Oh shut up, Damo

It's often enjoyable to see how little heat SJWs are comfortable taking. They can't stand much in the way of criticism and they seem to spend a considerable amount of time monitoring what others think and say about them in order to quickly jump in and try to steer the narrative away from anything they think looks bad.

This Twitter exchange was particularly funny, given that Damien Walter is always quick to heap obloquy on Larry Correia, me, and other writers whose politics he dislikes:
D Franklin @D_Libris
Why is it that almost every Damien Walter article can just be replied to, justifiably, with "Oh shut up, Damo"?

Damien Walter @damiengwalter
.@D_Libris Excuse me, I asked you to explain your claim that it was "justifiable" to tell me to "shut up Damo". I'm going to keep asking.

Novel deVice ‏@noveldevice
@D_Libris you didn't @ him so literally if he doesn't want to see it he can just stop vanity searching. Boom.

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
.@D_Libris If that's your justification for your continued rude and aggressive behaviour, so be it. I've requested that you stop.

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris
.@damiengwalter saying that I've been rude and aggressive doesn't make it so. Coming into my mentions and harassing me for a day, though...

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
@D_Libris I've asked you to explain why you consider it 'justifiable" to tell me to "shut up Damo" you still have not done so.

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris
.@damiengwalter bcs you won't. Bcs I don't have authority to make you. Bcs it's a common, unthreatening phrase.

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris
Added to which, because you wouldn't have seen it if you hadn't gone looking... Nor would you see people saying it

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
.@D_Libris Then I'm telling you it's neither. Neither is your repeated rude and aggressive behaviour. I'm requesting, again, that you stop it.

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
.@D_Libris I have a search open for articles I write for the Guardian, that's standard practice so i can monitor the response.

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
.@D_Libris If you search the URL, you'll see yours stands out as personally abusive when no others are.

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
.@D_Libris If you want to make criticisms, please do so constructively without personal insults.

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris Jan 20
@damiengwalter "shut up" is personally abusive? How about spending a day poking at someone, & trying to set your followers on them?

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter Jan 20
@D_Libris If you don't believe it's rude and aggressive, then I'm informing you it is and asking you not to repeat that behaviour.

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris
@damiengwalter I notice that Patrick Nielsen Hayden is not being called rude, & indeed you proudly retweeted his comment?

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris
@damiengwalter so it's only people with platforms smaller than yours who you object to the perceived rudeness of?

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
@D_Libris I'm telling you that I find your repeated personal attacks rude and offensive. Will you respect my request to stop them?

D Franklin ‏@D_Libris
@damiengwalter I can't stop what I've never done: I have never made repeated personal attacks on you, Damien

Damien Walter ‏@damiengwalter
@D_Libris OK. I've made my request, your future actions are your own choice. I'm not continuing any further discussion with you now.

Joseph Tomaras @epateur
In solidarity with @D_Libris, I ask that everyone who's ever found a @damiengwalter article moronic, please tell DGW to shut up.
The reason, of course, is that Damien Walter hasn't mastered his subject, doesn't do his homework, often doesn't know what he's talking about, regularly fails to distinguish between opinion and fact, and shows no ability to defend his rhetorical positions. That is why "oh shut up, Damo" is all that is required to effectively rebut him.

I don't read his columns, there is no reason to do so. He's boring even when he's trying to be offensive. At least with the likes of McRapey there is usually an entertainingly manic edge to the nastiness.

It's funny how often "monitoring the response" turns into "silencing the response" with these vile Bolsheviks.

Blogger Nate January 24, 2015 12:18 PM  

I think this relates to AC's theory. They are unable to deal with even the slightest adversity... so even some no one saying something so innocuous on twitter is more than they can take and they have to silence that behavior.

Blogger Nate January 24, 2015 12:19 PM  

Moral to the story: Put your kids in difficult situations and let them fail. Let them struggle. Let them deal with the adversity.

Ive concluded that twitter is a place for 6 year old's. Sandboxes, toy trucks and dolls replaced wit Ipads computers and tablets, mentality the same. Now if you will excuse me I got some of my own business to mind.

Blogger Salt January 24, 2015 12:20 PM  

I'd give him a "oh shut up, Damo" but I've been blocked.

Blogger Nate January 24, 2015 12:24 PM  

outlaw... six year old interaction is a great deal more emotionally mature than twitter.

Salt, kicked out of his sandbox.

Blogger Jack Aubrey January 24, 2015 12:30 PM  

I'm not much of a Twitter user but shouldn't this generate a new hashtag or something? Something like #OhShutUpDamo?

OpenID crazdmadman January 24, 2015 12:33 PM  

A better title would have been "When rabbits fight".

Both of them are whiny passive agressive twits.

See, he's a nice authoritarian. Why does this remind me of that monty python skit...

Silence your critics by stalking them, threatening them and falsely accusing them of stalking and threatening you. Nice.

On the other hand, if someone truly wants Damian Walter to shut up, they should pay him to talk.

Anonymous NateM January 24, 2015 1:13 PM  

That's nothing. Yesterday I got @sweetharturbald to admit he thought laws against bigamy and bestiality were dehumanizing. Cruelty Fu seems to be the art of study for the Ilk

I would have just told him to put his big boy pants on and stop acting like an ass.

Anonymous hygate January 24, 2015 2:03 PM  

and then I would have given him examples of "rude and aggressive comments" such as, "Whenever I pop a pimple on my ass I name it Damian Walter first."

Because if you don't kick them from time to time, they eventually find their courage and start sniping regularly at you. Notice that every single one of my primary critics has eventually reached the point that they're reluctant to even mention my name because they don't want to deal with the incoming fire.

The only one who didn't was Andrew Marston, and that was because there is something seriously wrong with him.

That exchange is just abnormal. Andrew Marston may have more serious issues than most, but all these people have something wrong with them. AC's theory... yeah.

Somewhat off topic:

Teresa Nielsen Hayden is in the hospital (sounds like a stroke from the Twitter chatter). First she gets fired, then hospitalized... bad month for her.

Blogger Joshua Dyal January 24, 2015 6:09 PM  

Most likely it's the "narcissist stroke" AC talks about.

Blogger Cataline Sergius January 24, 2015 6:26 PM  

In the past year the SJWs have managed to move from thin-skinned to no-skin-whatsoever. The slightest breeze of opposition now brings unbearable agony.

My favorite piece of SJW assholery from last year was their twitter blocker. An attempt to turn the internet into a safe zone, which also managed to block a bunch of them.

I was immediately reminded of, "The Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal is a wild animal from the planet of Traal, known for its never-ending hunger and its mind-boggling stupidity. The Guide calls the bugblatter the stupidest creature in the entire universe - so profoundly unintelligent that, if you can't see it, it assumes it can't see you."

Blogger Cataline Sergius January 24, 2015 6:29 PM  

Although perhaps this is more accurate.

Some people shoot praire dogs for fun. Personally I think that's cruel. Especially if you read up on them. But then, I come from a family of hunters, and hunters are sensitive souls.
SJWankers though, sniping at them purely for sport is entertainment. I try to see how much I can send them into tailspins for fun.
Vox is right, several of them have taken to simply avoiding any response to me after they had a round or two. It's interesting in light of AC's theory.

That guy is such an enormous gaping pussy, that any woman he enters into a relationship with is technically a lesbian.

Castalia house should offer to publish it, just to get him over the writer's block.

I was up at the cabin on the lake when I heard a commotion outside. From the distance of many years I would describe it as a cacophony of shrieking by a couple of birds.

When I went to investigate, I found a robin and one of her young. The robin was chirping incessantly, and the young one, who was without mature feathers, was standing, shrieking, with a couple of maggots crawling in and out of its head.

When I smacked it with the shovel to end the suffering, the mother just went away.

Probably never thought about it again, I imagine.

And when I came upon them, the mother robin did not fly away in fear.

Nate, your comment has made me seriously think about how I'm raising my daughter. I think I need to make some changes.

how the novel was coming along

Well... actually, there was something... (rumbling through the trash can)... Yes, found it :

My Lovesick Zombie Boy Band: & weirder tales [Kindle Edition] Damien Walter (Author)

When her talents as a witch and her fetish for stupid boys with spikey hair get out of hand, Fred finds herself on the run from her very own lovesick zombie boy band. Nine weird tales of lost gods, demonic dating sites and dusty antique shops all in one tiny book.

A minuscule collection of teeny weeny stories by Damien Walter.

Blergh. Back in the rubbish bin with you. (Wash hands.)

That book sounds like something a bunch of guys in my 9th grade english class would have come up with just to be what 14 year old boys are and push buttons.
