Son of Feminism & Justice The Rabble.ca Way

Hard to believe it’s possible but it gets worse. Seems the Innocence of the Duke University Boys caused a major meltdown among the feminista’s at Babble (see earlier post). So much so that Michelle the Dhimmi moderator called a time out and cranked up a whole new thread to address the injustice of it all.

Enjoy the latest episode of Feminists at Work, all our favourites show up, Michelle the Dhimmi, Bigcitygal – Official Babble Race-Baiter, Remind the Unmedicated and a host of others:

Topic: This board is really unwelcoming to anti-racist people of colour.

Michelle:

“I’ve reviewed what happened over the weekend while I was away sick. I see that a lot of feminists were very unhappy with what happened in several threads, and it was kicked off by the Duke rape thread.

I also see something else that is happening. We have very few anti-racist people of colour posting on babble. Those that we have, including bigcitygal, are marginalized, isolated, taunted, and basically treated like shit by privileged men who think it’s their right to trample all over whatever discussion and analysis that women of colour and their allies on this forum are interested in having.

bigcitygal tried to really talk about the Duke rape case from an anti-racist feminist point of view, and she was completely pilloried in that thread. I’m incensed at this. I’m incensed at myself for not stopping it, and for not even completely recognizing it.”

Bigcitygal is not an anti-racist person of colour, she is a race-baiter on the order of Sharpton or Shabazz who was called out for insisting the Duke Boys were guilty, guilty, guilty no matter what the facts said.

Bigcitygal:

“We will disagree about what “really” happened, but those young men were not innocent by any account. (Rape can happen, by the way, without vaginal penetration and without a penis doing the penetrating. Think about it.)”

More Solomon like wisdom from Michelle:

Originally posted by Boze:

For remind to imply that every man accused of rape is guilty is misandrist, can’t you see that? I am not denying rape or denying anyone’s experience when I say that.”

Michelle:

“Oh no you don’t. You don’t get to take this thread and use it to start attacking feminists on babble again. That is most certainly NOT what this thread is for. This thread is to discuss the way this forum has been unwelcoming to anti-racist people of colour, and now you’re calling babble feminists “misandrists”.

A final word from Remind the Unmedicated:

“Another reality is that women and POC, who refuse to be silenced, are seen as being aggressive, antagonistic, or racist and sexist in their own right. Some, perhaps many, fail to see the refusal to be silenced, as per the societal conditioning dictates – imposed upon us from birth – is really assertive behaviour and not aggressive, antagonistic or taunting behavior.”

Uhmm could be, but I suspect it really has more to do with your being an ill-educated left wing Harpie.

    The rabble/babble site was founded as a forum for people like the babble moderators you quote, so they have space on the blogosphere where they can rant and be made to feel comfortable with their prejudices. Their hysterical reaction to the Duke rape case and the decision to disbar Nifong shows what a stunning ignorance they have for the law, i.e., that the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty, and the standard of proof required to establish guilt.

    According to the rabble/babble crowd, the young men accused of rape in this case are guilty, because they are young white men from wealthy families who stood accused of raping a working class black woman. The rabble/babble crowd, by and large, hates others for any number of reasons, including being caucasian, male, middle class or wealthy, having religious faith, and subscribing to ideologies leaning toward the centre or centre right. Any challenge or criticism of the rabble/babble crowd’s opinions in the babble forum is immediately shouted down. Despite this, it is the rabble/babble crowd who complain that their critics are out to silence them. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

  • All too true Pongo. This mindset is prevalent among the left and represents a threat to democracy. Yet they cannot see the forest for the trees, I am often astounded at how blinded they are to the evil of their politically correct ideology.

  • BC & P:

    Thanks for that insight. I agree totally which is why I abandoned Babble. It’s a cesspool for those blinded by their “progressive” ideology and double standards. I remember having a “discussion” with dearest Michelle about the OJ Simpson trial and how I thought the result was perverse….well that unleashed a torrent of abusive “debate” on her part about how ignorant I was about the law…..because as (a person of colour) he was “obviously” innocent and there was a conspiracy to do him in by those white MC racist cops! Of course in the Duke case the shoe is on the other foot and just look at the Babble reaction. I think “Babble” is a great name for the insane and inane diatribes of the close-minded “progressives.” Which is why I avoid it like leprosy.

  • Word to the wise don’t ever get Michelle going on the Black Panthers- she can reach heights of Hysteria unseen by Mortal Men.

  • INP

    And there’s no way that they have as many registered users as indicated by the member number under the posters name. There’s like a cabal of maybe 50 or so hard core whack jobs that post regularly and a few who come and go. Unless they banned thousands of people (which is quite possible) me thinks they’ve been inflating the numbers for appearance sake.

  • Actually Inp the number of hardcore posters is less than 50, maybe around 20 or so now. Since the great schism last year many have left for emasse.ca and bread n roses – the feminist chatboard. All 3 boards do quite poorly as a result, not enough true whackjobs to keep 3 roooms going- I hope.

    The great schism of last year at rabble/babble was provoked by the summary firing of Audra Trower Williams, a babble moderator, by the Management Committee of rabble/babble. This was greeted with outrage by many among the rabble/babble crowd. Despite pleas from supporters of Williams among the rabble/babble crowd, the Management Committee refused to discuss the summary firing of Williams with them, basically telling them it was a done deal, that she was not to be reinstated and this was none of their business.

    This silly episode really illustrates the inconsistencies of the rabble/babble crowd. Rabble/babble routinely posts stories about the summary firing of people, typically in union jobs in favour of outsourcing, and condemns this vociferously. Rebick takes money from trade unions, and trade union money was used to fund rabble/babble. In spite of this, rabble/babble’s Management Committee had no reservations whatsoever in pulling the rug from under Audra Trower Williams and declaring this decision was final. Consequently, a great many of the rabble/babble crowd left and eventually formed a site of their own called enMasse.

    Of course, rabble/babble’s employees are not represented by a trade union. Why would they need trade union representation when their employer has a mandate to promote progressive politics and social justice? If you want an answer to this question, just ask Audra Trower Williams.

    Watching left-wing, nut-jobs implode under pressure of their own hypocrisy can be somewhat invigorating.

  • Without question, that was a fascinating episode in Babble’s history. The threads were among the most viscious I have ever encountered on the web.
