Brendan Kelly on Haterz

Posted by - 02:41 PM on 11/25/13
Brendan Kelly's latest blog is about how we all fucking hate each other.
You’re a religious guy? There’s some asshole atheist out there who thinks you’re fucking stuuuupid. You’re into sports? Here’s someone who is angry about the hegemony of warrior/slave culture. You’re angry about the hegemony of warrior/slave culture? We’re just trying to party over here, bro, don’t fucking break my stride with that shit. You just want everyone to have enough food to eat? You’re a communist. You’re quiet? Speak up, loser. You’re loud? Shut the fuck up. It goes on and on like this. Fuck, even if you’re a total centrist on every single position, extremists think you’re a pussy and the rest of us think you’re too nice “to the point of being creepy.” So give that bullshit a rest, kay?

Edit: by this I mean "people hating each-other is something new to us?" rather than "more like AbsoluteHaterz.net."

People have always hated each other and will always hate each other. Funny blog post, but nothing new.

"That’s because people, even people who love the shit out of each other, are just one casual comment about welfare moms or illegal immigrants or gay discos from flipping the thanksgiving table and kicking the shit out of one another."

Haha sad but true, one casual comment is really all that separates it sometimes.

"The true censorship, it’s been said, is not one where all voices are silenced, because in that climate truth will find a way to bubble to the surface, no matter the level of oppression. The TRUE censorship is when all voices have equal weight and the cacophony is so overwhelming that everyone says ‘fuck it’ and just goes back to beating off while the world burns around them."

Yep.

anytime a brendan kelly post goes up, i'm reminded that he picked up on AM!'s gender dysphoria themed lyrics and asked Laura about it on camera TWO YEARS before she announced it and assumed that name. because of that, i do enjoy reading his take on just about anything.
