What a bunch of idiots. Radley in no way argued for the legality of child porn and I seriously doubt that Ogden did either. Just because you oppose a law doesn’t mean you support the behavior it’s regulating. The culling of all reasonable people from the GOP continues.
Wow… It’s pretty clear these guys belong to that category of people whose own worst enemy is their own words. They’re so far out in the weeds they’re not even worth the time or dignity of a response.

Radley, I’ve been called alot of things, among them (for my political leanings specifically) naive, cynical, stupid, dangerous, foolish, thoughtless, ridiculous, etc. But I’ve always been shooting for “subversive.” Congratulations, Radley, you’re living the dream.
Wow, it is hotlinked! What kind of humorous lesson could you teach bandwidth-stealing authoritarians posing as libertarians?

By the way, I think it’s hilarious that they have your picture, but don’t mention your name. Of course, they don’t use their own names on this disreputable rag either, so maybe that’s fitting. And really, the title of the previous post, “Cloddish Obama wacks his head on the Side of Marine One – So Debonair!” tells you everything you need to know about the RLC: They’re trolls who have started their own blog. By the way, the pic makes you look tired, maybe you should take a break, have a toke. I’m sure the RLC would love that. I’d guess those “real libertarians” would have some way to support drug prohibition too.

BTW, and this is my last BTW for this post, I swear: Their comment registration system is really slow. Are we overusing it? I hope so.
please please please, give those ‘libertarian’ bandwidth thieves a lesson on virtual-property rights.
every time i hear ‘conservatives’ calling libertarians ‘lefties’, i like to call them ‘socialists’. just look at our records and see who’s name calling is closer to the truth.
it’s painfully obvious that mr. balco does not in any way advocate child porno. if i hold my standards as high as the author of that article, it would be equally valid to say “puma advocates child pornography, what a jerk.”
Why didn’t you warn me, Radley, of the content of that article. I now have to clean up a big mess from spewed Diet Pepsi and brain matter because my head exploded. It is impossible to debate crazy people evidently…
Apparently not just a lawyer who defends someone accused of child pornography in court, but someone who defends said lawyer on a blog, must be a pro-pedophile “liberal” (which of course they all are). Thank God no one pays any attention to the RLC.
What exactly were they responding to, anyway? It couldn’t have been to the post I read from you yesterday.
It’s standard authoritarian bootlick stuff. Find an overwrought, overly broad law that a person opposed passage of, then say they “support” whatever the most emotionally loaded issue of said law was “intended” to prevent. Lather, rinse, and repeat.
Personally, I don’t have many good things to say about child porn laws or the crusaders responsible for them. Most of them aren’t even directed at child pornographers and have nothing to do with protecting children at all. In fact, if the government got out of the child porn distribution-for-entrapment business, there would be a lot less of it around. It’s one thing to pass laws protecting children. It’s another when you use protecting children as a justification for completely obliterating rights that comprise the very core of what (supposedly) makes the U.S. different from other countries.
I don’t believe computer games cause violent crime or that sex on TV causes pregnancy or that flag burning makes you a traitor or that porn causes rape or that child porn causes child rape. Because if you took away all of the so-called causes, you would still have bad people who do bad things.
Nothing makes me more suspicious of a public crusade than when people are too terrified to openly question it for fear of being branded as a menace by an hysterical crowd whose thinking is all in perfect tune.
So there. If you want to hate someone, hate me. I just defended child porn (or did I?), therefore I must be a child pornographer (right?).
Cultural Marxism would refer to Marxist theory specifically directed toward the effects of art and media on politics and ideologies. Applied cultural Marxism, just like applied Marxism (which is sort of self-contradictory), results in the state taking an active role in the production and distribution of these “products”. Radley Balko is not a cultural Marxist. What the RLC must have meant was cultural pinko queer pedophile.
So he uses forbes.com to search for Radley’s articles on foxnews.com . . . and he’s a bandwidth thief. Anyone else get the impression that this moron has ZERO clue as to what he’s doing on the interwebs? And after reading his attempt to make Radley look like a fraud, I am reminded of the old Mark Twain saying . . . something about it is better to be silent and appear the fool then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
But an investigation by the RLCIL demonstrates that Mr. Balko has taken extreme liberties
An investigation by the RLCIL?!? They looked at his bio and did a (piss-poor) search? “Investigation”?!? “By the…”?!? It should read…
I, crazy person in basement with Reagan poster on the wall claiming to be an actual organization, smashed my palms on my keyboard many times. When Sean Hannity failed to appear in my sandwich, like he does each day at 4:00pm to issue my instructions, I insanely and randomly concluded that Mr. Balko has taken extreme liberties. The aliens will beam another post directly into my head in approximately 12 minutes.
…And then people wonder how the people of IL continually reelect Democrats like Blagojevich, Daley, and Stroger. It’s because there is no legitimate alternative, only complete and utter whackjobs. I vote for whoever is not the incumbent in pretty much every election which has me voting a very Republican ticket. But that said, if there were an actual chance of some of these nutcases winning, I’d have to take a hard look at whether they’d be better or worse than the whackjobs we already have in office.
