Deleted Comments Of The Day: Why No Sympathy For Suffering Of White Slaves, Who Had It The Worstest?

It has been a quiet week in our woebegone comments queue. Obviously, we’re not being outrageous enough; we’ll work on that. Fortunately, an older post attracted the attention of a reader who wanted to let us know that our understanding of the Old South is seriously skewed. In response to a piece we did back in July when Rush Limbaugh said that white people have never gotten sufficient credit for the awesome job they did of ending slavery, would-be commenter “sonyammmsavoy” added that Limbaugh has only scratched the surface, because the biggest victims of slavery were actually the whites (all spelling and punctuation guaranteed verbatim — nothing added, nothing corrected): Whites pick cotton side by side with the blacks and blacks were treated better then the whites the slave master good afford to kill us because whites slaves were cheaper so they didn’t mind beating whites and were were made to sleep outside and the blacks got the slave quarters . We didn’t know half of that stuff, possibly because we have never read the seminal work American History As Pulled Out of This One Guy’s Ass. And if you think that was something, check out sonyammmsavoy’s astonishing truths about the ugly history of rape and slavery (spoiler alert: whites become the victims).

Best Paultard Spam Of The Week

Ever since we called the Paultard’s Dec. 16th moneybomb an “abject failure,” Wonkette’s inbox has flooded with spambot hate mail the likes of which we’ve never (well, rarely) seen. Among the things we’ve learned the last two days: (a) We “neo-libs” fawn over Bill Clinton (b) I “am a child,” but “Ron Paul is a man” and (c) the word “slatternly” can be used without irony. But there’s just too much to recount briefly, so after the jump, we bring you some of the best Paultard mail of the week. Maybe we’re trolls, but at least we’re not abject failures.

Paultards Suffer Crushing Reality Check

The War on Paultards reached a turning point yesterday, and the spambots — very, very serious this time — are gasping for breath on the Internets today. A flood of spam in late October promoting Ron Paul has been traced to criminal spambots in Ukraine — about 3,000 of them! — that targeted over 162 million e-mail addresses. So. Now. Will these Paultards stop pretending they are real humans? Read more on Paultards Suffer Crushing Reality Check…
 

The Spambots Are Attacking! RUN!

This is what your G-mail looks like when certain spambots detect a blip from your IP address that you’ve been disrespecting their master. This example from my Wonkette inbox bears all the hallmarks of a classic Paultard hit-and-run: domains such as “juno.com,” “netzero.com” or that deadliest of foes, “info.us”; claims that if you’re not for Paul, you’re for Hillary; lazy inconsistencies like “4 PRESIDENT” vs. “FOR PRESIDENT!”; and finally, body text that offers you quick credit without background checks. After the jump, some other e-mailed comments from the suddenly mobilized Paultard herd. Read more on The Spambots Are Attacking! RUN!…
 

Your “Angry Paultard Response E-mail With Poor Grammar” Post of the Day

Eh, so what if it’s trolling. These e-mails are too precious! In response to this Ron Paul post: No I’d have to say that they are very smart. I mean why even write something like this. The man has the only points worth talking about. Matter of fact they are vital to the health of this country. We cannot afford business as usual. If your going to write a hit piece do it with some authority. In this case that is impossible the man is honest, experienced and has integrity with unimpeachable character……nice try. Stiiiiill waiting on that new spam filter. Read more on Your “Angry Paultard Response E-mail With Poor Grammar” Post of the Day…
 

Ron Paul Wins NY Straw Poll, NY a Stupid State

Three of the worst things in the world — Paultards, New York City and Republicans — combined Tuesday in a digital fantasy world known as the “Metropolitan Republican Club” to vote in the New York State Republican Straw Poll. The results were announced yesterday, and it’s clear that some alien spambots must have hacked into the voting system. Read more on Ron Paul Wins NY Straw Poll, NY a Stupid State…
 

What a Paultard Spambot Looks Like

Take a good look at the enemy in blue on the right. This is a sniveling “moneybomber” bot, one of many that donated $4.3 million to Ron Paul’s campaign yesterday. They are electronic, wear blue and have lots of money to waste. Send this to the Gmail admins if you ever hope to see enhanced spam filters. Because, like the HIV virus, the illegal alien Paultardobots have been evolving faster than current technology. [AP Photo via WP] Read more on What a Paultard Spambot Looks Like…
 

Paultard: I Am Not A Zombie Or A Retard!

Somewhere deep in the frozen confines of the Internet, a legion of illegal alien spambots known as “supporters of Rep. Ron Paul for president” turned their cold laser eyes towards Wonkette this weekend, “destroy” being their only directive. We’ve ripped on the ‘tards a lot recently and definitely saw this coming. But they really are kind of retarded. And spambotic. Read more on Paultard: I Am Not A Zombie Or A Retard!…
 

Paultards Revealed To Be Robot Spammers

In their continuing quest to destroy the world, Ron Paul supporters have been stepping up their spamming efforts through the employ of rogue spambots. According to the University of Alabama-Birmingham’s computer forensics research department — which has some project where they read spam messages all day — many of the Paultards’ e-mails are “clearly not coming from Ron Paul’s official campaign, but rather illegitimate spam operations and botnets.” Read more on Paultards Revealed To Be Robot Spammers…
