Take this link if you want to see what all the “fuss” is about. A few posts ago I mentioned the Journalism Matters conference recently held in Wellington and the response from the Dominion Post/Press [Christchurch] columnist Karl Du Fresne. My response was published today in The Press. It is this that led Trevor Louden to me and the blog he loaded up earlier today too (linked in an earlier post here).
If Louden’s ignorant slather is supposed to shut me up, or intimidate me (which is how these thugs work), he needs to know that I am not afraid. In fact, it’s interesting that what I wrote has caused him to froth at the mouth. Du Fresne had a similar reaction during our initial meeting in Wellington.
Why are these conservative types so scared of Marxists like me? Is it because I have a reputation for sneaking into homes and eating children? I don’t think so. Rather, it’s because they can’t address or refute the logic of materialism, and so they have to get down and dirty — attack rants are easier to digest than formal, considered arguments.
