Redbaiter, on a vote per comment basis remains as the most poplar commenter on the Whale Oil blog. This is a fact that causes the blog owner and his fawning sycophantic moderation crew some chagrin. How did someone who so often challenges the Whale’s progressive orthodoxy on so many political issues become the most favoured commenter on his blog? “What can we do about it?” one can hear them whispering.
Well, the solution they came up with was a campaign of lies and cowardly completely unproven false allegations, spearheaded by the dirty little prog coward Petal. Or Pete as he at other times calls himself.
Petal has and continues to assert that Redbaiter’s popularity is down to the fact that Redbaiter frequently voted for himself. In other words logged out, deleted cookies or whatever and that he sometimes did this up to 50 or more times a day. What evidence did Petal provide for this smear? None.
When asked for supporting evidence, all Petal has ever come up with is a long convoluted distorted load of absolute rubbish claiming that the pattern of the votes meant they had to be faked. IOW nothing. Petal is a liar and a coward. He wanted to smear and discredit Redbaiter as a counter to his popularity and that is all that is motivating this cowardly and sleazy campaign.
The fact that most of my upvotes were recorded on comments opposing marriage redefinition is the key. Whale and his sycophant Petal never understood that the issue did not really enjoy such widespread support as they believed. There is in fact a mountain of opposition to marriage redefinition, coming from a sector of the population that progressives like Whale and Petal would not likely or frequently come in contact with.
Their ignorance of the real widespread opposition to marriage redefinition though is no excuse for Petal’s lies and cowardice. What he should do is retract and apologise. However that is only what a gentleman or someone with some moral boundaries might do. It would be a clear mistake to expect such behaviour from a dirty little suckholing Prog liar and coward like Petal.
