You know, if they were going to hurl this kind of crap at me every day, I’d have resigned, too. Not just that they lie about what she said and what that means, they even lie about who they are:
The Catholic League is the nation’s largest Catholic civil rights organization. It defends individual Catholics and the institutional Church from defamation and discrimination.
Yeah, right! Didn’t we just spend the last couple of days showing that this is a loudmouth organization of anal sphincters defending other individual anal sphincters from the – oh, horror! – hearing the truth every now and then.
We do not know the complete story yet, but of course trolls arrived on Kos insisting that she was fired, not that she quit. I don’t know, but I do not expect Amanda to lie – she would have not posted anything until she could post everything.
The dominant mood, though, at comments there and elsewhere is that this means we need to redouble our efforts in countering the rightwing swiftboaters of all kinds, religious nuts included. Especially religious nuts. Not just Donohue-The-Major-Anal-Sphincter.
Also, support Amanda by blogrolling Pandagon and hit her paypal button. If you think she was too mild on Donohue and religion so far, wait until she unleashes her real wrath on them, now that she is free of editorial shackles. This is going to be fun to watch.
