A Note About Sources

Many of you have complained about the fact that I sometimes link to right-wing websites such as Gates of Vienna or Politically Incorrect news. Sometimes I link to left-wing websites. Sometimes I link to cute cat videos. Sometimes I link to flatworm-eating contests in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Let me make clear that I know that these websites are nativist anti-immigrant sites. I have excellent Google-Fu, and can spot political bias a mile away. When I put a link in a post without comment, the purpose is solely to point you to information that confirms what I said in my text. The purpose of the link is not to endorse every single article, picture, and comment on that site. The purpose of the link, I repeat, is solely to point you to information. If the link I cite to has a political bias, I am aware of that fact already. I do not need to be told. Also, I do this blog in my spare time. I will cite to the first website that provides information to back up my claim. I will not waste minutes or hours until I finally get to an ideologically 'non-objectionable' website, if such a thing exists.

If you can direct me to information that disproves what I put in the link, then I would love to hear about that. If you simply don't like the political tendency of the source I linked to, but cannot disprove the facts reported there, I don't care.

I am also aware that Steve Sailer recently excerpted one of my posts about Merkel's Millions. I read Sailer regularly. I do not agree with all of his political positions, and I'm sure he doesn't agree with all of mine. But he's a punchy writer with an original perspective who actually does often highlight important information the mainstream media ignores. If you don't agree, read more of his posts. For every one that has you seething with outrage there will be another that will have you, perhaps grudgingly, saying 'the man does have a point'.

To sum up: if your comment consists of nothing more than clutching your pearls, dropping onto the fainting couch, and exclaiming: "How could you have cited that site?!?", you might as well save the effort.

One thought on “A Note About Sources

  1. All of this is fair and square to most, yet, say, Gero and Horst just can’t be associated with wronglinks, by whatever degree of separation, so it’s hard for them to step forward and state their case. To make my point clearer: Imagine these two, if you will, as minute shrivelled willies, whose concerned owners brought them to the dermatologist as they have a skin condition on top of that. Now the doctor can’t see much, even with a magnifier. So what does he do? He yells at them, of all things, to man up! Then he calls in nurse Wretched with her notoriously clammy claws to manhandle the poor things. Do you think he will be able to see what’s wrong with them? No–that’s just no way to treat dickheads!

    There, I said it, for the sake of argument and reasoned debate. Obnoxious, vulgar, dragging things down? Berate me, why don’t you.
