There are some people in the world whose very existence makes you so sick at heart that you feel your skin is going to spontaneously combust every time you think about them because your loathing of them is so very flammable.
This journalist dude Daniel Lazare is one of those people for me. He writes for left-wingy magazines so by law I am supposed to like him. He also might be Jewish, and I’m not supposed to talk trash about my peeps, or whatev. I’m supposed to reserve my combustable ire and unmitigated loathing for right-wingers, I know. I’m not supposed to contribute to the long-standing tradition of liberal infighting. But, beloved citizens, I challenge you to read some of his claptrap and not feel the way I do.
I first became aware of his particular brand of shitwriting when he wrote a truly horrific book review of a book on the history of vegetarianism for The Nation. After I had painstakingly described, sentence by sentence, the myriad errors in his thought, history, writing style, etc etc, I just gave in to my anger and started attacking him personally.
The Nation, shockingly, did not print my letter.
Now I see that Alternet, my beloved homepage, has printed a piece of his on why atheists are losers! Oh Daniel Lazare, you are the antichrist! Why do atheists get out of bed in the morning? That’s easy: there is a slight chance they might run into you on the street and could spit in your fucky little face!
As you can see, progressive publications MUST stop publishing his tripe! And so I am launching a one-woman campaign against the idiocy-in-the-form-of-a man that is Daniel Lazare. I will keep you regularly updated. People, I have signed up for a Google alert of his name. I’m on top of it. The people, united, can never be defeated! Fuck Daniel Lazare! I am literally on fire!!
