On twitter tonight:
And you thought epistemic closure was a thing of the right? The notion that Jon Hamm, because of his role in Mad Men, can not talk about injustice is as stupid as assuming the actors who played SS soldiers in Schindler’s List are anti-Semitic.
For fuck’s sake.

The saddest thing about this is it was someone I liked to read, someone who made me think out my very sheltered white box- someone who said shit like this:
He’s right. He’s fucking right. Yes, what Limbaugh did to Fluke was horrible and unprecedented, but it is nothing compared to the three year assault Limbaugh and his boys have done on Michelle Obama. I may not have agreed with everything he said, but he made me think. But the moment he was challenged, he reverted to douchebag. That’s pretty sad for a brave truth-teller.
Hell, I’d give him front page status if he could get his shit together. I like a fight. I like an argument. I like different viewpoints.
But I have no respect for people who cut and run or people who throw bombs and then at the slightest returned fire wet themselves and scream “game over.”
