seeing his once chance to sound cool and impress people, decides to bully a child. You picked on a kid, dude. Yay for you.

What’s he dreaming about? Nothing. He’s retarded.

[...]

His mom went to a lot of trouble to leak amniotic fluid over 8 states to make sure that he arrived in this world somewhat alive,”

[...]

Enjoy yourself today, Trig. Have fun! Get drunk (on purpose this time)! We can hardly wait for 15 years from now, when you will finally be able to vote and will be sent off by your mother’s junta to fight the Union in the Great Alaska War. It’ll be quite a loss. You’re the smartest one in that family.

This is what happens when a little-known blogger who edits the literary equivalent of the bathroom wall in Walmart isn’t clever enough to either write satire or convey why he doesn’t like the Palins. And this is considered acceptable by progressives.

(We have our own resident radical Leftist who gave tacit approval by attempting to redirect and obfuscate in the comment section below.)

Papa Johns, Huggies Pulls Advertising From Wonkette After Trig Taunts *UPDATE Holland America Line Drops Wonkette *UPDATE #2: Nordstrom Drops Wonkette

As a result of this morning’s post condemning an outrageous post from Wonkette in which blogger Jack Stueff mocks Trig Palin over his Down Syndrome and suggests that Todd Palin slept with his daughter, outrage spread across Twitter and now Wonkette advertisers are pulling ads.

Mediaite to Wonkette Editor: It’s On UPDATE Slate: “Behold New Media” UPDATE #2: National Journal Misses the Mark *UPDATE #3: Ken Layne Lies About Attacking Trig

While we disagree with Mediaite from time to time in this space, there is one thing on which we do agree and that is children used as political targets: you shouldn’t.

Wonkette’s Half-Hearted Mea Culpa

Stueff didn’t “confuse the target.” He wrote a heinously awful in both form and tone piece attacking a child and mocking that child’s special needs. Don’t you confuse the target, Layne.

Wonkette Removes Writer’s Name From Trig Hit Piece UPDATE: Wonkette Deletes Comments

This is why we take screenshots.

["before" and "after" screenshots]

This is somehow better than an apology?

They’re apparently deleting the offensive comments as well while pretending such comments never existed.

That’s the thing with these Leftist sites: they love throwing things down the memory hole but still can’t figure out people have already taken screencaps due to the fact Leftist sites (blog and news) love throwing things down the memory hole.

From PJ Salvatore
Wonkette’s Ken Layne, Blogger Jack Stuef’s History of Targeting Kids

Salvatore quotes Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion

But more important, Layne has a very convenient memory. In 2009, as I documented in my post Wonkette Goes After Trig Palin Again, Layne mocked Trig, including running this photoshop which he took from a posting board:

[photo image]

In 2008, Wonkette ran a post by Jim Newell, who now works for Gawker, mocking Trig and joking:

“Little baby Trig must be so glad he wasn’t aborted for this, his first Halloween, because his parents dressed him up like a political party symbol to be carried around at snarling political events. Aww. Isn’t life just grand?”

Wonkette the blog and Gawker are evil blights on the world, as are Jack Stuef, Ken Layne, Jim Newell, and all those hangers-on who had their comments flushed down the memory hole (but likely not before they, too, were screencapped).

  1. Wonkette Is A

    vile, evil, disgusting, hate-filled, inhuman little creature.

    But is she a proven liar like you?

    (The projection is strong in this one)

  2. It’s a pathetic display, and whoever Wonkette is, she should rethink providing a platform for Jack Stuef whatever he is.

    Then again it is convenient to have emotionally disturbed leftoids (a redundancy of course) continually re-revealing exactly why they are the enemies of the principle of voluntary association.

  3. She’s making fun of disabled children. Seriously.

    As the parent of a profoundly mentally disabled child I cannot express just how awful this is. It used to make me angry now it just makes me loathe them.

    I would sooner hang out with a proven liar than someone who picks on disabled children.

  4. I’m trying to figure out why anyone would be doing this. OK, our friends on the left hate Sarah Palin, and think that she was an idiot for not aborting her younger son, even though he was diagnosed with Down Syndrome pre-natally. But, considering the scorn heaped upon Andrew Sullivan for his continual “Trig Palin Trutherism,” concerning whether Trig was Sarah Palin’s son, or actually her oldest daughter, Bristol’s, I just can’t figure out why a popular blogger like Wonkette would set herself up for similar abuse.

    Then I figured it out; from Wonkette’s site meter:

    [caption id="attachment_15126" align="alignnone" width="450" caption="Wonkette\'s declining readership"][/caption]

    Throw in a post like that, and maybe she’ll get some new notoriety, and reverse the steady decline in readership. And it has worked, at least initially: the site has had the most visits today than any day in the past thirty.

    But it won’t last.

  5. And while Wonkette might have gotten a temporary readership jump, it isn’t going to be as profitable. From Donald Douglas:

    Advertisers Ditch ‘Wonkette’ After Diabolical Attack on Trig Palin

    You have to check Robert Curlin‘s Twitter page, which is lighting up with tweets and re-tweets about major advertisers pulling their ads from the despicable left-wing blog, Wonkette.

    See Weazel Zippers, “Über-Classy: Liberal Website Relentlessly Mocks Palin’s Son With Downs Syndrome – Update: Papa Johns, Huggies Pull Their Ads From Wonkette…

    And NewsBusters, “Liberal Website Wonkette Disgracefully Attacks Trig Palin On His Third Birthday” (via Memeorandum).

    And for the record: This is not an aberration. This is not an anomaly. Try denial as they might, progressives simply can’t get around this, for this is what they do.

    God help them.

    ADDED: From Glenn Reynolds, “EVEN TODAY, AND EVEN FOR WONKETTE, THERE ARE LINES. Wonkette crossed one. Now people are boycotting advertisers.”

  6. She’s definitely more of a “man” than you, Kiwi Pussy.

    So how long have you been sexually confused, ignorant fuckwit?

  7. And the Left makes the utterly ridiculous claim that they are the tolerant ones!! Proof positive that is a lie!

    Uh-huh.

  8. I believe this is an example of an Affirming the Consequent fallacy.

    Just because you’ve never seen either me or a pudenda, Hube, does not make us identical.

  9. I also made note of NZT within the article.

    And lied as you did so. About what we’ve come to expect from you, PB.

  10. Phoenician: Even on this issue you can’t agree that it was in poor taste? Honestly, the only thing you did was try to derail the conversation. To me that’s a prime example of what’s wrong with politics today. Are you so partisan that there is nothing despicable enough that you won’t say, “you know what? That’s wrong.”?

    We need not just spar with our opponents but we need to police our own when called for. If this isn’t that kind of case I don’t know what is.

  11. I couldn’t defend Wonkette. But this, from Dana: “…our friends on the left hate Sarah Palin, and think that she was an idiot for not aborting her younger son…” is absurd. I could as reasonably say that Righties are against abortion only because they prefer to devour live babies, rather than dead fetuses.

    Except, as usual, you’d be wrong Nang. What Dana wrote actually happened. See here.

  13. Hube: “Except, as usual, you’d be wrong Nang.”

    I didn’t say it was never stated. I said it’s absurd to apply to me, and all other liberals.

    You baby eater.

    Oh, right. IOW, like you do with regards to Righties each and every day in here, you mean?

    Got it.

  15. Naggy, it applies directly to you and to every other sick slimy turd who wallows in the same cesspool.

    And thus my accurate description of NZT giving “tacit approval by attempting to redirect and obfuscate in the comment section”.

    Rude Post Deleted By Editor; Author Apologizes


    by admin

    A post on this page satirizing Sarah Palin using her baby as a political prop was very badly done and sounded like the author was mocking the child and not just Sarah Palin/Sarah Palin’s followers.

    The writer, Jack Stuef, has apologized for it. And we have decided to remove the post as requested by some people who have nothing to do with Sarah Palin, but who do have an interest in the cause of special needs children. We apologize for the poor comedic judgment.

    And Wonkette has both deleted all of the comments and disabled further commenting on the issue.

    Hat tip to Gretchen for the information.

  18. 15 advertisers have officially pulled their ads so far. As the commenters on Big Journalism said, it took years of coordinated effort on the part of the fringe left to get Beck’s ads limited, but only a day of loudmouth fringe left showing who they are to get so many advertisers to run away from them like from a leper colony.

    When the Left removes their mask, the people run away.

  19. And we have decided to remove the post as requested by some people who have nothing to do with Sarah Palin, but who do have an interest in the cause of special needs children.

    Translation: We were losing our shorts and needed to pull it to stop the hemorrhaging.

  20. When the Left removes their mask, the people run away.

    Once again:

  21. Of course NZT wants to destract from the vile evil, thereby tacitly approving of the vile evil. But NZT’s distraction carries with it an implicit lie due to this thing intelligent people call “context.” But that’s what the vile, evil NZT does. That’s the vile, evil NZT’s game.

  22. Not to mention “he” gets all apoplectic when others do precisely as “he” …

    He’s a pussy. What’d you expect, Hitch? ;-)

  23. the talk radio host who apologized and decided to retire from her highly-rated program after using the N-word on the air 11 times in 5 minutes

    Of course, that completely leaves out the context in which that word was used. And, also (typical for you) you post the same post twice, showing a general lack of intelligence and originality. And, a final point – you completely ducked the original subject of this thread. It’s obvious you agree with the sentiments raised in the Wonkette piece, but lack the courage to actually say so.

  24. It’s obvious you agree with the sentiments raised in the Wonkette piece, but lack the courage to actually say so.

    Or, alternatively, I can’t be bothered going along with yet another wingnut manufactured hissy-fit.
