Kate & "The Tattoo"

While taking shots at Warren may be considered "sporting" to many in the BT realm, I can't say I'm a fan of the latest stunt

Posted this in the comments at SDA:

"Sorry Kate & crew, but I'm not a fan of the "gag"... while the temptation to take a shot at Warren may have been strong, I think this one crossed the line, and was a temptation you should have resisted.

Using the suffering of the Holocaust to take a cheap shot at Kinsella wasn't cool... at least not in my books."

And sent a comment to Warren on this one... which he's welcome to post...

"I've stayed out of this whole firestorm that's been brewing in the blogosphere... until now.

The fake tattoo?  Not funny.  A rather juvenile attempt to get a laugh, if you ask me... making a mockery of such death and destruction, just to take a cheap shot at you Warren, well, that's not cool in my books.

It would be really nice if the level of debate on this issue could be raised a few notches.  It's a serious set of issues, and serious action needs to be taken by serious people who can actually do something.  Scrapping the Commissions isn't the answer, but neither is leaving things as they are, because they're a mess.  Ezra has a point in that he should not be facing this tribunal, however, it's been dealt with by his supporters in a completely unacceptable fashion.  It's time to offer REAL solutions, not partisan rhetoric.

    Kate didn't make a mockery of anything but the big smoke-blower. It was the Lionel Hutz of the Canadian blogosphere who took the long walk on a short logic path. He must have pulled law degree out the same crackerjack box Cherniak got his from.

    Insert a 'his' in the appropriate place in the post above.

    Sorry to disagree with you.

    Kate sent a picture of a tattoo on an arm. The tattoo was a series of letters and numbers on the inside of a forearm. Kate then said that she didn't share this with everyone.

    Warren Kinsella in his zeal to shut down "freespeechers" and uphold the sanctity of the HRC's and possibly to please his new masters at the CJC Kinsella leaps to the conclusion that the tattoo was a mark imposed on prisoners held by Nazis and posts it as such.

    Therefore Kate provided the rope with which Kinsella hung himself.
    Please attach blame where it lies. Warren Kinsella has been using the suffering of others to advance his political and possibly personal objectives for quite a while. My hope is Kate has been able to put a stop to it.

    I've got Ecclesiastes l.7:16 tattooed on me:

    "Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?"

    The ghosts of 6 million Jews dance in glee when idiots without brains prove themselves so by trying to exploit "the final solution" for purposes that would recreate the environment of its occurrence.

    Kinsella is well on the path to destroying himself. Some people are attempting to ensure that he will not take down the innocent in the process by giving him rope.

    Bless you, Kate. You have done well.

    remember that Kinsella & his Barney doll show he is anti christian and thinks because he is a devote catholic he can mock Fundamentalists.

    Hung with his own rope and it is a truly wonderful thing.

    Go Kate. Kinsella is a bigot and a fool.

    Hey Fred, as a "fundamentalist" at which Kinsella's Barney doll stunt was directly aimed at, I don't think these "gags" were on the same level.

    While I do think Warren was an idiot for what he did, in that he basically said that no devout Evangelical Christian ought to hold high office in this land (that IS what you communicated via your stunt Warren), he was sharing his opinion in a forum where he had been invited to give his opinion.

    What Kate did was totally different... she deliberately set Warren up, and did so on the backs of the pain and suffering of 6,000,000 Jews to do it.

    Like I said... not cool.

    Who posted the image and to what purpose? Who used it as a crutch to define their point? Who could have spent ten minutes on google?

    Yes, Kate set up Warren, but Warren was the one to to run with the Holocaust as an argument to his ends.

    Cheers,

    Take a good look at that youngish looking arm,
    in that modern photo.
    The holocaust happened sixty (60) years ago!

    The only person at FAULT here is Kinsella,
    for not doing his homework.
    Kinsella is the one USING the holocaust to further is own agenda.
    Comeuppance looks good on him.
