    A piece in today’s Süddeutsche Zeitung made me think of your post, Peterr.
    “Satirischer Umgang mit Extremismus”

    The event in Wunsiedel that the writer refers to can be read about in English here at the Guardian:
    “German town tricks neo-Nazis into raising thousands of euros for anti-extremist charity”

    Well that was a morning well spent! Thank you Peterr for the, as always, excellent links.

    One quote from your HCN/ The Goat link regarding the BLM story, which I was unfamiliar with, really struck me: “Over the years, the Department of Justice has more than once canceled BLM plans to round up the trespass cattle after blatant threats of violence from Bundy and his supporters….”

    These people have really turned the 2nd amendment on its head, using it to threaten the State that it was intended to protect.

    Thanks for a great post!

    I grinned ear to ear rereading that old post of yours, Peterr, and shed some tears, as well. To Scarecrow. *DING*

    Best wishes to you and your family, Peterr, and to all my fellow firepups.

    No need to apologize. I had to look up the spelling, too. :-)

    Thank you so much for this topic, Elliott. I tend to watch the oldies again and again and again, but I’m always looking for new ones. I recently saw one that I don’t think was mentioned yet, “The Fall” with Gillian Anderson. Here’s a link to a review of it at the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2013/may/13/the-fall-skint-tv-review?CMP=twt_gu EF [...]

    Thanks so much for your post, Peterr. With respect to how this will affect Merkel politically, I don’t hold out much hope that she will suffer any consequences; she never seems to. You probably remember that in one of the diplomatic cables that was made public via Wikileaks, it was revealed that the US embassy in Germany referred to her as “teflon” Merkel and I think they were right on the mark. Truly in Ronald Reagan’s league!

    I have to admit that I don’t really know what to write here. I usually don’t respond to comments like Ohio Barbarian’s, afraid that my words will just lead to an escalation and take away from the original post. And I guess I’m always hoping that if such comments are ignored, the people who write them will eventually just go away.

    But I am sad to see that Peterr’s is the only response today. He should not be alone here to defend himself. WE should be sitting here right beside him. That’s what communities do. (Of course Peterr is more than capable of defending himself :-), but that’s not the point.)

    Ohio Barbarian, either you are so self-absorbed that you really do have no clue about Peterr’s writings, or you’re being disingenuous. Were you so blinded by anger yesterday, that it didn’t matter who you directed it at, and just by chance chose someone who over the course of many years has earned the deep respect of just about anybody who has been lucky enough to read his words?

    Or did you choose one of his posts intentionally, because you know he’s not someone who will respond in kind?

    I don’t know what motivated you to lash out like that. But Peterr and FDL are not your enemy. You owe Peterr an apology.

    Peterr, I’m so sorry for writing this comment, which will distract even further from the topic of your post, a very important one to so many people, whether they’re LGBT or not. We know that there’s a strong possibility that this court will decide against equality and your thoughts here will help people be prepared, to help them keep some perspective and hang onto hope. I for one will be very glad to have read this post, if the decisions should go the wrong way.

    But not responding to OB was not an option.

    “…something to celebrate, not cure…. something to affirm, not belittle.” Beautifully put, Peterr. Thanks for the post!

    Thank you Elliott. What a lovely idea! How about a Ted Baxter knock-knock joke. *G*

    I have been wondering and wondering where you were. You can’t possibly know how much your comments and posts have meant to me over the years, many years. Looking forward to your next one very soon!

  • Thanks so much for your tremendous coverage today, David!
