Malicious offensive insult

Ever since I had my LJ, I've been called EVERY hideous name in the book, not only in my own journal, but in those I've left comments in, which have never, ever been offensive in any way. I'm pretty tough skinned and have always let those insults go in one ear and out the other, and filed them in my WHATEVER file, but not this time. I haven't been able to get the things that horrible woman called me and accused me of, out of my head. I will NOT say in what LJ this happened.

On Feb. 22 of this year, there was this silly Writer's Block Question in a LJ friend's journal:

"Let's say you're running for president, and you win by a mudslide. What would you change about your country and why? Would you make new laws? Paint the White House blue? Tell all!"

I answered in my very good friend whom I care for a great deal and admire:

Playgirl: I would bring back every single soldier back home, get rid of Patriot Act, and the GOP. I'd also make it a federal crime when anyone (Michael Vick for example) is caught abusing animals. (I forgot to also write that I'd paint the White House red, which is my favorite color.

Some stranger from out of nowhere butted in and left this horrible comment for me:
Horrible Woman: Yeah, right. Leave this wealthy country undefended so that the barbarians without could rush in and loot everything, rape all the women and children, do wholesale murder, and then head out, leaving this country in ruins and those of its people who have survived starving. And by "barbarians" in this case I also include Islamist terrorists. As for the GOP, since they're a political party and the President has no authority to dissolve political parties, I assume you mean to mount a palace coup, throw out the Constitution, and become an emperor-despot -- but if so, where's the huge army you'd need to do that? And it's rather curious that you'd try to make abusing animals a federal crime, but not abuse of human children. That says some fascinating things about your priorities -- and, perhaps, your . . . pastimes. May you never, ever get control over any human child. Ever.

I replied: What's your problem A - hole! I would have lashed out at her, but since it happened in my friend's journal, I didn't because of respect for him.

She never replied to this, but left this comment to the LJ owner:
The President couldn't legally do that anyway. Any Executive Order to that effect would simply be ignored. Also, the President doesn't make law -- Congress doe, though the President can make Executive Orders (with no guarantee that Congress will ratify them). That's what set me off -- the statements she made strongly imply that she isn't familiar with the US Constitution, and what the duties and privileges of the President really are.

When I answered the writer's block question, I had no idea the question was a Political Science test from Harvard! A long time ago, I made a special page in one of my websites about the Constitution. Of course, many parts of it are confusing for me, but overall, I do know the Constriction.
The Constitution of the United States

Those times I've left a comment in LJ friend's journals, or Communities - I have no earthly idea why I’ve attracted nasty comments from total strangers! What bitterly stung me most this time was her insane comment about CHILDREN!

I hope the owner of the LJ where this happened isn't too angry at me, but I hope he'll understand that I had to spit this out for my own mental (RAGE) well being.

Her problem is probably two-fold. First, she is afraid, so in her case the terrorists have won. Second, you most-likely said you would get rid of her political party, and by extension her. Leaving aside her hyperbole and personal insults and insinuations, I can understand from where she is coming.

It is surprising that one of the things you would wish to do is violate the first amendment rights of a large number of people, including me. The Republican party, AKA the GOP, would be your opposition party. Elected or not, one of the first things authoritarian regimes do is outlaw or in some other way get rid of the opposition when they come into power.

I am curious. Would you want to take most of the law making powers away from the state and local governments and hand that law-making power over to the federal government?

P-L-E-A-S-E! The writer's block was a pretend question, and my answer was a total fantasy. Had I continued, I would have added that there would never be war, plus I'd make it law to put a chicken and black-eyed-peas on all American's table!

And don't be so surprised by my law of taking away the GOP, because I know that in MUCKING REAL life it's impossible, nor would I even think to do so. My answers were pretend, not reality.

Re: reality...
Then, you really didn't answer the question.

Re: reality...
Dave, your question has no relevance on this post, since my answer to the writer's block question was not a serious answer, but more as fun or fantasy.
Feb. 28th, 2011 06:25 pm (UTC)
Davey said it well.

I dislike the GOP, but I wouldn't advocate getting rid of it. Totalitarian control by one party would make this country worse, not better.

Read davev1968's reply I gave.

Meat is gross. I don't like your fantasy world!

Re: davev1968...
I made that post because it hurt me terribly, and you come up with that, you Benedict Arnold!

I don't like you PERIOD, and I DO NOT WANT a Benedict Arnold as a LJ pal.

The time has come for both of us to part!
Don't reply, just DELETE!

*hugs you tight*

Hugs you back!

Politics is a serious matter but when people become enraged over Writers' Block then it's taking things a bit far.
I would never support a dictatorship but, in my little fantasies, I wish the Conservative Party here didn't exist.

Yes, politics is a serious matter, and when I make posts about politics in my journal, I'm dead serious, unlike the answer I gave for that writer's block.

I'm glad you have your fantasies, unlike a certain Benedict Arnold who found my fantasies gross.

Thank you FRIEND for making me feel better!

Re: fantasies...
Fantasies are just that: fantasies!
I joked in my journal yesterday about poisoning my colleagues but I wouldn't so much as make them a bad cup of coffee IRL.

I think I accidentally send you a post by "anonymous". I commented that I thought she took the question too seriously. And I thought the portion of the question that said, "Paint the White House blue? Tell All!", would've been a clue to go funny or bizarre, if desired.

You're a wonderful Mommy to your furry children. You'll be equally wonderful for human children, too. (((Hugs)))
Feb. 28th, 2011 10:11 pm (UTC)
Paint the White House blue...
I took care of it, Tweet-Pie. :-)

That's exactly what the clue was for me; not to be serious, but just write something fun.

It's comical how one bumps into nut cases in cyberspace.

Thank you FRIEND, for making me feel better!

I wouldn't take the comments from Horrible Woman personally. She sounds like an angry frightened woman who has lost a lot of perspective on life.

Of course, it could have been written by some wise guy who thought he'd be funny.

At any rate, it doesn't sound like a serious response from a relatively same person.

Feb. 28th, 2011 10:19 pm (UTC)
I never do take their insults personal, but this woman bit my Achelles Heel when she insulted me about children.

No, she wasn't trying to be funny; the woman was enraged.

Thank you FRIEND, for making me feel better!

she picked children...
I do, too.

Not only did I ever mention children, but neither did I say a word about Islamist terrorists, palace coup, or getting rid of the Army!

The irony of it all is, that I love children and the military just as much as I love animals. I also love a lot of other things.

Thank you FRIEND!

Yeah, anyone that reacts that strongly to a fantasy answer to a hypothetical question has some issues.

I had my head bit off a month or two ago. *shoulder shrug* I figured the person was young (s/he had mentioned being a college student, although I am also a college student!) and did not respond to her/his retort.

(((big hugs))) to you from me
Mar. 1st, 2011 10:26 pm (UTC)
I've had my entire head bitten off many times, I've lost count! I try to keep as far away as possible from people, both in cyberspace and real life, who force you to walk on egg shells. I'm sorry you had to experience it, but people like that are neither here nor there.

The only reason this woman upset me was because her comment about children hit a raw nerve in me, which is really ironic. Someday, I'll make a post as to why her "children" comment upset me more than anything in this world could have.

Hugs my darling and brilliant friend!

AS I have told you before we all have the God given right to be assholes, some people like this woman takes advantage of this right way too much. Apparently she does not understand the concept of hypothetical situations.

Don't let her bother you because I am sure she has some distasteful ideas as well. Maybe she found your words as alarming as you find Sara Palin's words, neither has any real foundation but it is what it is. WHo knows. Just blow her off as someone who does not matter!
Mar. 1st, 2011 10:29 pm (UTC)
One things for sure, that woman wouldn't have dared say those things to me in front of my face. One look from me to her would have clammed up her ugly mouth!

Her nasty rambling proved to me she is a nut case.

You've taught me well how to blow unpleasant people away, daddy!
Love you!

We all get them at one time or another. I believe that woman has gotten off the wrong side of her bed since the day she was born.

I shall call you a "Sweetie"! and i won't take it back!
Mar. 1st, 2011 10:19 pm (UTC)
I know, because you're a TRUE LJ friend!
Mar. 2nd, 2011 03:49 am (UTC)
The owner of that LJ isn't angry with you at all and believes, I'm sure, that you would have been well within your rights to return fire at will. However, I'm also sure he appreciates what it took for you to refrain from doing so, out of thoughtfulness for him. :)
Mar. 5th, 2011 01:49 am (UTC)
I hope so. The owner of that journal was my main concern, because I value his friendship immensely. I had to seriously bit my tongue to the point that it bled heh heh, but it was well worth it, since it would have been a very difficult situation for him.
