The coordinated tag-team efforts of the Obama Administration and the media to encourage blacks to riot for more political power and feminists to frame innocent men for rape has led straight white men increasingly to defend themselves … in the comments.

A few years ago, numerous web publications had adopted the strategy of posting strikingly stupid articles attempting to insult core Americans for being core Americans, and then counting for advertising revenue purposes everybody who comes to the comments section to laugh at the article.

(Do these scoffing commenters actually buy from the advertisers who pay for the anti-white and anti-male clickbait? Nobody seems to have looked into this yet.)

Still, all this impudent backchat from those on the wrong side of history has enraged even further those who hold the Megaphone. Public dissent threatens their emotional comfort. Worse, the white guys in the comments section tend to be pretty good at punching holes in the articles.

Hence, we”€™re now seeing a backlash against letting readers have a say.

For example, back on November 29th, the editorial board of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch confidently proclaimed:

Let’s have this conversation.

Let’s talk about race. We know it’s going to be awkward, no matter how well-intentioned. We know it makes both blacks and whites uncomfortable.

But on December 8th, the defeated Editorial Board declared:

For the next two months, we are turning off the comment function on all editorials, columns and letters in the opinion section.



Last Sunday, we challenged our region to have the serious discussion on race that it has been avoiding for decades. …

We intend to use our opinion pages to help the St. Louis region have a meaningful discussion about race. So we are going to turn off the comments …

In other words, as translated from Megaphonics:

Dummy up, you newspaper-reading morons! Don’t you understand that when an editorial board announces it wants to “€œhave a conversation,”€ the last thing it wants to have is a conversation? “€œA discussion”€ is editorial board code for “€œShut up and listen to us lecture you.”€
