I reject the idea of “blaming the victim” in most circumstances. Orly Taitz, on the other hand, has actively censored reasonable and factual comments on her web site for the purpose, it would seem, of making her seem a better attorney than she is, and to make what she is doing in the anti-Obama realm more effective than it is. There is a certain element of justice when the targets of her censorship exploit her own vanity for the purpose of ridiculing her.
The moderated strike back
One of the long-time characteristics of the Taitz web site is the publication of comments of fawning praise for Taitz. One memorable comment from Judith called Taitz “Lady Liberty” back in early 2009.
For several months now, Taitz commenters have combined fawning praise with hidden insults in the form of fake names that allude to insulting or sexually-explicit phrases. (Let me hasten to add that I personally have not done this.) Here’s a recent example:
Here’s a short collection of some of the other spoof commenter names from the Taitz web site this week:
- Gaye Barr (gay bar)
- Phillip McKraq (fill up my crack)
- Ricardo Cabeza (dick head, sp.)
- Dick Kerr (dick her)
- F. Hart (fart)
- Verga Grande (big dick, sp.)
- Arnie Benedict (Benedict Arnold)
- Enorme Pene (huge penis, sp.)
- Ben Dover (bend over)
- Mosca De Cerdos (pigs fly, sp.)
- Lt. Col. Hugh Jhass (retired) (huge ass)
- Jacky Hoff (jack off)
- Pyle F. Schit (pile of ….)
There are others I suspect, but that I couldn’t figure out.
