Leftist Liberal Environmentalists; People Hate Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook? (Or Are they Closet Racists?) Is It Psychology 101 - FAIL!)

This is humorous on so many levels...

I received a reader's comment that claims to be from Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook fame. While I figure that it's a pretty good bet that Mark Zuckerberg doesn't read my blog, the contents of the letter show just how far some people will go to confuse the issues and fail to discuss facts... 

This place's sushi was $1.20 a plate today. When their sushi gets to $15 a plate... They'll probably go bankrupt and the fishers will stop fishing for them.... Simple example of the law of Supply and Demand...

In yesterday's blog post, I turned an discussion from a typical self-righteous LL environmentalist on its head when I seemingly agreed that the fish should be protected and the best way to do that would be to start killing off Americans. In  They Call Fish "Brain Food" Because it is Supposed to Make You Smarter. More Americans Need to Eat More Fish; Just How Stupid Can People Be? I wrote: 

"We need to start decimating the population of all people in order to protect the environment! I think we should start with everyone in the USA since they account for 5% of the (world) population and (use up) over 25% of the world's resources. Anyone agree?

Maybe if we killed only 1/2 the population of Americans, we could make a huge dent. Especially since the average American's caloric intake is 2 ~ 3 times that of a SE Asian's… I say there's no time to waste. We must act now before it's too late!"

I imagine that my comments were a surprise to many white bourgeoise readers of Facebook. Such a surprise that one of the peanut gallery took umbrage and tried to write an intelligent retort. 

Here's their message:

I'm Mark Zuckerberg, and I Like (tm) this post. Every time you go on Facebook and share these oh-so-interesting opinions, I make more money because I now have a more complete record of your life and how it relates to others than you do. And so does the NSA. But yeah, posting on blogger (a Google-owned service) about what you saw on Facebook is above and beyond, and I'm sure your readers will also be fascinated to read second hand what you are doing there. Thanks Mike! I'm going to buy a new hoodie with the money I just made off you.

Enjoy your hoodie. I hope the NSA enjoys my information too since I don't live in the USA... Gee, is the NSA keeping tabs now on every single person in the entire world? Good luck with that! Let me know how that turns out for you guys! Also, cute use of the trademark sign after "Like."

If this was an American who was upset because I made comments about how dumb some Americans are, then I can let them slide... This person would just be proving my point. 

Bet you half a donut, though, that this person is a LL environmentalist that doesn't want me pointing out the illogic and absurdity of their ideas that completely misunderstand the simple concept of "supply and demand" on Facebook to the rest of the peanut gallery... 

(I always chuckle how LL environmentalists, for example, use cartoons as "evidence" of environmental problems. Cartoons? Sure, comic books; that's the extent of their reading habits).

Actually, my friends, I hurl my disgust and complete disdain at this person's "intellectualist posing," as well as at their ignorance and racism. That's right. You read that clearly; ignorance and racism. These people really irk me as they sit in their suburban homes and make ill-considered comments in places like Facebook (or wherever) about how we have to protect the environment - as long as, of course, it doesn't inconvenience them!

Yeah... It is really worrisome about the depletion of the ocean fish population... Americans should be the first to call the clarion alarm! Why, as of 2009, 73% of the American population is over-weight or obese (It's gotten worse since then) and people in South East Asia are starving! Don't believe me? From Think Quest:

In the Asian, African and Latin American countries, well over 500 million people are living in what the World Bank has called "absolute poverty." 

I find it the height of self-righteous hypocrisy that any American could even bring up the subject.

But that they and other western white Liberals can bring up this idiotic trash doesn't surprise me. George Carling spoke about it years ago. He said, 

"I'm tired of these self-righteous environmentalists; these white bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren't enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for their Volvos. Besides environmentalists don't give a shit about the planet; they don't care about the planet. Not in the abstract they don't… You know what they are interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They're worried that someday in the future that they, personally, might be inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn't impress me..."

Instead of debating my comments on the face and value of them, the writer wants to make fun of me and insinuates that I am stupid because commenting about anything on Facebook allows Zuckerberg to make money off of me. 

Oh, really? I wonder how much Zuckerberg made off me while I was railing on Facebook and warning people not to buy it before IPO? (Here, here, here, here and here - and there's lots more!)

Now, I think Facebook sucks and is a money loser and waste of time and I write about it too... But at least I do that on this blog in the (most probably) vain hopes of getting more readers. But this person purporting to be Zuckerberg has actually written a "letter" and I can deduce that they want me to be confused as to their purpose.

I gather that the sender thinks that the receiver of such a message might get so mad that "Zuckerberg" sends a comment like this that they quit Facebook (or quit railing on dummies). Maybe they would. I have pointed out that there are a lot of stupid people running around.... So it might not be someone who hates Zuckerberg at all... It might be one of these dummies who I railed on in that blog post....

Well, it's impossible to quit being white; it's pretty tough to stop from suffering from "White Cultural Superiority Complex." Decades of conditioning aren't apt to change just from reading a few blog posts. And it's nearly impossible to quit being an American. It's difficult to quit being a Liberal or environmentalist because of government imposed public education that doesn't teach analytical thought process....

But you could quit being as dumb as most of these people by reading some books... 

Of course, not all Americans are stupid... Just most of them. I think that even intelligent Americans agree with me... The biggest problem is the really dumb Americans don't know (realize) who they are - how could they? They are too busy posting on Facebook and watching TV.

Anyone who gets their panties in a bunch over environmentalism is a moron. It's also typical of certain type of person in America who believes Obama isn't American or that he wants to transform the US into a soviet state. Unfortunately, we have so many morons like that. They also tend to be against gun control, abortion rights, or any restrictions whatsoever in campaign financing...

well, not all sashimi and sushi is priced the same. the better and harder to find fish, like some good toro (and i mean "good"), costs quite a bit more. bottom line is that if the prices go up, it's probably because there aren't enough of that particular fish. is that from over-fishing or from pollution or both or, neither? maybe just mother nature doing her thing.

Anonymous at 9:43 gives away his hand so no need to even reply. Morons who are against gun control? So if guns cause crimes then I suppose video cameras cause child pornography?
Anonymous at 4:28 am is confused. Toro and Maguro come from the same fish. Toro has become more expensive because there is much less of it from one fish and it is considered much more delicious (and has become more well known for that) - hence demand has increased FOR THAT PART OF THE FISH... This has lead to price increase. Like I said, they are different parts of the same fish.

You rail against violence in America and bemoan the lack of freedom due to insecurity and yet you are against gun control? Great, what kind of fantastical ideas are you going come up with next to fix the US? Just another right-wing American. Nothing to learn here. People are realizing what "libertarian" really means...

I'll take a read, but you're right; it probably won't change my mind.

I'll reply a little more emphatically: I have absolutely zero interest in hearing your thoughts on gun control. ZERO INTEREST. Thanks

Some other things you might say are interesting, but certainly not on this topic.

Intelligent readers deserve an even more explicit and pronounced demolition of Anonymous at 7:02 am. He writes, "You rail against violence in America and bemoan the lack of freedom due to insecurity and yet you are against gun control?" Then adds, "Nothing to learn here." That's the problem with people like you, you think you know every thing so you fail to read and study. I'll have you know that there was a time when I was as confused on this issue as you are. Let's take this slow. If gun control equals more violence and less security, then how do you explain the FACT that 9 out of the top 20 "Most Peaceful Nations of 2012" are in the Top 20 Nations with the most guns per capita in the world? See? THINK! It's not guns.
Most Guns Per Capita World:
#4 Switzerland
#8 Finland
#10 Sweden
#11 Norway
#13 Canada
#14 Austria
#15 Iceland
#15 Germany
#20 New Zealand

Most Peaceful Nations World Ranking:
#1 Iceland
#2 New Zealand
#4 Canada
#6 Austria
#9 Finland
#10 Switzerland
#14 Sweden
#15 Germany
#18 Norway
Explain please....

Addendum: Anonymous at 9:57 proves two things I said; 1) People don't read so they can't make informed opinions.
2) Farr too many Americans are stupid because of a government run educational system that doesn't teach logic or the ability to entertain analytical thought.
Anonymous at 9:57 has his mind made up about his religion. No point in arguing with a donkey.

Bill said...

Did you see who is at the top of that list of most guns owned per capita? F-cking America with 88.7 out of 100! Way above #2 which I think is Serbia. That is a ton. But then again, we all know how dangerous America has become. And remember, not all guns are the same. Hand guns, semi- automatics, automatics, hunting rifles, etc. I think Canada is up there because we're talking primarily hunting rifles. America, you can get anything. And a lot of that anything is at gun trade shows where you don't even have to show an ID.

yes, yes, i showed my ignorance. maguro and toro are both are from the blue fin tuna. and i forgot about chutoro and even otoro which i have never had. but not all blue fin tuna is the same as in one fish could be better than another. just like wild game. (mmm, this elk meat is goooood. yikes, this elk meat is gamey) now, if they would just farm the blue fin tuna they could control the population and probably the quality. or maybe they do this already. obviously i don't keep up with this stuff too well. and then, maybe the demand will stay high regardless of price and the fish will be driven to extinction and that'll be a shame.

Dear Anonymous at 4:28... Sorry of I offended you. I didn't mean that you were confused in a negative tone. I don't think most people know those cuts of fish come from the same type of fish... Oh, and you are right. I hear that one fish is better han another and vice versa.

Honestly, I think you missed the entire point of Mr. Z's post (hint: he was mirroring your sarcasm).

I'll bet he had no idea you'd fall so hard for his troll, believing it was merely snark.

Next time, maybe realize that people don't respond to your troll-bait (kill the humans) comments by discussing them at "face value," but rather in-kind.

As your responses to the original article can attest, only idiots respond directly to troll-bait. Mr. Z., meanwhile, was likely on the same page as you all along.

mikeintokyorogers said...

Thanks Anonymous at 6:53... Nah, I don't think it was trolling.... Especially since the sentences were well-written and they specifically put "Mike" in there. Trolls usually don't handle grammar nor spelling well...could be wrong though! Thanks!
