Thanks to Kim for pointing out this lovely bit of excrement over on SL:
Mark Samuels, who started the thread begins with this: “I don’t agree with Hank on everything, and I have no vested interest in defending him. ”
Then why are you doing so?
He goes on, and brace yourself for this: “I understand that he can be abrasive but I don’t think there’s any real underlying malice in him.”
He takes glee in an execution; views anyone not a Christian as an enemy; is a rampant racist when it comes to Muslims, Hispanics, or anyone not like him; views any relgion other than Christianity with contempt; thinks American government and law are based on the “Ten Commandments” (as Bryon pointed out on TODP). But none of that has any malice, does it?
You can read the rest for yourself and view the other responses if you can stomach it.
so what we learned today, is that if you’re a lawyer, a good writer, and have a few awards (including a Stoker), you can be forgiven for your racism, arrogance, and anger with people who aren’t you. I call bullshit on that, and everyone who posted on that thread and agreed with Mark should be ashamed of themselves. If this were one of the Legion, would they still say the same thing? Or are double standards allowed when one has a certain degree of success? Intelligence doesn’t give you a pass on unacceptabe behavior. An asshole is an asshole no matter their IQ.
I want to mention that Bryon’s responses, said far more with the pictures he posted, than everyone else has trying to kiss Hank’s ass with apologies.
