Well. Go a week of typing up intellectual stuff and hardly anyone comments; type up a political entry where you call someone a motherfucker and it all hits the fan.
I think, perhaps, I was not entirely clear when I posted my last entry. In my defense, or justification, it was late and I was tired. So, let me clear things up now.
When I said "you motherfuckers" last night, I was referring to the people who wrote the spam. Not to people who supported the war.
Upon reflection, I can see where this misunderstanding came from.
I guess what I was really objecting to was the sentiment at the heart of the spam itself--namely, the idea that anyone who opposed the war in Iraq is disloyal, thinks "we deserved to get bombed," and/or is a traitor. That's why I put in that bit about the either/or fallacy.
There is a difference between "patrotism" and "uncritical support." It's the latter I really object to.
yuuo? I am sorry I offended you with my post. Please understand where I was coming from. But also please understand that I'm apologizing for being insultingly unclear.
I hope this will calm everyone down some.
