As most of you know, I also have the privilege and honor of being able to post items at folkbum's rambles and rants. And as most of you also know, even though lately my focus has been heavily on the race for Milwaukee County Executive, I do post on various subjects, just not the blathering that emanates from squawk radio.
One of the subjects that I have posted about is my mother, who passed away from breast cancer eight and a half years ago. I loved my mother, and still miss her to this day. As she laid in her hospital bed, with my then-fiancee, now wife at my side, she made sure to tell me that she loved me, and that she was proud of the man I became.
Knowing this, one can imagine my anger when I saw the comments from Fred Dooley on this post. Dooley first wrote:
Throwing around the race card Capper?I pointed out to Dooley that my he was incorrect, as usual, and that my mother was deceased. I told him that I expected an apology for insulting her. Instead of realizing that he went over the top, and being a man about things, the reprobate took it further beyond the pale:
Could it be that Coggs was showing bad form on intruding on someone else's press conference?
Kane is a cartoon....
Inserting labels and throwing them around without an ounce of proof.
That's low for even you.
Your mother must be so proud.
Dream on Capper.Now, I am an adult, and can handle confrontation, as when Dooley started to spread his poisonous vitriol on the blogsite of Fair Play, directing it at anyone and everyone. This is the same Dooley that bans people at the drop of a hat for saying something that he doesn't like. He has even banned Fair Play, who is about as level headed as they come.
You are the one throwing the racism label on the tab.
Writing about someoene[sic] of color does not make someone a racist.
People like you just throw labels around and never accept responsiblity[sic] for your own bad behavior. You would rather attack the scribe than consider that they just might have a point.
I'm sure your mother would not be proud of this side of you, attacking people without cause or evidence. I am sure your activity insults her, and I am sure I have not.
Even more tiresome, like your average blogyard bully, Dooley then goes running home and whines like a spoiled little brat on how everyone is soooo mean to him. In the process, he only spreads more bovine fecal matter than the fertilizer spreaders on any ten farms.
Like I said, I can handle confrontation. He can call me whatever he wants, because it won't bother me. First of all, everyone knows that he is nothing more than a pompous, boorish lout. Second of all, he means nothing to me, and his words have no power over me. But when someone goes after another person's mother, that shows the true wretchedness in that person's soul. What he did is as deplorable as what Michael McGee, Sr. did to Charlie Sykes, when Sykes' mother passed away last year.
