Without question, the III community’s most influential blogger and news source is Concerned American at WRSA. When I have time to read blogs, WRSA is one that I go to. No, this isn’t about WRSA shutting down. I hope. Calm the fuck down.
CA runs a great site. There’s no fluff to it (ahem), it’s just postings about Liberty. He doesn’t get involved in internet squabbles.
But WRSA is the site for Liberty minded bloggers. I know CA never intended this and probably doesn’t want it, but if you don’t have CA’s nod, your blog ain’t gonna grow. Not on the internet. I would imagine it’s kinda the same thing when you get CA’s disapproval. Same thing with projects – if you have a project and WRSA mentions it, there’s plenty of exposure.
Well, CA disapproves of Courtland Grojean’s tactics. Mightily, in fact.
Read about it below:
This is the first time I’ve seen CA do something like this, flat out condemning somebody. Oh, I know it’s not the first time he’s done it but it happens rarely enough that when it does happen it’s because there’s been such a preponderance of evidence or the level of bullshit has built up so high that it can’t be ignored anymore.
It’s my personal opinion (important words there) that CA thought we we’re doing a good enough job without him having to become involved, so he stayed out of it. No sense in spreading dissension, I was doing just fine by myself. That’s fine. But when ol’ Court made false allegation’s to a man’s boss, endangering his retirement and livelihood just because the man disagreed with him, he stepped over a line. This is not a no quarter battle. It’s not a fucking war. All we did was ask some questions. Had they been answered, even if it wasn’t to our satisfaction, we would’ve had to stop. But he stepped over the line.
He’s done. He finished himself off. He went down in a blaze of stupidity, shooting before he got his guns untangled from his double crossdraw rigs.
CA, thank you for posting what you did. I know you didn’t want to get involved, that was obvious by you not getting involved.
We feel the same guilt about doing folks wrong by sending them to him to begin with. That was a major motivation in my doing this. When I make a mistake, I not only apologize but I try to make it right.
I do hope that you’re just taking a break. I hope that it’s a short one for us but long enough for you.
