Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Editor's Note: Today

Re: “Editor’s Note

I've learned a lot during the last few years from reading the comment streams on Safier's blog and on selected other pieces in the Weekly. I appreciate those who take the time to explain their reasoning and how they look at things, especially when I disagree with them politically. It helps me understand the diversity of opinions in local politics and what beliefs (and sometimes fears) certain policy preferences are based on.

The commenter above seems to comment frequently and has a very distinct style, but I've never been able to get a clear view of what he or she believes, beyond that the appropriate way to respond to anyone who questions any point of liberal orthodoxy is to use insults and assertions not backed up by any valid arguments or evidence. One trope is, while insulting another commenter, to assert that the commenter being insulted lacks love and / or compassion. The hypocrisy doesn't seem to register.

Interesting. Puts a new, ironic spin in the term "liberal," doesn't it? As does the Weekly's pervasive failure to delete comments that involve insults and name-calling, in direct violation of their own clearly stated "Comments Policy." Kind of like when TUSD reps say the district puts the wellbeing of the kids and teachers first. It doesn't take a whole lot of observation to recognize the betrayals and inconsistencies.
